Are phytoestrogens harmful to the hormone balance?

Studies have shown that soya protein consumption has no significant effect on testosterone levels in men. This is because soya protein is rich in phytoestrogens. A 2010 study definitively concluded that consuming 20 grams of soya protein daily for 57 days did not affect testosterone levels in men (Hamilton-Reeves et al., 2010). Other studies investigating the influence of soya products on hormone levels in men also found similar results (Messina, 2010).

Dishwasher tabs contain many harmful chemicals

Surfactants: These substances help break down grease and food residues. If swallowed, they can irritate the mucous membranes and lead to nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Sodium Carbonate (Soda Ash) is a common ingredient for its fat-dissolving and water-softening properties. However, eating or drinking it can irritate your throat and stomach, making breathing hard and causing you to throw up or have diarrhoea. Sodium Percarbonate: When water is mixed with it, hydrogen peroxide and soda ash are released. These chemicals bleach and clean.

Fast, degradable, and climate-neutral – algae as a new bioplastic?

Heterotrophic bacteria such as Cupriavidus necator can already produce PHB bioplastic. These bacteria's energy source is the sugar obtained from crops. Cyanobacteria has a significant advantage in PHB production. To conclude, microalgae can fix sunlight and extract energy from it. As a result, PHB production is CO2-neutral. Indeed, it offers ethical and ecological advantages over using heterotrophic bacteria. PHB production by cyanobacteria is currently still in primary research mode. It could be years before it is ready for industrial utilisation. Last but not least, there is also the question of price. PHB production by heterotrophic bacteria is currently more cost-effective.

Propolis – The Sun Medicine

The natural product propolis is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and promotes wound healing. Honey bees make propolis to seal and clean their hive. They use resin from trees and shrubs, along with wax and saliva. The "building material" also contains vitamins, minerals, and protein building blocks. The composition changes based on where the hive is and what plants are around. The season also plays an important role. The propolis colours vary, making it difficult to prove its effectiveness. The antimicrobial effect is beneficial for bee colonies. Inside a beehive, lots of nutrients lead to higher humidity and temperature. This lets viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites grow fast. The corresponding growth-inhibiting effect on these organisms has confirmed for propolis.

Resources generally become more abundant. Diseases of affluence will shrink. Health costs are lower, especially for people of retirement age. Enjoyment does not mean rewarding active leisure activities. Is consuming sweets and food containing bad fat after sports in nature a good idea? Who wants to feel worse after a holiday than before?
