Scientists Have Worked Out The Optimal Dose Of Nature Required For Health And Wellbeing

Scientists Have Worked Out The Optimal Dose Of Nature Required For Health And Wellbeing

It is well-accepted that getting outside is good for both physical and mental health. But now scientists have figured out that we should be spending a minimum of 2 hours outside in nature, per week to promote health and wellbeing. The study published today in Scientific Reports and led by researchers at the University of Exeter in the U.K., considered [...]

Scientists find simple method to extract gold from old phones

Scientists find simple method to extract gold from old phones

Hundreds of tonnes of gold could be recovered from old electronic devices such as smartphones, TV sets and computers each year, thanks to a simple chemical method developed by researchers. Current methods for extracting gold from old gadgets are inefficient and can be hazardous to health, as they often use toxic chemicals such as cyanide, [...]

Scientists Believe Aging Can Drive Progress

Scientists Believe Aging Can Drive Progress

Populations aging gracefully will ultimately drive progress and will likely boost advancements in medicine. Scientists are astonished at the scientific statistical numbers that surround our aging population. People are living longer, and birth rates are declining. The population of people 80 years and over is growing at an amazing rate, and the numbers are expected [...]

To keep soil health, scientists say mix up plant species

To keep soil health, scientists say mix up plant species

Soil health is deteriorating around the globe. A combination of commercial agricultural practices, global warming and pollution are draining nutrients and encouraging the accumulation of contaminants. The solution, scientists say, is biodiversity. New research highlights the importance of soil structure for soil health. As a new paper in the journal Ecology Letters explains, the best [...]
