Volcanoes helped Antarctic organisms survive ice ages, study suggests

If an ice age is coming and you are a lichen in Antarctica, you better hope you live near a volcano. A new study suggests organisms native to the South Pole survived ice ages by huddling in pockets of warmth created by the heat of underground volcanoes. These slightly warmer areas would have kept some parts of the continent ice free and let organisms survive on that land, said Peter Convey, of the British Antarctic Survey

Gay Marriage Will Cause Straight Men to 'Stray' Claims Anti-Gay Researcher (Audio)

Mark Regnerus, a controversial anti-gay researcher, recently claimed that legalizing gay marriage would somehow grant straight men “permission to stray.”

Regnerus made headlines in 2012 after his family structure study was repeatedly cited by anti-gay conservative organizations as evidence that same-sex couples are inferior parents.

However, that was debunked by an internal audit by the journal Social Science Research, which originally published the study, noted The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The study was actually about unstable couples, not specifically gay couples, and their effect on children, but that has not stopped Regnerus from slamming gay marriage, notes GoodAsYou.org (audio below).

During a recent speech to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, Regnerus claimed, “If gay marriage is perceived as legitimate by heterosexual women, it will eventually embolden boyfriends everywhere, and not a few husbands, to press for what men have always historically wanted, but were rarely allowed, sexual novelty and a form of the permission to stray, without jeopardizing their primary relationship.”

“Discussions of openness and sexual partners in straight marriages will become more common,” added Regnerus.

Regnerus also claimed that anal sex between heterosexuals “got a boost from the normalization of gay men’s sexual behavior.”

However, it’s not clear what evidence Regnerus bases his claims on.

Developing nations must act to stop obesity epidemic: WHO

GENEVA: Tighter economic policies and proper regulation can help governments prevent overweight and obesity epidemic in their respective countries – saving the people from serious long-term health consequences including diabetes, heart disease stroke and cancer.

Governments could slow – and even reverse – the growing epidemic of obesity by taking measures to counter fast food consumption, according to new research.

“Countries (like India) where the diet is transitioning from one that is high in cereals to one that is high in fat, sugar and processed foods need to take action to align the food supply with the health needs of the population,” cautioned Francesco Branca, director of the department of nutrition for health and development at the World Health Organization ( WHO).

“Unless governments take steps to regulate their economies, the invisible hand of the market would continue to promote obesity worldwide with disastrous consequences for future public health and economic productivity,” added lead author Roberto De Vogli from University of California.

The researchers from the US and Ireland looked at the effects of deregulation in the economy – including the agricultural and food sectors – and the resulting increase in fast food transactions on obesity over time.

They took a novel approach of taking data on the number of fast food transactions per capita from 1999 to 2008 in 25 high-income countries and compared them with figures on body mass index (BMI) over the same time period as an indication of fast food consumption.

A person with BMI of 25 or more is considered overweight, while one with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese.

The researchers found that while the average number of annual fast food transactions per capita increased from 26.61 to 32.76, average BMI increased from 25.8 to 26.4.

Thus, each 1-unit increase in the average number of annual fast food transactions per capita was associated with an increase of 0.0329 in BMI over the study period.

The BMI figures also reveal how widespread the problems of overweight and obesity are and that people living in the 25 countries are, on average, overweight and have been for the last 15 years, said the study published in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Study shows loss of large carnivores hurts ecosystems

WASHINGTON: The gradual decline of large carnivores such as lions, wolves or pumas is threatening the Earth’s ecosystems, scientists warned on Friday as they launched an appeal to protect such predators. More than 75 per cent of 31 large carnivore species are on the decline, and 17 of them now occupy less than half of their former ranges, says a study published in the American journal Science and dated January 10
