People Who Strongly Oppose GM Food Think They Know The Most About It, They Actually Know The Least

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a controversial subject. While scientists almost universally agree that GM foods are perfectly safe, sometimes even beneficial, for human consumption (88 percent), very few laypeople agree (37 percent) – that is the largest disparity for any issue that has been tested in this way.  What’s more, according to a paper recently published in Nature Human Behaviour, the laypeople most ardently against GM foods are also the people who know the very least about the topic, even if they themselves think otherwise. It’s the perfect example of the Dunning-Kruger effect (DKE).  For the study, researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder, Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Toronto, and the University of Pennsylvania surveyed more than 2,000 people …

Ever Wondered Why Zebras Have Stripes? A New Study Helps To Explain

If you’re a harmless herbivore, like the zebra, attempting to lay low in an African savannah full of hungry predators, a flashy coat of striped fur might not seem like the best option. However, there could be a useful and unexpected side effect of this dazzling choice of coloration. Oddly enough, black and white stripes appear to protect humans and other animals from horsefly bites and other blood-sucking annoyances. As shown in a recent study in the journal Royal Society Open Science, donning striped body paint could reduce the number of horsefly bites a person receives by up to 10 times. Previous studies have shown that zebras tend to receive fewer bug bites than other similar creatures, but this is the first study to …

The new Impossible Burger is so realistic the human body might not be able to tell the difference.

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images Have you heard of the Impossible Burger? It’s widely considered to be the best vegetarian burger for folks who want a veggie burger that most closely resembles one made from meat. It’s become a massive hit in America, showing up in restaurants across the country and often selling out in popular dining spots. The founders recently unveiled the “Impossible 2.0” during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. In fact, it’s the first ever food product to be displayed by the legendary trade show and reportedly “left the crowd stunned with its smell, texture, flavor and color — almost like a real hamburger.” And the 2.0 is such a masterful approximation of the “real thing” that …

The two reasons so many Dems are likely running in 2020

(CNN)At this point, the question really shouldn’t be which Democrats are running for president, but rather can the few Democrats who are not running please identify themselves? In the last three days, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro formally declared his candidacy, while Rep. Tulsi Gabbard told CNN’s Van Jones that she plans to announce her own candidacy in the coming week. Simple: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Yes, these two politicians, who could not be more different, are the reasons for this mad dash to the Democratic nomination, but for vastly different reasons. In short, it’s because when looking at 2020, Trump is there, and Clinton likely isn’t. Let me explain. Clearly, Democrats were going to run …

Bolsonaro sends captured Italian fugitive to Salvini as ‘a little gift’

(CNN)A leftist Italian fugitive has been detained in Bolivia and will be sent to Italy as “a little gift” from far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro to Italy’s hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. “Italian terrorist Cesare Battisti was arrested in Bolivia this evening and will soon be brought to Brazil, from where he will probably be taken to Italy so that he can serve a life sentence,” Martins wrote on Twitter. Bolsonaro, inaugurated as President on 1 January, had vowed to capture Battisti and see his extradition through. “A little gift is on its way,” Brazilian MP for Sao Paulo and one of Bolsonaro’s sons, Eduardo, tweeted to Italian Interior minister Mateo Salvini on Sunday, after news of the arrest became …
