    By analysing DNA extracted from the petrous bones of skulls of ancient Europeans, scientists have identified that these peoples remained intolerant to lactose (natural sugar in the milk of mammals) for 5,000 years after they adopted agricultural practices and 4,000 years after the onset of cheese-making among Central European Neolithic farmers. The findings published in the scientific journal Nature Communications (21 Oct) also suggest that major technological transitions in Central Europe between the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age were also associated with major changes in the genetics of these populations. For the study, the international team of scientists examined...

    The human ability to digest the milk sugar lactose after infancy spread throughout Central Europe in only a few thousand years. This is the conclusion reached by an international research team led by Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU). The researchers analyzed genetic material from the bones of individuals who had fallen in a conflict around 1200 B.C. on the banks of the Tollense, a river in the present-day German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania... found that only around one in eight of the assumed warriors had a gene variant that enabled them to break down the lactose in milk. "Of the...

  • These Cheddar-Colored Cargo Pants Carry 3 Lb. of Cheese

    02/02/2022 7:03:11 AM PST · by mylife · 66 replies
    Precisely one week ago my colleague, senior editor MacKenzie Chung Fegan, Slacked our entire team a link to these Party Pants from Tillamook’s new Cheddar Capsule collection. There was no text attached; there didn’t need to be. They’re cheese-colored pants custom-designed for storing a lotta cheese. “​​Finally, I can take cubes of cheddar from the party cheese plate back to my apartment,” said senior social media manager Esra Erol, who is as smart at living as she is at dairy-heisting. (Keep an eye on her around your charcuterie.) As someone whose mother recently accused her of being anti-capitalist, “like that...

    A small group of Alaskan middle-schoolers get a hands-on lesson in hunting and processing food from the land. NIKISKI, Alaska — Before the sun rose on Nov. 11, 10 students from Nikiski Middle & High School had gathered with their teacher, Jesse Bjorkman, at a gas-station parking lot here in this small community on the Kenai Peninsula — to gear up for a moose hunt.Dispersed among five vehicles, the group drove about 10 miles to the Nikiski Escape Route, a gravel road connecting Nikiski to the city of Kenai. Inching slowly down the snowy road, the students peered out each...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Starting Saturday, private health insurers will be required to cover up to eight home COVID-19 tests per month for people on their plans. The Biden administration announced the change Monday as it looks to lower costs and make testing for the virus more convenient amid rising frustrations. President Joe Biden faced criticism over the holiday season for a shortage of at-home rapid tests as Americans traveled to see family amid the surge in cases from the more transmissible omicron variant. Now the administration is working to make COVID-19 home tests more accessible, both by increasing supply and...

    The study, published in the journal Nature and part-funded by the UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research, uncovers how palmitic acid alters the cancer genome, increasing the likelihood the cancer will spread. The researchers have started developing therapies that interrupt this process and say a clinical trial could start in the next couple of years. Metastasis – or the spread – of cancer remains the main cause of death in cancer patients and the vast majority of people with metastatic cancer can only be treated, but not cured. Fatty acids are the building blocks of fat in our body and the...
  • What's the healthiest cheese? The best options, according to experts

    11/07/2021 12:25:04 PM PST · by mylife · 94 replies
    Cheese -- what's not to love? Its popularity is indisputable. Americans consumed over 38 pounds of cheese per capita in 2020 alone, according to data from the US Department of Agriculture. Whether eating cheese is healthy -- that's a little less clear. High in protein, calcium, vitamins and essential amino acids, cheese is also a calorie-dense food, and can be high in fats and sodium. "If you enjoy cheese and you like it, it could be a good source of protein. It could be a good source of calcium. You just want to eat it where you're not overindulging too...

    CARIBOU, Maine (AP) — Maine’s annual moose hunt will start soon with more permits for hunters than the previous year. The hunt begins on Monday in limited parts of the state. The late September and early October moose hunt mostly takes place in far northern and eastern parts of Maine. The moose hunt ends briefly on Oct. 2. Other stretches of the hunt take places in mid-October, late October and November. The state approved almost 3,500 moose permits for this season, and that was an increase of 11% from the previous year. The moose hunt is starting as the bear...

    On June 21, 2021, a bull moose repeatedly charged an Idaho backpacker and his dog, who had set up camp at Harrison Lake, a pristine wilderness site, about a 4.6 mile hike from the trailhead.

    In this year alone, we’ve learned that trees are racist, as are fonts. Heck, even not being racist is racist! So, I guess the news that cheese is racist now shouldn’t come as a surprise. Environmentalists in Brighton and Hove in England are trying to get more plant-based school meals, citing not only the environmental impact of animal agriculture and fishing industries, as well the apparent racism of dairy products. “Animal agriculture and fishing industries are leading causes of deforestation, ocean dead zones, water pollution, biodiversity loss and species extinction,” reads the petition started by Alison Plaumer of Extinction Rebellion....

The San Antonio resident has unsubscribed from cable, stopped paying for some of her medications and cut down significantly on her air conditioning.

In honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day on January 20, we decided to make a list to celebrate its many uses. Here are our 32 favorite foods to put cheese on.
  • Environmental Activist Says Cheese is Racist, Dairy Shouldn’t Be Served in Schools

    Because some black people are lactose intolerant. An environmental activist is petitioning her local council to remove cheese and other dairy products from the school menu because she claims the food items are “racist.” Yes, really. Extinction rebellion member Alison Plaumer told local officials at a Brighton and Hove City Council meeting that dairy is racist because black people are more likely to be lactose intolerant. “Arguably, there is a racist element to serving dairy too much because 65 per cent of the world’s population are lactose intolerant, many from the BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) community,” said Plaumer....
