Burnout as the result of workplace stress has big implications for employers. Occupational health and safety standards require employers to protect both the physical and mental health of workers.
The science behind trying to build the perfect plant-based meat is full of trial and error and a multidisciplinary team.
Appearance, texture and flavour are the three main challenges food scientists face when developing a convincing plant-based meat.
The unique properties of clays make them suitable for a wide variety of applications.
Throughout human history, clay has played a role in many different industries. Its unique properties make it suited for a wide applications in widely ranging industries.
The United Nation Environment Program is leading the Global Peatlands Initiative to save peatlands and help keep climate change in check.
Peatlands store more soil carbon than any other terrestrial ecosystem, including tropical forests. But they have been heavily exploited and damaged. Now, scientists are working to restore them.
Des légumes, des fruits, des céréales complètes, des noix, des graines et des légumineuses constituent des aliments excellents pour la santé. Mais certains produits dérivés des plantes, qui remplacent la viande, ne sont pas tous sains.
Les régimes alimentaires à base de plantes peuvent être sains, mais attention aux ingrédients. Les substituts de viande fortement transformés peuvent être riches en graisses saturées et en sodium.
Plant-based alternative foods have grown in popularity, but it’s important to read the labels to know if they’re healthy.
Plant-based diets can be healthy but ingredients matter. Heavily processed meat substitutes can be high in saturated fats and sodium.
Oilsands tailings are a mixture of water, suspended sand, clay and residual bitumen.
A new nature-based approach to managing oilsands tailings shows promise in the lab and may soon be tested in the field.
