  • The latest research shows that the foods we choose to eat—or not to eat—may increase our life span or the quality of our lives. Not a day goes by, it seems, without feature news stories about food and its impact on health. The message that we can reduce our chances of developing cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases by maintaining a healthy weight, decreasing the fat and calories in our diets, eating more vitamin- and mineral-rich fruits and vegetables, and getting fit is becoming a familiar one.

  • This paper measures the role of quality-adjusted years of schooling in accounting for cross-country output per worker differences. While data on years of schooling are readily available, data on education quality are not. I use the returns to schooling of foreign-educated immigrants in the United States to infer the education quality of their birth country. Immigrants from developed countries earn higher returns than do immigrants from developing countries; I provide evidence that this pattern is likely explained by education quality differences and not selection.

  • Edible oils are mainly vegetable oils which have been subjected to several processes to removed undesirable constituents. In order to make them suitable for human consumption, most edible oils are subjected to refining processes, such as neutralization, bleaching and deodorization. Among edible oils, only virgin olive oil (a natural juice obtained by olive pressing), can be consumed without refining. Edible oils are characterized by a wide range of physical and chemical prop-erties, since their composition depend on the type of oil (Rossell1991).

  • In many small and shallow aquifers the hydrochemistry does not evolve further. However, the baseline natural quality of groundwater may vary spatially within the same aquifer if the mineral assemblages vary, and also evolves with time as the water moves along groundwater flow lines. If an aquifer dips below a confining layer (Figure 2.5), a sequence of hydrochemical processes occurs with progressive distance down gradient away from the outcrop, including precipitation of some solids when relevant ion concentrations reach saturation levels for a solid mineral phase.

  • Approximately18% of the global cattle population is from SAP. Out of this, the largest share is from India, which has about 10% of the world’s population by itself.

The respective agriculture policies of the countries show a serious commitment of governments to improve the general economy through the livestock sector, with particular support to smallholders.

  • Attempts to meet GHGE targets from the food chain must not be made in isolation because any dietary recommendations to reduce GHGEs must also meet dietary requirements for the health of the population. The most recent population-based energy and nutrient requirements were published in 1991 by the Department of Health (DoH 1991), with subsequent recommendations for specific food items such as fruit and vegetables, red and processed meat, and fish set by other organisations such as the Food Standards Agency and the World Cancer Research Fund (FSA 2007, WCRF 2007).

  • We believe that our inquiry into the effects of outdoor artificial light is timely. During the course of the study, we learned that 2.32 million of the United Kingdom’s stock of 7.4 million road lights are scheduled to be replaced in the next two years because they are already well past their design life (over 30 years old). 7 This presents a real opportunity to ensure that replacements avoid some of the adverse effects of the current stock. The old lighting stock is predominantly low-pressure sodium vapour lighting which is monochromatic yellow/orange in colour.
