Even the poorest people can afford food, what were once booms and busts of famine and plenty have now leveled off, poverty declines are ahead of U.N. goals, and even centralized energy in developing countries, which could help a billion people, is attainable if western states stop telling poor nations they can only get World Bank help if it's not coal, natural gas, or nuclear.
And we can prevent cancer for the first time.
Randy Constant, The Farmer Behind The Largest Known Organic Fraud in U.S. History, Has Committed Suicide
Though the stereotype of Australian men is the tough, beer-drinking Alpha - they popularized running face-first while rappelling down cliffs among armies across the world - but they must live pretty health lives because they lead the world in longevity.
Australian men, on average, live to 74.1. And women are doing well also. Only Switzerland surpasses the land down under for females.
Lagged Cohort Life Expectancy
However, we do have relatively thick enamel on our teeth, which can get ruined over time without proper care.
Crocodiles don't even have that. They have thin tooth enamel, the opposite of humans and other hard-biting species, as their plant-eating ancestors did. But unlike humans, when their teeth go bad, they seem to just grow new ones.

Fake versions of foods are all the rage but egg farmers who survived the Vegg ("nutritional yeast flakes, Sodium alginate, Kala Namak, beta-carotene") can't rest easy just yet. Joining any number of eggless egg substitute concoctions, Just Egg is rolling out in 2,100 Kroger stores nationwide.
Unlike most others, which are just used as a leavening agent or a binder so egg is substituted by xantham gum or tofu or some other chemical and isn't really for cooking, three tablespoons of Just Egg is touted to be just like a regular egg and can be used for an omelet or scramble.
So if you don't want to eat liquid chicken, you can eat whatever this is instead.
Happy Family Organics Lobbyists Get A Win - More Organic Food For Poor People On WIC, At The Same High Cost
The company also claims it is making packaging commitments that "support a more circular economy" but the beginning of that circle need to be the price poor people pay, not fuzzy-wuzzy marketing claims about whatever "sustainability" is pretending to be this week.
About 100 people actually did walk up the volcano, with the kids (naturally) featured prominently.
Every Year There Are Amazon Wildfires - NOT An All Time Record - More In 2016 And Far More 2005 - Doesn't Derail Paris Agreement
Short summary: we have had wild fires for many years now in the Amazon, even in the tropical rainforest - mainly started by humans for forest clearing and ranching. It is not enough to impact significantly on the Paris agreement pledges yet though it is important in the long term if this continues for decades.
The ranchers use fire for forest clearing, "slash and burn agriculture" as it is called. That is because it is much easier to convert forest into grassland by burning it than to do it by felling the trees. Once it is cut, the way they manage the pastures is to reburn them every few years to clear out the brush and to get the grass to resprout.
In a new study, genetic, isotopic and skeletal analysis of three human skeletons dating to 415-560 AD excavated from the Hermanov vinograd archaeological site in Osijek Croatia revealed that all were males between 12 and 16 years of age at death and that they all suffered from malnutrition.
They are not obviously of different social status, but genetic analysis found that the two with cranial modifications exhibited very distinct ancestries, one from the Near East and the other from East Asia.
Mexico is not the only place where this is a problem. People trying to avoid immigration laws face peril around the world, no matter what country they visit but America provides the largest undefended borders in the world so the problem is just more easily seen here.
Like that trace levels of air pollution cause psychiatric disorders.
Game reviewers at the time were as perplexed by that but to the science community the rationale made perfect sense. Environmental groups that want to cull humanity want the culling to be among regard as less fit, even if they don't admit it. By using dollar bills they would be targeting people who don't have credit cards. The poor, not organic food shoppers that listen to NPR. So this modern form of eugenicists and social Darwinists could eliminate non-elites and slap consumerism.
Meanwhile, governments that want more taxes but don't want to risk a vote can simply put a tax on certain foods.
That may be a statistical blip exploited by opponents the same way agenda-driven epidemiologists create rows of diseases and columns of foods and chemicals to create the appearance of a harmful link, it may be that patients suffered quietly because they couldn't afford it.
Having never watched any of them milk an almond or a soybean or a kernel of rice, I can't say how close their process is to actual milking but I am skeptical. However, dairy farming also has its own problems with honesty, as a lawsuit against Tillamook hopes to show. An Animal Legal Defense Fund lawsuit in Oregon says they are being deceptive, perhaps like the plant juice trade groups and companies they represent.
The attorney did not cite what evidence that was, but lawyers don't need evidence. They will pay activists like Texas A&M Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences Professor Ivan Rusyn to testify that mouse studies and statistical correlation are enough.
Nothing To Fear From Asteroids Didymos Or Apophis - Despite Elon Musk's Tweet & How Billionaire Could Help Retire Asteroid Risk
Another load of sensationalist nonsense from the Daily Express scaring people, and then a tweet from Elon Musk replying to another Daily Express article so promoting it to his many followers, and then Daily Express does his retweet of their article as headline news.
I’ve had many PM’s today asking if Didymos or Apophis are a threat to Earth. No, neither of them are, it’s NONSENSE!
If you click through, and read to the end, the Daily Express even quote ESA saying this:
Luckily, Didymos is not an Earth-crossing asteroid, and there is no possibility that the deflection experiment could create an impact hazard.
It's also home to the skeletal remains of several hundred individuals of unknown origin and that led to a lot of speculation about how it came to be. Were they part of a massacre or sacrifice? A cataclysmic event?
No, people just threw bodies in the lake throughout history, according to analysis of 38 skeletons found there. One group of 23 individuals have ancestry that falls within the range of variation of present-day South Asians, while 14 have ancestry typical of the eastern Mediterranean and one individual with Southeast Asian-related ancestry.
