  • Guinness to Change Up Its Brewing Process

    Starting in 2016, Guinness will be fully vegan friendly for the first time since they began making beer 256 years ago. Guinness, like many other brewers, use isinglass, a by-product of the fishing industry that is used to make yeast settle faster. While it seems gross, this process is actually not uncommon at all for beer and wine makers. Unfortunately, traces of fish still ended up in the final product, so Guinness drinkers were unknowingly ingesting small amounts of isinglass.

  • Bottled Water Brands Sold At Whole Foods And CVS Found To Contain Potentially Dangerous Chemicals

    Some consider bottled water the safest choice for avoiding drinking-water contaminants like arsenic and lead. However, recent investigations have found that not all bottled water brands are free of potentially toxic chemicals. In June, researchers found "high levels" of arsenic in bottled water brands owned by Whole Foods and Keurig Dr. Pepper. Those findings confirmed earlier research which found levels of arsenic that exceeded the allowable limit set by the FDA. Now, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is warning about the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The chemicals have been discovered in bottled water sold at Whole Foods and CVS locations in the state. Business Insider reports that PFAS are associated with serious health conditions like cancer, as well as liver damage and developmental issues. Since PFAS rarely break down in the environment, experts say consuming or inhaling them means they could stay in your body for life. Massachusetts officials have told pregnant women not to drink the bottled water 'out of an abundance of caution'. On July 2, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health released an advisory about bottled water sourced from Spring Hill Farm Dairy. The products in question included 365 Spring Water (sold at Whole Foods) and Ice Canyon Spring Water (sold at CVS).

  • Huge Amount Of Methane Found On Mars

    The strange puzzle of methane on Mars continues. Previously, NASA’s Curiosity rover found something odd: It detected fluctuating levels of methane in the Martian atmosphere, even though an orbiting satellite, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Trace Gas Orbiter, found no evidence of methane using its highly sensitive detection levels. It is theorized that life could exist beneath the Martian surface which is producing the gas, which then escapes up to the surface in plumes.
