Quotes

"The details [of how this ecosystem operates] will be an important story to follow in the future" said Alison Murray , an expert in extremophiles at the Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nevada, who wasn't involved in this research
"The latest WISSARD announcement is the first to provide definitive evidence that a functional microbial ecosystem exists beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, confirming more than a decade of speculation about life in this environment" said an NSF statement
"We've learned that not all of the particles in the air at high altitudes have the same influence on clouds. We're starting to think that these differences contribute to how rain gets distributed" says Kim Prather, Ph D
The Paleo diet "is a nutrient-dense diet (providing balanced and complete nutrition) that is anti-inflammatory, supports gut health, and naturally regulates important hormones (like insulin, leptin and ghrelin). Most people naturally consume fewer calories (while it’s not as simple as calories-in-calories-out, energy intake does matter) while also providing their bodies with far more valuable nutrition" said Sarah
