Why Does Coffee Make Us Poop? Hint: It Probably Has Nothing To Do With Caffeine

We all know that third-cup-of-coffee feeling on a Monday morning. Just when you’re right in the groove of work and – oh, brb. As any avid coffee drinker knows, the world’s most popular beverage has a tendency to make us poop. But why remains somewhat of a mystery. According to a new study presented at Digestive Disease Week, it has less to do with caffeine content and more about the effects of coffee itself. Coffee’s ability to help us with a bowel movement may come from its relationship with gut microbiota and its ability to influence smooth muscle contractility, two things that help us poop on the regular. At least, that’s the case in rats. “When rats were treated with …

Plants Used To Treat Civil War Soldiers Work Against Drug-Resistant Bacteria

Contrary to what you might think, microbes – not guns – were the biggest killers of soldiers during the American Civil War (1861-1865). For every three men killed in the field, five died from disease, often the result of an infected wound. So, naturally, when Union forces instigated a blockade stripping the south of crucial medication (e.g. quinine, morphine, and chloroform), things were looking bleak for the Confederate side. In response to the blockade, a botanist called Francis Porcher was asked to find and catalog flora native to the southeastern states that could be used as alternative medicines. Now, for the first time, researchers are looking into the antiseptic properties of three of the medicines he listed in the Civil War plant …

When The Far Right Took Over Brazil, Its Only LGBTQ Congressman Fled For His Life

For Jean Wyllys, peace comes only at night, in the darkness, when he can close his eyes and drift into a world he has left behind. Perhaps he’ll dream of Bahia, the northeastern Brazilian state where he was born and raised. Or of Rio de Janeiro, the ”that he adopted as his own. Some nights, he’ll think of his mother or his friends; others, of his months-old nephew he can’t wait to help raise. Maybe his mind will wander to Brasília, and the Brazilian Congress, where he made history as one of his country’s first openly gay federal legislators and became a fierce advocate for the people who grew up like him: gay in a country still struggling to accept …

80k People Live In This Closed City Which Was Kept Secret For 49 Years And Is The Most Contaminated Place On Earth

Apart from the Chernobyl disaster, we rarely hear about nuclear accidents in the former USSR. However, there were plenty of them but they were all kept a secret from the general public. One particular installation – City-40 – was the first Soviet plutonium production complex and the site of three massive nuclear incidents. Up until the ’90s, City-40 was not placed on the map, there were no road signs to lead one there, and its inhabitants officially did not exist. However, despite the complete isolation, to this day its residents are not keen on leaving the closed-off haven – the majority are not even considering the possibility. Such is the strange paradox of closed cities – a phenomenon which was …
