Shifting to a Vegan or Keto Diet Rapidly Impacts Your Immune System

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health observed rapid and distinct immune system changes in a small study of people who switched to a vegan or a ketogenic (also called keto) diet.

Rising Sea Levels Could Mean More Methane Emitted From Wetlands

As sea levels rise due to global warming, ecosystems are being altered. Scientists believed that the tidal wetlands found in estuaries might produce less methane. However, researchers indicate that these assumptions aren’t always true.
