2.5 Sodium (Na), chlorine (Cl) and potassium (K)

The element sodium is a soft silvery metal and the element chlorine is a greenish gas that is poisonous to humans and many other animals. Yet when these two elements are combined together in a compound called sodium chloride, the properties are quite different. Sodium chloride in its solid form is composed of white crystals and we call it salt. When salt dissolves in water, the constituent sodium ions, Na +, and chloride ions, Cl , become separated. Both of these ions

2.4 Obesity and brain reward systems

Very palatable foods, especially those high in fat and carbohydrate may be potent stimuli for neural pathways in the brain. Direct evidence for this idea has been found in recent studies of non-human animals. For example, it is known that many types of both natural (i.e. food, sex) and drug (e.g. cocaine or amphetamine, opiates, nicotine) rewards are able to stimulate activity within a brain pathway that innervates the ventral striatum at the base of the forebrain (Figure 8). The nerve cells

A strategy for ridding the world of VAD?

In July 2000, Time magazine announced that a potential solution to VAD had been found - 'Golden Rice' (Figure 8). This was a variety of rice that had been genetically modified to introduce β-carotene into the endosperm (part of the grain of the rice). The name arises from the fact that the otherwise white grains of rice are given a golden colour by the presence of carotenoid compounds.

The announcement came at the height of the global controversy over genetically modified crops.

The Meritocracy Trap [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Daniel Markovits | Merit is not a genuine excellence but rather a pretence, constructed to rationalise an offensive distribution of advantage. Merit, in short, is a sham. The meritocratic ideal—that social and economic rewards should track achievement rather than breeding—anchors the self-image of the age. Aristocracy has had its day, and meritocracy is now a basic tenet of civil religion in all advanced societies. Meritocracy promises to promote equality and opportunit
