Es gibt eine 100% biologisch abbaubare Alternative zu Plastiksäcken: Säcke aus Maniok. Diese lassen sich einfach in Wasser auflösen, das man dann sogar trinken kann. Damit wäre das Problem der Plastikverschmutzung gutenteils gelöst, denn alles Plastik was bisher produziert worden ist, existiert noch in der einen oder anderen Form. Die Säcke wurden 2017 in Bali gegen die Plastikverschmutzung erfunden.

Recent science shows that you can grow new brain cells by a healthy living regardless of your age. Walking for 45 minutes every day, eating omega-3 fatty acids (linseed oil, walnuts: also helps against cardiac and circulatory troubles), eating turmeric and blueberries and drinking green tea (good against cancer), caloric restriction (slows down aging as well) and/or intermittent fasting are beneficial.

Neueste Forschungsergebnisse zeigen, daß neue Gehirnzellen auch noch bei Erwachsenen nachwachsen können, was man durch einen gesunden Lebenswandel noch verstärken kann. Jeden Tag 45 Minuten spazieren gehen, das Essen von Nahrung reich an Omega-3 Fettsäuren (Leinöl, Walnüsse: wirken auch gegen Herz- Kreislauferkrankungen), das Essen von Gelbwurz und Schwarzbeeren (Heidelbeeren) sowie das Trinken von grünem Tee (beugt Krebs vor), fasten und Kalorienreduktion (bremst auch die Alterung) wirken sich positiv aus.



Europe, tax the top 1%

Tax the rich, not the poor! Thousands of people in yellow vests have been protesting for weeks on the streets to demand just that - not only in France, but also in Belgium, Greece, the Netherlands and the UK [1].

Here’s the plan: world-renowned economist Thomas Piketty, author of the book ‘Capital in the 21st Century’, and a group of social scientists have put together a manifesto with concrete, bold proposals to tax the richest companies and individuals in Europe. If we could persuade just two European governments to sign up to it, that would kickstart a radical transformation!

f.i. Apple only pays 0.005% of tax and also Amazon less than 1% while hard working people have to bear the brunt of taxation. The movement wants to establish a new European Assembly not being blocked by fiscal unanimity and being composed of members of national parliaments and of the European parliament. All of it would be possible without changing European treaties.
