Who you are influences what you eat more than food shopping environment, study finds
Much attention and effort has focused on providing healthy food outlets in areas considered 'food deserts' in order to improve a neighborhood's diet. But a new study finds that who a person is may matter more than where they shop in predicting their consumption of unhealthy food. (2017-04-25)

Parents' use of emotional feeding increases emotional eating in school-age children
Emotional eating is not uncommon in children and adolescents, but why youth eat emotionally has been unclear. Now a new longitudinal study from Norway has found that school-age children whose parents fed them more to soothe their negative feelings were more likely to eat emotionally later on. The reverse was also found to be the case, with parents of children who were more easily soothed by food being more likely to feed them for emotional reasons. (2017-04-25)

Frozen fruits and vegetables help Americans achieve nutrition goals
New research presented today via poster presentation at the 2017 Experimental Biology meeting shows consumers who eat frozen fruits and vegetables eat more fruits and vegetables overall.

Mapping food color regulations in the EU and the US
New study suggests that EU and the US companies and consumers have much to gain from closer cooperation on food coloring. Today, food colors are probably the most strictly regulated food ingredients all over the world. However, the rules are not the same everywhere, which could be considered as a barrier to trade as failure to comply with these rules may give rise to claims of adulteration, misbranding or non-compliance and products may be rejected at the border or recalled from the market. (2017-04-12)

Researchers at SSA discuss performance of earthquake early warning systems

There's a cost to 'bee-ing' too smart, U of G professor finds
A U of G researcher has discovered that smart bumblebees die sooner and don't collect as much food over their life spans as their less intelligent co-workers. Prof. Nigel Raine suggests that the energy demands of intelligence eat up limited resources, leaving smart bees with less energy for foraging than their slower-learning counterparts. This is the first evidence of a learning-associated cost in the wild and could have implications for a variety of species. (2017-04-04)

New global report on food crisis -- benchmark for action needed to avoid future disasters
Despite international efforts to address food insecurity, around 108 million people in the world were severely food insecure in 2016, a dramatic increase compared with 80 million in 2015, according to a new global report on food crises released in Brussels on March 31, 2017. (2017-03-31)
