On September 30, two biohackers received 2 million dollars to develop the world’s first man-made cow’s milk.
By modifying sunflower oil to mimic milk fats and culturing yeast to release casein, Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi are hoping to create a plant-based milk that is nearly identical to dairy.
Their startup, aptly named Muufri (sounds like moo-free), aims to tap into the 140 billion-dollar dairy industry and have animal-free milk on the shelves before 2017.
“We’re basically using biotechnology to make milk without pasteurization and without the risk of contaminants like pesticides, hormones or bacteria that can spoil the milk quickly,” Pandya says. “It’s quite similar to the process to make medicine and insulin, so it will be super sterile.”
Additionally, Muufri milk will have virtually no carbon footprint compared to milk taken from cows. Not only can it take up to 2,000 gallons of fresh water to produce one…

Don’t automatically assume that a food with “low fat” on its label is better for you or will help you lose weight. Many low-fat, reduced fat, and fat-free foods give you more than you bargained for: A recent UK study found that 10% of diet foods contain the same or more calories than the regular stuff, and that 40% had more sugar. Why? When companies remove fat, they have to use more sugar, salt, and additives to make the food taste better. Plus, research shows that a “low-fat” nutrition label leads all consumers, especially those who are overweight, to overeat.
That’s not such a good trade off. Rather than take the label’s word for it, digging a little deeper can help you make a healthier (and yes, slimmer) choice. Here’s the scoop on 9 low-fat foods that aren’t so good for you.

It seems as soon as the weather turns cooler, the pumpkins come out. Once you see the orange pumpkins, large and small, in the grocery store and farmers’ markets, we know autumn has truly arrived. Pumpkins may make us think of Halloween and Jack o’ lanterns, but they aren’t just for decorating. In fact, carving pumpkins are different from cooking pumpkins.
Smaller pumpkins are better for cooking because they have a smooth texture, dense flesh and are sweet. They usually weigh between 4 and 8 pounds. When choosing a pumpkin, make sure there aren’t any bruises or soft spots since that might mean the pumpkin has begun to rot. Choose a pumpkin that has no cuts in the shell and be sure to check the bottom since it has probably been sitting on the damp ground. One last thing: the stem is not a handle. Lift a pumpkin from the…
