In case you’ve been following along, you probably already know how the past few Crisp News articles were all about the environment and how big industries are opting towards and building more sustainable ecosystems.
Today’s in this late Crisp News’ article we’ll be delving more into details on this topic; starting from how Jaden Smith is giving away healthy meals for the homeless, to how big brands are planting trees, and what could replace antibiotics.
Let’s dive right into it.
Jaden Smith Starts a Charity Vegan Business
Like father like son.
Earlier this year, Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith introduced a vegan food truck called “I Love You”. Today, “I Love You” offers free vegan meals for the homeless and anyone who is not able to afford such a healthy nutritious meal.
Jaden and his friend A$AP Rocky, who’s also his partner in this project have been already handing over 500 free meals. To make it better, Jaden also owns “JUST” which is a sustainable water brand from which he has already been donating over 10 thousand bottles in Harlem only.
Next, we have a new interesting study.
This New Study States That We Eat Unhealthily When We’re Sleepless
Explains so much, yet so little. Do you know that feeling when you’ve woken up and you haven’t slept so well; therefore, you feel like you want to have into cheesecake for breakfast? You’re not the only one.
A study suggests that when we’re sleep-deprived, we tend to reach for food that smells good. This is because of sleep-deprivation messes with our endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for regulating our physiological processes.
So we start craving something that smells sugary or oily foods as a result of not getting the full amount of sleep needed.
What we’re trying to say here is that the next time you catch yourself craving a “cheat meal” for your healthy lifestyle, rewind to check if you’re sleep-deprived.
In case you are, deviating to having a healthier snack such as nuts or seeds instead of jumping straight onto a cheesecake might result in better sleep the night after.
Bringing more awareness to such erroneous acts we tend to frequently commit; therefore, sabotaging our health, we may eventually get rid of your antibiotics sooner than we think.
Scientists Find CRISPR, a Conceivable Alternative to Antibiotics
Antibiotics are undoubtedly good for our gut health in many cases; however, they have many potential side effects which doctors have known for years.
Antibiotics work in an unselective manner as they kill the good and bad bacteria altogether. We need good bacteria for a healthy gut. The latter is the reason for which taking antibiotics may cause stomach pain, diarrhea and/or nausea when excessively consumed.
So, what is CRISPR and does all the above have to do with it.
CRISPR is a tool that can change the genetic code of bacteria; In other words, using this tool doctors can detect and sort out the good bacteria from bad ones to maintain the gut healthy and full of undamaged good bacteria.
This alternative, however, is not yet ready to be implemented in humans. We’ll update you once we have more news about it.
Remember to always consult your family doctor before consuming any antibiotics.
Finally, Cairo University Promises to Plant 1 Million Trees
Now that’s an even better reason to go to college.
Cairo University started an initiative called “Green Egypt” (“Green” here being a verb). This startup project aims to plant 1 million trees in 4 years.
What’s even more interesting about this initiative is that it is aiming to help the university students connect with nature, by planting the trees under the supervision of some professors from the Faculty of Agriculture.
It’s promising to see local projects looking being initiated for the environment.
On the rumors of the Cairo University “1 Million Trees” initiative, the telecommunication company Vodafone Egypt is starting an equivalent project of planting 1 million trees as well.
Now whenever anyone says that “Egypt doesn’t care about the environment”, we can confidently state this good piece of news.
This week’s article had celebrities and brands do their community work, as above mentioned. Go ahead and share this article with your friends to let them know what’s happening in Egypt and the world.
