Proponents of juicing say it’s a great way to stuff more vitamins and phytonutrients into your diet. Fruit juice has also been criticised as a sugary, fibre-free drink no better for you than cola. What’s the truth? A new study shows that orange juice does make certain nutrients more accessible to your body, but not enough to recommend juice over whole fruit.
Do you eat only when you’re actually hungry? Many of us eat even when our bodies don’t need food. Just the thought of food entices us to eat. We think about food when we see other people eating, when we pass a favorite fast-food restaurant, when we see a scrumptious snack near the check-out at a convenience store.

Cow, sheep, or goat? Coconut? Rice, oat or quinoa?
One of the bigger challenges in online security is finding a way to effectively share data and be sure it isn’t intercepted. Research led by the Centre for Quantum Dynamics at Griffith University has identified a mechanism for doing this effectively via quantum computing, using a technique known as “quantum steering”.
