A controversial weed killer, glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide.
Also known by its main brand name: Roundup, produced by Monsanto. Some evidence links it with cancer - although the jury is still out on that. DW's coverage on glyphosate is collated below.
What can we learn from a bunch of rhesus macaques playing video games and 'choking' under the pressure? Also, it may be better for all of us if you don't get a 3rd jab any time soon, and a deep dive into the experiment that potty-trained cows.
A study out of Berlin that examined hundreds of thousands of nasal cells claims to have the definitive answer on why kids are better at killing COVID. Also, if you work in a toxic environment, you should really do something about it. Research out of Australia tells us why.
What's the deal with the (very rare) cases of heart inflammation after COVID-19 vaccines? And with so many people concerned about long-term side effects... is there any evidence to actually support that position? Finally, some new research on a group of people who quietly lost a big part of themselves during the pandemic: adolescents.
Is it fair to say you've been outraged by some of the risky things you've seen people doing during this pandemic? And is it also fair to say that maybe (just maybe) your assessment of how risky those things were.... was very, very biased? Also, why are so many of us so anxious about life going back to normal?
If you don't vaccinate, you will get COVID-19 at some point. That's a fact. There's also the social argument. But a lot of people in the world remain against immunization. How do we deal with these people - especially if they are close to us? Also, would you like to live a longer, more healthy life?
If your genes make you a "night owl," the odds are higher you'll develop depression. Can we do anything to change that? Also, why is the EU planning to store our vaccination information inside a QR code, of all places? And, finally, a big shout-out to the listener who won our bird quiz!
Have an ear for birdsong? Neither do we. But with a couple clues (and a digital tool), we think you can solve our bird quiz. Also, some new fertility data shows some pretty wild differences between countries, and three big updates on major COVID-19 vaccines.
On this week's show, Spain grapples with the environmental impact of the renewable energy boom. Young entrepreneurs in Kenya discover how a tiny critter can make a big impact on food waste. And Mexico takes the lead in kicking the herbicide glyphosate to the curb for the sake of its native bees.
The more people who vaccinate, the quicker life goes back to normal. But is there a (proven) way to convince the "on the fence" crowd to go get jabbed? Also, once life does get back to normal, how do I get back to normal — and maybe even start growing again?
