#Plastik im Blut!

95 von 100 Österreichern haben Kunststoffrückstände in ihrem Blut. In aktuellen Studien wurden Spuren von Weichmachern und Flammschutzmitteln im menschlichen Organismus nachgewiesen. Die Stoffe dürften über die Atemwege oder die Nahrungskette in den menschlichen Körper gelangen. Noch ist über die Auswirkungen auf den Organismus wenig bekannt. Sicher ist, dass der Stoff Bisphenol-A auf das Hormonsystem wirkt und in Tierversuchen zu Leberschädigungen oder Fettleibigkeit geführt hat. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Ländern ist ein Verbot solcher Substanzen in Österreich noch nicht angedacht. Newton berichtet über mögliche Auswirkungen von Plastik auf unseren Organismus.


LEGO: Everything is NOT awesome.

Plastic is nearly inescapable in the world of children’s toys—especially if your child is into LEGOs. But the company behind the eponymous toy bricks says it wants to change that. The LEGO Group has announced plans to build a new center to research and develop “sustainable, raw materials” to use in making its LEGO bricks.

Plastic Planet

plastik-filmPlastik ist billig und praktisch. Wir sind Kinder des Plastikzeitalters. Kunststoffe können bis zu 500 Jahre in Böden und Gewässern überdauern und mit ihren unbekannten Zusatzstoffen unser Hormonsystem schädigen. Wussten Sie, dass Sie Plastik im Blut Mehr »haben? Regisseur Werner Boote zeigt in seinem investigativen Kinodokumentarfilm, dass Plastik zu einer globalen Bedrohung geworden ist. Er stellt Fragen, die uns alle angehen: Warum ändern wir unser Konsumverhalten nicht? Warum reagiert die Industrie nicht auf die Gefahren? Wer ist verantwortlich für die Müllberge in Wüsten und Meeren? Wer gewinnt dabei? Und wer verliert?

Why We Breathe – A #Yoga Documentary

Shot over the space of 6 months across the US, in a variety of situations and lucky encounters. “Why We Breathe” was born out of the idea to understand why people do the things they do. For the documentary, we wanted to ask the question, why do you do yoga? Why keep doing it? Why do you love it? We wanted to ask experienced yogis these questions, and gain an insight into the possibilities that yoga can offer. This is the first time that these insights have been brought together in one place, to truly give us all a behind the mind look at people’s motivations for practicing yoga. We also get a amazing insight into how yoga can help change peoples negative experiences in life, and make significant differences in the populations quality of life. For more information on the documentary, plus additional video content, go to

Crazy maps of bacteria and chemicals all over the human body!

grippe-vorbeugen-infografikCrazy maps reveal colonies of bacteria and chemicals all over the human body

Our largest and most exposed organ — our skin — is covered in and composed of not just human skin cells but also about a trillion bacteria (and even more viruses) along with molecules from chemicals we come into contact with every day.

Researchers just mapped the “chemical topography” of human skin in order to figure out what exactly is living and settling on there and how those skin cells, bacteria, and chemicals interact. We have different types of bacterial communities all over and inside our bodies, and while scientists have previously created maps of the skin microbiome, this was the first map to look at what these bacteria are doing and how they interact with the chemicals we’re exposed to in day-to-day life.

To create these maps, researchers asked a man and a woman (person 1 and person 2, respectively) to skip bathing, shampooing, moisturizing, and using almost all cosmetics for three days (the woman did use deodorant during that time). After three days, they took samples from 400 individual spots on each person’s body so they could run two different types of analyses to see what they found.


The image takes a look at the bacterial diversity and general chemical diversity on the skin of both subjects — the red spots have the highest concentrations of different bacterial species or chemicals, the blue the lowest.

It’s important to note that these maps are only representative of two people — there is likely a huge variety of bacterial and chemical diversity among humans. Part of the goal here was to show that these 3D topographical maps could be created, which they did successfully, but they also found all kinds of other interesting things. One intriguing finding? The cosmetic products that touch our skin, like soap and shampoo, seem to leave chemical residue that stays on skin for days, weeks, or longer.

Let the sunshine in!

Soldier 1:
We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
