Have Your Health and Eat Meat Too: Making a Mediterranean Diet Work Down Under

University of South Australia

Barbecued, stir-fried or roasted, there’s no doubt that Aussies love their meat. Consuming on average nearly 100 kilograms of meat per person per year, Australians are among the top meat consumers worldwide. But with statistics showing that most Australians suffer from a poor diet, and red meat production adding to greenhouse-gas emissions, finding a balance between taste preferences, environmental protection, and health benefits is becoming critical.

Machine learning can help us understand conversations about death

University of Vermont

Researchers at the University of Vermont have used machine learning and natural language processing to better understand end-of-life conversations. Borrowing techniques used to study fiction, where algorithms analyze manuscripts to identify story types, the researchers identified several common elements in these conversations. That knowledge could eventually help healthcare practitioners understand what makes a “good” conversation about palliative care.
