    The zombie apocalypse is nigh! The zombie apocalypse is nigh! Well, no it isn’t. In fact, it’s probably as likely to occur as the rest of Paul Ehrlich’s predictions. Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist famous for his widely debunked book “The Population Bomb,” doubled down on his climate change and overpopulation fear-mongering with HuffPost Live on May 21. Ehrlich warned host Josh Zepps that the dangers of overpopulation are growing, blaming Republicans and the media for failing to take action. While hawking a new book called “Hope On Earth,” Ehrlich’s co-author Michael Tobias praised Ehrlich’s older, outrageously wrong predictions and...

    o you've been feeling virtuous quaffing red wine, nibbling on dark chocolate and popping grapes, thinking you're reaping the life-extending, disease-fighting, health-promoting benefits of resveratrol. You'll need to think again, suggests a new study, which finds that high levels of resveratrol consumed as part of a regular diet are not linked to lower levels of cancer, cardiovascular disease or inflammation, and do not appear to prolong life. The latest research on the promising polyphenol was conducted on the senior population of two villages in the Chianti region of Italy -- 783 men and women 65 and older whose health and...

    Did starving Neanderthals eat each other? 22:00 04 December 2006 NewScientist.com news service Rowan Hooper Neanderthals lived a desperately tough life, sometimes so close to starvation that when one of them died their compatriots would fall upon the body and devour it, according to new research. Scorned as clumsy, idiotic brutes with little in the way of developed culture, our pitiless modern view of Neanderthals may be tempered by new findings that provide insight into the terrible life our evolutionary cousins faced. Antonio Rosas, of the National Museum for Natural Sciences in Madrid, Spain, and colleagues studied 43,000-year-old Neanderthal remains...

    The killer who cooked his dinner guests flashes his teeth at the judge as eight-year jail term is increased to lifeTHE longest-running horror show in modern German legal history, the stomach-churning trial of Armin Meiwes, the Cannibal of Rotenburg, ended yesterday with a clear verdict: a life jail term for murdering a man in order to eat his organs. As the Frankfurt judges pronounced sentence, Meiwes swayed, nodded, briefly flashed his notorious teeth at the bench and then disappeared through a concealed door to begin a sentence that is expected to last about 15 years. Behind him he left grisly,...
