Best study spots on Guam outside of your home

Whether you are a high school student with schoolwork or a college student in summer classes, finding the ideal study spot can be hard. If you fish out 10 bucks for a caffeinated drink and a dessert, you want it all: comfy seats, soothing music and the right temperature. 

“I prefer to study outside because at home, I tend to sleep,” said Bernadette Llegado, 26. “At home, family members can disturb me, but when I’m outside, even though there’s noise, it’s not concerning me. If it’s loud, I have my earphones.”

Moroccan Study Identifies Nutri-Score As Most Effective Among Five Popular Food Labels

A team of Moroccan researchers said con­sumers could ben­e­fit from intro­duc­ing a front-of-pack label (FOPL) on the food items sold in super­mar­kets.

According to a newly pub­lished study that inves­ti­gated the effi­cacy of five FOPLs, Nutri-Score proved to be the best at help­ing local con­sumers make health­ier food choices.

Nutri-Score was ranked as the pre­ferred label by 65 per­cent of the par­tic­i­pants. The per­cent­age of par­tic­i­pants who improved their food choice (with Nutri-Score) was higher than those who wors­ened it.– Moroccan researchers,

Study claims immune system harmed by preservative used in popular processed food

A food preservative that is used to prolong the shelf life of Pop-Tarts, Rice Krispies Treats, Cheez-Its and almost 1,250 other popular processed foods might cause harm to the immune system, suggest the findings of a new peer-reviewed study by Environmental Working Group.

For the study, published this week in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, EWG researchers used data from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxicity Forecaster, or ToxCast, to assess the health hazards of the most common chemicals added to food, as well as the “forever chemicals” known as PFAS, which can migrate to food from

Food preservative used in popular foods may harm immune system, says new study

A food preservative used to prolong the shelf life of Pop-Tarts, Rice Krispies Treats, Cheez-Its and almost 1,250 other popular processed foods may harm the immune system, a new study suggests.

The findings showed that the preservative tert-butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ, has been found to harm the immune system both in both animal tests and in non-animal tests known as high-throughput in vitro toxicology testing.

TBHQ is a preservative that is pervasive in processed foods. It has been used in foods for many decades and serves no function besides increasing a product’s shelf life.

Using new non-animal test results, the
