PSII Photosystem Protection by Soil Amendment with Biochar and Adequate Nitrogen Fertilizer Availability Attenuate Cadmium Induced-Photoinhibition and Phytotoxicity in Solanum Lycopersicon

The aim of this research was to assess the biochar ability to protect the photosynthesis process face to Cd contamination, especially, when nitrogen fertilizer was added at adequate amount. Culture of tomato seedlings was conducted on pots containing soil added with different portion of biochar (0, 3.5 and 7%) and nitrogen (3 or 6g NH4NO3). Irrigation was done by water (control condition) or Cd solution (150µM). Data showed that regardless presence of Cd, synchronously addition of high nitrogen fertilizer (6g) and biochar (7%) in the culture medium resulted in fresh matter production, photosynthetic pigment (Chlorophyll a) and mineral elements content enhancement. Similar observation was shown concerning the mineral nutrition (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium contents).

Effects of Planting Dates on Nutritional and Phytochemical Compositions of Onion Varieties Under Rain-fed and Irrigation Facilities in Ogbomoso, Nigeria

Onion is a high-value vegetable consumed in Nigeria on a daily basis, and it forms an integral part of the diet, but the nutritional quality is low due to lack of appropriate cultural practices. The study examined the effects of planting dates on the nutritional quality of onion varieties in Ogbomoso, Nigeria. Five onion varieties (Local white, a local red, karibou, gandiol+, and safari) were subjected into four different planting dates namely, two under rain-fed (early April and August) and two under irrigation (early September and November).

Nutritional Status of Under-5 Children of Forcibly Migrated People Living in Ukhia, Cox Bazar, Bangladesh

In today’s print and electronic media, terms like ‘forced migration’ and ‘refugee’ are some of the most frequently used words. Globally there have been an outrageously large number of forced migrations, rendering hundreds of thousands of people homeless and stateless. Starting with the Syrian war in 2011 to the latest round of military atrocity in Myanmar in August 2017, millions of people have sought refuge in neighboring countries. The Rohingya is a group of refugees from Myanmar who have been residing in Bangladesh since the 1970s. At present, there is no published information on health and nutritional status of refugee children in Bangladesh. This study was conducted to assess nutritional status of the Rohingya children aged 6 months to 5 years old (n=114). Children were measured for weight and height while their guardians were interviewed. About 86% of the Rohingya children were underweight, 64.9% stunted, 82.1% thin and 1.8% at risk of overweight. Severe acute malnutrition (MUAC<11.5 cm) children was 68.5%. As refugees have limited access to health care services, they are at greater risk of health and nutritional problems. This study sheds light on the refugee under-5 children situation through a nutrition lens.

Are Insects a Good Alternative in Human Food?. Nutritional Value

Entomophagy refers to the dietary intake of insects and supplements practiced by millions of people worldwide. It has always been present in the eating behaviours of regions in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Entomophagy is on the rise both in the feeding of humans and in animal feed. Insects are powerful bio converters that can transform the low quality biomass of nature into proteins of high nutritional value. The recent introduction of the consumption of insects in new types of restaurants and supermarket chains in Western cultures has led us to conduct a review of the subject to see if the myths our Western conceptions can be overcome.

Nutritional Quality of Inventory at a Milwaukee Food Pantry

Little information exists about the nutritional quality of foods distributed at pantries. Therefore, studies are needed to assess the quality of foods offered by pantries to those lacking consistent access to adequate food. To evaluate the quality of inventory at Food Pantry, Milwaukee as it compares to nutrient recommendations outlined in the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010. We performed a cross-sectional analysis of the pantry’s February 2015 inventory. A computer algorithm was developed to measure the nutrient density of individual items based on percent daily values per 2000 calorie diet for calcium, fiber, protein, sodium, trans fat, and saturated fat; and added sugar composition.
