Packaging that changes colour when food spoils

IMG_1647

A Brazilian company has partnered with universities in the U.S. and Brazil to create food packaging that will change color to alert you when it spoils. The package uses PH indicators to determine whether the food has spoiled. The first prototype of the technology was released last year–if successfully incorporated, it could help with problems of food waste and prevent consumers from navigating confusing labels. https://www.psfk.com/2017/05/packaging-changes-colors-to-alert-shoppers-when-food-spoils.html

A tattoo that monitors your health

IMG_1626

Researchers have developed a tattoo ink that could provide real-time updates on your body’s health. You would have the ink tattooed onto your body and the tattoo would then change color according to the amount of the activating agent present. A tattoo using the ink designed to respond to glucose levels, for example, would change color from blue to brown your blood sugar level rises. https://futurism.com/color-changing-tattoos-could-help-millions-monitor-their-health-in-real-time/

A new online course that combats binge drinking

IMG_1600

A new online course for schools called Climate Schools has been proven to halve the rate of kids binge drinking and delay drinking. My daughter did a project at school on binge drinking and found out that the way to help prevent it is to focus on negative reaction from peers rather than negative outcomes like headaches, or danger- a key reason I liked this approach. Binge drinking is a huge problem with kids today and needs a solution. More schools should subscribe to this course to help. www.Climateschools.com.au http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/four-personality-traits-that-predict-teen-drug-and-alcohol-problems-20170605-gwl4m1.html
