Penicillin changed everything. Infections that had previously killed were suddenly quickly curable. Yet as Maryn McKenna shares in this sobering talk, we've squandered the advantages afforded us by that and later antibiotics.

5 Delicious Recipes Guaranteed To Awaken Flagging Appetites.
My friend Sara* is worried about her mother. She’s been losing weight as she’s getting older. She has never been fat in her life, but in old age her slenderness is turning into too-skinny-ness. She has that bird-like fragility that we often notice (and worry about) in aging relatives. And the cause is not a mystery; it’s because she doesn’t eat enough.
Sara’s mother isn’t intentionally starving herself, and she hasn’t been affected by images of skinny models; she just has a poor appetite, something that affects many elderly men and women. When something looks or smells appetizing, she’ll eat it, but she doesn’t have the energy or the appetite to think of making something delicious for herself. [...]
It’s not only the elderly who need to be tempted to eat; friends and family who are recovering from illness, rehabilitating after surgery, grieving, depressed or stressed can also lose their appetites. Like Sara’s mother, they frequently they fall into unhealthy eating habits, grazing periodically on snacks with poor nutritional value. Delicious, healthy food is vital for both emotional and physical health, yet ironically the times when we most need it are when we are the least likely to get to eat it. So here are five healthy recipes which will stimulate the taste buds and tempt your loved ones to eat healthy, regular meals to bolster their emotional and physical health.
