More than a taste test: just how hygienic is Mumbai's street food? 26.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Vendors cook it without wearing gloves, handle money with the same hands and leave it lying out in the open. So what happens when you send pav-bhaji to the laboratory for testing? No matter the time of night or day, somewhere on the streets of Mumbai there is a plate of deep-fried, mashed-potato patties called vada-pav being served with green chutney; or a bowl of pav-bhaji, a spicy mixture of mashed tomatoes and vegetables garnished with a blob of butter, onion and a dash of lemon. I myself am partial to the mixture of tangy, savoury puffed rice called bhel-puri – it’s just so tastefully mouthwatering that we often ignore questions like what conditions it’s cooked in, the hygiene of the food preparer or whether they’re wearing gloves. And indeed street food sellers in Mumbai usually do not wear gloves while preparing a dish, and exchange money with the same hand.

The best Christmas vegetarian recipes 26.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Parsnip rosti, goodwill pie and veg and a chestnut galette: all you need for meat-free menus from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day

When I became vegetarian, most of my family quickly followed suit. Brother, sister, mum and boyfriend all made the transition within months of each other, meaning we had to start some new Christmas traditions of our own. All of sudden, there was no bird to go in the oven at 7am, no pigs to wrap in blankets and our festive traditions needed a rethink.

We’ve experimented with all sorts of pies, puddings and suppers that mean Christmas to us, and these are the ones that made the grade, that I know I will be cooking for many years to come.

New anti-malaria compound causes mosquito parasite's gut to explode 26.11.2014 DNA: Popular News
The scientists have recently found a new anti-malaria compound that causes mosquito parasite's gut to swell up and explode. The international team led by Drexel University's Akhil Vaidya stated that they have discovered a new class of drug compounds that inhibits the malaria parasites' ability to maintain adequate levels of sodium within their cells, leading to excessive water intake, CBS News reported. Malaria is the world's deadliest parasitic disease. It is caused by Plasmodium parasites that spread to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes, causing symptoms including chills, fever, vomiting, seizures and sweating. Every year, there are 300 million cases of malaria and 600,000 people die annually. It long has been a scourge among developing countries Africa, Asia and Latin America but in recent years it is turning up in places like the United States, thanks in part to climate change. One of the biggest challenges for treating malaria is drug-resistance. Vaidya also acknowledged that it will ...
