The discussion on how degrowth of the economy was required in the first instance before reaching a steady state, is new (see Kerschner in this issue).Cited by:   Historical and spatial varieties in the resulting resource use patterns (metabolic profiles) are then mainly related to the specific phase of a country in this metabolic transition and the co-existence of countries and segments of population (urban/rural) in different phases of the transition process from the agrarian to the industrial Author: Christoph Görg, Christina Plank, Christina Plank, Dominik Wiedenhofer, Andreas Mayer, Melanie Pichle.

The same causal parsing applies to epidemiological outcomes, as per the example of adiposity and cardiovascular mortality. 63, 64 Thus, in a single instance, a death due to cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular mortality rates may be caused by individuals’ adverse physiological and metabolic profiles (e.g.

In fact, the Soviet Union under Lenin and through the s was characterized by a stunning series of pioneering ecological policies, education, research, and theorizing.

“The Nordic diet” is an umbrella term that encompasses any interpretation that combines Food-Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) with local Nordic foods. The five Nordic countries have collaborated on Nordic Nutrition Recommendations for forty years, including FBDGs, so their national guidelines are similar.

The human gut is inhabited by trillions of microorganisms composing a dynamic ecosystem implicated in health and disease. The composition of the gut microbiota is unique to each individual and tends to remain relatively stable throughout life, yet daily transient fluctuations are observed.
