New plant reference book:
A new reference book written by a USDA scientist and his university colleague should prove to be an invaluable resource for researchers, plant breeders, librarians or anyone who wants basic, accurate information about important plants. (3/17) http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/pr/2014/140317.htm
Scrutinizing dietary products:
While surfing the web, consumers often see ads promising "one tip to a flat belly." But the real tip is accurate consumer information about the products that are being marketed. African mango (AM) supplements are among the various products that appear at the end of these "one tip" ads. USDA scientists have studied African mango supplements and found that none of the labels on the ones they tested provided accurate information for consumers.
