Impact of our food consumption on our environment

Human activities harm the environment by polluting the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the soil in which plants grow. Eating meat has an environmental impact that future generations will have to deal with. The meat industry is a major contributor to issues such as pollution, food scarcity, health issues and the depletion of our oceans. Raising animals for food necessitates enormous amounts of water, energy, and land.

Saying so, it may not be surprising that by 2050 the population is expected to hit by 10 billion people. This suggests that the crops we cultivate, and the food we eat today, will undergo significant changes. Some suggest eating insects, seaweeds and lab-grown meat.

The secrets of advertising!

We’re surrounded by ads, when we surf the Internet, when we listen to music or watch some movies or series. Sometimes, we do not care about them, but others we can be moved by the music, or attracted to some colors or trapped by a catchy rhythm. How is this possible? The answer is simple, it’s called marketing psychology.

According Cambridge University, it can be defines as: “The scientific study of the way the human mind works and how it influences behavior, or the influence of a particular person’s character on their behavior”

Knowing psychology and marketing can help you take your business to the next level or make smarter purchasing choices. It’s used in social media, print media and all types of digital marketing. For example, think of your top four fast-food restaurants. Without knowing who you picked. I know their primary branding consists of either red or yellow or a combination of both.

Did you know this info about our Peruvian chocolate?

In Peru, cacao grows in both the basin of the Amazon Rainforest and the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Specifically, Peruvian cacao is grown in Amazonas, San Martín and Ucayali in the Amazon region, as well as low jungle areas of Cajamarca, Huánuco, Junín, Ayacucho and Cuzco. Additionally, it is grown along the northern coast in Tumbes and Piura.

Believe it or not, as delicious as chocolate is, it is also super healthy. In fact, it’s a Peruvian superfood. Especially in its raw form, whole cacao and cacao powder benefits are abundant. Firstly, it is full of fiber and protein, which support digestion and build muscle, respectively. Secondly, it is booming with trace minerals like potassium and magnesium, which support neurological and metabolic function. Perhaps most immediately notable is its mood-enhancing properties, thanks to its theobromine and phenylethylamine content, which can boost mood and increase energy levels almost instantly.

Cacao health benefits are diminished with processing and sugar/milk additives, but even a good dark chocolate bar can bring quite a lot of minerals, antioxidants and other bioactive compounds.

Did you know that some of the best chocolate in the world is produced in Peru? But don’t take my word for it. At The International Chocolate Awards in 2019, Peruvian chocolate bars received a Gold medal in the Plain/origin dark chocolate bars category. Peru received 17 medals in total. At the Chocolate Show in London in 2017, the award for Best Chocolate in the World went to Cacao Shattell from Lima.

UNIT 7- Did you know, your favorite music can reveal interesting information about you?

Many scientists struggle with the following questions: what does a person’s musical taste depend on, why do some songs and music become “hackneyed” within a few years, while others are quickly forgotten. These same questions do not give rest and musicians, composers, because they want people to like their work. There are many sociological studies that can be accessed through print booklets, magazines, brochures on psychology. This literature is constantly being updated and added to. Let’s try to understand a little bit about the reasons for our musical cravings.

Today the musical world is represented by a wide range of styles and directions. Musical creativity does not stand still and is constantly changing, so listeners are constantly discovering new sounds. In the same way, the musical preferences of not an entire generation, but even an individual, are changing. After all, it’s rare for someone to like only a certain artist and a certain style of music throughout their life. What to say about a lifetime, the music is chosen according to the mood, circumstances, events. A person can radically change their playlist in their player several times a day. But researchers have identified some patterns.
