Why we need cruciferous veggies in our fridges right now

What is it?

Derived from Cruciferae (Neo Latin) which literally means cross-bearing, this veggie family is named as such for the shape of their flowers, whose four petals resemble a cross. 

Cruciferous vegetables belong to Brassicaceae (also called Cruciferae), which includes the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, comprises approximately 375 genera, and over 3,000 species.

These bundles of wholesomeness are also famous as cole crops in North America, brassicas in Europe & Australia, also referred to as mustards or the cabbage family.

These plants are selectively bred using Triangle of U for highly desired traits leading to many edible species gifted to us by previous generations.…

Oppy News Digest

Hi reader,

Welcome back to school!! I hope you got some much needed rest over the summer. I personally did not; actually I am pretty sure you didn’t either. I hope you at least had some fun! We at the Oppy have had a rough summer since many of our veteran writers abandoned us (they graduated, but same difference), and our small board just got a whole lot more intimate (we are hiring and we don’t bite, we promise!!).

Opinion: We Can Not Make the Supreme Court Political

There has been quite a lot of discussion regarding the Supreme Court after their landmark Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling, which overturned the Roe and Casey rulings.

Some have called for President Biden to pack the courts to add more justices and tilt the favor back for more liberal rulings. Others have taken more drastic measures by paying for sightings of the U.S. Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe. Regardless of your political position, we need to be very careful with how we view the Supreme Court, as it is the fundamental glue that holds U.S.…

‘Guts’ for Health!

We all have that one friend who’s friends with the entire school and beyond or who is the star of the happy hour even before anyone is drinking up or downing shots. Interestingly, Dr. Johnson of Oxford University has found that people who are extremely social have a more diverse gut microbiome! 

When you are feeding yourself, or your cravings, you’ve got to remember you are not just feeding yourself, but also the trillions of gut bacteria you’ve cultivated inside you. Since the food you put in your gut acts ultimately as an important part of the culture medium for these bacteria, it decides what kind of bacteria die off and which ones survive and thrive.…
