Uptake of tire wear additives by vegetables grown for human consumption

Environment - Jun 5

Irrigation with treated wastewater and sewage sludge brings tire additives into the leafy vegetables. Car tires contain hundreds of chemical additives that can leach out of them. This is how they end up in crops and subsequently in the food chain. Researchers at the Center for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science at the University of Vienna and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have now detected these chemical residues in leafy vegetables for the first time.

International VEGANScreener project assesses the nutritional quality of vegans


An international research group led by MedUni Vienna has developed VEGANScreener, a new tool with 29 questions on the dietary quality of vegans in Europe. The tool aims to provide a quick overview of dietary habits and identify potential areas for improvement. This should help vegans and healthcare providers to assess diet quality, set dietary goals and track progress over time.
