April 19 Open Science Can Save the Planet
TEDx Brussels Commentary on Open Access Publishing. One of the reasons we have become so ensiloed across professions is the exclusionary, closed structure of historic and current scientific publication systems. The world spends $2.3 Trillion taxpayer dollars on research to produce around 2 million research articles every year, but approximately 90% of our science results are locked away behind expensive paywalls, not widely available to the public, companies or researchers across disciplines. Kamila Markram ,CEO of Open Access publishing company, Frontiers, makes a case for why open science is the key to innovation, economic growth and solutions for a sustainable future. https://goo.gl/8yIVQp

Nature supplement on animal health
A supplement released by Nature (Outlook) "examines how climate change is pushing some diseases into formerly 'safe' regions of the world, looks at the challenges of treating common parasites that affect cats and dogs, discusses efforts to vaccinate gorillas against Ebola and considers how a holistic, one-health approach to disease could further the well-being of humans, pets and other animals".
Evidence points to a strong link between lack of access to nature areas and poor health outcomes and inequality. It associates nature deprivation with higher obesity levels, mental health problems, and mortality rates.

"People have said, 'Well, One Health is great, but it's sort of a public or global health thing and it's not going to affect me and my practice. No, there's a role for clinicians in One Health that we're trying to define and encourage. We feel that clinicians need to be aware of it and implement it in their daily practice." Peter Rabinowitz
