yogurt probiotics survival after freezing

February 5, 2018

not finding very good data on how much of the bacteria will survive freezing in yogurt.
This “ask the professor” column matches intuition.

However, these two sources say there’s no loss in viability…

Holcomb et al. (1991) reported that both L. acidophilus and
Bifidobacterium were able to survive and grow in soft-serve frozen yogurt after freezing [Holcomb, J.E., Frank, J.F. and McGregor, J.U. (1991), Viability of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum in soft-serve frozen yogurt. Cult. Dairy Prod. J. 26, 4-5.]

pre-frozen yogurt can contain active cultures — just have to check the label.

bikes in NYC

October 11, 2016

#Bike lanes are a sound public health investment Each $1.3K for NYC provides 1 additional QALY for city residents

….But perhaps non-riders benefit more than riders (who are at risk for injury) cc @dspakowicz

New study of the economics of adding more bikes to NYC (ironically published in the journal “injury prevention”).

pop press article:

Every $1,300 New York City invested in building bike lanes in 2015 provided benefits equivalent to one additional year of life at full health over the lifetime of all city residents, according to a new economic assessment.
That’s a better return on investment than some direct health treatments, like dialysis, which costs $129,000 for one
quality-adjusted life year, or QALY, said coauthor Dr. Babak Mohit of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York.

Painting unprotected bike lanes into roads may not reduce injury and death, she said.
