Researchers from many disciplines argue that science would get far more bang for its research buck by looking to solve broader societal contributors to disparities. Housing conditions, segregated neighborhoods, poverty, education, the burden of racism, environmental pollutants, and other factors are likely the main contributors to higher rates of disease and disability in marginalized groups. “We support wholeheartedly the study of health disparities from a wide range of disciplines,” says Michael Yudell, professor of community health and prevention at Drexel University. “Our issue is that race is a poor proxy to understand the biological factors underpinning health disparities.”

"[T]he University of Plymouth has found that managing the density of crab and lobster pots ... increases the quality of catch, benefits the marine environment and makes the industry more sustainable in the long term." Great. Now, how to export the catch.

It has been both salutary and disappointing to go back to original material from the late sixties, early seventies and 1994 and realise that we have basically squandered the gift of the Green Revolution. Not that tomorrow's episode is pessimistic or anything.
