So I was working on this plant study earlier and didn't like how I treated the colours so I discarded the old version and began a new one. I feel like I better capture the warmth and color harmony better in this rendition. :) Acrylic on Illustration board. #environmentaldesign #environmentpainting #plantart #illustration #green #butterfly #torontoartist #torontoart #traditionalart #acrylic #naturepainting #pleinair #study #wildlife #forest #woods #plants #painting #life

Adding a eucalyptus plant in your home is a safe, natural, and decorative way to keep away unwanted pests like spiders!

Spiders hate eucalyptus, so using a eucalyptus spray or hanging the plant themselves throughout your home can do wonders for repelling the eight-legged creatures. But eucalyptus doesn’t just deter spiders; fleas, other bugs, and pests typically don’t like eucalyptus either and tend to stay away.

Did you know that the average omega-6 (n-6 PUFA) to omega-3 (n-3 PUFA) ratio for Australian adults is currently 15:1, respectively? 🤯 This is extremely high and unbalanced in comparison to the recommendation of 1:1.

Over the last several decades, this ratio has increased due to westernised and high fat diets (particularly in saturated fats) in combination with eating less fish.

So how can we reduce this ratio? We can either reduce our n-6 PUFA consumption or increase our n-3 PUFA consumption. But first we need to know their functions within the body and where they come from.

Both, n-3 PUFAs and n-6 PUFAs, come from the diet.
• Omega-3s are essential for a healthy heart, brain, retina (eye), joints, nerves, and have an ANTI-inflammatory effect on the body (good). We can obtain our n-3 PUFAs from fatty fish such as tuna and salmon, n-3 PUFA fortified foods, and some nuts and seeds.🐟🥜
• Whereas n-6 PUFAs have a PRO-inflammatory (bad) effect on the body. They are synthesised in ALL plants, however this doesn’t mean we should not eat plants. We primarily obtain n-6 PUFAs from oils such as vegetable and corn which are also high in saturated fats.

Pro-inflammatory means that they encourage inflammation within the body. Thus, having a high ratio of n-6:n-3 PUFAs increases the risk of developing chromic inflammatory diseases (I.e. CVD, obesity, inflammatory bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and Alzheimer’s disease). So my lesson today is to reduce your intake of fried foods and foods high in saturated fat, whilst increasing your consumption of omega-3 rich foods. It is recommended that two serves of fish per week can lower this ratio. Studies show that any more than this has no more additional benefits, so don’t go wasting your money for this reason.

Supplementation with fish/algae oil may be used to increase n-3s, however best results come from eating the real deal. 😋🙌🏼🐠

These images should make you uncomfortable. You’ve been spared from seeing worse, but that doesn’t make what’s happening any less bad. 
Innocent animals have to suffer because of humans not recycling. Dispose of your garbage properly. It’s so easy.
-Best way to start? Don’t use plastic water bottles, instead buy a reusable one which you can use over and over again. Even if you think, “I’ll reuse it a few times then dispose of it,” it’s not any better. It takes ages for the plastic to break down, and when it does it’s so bad for the earth. And if you continue to use plastic bottles (even after knowing how bad it is for the earth and wildlife) just recycle your plastic properly and spare the Earth and it’s animals of harm.🌎

Looking up in the rainforest, I see various species of birds feeding, chirping and living harmoniously. On the other hand I'm sorrounded by different plant species. The fresh air and the cool breeze makes me feel more alive. All these reminds me of the benefit of trees and forests to our planet. Not only do they provide habitat to various species of plants and animals, but they also act as mitigators of climate change.
Inasmuch as we benefit from forests, we must not compromise on the forests ability to provide the various ecological and ecosystem services.
