 最新消息

自學包裹中高級70、71期

中高級70期簡介:

本期的自學包裹要帶大家探討一個近來很熱門的主題:素食主義。似乎許多團體、專家等,都十分提倡這種飲食方式,主要提出的優點不外乎是環保、對健康有益,甚至許多研究都指出素食能夠有效降低慢性病及癌症的罹患率。首先,文章閱讀部分,提供給大家兩種不同的觀點,究竟是全素食好?還是肉食主義較健康?又或者有其他的解讀方式?透過不同的研究學者提出的研究證據,讀者可以學習如何採用不同角度判斷一項議題,而不會讓單一面向的說法牽著鼻子走。最後,影片觀賞部分,片中的演講者要介紹給大家一個效果令人滿意的飲食法,對於完全素食或完全肉食都感到不夠安心的人,這也許是一個不錯的折衷辦法。

中高級71期簡介:

南極洲冰山的融化速度最近開始急速地上升。雖然離我們很遙遠,但是這個事件和我們卻是息息相關。讓我們一起透過這幾則相關新聞了解它的造成原因,以及對我們的生態帶來的重大影響。
