>Acorn craze in South Korea
橡果健康食谱风靡韩国
The booming popularity of acorn-based products is putting the squirrel population in South Korea at risk as human foragers steal the rodent's staple diet.
以橡果为原料的产品越来越受欢迎,这使得韩国的松鼠陷入危机,因为人类觅食者要把它们的食物都偷走。
In South Korea food that is made from acorns, including noodles, jelly and powder, has grown in popularity after it was declared a healthy superfood that had the potential to fight obesity and diabetes.
有人宣称橡果是对抗肥胖和糖尿病的超级食物之后,橡果制成的面条、果冻和橡果粉等食品在韩国越来越受欢迎。
As a result, foraging for these ingredients has becoming increasingly common at green campuses, popular hiking trails and anywhere where the oak tree is a common feature of the landscape.
因此,在绿色校园、热门徒步旅行路线和任何遍布橡树之地,越来越多的人开始捡拾橡果。
But it is a fad that is putting squirrels and other animals that rely on the nut, and the oak trees they come from, for sustenance at risk.
但是,这一时尚却使得松鼠和其他依靠坚果和橡树生存的动物失去了食物来源。
A researcher at the National Institute of Forest Science Park Chan-ryul said squirrels needed more than 100 acorns to survive the cold wintry season.
韩国国家森林科学研究所的研究员朴灿录(音)说,松鼠需要超过100颗橡果才能度过寒冷的冬季。
But if humans continue to forage for their main source of food there will be no more acorns 50 years from now in South Korea.
但是,如果人类继续捡拾橡果,50年后,韩国将不会再有橡果。
"We should sympathize with the squirrels' hardship," he said.
他说:"我们应该同情松鼠的苦难。"

监管机构表示,很多电子烟企业以年轻人为目标,用"帮助戒烟"、"健康无害"等广告误导他们。
Many portray e-cigarettes as fashionable and trendy to attract minors, it added.
