Polyamory Increases Testosterone, Makes You Live Longer

September 5, 2017 at 1:07 am





A 2007 study that didn’t get much publicity found that polyamorous people have higher testosterone levels than both single people and people in monogamous relationships.

It’s long been known monogamously married men have lower testosterone levels than (presumably more promiscuous) single men, but polyamourous men (and women!) in multiple committed relationships have the highest testosterone levels of all.

Why Modern Humans Need to Fast, Scientists Explain

Why agricultural humans need to mimic the eating and non-eating patterns of hunter-gatherers

For hundreds of thousands of years, our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate food only intermittently. When they killed a large animal, the tribe feasted for days, when they didn’t, they might go a day or two without eating much or anything at all.

In the modern world, it is almost inconceivable for people to skip more than one meal. While we might think of it as a great advantage, our continual supply of calories actually comes along with many disadvantages.

The Placebo Effect Proves We Can Heal Ourselves With Our Minds

July 16, 2017 at 3:59 am




In a documentary called The Power of Thought, stem-cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton estimates at least a third of all healings – including those involving drugs, surgery and all other allopathic treatment – have nothing to do with the treatment itself, but everything to do with the patient’s belief in the treatment.

The placebo effect, as defined by Google, is a “beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment.”

What a Hunter-Gatherer Diet Did to a Man’s Gut Bacteria in Just Three Days

July 7, 2017 at 5:46 pm

After just three days of living and eating with the Hadza gatherer-hunters, the gut flora of a relatively healthy British professor were transformed for the better.




Tim Spector, a genetic epidemiology professor at King’s College London, has been studying the “major influence” gut bacteria (and other microbes) have on our immune system, metabolism, mood and general health. What he and his colleagues have found is the greater the gut flora diversity – the more types of microbes – the better. High diversity is associated with low risk of obesity and all types of disease.

Man Relives Circumcision in Somatic Therapy

May 11, 2017 at 9:46 pm

A man claims to have relived his circumcision multiple times during a series of orgone therapy sessions:




In a therapy similar to somatic therapy he remembered lying in an operating room and not being able to move his arms. He remembered the doctor making eye contact, “and then I felt the shock of the pain in my genitals.”

Waking up before the sun is throwing off our circadian rhythms, causing sleep deprivation and all kinds of disease, Oxford neuroscientists say

 

Employers worldwide have been “torturing” their employees with sleep deprivation since the industrial revolution by making them come to work when they should be sleeping, says Dr. Paul Kelley of Oxford University’s Sleep and Circadian Institute. The same goes for schools and their students.

Kerrygold Butter Was Too Popular, So Wisconsin Outlawed It

February 21, 2017 at 8:33 pm




It’s no surprise that America’s Dairyland isn’t thrilled by the increasing popularity of a foreign competitor, but the depths to which the State of Wisconsin has stooped to outlaw Kerrygold Irish butter are outright un-American:

Photo of Breast Milk Repelling Harmful Bacteria Goes Viral

February 10, 2017 at 9:31 am




Amazing photo shows how breast milk repels harmful bacteria like e.coli and MRSA

A photo showing droplets of breast milk fending off armies of harmful bacteria in Petri dishes is going viral on Facebook.

The photo, posted by a biology student in England, features nine Petri dishes completely colonized with the bacteria M. Luteus, except in the center, where tiny puddles of breast milk have created what looks like “moats” of protection around themselves.

The student, Vicky Green, said she had similar results with Petri dishes full of e.Coli and the dreaded anti-biotic resistant “super bug” MRSA.
