Timothy Leary Was Right:
Across history, many people have turned to psychoactive substances for a variety of reasons; many times to effect a deeper change instead of just a temporary high.

Among that list of “shamanistic” drugs like Salvia, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca and DMT, LSD has always been the good-old standby.

Now SCIENCE! is discovering it’s not just for stoners & dropouts. LSD and its siblings may actually rewire the brain and in the process, also fix some other problems.

And a recent brain-imaging study by The Imperial College of London is showing us how…

Healthy French Fries?!?? Nope. BUT! Less Un-Healthy If You Cook Them This Way. -And Maybe That’s Enough Of An Excuse…

An Old Spectre Returns, Bearing Unexpected Gifts:
So forever you’ve been told that Steaming is the healthiest way to go for vegetables.

-And that anything other than the pyrotechnic-majesty of outdoor-grilling was nutritional-suicide. Maybe oven-roasting was a close second.

And so far, we’ve thought the experts were right.

Well some new experts have chimed in on an old bogeyman-cooking-method, and there is some light [if-qualified] at the end of the tunnel for that old health-nemesis: Deep Fat Frying…

A Famous Man Once Said, “We Create Our Own Demons”:
In this video, Kurzgesagt, or “In-A-Nutshell” talks about the future of antibiotics and a few of the problems that are already beginning.

In a very Matrix-y reversal of what’s going on into an idea, they say it this way: Most of Humanity right now is collaborating on the engineering of a Superbug.

And if we don’t change in several ways, the consequences of our actions will let Nature’s worst machines win…

Video: The French Were Right Again. -Or: One Of Your Eating Habits May Be Hurting You More Than You Think

Multiply Paula Deen and Wilford Brimley To The Power Of Ricky Bobby:
In this video, DNews tackles an oddly-common eating habit that might seem harmless at-first; however, it’s anything-but.

The problem is there may be so many different influences causing it, it’s very hard to catch & change.

Whether it’s sibling-rivalry, anxiety, peer-pressure, busy workdays, or just plain-old stress, it turns out Eating Too Fast can really affect your health for the worse. And God help me for giving those damn hipster foodies more ammunition…

Cheap Tech = Future Cures:
Ok, so what do you get when you add entrepreneurial prospecting, big data, big analytics, high-speed robo-testing and gene-sequencing?

So earlier, we told you that for the Jet-Lag drug, UCSD used a robotic tester on 120,000 possible switches to find only 3 keys.

And before that, 23&Me had used its pattern-sniffers to come up with 15 indicators out of 14 Million to find night owls & early-birds.

Well, 23&Me will be at that game again soon to create the very future of medicine…

Science Decodes Circadian Clock:
-Not the man of mystery part. The jet-lag.

So for awhile, we’ve relied on all manner of things to fix sleep-cycle problems, like Ambien, Melatonin, Turkey, and the old standby: High-proof Carolina Moonshine!

Well soon those days will be over if researchers from UCSD have anything to say about it. (sorry, Messrs. Motlow & Beam)

Because they’ve developed a tricky little compound that can actually shift your body’s sleep clock!

Blood Is Only Part Of The Solution:
Awhile ago, we told you how our old friend Elizabeth may have really been onto something age-defying in her own dark-ages nutbar kinda way.

Well in a second round of science catching-up, researchers have found another interesting follow-up to that original Bathory hack.

What the Mayo Clinic docs discovered is an interesting Filter-based alternative to simply getting the odd pint from a young person.

-And it all hinges on a type of cell in our body called, Senescent Cells…

Gentlemen, Start Your Kombuchas! -Antibiotics Cause Bigger Changes Than Previously-Thought

small old fashioned clocks time warped collage

Too Much Of A Good/Bad Thing:
We’ve all been told we need antibiotics from time-to-time. But sometimes, that advice gets taken a bit too far into overuse.

So much so that not only do we now have antibiotic-resistant superbugs, but many strains of old annoyances are on the verge of turning antibiotic-resistant, too.

Well now we can chalk up another issue to watch out for: Long-Term Collateral-Damage…

-And one day, maybe Super-You. Or your super-grandkids.

So a short while ago, Chinese researchers pulled-off some of the first gene-modifications with that new technique from “BREAKTHROUGH”.

What they did with it is to create a new generation of dogs with a very uncommon trait: Super Muscles.

What it could mean for us one day is another set of radical changes; maybe whether we like it or not…

black and white west point baton sprint

One of the problems we have right now with obesity is that we are in an unprecedented time of caloric & sugary plenty in the developed world.

The reason that’s an issue is the human body evolved its metabolism to store fat, so you don’t die in a famine. -A thing we still used to have until very recently.

So now, where the body has not caught up to the times, science has. Because if scientists have their way, your present damnation of excess fat could strangely become your salvation…
