Everything About Coffee
  • Billions of people relish coffee every day, in various forms, making it one of the most popular beverages in the world.
  • Caffeine, the buzz-giving ingredient in coffee, is a natural stimulant found in tea, cacao and coffee beans, and affects the brain and the central nervous system.
  • This psychoactive drug dates back to the first brewed tea, back in 2737 BCE. A little later, coffee was discovered by a shepherd in Ethiopia, who noticed that coffee beans gave a jolt of energy to his goats.
  • Coffee is consumed by up to 90 percent of the North American population every day.

"Teaching" Sleep

During WWII, the U.S. military realized that if fighter pilots didn't get sleep, their poor decisions had dire consequences. Their mishaps included errors that resulted in their being shot down--or shooting down guys on their own side.

Helping combat pilots get good rest fast became a priority. So the military brought in naval ensign Bud Winter to develop and test a scientifically designed method of "teaching" sleep. After just six weeks of practice, 96 percent of pilots could fall asleep within 120 seconds.

The diets today are similar to diets of the 20th-century

Many of the fad diets we follow today share similarities with fad diets followed in the 20th century.

Early 20th-century diets emphasised low-carb and no sugar. Evidence suggested a link between obesity and mortality, causing people to focus on regulating body weight.

Tinnitus: Non-Stop Ringing In The Ears
  • Tinnitus, the ringing or noise in the ears is annoying, and most of us experience it temporarily when we hear a loud noise.
  • Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs also cause it to appear.
  • Chronic tinnitus, the one that lasts for more than six months, is a problem experienced by 50 to 60 million Americans.
  • Most cases are a personal noise experience, though other people can also hear the sound in some cases. Tinnitus is a diverse kind of problem and is more likely in older people.
The benefits of starting a stretching routine
  • Stress relief. Our muscles can tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress. Stretching can help relax tight muscles so we feel more relaxed ourselves. 
  • Increased flexibility. Most researchers agree that 10 to 20 seconds of stretching is enough to increase flexibility.
  • Better posture. Stretching can help encourage proper spinal alignment and reduce musculoskeletal pain, which will improve your posture. 
Dancing benefits
  • Studies have found that dancing can improve balance, gait, walking speed, and reaction time, as well as cognitive and fine motor performance.
  • Dancing may help people with Parkinson’s disease, which is characterized by rigid muscles, slowed movement, and impaired balance.
  • Dancing has been shown to reduce depression, anxiety, and stress and boost self-esteem, body image, coping ability, and overall sense of well-being.
  • Dancing is good for heart health and weight control.
A compulsive behavior

It involves actions a person feels driven to do over and over again.

Compulsive actions may appear to be irrational or pointless, but the individuals may feel incapable of stopping themselves.

Repressed vs Recovered Memories

Memories are the switch buttons of information related to our learning and experiences that can be preserved and restored in the brain of humans.

People having sharp memories have the storing ability to memorize their experiences but the topic of recovering the repressed memories is still contentious in psychology.

Antivitamins
  • As we are moving past the antibiotic era due to rapid bacterial resistance, we need a new class of drugs to treat bacterial infections.
  • Antivitamins aren’t as well known as antibiotics, but were identified way back in 1930 by Sir Edward Mellenby, and were called ‘toxamins’.
  • Antivitamins disrupt the vitamins in a cell from functioning.
'Clean eating' is the most widely followed diet

Clean eating can best be described as a holistic approach to finding foods that are fresher, less processed, and a higher quality. The broader idea comes from the belief that your health is the single most important investment you can make.

Observational studies have linked ultra-processed diets with poor health, weight gain, and early death. While there is no one right way, the clean eating approach prefer food in its natural state.
