Processed Foods: Origins
  • 400,000 years ago, man decided to cook meat on fire, and the first ‘processed’ food was consumed.
  • Agriculture started about 15,000 years ago and gave way to fermentation of alcohol and dairy products, baking, and preservation of meat by salt or brining.
  • Food processing has been important for keeping food edible for long, and to create new flavours.

Cancer has increased markedly

More than half of all Britons today are expected to get cancer in their lifetime.

Recent archaeological research from earlier eras showed that about 10 percent of pre-industrial residents suffered from cancer in pre-industrial Britain. People were exposed to carcinogens in alcohol consumption and indoor pollutants from wood and coal fires. But cancer markedly increased when tobacco was introduced and with the pollution caused by the industrial world.

Our Pain Perception About Exercising

Our pain perception about an upcoming exercise activity greatly affects our tolerance levels during the it, as per a study conducted by researchers at the University of Southern Denmark.

It is a known fact that exercising regularly provides a natural high, with feel good chemicals like endorphins and endocannabinoids surging inside your mind and body. What is not known is that our prior expectation about our exercise dominating our entire experience of it.

The Flexitarian Diet

When diet fads are scattered all over, it's difficult to find one that actually works for us for the long haul.

The flexitarian diet is an easy diet to follow that isn't restricting. The name itself means that it is a flexible vegetarian diet, hence, flexitarian. It is focused on having a diet that is more on being pro-plants but not anti-meat.

We don't know how sleep evolved
  • Research has linked sleep with memory processing, emotional stability and even cleansing.
  • Most animals have their own circadian rhythm, or body clock. Even the cells in the body have a rhythm, so it's vital for organisms to have a way to sync these.

Perhaps sleep arose to group the body's processes, ensuring that specific processes don't conflict with one another.

White Noise

The essential idea of white noise is to create constant and unchanging background noise to help us fall asleep or to study. From crickets chirping to distant thunder noises, white noises drown out any potentially distracting sounds.

The adjective "white" was used to describe the sound because its ultimate combination has similarities to the qualities of white light.

Our moods and emotions play a powerful role in our behavioral choices and health.

Extensive studies show that sadness is related to tobacco use, with people wanting to puff away more frequently while being sad.

This new finding suggests smoking may not just be a habit, but deeply entwined with our emotions, and can be beneficial for future anti-smoking programs.

The healthy mind filters through thoughts

A mind in a healthy state is continuously performing a set of manoeuvres that uphold our moods.

A healthy mind is an editing mind that filters through particular ideas and sensations that actively need to be entertained so that we can direct our lives effectively.

The Power Of The Moon On Humans
  • The belief of the moon's power to drive the emotions and feelings of human beings is well-documented.
  • Lunacy is the word describing madness, directly connecting it to Luna, the name of our moon.
  • In any country, hospital emergency units and police stations will vouch for the fact that there are more accidents, violent incidents and other emotion-related crimes on full moon days.
Don't Skip Your Vacantion

Studies show that working for extended periods of time without a break has an adverse effect on one’s overall performance.

Going on a (relaxing) vacation has immense benefits like greater creativity, lower stress and improved productivity. Taking a mental time off from work while on vacation creates a creative space inside our heads, making us work better once we are back.
