The Role of Money and Mold Play

People's economic situation plays a huge role in regards to how they feel about eating leftovers and throwing them away. Some people put a heavy value on leftovers to save money, while others don't.

In addition to this, there are people who get anxious over food safety because of the possibility of food poisoning.

It is recommended to keep the 2-2-4 rule in mind - within 2 hours of preparation, store leftovers in the refrigerator in a shallow 2-inch dish, and consume within four days.

The potential of the electron microscope

In 1938, Helmut Ruska, a German physician and biologist, saw the potential of the electron microscope in the application to the field of biology. Helmut collected images, including the variola virus (which causes smallpox) and presented images of the virus particles at a meeting of the Medical Society of Berlin.

Nearly 80 years later, the electron microscope can identify all kinds of pathogens. There are an estimated 1.67 million viral species yet to be discovered.

  • Fully induced panic attacks;
  • Feelings of dissociation; and even
  • Insomnia

Biohacking: A Primer

Biohacking manipulates one’s brain and body to ‘hack’ it, outside the realm of mainstream science and medicine.

Biohacking, or doing biological activities on oneself, is a broad term and covers stuff like performing ‘Young Blood Transfusion’ or tracking one’s sleep patterns. It took wings from Silicon Valley, where people started broadcasting their intermittent fasting, crazy diets, DNA injecting and the popular dopamine fasting.

How biohackers are trying to upgrade their brains, their bodies — and human nature

Trauma is a distressing experience that affects our mental and physical well-being. It is the unresolved emotional response to a frightening event that occurred.

The concept of trauma was first observed in military contexts, but we can experience trauma anywhere from our childhood to adulthood. Traumatic events vary from witnessing your parents fighting when you were young to being involved in a city bombing.
