Young adults who smoke marijuana (cannabis) from time to time may experience significant changes in two key areas of the brain, which play an important role in emotions and motivations. This is what is stated by a new U.S. scientific research, which, at the same time, does not lead to any definitive conclusion as to how harmful this substance is in small to moderate quantities.
This is the first study that shows that there may be consequences even for the occasional marijuana users, and as the weekly use increases, the possibility of brain damage is rising. Previous studies only found brain lesions in Continue reading
The psychoactive drug seems to help in combating the fear of impending death associated with a terminal illness.
An incurable disease sooner or later makes the person face the fact of premature and inevitable (and possibly quite painful) death. This serious psychological problem should be solved, but it is clear that psychological means are not enough, and some medication that would increase the effect of psychotherapy is needed. In such cases the use of psychoactive narcotic medications is often recommended, despite the fact that it is not always justified by experimental scientific research. Continue reading
The doctors were surprised when 70 potentially lethal tumors disappeared in 2 weeks.
A British cancer patient astonished doctors when 70 potentially lethal tumors disappeared from his body in just twelve weeks.
In 2001, 47 year-old Ian Brooks manifested a rare form of non- Hodgkin lymphoma – a cancer that attacks the immune system. The treatments effectively fought the disease then, but in 2008 the cancer reappeared more aggressive than ever. Continue reading
Rick Strassman in his book «DMT: the Spirit Molecule», claims that DMT, which is one of the most powerful psychedelic drugs, can provide a reliable and regular access to the other planes of existence.
In fact, they are always there and constantly transmit information. But we cannot perceive them because we are simply not designed for this: our ‘program’ keeps us tuned to the standard, mentally ‘normal’ channel. Just a few seconds are needed for the spirit molecule to reach the brain and change the mental channel, opening our minds to other planes of existence.
How is this happening?
American scientists have made a revolutionary breakthrough in the fight against cancer, making up a direct way to deliver drugs into cancer cells without loss along the way through biological life support systems of the body. This effect, according to the American online edition Advanced Materials, is provided by multi-layered nanoparticles.
“A breakthrough in medical science is made by scientists and researchers of the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. They have created double-shell nanoparticles, the core of which contains cancer drugs” writes the edition. Continue reading
It is believed that one day the development of technology will be the cause of death of humanity. And judging by the research projects of the last decade, it may happen sooner than we think, since the modern scientists in their quest to streamline and improve everything sometimes go too far. Here are several controversial scientific developments, which in the future can be dangerous for mankind.
1. Reanimated deadly virus
In 1918, the “Spanish flu” cost an estimated 50 million lives before the human immunity learned to cope with this terrible disease. In October of 2005, the staff of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention removed the virus genome from the lung tissue of victims buried in the permafrost in Alaska and took it to one of the laboratories.
The researchers believe that the study of the Spanish flu will help them understand what may be dangerous for human avian influenza virus H5N1 and the way it can be transmitted to humans. According to Erling Myhre, a specialist in infectious diseases, the reanimation of the “Spanish flu” is perfectly safe – just one year after removal of the virus the researchers presented a vaccine against it.
However, not all scientists share the optimism of Myhre; for example, Jens Kuhn, a virologist at Harvard University, believes that there may be a Continue reading
When we sleep, external stimuli become part of our dreams. Our brain has the ability to integrate the ‘interference’ in dreams in order to make us remain in the sleep state.
Therefore, there are several factors that influence the events and sensations in our dreams. What are they?
Have you ever dreamed that your alarm clock is ringing? Such dream can be caused by the sound coming from an alarm, and it shows how the sounds you hear may actually be Continue reading
It has long been known that high-calorie foods and foods with small amounts of vitamins, which contains a lot of preservatives and dyes, have a detrimental effect on health and can lead to obesity and cardiovascular disease.
2. Cigarettes, alcohol and energy drinks
Smoking will inevitably degrade the overall condition of the body, causing disease of the lungs and heart. Alcoholic beverages, regardless of the concentration of alcohol, are addictive and kill the body slowly but surely. As for the energy drinks, the producer himself says that there is nothing good about them. 1 can of energy drink is equal to 10 cups of coffee drunk in one gulp. In addition, they are addictive and the constant use of them can lead to irreversible effects on the body and the person eventually becomes sluggish and sick.
3. Not getting enough sleep
Lack of sleep is one of the strongest enemies of health. The body needs an average of 7 hours of healthy sleep to properly function. The constant lack of sleep can contribute to the development of diabetes or hypertension. Continue reading
Reality is not as obvious and simple, as we like to think. Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean.
1. Great glaciation.
Great glaciation is the theory of the final state that our universe is heading toward. The universe has a limited supply of energy. According to this theory, when that energy finally runs out, the universe will devolve into a frozen state. Heat energy produced by the motion of the particles, heat loss, a natural law of the universe, means that eventually this particle motion will slow down and, presumably, one day everything will stop.

Probably all of you have heard of astral travel. For some of you, astral travel idea seems crazy. But astral travelling was practiced throughout history, and there are thousands of documents and scientific experiments that demonstrate that astral travel is real. People are afraid of astral travel, as “sleep paralysis” may occur (a consequence of astral travel).
Skeptics have some reasons to reject the idea of astral travel:
- They think that in reality astral experiences are just dreams (It is wrong, since astral travel is a really aware experiment, thousands of people confirm this).
- They believe that those who practice astral traveling are always Continue reading
