Binaural beats therapy is an emerging form of soundwave therapy in which the right and left ears listen to two slightly different frequency tones yet perceive the tone as one. The binaural auditory beat that a person hears is the difference in frequency between the left and the right ear and should be at frequencies lower than 1000 hertz (Hz) for the brain to detect the binaural beat. For example, if the left ear registers a tone at 200 Hz and the right at 210 Hz, the binaural beat heard is the difference between the two frequencies — 10 Hz. Research has shown that when a person listens to binaural beats for a recommended time, their levels of arousal change. Researchers believe these changes occur because the binaural beats activate specific systems within the brain. An electroencephalogram (EEG) that recorded the electrical brain activity of people listening to binaural beats showed that the effect on a person's body varied according to the frequency pattern used. The four … [Read more...] about What are binaural beats and how do they work?

When you go to IKEA, you probably expect to blow a bunch of money on inexpensive trinkets you didn’t know you needed, cheap furniture, and those amazingly good Swedish meatballs. What you don’t expect is to have a run-in with human traffickers—but that’s what one southern California mom says happened to her during a recent visit to the store.Diandra Toyos shared a story on Facebook that went viral in which she says two men who appeared to be human traffickers followed her, her mother, and her children around the store. “After a few minutes, I noticed a well dressed, middle aged man circling the area, getting closer to me and the kids. At one point he came right up to me and the boys, and instinctively I put myself between he and my mobile son,” she wrote.Diandra says her mom noticed it, too, and said they needed to keep an eye on the man as well as where the children were. “We moved on... and so did he. Closely,” she says. At the same … [Read more...] about This Mom Claims She Encountered Human Traffickers At IKEA And People Are Freaking Out
Take a look around. Right this very second there's a water bottle within a 10-foot radius of where you're sitting. How did it get there? A drop of physiological need mixed with an ocean of marketing savvy. Water used to fuel the office water cooler; now it's practically become an anytime-anywhere fashion accessory. Fashionistas — not to mention the mailman, the grocery clerk, your yoga instructor, and the school nurse — can all be seen carrying their bottles and Camelbacks of purified, fortified, and natural spring. And whether you're staying hydrated during a marathon shoe-shopping session or drinking from your home Brita filter, there is no doubt about it: Water, water — it's everywhere. But as with any mainstream megatrend, you have to stop and ask yourself, "What's really going on here?" When water bottles become must-have equipment on a planet that's 70 percent liquid, some of the reasoning is bound to be bunk. Myth: You need to drink eight glasses of water every … [Read more...] about Think You Know How To Drink Water?
(Natural News) More than a few young boys and girls grow up dreaming of being a superhero someday, with superhuman strength. But of course, that’s just the thing of fictional movies and Saturday morning cartoons, right?Not so fast.A report posted on the Anonymous website states that for two decades scientists have been studying subjects in China who appear to have superhuman powers, with the results of said studies having been published in a number of books and journals.The report said that it is believed that these “gifted” individuals may have figured out how to tap into a quantum reality that is not observable to the human eye.To understand that correctly, the report goes on, it is necessary to be aware of a relationship between our consciousness and our physical realities. Both are very real, and they share a complicated relationship. Indeed, the creator of the quantum theory, Max Planck – a German theoretical physicist whose work on the theory won him a … [Read more...] about Hoax or legit?

Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Although Botox is a powerful poison, when used correctly, it has a number of applications. In this article, we will explain how it works, what Botox is used for, and talk about any side effects and dangers. Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium from which Botox is derived, is found in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, and forests. The bacterium can also be found in the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish and in the gills and organs of crabs and other shellfish. Such naturally occurring instances of Clostridium botulinum bacteria and spores are generally harmless. Problems only arise when the spores transform into vegetative cells and the cell population increases. At a certain point, the bacteria begin producing … [Read more...] about Botox: How does Botox work?
Working night shifts disrupts the body's circadian rhythm, which a number of studies have found may raise the risk of cancer development. Now, researchers have shed light on the mechanisms behind this association. Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reveal that disruption to the circadian rhythm also leads to the impairment of two tumor suppressor genes, which can spur tumor growth. Lead author Thales Papagiannakopoulos, of MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, and colleagues publish their findings in the journal Cell Metabolism. Around 15 million people in the United States work night shifts or other irregular schedules, which studies have shown may have negative implications for health. A study reported by Medical News Today last year, for example, found a link between rotating night shift work and increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, and all causes. Shift work interferes with the body's circadian … [Read more...] about How night shifts can increase cancer risk
Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. Among other roles, it promotes the development and maintenance of female characteristics in the human body. Estrogen is a generic term for estrus-producing compounds; the three most common naturally occurring estrogens are: Estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), and estriol (E3). Estrogen is produced by the ovaries and in smaller amounts by the adrenal cortex (The outer segment of the adrenal gland located on top of each kidney), testes (testicles), and fetoplacental unit (the fetus and the placenta). Estrogen is considered to be the "female" hormone, whereas testosterone is considered the "male" hormone. However, both hormones are present in both sexes. Estrogen hormones play an essential role in the growth and development of female secondary sexual characteristics such as breasts, pubic and armpit hair, endometrium, and the regulation of the menstrual cycle and reproductive system. During the menstrual cycle, estrogen acts to produce … [Read more...] about Estrogen: How Does Estrogen Work?

Crepey skin is a natural result of aging that can appear all over the body, from under the eyes to the neck and chest. With age, our skin slowly loses the elastin and collagen that keeps the skin flexible and firm. The loose, and sometimes saggy, thin skin may be a source of self-consciousness. So, in this article, we discuss how to get rid of the crepey skin naturally, as well as the various causes and possible ways to treat it. In this article: What Causes Crepey Skin?

If you thought the Galaxy was sharp, just wait. Samsung recently partnered with the South Korean government and 13 companies from all over the world to develop an 11k resolution display. Almost three times sharper than the clearest commercially available screen currently available, this announcement gives Samsung a huge advantage over it’s competitors, who have yet to even announce the development of an 8k screen. Resolution refers to the number of pixels on a monitor screen; the more pixels in a display, the clearer the image. To give you an idea of what makes 11k resolution so special, take a look at the following: 720p resolution= 1,280 X 720 pixels 1080p resolution (generally accepted industry standard)= 1,920 X 1,080 pixels 4K resolution (currently only available on TVs)= 3,840 × 2,160 pixels 8k resolution (still in development) = 7,680 × 4,320 pixels 11k resolution= 11,264 х 6,336 pixels It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that 11,264 is a lot … [Read more...] about Samsung Working on an 11K Resolution Display for Mobile
