Blood Types and Brain Function

I remember a few years ago there were some articles circulating that said your blood type could affect your ability to lose weight. I think that idea pretty much fizzled out. Now, scientific research is showing a link between blood types and brain function. The article was published in Scientific American, so it can be […]

Cause Versus Association

You’ve just entered a room where a person has been murdered. There is a person standing over the body, holding the smoking gun. This is a puzzle of cause versus association. There’s no doubt that the person died of a gunshot wound (cause), but was the fatal bullet fired from that particular gun? If that […]

Good Leaders Have Different Brain Waves

New research using details about people’s lives as well as measuring particular output using electroencephalography (EEG), has led researchers to believe that good leaders have different brain waves than others.  This is important because in the past, we have thought that the reasons were solely based on psychology. However, studies still show that listening to classical music […]

Fat Virus

Yep, you read it right. They have discovered that one of the reasons some people become obese is due to a virus. Lab tests showed that exposure to adenovirus-36 (Ad-36), which causes respiratory and eye infections, also causes stem cells to develop into fat cells. Ad-36 stimulates human adult stem cells to become pre-fat cells […]

Stem Cell Research

This latest propaganda on stem cell research is just too much. Why do Americans, for the most part, believe everything they hear on TV? Facts – there are now nearly 400,000 frozen embryos available for research. Problem – many of these aren’t considered to be primo because of some experimentation with mice, etc, etc. Fact […]
