Is Alcohol Worse Than Ecstasy?

451 Views 0 Comments 49:39

‘Is Alcohol Worse Than Ecstasy?’ takes a scientific look towards the current ranking system of drugs.In a surprising outcome, alcohol, solvents and tobacco (all unclassified drugs) are rated more dangerous than ecstasy, 4-MTA and LSD (all class A drugs). If the current ABC system is retained, alcohol would be rated a class A drug and tobacco class B.The drug policies have remained unchanged over the last 40 years; this film highlights that it is now high time for a change in the current ABC System, which is arbitrary and unscientific in the context of the new research findings.The scientists involved, including members of the government’s top advisory committee on drug classification, have produced a thorough assessment of the social and individual harm caused by 20 of the UK’s most dangerous drugs and assert that this should form the basis of future ranking.

Eat, Fast and Live Longer: BBC Horizon 2012

252 Views 0 Comments 58:50

Eat, Fast and Live Longer explores the recently accepted concept that fasting is key to longevity in the human being. Here science takes the lead to discover what can be done to change the way we live. No pills, no medicines simply fasting.This revolutionary insight looks at a 101 year old Indian man who runs marathons; here we see him running in the London marathon and is happy that the secret lies in what and how much he eats. Mr Singh is remarkable and has never had surgery and never takes medicine…his diet is a simple diet of fresh food and eats normally only a childs type portion.A scientific theory has been existent for as long as Mr Singh has been alive … it is this theory that Michael Moseley examines in this documentary.It isn’t just what we eat but how and when we eat it…following from the Great Depression 1929 – 1033 remarkably, life expectancy rose by 6 years. What is the link between calorie restriction and longevity? Professor Luigi Fontana has conducted studies of many people who have restricted their diets.Meet the CRONIs (Calorie Restrictor on Optimal Nutrition) who eat bucket loads of fruit…and in many instances they eat just the skins and not the main part of the fruit!! 1900 cals per day v 2300 cals per day and this is the basis of a challenge between one of the CRONIs and Michael when they head to a fitness centre to be assessed. Body fat 11% in the CRONI V 27.1% in Michael. The results are very damning and quite conclusive from these tests. The thought is that these results can be reversed by a year on the new diet.We try now to see if the benefits of this diet can be replicated in a way which avoids the necessity to embark on this extreme diet. In the lab there are genetically engineered mice which demonstrate a fantastic difference in life expectancy. A look at a certain population within Ecuador demonstrates that none of them have died of cancer or diabetes but they are small, dwarf-like persons. IGF1 is a growth hormone which has a considerable affect upon certain people…but is there a link?Protein is a link…which pushes us to drive forward instead of slowing us down. How do we lower IGF1…fasting… 3 days and 4 nights of fasting can show very impressive results….water, black tea and one 50 cal cuppa soup… Sitting in a Korean restaurant having eaten nothing all day is not a fantastic thought.Hunger does not build and build but comes in waves which pass…glucose stores are depleted and you then start burning fat deposits and the liver produces less IGF1; or that is the theory on test here….has it been worthwhile? The IGF_1 dropped by a half and reduces changes of cancer. This is an incredible discovery.Along with a change in diet, fasting will need to be once every couple of months to maintain this dramatic change…but is there anything better which is less difficult to achieve? On to another study in Chicago where the research seems easier….alternate day restrictions. Fast day..feed day…fast day…feed day. Animal and human trials seem to indicate this is a much more palatable mechanism to achieve results.Eat whatever you want on the feed day…then eat controlled food on the fast day.Finally, Baltimore and the affects of ageing on the brain. Another mouse takes centre stage and these mice put on the feed/fast diet against standard diet and the results are incredible. Sporadic bouts of hunger actually trigger new neurons to grow…possibly in terms of evolutionary terms it assists survival…fasting does seem to make you sharper!!Simple conclusion: Alternate day fasting is definitely better than continual calorie restriction.Micheal is going to embark upon a 5 days normal and 2 days fasting diet….then test and describe the results after 5 weeks on the diet.His Initial Results:Lost over a stone (14 lbs)Body fat down from 27% to 20%IGF-1 dropped by 50%Diabetic glucose back to normalCholesterol great improvement.Find out more about the 5:2 Fasting Diet.Or try this book!

At the beginning of Religulous, Bill Maher shows a bar graph illustrating the number of people in America who are not religious. That figure is 16% more than blacks, more than Jews, more numerous other minority groups who seem to have no problem making themselves heard and getting Congress to do his bidding. Maher wonders aloud why non-religious people are so underground, and why they are having an impact on the national debate. His film is aimed directly at that 16% of the country, and almost anyone else. His goal, and it clearly has one, is to give people the motivation they need to come out and do something … before it is too late.Religulous begins with Bill Maher, alone in Israel at a place called Megiddo, a useless pile of rubble that many of the world’s religions believe the end of the world will begin. From there, Maher pushes us to an intense discussion, sincere, funny and brutal of blind belief, presenting the possibility that maybe we should all consider doubt instead. Next in the world, as it travels from place to talk with people of different faiths on different continents. What is surprising is that even though Maher definitely has an agenda, does not distort his film in the field of propaganda.It is not propaganda, because Maher is not exhausted and the search for rare birds for use in smear tactics against the devout. Usually anyone who tries to make a case against God goes right to the pedophile priests and the suicide bombers, but Maher makes it a focal point in normal people, religious reasonably correct. Not stack the deck in your favor, do not need it. He talks to truckers in a chapel of the road, talking with random, middle class tourists in an amusement park of Christian themes.He talks to religious shop owners, small town preachers, televangelists, Jews for Jesus, fundamentalist U.S. Senators, Vatican priests, religious scientists, secular Muslims, Muslims, gays, people in United States, Utah (c’mon, we all know that is not really America), Europe and even in Jerusalem. Despite a clumsy excuse to discredit him may claim otherwise, it is not extremists or lunatics. These are mostly healthy, rational people, even intelligent to believe something which Maher believes is insane.

91 Views 0 Comments 58:49

In the fifty years that Sir David Attenborough has been broadcasting, he has travelled far and wide to document the living world in all its glory. In this series, David Attenborough’s First Life, he completes his journey by travelling back in time, to the roots of the Tree of Life, in search of the very first animals to exist.Attenborough has an interesting point to start with his journey none other than his own native childhood home in Leicester, which helped him further by discovering a fossil and that became a turning point in the evolution of complex life. Attenborough continued his journey to fog bound coastline of Newfoundland and the Australian outback, there he unearths the earliest forms of animal life to exist on Earth.His journey further to Canada Rocky Mountains helped him to get more knowledge about the animal diversity. But all these findings became less important when he travelled through North Africa, the rain forests of Australia and the east coast of Scotland, because it gave him a deeper idea about how these animals were successful in invading the ocean, not only that, land and air too.State of the art technology and photo-realistic visual effects help bring to life these wonderful and bizarre creatures. These creatures, from the first animal form that moved to the first mouths that ate, have developed tools and traits to enable them, including us, to survive to this day.

So is there a connection to Michael Jackson and his death from the infamous Illuminati? This brief documentary seeks to present Michael Jackson's stance and draws many parallels to symbolism associated with the Illuminati.Michael Jackson and his family maintain that he was none of these things but of course there are few in this world who know of Michael Jackson and who do not hold their own opinion…rightly or wrongly.The point in question is whether the Illuminati sought to disparage Jackson’s fame and influence because he blatantly flouted many of the Illuminati principles and did they as a group use their immense power to influence the general public?Jackson spoke repeatedly that he was going to be killed through a conspiracy of those would branded him with many labels including :FreakHomosexualChild molesterPeadophileWeirdoDrug userThere is talk of the Illuminati embedding satanic lyrics into Jackson’s songs and seeking every opportunity to discredit him….and he claims to have been infected with vitiligo by them.Did the Illuminati then orchestrate Michael Jackson’s death…murder him?Perhaps we will never know but this documentary does make one think…if only for a while.Wish to know more about the Illuminati? .. visit here http://www.documentarytube.com/the-illuminati And if you care to read something more in depth then visit this site http://www.henrymakow.com/was_michael_jackson_another_il.html"

In the fifty years that Sir David Attenborough has been broadcasting, he has travelled far and wide to document the living world in all its glory. In this series, David Attenborough’s First Life, he completes his journey by travelling back in time, to the roots of the Tree of Life, in search of the very first animals to exist.Attenborough has an interesting point to start with his journey none other than his own native childhood home in Leicester, which helped him further by discovering a fossil and that became a turning point in the evolution of complex life. Attenborough continued his journey to fog bound coastline of Newfoundland and the Australian outback, there he unearths the earliest forms of animal life to exist on Earth.His journey further to Canada Rocky Mountains helped him to get more knowledge about the animal diversity. But all these findings became less important when he travelled through North Africa, the rain forests of Australia and the east coast of Scotland, because it gave him a deeper idea about how these animals were successful in invading the ocean, not only that, land and air too.State of the art technology and photo-realistic visual effects help bring to life these wonderful and bizarre creatures. These creatures, from the first animal form that moved to the first mouths that ate, have developed tools and traits to enable them, including us, to survive to this day.

How Bruce Lee Changed the World

How Bruce Lee Changed the World

81 Views 0 Comments 30:32

The History Channel's How Bruce Lee Changed the World explores the amazing multitude of ways that Bruce Lee - the first international Asian superstar--has influenced pop culture. Calling Lee the biggest movie star in history is a bit of a stretch (though every shot of this hypnotically charismatic performer argues that he might have been, had he not died abruptly before the release of his fourth and most successful movie, Enter the Dragon).A wealth of interviewees, ranging from filmmakers like Jackie Chan (who was a stunt man on Lee's movies in his early career), John Woo, and Brett Ratner, comedians like Eddie Griffin and Margaret Cho, musicians like LL Cool J, RZA, and Damon Albarn, athletes like boxer Sugar Ray Leonard and bodybuilder Flex Wheeler, and more, testify to the enormous impression Lee had on them.The documentary overreaches at some points, but there's no denying that Lee brought martial arts movies to the West and redefined the image of Asian men in the public consciousness (before him, Asian men were fiends like Fu Manchu, servants, or buffoons).Lee's life history is efficiently told and some of the details are delightful--who would have guessed Lee was a champion cha-cha dancer in Hong Kong? His audition for The Green Hornet reveals a movie star just waiting to be discovered. The man himself--lithe and muscular, capable of astonishing speed and grace, radiating both intelligence and passion--makes all commentary unnecessary.
