Are We Real or Holograms?, Fortified Seasonings Fight Nutrient Deficiencies, Send Cancer Cells into Space for Radiation Study, Does Marijuana Use Reduce Domestic Violence?
Are We All Real or Are We Just Holograms? Most, if not all of us, think of ourselves as real, living and breathing people, actual 3D physical objects. But according to quantum physics, all of us and our entire world and universe could, in reality, just be a simple 2D hologram, a kind of optical […]
Scientists have come up with a technique that could make cleaning radioactive elements from the air, such as krypton, xenon and radon, easier and cheaper than current technologies. While those radioactive materials naturally mix in the air, the quantities are usually low — typically less than one part per million. The international research team from […]
Obese children face many more immediate health issues and are at increased risk for medical, mental and developmental problems than was previously thought, according to a new report. The study based on UCLA research found that obese children – those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) in the 95th percentile or above - are nearly two times more likely […]
