Advertisement Supported by Studies Show ByKim Tingley May 16, 2019 Humans have been drinking fermented concoctions since the beginning of recorded time. But despite that long relationship with alcohol, we still don’t know what exactly the molecule does to our brains to create a feeling of intoxication. Likewise, though the health harms of heavy drinking are fairly obvious, scientists have struggled to identify what negative impacts lesser volumes may lead to. Last September, the prestigious peer-reviewed British medical journal The Lancet published a study that is thought to be the most comprehensive global analysis of the risks of alcohol consumption. Its conclusion, which the media widely reported, sounded unequivocal: “The safest level of drinking is none.” … [Read more...] about How Much Alcohol Can You Drink Safely?

I spent some time this week thinking about the Trump administrations' primary care initiative, in which a percentage of Medicare recipients would get their primary care paid for on a per member per month basis. If that sounds familiar, it's because it's similar to the work companies like Iora Health are doing, largely through deals with private insurers in Medicare Advantage. I caught up with Iora's CEO Rushika Fernandopulle to get a sense of the impact the program might have. Erin Brodwin had the scoop on a psychedelic research … [Read more...] about Dispensed: Tim Ferriss is backing psychedelic research, how to change your business model as told by pitch decks, and how much money healthcare CEOs make

It was absolutely the most boring Super Bowl ever.But one super thing did result from that dull defensive battle won by the New England Patriots.Tom Brady awakened the world to the power of brain training.And it couldn’t come at a better time — especially for millions of aging Americans who face a far more formidable foe than the Los Angeles Rams.I’m talking about the threat of age-related cognitive decline and ultimately, Alzheimer’s disease.The threat of dementia is the No. 1 fear of adults over the age of 60, and with good reason. Some 5.7 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, and unless we address this looming health crisis, that number is expected to grow to 14 million by 2050.But we’re learning how to prevent Alzheimer’s, and one of the best defenses against this deadly disease is the same brain training program that Brady has used to win more Super Bowl rings than he can wear on one hand.Perhaps because Super Bowl LIII didn’t offer … [Read more...] about Tom Brady uses this brain exercise to excel on the field.

“That’s not what we’re about, making people happy,” Scientists mastermind Kim Salmon warns pleasantly enough on the eve of the legendary Australian band’s first-ever tour of the United States, which includes shows at Zebulon on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 2-3. “We’re unprepared for everything — that’s our creed.”The singer-guitarist’s quiet, calm demeanor and dry wit belie the fuzzy storm of side-winding garage-rock riffs and urgent post-punk rhythms that The Scientists have stirred up since forming in Perth, Australia, in 1978. There has always been a rootsy, Cramps-y, trash-rock vibe on such hard-driving tracks as “Swampland,” “Atom Bomb Baby” and “Human Jukebox,” but Salmon’s and Tony Thewlis’ guitars also jet out in postmodern directions that alternately jangle and shimmer when they’re not otherwise savagely ripping it up with distortion and rusty junkyard … [Read more...] about The Scientists Finally Discover America After 40 Years of Searching and Destroying
