Enos the space chimp before insertion into the Mercury-Atlas 5 capsule in This rat is being deprived of restful sleep using a single platform "flower pot" technique. The water is within 1 cm of the small flower pot bottom platform where the rat sits. At the onset of sleep, the rat would either fall into the water only to clamber back to the pot to avoid drowning, or its nose would become submerged into the water shocking it back to an awakened state.
Transcript Allow me to begin on a personal note. This is a picture of me, right around the time that my grandma was diagnosed with end-stage heart disease and sent home to die.
She had already had so many bypass operations, basically ran out of plumbing at some point, confined to a wheelchair, and there was nothing more they could do.
Her life was over at age But then, she heard about this guy, Nathan Pritikin, one of our early lifestyle medicine pioneers.
Frances Greger arrived in a wheelchair. Greger had heart disease, angina, and claudication; her condition was so bad she could no longer walk without great pain in her chest and legs.
Within three weeks, though she was not only out of her wheelchair but was walking ten miles a day. That is why I went into medicine. Everything on the website is free. There are no ads, no corporate sponsorships.
I just put it up as a public service, as a labor of love. Where did Pritikin get his evidence from? This landmark article from the 50s started out with a shocking statement: What were they eating?
Actually, very similar to those eating modern-day, plant-based diets. Out of autopsies in Uganda, only one myocardial infarction. Out of age- and gender-matched autopsies in Missouri, myocardial infarctions: This is a list of diseases commonly found in the U.
If you look at the teeth of people who lived over 10, years before the invention of the toothbrush, they pretty much had no cavities. Look, as long as people understand the consequences of their actions, as a physician, what more can I do? This is another disease that can be prevented by changing our diet.
Now, what are the consequences for you and your family? The most likely reason that most of our loved ones will die is because of heart disease.
By age 10, the arteries of nearly all kids raised on the standard American diet already have fatty streaks—the first stage of the disease. Then, these plaques start forming in our 20s, get worse in our 30s, and then, can start killing us off.
Is that even possible? But instead, something miraculous happened. The disease started to reverse, to get better. As soon as patients stopped eating an artery-clogging diet, their arteries started opening up.
Their bodies were able to start dissolving some of the plaque away. Even in some cases of severe triple vessel heart disease, arteries opened up without drugs, without surgery—suggesting their bodies wanted to heal all along, but were just never given the chance.
This improvement in blood flow to the heart is after just three weeks of eating healthy. Let me share with you the best-kept secret in medicine. If you whack your shin really hard on a coffee table, it can get all red, hot, swollen, and inflamed, but will heal naturally if we just stand back and let our body work its magic.
Thank heavens for modern medicine. Our body wants to come back to health, if we let it. But if we keep re-injuring it three times a day, we may never heal. Every morning of our smoking life, that healing process started until, wham, our first cigarette of the day, re-injuring our lungs with every puff.
Sure, you could choose moderation, and hit yourself with a smaller hammer.
But why beat yourself up at all? The human body is a self-healing machine. American Heart Journal, There are some fancy new anti-angina drugs on the market now that cost thousands of dollars a year.Significant Energy E vents in Earth's and Life's History as of Energy Event.

Animal testing, science, medicine, animal welfare, animal rights, ethics Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments that seek to control the variables that affect the behavior or biological system under study.
Animals Used in Research It is estimated that at least million animals are used every year in the multibillion dollar research industry that includes university, pharmaceutical and diagnostic laboratories, and many others.
