Study Finds That Psilocybin Hyperconnects The Brain


Psilocybins have many positive effects on the human brain, being known to cure ailments such as travel sickness and having magical effects on perception and spirituality.

They have been  used for centuries with cave painting of mushrooms being found dated over 6,000 years ago.

A lack of studies on psilocybins has led to a poor understanding on exactly how the substance works, but a recent study had a ground-breaking result.

The study, conducted at Kings College, London has found that psilocybins have an effect on the brain like nothing else seen before.

They found the compound to be connecting parts of the brain that are usually completely separate.

Study co-author Paul Expert said:

“…the compound connects brain regions that don’t normally talk together.”

The study found ‘long range connections’ between areas of the brain causing a state of synesthesia which accounts for why people describe seeing colours when listening to music.

Fellow Kings College psychopharmacology researcher Mitul Mehta said:

“…through studies such as these we can really begin to tackle the questions of how we achieve coherent experiences of ourselves in the world around us, and understand what makes this break down.”

Scientists Have Finally Discovered Why Consuming Red Meat Causes Cancer


Many people grew up being urged to eat pork, beef, and dairy products for their health, but in recent years have received advice to cut back on animal products especially red meat. 

According to a number of studies, the consumption of red meat is linked with increased risk for cancer(s), atherosclerosis (heart disease), stroke, Alzheimer’s, and even Type II Diabetes…  But until now, researchers have not exactly understood why.

As The Telegraph reports, scientists from the University of California in San Diego believe it mainly has to do with sugar. 

While humans, as omnivores, can tolerate eating meat (and have been doing so for many years, but not in the quantity witnessed today) there is unique sugar named Neu5Gc, found in most mammals but not in humans, that triggers an immune responsewhich causes inflammation.

Mice were used for the study which found that all the evidence linking Neu5Gc to cancer was circumstantial or indirectly predicted from experimental setups. According to the scientists, this is the first time they mimicked the exact situation in humans through feeding non-human Neu5Gc and inducing anti-Neu5Gc antibodies. This increased spontaneous cancer in mice.

This sugar can be found in red meats (pork, beef, and other livestock), cow’s milk and certain cheeses. Because the human body is not capable of producing this sugar naturally when the sugar is absorbed into the tissues, it is perceived as a foreign invader and activates the immune system. It is suspected that over time, the chronic inflammation caused by the immune system response plays a role in the development of cancer.

Thus, those who consume red meat on a regular basis are likely to suffer a stronger reaction than those who ingest red meat occasionally.
