Scientists Invented a Weight Loss Injection That Actually Works

Soon enough, we won’t need to worry about diet and exercise . . . we can just JAB ourselves thin.  And I say, it’s about time, SCIENCE.

Scientists at Imperial College in London just developed a groundbreaking hormone injection that helped people lose weight . . . up to 14 pounds in four weeks.  The hormones made people naturally want to eat less, so they dropped weight quickly.

Obviously there will be a LOT of testing before any of us could start getting these injections . . . but when they’re finally available, look out.

The 10 Most Uplifting Songs, According to Science

If you love music, you know those moments when you crank whatever is on the radio and totally JAM OUT to it.  It gives you such a rush, that you forget about the negativity that may be around you . . . at least for a while.

Three years ago, a neuroscientist conducted a study to determine the 10 most UPLIFTING songs, and it’s making the rounds online again.  For his analysis, he focused on technical things, such lyrical theme, musical key, and tempo.

For example, he said, quote, “Holiday-themed lyrics naturally remind us of happy times, while a major third musical key sounds happy to our ears and something we associate with confidence.  A high tempo of 150 beats per minute also subconsciously triggers a sense of energy.”

A few caveats, he considered songs from the past 50 years, but again, that was dating back from 2015 . . . not that it really matters, since the songs on the list came out between 1966 and 1986.

Also, as part of the study he surveyed music lovers on the moods certain songs inspired in them . . . but that poll was conducted in the U.K.

All right, here are the ’10 Most Uplifting Songs,’ according to science:

1.  Don’t Stop Me NowQueen, 1978

2.  Dancing QueenABBA, 1976

3.  Good VibrationsThe Beach Boys, 1966

4.  Uptown GirlBilly Joel, 1983

5.  Eye of the TigerSurvivor, 1982

6.  I’m a BelieverThe Monkees, 1966

7.  Girls Just Wanna Have FunCyndi Lauper, 1983

8.  Living on a PrayerBon Jovi, 1986

9.  I Will SurviveGloria Gaynor, 1978

10.  Walking on SunshineKatrina & the Waves, 1985


Wine Not Good Before Bed

A new study by Finland’s Tampere University of Technology reveals that drinking two glasses of wine before bed can reduce sleep quality by 40%. One glass of wine can reduce sleep quality by 24%

Researchers tell the Daily Mail; ”When you’re physically active, or younger, it’s easy, natural even, to feel like you’re invincible. However, the evidence shows that despite being young and active you’re still susceptible to the negative effects of alcohol on recovery when you are asleep. hile we may not always be able to add hours to our sleep time, with insight into how our behaviors influence the restorative quality of our sleep we can learn to sleep more efficiently. A small change, as long as it’s the right one, can have a big impact.”
