Hey there! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko! This is the show where I answer your questions that you have about your world and my world. Let’s get started with our first question! Jeremy asks Dear blocko Why do we talk in our sleep? Well, obviously because you have something to say! Is this thing on? Really, talking in your sleep is an often harmless thing that can happen without a clear underlying cause. That said, sometimes talking in your sleep can be caused by certain sleep disorders, like REM sleep behavior disorder or night terrors. While different, either may cause you to yell or talk in your sleep and can lead to physically lashing out. Certain medications, stress, and fevers may also play a role. We’re not really certain whether or not you’re acting out your dreams or if it even has anything to do with dreaming, but…

Translator: omar idma Validator: Fatima Zahra El Hafa So far, we've talked about all the wonderful benefits that sleep can provide. But how much sleep should we actually get? [Sleeping in the science bed] (Music) For normal adults, The current recommendation ranges from seven to nine hours of sleep per night. And what we discovered from epidemiological studies conducted on a large scale That by using that seven to nine hour reference point, Once it starts to drop below that point, The likelihood of your death begins to rise. In fact, the CDC identifies in the United States, Sleeping hours in the amount of at least seven hours a night For the average adult. In other words, the shorter your sleep Otherwise, your life will be shortened. But it turns out that the connection is not quite as straightforward as it might appear. It is not like the more you…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/4L0bkmSbACY hi I'm Daniel Ventura and welcome to the pro mix Academy now if you are looking to start the keto diet here are some of my top tips [Music] [Applause] now if you're looking to embark on the ketogenic diet for the first time it's very important to first of all ascertain the reasons behind it is it because it's a the latest fad or a trend or is it because of a deeper issue as a personal trainer I get clients coming up to me all the time and their main issues being weight loss thyroid issues type-2 diabetes and sometimes in certain cases is epilepsy now if any of those four issues relate to you then the ketogenic diet would be the perfect diet for you and would work very well but if there are other things that you'd like to achieve like muscle building or you…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Dan8qtgQRi8 Recently, low carb diets, intermittent fasting and even prolonged fasting have become very popular and they all have something in common. They move you towards entering the state of ketosis. Ketosis is a state where your body is running primarily on fat, fat from your diet or your body. Ketogenesis is when Fats are broken down into something called ketones. These ketones (or ketone bodies) are usually thought of as an alternate fuel source, because instead of glucose, ketones are used to power most tissues as well as the brain.Sustaining ketosis means restricting protein to less than 20% of your calories and carbs to less than 5% Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of confusion around ketones, most people have been taught that ketosis is a dangerous unnatural state that appears only during starvation or in diabetics… So with this video I’d like to clear up some misunderstandings…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/mMwn5AaBBh0 Eat right, exercise, don’t watch too much TV, keep your brain healthy, don’t smoke, don’t drink too much, don’t drink too little… advice for prolonging life is everywhere, but maybe you’re not living wrong, you’re just living in the wrong place. Sup cotton-top wannabes, Trace here for DNews. Getting older is inevitable and in some places the drudgery of aging is as apparent as grey clouds rolling over a sunny day, but that’s not always the case. In his 2011 book, “The Blue Zones” Dan Buettner used census data to find the regions of the world where people live the longest — Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Loma Linda, California; the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica… he called these areas Blue Zones. Living in each of these “zones” have mysterious benefits: Okinawa boasts the longest disability-free life-expectancy, and Nicoya Peninsula residents have four-times the chance of reaching age 90 than the…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/ONGJuRmuDUw Hi, I’m a scientist and I’m here to tell you that there are more than two sexes and more than two genders. I am a pharmacologist. I have a BSC and an M R as a masters by research in pharmacology, but across both of my degrees. We did lots of biology, related modules, microbiology, biochemistry genetics. We did genetics and immunology lots of things. So that’s what qualifies me to talk about this. So, let’s get on the go science and, more importantly, let’s get on to debunking some of the myths about sex and gender, I’m probably going to lean more heavily on the sex side of things that will become the reason. Why will become more evident towards the end? But please stick around because number one. This is very interesting and number two you’re gon na learn some stuff. So let’s move right on in…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/xREb5exvPho Reason number 1,215 for why science rules: it turns out, we’re all putting in way too much time at our jobs! Science says: work less! Hey there working stiffs, Trace here for DNews! Like many of you out there, I have a full-time job. This. And I generally put in 40 hours a week, or a lot more. But new research out of Australia suggests that I may be putting my health at risk. The study published in the journal Social Science & Medicine sampled roughly 3,800 men and 4,000 women to get an idea of how working for a long time would affect their health. They found that on average, working more than 39 hours per week led to a decline in mental health. Researchers think this is because it gives you less time to eat healthy meals and to take care of yourself.And there were actually pretty…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/nyplH6fUBDQ … and I ate this burrito and I think I got food poisoning That sucks. How long was the incubation period *confused*? What Hey everyone Trace here for DNews? My buddy Jared, who runs the DNews social media pages, got food poisoning today, so we thought we’d pull back the curtain on foodborne illness. People CALL it food poisoning, but the medical community call it foodborne illness, which makes sense You’re not being poisoned by food, but infected by something that’s living on the food Commonly food poisoning is caused by bacteria viruses, molds toxins, parasites or allergens. They range from the fairly well known E. Coli and Salmonella to the far less known, campylobacter, toxoplasma listeria and clostridium perfringens ( clostridEum, per-fringe-ens ) According to the FDA, most foodborne illnesses go away on their own and don’t have lasting effects –. But there are those like E. Coli…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/U7yq-GwbcgE [ ♪ Intro ] Most of us have experienced food poisoning… You know it’s like the vomiting and the diarrhea. The gastrointestinal torment that can leave you huddled miserably on the bathroom floor. But food poisoning, or foodborne illness, isn’t just one thing. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control names 31 unique species of bacteria, viruses, and parasites as common culprits, but there are hundreds in total. And different microbes tend to contaminate different foods, cause slightly different symptoms, and have different incubation periods: the time between when you get infected and when you start feeling bad. So figuring out if you have food poisoning and where you got it can be trickier than you might think. The number one cause of food poisoning in the U.S. is norovirus, which causes around half the cases, according to the CDC. Viruses are minimalist microbes. They’re basically some genetic…
