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…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/S1opkMO1w4U Hey, it’s me, Destin. Welcome back to Smarter Every Day. It’s time for the Weed Eater episode. And the way– I wanted to shut the door. The way you can tell that I’ve staged all this is that this Weed Eater’s going to crank up immediately. But here’s the deal. When it comes to operating a Weed Eater, I have a mental model in my head of how the Weed Eater works. Like, as it goes faster, it slings out these lines in a disk, right? But is the disk like a solid line pointing straight out from the Weed Eater head? Or I guess you could call it the trimmer head. Or is it more like a lagging wave? I don’t know. Check this out. [REVVING MOTOR] Let’s look. So if I’m going to weed eat this whole spot right here, I rev up the Weed Eater. But…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/-03NbJWrjto It’s AumSum Time. How much water should you drink per day? 68.273564981 liters. No. Upto 60% of the human adult body is water. But everyday, we lose some of this water through sweat, urine, etc. So, we need to replenish it. Now, there is a popular 8 by 8 rule which says. Everyday one should drink 8 glasses, each containing 8 ounces of water. Whereas, the Institute of Medicine suggests that. The total water intake including all beverages and food. Should be 2.7 liters for women and 3.7 liters for men. However, no single formula fits everyone.But our amazing body itself tells us when we need water. For example, dark-yellow urine is usually a very good sign of dehydration. Exercise, climate and conditions like diarrhea, vomiting, etc. Can lead to additional water loss. So, our body makes us feel more thirsty. This brings us to the conclusion that. The…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/oW6UI_d98Yw More than one and a half billion people use the internet every day, and they search for just about everything you can imagine. We’re all about that curiosity here at SciShow. Which is why we’ve worked with Google and YouTube to answer ten of the most popular questions searched for on the internet. This is The World’s Most Asked Questions. Today’s question is apparently on a lot of people’s minds: How much water do should I drink a day? Well, it’s helpful to keep in mind that you basically ARE water — it’s your body’s principal chemical component.The average adult is made up of about 65% bodily fluid. And you are that way, because pretty much all of your body’s major systems depend on water to function. Water regulates your body temperature and dissolves minerals and nutrients, and helps carry oxygen to your cells. Your body is what scientists…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/G8sOgvCMay0 Another uh part of the trump interview with jonathan swann of axios. I came prepared to play for you and our audience we’ll talk about it. On the other side. You know there are those that say you can test too much. You do know that who says that? Oh just read the manuals. Read the books. Read the book, read the books. What books doctor do they give you the manuals? Do you have the manuals and is anyone in your community complaining of the burden of too much testing? So i’m glad you asked, i watched that interview just a little bit ago and i actually got an advanced copy of the manual. It’S called how to rona by science and if you open it and you skip past the demon, semen and the hydroxychloroquine, it’s you get to testing under the t’s uh. First, you see…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/GLbJZqrNqYc Jupiter, the 5th planet from the sun, is the biggest planet in our solar system. A gas giant, 11 times the size of earth, and 318 times as massive. In comparison, our earth is tiny. The earth is around 7 thousand nine hundred miles across. Jupiter’s diameter is 87 thousand miles. But what if earth were as big as Jupiter? How would that affect the life forms and planet itself? That’s the question we’re asking today on life’s biggest questions.
