Generating hydrogen fuel from the very air we breathe. Researchers have created an electrolyser that can draw on the water in the air and turn it into hydrogen fuel and oxygen. Green hydrogen, made from water electrolysis, has great potential to store and transport renewable energy. But the process to make it requires water, and many of the places with the highest potential for solar energy are very dry. “In Australia, we have abundant solar energy in the central desert areas, but there’s no water at all – no groundwater, no fresh water. The only water we have is the water from the air,” says Dr Gang Kevin Li, a senior lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, and senior author on a paper describing the electrolyser, published in Nature Communications.

“Air is everywhere, and air contains a lot of a lot of water – 12.9 trillion tonnes at any moment.” The device, called the Direct Air Electrolysis (DAE) module, is made from a porous, sponge-like substance with electrodes at either end. World’s Scariest Drug Can Wipe Your Memory, Block Free Will, And Even Kill You. The drug is said to turn its victims into zombies. Credit: Dream Center for Recovery Rumors are circulating in Colombia of a dangerous drug called the “Devil’s Breath” that’s local and has some calling it the “world’s scariest drug.” The risky narcotic is said to turn its victims into zombies, without any cognitive control over their actions, leaving them vulnerable to their surroundings.

The drug’s real name is supposedly scopolamine and it’s an anticholinergic drug, which means it blocks a specific neurotransmitter in the central and peripheral nervous system. Since it’s used mostly in sketchy scenarios and isn’t widely distributed as a recreational narcotic, doctors haven’t quite been able to test exactly what it is. Most speculate that it is indeed scopolamine, which is a substance derived from the “borrachero” tree in South America. Vice’s Ryan Duffy flew to South America in an attempt to talk to locals and learn more about the drug, and what he found was even worse than most thought. Healthy News and Information. By PAUL FASSA The number one cause of acute liver failure in America is a common fever and cold relief ingredient.

Acute liver failure is a one way ticket to the great beyond, while liver damage or stress among those who don’t suffer acute liver failure is the source of much of our poor health and chronic disease. Over-the-counter pharmaceuticals Tylenol, Excedrin, NyQuil, Theraflu, and prescription painkillers Vicoden and Percocet all contain acetaminophen. This ingredient has forced almost 80,000 ER (emergency room) visits, 26,000 hospitalizations, and around 500 deaths annually. Ironically, concern over liver damage has influenced some physicians to change patients over to more addictive Oxycontin to avoid liver damage from long term use of prescribed painkillers that include acetaminophen in their ingredients.

Long term acetaminophen consumption is dangerous even at prescribed low doses. Source: Natural Society Image Background: Share: Comments comments. 5 Reasons The Most Dangerous Drug Is Not Illegal. Marco Torres, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times Hundreds of millions of people indulge in one of the most dangerous drugs which is sold right over the counter. When it comes to harm done to other people and the users themselves, not heroin, crack cocaine, methamphetamines, marijuana or even tobacco come close to the health and safety hazards caused by this one depressant. Drug harms fall into two broad categories: those that affect you, and those that affect others.

The personal ones include death, health problems (including mental health), accidents, addiction, relationship breakdown and legal trouble. Harms to other people include violence, financial problems, crime and environmental damage — both at home and where the drugs are produced. One rule of thumb is that risks become more serious with repeated use. Perhaps the best guide to the harm comes from the UK’s Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs (ISCD), which analysed 20 drugs on 16 criteria. 5 Reasons Alcohol is Legal 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. This Drug is FDA Approved but Has an Appalling Safety Record.

Dr. MercolaWaking Times Fluoroquinolones are among the most dangerous drugs on the market and should be avoided unless your life depends on it. Despite their dangers, they’re the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics in the United States… In 2010, Bayer’s top two fluoroquinolones (Cipro and Avalox) brought in $1 billion in sales. That same year, Johnson & Johnson sold $1.3 billion-worth of its drug, Levaquin. All antibiotics carry a risk of side effects, but fluoroquinolones are in a class by themselves when it comes to potential health risks. No other antibiotic carries as high a potential to cause serious, permanent injuries and even death, as the fluoroquinolones do. And, adding insult to injury, most victims claim they were never warned that there are dire adverse effects associated with these antibiotics.

What Makes Fluoroquinolones So Dangerous? Fluoroquinolones have fluoride as a central part of the drug. According to Todd R. Dr. In a letter to his Congressman, Dr. Dr. These Common Pharmaceutical Meds Destroy Your Brain. Christina Sarich | Naturalsociety | Sept 23rd 2014 You wouldn’t think that taking a little pain pill would cause long term cognitive impairment, but that’s just one of the commonly prescribed (or even OTC) pharmaceutical medications which were studied in a six-year test to see what kind of neurological damage was caused.

Unfortunately, the research found that these pharmaceuticals, commonly taken for a variety of common medical conditions including insomnia, allergies, or incontinence, cause long-term damage to the brain. The findings point to a class of drugs called anticholinergics, which block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter. “We found that taking one anticholinergic significantly increased an individual’s risk of developing mild cognitive impairment and taking two of these drugs doubled this risk. You don’t have to take multiple forms of these drugs, either. Anticholinergic drugs block a nervous system neurotransmitter called acetylcholine.

Nearly Every Mass Shooting Has This One Thing In Common, And It Isn’t Weapons – Universal Free Press. Whenever gun crimes are perpetrated, liberals love to point the finger of blame at law-abiding gun owners, but a list of mass shooters from the past 20 years proves that they all had one thing in common – and it wasn’t the weapons used. Evidence shows that the common factor in nearly every mass shooting is that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been taking them at one point before committing their crimes.

Multiple credible scientific studies going back more then a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. The extensive list shows how psychotropic drugs are linked in every case of murder and suicide: Missing from list… 3 of 4 known to have taken these same meds…. Is Big Pharma Behind the Rise of Gluten Intolerance? A new study published in the American Journal of Physiology reveals that a popular NSAID drug known as indomethacin may be triggering celiac disease in those who eat gluten-containing foods such as wheat. Image credit: tim_vanreenean Titled, “Gliadin intake alters the small intestinal mucosa in indomethacin-treated HLA-DQ8 transgenic mice,” the animal study concluded that the protein gliadin (one of several prolamine proteins in wheat together colloquially known as a ‘gluten’), ‘…in combination with COX inhibition [produced through indomethacin treatment] caused a basal inflammatory status and an oxidative stress condition in the small intestine of DQ8 mice [a celiac disease susceptibility gene], thus triggering the mucosal lesion and, subsequently, an antigen-specific immunity.”

The researchers found that, “Notably, after a 30-day treatment enteropathic mice developed serum antibodies toward gliadin (IgA) and tTG (IgG). Source: References: [2] T Khazaeinia, F Jamali. People With Higher IQ's Are More Likely to Use Illegal Drugs... Why? Sarah Bon, The FixWaking Times Researchers have found that those with high childhood IQs are more prone to illegal drug use as adults. But what does this correlation really mean? Two major papers have found a positive correlation between high childhood IQ and adult drug use. Perhaps it is the concept of intelligence that needs to be reconsidered in order to answer the question; IQ does not measure emotional intelligence or creativity.

Longitudinal studies observe variables over extended periods of time. Cohort studies are longitudinal studies of groups of people with shared characteristics or experiences; for example, the 1958 study follows the lives of 17,000 people born within the United Kingdom in a single week in 1958. The cohort is that group of 17,000 people. The 1958 cohort consists of 3,509 males and 3,204 females. While the strengths of this study are the size of the sample and the length of participant contact, there is limited data on the actual patterns of drug use.
