Why Rational People Buy Into Conspiracy Theories Crazy as these theories are, those propagating them are not — they’re quite normal, in fact. But recent scientific research tells us this much: if you think one of the theories above is plausible, you probably feel the same way about the others, even though they contradict one another. And it’s very likely that this isn’t the only news story that makes you feel as if shadowy forces are behind major world events. “The best predictor of belief in a conspiracy theory is belief in other conspiracy theories,” says Viren Swami, a psychology professor who studies conspiracy belief at the University of Westminster in England.

Impact du colorant alimentaire E171 et de nanoparticules de dioxyde de titane sur des modèles cellulaires, in vitro, d'épithélium intestinal Abstract : Micro-sized titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles are used for years by industrials for their attractive physical and chemical properties. The use of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) is also constantly increasing, because the nanometric size gives new interesting properties to particles which industrials are looking for. In some daily-life products including paints, plastics, paper, medicines and food, micro-sized TiO2 particles are used as a pigment for their opacifying and whitening capacities. The use of TiO2 as a food additive, i.e. E171 in the EU, has been authorized in most countries since the 60ies, without any established acceptable daily intake, because of their low toxicity and intestinal absorption. However, it was recently shown that E171 can contain up to 43% of particles with diameter ranging from 1 to 100 nm, i.e.

Food-grade TiO2 impairs intestinal and systemic immune ... Titanium dioxide, which is manufactured as a food ingredient (and referred to as E171), is ingested daily as mixed nano- and submicron-sized particles in the human diet1. While recent reports based on NP models show that TiO2-NPs translocate through the intestinal epithelia, no in vivo study has been carried out to investigate the tissue distribution of food-grade TiO2 particles along the gut and whether the nanoscale fraction of E171 particles presents a specific risk via the oral route. Our study shows that ultrasonicated E171 particles prepared in water before oral administration to rats did not reagglomerate in vivo in the intestinal lumen. Transepithelial passage occurred in the jejunum and the colon after one week of treatment, and the titanium (Ti) reached the liver, exhibiting systemic absorption of E171 as previously reported based on TiO2-NP models13,14,26,27.
List of academic databases and search engines Wikipedia list article This page contains a representative list of notable databases and search engines useful in an academic setting for finding and accessing articles in academic journals, institutional repositories, archives, or other collections of scientific and other articles.

Beautiful Mathematical GIFs Will Mesmerize You Digital artist and physics PhD student Dave Whyte is dazzling our computer screens with his mesmerizing GIFs that are the perfect marriage of mathematics and art. And we can’t stop watching them. Whyte shares his brilliant, procrastination-fueling creations on an almost daily basis on his Tumblr account, Bees & Bombs. Whyte studies the physics of foam and told Colossal that his first geometric GIFs riffed on computational modules that he was exploring as an undergraduate student. To create his eye catching animations, Whyte uses a programming language called Processing. Check some of them out here (caution: may induce serious time wasting):
