102 Year Old Abandoned Ship Grows A Forest In the notoriously polluted waters of Homebush Bay in Sydney, Australia, there is a Floating Forrest flourishing on an abandoned 102-year-old transport vessel. It looks like something out of a movie or some type of art installation, but what makes this juxtaposition of nature and industry so majestic is that the plant-life flourishing on this ancient ship came into being through natural causes. This amazing ship is the SS Ayrfield, a 1,140-tonne vessel built in 1911 as a steam collier that was later used in WWII as a transport ship. In 1972 the SS Ayrfield was brought to Homebush Bay to be dismantled.

11 Abandoned American Hospitals and Asylums With some of the most disturbing and tragic histories of any buildings in the US, asylums and hospitals are way beyond creepy . Many of them were built in the late 1800s, when “mental illnesses” (such as masturbation, menopause, and teenage rebellion) were considered dangerous enough to lock someone in an asylum. A pain-inflicting misunderstanding of mental illness combined with a chronic mistreatment of its sufferers meant that many people were never released and spent the remainder of their lives in these horrible institutions. In addition to asylums, many sanatoriums were constructed around this time to care for the poor and very sick. Utilizing radical treatments that were incredibly painful yet ineffective, early hospitals often created more suffering than good for the inflicted.

That is the first misconception we have to clarify. What it focuses on is consuming the right kinds of fats and carbohydrates, prescribing the intake of unsaturated fats and omega3 rich fatty acids over trans-fats and saturated fats and slow to digest carbohydrates over ones that is quickly converted to simple sugars. So it isn’t a low fat or carb diet but a smart carb and fat diet. Designed by cardiologist Arthur Agatston and dietician Marie Almon originally to prevent heart disease, their patients found that the weight loss the diet induced was evident and rapid and word quickly spread about the program.
