Researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just five minutes spent playing a game as either a hero (Superman, to be precise) or a villain (Lord...

Why do I crave certain foods?
Researchers believe that liking food and craving it are different things – meaning our brains are more sophisticated than previously thought when it comes to making us eat certain thingsDo you ever get that thing where you compulsively yomp down a food, even though there's something a bit disgusting about it? You think: this over-boiled egg smells really sulphuric, so I'd best gobble it up before I go off the idea. I often crave sardines straight out of the tin. It's not that I don't enjoy eating them, but the fish-oiliness quickly becomes cloying and I can't let my eyes linger too long on all those innards.It's common s...

Marijuana Use: We Need a “Higher” Age Limit
People under the age of 25 do not have the capacity to make sound decisions about substance use or abuse. Their brains are still developing. With regard to marijuana, the logical conclusion to this argument is that the legal age for marijuana use, if a legal use age is to be established, is 25 years old, after the brain has completed its development. read more (Source: Psychology Today Addiction Center)

Tox on the Web: the resurgence of heroin abuse, and more
  The death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman last week prompted a slew of articles about the related problems of prescription opioid abuse and heroin addiction. In the Washington Post, Joel Achenbach points out that despite the recent spike in deaths from heroin overdose, recent data indicated that “[p]rescription opioids are killing Americans at more than five times the rate that heroin is.” Achenbach also notes that use of heroin is increasing as individuals addicted to opioid pain relievers turn to the cheaper and more available street drug.  CBCNews reported on a similar trend in Canada (clip above). ...

Six million Britons are looking for their perfect partner online before Valentine's day on Friday, but their chance of success may depend on clever maths rather than charismaIn the Summer of 2012, Chris McKinlay was finishing his maths dissertation at the University of California in Los Angeles. It meant a lot of late nights as he ran complex calculations through a powerful supercomputer in the early hours of the morning, when computing time was cheap.

Are energy drinks linked to drug use?
Conclusion This cross-sectional survey has assessed the self-reported use of energy drinks and soft drinks among a large nationally representative sample of almost 22,000 US secondary school students.
