The effect of coffee is in our minds, says study

The effect of coffee is in our minds, says study.

"In the mornings, I just wake up after drinking a cup of coffee." Does that phrase sound familiar? It is something that many people who consume caffeine quite often say. Well, apparently that idea would be more psychological than physiological reasons.
Scientists at the University of East London looked at how "real" is the effect of coffee: As reported by "The Daily Mail" , studied 88 volunteers used to take at least two cups of beverage per day.
One group was given coffee regularly, but told them it was decaffeinated. While the other was given the drink without caffeine itself into believing that contained it. Then I did some tests designed to measure the activity of mind, resilience and humor. 
While the first group showed better performance in some tests, did not seem to have a better ability to react. And on the other hand, those who thought they had taken caffeine had better results in all tests.
In conclusion, everything is in our mind. "The findings suggest that the expectation of having consumed caffeine provides an improvement in care that is comparable, perhaps superior, to the effect of caffeine," the researchers said the study authors published in "Appetite".

Junk food wants to land on the Moon

Junk food wants to land on the Moon.

If I am to be honest, when I found this news I thought it was a hoax as a house, but have not found anywhere that says it's a lie I still think it is. In any case, it ceases to be completely, totally and absolutely WTF!?: Restaurant chain Domino's Pizza wants to be the first to open a pizzeria ... the Moon!.
The first thing I thought is let's see, what would it cost to mount a restaurant there? Let's see ... it has been estimated that the costs would total $ 21,800 million (about 15,300 million € at current exchange rates, or so says Google ) and it would take to get 15 rockets and send them to the moon to build a two story building about 26 meters wide, which will also be a restaurant and housing for the workers of the same.
According to Matsunaga, the project manager at Domino's, hope that in future there are many people living on the moon. Uhm ... I guess I will have done their market research and all that, but just to eye I do not know what price they have to sell the Pizza restaurant to be minimally profitable. Unless, of course, that in fact the moon is full of aliens willing to eat pizza and the government is hiding us ...

To harness these benefits, we have to eat the potato boiled and without mayonnaise or ketchup

The work, led by Dr. Joe Vinson of the University of Stranton Pennsylvania, was presented today at the Annual Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS, for its acronym in English) held in Denver, Colorado.
"The potato, more so than any other vegetable , has an undeserved bad reputation that has led many people looking for a power to remove it from your healthy diet, "said Vinson.
Vinson said that "in reality, when prepared without frying and no butter, a potato has only 110 calories and dozens of healthy phytochemicals and vitamins. Our study hopes to help rebuild the popular image of the potato nutrition. "
The research was conducted with tubers prepared in the microwave without mayonnaise or ketchup, sauces preferred by consumers. Eighteen patients with overweight and high blood pressure ate between 6 and 8 potatoes twice a day for a month.
Following this diet , Vinson's team found that the mean diastolic blood pressure was reduced by 4.3% and 3.5% systolic and none of the study subjects had gained weight.
The study explained that due to the high temperatures used in their preparation, the act of frying potatoes destroys most of the healthful substances.
Vinson said that according to the results obtained, the healthiest way to preserve the nutrients of the potato is "simply cooked in the microwave."
