This seems like a great product in what it can deliver. Here in Wellington, the streets can be incredibly narrow and, depending where you are, quite dark. To compensate, many cyclists use reflective vests, a VERY bright strobe headlight as well as back flashers to help with visibility.

Most of this is great except for the strobe headlights as they can blind or seriously distract the driver, even during the day and even in the rear view mirror.

This paint could light up the cyclist like a christmas tree, but it wouldn't blind the driver as the headlights do. I'd love to see this product come to NZ.

What I like about Dr. Greger is that when he is quoting studies, particularly in this video, he will discuss the shortcomings of a study, if there are any (virtually all studies have some sort of shortcomings...it is the nature of science).

For instance, one of the studies in this video was funded by Welch's grape juice. BUT he also goes on to discuss confirmation of other studies that have less of a conflict of interest, small studies, but studies none-the-less.

What is even better, is the fact that even if all these studies are proven incorrect, do you think there will be a study that would say: For God's sake, stop eating berries!!!!

Holy moly! 
 
Physicists at the Université de Genève (UNIGE) have succeeded in teleporting the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber. The experiment, carried out in the laboratory of Prof. Nicolas Gisin, constitutes a first, and pulverizes the previous record of six kilometers achieved 10 years ago by the same UNIGE team. Passing from light into matter, using teleportation of a photon to a crystal, shows that, in quantum physics, it is not the composition of a particle which is important, but rather its state, since this can exist and persist outside such extreme differences as those which distinguish light from matter. The results obtained by Félix Bussières and his colleagues are reported in the latest edition of Nature Photonics.

If I had to estimate, I'd say I have probably about 2-4 eggs every couple of weeks, whether they be on their own, or baked into other dishes. And from what I've gathered from this video, from the American Heart Association, this amount will cause me very little (if any) harm.

That being said, the problem lies more with the egg industry, rather than the eggs themselves. From what they say in this video, the egg industry completely denies any scientific evidence that links eggs with higher cholesterol or an increase in heart disease.

I've said this before, and I'll probably say it again. Food isn't the problem...the Food Industry is the problem.
Egg industry claims about egg safety found to be patently false, misleading, and deceptive by the U.S. Court of Appeals.
