"Of course, alternative and complementary medicine and science have a rich, and ancient, history of viewing the body in terms of energy, which is fundamentally what physics is about. Traditional Chinese medicine and Indian ayurvedic medicine have long explored the energies of the body. Acupuncture and homeopathy are practiced widely in Asia and Europe (Britain, for example, has at least four exclusively homeopathic hospitals) and are slowly gaining acceptance in the United States and elsewhere."

"Thus they cannot be considered as material things, and the concepts of measurement and observation, two words often used in science, take on special meanings in quantum mechanics. The point is that quantum entities are not things but are probability waves. That is, an electron is less like a solid object, say a billiard ball, and more like a cloud, a fog of potentiality, with a probability of the electron being anywhere in that fog until it is measured."

"Through my research, I was utterly caught up in the passion of trying to make psychiatry a "real" science. Around the same time, I came across an article about a hospital in Norway that was offering depressed patients the option of treatment with antidepressants or daily exercise. This was a shock: These drugs were really just being introduced, and the results were forcing us to change the way we thought about treatment, yet here was a hospital offering exercise for people with severe depression. And it was working! But the results were lost in the shuffle."

"There are fundamental limits about what we can know about a quantum entity, say a particle, at any one time, which is a very different state of affairs from how science functions in our classical macroworld. If you throw a softball, you can, according to classical rules, know precisely both how fast it is going and where it is at every point in its trajectory. With a quantum softball, however, the more you know about the ball's speed, the less you can know about its location."

"In recent years, students in China, Japan, and Singapore have outpaced American kids in these crucial subjects, but Naperville is the conspicuous exception: when its students took the TIMSS, they finished sixth in math and first in the world in science. As politicians and pundits sound the alarm about faltering education in the United States, and about our students being ill-equipped to succeed in today's technology-driven economy, Naperville stands out as an extraordinary bit of good news. I haven't seen anything as uplifting and inspiring as Naperville's program in decades."

"What I aim to do here is to deliver in plain English the inspiring science connecting exercise and the brain and to demonstrate how it plays out in the lives of real people. I want to cement the idea that exercise has a profound impact on cognitive abilities and mental health. It is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems. I've witnessed this among my patients and my friends, a number of whom have given me permission to tell their stories here."

"I'll explain the science of how exercise cues the building blocks of learning in the brain; how it affects mood, anxiety, and attention; how it guards against stress and reverses some of the effects of aging in the brain; and how in women it can help stave off the sometimes tumultuous effects of hormonal changes. I'm not talking about the fuzzy notion of runner's high. I'm not talking about a notion at all. These are tangible changes, measured in lab rats and identified in people."

"Think of a new field of science as a large jigsaw puzzle. Pieces are discovered one by one, and at first they are unlikely to fit together to make a picture. Things can look distinctly unpromising, sometimes for decades. But if you can bear the pain of feeling stupid and the humiliation of being wrong, anecdotal evidence is the call of the wild, the surest sign of the undiscovered. Columbus set sail on the basis of anecdotal evidence. The Mayan hieroglyphs were deciphered using anecdotal evidence."
- Luca Turin, The Secret of Scent: Adventures in Perfume and the science of Smell (Get the book.)

"Current science accepts that the act of observing something, at least at the subatomic level, changes the behavior and characteristics of the thing observed. This implies that consciousness has a direct and observable affect on the structure or composition of matter. This has been borne out in so many classic experiments in quantum physics that it is now considered a fundamental principle. At the level of the photon, consciously directed intent can alter the behaviors of the fundamental constituents of matter."
- Richard Bartlett, Matrix Energetics: The science and Art of Transformation (Get the book.)

"Part of the reason for the lack of interest in the subject must be that smell science produces little that is useful to the sober pursuits of medicine and technology. There are few diseases of smell, and those that exist are usually incurable and get little sympathy. And though it is big business, fragrance is a low-tech, frivolous and fickle world. The relative neglect of smell compared to other senses may also have to do with the fact that it cannot be easily transmitted like images and sound. As a colleague of mine put it, 'You still can't fax a perfume."
- Luca Turin, The Secret of Scent: Adventures in Perfume and the science of Smell (Get the book.)

"In a breathtaking seven pages, Dyson stakes out so much ground that smell science is still catching up today. But the centrepiece of his demonstration comes first. With typical panache, he says, 'Let us commence the inquiry with a simple case -selecting some group of substances with an indisputably characteristic odour which is unlike that of the vast majority [...] I have selected the mercaptans (-SH) as the most suitable; once their powerful and clinging odour has been observed it forms a most vivid impression and most chemists would recognize it again. [..."

"What is important about all this is that the social behaviour of atoms - the branch of science known as chemistry -depends largely on how many atoms there are in the outer orbit. It is as if atoms are more comfortable with filled orbits, and are constantly searching for partners to swap electrons and achieve peace. For example, if one atom has seven electrons in its outer circle, it behaves like a collector trying to fill that yawning gap on its shelf and snaps up any electron around."

"DYNAMIC DUOS: THE EMERGING science OF FOOD SYNERGY As we've discussed, studying the specific health-boosting benefits that different foods can offer one another is a very new approach to the science of nutrition. However, this is only the beginning; emerging research suggests that more studies will follow. One researcher leading the pack is John W. Erdman, Jr., PhD, professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He decided to start looking at foods in combination as a way to learn more about real diets eaten by real people. "

"Food companies and the fast-food industry have used marketing as well as the science of food technology to trigger wanton gluttony in a way that is eerily similar to the methods the tobacco companies employed to develop more addictive cigarettes. The food industry, through lobbying, coercion, greed, and advertising, has influenced us to make dietary choices that fatten us up and harm our health."
- Michael T. Murray and Michael R. Lyon, Hunger Free Forever: The New science of Appetite Control (Get the book.)

"We feel that the most exciting area in obesity research is the science of satiety—the study of what properties, nutrients, or elements in food result in a sense of fullness or satiety. There are several important properties of food that can either promote satiety or contribute to overconsumption. Choosing foods that promote satiety and avoiding or limiting the intake of those foods that contribute to overconsumption is critical to long-term weight control. Ultimately the satiety-promoting effects of a food relate to its influence on the appetite control centers in the brain."

"They can separate fact from fiction and healthy eating plans from unsafe diets, and translate the science of nutrition into healthy food choices. They can help you become more aware of your eating behaviors, and they can help you to understand where the extra calories have come from that have resulted in your weight gain. Dietitians are experts on providing practical information about how to change your individual diet into a healthier lifestyle."

"While it is wonderful that the science of medicine has grown to such great maturity, let us never forget or abandon the Art of medicine. The necessary counterpart of dry mechanical knowledge and procedures must always reside within the heart and soul of the healer. This is something that one just is; it cannot be taught in medical school as an elective course. In Matrix Energetics we choose a different path from the reliance on ideas that embrace a diagnosis-and-treatment model of health care."

"My research on psychoenergetic science, as well as that of my colleagues, has revealed the existence of a second, unique level of physical reality that may or may not be strongly coupled with our normal par- Figure 1 Every one of us can influence all biological life forms around us via our biofield emissions and the information that they carry, whether we intend to or not. ticulate electric atom/molecule level of physical reality, that which we are all cognitively aware of at the conscious level."

"Professor Emeritus, Stanford University PREFACE JTJ^ACH NEW GENERATION of our human community has been inspired by the science of its time. Principles that we may or may not fully understand, but that we intuitively know to be true, reshape our thinking, and in doing so, reshape our experience of the world and what we may be willing to do. During Galileo's time, the idea that the sun, not the earth, was the center of the universe nearly cost him his head. As it was, it silenced him and forced him into obscurity for the rest of his life."

"One aspect of the body being overlooked is its quantum nature. However, the NES theory of health is built around what happens in the body at the subatomic level. Physics underlies, even drives, chemistry. So to understand what is really happening in the body, you have to understand something about what is happening at the smallest known scale. This is the scale of electrons, protons, photons, and quarks—the entire "particle zoo" of quantum physics. It's all relative, as they say, which is why understanding the levels of the body is so important. As physicist Kenneth W."

"Structural Chemistry," in Livermore, Arthur H., science in Japan, (Washington, DC: The American Association for the Advancement of science, 1965), 239?66). In 1926, Dr. James B. Sumner was able to determine that enzymes are actually proteins. As a result of this, he successfully crystallized an enzyme, marking the beginning of commercial enzyme production and the use of enzymes as dietary supplements and food additives. Elsewhere, enzyme therapy was heading down a slightly different path through investigations into the use of enzymes from animals."

"However, the historians of the XVII-XVIII century were driven by altogether different considerations, neither caring much for tin, nor indeed for science itself. None of them would consider consulting with a chemist. As a result, "ancient" Greek heroes happily hack at each other with bronze swords that need tin for their manufacture, which has not yet been discovered. Modern chemists are naturally confused by such historical tableaux, and are earnestly questioning the reasons for the existence of such oddities in the Scaligerian history of chemistry and metallurgy."

"Some science about Liver Metabolism Understanding the science behind things can help to motivate you to eat and do the right things. For this reason I usually show my patients charts about how hormones break down inside them and how certain vitamins and foods can help hormones metabolize more safely. As I've said, your liver is like a waste treatment facility and you don't want it to become overloaded. If your cells are overworked processing caffeine, alcohol, prescription drugs, or pesticides, then it may not do a very good job when it gets around to your hormones."

"Much has been written about how to lose weight, and unfortunately the majority of the information is based on misinterpreted science or pseudoscientific mumbo jumbo. Life-threatening complications can result from strictly following some of the popular diet "expert" advice. Although what we have to say here won't make us popular with the fake science crowd or sell a lot of poorly conceived diet books, the basic, un-sexy truth about how to effectively lose weight is this: you need to find a way to eat fewer calories and still feel full and satisfied."
