Bigfoot, Homeopathy and Ghosts (Popular myths explained) – Truthloader

Last Saturday there were reports in the UK of strange banging noises coming from the night sky. Twitter users fanned the flames of
conspiracy and they seemed to land on the idea that it was an Aurora project test flight. However a large firework display in South London seems to be a more likely explanation. We don’t like to admit it but we’ve got fairly
primitive brains that are easily swayed by all manor of stimuli, with many experiments
proving we can be easily coerced into the most illogical and heinous decisions, from
killing lots of people, to listening to Enya, so here are the top 3 recently debunked myths. If people really want something to exist,
they will go to extraordinary lengths to convince themselves it does. Homonid Cryptid, otherwise known as a Sasquatch,
Yeti, Big Foot, Harry, Skunk Ape, whatever you want to call it, in July this year DNA
testing was done on 40 samples of hair from around the world purporting to be some form
of mystery upright standing ape thing, turns Turns out it was either a bear, dog, or just a hairy human. As in a guy in a monkey suit. It has actually
even led scientists to think they have found a new species of bear, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time. Homeopathy has long been the bane of many
in the medical profession, essentially taking a sample of the thing that causes an ailment,
and diluting it hundreds of times into water you get a cure, and while evidence for it’s
success lies entirely in the placebo effect or advantageous medical anomalies, it didn’t
stop a group of practictioners heading to Liberia to treat Ebola victims. To treat the illness homeopathically they
had to find a substance that would do what Ebola does to people, which is thin blood
vessels eventually causing a massive internal haemorrhage, allegedly they wanted to give ebola
victims various harmful substances including snake venom that in large enough quantities
would have this effect. Whilst their intentions were without doubt
honest and they wanted to help, the practice of alternative medicines including homeopathy
and traditional medicines linked to witch doctors, has been a large stumbling block
in containing and stopping the spread of ebola and various diseases throughout Africa. Scientific evidence points to no effect on
the body from homeopathic treatments as they are so diluted, but groups including Sense
about Science have said the promotion of such treatments is irresponsible and could put
lives at risk. If you think you have seen a ghost science
now has an explanation. Infra sound. This is sound that is registering below 20hz,
which is at the point humans stop being able to hear it, but the vibrations are still registered
by the body. In 1997 British scientist Vic Tandy thought he had seen a ghostly figure
in his laboratory, the next day he also noticed whilst workign on his fencing foil, that it
was vibrating in a specific part of the room. It turned out infrasound was coming from an
extractor, and registering at 18.98 hz, also the point at which the human eyeball begins
to resonate, creating an optical illusion that he thought was the ghost. Lots of research has been done into infra sound and its profound effect on humans, including specific frequencies for creatng certain moods and emotions, and many supposed ghost sightings now being attributed to something producing infra sound in the vicinity.
