Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe presented her interview with Prof. Jim Al-Khalili on his latest book, "Aliens: The World's Leading Scientists on the Search for Extraterrestrial Life"; as well as discussions on face-to-face interactions with non-human entities, and a high strangeness UFO encounter. In her two-segment conversation with Al-Khalili, he told her what he finds the most fascinating are the astrobiologists looking at exoplanets. "We might not yet see the life directly," he said, "but we might see the really clinching persuasive evidence that life does exist, just by looking at the chemistry of the atmospheres of exoplanets."
Prof. Al-Khalili thinks that when the James Webb telescope is launched in October 2018 that it will be a game changer on what we can see and learn about exoplanets having water, elements, and temperatures that are conducive to life as we know it. "I would say the odds are even 50/50 that in a year or two, we will have discovered life elsewhere — and that's pretty big stuff!" he enthused. For more see, see Linda's full report Part 1, Part 2.
US Army infantryman, Stephen Mann, detailed his encounter with a grey-type alien, when he was 20-years-old and stationed at Ft. Richardson in Alaska. The entity, which was partly invisible, suddenly appeared while he was napping at his bunk bed, and grabbed his genitals with a "small, thin, grey hand." The incident involved two-hours of missing time, and Linda noted similar cases where the alien appeared to be partially cloaked. She also spoke with Jerry Brooks of Acworth, Georgia who recalled an episode from his youth when he and his parents were driving in a car in Alabama and were suddenly confronted with something nearly 100 feet in diameter in the sky. The three got out of the car to watch the UFO. Jerry says there were odd "perfect" lights that pulsed and then immediately after "police-car-blue" lights flashed a few times. Jerry and his parents found themselves sitting in the car with at least an hour of missing time, not knowing how they got from the road into the car.
Dangers of the Western Diet
First hour guest, Dr. Renee Dufault, is a now-retired FDA investigator who took an early retirement because she was told by her superiors to stop months of investigation that revealed harmful levels of heavy metals being allowed into a variety of processed foods to help extend product shelf life - and extend profits. Western diets have changed over the years and not for the better, she pointed out. For instance, in 1970, the average American consumed 0.3 lbs of high fructose corn syrup in a year, but by 2014 that number had risen to 26.8 lbs. We can protect ourselves, and reduce the chance of getting various disorders and diseases by avoiding processed foods, and instead, choose to eat and prepare whole foods, and organic, when possible, she advised.
