Right to a Fair Trial: The Painted Bird by Tom Muirhead & Alan Aitken

It is contended that no litigant involved in civil proceedings or an accused in a criminal trial has ever had a ‘fair hearing’ in Scotland.

Name of speaker

Mike McInnes

Title of Talk

Future Sleep: The Nocturnal Fast, Cerebral Energy and the Honey/Insulin/Melatonin (HYMN) Cycle.

Bullet points you would like to cover:

  • In the west it is customary to retire to bed with a depleted liver and activate, not sleep and recovery physiology, rather chronic nocturnal metabolic stress, the only way the brain may partition glucose in favour of cerebral provision.
  • This cultural practice results from the universal myth, put about by diet gurus and not challenged by the health professions, that it is unhealthy to ‘eat late’.
  • Chronic nocturnal metabolic stress rapidly increases risk of metabolic syndrome (diabetes/obesity/heart disease) and alzheimer’s disease.
