Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johanssen make Audiences Obese

Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johanssen have acted together in many action movies together. However, the audiences that watch these flicks often snack so much during the viewing that they become obese in the end.

An experiment was conducted by Cornell University psychologists which determined how many extra calories audiences ate while watching stuff on the television screen. 

This could range from a sci-fi action thriller such as “The Island” in which Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johanssen starred together, or the same movie with the sound off. 

And there was a third choice and that was a quiet and unobtrusive interview that was held in polite and well-mannered settings. The viewers were given copious amounts of M&Ms, cookies, grapes and carrots. 

They were allowed to eat as much of the munchkins as they wanted to eat. The results were surprising. The distracting action flick with its loud rude noises and car chase scenes (not to mention extreme violence) caused the most caloric consumption. 

The same film on silent mode caused a reduction in caloric intake yet it was close but no cigar. The least amount of nutriments were ingested during the laidback interview. 

Maybe the results of this experiment offer us some lessons on sensation-seeking behavior. The presence of chaos and lack of peace of mind may be the reasons behind the obesity crisis. 

Although it has been surmised that the rise in levels of the hormone known as adrenaline could burn fat, in fact the visual disarray caused by viewing action flicks and disturbing material that contains nothing more than gratuitous sex and mindless violence can only disrupt your endocrine glands. 

It’s like the comparison between heavy metal, rock and pop on the one hand and classical music on the other. There is just no comparison. While the former category causes stress and tension and is not conducive to health, the latter is a tonic both mentally and physically. 

 

As the viewership shifts from a diet of beautiful sights to one of ugly and shocking images, the number of maladies and diseases contracted by these victims of mass hypnosis (due to the mental pollution) will only increase.
