Here’s Why #Dogs Are #Friendly

DogsNo surprise, a study has found that dogs are more sociable than wolves. It turns-out that this social nature is linked to genetic variants found in dogs that wolves do not possess. Tens of thousands of years ago, dogs were chosen to be domesticated, rather than wolves. So it seems the genetic predisposition as “house pets” was there all along for dogs. Dogs are social creatures and they are like wolves, in that regard. However wolves and dogs differ in their problem-solving. Wolves are stronger problem solvers, whereas dogs have become more lackadaisical when it comes to survival. In fact, they were the scoundrels who crept into sites and stole food from the people. Nobody wants to buddy-up with savages like that anyway. Maybe that’s why dogs have evolved as man’s best friend, no wolves.

#Dirt is Good for #Kids #Immunity

KidEatingDirtAt the risk of seeming blasphemous and illiterate, have you ever heard the saying “God made dirt so dirt don’t hurt”? Moving away from the theological POV for agnostics and we’ve got biological support for the notion. Studies say that we require a certain amount of exposure to germs and antigens so that we can fully develop a robust immune system. Here’s an interesting tidbit for parents of infants – when your baby’s pacifier hits the floor, lick it! Parents saliva does a better job of building their baby’s immune system than water. If you’re an adult with a full-blow immune system but still looking for a boost in immunity when around the little carrier monkeys, try adding Emergen C to your routine. If the free offer isn’t going to cut it for your needs, shop Amazon till your heart’s content.

The Inequity of #Dementia Among #Races

DementiaA study has found that people of African-American descent are more prone than white people to developing dementia. Researchers believe this is due to poverty, disadvantages, and stressful events in life. African-Americans are twice as likely to develop dementia more so than white people and a sliver of it can be due to their likelihood to have high blood pressure and diabetes. Both these conditions are known to exacerbate cognitive decline. However little or big it may be, it’s empowering to think that the root cause of stress for everybody is the basis of expectations. Be the best version of yourself and society can eat worms if it has a problem with it. You can control your stress thermostat This isn’t the be-all/end-all answer to reducing stress but WebMD seems to tout these techniques heavily. Everybody can use a little less stress in their life. Don’t you agree?

#Google Plans to #Sterilize Millions

debugvanClickbait. This story sounds nefarious but it’s actually an exciting thing for mosquito population control. Verily,, the life science arm of Google (Alphabet) plans to release millions of male mosquitoes into the world in Fresno, California. It’s being done with vans labeled “Debug Fresno”. No ice cream or puppies, here. These vans do have screened windows – so it’s not the ultra creepy window-less van approach. Thanks for the heads-up, Google. The name of this roll out is “Project Debug”. These male mosquitoes have been infected with a bacteria that renders female eggs unable to produce more mosquitoes. In a very intentional sense, this is population control for mosquitoes that carry disease such as Zika, West Nile, and other life-altering conditions. Is this going to make things more uncomfortable for people prone to mosquito bites? Absolutely not. Male mosquitoes are not the biters – females are. Looks like Google is making another contribution to society in a non-virtual way. If you don’t already, you need to grab yourself a few shares.

This #MacandCheese Contains #Plastic

MacandCheeseFor those of you who love quick mac and cheese when you’re hankering for comfort food, brace yourself. Toxic industrial chemicals that can alter hormones were found in the mac and cheese powders tested. Of course, your homemade recipe doesn’t contain these toxic powders said to shift normal biological functioning. These chemicals have been used since the 50s to soften plastics. Why on earth are they found in mac and cheese powders? One spokesperson said that the FDA does not allow plastics to be added to food unless there’s certainty it’s not harmful. Good deflection, guy. If you’re truly that concerned that your mac and cheese habit threatens the well-being of your temple, try this recipe on for size. It’s said to be the BEST mac and cheese ever — especially since it doesn’t contain any plasticiserz.

#DimplePiercing Leads to #Circumcision #PSA

DimpleBabyThis was last weeks ‘news’ but it’s still in the back of my mind. Clickbate is one thing to garnish views on social media platforms. Smoke and mirrors is an old school approach used, too. After posting a picture of her baby’s dimple piercing, this mother received many responses. One response included a death threat for her picture while another response said they’d be calling child protective services. At the tail-end of this may-lay *mayday, the proud mother made a comparison to circumcision and claimed what she chooses to do with her child until the age of 18) is her decision. Good listener. I can see this will lead to great communication between the two of you in years to come. IMHO the mother could’ve ignored the threats since it was a nonissue. But making the statement of I do what I want ”till she’s 18″ makes it seem like a desperate reaction from South Park.

Want to #Live Longer? Drink #FREECoffee

CoffeeThe perks of coffee extend beyond focus, pep, and better mood. If you’re a morning person, carry on but people who need a cup or 2 to get started in the AM, I’m talking to you. So coffee is shown to help reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and possibly cancer. The extension of life benefits are not just caffeine-related. It works just the same for decaf drinkers, too. Anytime a headline claims that coffee can improve and/or extend life, even if it’s bogus – I want to read it.  Hopefully this headline makes your Friday commute that much better while you nurse your grande whatever floats your morning tug. So yes, coffee does make you richer because it gives you more time on Earth, which is a commodity you cannot buy anywhere.

How #Bad Do You Need That #Tan?

SunSkinPeople who believed that a base-tan was the only job in life are now paying for it. Sunderella, your carriage is turning into a pumpkin. Plastic surgery can fix a wrinkly face but it cannot repair irreparable damage caused to your DNA. That’s burned into your soul.  It’s arguable that people look a little healthier with a sun-kissed glow but slathering on the baby oil to intensify the sun is slow suicide. That healthy glow today may poof into liver spots, wrinkles, and cancer in the days ahead. The anatomy of a tan is said to be healthy by some experts and unhealthy by others. When the sun penetrates our skin too deeply, it can ‘squeeze’ our DNA and actually spur a mutation, which inevitably blazes the trail for the development of skin cancer. What’s the saving grace from sunlight squeezing our DNA? If you need to have your quality time with the sun, try SPF and boosting your collagen. It’ll help soften the blow from the sun pounding your skin.

Inhale #CocoLoko Before the #Ban

CocoLokoTimes are changing. Enter Coco Loko, a caco-based snuff powder containing ginkgo biloba, taurine, and guarine found in energy drinks. This powder’s said to put your brain into a focused stimulated state that lasts about an hour. There’s no research on it but Europe’s been sniffing the trend for a few minutes before a 29-year old entrepreneur introduced it to the US. Feel like flirting with a substance that may get banned in the near future? Here’s your chance. Live dangerously before it’s banned. If the law has anything to do with the future of chocolate snuff, Chuck Schumer wants this substance to be banned. Get it while it last on Amazon.

Heavens to Betsy #AntiBiotic Resistant #Gonorrhea

GonnorheaThere’s a recurrent infection of the headline having to do with antibiotic resistant gonorrhea. Nobody likes to hear there’s an antibiotic resistant strain of anything but when it takes the form of an STD that doesn’t have an effective early detection test…people get shook. Considering it’s the second most contracted STD, experts are hopeful that some of the antibiotics in the pipeline will be effective treatments. However, this form of gonorrhea is quick to evolve and this may ‘outsmart’ the release of new antibiotics. In the meantime, just keep in-mind if you’re not 100% they hold a clean bill of sexual health, break out a verse of the no-no square song. It’s a great way to kill the mood. Promise.
