Does Your Dog Love You Back?

dogsIf anyone has ever accused you of being silly for adoring your dog, this new study should have them eating crow. Similar to the response mothers have for their babies, humans and dogs share the same feelings for one another provokes by oxytocin. Puppies and babies are innocent.

Why the Allergy Season May Be Brutal

allergiesThose of us who scraped, shoveled, and bundled-up our way through last winter are in for a biting allergy season. The cold temps delayed the trees from releasing pollen on time, much like the countless flights delayed this past winter. Now that tree pollens are taking flight simultaneously, hold onto your hats and tissues. Here’s a friendly guide to surviving the allergy season. Ever try using a tarp to clear the snow from your windshield? This KickStarter idea was funded and does essentially the same thing but it’s less ghetto than a tarp. Tweet me @AlliesVoice.

Caution for Diet Pills Containing BMPEA

058621.HE.0116.brush.3.LS. Various supplements.Scandalous headlines sell and couple that with the pervasive topic of diet pills and you’ve got a juicy bite. This is why BMPEA is making headlines. It’s a synthetically-made ingredient found in some diet supplements. It hasn’t been tested in humans but in laboratory animals it is shown to elevate heart rate and blood pressure. Keep in mind that dietary supplements do not need FDA approval to be sold. However, if an ingredient is found to be dangerous after it hits the shelves, it will be pulled from the market. On this news, Vitamin Shoppee has pulled products containing BMPEA. Human nature is compelled by curiosity. Do you think this warning will spike interest in obtaining the potentially dangerous stimulant BMPEA?

Online Breast Milk Sales

breastmilkFor some reason, breast milk is sold online. Fox news reported on the quality assurance of the product sold online as human breast milk. Researchers found that 10% of online breast milk contains cow’s milk and/or formula and it’s not verified for the absence of nicotine and caffeine. The nutritional content of online breast milk is not as wholesome as fresh breast milk and it’s not screened for illness that could potentially transmit to your baby. For the safest means to access human breast milk, please see the Human Milk Banking Association of North American (HMBANA). Isn’t breast milk considered a biological hazardous material? When did selling human fluids become legal in the US? Tweet me @AlliesVoice.
