My idea of the perfect Ikea shopping trip involves spending an hour (or two) roaming the marketplace, stocking up on home essentials, grabbing batteries right before checking out and then — the finale — grabbing both a soft serve ice cream cone and a veggie dog on my way out. It’s truly a dream and
People with mental illness swing in and out of doctors offices every day, but their ailments often go unnoticed and untreated. Bogged down by busy work schedules, general physicians don’t have the time—or the expertise—to dig into mental illness. The result is a large population of sick, yet untreated, people in America. Now, a new
A new drug shows potential to halt cancer cells’ growth by stunting the cells’ biological clock. The findings from scientists at the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience and Nagoya University’s Institute of Transformative BioMolecules (ITbM) advance a burgeoning area of research: turning the body’s circadian rhythms against cancer. Their study, conducted on human kidney
When most of us reflect on Valentine’s Day, we think of roses, balloons and candy hearts. You know, big, red boxes full of caramels, nougats and chocolate-covered nuts. Yet the most popular Valentine’s Day treat is actually a small pressed candy: Sweethearts Conversation Hearts. But if these happen to be your go-to, brace yourself because
There are certain movies and televised entertainments that just beg for a big platter of snacks: summer blockbusters, rom-coms, sporting events. But horror movies have never been our choice for snacking — do you really want to be snacking on guacamole while watching a zombie eat someone’s brains? Well, one restaurant is hoping this aversion
It’s no secret it’s flu season right now. We’ve been warned to get our flu shots for months, know to wash our hands constantly and drink plenty of fluids if we start feeling sick. But it’s not just the flu we need to be on the lookout for right now; there’s another condition out there
New year, same immature behavior on Instagram. Dozens of commenters rang in 2019 with some good, old-fashioned (and wildly inappropriate) mom shaming after actress Hilary Duff posted a photo of herself eating while breastfeeding her two-month-old daughter, Banks. Were they angry that Duff could drop pieces of crispy Brussels sprout leaves on her baby girl?
I have fair skin, a tendency to burn, light eyes and hair along with a family history of melanoma. That puts me in the “high risk” group for skin cancer. But, I am one of the one in three Australians who has never had a skin check. Check your skin or get it checked this
Kristen Bell dressed up as Elsa from Frozen for Halloween — for the second year in a row. Yep, we know she voiced Anna in the film, not Elsa. What gives? Well, it turns out one of her daughters demanded Bell be Elsa again "to match her." Bell posted a hilarious shot of herself on
Olivia Wilde’s children — her 4-year-old Otis and 1-year-old Daisy — are adorable. As children (and well-behaved children, no less), you wouldn’t necessarily think to call them "self-involved," but Wilde has described them that way herself. She’s not just being harsh, however. She has good reason for being brutally honest. The actor told InStyle just how
THURSDAY, Oct. 25, 2018 (American Heart Association) — You can get your hands on pumpkin seeds on about any store’s snack aisle, but your healthiest option may be the old-fashioned way: scooping them out of the stringy guts of that jack-o’-lantern you’re carving. That’s because store-bought pumpkin seeds — ever more popular because they’re easy
If you’re struggling to lower your blood pressure, it likely has to do with two things: Diet and exercise. It’s important to get daily exercise. Go for a walk every day to get your blood pumping and improve your heart health. The foods you eat also have a major impact on heart health. If you’re
So you’ve just had some much needed me time with your favorite sex toy, and you’re feeling super relaxed. The last thing you want to do right now is haul yourself off the bed and head to the bathroom sink to scrub your vibrator clean. You know you have to wash it, of course, to
It seems that Starbucks is always brewing up something new, and today is no different. To commemorate the opening of their very first location in Milan, Italy, Starbucks is releasing an Italian-inspired drink, the Cordusio. According to the Seattle-based coffee retailer, the Cordusio — named after the Piazza Cordusio, where the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery
A 71-year-old man needed his forearm amputated after eating raw seafood, according to a case report in a recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The unnamed man went to a South Korea emergency room after having a fever for two days and “excruciating pain” in his left hand. The cause? A dark
Mom of two Busy Philipps is not here for men body-shaming her (or anyone) on Instagram. The actor recently shared a gym selfie on apothekegenerika.de Instagram for #TheAwesomeChallenge, a program that donates clothes to kids in need every time the hashtag is used. But of course, some internet troll had to take a post about charity
Pin It happens every. Single. Year. As soon as kids are back in school and day care after summer break, the sniffles start. At first, they sound innocent enough; then, you hear a little cough or two. And finally, just as the weather starts to turn really chilly, everyone in your household is showing full-on flu symptoms.
Rosé ice cream, rosé hard cider, rosé in a can: This summer has been all about the rosé. (Hell, even Olive Garden launched their own rosé this summer!) And while we may all have autumn on the brain already, Jose Cuervo isn’t about to let margarita season die off completely just yet. Jose Cuervo just
“Gilding the lily” is somewhat particular to American gastronomy. Paris was not the home of the first burger topped with foie gras, nor was Rome where milkshakes first came garnished with slices of cake. It was under these spacious skies, these amber waves of grain, that the Heart Attack Grill first came roaring to life.
Being a parent of twins is like running a marathon you didn’t train for. Suddenly, two very cute, very small beings depend on you — at the same time. You may feel like nobody knows your struggle. But when you meet other twin parents, you form an instant connection because you recognize each other’s invisible
