Do Eunuchs Live Longer??

Filed under: Super SeniorsHealth

This is a pretty weird subject, but a recent study found that Korean men who were castrated (had their balls chopped off), also known as eunuchs, lived on average 14 to 19 years longer than other men!

The study looked at a genealogy record from the 14th to early 20th centuries.

The researchers were able to find

Cocaine Eating

Dang! Not cool!

Overeating and cocaine abuse are BOTH controlled by the same neurons in the brain.

It's not what you think, though

U.S. Birth Rate Continues To Decline

Filed under: Baby BlabberFamily

birth rate decrease

According to new data from the Pew Research Center, the U.S. birth rate has continued to decline last year following a year of record high births in 2007.

The amount of babies being born has decreased by over 300,000 last year compared to the amount born in '07.

Experts are linking the downturn to the poor economy, which makes sense because, well, kids are expensive!

Not surprisingly,

Drunk Driving Incidents Down 30%

Filed under: Alcohol

Drunk Driving down

Yay!!! The roads are 30% safer to drive on!

Drunk driving incidents have decreased by that percentage in the last five years, while incidents in 2010 were at the LOWEST in nearly two decades!

That statistic is pretty reassuring, as long as people were telling the truth. The results are from a 2010 national telephone survey of 210,000 adults. Respondents were kept anonymous, but who likes to admit they got drunk and drove?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also

Smoking Decreases In The U.S.

Filed under: AddictionSmoking

Smoking down

And we couldn't be more thrilled!

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released Tuesday revealed 19.3% of adults admitted to smoking last year, which is down from 21% in 2005.

People who are smoking are smoking less too! The rate for smoking 30 or more cigarettes daily (Barf!) dropped to about 8% from nearly 13% in 2005.

The decline in smoking over the last 6 years means 3 million fewer adults were lighting up. Still, the government has their work cut out for them to meet their goal of no more than 12% of the U.S. population smoking by 2020.

Experts say if this rate of decline continues, adult smoking rates will reach 17% by 2020.

We'd love to see smoking decline to 12% nationwide by the end of the decade, but any kind of decrease in cigarette use still means millions of lives are being saved!

Normally, we're all about being different, but this is one healthy majority we want as many people as possible to join!

QuickFit Tip Of The Day

Pink 1

There is no such thing as spot reduction. No matter how many different abdominal exercises you do, you won’t see any definition until you lose the fat first. So instead of focusing your energy on a specific muscle group, focus on total body movements – done in a circuit training fashion – to burn the most calories and decrease overall body fat. To speed up the process of decreasing your body fat, combine this with cardio and proper nutrition.

Filed under: DrugsFamilyPregnant

Teen drug use up

And it's not the birth control they're on either!

An annual report known as America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being 2011, which is a compilation of statistics on children from numerous organizations, has found that teen birth rates have declined, but teen drug has increased.

For the second consecutive year in the United States, the adolescent birth rate dropped from 21.7 per 1,000 girls ages 15 to 17 (2008) to 20.1 per 1,000 (2009, preliminary data).

Yayyy!!!

Unfortunately, the report also found that eight-graders
