frozen anna gif billboard charts amazing 12 weeks

Twelve weeks and counting!!

From this point, it's safe to say Frozen isn't going anywhere for a very long time!

The worldwide hit Disney film reached its 12th week at number one (non-consecutively) on the Billboard charts, making it the eighth album to spend 12 weeks at number one.

In total, the icy flick is chilling on top of 2.5 million sold copies AND it became the first album to reach 2 million in sales in 2014!

It's a Frozen epidemic!

Chris Colfer & Sesame Street Team Up To Teach Children How To Prevent Bullying!

Way to go, Sesame Street, for tackling this issue!

Bullying has definitely been a huge epidemic that has been made public not too long ago and Sesame Street made a simple and easy message for children of all ages to understand.

Chris Colfer teamed up with the adorable fuzzy characters of the hit children's show and portrayed an adult helping Elmo stop his chicken friend from being bullied!

By spreading this message and teaching our children about bullying, we can hopefully prevent this terrible issue from happening to our own kids!

Take a look at the PSA (above)!!

We didn't think it was possible for Woody Harrelson to become any cooler than he already is — but we were wrong.

Oh wow were we wrong. LOLz!

Check it out (above): he's learning to surf while on break from the Hunger Games!!

Not only is this a great picture of him picking up one of the greatest sports ever invented, but are you seeing that girl's butt??

Shaq Weighs In On The Diabetes Crisis

Filed under: HealthBasketballObeseShaq

We just recently mentioned that the rate which Americans are being diagnosed with diabetes is climbing at an alarming rate.

Diabetes rates have gone up over 100% over the past 15 years in 18 states!!

As a 350-plus-pound man, someone like Shaq might seem like he's at risk.

But people forget that he's 7'1" and was a world-class athlete!

He only has 13% body fat! That's waaaay less than most people even half his weight!

Shaq wants to do what he can to help fight the obesity epidemic and stop the climbing rates of diabetes.

Check out the video (above) to hear Shaq's take on the diabetes crisis here in the U.S.!

Almost Half Of America Will Be OBESE By 2030?!?!?!?

Filed under: DietsLosing it!Science!

obese-woman-study-men-like-stress__opt.jpg

An anti-obesity group is claiming that by 2030, over half the people in 39 states will be obese.

Not just overweight… OBESE!

An example would be Mississippi, who currently has a 35% obesity rate. They believe that by 2030, 67% of Mississippi's population will be obese.

These crazy projections were released by Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, two organizations who try to raise awareness of the obesity epidemic.

We feel like these numbers might be a little inflated to strike fear into the hearts of the population.

They believe that by 2030, medical costs to treat obesity related diseases will jump from $18 billion a year (the current figure) to $66 billion a year!

That's crazy!

We really hope that's not true but unless something is done about the average American's diet, we might actually hit those numbers!

Be healthy, people!
