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

Peaches are a great source of vitamins B3, beta-carotene, and folate. Peaches also contain a good amount of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. The lutein and zeaxanthin in peaches help promote healthy eyes while the boron found in peaches can help to stabilize hormones and reduce the craving for something sweet during times of PMS.

'Pink Slime' Controversy Changes How We Look At Our Food

Filed under: FoodHealth

Ever since the whole "pink slime" controversy reared its disgusting head, consumers have begun to question their food more and more.

People no longer just walk into the grocery store, grab a pound of ground beef and walk out.

They pay for it first. LOLz!

But before they pay for it, they find out where the animal was raised, what that animal was fed, if there were any hormones or steroids used.

Even with produce, consumers want to know what sort of pesticides were used if any and if it comes from a local farm or is shipped in from out of state.

The director of the Downtown Farmers Market in Des Moines, Iowa said:

"There was a time when people were pretty complacent about their food and just trusted someone else was going to take care of them. The dialogue has changed a lot. Now people want to know who is growing their food."

We think this is a great trend. Making healthier choices is always a good decision.

It's nice to know that something good is coming out of this whole "pink slime" fiasco.

Accountability is probably the biggest change, now farmers have to realize that people are going to want to know exactly what they're doing.

And if no one likes what they're doing (pesticides, hormones, steroids, etc.) then people will stop buying and that farmer will have to change their strategy or else risk losing the farm.

Gotta keep the consumers happy. The customer is always right!

Stress On The Rise For Children

Filed under: HealthTipsPerezcious ParentingEducationalSchool

This doesn't make us happy.

New research shows that American children are experiencing stress on a whole new level - and unfortunately, it's on the rise.

Suicides among adolescents have quadrupled since the 1950s and only 36% of 7th graders agreed with this statement: "I am happy with my life."

The worst part is that in just the past decade alone, medications to treat emotional disorders in children have shot up 68% for girls and 30% for boys.

Experts say that this is how stress works in a child brain:
