Sloth Eats Carrots! So CUTE!!

Filed under: Cuteness!FunnySloth

Omg, this is so adoraballz!!

Sloths are so freakin' cute it's ridiculous!

Especially this sloth trying to eat carrots.

He refuses to turn around and grab a carrot, simply laying on his back, reaching behind him until he can find a slice of veggie!

His life would be so much better if he just turned around and grabbed a carrot, but he's sooooo lazy!

But it's okay because it makes for a real moment of cuteness!

Check out the video (above) to see an adorbz sloth eating some carrots!

British Scientists Create Super Broccoli!

Filed under: FoodHealth

Super Brocoli

Heart disease beware! Super broccoli is here!

A team of British scientists have developed a new breed of broccoli that contains two to three times the normal amount of glucoraphanin, which is a nutrient believed to help ward off heart disease.

The nutrient is only found in broccoli in significant amounts and works by breaking fat down in the body.

Richard Mithen, the man who lead the team of scientists responsible for the broccoli breakthrough, said:

"Vegetables are a medicine cabinet already. When you eat this broccoli … you get a reduction in cholesterol in your blood stream."

The new product, called Beneforte super broccoli, has been on a few shelves in California and Texas over the last year, but has recently been unveiled in London as well.

The rest of America can look forward to tasting the "slightly sweeter" (because of less sulphur) and more nutritious broccoli later this fall.
