What's Happening Now: The Top Must Reads This Week in Health + Wellness
Every week, The S-Life Mag will make sure you’re in the know about the latest scientific studies and current events pertaining to health, wellness, nutrition and more. This is the stuff you need to know for your body, mind and soul!
~ You know that letdown feeling you have when your guests leave? Or the way you get totally tongue-tied when you find yourself in an elevator with your boss? It turns out there are words (in other languages) for all of those highly nuanced emotions.
~ Good thing it’s iced coffee season.
~We love walnuts for many reasons, not least of all because they look like cute little brains…and that’s fitting, because eating them is smart! A new study suggests one or two small weekly servings of walnuts helps you age gracefully (and healthily).
~ A good argument for an earlier bedtime: going to sleep too late is linked to lower veggie consumption. (The antidote? A fridge full of Saraka!)
~ The nose knows — scientists believe dogs can detect low blood sugar in diabetics by picking up on the scent of a chemical called isoprene emited before a hypoglycemic attack.
~ What happened when Pepsi tried removing the artificial sweetener aspartame from their diet variety? Customers freaked. So now it’s out with the sucralose, in with the fake stuff once again.
~ Air pollution isn’t just bad for Mother Earth — it’s bad for her inhabitants (i.e. us) too.
~ WE made chocolate healthier by adding probiotics. These scientists made chocolate healthier (well, lower in fat) by zapping it with electricity.
