Some people carry a hair tie wherever they go by wearing on their wrist like a bracelet. While it is extremely rare, a tight hair tie around the wrist could cause an infection like it did for Audree Kopp in Philadelphia. This infection didn't respond well to antibiotics so it led to surgery. If she had let it go on longer it could have led to sepsis, when an infection gets into the bloodstream.

While this kind of infection is unlikely, the result is alarming enough to make someone with long hair think twice about how they want to carry their hair ties with them.

We're all aware that McDonald's doesn't dish out the most healthy foods. Would you believe then that an Iowa man actually lost weight eating only from Micky D's for 90 days? Science teacher John Cisna lost 37 pounds after the three month experiment that included a daily regiment of recommended calorie intake and exercise. His conclusion: poor decisions make us fat; not McDonald's.

Here is an amazing gif of two sets of lungs being filled with air. One pair was that of a smoker and the other was that of a non-smoker. Can you guess which is which?

Microsoft is developing a bra designed to help women with both their emotional and physical health. The sensors inside it detect heart rate, sweat, and stress levels which indicate the potential for over-eating. The bra can also connect to your smart phone to send you a "mood-triggered eating alert" as well as give you suggestions on how to redirect your brain to do something else.


The idea of a 'smart undergarment' has been marketed to women because of research that says they are most likely to emotionally over-eat. The current prototypes are not perfect; the battery life only lasts 3 to 4 hours.
