Funny how they're preaching about Human Rights, still there are at least 40,000 slaves in the US today
It is a nation built on the abolition of slavery, but there are at least 40,000 slaves in the US today.

A major U.S. government study on rats has found a link between cellphones and cancer, an explosive finding in the long-running debate about whether mobile phones cause health effects.

Most wearable devices do not produce a valid measure of total energy expenditure
Earlier this week Alex Hutchinson reported on a new study examining the accuracy of activity monitors (Fitbits, Jawbone, etc) for measuring energy expenditure. Not surprisingly, the results suggest that none of the activity monitors were 100% accurate. The authors compared 12 different activity monitors to 2 different gold standards (a metabolic chamber, and doubly labelled water), and both techniques found that most monitors either over or und...

Drinking water before each meal may help you lose weight

A study published in the journal Obesity suggests the recommendation may be quite sound.

In the study, Dennis and colleagues randomized overweight/obese older men and women to either a hypocaloric diet alone or a hypocaloric diet plus increased water consumption for a duration of 12 weeks.

The hypocaloric diet consisted of 1200 calories for the women and 1500 calories for the men. Those in the diet + increased water group were required to consume 500 ml of water (2 cups) 30 minutes prior to each of the 3 large daily meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner).

While participants in both groups lost a significant amount of weight (5-8kg) in response to the diet, those who also consumed more water before their meals lost an additional 2 kg in comparison to the diet only group.

I have been watching the 3rd season of #HouseOfCards . Apart, from a fairly good season, I noticed that more than once Jerusalem has been used as reference to the illegal state of Israel, as if it was its capital city.
So, After trying to falsify history, Hollywood is now trying to falsify geography... Interesting! I wonder what is next.
