by 2016-11-28
science has never moved at such a rapid rate as it is now and as each discovery brings with it countless more developments, it stands to reason that our scientific understanding has ‘snowballed’ with time. so great are many of these developments in fact, and so much have they impacted our daily lifestyles, that it’s sometimes almost impossible to imagine a world before many of these breakthroughs. this is particularly true of medical discoveries, and while we might complain......

How to Make Your Nose Look Smaller Without Surgery

by 2016-11-28
i've always had something of a big nose. i'm no barry manilow, but unfortunately my nose is somewhat 'wide' and my big grin only serves to increase its width meaning that it takes up a bit more of my face than i would ideally like a lot of the time. when i was younger this used to upset me more than it does now (because i have a self-esteem these days that borders on full-blown narcissism) and it didn't help that my mates came up with the helpful nickname 'schnout' for me. what are friends......

Refined Vs. Natural Sugars

by 2016-11-28
no one thinks of sugar as being healthy. we all know that it’s the inclusion of sugar that makes something a carb, and that it’s this energy that gets stored as fat when we don’t use it all. however just because you shouldn’t eat sugar by the spoonful doesn’t mean it doesn’t still have its advantages – and actually it is necessary and important for us to get this energy in some form. at the same time not all sugar was born equal and some kinds are ......

Health Benefits of Red Wine

we’ve all heard it said that red wine is good for us, and that a ‘glass a day keeps the doctor away’, but the more cynical among us may also have been a little bit dubious of this claim. while it might sound very nice, and certainly be something we want to believe, we also know that alcohol isn’t particularly good for us and particularly for our livers, and as such we might suspect that all of this could be a little bit too good to be true. however as you’re h......

The 10 Most Common Genetic Diseases

by 2016-11-28
a genetic disease is a terrible thing – an illness that is written into your very biological code that it can be very difficult to avoid or sometimes even impossible. for parents this can mean giving birth to someone who will never be ‘well’ in the traditional sense, and no amount of exercise or healthy living can help that. the fortunate news is that genetic disorders are relatively uncommon, but that said they are still a real danger and some are certainly more common t......

The Importance of Manners – How Saying Please Can Get You What You Want

by 2016-11-28
among the top things that parents will generally try to instil in their children is a good sense of manners. while it's still perfectly possible to be successful and popular without good manners, and while you're not going to get into any trouble with the law for omitting a please or thank you; manners are still somewhat a source of pride for parents and one of the ways that we judge how effective they've been in raising their sprogs. but manners aren't just the domain of young children &n......
