-That’s right, I said it.

Surprisingly-enough, for the first time in decades, the US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has opined about coffee-consumption. -And it’s good news for caffeine-heads.

In spite of what “The Ultramind Solution”‘s Dr. Mark Hyman would tell you, the USDGAC says it’s safe to drink caffeinated-coffee.

-Up to 40 oz. of it a day, or…

We’ve blogged about contamination here and here before, but this development seems even more audacious than before.

And Look, we all know (at least here on HT) that selecting & taking supplements is a bit of a Bro-Science. -Or if we’re Really honest, it’s Amateur Human-Guniea-Pig Biochemistry Gambling.

Well, thanks to what we’re learning from NY AG, Eric Schneiderman, and Canada’s University of Guelph, the truth is a lot worse than that…

Coffee and Tea drinking have been linked [perhaps a little tenuously at times] to a whole host of health benefits, like this, this, and this.

Well now we can add another one to that growing list.

It also turns out that coffee may prevent some cancer; on your skin; -seriously.

In a study of 400,000+ participants over about 10 years, taking into account diet and some environmental factors, drinking up to 3 cups of coffee a day was associated with a 10% reduction in…

One of the problems facing doctors, non-dolphins, and mothers of children who drink the Red Bull and yell, “Hey Y’all, Watch This!” on YouTube, is controlling blood-flow or even stopping a full-on hemorrhage at a wound.

Well that just might be a thing of the past, as UCSB docs have come up with super-small, nanoscale particles that act just like human blood-clotting agents.
Since they didn’t want to completely re-invent the wheel, the little particles are almost an exact copy of Mother Nature’s invention…

Ever see those LED brushes on late-night TV that say they’ll grow your hair back? -Well, it turns out they work; -or at least the theory anyway.

Your mom ever pack an apple in your lunch, or tell you to eat your vegetables?

Well, it turns out mom just wanted you to be awesome, and those theories Bradley the teddy-bear whispered late at night about her being part of the international spinach cartel were purely-circumstantial.

In a University of Otago study, Tamlin Conner and her team studied the diets of a small group of young adults along with…

On the sillier end of things, another pheromone study has come out.

And it says, somehow mystifyingly, that people can more-or-less smell each-others’ political beliefs.

Whatever the influence is, it’s got to be extremely-subtle given all possible environmental variables (if this study is not completely BS, of-course).
