Have you ever wondered about what happens to those leftover bars of soap and barely used bottles of shampoo and conditioner after you leave a hotel?Shawn Seipler was working as a traveling salesman in 2008 and wondered exactly that while staying at a hotel in Minneapolis. Taking it one step further than most would, Seipler called down to the front desk to inquire about the fate of the products. He was told that they’re simply thrown away. Considering that there were 5 million hotel rooms in the United States alone as of 2015, that was a lot of perfectly good product hitting landfills.In addition to the tremendous amount of waste, the tossing of barely used soap and shampoo becomes almost heartbreaking when coupled with the fact that 5,500 children around the world die each year from diseases like pneumonia, cholera, and dysentery that can be reduced by almost 65% just by washing hands with a bar of soap.(Like what you're reading?

FEV1, or forced expiratory volume, is a measurement taken from a pulmonary function test. It calculates the amount of air that a person can force out of their lungs in 1 second. Working out a person's FEV1 value can help in the diagnosis of a chronic lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). FEV1 and other measurements also allow doctors to understand how severe the disease is, and track its progression over time. This article explains the role of FEV1 values in the staging, diagnosis, and management of COPD. COPD is a term used to describe certain medical conditions that affect the breathing, such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It can involve inflammation and mucus in the airways or damage to the lungs, both of which lead to breathing difficulties. People already diagnosed with COPD, or those suspected of having COPD or a related condition should undergo a pulmonary function test to determine their FEV1 value. A pulmonary function test is also called a … [Read more...] about What is the link between FEV1 and COPD?
The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland that lies in the front of the throat. The hormones produced by the thyroid have an impact on nearly every single tissue and organ in the body. Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her periods stop, and she is no longer able to have children. When people talk about menopause symptoms, they often refer to symptoms associated with perimenopause, the time of transition to menopause. When the thyroid gland produces too much or too little thyroid hormone, it can cause many different symptoms, some of which are very similar to the symptoms experienced by a woman in or entering menopause. In this article, we look at the link between these two conditions, including how one might affect the other, and what the outlook is. Thyroid problems are significantly more common in women, especially when they are of childbearing age. This may be because of the relationship between thyroid function and estrogen, the primary sex hormone of women. A … [Read more...] about Is there a link between menopause and an underactive thyroid?
The unbreakable bond between man and dog is depicted in the poignant documentary, War Dog: A Soldier’s Best Friend, which premieres tonight on HBO.Executive produced by Channing Tatum, the documentary explores the intimate relationships between U.S. Special Operations soldiers and their K9s, who serve together as human-animal teams in combat.“It’s been fascinating to see this side of the military,” Tatum told Men's Health at the Los Angeles premiere. “These soldiers and their dogs are super-human...it’s very, very special to see that. The connection they have is greater than what we can ever capture in this film.”The film tells the story of how the U.S. military trains and deploys multi-purpose dogs to find and disarm enemies, while also providing emotional support to troops in their darkest hours. Working with their dogs pushed the soldiers to their limits, both emotionally and physically, noted Tatum.“People may have a point of view of … [Read more...] about Channing Tatum Made a Movie About the Bond Between Soldiers and Their Dogs
12. Men Burn Calories Faster Than Women Do. This is most likely due to the fact that men generally have more muscle, which requires more calories to burn throughout the day. 13. Male And Female Bones Are Different. Women tend to have wider hips, broader facial bones, smaller chins and a longer torso in ratio to their legs, most likely due to the fact that women must have more room to grow a fetus. 14. Women Have More Erogenous Zones Than Men. The female body is susceptible to far more sexual stimulation due to the larger erogenous zones through their body. It might be wise for men to learn where they all are. resources http://steadyhealth.com/articles/difference-between-male-and-female-structures-mental-and-physical https://livescience.com/33513-men-vs-women-our-physical-differences-explained.html … [Read more...] about Differences Between Male And Female Vital Organs

Why do male babies generally have poorer health outcomes than female babies? Researchers from the University of Adelaide in Australia investigate. They publish their findings in the journal Molecular Human Reproduction. Previous research has shown that boy babies grow faster in the womb, having a greater body length and weight than girl babies at birth. Some researchers have suggested this shows that the male placenta functions more efficiently. However, there seems to be a trade-off, as boy babies are consequently left with less reserve placental capacity to draw upon than girls in the event of adverse health conditions. As a result, male babies are more at risk of undernutrition, which restricts growth and lowers birthweight, and puts them at greater risk of cardiovascular disease in adulthood. In the new study, the researchers wanted to investigate whether there was a difference between boys and girls in the type and pattern of genes expressed. Senior author of the paper … [Read more...] about Placenta genes ‘underpin health differences between girl and boy babies’
Everything that I’ve learned in life has come as an answer to a question I’ve had. It hasn’t mattered whether the question was asked in silence within me, or asked out loud in a curious sense in front of others. The answers have always turned up and made themselves available to me. Such an answer is the reason for how I know that it must be the same for other people. We do all receive the answer to any question we have, in one way or another. It always comes, directly to the person who asked the question. We have traditionally turned to people that are really good listeners, to hear what their answers are to our questions, because we trust their ability to hear the answers better than our own ability. I would suggest to start trying out your own capability to pick up those answers, rather than relying on the answers to go through someone else first. It’s totally worth it, if you ask me. Whenever I meet others, I know within that we are from the same place, … [Read more...] about The Direct Route between Question and Answer in Life
