    “I have ‘happy pages’ on standby on various apps on my phone. Whenever I see a news article/post that’s hard to read, I switch over to my favorite documentary, or #corgibutts, or makeup tutorials on YouTube. They’re always just enough to block out the tidal wave of shit that’s going on in the world.”

    Sexual Assault Survivors, How Are You Practicing Self-Care Right Now?

    October 16th, 2017 by Our Webmaster

    By Anna Borges

    If you've been sexually assaulted or harassed, the current news cycle can be really hard on your mental health.

    With so many stories about sexual harassment and assault in the news, looking after your mental health is particularly important.

    The hashtag, inspired by a tweet by Alyssa Milano, calls on people to share if they’ve ever been sexually assaulted or harassed, whether by replying “me too” or sharing their experiences in more detail.

    If you’ve been sexually assaulted or harassed, the current news cycle can be really hard on your mental health.

    Having your social media flooded by stories of sexual assault and harassment can be upsetting, or even triggering for those who now have PTSD as a result of their trauma.

    This Company Is Trying To Disrupt The Braces Industry And Dentists Are Fighting Back

    October 16th, 2017 by Our Webmaster

    By Nidhi Subbaraman

    Dentists are waging a war against SmileDirectClub, a startup whose mail-order product promises to straighten teeth at a fraction of the cost of braces, without the hassle of a dentist’s office.

    The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), representing 18,000 dental professionals, has lodged complaints with dental boards and attorneys general in 36 states, alleging that SmileDirect’s service — which allows customers to skip in-person doctor visits and X-rays — is “illegal and creates medical risks.”

    At least three state dental boards — in Alaska, California, and West Virginia — have opened investigations into the company, though none have yet been completed. In August, Alaska’s board voted to ask the state’s licensing division to send a cease-and-desist letter barring SmileDirect from selling there.

    “It became very clear to us that they were violating the law,” Kevin Dillard, general counsel at the AAO, told BuzzFeed News. “Our goal is to make sure that those states understand that there is a market participant here that we believe is violating their laws that exist to protect the public.”

    At the heart of the legal dispute is the company’s role in the braces business. The AAO argues that SmileDirectClub is doing medical work that many state laws reserve …read more

    Here’s Why Some People Feel Sick If They Read In The Car

    October 16th, 2017 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    If you've ever experienced motion sickness in a car, or on a plane or a boat, you know how miserable it can be.

    When in doubt, keep your eyes on the horizon.

    If you’ve ever experienced motion sickness in a car, or on a plane or a boat, you know how miserable it can be.

    One minute you’re enjoying a ferry ride or playing a phone game in the backseat of a car and the next minute you’re overwhelmed with nausea and dizziness. Motion sickness is no fun, especially when you’re on a long trip and can’t necessarily get off the thing that’s moving.

    17 Pictures That Will Make Anyone With Diabetes Say, “YUP!”

    October 14th, 2017 by Our Webmaster

    By Connor Dunlap

    Having diabetes means finding used test strips pretty much everywhere.

    Type 1 diabetes in a nut shell: needles, blood, more needles and more blood.

    Having diabetes means finding used test strips pretty much everywhere.

    Stray test strips are a byproduct of testing my blood sugar levels approximately six bajillion times a day, which I have to do to stay alive.

    And by everywhere…

    …I mean, EVERYWHERE.

    ...I mean, EVERYWHERE.

    But rogue test strips barely even register on the diabetic radar. We’re all too focused on the BLOOD and the NEEDLES to worry much about stray pieces of plastic.

    Connor Dunlap / BuzzFeed

    Honestly, having to constantly squeeze drops of blood from my finger-tips is a bigger priority.

    Hey guys. I’m Sam, I’m competitive and Type-A, and I’m about to put myself through a *BIG* fitness challenge.

    I’m already in decent shape — I’m a competitive swimmer who trains 5-6 times a week — but I want to mix things up, challenge myself mentally and physically, and see if I can also help myself in the water at the same time.

    Earlier this year, two of my coworkers made a video where they did 100 pushups a day for 30 days. Not one to back down from a challenge…I decided to try it out for myself.

    San Francisco Is Choking On A Thick Haze Of Smoke. These Are The Health Risks.

    October 13th, 2017 by Our Webmaster

    By Peter Aldhous

    Air quality across the United States at 1pm Pacific Time on Thursday. Green shows good air quality; yellow and red indicate significant pollution.

    Berkeley Earth / Via berkeleyearth.org

    Thursday morning in San Francisco, the air quality was as bad as in Beijing, China’s notoriously polluted capital. Since Bay Area residents woke on Monday to news that California’s wine country was ablaze, much of the region has been shrouded in smoke. Schools are keeping kids inside during recess. Some adults are wearing face masks as they walk or cycle to work.

    The problems with air quality in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose bear little comparison to the scenes of utter devastation in Sonoma and Napa counties to the north. But the pall of smoke that hangs over the region’s cities affects millions of people.

    The main danger from wildfire smoke is known as PM2.5 — particles of soot less than 2.5 micrometers across that can cause lung and heart disease. PM2.5 is bad for everyone, but particularly for people who already have conditions like asthma or emphysema, and for children whose lungs are still developing. Long-term studies by the University of Southern California’s Children’s Health Study have …read more

    Have you ever tried looking into a light (or the sun) to sneeze?

    Props to whoever named it ACHOO.

    Have you ever tried looking into a light (or the sun) to sneeze?

    Someone might have suggested it to you once after noticing that you were on the verge of sneezing, but couldn’t quiiiite get it out. Did it work? Did it make you wonder how on earth looking at light — y’know, with your eyes! — could possibly make you sneeze? If you’re like me and you never heard of this before, then chances are you thought this HAD TO BE a myth.

    Well guess what y’all, I’m here to tell you now that this is not BS. It’s legit. Go ahead, try it out and see if it works for you.
