Plastics in our bodyOnly fairly recently we have become aware of the dangers of plastics in our environment.
For a long time we thought these plastics would not be of any concern to us. However, invariably, most plastics end up somewhere in the environment: they sit at the bottom of the sea, mix into beach sand, and blow in the wind. They’re also inside us.
It's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39 to 52 thousand microplastic particles a year. With added estimates of how much microplastic might be inhaled, that number is more than 74 thousand.
People who drink only bottled water ingest an additional 90 thousand particles.
When researchers from Johns Hopkins looked at the impact of eating seafood contaminated with microplastics, they too found the accumulated plastic could damage the immune system and upset a gut's balance.
Scientists are scrambling to understand the dose at which microplastics start to have noticeable health effects. Like air pollution or harmful construction materials, those who have more exposure or pre-existing conditions may be less able to tolerate plastic.
How to cure a hangover
Quite a lot of people wake up the day after a major holiday like the recent King's Day or Liberation Day with a hangover due to imbibing too much alcohol.
The most widespread assumption is that a hangover is caused by not drinking enough water, and therefore those that aren't drunk enough to remember what to do, will drink a few litres of water before going to bed or at least will try to do so the next morning. Other very popular cures are to drink a lot of coffee and eat a hearty egg-based breakfast. Another advice was heard on the radio from a Dutch food blogger who exclaimed how eating toast with honey is a definite cure for hangovers. Around the world a myriad of folk remedies exist for this ancient 'disease'.
Do these remedies actually work and are there some others you didn't think of?
Before we dive into that, let's first discuss the hangover itself.
The lost art of flirting
In the past weeks, no years one after another scandal about sexual abuse came out in the open, where the pattern was very clear: one person being far more powerful than the other, who didn't speak up until even decades later, about the abuse out of respect or fear.
Yet, despite all the outrage over sexual intimidation, we almost seem to forget about desirable intimacies and the sheer fun of flirting.
Fortunately, in Europe flirting is still considered to be an innocent game , but in the USA male students have started to stop approaching female students for fear of being accused of sexual intimidation.
In a time, when non-verbal communication is diminishing and both sexes seem to be fighting each other, it made sense to focus on a more pleasant aspect of communication: the flirt. All over the world, both men and women seem to forget how to flirt. In a rapidly changing society, where most communication happens over a smart phone, people literally have less "eye" contact and forget the (mostly) non-verbal language of flirting.
That is why we need a course in flirting, Flirting 101 so to say. Fortunately I didn't need to write it myself, there is one already on the internet. Not a nonsensical girly guide, but one based on real scientific facts.
We can't share the entire content here, so I will limit myself to sharing the introduction and adding an explanation as to why we don't always recognize flirting behaviour or think someone is flirting when they aren't but were just paying you (or your loved one) a compliment.
