A new survey by research firm Mintel reveals that 39% of people who regularly eat red meat ate less of it in 2013 than in 2012. Additionally, 25% of pork consumers said they ate less pork in 2013 than in 2012. The poll noted that these downward trends in meat consumption have been largely prompted by the health concerns.
“If only…” These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.
Here are ten choices that ultimately lead to this phrase of regret, and how to elude them:
1. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it. Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of…Continue

Genetically modified organisms are hiding throughout the U.S. food supply.

In my life I have killed many spiders. In the past, the usual thing I did without thinking was to find a kleenex box and smash the spider. But this time was different.
After explaining my pro-life philosophy to people, I could not justify simply kill an innocent spider just for being on the kitchen floor. I can't call it self-defense since the spider was not attacking me.…Continue

We still lack a complete understanding of the pineal gland — but that doesn’t stop us from speculating.
Located in nearly the direct center of the brain, the tiny pinecone-shaped pineal gland, which habitually secretes the wondrous neurohormone melatonin while we sleep at night, was once thought to be a vestigial leftover from a lower evolutionary state.
Indeed, according to recent research, we could be increasing our chances of…Continue
We are often guilty of believing that we are a picture of fine health as we have no real signs that anything untoward is going on inside our body. However, this does not have to be true as there are actually a number of indications that we tend to ignore that are actually telling us that something is not right. Failure to pay attention to them will of course tend to lead to things getting worse,…Continue

It’s easy to think of moments in our favorite music that are silent, but expressively powerful: that second before a classical pianist puts her hands on the keyboard; the stop taken by a rock band just before a song's climax. Competing lists vie to chronicle the best musical pauses of all…Continue

These three strangers are about to make a connection. That’s the power of music.
Three strangers on the street got together for an impromptu jam session and it was amazing. Music has the power to connect people and touch souls, this is the beauty of music in its simplest form. Sometimes I just don’t know :)…

Sometimes sleep professionals sound like a broken record, always telling patients to make sure they get enough sleep night after night. The reality is that it can be hard for many people to reach this goal each and every night. Worse, on the nights we decide to prioritize sleep, those precious hours of shut-eye can be harder to…Continue

The cat in this video is hands down the most patient cat in the world. This cat has an adorable yet annoying tiny puppy “viciously” attacking his ear, climbing on him, and relentlessly demanding attention, yet the cat takes it all in stride. Honestly, is there anyone better fit for the title? I think not.

I've been vegetarian a little over a year. I want to enjoy fake meats, tofu, and seitan but am having trouble with that. It all pretty much tastes awful. I went to a vegan restaurant and had their tofu bacon and it was AMAZING! Does anyone have any seitan or tofu recipes? I haven't had much luck and have no experience cooking with either but would like to experiment.
I could watch him go round and round ALL DAY! I wonder how long it took until he actually got tired and fell asleep. I remember when my dog was just a puppy, she would do the same thing. Especially after taking a bath, she would run around in circles and rub up against everything. What a riot!
Does your dog…Continue
