New Tostitos’ Bags Have a Built-In Breathalyzer

If your friends aren’t responsible enough to tell you that you’re too drunk to drive, maybe your tortilla chips will be?

Tostitos is rolling out a new bag right now that has a built in BREATHALYZER. You breathe into the sensor on the bag, and if it detects any alcohol on your breath, the design on the bag turns red and flashes a message that says “Don’t drink and drive.”

The bags are only going to be around for a limited time, but you should definitely try to get one for your Super Bowl party.

Scientists Have Figured Out Why Drinking Coffee Makes You Live Longer

Scientists Have Figured Out Why Drinking Coffee Makes You Live Longer

There have been several studies that have found people who drink coffee live longer . . . but none of them quite figured out WHY.

Some scientists at Stanford University just wrapped up a study on the link between coffee and longevity . . . and they think they’ve finally got the answer.

As we get older, one of the biggest things that affects our health is inflammation. It brings on the effects of aging, it hurts our overall health, and it can lead to things like Alzheimer’s, heart attacks, and hypertension.

But the chemical compounds in coffee help protect against inflammation . . . so if you drink a few cups a day, it really can make a huge difference in your health, especially as you get older.

If drinking one cup of coffee every day is good for your health, then the 15 cups I drink should turn me into Superman . . . right?

A new study out of England found yet ANOTHER big health benefit of coffee.

Researchers found that people who drink even ONE cup of coffee a day are 20% less likely to die after a heart attack than people who don’t ever drink it.

And the more coffee you drink, the better your chances are of surviving.

This is just the latest study that found coffee has serious health benefits. Other recent ones have found it helps fight liver cancer, heart disease, and Parkinson’s.
