People Are Eating Oranges in the Shower to Avoid the Mess?

People Are Eating Oranges in the Shower to Avoid the Mess?

There’s something so masterfully LAZY about this.

Apparently, people are now eating oranges in the SHOWER . . . because it helps them avoid the sticky mess that comes from eating them in normal places.

And the trend is spreading because people are sharing pictures of their “shower oranges” on social media. Of course they are.

Chubby Dads Are More Attractive to Women and Live Longer

Chubby Dads Are More Attractive to Women and Live Longer

2016-11-01-08_08_14-dad-bod-squad-video-dailymotion

I’m not sure any fathers out there need MORE of an excuse to gently ease into a life of wearing sweatpants seven days a week and dipping pizza into ranch dressing, but here you go.

According to a new study out of Yale University, chubbier dads live longer than other men . . . AND they’re MORE ATTRACTIVE to women.

Why? When you lose a little muscle mass and gain a little fat, it actually helps your body shift some of its resources toward your immune system instead of just worrying about feeding your muscles.

And women are biologically drawn to a dad with some chubbiness, because it’s a sign that you’re focused on your kids above anything else . . . including trying to get with women.

So since you’re not interested in them . . . they’re interested in you.

Hey, good news:  You can finally stop hanging out with all of your “friends” who you don’t really like that much.  ‘Cause they’re really not doing ANYTHING for you.

A new study out of the University of Toronto found that the key to living a long life is being close with your FAMILY.

Quote, “Older people who were closer with their family were less likely to die.  No such associations were observed for number of or closeness to friends.”

The study also found that being married helps you live longer . . . even if you’re in a BAD marriage.  The researchers say that just having the marriage bond gives you a healthy sense of security.

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.
