One of the scariest things I uncovered when researching my book was just how many toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis. We drink out of plastic bottles that contain BPA, a known carcinogen that also sucks away our testosterone and makes us infertile. We eat foods laced with hormones that have the potential to give us prostate cancer. 90% of the soy in the USA is genetically modified, engineered to be resistant to massively toxic fertilizers and other poisons like Roundup – the poster-child for Monsanto’s billions. We suck the fumes from the freeways and swim in oceans that are polluted by the run-off from factories and industrial waste. Toxic chemicals and pollutants are all around us – but one fact I was surprised to uncover was just how many toxins and chemicals are in our fragranced personal care products – the stuff we put on our face and lather our bodies with every day.

Compared with long-chair triglycerides, the medium variety are absorbed and metabolized by the body differently. These differences are part of the reason coconut oil has been credited with a wide range of health benefits. Here are 12 of them: Read More
“Dad bods” are the new fitness standard for a growing bunch of men across the United States. What’s a dad bod? Well, think Seth Rogan, Jason Segel or Leonardo DiCaprio on summer vacation and between movie roles: overweight, out of shape, and happy and content with his pasta, rosé and Victoria’s Secret models. Basically, pudgy, cuddly, doughy, don’t really care about how you look any more: That’s the dad bod. And some women are supporting the new trend, if you believe the studies — apparently because having a man who has a dad bod as a partner takes the pressure off them to stay in shape. Another rationale is that if the man is not as focused on his own body, he’ll spend more time with and take better care of his partner and family — or so the theory goes. Read More
