Hugging it out

Hugs were responsible for one-third of the protective effect of social support. Among infected participants, greater perceived social support and more frequent hugs both resulted in less severe illness symptoms whether or not they experienced conflicts.”

Of course, there can be a downside to hugging people during flu and cold season the researchers are quick to point out. But even so, perhaps a hug a day can (along with an apple) keep the doctor away?

Time magazine has asked 5 experts if they think people should be drinking diet soda. And the results were thumbs down across the board. Along with sharing each expert’s opinion, the article adds “A recent study in Nature shows that zero-calorie artificial sweeteners might mess with gut bacteria in a way that predisposes mice to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.”

As some of you may know, when I weighed over 450 pounds, I was drinking 6-12 cans of diet soda a day. Giving up that (and soda all together) and replacing it with water was one of the ways that I took off over 250 pounds of excess weight and one of the contributors to my keeping the excess weight off for well over a decade.
