Friday Features

It's the return of Friday Features!  Lately, I've been seeing more and more articles promoting some research findings that I've been living by for a while. Vindication! Love having a quick link to send to my friends, family, and YOU that unearths and explains some important science that impacts your life.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science
recaps a research study's findings about the negative impact
of e-readers' light on participants sleep quantity and quality,
as well as their alertness and functioning the following day!!

Yet another publication has caught up to the times:
"Nutritional experts say it's time to stop fearing fat."
The article as a whole is tentative, as the title indicates
by placing responsibility on the "nutritional experts."
It goes back and forth, asking expert after expert about their take
on a recent research study.  Some advice holds back,
saying saturated fat is still bad (I'm over it), yet other parts say it like it is:
"Compared with carbohydrates, saturated fats appear to have a neutral effect
on cardiac health and diabetes, he said. 
Compared with trans fats, sugar, and refined carbohyhdrates, saturated fats almost surely are healthier. "  
My takeaway?  The word "healthy" is relative, and
there are more dangerous demons to deal with; fat should be forgiven. 

Suffering from dry hands in this cold weather, 
 Liz & Amanda suggest some worry-free, natural 

Lastly, Laura Shoenfeld, MPH, RD dares you to
Take a Play-cation, with six reasons to back her up!  

That's all for now! 

Enjoy, and have a great weekend :)
