Did You Know?

The tomato is the world’s most popular fruit. And yes, just like the brinjal and the pumpkin, botanically speaking it is a fruit, not a vegetable. More than 60 million tons of tomatoes are produced per year, 16 million tons more than the second most popular fruit, the banana. Apples are the third most popular (36 million tons), then oranges (34 million tons) and watermelons (22 million tons).

Homeopathy For Diabetics

There’s currently little to no evidence that homeopathy is effective for treating diabetes. You can usually treat it with a change in diet, exercise, and prescription medications to manage blood sugar.

Homeopathy is an alternative medical system. It’s also called homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy involves the idea that you can treat a condition with a diluted amount of a natural substance that may cause symptoms of the disease in healthy people. This is the homeopathic principle of “like cures like.”

Genes Traits You May Not Know You Have

If you’re a redhead, you didn’t just get your ginger locks from your parents—you also got this inherited trait: an ability to withstand stinging pain better than blondes and brunettes. In a series of studies, Danish researchers at Aalborg University injected subjects with capsaicin, the active component of chili, and found that redheads were less sensitive to this type of pain. Because of this, they can better tolerate spicy foods as well as the discomfort of a pinprick. Other research, however, suggests that the world’s 2 percent of redheads are more sensitive to cold and less responsive to injected forms of anesthesia. No matter the color, here are 30 tips for healthier, more attractive hair.
