Did You Know…

1. Mosquito repellents don’t repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquito’s sensors so they don’t know you’re there. 

2. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning. Instead of your morning coffee, maybe you should try apple (not the gagdet, I mean the fruit).  It is healthier, you know what they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

3. People whose index fingers are shorter than their ring fingers may be twice as prone to osteoarthritis (a type of arthritis) in their knees.  People with shorter index fingers have a lower level of estrogen, which is tied to higher risk of Osteoarthritis when you have a deficiency on this hormone.
4. Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system. Six-year-olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day.  LAUGH NOW!

5. If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water. For when a human body is dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off.

6. An adult has fewer bones than a baby.  We were born with with 350 bones, but the bones fuse together during growth, so we end up with only 206 when we become adults.
