“Don’t settle for average. Bring your best to the moment. Then, whether it fails or succeeds, at least you know you gave all you had.” —Angela Bassett
Dating apps users ‘more likely to have unhealthy attitudes to weight’
A new Harvard study showed that people who are using dating apps on a regular basis are more likely to have ‘unhealthy eating disorders’. The probability is 3-16 times for those who use apps.
The unhealthy attitude includes fasting (50% of surveyed), using diet pills and laxatives (25% of surveyed women and 40% men), self-induced vomiting, consuming muscle-building supplements or anabolic steroids.
The authors of the study believe that the reason for such behavior is caused by current dating apps, which encourage users to judge matches on their physical appearance, forcing singles to go to extreme lengths to look slim and fit.
The spurious, questionable science behind DNA testing kits
Wired journal questions the credibility of modern DNA tests. Scientists say that the tests aren’t as extensive and in-depth as they appear to be.
DNA kits are used in different fields such as health, cosmetics products, custom recipes, and dating (e.g. WeHaveChemistry or Pheramor).
