Organic Does Not Mean Low Fat!

There's no doubt eating organic food is good for you, but there's a big misconception about just how good.   A new study published in the journal Judgment and Decision Making found that many people who eat organic foods believe the product is "low calorie." Scientists asked a group of people when it would be better to skip a workout – when they had eaten a healthy dinner with a regular dessert, an organic dessert or no dessert at all. Shockingly, more people thought it would be okay to skip the workout if they had the organic option rather than the regular goodie or even none at all. The researchers believe the mistake can be blamed on the overgeneralization of certain health claims, meaning people make a strong association between organic and healthy, and healthy and low calorie. So remember, an organic fudge brownie will still go straight to your thighs just like a regular one.

 

Nope, this isn't a crock! A woman in Australia really has three crocodiles for pets! The 53-year-old nurse has kept crocodiles for more than 30 years and even claims she can communicate telepathically with one of them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out this grassy marriage proposal! A man in Michigan spelled out "Will you marry me?" on his front lawn. He used fertilizer to write out the words and in a few weeks time, the grass had grown greener in those spots making the words clearly visible. Thankfully his girlfriend said yes and didn't mow him down.
