The Idiot’s Guide to Smarter Coffee Drinking

Science has figured out how to drink coffee for maximum benefit, and chances are you’re doing it all wrong. That’s because the right way to drink coffee isn’t always intuitive.

For instance, do you dive into a cup of coffee as soon as your eyelids open? Well this probably isn’t giving you the boost in energy you’re seeking. This is because, biologically speaking, our bodies are least in need of one at this time.

In this infographic, Art of Wellbeing explains exactly why your early morning cup of coffee is a biological mistake, plus six more tricks for smarter coffee drinking.

Here’s how one of the world’s most common toxins is poisoning American children

Flint, Michigan is in the midst of a horrific crisis. For years, lead has been leaching from its corroded pipes into its water supply, poisoning its residents.

Lead is one of the most egregious toxic metals that can enter the human body. While it sickens people of all ages, young children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies absorb four to five times as much as adults.

For this reason, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have warned that there are no safe levels of lead exposure for children. According to the World Health Organization, lead exposures contribute to 600,000 new cases of intellectual disabilities in children each year.

Here are the different ways lead exposures can often irreversibly harm young children.

Make sure to choose oils that, even when diluted with water, will not stain the crown, and be sure to disperse the oil well, so that, while scented, it won’t be bad for your hair (or, again, the crown). One thing I’ve never really mentioned is that it can be difficult to evenly disperse essential oils in water, given that they are, of course, oils, but it’s not impossible, so give it a go, but do your research and keep dangers such as allergies in mind for safety’s sake.
