Various studies over the past decade have shown eating dark chocolate has health benefits. Specifically, it has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease because it contains flavonols. But science has been unclear how these flavonols actually benefit us. Now teams at Virginia Tech and LSU may have discovered why: most of the cocoa ...

A bar playing slower-tempo music causes patrons to linger and buy more drinks. A call center with subdued hold music has fewer hang ups. Shoppers spend longer in a stores when background music is slower. When your brain is distracted by a steady pace of music, you are less likely to notice how much time has passed. Fast music has the opposite effect. In a 2004 study, Wagner's ...

I started on SparkPeople in 2012, fell away when health issues drove me into a depression and am only recently back on a healthy lifestyle track. Meanwhile, I turned 50 (and am about to turn 51), so this looks like the right place to be. <BR> <BR> I'm just starting to blog again - it's my reflection pond. Feel free to check it out and friend me.
