"Those of us with healthy immune systems, we could even eat [the fungi in Capri Sun, and that wouldn't be a problem," study researcher Kathleen Dannelly told LiveScience.

The super sugary cereals we miss the mostThink back to a typical Saturday morning as a 6 year old. With cartoons on the TV and a spoon in hand, you contentedly crunch away at your sugar-loaded cereal of choice: French Toast Crunch, perhaps, or the fluorescent flakes of Nerds cereal. You slurp down the strawberry milk left in the bowl from your Strawberry Honeycomb or the rainbow-streaked Sprinkle Spangles milk remnants, and go on with your happy childhood Saturday.Read More »from Cereals Too Sweet to Last

Don't want mysterious odors seeping through your pores? Avoid these foods or consume with cautionYou're sitting on a train that's slightly warm, packed with passengers, and suddenly you get a whiff of "rotten egg" stench. Stop after stop, the crowd thins out, but that onerous odor remains. You search for the offender as subtly as you can, so you can find a seat in the opposite direction. As your head swivels, you're hit with that stench again, so strong you could swear it was you. You nonchalantly dip your head down toward your underarm - wait a minute. It is you! But you didn't even work out today. And you took a shower this morning. And you're wearing deodorant!Read More »from Foods that Make You Smell

I'm not the type of person who normally plans my breakfast the night before. This is probably something I should aspire to in life.
Lucky for me, this week's genius recipe is the ideal I-just-woke-up-from-a-waffle-dream waffle, a morning-of alternative to the overnight yeasted kind (which is, admittedly, a whole other kind of genius).
This waffle -- served up at a funky restaurant called Aretha Frankenstein's in Chattanooga, TN as "The Waffle of Insane Greatness" -- is perfectly, surprisingly delicate. The crust is thin and crisp as an eggshell,Read More »from Waffles of Insane Greatness
