‘Could It Work as a Cure? Maybe.’ A Herbal Remedy for Coronavirus Is a Hit in Africa, But Experts Have Their Doubts
On April 20, the president calls a press conference to announce a breakthrough in the fight against COVID-19. It’s a new use for an old malaria treatment, he says, one that is seeing miraculous results among the country’s most ill patients. It’s so safe that even schoolchildren could take it. In fact, he urges them to do so daily, as a preventative. He admits that he, too, is taking the medicine. No, this is not the President of the United States touting an unproven remedy for a virus that has infected nearly 5 million people worldwide. It is Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina, who is just as wi...

Weekend Recipe: Steel-Cut Oats and Chai Porridge
The cold weather inspires me to nourish myself with warm foods and there’s no better warm, comfort food than porridge. I love the creamy and chewy texture of steel-cut oats, slowly simmered with warming aromatics such as vanilla bean, cinnamon and ginger. You can also add other spices or fruits such as smashed banana or diced apple. When serving this porridge, it’s important to have an extra pot of steaming hot milk on the side, ready to pour over. I think serving with hot milk is probably the most important rule in porridge making as it allows all the flavours to come together in perfect balance. You can serv...

There's Something (Shell) Fishy About This Seafood-Inspired Beer
A brewery in southwest England has given one of its beers a real shellfish twist. The Wild Beer Co used 30 live lobsters ― plus cockles, Kombu seaweed, sea salt, sea herbs, star anise and saffron ― to produce its 7 percent brew, called Of The Sea. Initial reaction to the concept was “mixed,” the company’s co-founder Andrew Cooper told HuffPost during a tasting at its brewery near Shepton Mallet in Somerset this month. “But we’d far rather brew something genuinely interesting and one that gets an emotional reaction from people than just another beer,” he added. Inspiration for the dr...

10 Of My Favorite Birth Practices Around The World
There is a lot of pressure for births to be a great experience, which can cause many women to feel inadequate. Cord Mama even speaks of the Dangerous Myth of an Ideal Birth: "just like none of our bodies can live up to that elusive standard of the "ideal woman," none of our birth stories will ever be perfect." And I agree with her wholeheartedly- I felt very ashamed for not giving birth without help the first time around. But it was not my fault- she was positioned the wrong way and had to turn, which meant that it was hard for me to give birth to her. It doesn't however discourage me from visualizing how a perfect bir...

Complex Hyperplasia with Atypia – Reethah ’ s Story
My story took off in October 2013 during an appointment with my doctor for something else entirely unconnected – eczema behind the ears. A chance mention in passing to my doctor that I had had an unexpected period the month before after a long gap caused her to prick up her ears. When was your last period before that? she enquired. I looked back at my diary where I log all my periods and body changes. I knew it had been more than a year and yes, it wasn’t in that diary’s calendar. So it must have been the previous year. And I had also known I was going to have this period. For several weeks before, my body had been d...

When aniseed does not smell at all like lemon: Sugar helps you tell apart smells, but only if they aren't sweet
Why do things have flavor? It's because we taste them and also smell them while we are eating. And the way in which taste and smell interact is quite intriguing. (Source: Psychonomic Society News)
