So THAT'S Why Your Hangovers Get Worse As You Get Older
There’s one aspect of growing older that does not age like a fine wine: Hangovers. If you’ve ever been on the wrong side of a long night out after, say, age 29, you don’t need to be told. You feel both baffled about and nostalgic for a time, just a few years ago, when you could have one too many and wake up early, bright eyed and ready for spin class. What gives?    While the science of the phenomenon ― and how to make it better ― is still difficult for researchers to pin down, experts have some theories as to why your body just can’t handle sharing a pitcher of margaritas an...

Americans Are Having Less Sex Than They Used To
American adults of every age group are having less sex than they were a generation ago, suggests a study published Tuesday in the Archives of Sexual Behavior. Specifically, Americans born in the 1980s and 1990s are having less sex than those born in the 1960s and 1970s had at the same age ― despite their reputation for relying on dating apps to set up sexual encounters and preferring hookup culture to traditional courtship. The study, which included data from 26,000 adults, compared sexual activity among Americans in the late 1990s to the early 2010s. It found that adults had sex an average nine fewer times per year...

How Motherhood Keeps Me Sober
I was in a bar last night. A grimy, gross bar –- the kind of bar where you’d shudder to see daylight hit the upholstery. I went to use the bathroom and my first thought was that I can’t BELIEVE I used to do cocaine off those surfaces. Now that I have eight years clean and sober, I am able to go to bars on occasion.

I usually know to leave when people begin to reach the level of drunkenness where they are circling and retelling the same stories over and over. But on t...

Your Drunken Urge For Pizza And Wings, Explained By Science
Anyone who’s ever had a lot to drink probably knows the feeling: You want to chow down on pizza, fast food or other grub — and probably a lot of it. Now, a new study in mice may offer a possible explanation for this desire to overeat: Alcohol may activate some of the brain cells that normally make people feel hungry. Although the study was conducted in mice, the findings likely apply to people as well because humans have the same types of neurons in their brains as the neurons the researchers focused on in the study, said Jessica R. Barson, an assistant professor of neurobiology at Drexel University College of ...
