Study: Teens Who Use Marijuana Have Slight Reductions In Cognitive Function

Researchers reviewed nearly 69 studies from more than four decades and found that young people who said they were heavy marijuana users were more likely to have slightly lower scores on tests of memory, problem solving and processing speed. We’ve known that marijuana can slow certain brain functions like learning, memory and attention span, but perhaps what was more surprising in this study is that if young people stopped usi...

Experts Say Showering Too Much May Do More Harm Than Good
CBS Local — Many people start the day with shower to wake themselves up or at night to get the day’s grime off; however, health experts are saying people are probably washing up too much.

The report added that scrubbing interrupts the body’s natural oil production which promotes healing. This results in dryer, cracked skin. ...
