How Does The Body Absorb Vitamins?


“A full day’s supply of vitamin C! A full day’s supply of 12 vitamins and minerals! A single glass of vitamin-D-fortified milk sending half a day’s recommended dose of the vitamin coursing through your body! It’s very exciting, all this vitamin-y goodness. Vitamins, which are organic substances found in plant and animal sources, help our bodies function properly. They’re crucial to the activities of our cells, our organs, immune systems and general energy supply. They may even help ward off cancer. What exactly does that mean, though, to consume vitamins? What happens when we swallow foods containing vitamin molecules? How do we absorb them in order to reap their healthful effects?” w/ photos

Can You Sneeze In Space?


“Although George Clooney or Sandra Bullock didn’t sneeze in the movie ‘Gravity,’ real astronauts do. They also cough and blow their noses. Frank Borman in Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, vomited and had diarrhea. All of these lovely events might happen in the cozy confines of a spaceship or out on a spacewalk with a helmet on. The things that make an astronaut sneeze in space are the same things that make all of us sneeze on Earth. Ready to find out what they are?” w/ photos

Why Does Sleeping In Just Make Me More Tired?


“Your brain is still lying down and you even have faint headache. If too little sleep is a problem, then why is extra sleep a terrible solution? Oversleeping feels so much like a hangover that scientists call it sleep drunkenness. But, unlike the brute force neurological damage caused by alcohol, your misguided attempt to stock up on rest makes you feel sluggish by confusing the part of your brain that controls your body’s daily cycle.” w/ photo

Can You Cook A Meal On Your Car’s Engine?


“Engines generate a great deal of heat, and capturi­ng that heat to use for cooking is a relatively straightforward process. Any engine that’s in good repair is suitable for cooking. If your car has exhaust system problems, the exhaust fumes may remain in the engine area. While it won’t affect your health to eat food prepared on such an engine (unless you cook this way on a regular basis), it might affect the flavor. Exhaust problems aren’t good for your car or the environment anyway, so you might as well have those issues repaired. With your car in good working order and your stomach rumbling, you’re ready to cook. But how?” w/ photos
