Women Bikers

Did you know that women bikers may have something in common with men who suffer from erectile dysfunction? Earlier research conducted on male police officers during bicycle patrol (would love to know how they did this) demonstrated that these cops had increased compression of the genital nerves and blood vessels which lead to a (literal) drop in their performance in the more...

A Pill to Forget

Most of us are more worried about losing our memory but in the case of individuals who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), remembering things is part of the problem. Up until now, treatment for PTSD has been difficult with various therapies designed to desensitize a patient from past incidents that remain harmful, vivid and intrusive. However, research more...

Drink two espressos to enhance long-term memory and call me in the morning, if you remember.

Drink two espressos to enhance long-term memory and call me in the morning, if you remember. Drink three and you’ll forget. A recent study provides the first convincing evidence that caffeine enhances long-term memory in people – provided the dose is right. 100 or 300 mgs don’t work but 200mg does! The effects mirror similar results seen in honeybees, where a more...

Does drinking water help me loose weight?

  If you drank nothing but water and ate nothing but ice, I suspect you’d lose weight. But drinking extra water with meals will not reduce the amount of food that you eat. If you drink several glasses of water with your Happy Meals, the extra water will distend your stomach and make you feel full for a minute or two, but the water leaves your stomach as more...

You absorb most of your food as it passes through your small intestines. Food that is not absorbed in more...

Why Does My Husband Not Fill His Prescription?

Nearly one in three new prescriptions goes unfilled, suggests a new study. The nocebo effect (of which I have written) may be partly to fault but certain clues suggests other possible reasons. Prescriptions for things like urinary infections, which are painful and difficult to ignore, or antibiotics, which tackle infections, were more likely to be filled. Higher more...

Women Who Are Stressed Have Difficulty Getting Pregnant

This despite the fact that we men give women such an incredibly stress-free existence. But apparently some women do get as anxious as an obese mallard on Duck Dynasty and they can’t get pregnant, possibly due to the fact that men are running the other direction screaming like school girls.

Finding the G-Spot

Great news for women!  Scientists have successfully located the G-Spot…now let’s hope that your partner can too.  For decades, experts have argued that a supposed pleasure centre located in the vaginal walls existed as an area that could be stimulated in an effort to produce a satisfying orgasm (as opposed to the non-satisfying).  However, until recently, this more...
