The Ultimate Way to Cure Anxiety: Why are We All Addicted to Something?

By Markab Algedi, The Mind Unleashed

Why are we all addicted to something? Why do human beings in our culture have this nagging, constant insatiability? What are we searching for, why do we feel like we are lacking, and why do we seem to be constantly trying to cure ourselves of restlessness, boredom, or anxiety?

I don’t know the answer to that question one hundred percent, but I have some theories currently, with the level I am at in understanding this issue myself. This question is the type that you ask yourself over the course of your entire life: the answer is ever-changing, growing as a person personally learns how to be happy in life without seeking so many external things.

By Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

How often do you see kids using iPads, iPhones, and any other touch screens? Technology has slowly but surely become deeply engrained within society, and some schools are even distributing touch screen tablets to students to use while in class. They’re convenient, paperless, and extremely relevant given that you practically need to know how to use technology in today’s society. However, are there any downsides to children using touch screens, especially for prolonged periods of time?

A recent study published this year in Scientific Reports examined the effects of frequent touch screen use in children. Their findings suggest that increased usage may negatively affect children’s sleep patterns. Continue reading Study Shows What Happens To The Brains of Kids Who Use Tablets

What a Kid Who Has Never Eaten a Gram of Sugar in Her Life Looks Like Now

via Natural Blaze

Grace Cooper is 2 and a half years old right now and she has never eaten a gram of processed sugar in her life! Shan, Grace’s mom, said publicly that when her daughter is old enough to understand what she likes and doesn’t like, she is not going to force her to stay on strict diet. She just wants to create a solid foundation for her baby’s future health.

“If she eats a piece of bread I’m not going to have a conniption,” Shan told the Daily Mail when the girl was only 13 months old.

“She’s going to go to kids’ parties and eat what’s there. I’m never going to go to Grace, ‘You can’t eat anything at this party, but I packed you some kale, here you go.’” Continue reading What a Kid Who Has Never Eaten a Gram of Sugar in Her Life Looks Like Now

The University of California, Berkeley has struck again in their effort to be a hub for progress with the recent opening of their Alternative Meats Lab, which is currently offering its second course to students to make plant-based meats. As the demand for alternatives to meat in America rises, the university saw the need to be at the forefront of change by offering a spring course designed to teach students how to make their own plant-based meats. Since the class proved to be so popular, the college not only brought it back for fall this year but they also opened up the Alternative Meats Lab to further their mission.

Scientists Warn Chemotherapy Treatment May Encourage Aggressive Tumors and Spread Cancer

By Carolanne Wright,  Wake Up World

In my early thirties, I lost my mother to a rare, but deadly, form of cancer that was growing around her bile duct. Sixteen years later, my father also died from cancer. As horrific as the disease can be, I remember thinking during my mother’s illness that the treatment was worse than the cancer. Watching our mother endure chemotherapy — and the effect it had on her physical, mental and spiritual well-being — both my sister and I seriously questioned for the first time whether we would choose such a treatment if we were ever diagnosed with cancer. To this day, my answer is still a resounding NO. Continue reading Scientists Warn Chemotherapy Treatment May Encourage Aggressive Tumors and Spread Cancer
