You should see my phone accessories. They're super popular in Korea and so funny! You can stick like an object into the earphone plughole. I can't really explain, but now my iphone looks like an apple. If you find me on Facebook you can see it! I've got all kinds of other attachments too. Heehee. Although, I don't know if I want to keep using my phone so much because of this article.
Frequent Cell Phone Users Slobber More
How funny and gross is that? The investigation found out that heavy users of mobile phones had increased salivary flow rate, blood flow rate and volume of parotid glands. Those are our salivary glands. You know how your ears get hot after being on the phone too long? Well, that heat and radio frequency radiation emitting from your phone is absorbed by the tissues where you use your phone (hopefully that's your ear). All that heat can cause the adjacent tissue to expand and increase in volume and the radiation absorbed by the water in the tissues can further raise skin temperature and modify blood flow too.
Hopefully, we'll be talking less on our phones and more face-to-face time. Or we'll find ourselves slobbering and spitting all over each other. EW.
I made these cookies before I left DC, so I could use everything up in the fridge! Super fast and easy to make. You can always freeze the ones you don't eat and then toast them up or microwave them for a healthy snack. I always have a few of these in the mornings. If you're not a fan of chocolate, add in nuts, shaved coconut blabla etc... you get the idea :)
