Now for the especially bad news: It’s become increasingly resistant to a number of antibiotics and increasingly common. Worse still, it’s often asymptomatic, meaning you might not even know if you’re infected.

When your partner is pulling away from you, it’s easy to leap to the worst, most extreme conclusion: He’s exhibiting signs he doesn’t love you anymore.

If any of these signs ring true, then relationship expert Monica Parikh, of School of Love NYC, recommends changing your behavior in order to “right the ship.” This means that if someone asks for space, you need to give it to them. Don’t engage in the push-pull dynamic that you might be tempted to do, where […]

Dark chocolate is one of the most delicious substances known to man, and it has the added benefit of being fairly good for you in moderation. A study led by Diederik Esser from Wageningen University in the Netherlands has shown that ingesting dark chocolate can actually improve vascular health.

Typical candy bars have a low cocoa percentage and much larger amounts of sugar […]
