    • Hot chips are unhealthy because they contain harmful ingredients, such as saturated fats and sodium, which in high volume have been linked with high blood pressure and even diabetes.  The American Diabetes Association suggests the following: “to lower you risk of heart disease, try to eat less of the unhealthy fats – saturated and trans fat.”  Additionally, “decreasing the amount of sodium in the diet can help many people lower their blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure also means you are decreasing your risk for heart attack or stroke, both of which are common diabetes complications” (from diabetes.org).

Reading makes you a better person.

    • I’ve always enjoyed reading partially because I thought it helped me become a better person by forcing me to consider perspectives that are very different than mine.  Apparently, I’m not alone; three psychologists from the University of Toronto recently published results of a study that support this idea of mine: “Exposure to literature,” the researchers write in the Creativity Research Journal, “may offer a (way for people) to become more likely to open their minds.” Their study showed that individuals who read complex texts were better prepared for complex events in the real world because they had more exposure to the confusion one experiences in the face of complexity.
