Did You Know???

UV Filters
Swiss National Research Program found UV filters, which are common in cosmetics and sunscreens, were present in 85 percent of human milk samples tested. So babies are taking in this contaminated milk? Disgusting.

Waking yourself up?
So you know all those night lights you have around your bedroom and bathroom, they could be what’s keeping you up. Even the smallest amount of light stimulates the Pineal gland thereby reducing melatonin levels and keeping you awake.

Sugar and Fat
Foods high in fat and sugar (like most Christmas treats) cause the brain to release many of the same pleasure chemicals that produce drug addiction, including cortisol, dopamine, galanin and serotonin.
