Consuming onions and garlic can help your hair grow

In a study published in the June 2002 issue of "The Journal of Dermatology," scientists outlined the positive effects of onion juice on hair growth. A group of 23 patients applied onion juice twice a day; 86.9 percent of patients experienced regrowth after six weeks. Onion comes from the same family as garlic, the allium family, and its positive effect on hair regrowth comes from its high sulfur levels, which characterize all members of the allium family

Due to its antibacterial properties, garlic can rid the scalp of toxins and promote scalp circulation, both of which are essential for healthy growing hair. It's also good for relieving scalp dryness.

10 health benefits of Marijuana

1. Cancer
Cigarette smoke causes cancer because the tobacco is radiated whereas marijuana isn't  In fact, the American Association for Cancer Research has found the marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in the lungs, breasts, and brain considerably.

2. Seizures
Marijuana is a muscle relaxant and has “antispasmodic” qualities which have proven to be a very effective treatment of seizures. There are actually countless cases of people suffering from seizures that have only been able to function better through the use of marijuana.

3. Migraines
Since medicinal marijuana was legalized in California, doctors have reported that they have been able to treat more than 300,000 cases of migraines that conventional medicine couldn’t through marijuana. And that’s NOT just because it’s easy to fake having migraines, right? RIGHT?!
4. Glaucoma
Marijuana’s treatment of glaucoma has been one of the best documented. There isn’t a single valid study that exists that disproves marijuana’s very powerful and popular effects on glaucoma patients. Beat that, DEA!
5. Multiple Sclerosis
Marijuana’s effects on multiple sclerosis patients became better documented when former talk-show host, Montel Williams began to use pot to treat his MS. Marijuana works to stop the neurological effects and muscle spasms that come from the fatal disease.
6. Tourette’s and OCD
Just like marijuana can treat seizures and multiple sclerosis, marijuana’s effects slow down the tics in those suffering from Tourette’s, and the obsessive neurological symptoms in people with OCD.
7. ADD and ADHD
A well documented USC study done about a year ago showed that marijuana is not only a perfect alternative for Ritalin but treats the disorder without any of the negative side effects of the pharmaceutical.
8. IBS and Crohn’s
Marijuana has shown that it can help with symptoms of the chronic diseases as it stops nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
9. Alzheimer’s
Despite what you may have heard about marijuana’s effects on the brain, the Scripps Institute, in 2006, proved that the THC found in marijuana works to prevent Alzheimer’s by blocking the deposits in the brain that cause the disease.
10. Premenstrual Syndrome
Next time your girlfriend is complaining that you smoke too much weed, hand her a joint. Just like marijuana is used to treat IBS, it can be used to treat the cramps and discomfort that causes your girlfriend to lash out at you. Using marijuana for PMS actually goes all the way back to Queen Victoria. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

10 signs of a cell phone addiction

So, the other day I read an interesting article about cell phone addiction and I pretty much relate to all of these. In the comment space, include all the numbers that actually relate to. Are you an addict as well? Let's see: 

10. You’ve spent more on accessories than on your phone.
It started out with something harmless like a car charger, but then you stepped up to the car FM transmitter, armband, a different case for each day of the week, spare batteries, screen protectors, a stereo Bluetooth adapter, wireless speakerphone, and even a dock powered by tube amps. You realize that it’s just a phone, not a kid, right? And that none of it will work when you inevitably upgrade to the next version six months from now?

9. You have 30 different apps installed. And use them all.
We’ve all gone through app-installing binges where we’ve installed some questionable stuff on our cell phones. Two weeks later, we either figure out it’s garbage and delete it, or leave it to stagnate. But those of you still checking on your digital iPhorest trees, using car locater to find your Camry down the block every morning, and thumbing through digital copies of the U.S. Constitution during heated political debates are the real nuts.

8. You have alarms telling you when to do everything in your life.
Business meetings, doctor’s appointments, and group meetups. All valid events to put in your phone. Have an alarm for putting out the trash on Wednesday night? You’re in way too deep, buddy. When you need your phone to prod you through every step of the day, it might as well be your respirator or dialysis machine.

7. You read about your phone on your phone.

Not content to dream about your phone, fondle it in your pocket all day long, and relish every chance to use it, you actually invest time in finding out more about it, while using it. You read through the latest TUAW posts on your iPhone, or threads on the Crackberry forums from your Bold. Your phone is no longer a means to an end, it is the end.

6. You’ve cut back on necessities to afford your $100 a month cell phone bill.

OK, lunch is pretty important. But $5 a day adds up to like $150 a month, and that can totally pay your phone bill if you just switch to Jell-O and ramen noodles for a while. Or maybe you could just start hopping the turnstile instead of paying for a subway pass. Or move to a cheaper apartment. Or carry a balance on that credit card…

Does this logic sound familiar?

5. A full battery charge barely lasts the day.

After brushing your teeth and washing your face, your last ritual before bed is plugging in that smartphone. Because if you don’t, there’s no way that sucker’s lasting another full day after the workout you gave it today. We’ll admit that the battery life on some modern smartphones is pretty dismal, but if you’re downing a full charge day after day, you might need to lay off the juice.

4. You broke it, and it feels like you lost a friend.

In a moment of clumsiness, you went to remove it from your pocket for the 37th time in the last hour, slipped, and sent it pinwheeling toward pavement, where it landed with a sickening crack. Or, in a moment of carelessness, you let it slip out of your pocket on the train, waiting to be snatched up by some hawkeyed bum. Even worse, in a less-than-sober moment, you dropped it into a fountain (which is not a urinal, by the way). Whatever the circumstances, you can’t stop replaying the event in your mind, running over its irreplaceable digital contents in your mind, and kicking yourself for letting it happen. Maybe you even have dreams about a reunion with your long-lost friend. Er, phone. When the symptoms start to border post-traumatic stress disorder, it’s time to move on.

3. When you meet people with the same phone, you can only talk about the phone.
“You have an iPhone too? Oh awesome, have you tried the PDXBus app yet? Yea, this case is pretty cool, but I’m getting this metallic one soon that’s even slimmer.”

If this sounds at all like a conversation you might have upon meeting someone with the same smartphone, you should reconsider your smartphone addiction and your social life.

2. You feel a brief moment of panic when you touch your pocket (or grope to the bottom of your purse) and it’s gone.

We’re not talking about a lost phone here, just realizing you left it at home. And feeling the skipped heartbeat of sheer terror.
“What if people try to call me?”

“What if I can’t find the nearest Starbucks without asking someone?”

“What will my Twitter followers think?”

Take a deep breath before you need an iDefibrillator app and forge on without your faithful digital assistant. Life will be OK.

1. You use it in the bathroom.

This is just wrong. But not for hygienic reasons as you all suspect. If you’re using your smartphone on the can, you’ve just robbed yourself of your last refuge from interruption. You’ve tainted mankind’s last fortress of solitude by draggeing the entire equivalent of a computer into the equation. Can’t you live five minutes without e-mail? Really?

Sophie Frost and her boyfriend Mason Billington, both 14, stopped to shelter under a tree when a storm struck as they were walking around their neighborhood.

Anger is good for your health

People who bottle up their emotions tend to suffer from depression, stress and anxiety while those who express their anger are more likely to experience a release in which causes instant stress relief and boost in mood. So let it out, be upset, get mad and you'll most likely live a little longer!

Over 150 people survived falling from an airplane without a parachute


According to the Geneva-based Aircraft Crashes Record Office, between the years of 1940 and 2008 there were 157 people who fell out of planes during a crash and survived without a parachute living to tell about it. 42 of those falls occurred at heights at over 10,000 feet! One  incident involved a British Tail-gunner whose plane was shot down during WWII. He fell over 18,000 feet without a parachute. His fall was broken by pine trees and soft snow.

Why our fingers begin to wrinkle in water


Water tends to wash away the oily substance that protects your skin.  When this occurs, a certain type of dead cell on your skin will absorb the water causing the cells to swell up, but the layer underneath doesn't.  So the swelling, in addition to the places the skin is connected underneath to the non-swelled layer, causes your finger tips to look all wrinkly.

Starting rumors can help you gain more friends

Starting rumors can help you gain more friends. Psychologists suggest that rumors,  scandal and defamation of others is what brings two people closer. Professors at the University of Oklahoma had dozens of subjects "eavesdrop" on a recorded conversation between two fictional characters. The group was then asked to converse and chat about what they liked or disliked about these two characters.
The scientists found people felt closer if they agreed in their antipathy towards either character. A common fondness created less of a bond. "It appears that people's folk theories about friendship formation are amiss," the researchers wrote in the journal Personal Relationships. "There seems to be something especially delicious about the process of sharing our grievances about other people."

Feeling guilty can damage your immune system

Research suggests that a positive outlook on life can have great health benefits, but with guilt-ridden people feeling more vulnerable to illness than those who do things naturally out of spite. 
Researchers asked 30 students to list their favorite activities, giving them both a pleasure and a guilt rating from one to 10. Samples of saliva from the participants were then tested for levels of immunoglobulin A - an antibody which is the body's first line of defence against infection.
The team from Hull University found that high guilt ratings were accompanied by low immune levels.
