Oh, and I've known about demodexes since high school biology class about FIVE YEARS AGO. Creepy, but probably necessary, like friendly bacteria in our bowels.

22. The hole in the earth's ozone layer is closing - and could be entirely closed by 2050. Meanwhile, the amount of greenhouse gases is increasing.

38. Most of us have microscopic, wormlike mites named Demodex that live in our eyelashes and have claws and a mouth.

I do NOT like the sound of that $hit! :o

they're not JUST on your eyelashes, or at least that species of mite.They are EVERYWHERE! you'd need to bathe in acid to get rid of them too.

The only thing on that list that will do be any good is the thing about the blue light fending off drowsiness, considering I work midnight shift.

32. Just 30 minutes of continuous kissing can diminish the body's allergic reaction to pollen, relaxing the body and reducing production of histamine, a chemical cell given out in response to allergens.

I'll remember that the next time I make out with a Dandelion.

2. The part of the brain that regulates reasoning, impulse control and judgment is still under construction during puberty and doesn't shift into autopilot until about age 25.

Makes complete sense now.

Everyone of these is fact actually. I love my science and technology updates. Wow I read a lot.

Good to see an honest list like this. Oh and, I am definitely taking up the chocolate milk thing. (can't overdo it of course)

20. A substance called resveratrol, also found in red wine, protects mice from obesity and the effects of aging, and perhaps could do the same for humans.

Actually in a Time magazice article, it made the mice obese, but healthy compared to the ones without resveratrol.

16. A new planet described as a "super-Earth," which weighs 13 times as much as our planet, exists in a solar system 9,000 light-years away.

Book me a space ship ticket. NOW.
