Words hurt.

I was reminded by one of the main course points of a personality course I took last January 2008; the teacher said that for the 9 positive comments we receive and only one insult, we tend to remember the sole insult! True enough, negative comments or hurtful words leave a sting to our subconscious.

According to a new study, “memories of painful emotional experiences linger far longer than those involving physical pain.”

Eraserheads Reunion Concert

After all the controversy surrounding the much-hyped reunion concert of Philippine’s most famous rock band of the 1990s, The Eraserheads, it will finally push through tomorrow, Aug 30, 2008 at the Fort Open Field in Taguig. This time though it is under a new promoter, Radiohead Production.

It was rumored that each member was paid with a cool P2million. The band has a huge following during their heydays, and I am sure that their fans (who are now in their late 20s, early 30s) will come in droves for this momentous once-in-a-lifetime event.

So when can I expect other reunion of the original Rivermaya, Wolfgang, and Yano?

Fry your bowel!

We all know that fried foods are not healthy, period. But who cannot resist fried chicken, french fries, fried fish, etc.? Eventually, our body will just have to react.

Researchers have found that too much fried foods in your diet can increase your risk of bowel cancer later on.

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) calculates that eating 150g of processed meats like sausages and bacon daily raises the risk by 63%. In addition, the high calorie content of a fry-up raises the risk of obesity, which is linked to many cancers.
