Above: Why Is Alcohol So Dangerous For Babies?

When women drink while pregnant, there is a chance that it will severely damage the brain of the fetus, but what happens to a baby if the baby gets drunk outside of the womb? Did you realize that given the same exact amount of alcohol, the level of intoxication varies according to physiological and biological factors such as being a baby girl instead of a baby boy as well as the amount of muscle versus fat in the baby’s body?

Alcohol affects two crucial parts of a baby’s brain which are extremely vulnerable when a baby is developing. This drinking of alcohol by a developing baby girl or baby boy can result in irreversible brain changes or even brain damage that can impact decision making, personality, memory, and learning.

There is a difference between having money and making sure nobody in your family tree has to ever worry about money. These are the top ten richest families in the world:

Number 10: Bettencourt Family

Estimated family net worth: thirty six billion dollars. The name might sound familiar because Liliane Bettencourt is also the wealthiest and richest woman in the world. Even if you have never heard the name before you certainly have heard of L’Oreal. Back in 1907 Eugene Schueller started the legendary business. After he passed away his daughter Liliane Bettencourt took over the company. However, she is not running L’Oreal anymore because she is suffering from dementia. Her only daughter is taking care both of her and her family empire. Liliane Bettencourt is not just the head of the richest family in France, she is also the richest widow and the richest woman in the world. Liliane Bettencourt holds her family’s total net worth which is estimated at around $36 billion United States dollars.

“Our destiny is to become what we think, to have our thoughts become our bodies and our bodies become our thoughts” – Terence McKenna.

“If human history is the story of a creature who molts from ape to
angel – or, as Nietzsche claimed, from beast to Superman – then
somewhere along the way it seems that we must become machines” – Erik Davis.

What Exactly Does The Sun Do To Your Beautiful Skin?

Above: What Exactly Does The Sun Do To Your Beautiful Skin?

Have you ever wondered what exactly the sun does to your beautiful skin? Join us as we explain what UV rays do to your beautiful body. These young women had no clue what the sun did to their once beautiful young looking skin. We have a range of terrible excuses for forgetting to put on sunscreen — from being in a rush, to not wanting to get our hands oily (there’s a spray for that, people), to believing that the sun’s rays are entirely blocked when it’s overcast and cloudy.

Sunlight arrives on earth in three forms: infrared (heat), visible light, and ultraviolet. Fair-skinned women usually burn rather than tan in the sun because they lack melanin, which is responsible for a tan’s coloring. A fifth of adults think they can’t get a sunburn if they already have a tan.

Is Tanning Ever A Good Thing For Your Body?

Above: Is Tanning Ever A Good Thing For Your Body?

Summer is here, and that means more time in the sun! However, most of us have been warned about the dangers of sun exposure. But our fashion models wonder, is getting that bronzed bikini body ever actually good for your health? There is a pervasive belief in our culture that a tan connotes health, affluence, wealth, and even beauty. Guess what? Tanning beds are really bad for you. In fact, many doctors believe that tanning beds are as bad for you as smoking.

Why Do Baby Girls Have Birthmarks? Why Do Women Have Birthmarks? What Causes Birthmarks? Are They Dangerous?

Above: Why Do Baby Girls Have Birthmarks? Why Do Women Have Birthmarks?

Why do we have birthmarks? Do you have a birthmark? What causes birthmarks? Are birthmarks dangerous? ‘Strawberry’ birthmarks grow rapidly when babies are just a few weeks old. Strawberry shaped birthmarks called infantile hemangiomas grow rapidly in infants much earlier than previously thought, researchers have discovered. What are Birthmarks? The term ‘birthmark’ can refer to all sorts of spots in the human body.

A birthmark is a benign irregularity on the skin which is present at birth or appears shortly after birth, usually in the first month. Birthmarks can occur anywhere on the skin. Birthmarks are caused by overgrowth of blood vessels, melanocytes, smooth muscle, fat, fibroblasts, or keratinocytes.

Dermatologists divide birthmarks into two types. Pigmented birthmarks caused by excess skin pigment cells include moles, café au lait spots, and Mongolian spots. Vascular birthmarks (also called red birthmarks) are caused by increased blood vessels and include macular stains (salmon patches), hemangiomas, and Port-wine stains. A little over 1 in 10 babies have a vascular birthmark present by age 1. Several birthmark types are part of the group of skin lesions known as nevi or naevi, which means “birthmarks” in Latin.

The exact cause of most birthmarks is unknown, but vascular birthmarks are not hereditary. Vascular birthmarks are thought to occur as a result of a localized imbalance in factors controlling the development and migration of skin cells.
