    What Is Stem Cell Therapy and How Does It Work?

    What Is Stem Cell Therapy and How Does It Work?

    Stem cell therapy has been in the news often in recent years. From its entry into the mainstream, with George W. Bush’s adoption of a partial funding approach in 2001, stem cell research has become a hotly-debated topic that has grown on the minds of every day Americans for years. Often, however, the actual use, case and benefits of stem cell therapy are ignored or downplayed in favor of a more theoretical approach in discussion.

    How Long Should We Sleep?

    How Long Should We Sleep?

    There’s been an ongoing debate about how many hours is the right amount that we should all sleep. Well, there isn’t a simple answer to this question since the hours we sleep depend on several factors like our age, health and whether or not we’re suffering from any sleep-related problems. Therefore, taking everything into consideration, the myth that everyone should sleep 8 hours per night, as we can see, is just that—a myth! However, there are some general recommendations which you can find in the infographic about sleep stats and facts.

    Biking to School Changed Everything

    Biking to School Changed Everything

    I had graduated from university just last year. I decided to pursue a different career path, so I am now at a different post-secondary known as Bow Valley College in Calgary. It has been six months since I last rode the bus, and it was my first day of school. As soon as I got on, I remembered why I hated transit. The whole bus smells of old socks and coffee breath from the morning crowd of the bus. I sit near the window and, of course, the next person that gets on sits next to me, and I can smell their overpowering axe spray. I forgot how rough the stops are on the bus; it lurches you forward, nearly throwing you to the next bus seat. I have not been on the bus for more than five minutes and I already feel queasy. It was finally my stop, and I thank the bus driver as I get off and head for the school.

    No More Fungus, at Least on Your Toenail

    Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis in scientific terms, is a condition wherein an off-white colored spot is formed on the toenail. Being a quite common condition, it affects many people every year. Most of the persons affected by it often seem to overlook it, but ignoring this condition might lead to serious complications later on. Starting small, it can also affect the adjoining fingernails if not looked after. But the toenail changes color and shape after several activities, so how do you identify if it's toenail fungus?
