An Apple a Day: Health Benefits of Apples

Does it Really Keep the Doctor Away?

Ah, the apple! One of the most cultivated fruits in the world, with more than 7,500 different types of apples available, the apple is likely one of the most well-known fruits on the planet.

This situation causes us to get more creative about finding ways to protect him from mosquito bites, so he doesn’t have to stay doped up on Benadryl all spring and summer.

With summer and vacations comes a whole new crop of skin hazards. I’ve spent the summer in the Galveston area of Texas, enjoying the sunshine, the beach, and the mosquitoes. Okay, maybe not enjoying the mosquitoes so much. That’s what I wanted to talk about: special skin hazards and concerns for the summer and vacation!

Let’s look at summer skin care concerns first. Read the rest of this entry »

Benefits for Adult Breastfeeding or Adult Nursing Relationships

Can Adults Reap Benefits to Drinking Breast Milk and Adult Nursing?

In this world, it takes all kinds of people to make the world go ’round, and in the past, I’ve written on some unusual relationships, including polyamorous relationships, objectum sexual relationships, and others. In this article, I want to discuss adult breastfeeding or adult nursing relationships.

I stumbled upon an article about adult breastfeeding in an adult nursing relationship and initially was quite surprised. Then, when I continued reading and thinking about it, the positive aspects of adult breastfeeding, both in and out of an adult nursing relationship, began to make sense to me.
