  • What's wrong with vegetarianism?

    Turns out that vegetarians are more prone to mental and physical illness, as compared to meat-eaters.

    Austria's Medical University of Graz conducted a study that revealed the vegetarian diet to carry elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. This is despite vegetarians leading healthier lifestyles, with lower alcohol consumption and lower body mass indices. Interestingly, the study also found that those who eat less meat tend to avoid doctor's appointments. Ironically, it is the vegetarians who showed highest need for medical treatment, accompanied by lower quality of life and general lack of health.

    Wonder what this means for vegetarians in India...

    In the meanwhile, here are some gorgeous vegetarians whose health you can worry over.

  • The cure for AIDS is here

    A second baby has been 'cured' of HIV, marking a huge success in the search for a cure.

    Pregnant women infected with the HIV virus are given medication during their pregnancy to prevent passing the virus on to the fetus. In a recent case, a woman who did not take the prescribed medication during her pregnancy, gave birth to a child with extremely high risk of infection. The child was given a three-drug treatment 24 hours after birth. Within six days, the virus began to disappear. By the 11th day it was no longer detectable in the baby's bloodstream.

    This is the second baby to be cured of AIDS, making it a huge success in the search for a cure for AIDS. Watch the video below on the first baby that was succesfully treated for the removal of the HIV-virus.

  • A dying mother's message to her newborn son

    When Michelle Wallace was diagnosed with endometrial cancer at age 43, after the birth of her fourth child, she realised that her newborn son might never know her. So she did something that was both brave and heartbreaking. She left her baby a video message so that he could get to know the mother he would not remember, except through the shared memories of his siblings. She created a "legacy video".

    A legacy video allows a person with a terminal illness to leave messages for their loved ones after they have passed away. It allows family members to see them after they have departed, to keep memories alive, and like in this case, reach out to children she has not been able to spend time with. Her son will now be able to hear her voice, see her talking and catch a glimpse of the person his mother was.
