Trying to trim that tummy? Take a bite out of a tomato. The juicy red fruits act as a natural appetite suppressant, helping you to cut down on unnecessary snacking.
Tomatoes are tops when it comes to staying trim. The juicy red orbs act as a natural appetite suppressant, making it easy to resist the temptation to snack, according to London's Daily Mail.
The findings came from research into the benefits of adding fruit and vegetables to white bread. When a group of normal weight women ate cream cheese sandwiches made with white bread or with bread enriched with carrots and tomatoes, they found the tomato bread the most satisfying, according to the Daily Mail.
“They were given the sandwiches in a random order, and we recorded how full they said they were,” Reading University researcher Dr. Julie Lovegrove told the Mail. “It was a small study, and we can't yet say what the crucial tomato ingredient is, but the results were statistically significant.”
Ladies, kissing may actually be good for you! New research says that kissing helps women build up immunity to a virus — cytomegalovirus — men pass on in their saliva. Pucker up!
The Telegraph reports that kissing may have developed as a way for a woman to build immunity from a virus called cytomegalovirus, which is present in saliva. The virus can cause blindness and other defects in newborn babies if the mother contracts it during her pregnancy.
According to Dr. Colin Hendrie of the University of Leeds, who published a report in the journal Medical Hypotheses, kissing is a way for the man to pass the virus on to the woman to give her time to build an immunity to it before she gets pregnant and gives birth. Hendrie said kissing the same partner for six months offers the best protection.
