LOSING WEIGHT IS AS EASY AS HAVING MORE ORGASMS, SAYS NEW STUDY

We already know having sex is good for you in many different ways. It helps prevent cancer, it makes your skin a lot nicer, it stops aches and pains, it offers you some orgasmic stress relief...but did you know that having sex can also help you lose weight? 

But not because it makes you sweat. It’s more biological than that.

According to a 10-year study by Canada’s York University and the Center for Addiction and Mental Health, oxytocin, one of the major hormones released during sex, decreases food cravings, which in turn makes you lose weight! Awesome!

The study followed a large number of participants ranging from 27 to 50 years old, all with different body types. Some participants were overweight, some were average weight, but many of the participants identified as binge eaters.

Each participant filled out a self-evaluation questionnaire that rated their “reward sensitivity, punishment sensitivity, sugar/fat food preferences, and overeating habits,” which was then compared with their genetic profiles. Very science-y.

The researchers found that those who had higher levels of oxytocin didn’t binge eat, and conversely, those who had low levels of oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone” were the binge eaters. So yeah, those with high levels of the hormone were probably getting it on a lot more than their binge-eating counterparts.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
