Drinking enough water every day is something often overlooked because of how basic it is. While there is popular opinion that eight glasses of water daily is optimal, it seems excessive to most people, with the total amount reaching nearly 2 liters. Earlier this year, experts revealed that the commonly mentioned amount is misleading. "Fluid requirements vary among individuals based on age, sex, activity level and even where you live," said Jessica Fishman Levinson, founder of nutrition counseling company Nutritioulicious, as quoted by MSN. These factors can include daily activities and influence how much water you need every day. In general, The Institute of Medicine recommends that women drink 2.7 liters of water per day, although such large amounts are certainly not mandatory. In fact, since all fluids count toward the daily intake of water, including the water content of the foods you eat, most people always adequately hydrate themselves simply … [Read more...] about How much water you should drink every day, according to experts

Not enough breastfeeding costs the global economy almost $1 billion each day due to lost productivity and healthcare costs, researchers said on Friday, as health experts urged more support for nursing mothers. A new website developed by researchers in Canada and Asia showed that the world could have saved $341 billion each year if mothers breastfeed their children for longer, helping prevent early deaths and various diseases. Known as the "Cost of Not Breastfeeding", the online tool used data from a six-year study supported by the US-based maternal and child nutrition initiative, Alive & Thrive. "It is a human right, it saves lives and improves the prosperity of economies," Canada-based health economics expert Dylan Walters said about the importance of breastfeeding. Walters, who led the study of more than 100 countries, said the website was the first of its kind and aimed to help policymakers to measure economic losses in individual countries when they do not support … [Read more...] about More breastfeeding could save the world $1 billion every day
They don’t shout to attract hungry passers-by. In fact, the smell of lemongrass coming from the soup is more powerful than a hawker’s shout. It slows the passers-by. A bowl of plain mohinga is priced at K400, and for an extra K100 it comes with gourd fritters, enough to satisfy those hunger pangs. Over a decade, street hawkers on the pavements near bus stands, stores and offices have served the needs of people from all walks of life. Ko Soe Aung was first a tofu salad seller, then a trishaw driver before becoming a street hawker, selling mohinga. By a twist of fate, he now owns six street stalls selling mohinga and Rakhine Monti, employing a dozen of young people, alongside himself and his wife. It was a harsh life before he settled with this kind of work. Ko Soe Aung came from Butalin, Monywa in the Mandalay Region and settled in Yangon where he found low-paid work. He met a woman from Pyawbwe in the city and married her. “I started to sell tofu … [Read more...] about Counting on a humble dish for a better life

By Kathryn Hudson The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I never know how often to wash my hair. I’ve read that it’s good to skip as many washes as possible, but my hair has a tendency to get quite limp after a day or two, maximum. I often resort to wearing it up or using dry shampoo to try to prolong my style, but I’m wondering if I should just wash it every day to freshen it up. Will that actually damage my hair? — Shelley, Oakville There is a good chance this question is also scrawled on the wall of a cave somewhere — painted in symbols by primitive man — because it seems like one of the most fundamental queries asked over and over again by humankind. (Perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration, but the topic does garner over 122 million hits when Googled online, so it seems clear we’re searching for an answer.) I, myself, engage in variations of this conversation several times a day. I have to carefully schedule when I … [Read more...] about Ask The Kit: Do I really need to wash my hair every day?
