All the Fun Without the Buzz: 5 Healthy Alcohol Substitutes
From the blog: "Though some people enjoy alcoholic beverages, excessive drinking can cause a variety of physical, mental, and social issues. Not only can it cause scar tissue on the liver, but alcohol consumption has been linked to higher risks of throat cancer, breast cancer, and depression. If you want to enjoy a fun drink while cutting back on alcohol, consider one of these fantastic alternatives."
Giving Yourself Permission To Live The Life You Deserve
From the blog: "This concept of needing permission is more common to women than men; men, for the most part,have an innate sense of entitlement resulting from the way their mothers nurtured them and from societal mores that continually reinforce that men have power."
From the blog: "If you are thinking about getting plastic surgery or have already had some in the past, a great way to keep up with new trends, ever-evolving health information, or just accurate information about a type of surgery you are interested in, plastic surgery blogs can be a great place to look."
Dental treatments that you must always choose with care
From the blog: "The dentist would suggest a couple of things to take care after having the dental treatment at home. However, before you blindly agree to your dentist, it would be rather wise to know something about the dental treatments, which will also help to question the dental expert before you go for the same."
