Rachael Link describes what are acidic foods and how it can adversely impede your health including an individual’s bone health, causing inflammation and chronic pain:

“One study published in the journal Osteoporosis International out of Switzerland gave participants either an acidic or alkaline diet and showed that the acidic diet increased the amount of calcium excreted through the urine by 74 percent. Another study showed that men with low intake of calcium and a diet high in acidic foods were more likely to have lower bone mineral density."

The Psychology Of Resistance

Cristel Antonia Russell, Ph.D shares a discourse on why individuals psychologically resist being told how to behave and the various extraneous factors that influence this, including cultural differences:

“Reactance is usually activated when we feel that our freedom is threatened. When we perceive that someone or something is trying to influence us to do something against our will, reactance arises. Reactance motivates us to protect our own beliefs and views, and sometimes, to do the opposite of what we’re being asked to do.”

The risk of socioemotional delay associated with physical discipline high

American neuroscientists recently published their study, demonstrating internationally that children who experienced spanking by their caregivers and were deprived of books were negatively impacted developmentally, writes an author in the Elsevier:

"Physical discipline was associated with 50 percent higher odds for risk of socioemotional delay, at least 2.5 times higher than the risk of any of the experiences of cognitive deprivation. Not counting or not reading with the child were associated with 47 percent and 62 percent higher odds, respectively, for risk of cognitive delay. Physical discipline did not confer any risk of cognitive delay.“

Genes influence the tolerance of caffeine

Kelsey Kloss explains the physiological reasons why your morning coffee no longer has it’s intended effect and how to manage your increased caffeine tolerance levels:

"People have different tolerances and responses to caffeine, which is partly influenced by genetics... Consuming caffeine regularly can promote a caffeine tolerance in some people, so that the side effects from caffeine may diminish over time. Because of that, a higher amount needs to be consumed to feel its same stimulant effects, says Mia Syn, RDN.”
