Is Salt Actually Good for You?

A new development in the battle against salt is leading some scientists to question whether a low-sodium diet is actually healthy for you.

In a study published Wednesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association, Belgian researches "estimated sodium intake of nearly 3,700 participants, with an average age of about 40, by measuring sodium in their urine at the beginning and end of the study."

What they found was that the people with the lowest amount of sodium intake "had no greater protection against high blood pressure after eight years than those who consumed the highest levels," according to the Boston Globe.

7 Shocking Eating Addictions From TLC’s ‘My Strange Addiction’ [VIDEOS]

Earlier this year, the TV show 'My Strange Addiction' (Wednesdays on TLC) featured a woman who has one of the strangest addictions we have ever seen. Adele is a 30-year-old who likes to eat couch cushions. She doesn't just chew on them, she actually eats them. When added all up, she has eaten a combined total of seven couches and two chairs in her lifetime.

We were so fascinated by this truly strange addiction that we decided to look for more footage of unusual eating addictions that they've had on the show. We certainly found them.

You can watch all 7 of them after the jump.

If Fortune Cookies Were Only Real Fortunes

My wife Lori and I went to eat at THE WOK recently.  We eat there often.  Love the place.  I do have one gripe about what folks call fortune cookies though.  And that is they really aren't fortune cookies.  I call them ADVICE COOKIES! :) I don't think I've ever gotten a cookie with a real fortune inside!  Anyway, here's why I think the way I do about them:

Ever Drink Sour Milk?

I am one to always check the date on the milk carton.  When it's date time, out it goes.  Probably due to the fact that I never used to check dates, or smell the milk for that fact.  I was just one who stood at the fridge,  popped the top and drank from the carton, only this one time...
