Fruits & Veggies Knowledge!

Everything in moderation. That includes your fruits and vegetables. A study followed the eating habits of more than 100,000 people for 30 years. The ones who ate five servings of fruits and vegetables a day lived longer. So far so good. But the study also found that eating more of those did you no good at all. It didn't hurt you...but packing on additional servings of fruits and veggies had no benefit. The perfect amount, they say is three vegetable servings and 2 fruit servings a day... Sadly only 1 in 10 people eat that much produce a day.

50 of the Best Pods to Listen to

 Have you heard all the buzz about podcasts but never really understood what they actually are? Podcasts are free audio programs distributed over the Internet. You can download them and listen to them as you please, essentially creating a radio station focused entirely on the topics you want to listen to. There are podcasts out there covering almost any topic that you can imagine – and probably dozens of podcasts on that topic.

Because you can choose programs that match your interests and can swap programs in and out as you wish, it becomes much like having a customized radio station for yourself that you can even take with you wherever you go if you have a smartphone.

Check out TIME’s 50 Best Podcasts in the link below!
