5 Gross things you didn't know about your body

The human body is both beautiful (have you seen J.Lo's?) and disgusting at the same time. The disgusting part is something we don't think much about.

A recent study, just in time for the holiday party season, makes the case that moderate drinking is good for your immune system. Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University got a bunch of rhesus macaques, a monkey whose immune system closely resembles ours, and did some scientific mumbo jumbo to them and then divided them into two groups: one that was allowed to drink booze and one that wasn't. The results are in and the news is good for moderate drinking monkeys and humans, I'm assuming.

Learn the truth about food expiration dates

This also proved that many of us misunderstand the concept of a "Sell by," "Best by" and "Use by" date, which AREN'T indicators of food safety.

Not only are tons of good food being discarded, but many of us are left completely confused.
