1.) Before you shake hands with anyone today, remember this – a new study concludes that 19 of 20 people don’t wash their hands after they use the bathroom. And, only two out of three people wash their hands with soap after visiting the toilet. Plus, most of those people only washed for about six seconds, not the 15 to 20 that it actually takes to get your hands clean. In all, 15% of men and 7% of women don't wash their hands at all, not even bothering to run a little water over them.
2.) Worried about prostate cancer? There is some good news today. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, men who eat a diet high in vegetable fats, such as those in nuts and olive oil, may be less likely to have their disease spread. Researchers at Duke University found that replacing some carbohydrates with those healthy fats was also tied to a lower risk of dying from any cause during the study. But the opposite was true for saturated and trans fats often found in meat and processed foods.
3.) The next big TV star may be found on the internet. ABC is heading to the net in search of breakthrough talent with the launch of “Make Me A Star.” In the open part of the competition, ABC reviews videos posted on the Make Me A Star website and ABC Casting Facebook page for you and I to vote on. The winner nabs a 6-month $10,000 talent option agreement with the network. Then, the competition turns private, with ABC narrowing down the finalists to a winner in-house. That winner receives a one-year $25,000 talent holding deal with ABC.
