  • While its true that junk food can be horrible for your health, some snack foods really aren’t that bad, says The Washington Post. For example, pork rinds, which are deep fried pig skins, have zero carbs and good levels of protein and unsaturated fat. Other foods include unsweetened butter and beef jerky, stereotypical “bad foods.” However, the rule still holds that everything is better in moderation.
  • According to, the Food and Drug Administration is revising their regulations for sunscreen. Sunscreen labels will now be clearer. For example, if a product passes both UVB and UVA regulations, it will be labeled “broad spectrum.” Also, products cannot be labeled “sweatproof” or “waterproof.” They will now only be allowed to use the labels “water resistant,” which would last for 40 minutes, and “extra water resisitant,” which would last for 80 minutes.
