I love my Bottom Line! I have learned about so many things before they made national news through this little periodical. It contains all kinds of financial, health, and miscellaneous information, and each little article is documented so that if you want to know more, you can easily do the research. Some of the information is important, some is completely inconsequential, but interesting.
For example, "...women who wear grapefruit scent appear to men to be about six years younger than they actually are? Scents tested that had no effect: Broccoli, banana, spearmint leaves, and lavender" Now, I ask you, did you know that? This valuable information was obtained from The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.
Did you know that "...a gallon of gas is cheap compared with the cost of a gallon of many household items? Nyquil, the cold remedy, costs $98/a gallon...Right Guard spray deodorant, $57/gallon..." From Consumer Reports Money Adviser
Or that exercise can help you heal 25% faster? The Journal of Gerontology published a study that indicated that of the 28 people who participated in the study and received a "small, but deep puncture wound" - those who began exercising daily healed 25% faster than those who did not.
I love stuff like this. I skip the financial and stock advice completely, but read the health and environmental and ODD articles voraciously.
