Three New Things to Worry About
#1.) It's been a while since a 'CELL PHONES CAUSE CANCER' study, but here we go. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, says cell phones MIGHT be a carcinogen that MIGHT be linked to cancer.
Of course, your genetic makeup and how long you're exposed are the real reasons why ANY carcinogen would give you cancer . . . from phones to pesticides to coffee. So take this for what it's worth.
#2.) Does FACEBOOK MAKE YOU LESS FRIENDLY? In a new British survey, two out of three people said they regularly interact with people on Facebook who they'd never interact with in real life.
70% also said they think basic conversation and friendliness is DYING because of texting, emailing, and social media.
#3.) How can the number be this high? According to an American Red Cross survey, 21% of Americans, or one in five, SAY THEY'RE FAIR OR POOR SWIMMERS. 3% can't swim at all.
About 78% of people say they plan to do at least one water-related recreational event this summer.
