--Drinking an iced beverage before eating chocolate will dull the sweet, creamy or chocolaty taste. The study’s authors suggest that this helps explain why North Americans—who commonly consume iced drinks—eat more highly sweetened foods.
--Downing six to eight glasses of water each day is commonly cited practice to keep skin looking young. But a paper pours cold water on that theory, concluding that more study needs to be done to reach such a scientific conclusion.
