6:45 No Deodorant For Cameron Diaz (April 24, 2014)
Cameron Diaz doesn't believe in wearing antiperspirant but insists that she knows how to avoid giving off b.o. The Body Book author chatted with E! Online at the premiere of The Other Woman on Monday (April 21st) where she revealed her secret to avoiding potent pits.
Cameron explained, "I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years. You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in. Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn't hold onto the scent."
The 41-year-old made headlines recently for vocalizing her opinion that women who get laser hair removal on their pubic hair should consider that being hairless down there is just a recent trend and may not always be in vogue. (<==========Rona's thoughts...um, who cares what she thinks about other people's personal hygiene and body care? This is why I think celebs come across as so self important.)

7:15 POOR TASTE
New research answers an age-old question about why airplane food is so terrible. As it turns out, it’s not the food- it’s you! Scientists say that human taste buds are affected by altitude and dry cabin air. When you’re on a plane at 35,000 feet, your sensitivity to taste is lessened. That explains why most airplane meals taste so…well, tasteless. Guess it’s not such a bad thing that you’re lucky to get a bag of peanuts on most airlines these days.
Speaking of taste...
Ever notice how some foods just taste unhealthy? A study found the texture of food influences our perception of its calorie content. Not only that, but it may also affect how much of that food we end up eating. Specifically, we tend to associate creamy, soft foods- think ice cream or mashed potatoes- with high calorie counts, and hard, rough foods- like raw carrot sticks- with lower calorie counts. It all comes down to fat, which affects food texture by making things smoother, softer and thicker…and more delicious. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/16/food-texture-calories_n_5154228.html?utm_hp_ref=healthy-living
