Soy milk is a common replacement for dairy milk, and if you follow a vegan diet, you might be very familiar with it. You can include soy milk in your everyday drinks, such as cereal, coffee, and even smoothies. It offers your body plenty of benefits, including protein and calcium, and if you are lactose intolerant, even better. However, if you have any allergies or take medication, it’s advisable to consult with your doctor first before making any changes to your diet.
Humans and chimps are more similar to each other than men and women. This is so...untrue. In fact, men and women can be about 99.7% similar. But, man, that 0.3% makes us quite different and adds some specific features to our lives.
Most of the differences between men and women are more than obvious and are known by pretty much everyone. You don’t need us to tell you that women have more fat than men because they need it. But when it comes to the lesser-known facts, you can count on us to get our facts straight and to let you in on it.
Every single thing in our bodies is influenced by our gender, from our cells to our organs. Not only is this because men and women have different hormones, but also because the cells in our bodies interpret DNA distinctively, and ultimately decide our gender for us.
Loving someone and falling in love can make us experience a ton of contrasting feelings that are often too complex to put into words. That’s where the ’’biology of love’’ can come in handy to help us understand why we feel the way we do. American anthropologist and researcher in the field of romantic relationships, Helen Fisher, has come up with an interesting theory based on the belief that not all love is experienced equally and that romantic love can be broken down into 3 different types.
While most of us have fine, light hair covering our faces, some women may notice that this hair can be thicker and coarser. This condition is known as hirsutism, and women suffering from it have more visible excess body and facial hair. Although there are many ways to get rid of annoying hair on your face, being proactive and avoiding the factors that might be causing this hair to grow can save you many trips to the beauty salon.
There is the question of whether the best things come in small or large packages. The truth is, there are several studies that prove that height can predict personality traits related to a woman’s career and personal development.

Beauty and intelligence are unrelated. But some people can unknowingly be influenced by the “halo effect,” a bias that lends good-looking people positive traits, like being smarter or more agreeable. However, appearance does have any meaning in terms of personality — it’s all in the face, morphologically speaking.
Pregnancy and childbirth bring about a lot of physical and psychological changes in the new mother’s body, but it turns out that men can experience a wide spectrum of bodily and mental changes when becoming dads too. A hormonal and emotional roller coaster, a strong affection for the new baby, anxiety, and depression, and even pregnancy symptoms — it may sound unbelievable, but this is what many men go through when their kids are born.
If you still think exercising before bed messes up your sleep, you might want to reconsider. Science backs up evening workouts and proves that they’re just as healthy and efficient as morning ones. Give exercising before bed a try and you’ll notice that it won’t leave you tossing and turning. Since not all of us have time for morning workouts, read on to discover the benefits of exercising at night.
Fatigue, nausea, and reflux are some of the symptoms a woman can expect to have during certain stages of her pregnancy. What she may not expect is that her partner could possibly also develop some of these, all the more so because men cannot get pregnant. But even if that’s the case, men can actually experience some of the discomforts that women have when pregnant. In fact, not only is this a fact, but it’s much more common than what you might think.
Onions, despite being one of the more basic ingredients in our pantry, are rich in vitamins and have great health benefits. Actually, its properties are much more effective if you eat them raw, but if cooked, this bulb still holds important benefits for our bodies.
Typically, the unwanted growth of facial hair on women happens because of high levels of androgens (like testosterone) in their bodies. These strands aren’t necessarily dangerous to your health but you may want to remove them, and there are many options you can choose from, like electrolysis, laser removal, or waxing. But many of these techniques can be expensive and even painful.
Nobody messes with momma: this is a simple truth that everybody knows. Unfortunately, the same thing cannot always be said about dads. Animal fathers, especially, have a spotty reputation, considering the abundance of “deadbeat dads” and “cannibal dads” among them. There are some dads who are a force in their youngsters’ lives and, just like human fathers, some animal dads can make exceptional sacrifices for their families.
Mood and hormonal swings, stress, and dozens of unexpected body changes — this is what pregnancy and childbirth bring to a woman’s life. It is believed that fathers remain unaffected, because they don’t carry babies, and they don’t give birth. Recent studies showed, however, that men also experience hormonal, neurological, and behavioral changes when they welcome their newborn kids into their lives.
Although our appearance comes from genetics, some parts of our body can reveal interesting information about our personalities. Studies have shown that the length the ring finger depends on the levels of testosterone, the male hormone, which you were exposed to in the womb and it can have a direct impact on the formation of the personality.
Traditionally beards are considered to be a sign of masculinity, power, strength, and wisdom. However, in the pursuit of getting a full and radiant beard, many men fail due to the uncontrollable itchiness at the beginning and improper beard care that can make it look lackluster and dull.
Most women of the world worry about their appearance and always want to look perfect. The beauty industry is evolving rapidly but most products are expensive and, most of the time, cosmetic procedures turn out to cost an arm and a leg. The good news is that we can always replace them with budget lifehacks that are often more effective than pricey cosmetic items and salon procedures.
Weight gain is often associated with overeating and can be caused by various hormones going berserk. While gaining weight is easy, losing it is not. Various triggers like stress, age, genes, and poor lifestyle choices can cause a hormonal imbalance leading to obesity.
Scientists have declared that physiognomy, the art of reading character from faces, is a fake science. However some researchers have proven that a face can deliver very important information about our personality. Carmen E. Lefevre from the University College London assures us that appearance is the product of genes, hormones, and lifestyle. This is why a human’s face can really be a mirror into our soul.
