Grandparents’ Enthusiasm In Feeding Their Grandkids Could Be Harmful, Studies Say

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “too much love can kill you,” eh?

It goes without saying that grandparents’ love is second to none. As a matter of fact, latest studies revealed that our loving grandparents are even guilty of spoiling their grandchildren with unhealthy foods and snacks.

Yeah, unfortunately, who would’ve thought that grandparents’ love can be a dangerous thing for the youngsters? Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “too much love can kill you,” eh?

As we all know by now, there’s a running joke on the internet regarding our grandparents spoiling us with unhealthy foods when we were kinds. Unfortunately, the latest studies revealed that in reality, grandparents that spoil their grandchildren too much with foods can impact their health negatively.

Furthermore, grandparents who smoke can also increase the risk of cancer for their grandchildren.

Latest studies also indicated that children that hangout more with their grandparents lack exercise.

According to the studies, the children that usually hang out with their grandparents tend to lack sufficient exercise and physical activities. The experts believe that this is due to the fact that they end up staying indoors instead of playing outside which as we all know is the source of their exercise. The lead author of MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit Dr. Stephanie Chambers said:

While the results of this review are clear that behaviour such as exposure to smoking and regularly treating children increases cancer risks as children grow into adulthood, it is also clear from the evidence that these risks are unintentional.

Furthermore, she also explained:

Currently grandparents are not the focus of public health messaging targeted at parents and in light of the evidence from this study, perhaps this is something that needs to change given the prominent role grandparents play in the lives of children.

Well, that’s a bit terrible to hear. But truth be told, at least we can all agree that these all happened because of their unconditional love. We can’t actually blame our loving grandparents for that.

Dog Acts Weird Around Pregnant Owner, Apparently She’s Trying To Save Her

Dogs are apparently capable of detecting illnesses with a sniff, and this pup used her ability to save her owner from death.

All the while we thought that dogs can only be trained to sniff bombs and drugs. Apparently, they can also act as live MRIs that can detect serious health problems hiding beneath your skin. There are no scientific explanations yet or studies that claim dogs can smell illnesses, but this pup surely had some amazing way of saving her human from a deadly health condition.

Keola, an American Akita, seems to have a strong sixth sense which helped her detect her owner’s hidden sickness. She obsessively followed her owner, Alhanna Butler who happened to be pregnant that time. Nothing could calm Keola until her owners grew suspicious of her behavior. Thanks to her persistence in sending signals, Keola was able to help Alhanna and her baby escape from death.

A mom-to-be and her son were saved from death, thanks to their loyal pup named Keola.

Biochemist And Ex-NASA Worker Became The First Person To Edit His Own Genes

Josiah Zayner is selling DIY gene-editing kits.

Cosmetic surgery is becoming a popular method these days if people want to change something they don't like or enhance a feature that they currently have. But for biochemist/biohacker Josiah Zayner, all it takes is CRISPR, a DNA-editing technique, which he showed to the world to be so easy to do.

Zayner, who used to work at NASA, happened to explain the process live on his blog, "Science, Art, Beauty. According to him, he already modified his genes twice. Using the gene-cutting technology, Zayner removed myostatin, a protein that inhibits the growth of muscles. By removing the protein, Zayner, in theory, would have bigger muscles.

The ex-NASA employee is also the founder of a genetic engineering firm called The Odin.
