    Flying long-haul? This is how to beat the dreaded jetlag

    Resetting your body clock to tick along with the time of new destination can be tough, and no-one wants to lose any precious holiday time feeling groggy. Jet lag occurs when you travel quickly across more than two times zones leading to confusion between your internal body clock and the local time – and it’s worse when you travel eastwards because we lose time. Prepare your body clock by going to bed and getting up an hour earlier each day for a few days before.

    A glass of red wine a day may actually help you get pregnant

    A new study has found that, contrary to popular belief, a daily glass of red wine may actually boost your fertility.

Overhydration is the most common electrolyte imbalance in hospitals, occurring in about two percent of all people, Calapai says.

Upon seeing the eczema that covers my arms and hands, he pointed and asked with disdain, ‘What is that?’" said the 30-year-old Canadian in a Facebook post describing the incident.  “I was taken aback but am accustomed to people asking questions about my condition, so I replied 'It’s eczema, it’s a chronic skin condition I was born with.’"  When the agent continued to express disgust and suspicion, asking Loh whether it was contagious and suggesting she was required to carry a doctor’s note permitting her to fly, she began to grow frustrated and offended.
