Things We Learned in 2016
Geege Schuman stashed this in TIL
1. The world’s most-used natural resource (apart from water and air) is sand — and it’s disappearing.
Still amazing that sand is disappearing.
Not for weight loss, only for cardio.
It also seems like what we eat affects weight loss more than how much we exercise.
10. Thirteen of the 14 contestants in Season 8 of “The Biggest Loser” have regained weight in the six years since the competition, and four are heavier now than before the contest. The results show why the body fights back hard against major weight loss.
My least fave.
39. In 1940, a child born into the average American household had a 92 percent chance of making more money than his or her parents. For Americans born in 1980 – today’s 36-year-olds – that figure dropped to 50 percent.
