The White House has a plan to get birth control to Hobby Lobby workers

The White House will make two changes to Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate on Friday.

UV light shows hidden damage the sun is doing to your skin

Artist Thomas Leveritt set up a UV camera and a screen on the street and asked passersby if they wanted to check themselves out with it. The result, as you can see, was lots of freckles (and plenty of other hidden marks).
The next big surprise came when Leveritt offered them some sunscreen. Since the lotion blocks UV rays, you can see much more clearly how protective a layer can be. Watch how surprised the participants are at the difference.

Aspirin may be the easiest way to prevent cancer

 A new paper in Annals of Oncology has demonstrated that simple taking an aspirin a day may help substantially reduce the risk of cancer.
As long as patients don’t have blood disorders (serious stomach bleeding is a potential concern), take blood thinning medication or are heavy drinkers or smokers, doctors think that the benefits outweigh the harms. and that the evidence demonstrates aspirin could be a major tool in the anti-cancer arsenal.
