Health, while important, is easily shoved to the back burner. Convenience is frequently chosen over health, which is why fast food chains have continued to be a popular choice for meals. Films such as Super Size Me and many other food related documentaries on Netflix have to offer, people should be inspired to eat better and keep their health in check.

Are Mobile Devices Destroying Your Body? [infographic]

Though most of my peers are tightly chained to their devices, few of us seem to grasp that. Being truly chained to convenience, most cannot see the parasite for what it is.

Of course, mobile technology has its uses. It’s even ridiculous to point that out. But have you ever felt a distinct repulsion from your mobile phone? Perhaps your delicate eyes, when confronted by the screen, were offended by the fluorescent, hypnotic glare. ..

If you’ve ever felt at a complete distance from your phone, there are some very good, proven reasons that explain this aversion.

Listed below are the insidious, detrimental effects of those seemingly helpful sidekicks.
Personally, I’ve been very aware of the effects of screens on my eyes for a long time. My cave-fish blindness and light sensitivity has heightened my awareness of the raw fire of the screen since cell phones were ever around me.

In fact, as the infographic illustrates, such screens manage to attack all of our senses. Read on to clarify exactly what your plastic “friend” is doing to you. (via)

Crazy McDonald’s Items [infographic]

I’ve honestly never really been a fan of McDonalds. But the fact it is that everyone else in the world is. McDonalds is everywhere thanks to tasty food and smart marketing. It’s the largest chain of fast food restaurants and takes the throne of all corporate giants.  You’ll find a Mcdonalds in almost every country or state that you visit, and once you see those golden arches, you know that your home to your beloved Big Mac. Or are you?

Turns out, McDonalds menu options vary by state and country. You won’t find a Cheese Katsu in America, but you’ll find the fried pork sandwich stuffed with cheese available in Asia. Even the McDonalds in Germany features beer on their menu!

Some of the items in this infographic are failed menu items, but it would be great to bring some of them back! I would defiantly like to try McDonalds take on pizza, appropriately named, The McPizza. If anything this infographic should inspire you to try new foods as you venture out of you home state. Instead of venturing out to some hole in the wall to try some new cuisine, you can just stroll over to the nearest McDonalds and see what they have to offer. Bon appetite! [via]
