We’ve heard about the teenage girl that woke up to her iPhone burning a hole in her sheets but this time it’s even worse. Dionne Baxter, a 24-year old English woman got a rude awakening when she rolled onto her charging iPhone 4 while sleeping and received a severe 5-inch burn on her breast. Baxter said she awoke to serious pain and immediately rushed to the hospital. Due to the fact that she sleeps in the nude, there was no barrier protecting her from the burning hot iPhone. The burn has become infected, leaving Baxter with a large red wound. Despite the obvious heat dangers, doctors say that you should sleep with your iPhone away from you anyways as radiation emissions are known to severely disrupt sleep patterns. Yes, we should not sleep with our iPhones in bed. But why are iPhones getting to a temperature where people are getting severe burns from a mere touch regardless? And why is no one contacting Apple about this? It can’t be normal. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below!
When high-fat and high-calorie foods are consumed regularly, our brain’s ability to regulate hunger cues, and calorie intake gets reduced. A new study has shown evidence of how continuously eating a fatty diet seems to disrupt the neurological pathway between the brain and the gut.
The cells in charge of signaling the brain when we’ve had enough food are called astrocytes. According to new research published in The Journal of Physiology, calorie intake is regulated in the short term by astrocytes (large star-shaped cells in the brain that regulate many different functions of neurons in the brain). Astrocytes also control the signaling pathway between the brain and the gut, a path that can get interrupted by high calorie diets.
