Chin Surgery Benefits & Side Effects

Chin Surgery Benefits & Side Effects. Chin surgery skyrockets by 71% in the U.S. With more American career women wanting to look good for video conferencing, and more American male executives wanting to project a strong and decisive CEO-like image, the numbers of ‘chinplants’ — or chin augmentations — carried out in the United States in 2011 have exploding to 20,680.

Lead in Your Lipstick: Are L’Oreal, Maybelline Lipsticks Safe or Harmful?

Is there lead in my lipstick? Yes, there’s lead in your lipstick. The latest update (December 2011) of an U.S Food and Drug Administration analysis of 400 shades of the fastest-selling lipsticks in the United States shows that all 400 of them contain trace amounts of lead.

But will this poison you? Is the amount so tiny that consumers have nothing to be worried about? Or will all those years of applying lipstick several times a day lead to a dangerous accumulation of a dangerous substance?

It seems the jury is still out—despite the fact that the FDA has repeatedly assured consumers that the amounts of lead found in the lipsticks were so tiny and within the limits recommended by global public health authorities for lead in cosmetics, including lipstick.

But instead of just lying there and taking it, Fujifilm’s successfully navigated turbulent waters while we weren’t looking: It’s diversified out of film into — guess what? — skincare and healthcare products.

Blood Concept Perfume: Stupid or Brilliant?

Now, can you get more “organic” than that? What seems to be a modern-day fatal fascination with vampires and blood has just spilled over from the realm of fantasy lit for teens — ”Interview with a Vampire,” the “Twilight series” — and TV fare (“True Blood”) to fashion and…scent.

Yes, scent, or to be more precise: perfumes.

High Heels, Health Risks, Bad Side Effects, & Muscle Stress

High heels stress muscles, pose injury risk—and change the way future women will walk?

If, over the next millennia, women will continue to use high-heeled shoes as modern women do, women in the future may evolve a tottering gait, walking with shorter, more forceful strides than men, with their feet perpetually in a flexed, toes-pointed position.

The long-term consequences of walking this way are yet unknown but will certainly be far-reaching and profound—not unlike the significant outcomes of Australopithecus afarensis hominids beginning to walk upright rather than in a crouched position like their distant cousins, the apes.
