This week at Yellow Gazebo has been very interesting; we covered a few interesting topics. Here’s a summary of the great posts we shared this week:
“7 More Trendy Superfoods That Are Anything But” By Sofia Barrett-Ibarria
Some of the hippest health foods make the murkiest claims about their benefits and ethical sourcing. This article takes a closer look at trendy health food products and shows that they are not as close to perfection as their marketing suggests.
“This Hand Dryer Study Will Have You Saying Ewww” By David Freeman
A new study from England found that while hand dryers were good at drying hands, the use of high velocity air meant that the dispersed water droplets (containing more or less bacteria/viruses) will be fired longer distances and some will remain suspended in the air for many minutes. Definitely an article worth reading.

With winter around the corner here was one life hack we found immensely useful: how to walk on ice without slipping.
