If you’re the type who just CAN’T put down that bag of potato chips until it’s gone, you’re not alone. Not only that, science is now telling us the problem isn’t you, it’s the junk food. In fact, after a series of studies, a University of Michigan professor says that ultra-processed foods, or UPFs, are just as addictive as nicotine, cocaine or heroin — and more than 1 in 10 of us are hooked. Prof. Ashley Gearhardt, who created the Yale Food Addiction Scale by applying the same criteria that experts use to diagnose substance addiction, says her analysis of 281 studies across 36 countries found that a staggering 14% of adults are hooked on UPFs. Examples of ultra-processed foods include sausage, ice cream, soft drinks, and sugary cereals. Even worse, eating these foods has been linked to cognitive decline, cancer, psychological distress and even early death. Why do we become addicted to junk food? Eating ultra-processed foods triggers a rush of dopamine followed by a sudden drop-off, resulting in an endless cycle of craving, getting a fix and crashing — similar to that of someone who is addicted to alcohol or drugs.

one bathroom item that’s even dirtier than your toilet – and
you’ll never guess what it is. Experts are telling us we should be
washing our bathmats every week or two. Rikki Fothergill, a cleaning
expert from the e-commerce company Big Bathroom Shop, said: “A
survey found a third admitted to washing their mats just two times a
year”. And a study found that the bathmat has even more bacteria
than a toilet seat. Frequent washing is especially important as we
approach winter, in order to maintain a mold-free bathroom

Pete Davidson is perfecting his Kenan Thompson impression, just in time for his “Saturday Night Live” homecoming. After being shut down by the Hollywood writers’ strike in May, the sketch show is returning for season 49, with Davidson hosting the season premiere October 14th. Taking his job very seriously in a new promo video, Davidson munches on chips and announces his return to SNL cast members Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman. And most importantly, he tries out his Kenan impression by mimicking one of the comedian’s famously meme-able facial expressions. After striking a pose, he tells Yang and Fineman, “That was my Kenan face.” LINK: https://youtu.be/Ekia3_AOmGY
Ken Jeong is looking to get into daytime. “The Masked Singer” judge is developing a talk show, with a projected 2024 launch. He recorded a test show in New York on Friday. The show is being developed and produced under the SAG Network Code, which allows actors and hosts to work on certain projects, including daytime talk shows during the actors strikes. Jim Biederman, who produced “The Kids in the Hall”, is serving as showrunner, writer and director, and is exec producing alongside Jeong.
The Swifties have taken over the box office — as expected. “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” earned $39 million on its opening day Friday, just shy of the $39.3 million October opening day record set by “Joker” in 2019. With that kind of start, Swift’s concert film has a chance to beat the October opening weekend record also held by “Joker” at $96.2 million. Some industry estimates have the film netting an opening weekend of about $103 million once all the numbers are in. 82% of Friday’s audience were women, and 63% in the 18-34 age group.

Chemical engineers are pioneering a process to equip ships with the onboard capacity to turn collected plastic garbage into fuel. The result has been named “blue diesel” and would save time, money, and emissions in both the trips necessary for ocean-cleaning vessels to reach the mainland to offload, and in running fuel use. As you may know, millions of tons of plastic enter oceans every year and accumulate where several currents meet. Scientists at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts say they have come up with “a specialized reactor that converts harvested waste plastic using an innovative chemical process…This compresses the plastic at high temperature and high pressure into “blue diesel”.
