A new study reveals that married men tend to be heavier than single dudes. The average married man weighed two and a half pounds more than their single counterparts, with weight increasing not only after saying “I Do,” but after having their first child. The study suggests married men are chubbier because they don’t have to make an effort to attract women, and also because they may eat more due to marital social obligations.

Now that summer is here, many of us like to sport a tan. Some of us go for the faux glow of a self tanner or a spray tan, but others are still opting for the sun to do the work. And believe it or not, one of the newer trends in tanning involves Coca Cola - yep, as in the soda.
Some sunbathers are swapping sunscreen or tanning oil for Coke, lathering up in it before heading out to bake. Why would they do this? It seems the caramel coloring in the soda help turn skin that bronze color they desire.
But don’t try this yourself. Putting Coke all over your skin and laying out in the sun can actually make it easier to burn. Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital explains that the acids in Coke can wash away layers of dead skin cells, letting more ultraviolet light in, making you more likely to burn.
So just drink the soda and if you’re going to be out in the sun, use sunscreen to protect your precious skin. If you want to be a bronzed goddess, stick to self tanners and spray tans. There’s no chance of skin cancer and wrinkles from those!
