Ugg boots — the cozy footwear beloved by celebs — could be causing women serious knee injuries, warns a top surgeon. The comfy shoes don’t offer enough support, says Ian McDermott, and could cause “knock-kneed” stance. He said he did not specifically have a gripe with Ugg boots, but with any soft boot — due to the lack of support. The expert said this style of boot can lead to a bad posture, knee pain and even back pain, which could need surgery to tackle. McDermott, a knee surgeon in London, said: “This is a bit of a ‘red flag’ and a sign that it’s potentially worth investigating the knee with X-rays and an MRI scan to check exactly what is going on inside the joint. “Sheepskin boots and high heels may look great, but vanity may come at the cost of potential physical damage to your body.”

Whichever is your choice, eat them all day long. The term pickle comes from the Dutch word pekel, meaning brine. In the United States, the word pickle typically refers to a pickled cucumber. Each year in the United States, 5,200,000 pounds of pickles are consumed. Use #NationalPickleDay to post on social media.

A new Gallup poll is proving what many of us have already been grumbling over therapy sessions and oversized glasses of wine for months: 2017 is The Worst™. Overall well-being among adults in the United States “has declined substantially this year,” serving as the biggest year-over-year drop since 2008, Gallup reports. While the Well-Being Index score is only down .6 points from 2016, the drop is “statistically significant and meaningfully large” considering how large of a pool was surveyed. The drop in well-being also seems more than a little intertwined with our current political climate. Democrats had a “significant” decline in well-being this year, and women dropped over a full point in their index score (Republicans’ score and men’s score is unchanged).
- Are you looking forward to 2018 because 2017 has been horrible?
