– Broccoli is [good for undoing diabetes damage](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7541639.stm) as well as [help you help your lungs](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7612813.stm). So, eat more broccoli! It’s one of my favorite vegetables. 🙂 Thankfully, they didn’t say cauliflower.
– Now I know why my wife always gets nightmares. According to [a study done](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7609985.stm) by the University of the West of England, women tend to have more emotional dreams as compared to men. The study also found the women’s sleep tends to be more disrupted.
– And maybe I can counter the nightmares by putting some nice smelling flowers in the room as [this study](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7628744.stm) in Germany found that the flowers caused the volunteers to report experiencing pleasant emotions in their dreams.
– Speaking about scent, my mum-in-law’s favorite scent is lavender. When she stayed in Australia, she had pots of different varieties of lavender. Lavender is about to soothe headaches and aid sleep. And it now has an additional use as a relaxant for people about to go into the dentist room. Researchers [found](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7611862.stm) that the lavender oil scent ‘helped’ dental patients be less anxious about the upcoming treatment. For me, no matter how much lavender oil scent would make me less anxioius about going to a dentist. 🙂
