Spray-On Pumpkin Spice
It’s the season of “pumpkin spice everything,” and we are well into it at this point (as you probably know if you’ve been anywhere near a Starbucks in the last couple of weeks). And with each year comes a new pumpkin spice produce it seems. The newest pumpkin spice product? It’s actually a pumpkin spice spray – making it easier for you to put pumpkin spice on pretty much anything.
Simple Beyond’s Pumpkin Spray-On Spice is about $11 and works like cooking spray. The spray is made of essential oils of the usual spices found in a pumpkin mixture like cinnamon and nutmeg. So now instead of having to use the ACTUAL spices, you can just whip out a can of this stuff and literally spray away. Too far? Probably. But they’ll make pumpkin spice ANYTHING these days.

Binge Watching TV Could Be Killing You
These days it isn’t uncommon to spend a weekend sitting on the couch binge-watching your favorite TV shows. Thing is, that may sound like a perfect way to spend your days off, but it may be killing you.
A new study out of Australia suggests all that binge watching could increase a person’s risk of dying from inflammatory diseases like Alzheimer’s and diabetes. The study, published in the journal of "Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise," says that for every hour a person spends watching TV the risk of getting one of these diseases goes up 12%, and watching four hours a day puts you most at risk.
What’s more, those who watch between two and four hours of TV a day have a 54% higher risk of inflammatory-related death. “People should be attempting to sit less and move more throughout their day because we do believe there are health benefits,” says study author Dr. Megan Grace. “TV time was associated with increased risk of inflammatory-related mortality. This is consistent with the hypothesis that high TV viewing may be associated with a chronic inflammatory state.”
