The next time you cook or eat a piece of chicken, be sure to leave some of the skin on. For years, nutritionists and heart doctors have advised us to remove this fattening part of the bird before enjoying it, but as it turns out, chicken skin really isn’t as bad as was originally believed.

In addition to making cooked chicken juicier and more flavourful, chicken skin contains a good amount of heart healthy unsaturated fat. In fact, the majority of fat in chicken skin is unsaturated, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Consumption of unsaturated fat is believed to be associated with lowered bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

However, there is no mistaking that chicken skin is fattening, so, whether or not you are watching your weight, you should not eat too much of it.

There is a complex mechanism that goes behind every single laser; just like any high-tech equipment, quality matters. This is why a Ferrari will outrun a Proton Saga every time, even though both are essentially cars. “I was told by my doctor that the RF facial is the same as the Thermage as both are radiofrequency devices, but the truth is in the pudding. After 5 sessions of RF facials, I did not see the difference I saw from 1 session of Thermage” explained Sarah, a travel blogger in Singapore.

But the lure of lower prices is always attractive, and the lack in results is often explained away by the doctor persuading his or her patients to do more sessions to gain the same effect as the original laser. However that principle isn’t sound! Not all effects of lasers are additive in that way, when a laser system is under-powered and does not effect the same type of cellular changes in one session, it doesn’t matter if you repeat the same treatment one time or one hundred times.
