‘Tech Neck’ Should Replace ‘Turkey Neck’

Everyone is blaming smartphones out of all the bads in the world, at least in terms of some particular health issues that can come about. Their most recent fault is in creating physical appearance issues. Namely, the hours spent looking down at a smartphone or laptop enhances the wrinkles on the neck stated Brad Reifler.

Dr. Ed Williams says that young people spending a year at the station every day and killing time with a game on the smartphone would notice the effect very soon. The 10-12 pound head pointed downwards speeds up the tear of the muscles. Women are great at taking care of their faces, but many of them ignore the necks. Hence, the salonists said that their recent job is to deal with ‘tech necks’, and that can replace the term of ‘turkey necks’ to be up to date.

Switching off all the tech and staying away from the civilization is not a solution. Keeping the head straight is. It seems that the long advised idea of placing the computer at the level of the eyes, so that one would have to look forward and not downward, is not only beneficial for the eyesight but can save us from the ‘tech necks’ too.

Human Waste Has Always Been A Problem Atop Everest

The very top of Mount Everest from the final base camp to the summit is filled with human waste and corpses that must be cleared every year. The Sherpas that have been to the peak over and over with their charges go up every year and clear the dead bodies and trash as best they can. They are natives of the land, and they work hard to keep the summit clear ModernHealthcare reported.

However, more and more people are going up to the leak. They are leaving more and more trash at the top, and they are going to keep polluting the area until something is done. The problem with Everest is that only a select few people can go up to the summit when they like, and even those Sherpas are in a lot of danger when they go up there. The summit cannot have trash cans on it, but something is going to have to be done to quell the trash that is found up there. Without some kind of system, the Nepali government fears that the whole summit could be polluted in ways that they will not be able to fix. This could shut down the world’s most famous peak.
