  1. You can lose 5 pounds a year just by drinking 2 liters of water a day! Drinking water speeds your metabolism. In fact, you start to burn fat after you drink just two glasses.
  2. People who drive when they're tired are responsible for 1,500 deaths and 40,000 injuries a year. And in a recent survey, more than one-third of drivers admitted to dozing off behind he wheel at least once. A drowsy driving accident usually occurs when the driver has had less that 6 hours sleep in the last 24 hours, and has been driving for less than 3 hours.
  3. Finally, according to the New York Times, right-handed people DON'T live longer than lefties. This contradicts a 1991 study that found that lefties are more accident-prone, because the world caters more to right-handers. But recent studies show that right and left handed people have similar life-spans.
