There's been a lot of talk recently about what kind of ingredients are actually in many sanitary pads. Some individuals express that they feel like the switch to organic sanitary pads and tampons has reduced their cramps and maybe have even shortened their period! Aside from the awesome benefits of shorter periods, less cramps and better overall health for your nether-regions, many people are switching from mainstream menstrual methods to more organic ones to be kinder on the environment– many of our own customers have expressed that they SWEAR by menstrual cups, which while it's a hefty initial investment, totally pays for itself in just a few cycles! We'd love to know what you think: what's your favorite form of menstrual hygiene?

Did you know spleens can multiply? If your spleen happens to get hurt, and parts of the spleen end up in other parts of your abdomen, the spleen cells can regenerate into mini-spleens if there are enough blood vessels around to feed them. About one in five people have these so-called "accessory spleens," and they are waaay better for your immune system than say, a necklace.

Want some accessory spleens for yourself? Be sure to check out I Heart Guts for Spleen Lapel Pins, Spleen Socks, Spleen Erasers and Spleen Plush for all of your gifting needs!

It happens because people make decisions that are sometimes very impulsive and of the moment, but those moments are cumulative realities" -Marsha P. Johnson . Can anyone recommend us any LGBTQ+ docs?

Dead bodies are so yesterday. Medical students in the past have had to resort to all sorts of hi jinks, to get their hands on a hard body due to chronic shortages of human cadavers. The future of 3D printing may change all that, now that it's grown to include 3D Printing of human bodies. The bodies are made using plastic or a powder that resembles plaster, and of course don't require expensive refrigeration. So if you're thinking of giving your body to science when you're gone, just know a 3D printer might beat you to it
