Pumpkin Spice Lattes Have Carcinogens In Them, But We Can Change That

Like most people who live on planet Earth, I adore me some Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I never expected the drink to be as healthy as say, kale, but as it turns out, its ingredients give a whole new meaning to the word “junk food.” In the midst of all the pre-autumn pumpkin hype, Vani Hari, the woman behind the healthy living blog Food Babe, is on a public mission to make Pumpkin Spice Lattes healthier. In a post on her blog, she shares an eye-opening list of what’s actually in the beloved PSL. Among lots of icky artificial flavors and preservatives, a serving of the drink includes two doses Caramel Color Level IV, a food coloring that sounds harmless in name but is actually made with ammonia and considered a carcinogen. Hari wants that food coloring taken out of the recipe. She’s also hoping to pressure Starbucks to do away with other harmful additives, offer organic milk at all store locations, and make the ingredients lists for their products publicly available. For a company that goes to great lengths to frame itself as transparent, health-conscious and socially aware, these requests hardly seem extravagant. Keep reading »

Baseball Fans

Summer may be winding down, but there’s still plenty of time to get yourself to a baseball game before the season ends.

Who needs the bar, the beach or a barbecue when you have baseball? Here are some reasons you should spend a day off at the ballpark before the season ends next month. Keep reading »

Beyonce’s Dad Calls Bey And Jay Divorce Rumors A “Jedi Mind Trick”

I'm Confused
So...Is it Fake?

Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles, made an appearance on the Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE this week to make a totally unhelpful contribution to the Bey and Jay divorce rumors. He implied that the Knowles’ family drama, including Elevator-Gate, was nothing but a “Jedi Mind Trick” and that it doubled Solange’s album sales. He also hinted about a potential Destiny’s Child reunion, as if that is even remotely relevant right now. Are Bey and Jay’s marital problems one big publicity stunt, or is Mathew just trying to throw us off? At this point, neither would surprise me. There’s also the possibility that even Bey’s own father is not privy to what’s going on in that family and is just making things up off the top of his head. Thoughts? [Pop Sugar]
