Hello lovely people, This is going to be my last "traditional" research round, because in the next few weeks I am going to be conducting surveys.

Is it possible to make the MBTI test more reliable? “Personality is qualitative."

I've always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with natural remedies. On one hand the idea of a cold-curing remedy hiding away in the confines of my kitchen cupboard sounds fantastic, but it also sounds fantastical. If modern North American medicine costs so much more than a package of organic ginger tea, why is cold and flu medication so popular? While the Nature Vs Science debate can be a harsh and unforgiving battleground, I've decided to look for answers with a completely open mind.Read More...

VAPING

Trizah Gatuiri (Sweetwaters)
Although e-cigarettes may not be as harmful to one's health as cigarette smoking. vaping is especially damaging to the younger user. most types of e-cigarettes including the most popular brand juul contain nicotine, the addictive drug found in traditional tobacco cigarettes. According to my research i found out that e -cigarettes were developed in part to help adult smokers cut their tobacco use to provide a "healthier" alternative. one problem with vaping is that teens hear that it's not as...Read More...

Hi again! Since we are continuing with this cycle, I have decided to look specifically into two more kinds of alternative medicine. This week, I will look into Ayurveda, what it is, how it works, what it is used to treat, and how it does so. In the next two weeks, I will either be looking into naturopathy or other specific areas such as massage therapy or chiropractic medicine (or all of these!!), depending on how much time I have for research.
