why is black licorice good for you

LIVESTRONG. COM Last Updated: Jan 28, 2015 Licorice is more than just a flavoring of candy. For hundreds of years the extract of the root of the licorice plant, from which the flavoring is derived, has been used in traditional medicine and continues to be used today for a variety of medicinal applications. In fact, due to potential effects on the body, licorice candy is now more likely to be flavored with anise. Licorice extract is frequently suggested for treating peptic ulcers and may have similar results, when used in conjunction with antacids, to that of some prescription drugs. Licorice may also relieve symptoms of indigestion and may be helpful in treating gastro-esophageal reflux disorder, or GERD. Licorice extract is sometimes used together with peppermint and chamomile to help

 why does soda explode in the freezer

why does soda explode in the freezer

Why Does Soda Explode in Freezers? Soda is made up almost entirely of water and a soda bottle explodes in the freezer because of the way water behaves. Due to the motion of molecules, most substances contract when they are cooled, but water expands as it freezes. The force of the expansion is enough to burst most containers, including soda bottles and cans. Ice, the Exception Water is unusual in that it expands when to freezing temperatures. The hydrogen atoms in a water molecule are attracted to the oxygen atoms in neighboring water molecules, forming a rigid, crystalline structure. This structure takes up more space than free-moving water molecules do, causing the ice to expand. This is why ice floats on water; the density of ice is lower than water, causing it to rise to the top. The

 why does life on land require an ozone layer

why does life on land require an ozone layer

Well, we don't know that it was critical to the formation of life on land. what we do know is that the ozone layer was critical to the formation of -our- kind of life on land, because the ozone layer screens the Earth's surface from ultraviolet radiation, which would fry life as we know it. (Other kinds of life could in theory have been created that could only live under harsh ultraviolet light) Even under the ozone layer, ultraviolet radiation from the Sun will kill you if your skin is exposed to it for too long. (Sunburn is just a small part of this killing process. and even then, people die from skin cancers caused by bad sunburn - which is really ultraviolet cooking) One billion years ago, early aquatic organisms called blue-green algae began using energy from the Sun to split

 why does the moon have no gravity

why does the moon have no gravity

The Moon's Gravity - How much you would weigh on the moon? Your weight on the moon is a function of the moon's gravity. First, we know that gravity is a force that attracts all physical objects towards each other (but why this happens is largely unknown! ). Second, the greater the mass of an object, the stronger the force of gravity. The moon is 1/4 the size of Earth, so the moon's gravity is much less than the earth's gravity, 83. 3% (or 5/6) less to be exact. Finally, "weight" is a measure of the gravitational pull between two objects. So of course you would weigh much less on the moon. Imagine how far you could jump on the moon! The Apollo astronauts apparently had fun :-) Your Weight On The Moon If you were to take a scale to the Moon and stand on it, here's what it would say: We

 why does my boyfriend cheated on me

why does my boyfriend cheated on me

Cheating. P This is not an every-guy thing, you know. Lots of boyfriends are honest, they keep to their promises, and they do not cheat. When it is time for a dating relationship to end, they end it and move on. In other words, they don t start something with another girl while they are still in a dating relationship. Some of you girls are already thinking On what planet do those guys live? I ve never known a guy like that, at least one that I would be attracted to.

 why do some rats have red eyes

why do some rats have red eyes

If you ve been around pet rats, you are probably familiar with the white rat. The white rat is either going to be a Pink Eyed White or a Black Eyed White; but there is also the Odd Eye White as well. The Odd Eyed rodent is an interesting creature, and I myself have always wanted one. They have one dark eye, and one pink eye. The dark eye could be black, or ruby. White furred rats are a unique derivative of the, as is the rest of the majority of the pet fancy rat population. Is The White Rat Considered an Albino? As a matter of fact, it would be considered an albino. If the rat is solid white without any pigment, with completely pink skin and bright red (pink) eyes, it is in fact an albino. However, there are nearly white rats who may have a spot or two of color, but still maintain mostly

 why do people visit the peak district

why do people visit the peak district

In 1951 the Peak National Park became the first National Park in Britain. It covers 1,438 square kilometres (555 square miles) of beautiful and often wild countryside from the high (636m above sea level) moorlands in the north to the green farmland in the south. The great majority of the National Park is still in private ownership and most of it is farmed. The earliest travellers to the Peak District did not appreciate the natural landscape of mountain and moorland. The 7 Wonders of the Peak were described first in 1636, but Daniel Defoe, travelling in 1725 described the moors above Chatsworth as. Gradually the taste for wild scenery grew and Ruskin enjoyed the clefts, glens and dingles of the Peakland dales just as modern visitors do. The Peak District National Park is now one of the

 why does my groin smell so bad

why does my groin smell so bad

Hi everyone, I havenГввt posted in quite a while. My situation may sound funny, but my question/ concern is serious. How can I get rid of, or lessen body odor in my groin? Shaving is a little too high maintenance for me, although IГввve done so in the past. It seems as if the odor has gotten stronger in the past month or two. This is strange to me because in my mind, I shouldnГввt sweat as much in cooler weather. I expect to sweat a lot in the summer. I shower everyday; at least once a day in the fall/winter, sometimes twice a day, and in the summer, twice a day. I also wear powder. When showering, I use a wash cloth for my parts; however, I donГввt scrub too hard. ...
