Are weighted blankets hot?

It depends. Weighted blankets are heavier, so they have the potential to trap heat and moisture, making a person sleep hotter. However, some weighted blankets are made with breathable material that pulls heat away from the body during sleep, leaving them cooler.


Tomato ketchup was used as medicine for 16 years.

Whether you love it or hate it, this condiment once had a place in the world beyond hotdogs. However, you’d be surprised to know that ketchup only had tomatoes in it starting 1834. Before, ketchup was made with a mix of fish and mushrooms. When Dr. John Cooke Bennet added tomatoes to the mix, he claimed that the antioxidants gave it a medicinal property. He had a pill salesman turn his tomato ketchup into pills and claimed it could treat diarrhea, indigestion, jaundice, and rheumatism.
