    The retail giant will no longer segregate toys for girls and for boys, the company announced last Friday, to eliminate the gender-biased signs in some of its department sections such as toys, home, and entertainment.

    4. Birth-control pill prevents womb cancers
    Positive effects such as having clearer skin have been associated with the Pill. Now, add to that "cancer protection". A study published in the journal The Lancet Oncology found that long-term use of contraceptive pills protects a woman from endometrial cancer, which affects the womb; it’s the most common uterine cancer among women. Researchers studied over 130,000 women and found that 10 years of contraceptive use absolutely reduced the risk of developing endometrial cancer before a woman hits 75 years old. The anti-cancer benefits persisted for decades after women stopped taking the pill. (huffingtonpost.com)


    5. Arizona girl first to use cannabis oil legally
    Eleven-year-old Mercedez Gonzales, from Mesa, Arizona, has been suffering from bouts of epilepsy since she was three years old. It was only a high-CBD strain of medical marijuana that helped minimize the frequency of her seizures; her seizures became infrequent enough for her to be able to attend summer camp for the first time. She was very eager to participate and gave her all during the summer camp. Mercedez became the first child to openly use cannabis oil during her summer camp stay sponsored by The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona. (ryot.org)
