This ‘Lucky’ Iron Fish Can Make You Stronger

It might not look like much, but this small iron fish can save lives. Canadian science graduate Dr. Christopher Charles traveled to Cambodia six years ago, where he discovered that anaemia was a huge public health problem.

Instead of finding children enjoying their youthful years, he found kids who were small and weak, often with slow mental development. Mother’s too were suffering.

The “Dr. Seuss House” Towers Over the Alaskan Forest

The locals call it the “Dr. Seuss House”. Far out in the wilds of Alaska, near the town of Willow, stands a tall building in the middle of the forest.
