    Don’t be fooled by the lab coats and test tubes – the rise of Andrew Huberman was driven by men who want to feel more masculine

    Andrew Huberman, a Stanford University scientist, is currently being "cancelled". An NY Mag article was published last week which outlined how Huberman skillfully managed to maintain relationships with 6 women at the same time without any of them knowing. First of all, let me get something straight - as far as I can tell, Huberman has done nothing illegal here, and some of the reactions I've seen to what he's been up to have seemed a tad overblown to me.

    Are Electrolyte Drinks Good For you & Should You Drink Them Every Day?
