    Light Roast vs. Dark Roast Coffee: Which Has More Caffeine?
    Millions of Americans begin each morning with a cup of coffee.

    Cleansing Your Colonic Palate

    Cleansing Your Colonic Palate
    I know it's unnatural for women to become obsessed and fascinated by bowel movements, but I am. Really. I can't believe I'm actually putting this out there for the world to read.
