A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

You can’t detox your body. It’s a myth. So how do you get healthy? "Detoxing – the idea that you can flush your system of impurities and leave your organs squeaky clean and raring to go – is a scam. It’s a pseudo-medical concept designed to sell you things." [The Guardian]

The Authenticity Paradox. "Because going against our natural inclinations can make us feel like impostors, we tend to latch on to authenticity as an excuse for sticking with what’s comfortable." [Harvard Business Review]

Could Playing Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” and Other Music Improve Kids’ Brains? "Music practice influenced thickness in the part of the cortex that relates to executive functioning, including working memory, attentional control, as well as organization and planning for the future." [The University of Vermont]

Trendcasting: Foods You (and Your Clients) Will Be Eating in 2015. "Each and every year there are a couple of new foods that become part of our diet repertoire – a few years back it was chia, more recently kale and here a few that you may see a lot more of in 2015." [The Age]
