@nrohrbacher @nicole1 Thanks so much for reading this and for sharing your story. I'm happy to hear that you found something that works for you. I am not commuting anymore and I am beyond relieved. There's more time to sleep, workout, cook, and relax. As much as I know commuting was the right decision for me for a period of time, I am thrilled it is over.

@DannielleFlaherty Hi Dannielle! Great question. From what we've read around the web, it's best to store these in an airtight container for just a few days. Hope that helps!

@Misty610 Hi Misty, the researchers actually deem two 5 oz. glasses of wine (daily) as heavy drinking.

@johnqdoe @KarenTO1 Thank you both for reading and commenting. Because we've received quite a few similar comments regarding this title, we've tweaked it so as not to offend any other readers. We of course never intended to illicit misogynistic thoughts or mislead our audience. Apologies for giving that impression.
@ThePrimalYogi Thank you for reading! There absolutely are benefits to commuting, but I have to admit that there have been quite a few technical difficulties with trains leading to extreme delays and intermittent service in the last 6 months since I wrote this. Definitely something to consider!

@RightPhase You're welcome!
@ElizabethE @nicole1 @mc123 Appreciate your feedback, Elizabeth! We will certainly keep this in mind. Our intention was definitely not to incense readers.
@mc123 Thank you! We're always grateful for diligent readers :) The current excerpt (the blurb below the title which shows up on the homepage and in a google search) mentions brain function and cognitive decline, so hopefully readers will pick up on that when reading both. We're always up for title debate especially considering our editorial team constantly works to balance humor, the Greatist voice, and accuracy to create a compelling way to lead readers into a story.
@Brad.Wolfe Thanks for reading, Brad! To characterize long-term alcohol consumption patterns, the researchers calculated mean alcohol consumption over 10 years for each participant via questions (in three separate questionnaires) on frequency of alcohol consumption over the previous year and questions on the number of alcoholic drinks consumed in the last 7 days. The drinks were then converted into grams of alcohol consumed per week, then divided by 7 to yield the average daily consumption of 36 grams (or about 2 drinks). According to this method, the researchers may consider heavy weekend drinking (likely in combination with lighter weekday drinking) as heavy drinking. It's important to note, though, that these questionnaires were self-reported and certainly have room for error. Hope that clears things up!
@mc123 Thank you for reading and weighing in! The current title is meant to convey (in a light and silly way) that this study associated daily drinking with decreased brain function and memory decline — i.e. making men's brains work "worse" than women's (when 2 drinks a day are involved). The study and the title do not refer to overall intelligence. Sorry for any confusion!
@michaeljshore Thanks, Michael! Definitely a new approach to get people recycling. Glad you like it!

@jclaeys Currently, we don't have the resources to provide calorie counts for our big lists. We would certainly love to update these in the future with nutritional information. Thanks for reading!

@Llowmiller Thanks so much for weighing in on this topic. In comparison to antiperspirants (and the many dangerous/irritating ingredients we researched here: http://greatist.com/health/are-antiperspirants-bad-me), this homemade deodorant is arguably safer for some people. We've added in the correction "or arrowroot powder" which is not linked to possible yeast infections. Thank you!

@norwaytova The entire Greatist team organizes this list.
@PatrickRose1 Greg was on our preliminary list, but did not make the cut based on all of our criteria for the final list.
@ChristineHydeCassar Totally see where you're coming from, Christine. I guess Tony was not the best example. But for many of these influencers it's their reach, accessibility, and motivation that puts them so high on the list. While Jillian Michaels and Tracy Anderson may not have the degrees other trainers have, she's had the opportunity to influence millions of people to live happier, healthier lives (whether or not everyone agrees with the way they train or the type of fitness they promote).

@ChristineHydeCassar Absolutely true, Christine. Tony Robbins, for instance, never graduated college. Does that make him any less influential? For ranking purposes, yes. But where he faltered, other criteria were very strong.
@ChristineHydeCassar Hi Christine. Certifications and degrees are only a part of the puzzle. When degrees and certs are lacking for some influencers, other criteria ranks higher (earning them a spot on this list). We do not give points for "honorary" degrees.
