So do you really lose more heat through your head than anywhere else? Are poinsettias poisonous? Read more here

I know I'm warmer if my head is covered and my feet are warm. It might be a myth, but that's how I am.

I heard that on the new lately. It only goes to prove what ever they tell us is usually proved wrong.
I have heard them go back and forth on Milk, coffee, eggs, vitiam c, and the list goes on.

Now am I not longer an Eagle Scout because my cold weather training, and plant science is wrong?

My cat has been eating the Poinsettia all week. He hasn't been sick yet, and it may have cured his fur ball problem.

Must mean that my high school diploma's worthless too, because half of what I learned has been changed.

We've known in the great white north the importance of covering one's head to preserve body heat- if you wear your winter things without a hat you are going to get cold a lot faster than if you don't wear one. I've spent enough time on deer stands to appreciate what protecting the extremities can do for comfort.

I guess the point is if you wore a hat but only a short sleeved shirt you'd still lose heat at the same rate.

Living in the Northeast (where it's 14F right now), I always wear a hat in winter, and find it does help keep me warm. Yet, when weather gets cold enough to start layering clothing (sweaters, jackets), I still wear just one hat.

sparks, my HS diploma might be worthless, also. In my case, it's because the name on it is one I haven't used in nearly 20 years!

I can't even find mine. I know I graduated because I have the funky picture to prove it. What was up in 1980 with hair and clothes?

My head stays warmer with a hoodie or tobagan.
