Shailene Woodley Calls Twilight "Unhealthy" and "Toxic"

The movie adaptation of "Divergent" premieres Friday, March 21. Shailene Woodley, who stars as "Tris Prior" in the film, is featured in Teen Vogue's April issue. Woodley opens up about fame and why she believes the vampire trilogy "Twilight" doesn't really set a great example for younger girls.

"Twilight, I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship," Woodley, 22, said. "She falls in love with this guy, and the second he leaves her, her life is over, and she's going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve."

In "Divergent," people are divided into five distinct factions based on their personalities. Woodley's character discovers that she is Divergent, meaning she does not fit into any one faction.

Based on a suggestion from a Reddit user, Arnold Schwarzenegger bought a tank in an effort to raise funds for his charity, the After-School All-Stars program. The charity provides kids with after-school programs to help them in health and leadership.

A $10 donation by Friday will enter you into a contest to go to Los Angeles and crush things in a tank with the Terminator himself. Schwarzenegger previously posed as a heckling trainer at Gold's Gym.

Study: The 5-second rule is real

Admit it, you've used the five-second rule to feel better about eating food dropped on the floor.

New research at Aston University's School of Life and Health Sciences in Birmingham, England found that food picked up just a few seconds after being dropped is less likely to contain bacteria than if it left for longer periods of time. In other words, there may be a scientific basis behind the "5-second rule."

They tested the transfer of the common bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus from a variety of indoor floor types (carpet, laminate and tile) by dropping toast, pasta, biscuit and sticky candy then waited 3 to 30 seconds to remove the food.

The results

-Time is a significant factor in the transfer of bacteria from a floor surface to a piece of food.

-The type of flooring the food has been dropped on has an effect, with bacteria least likely to transfer from carpeted surfaces and most likely to transfer from laminate or tiled surfaces to moist foods making contact for more than 5 seconds.

Study survey

 -87% of people surveyed said they would eat food dropped on the floor, or already have done so.

-55% of those that would, or have, eaten food dropped in the floor are women.

-81% of the women who would eat food from the floor would follow the 5-second rule.
