Dish Health

Dish health escapes most Americans. They think a plastic dish is the same as a glass dish. How wrong they are! Plastics contain estrogen-like compounds. The use of plastic utensils and dishes might pose a health risk. The magnitude of that risk is as yet unquantified. But more and more researchers are calling attention to the dangers of these estrogens in our environment. Next time you want to use a plastic dish in the microwave, don't do it. The microwave itself is problematic, but compounding it with the emission of plastic fumes is even worse. Anyway, I just want you to introduce this new daily deal. Right here, you can buy some electronics products, like TV sets, remote control, video cables and more. Try to check this today.

Anxiety and Health

The Hindu religion tries to quell anxiety. I hope to study the subject further. The Hindu mythology includes many gods. In fact they have more gods than any other religion. Buddhism in contrast has no gods. The Buddha is a mythic representation of the Self, he is not a god. The typical Christian or Jew does not realize that their religion is merely another myth, one of the world religions. They fail to see that the Eastern approaches are more philosophical and rational. Although Hindu gods are certainly not rational, since they cannot exist. They are a myth and a story, but they may be less problematic than Islam, which has the noxious idea of jihad.

Dickens and the Health of Ink Stain Removal

Health and cleanliness go together. The health of the nation is dependent on the health of the cleaning systems we use. The Anilox cleaning system is one that can erase ink stains. Dickens had ink stains on his fingers all the time. His wife complained but Dickens could not eradicate them. He writes about this in the book Bleak House, where Lady Dedlock tries to eradicate the ink stains that surround her life. In the end she succeeds. But the health of even the greatest writers depends on their keeping noxious ink from poisoning their blood.

Health Treatment for Great Britain

The health of older Americans is at stake, and more research has revealed that arthritis is not a disease that needs to get worse. In fact, many authorities now recommend glucosamine sulphate. This is what the top athletes are using and what many older Americans have turned to. In Great Britain the same results have led the public to embrace this alternative treatment.

Vacations for Health in Italy and France

There is nothing like fresh grass and a blue sky. This cannot compare to hemorrhoids relief. In fact many artists have sworn they will stay on the Island of Sardinia because of the climate. The great writers of the seventeenth and eighteenth century all swear by Italian vacations. This is why health has improved over the centuries. We now know that these thinkers were on to something valid and worthwhile.

Greenland Mystery of Health

The average suntanned Eskimo gets very little vitamin D from the sun. They absorb it from blubber and whale fat. They remove blackhead but cannot sear the flesh of fish. They try to obtain sufficient sun but can't. They lack the vitality of their neighbors in Canada. But they suffer less heart disease. Why? This is what researchers in Greenland set out to discover. More in a future post.

Miranda Kerr on Nutrition

Here's charming Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr talking about health and nutrition. She's a firstborn with a younger brother, by the way (for those interested in birth order), with a similar birth order to Hillary Clinton.

Don't Believe the Hype about Fat Being Bad

Leave it up to a big pharmaceutical company to screw you, the average consumer. Do they care about your health? Don't count on it. Instead, they are more about the bottom line, that is, cash for their shareholders. They could care less about your health. Take alli reviews for example. This fiasco, invented by GlaxoSmithKline, stops your body from being able to absorb fats. Duh? Fats are an essential nutrient. Don't believe the hype about fat being bad.

Health of the Mind

The ability to spell may be linked to the possibility of mental decline. Studies show that click here to lear more. Cognitive exercise is suggested to be a method of preventing mental decline. Whether this is so or not remains to be seen. But many mental health professionals take a "use it or lose it" approach and advocate mental games, conversations, even passive activities like watching tv.

You Probably Aren't Getting Enough Vitamin D

The reason is that as we age the body becomes less efficient at converting sunlight into Vitamin D. Moreover, those living north of the Southern states (say, from South Carolina north) are not getting enough sunlight in the winter. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with almost every disease, including cancer and flu.1 Good health depends on taking at least 5,000 IU of vitamin D daily. Also recommended is a blood test for Vitamin D level. References

The Many Ways to Lose Weight

Health and obesity do not usually go hand in hand. This is why the strongest fat burner is often sought by those who are overweight. They believe that they can find a supplement. The truth is that the way to reduce weight is by other means. For example, caloric restriction. Portion control. Fasting. Or carb cutting. These valid and tested methods are going to be more beneficial in the long run and cause fewer side effects.

How Invitations Might Boost Health

Good communication often depends upon good health. Those in poor health often find it difficult to communicate well. That is why we mention that printing invitations, including first communion invitations, may be a matter that you wish to consider when advertising your health. If your invitations look good people will get the impression that you enjoy robust health. Thus, by improving the look of invitations we may improve the quality of the image we project. That we may also boost our own health in this way remains to be demonstrated, however!

The Dangers of Plavix

“Why didn’t my doctor tell me about Nattokinase?” Instead of telling you about Nattokinase (a natural and healthy blood clot dissolver derived from a Japanese food, natto) your doctor probably told you about Plavix. Plavix is one of the top-selling drugs in the world. It earns more than a billion dollars a year for Bristol-Myers. Your doctor regularly sees ads by this pharmaceutical giant and is visited by sales reps who tout the supposed benefits of Plavix. Plavix is also advertised on television. It is marketed directly to consumers in commercials that the FDA said were misleading because they misrepresented the drug and its serious side-effects. Patients come into your doctor’s office and ask for Plavix by name. Your doctor probably never heard of Nattokinase.
  • Do not take Plavix and aspirin together. Do not take Plavix with Nexilum, Prevacid or Prilosec.
  • Plavix has serious side effects, one of which is mental confusion. Another serious side effect is ulcers. Counterintuitive as it may sound, another serious side effect is stroke. As the law firm of Saiontz & Kirk points out, “[R]ecent studies indicate that Plavix provides no benefits over aspirin and actually increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and gastrointestinal bleeding for some users.” They further point out that “Although Plavix costs nearly 100 times more per pill than Aspirin, it is no more effective at preventing heart attacks and stroke.”
  • There is a risk, however, of suddenly stopping Plavix.
  • Recent research indicates that 30 percent of people are not even able to metabolize Plavix because of a genetic variation. So, you may be taking a drug that has no beneficial impact on you.
  • Plavix works to prevent platelet aggregation. It does not dissolve clots.
  • Nattokinase, on the other hand, is derived from a natural Japanese food. It dissolves clots and enhances the body’s plasmin (our endogenous blood clot dissolving enzyme). Unlike Plavix, it has no harmful side effects.
RECOMMENDATION: In consultation with your physician, consider weaning yourself from Plavix and switching to nattokinase. References

Why Health and Supplementation Go Together

Health and insurance do not always go hand in hand. The term term life insurance may be familiar to you, but the meaning may not reflect the health implications of insurance. In other words, insurance cannot make you healthy and insurance will not keep you healthy. Only good eating habits, exercise, and the use of appropriate supplementation can achieve that goal. Some say supplementation is not necessary, but countless studies indicate that those who supplement live longer, healthier lives.

Sinks and Health

Health and plumbing go together. Franke sink can attest to this. Nothing says health like good hygiene. Some say cleanliness is next to godliness. The way to health, according to many doctors, is to keep yourself free from too many harmful germs. This is why choosing the right sink can mean the difference between health and sickness. The sink is more than simply a place to wash your hands.
