Low saturated fat diets don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer... Diets low in saturated fat don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer, says a leading US cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy in an editorial in the open access journal Open Heart. And current dietary advice to replace saturated fats with carbohydrates or omega 6-rich polyunsaturated fats is based on flawed and incomplete data from the 1950s, argues Dr James DiNicolantonio. Dietary guidelines should be urgently reviewed and the vilification of saturated fats stopped to save lives, he insists. DiNicolantonio points out that the demonization of saturated fats dates back to 1952, when research suggested a link between high dietary saturated fat intake and deaths from heart disease. But the study author drew his conclusions on data from six countries, choosing to ignore the data from a further 16, which didn't fit with his hypothesis, and which subsequent analysis of all 22 countries' data, disproved, says DiNicolantonio. Low saturated fat diets don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer...
(NaturalNews) The President's Cancer Panel (PCP) recently released its yearly report to the President outlining the status of cancer in America. This year's report focuses primarily on environmental factors that contribute to cancer risk. According to the report, pharmaceutical drugs are a serious environmental pollutant, particularly in the way they continue to contaminate waterways across the country (and the world). Many reports have recently appeared about pharmaceutical contamination of water supplies, rivers, lakes and other waterways, but spokespersons from the drug and chemical industries have denied that this pollution poses any risk whatsoever to the environment. The executive summary of the PCP report includes the following statements: "[P]harmaceuticals have become a considerable source of environmental contamination. No laws exist to protect the public from pharmaceuticals According to a U.S. Hospitals, consumers and drug companies are all responsible Or have they already?

Drs. Oz & Roizen: Tips for Wise Workouts Drs. Oz & Roizen: Tips for Wise Workouts Q: What is the least amount of time I can work out and see health benefits? I have friends devoted to quick-fitness apps, like the 7 Minute Workout, but can you really stay fit in such little time? A: You can, but you should already be pretty darn fit before you can gain the benefits from the intense, short regimen. Caveats: Researchers admit you must go all-out for the quick-workout benefits, and most people will probably need at least 20 minutes of a less-intense circuit program to attain all of the benefits. If you’re getting back in the exercise saddle, we recommend you get fit first by walking, which prepares you to begin strength training, which then prepares you for cardio. After a month of that, get cross-training shoes and incorporate resistance training; has a few lessons. Next, add cardio—get your heart rate up, up, up! If you’re at peak fitness, you can try a killer circuit-training session like the 7 Minute Workout to maximize exercise time. A: You both are.

What is the difference between a chalazion and a stye? What is the difference between a chalazion and a stye? A chalazion is a condition that affects the eyelids. It is a firm lump that forms in the upper or lower eyelid. A chalazion starts to develop when the opening of an oil gland on the eyelid is blocked by small particles such as grains of dust, dirt or microscopic pollen. A chalazion is not an infection or growth; it is a swelling that can be prominently seen on the eyelid. A chalazion is also known as the meimobian cyst, tarsal cyst or conjunctival granuloma. How does a chalazion form? The upper and lower eyelids have oil glands present along the margins just behind the eyelashes. The opening of an oil gland can get blocked by microscopic particles and prevent the oil from oozing out into the eyes. As more and more of oil gets collected in the oil gland, the pressure inside increases and this can cause a rupture in the walls of the oil gland. When the walls of the oil gland rupture, the oil flows back into the eyelid and starts to collect in a small sac. What is a stye? External Stye

What You Should Know about Contact Lenses What You Should Know about Contact Lenses I have been wearing spectacles for a long time now. I wanted to see how it would be to wear contacts. Many of my friends told me it gave them total freedom. Before deciding to go in for contacts, I thought it would be better if I did some research on my own. This article is a result of my research work for information on contact lenses. Contact lenses are thin lenses that are worn directly on the surface of your eyeball. Wearing spectacles can be very irritating for some; some others may want to totally get rid of spectacles due to the sheer fact that they hate spectacles and some for cosmetic reasons. Whatever the reason maybe contact lenses make life a breeze for those who do not want to wear spectacles. The most popular contacts that people choose to wear are the soft contact lenses. The gas permeable contact lenses are also known as Rigid Gas Permeable lenses. Soft Contact Lenses Soft contact lenses are made of silicone hydrogels. Disposable contact lenses Extended wear contact lenses

Make Your Own Padded Air Mattress How to Make Your Own Mattress In the fall of 2011, my husband and I had a serious problem. The mattress I had been sleeping on for several years had finally given up the ghost, and we did not have enough money to replace it. A used mattress was not an option (can you say eeewww!?), and continuing to sleep on my old, worn-out mattress was giving me back pain, making the tired all the time, and (most significantly to my husband) making me irritable in a way that usually happens once a month. After thinking about it for a little while, Hubby came up with an unorthodox solution. If you ever find yourself in the same situation, you can do what we did and save yourself some serious cash. You will need Your (clean!) Using a utility knife, cut apart your old mattress. Remove all the padding from your old mattress. When you have finished removing all the padding from the old mattress, take the spring frame to a scrap metal recycling center. Make your bed away you normally do. Safety note:
HomeBlogDo you wake up at 2-3 every morning? Jan 29 2013 by Kate 11 Comments If you are one of the many people waking up at 2 or 3 in the morning and can’t get back to sleep, you might want to read this… While you could pop an over-the-counter sleep aid, there might be a better choice out there for you. So maybe you could just pop a natural supplement instead, right? So what’s one to do? The solution to the root cause of the problem is likely to be blood sugar control. So maybe you are not convinced. - Do you get shaky, irritable, or lightheaded if you miss meals? If your answer is yes to either one of those, you do belong to those with blood sugar imbalances.

The 5 Step Process to Develop Life Long Motivation Motivation is often cited as the magical answer to everything you want. If you were motivated you would lose that weight, write that book, start the business and so on. So how do we develop the habits and mind power needed to stay motivated on a daily basis? Here is my 5 Step Process to Develop Life Long Motivation. But, here’s a question: What if motivation never strikes? What are you going to do then? Is Motivation The Solution? I often hear people say “if I could just find the motivation to…” Within these words are an implication. If you were motivated you would pay off that debt, find a new job, and go back to school. But what if that’s not the case? What if motivation isn’t the solution? What if motivation is a consequence of the actions you take? What Came First: The Motivation or The Action? I believe that there is a dance between motivation and action. Who makes the first move? The first step? Who leads the dance? Motivation isn’t something that can be summoned upon demand. How do you feel?
