Why Standing Still Makes Your Legs More Sore Than Walking. By Dr. Mercola Some 10,000 publications have shown that excessive sitting is harmful to your health, irrespective of other lifestyle habits, including an excellent exercise program. There are at least 24 different chronic diseases and conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes, associated with excess sitting. As the health risks continue to mount, many people have converted their workstations from sitting to standing, myself included, and there are many benefits to doing so. Why Standing Is Generally Better Than Sitting… According to Dr.

Levine, co-director of the Mayo Clinic and the Arizona State University Obesity Initiative, when you have been sitting for a long period of time, within 90 seconds of getting off your bottom and standing up the muscular and cellular systems that process blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol — which are mediated by insulin — are activated. Standing Still Isn’t the Idea… When you stand, your legs are constantly under pressure. 2. Junk Food Is Literally Shrinking Your Brain - MUNCHIES. Hey, mouthbreather. Can you spell "succedaneum" without looking it up? Do you even remember the names of all of the commanders involved in the Battle of Grunwald? How's your knowledge of Pappus's centroid theorem, bro? If your brain is feeling weak, you might blame it on fast food. To put it more succinctly: Burgers and fries might be shrinking your brain.

The study, recently published in BMC Medicine, compared MRI scans of about 250 people who were in their early 60s in 2001. The researchers from Deakin University and the Australian National University found that the people who subscribed to a healthier diet had larger hippocampi, while the fast food fans had smaller ones—and the relative healthiness of their diets directly correlated to their hippocampal volume, as it's called. The authors of the study—being, you know, scientists—also considered other factors that could affect hippocampal volume, including medication, gender, and mental health issues. They Say Microwaves Are Bad For You But THIS Is What They Don’t Tell You. According to The Southwest Museum of Engineering, Communication and Computation (SMECC), more than 95 percent of American homes own a microwave oven because it is seen as “almost impossible/pretty difficult” to do without.

Microwave ovens, originally sold as “Radaranges,” use technology that passes electromagnetic waves through food, exciting the molecules and causing them to move and heat up as they respond to the microwave radiation. Microwaves are electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light. The magnetron in the microwave oven produces wave energy. This wave energy converts polarity of molecules from positive to negative. A Swiss study led by biologist and food scientist Dr. Overpowered: The Dangers of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) and What You Can Do about It “They bounce around the inside of your [microwave] oven and are absorbed by the food you put in it,” writes Dr. Hans Hertel, a Swiss scientist, states: “Production of unnatural molecules is inevitable. How to Increase Melanin With Vitamins. Melanocytes are cells contained in the basal or outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis.

These cells create melanin, which pigments the skin. People with more melanin have darker skin tones. The more melanin you have, the more protection your skin has against the damaging effects of the sun. Sun-damaged skin increases your risk of skin cancer. Certain vitamins can help increase and maintain the number of melanocytes in the skin. Always talk to your doctor before changing your diet or taking dietary supplements, especially if you are pregnant or nursing. Eat animal and plant-based foods that contain vitamin A, an important nutrient responsible for restoring and maintaining melanin in the skin. Take a daily supplement of vitamin A if your diet does not provide enough of this vitamin. Include vitamin C foods such as citrus in your diet. Take a dietary supplement that contains 65 mg a day of vitamin C each day. Geneticist David Suzuki Says Humans “Are Part Of A Massive Experiment” We are doing our part to try and spread the word about GMOs, (genetically modified organisms) but we’re not the only ones.

Multiple public figures, scientists and researchers have been speaking out about GMOs for a number of years. For example, not long ago a former Canadian Government Scientist at Agriculture Canada, Dr. Thierry Vrain (one of many) spoke out against GMOs. Another prominent public figure, Geneticist David Suzuki has been a long time advocate against GMOs, and has been speaking out about how they can be hazardous to human health as well as the environment. Below, I’ve provided a video example of Suzuki explaining why he feels the way he does about GMOs.

Public figures with a wide audience can have a great impact on the consciousness of the masses, they are great ‘tools’ for waking more people up to the reality that GMOs can be harmful to human health as well as the environment. As you can see, alternative media outlets are not the only ones doing their research. 20 Practical Uses for Coca Cola – Proof That Coke Does Not Belong In The Human Body. Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very close to the acidity level of battery acid and consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners. It’s cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean water. Coke uses “public relations propaganda” to convince consumers and entire nations that it is an “environmental company” when really it is linked to pollution, water shortages, and disease.

People who consume soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke risk, compared to people who did not drink the sodas at all or did not drink them every day. The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones through a 3-stage process: 1. 2. 3. But, the story doesn’t end there. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 20 Practical Uses For Coke 1. 2. What Is The Best Non-Prescription Eyelash Enhancer? Top 8 Supplements to Boost Your Pineal Gland Function. By Anna Hunt, The pineal gland, an endocrine gland located in the brain, is said to be the seat of the soul.

Also referred to as the Third Eye, this small gland is believed to be involved in reaching higher levels of consciousness, acting as a gateway to dimensions beyond our brain-created reality.

For the people that seek to fully activate their spiritual potential and tap into the power of the pineal gland, one must begin by strengthening its function though detoxification and proper nutrition.
