Your Health Is Your Responsibility

 

Can Malnutrition Be The Cause?

 


 

To survive and thrive in life there are three essential elements that all of us need.

We need pure air, pure water and pure food.

Our bodies can survive on less than pure air, less than pure water and less than

pure food but it cannot thrive.

 

All of us pretty much know when the air is not pure and most of us have switched from

To Exercise or Not…

Exercise The Rest Of The Story

When it comes to weight loss, most people would agree that, exercise plays a crucial role in how fast or how quickly one loses weight.

 

 Is exercise beneficial when one is not trying to lose weight?

 

To see just how valuable it is, one needs to know about the body’s lymphatic system.The lymphatic system is a network of ducts and nodes. These nodes are distributed throughout the body and are concentrated in the chest, arm pits, neck, and groin. The lymphatic system’s primary function is to carry toxins from the extremities to be removed.

 

Contractions of the heart cause the blood to circulate through the veins and arteries, but the lymphatic system does not have a pump. Contractions of the muscles, primarily those of the arms and legs, serves as a pump for the lymphatic fluid.

 

The lymph nodes also produce white blood cells which help control invading germs and viruses.The lymph ducts and nodes swell when overloaded with toxins, and becomes incapable of removing more toxic waste.

 

Exercise is one of the primary ways to remove toxins and prevent the immune system from becoming weakened and unprotected from germs and viruses. The result is sickness and other health issues.

 

If one wants to be healthy and disease free, exercise regularly, at least 3 or 4 times a week.

The article stated that 3 million kids and their parents suffer from food allergies and that this number might be growing.  In the decade ending in 2007,  there has been a 20 percent increase in children suffering from food allergies.

The experts seem to be baffled as to why food Continue reading

Why Buy Organic Food

Is Organic Food Healthier?

 


 
There is no scientific evidence or studies that show that organic food is healthier or more nutritious than non-organic food. If it’s not more nutritious then why buy it?

The primary reasons are listed below:

Organic food is produced using no pesticides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizers.

Even though it may not be more nutritious, it’s certainly safer. Pesticides, insecticides and chemical fertilizers are toxic to the human body and can cause sickness, mental disorders and even death in some cases.

Foods certified organic do not contain, preservatives, artificial flavorings, food additives, flavor enhancers, chemicals or colorants.

Food additives, preservatives and artificial flavorings are chemicals that Continue reading

Good Fats – Bad Fats

All Fats Are Not Bad

 

If you are like most Americans you believe that fat is bad for you, especially saturated fat.

The truth is some fats are bad for us and some fats are actually very good for us.

Fat doesn’t necessarily cause disease, and in many cases it can actually aid in its prevention.

For more than 40 years, Americans have been told that Continue reading
