Just about everyone who has tried to make radically healthier changes to their daily food consumption have realized that this is easier to accomplish with some kind of support system aside from your own will to succeed. It is a great help for people to cheer you on, support you, give you advice, or even criticize you on your way to better eating and overall health. Sometimes, you just can’t trust yourself as you are prone to self-rationalization (you are the best person to convince yourself to do anything), and an external perspective can be very useful.
We live in an age that a community can be in touch with one another, regardless of where they are physically. Health and fitness communities span countries, or even continents; they can share recipes, compare notes, and keep tabs on each other’s progress. Despite the widespread contagion of contaminated food, questionable chemical and genetic concoctions supposedly for human consumption, and strains of resistant bacteria, there has never been a better time in human history to sculpt the healthiest human beings ever to walk the planet.
It is because of the (Read More....)
Body building training is indeed very important for your health since it helps to ensure that all your body organs function properly. However, injuries may occur in the training process. One of the sure ways of avoiding injuries is by following the instructions provided by your instructor to the letter. Here are some additional injury prevention steps that you can use to achieve the full benefits from your work out.
Tip 1: This entails purchasing top quality equipment which will be required. You may choose to join a gym facility instead of buying your own personal equipment.
Tip 2: Cramps are usually experienced by people who have a meal at least 30 minutes before the work out. Of course, you should not exercise on an empty stomach but you need to eat at a recommended time. It is wise to consume food which can supply the required energy at least 40 minutes before your training session in order to give your body enough time to digest the food. Ensure that your body has enough fluids by taking enough water before and after the exercise.
Tip 3: Warm Up- This helps to prepare the body for the body building activity. In addition, it helps to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood stream and this in turn helps in preventing muscle soreness. An example of a good warm up can (Read More....)
If you have checked the news recently, no doubt you have noticed it is not the best time to be living in New York or other parts of the East Coast.
Back in October, just before the presidential election, residents of New York and Long Island were graced with the presence of Superstorm Sandy, a monster of a hurricane that dealt utter destruction and flooding to low-lying coastal areas.
Just as residents began to recover from Sandy, along came a blizzard that dealt anywhere from a foot of snow in the Manhattan area to three feet of snow along Long Island and up towards Boston.
According to The New York Times, $82 billion in damage was spread among three states alone (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut), and Congress was slow to approve a $60 billion emergency-aid package. It will take plenty of time for this money to work its way through the system and red tape and get to the places where it is needed most.
It seems as if the crosshairs of Mother Nature are trained on New England as of late. If it isn’t a hurricane or a bunch of rain causing floods, it is a big blizzard. These storms do not (Read More....)

One of the big chips in the progress of the Human Species is medicine. With successful medicine comes an increase in the aged population of the planet. Everyone of these aged individuals takes up space. A lot of them have no useful productive use anymore. A lot of them require expensive nursing facilities to survive. A lot of them have aging diseases such as Alzheimer disease. All of them eat food until they eventually succumb to one disease or another. In effect, we all age, we all deteriorate, and eventually we all die. I don’t care if you are worth 2 cents or 200 billion dollars. The same rules apply to all of us.
How we handle this problem of aging populations is going to take genius level intelligence. Most likely that will not be found in government leadership. I refer to all government, not just the government here.
The maximum amount of time given us on this planet is very variable. I think the maximum age of any individual on this planet in modern times has been 126 years and that is not documented very well. The Bible says 120 years is the maximum and I believe that might be a better answer.
Industry generally gives up on people at the age of 62-70 years of age. Though a lot of modern companies try to get rid of their (Read More....)
