Vitamins and Minerals for a Healthy Reproductive System

 
Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are essential to the development and proper performance of the reproductive system.

Bathing Suit Season - A Nutritional Guide

 
Spring is in the air and ? summer is around the corner! I know a lot of people have been contacting me about getting themselves and their bodies ready for da-da - DUM? BATHING SUIT SEASON.

Now it is time to let every part of you take a deep breath of summer sun....
 

Foods Can Lower Cholesterol and C-reactive Protein

 
If you have high cholesterol, the American Heart Association's low-cholesterol, low-saturated fat diet will fail you. Even when applied conscientiously, it achieves a disappointingly modest reduction in LDL cholesterol of approximately 7%.

And no surprise that many physicians go directly to statin agents for their nearly effortless 35% or greater reduction....

Americans are literally running out of time. Achieving a work-life balance, which is still a luxury for tens of millions of working parents, has been overtaken by an even greater demand: a work-life-nutrition balance. Unfortunately, this increasing demand for nutrition has not been accompanied by a useful strategy that enables people to reclaim time from their harried lives. The result of this dilemma has been an additional layer of stress applied on top of an already stressful life. This has further highlighted stress as America's top health problem something that was first brought to public attention in the early 1980s, and has since more obvious in the 2 decades since then[i]....
 

Death, Aging, Rejuvenation (Part 1)

 
I would like to raise a question: Is Rejuvenation possible and how to approach it? This is just my own opinion about possible procedures. I used certain techniques based on a theory. As strange as it sounds some of those techniques and procedures might actually worked. There are several hundreds theories of aging. New and old ones. Different authors classify them differently. I would divide all those theories into 2 groups : I would divide the "internal clock" theories into 2 more subgroups: 1....

The Meat You Eat: How Corporate Farming Has Endangered Americas Food Supply

 
Factory Farming The big names in American agriculture would like you to believe that your strip steak, salmon filet, scrambled eggs and bacon came from healthy, happy animals raised on good, old-fashioned family farms. But, as more Americans are coming to realize, behind those perfectly cellophane-wrapped meats, bright white eggs and plastic milk gallons are tales so gruesome and downright shocking that it's a surprise Hollywood has yet to make it a movie about it. "It" is agribusiness, the term given to describe the mass production of meats, poultry, fish, eggs and milk in America today, and it's the topic of Ken Midkiff's new book, The Meat You Eat: How Corporate Farming Has Endangered America's Food Supply -- a book that absolutely every American who values their health, eats meat, believes in humanity, and/or values our environment should read!...
