50 Percent Fertility Reduction Because of Household Chemicals

Male fertility has been on the decline for at least 40 years, with a 50 percent global reduction in sperm quality noted from 1938 to 2011.1 A similar decline in sperm quality has been observed in dogs living in human households, with sperm motility declining by 30 percent over a 26-year period.2The corresponding declines suggest that something in the environment, and likely in our homes, could be causing the drop in fertility among both dogs and people. In the canine study, the researchers linked certain environmental chemicals to sperm problems and suggested they could also be responsible for the sperm quality declines in humans — a notion supported by a recent study published in Scientific Reports.3The findings present one likely factor leading to fertility reductions, but it’s not the only one — there are other reasons why fertility continues to decline as well — namely the pervasive influence of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

Benefits of Moringa

Benefits of Moringa: A Nutritional Powerhouse

Famously called “the miracle tree” thanks to its exceptional nutritional content and therapeutic potential, moringa more than lives up to its name.[1] Moringa offers numerous health benefits, including protecting against free radicals and promoting a strong immune system in all stages of life. Among other things, moringa supports the heart, brain, and liver, and can even give your sex drive a boost. You might see it sold as a “superfood” in grocery and health food stores, but moringa is no passing fad. For centuries, people have consumed various parts of the moringa tree for health, energy, and other therapeutic qualities. Moringa contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals, but, according to scientists, many of moringa’s benefits come from its phytochemicals, which include isothiocyanates, chlorogenic acid, and flavonoids like quercetin.

11 Coffee Alternatives to Help You Kick the Habit

A cup of joe is a key part of many people’s morning routine. Coffee isn’t just aromatic and delicious — it promotes alertness and focus, suppresses appetite, and even aids with digestion.[1]Coffee acts as a stimulant, which means that it can increase your blood pressure and heart rate; it also gives some people headaches. And while it helps digestion in some people, it can cause stomach pain and indigestion in others, especially people who drink several cups a day. Maybe your healthcare provider recommended that you reduce your coffee intake or remove it from your diet entirely. Or perhaps you just want to live coffee-free for personal reasons. No matter the reason, we have good news. Several delicious drinks can ease your transition away from coffee while still providing some or all of the same effects. Many of these coffee substitutes have more natural sugar and no bitter taste, unlike coffee. Here are some ideas and recipes to get you started.

Exercise Is Key to Longer Life

Exercise Is Key to Longer Life

Exercise Is a Better Predictor of Longevity Than Your AgeA study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology10 sought to estimate a patient’s age based on performance during an exercise stress test. Over 125,000 patients referred for exercise stress testing were included. Estimated age was based on exercise capacity. After nearly nine years of follow-up, researchers discovered the patient’s estimated age based on their exercise stress test was a better predictor of mortality as compared to chronological age. The results held true for both men and women. Researchers believe the key take-home messages were that exercise variables are powerful predictors of survival, and health care providers could consider using their physiological age as a way to motivate their patients to exercise more.11 A similar study12 evaluated 8,000 middle-aged and older adults and found adding the physical activity of any intensity or duration cut their risk of early death. The researchers believe the findings highlight the importance of movement, regardless of intensity. Participants wore activity monitors over a four-day period to record the intensity of physical activity. The death rate was tabulated through 2017 and this data was used to estimate how substituting exercise for time spent sitting would affect the risk of early death.

8 Things I Wish I Spent More Time Avoiding

When I was 17 I was daydreaming while driving a car. I had just had a chess lesson and beaten my instructor in a surprising way. He was surprised and quickly reset the pieces so he could have revenge before the lesson was over. But it didn’t matter. I had beaten him! Crushed him. DESTRUCTION! Then I hit a guy with my car. I went straight through a red light at about 60 miles an hour and hit a station wagon. Both cars went flying around in circles. All the windows were smashed. I somehow bounced out of the car and then bounced back in. All four fences on the corner were destroyed. The cars stopped circling. He seemed to be unconscious. I ran to the closest house and called 911 and then called my parents. I was crying and shaking. But I wasn’t hurt. Not a scratch. The police asked me, “What were you doing? Were you drinking?”
