Consumer Reports’ Recommends Sunscreens That Seep Poison Into Your Bloodstream

While there are instances where sunscreen may be prudent, these products are widely overused and contribute to widespread vitamin D deficiency. In my view, sunscreen is rarely needed, provided you’re following sensible sun exposure guidelines to prevent burning. Simply get out of the sun or wear clothing the moment your skin starts to turn light pink. That said, conventional guidance by the American Academy of Dermatology1 stresses the use of sunscreen, not only when lying on the beach but every single day, regardless of whether or skin pigmentation. Aside from promoting vitamin D deficiency, which has a long list of health consequences, sunscreen use may also be a source of toxic exposure.

Easy way to lower your risk of hip fractures up to 44%

Reducing the risk of hip fractures is easier than you might think, according to a Framingham Osteoporosis Study.

How to Manage Frequent Urination in Women and What Causes It

I was in an important meeting at work and suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to go to the bathroom — despite using it an hour ago. I rushed out of the room and frantically searched for the closest bathroom. The full and uncomfortable feeling in my bladder couldn’t wait for the meeting to end!

Glucose and Glutamine Restrictions in Treatment of Cancer

Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D., professor of biology at Boston College, is a leading expert and researcher in the field of cancer metabolism and nutritional ketosis. His book, “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management and Prevention of Cancer” is a foundational textbook on this topic, and in August 2016, he received the Game Changer Award for his work. Here, we discuss the mechanisms of cancer and the influence of mitochondrial function, which plays a crucial role in the development and treatment of this disease. Many of his views are now encapsulated in his most recent paper,1 “Mitochondrial Substrate-Level Phosphorylation as Energy Source for Glioblastoma: Review and Hypothesis,” published online December 27, 2018. He’s also published a number of other papers2,3,4 on the metabolic underpinnings of cancer.

Getting What You Want Through Gratitude

But why gratitude is so powerful? Let me explain. When you write a note of thanks on paper and thereby physically express your gratitude to someone else, it gives the recipient a huge boost of good feelings. They get a note in the mail, addressed to them, which hardly ever happens these days! It’s special. It’s an event. And on top of that, sending the note gives you the same boost! And from this boost, your day gets better, their day gets better, and life in all aspects just keeps getting better and more joyful. Just from the action of giving thanks. I discovered this gem of an idea three years ago and the goodness that I have been spreading is still paying me back 100 times over. My one little concept, which was to send out one handwritten thank you note each day, has since become a movement, a mantra {Spread Thanks}, a book, and a way of life for me and for so many people who have also embraced it.


What Is Your Inner Critic Saying to You?

It’s time to cut yourself some slack. Most of us are experts at being hard on ourselves and novices at being easy with ourselves. Listen to your self-talk. How many times per day do you tell yourself something to the tune of: “I’m not good enough, I am not deserving, something is wrong with me, I should have done or been more, better or different”? And is telling yourself these things bring more joy, fulfillment, success, and peace into your life? I suspect not. If you talked to your friends the way you talk to yourself and had the expectations of them you have of yourself, how many friends would you have? Today let’s UPdate the old “Golden Rule” to: “do unto yourself what you do to others and do not do unto yourself what you would not do to others.”
