  • What's your why or why not?

    What's your why or why not?

    I think the weirdest thing I see going on around this country is watching people spend money to shorten their lifespan. Beer. Wine. Liquor. Soda. Cigarettes. Doritos. Tasty Kakes. Ice Cream. McDonalds. Dunkin. Starbucks. Wawa. Etc. Etc. Science proves consistent physical activity will lead to a longer lifespan. So why do 96% of Americans think they're just potatoes with arms and legs? Even just two minutes per day ofvigorous activitycan extend the lifespan. Science proves eatinghighly processed foods shortens the human lifespan. So why does the average American go out to eat 6 times per week? That's not including all those little trips to ice cream and coffee shops. People are ....

  • Are you high risk for a stroke?

    Are you high risk for a stroke?

    What a world we're living in ... Pennsylvania has to choose between a guy who clearly has long-term stroke disabilities and another who clearlysells snake oilto unsuspecting Americans. Not that it matters much, really. Politicians are simply in place to vote for corporations and lobbyists that line their pockets. Bleak reality, yes. But we're not experts in politics, so let's shift focus to another bleak reality: strokes are in the top 5 causes of death in America. One in six deaths are attributed to this very preventable disease that no one on the news seems to be talking about. Isn't it time we highlight the health crisis we have in America? Shouldn't we shed light on the ....

No doubt this acceleration is a mixture of many things: apps increasing convenience eating habits social media increasing mental health disparities work culture bumping up cortisol levels pandemic life bumped up TV-binging lifestyle instant gratification access negating the need to work hard news outlets driving disassociation with reality industries advancing to make human survival easier The obesity epidemic costs our healthcare system about $200B annually , which will increase to $300B ....

  • Do you surround yourself with the right people?

    Do you surround yourself with the right people?

    Your social circles have an impact on your success in life without you even realizing it. Whatever the challenge in life is that you're taking on, those folks will have a big say in whether you push through or throw in the towel. These are your family members, co-workers, friends, employers, etc. And we're betting some of them are likely people that need to exit your life if you're being held back by their own unhappiness. Take a minute and ask yourself some questions. Does anyone in your life: bring you down when you say no to their own vices? try to steer you off track with temptations they enjoy? ridicule you for investing time or money in your health? enable your bad ....

  • Does eating late at night cause weight gain?

    Does eating late at night cause weight gain?

    The late night munchies. We’re all guilty of it and yet never feel great about it the next morning. Eating later at night when you’re just going to go to bed doesn’t do much good to our bodies. Why not? Eating, when it was invented, was meant to fuel the human body for energy expenditure. And that's still how everyone on Earth minus America does it. With the oodles of convenience around us, eating has become an easy way to pack on the pounds while in the sedentary lifestyle 95.32% of Americans live. Until very recently, my thoughts have just been common sense without much concrete science behind it. Thankfully for you and me, scientists keep sciencing! Yep. Just ....
