Taking care of my health through ingenious methods

Published May 27, 2016

My health and wellness is of great concern to me. I love being in top notch condition at all times. I like being in a position where I can manage all kinds of activities with my body. This is a passion that I developed as a young girl growing up in Singapore. In our City, we have a good number of the elderly people living amongst all the other people in the urban populations. As a young girl I would study them with a keen interest and sympathize with the difficulties they experienced in moving around and doing basic things. […]

Paint Can Be Poison In Pregnancy!

Published December 26, 2014

Your doctor has surely told you about the various things that you need to avoid during pregnancy. However, since paint is not something that women are regularly exposed to, this may not be mentioned.

Rowing vs. Spinning

Published November 24, 2014

Sometimes it seems like there are too many fitness options and none of them is the correct one to do. Running is bad for your joints, ellipticals aren’t intense enough, so on and so forth. There always have been and always will be fitness fads. In the 80’s, the aerobics classes came on the scene heavy and hard. Sweatbands and leg warmers, anyone? In the 20s housework was seen as a form of fitness for women. The list goes on and on. As of late, spinning has seen a re-emergence as a way to get fit. Big companies are franchising […]

Published September 17, 2014

A recent decision by the Canadian government to allow the world’s first genetically modified fish to be put into production has some environmental lawyers as well as some citizens up in arms. The “Frankenfish” as it has been dubbed is a salmon which through genetic modification can grow at approximately twice the pace as a naturally grown salmon. This version of salmon was created by company AquaBounty Technologies, which have also genetically modified trout and tilapia. With the constantly rising populations around the world, aquaculture has become the most rapidly advancing part of the agriculture industry. It is estimated that […]

5 Ways You Can Reduce Waste In Your Home

Published July 19, 2014

Reducing waste and eliminating clutter in the home has multiple benefits; not only does the house become cleaner but so does the mind. Research has proven that too much clutter can cause the mind to become over active, focusing on things that do not matter and taking attention away from the things that do matter. For example, if a person is working on three different projects and has all three spread out before them, the mind will be unable to focus on the one project which they are actively working. Instead thoughts will be turning to the other two projects, […]

Could Monsanto’s Roundup Be Linked With Kidney Disease?

Published May 26, 2014

The chemical weed killer Roundup made by Monsanto is found on shelves everywhere and is used to eradicate those pesky weeds. I prefer my father-in-laws method of using a blowtorch on the weeds which is much more entertaining but completely impractical, unless your yard is made of rocks like his. Roundup is made mainly from glyphosate, with other chemicals added. Research has determined it may be the addition of these other chemicals which drives up the toxicity of the product. When the product was first introduced in the 1970’s it was unfortunately killing the crops along with the weeds it […]

Are “Organic” Label Foods Really Worth The Extra Cost?

Published May 22, 2014

There is no doubt about the fact that organic food costs more that non-organic foods. It costs more to grow the food organically, so it makes sense that the farmers would pass those additional costs along to the consumers. The question that every family must ask is, are the additional costs worth it? Organic food is shown to provide more of the vitamins and minerals the human body needs to thrive. Research has shown that a food grown with pesticides, and grown in soil that has been depleted of its nutrients by pesticides has lower levels of vitamins and minerals […]

Is There A Link Between Air Pollution & Rates Of Asthma

Published May 20, 2014

As anyone with asthma already knows, removing the trigger that can cause the attack is essential; but what does an individual do if the trigger is the very air they breathe? Air pollution in the United States has improved over the years with the introduction of the Clean Air Act in 1970. The levels of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and particles in the air have decreased substantially in the last 40 years. Because of the efforts towards cleaner air Americans now have lower risks for serious health issues and premature death. For Americans that is good […]
