When our skin is exposed to the sun, it creates free radicals in our body. Free radicals can damage our healthy cells. But antioxidant vitamins can help our bodies defend against free radical damage. Vitamins A, C and E neutralize free radicals before they have the chance to harm cells. So while sunscreen is p...

Hint: It is so important to your health that not having it is worse for you than being sedentary and is considered twice as dangerous as obesity. It’s not sex—though that may well be a part of it.

Cellulite is caused by underlying fat deposits that are beside tough collagen fibers, which pull taut to muscles below, creating the textured appearance above the skin. It’s related to the structures within the skin so even thin women have it. <BR> <BR> You can’t completely prevent cellulite, but lifesty...

In this time we seemed to reverse the fundamental law that shaped our physiology and have gone against the principles that got us this far to begin with. Now instead of eating like our ancestors, we have become carbohydrate addicts, consuming carbohydrates as our main source of food with protein as the supplemental food. So what does this have to do with healthy longevity you ask? A lot! <BR> <BR> Source: excerpt from book The Food Connection by...

My kids are growing up and not much stress there. My hubby is a great guy so okay with that. My only stress I think is not having enough money to do what I want to do. But I try to be grateful for what I have and that gets me through.
