    Then ominously say "Cholesterol!" in their presence. People will immediately have associations with death, heart attack, cancer, and any other horrors.

    And the phrase "High cholesterol" generally crushes a weak psyc

  • Want to Live Longer? How 7-8 Hours of Sleep Affect Our Life Expectancy

    Want to Live Longer? How 7-8 Hours of Sleep Affect Our Life Expectancy





    Nothing destroys a person's immunity so much and does not shorten a person's life expectancy as a constant lack of sleep.

    Sleep not less than 7-8 hours a day guarantees to extend the average lifespan.




    Sleep quality significantly affects a person's lifespan

    Scientists were able to reliably establish that nothing affects the reduction in life expectancy like a lack of sleep.

    During sleep, the amount of dopamine

  • To Live Healthy and Longer, We Should Stop Using Sunflower Oil

    To Live Healthy and Longer, We Should Stop Using Sunflower Oil





    Sunflower oil consists of more than half of linoleic acid. The content of fatty acids in sunflower oil (in%): stearic 1.6-4.6, palmitic 3.5-6.4, myristic up to 0.1, arachidonic 0.7-0.9, oleic 24-40, linoleic 46-62, linolenic up to 1. Of the polyunsaturated fatty acids, sunflower oil contains only 1% of omega-3 acids, and Omega-6-unsaturated fatty acids prevail.

  • Not All Vitamins Are Good for Your Health

    Not All Vitamins Are Good for Your Health




    It is generally accepted that vitamins are useful. This is perceived as an axiom that does not require proof. Have you ever wondered why and for what purpose we take various vitamin and mineral complexes offered to us by the pharmaceutical industry?


    Just because we were forced to think about their usefulness? Or for a speedy recovery from colds and flu?


    But under normal circumstances, with a normal diet, people do not experience vitamin defi

  • Should You Overpay for Grass-Fed Meat?

    Should You Overpay for Grass-Fed Meat?






    Let's see if grass-fed beef is really better than grain-fed beef.

    Today Black and Aberdeen Angus are among the most popular beef breeds in the world. Such gobies graze in the pasture for about a year, and then they are sent to the so-called feedlots.

    To get the favorite marbled beef of many - with white streaks of fat in the muscles, from which the meat melts in the mouth - cows are kept in tight feedlots, they move little.

  • What is Not Keto?

    What is Not Keto?






    Any cool idea can be brought to the point of absurdity.

    A modified keto diet, which is a “custom” option that can be followed without medical supervision, is a great way to stay healthy and full. But, many newly-minted keto followers have very vague ideas about the keto diet.

    Let's figure it out.






    What is the keto diet?


    Is this a diet in which proteins, fats, carbs ratio is 15-80-5?...

  • Should I Take Omega-3-6-9 Dietary Supplements or Not?

    Should I Take Omega-3-6-9 Dietary Supplements or Not?





    Should we eat foods rich in omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids and take omega-3-6-9 supplements?

    Only a person cut off from the outside world has not heard about the benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Health-conscious people try to consume these acids as much as possible, sometimes even in preparations.

    Unscrupulous manufacturers often play with our best intentions.






    What are unsaturated fatty...

  • Sugar Harms Human Health and Causes Cancer

    Sugar Harms Human Health and Causes Cancer






    Until 100 years ago, refined sugar was not an essential part of the daily diet. Only very rich people could afford it.

    Today the picture has changed dramatically and for most people a day without a sweet dessert looks bleak and dull.


    However, over the past 100 years, the number of cases of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer has increased dramatically.


    Scientists first started talking about

  • Even a Short Physical Activity Can Boost Your Brain Power

    Even a Short Physical Activity Can Boost Your Brain Power



    We know that physical activity improves health, protects against obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. But the beneficial effects of exercise extend not only to our body but also to our mind.

    It has long been known that exercise breaks during mental work improve performance.

    You might think that exercise, like any change in activity, simply allows the brain to get distracted and rest, but in fact, exercise itself directly affects the brain.

  • How to Program Yourself for Longevity

    How to Program Yourself for Longevity





    We have the right and ability to determine our own longevity.

    How much you want to live a long, fulfilling life, for what longevity you set or program yourself, largely depends on how long you will live. But this is just a theory that everyone can try to put into practice.

    Let's speculate! No one has yet died because of old age. People die of natural death only from diseases.

    Therefore, the prospects are extremely simple - first,

  • What Are Keto Cheat Days? Why They Are Recommended and Why I Am Against

    What Are Keto Cheat Days? Why They Are Recommended and Why I Am Against




    From the title of the article, my opinion about the carbohydrate load on the keto diet is already clear. But if you are interested in my arguments and thoughts on this matter, welcome!




    What is a cheat meal and why is it recommended?


    A cheat meal, in the classical sense, is cheating food, cheating your way of eating.

    This term was coined for people who want to remove food restrictions dictated by diets or even the indications

    Sugar Shortens Life Expectancy: Links to Studies





    Avoiding sweets guarantees to extend the average life expectancy of a person.


    The benefits of avoiding sweets:



    - prevention of systematic vascular inflammation (prevention of stroke and heart attack)

    - prevention of autoimmune reactions (allergies, psoriasis)

    - prevention of atherosclerosis, and consequently-cardiovascular diseases

    - normalization of body weight, since body fat is modified...

  • The Harm of Low-fat Foods or What Diseases Are Caused by the Fear of Fatty Foods








    Fear of fatty foods as a socially acceptable eating disorder

    Fatphobia (Lipophobia) – fear of fatty foods and their deliberate avoidance. This phenomenon is not given much importance.

    I would even say that in modern society, it is simply customary to be careful when it comes to fatty foods and strive for low-fat products. Animal fats are a particular subject of fear.


    For example, we are afraid to fry

  • Do I Need to Count Calories on the Keto Diet?

    Do I Need to Count Calories on the Keto Diet?




    In this article, we look at how the microbiota, the way food is prepared and even sliced affects calories, why the calorie theory doesn't work, and if there is a way to calculate calories on the ketogenic diet.

    Keto adherents often repeat: "Eat when you are hungry until you feel full".


    The keto diet gives you freedom - from food stalls, from endless snacks, from the need to think about where and when you can get food next time.

  • How Fruit Juice Causes Aging of the Skin

    How Fruit Juice Causes Aging of the Skin


    Fruit juice causes aging of the skin of the face, due to the exclusion of coarse fiber of the fruit itself, which provokes the glycation of proteins and the destruction of skin collagen.

    Many girls, when they want to become more beautiful, go to the solarium, sunbathe, and even after the tanning procedure, they drink beautifully advertised freshly squeezed fruit juice. And all this in the hope of becoming more attractive.
