People with Cancer Need More Exercise

Here is a pretty interesting article that we found on Cooking with Kathy Man talking about exercise after being diagnosed with cancer.

“Doctors and nurses need to ‘bust the myth’ that cancer patients should simply rest to recover,” The Daily Telegraph has reported. It says that a charity has found only one in five cancer patients who have been through treatment have been told how regular physical activity could benefit them.

The Telegraph says that Macmillan Cancer Support has found that “only

Raw Butter

Reblogged from Optimized Individuals

Raw butter is raw butter.

It is the “living” food that comes from cows before it is killed and pasteurized.  The vibrations are still there.  People have been using raw butter and cream for health and healing for thousands of years.  It combines very well with cooked vegetables.  What is this whole deal with the raw anyway?

Specialized Video Games Can Help Teens Beat Depression

Video games are almost always considered in a negative light by all those except those that play them. They make people lazy, and many consider it to cause mental illness. However, a study conducted in New Zealand created a special video game for depressed teens that was more effective than traditional counseling. Depression can be devastating among youths, yet fewer than 1 in 5 depressed teens are treated, in part because they are reluctant to seek a therapist’s help.

The video game, called SPARX, delivers cognitive behavioral therapy in a fun, entertaining way. The acronym stands for

Starbucks Secret Menu + Healthy Options

We didn't know Starbucks has a secret menu. We know there are a few restaurants, such as In-n-Out Burger that have an established secret (but not really secret) menu, but not Starbucks! Maybe we are behind the times, but thanks to Words with Nate, we found this menu and decided we had to share it. Next time you go into Starbucks, try one of these drinks and see how the barista reacts! The secret menu didn't seem that healthy, so we have selected three drink options that won't ruin

Vitamin D is Really Amazing!

Here is a write up from Roger Mason, a friend of Supplement Spot.

Whatever condition and disease you study, vitamin D keeps coming up as a major factor. Vitamin D is the most important and deficient vitamin of all. Vitamin D is the most important vitamin in prostate and breast disease, for example. Prostate and breast cancer are identical in causes and cures. All American men will have cancer cells in their prostate if they live past 60. One in eight American women will get breast cancer. Vitamin D is the most important vitamin for bone and joint

Background TV Bad for Children

You have probably heard it before, infants and toddlers should not be watching TV, because it interferes with development. However, most people consider watching TV as active watching. New research shows that even having the TV on in the background can be bad for a child's development.

This study collected data from a national phone survey of over 1,400 Americans whose children were between the ages of 8 months to 8 years old. The study found that the average American child is exposed to over 232.2 minutes of background TV a day. This 232.2 minutes is related to the TV being

The Food Pyramid is Gone

This is replacing My Pyramid.

The Department of Agriculture has removed the food pyramid in favor of a food plate, providing more relevancy to Americans when thinking about their health and nutrition. The plate focuses on pushing a more plant-based diet.

One half of your plate should be filled with fruits and vegetables, with whole grains and lean protein on the other half, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Low-fat dairy on the side, such as a cup of skim milk or yogurt, is also suggested. MyPlate is designed to remind Americans to
