Did you know that age related mental decline starts as early as age 20 when our brains begin to shrink? (That's depressing!) That decline accelerates with age and by about age 40, it's harder to remember where you left your keys. (Sound familiar???) By age 60, our reaction time slows down and learning new things is harder. (My guess is that a few of us can relate to that!) The good news is that there are simple things we can do to slow normal age-related mental decline. Keep reading (and watching) to learn how you can support long-term brain health; keep your blood pressure in normal healthy ranges, have a SmartHeart, enhance your immunity and have more energy with tips, tools and new products from Shaklee. In addition, to help you get started Shaklee is offering free membership ($19.95 value) and free shipping (up to $20) to new members.
Many years ago (35 or 40) when my personal journey into the world of healthy living and organic foods began, there was no internet; so it took a bit of effort to find information and like-minded people that shared and supported my beliefs. Organic foods were not readily available; and "natural" nutritional supplements, household and personal care products weren't all that well understood or in demand. Fortunately, since that time, awareness about the benefits of organic foods and living a healthy lifestyle has grown dramatically. However, now we have too many experts and companies jumping on the "organic/natural/green" bandwagons and pushing their theories and products! It can be very confusing and misleading. Below, Dr. Chaney does a great job of explaining the benefits of organic foods; and even more importantly, why you sometimes need to look beyond "organic."
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words! Well I guess that's true because my recent blog post "Ladies, Ditch the Bra" from Fearless Parent, which included the image of that turquoise bra got a lot of attention! If you didn't read the article, check it out and share it and this post with the women you care about. Ditching the bra just might be the "simplest solution" for breast health that you've ever heard; and if you just can't bring yourself to ditching the bra, at least unhook more often and remove those underwires!
In my August 7th post, I mention the book "Dressed to Kill - The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras" by Medical Anthropologists, Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Ross Grismeijer. (The book is available below.)
Singer and Grismeijer have several excellent, well researched articles on breast health and breast cancer on their "Killer Culture" website. You can view them here. They also offer an opportunity to participate in no-cost, no-risk self studies, including one on breast health.
