For Your Well-Being

These are the questions what the people generally make formally or informally to the friends, relatives, specialists or the experienced ones and the answers given are also some sort of hear-say. I would welcome if they are added and/or attributed authentically. Further, none should rely on information provided here for health problems. Any questions regarding health should be addressed to own physician or other healthcare provider.

Question No.1: Are there really bugs in my eyebrows?
Ans.: The average clean face may contain thousands of tiny 8-legged relatives to spiders, called face mites. They live in your eyebrows and eye-flashes, feeding on dead skin cells and secretions. They are so efficient at digesting that they have no excretory opening.

Question No.2: Who gets more antibiotics – animals or humans?
Ans.: 70% of the antibiotics sold in America are given to cattle, to combat aidosis, which they acquire by being fed corn, which is not a natural part of a cow’s diet. Cows can only live for about 6 months on the corn diet, which makes them obese. They are slaughtered before they are killed by the corn diet.

Question No.3: Can green tea help my memory?
Ans.: A Japanese study of people over 70 revealed that those who drank 2-3 cups of green tea daily scored better on cognitive tests. The more they drank, the better they performed. This may explain why dementia rates, including Alzheimer’s disease, are lower in Japan than in the United States.

Question No.4: How long should I wait before I may see my doctor with a sinus infection? Ans.: After a week, 75% of sinus infections clear up on their own, especially if they are mild. Saline nasal rinses have been shown to be effective at relieving sinus symptoms. Oil of oregano (not the oregano in you pantry) is also effective at combating sinus and bronchitis symptoms.

Question No.5: How often do doctors give their patients sugar pills?
Ans.: A new survey reveals that 45% of doctors have given patients a placebo medication or a pill with no active ingredients. The study also reveals that 96% of doctors believe in the therapeutic value of the placebo effect.

Question No.6: How much difference does diabetes make for my heart?
Ans.: Those over 40 with diabetes can expect that their heart has aged by 15 years, on average. Regular exercise, watching your blood sugar carefully and following a low-glyemic diet is the best antidote.

Question No.7: Can I derive any health benefits from walking only 3 days a week?
Ans.:
In one 3-month study, the participants dropped at least 5 points in systolic blood pressure from only 3 brisk half – hour walks per week, they also took an inch off their waistlines.

Question No.8: Is there a low-calorie nut?
Ans.: Chestnuts are low in calories compared to other nuts. Six roasted chestnuts have only 27 grams of good carbohydrates and just 124 calories.

Question No.9: What’s a simple way of lowering blood pressure?
Ans.: In a study, 60 adults were asked to refrain from salting their foods and eating salty food. As a result, after 6 weeks, their systolic blood pressure dropped by 8%, cutting their stroke risk by one-third and their heart disease risk by 25%.

Question No.10: Is it okay to microwave broccoli? it’s handier than steaming.
Ans.: Steam it. Microwaving strips most of the antioxidant benefits from vegetables. Add selenium-rich sunflower seeds, nuts, or mushrooms to your steamed broccoli high in the super-nutrient sulforaphane. Broccoli is 13 times more potent when combined with the mineral selenium.
