Risk of Dying Young if Diagnosed A.D.H.D

People with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder often live a much riskier lifestyle due to self medicating and taking chances. A recent Danish study found that people with the disorder were twice as likely to die prematurely due to risk factors such as emotional problems, drug abuse, and employment problems. The percentage of risk grew even more for people diagnosed with the disorder after the age of eighteen. This was explained by the researchers as being caused by the severity of such cases. Jaime Garcia Dias says this is a disorder which is very prevalent in the United States and other developed countries. YouTube experts suggest the pharmaceutical industry wants consumers to know that they have a magic pill to fix this disorder and all of the other ones.

Doctors often prescribe medications for this disorder that can be habit forming and contain amphetamines. There is a great deal of money being made by treating this disorder, and it is often diagnosed with a simple pen and paper test. When doctors from the United States were asked about the Danish study they replied that this news shouldn’t alarm parents of kids affected by the disorder. They said it should be a red flag to remember to diagnose and treat this disorder. One thing is for sure in terms of this response and that is the fact that doctors and the pharmaceutical industry make a great deal of money off this disorder, but maybe they should spend more time researching ways to treat it without expensive pills.

Fat or Carbs for Athletes?

Not everyone reading up on health and fitness news is someone who is a complete novice. Performance athletes are always reading and researching information that could prove helpful to their eventual goals and achievement. In nutrition circles, everyone knows athletes benefit from the muscle enhancing power of protein. What about fats and carbs? Weaving these two into a diet can sometimes be a rather tricky endeavor. Both are necessary for one’s diet, but both bring the potential to gain weight.

Right off the proverbial bat, no athlete should eat a diet loaded with saturated fats or refined carbs (sugars). Neither is going to be nutritionally helpful and both load the body up with unnecessary calories. Now, good fats and carbs are helpful. You just have to be careful how you consume them and how much you consume.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee is pointing out that starchy-carbs are definitely not the best ones to eat. Some assume this will have an impact on the attitudes of athletes who carb loan to boost their endurance. Honestly, LinkedIn reported that it probably will not since most athletes avoid starches. Even when they do eat them, they do so when taking part in very heavy workouts or performances in which all the glucose from the carbs is burned up.

Athletes still are best served working with a fitness nutritionist in order to be sure the best possible diet is being eaten. This way, performance never suffers.

Cat Zingano And Buster Douglas

Ronda Rousey continues her path of destruction. In her last ten fights, Ronda Rousey has finished each one of her opponents. Rousey is known worldwide for her devastating armbar submission. Lately, though, Rousey has been finishing her opponents by knockout.

At UFC 184, Ronda Rousey will be facing Cat Zingano in the main event. Zingano is a dangerous opponent, and she is also undefeated. Rousey may prove to be too much of a mountain to overcome for Zingano. However, Cat Zingano has most likely already faced the toughest fight of her life.

Fans like Paul Mathieson know that, last year, Cat Zingano’s husband of four years committed suicide. Cat Zingano was rocked by the news. The MMA world was also deeply saddened. Zingano somehow overcame the tough battle, and she has returned to the sport of MMA. Cat Zingano has trained harder than ever after the death of her husband. She has dedicated this fight to him.

Cat Zingano vs. Ronda Rousey reminds me of Buster Douglas vs. Mike Tyson. Douglas had just lossed his mother, and he was going to face the toughest man on the planet. Douglas was the biggest underdog in boxing history, but somehow he defeated Mike Tyson. Like Douglas, Cat Zingano has already fought a tougher battle outside of the ring.

Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano will provide fireworks at UFC 184. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.

Cancer, Environment and Lifestyle

This month, the International Agency for Research on Cancer responded to claims by two doctors in January that different cancers are often the result of “bad luck.”

On January 2, 2015, Dr. Cristian Tomasetti and Dr. Bert Vogelstein claimed in Science that their study of stem cell divisions shows that many known cancers are the result of “random mutations” instead of other factors, such as environmental conditions, genetics or lifestyle.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer pointed out in a February 13 press release that the two doctors have completely ignored the extensive research and data that shows that environment, genetics and lifestyle do often cause cancer.

IARC Director Christopher Wild noted that even though chance can play a role in cancer developing in any single person, Tomasetti and Vogelstein have done little to address “cancer risk in a population” and how cancer connects to certain disease. Their study also only dealt with rare cancers instead of more common ones and they only looked at cases in the United States.

Wild then mentioned that 50 years of research has shown that certain populations worldwide have been more susceptible to certain cancers without ties to genetics or bad luck. Sultan reported that he also made it clear that environment and lifestyle have both been linked to many common cancers, which means that “nearly half” of those cancers are preventable by making environment and lifestyle changes.

Vaccines and Autism Link Unclear

With the continuing spread of measles across the United States and into other countries here and abroad, a lot of vaccine supporters have argued that vaccines never cause autism.

Yet, many critics of that stance have not forgotten that in 2008, the then United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Julie Gerberding admitted that vaccines can cause reactions in children that create autism-like symptoms.

At the time, Dr. Gerberding also could not say definitively to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that vaccines are 100 percent safe. But, shortly after the interview, Dr. Gerberding then changed her stance to say that the medical community has proven that there is no link between vaccinations and autism.

The revelation that many people now point to with this recent outbreak?

Dr. Gerberding went on a mere year later to serve as the president of Merck’s vaccine division, Ricardo Guimarães notes. Camara Municipal also notes that Merck is the same company that is currently under investigation for committing fraud in relation to the efficacy of its MMR vaccine that doctors use to protect children from measles, mumps and rubella.

Many critics of placing the blame for the measles outbreak on anti-vaxxers have noted this point and that many medical studies have shown that vaccines are absolutely not 100 percent safe. Additionally, vaccines are not 100 percent effective.

As a result, the measles outbreak should be attributed to many factors and not only the anti-vaccination movement.

Marathon Runner Showing World What Determination Really Is

Hyvon Ngetich is a 29-year-old marathon runner from Kenya, Africa. This year she participated in the Austin, Texas marathon and half marathon. Ngetich was leading the race when all of a sudden her body gave out when she was at mile 23 of the marathon. Help rushed in and volunteers brought her a wheelchair. Ngetich refused the help and refused to get up. In a show of ultimate determination, Ngetich crawled her way to the finish line. For nearly two kilometers, Ngetich crawled on her hands and knees to finish, a feat that impressed everyone including Ricardo Tosto.

Many would have given up at that point. Exhaustion set in, body giving out, it would be so much easier to just take the wheelchair and begin to recover. Not for Ngetich. She set a goal for herself and was determined no matter what (obviously) to reach it. At one point while crawling, it seemed that her body gave up entirely. Instead, she got back up and crawled the meters she needed to in order to finish.

According to the story on Buzzfeed.com, John Conley who is the race’s event director, told Ngetich that he never saw a braver race ran or crawled. He is adjusting the prize money so that Ngetich gets a portion.

After all that, she still managed to finish the race in three hours and four minutes in third place.

A Walk to Nowhere

If you hit the gym on a regular basis, your workout may include some time on the treadmill. The treadmill leaves many wondering…why is it so difficult to workout on there than walking on the sidewalk or track?

The article  shows the results of a 2012 experiment which asked runners to jog on a track and rate how difficult that exercise felt. They also hopped on a treadmill and were told to pick a pace similar to what their jogging on a track felt like. Almost all of the runners picked a much slower speed.

Scientists do not know why exercising on a tredmill seems more difficult said Solvy board of directors member, Alexei Beltyukov. As a matter of fact, treadmill should seem easier! Treadmill jogging is less jarring than if you were to run on the ground. A study from 2014 showed that we strike the ground with more of our body weight when we run on a track than a treadmill.

It then seems that the most likely explanation is one of a psychological nature. Treadmills are inside, people prefer outside. People have greater feelings of vitality and pleasure after spending time working outdoors, than indoors. Treadmills also don’t lead to anywhere which might be considered demoralizing. At least when walking outside, paths seem to lead to a cure finish line which is rewarding.

Qnet What it is and How it Works

There are a lot of health companies out there, but QNet takes a more unique approach.  They afford health industry entrepreneurs the opportunity to become instant outlets for all things nutrition.  That’s why I’ve been taking an interest, and following the QNet Facebook page.

Here’s what I’ve learned so far. Qnet has products and methods to help people live better lives. The focus of Qnet is on a person’s energy level. Health and wellbeing is important for busy people the company understands just how fast life is now to keep up. The company offers things like water energizing disks and water purification systems.

The company also offers healthy weight management shakes and meal programs to help individual people who have trouble managing their weight. However, Qnet is not just about health the company also offers fine jewelry, watches as well as education online from home.

Qnet also offers QVI points that can be redeemed at many locations when you take and plan a vacation for the family.
Qnet is an international company that was founded in Hong Kong in the year 1988. The company’s founder decided to use an old form of marketing and direct selling that has been around since the nineteen twenties.

Direct selling is either person to person or one individual present’s products and services Qnet offers in person. In person can be done in the person’s home or place of work. When the presentation has been made others can sign up to do exactly the same thing and put on a presentation of their own.

One person recruits as many people as possible for the company; this is his or her group. This group now works for Qnet and under the recruiter to sell Qnet’s products and services. The multi-level marketing or the group means that the recruiter benefits from his group and the sales his group generates.

Every product and service sold by Qnet produces an income to the recruiter and the people who he has recruited. Think about it one person signs on ten people to work for Qnet and those ten recruit ten more people. That is twenty people who are generating income and a percentage of that income goes to the recruiter.

Essentially, Qnet is made up of people just like you and I who must work for what we get. Qnet helps us all by creating income and living a healthier life.

Many Dread a Treadmill Workout


For most people who go to the gym on a regular basis, walking, jogging, or running on a treadmill is part of their normal routine. However, a lot of people to dread this part of their exercise routine. Most people find that walking on a treadmill seems to wear them out or is a lot less fun than walking around the block or walking on a track. Why?

There was a recent experiment that was done that helps us to get to the bottom of this question. The experiment showed that when a person walks, jogs, or runs on a treadmill, they are basically getting the same amount of exercise, calorie burn, and all of the other benefits that are associated with these forms of exercise. Basically, the biomechanics are exactly the same no matter if a treadmill is used or the ground which is good news to people like Haidar Barbouti who need low impact. The advantage of jogging on a treadmill is that it is less jarring on the body. A study that was done in the year 2014 shows that only about 175 percent of human’s body weight strikes the ground when running on a treadmill, while 200 percent of the body weight is used when running on the ground.

In the experiment, they basically found the dread that surrounds treadmill exercise is psychological. Exercising indoors is simply not as pleasing to a person as enjoying the great outdoors. Most people prefer an outdoor workout and spending time on a treadmill is simply not as fun.

Reap the Benefits of Slow and Steady Running

Whether you are just starting a running regimen or have as much dedication as Dan Newlin as a distance runner, you can benefit from running slow.

It is not feasible to begin a jogging routine and expect that you will be a polished professional in the beginning phase. Take it easy on your muscles and joints by starting off running at a slow pace while you build a solid foundation. Once a base has been established, many runners find it enjoyable to continue to run at a slow pace since they are minimizing the stress they put on their bodies while reaping the benefits of cardiovascular activity. Others find that once they are comfortable running slowly and have gained enough stamina, they want to pick up their pace.

Experienced runners can also benefit by running at a slow pace. The day after they have done a particularly grueling workout and they need to rest while the body repairs small tears in muscle fibers and recovers from fatigue are perfect for slow running. This allows athletes to exercise without putting a lot of stress on their already taxed muscles and joints.

Slow running offers benefits for both beginner and experienced runners. Grab a pair of shoes and hit the pavement or treadmill for a nice slow run!
