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.

1 in 3 New Yorkers Have H. Pylori and Don’t Even Know It

 

If you live in New York, there is a one in three chance that you have H. pylori and not even know it. Helicobactor pylori, H. pylori for short, is a stomach disease that can lie dormant within the gut for a person’s entire life. The disease can also flare-up at any given moment and wreak painful havoc within the digestive tract.
Often mis-diagnosed because of its symptoms, many people with H. pylori suffer with symptoms like acid reflux, heartburn, loss of appetite and severe abdominal pain states trade.nosis.com. Even when H.pylori is suspected, the stomach disease is not easy to diagnose and treat. The bacteria which causes the disease hides itself between the lining of the stomach and the stomach wall, not actually in the stomach or digestive tract. The bacteria can also cause stomach ulcer and/or stomach cancer.
A stool sample usually reveals the presence of the H.pylori bacteria and a round of antibiotics are the standard treatment. However, even when the bacteria has been eradicated from the host’s body, it is prone to return. But at least the second time around the person and his or her doctor will be familiar with the symptoms and can prescribe effective treatment early on.

Milk Does A Body Bad

For years the dairy industry has been trying to convince people that drinking milk is good for them. In fact they coined the phrase, “milk does a body good.” In reality, the truth may be just the opposite. Humans are the only mammals that drink milk after the first three years of life. All other mammals only drink milk until they are mature enough to eat solid food. That should really tell us something. Andrew Heiberger is quick to point out that human beings were meant to drink milk, that is true, but they were only meant to drink milk while they were young and being nursed by their mothers. In reality milk has all of the essential nutrients that a baby needs to thrive and grow, and that is the reason that it is so beneficial for a baby to be breastfed for at least the first one to three years of life.

After the first three years of life, a human really does not need to drink milk. Cow milk is made for baby cows, it is not really made for human consumption. Since that is the fact it is little wonder why so many people are suffering from lactose intolerance. in reality we are all lactose intolerant, because we should not be digesting milk. Milk can be linked to many childhood infections, allergies, and stomach issues. There are many different fruits and vegetables that can give a person calcium, so Americans should follow many Asian and Indian countries and not use milk as a staple drink in their diets.

Could Drinking too Much Milk Be Dangerous?

Milk is a part of most people’s daily diet. It can be found in everything from ice cream and yogurt to cheese and chocolate. It tastes good, and it’s supposed to be good for you. Doctors and nutritionists have said for a long time that we need milk to help support our bones. The calcium in milk is supposed to help kids grow big and strong, and it’s also supposed to help adults avoid diseases like osteoporosis. The milk industry has surely driven these points home. But new research suggests that milk may not be all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it may be hurting us more than it is helping us. Better change up your Starbucks order Sam Tabar and get that milk out of your coffee.

Milk is supposed to be good for our bones and cut the risk of fractures because it has large amounts of vitamin D in it. But the study that was conducted recently by researchers in Sweden says that the large amounts of sugar in milk are actually causing serious inflammation. People who drink 3 or more glasses of milk each day could increase their risk of death. While the doctors and scientists behind the study continue to recommend that individuals get adequate amounts of vitamin D each day for bone health and overall wellness, they suggest that people focus their intakes of vitamin D on foods like yogurt and cheese. Overall, it was found that these foods contained less sugars and were less harmful.
