Mark Sisson explores twenty-fiver safer alternatives to store-bought cosmetics.
Two weeks ago, I introduced you to five cosmetics ingredients you should avoid. These are chemicals you’ll often find in things like shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, sunblocks, and makeups – you know, the stuff you’re covering yourself in everyday. Cosmetics manufacturers use these ingredients to improve their product’s ability to clean, moisturize, beautify, or improve an odor, but they often do lots of other bad stuff in the process. So the question is, do these products need these chemicals to work like we want them to, or are there alternative products that manage to use more natural and/or less harmful ingredients while still getting the job done? Indeed, there are, and today I’m going to share my findings with you. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola examines the six most common vitamin and mineral deficiencies and how to remedy them.
Eating a balanced whole-food diet, such as described in my nutrition plan, is a foundational requirement for optimal nutrition. It can be quite difficult to get sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals from your diet if you do not eat real food.
Unfortunately, even if you do eat well, how and where your food was grown can also influence your nutritional intake. Soil quality, for example, can significantly influence the levels of certain nutrients in your food, even if you eat organic. Read more

If you struggle with weight gain or infertility, cutting out ALL carbs may be the solution, says Kelly Hogan.
My mom never struggled with weight. She has always had an incredible figure, so she didn't really think about sugar or fat when she fed us kids. Like most parents in the '80s, it just wasn't on her radar, but it did start to affect me. By the end of middle school, I considered myself heavy. And while most people experience the freshman 15 in college, I gained more like the freshman 50.I tried every diet imaginable. I would starve myself down and then regain twice as much. I tried a diet of only pickles. I tried to see how many days I could go without eating solid food. I tried all kinds of nutty stuff. I also did regular things, like cutting calories and exercising, but I could never stay not-fat. Read more

Thomas Corriher says some common surgeries are done more to make a profit than to benefit the patient. Find out which ones.
According to the World Health Organization, the United States is ranked 38th in life expectancy, indicating that its standard medical practices are inferior to Cuba, South Korea, Costa Rica, Guadeloupe, Singapore, and 31 other nations.

Standard medicine in the U.S. is the world’s most expensive, and yet it is among the least safe. Read more

The indoor lifestyle is a recipe for disaster. You need sunlight everywhere you can get it, says Ryan Banister.
With the apparent elimination of rickets at the turn of 20th century, following the discovery of the role that vitamin D plays in the elimination of this disease, most may think that vitamin D deficiency is a problem of the past. While vitamin D deficiency is not often found in North America, insufficiency is still very common. This should not be surprising, being that there has been an unprecedented increase of indoor computer use as social media and remote-access work continue to rise in popularity. The acclimatization of modern people to a lifestyle that is primarily indoors is a recipe for disaster when considering the importance of vitamin D and bone health. The following will discuss some of the major reasons why you need as much sunlight exposure as you can obtain within reasonable limits and how you can remove the primary obstacles that could be in your way.

A study reveals how lack of sleep leaves us wanting to eat more throughout the day.
People who do not get enough sleep at night are more likely to overeat during the day, scientists have found.
British researchers discovered sleep deprivation can be linked to taking on an extra 385 calories a day – enough to pile on the pounds – as people ate more fatty food and protein.
Even though they spent more time awake, they did no more physical activity than people who had a full night’s sleep and so did not burn up any more calories Read more

Sex is better for your memory than Sudoku according to health expert Delia McCabe.
Sex has the reputation for being a great form of exercise - a lively session between the sheets is roughly equivalent to 20 minutes of doubles tennis or walking uphill, 33 minutes of golf on a driving range, 40 minutes of yoga or 19 minutes of light rowing.
And research is now showing that sex provides a ’triple-whammy’ of benefits by combining a workout for the heart and lungs, the release of hormones that could lower stress and the production of new brain cells. Read more
