Good Habits That Are Bad For Our Health
You think that you know what's good for you and for your health? You might be surprised after you read this.There are some habits that the majority of people think they are good,and can actually be bad for your health.
Although many people are convinced that it is good to drink eight glasses of water daily,some studies show that in fact there is no scientific evidence to support this theory and that drinking excessive amounts of water can be dangerous.Drinking to much water may reduce the concentration of salt in the blood.In addition,water lovers should know that the healthiest drink is the water in glass bottles because the chemicals from the plastic bottles can disrupt the hormone levels.
Talking about your problems
When someone talks about their problems it may be a good way to feel little better,but a research has shown that certain talking points about the problems,can be bad for our health. The research has shown that telling your problems and analyzing them with friends can lead to major difficulties,stress and depression.
The next time when you want to talk to someone about your problems, try to focus for the solution, and not just talking about the problem again and again.
We all know that vitamins are good for us, but the constant use of dietary supplements may harm your health.Many studies have shown that high doses of vitamin supplements such as iron, magnesium and vitamin B6, increase the mortality of older women, while the excessive consumption of vitamin E in men can increase the risk of suffering from prostate cancer. Although many people have recommended using vitamins,for most people it would be better to eat fruits and vegetables which will provide to our body all the necessary nutrients.
The truth behind a flawed vitamin E studyReplyDelete
Should you ditch your vitamin E?
The headline was disheartening, especially because it seemed so cut and dry.
“Vitamin E May Hike Risk of Prostate Cancer.”
In the trial, men who took vitamin E supplements showed a “slight but statistically significant” increase in diagnoses of prostate cancer.
Could it be true? Could a nutrient that we consider absolutely essential to our health actually be harmful?
I had to find out the truth. And it didn’t take long to find out that, once again, the mainstream had completely botched things up.
This isn’t the first time they’ve tried to bring down vitamin E. Back in 2005, headlines claiming vitamin E could kill you blazed across TV screens and newspaper pages. The team here at Nutrition and Healing pretty handily debunked that study, pointing out a slew of flaws they probably hoped we’d miss.
And here we are again. All it took was a little digging to find the major flaw in the recent vitamin E study: the vitamin E itself.
You see, instead of using one of the natural forms of vitamin E that’s been proven over and over again to be essential to maintaining good health, they went ahead and used a synthetic. And not just any synthetic–they used the worst kind you can get. The 400 IU these men were taking every day was all-rac-alpha-tocopheryl acetate, which is pretty much junk.
Dr. Wright likes to call patent medications “space alien molecules.” And manufactured synthetic forms of vitamins are no different.
Now, had they conducted this study using an actual NATURAL type of vitamin E, like d-alpha-tocopherol or mixed tocopherols, the findings might actually be valuable. Instead, they come off as yet another pathetic (and ultimately unsuccessful) attempt to undermine natural healing.
Sorry, but we’re not buying it. In fact, there’s a little bit of an ironic twist here. You might remember a study I covered in an e-Tip at about this time last year…a study showing that a constituent of vitamin E actually could FIGHT prostate cancer!
So take your vitamin E without fear–as long as it’s the natural form with mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols that Dr. Wright has always recommended. If you’re not sure your supplements are up to snuff, check with a doctor skilled in natural medicine.
