How Blue Light Affects Your Memory For Good Or Bad

How Blue Light Affects Your Memory For Good Or Bad

Light is proving to become more essential for living and the science behind this phenomenon is quite interesting. In a recent study, we learned that actually light affects your memory as well. As many of us already know, light has a huge impact on us physiologically ranging from regulation of our biological clocks to levels in alertness. Light only has these effects however as they travel through retinal ganglion cells or RGCs.

How Blue Light Affects Your Memory For Good Or Bad

For normal vision, light is detected by the basic retinal rods and cones then through the RGCs. This is how our body perceives light and gathers information as our brain constructs it into something we understand. In recent years however, the effect of blue wavelength light has begun to be explored and how that light affects your memory may surprise you. A study lasting four weeks in an office building found that workers who were exposed to blue-enriched white light showed increased alertness, performance, positive mood, and concentration. Compared to four weeks before, where they were sluggish and not as focused under regular white lights.

Surprisingly, this was not the only study conducted. Using a controlled group of thirty five young adults consisting of 18 females and 17 males all aged 18 – 32; the participants were put through controlled light exposure followed by cognitive testing. They were asked to drink a “normal amount” of coffee before coming in and were exposed to 30 minutes of a blue light washout period by sitting in a dark room with two amber lights. This was to reduce any light effects they had that morning. They were then treated with another 30 minute exposure to either blue or amber light to see exactly what effects this would have on cognitive ability.

In the end, the results showed a marginal difference between the two but one that could actually prove useful. When it comes down to it, blue light affects your memory positively as well as other difficult thinking situations. The study proved that most subjects when exposed to the blue light, were able to recall older memories at least a couple hundred milliseconds faster. This may not seem beneficial but comes down to reaction time and cognitive speed. The major benefit of receiving blue light before work would be better brain function and productivity over time. There are a couple of commercially available lamps out there that you can pick up today but before you purchase, be sure to check if this benefits you enough to make your house or office a land awash with blue. That’s it for today and until next time, think healthy, be healthy!

Fire Hydrant Workout

Fire Hydrant Workout

The Fire Hydrant Workout is not extremely new but is making its way through gyms lately due to its ease of effort and focused area of work. For this Workout Wednesday, we’ll dive into what this exercise works out and how you can add it into your regime.

Fire Hydrant Workout

The fire hydrant position gets its name from, well, how a dog interacts with a fire hydrant. While that may be pretty funny (it really is!), there’s still a pretty decent exercise waiting within. This workout focuses on the abductors which are a group of muscles located in the buttocks and lateral hip region. Essentially, it’s a workout for the whole hip and buttock region. Better yet, you can do it at home without any equipment!

The main reason we would want to strengthen these muscles is because a lot of them are used in walking, jogging, and running. While most people may point to their calves or thighs, your hips and buttock are essential for pushing off and power. Not to mention, they can be considered glamorous for both Men and Women alike when toned. So let’s see how to perform the Fire Hydrant Workout shall we?

This video was found on YouTube and I found it wonderful for a visual demonstration. I also want to write out some steps and tips to keep in mind while performing the exercise.

  1. Place yourself so your hands and knees are on the ground. They should run parallel and, for a little extra core work, you can also try pulling in your stomach to increase the strength requirement.
  2. Keeping your hands in place and not bending your elbow, raise your knee up so it runs parallel with your back. Imagine again, how a dog excuses itself and emulate that motion.
  3. The motion should be on a three count while heading up, a one second pause at the top of the rep, then return to your resting position on a two count. That will maximize the work on the muscles.
  4. Repeat this step for as many reps as you can (aim for 5 to start on one side as the motion is a little jarring at first). Once done, repeat this motion on your other side. That will make one set.
  5. Try to start with three sets of five reps each and if that feels too easy, increase reps as you feel necessary. These can be improved by adding weighted wrist bands or ankle bracelets and rolling them up to the knee or thigh.

And that’s the basic Fire Hydrant workout. This can be included in a leg day at home or even while training as it targets some areas that are usually not hit quite as hard regularly. When your calves are on their last breath, your thighs are burning, and your butt has a little bit of a hit, try adding some of these as a finisher for your hips and call it a day.

Until next time, think healthy, be healthy!

Fitness Myth Busting: Egg Yolks

Fitness Myth Busting: Egg Yolks

Welcome to our first weekly myth busting session where we’ll focus on one widely accepted fitness or nutrition fact, and prove that it may not be as factual as you may think. Today, we’re going to cover a very quick look at egg yolks. Too often, at the table next to us, we hear the order go out for an omelette with potatoes, cheese, bacon, and all the fix’ins. Then just before the waiter goes to give the chef their gargantuan order, the customer turns and reminds them “Oh, and egg whites only please.” The waiter smiles as he knows this increases the price of the plate and the customer smiles because they believe they just saved their diet by excluding the yolk.

Fitness Mythbusting: Egg Yolks

Egg yolks have been demonized simply because the cholesterol is supposedly hidden with this yellow part of the egg. Well let’s very quickly bust the myth that egg yolks are inherently bad for you! In more than just a few clinical trials, eggs have not been found to have any direct correlation between themselves and cardiovascular disease. This includes the yolk as well. The only known cases have been in patients that already have a pre-existing condition such as diabetes or hyperglycemia. Further, the cholesterol, proteins, fats, and other nutrients found within eggs are largely GOOD for you. So why did this stigma begin?

Well, if you’ve ever listened to the news, you’ll know why. The media often looks to a certain food or entertainment source to vilify if they can’t identify an exact person or thing. Do you remember when milk, red meat, and even wheat were bad for you? Three things that man has been eating for most of our existence yet now (according to the media), they no longer hold the nutritional values that they used to. Egg yolks like anything else, are great in moderation. Just like drinking your favorite bottle of scotch in one sitting is bad for you, eating a whole carton of egg yolks will be just as bad. However, by choosing when and moderating how much to consume, you will live a happier life not having to avoid those little yellow dots of sunshine.

As always, think healthy, be healthy!

Monday Morning Motivation

Monday Morning Motivation

Another major part of staying in shape and fit is motivation. While we are all motivated differently, there are some days that we can agree take a bit longer to get going than others. While some may say Friday, and others Wednesday, according to a few major studies, Monday morning is actually the most depressing day. That’s why I thought I’d share some ideas to get some Monday Morning Motivation!

Monday Morning Motivation

The study that was conducted in 2011 by Marmite (a British food spread company) found that 50% of all employees at a company arrived late to work and would only really be productive for 3 1/2 hours on average on Mondays. If you work full time, then that means more than half your day is spent being extremely un-productive which, in the long run, can actually cause more depression. What’s more, the Telegraph reports that most people won’t even smile until 11:16AM on a Monday which, to a guy that smiles all the time, sounds absurd! So how we can beat the Monday blues?

On a Monday, when you rustle yourself out of bed, remember that this day sets the pace for the whole week. If your Monday is piss poor, expect the rest of your week to follow this same trend. Try and push yourself to be more productive on this first day of the week by thinking of things you normally wouldn’t. How about when you wake up, instead of throwing the alarm to the ground, you set the alarm a little earlier than other days and make yourself a nice breakfast that you can sit down and enjoy. Allowing your brain time to acclimate to the day and making your body happy with great food is a perfect way to get more motivated. Of course, don’t overindulge as that will lead to a sleepy lunch break.

Another awesome way to stay motivated is not to think of work while you’re there. I know, that sounds like terrible advice, but focusing on what you’re doing while you’re doing it just adds to the fact that it’s not the weekend. Instead, why not think of a fun activity to do once you get out of work. Whether it’s something like just getting a nice workout in or seeing that special someone, take the time to dedicate yourself to that.

My personal favorite activity is watching a comedy show on the smartphone on my breaks during the day. This activity, I find, wakes up my mind almost instantly and has me laughing so when I head back to the desk, I am in a better mood after every break. Sure my coworkers who pass by see me laughing like a madman with headphones plugged in, but at the end of the day, they also thank me for having a good attitude on the worst day of the week, Mondays.

Monday morning motivation can take many different forms but finding a way to make them a day you look forward to rather than dread can boost your productivity as well as general outlook of the week. At the core of all motivation lies your self however so find something uniquely you. Whether that’s knitting during breaks, calling your friends during lunch, or going on a movie date after work, Mondays don’t have to be unbearable if you find something that makes them awesome.

Protein Rich Chocolate Pudding

Protein Rich Chocolate Pudding

We all fondly remember those days when our parents would sit in the kitchen with the store bought pack of Jello Pudding and whip up this tasty treat. The problem is, now that we’re older and looking to stay in shape, chocolate pudding is not the best food to get if you’re trying to stop gaining weight. But what if we can make this treat into a healthy workout incentive? This is the idea behind today’s Sugar Free Sunday, Protein Rich Chocolate Pudding. Yes, I hear the contradiction but we have to start slow!

Protein Rich Chocolate Pudding

To begin, let’s look at the nutritional stats of a standard cup of chocolate pudding you can buy from the store.

1 Serving Size (28g) of Jello Instant Chocolate Pudding With 1/2 Cup 2% Milk

  • 100 Calories
  • 0g Fat
  • 0% of any Vitamin
  • 18mg sodium
  • 18g sugar

Not exactly the best dish since there is almost no nutritional advantages for eating this. Now let’s take a look at our recipe!

Protein Rich Chocolate Pudding


  • 1/4th a cup of Dutch cocoa powder
  • 1/8th teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4ths teaspoon of vanilla extract (Pure preferred)
  • 1 pinch of uncut Stevia OR 1/4th cup of sugar, maple syrup, or honey
  • 2 cups Fairlife 2% reduced fat milk (the secret ingredient)
  • Another 1/2th cup of Fairlife 2% reduced fat milk mixed with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. (Don’t worry, the rest of the ingredients almost negate this part).
  • OPTIONAL: Add in 3.5 oz of chocolate chips or shattered chocolate bar


  1. Heat the 2 cups of Fairlife in a saucepan over medium high heat while mixing in the salt, cocoa powder, and your sweetener of choice. Be sure to keep an eye on this as milk burns extremely fast. Lower heat if it begins to cook too quickly.
  2. While the milk begins to warm up in the sauce pan, whisk the cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk in a bowl until it dissolves.
  3. Once the milk is warm, add in your cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Once it begins to boil, stir CONSTANTLY for two minutes.
  4. Lower heat to a simmer for an additional minute then turn off the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract (and chocolate pieces if you chose to add these in) until it all melts together.
  5. Put the pudding into the fridge to thicken and it will be good to go within a few hours. Remember, the longer it stays in the fridge, the more it will thicken so be sure to consume when you’re ready to enjoy.

Now that we’ve figured out our protein rich chocolate pudding. Let’s look at the nutrition facts! This recipe should make a good 3 servings and each serving contains:

  • 172 Calories
  • .198g of Sodium
  • 6.2g of Fat
  • 22.3g of Carbs
  • 5g of Sugar
  • 14.2g of Protein (WOW)
  • 5.7g of Dietary Fiber
  • 8.7% of Daily Vitamin A
  • 34.3% of Daily Calcium
  • 1% of Daily Iron
  • .02g of Cholestorol

And that’s just in one serving! Amazing right? Not only does it prove to be delicious but also packs a punch for a post heavy workout reward. While there is still some sugar involved, it is definitely a nice alternative to the typical store bought and tastes just as great. As with any good recipe though, experiment around and see if you can’t boost the healthy portion of the dessert while keeping the taste.

Until next time, think healthy, be healthy!

DON'T Try The Bulletproof Diet

DON’T Try The Bulletproof Diet

As with any fitness trend, the Bulletproof Diet is making headlines and for seemingly good reason. Creator, Dave Asprey, supposedly developed this diet over the course of 15 years and $300,000 invested. The core ideal of this diet is that by increasing your body’s performance to its peak, you can achieve better weight loss, more concentration, and overall happiness. While this is generally true, his boasts of helping you achieve this include drinking a concoction in lieu of breakfast daily. However, I urge you: don’t try The Bulletproof Diet. Allow me to tell you exactly what is in the concoction you’ll be consuming daily.

DON'T Try The Bulletproof Diet

Coffee and butter.

That’s right, the Bulletproof Diet consists of drinking Asprey’s invention, Bulletproof Coffee, which consists of 2 cups of coffee, two tablespoons of “grass fed, unsalted butter”, and a tablespoon of MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil. If you’re having trouble understanding what the immediate problem is, then please read our post on butter alternatives to understand our beef with butter. However, for the sake of this article, let’s dive right in.

To begin, Coffee, at its best, is a negative calorie creator. That means, drinking coffee actually burns calories since it boosts your metabolic rate and fat loss initially. Over time, your body becomes used to it and the losses become gains. This is partially due to your body realizing caffeine as a necessity and, for anyone who has suffered from caffeine dependency, it ends up being a bear to get from under. Now imagine drinking two cups of coffee in the morning, of course this would do what I mentioned above in a bigger way, but it also DOUBLES the amount of caffeine most of us consume before work.

Next, we add in the butter, which according to Asprey, will curb your appetite as it’s rich in omega 3 fats and the usual benefits of butter. We all know better. Beyond this, the MCT oil is actually legitimate as there have been some case studies performed suggesting a link between fat burning and daily consumption of this or coconut oil. What is confusing though is that after your breakfast coffee, he urges dieters to add extra fat to the rest of their meals and no longer avoid red meat or high fat yielding foods.

That is where I have to return to the title of this article and once again reiterate: don’t try the bulletproof diet, it does not work. Our bodies are specially made to balance enzymes, fats, and other liquids on a daily basis. However, when we introduce a foreign object into it, our bodies react violently and quickly. So, imagine you’ve been dieting for a long time and you begin the BF diet and the first day you introduce DOUBLE the caffeine, a huge amount of unsaturated fat, and 400+ calories in a single drink. Your body will immediately react with, you guessed it, weight gain.

For that day, you’ll feel great because you’ve grabbed a lot of things your body wants. However, coffee is also a diuretic and increases the amount of water needed to drink daily to counteract the amount of liquids lost. But, more importantly, you haven’t gained any nutrition or protein yet. Remember that important part of eating right that keeps your muscles running? Instead of having a few eggs and coffee or possibly oatmeal mixed with protein powder, you only had two cups of coffee. Not having sufficient protein during breakfast regardless of how full you feel, will eventually backfire. When you obtain a good amount of protein that early, it sets the pace for the day and you feel more full than you will consuming just fat and butter that will be expelled within hours of consuming “Bulletproof” Coffee.

In an active lifestyle (4-5 workouts a week or equal exertion), eating higher fats or meats will be fine. Your body is burning fat faster than you can consume it typically and drinking this coffee probably wouldn’t curb your hunger to begin with. This would become an addition to your daily protein shake and not in lieu of it. However, for those the diet is targeting with less active lifestyles (0 – 2 workouts a week or equal exertion), this diet will have the opposite effect AND get you hooked to caffeine within a month of doing the diet. You will sing its praises for the first week and then curse its existence a few weeks later since when you miss a day of drinking it, your attitude, health, and general disposition will be completely messed up.

Again, don’t try the Bulletproof diet. While it’s great on paper, any time you see “an easy no worries” diet out there, it usually doesn’t work for people who are actually looking for this kind of thing. The best way to really begin to lose weight is to start increasing the amount of water you consume daily, then look into finding more ways to find activity that fits around your schedule. Shortcuts don’t exist in the fitness world and when they pop up, chances are they’ll end up hurting you far more than they help you.

I hope this was informative for anyone curious about this diet and until next time, think healthy, be healthy!

The Bathroom Fitness Plan

The Bathroom Fitness Plan

This may be a little of a weird topic but I want to clue you in on one of the interesting ways I find to make sure I stay fit. This one is called, the Bathroom Fitness Plan.

The Bathroom Fitness Plan

Before I dive too deep (no pun intended) I want to give you guys the scoop on exactly what it has to do with the bathroom. The Bathroom Fitness Plan doesn’t give you super overnight results but on a day when you’re too busy with work or can’t fit in the time, it adds activity when you didn’t expect it to. When I first came up with this idea, I was, like most people, rather unmotivated to stay fit. However, I did notice that as I sat at home, watching tv and drinking sodas, I would often get the call of nature. Since I’m an avid water drinker, this would occur four, maybe five times during a Netflix Binge watching session. So my bright idea was, “What if every time I go to use the bathroom, after washing my hands I got down on the floor outside and did 10 push ups?”

While that may not sound that extraordinary, let me tell you that it changed the way I look at fitness. During my first week, I knocked out 250 push ups within 5 days. While this might not seem impressive, figure in my weight and you’ll start to see why this fitness plan can actually help boost your fitness level and also your mentality.

I weigh 165 lbs of solid “something” and each time I do a push up, I’m moving that weight off the ground using my core and my arms. In one post bathroom break workout, I would have pushed 1650 lbs. By the end of a day with just five bathroom breaks, I’ll have pushed 8250 lbs. By the end of my first week attempting this, I pushed a total of 41,250lbs. Like with most exercises, it adds up quickly and with the bathroom fitness plan, my body began bulging in all the right places.

While this may seem a bit extreme for some people, try something simpler like 3 or 5 push ups to start. Then up them as you begin feeling the weight is comfortable. Not only that, but although it started as a bathroom focused activity, it eventually became just an intermittent activity you can do with anything. For instance, if you work in an office you feel comfortable getting down to do a push up in, why not set an alarm for every hour and a half to notify you it’s time to do at least 10 push ups. Before the end of your work day, you’ll have done at least 40 pushups and go home feeling like you just came from the gym on arm day.

The bathroom fitness plan may be something I made up on a whim but for homebodies or simply people who can’t commit to an hour of working out after work, give this one a try and see the results for yourself. Also, pushups are just what I did, I’m sure crunches, squats, and other exercises would add up and get you toned just as well. Have you come up with any unusual fitness plans that help you stay in shape when you’re not able to hit the gym? Why not share them in the comments below!

Inhalable Insulin & You

Inhalable Insulin & You

For anyone who is diagnosed with or know someone who has diabetes, we all understand that the age old insulin shots are not only painful but can be rather cumbersome in a public place. However, due to its necessity and quick penetration of the blood stream, we have continued to use this method for decades. That may all change as inhalable insulin has finally been developed and may change how both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is taken care of.

Inhalable Insulin & You

Afrezza, one of the forerunners for inhalable diabetes, reduces the amount of injections needed to take daily. Instead of taken dozens of injections of short acting insulin, a breath of Afrezza gives long lasting relief for both type-1 and type-2. While this is only for patients that do not suffer from respiratory issues, the ability to take away from the high requirements of healthy living should be a welcome comfort for any patient that requires insulin daily.

According to Dr. Manessis (a doctor who works with diabetic patients daily):

“What made it possible is a unique combination of molecules that micro-encapsulate the fragile insulin. This protects it until it gets deep into the lungs where it dissolves and released into the bloodstream. It also acts faster so there is an extent of its usage. There is also less risk of too low blood sugar level.”

While this isn’t an absolute cure for the disease, it should definitely prove useful to the nearly 29 million people in the US alone who have diabetes. If nothing else, for the people like myself that wince at the thought of a needle in the arm daily, inhalable insulin will offer a smart and effective alternative.

That’s it for today’s news and until next time, think healthy, be healthy.

Breathing, You're Doing It Wrong!

Breathing, You’re Doing It Wrong!

That’s right, as much as you probably think that the activity you do daily can’t be done wrong, when it comes to exercise, there is actually a fine line between maintaining a proper breathing routine and breathing too little or too much. On our first Workout Wednesday, we’re going to take a look at some different ways improper breathing can make workouts less effective and how to avoid creating a bad habit of it.

Breathing, You're Doing It Wrong!

Weighted Workouts

We’ve all been there. Sitting under a weight that’s just a little too much for us at the current time either due to fatigue or lack of proper preparation. As we push out we hold our breath in hopes that it will magically increase our strength like a mommy lifting a bus to save their child. However, when your life isn’t in danger, and honestly any time you lift a weight, this is absolutely wrong.

Workouts require many things to be effective but the most important, especially when using weights or running, are calories, water, and oxygen. Your muscles need all of these to operate effectively and when not utilized correctly, can often hurt them instead. Imagine the upper body as a balloon and as you push your oxygen in and out, it actually puffs you up and releases it naturally. Now imagine you’re putting lots of air into the balloon at once and holding it there while applying pressure on it. It’ll pop! The same thing goes with your body as when you put pressure on your arms and then on your lungs by trying to hold in air like Superman, both will give out eventually. Improper breathing can often lead to blood vessel strains, hernias, and even high blood pressure. That’s the opposite of what we want!

So how do you optimize breathing so you don’t pop under the pressure? As states in a very entertaining article on the subject “ALWAYS exhale on exertion.” To put it simply, at the actual lifting part, breathe out and when resetting to the neutral position, breathe in. This may seem a little difficult if you’re used to breathing improperly but once learned, will greatly benefit your workouts. Here’s a few tips to help during weighted workouts that can also be applied to many others.

  1. During the workout, try slowing down your reps to match your breathing. As you exhale out, reach the end of the exertion and try to time it so you hit the end of your breath at the same point. As you inhale, try to return back to the resting position right as it ends. This not only increases the length of the exercise (which makes for better workouts) but also increases the attention given to breathing correctly.
  2. Try to keep track of the 3:2 rule. This is where you breaths out for three seconds, then breathe in for two seconds. This will eventually make your reps line up with the breathing and you’ll be surprised with the results!
  3. Become a mouth breather! As long as you have some gum on hand, try breathing through your mouth during workouts. It’s far more audible than your nose and can typically help you keep track of whether or not you’ve breathed in or out recently.

Breathing, You're Doing It Wrong! 2


Ab Workouts

Ab Workouts follow the same basic principle as weighted workouts however there is something more that we’re looking to focus on to make these effective. You still want to breathe out when doing the crunch but also want to make sure that you suck in your stomach which may sound unnatural but, it’s necessary. The reasoning is when we breathe out naturally, especially if you’ve been in theater, we tend to breathe out by letting our stomachs bulge a bit. It’s a way of relaxing all the muscles in our body BUT we’re not trying to do that during a crunch! So when we crunch, we want to focus on either keeping the muscles not only tightened but resistant to the natural push of our bodies wanting to relax during an exhale. While a bit more advanced of a step, this helps avoid the dreaded “bloated ab” look. While this doesn’t apply to everyone, often the reason even after dieting, daily workouts, and 30 minutes of abs is from not sucking in while breathing out.

The only major tip I can give on this one would be to focus on your workout and make sure that you feel a pull in the proper muscle groups that these are meant to focus on. If you get up from an ab workout and don’t have a hit, you probably didn’t perform the workout right and it’s time to reconsider how you’re approaching them. Instead, slow down the reps within reason and see if you can’t feel your abs contracting the way you would like them to and optimize your ab workout.

In closing, when it comes to weighted, cardio, Or ab focused workouts, proper breathing is essential to truly bring out the best you. While taking shortcuts may seem easier, putting in the effort with these steps will eventually give you exactly what you’re going for with higher weight loss, less muscle strain, and even more muscle tone in the end.

That’s all for today and until next time, think healthy, be healthy!

Tecentriq Could Make A Big Difference

Tecentriq Could Make A Big Difference

While here at the Body Master Fitness Studio, we do focus in on what you can do personally to get a new fit you, it’s also important to know what is going on in the field of health and medical research so you’re aware of the advances available to you. Tecentriq is a brand new cancer inhibitor from Sweden that is currently making quite a bit of buzz as it may be able to not only stop its activity, but may prove to be the cure for bladder cancer.

Tecentriq's Results Could Make A Big Difference

Bladder cancer, is often quite survivable if diagnosed at its early stages with a rather high 96% of patients living full lives for at least five or more years after being diagnosed. However, when diagnosed at a critical stage (stages III – IV), the survival rate drops almost 60% to a very low 39%. The primary areas affected by this type of disease (known as urothelial carcinoma) is of course the bladder itself, the renal pelvis, ureter and urethra. While still not the most common form, the American Cancer Society have estimated over 79 thousand Americans will be diagnosed with bladder society before the end of this year.

As the smart fitness guys and gals we are, we know those estimates are often exaggerated to get motion from the community. What is exciting and interesting however is what Tecentriq does to actually combat this type of cancer. Some snippets taken from their Businesswire report and some case studies relay:

“Roche’s Tecentriq works by mimicking the mechanism of antibodies. It is designed to bind with cancer proteins expressed on tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells. It further blocks cancer interactions, and according to its developers, Tecentriq may also enable the activation of T cells which attacks cancerous cells. Tecentriq was approved last year for another group of patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma as well as non-small cell lung cancer, and the most-common form of lung cancer.”

Pretty neat and, without giving some people too much hope, it sounds like the FDA is very much interested to see what this wonderdrug can do. They are currently speeding up its approval so that it can be available as a possible treatment this year. As we get closer to a cure for cancer as a whole, it’s great to know that we are making leaps and bounds towards that step. However, until a panacea is made to combat those illnesses without our help, our job is to make sure to work out regularly, drink water regularly, and eat right.

Those three steps help prevent illness like no other and it’s something that can take just 30 minutes a day to stave off years of pain down the road. That’s it for health news for today and remember: think healthy, be healthy.
