According to statistics, about 50 % of American citizens use some type of artificial vision at one point of their life. These can either be in the form of eyeglasses or contact lenses. These artificial methods are not permanent for eye improvement.

They are only meant to help your eye for some time and offer relief. So let nobody trick you that the eye glasses and contact lenses will never and can never restore your vision or repair any defects as a result of eye-related complications. They are only made to treat the symptoms that have deteriorated your vision and not to treat any eye problems.

The problem with the use of corrective lenses is overdependency. They make your eyes unable to function properly on their own without a corrective lens. This will make the eyes somehow weaker and unable to repair themselves. To prevent this, make sure you train your eyes to become relaxed by reducing any eye strain. This will reduce your dependency on the corrective lenses.

Why and how Quantum Vision works

Multiple studies have shown that mental stress and eye strain are the main causes of vision damage. To prevent or reverse these two conditions, you need to avoid putting too much strain on your eyes. Training your eyes to avoid straining may be hard at first but becomes easier as you proceed. This is why you need to devise ways of reducing your eyestrain levels.

There are many things that affect your vision. These factors determine how well your vision is. These factors may include the weather, your mental capacity, stress and other outside influences. All these factors will determine the quality of our vision under different conditions.

These factors cause your eyes to undergo changes from time to time. This is what makes your eye very different from the other parts of your body. This is what makes it difficult to look for an appropriate prescription for any eye problems, especially corrective lenses.

Basic Information About Hair Loss

200285526-002

200285526-002Do you believe that you are the only person in the world who has ever lost their hair? You are most certainly not! Androgenic alopecia, which is the most common type of hair loss, affects more than 50% of all men. It is also a problem for 20-40% of the entire female population. You are far from alone. In fact, you are in the majority.

Androgenic alopecia is caused when hair follicles (where hair grows from) start to decrease in size and the hair growth phase is significantly reduced. This means one simple thing: More of the hair follicles will come to a state of rest before being shed. The good thing is that this condition does not affect all of the hair follicles at once. This is the reason that some places on the scalp seem to have more hair than others.

What Is The Cause For Androgenic Alopecia? As boys age, their hair follicles come in contact with androgen, which is a hormone that controls the physical appearance and development of masculine features. Once this happens, they become sensitive to the androgen and lay a path for androgenic alopecia to become a problem later in life. Prevent hair follicles from coming in contact with androgens will stop this condition from every becoming a problem. Grow new hair with the rebuild hair program.

To offer a few more details about how this works, there are two types of androgen; testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). An enzyme that is known as 5-alpha-reducer is what turns testosterone into DHT. Once this is formed, it can become bound to any androgen receptors that are in the hair follicles. This will decrease the activity of the follicle, the hair growth cycle will stop, the hair shaft will decrease in diameter and as time moves on, hair will stop growing altogether.

Females experience things very similar to the way that males do. Androgen in women stems from the combined activity of the adrenal glands and ovaries. Hair loss in females is sometimes related to other factors, including pregnancy and menopause.

Levels of Vitamin B-12 Tied To Bone Fractures in Older Men

o-MEN-VITAMINS-facebook

o-MEN-VITAMINS-facebookOlder men who have minimal amounts of Vitamin B-12 face increased risk to have bone fractures as suggested by a study. Researchers have measured the levels of Vitamin B-12 in a sample of 1000 men in Sweden with ages averaging at 75. They found out that the participants that had low levels of the vitamin were more likely to suffer a fracture as compared to those with normal levels of the vitamin.

The men in the group with the lowest B-12 levels were 70 percent more likely to suffer a fracture than all the others in the study. This decrease was mainly because of fractures on the spine where there existed an up to a 120 percent increase in chance of fractures.
The higher risks still remains when you take other risk factors leading to fractures into consideration. These risks include age, bone mineral density, physical activity, previous fractures, smoking and even the content of Vitamin D in the blood together with your intake of calcium.
It, however, is unknown whether consuming more vitamin B-12 which can be found in fish, eggs and poultry may be used to decrease chance of fractures in old men. If you are willing to make stronger your bones and prevent future fractures, you can opt to engage in physical activity about half an hour each day and quitting any habits that may adversely affect your health.
Even though the study has tied little vitamin B-12 amounts in a body to a greater risk of older men getting fractured bones, it has not established a cause and effect relationship. This study has been published online in the journal Osteoporosis International. It is a vital part of an international research project that was initiated by the National Institute of Health in U.S. that includes over eleven thousand men.

How To Maintain Proper Personal Hygiene

Woman Resting in BathThere can be no doubt about it: sound personal hygiene practices are vital to staying healthy. Observing good hygiene on a daily basis, including hand washing and daily brushing and flossing can ensure that you do not fall victim to viruses, bacteria and other causes of serious illness. In addition, taking care to follow proper hygiene practices is a great way to keep your overall mental and physical health going strong. Experts agree that heeding hygiene advice on a consistent basis works wonders for your self esteem, which in turn benefits your emotional wellness. Those who fail to do so tend to be characterized by their unpleasant body odor, foul breath, messy hair and bad teeth, all things which attract the negative judgment of others.

Good Grooming As Part Of Your Personal Hygiene Routine

To boost your health and keep the risk of illness and infection low, keep the following tips in mind:

Take baths often. Make certain to clean your hair and body frequently, largely because you are constantly shedding skin cells, and they need to be washed away with regularity to prevent buildup known for harboring infections.

Keep your nails trimmed. By maintaining your fingernails and toenails, you will stand a much stronger chance of avoiding infections of the nail bed, painful hangnails and athlete’s foot.

Make brushing and flossing a priority. While it is often recommended that you brush following each of your daily meals, you should at the very least try to brush and floss twice every day. The process of brushing works to reduce bacteria accumulations in the mouth which could produce gum disease and tooth decay. Flossing is also critical to gum health and also helps prevent bacterial buildup that can damage the heart if allowed to proliferate unchecked. Gum disease also causes a loosening of the teeth, making eating harder and harder. Regular dental visits complete with cleanings and exams should round out your oral hygiene routine.

Hand washing is essential. Always make certain to wash your hands prior to eating or handling food, following bathroom visits, after you sneeze or cough and whenever you touch garbage. Doing so helps prevent hazardous viruses and bacteria from spreading. Consider having alcohol-based hand sanitizer in close proximity for situations in which soap and water cannot be accessed.

Never fail to get enough sleep. Making sure to sleep for 8-10 hours every night is an optimal way to feel constantly energized and refreshed. Sleep deprivation is notorious for producing feelings of sluggishness and susceptibility to illness. Getting sufficient rest helps your immune system do its job efficiently and effectively.

What Poor Personal Hygiene Can Say About You

If you have a friend, acquaintance or family member who seems to be neglecting basic personal hygiene, it may be that they are facing deeper issues including depression. It may be helpful to take such a person aside and initiate a discussion about hygiene habits and perhaps even offer them some basic hygiene products. Try to strike the delicate balance between sounding the alarm about the warning signs you are seeing and exhibiting sensitivity for their troubles. Ultimately, it may be that the particular individual at issue really needs professional assistance with their issues, and you can play an important role by encouraging them to seek it.

Remind Others How Hygiene Can Keep Them In Top Condition

The majority of individuals are so accustomed to following sound personal hygiene routines that they hardly give any thought to the daily process of bathing, tooth brushing and routine scheduling of appointments with medical and dental professionals. However, there are always a few individuals for whom strong personal hygiene habits do not necessarily come naturally and who can always use a friendly reminder about the tremendous benefits of establishing and maintaining proper hygiene practices.

Why Too Much Sitting Is Killing You

Sitting-Position2

Sitting-Position2The news is out and it is shocking. Those of us who sit too much each day are killing ourselves. Even people who exercise regularly are at a high risk of a short life span, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer if they spend much of the day sitting.

Dr. David Alter, senior scientist at the University Health Network in Toronto, Canada says that more than half the day in an average person’s life is spent in a sedentary fashion. People watch television or spend an entire work day in front of a computer, all while sitting down. Unfortunately, even the act of exercising and getting plenty of daily activity does not alone reduce the risks for disease.

During a thorough research, it was found that people who sit for prolonged periods of time are 24 percent more at risk of dying from health issues and diseases than people who sit less. The research was conducted for a period of one to 16 years among participants in 47 studies.

The studies did not use a cutoff for defining how much sedentary activity was too much. It was determined, according to a University of Toronto research leader who is a doctoral candidate, that sitting more than eight hours per day is enough to generate health risks.

Those health risks were found by the research conducted that too much sitting increased cardiovascular disease by about 18 percent. Cancers, including breast, ovarian, endometrial and colon, were found to increase by about 17 percent among chronic sitters. A staggering 91 percent increase for Type 2 Diabetes was found to be a real risk for those who spend too much time sitting. The good news is that people who sat, but who also participated in regular exercise were at a slightly lower risk for developing heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

The researchers found, however, that those who exercised did not eliminate the risks for these health problems entirely. Yet, exercise did work to lower the risks. People who exercise and also sit for up to eight hours a day are about one-third as at risk for developing health problems as those who did not exercise. These results were found in 10 of the 47 studies, and apply only to those people who reported that they did or did not exercise.

There has been more research conducted concerning the increase in health problems among those who sit too much. The largest, most rigorous study actually included over 830,000 people who died from health issues. Of those people 550,000 developed and succumbed to heart disease and 745,000 developed cancers.

There are ways to combat the health problems of sitting. Increase activity levels during the day. Take breaks from the computer, or even use a treadmill desk. If this is not feasible, move around when eating a snack or take a walk to the train or bus instead of driving in a car.

New Research Supports Younger Women Receive Mammograms

Woman and doctor

Woman and doctorAccording to new research, many women who are diagnosed in their 40s with breast cancer, unfortunately lack knowledge as to what many well-known risk factors are for this disease. This can potentially add power to the debate as to whether or not preventative screening is necessary for this age group.

This surprising study discovered that few of the 136 women who were diagnosed with breast cancer after mammogram had a family history of the disease or dense breast tissue. Dense breast tissue or a family history is often one of the determining factors as to whether a woman between the ages of 40 and 49 is screened for cancer with a mammography.

Dr. Elissa Price stated that ìstrong family history was only present in 12% of the young women.î Dr. Price is the University of Californiaís Director of Clinical Breast Imaging Operations in San Francisco.

Dr. Price continued to state that ìonly 14% of those diagnosed had extremely dense breasts.î

If screening were limited to women who had risk factors, screening-detected cancers would be reduced by more than 75%, she stated.

Dr. Priceís findings were scheduled to be presented Tuesday to the Radiological Society of North America during their annual meeting held in Chicago. Typically, studies which are presented during medical meetings are viewed as preliminary until they become published in a peer reviewed journal of medicine.

Unfortunately, many women in their 40s receive conflicting advice regarding mammograms from varying organizations. The US Preventive Services Task Force released recommendations in 2009 that younger women in their 40s have conversations with with their doctors regarding the pros and cons of routinely scheduled mammograms. These recommendations take into account the situations of individual women, known risk factors, and their own personal values.

The beliefs of the task force were that the potential harm of screening, including false positives, far outweigh the benefits gained in younger women. This recommendation is currently under review and in the process of being updated.

The American Cancer Society, as well as many other organizations, are strongly recommending annual mammography screening for women who are at least at average risk, starting at age 40.

The American College of Radiology stated that the findings of this new research ìwould appear to echo previous evidence.î This previous evidence concluded that risk based screening would miss the vast majority of cancers.

Dr. Carol Lee, who is a spokeswoman for the American College of Radiology said that roughly 75% of women who are diagnosed with breast have no prior risk factors including family history.

A very strong family history basically means that someone has a direct relative (mother, daughter, or sister) who was diagnosed with breast cancer, prior to being age 50, Price stated.

If breasts are considered to be extremely dense or dense, then those risk factors will make detection by mammography much more difficult to detect.
This new study reviewed 136 different breast cancer patients who were diagnosed between 1997 and 2012 as the direct result of a mammography. The researchers stated that half of these cancers were invasive while the other half were noninvasive and early stage.

The cancersí hormone profiles were also evaluated in order to determine whether or not the cancers needed estrogen to grow. These hormone requiring cancers are known as ER-positive cancers.

This research goes to further support routine screening of younger women as more than 90% of them were known to have excellent survival rates, Price stated.
