A story of salt, the outcome, your health & the female picture. The Science of healthy living.
Let us start from the tail of the end. Because we all know that every good tale comes equipped with an end that
makes the rest of the story worth reading.
And as such, the developing story of salt is a story of the roughly 2.5 million deaths around the world which could be prevented each year if
global salt consumption was to be reduced below the recommended levels.
A life of fitness is a game of chess. The Science of healthy living.
When it comes down to health and fitness, and the cerebral battlefield of chess the simple truth is that they are very much alike.
There are no unearthly and illogical surprises waiting in the dark of night that will upend and change the actual fabric of the landscape.
Your opponent can not cast fiery magic and summon demons from the netherworld to do their bidding.
Instead what we have is a beautifully defined field of known and still developing, yet for now, unknown for you and me facts and variables,
and the vast amount of personal choices those known, but evolving facts allows us to make.
And at every step of that personal journey, chess and fitness will leave you standing as the sole commander, at a vast field made up
of pure facts and deductive knowledge and the cause and consequences that every single choice will give birth to.
'The people that bleed' is our own label for a series of videos, all produced by UFC, that I feel show us a
more real and nuanced, intimate perhaps view of the
actual soul and personality of the real human being that makes up the flesh and bone, heart and thoughts behind the bravado and attitude of the
MMA fighter persona.
In this 9 minutes long video, we get to meet Brad Picket (25-14 MMA, 5-9 UFC), a tiny blue collar sized UK based fighter whom retired after his final UFC fight on march 18, 2017 against Brandon Vera.
The Unhealthy Practice of MMA weight cutting The Science of a Healthy Life
For most people getting a bit more fit, and healthy by eating cleaner food and less calories and working out more is a great life improving choice.
And for most, that will lead to health improving reductions in unhealthy body fat levels and body weight. But as we previously talked about in another article, when you are
already in shape, rocking a fit and toned body, eating healthy amounts of healthy food, doing weights and cardio, there comes a limit where dropping
even more in body weight and body fat becomes damaging and unhealthy instead of health and fitness improving.
And beyond that basic reality, you have the insanity of MMA and Boxing weight cuts that far to many pro fighters go through just so they can fight in a weight class that they are
to athletic and big to actually be fighting in.
I am saying that because MMA style weight cutting is not something that anyone interested in health and fitness should ever do.
Neither should pro fighters in my own opinion. In a ideal world you would be the only one doing MMA style weight cuts, allowing you to fight people 20 to 30 lbs smaller than you, with much shorter
leg and arm reach, 20+lbs less muscle mass and all the disadvantage that would give them in strength, endurance, strike impact and absorption.
But you see, when every other fighter do the same weight cut, no one benefits, and everybody suffers from the exact same detrimental and unhealthy exhaustion that MMA style weight cuts are.
With less fitness come fight night and potentially worse health for the long haul as the only real result.
Dairy for the fit and healthy guidelines The Science of a Healthy Life
Time and science continually march forward, and that is a thing of utmost beauty. But that simple fact also requires all of us to keep
an open mind towards the way we do our own
fit and healthy life so that we can continually adapt and improve as we uncover new layers of scientifically established health and fitness
and at times, accept that new health and fitness science-based knowledge might force us to change direction and toss out old established "truths".
So today we find ourselves in a brave new world where a comprehensive Swedish study covering the
health impact of daily dairy and fruit consumption
ended up giving us
so much new scientifically based knowledge about our health and food choices that the time has come to update our "dairy for
the fit and healthy guidelines".
Organic and sugar-free yogurt is still with us, while milk is completely tossed to the side, yes even lactose-free milk gets the boot out my door.
Why you might ask?
Well, the answer is simply put science baby, adapt or die :).
Milk is as far as we understand it right now causing real health issues over time that simply do not
happen when you consume sugar-free yogurt or no dairy at all.
This Swedish study involved close to 200 000 people, and the accumulated data over several years indicates that a high milk consumption
shortens individuals life span through increased
oxidative stress and inflammation caused by that daily milk consumption.
And as such milk has to go since yogurt provides all the same high-quality nutrition as milk and thus, all the benefits of dairy
can be met through organic, sugar-free
yogurt without risking the by now, strongly implicated long-term health issues associated with drinking milk.
The Essence of Creativity, Hides Inside our Minds The Science of a Healthy Life
The Cerebellum inside our individual selfs will dance its very best only to its own bidding.
Hidden away, inside and behind the curtain of what we consider our conscious thoughts, our "little brain" powers on with magnificent poise.
The small, behind the scene part of what we think of as our brain, is despite its small size
(The Cerebellum makes up about 10% of homo sapiens total brain volume) commandeering the majority of our brains neurons.
Air Pollution and our health The factual Science of a Healthy Life, updated with WHO data, march 2017
Science continually spits out more reasons in a never ending string as to why anyone interested in their own health and body should also be caring for a sustainable society and world.
As if it is not already bad enough with modern day life´s annoying sidekick, air pollution, causing cancer, asthma and respiratory diseases and crazy smog in a growing number of cities. We can now add dementia to the list of unpleasant and unhealthy effects that life in any unsustainable society will cause through air pollution.
Swedish researchers at Umeå University have uncovered compelling evidence for a direct link between air pollution and dementia. The run down is that if you happen to live in an area that leaves you exposed to air pollution you will run a 40 percent greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia compared to if you would have chosen to live in a city with healthier air and environment.
Meat vs Plant when Protein gets to battle Protein & age. The Science of a healthy Life
In a recently published study, we got to take a pretty comprehensive look at nearly 3,000 men and women all aged between 19 and 72.
The study participants complete protein intake as well as all the various protein and food sources they consumed was measured.
Including various dairy products, red meat and the healthier fish & chicken and plant-based protein sources.
Beyond that the study also made sure to measure each participants lean muscle mass, their bone density, and individual strength.
When looking at the complete study, it was evident ( and to no surprise ) that the less protein you consumed the lower amount of muscle mass and
strength. But to the surprise of some, the type of protein each person favored did not have any impact on their strength and musculoskeletal health, and there were no differences based on gender or age group.
So keep active, eat healthy and make sure to include enough protein, and yeah, skip that red meat based protein right away because it provides zero health and fitness benefit for anyone.
On continuous gusts of solar wind mixed with terrestrial ions Earth shower the moon with earthborn oxygen The Science of Life
Outside our blue wonders shielded atmosphere, the coldness of space is filled with the burning solar wind. The dust and speckles of stars,
radiation, vacuum and alien stuff like dark matter and gigantic black holes.
It is a marvel of glorious destruction and life that continuously mix and merge outside our calm home, organic chaos tearing down and building new life things across the vastness of time and our Universe.
And amongst it all, somehow, each month, Earth fires up its magnetic shields as we position ourselves between the sun and the moon, and for five whole day´s we Earthlings shower our cute little friend with Earthbound oxygen and organic matter.
In other words, we colonize and shape the very fabric of the alien entity we call the moon with Earthborn biological life and air, organic matter traveling from our blue marble all the way to the moon through the dark void on the winds of the sun.
Environmental Performance Index Scandinavia leads the world The Science of a healthy life
2016 years Environmental Performance Index tells us in one more way, what we already know, and that is that Scandinavia is one hell of a wonderful place to live. The world's four best nations according to the index are all Scandinavians with Finland, Iceland, and Sweden being the only 3 nations in the world with an EPI score above 90. ( All three still have plenty of room to improve much more, and obviously do need to improve much more. ) And just behind that trio, ranked as number four in the world is Denmark. So, just what is the Environmental Performance Index? Read on to find out.
To Dine and Kiss in Space Making love in zero gravity The Science of a healthy life
Making love, off world. And some of the many wondrous and perhaps flat out strange things you can expect to encounter during your future romantic, space date. In our rapidly approaching near future and a few fortunate souls present day reality, the perplexing realities of dating far away from planet Earth will no longer be confined to the silvery screens of yesterday.
Soon a rapidly growing number of people will be able to prepare and plan for romantic weekend dates out and away from Earth´s atmosphere. But beyond the tantalizing, and highly romantic aspect of kissing high up above as you look down back on this blue marble. What else is there to going off the reservate and into the dark unknown?. What about the little everyday things when you kiss, hold hands and make love beneath the stars, way out in space.
Moments before the snow & Sekkusu shinai shokogun The Science of a Healthy Life
Sekkusu shinai shokogun Is a Japanese term for the flight away from human intimacy. But it represents so much more than being a fancy sounding term for the individual flight away from sexual enjoyment and fulfilling love. What that phrase truly represent is not just physical sex, however, it is a loss of something fundamentally human in society at large.
Not surprisingly almost all humans require enjoying life, love, sex, and relationships in a way that is fulfilling towards their own personal needs, emotions, and desires. And when individual life becomes reduced to being nothing more than a slave to be used and abused by endless corporations. The state, a spouse, or simply someone else's selfish and never ending demands. Be it monetary, sexual, emotional or otherwise, that person will grow unhappy with such an unbalanced way of life.
Life fulfillment and enjoyment is simply not measured by the size of your paycheck. Nor can it ever be obtained on an endless one-sided road. A minority might, of course, find that kind of draining one-way trip a wonderful and fulfilling life that truly makes every cell in their being happy, working away 20 hours per day. Giving time, energy, emotions and life itself to an utterly ungrateful and never ending taker that will never give anything that is even remotely close to being enough in return.
