- Replace conventional and old light bulbs: With this simple task we’re freeing our planet of 68 kilograms of CO2 per year. The option of saving bulbs or bulbs of low flow cares for the environment (and also cares for our pockets).

The director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Ronald Herberman, sent a memo to 3000 staff warning of possible higher risks from mobile phone use. The warning, though, is based on early findings from unpublished data, and according to Dr. Herberman, “we shouldn’t wait for a definitive study to come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later”. Further, he says that children should be especially protected as their brains are still developing. Moreover, we have to remember that UK Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme said there was some hint of a higher … (Continue Reading)
Recently, a friend of mine sent me a book: “The 7 Pillars of Health” by Dr. Don Colbert (Thank you Jesus!). Because of my little vacation, I had found no time to read the book. He enjoyed the book a lot, and wanted to share his joy with me. Well, I have to say that the book by Dr. Colbert is pretty interesting. Further, I also have to say that it’s the first book authored by Dr. Colbert that I’ve read. And it’s an easy reading. The book presents a “biblical cure”, based on our approach to … (Continue Reading)
After publishing my friend’s message and commenting on her intentions to take a vacations trip, I somehow wished to take a little vacation too. As I have no ties to prevent it, I adhered to my wish. I took a few days trip to eastern Venezuela, totally disconnected from the Internet and the current rush of technology. Over there, I met up with a longtime friend and her family… It had been ages since I saw them last, so it was good to finally catch up, and we all had a good time and a lot of stories to … (Continue Reading)
It is very difficult, although not impossible, to win a race if we have to start down in a hole. However, this is the precise handicap which a lot of people face during their search for happiness. Because of such handicap, climbing out of the hole and arriving to at least the starting line represents an exhausting endeavor. Apparently, this is not logical… this is not how life should be. But truth be told, we can only start from the position we are right now, and we can only use the resources available to us right now. In … (Continue Reading)
The prostate is a gland of the male mammalian reproductive system, whose main function is to produce a portion of the seminal fluid that constitutes semen. The prostate also contains some muscles that help expel semen during ejaculation. Additionally, the prostate also secrets a bit of proteic contents, including prostate-specific antigen (PSA), magnesium, enzymes, zinc, etc. Normally, PSA is present in the blood at very low levels, but can be elevated in the presence of prostate cancer or other prostate disorders.
Some studies have suggested a link between a high-fat diet (which frequently include few servings of vegetables) and prostate’s … (Continue Reading)
Memory is the ability to store, retain, and subsequently retrieve information. Clearly, this definition comprises 3 functions. First, input to the system is considered (storing), which involves perception and transduction of the perceived images into the “right format” for saving the perceived information in the brain. Second, the inputted information must be preserved for a specific time (retaining.) And finally, the stored information has to be recovered from the brain, following our commandment (retrieving.) In this post we’ll review the nature of memory and a few options to improve it. A healthy memory amounts to a bigger vision … (Continue Reading)
Current stressed lifestyles and rushed, unhealthy diets are important promoters of high cholesterol levels in the body. We should always remember that the first step toward recovering our health and treating any medical problem should be an evaluation by a qualified specialist (I do recommend consulting a good cardiologist for treatment of cholesterol problems.)
This week I had my annual cardiological checkup. These tips expand on the recommendations of my cardiologist, and they could prove useful for keeping low cholesterol levels and, in general, a healthy lifestyle. Basically, we should start out by adopting better nutritional habits, including the … (Continue Reading)

Looking for new ways of thinking is an excellent exercise for being smarter and more sociable. Nevertheless, in the following I detail a neat list of simple exercises for improving our minds’ state:

The initial answer against fear and panic would be stress. Typically, this reaction causes anxiety, wake up panic and lost of self-confidence. Fear and panic have their roots in circumstances and settings which we feel are no longer under our control. When we are dealing with a lot of variables simultaneously, the mind tends to flood with negative thoughts regarding our fears about not being able to handle the situation willingly. All humans have instincts, and we all share most of them in different stages. Stress, therefore, is a state of the body and mind reacting to a perceived danger. … (Continue Reading)
