A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the Taxes Go Up

Or at least, that’s the recommendation being made Canada by the Heart and Stroke Foundation in a statement back in September. In addition, they want everyone to drop their sugar intake to just 10% of their daily calories – which is roughly about ten teaspoons of sugar. The World Health Organization takes it a step further by calling for a slash in consumption to just 5% of total caloric intake – or just 5 teaspoons. Before any of you start to question how in the world you would do that and still eat healthy – this relates only to the added sugars such as glucose, fructose, corn syrup, and honey – not to any naturally occurring sugar in fruits and vegetables.

All of this is in an attempt to curb obesity in an effort to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other related illnesses due to weight and a high sugar consumption diet.

It’s not a stretch to see why. On average, Canadians consume approximately 26 teaspoons of sugar daily – American’s 28 teaspoons. This translates to somewhere between 88 pounds and 96 pounds of sugar per year consecutively.

5 Ways to Boost Libido Beyond Female Viagra

Not all that long ago, I wrote an article about the female libido and the ways it can be awakened. In it, I discussed not only the Fifty Shades of Grey movie that had just been released, but also the new pill - Sprout’s Flibanserin – which was heading to the FDA in hopes of gaining approval as the first pharmaceutical claiming to make headway for women suffering from Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD). This month, an expert panel for the FDA voted 18-6 to approve the drug, after two previously unsuccessful attempts. It’s important to note final approval is pending until a hearing in August, but generally speaking, the FDA has followed the recommendations of their panel. If approved, the North Carolina drug company plans to market the drug as Addyi.

While in some ways, this is considered a gain for women’s rights activists, Flibanserin isn’t without its pitfalls, and the FDA still knows it. The recommendation for approval from the panel also comes with a pretty big caveat: Sprout must make the negative side effects like dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, and others more noticeable than just a typical warning.

Every year, approximately 1,600 people get sick from Listeria (a form of food poisoning) each year in the United States. Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause Listeriosis, a serious infection usually caused by eating contaminated food. It can be found in soil, water, and some animals; including poultry and cattle. It can be present in raw milk, and foods made from raw milk. Not to mention, it can also live in food processing plants, where it can contaminate a variety of processed meats.

Everyone enjoys being able to spend more time outdoors when summer rolls around, and we are quite sure seniors no different. The interesting thing is, many seniors get to a point where they no longer believe taking preventative measures to safeguard their skin is important. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Did you know, as we age, our skin’s natural ability to protect itself slowly diminishes, leaving it more vulnerable to skin damage and cancer?

UVB and UVA rays are hazardous to your health. UVB rays will cause sunburns as well as tanning your skin, not to mention they are the main culprits responsible for skin cancer. While UVA rays won't cause sunburn; they do penetrate your skin more deeply, leading to signs of aging including wrinkles, saggy, leathery looking skin, and sun spots.
