In winter our household windows and doors remain mostly closed and one must consider how much of our lives we actually spend indoors. The combination of airtight homes and toxic cleaning products become a health risk. Commercial air purifiers can be toxic because they emit ozone gases or ultraviolet rays. Instead, we can maintain healthy, breathable air in our homes in more natural ways. What can we do to safely and naturally purify our air?
The best natural air cleaners are to use environmentally friendly cleaning products. Most indoor pollution is caused by chemical cleaning agents we apply to surfaces in our homes. Substitute these cleaners for those in which contain the most common harmful airborne chemicals: formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, and carbon monoxide. Even in low concentrations these chemicals can cause a variety of health problems that have
Youre never too young to start paying attention:
Prostate problems are incredibly common. To make these problems even worse, men are often unaware of their bodies, and few understand the risk factors or the signs associated with an enlarged prostate. Additionally, men are frequently reluctant to undergo prostate exams to screen for this problem. This is a serious issue, especially regarding prostate cancer, as studies show that men often present with advanced stages of the condition. Diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer remains a major health problem and is more difficult to treat than problems that are identified early.
Given that about one in eight Canadian men is expected to develop prostate cancer during his lifetime and that the majority
Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Folic acid regulate levels of homocysteine, an amino acid associated with Alzheimers disease. According to a 2009 study conducted by the Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Aging, the above B vitamins slow the rate of brain shrinkage, a common impairment among individuals with Alzheimers. Individuals with the slowest rate of brain shrinkage scored significantly better on cognitive tests
It is always wise to invest in a good Vitamin B Complex either in a liquid form or in tablets or caplets, in order to ensure a balanced s
Vitamin B12 is well known for its many health benefits but scientists at the University of Manchester have found this nutrient is additionally of great value lowering the toxicity of many noxious pollutants that humans are regularly exposed to. After many years a research team at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology have pinpointed how Vitamin B12 is valuable in neutralizing some of the worst toxins.
Led by Professor David Leys, researchers realized that certain organisms manage to lower the toxicity of pollutants. The secret lies in their ability to use Vitamin B12 to deal with the tricky halogen atoms found in common pollutants.
We already know that some of the most toxic pollutants contain halogen atoms and that most
