Despite health officials being worried about the “increase in meat intake in Asian countries,” a recent study actually found an inverse association between mortality and red meat, fish, and poultry intake.
Forget melatonin supplements, blue blocking goggles, and f.lux - going camping is the best way to normalize your circadian rhythm.
Even though tests of individual chemicals may proclaim them as “safe,” combining “safe” doses of two potential carcinogens – estrogen and arsenic – doubles the cancer risk to prostate cells. This study seems relevant in a world where “we are getting exposed to many chemicals at once,” doesn’t it?
Two weeks ago, I introduced you to five cosmetics ingredients you should avoid. These are chemicals you’ll often find in things like shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, sunblocks, and makeups – you know, the stuff you’re covering yourself in everyday. Cosmetics manufacturers use these ingredients to improve their product’s ability to clean, moisturize, beautify, or improve an odor, but they often do lots of other bad stuff in the process. So the question is, do these products need these chemicals to work like we want them to, or are there alternative products that manage to use more natural and/or less harmful ingredients while still getting the job done? Indeed, there are, and today I’m going to share my findings with you.
One of the most common questions I get from readers is the same one I get from people who have no idea who I am or what I do: “What’s your workout, dude?” Because I write a blog that discusses the latest fitness research, some of you might get the impression that I’m constantly switching up my routine to incorporate the latest and greatest. Many times, you assume that because I wrote approvingly about something, I must be doing that thing. Well, by and large, I am not doing that. Even if some particular lift is proven to build the most strength most efficiently, I mostly stick to my tried and true. I’m no longer an elite athlete. I don’t need the latest and greatest. If it works for me and my goals, I stick with it. Of course, it helps that the way I train was already fairly consistent with the latest research, and is easily fueled by my Primal Blueprint eating strategy.
Here’s one of the latest inquiries into my training:

If you’ve got the new inbox, my emails will now show up in a tab called “Promotions.” To keep receiving my messages in your regular, or “Primary” inbox, simply drag one of my messages from your Promotions tab to the Primary tab, then click “Yes” when they ask you the question.
In a recent small trial in patients with major depressive disorder, curcumin, a constituent of turmeric root, was just as effective as Prozac at improving the depression rating scale.
Like it or not, we’re in this whole life thing together. Whether you admit this or deny it, the people who surround you influence you. Rugged individualists, angtsy teens shopping at Hot Topic and blasting Linkin Park out of headphones permanently affixed to their ears, and everyone else may think they’re blazing a completely unique path and forging their own destiny without external input, but everyone is a product of their environment. Our identities aren’t even created in a vacuum; they are formed based on what the people around us are doing and how they’re living. We are reactions to the actions, circumstances, and personalities of other people, particularly those to whom we’re most frequently exposed.
