Cholesterol: Friend or Foe?

With all the publicity about the detrimental health effects of cholesterol, people are often surprised to learn that cholesterol is actually important for keeping the body functioning normally. Some may be under the impression that all of the cholesterol in our system comes from the food we eat. In fact, our body is also capable of knowing when to produce the right type of cholesterol to keep the body in a balanced state. So cholesterol isn’t all bad, nor is it all good when there’s too much of the wrong type. Fiber is a key tool to lower cholesterol and is only found in plant-based foods. A vegan diet rich in fiber is beneficial and effective in helping us to keep cholesterol in the normal range.

Towel Exercise: Portable Gym for Fitness

Towel Exercise: Portable Gym for Fitness

A towel can be used for isometric exercises. “ISO” literally means “equal” while “metric” is a measurement. Such routines involve keeping a static position with a contraction of a muscle or muscle group, but the muscles remain at a fixed length. Simply put, the amount of force you use to pull a towel may change, but the angle of your joints does not vary. Isometric exercises are beneficial because they are more gentle on the joints in comparison to weight-bearing exercises, like weightlifting. They are often incorporated into rehabilitation exercise routines, which can help people recovering from procedures like hip surgery, to improve strength without adding too much stress on the affected joint.

B12, the Vitamin that All Vegans Need to Know

There is no harm in exceeding the recommended amounts or using more than one option. What happens if you do not get enough vitamin B12? A mild deficiency may cause no symptoms at first. If untreated, the typical deficiency symptoms in adults include loss of energy, tingling, numbness, reduced sensitivity to pain or pressure, blurred vision, abnormal gait, sore tongue, and mental problems like depression, memory loss, and personality changes. Signs of a B12 deficiency may take months or years to emerge, and they are usually reversible on the administration of B12. If you suspect you have a deficiency, you should get a diagnosis from a medical practitioner, because each of the named symptoms can also be caused by problems other than a B12 deficiency.

Dr. Shireen Kassam: The Nutritionally Complete Whole Foods Vegan Diet, Part 1 of 2

People who are vegans consume only plant-based foods, and avoid eating anything from an animal, including dairy, honey, eggs, and gelatin. You may wonder why a growing number of individuals are choosing this benevolent and healthful diet. Some people become vegan after they learn about factory farms, like dairy operations where cows are harshly exploited to get the maximum output of milk. Finding this unbearably cruel, they look for alternatives. Others choose a plant-based diet for health reasons. Multiple studies have demonstrated consuming meat increases the risk of major health problems over time.

Pharmacist Huang Shu-Fu on Taking Medicine Wisely, Part 1 of 2

Since there are times when we cannot avoid taking drugs to heal, is there anything we can do to help us consume medicines wisely and lower the risk of damaging our health? Medical doctors advocate for consulting a medical professional and strictly following their instructions for a medication’s use. Why is this so important? Before deciding how to administer a drug, a physician considers the drug’s characteristics, the dosage, the route of delivery, how the drug moves through the body, and the possible side effects. The route of delivery depends on three main factors: the part of the body being treated, the way the pharmaceutical works within the body, and the formula of the remedy.
