Happiness = Bad For Your Health?

I have to admit, the subject line is a little misleading, and yet there is still tons of truth in it depending on your path to happiness.

Anywho, I stumbled across a study done on how lifestyle can affect your epigenetic expression.  In case you aren’t familiar with gene expression, I have an entire ebook on the topic of anti-aging through altering your epigenetic expression from the perspective of nutrition.

Epigenetics is the way in which your genes can be “turned on” or “turned off.”  Meaning, your genes aren’t always doing what they’re designed to do, and your nutrition can directly cause positive gene expression or even negative gene expression.

However, there are other circumstances which can cause adverse or positive gene expression. In fact, they play just as large of a role in your health as nutrition does.

So let’s explore.

DON’T do these 3 things for Osteoporosis (ps, it’s opposite day!)

Hate Mail.

So I knew I would be getting a couple emails from last week’s news letter.

I realize by saying calcium is “bad”, that I was likely to get some hate mail

(Jk, you ❤️ me. I didn’t get any hate mail)

because most believe that calcium helps prevent  Osteoporosis, right?

That’s a false presumption.

Osteoporosis doesn’t occur because of a lack of calcium.

In fact, the chances are your body already has plenty from your diet.

Healthy diets have plenty of calcium and most processed foods in the westernized world are fortified with more calcium than we need.

In most cases of osteoporosis, your bones just aren’t absorbing calcium properly.

So adding even more calcium to the mix doesn’t necessarily help.

Heart Disease: 1 thing to avoid and 1 thing to do for your ❤️

Hey there.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Have I got some things for you today.

Today’s issue of Nutrition Weekly is great for both your literal and figurative heart.

Today I’m gonna share one mistake that many make and don’t even
realize it.

It’s so sneaky that other “culprits” get the blame.

Pharmaceutical companies actually benefit from doctors selling the wrong
kinds of solutions.

It’s almost a taboo to even talk about..

..you know, like when we question status quo, Doctors, and question mainstream opinion.

What am I talking about you ask?

1) Perceived causes, like cholesterol and fatty foods,

VS

2) the actual causes of heart disease.
(we’ll discuss one of them today)

Knowing what I’m about to share, just might help turn it all around for  you or someone you know.

Knowing 1 + 2 (from above) = healthier ❤️’s

Scientists: “Vegetarians are Sexier” (vegan chili recipe inside)

I recently came across an article in Psychology Today discussing the attractiveness of vegetarians vs their more carnivorous counterparts.

These scientific results support my own personal, and slightly biased results, however, 12 Scientists and 10 Universities can’t be wrong. 😋

Ready? Let’s get to it.

So… the studies split individuals who volunteered for the study into two groups, (a) vegetarian and (b) non-vegetarian.
