It’s time to give to give out some link loves to health bloggers and to provide you our dear readers of what’s the latest health buzz in the world wide web.
First up, an interesting commentary by Jill Filipovic on the Huffington Post about a condom ad by Trojan, telling us men to evolve! The ad itself though funny really focuses on the lusty, slutty (pardon the term) side of the oldest game in the planet; sex.
Wish they brought back those HIV/AIDS-awareness + condom promotion ads shown in MTV back in 2000, that’s what ads about contraceptives should be, emphasizing the health risks and benefits of using such contraceptives.
If you’ve been the naughty one, you’ve probably read at some time that sex is like – if not – the best over-all exercise for the body. It involves every single muscle group, your cardio-vascular system, it boosts your immune system and perpetuates our species. But like all forms of exercise, one must remember to do some stretching before hand.
Forgetting about sex, stretching and warming up before an exercise or any physically-intense activity will help you carry out that activity much easier, safer and with little worries to your body. Of course, don’t forget to cool down after you’re done.
Exercise of course is the best way to stay fit, healthy and you guessed it, losing some unwanted weight. Weight loss has been a great concern for many of us, from figure-conscious individuals to those who are at risk because they’re carrying too much excess baggage.
Weight-loss diets, pills and no-meat and no-fat diets really suck so it really is hard to go down on the path of weight-loss but don’t frown just yet. If you’re weight-loss program doesn’t allow meat you could still satisfy your hunger and craving with fish. You’d also be glad to know that thanks to fish scientists have found a new way of fighting obesity. They’ve done so by making zebrafish so obese, they’re using its biochemistry to study obesity really up close so that they’ll be able to come up with solutions that prevent obesity right inside our bodies instead of fighting it out with weight-loss programs, pills, drugs, and what nots.
Being fat and obese may become a nightmare for some but eating before going to bed does not only contribute to being overweight but it’s also one of the factors that cause nightmares. And here’s a bigger nightmare for men, impotence. It’s not only a big blow to one’s self-esteem and manhood (literally) but men who have this condition should be on alert as a new study has noticed that impotence indicates risk of heart disease.
Impotence is the result of problems with your blood circulation, and if you’re having circulation problems down there, it means you’re also having circulation problems elsewhere. That elsewhere could be your heart, your brain circulation etc. Stuff that could be more serious than failing to raise your pole.
