The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Phytosterols can reduce cholesterol. It is good to see that more products are being enriched with phytosterols. I take them. I think they are good for my health.

Eating red meat may increase a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer.

Do B vitamins help prevent osteoporosis? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

How much exercise is enough? I try to do an hour a day. That is not always possible. But if you’re trying to lose weight, I think exercise can help if you also change your diet.

I like Dr. Dean Ornish. I think he has a lot of good advice for people trying to lead a healthy life. So it is interesting to me when I read what he has to say about good carbs vs. bad carbs.

Here’s an article that says that participating in a yoga program can help those who have cancer. I know that Dr. Ornish recommends meditation to reduce stress and deal with heart health. Now it seems something similar may have a place in cancer treatment. I’m sure that people who are ill could use all the help they can get.

Research suggests that DHA, a fatty acid found in fish and in fish oil may reduce a person’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. People with high levels of DHA in their blood seemed less likely to develop Alzheimer’s. But I wonder if the results were due to eating a lot of fish, or if it was due to not eating things like red meat.

Are you trying to lose weight? Here is a discussion of weight loss supplements such as bitter orange, guarana, and hoodia.
