Nutrition Turned Upside Down and Backwards: Pizza is the New Vegetable
In the fashion world, you often hear “pink is the new black” or “(insert color here) is the new black.” It’s because black is the basis of fashion – the standard, if you will. You can always count on black to be fashionable. It’s just right – in any situation.Well, according to Congress, who has betrayed American children’s health once again, “pizza is the new vegetable.” Yes, you read that right. Pizza, for the purposes of school lunch programs, is now considered a vegetable … thanks to its meager swipe of tomato paste.see this story here - http://ihtv.me/QfQKUkjoin us free here - http://ihtv.me/KWxbcm(Image courtesy of sxc)

One of the Best Cancer Preventions is Free: Walking
Walking every day may have profound health benefits.As winter sets in, most of us are probably not as active as we usually are during warmer months. Winter is a time of stillness, reflection and rest. However, we still need to exercise, even if it’s at a slower pace. Walking offers us a chance to move our bodies, keeping our systems running smoothly without the over exertion of other high powered activities such as jogging or competitive sports. And this calmer rhythm found in walking, especially walking in nature, is a true blessing in supporting the overall health of our bodies, minds and spirits.see this story here - http://ihtv.me/PikbDnjoin us free here - http://ihtv.me/KWxbcm(Image courtesy of Foter)

Slow the Aging Process and Relieve Pain: How to Recharge Your Body with Sex
Sex and Anti-AgingNow let’s look at how sex slows the aging process and helps you look younger longer. First of all, sex is the ideal aerobic exercise. While it may not completely replace regular trips to the gym, it will help burn calories and tone the body. Consider this: 30 minutes of sex burns about 150 calories, which is more calories burned than if you were to spend the same amount of time on a stair climber or in Yoga class. An even more significant translation: if you have sex for 30 minutes three times a week for one year, you are going to burn more calories than if you had run 75 miles!see this story - http://ihtv.me/ROjPT5join us free here - http://ihtv.me/KWxbcm(Image courtesy of sxc)

Military Working Dogs: More Than a Man’s Best Friend
One thing we know all too well these days is that post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is all around us. As we honor and remember our fallen military personnel this Memorial Day, one can’t help but think about the state of a service man or service woman’s state of mind in this age of war and loss.Dog trainers and handlers alike can grow attached to their canine counterparts, much like you or I grow to love our own pets. They are truly appreciated for their hard work and dedication, and losing a dog partner can be much like losing a human partner. Not only that, but the dogs can also become very attached to their handlers, and extremely affected by injury or loss – to the point of developing a form of PTSD themselves.see this story here - http://ihtv.me/QjoLRpjoin us free here - http://ihtv.me/KWxbcm(Image courtesy of sxc)
