Isabel Eats Better, Shapes Up...

After you lose weight you feel like you can take on the world! It’s a powerful feeling. Singer Alanis Morissette dropped the pounds and now she’s sexier than ever. Our friend Jacob switched to a healthy diet and today he’s ripped. Now check out Isabel, she fixed her diet and looks great:

I hated myself, and now I'm liking myself more and more. In December of 2002, I was tired, unhappy and mad at myself for continuously failing at losing weight and keeping it off. I was 31 and had weight issues for as long as I can remember.

When I was 17, I lost about 40 lbs and wore a bikini for the first time in my life. I was so happy. Needless to say, marriage, having children and running to food when the stresses of life caught up with me or celebrating with food when I was happy, resulted in me weighing a little over 200 lbs. I'm only 5ft tall, and I weighed almost the same as my husband and more than my father!! Each time I tried to lose weight, I'd reach half way and ruin everything...continue reading.

Vitamins and Selenium Don't Prevent Prostate Cancer

Cancer is a disease. And according to Dr. Fuhrman, eating lots of high-nutrient foods protect against prostate cancer, namely fruits and vegetables, like watermelon, tomatoes, pomegranates, green vegetables, berries and figs. And avoiding harmful foods, like meat and dairy, help reduce men’s risk of prostate cancer. A healthy diet is key! Not just taking supplements and eating crappy food.

That’s why a new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association reveals vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium don’t prevent prostate cancer. Researchers found that 35,533 cancer-free men, in their 50’s, who took selenium and vitamin supplements, several years later had the same risk of developing prostate cancer as men who received the placebo, Health Magazine investigates.

And similar research has shown simply taking vitamins C and E don’t ward off heart disease either.

25% of People Say No to Flu Shot

A survey of 4,000 adults revealed 53% of people would not get a flu shot this year and 25% of that said they did not need one. Unlike the CDC that recommends 85% of the population get vaccinated against the flu. Someone needs to use up the 146 million doses just sitting around; via Reuters.

The flu shot thing is mired in propaganda. According to Dr. Fuhrman, most people eating a nutrient-dense diet and practicing good hygiene can easily ward off flu cells. No need to set off a panic!
