Ask yourself what people see when they look at your company.  This is an important question to ask yourself because people often have a large number of choices available to them when looking for products, services, or a business opportunity.  When they look at your company do they see anything that tilts the scale in your favor?

What criteria ultimately influence your customers in making their final choice?

Sweating Makes Her Feel Sexy Says Kim Kardashian

Socialite in vibrant healthSocialite Kim Kardashian says sweating makes her feel sexy.

I don’t know about you, but sweating usually makes me feel irritable and exhausted.  Sweating keeps my clothes washer going busy because I don’t like wearing wet odorous clothes.  Sweat doesn’t do to much for the look of my dress clothes either. 

However, the experts say that sweating is actually beneficial.  Those 2.6 million sweat glands in the average person’s skin actually help us stay healthy.

Sweat helps regulate body temperature.  Sweating is the way our body responds to an increase in core temperature and it’s essential if our body is to cool down.  We stop sweating when our body’s core temperature drops down to normal.  If we didn’t sweat we would be in danger of heat stroke.

In addition to cooling us off, sweating has other health benefits.

Sweating can increase our metabolic rate, When our metabolism increases, our body’s ability to eliminate harmful toxins increases.  Our bodies are filled with toxins that we pick up every day from our environment; from the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.  These toxins can cause significant health problems.  Although our body can eliminate some of these toxins by other methods, up to 30% of them can be effectively eliminated by sweat.  Sweat is one of the best toxic flushes available!

So it’s probable that individuals who periodically use saunas and steam rooms are getting important health benefits from doing so.  Continue reading Sweating Makes Her Feel Sexy Says Kim Kardashian

Household Cleaners Linked To Breast Cancer In Women

Household cleaners linked to breast cancer in womenA study recently published in the magazine “Environmental Health” found a greater incidence of breast cancer among women who frequently used household cleaners.  Julia Brody, PhD, executive director of the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Mass., who led the study, and her fellow researchers conducted telephone interviews with 787 women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer and 721 women who did not have breast cancer.  The women were asked about the frequency of their use of household cleaners.

The links between breast cancer and household cleaners was found to be the greatest among women who used combined cleaning products (many different products used together).  The risk of breast cancer was about twice as high for the women who used many different products compared to women who said they used the least.
