Water vs. Coke *Updated*

For many Americans Coca Cola has become their favorite drink. While this sugary liquid is okay once and a while, too many Americans have completely forgotten about drinking water. While water does not necessarily have that caffeine pick-me-up that coke does, it gives your body a more healthy energy boost. Not to mention water is a lot healthier for your body anyway.
Just to put things in to perspective here are a few statistics you may want to pay very close attention to.

• 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated and many have such a weak thirst mechanism that it is often mistaken for hunger.

• Mild dehydration can slow the metabolism up to 3%, but one glass of water can eliminate the desire for a midnight snack.

• Lack of water is the number one cause of daytime fatigue.

• A drop of only 2% in body water can cause troubles with short term memory, problems with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen.

[Updated From Source]

•Every 240mL of water you drink can decrease your risk of developing bladder cancer by 7%

•Men that drink only 1 or no glasses of water a day are 4 times more likely to develop colorectal cancer than those that drink 4 or more glasses of water every day.

•Women who are not receiving adequate amounts of water daily are almost 5 times (4.7) more likely to develop breast cancer than those who receive proper amounts.

COKE

• Coke can be used to clean many things, for example: Toilet bowls, sinks, corrosion from car battery terminals, rust on car bumpers, and grease from clothes.

• Coke can help loosen a rusted bolt.

• The active ingredient in Coke is Phosphoric acid which can contribute to calcium loss in bones and contributes to osteoporosis.

• Trucks that transport Coca-Cola syrup must place a “highly corrosive materials” sign on the truck.

So next time you go to grab a drink, think about what you’re putting into your body.

Tips for a good night’s sleep

Filed under: calcium,magnesium,Multivitamin,sleep,sleep deprivation,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 4:29 pm
The brain is okay at functioning on only a few hours of sleep, but it will not live up to its potential. Having a lack of sleep can actually cause your mental, physical, and even emotional health to pay. You will have a harder time doing simple tasks when you are sleep deprived, and may start to get moody with those around you. In order to keep yourself healthy and maintain your relationships, make sure you are getting enough sleep!

Here are some tips to help you get a better night’s sleep:

Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule – go to bed and wake up at around the same times every day.

Exercise regularly – Regular exercise will help you use up more energy and reduce your stress levels helping you sleep better.

Wind down before bed – Try to do something relaxing before going to bed like reading a book or having a bath. This will tell your body that you are ready to sleep and ease you of stress that could keep you up at night. Avoid sitting on the computer before going to bed – it may hinder your ability to fall asleep peacefully.

Stay Healthy – A healthy diet will help you sleep well. Make sure you have plenty of calcium and magnesium in your diet. Try taking multivitamins regularly to improve your overall health.
