The Benefits of Water

Drink up to 8 glasses of water a day, a commonly known and even more commonly ignored aspect of healthy living. Whenever we think of health, diet, or recuperating from illness, we rarely think of the significant role of water consumption. Instead we think of diet, healthy foods, miracle foods, etc. More than all this, drinking sufficient quantity of water everyday has a vast number of health benefits that we often ignore.

Organ Donation and Transplant

At this moment, more than 105,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for an organ. Four thousand more people are added to the national waiting list every day. Each of these people is in desperate need of a kidney, liver, heart or other organ. More than 6,500 people a year – that’s about 18 a day – die before that organ ever becomes available. Organ donors are always in short supply. There are far more people in need of a transplant than there are people willing to donate an organ.

New Sugar Warnings

Those of us walking around with a sweet tooth got more bad news this week. A study by the CDC that was just published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine concluded that adding sugar to the diet can more than double someone's risk of heart related death. Now on the surface this seems like nothing new. Medical professionals have long thought dietary sugar to be a serious issue because it promotes chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity; however, this research suggest that adding sugar to a diet regardless of other health problems increases the risk of death from heart disease. We are not talking about the sugar that naturally occurs in food like the sugar of a fruit; we are taking about refined sugar added to a food product.
