Do you live on fast food and energy drinks? Can you not even remember the last time you drank a glass of pure water? If so, you’re increasing your risk of developing colon cancer. This article explains why you may need to get a colonoscopy much earlier than 50 years old and what foods you should eat to decrease your cancer risk.
Should You Wait to Get a Colonoscopy?
According to the American Cancer Society, men should start getting a colonoscopy every ten years starting at age 50. But does this mean you? Should you really wait until you’re fifty years old to start getting yourself checked for colon cancer? This may depend on your family history, diet, and lifestyle.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve noticed an increase in searches and questions about intestinal parasites. The blog I wrote a couple of years ago about the subject seems to be a bit too vague. So I’m writing my personal account of how I cured my intestinal parasites in 2010 with a product called Paragone from ReNew Life.
Back in January of 2010, I suddenly began feeling very sick to my stomach and getting diarrhea almost every day. At first I thought I may have been somehow getting gluten in my diet but that didn’t make sense. I always ate the exact same things. I scoured my fridge and cabinets and threw out anything suspect just to be safe but things went from bad to worse.
In our every day busy lives, many of us may not put much focus on how much sleep we get. Many people feel that they get enough sleep as long as they don’t feel tired the next day. The fact is, sleep is very important to our overall health and not getting enough sleep can have detrimental effects on our bodies.
Sometimes you may feel that there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done that you need to finish. Many times, we may cut off a few hours of sleep just so that we have more time to get things done. Even though you may not feel the effects immediately, sleep deprivation can cause harm to your body down the road.
Research has shown that getting less than 8 hours of sleep a night can have detrimental effects on our overall health. Not getting enough sleep puts you at a higher risk of developing obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and a weakened immune system. When your immune system is weak, it can not fight off viruses and germs that you may come in contact with, which means that you may become sick more often.
