Hoodia Not For Pregnant Women

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Hoodia is being touted as the dieting miracle of the century, but there have not been any studies to determine if there is an adverse affect on pregnant women, women who are about to get pregnant, or nursing mothers. Dieting during pregnancy, unless under doctor’s orders and medical supervision, seems a risky proposition to begin with. Taking diet supplements during pregnancy, even if there is no evidence that they have harmful short term effects, like Hoodia, should probably be avoided entirely.

Hoodia special report.

Women Body Building

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Have you ever considered beefing-up? Okay, for those of you who have no clue what that means, I just want to assure you that it has nothing to do with beef products and cooking. By beefing-up I mean getting stacked, ripped and totally solid. You know, gain some significant muscle weight. If you are a male, then you can be certain that this will impress the ladies. Hey, I’m not just saying that either. The truth is that most women find muscular men attractive. Within moderation of course. I’m not telling you to get as buff as the Incredible Hulk himself. I’m just saying that 20 pounds of extra muscle can go a long ways. I recall when I was skinny back in high school. I was glad to pack on 15 pounds of pure muscle as an adult. I didn’t want to keep a child’s body forever. Oh, and we shouldn’t forget about the women body building. I’m sure some ladies could use some extra brawn.

The topic of women body building is such a bizarre one. It’s actually not that commended, or have you noticed? Just check out what is considered attractive in both genders. Sure, men are preferred to be buff and strong. However, one mention of women body building and men bolt. They typically want nothing to do with a lady who’s stacked and strong. They expect a Victoria’s Secret body from the softer sex. Now, I personally can’t knock the delicate figure of a standard woman, but I see nothing wrong with women body building. In fact, I think it’s a wonderful idea. I would think contemporary women would love to be ripped and strong. Imagine your new physical prowess in comparison to the average female. Imagine how the men you encounter would not be near as physically dominating as before. Maybe you would now possess the brute strength over them. That has got to sound enticing. You’re going to fill out that little black dress a lot better too.

One factor you may want to consider regarding women body building is the reason why men don’t prefer a buff lady. I think it’s all about intimidation. If the woman is strong, the man may feel less adequate. Hey, this is their problem. Not yours! So for all you women body building nuts out there, check out that Bowflex home gym and lift on. Achieve that ripped figure that you’ve always wanted. It may give you much more confidence and peace of mind.

Heart Attack Aspirin Therapy Not Provided For Cancer Patients

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

Many cancer patients who have heart attacks often are not treated with life saving aspirin given the belief in the medical community that they could experience lethal bleeding. Researchers at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, however, say that notion is now proven wrong and that without aspirin, the majority of these patients will die.
