Grab a glass of iced tea and sit down for some good reads. It’s the Wholesome Weekend Roundup featuring my top health and wellness links from around the web this week.
Poor Fitness Now = Small Brain Later – As if you needed yet another reason to workout. But here you go.
New Study Links Alcohol to These 7 Different Types of Cancer – Another case for sobriety. I’m all for it. Alcohol and I don’t get along. Though I’ve been known to drink some wine and kick back a Moscow mule from time to time. Apparently your cancer risk isn’t dependent on how much you drink. Though I’m sure drinking more frequently raises your risk.
How Statins Degenerate Your Brain Health – I would rather die than take a statin. I finally convinced my mom to stop taking them. Still working on my dad.
Chilling Testimony From a Cancer Cell Specialist Makes One Thing Utterly Obvious About Our Food – Vote with your dollar and buy organic when possible. And read the article to find out why you should never ever buy conventional strawberries.
Ketone Drink May Help Athletes Unlock Greater Metabolic Human Potential – Another case for ketosis. I’m all for it and wish I had enough will-power to keto-adapt. One day.
Adopt These Healthy Eating Habits from Around the World – I love the idea of fresh fruit as dessert but this article still won’t convince me to eat more lentils. Bleh!
How to Get Rid of a Stiff Neck in Only 90 Seconds – I could have used this technique a few days ago before I paid all that money to see a chiropractor. The left side of my neck was acting up. Probably because I slept on it funny.
Can Drinking More Water Help You Lose Weight? – Drinking more water is one of my health goals. I have no idea why it hasn’t appealed to me lately. I used to carry around a gallon jug with me all day everyday when I lived in California.
Natural High – I keep finding all these articles about how time spent in nature will boost your mood and make you a better person. Time to get outside, people!
Gestational Diabetes and Your Diet – I have quite a few friends who experienced gestational diabetes when they were pregnant. I wonder if they knew how important of a role nutrition plays in preventing it. I’m at high risk of this because I already have PCOS. Thankfully I’m not pregnant, nor do I plan on getting pregnant anytime soon.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool. It’s hot out there!
