* My New Warning: Avoid THESE Medical Treatments Whenever Possible
Please heed my carefully considered advice the next time you're advised to undergo a test or start a new treatment, whether it be from your own physician or your local hospital. It might help save you from joining the 30,000 Americans on Medicare alone who lose their lives EVERY year to dangerous tests and unnecessary medical procedures. [Prescriptions drugs and unnecessary medical tests equals TWO-THIRDS of all health care expenditures.  Top-Selling Drugs Cause More Harm than Good. Dangerous unnecessary tests include: Routine CT scans in the ER; Antibiotics for cold viruses that are not even treatable with antibiotics; Pap tests for women who don't have a cervix. Women stand the greatest risk of receiving an unnecessary medical procedure. If you are a female living in the US, when it comes to healthcare, you might as well have a target on your back. The CDC reports that one-third of American women have had a hysterectomy by age 60; and half of them have had one by age 65. Yet 85 percent of these surgeries are unnecessary. NIH says that 33 to 75 percent of C-sections are totally unnecessary. Women have up to four times the risk of complications with a C-section than a vaginal birth.]

Having too little cholesterol INCREASES your risk for cancer, memory loss, Parkinson's disease, hormonal imbalances, stroke, depression, suicide, and violent behavior.

* Fail to do This AFTER a Workout and Your Whole Effort is Wasted
Feel like you're on a fitness roller-coaster? Even pro athletes fall victim! The key is not what you do during the workout - but after. Discover what your body is telling you... and how to exploit what it's saying to boost performance. Plus, three signals your heart rate and perspiration are sending that you shouldn't ignore. [The Key to Better Fitness is Full Recovery. No amount of training will reap beneficial long-term fitness gains unless the training is properly balanced with adequate recovery time allowing the body to rebuild itself back to its full functional level. Achieving Ideal Weekly Workout "Total Training Load". To achieve the most beneficial effects from your workouts in the shortest time it's essential to understand the concept of total load. Total Training Load refers to the total amount of training "strain" on the body over time. For example, one single super-hard workout can strain the body as much as several moderate intensity workouts done back to back can. The Total Training Load can be increased by increasing the number of exercise repetitions, resistance, length of workout sets and by increasing the speed of repetitions and, also, by shortening the rest interval between exercise sets. If the Total Training Load is in excess too long, the body breaks down, and illness, over-training, burnout, and injury occur.]
