Is It Possible To Grow Taller?

tallerBeing less than tall hasn’t done Danny de Vito or Tom Cruise any harm, or hampered them from having gorgeous women clinging to their arms. Being tall doesn’t guarantee riches or happiness, yet some people still hanker after being taller. Short of the torture stretching racks used in Medieval days there really isn’t a handy solution once the bones have fused in adulthood, and even the racks weren’t used as a means of increasing height but rather of inflicting hideous torture.

Is it True?

Naturally though there are people willing to take advantage of peoples desires and if you want to be taller there will be someone out there promising you a solution, for a price. “The world’s best selling book” is the label on Robert Grand’s book ‘Growing Taller Secrets’ in which he touts that it is possible to grow taller despite having no scientific credentials. All you have to do is send off the $39 for the book which will impart the great secret which remains a mystery to everyone else.

Of course only through the book will you “learn the most important formula to accomplish anything in your life including growing taller.” It sounds as about as authentic as the miracle diets which will make you lose 30lbs in a week. If such a secret had been discovered then Mr Grand could have made a few million out of it rather than purveying it through ebooks.

Enjoy Cashews And Improve Your Health

cashew nutsA lot has been written about nuts, and by now most of us appreciate that they are good for us. However, the health benefits of cashews have been ignored for a long time. I often wonder why we have ignored the health benefits of these nuts. Maybe it is because along with peanuts, they are often served salty as a bar snack. It would perhaps be beneficial if we took another look at cashews, and found out how we could enjoy them, before we started to discuss their health benefits. There is a lot more to these nuts than a bar snack.

How to Enjoy Cashews

Most nuts can be used in cooking, but some are more user friendly than others. Walnuts can be used in cooking, and so can peanuts, but they don’t really add a lot of flavor. Yes, you can get peanut Satay, but that has a lot more stuff in it than just ground peanuts. Cashews have the unique ability to add flavor to food without having to be processed in any way. As a matter of fact, you can use them straight out of the packet.

The Hobby of Chicken Keeping for Nutritious Eggs

It seems that more and more people are keeping chickens. It may be one of those things that you notice more once you have an interest in them, like when you get a new car, and suddenly you see that same car all over the place, but before then you had never really noticed them. It’s been like that for me since we got our first chickens a couple of years ago. Before then they were something I’d seen on the tv or in petting zoos, but after I had some, I found out that someone I knew had 24 bantam chickens in her garden. Another acquaintance regularly ‘hen sat’ for a friend of hers when they went away for a few days and the guy at the top of the road started selling eggs from his front gate. He has given his whole back yard over to several coops and tens of chickens that he got around the same time I got mine (although I didn’t know it at the time). Everyone is doing it!

It is easy to see how so many are drawn to these birds. There are numerous myths and truths surrounding chickens, for instance, you can tell in most cases what color egg a chicken will lay by looking at the spot of skin around their ears. White lobes on a chicken mean they will lay white eggs; a brownish lobe will yield brown eggs. You do get some individuals that are a bit standoffish or skittish but in the main chickens are rather friendly, nosey birds who will follow you around (particularly if you have food!) and can make great family pets.

Lots of people claim that they have experienced health benefits after embarking on a health care routine using apple cider vinegar. The claims range from rapid weight loss to getting rid of arthritis. But, are the benefits real or imaginary?

Scientists are a little bit skeptical about the health benefits of apple cider vinegar. It is quite possible that it is true, but the opposite can be true as well. A few years ago, scientists working for a major lab carried out an experiment. It was a very extensive trial and involved 10,000 people who suffered from various health conditions. Out of the 10,000 participants, 5000 were given apple cider vinegar and the other 5000 were given a placebo in the exactly same bottle. None of the participants knew which ones had received the “real thing”, not even the scientists. When they results were analyzed, the truth came out.

Does apple cider vinegar work for weight loss?

Out of the 2000 participants in the weight loss trial, only 1000 were given the real product, the rest were given a placebo. All were told not use any other weight loss products, or programs, during a period of three months. Every month they had to return to the lab to chart their progress. Vital signs such as weight, blood pressure and heart rate were monitored. As each bottle had a unique number, and the scientists knew the participants by a number, there could be no cheating or false indications. Only an outside organization knew who had received the genuine product.
