1. The air almost unbreathable in the gyms

When we exercise, we inhale more air on each breath and most of the air passes through the mouth, ignoring the natural filtering system, the nostrils. Pollutants entering the lungs and complications may begin! Beware of the ventilation as influences on cognitive and physical performance. Always have the chance to go outdoors, interspersing!

2. Stop lying about time. If your time isn’t yours then neither is your life

“Exercise, health, better sleep, time to relax, meditation, eating well etc is rarely something we need to do urgently. Changing a habit or doing more of what contributes to our longevity and health is usually not urgent. It doesn’t have to be done right then. Which is why we put it off for “when we have time.” But it’s important.
That is, until we break down enough in health or energy. Then we feel the pressure to change and scramble to throw money at what will get us the quickest result. Then it becomes both urgent and important”.

3. Medical exams in FC Barcelona

Assessment is (very) important in high competition but attention and to shuffle: clients use the Personal Trainer to stay in shape and feel good and not to be (constantly) to make evaluations. Always have the attention to evaluate and register lately. It may be boring…

4. Sorry, Your Gut Bacteria Are Not the Answer to All Your Health Problems

“The hype has kicked off a gold rush. Big food companies—including Nestle, PepsiCo, Monsanto, and General Mills—have funded gut bacteria studies, and some have even opened centers to develop foods that interact with the microbiome, such as probiotics. According to Transparency Market Research the global probiotics market is expected to reach an astonishing $45 billion by 2018″.

“Still, despite the optimism, some researchers caution that much of what we hear about microbiome science isn’t always, well, science. Dr. Lita Proctor heads the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Microbiome Project (HMP), an outgrowth of the Human Genome Project. “We are discovering a whole new ecosystem,” she says. But “I do have some fear—we all do in the field—that the hype and the potential overpromise, and the idea that somehow this is going to be different—there is a terrific fear that it will all backfire.”

Documentary: “Cowspiracy- the sustainability secret”

Have environmental concerns? With the future of your children? With others? The documentary, required, “Cowspiracy-The sustainability Secret ” aims to put into effect the production of meat and their food choices. And why? Because it is a very inconvenient truth!

Based on the reports of the institutions FAO  and World Watch, (scientifically proven and controlled), with no conspiracy, on the impact of agriculture on the environment,  show what incredibly Al Gore, conveniently (?) didn’t want to tell in “an inconvenient truth”: the biggest polluting our environment is the production of animals!

Away from the hype of Michael Moore and his followers, this documentary produced by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn is organic, puts a naked truth. Search scientifically, in institutions, in environmental groups like Greenpeace, in the State, in the production, in public opinion.

Interesting fact: “75% of Americans considers himself an environmentalist. Well, as proved by the facts in this film, you can’t be an environmentalist and eating animals, fish included, patience! Less than 3 of Americans are vegetarians “. Attention is not what we are talking about, vegetarianism. We are talking about  sustainability and future of our planet. If you want a sustained change of “global climate” has to be around here, necessarily.

The film explains that animal agriculture is responsible for, give or take, 51% of  gas emissions released into the Earth’s atmosphere, citing a report of the 2009 Wordwatch Institute. Animal agriculture is also a major cause of water depletion, deforestation, extinction of species and oceans with “dead zones”.

The most shocking are the opinions of the most famous institutions environmentalists who know but don’t want to know, a worth listen! Are interviewed doctors, scientists, government officials, producers, well directed, complete, without “dead zones”. Step-if dangerous, unstable terrain, and as the representative of the Amazon Watch admits: “a lot of people just keep your mouth shut because he doesn’t want to be the next with a bullet in the head”.

Even being a vegan you are contributing to the consumption of meat. How? Well, you have to see the movie to find out the reason. It’s embarrassing, pure and when many times science, graphics, articles, statistics, images are exposed, there is always the voice of Andersen to make us come back to earth because that is what we are talking about.

For a new blink of an eye, we clean the seeing that make us view seriously what the true path, and not just diets and more diets, seeing the world, our wonderful planet, one step, as “something inexhaustible” (not) at the mercy of homo sapiens sapiens and its follies. Not so much the sky or the earth but … now and already, in the middle, we are humans!
