It's Okay To Go A Little Nuts About Nuts

I know it may not seem like nuts are healthy if the only person you ever saw eating them was that chubby guy at the end of the bar at Happy Hour, but trust me nuts are good for you. Some are better than others though so let's take a look. According to leading nutritionists today, you can eat almonds, peanuts, walnuts, and even Brazil Nuts without increasing your risk of a heart attack from clogging your arteries.

Estimates say that as many as one in four urban children suffer from asthma. Medical studies continue to probe into the causes of asthma.The best understood cause of asthma is the body's response to inhaled allergens. An allergen is a substance that initiates an immune-system response even though the substance is not technically harmful. Research suggests that genetic characteristics are the reason for each individual's response to allergens.For asthmatics the inhalation of allergens causes the body to produce mucus in the lungs along with chemicals that cause inflammation of the airways.

Be Aware Of Health Conditions That May "Run In The Family"

When people think about family traits being passed down from generation to generation, they are more likely to think of Grandpa's piercing blue eyes or Great Grandma Myrtle's long tapering fingers which were ideal for piano playing. But did you know that your mother's struggle with diabetes may also become yours? Here are some conditions which are known to or are suspected of running in families.First, it's important to point out that family members sharing health problems may not necessarily be related to genetics alone. There are a variety of environmental and habitual factors which must be considered in the equation. For example, a family of Type 2 diabetics may develop this condition because of shared eating habits and obesity. They may not have a genetic predisposition at all, but have simply developed this condition because of their environment.-- Breast cancer is one of several types of the disease which may have a genetic component. Two genes called Breast Cancer Gene 1 and Breast Cancer Gene 2 have b...
