The Joy of almonds #159

Almonds have as much protein per ounce as red meat. Adding almonds into your diet has shown to help reduce the risk of heart attacks by as much as 50%. This result is due to the good-for-your-heart vitamin E found in almonds. Monounsaturated fats can decrease your bad LDL cholesterol levels and increase your good HDL cholesterol levels. Antioxidants help keep your arteries young.

Cool, clean water #653

This one is almost too easy. Drinking five glasses of water a day can reduce your chances of getting a heart attack by 50%. Other fluids like juice, tea, or milk won't do it, your body needs water. Remember, water keeps your body hydrated, which allows your kidneys to function properly, your stomach to digest, it keeps your joints lubricated, your lungs breathing, your temperature warm, and your body to feel energized and alive. If your feeling lethargic or have a headache, its a good possibility that you're just dehydrated. It's your body reminding you to go get a glass of water.

Laughter is indeed the best medicine #67

The old adage has been backed up by a recent study. Findings show that people with a good sense of humor and a propensity to laugh may be less likely to develop heart disease when compared to aggressive, antisocial personalities.
So go ahead, laugh and make others laugh.

Hand-Washing #153

Washing your hands may seem rather unsophisticated compared to today’s medical advances, but it works. Washing your hands reduces the rate of bacterial and viral infections by 1/3 to ½, and gastrointestinal infections by 80%. “Frequent hand-washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infectious disease,” say the Centers for Disease Control.
You should wash your hands before, during, and after food preparation; before eating; after using the bathroom; and after touching pets, animals, or waste of any kind. To wash your hands: apply soap and rub your hands together vigorously for 10-15 seconds not forgetting under your finger nails, rinse and dry your hands after.
