10 Anti Aging Madonna Inspired Health And Beauty Tips

Madonna is set to launch a new album and tour at the age of fifty. Always one to break the rules, she doesn’t look or act like one might expect a fifty-year-old woman to. Her energy level is phenomenal. She looks thirty. In fact her body is leaner and fitter than most women half her age.

How does she look so young? Can any older woman look as good as she does?

These are the antiaging tips I’ve gleaned from the write ups about Madonna.

1. Stay out of the sun as far as possible. Sunlight ages you before your time.
Use sunblock all the time if you are outdoors. Better yet, stay indoors to avoid the sun completely as much as possible.

2. Apply antiaging moisturizers on face and body before you sleep. You know how women keep hands and feet young by applying moisturizer to hands and feet before wearing gloves and socks? Do it. That works.

3. Stop using foundation and powder as they make you look older. For that matter, wear as little makeup as possible. Heavy makeup makes a woman look older.

4. If you need to hide dark circles under the eye or blemishes, use as little concealer as possible.

5. Don’t bother with the sultry kohl rimmed eyed look as that adds years to your appearance. Save the dramatic smoky eye look for young girls who want to look grown up. To highlight your eyes, instead of using black eyeliner and dark eyeshadow, use false eyelashes to make eyes bigger.

6. Go organic. Eat organic food as far as possible. If you must, grow your own organic fruit and vegetables and buy the rest from an organic food store.

7. Stay away from sauces and preservatives.

8. Exercise for 2 hours everyday. Maybe longer if you can spare the time. Wake up early if you must, in order to get the necessary exercise.

9. Take a days break from your workout routine every week. Exercise 6 days a week. Then rest.

10. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables and soya and beansprouts. Stick to a macrobiotic diet.

Cigarette Smoking Is Harmful To Your Health

From the side of the world where I call my sweet home, all cigarette packets have these words in bold “Cigarette smoking is harmful to your health”.

But what I have never understood is why some one with a sane mind wants to continue harming their health.

Although if there were not smokers, the economy of the country would be affected greatly, health issues must be personally crucial.

One thing that hurts greatly is the fact that those who smoke nowadays are young women and men should be healthy mothers and fathers of tomorrow.

What is more, many of the people who smoke are also alcohol abusers a thing that adds up to their health risks.

Why do people smoke?

If you asked different smokers why they do it yet the producing company warn of the dangers involved, they will give you many reasons.

However those I happened to ask gave some of these reasons:

Names not real

Eric who is a teenager said that if he does not smoke, then his peers would not consider him a male stallion with vitality and class. He gave the same reasons for extravagant clubbing and drinking. As he put it, smoking and drinking is part of having fun with friends as young as you.

When I heard Sammy, a family man coughing like a tuberculosis patient I requested to know why he continued smoking. He said that cigarette smoking takes you to another world with no piles of unpaid bills, without loneliness or frequent fights with your wife. For him, a puff is like being in a tranquil spirit that does not bother about the hardships of this modern life.

Shirley is a lady who said that smoking and drinking is just but a means of experiencing life from both sides. In other words if her male counterpart can do something, then she can do it better. Moreover, she confirms that a woman who smokes appears tough and untouchable from the outside and it is hard for her to be taken advantage of.

So I concluded that smoking is rampant because someone wants to have fun, show off, and fit in among the peers, escape real world problems among much other stuff.

A smoking addiction means a person has formed an irrepressible dependence on cigarettes to the point where stopping smoking would cause severe emotional, mental, or physical reactions.

Harms of cigarette smoking

As the producer says, cigarette smoking could damage most of your internal organs, cause cancer and death. Read what can happen to your beautiful and healthy:

Eyes

Chemicals in tobacco cause harm to the macula -the most sensitive part of the retina, the back of the eye. Minute blood vessels can rupture through the macula, leading to permanent harm.

Reliable recent research states that there is a strong association between smoking and a number of common eye diseases, including age- related macular deterioration, glaucoma and cataract.

Smoking causes morphological and functional changes to the lens and retina due to its atherosclerotic and thrombosis effects on the ocular capillaries.

Also, it improves the creation of free radicals and reduces the levels of antioxidants in the blood circulation, aqueous humor and ocular tissue. Eventually, constant smoking may continue more harm and front a permanent blindness.

Mouth and esophagus

Smoking is a risk factor for all cancers associated with the larynx, oral cavity and esophagus. Serious cases, makes it difficult for one to swallow solid food because these parts kind of shrinks.

Drug Patents Are Good For Our Health

Miles White, Chairman and CEO of Abbott Laboratories recently wrote about the importance of drug patents for the future of medicine. He began by talking about a case settled by Abbott and the South American country of Brazil. Brazil felt that the price of Abbott’s AIDS medication Kaletra, the most widely used AIDS medication, was too high and patients could not afford it. They were threatening to break Abbott’s patent and produce a generic version locally in order to treat more patients. The two sides reached an agreement as Abbott agreed to significantly reduce the price per patient and the government agreed to honor the patent.

White points out that while this situation ended well for both parties involved, this issue should not be forgotten. He writes, “…we cannot let the agreement end discussion of the ideas involved; it is essential that we consider their implications so as to avoid situations that might not be so fortunately resolved. What hangs in the balance is how the world will continue to develop the medicines it needs.”

He also writes about the need for a balance to exist between innovation and access to medicine:

“The negotiation raised a well-worn chorus of criticisms of the patent system, but failed to address the underlying question: how would our society continue to progress without it? The problem is that our global needs and global systems are in conflict. This threatens to harm one goal, innovation, in the name of another, access to medicine. Access is the goal the world cares about and one taken seriously by innovator companies (those that conduct research and development of new medicines) that have made significant contributions to this end across the developing world – from building healthcare infrastructure in Africa, to drastic price cuts that have benefited a wide range of countries, including Brazil. But it must be recognized that access is inseparable from innovation: without access, innovation is meaningless; without innovation, there is nothing to have access to.”

White concludes by quoting President Abraham Lincoln, “The patent system added the fuel of interest to the fire of genius.” The patent system exists so that innovation can continue. So scientists’ discoveries are protected.
