Soy and Six Pack Abs

September 15, 2008

Inevitably there’s a myth that soy protein is horrible for bodybuilding and six pack abs and that if you are any where near serious about working out or building muscle you will stay away from it. In fact, some sites show ‘studies’ that soy protein and soy products can be detrimental to your health. And while it’s true that early claims of soy wonders might not be entirely true, there’s also myth that soy protein is bad.

The myth that soy will cause men to produce estrogen is when VAST quantities are ingested. A person that uses soy will not feel any differences be any less anabolic then another person who does not consume soy at all for six pack abs.

Allergies and Cord Blood

September 15, 2008

A study was done tracking 1,300 children born between 1989 and 1990, who had a sample of their cord blood taken at birth , to measure an immune system response showing a sensitization to certain allergens. The children were assessed at different ages to determine if they had developed any allergies or asthma.

Children who had higher rates of allergy and asthma also had high antibodies to allergens in their umbilical cord blood at birth. Thus researchers concluded that high antibody levels in umbilical cord blood may be an important predictor of childhood allergies.

Colon Cleanse and Allergies

September 15, 2008

Allergies strike seasonally due to irritants such as tree pollen, weed pollen, grass pollen, but allergic reactions can also occur perennially due to dust mites, pets, mold, etc. Doing a colon cleanse may help.

Allergy symptoms occur when your immune system overreacts to these irritants; your immune system is actually doing its job of removing the irritant from your body. Scientific studies are coming out now that show that over 50% of our immune system is in our colon. If this is true, a colon cleaning may be imperative to good health.
