California Health Department Warns: Keep Cellphones Far From Your Skin

These phones we're all addicted to and can’t seem to put down is leaking electromagnetic radiation and now California has some guidance to safeguard the public.

The CDPH asks people to decrease their use of these devices and suggests keeping your distance when possible.

“Although the science is still evolving, there are concerns among some public health professionals and members of the public regarding long-term, high use exposure to the energy emitted by cell phones,” said CDPH director Dr. Karen Smith.

The warning comes after findings were offered up this week from a 2009 department document, which was published after an order from the Sacramento Superior Court.

In 2016, UC Berkeley professor Joel Moskowitz initiated to a lawsuit to get the department to release the findings after he started looking into whether mobile phone use increased the risk of tumors.

Training Your Brain To Be Optimistic

Image
Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Its not just your outlook and attitude towards life that decides where you stand, it has a lot to do with the chemical processes in your brain.

Do you find yourself being more negative than you'd like to, the good news is -- optimism can be trained.
Just like any other habit that your brain learns through repetition, when you frequently practice positive thoughts, your brain will be primed to keep them coming — thanks to the formation of neural pathways.
Studies show that optimists are happier, more creative, faster at solving problems and have increased mental alertness as compared to pessimists. Optimists also have less cortisol (stress hormone) and more serotonin (mood-boosting neurotransmitter) flowing through their systems.
With these five tips, you can start training your brain to be optimistic today.

Let's Talk Shoulder Pain

Image
One of the most common areas that trainees injure is the shoulder. With a bit of knowledge and a few simple tips, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of ever having shoulder issues again.



Let's start this way. Right now, whereever you are, stand up and reach toward the ceiling as high as you can. Stretch and hold that position for 20 to 30 seconds.
Seriously, do it. This post is going nowhere.

Welcome back,
Now, don't get mad, but that simple drill wasn't the actual test.
Presumably, you've been sitting in front of your computer for who knows how long, and that little exercise you just performed essentially "reset" your spine and helped counteract the flexed position that's been destroying your back for the past few hours.

"We live in a very flexion-based society," said Mark Young, certified strength and conditioning specialist and owner of MarkYoungTrainingSystems.com. "And more often than not, with few exceptions, anything we can do to …

One Core Exercise For Every Woman

Image
This simple move I assure you will give you a slim waist and even meliorate your sex life in seconds.


There’s one easy move that can whittle your middle, ease your back pain, and even meliorate your sex life and  good enough you can do it wherever you are.
Crunches imonly target the superficial “six-pack” rectus abdominis muscles, says licensed physical therapist Isa Herrera, MSPT, CSCS, founder of PelvicPainRelief.com and author of Female Pelvic Alchemy.  If your abs are hiding under a little extra fat, crunches could actually make a belly bulge worse. Especially if you have the post-pregnancy pooch called diastasis recti, crunches can strain and separate the connective tissue between your abs, making it look like you have a paunch.
Ditch the crunches and try one of Herrera’s favorite moves, which targets the transverse abdominal muscles deep in your core instead of the outer abs. 
You can do the belly hold in any position—lying, sitting, or standing—but Herrera recommends first-time…

The Best Time To Drink Coffee [ its not when you wake up]

Image
That morning cuppa could work better ( boosts your alertness ) and even taste better if you drink it at this specific time.

Most of us probably head for the coffee machine as soon as we wake up in the morning. In fact, over 85 percent of Americans consume caffeine regularly—and coffee is the preferred medium. 
As for the optimal time to drink your daily cup of Joe? There’s a “sweet spot” that could maximize your caffeine kick, and surprisingly enough, it’s not first thing in the morning.
Although having your coffee right away may cause your alertness to spike in the a.m., that feeling quickly crashes just a few hours later. That’s why you should “definitely limit coffee when you first wake up,” Laura Cipullo, registered dietitian and author of
Women’s Health Body Clock Diet, told CNBC .

To get the most bang for your brew, experts recommend drinking your coffee in the mid-morning or early afternoon, instead. Getting a hit of caffeine about three to four hours after you wake up will do …

First Aid/ Remedy for Cardiac Arrest: what to do [video]

Image
Cardiac arrest is the scary moment when the heartbeat suddenly stops for some time; an abrupt loss of heart function in a person who may or may not have heart disease.

Everyday thousands of people suffer from cardiac arrest and not all are lucky enough to survive the fatal condition. This can be prevented or at least be avoided by making few changes in one’s daily life.

Prof. Kamar Adeleke who is a Professor of Medicine/Cardiology at Babcock University, President and CEO of Tri State Cardiovascular Institute, and Chief, Division of Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Laboratory at University College Hospital in Ibadan, explained that following can lead to cardiac arrest:

•Cardiovascular conditions,

•Electrical disturbances in the circulatory system,

•abnormal rhythm of the heart and

•heart attacks.

“The term ‘heart attack’ is often mistakenly used to describe cardiac arrest,” Prof. Adeleke explained.

“While a heart attack may cause cardiac arrest and sudden death, the terms don…

Efficient Home Remedies for Bad Breath

Image
Its funny how most people who have bad breath don't even know it while the ones who have nothing to worry about are constantly worried about theirs. Bad breath involves personal hygiene which makes it a very delicate issue.

Halitosis
In medical terms, bad breath could be called Halitosis, though it is treated lightly, it is a very serious problem as it makes the most attractive of persons sound or look like the dirtiest people in just a moment.
The main causes of this halitosis are hole in the teeth(cavities), gingivitis, poor oral hygiene, periodontitis, coated tongue and odour causing foods.
Other reasons include medication malnutrition, dry mouth, diabetes, stress, reduced immunity, dental issues caused by residue from acid forming foods( such as sugar and protein) sticking to the teeth, tongue and mouth. When there is a less production of saliva ( which acts as antimicrobial agents.) by the salivary glands, it produces bad odour from your mouth.
 Certain foods, chemicals, drin…

The Proper Way To Clean Your Ears

Image
This little trick will do the job perfectly without causing any damage.


The best way to remove any foreign body or wax buildup in the ear is irrigation.

1. Put clean water into a bowl. (Using water that’s too cold or hot can stimulate the auditory nerve-which also controls your balance-and causes dizziness.) You can add some drops of household-strength hydrogen peroxide if you wish.

2. Hold a towel or another bowl under the affected ear to grab the water as it comes out.

3. With the water in the bowl, fill up a bulb syringe, a medical syringe without the needle, or a plastic bag or bottle with a pinhole in the bottom.

4. Use the arm that’s opposite the ear (for example, your right arm if you’re irrigating your left ear), reach around the back of your head, grab your ear, and pull slightly upward.

5. Squeeze the syringe, bag, or whatever you’re using so the water squirts into the ear canal with steady pressure.

6. You’re finished when the glob of wax or object comes out. Stop if the irrigati…

Give up the excuses, you can get in perfect shape without ever visiting the gym.

Everyday, our schedule gets busier, careers get more demanding leaving us with little or no time to hit the gym. But that's no excuse to avoid working out at all.  Its actually easier than you think to work out on the go or when trying to loosen up in front of a TV after a busy day.

These tips have been tested and recommended by the Justichhealth team. They require very little effort but promises huge and satisfying results.

1. Hold your calls
When your cell phone rings, stand up to answer it, don’t sit back down through the whole call. Katy Fraggos of the boutique fitness studio, Perspirology, has a way to make it even more challenging. “Try balancing on one leg throughout the duration of the call. Alternate to balance on the opposite leg when the next call comes in.” Give it a try.

2. Maximize Red Light Stops
Next time you’re stuck in traffic or at a red light, you can easily take advantage of the tim…

But the health a-peel doesn’t stop there:
New research suggests that polyphenols can also promote the growth of friendly bacteria in …

Dental Health: Keep your teeth safe and clean

Image
Your teeth when bright and healthy gives you a wonderful smile which I think is worth preserving. Not everything we ingest is healthy for the teeth, therefore there is need to  apply caution. Note these points below;

No mouth guard, no game

Do you play hockey, football or any contact sport, don't get in the game without a mouth guard. This piece of plastic protects the upper row of the teeth and without it, your teeth could get chipped or even knocked out when the game gets rough. You can get a self fitting mouth guard at the store or have it custom made by a dentist.

Don't chew ice

Ice is natural and sugarless but it isn't entirely harmless. Munching on hard, frozen cubes can chip or crack the teeth. When your chomping irritates the soft tissue  inside the tooth, subsequent toothaches may follow. Also hot and cold foods can trigger sharp, quick jabs of pain or a lingering toothache.

Your teeth is no tool

Opening bottle caps or plastic packaging with your teeth may b…
