Semen makes you happy and lose weight

A study has found that woman who are directly exposed to semen on a regular basis are less depressed.

New Scientist reports the researchers think this is because mood-altering hormones in semen are absorbed through the vagina.

They say they have ruled out other explanations.

But wait there's more. An abstract for the study conducted at State University of New York says, for females who did not use condoms, depression scores went up as the amount of time since their last sexual encounter increased.

It says: "These data are consistent with the possibility that semen may antagonize depressive symptoms and evidence which shows that the vagina absorbs a number of components of semen that can be detected in the bloodstream within a few hours of administration."

But don't give up on safe sex. New Scientist quotes study leader Gordon Gallup as saying, 'I want to make it clear that we are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms'

'Clearly an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease would more than offset any advantageous psychological effects of semen.'

Japanese man reaches world record age for males

Tokyo - 28 December 2012

A Japanese man reached the world record age of 115 years and 253 days on Friday, the Guinness Book of Records said.

Jirouemon Kimura, of Kyotango city, near Kyoto, was born on April 19, 1897, and is “only the third man in history to be 115 years old”, Guinness said.

Kimura's life across three centuries has spanned “immense social and technological advances including the advent of motor vehicles, television, the internet and 6 UK monarchs, 5 emperors of Japan and 20 US presidents,” it said.

Kimura has 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren.

He owes his longevity to his motto “eat light to live long”, the statement quoted him as saying.

Kimura worked at a local post office for 38 years. He turned to farming after his retirement and continued until the age of 90.

The Guinness record organisation postponed its presentation of Kimura's certificate because he has been recently hospitalised, the Kyodo News agency said, citing city officials.

The previous male record holder was Thomas Peter Thorvald Kristian Ferdinand 'Christian' Mortensen in the United States, who lived to 115 years and 252 days.

The oldest person ever to have lived is Jeanne Calment of France, who lived to 122 years and 164 days and died in 1997.

Kimura became the oldest currently living person this month when Dina Manfredini of Iowa in the US died aged 115 years and 257 days. - Sapa-dpa

Severe vitamin D deficiency independently associated with in-hospital cardiovascular mortality

(NaturalNews) Severe vitamin D deficiency influences heart health: study

Mainstream medicine has promoted the merits of vitamin D's bone health and rickets prevention for decades. For that level of health protection, a low RDA (recommended dietary allowance) was established of 600 iu (international units) daily while a vitamin D blood level at 20 ng/ml (nanograms/milliliter) was considered normal.

Now most real vitamin D experts agree that the minimum 25(OH)D serum level for optimum health and immunity from disease should start at 50 ng/ml. With these recent discoveries, many are taking four to ten thousand iu of vitamin D3 supplements daily, unless they're under the sun relatively bare-skinned and often.

A few courageous heart specialist MDs are breaking through the cholesterol smoke screen scam asserting that arterial inflammation is the root of all cardiovascular issues and heart disease (

A lot of this inflammation is the result of poor diets. But vitamin D also provides a measure of protection against inflammation of all types (

With the link of inflammation to heart disease, it's no wonder that recent studies are pointing to increased heart disease mortality among those vitamin D deficient.

Nine foods you should never eat again

(NaturalNews) With so much misinformation out there about food and how it affects human health, making healthy food choices for you and your family can be difficult and confusing. There are a number of specific foods; however, that you will want to avoid in almost every circumstance because they provide virtually no health benefits while posing plenty of health risks. Here are nine foods you should never eat again if you care about preserving your long-term health:

1) White bread, refined flours. By definition, white bread and refined flours in general are toxic for your body because they have been stripped of virtually all vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other important nutrients. Because of this, the body does not know how to properly digest and assimilate these so-called foods, which can lead to health problems. Refined white flour has also been bleached with chlorine and brominated with bromide, two poisonous chemicals that have been linked to causing thyroid and organ damage. (

Quickest Way To Lose Weight

Actually, if you want to lose weight fast, no single drug can help you reach this goal. I’m not saying that diet supplements can’t help; I’m only saying that they can at best, serve as complements. Essentially, the quickest way to lose weight then boils down to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This implies that your food input and energy output must be well balanced.

Energy Output vs. Calorie Intake

You can take all the diet pills in this world but without maintain a balance between your food input and energy output, you’re not going to get anywhere. In fact, just taking diet pills in the belief that it’s the quickest way to lose weight without controlling your diet is detrimental to your health. However, if you can ensure that your energy output is higher than your food intake, then you are well on your way to losing weight quickly.

It takes Patience

We know, you want the quickest way to lose weight but losing weight takes time. You have to consistently adhere to a healthy diet and engage in adequate physical activities in addition to whatever weight loss supplement you decide to use. There will be times when you feel like giving up, don’t. If you stay true to the course, you will eventually get there.
