Everyone just wants to feel and look their best. For some people, that has to do with eating right and getting in plenty of exercise. For others, that might include a regimen of applying a specific brand of cosmetic products, or taking supplements. Some people might just need a day at the spa, and others find what they are looking for in a laser skin resurfacing center.

Why You Need to Stop Buying Cheap Clothes talks about the nearly insane amount of clothing that U.S. citizens buy every year. The article goes on to explain that the fast fashion trend of buying inexpensive clothing that often quickly goes out of fashion comes at a very high cost.

Buying 10 pair of those flip flops that go one sale at your favorite retail store every Memorial weekend is fun, but the consequences are monumental. When retailers offer inexpensive clothing and have flash sales that drop the prices even lower on speci Continue reading
There is research that shows exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) can cause health problems. For children aged eight to 17, a 2010 study determined that exposure to EMF for even the short term caused irritation, problems concentrating in school and headaches. Chronic EMF exposure was shown to be the cause of physiological stress in cells after only about a year and a half, according to a 2012 study. When compares to conventional heating, EMF can be harmful to cells even at levels that are much lower. Some research has shown that EMF is dangerous at levels that are only one billionth of what conventional heating needs to be harmful. More than ever, people should look to protection such as EMF shielding fabric.
If you want to protect yourself and your family from EMF, there are some things you ca Continue reading

Hundreds and thousands of hard working Americans that earned decent wages and held secure positions with companies for decades suddenly found themselves without jobs and facing foreclosure on their homes due to their inability to pay their mortgage.
But true to the ingenuity and resiliency of the American spirit, many Americans used this challenge as an opportunity to take charge of their life and their finances in a real way, but opening their own business ventures. Many of these business ventures started out as hobbies that were later monetized out of desp Continue reading
