    Many of us take vitamins on a regular basic and this is particularly true as we start to get a bit older. However, in the case of men, and particularly men with a family history of prostate cancer, they could be doing themselves more harm than good.

    In a five year study carried out by the National Cancer Institute and involving nearly 300,000 men it was found that men who were regularly taking more than the recommended daily dose of one multi-vitamin tablet a day increased their risk from advanced prostate cancer by about thirty percent. In addition, the risk of death from advanced prostate cancer was doubled. The study also noted that there was an increased risk in a sub-group of men who also had a family history of prostate cancer or who also took selenium, beta-carotene and zinc supplements.

    One important finding of this study was that there was no apparent increase in the overall rate of prostate cancer within the study group and so there is no suggestion that the excessive use of vitamins actually causes prostate cancer.

    However, in the case of those members of the study group who were taking multi-vitamins in excessive quantities the risk of developing advanced prostate cancer was increased by nearly one-third and their risk of dying from advanced prostate cancer was doubled.

    Vitamin and mineral supplements have been shown over many hundreds of years to have considerable health benefits and today a multi-million dollar industry has been established to meet our growing demand from an ever widening range of supplements. Indeed several, such as green tea extract (EGCG), have been developed specifically for men suffering from prostate problems. So does this study mean that we should stop taking supplements?

    No. First, the study clearly shows that the problem only arises

    As a keen observer, I have noticed that lately there has been a sudden buzz about Rain Nutrition. The community, even more of those in the marketing industry, has been captured of the opportunity that the said company is about to give. Along with this are the stories of course are the typical ‘MLM naysayers’ saying that Rain Nutrition is a scam.

    Well, in this article, let me tackle the truth about Rain nutrition and see if it is a scam, or a legitimate home based business.

    Rain Nutrition is a MLM that registered their domain in May 2009. The said company offers two primary products, soul and rush. The first product, soul, will be competing in the health and wellness market while the second product will be competing the energy drink market. In relation to this, Rain Nutrition’s website states that their products have been developed in partnership with Dr. Arnold Leonardo. The purpose of the said partnership is to create a world class line of nutritional products that will continue to expand along with the demands of the market.

    From that, it can be considered that the opportunity that Rain Nutrition is about to offer is both unique and provocative. But will it live up to the hype?

    Let’s move on with the compensation plan and see what they have to offer.

    As what Rain Nutrition claims, they offer a generous plan. On a weekly basis, Rain Nutrition pays out its distributors a guaranteed fifty percent of all commissionable volume. So distributor’s income depends on the sales he will make. If a distributor is able to make lots of product sales and recruits other sales reps to do the same thing as he does, he can make a large stream of income. This is a common compensation plan

    People fail to lose weight not because they are lazy but because they follow fad diets. If you too are following or want to follow fad diets, don’t expect to lose weight and become slim. In this article I will tell you about three reasons why you shouldn’t use fad diets.

    Bad Track Record
    If fad diets were really so good, why is everyone not losing weight with their help? Weight loss cannot be achieved simply by dieting; there are a whole lot of things to consider here. If you are serious about weight loss, you need to modify your lifestyle habits: you need to change your unhealthy eating habits, you need to stop sitting on the couch, and you need keep your body active at all times.

    Can a fad diet force you to do all these things? No. That is why even if you lose a few pounds initially with those fad diets, you will regain them all back as soon as you get back to your unhealthy lifestyle habits. So, if you really want to lose weight fast, don’t follow any fad diets; rather, be ready to change your lifestyle habits.

    Restircted to only a few foods
    More often than not, fad diets put you into such a strict food restriction that you virtually remain hungry most of the time. Two things can happen here. Either, out of extreme hunger, you will eat loads of junk foods and gain loads of pounds in the process, or if you are one of the ‘self-disciplined’ types, then you will try hard to bear with your hunger, in which case, your body would take over.

    When your body receives inadequate food supply, it would assume that you are going to kill it. In such a case,
