Healthy feeding for men and the importance of wholesome, nourishing foods

In his book In Defense of Food, Michael Pollan offers three simple, easy-to-remember “rules” for eating: 1. Eat food, 2. Not too much, 3. Mostly plants. Eating food should not be aimed at merely filling your stomach – it is more than that regular daily routine we think it is.

Understanding Cerebrovascular Accident: Causes, Symptoms, and How to Naturally Prevent Stroke

Medical science describes stroke as a sudden loss of consciousness resulting when the rupture or occlusion of a blood vessel leads to oxygen lack in the brain. A number of reasons can be adduced for the cause of stroke, but the major causative factor is usually a blocked artery in the case of ischemic stroke, or the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel in the case of haemorrhagic stroke.
