Mammograms For Breast Cancer

Every two years my doctor will send me for a mammogram screening since he found few small cysts on my left breast. Although they are all said to be non cancerous cyst, it is still better to have a close observation by having a regular mammogram.

A mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. It can find changes in the breast, even when the changes are too small for you and your doctor to feel or to see. For most women this is normal.

In Ontario, breast cancer is the common type of cancer for women. As the women get older the chance of getting breat cancer rises.

Diet Pills To Lose Weight

Is it really good to take diet pills to lose weight? On my own experience, diet pills only help to speed up the metabolism. Some can help clean up your system which helps you to lose weight. It is still important to stay active and eat healthy foods. Diet pills will never work if you will not change your unhealthy lifestyle. Losing weight means having a healthy lifestyle.

Certain foods that are rich in calories, fat and sugar or salt should only be enjoyed occasionally, whether or not they are found in the Food Guide. These includes foods such as cookies, chips, candy cars, fries, cakes, pastries, commercia muffins, alcohol and sweet drinks.

Not all diet pills are safe, so it is important to ask your doctor before taking any diet pills. Even those that are said to be made with natural ingredients cannot be condsidered safe. Knowing and recognizing the food guide serving is the key to meeting all your needs and maintaining a healthy weight.

How To Avoid Being Constipated When Travelling

Everytime we trvel or I am not at home for a couple of days, I always end up being constipated for some reason. Our last short vacation gave me another abnormal bowel movement. First, I forgot to bring a lot of bottled water. So since the bottled water is quite expensive at the hotel, I just ignore my needs to drink as much water as I can to avoid being constipated. Secondly, I ignore eating food rich in fiber and ate unhealthy and fatty foods instead.

This is a lesson I should remember on my next vacation trip. I should bring a lot of bottled water so it will remind me to drink as much water as I can. I will also bring fruits with me that will remind me that even if I am on vacation, I should focus on eatinf healthy foods and foods rich in fiber to avoid being constipated during the vacation or travel trips.

Know If You Have Sensitive Skin

I have a very sensitive skin and I believe that the skin is an effective barrier to most things. Some sunbstances can penetrate this barrier and cause irritation. So the thinnner your skin, the less effective it is in keeping out those irritants. Skin actually varries in thickness on different parts of our body. Try to touch it and you will notice that it is thickest on the palms of our hands and the soles of your feet. The thiniest is on our eyelids. Elderly and young children in particular have thinner and more sensitive skin.

An irritating chemicals will cause more immediate irritations on thin or craked skin than on thick skin. If your skin response quickly to irritatiing cosmetic ingredients, if is fair to say that you have a sensitive skin. If you are sensitive to a particular cosmetic, it best to try another brand with significantly different ingredients.

Why Do We Have Blackheads

Blackheads are black specks that appear on the face, shoulders, upper arms and chest. They occur when hair follicles or sebaceous glands of the skin become blocked with the skin's natural, oily secretions or with some oily chemicals or cosmetic ingredients. The mixture trapped inside the follicle hardens and becomes a olug that blackens on the surface where it meets the air. The incidence of blackheads can be reduced by regular washing and by avoiding comedogenic chemicals.

There is rarely a bacteria infection in blackheads but, if they do become infected, red pimples appear. Whiteheads and acne occur when the infection has developed.
