Today's Featured Topics



The Power of Suggestion
You're too smart to fall for the claims made in infomercials, right? What about marketing claims for dietary supplements? Even highly-educated people can be fooled quite easily by their own beliefs and expectations. This affects what they think about the effectiveness of a product. Read more about this important topic in: "Don't Underestimate the Power of Suggestion"

Pedometers
Walking is a great form of exercise for almost everyone. While it won't prepare you to compete in a triathlon or tennis tournament, it certainly will help you lose weight, and lower your risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The current recommendation is 10,000 steps per day. To keep track, you're going to need a good pedometer. Learn more at: "Pedometers"

Heart Rate Monitors
Heart rate monitors are not just for serious athletes. Monitoring your heart rate can provide valuable insight into not only your level of fitness, but, also, the health of your cardiovascular system. Everyone should own one and use it regularly.
