Ever wish you could get addicted to working out? Guess what? You can. In this post, I tell you 10 ways to create a healthy addiction to exercise.
Two of my friends died last month. These were both guys who ate all organic food… we’re talking supremely healthy, nutrient-dense diets. They died almost within a week of each other.

(2 1/2 hours of walking less than 2 MPH is the equivalent of 10,000 steps, which is what we are doing in the FitBit Challenge.)

In the wake of the latest terrifying school shooting in Newtown Connecticut, The Washington Post reports that 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza who killed 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, Connecticut was on pharmaceutical drugs. This has yet to be confirmed. However, it’s important to note that almost every incidence of violence in schools in the past 25 years has been connected to pharmaceutical drugs.
