What Good Is It To Stop Smoking If I Have Smoked For Years?
I often hear people say that they have smoked for so long that they can't see what good it would do to quit now. So what is the big deal if you quit smoking? Will it do you any good or is it a pointless exercise in futility?
My answer always is that the benefits of quitting smoking are enormous. Here are some powerful reasons for quitting: The excess risk of developing heart disease as a result of smoking may be reduced by as much as half in the year or two after quitting. After 15 years, the former smoker's risk of heart disease approaches that of a person who has never smoked. Five to 15 years after quitting the risk of stroke returns to the level of those who have never smoked.
Quitting reduces the risk of lung cancer; 10 years after quitting the risk for lung cancer is 30% to 50% that of the risk of those who continue to smoke. Men who quit at age 35 increase their life expectancy by 7 to 9 years. Women who quit at age 35 increase their life expectancy by 6 to 8 years. It is never too late to gain benefits from quitting. Quitting at age 45 increases life expectancy by 6 or 7 years. Quitting at age 55 increases life expectancy by 3 to 6 years. Quitting at age 65 increases life expectancy by 1.4 to 4 years.
So how are those for good reasons? No matter how long you have smoked, quitting will provide you with some benefit. That benefit may be profound. It could lengthen your life by as much as a decade. Don't wait. Throw out your cigarettes and stop smoking today.

The Vitamin Companies Don?t Want You To Know
Do you ever find yourself asking any or all of these questions:
Vitamin B5 - Your Digestive System Depends On It
Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid plays a supporting role in the secretion of hormones, such as cortisone. In so doing, Vitamin B5 assists body metabolism, wards off body allergies and helps keep the skin, muscles, and nerves in optimum condition. The human body also needs the help of Vitamin B to release energy as well as to metabolize fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Without this vitamin, the body will encounter problems with creating neurotransmitters, certain hormones, and haemoglobin. This gives you an idea how important this vitamin is to the body's vital functions! Great sources of Vitamin B5 are beef, brewer's yeast, eggs, fresh vegetables, kidney, legumes, liver, mushrooms, nuts, pork, royal jelly, saltwater fish, and whole-wheat foods. Vitamin B5 Deficiencies Research also indicates that lack of enough Vitamin B5 in the body can lead to fatigue, headaches, nausea, depression, and even moodiness. If you find yourself prone to infection, fatigue, abdominal pains, sleep disturbances and neurological disorders, you might consider taking prescribed amounts of Vitamin B5. Is your diet utterly lacking in non-refined foods? Are you taking a lot of alcohol? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will need more Vitamin B5 in your system. Vitamin B5 Dosage The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is between 10 to 100 mg. Exceeding the limit usually leads to diarrhea; with taking 15 or more times the limit usually leading to hypersensitive teeth. Vitamin B5 performs best when taken with the rest of the B complex vitamins, and with Vitamin A, C, and E.

Omega-3 And Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is responsible for numerous deaths in the U.S. and other countries around the world. It is not the same as a heart attack. A heart attack normally occurs when advanced atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries) slowly starves the heart causing irreversible damage. The heart finally cannot function properly and stops. Sudden cardiac death occurs when the electrical impulses that control heart function become erratic resulting in an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). When the arrhythmia is severe enough the heart suddenly stops, starving the brain of needed blood. Death often follows quickly unless emergency care is administered immediately. Often sudden cardiac death occurs when no other heart disease is detected.
