Chocolate is said to contain substances that naturally elevate your mood. Yet researchers find that those who eat the most chocolate actually have the highest risk of depression.

Fish Oil and Breast Cancer
Fish oil protects more than just your heart. Women who take fish oil also have lower rates of breast cancer, according to a large study.

Green Tea and Weight Loss
A new study adds to the evidence that green tea helps increase your fat-burning metabolism. The more fat you have to burn, the better it might work.

Vitamin C and the Sun
Vitamin C improves iron absorption and helps protect your skin from sun damage. Your body can't store vitamin C, so be sure to replenish your supply frequently.

Soft Drinks and Skin Cancer
As if you needed one more reason to put down that super-sized soft drink, new research suggests a possible link between soda and the risk of skin cancer.

Obesity and Age
By eating many fruits and vegetables in place of fast food and junk food, people could avoid obesity. Obesity accelerates aging even faster than smoking, according to scientific research.

Hydration is vital...

Are you drinking enough water?
This list of 13 symptoms will inspire you to go get a glass of water, and then another, and another … (After each symptom we will show how lack of fluid affects the issue.)

1. Fatigue, Energy Loss: Dehydration of the tissues causes enzymatic activity to slow down.
2. Constipation: When chewed food enters the colon, it contains too much liquid to allow stools to form properly, and the wall of the colon reduces it. In chronic dehydration, the colon takes too much water to give to other parts of the body.
3. Digestive Disorders: In chronic dehydration, the secretions of digestive juices are less.

4. High and Low Blood Pressure: The body's blood volume is not enough to completely fill the entire set of arteries, veins, and capillaries.
5. Gastritis, Stomach Ulcers: To protect its mucous membranes from being destroyed by the acidic digestive fluid it produces, the stomach secretes a layer of mucus.
6. Respiratory Troubles: The mucous membranes of the respiratory region are slightly moist to protect the respiratory tract from substances that might be present in inhaled air.

7. Acid-Alkaline Imbalance: Dehydration activates an enzymatic slowdown producing acidification.
8. Excess Weight and Obesity: We may overeat because we crave foods rich in water. Thirst is often confused with hunger.
9. Eczema: Your body needs enough moisture to sweat 20 to 24 ounces of water, the amount necessary to dilute toxins so they do not irritate the skin.
10. Cholesterol: When dehydration causes too much liquid to be removed from inside the cells, the body tries to stop this loss by producing more cholesterol.

11. Cystitis, Urinary Infections: If toxins contained in urine are insufficiently diluted, they attack the urinary mucous membranes.
12. Rheumatism: Dehydration abnormally increases the concentration of toxins in the blood and cellular fluids, and the pains increase in proportion to the concentration of the toxins.
13. Premature Aging: The body of a newborn child is composed of 80 percent liquid, but this percentage declines to no more than 70 percent in an adult and continues to decline with age.
