Quick bits about foot fungus, exercise and prescriptions

Lavender oil isn't just for a good night's sleep.  It also contains antifungal properties.  It helps to fight off  skin and nail problems such as althlete's foot.  Try adding 20 drops of lavender oil to a tub filled with hot water and soak your feet for 20 minutes at least twice a week.

Did you know that just thinking about working out makes you eat more?  Cornell University states that those who read about exercise ate 701 caleries of snack later on -- that turns out to be about 340 more calories than those who only answered personal questions.  Next time try thinking about the health benefits and not the slimming effects of exercise.  Exercise only slims if the diet is adjusted.

How are you feeling about the prescriptions your doctor has written for you?  You may want to check to see if the doctor has been paid to promote the med or not.  In 2009 eight pharamaceutical giants began to pay doctors for prescribing certain drugs and ProPublica wants to tell you about it.  Between 2009 - 2010, drugmakers gave doctors $320 million to promote their meds.
