The 1 piece of fitness equipment you should be using but aren't
There are choices we have to make every day: Should we take the stairs or the elevator? Call it quits at mile three or keep trudging along? Do a few extra burpees or drop to our knees?

Another study confirms the beauty of the Mediterranean diet
If we didn’t quite believe that the Mediterranean diet was one of the best for heart health — not to mention a slew of other areas of health, and longevity — a new study offers even more evidence. People in Greece who adhered strongly to the diet had almost half the risk of developing heart disease in the next decade than people who didn’t stick to it as well. So why aren’t more people converting, given the amount of convincing research on it?

Is exercise addiction really so bad?
U.S. News & World Report
The relationship between our behavior and health is often believed to be linear. We know, for instance, that drinking water, wearing sunscreen, sleeping enough and exercising all boost our well-being. So we assume that the more we engage in these behaviors, the healthier we’ll be.

Good nutrition is only one part of the puzzle — you can’t eat your way out of an otherwise unhealthy lifestyle.
VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS
High levels of vitamin D is suspected of increasing mortality rates

Scientists from the University of Copenhagen are the first in the world to show that there is a connection between high levels of vitamin D and cardiovascular deaths. In terms of public health, a lack of vitamin D has long been a focal point. Several studies have shown that too low levels can prove detrimental to our health.
