Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened, as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding, she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful talk seen by over 18 million viewers.

This is a new article by Dr. Mercola about how to reduce risk of having a stroke.

These sunscreens are the best for you!

080512-Reviews-011

I am going to buy sunscreens from Eco Logical and Badger this summer, in case we have to be in the sun for several hours. EWG has tested sunscreens and all the ones I have chosen to add to our store registered a score of 1 or 2. EWG´s hazard score 0-2 means low hazard. When it comes to sunscreens no one can score 0. These kinds of sunscreens are often more difficult to put on than for example, spray sunscreens, but on the other hand you know you won´t get a lot of chemicals on your body. If you also want to buy your sunscreens from Eco Logical and Badger, you can do it in our Store here under lifestyle.
