Why am I always tired?

There isn't just one answer to this question. If you notice you are more tired than usual, it is worth consulting with a doctor. Constantly feeling tired could be a sign of a number of health issues, including vitamin deficiency, poor diet, and more.

Why does America offer incentive to people to get vaccinated?  

Coz that's just the way some people work. Even if its the right thing to do, they will still ask for some kind of reward.

What is the keto diet?

Keto diet triggers ketosis, a process in which the liver converts fat into ketones, which the body uses for energy instead of glucose. This not only allows your body to burn fat but can also help you lose water weight.

In addition to weight loss, the keto diet can improve your skin, help with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and be used as a treatment protocol for diabetes. But with pros also comes a list of cons, including short-term weight loss and a string of annoying symptoms summarized as the keto flu.

What is ALS disease?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare neurological disease that primarily affects the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement (those muscles we choose to move). Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time. Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt or reverse the progression of the disease.

ALS belongs to a wider group of disorders known as motor neuron diseases, which are caused by gradual deterioration (degeneration) and death of motor neurons. Motor neurons are nerve cells that extend from the brain to the spinal cord and to muscles throughout the body. As motor neurons degenerate, they stop sending messages to the muscles and the muscles gradually weaken, start to twitch, and waste away (atrophy). Eventually, the brain loses its ability to initiate and control voluntary movements.

Early symptoms of ALS usually include muscle weakness or stiffness. Gradually all voluntary muscles are affected, and individuals lose their strength and the ability to speak, eat, move, and even breathe. Most people with ALS die from respiratory failure, usually within 3 to 5 years from when the symptoms first appear. However, about 10 percent of people with ALS survive for 10 or more years.

ALS was once commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, following the retirement of the famous ballplayer in the 1940s due to the disease.

Should I Go Gluten-Free?

Go gluten-free if you have celiac disease, when gluten (a protein in grains) damages your small intestine. Experts no longer think gluten causes rashes, stomachaches, or weight gain in people without the disease. It can’t hurt to skip gluten-rich foods like cookies and white bread. But don’t ditch whole grains unless your doctor says to. They fill you up and are full of healthy nutrients.

Is Wine Healthy?

Not everyone will benefit from drinking. For some, small amounts can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes — but one drink a day is enough for many. If you don’t drink at all, that’s even better. Heavy alcohol use has been linked to certain cancers and liver disease, while even moderate drinking can raise blood pressure and cut into your sleep time.

Alcohol can be good for some things — a little bit each day might help lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. But heavy drinking can lead to liver damage, heart problems, breast cancer, colon cancer, and other kinds of cancers
