18 May 11 Biotechnology and colonoscopy research

Based on a recent news on the “The New Economy”, a Belgian Biotechnology firm and a Danish Biotechnology company called Exiqon  are developing a new type of blood tests to detect colon cancer. A colon cleanse is a relative cheap process of cleaning the colon of its built-up fecal matter. According to many sources, most people may have from 5 to as much as 40 lbs of fecal matter residue in their colon. Much of this is probably compacted matter, putrefied proteins, rancid fats, and fermented carbohydrates. According to some recent studies, if this accumulation is not eliminated, it can lead to such chronic problems as constipation, bloating, body odor, bad breath, back ache, weight problems, a weak immune system and even, in the ultimate stage, bowel cancer.

There are ways to cleanse the colon in a natural way. One of the natural colon cleansing methods is to change ones diet. Adding larger portions of fresh fruit and steamed vegetables, fiber-rich cereals and bran, can help to eliminate the compacted fecal matter. There are also herbal remedies that claim to achieve natural colon cleansing and reduce the high costs of a colonoscopy. Most of these herbs contain psyllium husk. The husk swells in its passage through the colono when it comes into contact with water, and hence pushes the compacted matter out and emptying the bowel. Will be the Biotechnology the new science that can help to reduce colon cancer problem and colon test costs? Let’s see what will happen !

15 Oct 10 Get strong and toned abs in a very short time

I am really happy with my flex belt! It helped me get strong, toned abs quicker than I ever could on my own or with any other equipment. I have only been using the flex belt for 60 days and I am already more toned, stronger and thinner than I have ever been. For me, having a tight core is a must. I had tried everything from diets, weightlifting, even yoga! Nothing has worked as well as my flex belt. This contour abs belt has toned me in a way nothing ever has before. I am a work –a-holic and have trouble getting to the gym every day. Having something easy that I can do at home to better tone my stomach has been a life saver. It allows me to get all my other household tasks done, all while toning my stomach.

I can dust, vacuum and fold laundry all while working out and getting contour abs!
The flex belt is like doing electronic sit ups. Traditional sit ups are such a pain to do. You not only have to find the time but a place to do them as well. The flex belt is the perfect solution. It takes no time to use it since you can multi-task and do other chores while getting a great abs work out at the same time. This means no more excess fat or ‘jiggly’ parts around your mid section. With this ingenious abs toner, you simply put it around your waist and let it do the work for you.

It flexes away all that excess weight leaving you the time to do other things without interfering with your workout. You can get Britney Spears’ abs without all the work!
The flex belt is FDA cleared for toning and strengthening your abdominal region and has medical grade toning technology for men and women. With the flex belt you can feel results in as little as 4 weeks! If you use your flex belt daily you should see results in 4 to 8 weeks. Using it regularly, once a week, after that can help maintain results. The flex belt retails for $199, which took me aback a little at first. But once I calculated how much I would be saving on gym fees, gas to and from the gym, not to mention putting a price on my free time I realized what a deal I was really getting. Being free from gyms and working out truly is priceless.
