Mandi pakai air panas
Dr Nick Lowe, konsultan ahli kulit di Cranley Clinic di London mengutarakan bahwa masyarakat modern saat ini sudah berlebihan dalam urusan membersihkan badan.

“Kebanyakan dari mereka mandi setiap hari dengan memilih menggunakan air panas dan dikombinasikan dengan produk pembersih yang kasar sehingga dapat mengurangi kelembapan kulit, kekeringan, pecah-pecah bahkan infeksi,” sahut Dr Nick.

“Sementara yang paling baik adalah menggunakan air dingin dan menggunakan sabun yang antibusa atau berbentuk krim yang mampu melembabkan kulit,” jelasnya.

Tidur 8 jam dalam 1 hari
Profesor Jim Horne dari Loughborough University’s Sleep Research Centre menjelaskan, pentingnya membagi-bagi jam tidur ketimbang tidur 8 jam penuh saat malam hari.

“Salah jika ada persepsi yang mengatakan terbangun di malam hari mengganggu kualitas tidur. Sebenarnya, tidur selama 8 jam penuh dapat membuat Anda merasa lebih lelah. Padahal dengan tidur siang selama 15 menit saja, sama efektifnya dengan tidur 1 jam di malam hari,” jelasnya.

“Triknya adalah tidur dua jam lebih awal di sore hari, bangun lalu makan malam dan berinteraksi dengan teman dan keluarga, dilanjutkan dengan tidur malam tiga sampai empat jam, bangun lagi untuk melakukan ibadah, lalu lanjutkan kembali tidur beberapa saat hingga subuh. Maka yang Anda dapatkan adalah 7 jam tidur dalam sehari,” papar Dr Nick.

Berkumur usai menggosok gigi
Dr Phil Stemmer, seorang ahli gigi di London mengemukakan untuk menahan keinginan Anda untuk berkumur usai menggosok gigi. Pasalnya, berkumur akan menghilangkan fluoride yang ditinggalkan pasta gigi, yang jika tidak berkumur dapat melindungi gigi beberapa jam lebih baik.

“Usai menggosok gigi, saya terbiasa tidak berkumur setidaknya setengah jam, dan saya tidak pernah membasahi sikat gigi terlebih dulu karena air dapat mengurangi khasiat pasta gigi. Ingat juga untuk tidak menggosok gigi langsung usai makan. Tunggulah hingga setengah jam baru menggosok gigi,” jelasnya.

Dr Phil menjelaskan lebih lanjut alasannya asam makanan dan gula secara sementara akan melemahkan enamel gigi, maka jika kita menggosok gigi saat itu, Anda sebenarnya sedang mengikis lapisan enamel sebelum gigi kembali mengeras.

“Sebenarnya, kebiasaan yang baik adalah menyikat gigi sebelum makan, lalu menyegarkan mulut kembali dengan berkumur dengan mouthwash tanpa alkohol sesudah makan,” tutupnya.

Menggunakan toilet duduk
Sebuah studi yang dilakukan oleh peneliti Israel yang dipublikasikan pada Digestive Diseases and Sciences mengatakan bahwa toilet jongkok lebih baik ketimbang toilet duduk, sebab dengan posisi normal seperti jongkok saat buang air kita akan lebih sedikit mengejan, dan mengurangi risiko penyakit yang menyerang usus besar.

Dr Charles Muray, konsultan pencernaan di Royal Free Hospital, London, mengatakan bagi Anda yang terbiasa menggunakan toilet duduk sebaiknya meletakkan pijakan setinggi 6 inci di bawah kaki, yang menolong kita melakukan posisi seperti berjongkok.

Bersih-bersih
Ternyata, bersih-bersih rumah dapat memperburuk kesehatan diri. Pendapat ini diungkapkan peneliti Amerika Serikat yang menganalisa 100 pekerja wanita dan pria yang memiliki tekanan lebih tinggi ketimbang mereka yang tidak bersih-bersih rumah.
Tekanan darah naik dikaitkan dengan kekhawatiran domestik seperti bagaimana menyelesaikan tanggung jawab memasak, bersih-bersih, dan belanja bulanan dengan cepat.

Tidak lupa juga penyakit asma yang terjadi saat responden menggunakan produk rumah tangga yang didiami kuman. Penelitian di Spanyol menemukan, mereka yang menggunakan cairan pembersih dan semprotan penyegar udara dalam 1 hari sepekan dapat menyebabkan asma 7 kali lebih banyak.

Bersantai habis makan
Mungkin wajar jika kita bersantai di sofa usai makan malam. Tapi ternyata, pencernaan pun ikut “santai” jika kita membiarkan kebiasaan ini terus menerus.

“Misalnya Anda makan sebelum tidur, maka tubuh akan lebih lambat mencerna makanan tadi,” sahut Claire MacEvilly, ahli gizi di Human Nutrition Research Laboratory di Cambridge University.

7 Secret Places banned to the Public!!!

1, Secretive Russian town of Mezhgorye

There is a town in Russia, called Mezhgorye, which is barred to anyone, except for those believed to work at the highly secretive Mount Yamantaw site, thought by many to be either a ultra-secret research facility, or be nuclear. Founded in 1979. The town is at the foot of the mountain, the highest in the Urals, at 5,381ft, where US satellites have recorded excavation projects, on a huge scale, though repeated enquiries about the nature of operations, at this maddeningly closely watched community, have been met by bland responses, such as it being a mine of some kind, or a repository for Russian treasures, and even as somewhere for government, in case of disaster, but nobody knows.
2. The mysterious Moscow metro2

Moscow, capital city of Russia, supposedly has a secondary, secret underground metro system, known as Metro-2, running parallel to the public Metro. Built, it is thought, during Stalin’s time, KGB codename for the project being  D-6. The existence of this phantom system has never been confirmed, nor denied, by the FSB -Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, or indeed the Moscow Metro administration themselves. Rumored to be much longer, in length, than the public Metro.  and  to consist of four lines, running between 50 and 200m below ground It connects the Kremlin with the FSB headquarters, Vnukovo-2 government airport, plus underground town Ramenki, as well as other, undisclosed locations.
3. The super secret Area 51 Groom Lake facility

Area 51, a phrase well known around the world, is a military base, Groom Lake, in the southern portion of Nevada, USA, 83 miles from Las Vegas. Found along the southern shore of Groom Lake, the large, secretive, military airfield appears to be involved in the development, and testing of experimental aircraft, as well as advanced weapons systems research.  So closely guarded is this place, and so well monitored, that it has been the subject of conspiracy theory for decades. Even the U.S. government only reluctantly admits to the existence of this place, and the fact that deadly force can, and has been used against people trying to get into the Area 51 zone, really does make you wonder
4. The ultra secretive Room 39 of North Korea

North Korea, that most oppressive of states, is infamous for Room 39, sometimes called Bureau 39, one of the most secretive of their organizations, dedicated to seeking methods of obtaining foreign currency for North Korea’s leader. Established in the late 1970s and described, by some in the west, as the lynchpin of the dynastic Kim family dealings. Room 39 is such a secretive institution that none are sure exactly what goes on there, though it is widely believed  that ten to twenty bank accounts, in Switzerland and China, are used in illegalities such as counterfeiting, money laundering, drug smuggling and illicit weapon sales. The organization has, reportedly, 120 foreign trade companies that it operates, under the direct control of the ruling family, who obviously deny any illegal activities. Room 39 is believed to be l inside a ruling Workers’ Party building in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea, but nobody knows for sure
5. The Inaccessible Ise Grand Shrine  of Japan

Japan has an amazing series of over 100 shrines, known as the Ise Grand Shrine,  the most sacred shrine in the country. Dedicated to Amaterasu, the Sun goddess, this wondrous place has existed since 4BC, and it is thought that the main shrine contains the single, most important item in Japanese imperial history, the NaikÅ« . This is the mirror, from Japanese mythology, which graced the hands of the first emperors of Japan. Demolished, purely to enable rebuilding, every 20 years, honoring Shinto ideas of death and rebirth, the shrine is barred to anyone but the priest or priestess, who has to a member of the Japanese imperial family Everyone else is kept away by very alert guards.
6. The terrifying Mount Weather Emergency operations center.

Mount Weather is not somewhere that that the US public ever really want to go to. This is the genuine article, as in the disaster films, where  some highly classified area has been prepared, to accept the lucky few destined to survive. Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center  truly is the real thing,  set up in the 1950s, during the cold war, it still operates today, as a “last hope” area, though naturally highly classified. Federal Emergency Management Agency staff, FEMA., are in charge of it, and already, when required much of US telecommunications traffic can be routed through it, so that emergency services operate well
7. The incredibly intrusive RAF Menwith Hill

The global ECHELON spy network, much employed by US and British governments, is the reason why Royal Air Force station Menwith Hill exists. Containing extensive satellite tracking ground systems, this communications intercept, and missile warning site, has been called the largest electronic monitoring station on earth. Ground station for satellites, of the US National Reconnaissance Office, serving the US National Security Agency, the station is famous for having antennae contained in highly distinctive white radomes. Believed by some to be part of the ECHELON system, reportedly created for the purpose of monitoring military and diplomatic communications, from Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc allies, during the Cold War, and these days i believed to search also for terrorist plots, drug dealing information, as well as political and diplomatic intelligence. Also believed to be involved filtering all telephone and radio communications in the western world, though not proven, this is an incredibly secretive and well guarded place that the public can never get into.
