Some people think that joining the gym is necessary for getting into shape. And they spend lots of money just for this purpose. But research ot the Stanford University shows that $10 is all that is required for staying fit. $10 gets you a simple device known as the pedometer. It basially measures the number of steps you take. It is useful in calculating the amount of distance you covered during jogging. So why wait? Get yourself a pair of good shoes and a pedometer and start jogging. You will start to see all that fat melt away and you will stay fit too.
Love that kick you get when you drink those energy drinks? Well, research indicates that the boost may pose a health risk to those who have high blood pressure or other cardiovascular diseases. These drinks contain lots of caffeine and also an amino acid taurine which is found to increase heart rate. Youngsters often take a lot of these to enable them to party and stay awake all night. When taken with alcohol, it increases the risk for arrhythmia (disordered rhythm for heart beat) which can be fatal.
