I have quick tips to help you live a longer, healthier life around the clock.
First thing in the morning, get the kettle going and have some tea. Hot tea in the morning can slash your risk of kidney cancer by 15-percent. That’s according to the International Journal of Cancer, and green and black tea both work to prevent DNA damage.
After you get out of the shower, pop in your contact lenses. If you soap up while wearing your contacts you can expose your eyes to infection causing water-borne microbes. That’s according to University of Illinois researchers.
More round the clock tweaks to help you live longer and healthier: When you’re cleaning your house, skip the spray cleaners! Using household spray cleaners just once a week increases your risk of an asthma attack by 76-percent. The fix? Use cleaning wipes instead.
How about one for when you’re making dinner: Steam your broccoli. Italian researchers discovered that steaming broccoli increases the concentration of cancer fighting compounds. Boiling it actually lowers the levels.
And here’s one last health tweak to live longer and healthier when you’re ready to hit the sack: Sleep smartly! Too much sleep, or not enough of it, can kill you. A British study found that getting more than 9 hours of sleep at night, or less than 6, doubles your risk of dying an early death from ANY cause! The ideal sleep time? Between 7 and 8 hours.
