Three Proven Ways to Lose That Stubborn Belly Fat

(NaturalNews) Everyone knows that being overweight can increase our risk of serious health problems. However, most people don't realize that not all fat distribution is equal. Accumulating fat under our arms and thighs, for instance, is more of a cosmetic concern than a cause for significant medical alarm. Yes, we are better off without it and should endeavor to remove it, but fat in these areas is more likely to make us feel bloated rather than send us to the emergency room in the immediate future.

Do Your Genes Have The Final Word On Your Health?

(NaturalNews) We have learned a lot over the years when it comes to genetics and how they affect our health. The previous dogma that still holds strong is that we have but little opportunity to express our genes in a different way, so we are bound to our history and will suffer the consequences if we are genetically inferior.

However, recent research is showing that genetics play a much smaller factor in our health than previously believed and are simply a predisposition to particular illnesses, not our fate.
