Exercise machines often inflate the number of calories you burn while using them, a new study shows. Here’s how to know what you really burned…

Congratulations. You just finished your workout and have reached your calorie goal. Well, maybe not…

It turns out you can’t trust most exercise machines. They often grossly overestimate how many calories you’ve burned.

Why You Should Always Ride in the Front Seat

A new crash study finds that it’s safer to ride in the front seat of the car than the back. Here’s why

It’s a myth that it’s safer to ride in the back seat of the car. A new analysis shows that in most crashes, you’re better off in the front.1

Years ago, front-seat passengers faced the danger of smashing into the dashboard or the windshield. Airbags come with their own risks, too… For instance, children aged 12 or younger should still sit in the back.2

But with today’s seatbelt and airbag technology, most risks for adults have been greatly diminished, researchers say. Airbags can now reduce deaths in the front of the car by up to 30%.3

Plus, there’s a little-reported Australian study that reveals back seat riders are actually at more risk of injury…

Never Do This Exercise Again

Stop doing this exercise now. It’s so dangerous it causes half the workout injuries in the U.S. Army.

Of course, it’s important that we all stay fit. And if you’ve ever been in a gym class, you’ve likely done this exercise hundreds of times. But if you continue with this old school drill, you may be sentencing yourself to years of chronic pain and future surgery.

Look in the mirror to self-diagnose shortages of 5 important nutrients.

If you feel lousy and suspect a vitamin deficiency, your doctor will likely give you a blood test or some other kind of expensive screening.

Here are five common facial symptoms linked to vitamin deficiencies.

If you notice that you appear paler than normal, this could indicate a vitamin B12 deficiency. Check your tongue. It should be a little bumpy. If it is totally smooth, this is another sign of B12 deficiency. Lack of this vitamin can cause fatigue and poor memory.1,2

Super Bowl Pizza Party Health Warning! Feds Issue Alert

Pizza delivery boxes contain toxic chemicals that have been banned by the FDA.

Super Bowl bashes might never be the same. It’s the biggest day of the year for pizza deliveries. Some 12.5 million were delivered for last year’s game.1
But it turns out that pizza delivery box is full of health-damaging chemicals.

Three substances commonly found in pizza cardboard containers were just banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.2,3

The three are part of a group of chemicals called perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFASs. These chemicals may lead to thyroid disease and ulcerative colitis. In pregnant women, they may cause preeclampsia. This is a potentially life-threatening high blood pressure condition. The substances remain in the body for years.

Scientists say these noxious chemicals can leech from the box into your pizza.

Each day millions of us put ourselves at risk for serious infection through a simple action.
