Most small business owners know how hard it is to balance the demands of their business with their personal life, especially with regard to finding time for exercise and other health matters. This posting is about two health related articles that once again show how important it is to really strive to reach that balance.
The first article is on the importance of heart health and provides 7 essential factors for heart health. Some of them are obvious, such as getting more exercise on a regular basis, but it also provides some other factors that are also very important for heart health. The article goes on to give some general tips to reach some of health goals and also includes some links to other resources.
The second article is aimed more at men and presents some surprising results. The article describes how men may be able to reduce their cancer and heart disease risks by donating blood on a regular basis. It seems that men produce too much iron and excessive iron is one risk factor for both cancer and heart disease. It applies to women in one sense as well since women can have excessive iron as well and provides some ways to reduce iron levels. Regular blood donation has a few things going for it, you are providing something life giving to others and you get your blood pressure checked on a regular basis for free. Something to think about anyway.
