This graphic brilliantly displays the effects of hearing loss and how to cope with it.

 

The graphic describes the four main ways people lose their ears; through listening to loud music, spending too much time in an industrial work place with power drills and the like, being exposed to the sounds of a racetrack, and being exposed to the sounds of guns firing for long periods of time.

 

So, how do you know if your ears are being damaged? Well, if someone is standing three feet away from you, but you cannot hear the words coming out of their mouth, then odds are that you are probably in a situation where the noise level is dangerous.

 

And if you are in a situation like this, you should probably extricate yourself immediately because, as the graphic reveals, once your inner ear hair cells are gone, they don’t come back.

 

Over 50 million Americans suffer from a disease called Tinnitus, which is a non-stop ringing in the ears that results from prolonged exposure to loud sounds.

Heart Disease Basics

February is heart disease awareness month.

The leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, heart disease kills more people each year than all cancers combined.

And it is a major cause of disability.

 

The most common heart disease in the United States, coronary heart disease (CHD) is the narrowing of small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. It typically results from the build up of plaque in coronary arteries and often appears as a heart attack.

 

In 2010, approximately 785,000 Americans had a new heart attack; around 470,000 had a recurrent attack. While some heart attacks are strong and intense, most start slowly with mild pain or discomfort. Typically, the person having the heart attack is not sure what’s wrong and often waits too long to get help.

 

Learn the Basics of Heart Disease.

Signs of a heart attack include these:

How Does Brown Fat Benefit Your Weight Management Goals?

How Does Brown Fat Benefit Your Weight Management Goals? | Heal Or Die: Fitness & Exercise | Scoop.it

By Dr Mercola - http://bit.ly/yv3aVV 

 

Brown fat is a heat-generating type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it, acting more like muscle than fat and may help you avoid obesity.

 

Research has shown that brown fat can be activated to burn more fat by cooling your body
Studies have also shown that animals convert white fat into brown fat simply by exercising.

The conversion is triggered by an enzyme called irisin, which is released by the muscles during exercise. It’s still unclear whether this phenomenon is true for humans as well, but humans do have the same protein

 

According to Tim Ferriss, author of The Four-Hour Body, you may be able to increase your fat burning potential by as much as 300 percent simply by adding ice therapy to your dieting strategy.

 

You can do this by placing an ice pack on your upper back and upper chest for 30 minutes a day; drinking about 500 ml of ice water each morning; taking ice cold showers; and/or immersing yourself in an ice bath three times a week

Multitasking: This Is Your Brain On Media - #Infographic - @rtkrum @Rasmussen

Multitasking: This Is Your Brain On Media -  #Infographic  -  @rtkrum @Rasmussen | Heal Or Die: Fitness & Exercise | Scoop.it

From Rasmussen College, Multitasking: http://bit.ly/h791GG 

 

This Is Your Brain On Media is a cool Infographic design that looks at some of the research behind multitasking.

 

New reports find that multi-taskers are “lousy at everything that’s necessary for multi-tasking.” Considering the amount of time people spend with around-the-clock access to TV, the Internet and mobile devices, it’s not surprising.This infographic looks at the causes and effects of multi-tasking.

 

From a design perspective, I like the clean look with a simple color palate that is easy on the eyes. The statistics in the Media Addiction section could have been visualized to make them easier to comprehend. Without visualizations, this section feel less important compared to the rest of the data.

 

I love the brain diagrams. I’m sure there are hundreds of pages of reports from this research, but this simple visual tells the story quickly to the reader. The design is missing the URL to the original landing page, a copyright (or Creative Commons) statement and listing the designer.
