IF diabetes, hypertension, and other illnesses are prominent in my family, does this mean I am automatically going to have it?
While some illnesses and disorders can not be prevented, there are many things you can do to combat many health issues and live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Diet and exercise are the two single most important things you can do to ensure good health. Fads and trends do not count as part of a healthy diet, but rather learning your body and eating a balanced and proportional meal is key to the best you. Exercise is another key component to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
What is a hiccup?
A hiccup comes from an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm, producing a sudden intake of air. The glottis (the vocal apparatus of the larynx) slams shut at the same time, so that the column of air strikes the closed glottis to produce the characteristic, onomatopoeic noise.
Do hot drinks cool you down?
Yes. They make your body think you are hotter than you really are so you sweat more and that leads to heat loss.
