Roughly, about 6% of the world’s population is vegetarian, a trend that is growing. Yet study after study shows that vegetarians are less healthy than their non-vegetarians peers. Why is this so? Surely a diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables should make you healthier, not less healthy, so what’s going on?

In the light of extraordinary new research it is becoming apparent that most vegetarians are in fact less healthy than their non-vegetarian peers. By “peers” I mean people of a similar socio-economic and cultural background. Any valid comparison between vegetarians and non-vegetarians must compare apples with apples. For example, any study that compared an affluent health-conscious vegetarian from California with an impoverished meat eater from the slums of Calcutta is not likely to be meaningful.

Recent studies are clearly showing that compared to their non-vegetarians peers, vegetarians are more at risk of diseases such as infertility, cancer, heart disease, eating disorders, mental disease, and obesity.

It’s not uncommon for us to get questions about what the best treatment for hemorrhoids is, so today we’re going to compare prescription treatments with natural treatments and discuss which one is the best option.

Those who suffer from hemorrhoids are often chronically constipated, or may have experienced changes in bowel habits as a result of aging or the hormones associated with pregnancy. Symptoms of hemorrhoids include pain, burning, and itching at the site of the hemorrhoids, a sense of needing to pass a bowel movement even when this is not the case, and bright red blood in the stool.

There’s a wide range of different treatments that are out there. The most common way that people treat hemorrhoids is by using a topical cream that can be purchased over the counter.

Taking an online pharmacy technician training course is a great option that allows people to start a new career while still taking care of other commitments. However, some people find that they have difficulty learning outside of a traditional classroom setting. Anyone can be successful in an online pharmacy training course if they keep a few simple tips in mind.

Many students like online courses because they have the freedom to complete their classwork on their own time. This means that they can work their usual schedules or care for their children when they normally would without having to adjust things.

Most people have Internet access at home, but it does go out from time to time and professors will typically not accept that as an excuse for late work. In addition to a home connection, keep a backup in mind for emergencies, such as a local coffee shop with free Wi-Fi.
