2. When this area becomes less sensitive, roll across the area to help the muscle relax.

Panel chair Professor Sir Michael Marmot said: "This report shows that by making relatively straightforward changes, we could significantly reduce the number of cancer cases around the world."

According to The Center for Science in the public interest (CSPI), a US organization that campaigns for food safety, many additives should be avoided on health grounds.

Pedometers are a great way to track how much you walk each day. Many smartphones now offer this technology in their health apps.

There are countless books and programs on walking with the use of pedometers. The 10,000 Steps A Day is a great program to get people moving. One should start by wearing a pedometer for a week to find out how many steps they average. It is recommended that small incremental increases each week by about 500 steps/day will get one to the goal of 10,000 Steps...
