Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

You don’t have to have risk factors to have a heart attack, so be aware of symptoms!

What Happens When You Eat Eggs Every Day

Eggs have a bad reputation as cholesterol-laded bombs that will explode your heart if you eat them regularly. Maybe that’s overstating it a little, but not much. Despite a strong nutritional profile and incredible versatility, some folks are still skipping out on eggs or even worse (in our opinion), eating tasteless egg white-only omelets.


We are here to tell you that you don’t have to avoid eggs. Yes, they do contain cholesterol, but in recent years we have come to understand that when you eat cholesterol it is broken down in the digestive system and does not land in your arteries as whole molecules.

Instead, it is saturated fat that tends to raise overall cholesterol levels. There has been no link whatsoever found between eating eggs and high cholesterol or heart disease.

Let’s look at some reasons why you should be embracing daily egg consumption. The evidence is so compelling that you might even want to raise some backyard chickens and get those eggs straight from the source.

7 Exercises of The Japanese Korugi Massage That Can Help You Look 7 Years Younger

With age, the skin of the face becomes saggy and it’s not just because the facial muscles weaken and the production of collagen and elastin decreases. There is one more reason that causes aging — the displacement of facial bones. As a result, the face oval becomes more blurred, and the cheeks and the chin become saggy.

However, a Japanese man named Chiyo Hayashi did a great job at trying to resolve this problem. He developed a special technique for massaging the face that helps restore the initial position of the skull’s bones and improve microcirculation in facial tissues. This system was given the name Korugi.

Get a mirror and massage oil before you start the procedure. It will help you keep track of whether you’re performing the movements correctly, as well as avoid extra friction. Also, your skin sho…
