The Pharmaceutical Hat-trick

Marijuana is an example of a gateway drug, because it encourages the use of other drugs in the future. Which may or may not be true; but if that’s the case, you could make the same argument for statins. The only difference being, the statins come from the trusted guy in the lab coat, while…

How Poor Sleep Makes You Fat & Sick

Sleep is of utmost importance to your body composition, because it can positively or negatively affect your hormonal profile.
