Q. What are the benefits of childhood vaccines?

Oh vaccine causes autism? Then how about childhood vaccines? What are the benefits of childhood vaccines?
AIt is just a thought/feel/rumor. Don’t worry about people talk. But it is important to remember, vaccines protect and save lives. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, vaccines are the single-most powerful, cost-effective public health intervention ever developed. Because of the availability of vaccines, few children in the United States are harmed by measles, polio, tetanus or other serious vaccine-preventable diseases. If parents stopped getting vaccines for their children the number of cases of these diseases will increase and so will the number of serious health problems and deaths.

Q. What benefits does yoga have on nutritional disorder?

I've heard yoga can help "organize" the daily nutrition and the metabolism? Is it true? Does anyone know how it does it?? Unfortunately I deal with nutrition issues all day long and would love to find something to make it go away...
AI am not sure I know of any relation between yoga and organizing daily nutrition.. Yoga is a very good physical activity for back problems, muscle pain and flexibility, and it does make you burn some calories via using your muscles, however it is not an aerobic physical activity and it does not help burn fat like running, riding a bike or swimming.

Q. Can diet change do some benefit?

I am getting sick of my husband these days, he is gaining on his snoring and I worry about my sleepless nights and the stress it’s giving to me...…he just gets anger with me when I criticize about his snoring …..Can diet change do some benefit?
AIf your hubby is not obese then I suggest you to keep him away from drinking or consuming any dairy products or having big meal just before his sleep as it causes mucus build up in the throat and the lungs. Going to bed with such a build up will cause him to snore and a full stomach will push on the diaphragm and this limit breathing.
