Sleep Like a Baby – And Get These Benefits

Sleep

Do you want to feel better, get smarter and look better? Then follow this simple guide:

Rethinking truth: “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” is the dumbest quote in history

Personally I’ve not slept as much as I should in the last few weeks. I scored just 54% at the evaluation form (after the five questions) so there’s plenty of room for improvements.

    The baby looks so lovely. I am wondering how we can sleep as a baby. We have to work, we have to think about many things, so we cannot sleep as much as babies. http://vkool.com/foods-and-tips-to-stop-snoring/

    "...Instead of consuming cow milk, you should drink soy milk which is a great alternative…"

    This citation comes from that link you provided (above). Soy proteins stimulate synthesis o f IGF-1 in humans almost twice the rate that of cow milk. IGF-1 is a major player in cancer development. Thus soy is twice as bad as milk.

    Abstract
    To determine whether dietary modifications with tomato products and/or a soy supplement affected circulating levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 and other markers of cell signaling in postmenopausal women at risk for developing breast cancer. Eligible and consented postmenopausal women at high risk for developing breast cancer were enrolled in a 26-week, two-arm (tomato and soy, 10 weeks each) longitudinal dietary intervention study in which each woman served as her own control. Changes in biochemical endpoints including IGF-I, IGF-binding protein (IGFBP)-3, estradiol, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), C-peptide, and insulin were measured for each intervention arm. Carotenoid and isoflavone levels were measured to assess adherence. Significant increases in carotenoid and isoflavone levels during the tomato and soy study arms, respectively, suggested that women were adherent to both arms of the intervention. The tomato-rich diet had little effect on cell-signaling biomarkers previously associated with breast cancer risk.

    However, results of the soy intervention showed that concentrations of IGF-I and IGFBP-3 increased by 21.6 and 154.7 μmol/L, respectively (P = 0.001 for both) and SHBG decreased by 5.4 μmol/L (P < 0.001) after consumption of the soy protein supplement. Increased soy protein intake may lead to small, but significant, increases in IGF-I and IGFBP-3.

    Soy consumption also led to a significant decrease in SHBG, which has been hypothesized to promote, rather than prevent, cancer growth.
