30 Health Holidays You Never Knew Existed #Infographic #HealthHolidays

Unfortunately, health risks and concerns are a part of our daily lives as much as anything else. Thankfully, we have the wonderful healthcare professionals to thank for making our problems seemingly go away with just a few visits. Without Doctors, Nurses, CNAs, Physical therapist, and many many others and their dedication to helping others feel better, we would be in a world of trouble.

With that said, I bet you didn’t know that there are special days, weeks, and months devoted to celebrating these individuals. The infographic below will go through 30 health observances that have gone unnoticed until now. For example, go say thank you to a Doctor on National Doctors Day March 30th. Or go to your local pharmacy in October and say thanks because that’s American Pharmacists’ Month.

If you have been touched by one or a few of these individuals, take note of their holiday and make them feel extra special, because they are.

15 Ways You’re Damaging Your Eyesight and How to Avoid Them #Infographic #Eyesight

Did you know that some countries require individuals to have a 20/20 vision to get a driver’s license? Bet you didn’t also know that some jobs require their employees to have perfect vision.

Having a 20/20 vision is not something that people appreciate every day. With the fast-paced lifestyle and developing technology today, people tend to abuse their eyes such that they are already causing damage to their vision without even knowing it. Even the use of corrective lenses or prescribed eyeglasses wouldn’t bring back the perfect eyesight you’d wish to have—at all.

Having undamaged eyesight lets you enjoy the simple things in life, and being vigilant enough is the best way to achieve this. As they say, prevention is still better than cure. Therefore, one must value the gift of perfect eyesight before it’s too late.

To help you determine which habits are bad for your eyes, as well as the factors you should be aware of to avoid damaging your eyesight, check out the infographic below.

As you reach the end of the article, we hope that you can see things way clearer without the hassle of having to wear glasses or lenses anymore.

Lies Of the Food Industry #Infographic #Food

Lies in the food industry are rampant, yet few consumers realize the extent of producers’ untruths. This means that when the truth does come out, it’s a huge scandal. Take the 2013 horse meat scandal – 63% of consumers said their trust in the industry was damaged as a result, which pushed increasing numbers of us to look to smaller, independent producers for our food.

Unfortunately, the horse meat scandal is only one example of many lies being spilled by food industry giants.

Did you know for instance that in the USA, if the food contains less than 0.5g of trans fat per serving it can be labeled as trans-fat free? Sure, less than 0.5g might not sound like much, but if a lot of the foods you’re eating contain these “insignificant” amounts, the total consumed can soon add up.

If the food industry was more open about what they sell – if they told us where their food comes from and were completely honest about what it contains – they may be able to begin earning consumers’ trust back.

That might sound logical to you and me, and yet, it seems they’re not listening. The horse meat scandal might now feel like a distant memory, but we shouldn’t stop paying close attention to the origin and contents of our food. Here are some of the many other lies we’re still regularly being fed.
