We are continuously looking for the next greatest thing to keep us young, fit and in the best shape. Our bodies are easily impacted by our lifestyle.

  3. Breaking a high fever could be done quickly by placing an ice-pack under your arm or near your groin. This will cool down the core of your body quickly.
  4. Antibacterial soaps do more harm than good because they help bacteria become stronger and more resistant to the germ killers.
