Things we do everyday that slowly KILLS.

Using Computer
Using a computer can be damaging to your health. The screen brightness can cause eye strain and headaches. Give some distance while using or set your screen brightness to less that 30%. Some computers also contain toxins that cause neurological damage as well.

Using Air Conditioner

For many people an air-conditioned home, car or workplace is a must. Although air conditioning provides both health and comfort benefits, there is evidence pointing to some potentially serious health risks including overexposure to cold air and exposure to toxic pollutants such as mod. Sudden changes in temperature and humidity affect the respiratory system. Keep room temperature between 21º and 25º C. Try fresh air sometimes.

Showering Everyday
Showering every day with hot water and a scrubbing apparatus wears away your skin’s lipids which help keep your skin’s moisture. This also causes you to age fast. Some people can’t do without hot bath. This is bad for your skin. Use moisturising soap and avoid using hard sponge too often.

Drying Hair
I know this may be difficult for most women (some men too). Blow drying your hair causes more harm than good. Heat from the dryer causes the hydrogen bonds in your hair to deteriorate which
makes your hair susceptible to falling out. It also affects the brain cells which can make you act abnormal sometimes.

Popcorn Damage Teeth
For the movie freaks and late night watch. Popcorn can get stuck in your teeth and cause infections. Also, biting down on a kernel can crack your teeth if you susceptible to that kind of damage.  Try the salty popcorn instead.

Jogging is a form of exercise that is highly recommended worldwide but excessive Jogging increases your risk of arthritis, especially in your knees where most of the damage is felt. Walk sometimes and visit the doctor for a proper check-up especially when you start feeling pains.

Sitting in Office
Your risk of heart disease increases 64% if you sit at your desk for 6+ hours a day. This also causes severe back ache if you don’t maintain good sitting posture. Take a short walk after sitting for more than 2 hours.

Wearing Socks in Bed
Wearing socks in bed prevents the gaseous exchange of your body’s cells which not only damages your skin cells, but your brain cells as well.

Microwave Food
Microwave is the fastest way to get our food warm.  Then it is important to realize that food cooked in a microwave oven does become "radioactive". The microwave energy remains in the cavity or the food after the microwave oven is switched off. Give the food time to cool and always cover the food while microwaving.

Watching TV
Watching TV for more than 2 hours increases your risk of heart diseases. Study shows that those who watch TV and smoke are at greater risk. Sitting that long affects your circulation. Try stretching or taking a walk for a minute every 1 hour.
