Are We Obsessed With Beauty?

Has out society gone too far with beauty? The other day I saw a group of clearly beautiful middle-aged women who had taken it too far in my humble opinion. One had elastically surgery done recently, I’d guess it was Botox. What used to be a gorgeous woman, was now a odd looking woman with oversized lips and no sense of emotional expression. What a shame. But it did make me wonder whether our society had taken beauty too far?

Plastic Surgery

anti agingWhat I never understood is that people put themselves through intense pain and lots of risk to look younger. I would understand it more if the results were amazing, but most of the time, people undergoing plastic surgery just look worse. It looks fake. Whether it’s a face lift or Botox, it’s noticeable and just not that attractive. But women keep doing it, and I’d love to understand why. Is it just because the fear of aging? Is it that looking young but fake is better than look old? And what ever happened to aging gracefully? There’s plenty of middle aged women out there that look great.

Many women just stick to a night cream and a healthy lifestyle to ensure they stay looking beautiful and not too old. But there are plenty of alternatives to plastic surgery and out of curiosity, I did some research of these alternatives.

Alternative Beauty Treatments

Another shocking treatment that you can actually do at home is called derma rolling. You might not believe me when I tell you, but it involves rolling a device over your face which has thousands of needles on it. These needles effectively pierce your skin and intentionally damage the top layer of skin. This encourages your skin to repair itself and promotes better, healthier looking skin. It will be more elastic and hence make you look younger. As shocking as this might sound, according to quite a few online derma roller reviews, this a anti-aging treatment actually works. It still sounds crazy to me that anyone would put themselves through this, but users say it doesn’t hurt and that it hurts, so why not?

If derma rolling is too scary for you, then the next anti-aging treatment might be better for you. From my research into the best products to look younger, I also came across some of the  best vitamin c serum reviews. Apparently, according to these reviews, a serum consisting of mostly Vitamin C can actually make your skin look much younger. Incredible! Looking at some of the more recent scientific research on Vitamin C serums, this stuff actually appears to work.

So, while some of these treatments work and come highly recommended by people using them, it does prove my point though. Our obsession with looking younger has reached new heights. I’d love to hear your feedback on this.

Do We Have A Health Crisis?

We live in an absolute beautiful word. There are so many possibilities, but let’s face it, some of us squander the gift of life. Let’s not get too political straight away, but let’s get social first. According to the CDC, 34.9% of adults are obese. That’s over one-third! That’s crazy and completely changeable. But the government doesn’t do much to change it. If this doesn’t scare you enough, here’s another fact: “Over 17% of children and adolescents are obese”. That’s almost the majority of kids that are overweight.

health crisisDespite a total cost of $147 billion in the US alone. Imagine if those resources were spend on something worthwhile. Sure, some people have medical conditions which prevents them from losing the weight. But many are lazy, and do not make any real effort to stay a healthy weight. This is just one example of how our health system is broken. So to answer the question I started with. Are we in a health crisis? We certainly are!

Another major issue we encounter which gets no recognition is mental health. People are struggling from depression, anxiety and other mental conditions, which are not taken seriously. Sure, many of it might not be real. But plenty of people are truly suffering. Can’t we find a way to allocate resources to help people, instead of dismissing there issues? What’s more, if we used the resources to prevent such conditions, whether it’s mental health or obesity, we could really make a difference. Right now, we are focusing on issues when it’s too late. Let’s spend some of that money on preventing the issues that plague this nation.

There’s less serious issues as well. Take for example the summer. It’s one of the hottest summers this decade. But people literally don’t apply sunscreen. It’s insane! People get burned, despite everyone knowing that sunscreen is an essential part of going outside in the summer. But the government doesn’t reward this behavior, we just have to solve it ourselves. There are literally websites out there that explain how to use coconut oil for sunburn relief. Why can’t we solve other health issues in the same way? You caused the problem, you solve it.

In fact talking about this aforementioned website, wouldn’t it make sense to point people to so that they can find natural solution to their problems. It would be better, cheaper and way more conductive to society than handing out money to people for things they brought on themselves.

While all this might sound harsh. We understand some people in society need help. We’re all for that. But lots of people are taking our society’s goodwill for granted and abusing this system which protects the less fortunate. So my advice, let’s become more self-sufficient. Let’s only help those who are helping themselves. Or those who need help and literally cannot do anything for themselves.

What’s Next For The Global Economy?

market crashUrgent action is required to stop a catastrophic collapse of the global economy according to some of the leading billionaire investors. Can you blame them? We’ve had a prolonged period of growth on the markets with no real substance. We’ve seen the stock markets boosted by printed money. Let me repeat that. The stock market isn’t going up because the economy is doing well, but it’s going up because governments are buying bonds and stocks to give the illusion that everything is OK. If that’s not bad enough, now we have a Brexit which can destabilize the entire European economy. There’s a good chance the growth of the last few years will be derailed soon, with the effect of an economic collapse much worse than the one we saw in 2008 due to the property crash.

So who’s the main billionaire who’s claiming that the end is near? Right now, billionaire investor George Soros claims that China and now the Brexit can both be disastrous to the stock market. Can you blame him? We agree hardheartedly with him, and we wish the government stop this incredibly ridiculous behavior of keeping interest rates artificially low. Here’s the personal view of the man himself:

This is scary! Don’t forget that George Soros made his fortune betting against the UK economy before. He might do it again.

He’s not alone either. Goldman Sachs, according to Forbes is claiming that the UK will enter a recession in 2017. We don’t think this will be limited to the UK, and global contagion is much more likely. Of course, following the news closely this week, there is a good chance Brexit won’t happen now. The British people have buyer’s remorse and as we said in our last article, they have been blatantly lied to by politicians. But even this won’t be enough to stop the inevitable crash we’ve been waiting for. The economy is not stable, the stock market is at a level that cannot be explained by facts. So a crash is coming. You need to prepare for this sooner than later. We don’t know when. We don’t know why. But we do know it will happen.

Urgent Action Needed For Health

With the Brexit happening this week, the UK is in big trouble. As a country, Great Britain was promised the world upon leaving the European Union, but nothing has been received so far.

Brexit and the NHS

Take for example, Nigel Farage. This British politician has recently admitted that the claims he has made in respect of the NHS were a mistake. What a joke? This borders political fraud. This party has publicly declared to the UK public that a Brexit would result in increased government spending towards the NHS (the UK health service). This won’t happen. This is  a prime example of how deceitful government can be. Don’t believe us? Check this video out with an interview which exposed this fraud:

We literally don’t even have any words for this! But it doesn’t stop here.

Brexit Consequences For Health

Apart from the UK health service, many other services will be affected. Do you buy anything from outside of the UK as a British citizen? If so, being outside of the EU will mean that anything will be more expensive. If you buy medicine from outside of the UK, then apart from losing extra funding from the NHS, your medicine will become more expensive. We can’t believe so many people voted for Brexit, since leaving the UK is disastrous for the UK people.

We’d love to hear your comments on this topic, so please comment below so we can hear from you. Do you agree with our view or disagree?

BREXIT-1Brexit General Consequences

Apart from health, other sectors will be impacted negatively. The pound has already crashed. The stock markets are suffering. If this isn’t bad enough, the property market is about to crash as well. It’s all going down, and independence isn’t what we were promised it would be. In fact, after all this, there is talk about staying in the EU. Whatever happens, the damage has already been done. Why did the UK population vote for such a disastrous leadership and why did they make such a bad choice in terms of the future of our country?
