Caring for Your Eyes

The eyes are the light of the body. They are irreplaceable when they go bad and can only be prevented from going bad if they are properly taken care of. For those who do not have inherited bad sight conditions, they might have inflicted the pain of poor sight on themselves through poor eye care. Binocular, 20-20 vision is regarded as the standard visual acuity which translates to clear detailed vision. But this is rarely the case in both young and old, hence the need for painstaking care of the eyes. It is important to discard some of the myths...

That Herbal Concoction May Be Killing You

In most cases, herbs or botanical medicines used in diverse treatments today lack compositional, empirical formula that would have revealed in what amounts they must be taken. The makeup of this sort of medicines is such that each of the plants that contribute to the entire concoction brings its own chemicals to the mix and studies show that not all herbs can be used at all states.

Knowing Your World (Continuation)

Still on the topic: Know Your World, today’s discourse will be dwelling on climate. What’s climate? Climate is simply the average weather condition of a place taken between periods spanning at least 35 to 40 years. Picking from that, it is clear that the study of climate is not a child’s play; it involves a lot of diligent waiting. Such climatic information can be applied by agricultural experts, scientists, geographical agencies etc. And whether these climatic data are employed by those mentioned or are not, it does not rule out how our daily living is influenced by them. And...
