Heart disease is on the rise ya’ll.  According to today’s infographic, it is the number one killer in the U.S., causing 36% of deaths each year. I’m sure it is because of an accumulation of numerous things, such as:  poor dietary choices, our sedentary lifestyle, and genetics. Today’s infographic provides an excellent overview of both the causes and preventatives of heart disease.

I know it’s not favorable, but a sure way to lower your risk of heart disease is to live a healthy lifestyle that includes healthy eating and regular exercise. Even small lifestyle changes, like taking the stairs or parking at the end of the parking lot, can positively impact your health. [via]

The Very, Very Many Varieties of Beer [Infographic]

As a New Year’s resolution, my mom (who has brewed beer ever since I was a wee lad) decided it was time to brew again after 5 years of beer silence. I was also a part of this resolution because my mom can’t lift those heavy instruments any more (but mostly because I want free beer ^ ^). Not only that, but the experience of brewing itself is a magical thing. Turning all of these hops and sugars and wurt into a delicious alcoholic drink is pretty incredible. A month or so back my mom went to the local homebrew market and got ourselves an Auburn Amber brew-kit. According to this map, our Auburn brew is a type of American Ale which is a type of Pale Ale which is a type of Ale. At any rate, I’m excited to try my first home-brewed beer!

As you can see from this map, beer comes in many subtle varieties including one big divide – Lagers and Ales. I believe that what separates the lagers from the ales aside from taste alone is in the temperature at which it is fermented and conditioned. With Lagers you get your Bocks and Pilsners and Light beers. Ales are brewed at room temperature and produce your IPA’s, Stouts, and Lambic beers. Although I still haven’t tried my brew yet (I just added the sugar/alcohol content about a week ago so it’s needs to carbonate), I’m ecstatic about getting that stuff in my belly. mmmm. Next up on the brew list is an Oatmeal Stout.

America’s Fresh Food Movement

We’ve gone fresh. Well not we as in me and my friends. We try, sometimes. I try, often. But a big ol’ chunk of America has. Juice blends, organic food and fresh fruits is definitely the diet of the future. Health food stores and restaurants have been popping up at a quite rapid pace, and it is quite refreshing. You can pass up the usual milkshake for fresh juice smoothies, and top it off with an organic salad full of toppings.

Today’s infographic highlights the new food movement. Many are changing their diet for health, are heading to farmers markets for their fresh foods. What a change from the super centers full of cheap, unhealthy food ruling America. Are you behind this movement? Are you feeling fresh? [Via]

Clean Carpet Conundrum [infographic]

Today’s infographic cleverly lets us know that a visit from the RugDoctor is sometimes just as good as a visit from the Love Doctor. Whoever compiled this infographic had the audience in mind; with its visually stimulating and sharp arrangement it is more than easy on the eyes.

It’s incredibly true for most of us that our carpets are not as clean as we’d like. Although it’s probably a good thing that our carpets aren’t as clean as our toilets (we sit on them a lot more), it can be pretty scary when you are lying down on the floor and can see all of the gunk at eye-level.

63% is a pretty high figure for the amount of people not satisfied with the cleanliness of their carpet. But, with all the grime that comes in on our shoes from outside, it is extremely difficult to keep it nice and spotless.

I hope that you can be one of the people that rise above the statistics on this infographic and have a clean carpet in your home. It really is true that a clean environment can help maintain a healthy mind—especially at home. Have a great day, y’all! [via]
