(Science Daily) Last year the UK government reclassified cannabis from a class C to a class B drug, partly out of concerns that cannabis, especially the more potent varieties, may increase the risk of schizophrenia in young people. But the evidence for the relationship between cannabis and schizophrenia or psychosis remains controversial. A new study has determined that it may be necessary to stop thousands of cannabis users in order to prevent a single case of schizophrenia.
The latest scientific studies show that the things most important for maintaining good health are: Proper diet, frequent exercise, reducing stress, not smoking, limiting alcohol intake, getting enough sleep, staying mentally engaged, and frequent, meaningful social contact.
The trouble is that most of us often fail to do the things we know are good for us, or continue to do what we know is bad for us.
But we're more likely to do the right things with the support of others.
The purpose of this community is to provide a platform for people who want to get healthy or maintain their health. We believe that we can help ourselves and each other by contributing our own personal experiences, especially how we overcame resistance or difficulties, to maintaining a healthy lifestyle--where possible without spending a lot of money.
There's no charge to participate. Help us grow the community, and we will be able to negotiate group rates and group prices for products and services to help us achieve our health objectives.
