Swedish Scientists Discover How To Help Men Live Longer And Healthier Lives? Wait ‘Til WOMEN Hear About This!

Also This Month: Your Baby – What one Doctor says reduces the risk of SIDS to almost ZERO, an overlooked cause of insomnia, and what’s harming police officers’ health and why it is probably affecting YOU TOO!

Lauderdale – If you are a man – and want a simple (well, kinda) way to live longer…or…if you’re a woman who wants to know YOUR role in a man’s longevity, then you are going to find this very interesting.

But first, here’s a little question.  If a man is given the choice between brains and beauty – which do you think he will choose?

Do we really have to debate this?  Sure, not everyone places the same importance on beauty.  But it doesn’t take much to look around and see what’s going on in Hollywood, etc.

Looks are important.  And not just for women.  In fact, there is a study that shows attractive people make more money for the same jobs than unattractive people.

This held true for both men and women – and in all kinds of jobs.  Good looking doctors and lawyers make more than not so good looking doctors and lawyers.

Should it be this way?  No.  But…

It Is What It Is!

And, there is NOTHING anyone can do about it.  So…life goes on…

Now, about this “how men can live longer” thing.  It’s really quite simple.

According to an October 18, 2009 article in The Sunday Times, Swedish scientists have discovered men probably should be paying more attention to the brains of the women they marry…than their bodies.

This is because scientists found, according to the article, “that long life and good health have nothing to do with a man’s education and everything to do with his wife’s.  Men married to smart women live longer – simple.”

It’s believed the key is a woman’s ability to process information about healthy lifestyles and passing it on to her spouse.

In other words, smarter women tend to ban their husbands from eating 2 buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken and A Big Mac as a nightly bedtime snack.

Moderate exercise is usually a topic of frequent discussion – until the man knows what’s best for him and does what he’s told!

So, at least according to this article, a man’s future is clear:  IF you want to live a long, healthy life…it’s…

Brains Over Beauty!

Now for important information to consider if you have an infant or are planning on having a child someday.

Dr. Jay Gordon, MD, FAAP, IBCLC, is the author of two books:  (1) Good Nights: The Happy Parents’ Guide to the Family Bed (and a Good Night’s Sleep) and (2) Listening to Your Baby.

He has 23 years of pediatric experience and was the first male to become a certified lactation consultant.

According to Dr. Gordon, “The official position jointly proposed by the [Consumer Product Safety Commission] and the crib manufacturers’ lobbyists will cost many babies their lives.”

He goes on to explain, “Babies sleeping on a safe surface with sober, non-smoking parents respond to their parents, and the parents respond to them. The chance of SIDS occurring in this situation is as close to zero as we can measure. For better or worse, most babies have never sneezed in their parents’ beds without their parents knowing it. How could they possibly stop breathing without our immediately being aware of the problem and quickly stimulating them back to a regular, safe respiratory pattern?”

What’s more, Dr. Gordon says babies in a crib in a separate room from their parents will breastfeed less and be more susceptible to infections – including life-threatening ones.

Dr. Gordon states the best possible surveillance and safety system for your baby is for him or her to sleep in the same bed with you.

What about a baby being suffocated when sleeping in the same bed as the parents?

According to the article by Dr. Gordon, James McKenna, Director of the University of Notre Dame’s Mother-Baby Sleep Laboratory, says no.

His research shows no sleep arrangement is 100% safe but many more children have died from suffocation in cribs than in beds with their parents.

And here’s something you may find shocking:  Dr. Gordon says that in 23 years of pediatric experience, he has never had a case of SIDS in his practice.

In Dr. Gordon’s own words, Vitally, all of the families I have cared for sleep in the same bed with their babies for either the entire night or the major part of it. These families succeed at breastfeeding and succeed at raising babies and children with fewer episodes of ear infection, pneumonia, and other illnesses than they would be expected to have, according to medical texts.

Newborn babies breathe in irregular rhythms and even stop breathing for a few seconds at a time. To put it simply, they are not designed to sleep alone.”

This newsletter is not agreeing or disagreeing with Dr. Gordon.  The purpose of this article is to bring up important issues you may want to look into so you can make an informed decision.
