What is the recommended daily sodium intake?

User Avatar
The American Heart Association recommends that for every 1,000 Calories of food consumed, the sodium intake should be 1,000 mg and should not exceed the 3,000 mg limit. Note that most of this sodium doesn't come from adding salt to food, but rather from the sodium levels in highly processed foods we eat. There may be more sodium in less salty-tasting food; ex., high sodium salad dressings versus salty french fries. Human's daily sodium intake should be around 2,400 milligrams. However, this recommendation may vary depending on a person's size, and medical conditions.

How many kilograms is 150 pounds?

User Avatar
First take the weight in pounds and multiply by 453.59. The resulting number is the weight in grams. To convert grams to kilograms, simply divide by 1000. Or, an easier option is to take the weight given in pounds and multiply by 0.45359. In this case the answer is 68.03 kilograms. 150 pounds = 68.03886 kg (to 5 dp) 150 pounds = 68.04 kilograms. 150 pounds is equal to 68.0388555 Kilograms. 1 Pound = 0.45359237 Kilograms 150 Pounds * 0.45359237 Kilograms = 68.0388555 Kilograms.

How does using steroids lead to strokes and heart attacks?

User Avatar
What do steroids do? They increase your muscle strength and size. What is your? a muscle. What does steroids do to your body? Makes it larger increasing the stress on you're heart to pump the blood. That's why most over sized people die of some kind of heart disease. The heart can only take so much the bigger you are the harder your heart has to work. Not too mention also that steroids also messes with your hormone level. Meaning your hair and teeth will die and fallout prematurely. Oh, yeah if you're a guy your balls will shrink, if you're a girl get use to that black thick hair that you had little of before and now have to shave weekly or daily. They aren't worth it you risk all that for what a few muscles that are going to turn into fat anyway. If you're lazy enough to do put the work in to get that big in the first place, you're probably just as lazy to keep it in place.

Does eating peanuts aggravate arthritis?

User Avatar
Yes, peanuts and peanut butter can aggravate arthritis. I was a peanut butter eater all my life, I am now 58. I would have starved to death if nobody had invented peanut butter, it was my main diet many days. Now I cannot eat peanut butter, it aggravates my arthritis. I tried almond butter and it was a lot worst than peanut butter. I find cashews bad too.

Asked in Jazz Music, Aging and Life Extension

What is the life expectancy of a jazz musician?

User Avatar
The life expectancy of a jazz musician is no more or less than any other musician unless he has underlying health concerns. I don't know the life expectancy of musicians who play other genres of music but the life expectancy of a jazz musician has been calculated to be only 37 years old. It may be hard to believe but it's true. Of course, many live to a ripe old age but, nevertheless, so many have died young that even with the less stressful lifestyles that today's jazz musicians have compared, say, to those of the 1950's and earlier that it will be a while before this average rises appreciably.
Asked in Eyes, Aging and Life Extension

What is the function of pupil on human eye?

User Avatar
The pupil serves two important functions - to control the illumination in the eye, and to improve the optical quality of the image on the retina. The first function is obvious - the smaller the hole, the less light gets in. It therefore serves to regulate the light level within the retina. The second function is very important because as the pupil gets larger, more aberrations are created and the image on the retina gets "messier". People with no iris (aniridia) have very poor visual acuity because the eye can't get a sharp image, both because there is to much light (over-saturation) and because there are lots of optical aberrations present. One final function of the pupil is to increase depth of focus, similar to an aperture stop on a camera. This basically increases the range (distance) over which things appear sharp.

How do you soften gray hair?

User Avatar
Deep condition your hair atleast twice a week. Use styling products with an oil base, which penetrates the hair, helping to smooth it out Apply olive oil to your hair before washing it and massage your head to stimulate the follicles. (this also helps with proper blood flow to the brain).

What is a submissive attitude?

User Avatar
if you're submissive, you do what your told with no question and can come across as being scared of the person you are being submissive to. Submissive posture is different to dominant. You would stand smaller and would probably look down /fidget a bot. Being submissive can be mis-read as being scared, but it's kinda being really obedient and trusting. A submissive dog would do as it's told and would not jump up or bark at the person, it would be calm/submissive :)

Is there life after seventy?

User Avatar
Very much so! God may give us 'three score years and ten' but he also gives us the time we have to make the most of life. Jesus said 'I come to give you life and life in is fullness', so never feel that you are too old for anything. Don't forget, Picasso did his best paintings in his 80s, John Glenn went into space in his 70s. A friend of mine taught himself to play the church organ (including pedals!) having never touched a note before, when he was 75 and now he plays Bach preludes and fugues at the wonderful age of 92 years young. So after 70 you can do anything if you put your mind to it.

What do you do for dead nerves in your legs?

User Avatar
Unless your leg has had a trauma injury (a break or a cut) that has damaged the derve in the leg itself, nerve problems in the legs are usually caused by problems in the lower back (spine). You need to go and see a qualified medical practitioner (a doctor) and get yourself checked out.

Why can't dead people be revived?

User Avatar
Technically, dead people can be revived, if they've been dead for only a few minutes. This is called clinical death, and it can be reversed. But for people who've been dead for over a week, then probably not. First of all, when people are dead, they immediately start to rot. They will start disintegrating to smaller forms. When that happens, a horrible smell will start to rise, then eventually be disintegrated to the point they they are only skeletons. If someone dead has been left in the open for a week, then it will be a skeleton in only about that long. This is the main reason why someone dead can't be revived. If someone is brain-dead, but is not clinically dead, then you can't revive that person as well, because their brain is not functioning/responding.
