Study Finds....

I took just a minute to glance at the news on Yahoo. I was intrigued by a study that found that men who had four or more children and lived on a farm were more likely to live to 100 years of age. The study also included that the men should maintain a healthy weight, but we don't have to go there!!! Here is a quote from the article:

"Theoretically, a household full of young kids should deplete a family's resources and undermine the longevity of parents, Mitnitski said. And yet, young dads with many children lived much longer than other men in this sample."

Imagine that!!! Some of us are well on our way to a LONG life!!! I also saw on Yahoo a couple of days ago that there is speculation that chemicals from shampoo and conditioners and other hygiene products are building up in our bodies and causing health problems. TnFarmgirl would agree with that one since she has been preaching this very thing every since I have known her!!!!! You can check her web site out for chemical free soap and shampoos. Her blog is located on our side bar.

grace and peace,

Thanks for Yahoo! news; however, I have always seen that. Both my father and mother come from farming families. Those who stayed with farming were much more easy-going and flexible with whatever life brought them. Eric and I are trying to get back to that, but we still have a ways to go. Like seeing your family photo!
