“Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death.”
Everyone knows or at least should know that to recover from an injury, the doctor usually orders you to get some R & R (in this case it is Rest & Rehab, as in this case you are definitely not relaxing but quite the opposite). I understand that during this rough patch you are restricted physically from your daily routines due to this blasphemous injury. Emotions might be high with frustrations and high contempt. But where most do not realize, there is a need for you to change your lifestyle – at least temporarily to alleviate the pain (physically and emotionally) that comes from an injury. Continue reading

Last week we posted Part 1 of my interview with the Germ Guy, Jason A. Tetro (in picture to right). If you haven’t participated with our poll, please do today. At the time of this posting, it looks like the majority of people wash their hands at least 4 or more times per day. Like mentioned in Part 1, try to wash your hands more per day (as close to 8 to 12 times per day as possible). Below is the rest of the interview.
TJ (HealthyMenToday): So I have been asking you about washing hands and this phenomenon that does not get done enough times. So we need to practice people. Yes I am talking about practice..practice.. So let me take a step back and talk about hygiene as a whole.
I feel like preserving health is one of the definitions of hygiene – why is this not associated strongly to this like exercise is to maintain health?

Last week we posted an article to try to call out awareness to washing your hands. On May 5th, the World Health Organization organized its annual call to action to Save Lives: Clean Your Hands Day. We like to push this topic further and we were able to interview one of the top experts in this area, Jason A. Tetro (in picture to right), who as you may already know if you follow our Editor-in-Chief, @SonnyPatel, came across my post and “tweeted” to Sonny about it.
Jason A. Tetro has been in the scientific community for nearly 25 years. He has worked on diagnostic technologies and has expertise in the food, water and bloodborne fields. He is currently Coordinator for the Emerging Pathogen Research Centre (EPRC) and the Centre for Research on Environmental Microbiology (CREM) both housed at the University of Ottawa. Here, he works to develop novel methods to identify and mitigate infectious disease risks. Jason is also known as the “Germ Guy” where he promotes health and hygiene in the public. He is internationally recognized as an expert in germs, their spread and how to prevent illness.
After getting myself further educated on this subject and interviewing him, I must say, I am never going to take washing my hands for granted anymore.
I enjoyed interviewing Jason so much that I split his interview into two parts. Below is part one of the interview. Enjoy.

With the historical news of the death of Osama bin Laden announced last Sunday, I want to first start this blog with a moment of thanks to the unknown men and women who sacrificed their well-being in order to protect the world from global terrorism.
Terrorism goes beyond borders similar to diseases and bacteria. Today’s post is about highlighting a new research study about how soap dispenser may be another source where terrorizing bacteria can contaminate our hands and passed to secondary surfaces – even after we thoroughly washed our hands.
Unlike other sites, HMT will not shy away from passionate individuals, especially those who like to contribute regularly. No matter the background, spirited people use this proverbial “everlasting fuel” that can ignite any topic and ideas. I was fortunate to meet my two new writers, Mr. Derek Smith and Mr. TJ Williams, whose backgrounds consist something not traditional to men’s health blogging…the business world – to be specific financial investment and corporate growth strategy.
We live in a world today where almost everything affects our health. Newly elected government officials and the politics of legislation are impactful in most countries but especially in the United States and in California specifically. For this, HMT welcomes the addition of a hard-working man covering the scene, Mr. Ankur Patel, from Los Angeles.
