Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity
While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.

Mind over Cancer?
The clinical term for male hormone therapy is the rather odious sounding Androgen Suppression or Deprivation Therapy.
An androgen is a hormone, such as testosterone, found in both the male and female population.
And hormones are identified as cancer promoters.
So it makes sense to medicate against them - if, of course, levels of testosterone are found to be high in the patient.
Now most patients diagnosed with protrate cancer are over 65 and in general would have low levels of testosterone. It is generally well known that total testosterone levels fall dramatically from the age of 44.
So why are toxic male hormone therapy drugs administered to patients whose testosterone levels will have dropped significantly, when a simple blood test will give a more precise answer?

And nobody tells you - you have to find this all out for yourself.
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a common treatment for prostate cancer, which lowers testosterone. A recent analysis has found substantial evidence linking ADT to dementia.
A previous study done by researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that men who received ADT may be at an increased risk for dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, compared with men who were not treated with the therapy.
