Tacfit Commando Workout Review Plus Free Report

Tacfit Commando is a bodyweight workout used by the Navy SEALS, Marines, and Special Ops to build muscle without weights.

The workout takes about 20 minutes to complete and the workout is done 3 times per week.

See the links at the end of this article to get hold of a free Tacfit commando ebook, which includes an example workout program used by the Navy SEALS.

The workout was created by Scott Sonnon – USA National Police Team Coach for Sambo submission fighting-part of the Police and Fire Fighter Olympics.

Scott Sonnon wanted to create a workout that was quick to do and would improve the all round fitness of the soldier.

On the Internet, workouts that you find mainly involve weight lifting for building bulky muscles – but this type of workout does not suite a soldier.

A soldier needs to be fast and flexibile and ready for action. Big bulky body builder type muscles are therefore not suitable.

A body is needed that is lean and quick and strong and flexible. The Tacfit Commando workout program includes all the ingredients need to produce this type of body.

Tacfit Commando is a digital product so is available for instant download as soon as it has been purchased. The 119 page mission manual is the focus point of the product, including the workout program and exercise descriptions. The mission manual comes in PDF format.

But the system is so much more than the mission manual. It is an entire pack full of bonuses. The most noteable bonus feature is the video files. The video files show you exactly how each exercise is done and you literally just copy them. The video files come in MP4 format and are suitable for watching on your PC, MAC or any type of portable device.

With the videos you also get to see a workout session being taken by Scott Sonnon with the Navy SEALS so you can see the system in action.

Another great bonus is the 2 dieting ebooks. These ebooks give you details on the diets that military personnel use in order to build muscle and stay in shape. The ebooks also include some really easy to cook and tasty muscle building recipes.

In addition to the physical part of the program, the mental aspects of fitness and military life are touched on. There are videos and ebooks in the bonus pack that are used to enhance the mental concentration of the individual so that they become more sharp and alert and ready to take on anything. Like an elite warrior.

In summary, the Tacfit Commando system is suitable for people who want to build muscle without weights. People who use weight lifting as their main form of training will also gain benefit from Tacfit Commando program when they are away from the gym. Such as when you are on holiday or on a business trip.

Healthy Hispanic Living Renews Its Mission as CDC Issues Report on State of U.S. Hispanic Health


Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2015

As Healthy Hispanic Living (HHL) launches a new education and awareness campaign around the Diabetes and Obesity epidemic that is hitting the Hispanic community especially hard in this country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released results on May 5th of its first national study on the health risks and leading causes of death amongst U.S. Hispanics. The study confirms heart disease and cancer as the leading causes of death in the Hispanic population, and higher death rates from diabetes and chronic liver diseases than non-Hispanic whites. As HHL has also written about since it started publishing in 2013, Hispanics are woefully uninsured – almost three times as less as non-Hispanic whites, according to the study.

HHL was launched in response to the health and lifestyle needs of the fast-growing U.S. Hispanic community, which is on track to be the minority-majority population (54%) by 2050, and already represents almost one out of every six people. This demographic cultural shift™ is changing the business of health, from genetic research and the need for more culturally competent patient care to the critical need for Hispanics to become more educated about preventive care, treatment options, and self-advocacy in general.

“When tackling the most important health issues, we need to remember first and foremost that we don’t treat diseases, we help to care for people, said Dr. Joseph Alvarnas, Director of Medical Quality at City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. “We can create the best medications and laboratory tests imaginable, but they are of no use unless we understand how to fully engage people at a human level. It is culture that inspires people toward their highest achievements; it is only by listening carefully and engaging people at a cultural level that we can ever impact the diabetes and obesity epidemic.”

The CDC study points out the challenges that Hispanics face in gaining access to health care, especially for those lacking English skills, living in lower socio-economic conditions, or achieving lesser education levels than non-Hispanic whites. It includes a list of recommendations for health care professionals seeking to prepare for the cultural demographic shift – many of which are already being practiced at City of Hope and have been addressed on HHL – such as: accommodating cultural and language preferences with Hispanic and/or Spanish-speaking doctors and clinicians; educating Hispanic patients about their risks and preventative measures they can take; smoking cessation programs; and utilizing “promotores de salud” (Hispanic health workers situated within the community) to provide “in-culture” and language appropriate outreach and communication.

The CDC study shows that Hispanics are high risk for chronic disease, particularly high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. CVS Health has been confronting this challenge head-on with its CVS/pharmacy Project Health free screening events, which bring health care services and insurance education directly to the underserved multicultural communities where their stores are located. The last Project Health campaign, which ran from November 2014 to February 2015,offered more than 1,000 free screening events in 27 cities across the U.S., bringing the number of Hispanic consumers Project Health has served since its inception in 2006 to nearly 500,000. This translates into nearly $ 50 million worth of free medical services enabling people to know their numbers and how to take preventative action if necessary, whether they needed to start a diet and exercise program, stop smoking, talk to a pharmacist about medications or learn about insurance options, or find a doctor for follow-up consultation and examination.

“The free, comprehensive health screenings offered at our Project Health events can help identify health concerns or risk factors for participants,” said David Casey, Vice President, Workforce Strategies and Chief Diversity Officer, for CVS Health. “By addressing health care challenges, such as ethnic disparities and lack of access to preventive care, we can make a difference in the health and well-being of our customers. It’s just one more way we are living out our company’s purpose – helping people on their path to better health.”

As HHL has maintained and the CDC report confirms, how Hispanics proactively tend to their healthcare needs and that of their families will demand a strategic and highly collaborative effort amongst Hispanic patients, medical institutions, corporations and government leaders that influence the business of healthcare. As such, HHL provides a platform where Hispanic patients and families, medical institutions, retail-healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, STEM educators, financial and insurance service providers and consumer brands can come together, be actively involved in the conversation, and become part of the solution.

Consumer Credit Bureau Disputes Processes Need to be Re-Examined According to New Bridgeforce Report


Chadds Ford, PA (PRWEB) May 19, 2015

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently announced that large consumer reporting agencies are now required to submit accuracy reports that will detail consumer dispute statistics by furnisher relative to their peers. This regulatory focus coupled with increased media attention, should serve as an indicator that consumer reporting agencies and data furnishers need to transform the way in which credit bureau disputes are addressed and resolved. It is too often that disputes are handled as a back office operation with little to no direct customer interaction the risk for confusion and the potential for a negative customer experience.

In the new white paper titled “Reinventing the Credit Bureau Disputes Customer Experience,” Bridgeforce provides the framework for a customer facing approach with an emphasis on two-way communication. According to Bridgeforce, “the key to effectively handling credit bureau disputes is empowering the customer throughout the process–they should be able to understand where the dispute is within the resolution process and provide additional information and value-added feedback.” This new model would ultimately lead to a reduction in dispute volume while capitalizing on an opportunity to provide a positive customer experience during a period of uncertainty.

“In the credit reporting ecosystem, disputes are a sign of risk,” said Michelle Macartney, Managing Director of US Practice. “Data furnishers are in a position to utilize the customer facing approach to turn risk into an opportunity by better serving their customers and differentiating themselves from their peers.”

Forbes: Can Celery Protect the Brain against Inflammation?; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews a Report


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

“Infected with the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which causes shingles? The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD), which tested the formula of Novirin in two post-marketing clinical studies, recommends taking this natural antiviral supplement against the latent virus.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

A plant compound called luteolin, which is found in celery, may reduce brain inflammation, and prevent neuro-degeneration (the progressive loss of structure or function of brain cells, including death of brain cells). (1) As Dr. Saebyeol and colleagues wrote in a study, “Luteolin, a flavonoid found in high concentrations in celery and green pepper, has been shown to reduce production of proinflammatory mediators….” (See PNAS, from 2008) (2) Dr. Saebyeol is from the Integrative Immunology and Behavior Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign. “By inhibiting the action of inflammatory cytokines as earlier mentioned, luteolin can prevent the onset of degeneration in the brain.” (1)

This is important since some viruses are known to cause inflammation in the brain. One such virus is the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which causes both chickenpox and shingles. A Dr. Nagel wrote “recent studies have emerged which reveal that VZV infection of the cerebral arteries directly causes pathological vascular remodeling and stroke (VZV vasculopathy).” (See Current Neurology & Neuroscience Reports, published in advance of April 2015) (3) Dr. Nagel is from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Colorado. In other words, according to Dr. Nagel, the shingles virus directly attacks the arteries in the brain causing inflammation, which can result in brain cell death, and stroke.

Importantly, Dr. Nagel also wrote that “in the past few years, several large epidemiological studies in Taiwan, Denmark, and the U.K. demonstrated that zoster is a risk factor for stroke and that antiviral therapy may reduce this risk.” (3)

Taking an antiviral product against the shingles virus may be vitally important, since another study showed that “adults with zoster have a 30% increased risk of stroke within the following year. Although the exact incidence of stroke caused by VZV is unknown, more than 900,000 people in the United States will develop zoster annually.” (See The Journal of Immunology, from 2012) (4)

“We believe in a comprehensive, positive blend of natural and Western medicines. We believe the evidence points to the brain protecting properties of celery. We therefore recommend that VZV infected individuals make celery a part of their diet. We also recommend taking Novirin, which has a natural formula designed to target the latent VZV.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that VZV infected individuals take Novirin. This natural antiviral supplement has a formula that was designed to help the immune system target the latent form of the Varicella Zoster Virus. The formula was also shown to be effective against herpes viruses in two separate post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines.

The formula of Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD. The studies showed that the Novirin formula is effective against the herpes family of viruses. Varicella Zoster is a member of the herpes family. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with (herpes viruses) … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with (the Novirin formula).” (5) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (5)

Novirin can be ordered through the product website here: http://www.novirin.com.

Novirin is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses.

To date, Novirin is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support the product’s antiviral claims.

The CBCD believes that eating the right foods is just as important as taking a safe and effective, antiviral supplement like Novirin. “Flavonoids, plant polyphenolic compounds abundant in fruits and vegetables, exhibit a wide variety of biological effects, including … anti-inflammatory properties.” (2) The CBCD points out that the formula of Novirin also contains flavanoids such as quercetin.

The CDC notes that the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which is a herpes virus, causes both chickenpox and shingles. “After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant (inactive) in the body. For reasons that are not fully known, the virus can reactivate years later, causing shingles.” (6) Additionally, the CDC adds that “almost 1 out of every 3 people in the United States will develop shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, in their lifetime. There are an estimated 1 million cases of shingles each year in this country. Anyone who has recovered from chickenpox may develop shingles; even children can get shingles. However the risk of shingles increases as you get older. About half of all cases occur in men and women 60 years old or older.” (See the CDC, last reviewed on May 1, 2014) (6)

Are there other treatments currently on the market, which target the Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV)?

Yes there are.

Zostavax is a vaccine that may reduce the risk of developing a shingles outbreak, and decrease the long-term pain from post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). In adults vaccinated at age 60 years or older, however, protection from the vaccine decreases within the first 5 years after vaccination. (6)

There are also antiviral drugs, such as Zovirax or Valtrex. However, these medications, when effective, only work to shorten the time of the shingles outbreak. They are ineffective against the latent VZV virus. (6)

Novirin is a natural remedy designed to help the immune system target latent herpes viruses, including the VZV. (5)

Interested individuals can view the studies published on the antiviral formula of Novirin here:http://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?PaperID=36101#.VNc8leaUf90 and http://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?PaperID=44234

Forbes: New Dietary Guidelines on Cholesterol Suggest that 50 Years of Medical Advice Was Wrong; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews the Report


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

Cholesterol in the diet or in the blood does not increase risk of heart disease, according to new research. In fact, shocking new cholesterol guidelines have been released by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee based on this new data. There is a paradigm that has been accepted by the medical community regarding cholesterol since 1961. This standard stated that there is both “good” and “bad” cholesterol, and when an individual eats certain foods, it increases “bad” cholesterol in the blood, which in turn can lead to heart disease. This paradigm has been shattered by new research.

A summary of the committee’s December 2014 meeting says “Cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for over consumption.” (See Harvard.edu, from February 12, 2015) (2) In other words, “You don’t need to worry about cholesterol in your food.” (2)

Professor Dan Rader said that “most of the cholesterol in our blood is not derived from our diets. Every cell in your body makes cholesterol. The old guidelines were based on a wrong assumption. We now know that cholesterol in the diet makes very little difference in terms of bad cholesterol in blood.” (1) He continued, saying that “the scandal here is that it’s taking so long for science to get incorporated into nutritional guidelines.” (1) Professor Rader is a professor of molecular medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

But, if cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, what is?

According to the CBCD, the answer is latent viruses.

More than one study has linked viruses to heart disease. In fact, both the human papillomavirus (HPV) and the varicella zoster virus (VZV) have been linked to cardiovascular disease. For instance, “Women infected with the human papillomavirus, or HPV, are two to three times as likely as uninfected women to have had a heart attack or stroke, according to a report published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology.” (See the New York Times, from October 24, 2011) (3).

Another study found that VZV “is an independent risk factor for vascular disease.” (See the journal Neurology, from January 21, 2014) (4).

The Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), which is more common than HPV or VZV, is also linked to heart disease. “Looking at blood samples from 299 heart patients, researchers at Ohio State University found that those who had suffered a heart attack were the most likely to have inflammatory proteins circulating in their blood compared to patients with less acute symptoms. And having more of one of these proteins in the blood was linked to the presence of antibodies that signal a latent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) reactivation.” (See News-Medical.net, from January 23, 2013) (6).

CMV is another common virus, which is linked to heart problems. “Cytomegalovirus was found to be the most common specific finding in immunocompetent patients (people with healthy immune systems) with fatal myocarditis.” (See Clinical Infectious Diseases, from March 1, 2005) (7).

“The new dietary recommendations, based on new research that shows no association between cholesterol and heart disease, should be no surprise to those who read Dr. Hanan Polansky’s book entitled ‘Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease.’” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

According to Dr. Polansky, the cause of heart disease, and other major diseases, is a latent infection with common viruses, including HPV, VZV, EBV, and CMV. Moreover, this theory also explains why the HPV study reports that “about 20 percent of patients with heart disease lack obvious risk factors (such as levels of saturated fat in the bloodstream).” (3)

How do latent viruses cause heart disease?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory, these viruses are genetic parasites. In high concentrations, they microcompete with the human genes, “starve” these genes, and force them to behave as if they’ve been mutated, that is, to behave as if they are broken.

The Theory of Microcompetition is far-reaching. It applies to many viruses, many genes, and many diseases.

The CBCD encourages doctors and other healthcare professionals to read Dr. Polansky’s book, which predicted that viruses would be the cause of most major diseases, including heart disease, more than ten years ago. “The concept of Microcompetition (or Starved Gene) will change our approach in the study of chronic diseases and will furthermore give scientists a higher level of understanding in biology.” – Dr. Marc Pouliot, PhD (See more reviews of Dr. Polansky’s book at: http://www.cbcd.net/reviews.htm )

Sandwich and Sub Store Franchises in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

The Sandwich and Sub Store Franchises industry has experienced consistent growth in line with the economic recovery. Industry revenue grew in 2011 as consumer confidence and spending rebounded from the recession, in part due to Subway’s success with the Five Dollar Footlong promotion. Franchisees managed to maintain that momentum during the following years by developing new menu options that capitalize on society’s increasing awareness of the health risks associated with a high-fat diet. As a result, the industry has been able to thrive, despite rapidly evolving consumer preferences for fast food, which have led to the stagnation and decline of other quick-service restaurants. During the five years to 2015, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow, including an increase this year.

Sandwich and sub store franchises exist within the quick-service restaurant sector, which has traditionally been dominated by fast-food giants, such as McDonald’s and Burger King. Nevertheless, these restaurants have been rocked in recent years by the rapidly evolving tastes of a new generation of consumers. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Will McKitterick, “millennials have turned increasingly to fast-casual restaurants to satisfy their hunger when dining out.” This means companies like Chipotle and Shake Shack have begun to usurp market share from some of the fast-food segment’s most important players, such as McDonald’s. Unlike other fast-food giants, most sandwich and sub store franchises have been able to thrive within this highly competitive environment by catering to consumers’ health and wellness concerns. For example, Subway is well known for its low-calorie menu options, which it spent a number of years developing. By advertising the healthful nature of their products, many sandwich franchises avoided the declines that the rest of the quick-service segment experienced during the period.

“In the coming years, industry operators will continue to face stiff external competition from members of the fast-casual food segment,” says McKitterick. In turn, many sandwich franchises will continue to expand their menu options to include a wider variety of healthy food options. For example, in 2010, Subway added breakfast items to their menu, and in 2011, it introduced Subway Cafes, which offer coffee, paninis, muffins and other pastries. Over the five years to 2020, these trends are expected to contribute to revenue growth.

Rising Average Age of Vehicles Drives the Global Market for Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn – The average life of vehicles on the road stands at a record high of 10 to 11 years. Key factors driving vehicle retention include engineering innovation, increase in useful life of vehicles, and changes in consumer wealth structure and financial choices. In the United States, consumer consumption, spending and income continue to remain flat. Greater than expected sluggishness in the labor market and lack of meaningful growth in wages and income are creating changes in consumer wealth and spending patterns. Recovery in asset prices and household wealth to pre-recession levels is seen as hugely unlikely. Another key reason for the relatively anemic recovery of consumer spending in the country is the wealth inequality which has been made even more disproportionate by the 2007-2009 economic recession. The recession punctured the over 8 trillion dollar overvalued housing bubble and crippled households across the country. The cumulative erosion in household wealth averaged to over US$ 15 trillion in the year 2010. In Europe, overindebted households represent a key bottleneck hindering consumer spending. With one in every 9 households in Europe unable to meet financial commitments including recurring expenses, spending on durable goods remains subdued. Against this backdrop, cars are being retained for longer.

The longer replacement cycle and the increase in the number of miles traveled per vehicle are creating opportunities in the aftermarket. Vehicle maintenance and component replacements are therefore receiving a boost. As the most critical safety system, brakes represent the most often replaced auto part. High replacement frequency of worn out brake components including rotors, brake pads, calipers and parts is spurring growth in the market. Stringent safety norms, growing consumer emphasis on personal safety, and focus on preventive maintenance, represent other major factors driving growth in the market. Healthy gains in automotive production in developing countries is also forecast to spur growth in the long-run, since more number of vehicles manufactured creates a parallel secondary market for auto parts including brake friction parts.

As stated by the new market research report on Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the surge in car ownership rates, and frequent wear and tear of the braking system due to heavy commuter traffic in crowded cities in densely populated countries such as India and China.    

Major players in the market include ABS Friction Inc., Advics Co. Ltd., Akebono Brake Industry Co. Ltd., Continental AG, Delphi Automotive PLC, Dongying Xinyi Automobile Fitting Co., Ltd., Federal-Mogul Corporation, Fras Le, Japan Brake Industrial Co. Ltd., Meritor Inc., Nan Hoang Traffic Instrument Co., Ltd., Nisshinbo Holdings Inc., Nisshinbo Brake Inc., TMD Friction Holding GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, and TRW Automotive, among others.
