A Resource Library To Empower Your Heart Health And Financial Literacy

"The best advice I ever got was that knowledge is power and to keep reading."  David Bailey

This resource library will put some very effective tools at your fingertips.  You'll be able to track your efforts at better cardiovascular system health.  You can check back every few days to get some timely seasonal tips. 

The second half of this page will provide several blocks of incredibly valuable teaching from a respected author.  His series of commentaries will center around the history of money.  This critical element of basic education is missing from most people's learning process.  You'll be able to find it in the latter part of this resource library.

You can find pages within the page directory in the left margin that corresponds to the content of this posting.  Rather than set up a link to each topic, which could be distracting, I'll use this method to alert you.

Just below is one of the most important videos we've ever posted at books-empower.com.  If the message is taken to heart, many of the chronic diseases plaguing our population and the costs associated with those conditions can be avoided or reversed.  

Tools To Help Monitor Your Cardiovascular System Health

In this top section of the resource library, we'll feature a few easy to use tools to help you track your progress.  The first two calculators deal with a challenge that effects so many people when trying to improve heart health.  That would of course be weight.  Just below is a way to see if you are on track in this area or if you need to do some work.

Simply fill in the values and hit "calculate."  You'll also find a small button to give you some more information.  You'll find one option for adults and another for children and teenagers.


Please remember that body mass index is just one measure of potential heart health danger.  Thin people can also fall victim to hypertension, stroke and heart diseaseInflammation is a result of improper diet.  Some people can eat loads of food and still stay thin.  That doesn't mean they are not exposing themselves to potential cardiac danger in later years.

Weight control is the first step in the process, but is still only one step.  If that step is taken earlier in life, the rest of the process becomes much easier.  Childhood obesity can be eliminated with very simple changes.  Changes that will eradicate many future diseases.

One of the fastest growing of those diseases would be type 2 diabetes.  Sadly, the age level when diagnosis is occurring has been steadily dropping.  The time to attack "pre-diabetes" is the same as all health challenges.  Before they become full scale battles.  Our next pair of tools in this resource library are just below.

The one on the left will give you a reasonable idea of your progress in avoiding type 2 diabetes.  The tool on the right offers some timely advice on a variety of subjects.  Hit the "more" button to gain extra insight into a particular topic.

The four tools presented so far in our resource library came from the Centers For Disease Control.  They recommend thirty minutes of exercise everyday.

That is certainly better than no exercise.  But after clearing it with your trusted physician, maybe you should shoot for 60 minutes per day.  You'll see amazing results. 


Just below is a ten question test to help determine your knowledge of statins.  New guidelines would suggest a huge increase in the number of people taking these prescription drugs.  Be sure you know both sides of the story.

Statins are one of the biggest cash machines available to big pharmacy.  The pressure put on physicians to prescribe these drugs is immense.  But it is the contention of many independent doctors that there are better ways to improved health than a lifetime of statins.  Please become your own best health advocate by researching this important topic.

We have several pages in the cardiovascular sub-section of the page directory about this very controversial subject.

We'll close out the cardiovascular system section of this resource library with a couple images.  The Mediterranean diet image will give you an idea of better food choices.     

And this next image will give you an idea of what foods are loaded with high fructose corn syrup.

Lastly, here is a short video that should shock you and cause you to re-think any idea of giving fast food chicken nuggets to your child.  Or yourself.


Principles Of Economics Resource Library

In part two of our resource library, we'll feature the amazing series from Mike Maloney on the history of money.   This is some of the very best business and economics information you will find anywhere.  And it is presented in an easy to understand format.  The videos are around 30 minutes each.  About the time it takes to watch one sitcom.  However these presentations are much more empowering.

The first installment teaches us the difference between currency and money. 

In part two we gain more insight into how various currency came about.  The reichsmark era comes to mind.

Part three generates a little controversy.  Mike Maloney gives his take on the long range future of the U.S. dollar as the reserve currency in the world.

In my opinion episode four is the most important in the entire series.  It has already been viewed 6,000,000 times.  This video shows the actual path of currency in America.  It shows the integral part played by the federal reserve system in our country.  "The Creature From Jekyll Island" is exposed. 

In part five we see what happens when money is corrupted.  We learn about the lengths various nations go to debase their own currency.

And here is the latest installment in this amazing video series.  Hopefully you're passing these visual lessons along to as many people as possible.  Knowledge is the new money.

Next I'll give you a much shorter video.  It came out several years ago.  The author had the audacity to suggest our personal home was not an asset.  His veiwpoint was that assets put money in your pocket and liabilities take money out of your pocket.

He was roundly criticized by real estate "professionals" and various television "experts."  Now the news sources are full of columns explaining why our home isn't really an asset after all.  Better late to the party than missing it all together.

Just below is a quote from "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson.  The chapter title is "Open Your Heart To Compassion." 

"Every day we are given hundreds of opportunities to practice compassion in action.  We can learn to be less reactive and live with more patience.

We can smile when others are serious.  We can drive our cars more carefully, pick up litter on the streets, recycle, and reduce our consumption.

We can resolve conflicts rather than create them, and we can become less judgemental and more inclusive.  When someone is aggressive, we can teach them to be more peaceful.  Instead of waiting for an example, we can be the example.

The more compassion that enters your heart, the happier and more peaceful you will become.  By knowing that you are doing your part to create a better world-whatever form that takes-you will fill any void that exists in your life, and you will begin to find the peace you are looking for."
