Health is a condition of mental, physical and social well being where infirmity and illness are absent. The concept of health has become more significant than the concepts of wealth or poverty. It covers all the aspects that are related to health and the people who lead a healthy life usually enjoy better health conditions and live longer. There are numerous causes of poor health conditions and some of the major ones are age, genetic background, environment, habits, diet, lifestyle, gender and heredity. There are various types of diseases and health disorders and each has its own specific target or description.

Some of the health issues are associated with behaviors and lifestyles. The increasing number of communicable diseases is a result of poor and unsafe lifestyle practices.

It has been found that lifestyle, personality and genes exert strong influence on the determinants of ill-health or disability. These three determinants are basically influenced by your genes and your lifestyle. The presence of any of these 3 determinants in you may put you at risk for any illness.

A Brief History of The Teacher, Or, The Ancient One!

Toto is the brand of choice for many tattoo artists. They are a well known company in Japan, they have been around since the 1970’s and are well respected. I have always bought my tattoo supplies from them and always had a very happy and satisfied experience. However recently I have been made aware of a serious issue and I want to pass this information onto all customers, male and female. Please bear in mind this is not a TOTO review but an overview of their issues.

The Toto Company (or simply Toto) means: Tower on the Go. Which is an American rock band that started playing music in the 1970’s and are still playing to this day. Meaning the Japanese people are still trying to unlock the secret of this giant flower. Example: “So Far so good, I’m still having trouble with my first girlfriend”. Also, what does HK means in Nigeria?

Well, you see, back in the 1970’s when Toto became popular in America (at the height of their popularity), they were a very popular Japanese band. They went on to record many hit singles and were even famous in America as a successful hard rock band. Hong Kong then was populated with many hard rock bands like the Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Mottley Crue, etc. It was at this time that Toto was formed and their lyrics and music took off in their native land of Japan. Soon after they went to Hong Kong, they became popular there too and were even considered one of the best known and most popular groups there. As such, there were many illegal copies printed on their shirts which were actually sold to the general public in order to make money.

Therefore, Toto made the decision to try out their new album in America (which was their first ever album ever to be released outside of Japan) and they were a huge success! Thus, when Toto began to make an appearance at Hong Kong shows, many people tried to get tickets so that they could see the legendary hard rock band play. Eventually, the tickets sold out in just a few minutes and the venue was forced to turn up the volume to hear the huge sound, forcing the rest of the audience to leave early. A local newspaper, the Evening News, was not amused by the whole scene, publishing a story about how the local Chinese-American rock band had forced the Hong Kong shows to be a hit, and then ran a piece a week later about how the whole thing had been blown out of proportion by the locals.

Unfortunately, for everybody involved (including the restaurant which made the Toto food, who probably did not want to upset their already highly popular tofu recipe), the restaurant had to close its doors for a few days while they dealt with all the lawsuits from all the people who had bought tickets and were disappointed when the show did not become a huge success! The American rock band eventually reformed, but they were not nearly as successful as Toto. They are currently signed to the major record label G.E.D. and their self-titled album is due to be released soon.

I must say that I am a huge fan of both G.E.D. and Toto. Both bands have played many memorable live shows for me and I would always be impressed by the technical skill and musicianship of these giants of heavy metal. While Toto’s influence has been all over the world, G.E.D. ‘s territory is more localized and this band has done a fantastic job at making their presence felt. While Toto may have conquered the world with their song, Porcaro, I think Porcaro has actually found a new home in the hearts and minds of true G.E.D. fans everywhere!
