Breaking the World Record for Testicular Cancer Awareness

BTB Sunglasses and the Testicular Cancer Society are out to break a world record in an effort to spread awareness about testicular cancer.  The goal is to donate 8290 sports balls (the number of men diagnosed with testicular cancer every year) within 24 hours.  Doing so will break the world record for this sort of thing…and will definitely get the word out there about this cause.

“After we’ve collected all of the balls, the Testicular Cancer Society will be donating them to the Marine’s Toys for Tots.  This goes with the BTB Foundation’s mission to help fight against childhood obesity.” – BTB Sunglasses

The event will be held December 9-10th, and up until that date every sale made on the BTB Sunglasses’ website will support a donation of 2 balls to breaking the record.

We featured BTB in the past in our cycling sunglasses giveaway and review and wanted to help spread the word on this worthy event they are taking part in.  You might also know about a famous pro cyclist who came back to win 7 TdF victories after battling testicular cancer.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
