You Should Eat That Apple Core

This is an article from the website of  Dr Mercola which I thought was very interesting. Organic Apples are the winner here, not so much a conventionally grown apple that has fungicide and insecticide sprayed on them.

Not a fan of yogurt?  This is a way to get your probiotic necessary for that healthy digestive system

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Apples’ antioxidant power is contained in the peel. However, recent research shows the core of the apple contains plenty of beneficial bacteria (probiotics)
  • A typical apple contains about 100 million bacteria. ORGANIC APPLES have far greater diversity compared to conventional apples, and contain higher amounts of bacteria that enhance flavor
  • Organic apples were the only ones found to contain Lactobacilli, bacteria that break down sugars associated with healthy digestion, robust immune function and even mental health
  • Conventional apples (non organic)  were found to contain Escherichia coli and Shigella — two Enterobacteriaceae species associated with foodborne illness, as both produce potent shigatoxin. Neither of these species was found in organic apples
  • Bacterial colonization of fruit begins at pollination, and the ultimate composition of a fruit’s microbiota is actually influenced by the microbial community found in the pollen

This article is well worth reading.

5 of the 99 Great Ways to Save From the AARP Bulletin

  1. Get dental work for a fraction of the cost from dentist – supervised students. Go to ada.org and click on dental schools. The federal government also offers help. Go to nidcr.nih.gov then search “findings dental care”

 

2. A survey found that if you haggle the price of hearing aids with certain retail businesses you may be able to save. One survey found about half of the 14% who haggled got a better deal. Sometime you can save over 1,000 dollars buying online. I promote of course to buy from the retailer to support them and employment. 

 

3. Apply for free meds:- Go to the partnership for prescription assistance  pparx.org . Patients that qualify save hundreds of dollars. 

4. Be a house sitter:- The site trustedhousesitters.com Matches those sho need their pets and homes watched. Another site to go to for more information on this is SecretBlogger.com

More Gas Pump Wisdom

#PetrolPumpWisdom, which are uplifting quotes written on a chalkboard.

The lady behind this wonderful initiative at Hutton Hyde Park is Alison BillettShe told  in Gauteng, South African  People: “We inherited the board from the previous owner, Dick Hutton, 
when we bought the filling station from him almost 20 years ago.

“We continued the tradition and it has become a landmark – more so now that it’s on social media!

“Not a day goes by when I don’t get a call or a visit from someone to tell me how much they appreciate the message –
it seems that every day there’s something that just speaks to what is going on in someone’s life and that inspires or motivates them.
