Did You Know – 01/03/2017

First Did You Know for the Year

  1. Bruce Springsteen said he  is afraid of the Trump Presidency,  he also said when President Reagan was elected that he was very afraid. I guess he is a very afraid Democrat. (He has got nothing to be afraid of.)

2. A rigorously done new study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. That’s 400 percent! Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30 percent.

 

3. If you see this label

a.  A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is probably conventionally grown. The last digits of the code represent the kind of the fruit or vegetable you are buying. For example, bananas are always labeled with the code of 4011.

b.  If there are five numbers, and the first is “8″, then the product is genetically modified. The label on genetically modified banana (GE-genetically engineered of GMO) would contain the numbers 84011.

c.  A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic. Organic bananas are labeled with 94011.

EWG ( The Environmental Working Group) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.
The Environmental Protection Agency warns that the consumption of pesticides can lead to health problems such as “birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time.” Children are especially at risk of harm from pesticides.

Eggs do Not Cause a Heart Attack! – But Sugar Does

 

unknown

More than 70 percent of Americans consume 10 percent of their daily calories from sugar. And about 10 percent of Americans consume one in every four of their calories from sugar.
We’ve been told to swap eggs for cereal. But that recommendation is dead wrong. In fact, it’s very likely that this bad advice has killed millions of Americans.

Eggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.” They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.
A study showed that your risk of heart attacks doubles if sugar makes up 20 percent of your calories.
So eat up your eggs!
In one study showed, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels (Good cholesterol) by 10%

Here are 10 reasons you should be eating eggs every day.

1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious
2. Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol
3. Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol
4. Eggs Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of
5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease
6. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health
7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well
8. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios
9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke
10. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

Bottom Line: Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

The End Of A Career

Screen Shot 2015-08-19 at 8.44.06 AM

Paulo Saraiva
This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Álvaro Múnera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.

Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer – because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

This picture as pointed out to me is not the end of Torrero Munera career. Nor is it his quote. I went to slopes to confirm. If you like to go to the link below it will fill you in on the details. Thank you Snopes and Mr Steven Moon.

The posture shown in the photograph is not one of a torero collapsing or expressing contrition; rather, it’s a common posture of (defiance), a bit of showmanship in which the torero indicates his total domination of the bull by taking up what appears to be a dangerous position in front of the animal’s horns. (Also, the quotation that accompanies the photograph was not spoken by Múnera; it is the work of Spanish writer Antonio Gala, who was not himself a torero.)

Survive Crisis No 6 – You Are Alone

You have suddenly become nauseated, dizzy and weak. Don’t wait around and self diagnose. Is it a Stroke, Heart Attack, Vertigo? You cannot tell. If you think you are going to faint or blackout sit down so that you don’t hurt yourself if you fall.

a. Call 911 or the emergency number of the country you are in. (I think personally it should be the same number world-wide). Because this is not the case when you travel always take note of what the emergency number is in that country as you never know when you need it.

Unlock your front door. If you are fainting get on the floor and if possible call verbally for help.

 

b. If this happens while drivingPull over to the side of the road and put on your  flashers. Call 911 and do not get out of the car as you may get knocked over by a passing vehicle.

c. Emergency responder instructionsThey will often place you in what they call ‘Recovery Position’ which is protection from hurting yourself if you become unconscious. 

Arrange yourself in this position by lying on your side with your bottom arm extended out from your body. Bend your top arm 90 degrees and drape your top wrist over your bottom elbow. Drape your top leg over your bottom leg.

Organizing your limbs in this way will prevent your body from rolling into another position .

d. Extra ProtectionIf you have a chronic condition it pays to always keep your cell phone handy. Another protection for speedy attention,  have your blood group written down or on an ID necklace  or any drug that you may be allergic to. It could save your life.

Survive Crisis No 5 – Someone Is Pointing A Gun At You

“Extreme situations always sound crazy – until you’re in one”

cat-tax-cat-holding-hands-up-gun-pointing-at-him-788789

This is one situation none of us ever want to be in. You think it wont happen to you but you can be blindsided by the unexpected at any place and time.

a. According to Steve Kardian director of the NY Defend University and former police detective “If it’s a robbery, give up the goods immediately.”
Do not challenge them. Treat it like a business deal.
Unless you think you are about to be shot do not go for the gun. Fake an illness like you are about to throw up or have a heart attack. Then get out of there as fast as you can

b. If you hear shots. ‘Believe it’ those shots are probably from a gun not a vehicle back firing. If you have only heart the noise but have not seen the shooter you still have time to run in the opposite direction.
If you have seen the shooter or worse he or she has seen you put something large between you and the shooter. A Car, a Wall, a Tree (large one) anything that will stop a bullet.
If you feel you must run ‘Zig Zag’ it will make it difficult to put you in the line of fire even for an expert.

c. Be Proactive – Plan ahead. If you have to pass through a dark area that gives you the creeps or walk to your car in a dark dingy car park, through a park that is not well-lit.
Make a plan, visualize where you can escape to. Work out an escape route just in case.
Your gut instinct plays a bit part so take notice of it and run like hell if you even suspect someone is following you.
