  1. The French population yearly consumption of butter is around 18lbs per person. Amazing isn’t it considering it has one of the lowest numbers of heart problems.

 

2. Even before we are born we yawn. Studies have shown that even 11 week old Fetus yawns. The activity of yawning is said to be rejuvenating the brain.

 

3.  Most pilots and copilots on major airlines are not allowed to eat the same food –  to avoid the possibility of food poisoning sickening the entire flight crew. Also the risk of being killed in a plane crash for the average American is 1 in 11 million. The risk of being killed in a car accident is 1 in 5,000.

4. Some trees emit chemicals that attract enemies of their enemies. – Trees may look passive and helpless, but they’re savvier than they seem. Not only can they produce chemicals to combat leaf-eating insects, for instance, but some also send airborne chemical signals to each other, apparently warning nearby trees to prepare for an insect attack. Research has shown that a wide range of trees and other plants become more resistant to insects after receiving these signals.
Trees’ airborne signals can even convey information outside the plant kingdom. Some have been shown to attract predators and parasites that kill the insects, essentially letting an embattled tree call for backup. Research has mainly focused on chemicals that attract other arthropods, but as a 2013 study found, apple trees under attack by caterpillars release chemicals that attract caterpillar-eating birds.

5. Our feet are the home to about a quarter of all the bones in our bodies – There are 26 bones in each foot—one less than in each hand. When we’re born, those bones are mostly cartilage. The bones in our feet only completely harden around age 21.

3. Laughter helps to destroy tumor cells and reduce risk of cancer by 25%.
Laughter is a physical reaction in humans and some other species of primate, consisting typically of rhythmical, often audible contractions of the diaphragm and other parts of the respiratory system. It is a response to certain external or internal stimuli.
Wikipedia
Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Laughter the best medicine

4. Music is one of the few activities in life that involve using the whole brain.
Finnish researchers have developed a groundbreaking new method that allows to study how the brain processes different aspects of music, such as rhythm, tonality and timbre (sound color) in a realistic listening situation. The study is pioneering in that it for the first time reveals how wide networks in the brain, including areas responsible for motor actions, emotions, and creativity, are activated during music listening. The new method helps us understand better the complex dynamics of brain networks and the way music affects us.

5.Thomas Jefferson wrote in an 1816 letter to John Taylor that ‘the banking system of the US Government could potentially destroy ‘all our constitutions’, was already corrupt, was sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens, would swindle future generations to acquire its funding and that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies’ . I think that guy had great foresight in my opinion.

 

6.  Interactive ‘Murder Map’ pinpoints all homicide locations in London since 1811

A project, founded by Peter Stubley, aims to create a comprehensive portrayal of homicide in London.

The murderous database uses information released by the Metropolitan Police, the Crown Prosecution Service alongside media coverage and court records to show slayings by knife crime, gun crime, bombings and poison, among other causes.

1. Hookworm larvae are to be injected into coeliacs in bid to treat gluten intolerance

James Cook University Australia, doctors John Croese and Paul Giacomin hope to find a drug derived from the parasites to treat gluten intolerance.
The larvae are put under a bandage, they burrow into the patients’ skin to make their way into their intestines.Hookworms do not breed within the human body so there is no chance of the parasite multiplying to dangerous numbers.
Results: Some Participant in the trial ate pizza for the first time in 15 years.
The future of worm therapy is likely to involve the manufacture of synthetic versions of these worm proteins in the laboratory in the hope that eventually they could become a pill-based medication to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, including coeliac disease.

Dogs Nose Their Water

Dogs Prefer Kangen Water. Why do dogs and cats love Kangen water?

Dogs as compared to us humans have a very fast metabolism and thus react much better and faster to Kangen Water®.
It has been observed that dogs and cats alike prefer a bowl of Kangen water® over a bowl of tap water when placed side by side. Animals have an innate ability to differentiate what they need.
Most pet owners are unaware the damage they are doing to Fido when they serve them tap water or in many cases even bottled water.
In the case of tap water, chlorine, chloride, fluoride, heavy metals and many damaging chemicals are present in our tap water. Filtering our tap water with a quality three-phase filter would help dramatically.
With Kangen, this water, first filtered, supplies your pets with alkaline, anti-oxidizing water that your pets will love and actually crave.

Its Had The Life Sucked Out Of It!

In an interview the other day, Deepak Chopra was asked a question about how to live a healthy life, he had four answers, one of them being, do not buy any food with a label or in a can, it has no life.

You may not agree with his philosophies but you need to agree with that one. He is so right and why do I say that? Think about it, if it is in a can it has been cooked to hell and back and not an ounce of life is left in it and if it has a label it has either been cooked till it is dry like the packet it is in or it is in some form of powder and no life in it either.

This is a subject dear to my heart and have been pontificating about it for years to mostly deaf ears and some who think I was rather eccentric. This is an example. I love to cook meals and pride myself in using fresh herbs and spices when I can, only to be horrified to see someone put ketchup on their meal. Depending on who they are I say nothing it is their choice, but if it is a family member, then they get a tongue lashing from me. Why you might ask? Well they might as well pour sugar, salt and chemicals on their meal. They will not even taste the natural herbs and spices I used.

Here is a reason why most of our countries population is over weight and suffer from those muffin tops and big bellies. If you are eating a sausage or any meat for that matter without ketchup you would probably have one helping and that would satisfy your appetite. If you put ketchup on your sausage , steak chips or whatever is on your plate  you can be sure you will have another helping. What happens is the salt and the sugar plus the chemicals will stimulate your taste buds and you will crave for more. I learnt this many years ago from a nutritionist called Adele Davis who wrote a book called “Lets eat right.” She was not wrong.  I believe that book is a result of my good health today.

What really started me on this subject was a program on ’60 Minutes’ about a company called Givaudan, which is one of many that make flavors for our food. This particular Swiss company is in 45 different countries, its purpose is find flavors that will create a craving. An example of this is soups, anything in a can, packet or box.

They have people in their company who have a job of finding different flavors that will appeal to us the public.  They call  sniffers. This group will go around to, real fruit farms and sniff their top quality fruit for that special flavor extract the flavor molecules, head off back to the factory and mimic that flavor with chemicals. Their main aim is to produce a flavor that is not lingering so you want to come back for more. Basically they are creating an addictive taste.

Chemicals, well they are man-made we know that when we see that label.
Natural flavors? Well that is not what the label implies. There is really nothing natural about flavorings. Flavors are manipulated and then give you the impression tat you are tasting a natural product. It is absolutely an illusion
Another example of this is they can manufacture the old oak tree flavor for some cheap whiskeys to give you the impression they have been stored in oak barrels.

For them its is like music, they call all their different flavors ‘notes’. They store thousands of different ‘notes’ to make thousands of different flavors for food. Many of those flavorings are also used in most restaurants where you think you are getting real deal.

That chicken that you thought was smoked–artificial flavoring. That barbeque fish from your favorite restaurant well the chances are that’s just flavoring. That grilled steak, that barbecued steak, yes the same.

Those flavored chips, ready to eat meals, soup, stews, rice dishes, almost every product in the supermarket has been enhanced artificially and intensified with fat, sugar or salt, to create the addiction to the taste.

Dr Kessler who is a former head of the FDA was saying that the flavors are so stimulated it actually hijack the brain. It makes food super palatable and makes us eat more.

We want healthy food but most of us will not eat anything that is bland, hence we have the flavors produced to make us enjoy  eating it. We don’t want to eat anything that has sugar in it, but we wont eat anything that is not sweet, so they make a flavor that gives the impression of sweet.
The whole purpose is to make the tasting experience memorable and a desire to eat more.

So you may ask why our nations people are getting fatter and finding it very hard to lose weight yourself. Well here is your answer.

Your answer to a weight problem is to observe what you buy and stay with natural ‘Fresh’ food as much as you can.

If you don’t do different nothing will change

Another interesting piece of information I received today was on the statement that Dr Oz made a few months ago about the high levels of arsenic in apple juice.

Dr Oz was criticized and ridiculed by the FDA, some of the media, and some members of his own profession.

Apparently the FDA stretched the truth (lied) about some of the facts and now has apologized to Dr OZ and agreed that his statement was correct.
Good one Dr Oz.
