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.

SkySaver – Building Escape Backpack

If you live in a ‘High Rise’ building I think this is a great investment. Even this morning there was 7 deaths in an apartment fire which maybe, who knows, one of these backpacks may have saved some lives.
They are not cheap but if your intention is to live in apartments then I think they are a must. Beats jumping.

Wishing You A Merry Christmas

product_89916_1_orig

Well what happened to this year
Went so fast, another year older I fear

2013 has seen so many countries at War, deaths and not much peace
We can pray for the young ones but history shows they never cease

But on a happier note Britain has a new prince
We saw a country and many people joyous like we have not seen since

2014 we should all make it a year where we consider getting fit
At least begin, start out slow, start out doing just a little bit

Make it a year where we become more aware
All the things that surround us, stop, look around, with a concentrated stare

Listen to those who have something important for them, to say
Because your consideration and care could save a life that day

Observe that they maybe suffering some sort of disturbed sadness
They may be different and considered by some suffering from madness

This is a wonderful time to celebrate and be with friends and relations
To enjoy each other, Bring in the New Year together with all nations

For me I wish you all plenty of cheer and goodwill
Enjoy each moment because you and I know time will not stand still

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
