Small Savings – Big Fortune

  1. Some Grease and grime on hands – Usually a tub of hand cleaner is around $10 . You can use a teaspoon of cooking oil and some sugar , it works equally well. Some say a teaspoon of peanut butter (❤️ peanut butter so a waste in my eyes). That is a $10 save

2. The carrier on top of your car – Remove it when possible. It can reduce gas mileage by 25%. That is a three gallon waste per fill up or about $8 in gas.

According to an article on ancient birth control methods, Midwives today may use blue cohosh in the last month of pregnancy to tone the uterus in preparation for labour. The completely unrelated but similarly named black cohosh also has estrogenic and abortifacient properties and was often combined with blue cohosh to terminate a pregnancy.

Did You Know – 11/30/2015

???????????????????????????????????????????

You probably already know this but some  don’t. Research by European Journal of Applied Physiology shows that a hard workout can be salve for achy joints. It has shown that those with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis that sweated through 30 minutes of indoor cycling intervals twice a week slashed indicators of the pain causing inflammation in their blood by an average of nearly 40% after 10 weeks. They also lost weight and body fat and their stamina also improved. High intensity training releases a hormone that helps convert unhealthy white fat to calorie burning brown fat.
The University of California have also discovered a molecular switch capable of converting unhealthy white fat into healthy, energy-burning brown fat in mice. Drugs that flip this switch rapidly reduced obesity and diabetes risk factors in mice fed a high fat diet.
For those who find it impossible to exercise and are overweight this drug of the future may be the answer for them.
For me fresh air, good music and exercise is the answer.
