Did You Know – 02/11/2019

  1. It is illegal in Chicago for lawns to have weeds more than 10 inches tall. According to the Chicago Tribune 2013 “Under Chicago’s ridiculous, contradictory but lucrative ‘weed ordinance,’ that plant might be designated as a weed by some Streets and Sanitation worker and you might be subject to a $600 fine multiplied every day it remains higher than 10 inches.”

“In the past two years the city has collected some $3.7 million from frequently unwitting citizens who had no idea that almost anything in their gardens taller than 10 inches could be termed a weed by a Streets and Sanitation worker who can issue a ticket with no warning to correct or defend the situation.”

2. There is only one stop sign in the whole of Paris – There’s only one STOP sign in the entire city of Paris.  The lucky one is situated at the exit of a building company’s drive, in the rich 16th arrondissement. Concerning the traffic rules in the city centre, it’s simply the right which gets priority.

3. Human beings have as many brain cells in their stomachs as cats have in their brains. It’s called the enteric nervous system. The brain in your gut is embedded in the wall of the digestive tract. … An adult’s enteric nervous system is made up of 200 to 600 million nerve cells (neurons). That’s as many neurons as are in a cat’s brain. Together with your “big brain,” the enteric nervous system helps control gastrointestinal function, including the mixing and grinding of food in the stomach and absorption of nutrients in the intestines. A very interesting subject and if you want to read more just go to the source.

4. New Car smell is toxic to humans. The human nose can recognize over 1,000,000,000,000 different smells. People associate the smell with the luxury of having purchased a new set of wheels. But the smell that comes along with your new ride is actually really toxic and can be harmful to your health.Robert Weitz, a certified microbial investigator and founder of RTK Environmental Group , says that the new car scent you’re smelling is actually made up of something called volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. The new car smell occurs when the various materials that make up your car “outgas” and release VOCs.

5.   More wine is drunk per head in the Vatican city than any other country on earth. 

The figures show that residents of the Vatican consume 74 litres of wine on average – roughly equivalent to 105 bottles over the course of a year.

The fact that it only has a population of around 800 people does make it easy for per-capita figures to be distorted ,  however – and in the Vatican there is reportedly a single supermarket supplying everyone with wine almost completely tax-free.

Australia – Has Your Government Worked As Hard For You?

Look, Love Him or Hate Him.  One must admit this man together with his well-appointed administration have worked tirelessly from day one to accomplish what they consider the best way to make “America Great Again”.

Could you say that about the Australian Government, either party – Hmmmmm don’t think so. I think it would be hard to find any single thing they have accomplished that will make “Australia Great Again” or even make Australians proud of their Government. Seems they spend most of the tax payers money stabbing each other in the back and achieving nada.

There is a lot happening in the US some good even GREAT and some people that come under the Hate column just shere  mean and spiteful. No one can say that the US Republicans are only working for themselves and the next election.

This is a long list some you will agree upon and some, not so much, never the less it is improving the American Economy and that’s what it’s all about. The Australian politicians need to put their heads down and arse up and do some good for Australia.

YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT THESE LOGOS THE SAME WAY, AGAIN

 


 

Do you see the arrow between the “E” and “x” (in white)?
               I had never noticed it before.



The 2nd and 3rd “T’s” are two people sharing (or fighting over) a
  tortilla and a bowl of salsa.


The world’s most famous bike race. The “R” in “Tour” is a cyclist.
The yellow circle is the front wheel of a bicycle, the “O” is the back wheel.



The arrow means Amazon has everything from A to Z

 
There is a dancing bear above the “ble”. Toblerone chocolate bars originated in Berne, Switzerland, whose symbol is the bear.


See the ” 31” embedded in the ” BR”? Thirty-one-derful flavors!

 



See the gorilla and lioness (in white) facing each other?
   

 

Just think, people get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to dream this up!

NINE (9) THINGS I KNOW ABOUT YOU     
1) You are reading this.     
2) You are human. 
3) You can’t say the letter ”P” without separating your lips. 
4) You just attempted to do it. 
6) You are laughing at yourself.     
7) You have a smile on your face and you skipped No. 5. 
8) You just checked to see if there is a No. 5. 
9) You laugh at this because you are a fun loving person & everyone does it too.

Inflammation the Curse to Your Health💦

 

I was reading this article today and for those of us that do a lot of reading on health matters we are very well aware that inflammation in the body is basically a death threat. 

Dr. Dwight Lundell – who has been a heart surgeon for 25 years – his words –   without inflammation being present in the body there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.”

It appears that with bad health most practitioners will dish out medication in the hopes that it will fix the problem. It will not. Getting rid of inflammation from your body is the only way.

As Dr. Dwight Lundell says inflammation is  quite simply your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. 

Here are 3 simple ways to fight inflammation as the good doctor recommends

  1.  Watch what you eat and don’t eat foods that have labels with words you can’t even pronounce or foods that would be better suited for a Sci-fi movie than a human body.  Foods in their natural form are not harmful to the human body.
  2. Watch what you drink.  Many of our beverages-of-choice are acidic and the promote inflammation!  Is that soda, sports drink or alcoholic beverage really worth the ultimate price you pay?
  3. Hydrate!  The blood is 90% water and your body needs LOTS of water to fight inflammation.  But not just any water will do.  Water laced with chemicals out of the tap just worsens your state of inflammation as the body fights hard to process what it isn’t equipped to handle.  On the other hand, most bottled waters not only have chemicals from the plastics but they are void of minerals that the body desperately needs.  For inflammation (and lots of other reasons) you’ll want to drink Electrolyzed Reduced Water.  

Now these are his words, but very much in keeping with what I believe and why I have the best Electrolyzed  Water machine in the world that being the Enagic K8 Kangen Water machine. 

 

Kangen water is pure clean Ionized water with a Ph level of alkaline water that will improve your health and help rid any inflammation in the body. Consequently help to improve your chances of getting obliterating  cancer, cholesterol, and many other disease complications.

Dr Dwight Lundell is very controversial on this subject and been criticized by his profession but I believe it to be very close to the truth and maybe what drug companies do not want to hear. I think he has support about this all around the world.

The Vitamin That Reverses Ageing and improves Health

 

I read about this in the Australian Courier Mail today  and thought I would pass it on as all of us -Yes All Of Us! I am sure would find this rather interesting. Of course I like to keep up with anything new that will help with health and aging my two favorite subjects.

Here is the article:-

A DRUG that could reverse the ageing process and make space travel possible will be trialled on humans this year and could be on the market in 2020.

Australian scientists have found a vitamin, nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), that helps cells repair DNA damage and it’s so good they are taking the pill themselves.

Middle aged mice given the vitamin lived 20 per cent longer and were able to run faster.

“The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice, after just one week of treatment,” said Professor David Sinclair of UNSW School of Medical Sciences and Harvard Medical School Boston.

“This is the closest we are to a safe and effective anti-ageing drug that’s perhaps only three to five years away from being on the market if the trials go well.”

In a paper published in Science today, the researchers identify a critical step in the molecular process that allows cells to repair damaged DNA.

Research by University NSW scientists Prof Sinclair and Dr Lindsay Wu into the substance won NASA’s iTech competition in December last year because of its potential use in the planned 2025 mission to Mars.

Accelerated ageing caused by cosmic radiation, mental impairment and increased risk of cancer are pitfalls of space travel.

On a trip to Mars five per cent of the astronauts’ cells will die affecting their mental and physical capacity.

It’s hoped this vitamin might be able to reverse that damage says Dr Wu.

Back on earth the medicine promises to help every human defy the ageing process and stay healthy and it has potential to overcome the terrible side effects of cancer radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

It’s also been found to treat Type 2 diabetes and restore vision following eye damage in animals.

A separate Japanese study showed mice given NMN gained less weight with ageing even when they consumed more food perhaps because their boosted metabolism used more energy.

Dr Wu, aged 33, is not old but says he has been taking the vitamin pill for a year.

“I am using it, I’m not supposed to take it but I feel just fine, there are no side effects,” he said.

“I take it out of intellectual curiosity.

However, he said the general population should not use it until it has been property tested in clinical trials.

And when clinical trials are complete it won’t be on the market to treat ageing, instead it is likely to be used as a therapy to treat the side effects of cancer radiotherapy.

“The big problem is that regulatory authorities don’t recognise ageing as a disease even though you lose memory, you lose movement and it gives you cancer,” he says.

To get approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration NMN will have to be registered to treat a recognised disease like the side effects of radiation. 

Things could be about to change though. A US trial is underway to test whether the diabetes drug metformin can extend human life and prevent cancer because of evidence it expands lifespan in animals.

“The makers of Metformin will be the first to push the FDA to recognise ageing, change is in the air,” says Dr Wu.

The discovery of the vitamin developed out of research into the famed life extending qualities of the molecule resveratrol found in red wine.

HOW IT WORKS

NMN works on the same biological pathway as resveratrol.

Every time we go out into the sun our DNA is damaged but our body repairs the damage, however as we age our body’s ability to do the repairs declines, Dr Wu explains.

A vitamin Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) present in every cell boosts the body’s ability to repair cells but it declines by 60 per cent as we age or when we are exposed to radiation.

“If you can boost NAD+ you can boost DNA repair,” he says.

The research found that if you treated mice with a NAD+ precursor, or “booster,” called NMN it improved their cells’ ability to repair DNA damage caused by radiation exposure or old age.

So there it is. I hope you read all the article as it is very informative and could be helpful in your health. I am going to give it a try – Nothing to loose.

Ron Chester, 89 years of age, was stopped by the police around 2 am
and was asked where he was going at that time of night.

Ron replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on
the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”

The officer asked, “Really? Who’s giving that lecture at this time of night?”

Ron replied, “That would be my wife.”
