Those of Okinawa in Japan say “Eat till you are 80% Full – They call this “Hara hachi bu” These guys are famous for having the worlds longest life expectancy and low rates of heart disease and cancer.

Reach For Your Feet and Massage Every night

I found this article on a website called http://news2matters.com/4996395-16011312.

Often when we are massaging our feet we don’t realize what organs we are stimulating and I thought this was a good diagram to show you where the pressure points are. Often if you are not feeling the best massaging these pressure points will give you an idea of what is happening in your body. Usually the area that is the problem will show up as a tender spot on your foot.

Try it and see and you will probably be impressed with the result as well as having a good night sleep.

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. Massage can be applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device.
We can easily say that one of the best massages is the feet massage. Some parts of our feet are connected with different organs in the human body. Make sure you massage your feet every night before going to bed, and we guarantee you that you will feel these positive effects:

1.Scientists are planning to reanimate a 30,000 year old extinct virus found in the permafrost of Siberia to understand its origin and mod of evolution. If it can be easily revived the concern is that with the climate changing and the Siberian ground ice melting it could cause the virus to reawaken a more harmful virus. Found buried 30 meters ( 100 ft ) deep in the frozen solid this could be the second time that researchers will reawaken a prehistoric virus.

2. Japanese population is shrinking. Japan’s birth rate fell to a new record low in 2014, with data showing just over a million new births.

The estimated number of people who died in 2014 totaled 1.269 million, rising for the fifth year in a row.

The main causes for Japan’s population decline are both economic and social. More than twenty years of economic stagnation have seriously dampened any kind of optimism.

3. Taco bell has a taco made completely from fried chicken. They recently introduced ‘naked crispy chicken taco’. 

There is only two locations in which it’s sold, one in Lost Hills, Calif., and the other in Bakersfield, Calif.

It’s a breaded white meat chicken shell filled with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, and avocado ranch sauce.

For me it sounds rather yummy

4. A device that reanimates organs taken from dead patients has shown promise in heart transplant surgeries.  The so-called “heart in a box” uses tubing and oxygen to pump blood and electrolytes into hearts from recently deceased patients, allowing the organs to continue functioning within a chamber. A  Massachusetts-based company, Transmedics said this system has been successfully deployed in at least 15 heart transplants in the UK and Australia, and is awaiting regulatory approval in the US.

Until now, hearts used for transplants have usually been extracted from brain-dead patients; those from dead patients have been considered too damaged. Once removed, the hearts are also stored and transported in cold temperatures to avoid rapid deterioration, though scientists have begun using devices like the “Heart in a Box’ to keep the organs warm and functioning. That, doctors say, could increase the pool of donated hearts by between 15 and 30 percent.

5. Reversible Destiny Lofts —founded by Shusaku Arakawa, a Japanese neo-Dadaist and associate of Marcel Duchamp, and Madeline Gins, an American poet with a background in physics and Eastern philosophy—has produced several homes and recreational sites designed to create a more robust body and mind. Chief among them are the Reversible Destiny Lofts in Tokyo, a set of nine apartments built-in 1995 that come with instructions for use.

The lofts have spherical rooms, undulating concrete floors riddled with bumps, and candy-colored walls. Poles and ladders run from floor to ceiling in unexpected places and electrical outlets dangle from above. Each apartment resembles a playground designed without regard for child safety regulations.

The concept behind the unconventional design is that inhabitants will be forced to use their brains and bodies in unusual ways in order to navigate the space. There is no chance of settling into routines and rote (habitual repitition ) movements, because the challenging architecture makes it impossible. The goal is to never become comfortable—comfort, according to Reversible Destiny’s philosophy, means death

Radiation Risk You Are Exposed To – How to Avoid it

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 12.58.26 PM

I have decided every Wednesday to offer you my idea of a good Christmas gift. I am going to do this till the end of the year. I am always looking for something different to give my friends so thought I might share this with you.

Why Smart Phones could cause cancer in Children and why this phone cover is the perfect gift For Christmas.

My Grandkids are definitely  getting this for Xmas

Some experts say no, others say our devices could be the Asbestos of the future

I was watching Dr Oz the other day and he had a pediatrician from Chicago on his program and she was saying that she feels our children are in danger from all our smart phones, tablets and computers. The amount of electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from these devices could put our children in danger of becoming ill in the future.

As she said nothing has yet been proved but believes that in 20 years time there could be a result from all this exposure.

It has been suggested that the radiation has caused cancer in adult. The scary thing is that the skull of children is so much thinner than adults which could be a real danger to them.

A survey was done by Dr Oz . Families were asked how many devices do your children have and 65% of those said their children had 2 or more devices.

What attracted my attention was that the pediatrician mentioned about the fact that not only do they put some of these devices to their ears most of them,  my grandchildren included, work with these devices on their laps which are close to their reproductive organs.

Apparently there is some regulation (FCC) about how much radiation these devices can emit  but at the same time we have increased the usage over the years.

Another factor is that because a child’s skull is thinner than an adult, their brain absorbs the electro magnetic radiation 10 times more than an adult.

Example that I took off the screen. Here we see the result of a 5 year old, 10 year old and an Adult.

Now that I find rather a major concern.You can watch this on DrOz.com

When it comes to radiation distance matters.
1. Keep the phone as far away from the body as possible
2. Don’t allow laptops or tablets to sit on lap
3. Adjust to airplane mode when not in use
4. Use the speaker phone
5. Text
6. Don’t sleep with your phone next to your head
7. Teenage girls –  do not put them in your bras
8. There is a cellphone case that helps with the protection of electromagnetic radiation.

This is my Christmas Gift suggestion Click on pictures to buy:-

4. A brand new study from San Diego State University sheds new light on this amazing process. The secret lies in one of your most underappreciated body fluids: mucus.
This slimy substance coating the inside of your mouth, nose, eyelids, digestive tract, lungs and other organs may turn out to play one of the most important roles in your immune system. You produce about a quart of mucus each day from your nose, throat and sinus, most of which you swallow.
For some time, researchers have known that mucus is loaded with viruses. many of these viruses to actually serve as immune helpers—not enemies—and an important part of your body’s defense system

Did You Know – 05/14/2012

Here are some amazing facts about our bodies.  New to me and maybe new to you. 

1. It’s possible for your body to survive without a surprisingly large fraction of its internal organs. Even if you lose your stomach, your spleen, 75% of your liver, 80% of your intestines, one kidney, one lung, and virtually every organ from your pelvic and groin area, you wouldn’t be very healthy, but you  would live.

2. 1. Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

3.  Scientists say the higher your I.Q. the more you dream. While this may be true, don’t take it as a sign you’re mentally lacking if you can’t recall your dreams. Most of us don’t remember many of our dreams and the average length of most dreams is only 2-3 seconds–barely long enough to register.

4. Every day the average person loses 60-100 strands of hair. Unless you’re already bald, chances are good that you’re shedding pretty heavily on a daily basis. Your hair loss will vary in accordance with the season, pregnancy, illness, diet and age.

5. The adrenal glands change size throughout life. The adrenal glands, lying right above the kidneys, are responsible for releasing stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. In the seventh month of a fetus’ development, the glands are roughly the same size as the kidneys. At birth, the glands have shrunk slightly and will continue to do so throughout life. In fact, by the time a person reaches old age, the glands are so small they can hardly be seen.

Feet have 500,000 sweat glands and can produce more than a pint of sweat a day.With that kind of sweat-producing power it’s no wonder that your gym shoes have a stench that can peel paint. Additionally, men usually have much more active sweat glands than women.

6. On any given day, sexual intercourse takes place 120 million times on earth. Humans are a quickly proliferating species, and with about 4% of the world’s population having sex on any given day, it’s no wonder that birth rates continue to increase in many places all over the world.

Your teeth start growing 6 months before you are born. While few babies are born with teeth in place, the teeth that will eventually push through the gums of young children are formed long before the child even leaves the womb. At 9 to 12 weeks the fetus starts to form the teeth buds that will turn into baby teeth.

7.  Your eyes are always the same size from birth but your nose and ears never stop growing. When babies look up at you with those big eyes, they’re the same size that they’ll be carrying around in their bodies for the rest of their lives. Their ears and nose, however, will grow throughout their lives and research has shown that growth peaks in seven year cycles.
