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.

Poem Friday – 09/02/2015 – Please help them heal

P1240257-002

Please Lord Help Them Heal

As I look outside to a magnificent day
Why can’t we just feel the peace and just so enjoy it in every way

Why is it that there is such grief and lives taken away
Why do we have things happen to make that blue sky seem dark and so grey

More people killed more children dead
Killed by a yellow belly, screwed up in the head

The pain felt by those loved ones left behind
The inner heart ache, too hard to imagine, crippling destruction to the mind

Just a small town, peaceful not a gun to be found
For everyone that lives there this whole scenario does confound

There was no protection for those in that town as that coward knew
His evil he put into action as his hatred grew

So my point is here, guns you may not approve and totally dislike
But had that security officer been armed, the coward may not been able to strike

I don’t know that cowards name and don’t care to know
But if there is a ‘Hell’ that is where he will go

The anger the sadness that the country does feel
Please help those Loved ones Lord, Please help them heal

Lung_nodule

1. The human lungs contain approximately 2,400 kilometers (1,500 mi) of airways and 300 to 500 million hollow cavities, having a total surface area of about 70 square meters, roughly the same area as one side of a tennis court. Furthermore, if all of the capillaries that surround the lung cavities were unwound and laid end to end, they would extend for about 992 kilometers. Also, your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart.
