  1. If you want to get along with any dog all you have to do is put some of your saliva in your palm and have the dog lick your hand. By doing this you will instantly become friends with any dog. The reason for this is they like saliva is they like the enzymes in the saliva. All animals seek enzymes such as lions when capture their prey they always first start eating the internal organs. Eskimos who live insecurely cold areas where hardly any plants grow, always eat the internal organs of their captured seal first. Source Hiromi Shinya,MD

4. Mr. Allen Swift: Born – 1908 – Died 2010
This man owned and drove the same car for 82 years.
Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?
Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , Massachusetts ) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new – as a graduation gift in 1928.

He drove it up until his death in 2010… At the age of 102.
He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
82 years – That’s approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month).

1,070,000 that’s miles not kilometres.

4. 11 body fluids we couldn’t live without. Saliva, Urine, sweat, Bile, Blood, menstrual Fluid, Mucus, Pus, semen, tears, Vomitus.

a. Bile – bile salts, which function like soap to break down dietary fats, enabling them and fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D and E to be absorbed. They also help to prevent the cholesterol-containing bile in the gallbladder from forming gallstones.
b. Blood – contains cell fragments called platelets and clotting factors that help to seal leaks that may develop in blood vessels.
c. Menstrual fluid – menstrual fluid is one of the body fluids with the strongest psychological and cultural overtones
d. Mucus – keeps the lining of the respiratory system from drying out and also filters out dust and infectious agents in the air we breathe.
e. Pus – Pus under the skin is often found in a pimple, but deeper in the body a larger collection is known as an abscess. Pimples and abscesses represent the body’s attempt to contain the spread of an infection
f. Semen – Contains fructose, a sugar that nourishes the sperm, as well as alkaline secretions that help to neutralize the normally acidic environment of the vagina.
g. Saliva – contains antibacterial enzymes and antibodies, as well as mucus itself. Saliva helps to moisten food, which is important to lubricate chewing and swallowing. It also enhances taste, because if the chemicals in food were not in a liquid medium, they could not be detected by taste receptors.
h.Sweat – Most important role is thermoregulation, helping to cool the body when it begins to overheat.
I.Tears – serve three functions: to lubricate the eye, to remove irritants such as smoke (and a sulfuric acid-producing chemical from cut onions) and in association with emotional states such as sorrow and joy.
J. Urine – Average adult produces about 1.5 liters of urine per day. Produced by the kidneys and stored by the bladder, urine contains many substances that must be removed from the body to maintain a state of health. These include the breakdown products of protein metabolism, which would become toxic if they were allowed to accumulate in the blood. Urine also serves as the principal means for removing excess salt and water from the body.
K. Vomitus – vomiting purges the body of toxins

1. Four cups of coffee a day could lower your chances of getting the deadly melanoma by 20% according to new research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The Caffeine and polyphenols are credited with the suppression of UV-induced tumor growth. Note to all my friends that have decaf – It does not offer the same benefits.

2. Researchers asked people detailed questions about a film they had just seen. Those who were instructed to shut their eyes when questioned  correctly answered 23%  more than those who kept their lids open. 

The interesting part is that closing your eyes lowers your brains cognitive load by blocking out distractions. That helps you focus on the task of remembering.

3. Dry mouth can be a tooth-ache pain culprit – The saliva in your mouth helps neutralize acids in the mouth that can erode enamel and can lead to the dreaded toothache. Solution seems to be the old saying ‘Drink plenty of water’. I am sure you have heard that one over and over again.

4. Kill that bacteria that is the cause of swimmers ear.

My son and grandson have had this problem for years because they are water animals and love surfing and are in the pool all summer so I know this is a painful problem. Now we have the solution.

Vinegar acidifies the external auditory canal, killing the bacteria that causes the problem. 

Dilute white vinegar with an equal amount of distilled water and using an eye dropper put 3 drops in the affected ear 3 times daily .

Use, instead of ‘Over the counter’ products that dry out the ear canal. Get someone to put the drops in your ear so you don’t miss.

2. Unless food is mixed with saliva you can’t taste it.
Chemoreceptors in the taste buds of your tongue require a liquid medium in order for the flavors to bind into the receptor molecules. If you don’t have liquid, you won’t see results. Now, technically you can use water for this purpose rather than saliva. However, saliva contains amylase, an enzyme that acts on sugars and other carbohydrates, so without saliva sweet and starchy foods may taste different from what you expect.

Health Benefits Of Xylitol – Save On Dentist Bills!

Have you heard of Xylitol? I recently learned about the health benefits of Xylitol from Healthy Body. I had never heard of it before and found the information very interesting. I then investigated it to verify the claims and information. What I found were a lot of positive articles about this substance.

Xylitol could save you on dental bills and, of course, saving is what we are all about. The following article ties together my research from several sources. Initially Xylitol was used on teeth; however, that there are now experiments beginning conducted in an attempt to prove that it is also beneficial for bone density and the skin.

Xylitol is found in chewing gum and some candies. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, it is produced in small amounts by the human body, and has a wide variety of uses and benefits, from improving the health of your teeth to maintaining upper respiratory health.

Unlike sugar, Xylitol does not get absorbed into the body fully. It does not cause a surge in blood sugar like sugar does. It is sweet, like sugar and of course ideal for diabetics and those watching their carbohydrate intake.

The Harvard School of Dental Medicine considers Xylitol as the safer sweetener after more than 1,500 scientific studies in individuals, which stopped their sugar cravings after substituting sugar with this sweetener. Participants also reduced their insulin levels, and alkalinized their bodies.

If you have ever eaten Xylitol you probably have had a cooling sensation in your mouth. It is like the temperature in the mouth suddenly decreasing. This cooling of the mouth causes the saliva production to increase and causes the ph of saliva to grow.

Increased saliva in a natural form cleanses and protects the teeth.

Because Xylitol increases the level of acidity in the mouth, teeth can freely pass remineralization process. This means that your teeth can actually build their own backup. New Cavities may be prevented from forming. Small cavity surface, which is only in the enamel may disappear completely after consistent use over time.

Xylitol also inhibits the growth of the primary degradation bacteria that like to colonize in the mouth and leads to decay. Xylitol does not allow the bacteria to attach itself to the teeth as plaque. It separates the plaque from the teeth.

Bacteria will still be alive in the saliva but cannot do more harm than when it is attached to the teeth.

Bone Health

Xylitol health benefits also include the bones, mostly because of the re-mineralization effects mentioned above. Patients with osteoporosis are often encouraged to ingest small amounts of Xylitol to help strengthen bones and increase bone density. Although these studies are not yet proof, they do suggest that this substance is effective.

Skin Health
Studies indicate that Xylitol consumption increases skin thickness and collagen content in animals. Skin lotions that contain Xylitol, have been shown to reduce bacteria and increase dermal hydration, with its high moisture affinity.
