Did You Know – 11/12/2018

  1. Stress – 62% of workers think their social media use can cause stress and affect their performance. 1 in 5 workers experience stress after receiving  a friend request from their boss. Spending time on social media can take time and energy away from work, and that can cause stress. I would have thought that solution would have been easy,  don’t spend time on social media while at work

 

2. Viagra can make you color blind – This is not a worry for normal doses. Taking too much can affect the cones of the eyes that help you see color. One case as example is that a 31-year-old man saw re for nearly a year.

 

3. Over 53 drugs interact with Grapefruit juice – Grapefruit contains a chemical that can affect how medicines are absorbed. eg too much statins or too little antihistamines of what you need and can have harmful consequences.

 

4. Don’t follow-up your pills with mouth wash – some antibiotics can react negatively  with alcohol which is an ingredient of mouth wash. Metronildazole given for dental infections, taken in conjunction with alcohol may cause stomach pains, nausea, headaches. flushing and sometimes vomiting.

5.  Dont lie down for about an hour after taking tablets – It slows down the pill’s ability to reach the stomach.

Rosemary And Its Medicinal Properties

I actually got this information from a Magazine called “Freedom Leaf“. It is a magazine that is promoting the reform of medicinal use of marijuana.
Wether you agree with legalizing Marijuana or not it actually has some good arguments and ideas, one of them was this list of uses of Rosemary.
They are not just promoting cannabis they are also promoting the health benefits of most herbs and as they say the more we use herbs in our everyday life the healthier we will become.

DO NOT wash your hair in the shower!
It’s so good to Finally get a health warning that is useful!

IT INVOLVES THE SHAMPOO WHEN IT RUNS DOWN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SHOWER WITH IT. WARNING TO US ALL!

Shampoo Warning! I don’t know WHY I didn’t figure this out sooner. I use shampoo in the shower. When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed Very Clearly on the shampoo label is the Warning, “FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME.” No Wonder I have been gaining weight! Well, I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn Dishwashing Soap. It’s label reads, “DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE.”

Cindy’s at Bastrop near Austin was having a charity bike wash this weekend. The girls were fun and playing it up and we had lots of laughs. The girls offered their services for free and all the money went to the local Fire Fighters.
