Nutrition Ingredients Fish Oil


Fish oil is good for growth and development of your baby. Yes, although belonging to the family-oil, fish oil for frying, but not a "food" source of additional nutrients. In fact, fish oil, including fatty food sources are low in cholesterol, so the nutrition and health experts agreed to give the label "safe" for consumption by infants, toddlers, and adults.Although a good nutritional value, but the oil content in the fish is determined by several factors, namely species of fish, sex, age (maturity level), season, egg-laying cycle, and geographical waters where the fish live.Why better?In fact, the kind of fatty acids in fish oil are three, namely: * Unsaturated fatty acids (no double bonds in the carbon chain), such as palmitic. * Unsaturated fatty acids only (have one double bond in the carbon chain), for example oleic. * Unsaturated fatty acid double (no more than one double bond in the carbon chain), for example linoleic, linolenic, eikosapentanoat acid (EPA), and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).All you need to know, the longer the carbon chain to a type of fatty acid and the greater number of double bonds in the constituent carbon chain, the fatty acids will become "rich" health benefits.Fish oil is one that contains the nutrient-rich fatty acids that benefit, because it contains approximately 25% of saturated fat and 75% unsaturated fatty acids. Acids polyunsaturated fats (polyunsaturated fatty acids / PUFAs) in it will help the process of developing growing brain (intelligence), and the development of sight and the immune system infants and toddlers.There are 2 kinds of famous PUFAs, namely DHA and EPA, which combined both the configuration of carbon atoms known as omega-3. Marine fish species that "rich" content of omega-3 include salmon, tuna (blue fin tuna in particular, yellow fin tuna and Albacore), sardines, herring, mackerel, and shellfish.Fish oil also contains vitamins A and D, two types of vitamins are fat soluble-high amounts. Benefits of vitamin A helps the process of eye development, while vitamin D for the process of growth and formation of strong bones. Well, two levels of this vitamin in the body of the fish will increase with increasing age. Generally, levels of vitamin A in fish oils ranging 1000-1000000 SI (International Standard) per gram, while vitamin D is approximately 50-30000 SI per gram.How much should be consumed?Fish oil consumption infants and toddlers per day based on body weight. For example, if your child's weight 10 kg, he's pretty much consuming fish oil one teaspoon per day. If the weight is more than 10 kg, use a tablespoon measure, because the number of their needs will also increase.Actually, there are easy ways set the dose of fish oil consumption for children. Just follow the existing rules in the package. Syrup fish oil products for children on the market generally has been added nutrients other, so the size of the recommended dose had been adjusted between the nutrients available to the needs of children. However, if you feel the need, it's good when it consulted on your child's doctor.Which is also worth noting is the way fish oil storage. Given the process of fat oxidation that can damage the quality of fish oil could occur anywhere (as a result become rancid), keep the fish oil in a sealed container and place in a cool place.[...]

Swine influenza


(image) Swine influenza (also called swine flu, hog flu and pig flu) is an infection by any one of several specific types of swine influenza virus that is usually hosted by (is endemic in) pigs. People who work with pigs, especially people with intense exposures, are at increased risk of catching swine flu.
Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. There is no vaccine available right now to protect against swine flu.
Take these everyday steps to protect your health and lessen the spread of this new virus:
* Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
* Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
* Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
* If you are sick with a flu-like illness, stay home for 7 days after your symptoms begin or until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours, whichever is longer. This is to keep from infecting others and spreading the virus further.
* Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.

Enthusiasm is the sunshine of your mind’s garden. Possessing enthusiasm for all that you do is essential to the process of positive thinking. Just as plants require sunlight to develop and grow, utilizing the power of positive thinking requires enthusiasm to energize your potential and ensure an endless supply of fuel.
You will discover that the more enthusiasm you generate, the more energy you’ll have to put in.
There are some things it will be easy to generate enthusiasm over, and others where you’ll have to stretch yourself to find what will spark your enjoyment.
For example, no one has trouble generating enthusiasm for spending an unexpected bonus from work or taking a night out. However, you may find it hard to get excited about washing dishes or filling out your income tax forms. But part of the magic of positive thinking is developing the ability to find the good things in any situation and use them to get through the difficult parts.
Like developing a positive mindset, enthusiasm must be cultivated and sheltered from potentially damaging emotional storms. There are several methods you can use to put a dose of passion into everything you do, whether it’s finally taking that dream vacation or scrubbing out the basement. You can choose the method that best fits whatever situation you’re facing and ensure yourself the energy to tackle anything life happens to throw at you.

One of the most elemental solutions for finding enthusiasm is to focus on the benefit you will derive from completing a particular task. In some situations it’s easy to discover the benefit. For instance, you may hate wrapping presents, but you know the person you’re giving the present to will be overjoyed when presented with this lovely paper-wrapped gift, and so you derive happiness from envisioning the recipient opening the present.

If you’re having trouble summoning enthusiasm for a particular task, try to seek out someone who enjoys doing that sort of thing and ask them to partner up with you.
Like smiling, enthusiasm is contagious. If you spend some time observing another person’s enthusiasm, some of it is bound to rub off on you.

Transform your mental, physical and emotional tension


Some strategies that can help transform mental, physical and emotional tension into creative and effective energy.

- Take time to be alone regularly, listen to your heart, check your intentions, re-evaluate your goals and activities.
- Simplify your life, start eliminating trivial things and don't make major minor things.
- Take deep, slow breaths frequently, especially while on the phone, in the car or waiting. Use any opportunity to relax and revitalize yourself.
- Plan to do something each day that brings you joy, something just for you.
- When you're concerned about something, talk it over with someone you trust, or write down your feelings.
- Say 'No' in a firm but kind way when asked to do something you really don't want to do.
- Exercise regularly, stretching releases tension.
- Remember, it takes less energy to get an unpleasant task done 'right now' than to worry about it all day.
- Take time to be with nature, people, music and children. Even in the city, noticing the seasonal changes of the sky or watching people's faces can bring inner harmony.
- Practise consciously doing one thing at a time, keeping your mind focused on the present. Do whatever you're doing more slowly, more intentionally and with more awareness and respect.
- Choose not to waste your life on guilt about the past or concern for the future.
- Learn a variety of relaxation techniques and practice meditation regularly.
- When angry, ask yourself 'what can i learn from this?'. Anyone or anything that can make you angry is showing you how you let yourself to be controlled by expectations of how someone or something should be. When we accept others, ourselves and situations for what they are, we become more effective in influencing them to change in the way that we'd like them to.
- Be more aware of the demands you place on yourself, your environment and on others to be different from how they are. Demands cause tremendous stress.
- If your schedule is busy, prioritise.. do the most important ones first.
- Organize your life to include time for fun, spontaneity and open spaces. Set a realistic schedule allowing some transition time between activities. Eliminate unnecessary commitments.
- Smile and laugh more and be kinder to yourself and others.
- Learn to delegate responsibility.
- Monitor your intake of sugar, salt, caffeine and alcohol.
- Welcome change as an opportunity and a challenge to learn and grow.

Positive thinking benefit


Here's a few of the ways positive thinking can benefit our career:
- Recognition: When you practice positive thinking, you become more vibrant and alive than you have ever been. You will find that your efforts are recognized and rewarded more often, particularly when you are not expecting recognition. Simply performing your work with a positive attitude to the best of your abilities will make you stand out.

- Promotions and Raises: Those with can-do attitudes advance far faster in the workplace. Using the power of positive thinking increases your confidence and demonstrates your capabilities to handle greater responsibility; and those above you at work will notice and treat you accordingly. You will not only be offered more opportunity; you will find yourself seeking advancement and fulfillment rather than simply waiting for the day to end so you can return to your “real” life. Your career will become a part of what defines you instead of a means of survival that you just “get through.”

- Better Working Environment: You may recall that positive thinking is contagious. Working with a pleasant attitude will improve the attitudes of those around you, or at least your perceptions of them. You will begin to notice that your workday no longer drags you down as you derive pleasure from your accomplishments and enjoy the company of your co-workers.

- Less Supervision: Most of us know what it’s like to have a supervisor breathing down our necks. When we move to a positive mindset, we showcase our abilities to complete work satisfactorily without excessive direction (or interference). Left to our own devices, we will accomplish far more and this will become evident to even the most anal of supervisors.

- Dream Job: With positive thinking, you can live your dreams. Whether you choose to seek a new career or transform the job you have into the job you love, you will soon find your career providing everything you imagine it to be.

- Entrepreneurship: Many people long to go into business for themselves, but most fear the consequences of losing the safety and security of working for someone else. Positive thinking frees you from your fear of change, and equips you with the tools you need to not only take steps toward working for yourself, but carry your entrepreneurial vision to success. Whatever your reasons for wanting your own business, you can use positive thinking to bypass the pitfalls that plague most beginning business ventures and realize your dreams of self-employment.

- New opportunities: Positive thinking allows you to visualize possibilities you would have otherwise missed. As you get to know yourself, your beliefs and your desires; you will better understand what you’re looking for in a career. You will also have the ability to discover the means to achieve what you want, whether it is improving your current job, getting a promotion or new position, or heading off on your own. There is no limit to the opportunities awaiting you through the power of positive thinking.

Positive think


You Know You’re a Positive Thinker When:

- Your grueling drive to work goes by so quickly, you wonder why it ever bothered you in the first place.

- The clerk at the grocery store gives you the wrong change, you point it out with a smile and she happily corrects the mistake.

- You waited in line at the bank for twenty-five minutes on your lunch hour...and your life didn’t end.

- The new part for your car finally arrived at the garage after a week on backorder, but it was the wrong one. You were so nice about accepting the delay when the garage called that they offered you a substantial discount on your repair bill.

- Every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror, you’re smiling and you don’t think you look like a moron.

- You put the oven on too high and burned dinner...then wound up having something even better than you’d planned.

- Suddenly you have a lot more free time on your hands, and plenty of things to do with it- plus enough energy to do them.

- The last time you thought the word can’t was in the phrase I can’t believe all these great things are happening to me.

Positive thinking has the power to change your life, as long as you believe it does. As you continue to use positive thinking techniques, you will find you don’t have to put much effort into achieving what you want.



Here are some of the realization and insights to open doors in your life.

- You have to have a dream , to have a dream come true and without dreams all you have is reality.

- Believing in your dream is an essential component and often the only foundation you have for supporting your dream.

- You are never given a dream without the ability to make it come true. Your ability includes your willingness to do what it takes.

- What you seek is seeking you and exists within you. Every resource you need is available to you.

- There is often lag time between dreaming your dream and making it happen. This is a crucial time to stay more focused and committed to your dream than to your reality.

On the other side of your fears are great teachings. Learn to hang in there and take a closer look. Fear is a great teacher and often provides a wake up call. Use what you learn as soon as possible.

- There are signs everywhere showing you which way to go. Learn to read them and use your dream of guidance.

- When you really believe that something probably will happen, it probably will. Committed is the key.

- As you complete your dream, It's time for another one. Don't ever be afraid to reach the finish line. There's always another dream available, if that's what you want.

- Be willing to trust your intuition and act on your insights.

Self Improvement Program


1. Know your purpose

Are you wandering through life with little direction - hoping that you'll find happiness, health and prosperity? Identify your life purpose or mission statement and you will have your own unique compass that will lead you to your truth north every time.

2. Know your values
What do you value most? Make a list of your top 5 values. Some examples are security, freedom, family, spiritual development, learning. As you set your goals for 2009 - check your goals against your values. If the goal doesn't align with any of your top five values - you may want to reconsider it or revise it.

The number shouldn't discourage you, instead it should motivate you to do more than you can ever dreamed of.

3. Know your needs
Unmet needs can keep you from living authentically. Take care of yourself.

Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be right, to be in control, to be loved? There are so many people who lived their lives without realizing their dreams and most of them end up being stressed or even depressed for that matter. List your top four needs and get them met before it's too late!

4. Know your passions

You know who you are and what you truly enjoy in life. Obstacles like doubt and lack of enthusiasm will only hinder you, but will not derail your chance to become the person you ought to be. Express yourself and honor the people who has inspired you to become the very person you wanted to be.

5. Live from the inside out

Increase your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to quiet your distracted mind. For most of us city slickers it's hard to even find the peace and quiet we want even in our own home. In my case I often just sit in a dimly lit room and play some classical music. There's sound, yes, but music does soothe the savage beast.

6. Honor your strengths

What are your positive traits? What special talents do you have? List three - if you get stuck, ask those closest to you to help identify these. Are you imaginative, witty, good with your hands? Find ways to express your authentic self through your strengths. You can increase your self-confidence when you can share what you know to others.

7. Serve others
When you live authentically, you may find that you develop an interconnected sense of being. When you are true to who you are, living your purpose and giving of your talents to the world around you, you give back in service what you came to share with others -your spirit - your
essence. The rewards for sharing your gift with those close to you is indeed rewarding, much more if it were to be the eyes of a stranger who can appreciate what you have done to them.
Self-improvement is indeed one type of work that is worth it. It shouldn't always be within the confines of an office building, or maybe in the four corners of your own room. The difference lies within ourselves and how much we want to change for the better.

Stress Relief


Here are some steps you can take toward relieving stress:1. Don’t just sit there.Move! According to many psychologists, motion creates emotion. You might notice that when you are idle, it’s easier to become depressed. Your heart rate slows down, less oxygen travels to your brain, and you are slumped somewherein a chair blocking air from reaching your lungs. I challenge you right now, regardless of how you are feeling, to get up and walk around at a fast tempo.Maybe you might want to go to an empty room and jump up and down a little bit. It may sound silly but the results speak for themselves. Try it now for a few minutes. It works like magic.Exercise can be a great stress buster. People with anxiety disorders might worry that aerobic exercise could bring on a panic attack. After all, when you exercise, your heart rate goes up, you begin to sweat, and your breathing becomes heavier.Don’t panic – it’s not an attack! Tell yourself this over and over while you’re exercising. Realize that there’s a big difference between the physical side of exercise and what happens when you exercise.2. Smell the roses.How do you smell the roses? How about investing some money to go on that one trip you’ve been dreaming about? Visit a country with lots of exotic places to jolt your imagination and spur your creativity. You need to detach from your daily activities and venture a little bit.3. Help others cope with their problems.It is very therapeutic when you engross yourself in helping others. You will be surprised how many people’s problems are worse than those you may be facing. You can offer others assistance in countless ways. Don’tcurl up in your bed and let depression and stress take hold of you.Get out and help somebody. But be careful. Don’t get caught up in other people’s problems in an attempt to forget about your own.I am constantly being called by friends and family when they want to vent or get advice. I joke and tell them “Don’t call the ‘crazy’ person for advice!” But there are times that I find myself worrying about the ones who call me and I get caught up in what they’re going through. This just gives me more stress than I already have and I find that I have to step away and re-assess myself and my priorities.I’m now to the point where I can tell them that I just can’t deal with it right now and to call back later.Sometimes, they get upset, but more often than not, they understand. But I’ve learned not to get too upset about their reactions. If it won’t matter in a week, it should matter right now.4. Laugh a little.By now you’ve heard that laughter is a good internal medicine. It relieves tension and loosens the muscles. It causes blood to flow to the heart and brain. More importantly, laughter releases a chemical that rids the body of pains.Every day, researchers discover new benefits of laughter. Let me ask you this question: “Can you use a good dose of belly-shaking laughter every now and then?” Of course you can. What you are waiting for? Go a comedy club or rent some funny movies.5. Wear your knees out.If there were one sustainable remedy I could offer you when the going gets tough, it would be prayer. Many people, depending on their faith, might call it meditation. It doesn’t matter to me what you call it, as long as you have a place to run to.6. Make stress your friendAcknowledge that stress is good and make stress your friend! Based on the body’s natural “fight or flight” response that burst of energy will enhance your performance at the right moment. I’ve yet to see a top sportsman totally relaxed before a big competition. Use stress wisely to push yours[...]

Quick start guide to raise your self-esteem


Here are several tips on how to start.1. Try to stop thinking negative thoughts about yourself. If you're used to focusing on your shortcomings, start thinking about positive aspects of yourself that outweigh them. When you catch yourself being too critical, counter it by saying something positive about yourself. Each day, write down three things about yourself that make you happy.2. Aim for accomplishments rather than perfection. Some people become paralyzed by perfection. Instead of holding yourself back with thoughts like, "I won't audition for the play until I lose 10 pounds," think about what you're good at and what you enjoy, and go for it. 3. View mistakes as learning opportunities. Accept that you will make mistakes because everyone does. Mistakes are part of learning. Remind yourself that a person's talents are constantly developing, and everyone excels at different things — it's what makes people interesting. 4. Try new things. Try experimenting with different activities that will help you get in touch with your talents. Then take pride in new skills you develop. 5. Recognize what you can change and what you can't. If you realize that you're unhappy with something about yourself that you can change, and then start today. If it's something you can't change (like your height), then start to work toward loving yourself the way you are. 6. Set goals. Think about what you'd like to accomplish, and then make a plan for how to do it. Stick with your plan and keep track of your progress. 7. Exercise! You'll relieve stress, and be healthier and happier. 8. Have fun. Ever found yourself thinking stuff like "I'd have more friends if I were thinner"? Enjoy spending time with the people you care about and doing the things you love. Relax and have a good time — and avoid putting your life on hold.9. Use the 10 minute technique.  People with poor self-esteem often fail to give themselves enough time and space. So find 10 minutes every day to be alone and to just sit and do nothing. Some people find it helpful to close their eyes and imagine a country scene or the sight and sound of waves gently lapping against the seashore. During these 10 minutes, allow yourself to feel peaceful and happy. Enjoy this time. It is yours - and yours alone. And you deserve it.  Finding 10 minutes for you is a caring thing to do and you will feel better for doing it.10. Act confidently. People will sense your self-confidence and respond positively to you, strengthening your image and self-image all at once.11. Practice breathing easily, freely and deeply and then think of it. It implicitly says you should believe in yourself and do it without any help from others, this in turn enhances your self-esteem.12. Think back to when you did something new for the first time.  Learning something new is often accompanied by feelings of nervousness, lack of self belief and high stress levels, all of which are necessary parts of the learning process. The next time you feel under-confident, remembering this will remind you that it's perfectly normal - you're just learning!13. Do something you’re good at.  How about swimming, running, dancing, cooking, gardening, climbing, painting, writing… If possible, it should be something that holds your attention and requires enough focus to get you into that state of 'flow' where you forget about everything else. You will feel more competent, accomplished and capable afterwards, great antidotes to low self esteem!  And while you're at it, seriously consider doing something like this at least once a week. People who experience 'flow' regularly seem to be happier and healthie[...]

"Know Your Enemy"


Isn't about Sun Tzu's The Art of War, it’s about our lifestyle.If we did not put attention to our lifestyle it can be our most terrifying enemy someday, it can torture our body anytime and anywhere before killing us with painfully.Here's some of our “lifestyle” enemy:- Smoking: The risks of lung cancer due to tobacco smoke are too great to ignore. A person smoking one pack a day has increased their odds for getting lung cancer by 30x or more when compared to a nonsmoker. And, the more cigarettes you smoke every day, the greater those odds become. Plus, the number of years a person smokes continually increases their chances of developing lung cancer, but not only does it affect the lungs, it can cause kidney, pancreatic, cervical, and stomach cancers and acute myeloid leukemia. Quitting smoking immediately decreases your risk factor for cancer.- Food: Do you like hotdogs, doughnuts, french fries, processed meats and bacon, and chips / crackers / cookies? Well, those are some short list of foods that should be avoided. As most people give themselves cancer through the foods, drinks and products they choose to consume, it is important to know that the key to avoiding cancer-causing foods is knowing which ingredients are carcinogens. A diet composed of fruits, vegetables, and fibers are important in promoting overall health and preventing cancer. Vegetables are effective cancer fighters. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a substance that is essential in fighting certain kinds of cancer, while broccoli is contains sulforaphane, another anti-cancer compound. Cauliflower, celery, lentils, peas and other vegetables also possess anti-cancer properties.- Physical Activity: Reduction of excess body fat plays a vital role in maintaining good health and avoiding disease. Medical evidence shows that obesity poses a significant threat to health as well as to longevity. Excess body fat is connected to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, gall bladder disease, gastro-intestinal disease, sexual dysfunction, osteoarthritis, stroke and overweight people often also have high cholesterol levels, making them more likely to develop arteriosclerosis. When blood vessels are so narrow that vital organs like the heart, kidneys or brain don’t get enough blood, this becomes life-threatening. Exercise like yoga, aerobics, walking and running are great activities to prevent diseases and reduces the chances of becoming obese.- Sex Activity: Sexually Transmitted Diseases are diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites. It can easily be transmitted through body contact during sex. There are at least 25 different sexually transmitted diseases that can be spread during sexual contact, especially during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Sometimes, it takes a long time to detect since some of the symptoms may appear only when the disease is in the advanced stages. The following are some of the most common sexually transmitted diseases that affect individuals who engage in unprotected sex: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Bacterial Vaginosis, Crabs or Pubic Lice, Epididymitis, Genital Herpes, Genital Warts, Gut Infections, Hepatitis, Molluscum, Non-Specific Urethritis, Scabies, Syphilis, Thrush, Trichomonas Vaginosis, and Balanitis. Practicing unsafe sex can also increase your risk of developing a virus called HPV. HPV is a group of over 100 viruses, medically known as human papillioma virus. HPV increases your risk factor for cervical, anal, vulva and vaginal cancer. Indeed, sex is a natural human activity that should be openly discussed. One must learn to practice a positive and respectful approach to sexuality[...]

Gardening Tips


Some gardening tips :- Don’t put houseplants in direct sunlight. Although houseplants should have some light, their leaves will wilt if left directly exposed to the sun.- Get a pad to kneel on when you’re working in the garden. The pad will protect your knees and limit how dirty you get.- If you’re not sure what you want the layout of your garden to be, plant in pots so you can move plants around until you’re happy.- Water features in the garden need to be kept fresh. Install plants like water violet to keep the water oxygenated.- Soak eggshells in water overnight and then use the solution as a fertilizer. The solution will be full of nutrients from the eggshells.- Never plant anything under conifers because those particular trees cause the soil to become acidic. Plants around conifers would not grow.- Make sure any extras in your garden, washing lines for example, are properly installed so they are unlikely to disturb the equilibrium in your garden.- Use climbers to cover ugly walls and shed that have become an eyesore in your otherwise gorgeous garden.- Try to keep a garden diary. That way you’ll remember what you planted before, notice any patterns and be able to plan for the future.- Don’t plant too many plants in one area. Competition for resources will cause growth of poorquality plants.- Glossy leaves reflect light so it is better to place plants with glossy leaves in shadowy corners to make your garden look bigger. They’ll thrive there too.- Just because you live in the city doesn't mean you can't have a garden. These flowering plants are known to survive and thrive in most cities with extremely hot temperatures and high pollution: Madagascar periwinkle, lantana, impatiens, cosmos, cleome (spider flower) and canna (Indian flag).- Make your garden more fragrant by planting more lightly colored or white flowers. You can also give your garden a rich fragrant smell by adding thick-textured flowers such as gardenia, citrus and magnolia, which have very distinctive and intense scents.- Always keep air vents clear, so don’t plant climbers, bushes or trees anywhere that could possibly obstruct them. If they’re already there, cut them back as soon as they begin to obstruct the vents.- Recycle your used teabags as a source of nutrients for your plants. The contents can provide a welcome change for the soil and help plant growth.- Open the greenhouse via the door or windows for at least two hours a day. It recycles the air and gets rid of any excess heat.- Use a pitchfork to aerate the lawn regularly. This helps natural drainage and also encourages movement of insects beneath the ground.- If you don’t have much time for gardening, stick to plants in containers, such as tubs, boxes and baskets. They are easier to feed and tend if you have a busy lifestyle.- Never re-pot in a pot that is too big. If the roots don’t grow quickly enough, the new compost sours and becomes unusable for the plant.- If you’re buying ready-potted plants of flowers, make sure that they have already begun to flower; otherwise there is a risk that they may never flower at all.- Add compost to your garden soil two to four weeks before you plant. This way, the compost will be integrated within your garden soil.[...]

Properly Ventilate Your Home to Promote Sound Health



Recent studies have demonstrated that the air inside many homes is far more polluted and contaminated than is the air to be found on the streets of many major cities. Airborne contaminants that can oftentimes be found in a person’s home can cause serious health consequences for people left breathing these pollutants over an extended (or even fairly short) period of time.

The basic step that you need to take in order to ensure that in-home air contaminants are kept to a minimum is to make sure you have sound and solid ventilation. Ventilate your house properly. If air is not recycled, germs circulate and you may find yourself ill.

In this day and age, many people rarely crack open a window in their homes. (In many
high-rise residential properties it actually is impossible to open a window.) In the summer,

people have their air conditioners running and in the winter, people keep their houses sealed tight to keep the cold out. With that said, you actually are well served to air out your home whenever possible.

In addition to simply opening up windows as much as possible, you should seriously consider installing a system in your home that allows for the circulation of fresh air into and through the house. You need to keep in mind that while some air-conditioning and even some heating systems do include this circulatory capacity, many such systems simply do not.

By ensuring that fresh, clean air regularly is circulated through your home, by ensuring that you have a solid ventilation system, you will make great strides towards reducing germs, bacteria and other harmful pollutants from the air in your home. In the end, you and your family will enjoy better health and a better overall wellbeing.

It's coffee time..


Coffee is a widely-consumed stimulant beverage prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant.
The coffee bean itself contains a number of benefits to health. It appears to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, heart disease, diabetes mellitus type 2, cirrhosis of the liver and gout. Some health effects of coffee are due to its caffeine content, as the benefits are only observed in those who drink caffeinated coffee, while others appear to be due to other components. For example, the antioxidants in coffee prevent free radicals from causing cell damage.
Coffee's negative health effects are mostly due to its caffeine content. Caffeine can wreak havoc on the nervous system, but that does not make it synonymous with coffee. Different kinds of coffee (all prepared differently) will yield varied levels of caffeine content. Serving size also comes into play. To those sensitive to caffeine, the obvious alternative can be found in decaffeinated coffee. But such an alternative could downplay the positive affects of the drink. Coffee is rich in the B vitamin niacin; and in recent studies has been shown to have antioxidant-like effects on the body by eliminating free radicals. As a caution, these benefits only arise with a balanced drinking habit. Too much cream and sugar can prove to be detrimental, while too much coffee poses many long-term hazards. While coffee may provide the B vitamin niacin, it in turn restricts the body from other vitamins. And depending on the brew, coffee contains acids that have been linked to stomach ulcers. Symptoms like these may sound off-putting, but they exist only in the long run for an abusive drinker. A daily cup poses no threat to the average person.
Coffee may be presented in a variety of ways. Drip brewed, percolated, or French-pressed/cafetière coffee may be served with no additives or sugar (colloquially known as black) , or with either milk, cream, or both. When served cold, it is called iced coffee.

Here's my favourite Arabian Coffee recipe:
1/2 litre (about 1 pint) water
3 tablespoons coffee
3 tablespoons (or more) sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Cardamom
1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla sugar
How To:
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and heat until foam gathers on top. Do not pass through
a filter. Stir it up before you serve it.
