Food That Helps Your Body

Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear.And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could actually improve your hearing.That’s because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.


Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana.The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan.Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin.This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production.Higher levels are associated with better moods.


Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of cancer cells.Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing the disease.Last year, a team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent.In Britain , prostate cancer kills one man every hour


Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach.So it’s interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion.The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness.But the benefits could go much further.Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumours


A nice ‘holey’ cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it even resembles their internal structure.And like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life.Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to ‘power’ muscles.Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones.A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg – equal to an extra two slices of cheddar - boosted their bone density by six per cent.


The stir-fry favourite bears an uncanny resemblance to the images we see of ‘swimming’ sperm trying to fertilise an egg. And research from the US suggests they could play an important part in boosting male fertility.A study at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio showed that to make healthy sperm in large quantities, the body needs a good supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against damage by harmful molecules called free radicals.Just half a cup of bean sprouts provides 16 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for a man.It’s not just dad but baby too who could benefit.Bean sprouts are packed with folate, a vitamin that prevents neural tube defects, where the baby is born with a damaged brain or spine.


OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli.These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.One reason that very premature
babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy.A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema.Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.


A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart.Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers.The Women’s Health Study — an American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women — found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart disease than women who had very little lycopene.Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol.One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was “convincing evidence’ that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.


THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain - and provide a clue to the benefits.Walnuts are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.They may also help head off dementia. An American study found that walnut extract broke down the protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats

Daddy, may I please borrow Rs.50???

Hard workers...Don't miss this...Read It Completely.....An unwise investment!!!.............

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"

DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?" replied the man.

SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"

DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.

SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"

DAD: "If you must know, I make Rs.100 an hour."

"Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down.Looking up, he said,"Daddy, may I please borrow Rs.50?"

The father was furious, "If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, Then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior."

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started

To think:Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that Rs.50 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

"Are you asleep, son?" He asked."No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,"said the man.

"It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the Rs.50 you asked for.

"The little boy sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you daddy!" He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

"Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the father grumbled.

"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.

"Daddy, I have Rs.100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

Lesson to learn from Heart Touching Story:

But even better, share Rs.100 worth of time with someone you love. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

There are different juices which are believed to offer health benefits to the body. One good example of a well known healthy juice is orange juice. Here are just a few of the many health benefits that you may be provided with when you drink orange juice.

Orange Juice Health Benefits

1. Drinking a glass of orange juice a day can keep the doctor away. Orange juice is known to contain a high percentage of Vitamin C, which is helpful in boosting the immune system. So, you will be less likely to catch various illnesses, such as colds or the flu.

2. Various medical studies show that orange juice may help lower both cholesterol levels and blood pressure levels, which are two very common problems among middle aged men and women.

3. Orange juice is thought to be very high in antioxidants. What this means is that this yummy juice may help prevent various forms of cancer, including breast cancer and prostate cancer.
4. Fairly large amounts of potassium, which is an essential nutrient for the body, can be found in orange juice.

5. Studies have shown that orange juice can help reduce the risk of heart disease, which is because it can help improve circulation.

6. Orange juice contains Folate, which plays a major role in the reproduction of new cells and can help with the healing process.

7. Research has shown that orange juice has anti-inflammatory properties. If you experience a lot of arthritis-related pain, orange juice may really help relieve it.

8. Due to the antioxidants found in orange juice, many people believe that drinking it on a regular basis may help aid in weight loss. Of course, with all of the other health benefits that orange juice has to offer, it is probably a good note to not drink the juice simply due to weight loss reasons, as it may or may not be effective. Drink Orange Juice in Moderation

Always remember that you do not need to drink a whole lot of orange juice in order to get these healthy benefits. In fact, since orange juice is fairly high in calories, avoid drinking too much of the stuff. Be sure to check the sugar content on the label when choosing orange juice if you really want to get the highest amount of health benefits from your orange juice and, ultimately, prevent weight gain (since high sugar levels can cause it). Orange Juice With Pulp

It is often said that orange juice containing pulp tends to even healthier for the body, but it is an issue that is often debated. If you have a stomach condition, remember that orange juice is very acidic and for that reason, it may cause you to feel an upset stomach. Due to its acidity, orange juice can also cause tooth damage if you do not care for your teeth properly after drinking it.

Bawang Putih Cegah Cancer?

SEJAK lama bawang putih dipercaya bermanfaat bagi kesehatan. Termasuk melawan virus, bakteri, hingga sel kanker. Benarkah?

Bawang putih selama ini populer sebagai bumbu penyedap masakan maupun pengusir setan dalam mitologi vampir. Di luar itu, tanaman bernama latin allium sativum ini sejak zaman kuno juga diyakini memiliki faedah medis seperti melawan virus, bakteri, dan kanker, serta menurunkan kolesterol. Tak heran, bawang putih pun dianggap sebagai "obat herbal ajaib".

Namun, sebuah temuan baru menyimpulkan bahwa bukti penelitian yang mengaitkan bawang putih dengan pengurangan risiko kanker kurang mumpuni dan masih sangat minim.
"Masyarakat ingin memercayai bahwa bawang putih mungkin saja efektif mengurangi risiko kanker, akan tetapi sejauh ini bukti ilmiah masih sangat terbatas untuk menyimpulkan bahwa bawang putih bermanfaat untuk semua jenis kanker," ungkap peneliti dari Ewha Women's University di Seoul,Korea Selatan, Dr Oran Kwon. Dia juga menjabat ketua tim penulisan penelitian yang dipublikasikan dalam Jurnal Nutrisi Klinis Amerika bulan ini.

Untuk keperluan penelitian itu, Kwon bersama timnya menganalisis 19 laporan hasil penelitian yang pernah dipublikasikan dan membahas keterkaitan konsumsi bawang putih dengan pengurangan risiko kanker tertentu.
Untuk proses evaluasi, Kwon dan timnya menggunakan standar penilaian seperti yang dilakukan US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) dalam membuat klaim manfaat kesehatan dari suatu makanan.

Hasilnya, peneliti menyimpulkan bahwa tidak ada bukti mumpuni untuk menghubungkan konsumsi bawang putih dengan risiko pengurangan kanker lambung, payudara, paru, dan endometrium. Mereka hanya mendapati bukti yang sangat terbatas, tapi dapat dipercaya, yang mengaitkan konsumsi bawang putih dalam mengurangi risiko munculnya sel kanker pada usus besar, prostat, kerongkongan, pangkal tenggorokan, mulut, indung telur, dan ginjal. Untuk itulah, Kwon menyarankan perlunya penelitian lebih lanjut.

Selama ini sejumlah ilmuwan sudah telanjur berteori bahwa bawang putih mungkin bekerja dengan berbagai cara untuk mengurangi risiko kanker. Termasuk menghancurkan tekanan oksidatif yang disebabkan molekul radikal bebas yang dapat memacu risiko kanker dan gangguan kesehatan lainnya. "Akan tetapi, klaim bahwa bawang putih mencegah berbagai jenis kanker belum memiliki cukup bukti," komentar nutrisionis sekaligus aktivis dari American Cancer Society di Atlanta, Colleen Doyle. "Bukti yang ada masih lemah," imbuhnya.
Kendati demikian, dia menilai kebiasaan mengonsumsi bawang putih tidaklah buruk. Artinya, jika Anda menyukai bawang putih itu bagus. "Silakan saja mau dipanggang, ditumbuk, ditumis. Itu tidak akan membahayakan Anda," katanya. "Jika kelak ada bukti kuat bahwa bawang putih bermanfaat mencegah kanker, ya bagus," ujarnya.

Lebih lanjut, Doyle mengungkapkan, penyuka bawang putih itu sendiri sebenarnya telah melakukan upaya pengurangan risiko kanker melalui diet seimbang. "Kami telah mengetahui bahwa orang yang menerapkan pola diet kaya buah dan sayuran, atau yang berdiet dengan mengonsumsi makanan berbahan dasar tumbuhan (termasuk bawang putih), berisiko lebih rendah terkena kanker," sebutnya.

Terkait manfaat bawang putih dalam mencegah kanker, peneliti dari Universitas Boston Amerika pernah melaporkan, bawang putih dapat mengurangi risiko kanker usus besar. Kandungan bahan yang disebut diallyl disulfide disinyalir membantu memacu usus memproduksi enzim yang bermanfaat membersihkan partikel penyebab kanker.
Peneliti asal Selandia Baru tersebut mencoba memberi makan tikus-tikus dengan kadar disulfide berbeda-beda. Hasilnya, usus tikus-tikus yang diberi makan dengan kadar disulfide banyak dan sedang (berdasarkan takaran asupan harian bagi manusia) mengalami peningkatan produksi enzim antikanker hingga 60 persen.

Mereka lantas menyimpulkan, walaupun hanya sesiung bawang putih, manfaatnya bagus juga bagi manusia.

How to Identify Real Pearls & Fake Pearls

Rub the pearl against your teeth. You may be able to tell this way as real pearls are supposedly rough while fakes are smooth. This is not the most reliable method as you can find smooth real pearls and rough fakes.

Hold the pearl up to the sunlight or very bright indoor lighting. You can check for variations in the pearl's color and tone. If it's perfect in its color and tone, it's very likely fake.

Look at the pearl through the magnifying glass. You should be able to see the ridges and irregularities of a real pearl, or the grainy smoothness of a fake.

Weigh the pearl. Real ones are usually heavier than fakes.

Test the warmth of the pearl. Resin and plastic pearls are often warm on first contact. Glass pearls take longer to warm in your hand than real ones.

Check the drill holes. Real pearls are drilled as small as possible to maintain their value, so fakes will often have larger holes. Also, the pearl surface, or nacre, will often flake off around the holes of fakes.

Check the pearl's shape. If it's a perfect sphere, it's likely a fake.

STROKE:Remember the 1st Three Letters....S.T.R.

It only takes a minute to read this...
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke....totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a by-stander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(I.e. It is sunny out today)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms t o the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this:
Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other,that is also an indication of a stroke.
