  • 25 Health Benefits of Lemon

    1. Lemon being a citrus fruit fights against infection. It helps in production of WBC's and antibodies in blood which attacks the invading microorganism and prevents infection.

    2. Lemon is an antioxidant which deactivates the free radicals preventing many dangerous diseases like stroke, cardiovascular diseases and cancers.

    3. Lemon lowers blood pressure and increases the levels of HDL (good cholesterol) 

    4. Lemon is found to be anti-carcinogenic which lower the rates of colon, prostate, and breast cancer. They prevent faulty metabolism in the cell, which can predispose a cell to becoming carcinogenic. Also blocks the formation of nitrosamines in the gut.

    5. Lemon juice is said to give a glow to the skin.

    6. A few drops of lemon juice in hot water are believed to clear the digestive system and purify liver as well.

    7. The skin of lemon dried under the sun and then ground to make powder can be applied to the hair for a few minutes before bath which relieves head ache and cools the body.

    8. Applying lemon juice to acne dries the existing ones and prevents from getting more.

    9. Lemon juice acts as a natural hair lightner and skin bleach which reduces the pigment melanin and prevents the risk of chemical allergic reactions which is common with hair dyes and bleaches.

    10. Lemon juice is given to relieve gingivitis, stomatitis, and inflammation of the tongue.

    11. Lemon juice is given to prevent common cold.

    12. Lemon juice is given to prevent or treat urinary tract infection and gonorrhea.

  • 14 Cancer-Causing Foods You Should Never Put In Your Mouth Again

     

    The American Institute for Cancer states on their website, “Research has shown that most cancers can be prevented. Scientists now estimate that 60 percent to 70 percent of

    cancers are all preventable through currently available information and simple changes in diet and lifestyle.” With that encouraging statement in mind, this article addresses changes you can make in your day to day dietary lifestyle that will not only improve your health, but help you to avoid toxins that can increase your chance of cancer

    1.BPA lined cans- This ingredient found in hard plastics and resins is used to coat metal cans. Laboratory studies in cells and animals have linked BPA to cancer, infertility, diabetes and obesity. Unless a canned item is labelled BPA free, it’s likely to contain bisphenol-A (BPA). BPA can also be found in numerous plastic products and dental composites.

    2.Cured and Smoked Foods- Nitrates and nitrites act as preservatives to prevent food from spoiling, they also add color to meats. When cooked, nitrites and nitrates change into by-products called N-nitroso compounds, such as nitrosamines and nitrosamides. N-nitroso compounds are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

    3.Farmed Fish- According to Food and Water Watch, farmed fish contain higher levels of chemical pollutants than wild fish, including PCB’s a known carcinogen. Due to overcrowding in fish farms, fish are more susceptible to disease increasing the use of antibiotic use. They are also more susceptible to sea lice, which means they are also treated with pesticides.

    4.GMOs– Sadly GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) have infiltrated our food supply at an alarming rate. GMO foods should be avoiding. Look for GMO free labels on foods. To learn more about GMOS and their health risks go to: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/gmo-education

    5.Grilled Meat- Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, are produced through certain types of combustion, such as the burning of coal or wood. An additional problem is created when fat from meat drips onto a fire, creating   a flare up and smoke, this allows the PAHs yo affix themselves to the food you’re cooking increasing your risk for carcinogenic exposure.

    6.Hydrogenated Oils- Hydrogenated oils, also known as trans- fats are a man-made product. These oils have a chemical structure that has been altered to prevent the product from going rancid in order to increase their shelf life. The Harvard School of Public Health notes that trans fats promote immune system over-activity and inflammation and are linked to heart disease, stroke and diabetes, among other chronic diseases. In addition to being chemically extracted from their source, chemicals are also used to mask the odor and change the taste of the oil.

    7.Microwave Popcorn– These bags are lined with Perfluoroalkyls, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) to prevent oil from soaking through the packaging. When heated, these chemicals leach into the popcorn; when ingested, they show up as blood contaminants. PFOA has been associated with tumors in animal organs (liver, pancreas, testicles and mammary glands in rats), and increases in prostate cancer in PFOA plant workers.

    8.Non Organic Fruits & Vegetables– Conventionally grown crops are grown with pesticides, herbicides and GMO seeds. All of which are hazardous to your health. To learn more about the hazards of eating conventionally grown food read EWG’s 2015 “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce” http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/dirty_dozen_list.php

    9.Processed foods– Cured meats tend to be high in nitrites and nitrates, preservatives that can, in large amounts, potentially increase your risk of stomach and other cancers. Processed foods are generally full of white flours, sugars, oils, colors, flavorings and other unhealthy ingredients.

    10.Refined Sugars- Researchers have found links between sugar and numerous issues such as unhealthy levels of blood fats, low HDL levels, increased risk for heart disease, higher blood triglyceride levels, obesity, immune suppression, arthritis and a host of other ills. Cancer cells thrive on sugar.

    11.Soda/ Sports Drinks- There is no nutritional value in drinking soda or sports drinks. These drinks contain high fructose corn syrup, sugar, dyes, brominated vegetable oil (a flame retardant), aspartame and other chemicals. They rob your body of much needed vitamins and minerals.

    12.Soy Protein Isolate– 90-95 percent of U.S.-grown soybeans, used to create soy protein isolate, are “Roundup ready,” which means they have been genetically altered to withstand herbicides. According to the American Dietetic Association, soy protein isolates are known to contain anti-nutrients that can develop or delay the body’s ability to digest food and absorb the nutrients into the blood stream. Soy goes through a highly industrial manufacturing process of acid washing in aluminum tanks. Aluminum is highly toxic to the nervous system and kidneys

    13.Sugar- Cancer cells thrive on sugar and any food that converts to sugar, such as grains, pastas, carbs, breads and most fruits. So for those who are dealing with cancer, eliminating sugar is key. For those who are looking to maintain health, eating a balanced diet that includes fruit is not as big of an issue.

    14.White Flour- Commercially grown grains begin with seeds that are treated with fungicide. The plants are then sprayed with pesticides. They are harvested and stored in bins coated with insecticides. Which all increase your toxic load. Grains are then processed in high temperature, high speed rollers. Chlorine oxide in the form of a chlorine gas bath is used as a whitener, as well as an aging agent. What you end up with is a starch devoid of nutrients and full of toxins.

  • 6 Things You Should Never Do To Your Private Parts

     

    #1 DO NOT Pull to make it long
    If you feel that pulling your p*nis might increase its length, you are wrong because this has not been proven yet. And if you still feel like stretching it and do it enthusiastically, you might damage the muscles and tissues.

    #2 DO NOT use  enlargement products
    If pulling your p*nis doesn't lead any results, the next go-to action is the use of p*nis enlargement products. However,not many people know that these products have hormones, vitamins and minerals and the companies don't tell you how they work! Will you still buy them?

     

    #3 DO NOT leave it unclean after s*x
    Make it a habit to clean your p*nis after masturbation or s*x. The fluids released during the act may be a breeding ground for bacteria. Instead of wiping it with a tissue, clean it with water.

    #4 DO NOT Over wash
    It is a good idea to keep your p*nis clean but not by over cleaning or washing it vigorously. The skin down there is delicate and there is a high chance of bruising due to friction. This in turn can put you at risk of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) including HIV.

     

    #5DO NOT Wear tight underwear
    Tight briefs affect the blood flow to your genitals and also lower the production of sperms, making you infertile, according to reports in the Human Reproduction journal. Also, excessive sweating in your pubic region, increases your risk of infection.

    #6 DO NOT Pierce your p*nis
    Body art like tattoos and piercing can damage the p*nis and also increase your risk of sexually transmitted diseases (if the instruments are not sterile)

  • What is Asthma?

     

    Asthma is a disease affecting the airways that carry air to and from your lungs. People who suffer from this chronic condition (long-lasting or recurrent) are said to be asthmatic.The inside walls of an asthmatic’s airways are swollen or inflamed. This swelling or inflammation makes the airways extremely sensitive to irritations and increases your susceptibility to an allergic reaction.

    As inflammation causes the airways to become narrower, less air can pass through them, both to and from the lungs. Symptoms of the narrowing include wheezing (a hissing sound while breathing), chest tightness, breathing problems, and coughing. Asthmatics usually experience these symptoms most frequently during the night and the early morning.

    For information on the different causes of asthma (allergy, colds, stress, exercise, etc)

    Asthma is Incurable
    Asthma is an incurable illness. However, with good treatment and management there is no reason why a person with asthma cannot live a normal and active life.

    What is an Asthma Episode / Attack?
    An asthma episode, or an asthma attack, is when symptoms are worse than usual. They can come on suddenly and can be mild, moderate or severe.

    What happens during an asthma attack?

    The muscles around your airways tighten up, narrowing the airway.
    Less air is able to flow through the airway.
    Inflammation of the airways increases, further narrowing the airway.
    More mucus is produced in the airways, undermining the flow of air even more.
