Perhatian


Jangan sekali-kali menyimpan pisang dalam peti sejuk. Lepas baca anda semua pasti akan pandang tinggi pada buah pisang.

Pisang mengandungi 3 jenis gula semulajadi – sukrosa, fruktosa dan glukosa yang digabungkan dengan gentian. Pisang memberikan tenaga kepada manusia dengan kadar segera dan berterusan. Kajian yang telah dibuat menunjukkan bahawa 2 biji pisang mempunyai cukup tenaga untuk senaman selama 90 minit. Tidak hairanlah pisang dijadikan buah utama kepada atlit terkenal dunia. Bukan itu saja, malah pisang juga amat sesuai untuk mencegah dan merawat beberapa jenis penyakit, menjadikannya amat sesuai dalam pemakanan kita seharian.

Tekanan:
Merujuk kepada survey terbaru yang dijalankan oleh MIND terhadap pesakit-pesakit tekanan jiwa, kebanyakan daripada mereka kembali pulih selepas makan pisang. Ini kerana pisang mengandungi tryptophan, iaitu sejenis protin yang bertukar kepada serotonin dalam tubuh manusia, yang menyebabkan kita tenang, mengembalikan mud dan secara amnya membuatkan kita berasa gembira.

PMS:
Lupakan pil-pil hospital – makan sahaja pisang. Vitamin B6 yang terkandung mampu meneutralkan paras glukosa dalam darah, yang boleh mengembalikan mud anda.

Anemia:
Dengan kandungan zat besi yang tinggi, pisang mampu mengawal pertumbuhan hemoglobin dalam darah, yang secara tak langsung membantu dalam kes-kes anemia.

Tekanan Darah Tinggi:
Buah tropikal unik ini mengandungi kadar potassium yang tinggi – garam rendah, menjadikannya sempurna untuk menstabilkan tekanan darah.

Kuasa Minda:
Kajian dibuat terhadap 200 pelajar di sebuah sekolah di mana semasa peperiksaan dijalankan, mereka diberi makan pisang untuk sarapan, rehat, dan makan tengahari. Keputusannya, buah pisang yang mengandungi kadar potassium yang tinggi dapat membantu pembelajaran dengan menjadikan pelajar-pelajar itu lebih cekap (alert).

Penghadaman:
Gentian tinggi, jadikan pisang sebagai diet seharian anda pasti membantu menstabilkan tindakan usus kecil dan besar.

Keletihan:
Salah satu cara terbaik untuk mengurangkan keletihan ialah dengan membuat minuman pisang susu campur madu. Pisang bertindak menyejukkan perut dan dengan bantuan madu dapat membina semula kandungan gula dalam darah yang berkurangan akibat keletihan, manakala susu pula memperbetulkan sistem hidrasi semula anda.

Panas Jantung:
Pisang mempunyai kesan anti-asid semulajadi dalam badan. Oleh itu, jika anda menghadapi rasa panas di jantung, cuba makan pisang untuk pemulihan yang baik.

Demam Pagi:
Jadikan pisang sebagai snek setiap hari untuk membantu memelihara kadar gula dalam darah untuk mengelakkan demam pagi.

Gigitan Nyamuk:
Sebelum menggunakan krim gigitan serangga, cuba sapukan kawasan bekas gigitan nyamuk dengan lapisan dalam kulit pisang. Ramai yang telah berjaya mengatasi kegatalan akibat gigitan nyamuk dengan cara ini.

Saraf:
Pisang mengandungi kadar vitamin B yang tinggi yang dapat membantu menenangkan sistem saraf anda.

Obesiti dan Tekanan Kerja:
Kajian di Institut Psikologi di Austria mendapati tekanan kerja menjadi pemangkin kepada pengambilan makanan seperti coklat dan kerepek. Berdasarkan 5,000 pesakit hospital, kajian mendapati kebanyakan pesakit obes membuat kerja-kerja tekanan tinggi. Laporan juga menyatakan, untuk mengatasi masalah ini, kita perlu mengawal kadar gula dalam darah dengan mengambil makanan karbohidrat tinggi setiap 2 jam untuk mengekalkan kadar yang stabil. Makanlah pisang.

Ulser:
Pisang amat baik dalam pencegahan ulser kerana ia bersifat lembut dan tidak mencederakan organ dalaman kita. Ia juga bertindak sebagai peneutral lebihan asid serta mengurangkan kepedihan dengan bertindak menyaluti lapisan dinding perut kita.

Kawalan Suhu:
Ramai yang percaya bahawa dengan memakan pisang, ia dapat menurunkan suhu kedua-dua fizikal dan emosi kepada ibu-ibu mengandung. Di Thailand sebagai contoh, ibu mengandung mengambil pisang untuk memastikan bayi yang dilahirkan itu menjadi seorang yang penyabar (cool).

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
Penyakit ini merupakan simptom yang terjadi akibat daripada kurangnya pendedahan kepada cahaya matahari. Pisang dapat membantu pesakit ini kerana ia mengandungi tryptophan semulajadi yang membaikpulih mud kita.

Ketagihan Rokok & Tembakau:
Pisang dapat membantu perokok yang ingin berhenti merokok. Vitamin B6, B12, potassium dan magnesium yang terdapat dalam pisang, ia dapat membantu tubuh kita dalam membaikpulih kesan nikotin terhadap tubuh.

Stres:
Potassium merupakan bahan mineral vital, yang membantu menormalkan degupan jantung, menghantar oksigen kepada otak dan mengimbangi kandungan air dalam tubuh. Bila kita stres, kadar metabolisma kita naik, menyebabkan kadar potassium menurun. Keadaan ini dapat diimbangi semula dengan bantuan snek pisang yang tinggi potassium.

Strok:
Mengikut kajian dalam buku ‘The New England Journal of Medicine‘, mengambil pisang sebagai diet harian mampu mengurangkan risiko kematian akibat strok sebanyak 40%!

Lain-lain Penyakit Kulit:
Pengamal perubatan semulajadi (alternatif) berpendapat, untuk menghilangkan pelbagai masalah kulit, termasuk jerawat, kudis, parut, kurap, dan sebagainya, ambil sekeping kulit pisang, tampalkan sebelah dalam kulit pisang itu pada tempat yang ingin dirawat dengan menggunakan plaster luka biasa atau pun plaster bedah.
Jadi, pisang memang merupakan ubat semulajadi kepada banyak penyakit. Jika dibandingkan dengan epal, pisang mempunyai 4 kali ganda kandungan protin, 2 kali karbohidrat, 3 kali fosforus, 5 kali vitamin A dan zat besi, dan 2 kali vitamin dan mineral lain. Ia juga kaya dengan potassium dan merupakan salah satu makanan terbaik yang mudah didapati.

Jadi mungkin inilah masa untuk berubah kepada kata yang biasa disebut-sebut, “Sebiji pisang sehari dapat menjauhkan doktor!”

PS: Kesimpulannya, pisanglah adalah penyebab utama kenapa monyet-monyet di hutan selalu sihat dan bahagia setiap masa dan ketika! Satu lagi; ingin kilatkan kasut?? Ambil bahagian dalam kulit pisang, sapukan secara terus kepada kasut anda, kemudian kilatkan dengan kain kering. Menakjubkan!

Cerita ini didapat dari sebuah lama web:

Jika anda penggemar kangkung, tidak kira ca kangkung, petis kangkung, kangkung cos, dll yang berkaitan dengan kangkung, mungkin cerita ini dapat menjadi pertimbangan bagi anda when you want to eat kangkung

Saya mendapat cerita ini dari seorang teman, tapi saya lupa di negara mana, yang jelas antara Singapura / Malaysia.

Pada suatu hari di klinik yang terkenal, semua doktor kebingungan kerana ada seorang anak kecil yang menderita sakit perut. Anak itu dibawa ke klinik oleh orang tuanya setelah 2 hari menderita diarhea. Sudah bermacam ubat sakit perut yang diberikan kepada anak itu, namun diarheanya tidak sembuh.

Di klinik orang tua anak tersebut ditanya oleh doktor, makanan apa yang dimakan oleh anak tersebut selama 2 hari ini. Orang tua anak itu kebingungan, kerana sejak anaknya diarhea anak tersebut tidak mau makan, dia hanya minum susu, itu pun akan muntah semula.

Setelah dikaji, ternyata sebelum menderita diarhea, malamnya anak tersebut baru saja diajak makan kangkung cos di restoran oleh orang tuanya. Doktor segera melakukan x-ray, ternyata di usus anak tersebut telah berkembang biak lintah dengan anaknya yang kecil-kecil. Doktor surrender dan menyatakan tidak sanggup mengambil tindakan medical apapun.

Akhirnya anak kecil malang itupun meninggal dunia. setelah dikaji, ternyata lintah itu sebelumnya berada di dalam batang kangkung yang besar. Memang, untuk penggemar kangkung cos yang paling enak adalah batangnya. Lintah yang berada di dalam batang kangkung itu tidak akan mati walau dimasak selama manapun, apa lagi untuk kangkung cos proses memasak tidak terlalu lama untuk menghasilkan rasa kangkung yang enak. Lintah hanya akan mati jika dibakar.

Di dalam usus anak tadi, lintah yang tadinya hanya 1 dalam 2 hari berkembang biak dengan cepatnya karena terus-menerus menghisap darah yang ada, doktor juga kebingungan, bagaimana mematikan/membersihkan lintah yang telah sangat banyak tersebut dari dalam usus anak malang itu.

Jujur, sejak mendengar cerita itu, kesukaan saya terhadap kangkung menjadi berkurang, boleh dibilang sudah 1 bulan ini saya sama sekali tidak makan kangkung dalam bentuk apa pun, bukan kerana menjadi paranoid, tapi bagi saya lebih baik menjaga segala kemungkinan yang ada, masih banyak sayur lain yang dapat kita makan dengan meminimumkan segala kemungkinan “lintah” yang terselip di dalamnya. Semoga cerita ini dapat menjadi pertimbangan untuk kita semua sebelum masak/makan kangkung.

WE all accept that getting older is inevitable, and now leading clinicians have revealed the exact age when different body parts start to decline, most alarming being the brain and lungs.

French doctors have found that the quality of man’s sperm starts to deteriorate by 35, so that by the time a man is 45 a third of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein tells the Daily Mail the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.

BRAIN – Starts aging at 20
As we get older, the number of nerve cells – or neurons – in the brain decrease. We start with around 100 billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline. By 40, we could be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting memory, co-ordination and brain function.

GUT – Starts aging at 55.
A healthy gut has a good balance between harmful and ‘friendly’ bacteria. But levels of friendly bacteria in the gut drop significantly after 55, particularly in the large intestine, says Tom MacDonald, professor of immunology at Barts And The London medical school.. As a result, we suffer from poor digestion and an increased risk of gut disease. Constipation is more likely as we age, as the flow of digestive juices from the stomach, liver, pancreas and small intestine slows down..

BREASTS – Start aging at 35
BY their mid-30s, woman’s breasts start losing tissue and fat, reducing size and fullness. Sagging starts properly at 40 and the areola(the area surrounding the nipple) can shrink considerably.

BLADDER – Starts aging at 65
Loss of bladder control is more likely when you hit 65. Women are more vulnerable to bladder problems as, after the menopause, declining estrogen levels make tissues in the urethra – the tube through which urine passes – thinner and weaker, reducing bladder support. Bladder capacity in an older adult generally is about half that of a younger person – about two cups in a 30-year-old and one cup in a 70-year-old….

LUNGS – Start aging at 20
Lung capacity slowly starts to decrease from the age of 20. By the age of 40, some people are already experiencing breathlessness. This is partly because the muscles and the rib cage which control breathing stiffen up.

VOICE – Starts aging at 65
Our voices become quieter and hoarser with age. The soft tissues in the voice box (larynx) weaken, affecting the pitch, loudness and quality of the voice. A woman’s voice may become huskier and lower in pitch, whereas a man’s might become thinner and higher.

EYES – Start aging at 40
Glasses are the norm for many over-40s as failing eyesight kicks in – usually long-sightedness, affecting our ability to see objects up close.

HEART – Starts aging at 40
The heart pumps blood less effectively around the body as we get older. This is because blood vessels become less elastic, while arteries can harden or become blocked because of fatty deposits forming on the coronary arteries – caused by eating too much saturated fat. The blood supply to the heart is then reduced, resulting in painful angina. Men over 45 and women over 55 are at greater risk of a heart attack.

LIVER – Starts aging at 70
This is the only organ in the body which seems to defy the aging process.

KIDNEYS – Starts aging at 50
With kidneys, the number of filtering units (nephrons) that remove waste from the bloodstream starts to reduce in middle age.

PROSTATE – Starts aging at 50
The prostate often becomes enlarged with age, leading to problems such as increased need to urinate, says Professor Roger Kirby, director of the Prostate Center in London . This is known as benign prosthetic hyperplasia and affects half of men over 50, but rarely those under 40. It occurs when the prostate absorbs large amounts of the male sex hormone testosterone, which increases the growth of cells in the prostate. A normal prostate is the size of a walnut, but the condition can increase this to the size of a tangerine.

BONES – Start aging at 35
‘Throughout our life, old bone is broken down by cells called osteoclasts and replaced by bone-building cells called osteoblasts – a process called bone turnover,’ explains Robert Moots, professor of rheumatology at Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool . Children bone growth is rapid – the skeleton takes just two years to renew itself completely. In adults, this can take ten years. Until our mid-20s, bone density is still increasing. But at 35 bone loss begins as part of the natural aging process.

TEETH – Start aging at 40
As we age, we produce less saliva, which washes away bacteria, so teeth and gum are more vulnerable to decay. Receding gum – when tissue is lost from gums around the teeth – is common in adults over 40.

MUSCLES – Start aging at 30
Muscle is constantly being built up and broken down, a process which is well balanced in young adults. However, by the time we’re 30, breakdown is greater than buildup, explains Professor Robert Moots. Once adults reach 40, they start to lose between 0.5 and 2 per cent of their muscle each year. Regular exercise can help prevent this.

HEARING – Starts aging mid-50s
More than half of people over 60 lose hearing because of their age, according to the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.

SKIN – Starts aging mid-20s
The skin starts to age naturally in your mid-20s.

TASTE AND SMELL – Start aging at 60
We start out in life with about 10,000 taste buds scattered on the tongue. This number can halve later in life. After we turn 60, taste and smell gradually decline, partly as a result of the normal aging process.

FERTILITY – Starts aging at 35
Female fertility begins to decline after 35, as the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries start to fall. The lining of the womb may become thinner, making it less likely for a fertilized egg to take, and also creating an environment hostile to sperm.

HAIR – Starts aging at 30
Male hair loss usually begins in the 30s. Hair is made in tiny pouches just under the skin’s surface, known as follicles. A hair normally grows from each follicle for about three years, is then shed, and a new hair grows. Most people will have some Grey hair by the age of 35. When we are young, our hair is colored by the pigments produced by cells in the hair follicle known as melanocytes.

Taiwan, a woman suddenly died unexpectedly with signs of bleeding from her ears, nose, mounth & eyes. After a preliminary autopsy it was diagnosed death due to arsenic poisoning death. Where did the arsenic come from?

The police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to come to solve the case.

The professor carefully looked at the contents from the deceased’s stomach, in less than half an hour, the mystery was solved. The professor said: ‘The deceased did not commit suicide and neither was she murdered, she died of accidental death due to ignorance!’

Everyone was puzzled, why accidental death? The arsenic is of the U.S. military for carrying rice seedlings H Gao. The professor said: ‘The arsenic is produced in the stomach of the deceased.’ The deceased used to take ‘Vitamin C’ everyday, which in itself is not a problem. The problem was that she ate a large portion of shrimp/prawn during dinner. Eating shrimp/prawn is not the problem that’s why nothing happened to her family ever though they took the same shrimp/prawn. However at the same time the deceased also took ‘vitamin C’, that is where the problem is!

Researchers at the University of Chicago in the United States , found through experiments, food such as soft-shell shrimp/prawn contains a much higher concentration of – five potassium arsenic compounds.

Such fresh food by itself has no toxic effects on the human body! However, in taking ‘vitamin C’, due to the chemical reaction, the original non-toxic – five potassium arsenic (As anhydride, also known as arsenic oxide, the chemical formula for As205) changed to a three potassium toxic arsenic (ADB arsenic anhydride), also known as arsenic trioxide, a chemical formula (As203), which is commonly known as arsenic to the public!

Arsenic poisoning have magma role and can cause paralysis to the small blood vessels, “mercapto Jimei”??, inhibits the activity of the liver and fat necrosis change Hepatic Lobules Centre, heart, liver, kidney, intestine congestion, epithelial cell necrosis, telangiectasia. Therefore, a person who dies of arsenic poisoning will shows signs of bleeding from the ears, nose, mouth & eyes.

Therefore; as a precautionary measure, DO NOT not take shrimp/prawn when taking ‘vitamin C’.

After reading this; please do not be selfish n keep info. Forward to your friends and family!!

Could hot cocoa be the next “wonder drug”
For high blood pressure?
Harvard researchers praise stunningly simple discovery!

According to recent estimates, nearly 1-in-3 American adults has high blood pressure. But for the Kuna Indians living on a group of islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama, hypertension doesn’t even exist. In fact, after age 60, the average blood pressure for Kuna Indian islanders is a perfect 110/70.

Is it because they eat less salt? No. Kuna Indians eat as much, if not more salt, than people in the U.S.
Is it due to their genes? No. Kuna Indians who move away from the islands are just as likely to suffer from high blood pressure as anyone else!

So what makes these folks practically “immune” to hypertension — and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?

So what makes these folks practically “immune” to hypertension — and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?

Harvard researchers were stunned to discover it’s because they drink about 5 cups of cocoa each day. That’s right, cocoa!

Studies show the flavonols in cocoa stimulate your body’s production ofnitric oxide — boosting blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. In fact, one study found cocoa thins your blood just as well as low-dose aspirin!

But that’s not all. A Harvard Medical School professor claims cocoa can also treat blocked arteries, congestive heart failure, stroke, dementia, even impotence!

So what makes these folks practically “immune” to hypertension — and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?

Painless cholesterol cure works in just 7 days — and drives the “food police” crazy!

Want to lower your cholesterol so fast it’ll make your head spin? It’s a breeze, just eat guacamole — or any dish containing avocados!

Most health experts and nutritionists will tell you this rich, delicious Mexican dish is BANNED from any cholesterol- watcher’s menu. But not Dr. Steven Pratt. That’s because new research shows eating avocados can lower your cholesterol even faster than drugs…. without the side effects!

One study found after just 7 days on a diet including avocados, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglyceride levels dropped by 22 percent. Meanwhile, HDL (“good”) cholesterol shot up 11 percent — something most cholesterol- lowering drugs won’t do!

The cinnamon cure for high blood sugar

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on your toast, cereal, oatmeal, or sliced apples. It not only tastes good, it lowers your blood sugar!

Fortunately, there’s one unconventional treatment with NO side effects Dr. Pratt swears by. “Eat broccoli!” he says. Why?

Broccoli contains a remarkably potent compound called sulforaphane, that kills off the H. pylori bacteria that cause most ulcers. Not only can it knock out an ulcer, eating one serving a day for a month might run you 20 bucks… a fraction of the cost of drugs.

In a recent study, people reduced their blood sugar levels by as much as 29 percent in just 40 days. That’s with NO drugs, NO diet changes — just plain old cinnamon!

The fat that blasts away cancer

You’ve been told cancer runs in families. You’ve been told what to eat and what NOT to eat — including LESS fat.

Yet Dr. Steven Pratt says there’ some fat you should eat MORE of. It’s the monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, found in olive oil! It should come as no surprise. After all, olive oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet. And people inSpain and Greece are far less likely to develop cancer than in the U.S.

But what’s really interesting is how olive oil not only prevents cancer, it blasts away cancer cells that already exist! So if you’re even the slightest bit worried about cancer, this is oneSuperFood you don’t want to be without!

NEW prostate-protecting champ trumps tomatoes!

Unless you’ve been asleep under a rock for the past decade, you’ve heard the news about tomatoes. They contain a potent antioxidant calledlycopene that’s been proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers — in particular, prostate cancer.

A famous Harvard study back in 1995 found that out of 48,000 men surveyed, those who ate 10 or more servings of tomatoes a week reduced their risk of prostate cancer by more than one-third. What’s more, they lowered their risk of aggressive prostate tumors (the kind that are really tough to treat) by HALF!

But before you reach for that slice of pizza or bottle of ketchup, listen up. What if I told you about a sweet, refreshing food Dr. Steven Pratt recommends that’s even better for your prostate than tomatoes?
This NEW prostate protecting champ is watermelon! Ounce for ounce, watermelon is even richer in lycopene than tomatoes. And since you probably eat more watermelon in one sitting than you do tomatoes, you don’t have to gorge on it 10 times a week in order to slash your cancer risk! Just a few times a week should do it.
Knock out an ulcer with broccoli?!

About 25 million Americans will suffer from a peptic ulcer at some point in their lives. To get rid of their ulcers, most will take an antibiotic like amoxicillin.

Pretty tame stuff, right? Wrong! Amoxicillin can bring with it unwanted side effects like fever, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, headache, even a yucky condition called “hairy tongue”!

And if you think that’s bad, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the cost of treating an ulcer with antibiotics over an average 17-day period can run upward of $1,000!

LIQUID HAND SANITIZER — This is a Warning for all parents / grandparents

Yesterday, my youngest daughter, Halle who is just 4 years old, was rushed to the ER

By her father for being severely lethargic and incoherent in her classroom.
He was called to her school by the school secretary who said that she was ‘very, very sick’!!

He told me that when he arrived at her classroom, Halle was barely sitting in the chair.
She couldn’t hold her own head up and when he looked into her eyes, she
Couldn’t focus them.

He immediately scooped her up and rushed her to the closest ER, and then

Called me. When he got there, they ran blood test after blood test and did x-rays,
Every test imaginable. Her white blood cell count was normal, nothing was
Out of the ordinary. When I arrived at the ER, the doctor there told us that he

Had done everything that he could do so he was transferring her to Saint Francis

Hospital for further tests.

Right as we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher arrived at the ER and

Told us that after questioning Halle ‘S classmates, She had found out that our little

Girl had licked liquid hand sanitizer off of her hands !!!

Hand sanitizer, of all things. But it makes sense. These days they have all kinds

Of different scents and flavors and when you have a curious child, they are going

To put all kinds of things into their mouths.

When we arrived at the Saint Francis’ Hospital ER, we told the ER Doctor there to

Check her blood alcohol level, and yes we did get weird looks, but they did it.

The results showed her blood alcohol level was 85% — six hours after we first

Took her. There’s no telling what it would have been if we would have requested

It at the first ER.

Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools have taken the liquid hand

Sanitizers out of all the lower grade classes, but what’s to stop middle and high

Scholars from ingesting this stuff?

After doing research on the Internet, we found out that it only takes about

3 squirts of the stuff ingested to be fatal to a toddler.

For her blood alcohol level to be so high, it would be like someone her size

Drinking120 proof liquor. So PLEASE PLEASE don’t disregard this because

We don’t ever want another family to go through what ours has gone through.

Please send this to everyone you know who has children

Or are planning to have children.

It doesn’t matter what age. This could affect anyone of them .

This information was in The New York Times several weeks
ago as part of their “Spotlight on the Home” series that highlighted
creative and fanciful ways to solve common problems.

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every
day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2,
Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C,
Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and
Zinc.

react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to
humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the
area.

5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite
before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two
of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the
phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your

Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge,
and voila, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don’t have time for massage,
facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and
place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and
nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling
water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing,
relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new
mothers and college students during final exams.

11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don’t
have gum or mints?
Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your
mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad
breath, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your
mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

won’t harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the
cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also
works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used
to decorate the walls!!

Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for
better and safer ways to solve life’s everyday
problems.

Dear All,

Please read this and advise your friends and family! You may save others’ lives!

Incident One: A little boy died because surgeons found ants in his brain! Apparently this boy fell asleep with some sweets in his mouth or with some sweet stuff beside him.

Ants soon got to him and some ants in fact crawled into his ear which somehow managed to go to his brain. When he woke up, he did not realize that ants had gone to his head.

After that, he constantly complained about itchiness around his face. His mother brought him to a doctor, but the doctor could not figure out what was wrong with him. He took an X-ray of the boy and to his horror; he found a group of live ants in his skull. Since the ants were still alive, the doctor could not operate on him because the ants were constantly moving around. The boy finally died. So please be careful when leaving food stuff near your bed or when eating in bed. This might attract ants. Most importantly,

NEVER you or your child eat sweets before going to bed. You or your child might attract ants while you are asleep.

Incident Two: Another similar incident happened in a hospital in Taiwan . This man was warded in the hospital and was constantly warned by the nurses not to leave food stuff by his bedside because there were ants about. He did not heed their advice. Ants finally got to him. His family members said that the man constantly complained about headaches. He died and a postmortem or autopsy was done on him. Doctors found a group of live ants in his head. Apparently, the ants had been eating bits of his brain. So friends, better be safe than sorry. Never leave food stuff beside your bed you when you go to sleep.

Please forward this to your friends and relatives.
