1.MICROWAVE:

On Channel 2 this morning they had a Dr.Edward Fujimoto from Castle Hospital on the program. He is the

manager of the Wellness Program at the hospital. He was talking about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He

said that We should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastics releases

dioxins into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Dioxins are carcinogens and highly toxic to the

cells of our bodies. Instead, he recommends using glass, Corning Ware, or ceramic containers for heating food

. You get the same results without the dioxins. So such things as TV dinners, instant saimin and soups, etc.

should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is

in the paper. Just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He said we might remember when some of

the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the

reasons. To add to this: Saran wrap placed over foods as they are nuked, with the high heat, actually drips

poisonous toxins into the food, use paper towel !

Pass this on, especially to your single friends who may use microwaves more than ovens/range top.

Thank You P E.

HERB:

GOTU KOLA

Gotu kola is appropriate for a number of complaints. As a tonic, the herb is relaxing and restorative for the

nervous system; it is especially helpful in treating anxiety. For forgetfulness or confusion and to promote

Mental calm and clarity, take the herb in the form of an infusion or tincture, but do not exceed a dosage of 1-2

teaspoons. You can also use the tincture to help ease rheumatism, and healing burns. You can drink gotu kola

tea and take vitamin C supplements. In addition, gotu kola is also used as a mild diuretic. It helps the skin too.

Relieving eczema, for example.

TAKE CARE:

Gotu Kola in high doses can result in dizziness, headaches, or skin irritation. The herb is not recommended for

children under the age of 6 years.

Interactions:

Combing herbs with certain drugs may alter their action or produce unwanted side effects. Tell your health care

practitioner immediately about any prescription or nonprescription drugs you're taking.

FACTS & TIPS

Cherries For Health

Sent in by a reader.

George Washington may have made the cherry tree famous, but he probably didn't know that the ripe red fruit

is packed full of healthful benefits.

Cherries contain a compound called "perillyl alcohol," shown to be effective against mammary cancer in lab

animals. Some human experimentation in similar cancer treatments is now going on and is showing promise.

The University of Wisconsin is doing the research.

Using cherries as part of a daily diet might possibly help ward off some types of cancer, including cancer of the

breast, lungs, stomach, liver and skin. Cherries also contain vitamins C and E, and the most benefits seem to

come from eating them raw, since cooking destroys some of their nutrients.

Thank You L W.
