1. HEALTHY LIVING IN TODAY'S WORLD WITH VITAMINS MINERALS

Make the commitment to be healthy for life. Today it is not easy but, it can be done.

We ourselves as grown ups set the example for our children and their children.

According to recent United States Department of Agriculture

(USDA) statistics, more than 84 percent of children and adolescents

eat too much fat, and more than 91 percent eat too much saturated fat.

The source of much of this fat, and a primary reason so many kids as well as adults are

now overweight or obese, is fast food.

What can you as an individual do to protect your family and yourself?

Learn how to keep your immune systems as strong as possible! The human

body has been miraculously designed to afford you the maximum chances of survival in

the face of diseases and other threats to your health and safety. But it can only perform at

optimal levels if you continually provide the nourishment and nurturing it requires.

Good nutrition and whole food supplementation, designed to support immune health and

a healthy lifestyles, are important first steps and may well be your best defense against

disease threats of any kind.

Most people don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, and they rarely eat enough every day.

So, they don't get much of the needed nutrition that fresh, raw fruits and vegetables provide.

antioxidants in the blood, and reduced peroxides.  Iimproves the functioning of the immune system,

and reduces DNA damage in humans.

Since many of these factors are related to the onset of serious diseases such as cancer, heart

attacks and cardiovascular disease, it is possible that vitamins,  and minerals help the body run  

smoothly, specifically... and phytonutrients... more generally can reduce the risk -- and perhaps

help prevent -- many serious diseases.

5. FACTS AND TIPS:

Sent in by a reader.

P.E.

BOILING WATER IN MICROWAVE

I heat water in the microwave all the time, so if any of you do too, then you need to read this.

I did not know this, did you?

A 26-year old man decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the

microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure

how long he set the timer for, but he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut

the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the

water was not boiling, but suddenly the water in the cup "blew up" into his face. The cup

remained intact until he threw it out of his hand, but all the water had flown out into his face

due to the build up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns

to his face which may leave scarring.

He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was

attending to him stated that this is a fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never

be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed

in the cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. (nothing metal).

It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a tea kettle.

GENERAL ELECTRIC RESPONSE:

Thanks for contacting us, I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct.

Micro waved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point.

They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up

out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it.

To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two

minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before

moving it or adding anything into it.

Here is what our local science teacher had to say on the matter: "Thanks for the microwave warning.

I have seen this happen before. It is caused by a phenomenon known as super heating. It can

occur anytime water is heated and will particularly occur if the vessel that the water is heated in is new,

or when heating a small amount of water (less than half a cup).

What happens is that the water heats faster than the vapor bubbles can form. If the cup is very

new then it is unlikely to have small surface scratches inside it that provide a place for the bubbles to form..

As the bubbles cannot form and release some of the heat that has built up, the liquid does not boil, and

the liquid continues to heat up well past its boiling point.  What usually happens, when the liquid is bumped

or jarred, just enough of a shock to cause the bubbles to re acidly form and expel the hot liquid.

The rapid formation of bubbles is also seen when carbonated beverage spews when opened after

having been shaken."

6. IN THE NEWS:

Chocolate Improves its Image

Old News it's bad for you.

Latest News:Maybe not so bad.Chocolate contains large amounts of the same benificial plant

chemicals that now have burnished the reputation of tea.  Just one ounce of chocolate has about

as much of these plant chemicals as a cup of brewed black tea.  One large, ongoing study of the

benifits of exercise found that men who eat chocolate  in moderation (one to three bars a month)

live longer than those who eat none.  Nobody knows why.  And moderation remains the word.
