Benefits Of Eating Varieties of Fruits and How to Eat...

Add caption
Although, It's long but very informative.
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.
What is the correct way of eating fruits?
If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.
FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.
In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil....
So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet etc. - actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!
Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.
There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.  If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body.. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed.. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE': (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!) Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive...

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.

The Juicing Benefits Provided By Fruits And Vegetables

There are a wealth of reasons why you should be drinking fruit and vegetable juices, ranging from receiving your daily recommended requirements of nutrients to improved health and physical well-being. They supply an easily assimilated source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other essentials nutrients from bioflavonoids to phytochemicals.
The great thing about juicing is that these required essential nutrients can be readily absorbed by the walls of the small intestine and into the bloodstream where they can begin to do the most good all in a relatively short span of time.
This is possible because the fibrous part of the fruit or vegetable has been broken down, the juice extracted and the fiber removed. What we are left with contains all the nutrients you need including the enzymes needed for absorption. The fiber can be gotten from whole grains or just from fruits and vegetables you eat whole without juicing. This will lead to improved health, a better quality of life, and more energy.
When foods are juiced and not cooked or processed using heat, they are better able to retain their vitamins and minerals. The body can now also make better use of them faster because it doesn't have to break them down. It also has the added value of more energy available for you, especially if the juice is taken on an empty stomach.
Another juicing benefit is in the realm of weight maintenance and weight reduction. Juicing can help in the area of maintaining you optimum weight. They are very low in calories and are satisfying. Just substituting one meal a day with a fruit and vegetable juice can reduce your cravings for those fattening junk food snacks. With proper eating and an exercise routine, you can lose weight with juicing because you won't be taking in more calories than you burn off.
Juices have the added benefit of keeping you hydrated. When it's difficult to drink the amount of water necessary to stay hydrated, juices can make it a pleasant experience with the added side effect of providing needed vitamins and minerals. Fruits such as melons and grapes and vegetables like cucumbers and celery have high water content. When these are used in your juices you not only receive the water you need, but also vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, iron, and magnesium to name a few.
An important nutrient that our body needs are the antioxidant compounds. These antioxidants help protect the body from free radicals. These free radicals are basically electrons that are given off, when atoms, which compose the food, are broken down into the basic building blocks of life to nourish the body. These free radicals full of energy from being released from their orbits, then bounce around inside the cells doing damage.
Picture it as if you took one of those high bouncing rubber balls and then bounced it hard on the floor of your living room. As it bounced around the room, it would do some damage, especially to fragile items like china, glassware, figurines and the like.
This is important as that damage wears out the cells, even destroying them, and as we grow older those cells are not replaced as readily, if at all, which leads to faster wearing out of our bodies.

Obesity Can Cause Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Many Types of Cancer, How To Diet to Improve Immunity

There is ample evidence showing the relationship between obesity and diabetes, and between obesity and heart disease. For about the past twenty years, however, the medical community has become increasingly aware that there is also a connection between obesity and cancer.
The most common sites for the cancer to develop are the esophagus, colon, kidney, uterus, and breast, particularly after menopause.
The American Institute for Cancer Research has linked more than 100,000 cancers per year in the United States to obesity. Further, the obesity related cancers have tripled in incidence over the past two decades.
The American Cancer Society estimates thirty percent of deaths due to cancer are the result of nutritional deficiencies, excessive weight, and inadequate exercise.
Of particular concern is the fact that obesity is on the rise and is considered to have reached epidemic proportions. One may rightly assume therefore that because there is a relationship between excess weight and cancers, the incidence of cancer will also increase.
The relationship between the obesity and cancer is not completely understood because of the complexities of each of the diseases. However, there are several possibilities which may explain the connection to some extent.
- Esophagus: Obesity causes an increase in the incidence of regurgitation of the stomach contents, particularly at nighttime. The stomach acids irritate and wear away the lining of the esophagus.
- Colon: Fat cells are known to produce estrogen. It is speculated that the excess estrogen makes the cells of the colon more prone to cancer.
- Kidney: As with the colon, it is suspected that estrogen secreted by the fat cells is responsible for the development of cancer.
- Endometrium: The lining of the uterus is particularly susceptible to negative effects of the estrogen load flooding the system from fat cells.
-Breast: Obesity appears to trigger mutations of genes called BRCA1 and BRCA2 which are precursors to cancer of the breast in post menopausal women. Obesity also makes thorough breast examination more difficult.
There are at least twenty additional types of cancer in which obesity has been implicated. Notably, the gall bladder, pancreas, and ovaries also appear to be susceptible.
The good news is that the American Cancer Society has dedicated a significant about of research funds in hopes of learning more about the connection between the two diseases of cancer and obesity.
Even though the scientific community remains unclear as to the nature of the correlation, there is little doubt that the threat is real.
For those struggling with obesity or raising children who are at risk for excessive weight gain, the fact that the incidence of cancer in cases of obesity should be enough to spur us into action.
Obesity is the root cause of many serious illnesses, get rid of it Now!
