Here is a story of a man who so highly educated studied and achieved so much in his life to only fall in the hands of schizophrenia and homelessness after completing it.

This is quite inspirational how he wanted to reach so high and craved so much …. but sad how this happened.

Baby Powder…. Really?

Is this for real? Is Johnson and Johnson really selling products for Babies that can harm them?

Here is some facts showing that:

As early as 1982, studies have shown a link between baby powder and ovarian cancer in women. Findings have shown that women using talc­based powders are 300 times more likely to be diagnosed with cancer.

That’s really scary… and it’s true almost every household has one of these bottles and uses them quite often for various reasons… women, men, kids, babies…

What is happening here, will there be an official advisor on them soon? well, you know to avoid them and Read the labels…. be wary of TALC!

Well, what about Robin William? Would have never guessed right?

Let me tell you this, from experience, the happiest looking and funniest sounding people are sometimes the most unhappy and this is also because this is their mask, this is how they hide from the world how they truly feel.

Be aware, listen to your surrounding, if someone needs a hand, lend it, if someone is acting odd, Probe. If YOU are in need of a hand, ask! You have a way out, Just be strong, it passes…

Don`t give up on yourself, YOU CAN SURVIVE THIS!

There is always a light after a large tunnel of darkness.

Wish you all positive energy, love and health.

Ebola: Will this be the end?

So many are being infected by this modern outbreak. What is it exactly? We still don’t know. But North American science is in action and we are slowly trying to tame this. In this article, health officials are working to reduce risks into the country though nothing is certain, vaccines are being slowly attempted for human trials. Let’s hope this is the answer, because so it seems this is slowing showing to become the next H1N1.

Let’s hope there is answers to this epidemic as this is killing thousands and on going.

H. Pylori, sounds Familiar? Of course not…

Stress, spicy foods, type A personality. Which of these causes most stomach ulcers? The answer: none of them. Research shows that most ulcers — 80% of stomach ulcers and 90% of those in the duodenum, the upper end of the small intestine — develop because of infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/h-pylori-helicobacter-pylori 

 

H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) is a serious infection that many are not aware of, but..

Research shows that H pylori is present in 75% of the worlds population – that means 3 out of every 4 people are infected. When you consider this you can see there is a good chance you may be infected, especially if you have the symptoms of a stomach ulcer. http://www.ulcer-cure.com/index.php/h-pylori 

 

Do you

Have Hartburn, Abdominal Pain or Acid Reflux, Diarrhea, Constipation, Flatulence or Bloating. Do you feel Fatigue and Low Energy Levels, Nausea or Vomiting?

Have Unplanned Weight and Muscle Loss, or Difficulty Losing Weight? Loss of Appetite or bloating?

Suffer Hormonal Symptoms including Mood Swings, Depression and Anxiety?

Notice any Gum Disease, Bad Breath and other Oral infections?


If you have some or more of these symptoms, visit your doctor and ask to be diagnosed of H. Pylori, as left undiagnosed can turn into cancer.

If you have a couple of minutes, watch this girl’s experience with H-Pylori, it shows you how unaware we are about this infection and how common it really is. It is a simple video, but take the time to listen as she describes the infection and brings awareness.

Consider this, it’s Serious!

FRUIT RECALL: ATTENTION

California-based Wawona Packing Co. issued a voluntary recall on July 19 for certain types of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots that were packaged and shipped between June 1 and July 12. The fruit is being recalled for possible listeria contamination, though no illnesses have been reported to date, the company said on its website.

 

A Recall has been done on fresh fruits! So…. Be careful around peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots. These potentially contaminated fruits may be distributed at major chains such as BJ’s, Costco, Trader Joe’s, Sam’s Club and Whole Foods which have been cited. Please read the following article, and if you have been exposed, please be aware and throw out these foods for your safety.

 

Symptoms typically appear within a month or two of consuming contaminated materials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says listeria can be treated with antibiotics and urges consumers to seek treatment if they begin exhibiting symptoms after eating possibly tainted foods.

 

SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND AWARE: THIS CAN BE SERIOUS.

E-Cigarettes: No Better Than Cigarettes

Many believe E-Cigarettes are an alternative to safe/healthy smoking. Wrong! Check out this article showing how detrimental these electronic cigarettes can be.

AcroMax shows how these cigarettes are being exposed to children and in turn harming their bodies. This alternative exposes people to so much nicotine contrary to what is believed.

In fact the concentrated and flavored cartridges inside these E-Cigarettes contain enough nicotine to equal about two packs of cigarettes.

Children are exposed to this through not only swallowing but also through exposure to the skin and accidental spilling of the liquid which is very easy.

This all to say that the *alternative* to cigarettes that was believed to be is false and even more problematic. This is all poison and we must be careful.

For more detailed information please see the link below:

Please dont be ignorant to the signs and precautions out there. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

This is not to say that you should go back to smoking cigarettes, not the intention. But be aware of the poison you are in taking when alternating to these electronic cigarettes.

The Eye: Mirror to the Brain

New studies are showing that Alzheimer’s disease could very well be diagnosed as simple as looking into the eye.

Mice studies have found that those with Alzheimer`s disease also have loss of thickness in a layer in the eye cells.

”As the retina is a direct extension of the brain, they say the loss of retinal neurons could be related to the loss of brain cells in Alzheimer’s.” (BBC News)

Imagine that one day, opticians just may be able to diagnose this disease.

Does that mean that new treatment can be found as we prediagnose Alzheimer`s disease?

Further studies is required on this topic, but keep in consideration when looking at yourself in the mirror!

Depression: risk in the womb

Studies have shown that depression starts at birth. It seems that an adolescent is more likely to suffer depression if the mother was depressed while pregnant. The child is 1.3 times more likely to go through depression at adolescence if the mother was depressed while pregnant with him or her.

Doctors therefore advise women to get treated before getting pregnant or if diagnosed after pregnant, to get treated as it is healthier for the child and the mother.

So if you find yourself depressed, get treated before and while pregnant because you are not only harming yourself your child’s future.
