You can never be too safe, you hear it around, be clean, wash your hands, stay away from germs, but washing your hands should be taken very seriously, and here is how!
Covid-19: Wash your hands. No really. Wash your hands.
0% Tolerance of Alcohol on Your Body
Friday has been a shocking day for many lovers of alcohol. For the longest time, it has been agreed and understood that moderate drinking, i.e. a glass of wine a day, is healthy for you. It lowers your health risks of heart disease, diabetes and more; however it seems the risk of cancer and other illnesses is higher than the benefits.
Is this really true? It seems we get studies daily contradicting beliefs that certain things are advertised as healthy, yet in a decade or more, it turns out a new study shows the opposite, so what is the correct results on research?
Is smoking actually bad for you? some would say they have seen individuals live their whole lives healthy and when they quit, they die quite instantly after, or some have lived a very healthy life smoking while others die at a younger age from eating what they believe is healthy. It is sad to say, there are so many factors taking place in our health. How about Pollution? Water? Our Food consumption? Our Meats? Global Warming? Restaurant Food Servings? Coffee? And the list goes on…
So it turns out new research shows no alcohol is better than consuming some, but then again, what’s the real killer?
Do you live your life in fear or Actually LIVE? Yes, you can literally stay cooped up in your house, not drive because its dangerous, not eat out because its dangerous, not drink because …. it is dangerous. But where do we draw the lines?
Let’s face it, I am a lover of wine, I don’t smoke, I do eat out, love my meat, I may be one of the healthier people out there and exercise a whole lot. So, you can definitely say that I may be biased, but what is to life?
Please do not hesitate to write your opinions on this… It is shocking but did you expect anything less? …

Cancer & Acrylamide in Your Coffee
When coffee beans are roasted, acrylamide forms as a byproduct, it is in the cooking process. This byproduct is what scientists have determined could be cancerous in high doses. Again, coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of several types of cancer, and not to mention the dose in coffee does not seem to trouble researches.
March 28, 2018, a California judge ruled that Starbucks and other coffee shops will have to include warnings saying it contains a substance that could cause cancer.
It’s also one of the many chemicals in cigarette smoke, though in higher amounts than produced in coffee-making. The amount of acrylamide in coffee shows no evidence of danger.
At least one major review of studies found that the more coffee that people drink, the lower their risk of liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. And a review of more than 200 studies found that people who drank three or four cups of coffee a day were 19% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease. Heavy coffee drinkers have an 18% reduced risk of cancer overall, according to one large study, and some data indicates that coffee drinkers may be less likely to have oral or pharyngeal cancer or advanced prostate cancer.
Bottom line, be aware that this by-product is in your coffee, however the risks are lower than the benefits of coffee.

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
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!
