The many health benefits of drinking lemon water
Lemons have always been cherished for their significant medicinal qualities. The ancient people of India, China and Mesopotamia regularly used lemons to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, while the ancient Egyptians took advantage of the fruit's antiseptic qualities and embalmed their mummies in its juices. Later, in 15th century Europe, lemons were recognized as the perfect cure for scurvy.

Despite their healthfulness, however, most people today have no desire to eat whole lemons due to their extreme sourness. Thankfully, there are numerous ways to incorporate lemons into our diet without having to tolerate the entire fruit's overbearing taste. One of the easiest and most popular ways to do this is to drink a glass of warm, purified water containing a few teaspoons of lemon juice, ideally first thing in the morning. As this article will show, the benefits of such a simple and inexpensive tonic will considerably exceed most people's expectations.

Cleanses and detoxifies the system

Lemon water is packed with an antioxidant called d-Limonene, which is known to have a cleansing and detoxifying effect on the body. For example, research published in the journal Alternative Medicine Review noted that d-Limonene could help "dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones" and, due to its gastric acid neutralizing effect, could be "used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)". Moreover, d-Limonene is known to activate enzymes in the liver that can accelerate the organ's detoxification process.

Aids digestion

Lemon juice shares a similar atomic composition to our digestive juices, making lemon water a fantastic aid to our digestive system. Aside from encouraging the liver to create more bile, the bitter-tasting fluid that aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine, lemon water can also relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as bloating and heartburn. The American Cancer Society even recommends lemon water for patients suffering from constipation.

Boosts immunity

Lemons are famous for their rich concentrations of vitamin C, an essential antioxidant that plays an important role in maintaining immunity. According to a German study entitled "Vitamin C and immune function," certain cells of the immune system, such as phagocytes and T cells, need vitamin C to perform their tasks. The study author also noted that "a vitamin C deficiency results in a reduced resistance against certain pathogens whilst a higher supply enhances several immune system parameters." For this reason, drinking lemon water is a fantastic way to decrease our susceptibility to illness.

Clears skin

The vitamin C in lemon water also plays an important role in the production of collagen, the main structural protein of our connective tissues. This fact makes lemon water an excellent natural tonic for our skin. It can help improve skin tightness and decrease wrinkles, clear skin blemishes from the inside out and, due to its alkaline nature (after it enters our body), also helps kill some of the bacteria responsible for acne.

Other benefits attributed to the long-term consumption of lemon water include improved mood and energy levels, fresher breath, balanced pH levels and superior hydration. Lemon water is also high in a soluble dietary fiber called pectin, which can help tackle hunger cravings and contribute to weight loss.

Does Mom's Cellphone Startle the Fetus?
The sounds emitted by cellphones carried by pregnant women may rattle the sleep-and-wake cycles of their fetuses, new research suggests. The finding is based on a small study that tracked fetal reactions to repetitive cellphone and beeper use among more than two dozen resident physicians while they were pregnant.

Three reasons you shouldn't buy almond milk
1)Store-bought almond milk has very little almonds in it
Recently, it was revealed that almond milk producers are really cutting corners when it comes to the percentage of almonds that make up a carton of almond milk. In fact, it turns out that half a gallon of almond milk contains less than a handful of almonds. One analysis of European almond milk brand Alpro revealed that almonds make up a measly 2% of the total drink.

2)It contains other not-so-natural ingredients
Not only does almond milk not contain many almonds, but it also contains other ingredients primarily used as thickening agents so it appears more creamy and not watered down.

3)It is not sprouted
Even if someone chooses the finest almond milk that money can buy in the store, it still shouldn't be mindlessly bought, as it won't be produced from sprouted almonds.
So, we have to buy raw almond at Costco and blend it. Or just eat it straight.

Vegetarian Diet Lowers Risk for Some Cancers, Study Finds

To prevent certain types of cancer, a vegetarian diet with some fish might be the best protection, according to a new study. Fish-eating vegetarians, or pescovegetarians, had a 43% lower risk of colorectal cancers than nonvegetarians.

This beat out the results for vegans, who had a 16% lower risk, and lacto-ovo vegetarians, who eat milk and eggs and who had an 18% lower chance. Combined, all types of vegetarians had a 22% reduced risk for colorectal cancers than nonvegetarians.

According to the researchers, the additional benefit from fish probably comes from omega-3 fatty acids. However, they note that even the nonvegetarian group in the study consumed less meat than the average American.

Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly cancer in the U.S., after lung cancer, and previous studies have suggested that meat-heavy diets, especially processed meat, can elevate risk for the condition. This latest research is led by Michael Orlich, an assistant professor of preventive medicine at Loma Linda University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution in California.

According to the researchers, vegetarians might be protected from colorectal cancer not only because they eat less meat, but because they eat more plants. “Diets high in fiber are linked with decreased risk, and fiber comes from whole plant foods, so this could be a major reason why the risk is much lower,” said Dr. Orlich.

The vegetarian groups also ate fewer fatty foods and snacks in general than the nonvegetarians. This helps reduce excess levels of insulin in the blood, which has been linked to elevated risk for colorectal cancers.

Safe but inadequate: Tylenol flunks back pain test
Tylenol and other products containing acetaminophen do little or nothing to help lower back pain or arthritis, a new report finds.
Patients might do better with stretching and exercise, the Australian researchers report. They don't recommend that people move on to stronger drugs such as opioids.
It's sure to be a controversial finding. Most expert groups advise that people try acetaminophen first — even though the pills can cause liver damage, if people take too much. They're also far safer than drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen, known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS. NSAIDS can sometimes cause deadly gastric bleeding.
And the dangers of opioids are even worse — dependence, addiction and overdose.
For the study, Gustavo Machado from The George Institute for Global Health at the University of Sydney in Australia and colleagues reviewed 13 different studies that looked directly at which treatments helped lower back pain and arthritis.
Ten of the trials included 3,541 patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, and three trials included 1,825 patients with lower back pain.
"There was 'high quality' evidence that (acetaminophen) is ineffective for reducing pain intensity and disability or improving quality of life in the short term in people with low back pain," they wrote in the online version of the British Medical Journal, called The BMJ.
To be honest, I never taken Advil or Tyrnol in my life, Medicine is poison. It is my thinking way of life. I take medicine for fatal situation only. If I get flue, I take extra vitamin C, ginger and garlic with spicy food. This is just a sample.

Starving sea lions now fight U.S. fishermen for food as West Coast ecosystem collapses
 The West Coast ecosystem is in a state of dire collapse. The Southern California sea lion population is dwindling to new lows as countless hungry and emaciated pups wash ashore. There's simply not enough food to go around for the mammals. Some believe the acidity of the waters is intensifying, not allowing certain species of fish to survive. The sudden decline in sardine biomass off the West coast is directly impacting larger animals in the food chain like the Southern California sea lions. A record number of these beautiful sea mammals have been rescued since 2013, when an unusual "mortality event" was declared. As the animals struggle to find food, some appear to be getting vicious and may now attack humans for food.
In fact, a fisherman recently had a violent altercation with a sea lion at a San Diego marina. As he was holding a large fish and posing for a picture, a sea lion jumped from the water, hopped on deck and lunged at the man and his prized catch. The sea lion effectively took the fish and pulled the man into the ocean. Authorities said the man was injured. San Diego Fire Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson reported that the violent altercation resulted in the fisherman being carried underwater for 15 breathtaking seconds. When the man was rescued, he was taken to a local hospital and treated for cuts on his arm and hand.
Official sources may propose that global warming is causing mass migration of fish away from the West coast, resulting in starving sea lions, but slight fluctuations in water current temperature may be part of larger cycles and shifts that naturally occur in the ocean.

Energy drinks significantly increase hyperactivity in schoolchildren
Middle-school children who consume heavily sweetened energy drinks are 66% more likely to be at risk for hyperactivity and inattention symptoms, a new study led by the Yale School of Public Health has found.
The finding has implications for school success and lends support to existing recommendations to limit the amount of sweetened beverages schoolchildren drink. The authors also recommend that children avoid energy drinks, which in addition to high levels of sugar also often contain caffeine. The study is published in the journal Academic Pediatrics.
The research team -- led by professor Jeannette Ickovics, director of CARE (Community Alliance for Research and Engagement) at the School of Public Health -- surveyed 1,649 middle-school students randomly selected from a single urban school district in Connecticut.
The researchers found that boys were more likely to consume energy drinks than girls and that black and Hispanic boys were more likely to drink the beverages than their white peers. The average age of the student participants was 12.4 years old. The study controlled for the number and type of other sugar-sweetened drinks consumed.
"As the total number of sugar-sweetened beverages increased, so too did risk for hyperactivity and inattention symptoms among our middle-school students. Importantly, it appears that energy drinks are driving this association," said Ickovics. "Our results support the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation that parents should limit consumption of sweetened beverages and that children should not consume any energy drinks."
While more research is needed to better understand the effects and mechanisms linking sweetened beverages and hyperactivity, previous research has shown a strong correlation between children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and poor academic outcomes, greater difficulties with peer relationships, and increased susceptibility to injuries. These associations are understudied among minority children, notes Ickovics, and previous research has suggested under-diagnosis of ADHD in black and Hispanic children.
Some sugar-sweetened beverages and energy drinks that are popular with students contain up to 40 grams of sugar. The students in this study consumed on average two sugared drinks per day, with a range of zero to seven or more drinks. Health experts recommend that children consume a maximum of 21 to 33 grams of sugar daily (depending on age).
In addition to hyperactivity and inattention, heavily sugared beverages also impact childhood obesity, notes Ickovics, and sugar-sweetened beverages are a leading cause of added calories in the diets of obese children. Currently, about one-third of American schoolchildren are considered overweight or obese.
The study was co-authored by other researchers from CARE, the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, and the New Haven Public Schools.

More whole grains associated with lower early mortality, especially cardiovascular
Eating more whole grains appears to be associated with reduced early mortality, especially deaths due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), but not cancer deaths, according to a report published online by JAMA Internal Medicine.
Whole grains are widely recommended in many dietary guidelines as healthful food. However, data regarding how much whole grains people eat and mortality were not entirely consistent.
Hongyu Wu, Ph.D., of the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, and coauthors examined the association between eating whole grains and the risk of death using data from two large studies: 74,341 women from the Nurses' Health Study (1984-2010) and 43,744 men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1986-2010). All the participants were free of cancer and CVD when the studies began.
The authors documented 26,920 deaths. After the data were adjusted for potential confounding factors including age, smoking and body mass index, the study found that eating more whole grains was associated with lower total mortality and lower CVD mortality but not cancer deaths. The authors further estimated that every serving (28 grams/per day) of whole grains was associated with 5 percent lower total mortality or 9 percent lower CVD mortality.
"These findings further support current dietary guidelines that recommend increasing whole grain consumption to facilitate primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease and also provide promising evidence that suggests a diet enriched with whole grains may confer benefits toward extended life expectancy," the study concludes.
I eat Brown rice with grains sometimes. I like breads with grains.
