9 EARLY SIGNS OF LUNG CANCER





==========9 EARLY SIGNS OF LUNG CANCER===========

LUNG CANCER IS A DEADLIEST TYPE OF CANCER BOTH MEN & WOMEN.EACH YEAR,MORE PEOPLE DIE OF LUNG CANCER THAN OTHER CANCERS SUCH AS PROSTATE CANCER,BREAST,COLON ETC........PLEASE DO SHARE WITH EVERYONE MIGHT SAVES SOMEONE LIFE....

NO WARNING:

Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Read more to learn about lung cancer symptoms, what to watch and listen out for, and how early screening may help people at high risk for the disease

COUGH THAT WON'T QUIT:

Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. While a cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, a persistent cough that lingers can be a possible sign of lung cancer. Don’t be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or mucus-producing, as “just a cough.” See your doctor right away. He or she will listen to your lungs and may order an X-ray or other tests.

CHANGE IN A COUGH:

Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough has a deeper or hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it’s time to make a doctor’s appointment. If a family member or friend experiences these changes, suggest that they visit their doctor

BREATHING CHANGES:

Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded are also possible symptoms of lung cancer. This symptom can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If this symptom occurs after climbing the stairs to your house, bringing in groceries, or performing another task you could previously do without finding it hard to breathe, don’t ignore it.

PAIN IN THE CHEST AREA:

Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulder, or back area. This aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, pleura (lining around the lungs), or the ribs.

WHEEZING:

When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a lung cancer symptom, which is why it merits your doctor’s attention. If wheezing continues, don’t assume it’s asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm what’s causing it.

RASPY,HOARSE VOICE:

If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom becomes worrisome when it hangs on for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box.

DROP IN WEIGHT:

An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this weight drop may result from cancer cells using energy in the body. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses food energy. Don’t write off a change in your weight if you haven’t been trying to shed pounds—it may be a clue to a change in your health.

BONE PAIN:

Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor.

HEADACHE:

Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches in people with lung cancer are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava, which is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. This pressure can also trigger headaches.

Onion Juice for Hair Growth and Reversing Grey hair…


Onions are more than just a healthy vegetable. They have been shown to help increase hair growth and reverse grey hair when applied to the scalp.

Onion juice has been used for hundreds of years to treat thin and greying hair.

Onion juice helps by providing nourishment and circulation to the hair follicles. It also kills germs, parasites, and is helpful in treating some fungi infections, all of which can aid in prevention of hair loss.

Onions are also high in sulphur, which helps in regenerating the hair follicles, and they are beneficial in decreasing inflammation.

A few weeks ago, a breakthrough cure for thin and grey hair was published in medical science journal and showed great results for the effectiveness of a tropical compound called pseudocatalase (PC-KUS). The reason this tropical cream was found effective was that it targeted the cause of grey and thinning hair. Research from Bradford University in the UK and several other universities have shown that grey and thinning hair is caused by a build-up of hydrogen peroxide and a decrease in the natural antioxidant, catalase. When a build-up of hydrogen peroxide occurs at the hair follicles, it causes oxidative stress resulting in greying and thinning hair.

Catalase can not only be found in the tropical cream, but it can also be produced from the application of onion juice! Onion juice reacts similarly, as when it is applied; it increases the level of catalase on the skins surface, reducing the build-up of hydrogen peroxide.
Onion Juice for Hair Loss and Greying Hair

The results from the tropical application of onion juice can be observed within just a few weeks.

One study from the Journal of Dermatology found that just after four weeks of using onion juice, 74% of individuals with alopecia areata experienced significant hair regrowth. Within six weeks of using onion juice, 84% of the individuals were reported to have hair regrowth.





                                                      How to Make Onion Juice

When I first started researching using onion juice for hair growth, I immediately did a search for where I could buy some. Even though you can buy it online, it is better to use the juice of a fresh onion as any juice you purchase is stored for months and the fresh juice will be more potent. It is best to make the juice in small amounts so it is does not have to be stored for a long period of time.

There are 3 Ways You Can Make Onion Juice: 

1) Juicer- If you have a juicer; this is the easiest way to make onion juice. Just peel the onion, cut it in half and put it in the juicer.

2) Blender/Food Processor- Peel the onion and cut it into about 4 sections, then put them into your blender or food processor and start blending. Lastly, strain the mixture so that only the juice is remaining.

3) Grater – Peel the onion and cut it in half. Grate both halves of the onion over a dish and then strain the mixture to get just the juice.
How to Use Onion Juice for Hair

For the first application of onion juice, you may want to test it on a small area (in case you may be allergic to it) or water down the mixture. Even though it’s natural, pure onion juice is strong. 

Apply the onion juice daily to your scalp and lightly massage it in, this helps stimulate the hair follicles and allows for maximum absorption. 

Leave the onion Juice on for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

Ewwooooohhhh! The smell is powerful, but the results may be worth it! To avoid smelling like onion all day, you can apply it at night and then wash it out before you go to bed (happy? I guess yes).

If you’re allergic to onions or are looking for another option, another common remedy for thinning hair is ginseng.

Using onion-honey mixture: Take one-fourth cup of raw onion juice and add honey to it. Use this to massage your scalp on a daily basis to see the difference.

 Onion is a natural anti dandruff solution: Applying onion juice on scalp for half an hour before washing your hair with a shampoo can be very effective for treating dandruff.

Olive Oil and Honey for Treatment of Dandruff: Take 1/4th portion of honey and mix t into 3/4th portion of Olive oil. Apply on your scalp and hair and wrap a hot towel over it and wash after some time with a mild shampoo.

LATEST CANCER INFORMATION from Johns Hopkins







LATEST CANCER INFORMATION
from Johns Hopkins

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting ­properties. Water--best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

What is Angina Pectoris?

Help for Angina Pectoris
What is Angina Pectoris?

Angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain or the feeling of pressure in the chest that occurs when the heart muscle does not receive sufficient blood and oxygen supply. When the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart are blocked, the blood flow to the heart muscle is obstructed and chest pain results.

Angina pectoris may also be felt in the neck, back, shoulders, arms or jaw and sometimes can be confused with the pain of indigestion. It is more common in men than women and generally affects people over the age of 50, although it can also occur in younger people.

Three Main Types of Angina Pectoris

Stable Angina

The most common type of angina is stable angina, and this occurs when the heart is working harder than usual. It tends to occur after physical exertion, under emotional stress, or during excited. It is a result of a fixed obstruction of blood flow to the heart. At rest, there is sufficient blood and oxygen supply to the heart and no pain is felt. However, under conditions of exertion or strain there is insufficient oxygen delivered to the heart muscle and the pain of angina is felt. Stable angina is not a heart attack but can indicate the possibility of a heart attack occurring in the future.

Unstable Angina

Unstable angina is more serious and can quickly progress to a heart attack. It can occur at times of rest, such as during sleep, or it may occur during physical exertion. Unstable angina occurs as a result of a sudden interruption of blood flow to the heart, and is caused by a partial or complete blockage of the artery. A person who has never experienced angina before may suddenly develop moderate or severe symptoms of discomfort. Usually, these attacks will become more frequent and intensify over time unless the blockage is corrected.

Variant Angina

Variant angina is rare and usually occurs when the person is at rest. The pain experienced is severe and often occurs between midnight and early morning.


How is Angina Pectoris diagnosed?
The diagnosis of angina pectoris is based upon the person’s symptoms, medical history, as well as a physical examination. A doctor’s examination will help to rule out whether the chest pain could be caused by anything else such as indigestion or physical injury. If angina is suspected, your doctor will carry out other tests and investigations to confirm the diagnosis of angina and to establish the underlying cause.


Tests Typically Used to Diagnose Angina Pectoris

Tests that may be performed include:
Electrocardiography (EKG, ECG)
Chest x-ray
Exercise (stress) test
Coronary angiography/cardiac catheterization
Ergonovine test
Blood tests including cholesterol level



Symptoms of Angina Pectoris

Symptoms of angina pectoris vary from person to person. Angina may also be sparked when they place unusual physical strain upon themselves. It may also worsen after eating a large meal, when changing from a warmer to a colder temperature, or walking in the wind.

The symptoms commonly experienced include:
Heaviness or tightness in the chest
A stabbing pain that may spread to the left shoulder, arm, hand, neck, throat or jaw. This pain is often described as squeezing or pressing in nature. Numbness may sometimes also be felt.
Additional symptoms include sweating, nausea or difficulty breathing.


What Causes Angina Pectoris?

Angina pectoris is the result of coronary artery disease, the most common form of heart disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a condition in which fatty deposits build up in the arteries and eventually block the arteries supplying the heart muscle.

This build up of fatty deposits is a gradual process called atherosclerosis. As the fatty deposits build up, the coronary arteries become narrow and stiff and blood flow to the heart is reduced, thereby reducing the supply of oxygen to the heart muscle and causing pain.


Help for Angina Pectoris
The first approach in the treatment of angina pectoris is to prevent the progression of heart disease. By addressing the known causes of heart disease, such as reducing high cholesterol levels, controlling high blood pressure, stopping smoking, losing weight, exercising and eating a "heart-healthy" diet, the symptoms can be reduced.

Most people can live a productive life if they make the necessary lifestyle changes. By following medical advice, taking doctor-prescribed medication, maintaining a good, physical condition and eating well, angina can be controlled.

There are also natural alternatives to conventional medicine such as herbal and homeopathic remedies useful in controlling angina without the harsh side effects associated with prescription drugs. Herbal and homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle to use, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of the condition.

Herbs such as Crataegus oxyacantha (Hawthorn) have well-known cardio-protective qualities that protect against the damage caused by plaque build up in the coronary arteries. Passiflora incarnata is a calmative herb which also relaxes blood vessels and reduces blood pressure. In addition, Viburnum opulus (Guelder Rose bark) is a very effective cardiac tonic and muscle relaxant, while Ginkgo biloba improves blood flow throughout the body.

Note: Remember to always consult your doctor before stopping your prescription medication or adding natural remedies to your treatment. Also be sure to source natural remedies from a reputable natural medicines company to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!



DANGER!!!!

LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/ DAUGHTER/ FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES.
KNOW PLEASE!
Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!
On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue..

Sheryl Crow’s oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.
Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic!

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the Wellness
Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers…..
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin into the food.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food… You get the same result, but without the dioxin.. So, such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons….

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually
melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with
a paper towel instead.

Your Guide to Breastfeeding- 12 Superfoods for New Mom




Losing those pregnancy pounds might be at the front of your mind. But there’s something that's even more important for your body after your baby arrives -- eating foods that boost energy and give you stamina for being the best mom you can be.

Routinely eating nutrient-rich foods throughout the day will maximize the little energy you probably have as a new mom. If you’re nursing, the quality of your breast milk stays pretty much the same no matter what you choose to eat. But that's because when you aren't getting the needed nutrients from your diet, your body will provide them from your own stores. So making sure you’re getting all the nutrients you and your baby needs will benefit both of you.

Try to make these smart, nutrient-rich foods a regular part of your diet: Your body and your baby will thank you.

Salmon

There's no such thing as a perfect food. But salmon is pretty close when it comes to a nutritional powerhouse for new moms. Salmon, like other fatty fish, is loaded with a type of fat called DHA. DHA is crucial to the development of your baby's nervous system. All breast milk contains DHA, but levels of this essential nutrient are higher in the milk of women who get more DHA from their diets.

The DHA in salmon may also help your mood. Studies suggest it may play a role in preventing postpartum depression.

One caution: The FDA recommends that breastfeeding women, women who are pregnant, and women who might get pregnant limit to how much salmon they eat. The guidelines recommend an average of 12 oz, or the equivalent of two main servings, per week. The reason is to limit the amount mercury your new child is exposed to.

The mercury level in salmon is considered low. Some other fish, such as swordfish or mackerel, have a high content of mercury and should be avoided altogether. The 12 ounces are an average. Eating more in one week – such as having three servings instead of two -- won't hurt as long as you eat less the following week.



Low-Fat Dairy Products

Whether you prefer yogurt, milk, or cheese, dairy products are an important part of healthy breastfeeding. In addition to providing protein, B vitamins, and vitamin D, dairy products are one of the best sources of calcium. If you're breastfeeding, your milk is loaded with calcium to help your baby's bones develop, so it's important for you to eat enough calcium to meet your own needs. Try including at least three cups of dairy each day in your diet.

Lean Beef

Boost your energy as a new mom with iron-rich foods like lean beef. A deficiency of iron can drain your energy levels, making it hard for you to keep up with the demands of a newborn baby.

Nursing moms need to eat extra protein and vitamin B-12. Lean beef is an excellent source for both of these nutrients.

Legumes

Iron-rich beans, particularly dark-colored ones like black beans and kidney beans, are a great breastfeeding food, especially for vegetarians. They’re a budget-friendly source of high quality, non-animal protein.

Blueberries

Breastfeeding moms should be sure to get two or more servings of fruit or juice each day. Antioxidant-rich blueberries are an excellent choice to help you meet your needs. These satisfying and yummy berries are filled with good-for-you vitamins and minerals and will give you a healthy dose of carbohydrates to keep your energy levels high.

Brown Rice

You might be tempted to drastically cut back on carbohydrates to help lose the baby weight. Don’t. Losing weight too quickly may cause you to produce less milk and leave you feeling lethargic and sluggish. Incorporate healthy, whole-grain carbs like brown rice in your diet to keep your energy levels up. Foods like brown rice provide your body the calories it needs to produce the best quality milk for your baby.

Oranges

Portable and nutritious, oranges are a great food to boost energy for new moms. Oranges and other citrus fruits are excellent breastfeeding foods since nursing moms need more vitamin C than pregnant women. Can't find time to sit down to a snack? Sip on some orange juice as you go about your day -- you'll get the vitamin C benefit and can even opt for calcium-fortified varieties to get even more benefit from your beverage.

Eggs

Eggs are a versatile way to meet your daily protein needs. Scramble a couple of eggs for breakfast, toss a hard-boiled egg or two on your lunchtime salad, or have an omelet and salad for dinner. Opt for DHA-fortified eggs to increase the level of this essential fatty acid in your milk.

Whole-Wheat Bread

Folic acid is crucial to your baby's development in the early stages of pregnancy. But its importance doesn't end there. Folic acid is an important nutrient in your breast milk that your baby needs for good health, and it's crucial you eat enough for your own well-being too. Enriched whole-grain breads and pastas are fortified with this vital nutrient and also give you a healthy dose of fiber and iron.

Leafy Greens

Leafy green veggies like spinach, Swiss chard, and broccoli are filled with vitamin A, good for both you and your baby. The benefits don’t stop there. They're a good non-dairy source of dietary calcium and contain vitamin C and iron. Green veggies are also filled with heart-healthy antioxidants, are low in calories, and are tasty to boot.

Whole-Grain Cereal

After yet another sleepless night, one of the best foods to boost energy for new moms in the morning is a healthy breakfast of whole-grain cereal. Many cold cereals are available that are fortified with essential vitamins and nutrients to help you meet your daily needs. Whip up a healthy hot breakfast by stirring blueberries and skim milk into a delicious serving of oatmeal.

Water

Breastfeeding moms are especially at risk for energy-draining dehydration. To keep your energy levels and milk production up, make sure you stay well hydrated. You can vary your options and meet some of your fluid requirements by drinking juice and milk, but be careful when it comes to caffeinated drinks like coffee or tea. Keep your intake to no more than 2-3 cups a day or switch to decaffeinated varieties. Caffeine enters your breast milk and can cause your baby to become irritable and sleep poorly.

-- The health hazards of sitting --

                                                           



We know sitting too much is bad, and most of us intuitively feel a little guilty after a long TV binge. But what exactly goes wrong in our bodies when we park ourselves for nearly eight hours per day, the average for a U.S. adult? Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe.

1- Organ damage:-
--> HEART DISEASE:
Muscles burn less fat and blood flows more sluggishly during a long sit, allowing fatty acids to more easily clog the heart. Prolonged sitting has been linked to high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol, and people with the most sedentary time are more than twice as likely to have cardiovascular disease than those with the least.

--> OVERPRODUCTIVE:
PANCREAS The pancreas produces insulin, a hormone that carries glucose to cells for energy. But cells in idle muscles don't respond as readily to insulin, so the pancreas produces more and more, which can lead to diabetes and other diseases. A 2011 study found a decline in insulin response after just one day of prolonged sitting.

--> COLON CANCER:
Studies have linked sitting to a greater risk for colon, breast and endometrial cancers. The reason is unclear, but one theory is that excess insulin encourages cell growth. Another is that regular movement boosts natural antioxidants that kill cell-damaging
— and potentially cancer-causing — free radicals.

2- Muscle degeneration:-
--> MUSHY ABS:
When you stand, move or even sit up straight, abdominal muscles keep you upright. But when you slump in a chair, they go unused. Tight back muscles and wimpy abs form a posture-wrecking alliance that can exaggerate the spine's natural arch, a condition called hyperlordosis, or swayback.
SORE SHOULDERS AND BACK The neck doesn't slouch alone. Slumping forward overextends the shoulder and back muscles as well, particularly the trapezius, which connects the neck and shoulders.

--> TIGHT HIPS:
Flexible hips help keep you balanced, but chronic sitters so rarely extend the hip flexor muscles in front that they become short and tight, limiting range of motion and stride length. Studies have found that decreased hip mobility is a main reason elderly people tend to fall.

--> LIMP GLUTES:
Sitting requires your glutes to do absolutely nothing, and they get used to it. Soft glutes hurt your stability, your ability to push off and your ability to maintain a powerful stride.

3- Leg disorders:
--> POOR CIRCULATION IN LEGS:
Sitting for long periods of time slows blood circulation, which causes fluid to pool in the legs. Problems range from swollen ankles and varicose veins to dangerous blood clots called deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

--> SOFT BONES:
Weight-bearing activities such as walking and running stimulate hip and lower-body bones to grow thicker, denser and stronger. Scientists partially attribute the recent surge in cases of osteoporosis to lack of activity.

4- Trouble at the top:
--> FOGGY BRAIN:
Moving muscles pump fresh blood and oxygen through the brain and trigger the release of all sorts of brain- and mood-enhancing chemicals. When we are sedentary for a long time, everything slows, including brain function.

--> STRAINED NECK:
If most of your sitting occurs at a desk at work, craning your neck forward toward a keyboard or tilting your head to cradle a phone while typing can strain the cervical vertebrae and lead to permanent imbalances.

--> SORE SHOULDERS AND BACK:
The neck doesn't slouch alone. Slumping forward overextends the shoulder and back muscles as well, particularly the trapezius, which connects the neck and shoulders.

5- Bad back:
--> INFLEXIBLE SPINE:
When we move around, soft discs between vertebrae expand and contract like sponges, soaking up fresh blood and nutrients. But when we sit for a long time, discs are squashed unevenly. Collagen hardens around supporting tendons and ligaments.

--> DISK DAMAGE:
People who sit more are at greater risk for herniated lumbar disks. A muscle called the psoas travels through the abdominal cavity and, when it tightens, pulls the upper lumbar spine forward. Upper-body weight rests entirely on the ischial tuberosity (sitting bones) instead of being distributed along the arch of the spine.

** The right way to sit:
If you have to sit often, try to do it correctly. As Mom always said, "Sit up straight."

• Not leaning forward

• Shoulders relaxed

• Arms close to sides

• Elbows bent 90°

• Lower back may
be supported

• Feet flat on floor

Virgin Cow's Urine Cures Cancer, Diabetes and Baldness.




Virgin Cow's Urine Cures Cancer, Diabetes and Baldness.


Chin chin: Urine-drinking Hindu cult believes a warm cup before sunrise straight from a virgin cow heals cancer - and followers are queuing up to try it

The Hindu believers regard the cow as a holy animal and say her urine has divine healing properties

In the north Indian city of Agra, dozens gather at the cow shelter of DD Singhal to have a fresh glass of cow urine


A growing cult of Hindu worshippers in India claim that drinking fresh cow urine will help cure them of all diseases - including cancer. 
The Hindu believers regard the cow as a holy animal and say her urine has divine healing properties. 
Jairam Singhal, 42, has been drinking cow pee for over a decade and was keen to testify to its health benefits. 

I had diabetes, but ever since I have started drinking cow urine, my diabetes levels have been under control,' Jairam said. 
'Someone told me drinking cow urine is good for health.

'We have had cows here for over 12 years now, so first thing in the morning we take cow urine and drink it.'
In the north Indian city of Agra, dozens gather at the cow shelter of DD Singhal to have a fresh glass of cow urine.
'Lots of people come here. And of late, the numbers have been rising. We all gather in the morning and drink fresh urine that Mother cow offers us,' Singhal said.

'Just a few years ago, there would hardly be anyone interested in taking cow urine from our shelter. 
'But today lots of people come to our cow shelter. There are cancer patients sometimes - they want to see the benefits of cow urine.'

Many say the recent increase in the number of people drinking cow urine can be attributed to campaigns run by spiritual leaders.
Followers of the cult claim cow urine can successfully be used to combat cancer, diabetes, tumours, tuberculosis, stomach problems and much more. 
They also claim that drinking cow pee is the only effective solution for treating baldness.


Only two things are pure in this universe, in this world. One is the water from the Holy Ganges river and the other is urine from mother holy cow,' Ramesh Gupta, a Hindu priest, said. 'Cow urine has been mentioned in ancient Hindu scriptures. No one can doubt the good effects it has on the human body. It is a divine gift from God.' 
Followers like Gupta, however, insist that urine from every cow cannot be beneficial.
'The cow, whose urine one has to drink, should be a virgin - she must not have delivered a calf. Also, the urine is to be collected just before sunrise - that urine has the best effect,' he said.
However, there are people who oppose the claims made by preachers.
'People keep saying all kinds of things about cow urine, but we don't mind. People don't know what this is. They have never experienced the taste of cow urine or its effects, so how can they judge it,' Singhal said.
'It is just a matter of time before people realise the utility of cow urine.' 
He is now eyeing to cash in on the growing trend and has plans to start manufacturing cow urine products on a commercial scale.
'We can manufacture eye drops, medicines for stomach ailments, toothpaste, bathing soaps, herbal powdered medicine, among other things, from cow urine,' he said.
'Many cow shelters are manufacturing these products. There is a lot of demand for these products. They have good sales.'
