Health And Lifestyle / 4 Ways Technology Might Be Injuring You
« on: October 16, 2016, 10:15:34 AM »

Tablet Neck

Any hand-held mobile device can cause posture problems, but it's hard to hold a tablet in an ergonomically friendly way, says Dr Szeto. Most people hold theit tablet too low-i.e, resting on their laps, or propped against their thigh.

When you look down at your tablet screen, you're also transferring more pressure to your upper spine; when that happens, your neck muscles have to work overtime to support your head, upping the odds that you'll strain those muscles.

To fix this, when watching a video clip on your tablet, prop up your tablet on a table, keeping it at eye level; If you are typing, try to use the device in the same way you'd use a desktop computer. For example, use a keyboard and place the screen on your desk at eye level. For smaller devices, raise up the phone when texting to eye level so that your neck supports the weight your head at an upright position.

Computer Vision Syndrome

People who use a computer for more than two hours a day may develop computer vision syndrome (CVS).

CVS refers to a group of eye problems that results from prolonged computer use. Most commonly, people experience eyestrain, headache, blurred vision,, and dry eyes. Although temporary for most people, these condition can be very disturbing, especially if they occur every day.

CVS is caused  because of high visual demands of computer viewing. The eyes need to work harder,and are usually at closer distance to the computer screen as they are in other viewing situations.

Doctors recommend that people ward off CVS by placing the screen about 4 or 5 inches below eye level, and 20 to 28 inches away from the eyes. Anti-glare screens and proper lighting may be useful in reducing eye problems.

PlayStation palmar hidradenitis

This newly identified skin disorder named after PlayStation is caused by holding the console too tightly for a long period of time.

"PlayStation palmar hidradenitis" or PlayStation rash, was first diagnosed in a 12 year old girl in Switzerland. She had developed painful lesions in her palm and nowhere else on her body. After questioning, the doctors discovered that just before the lumps appeared, the girl had been playing video games on her PlayStation for several hours daily.

"The tight and continous grasping of the hand-grips, together with repeated pushing on he buttons produce minor but continuous trauma to the palm surface," Vincent Piguet and colleagues at University Hospitals and Medical School of Geneva reported in the British Journal of Dermatology in 2009.

TV Screens and Photosensitive Seizures

As virtually all gamers have likely repeatedly seen in on-screen warnings, a small percentage of people may experience seizure or blackout when watching certain light patterns on a TV screen, or in video games.

About 1 in 100 people have epilepsy. and 3 to 5% of people who have a photosensitive for of it. It's not known what causes epilepsy, but abnormal wiring of the brain, or imbalance in brain's signalling chemicals are thought to have a role.

There is no cure for most types of epilepsy. People who have photosensitive epilepsy should avoid any regular moving patterns or flickering lights that might trigger the condition.


A 50g bar of plain chocolate contains 1.2mg of iron, and 45mg of magnesium. Milk chocolates are a reasonable source of calcium. To its countless worshipers, chocolate is not just a delicious treat; it's a lifestyle. Here are some facts that you don't know about chocolates that makes them a healthy choice.

Chocolates increases your longevity

Researchers from Harvard University studied 8,000 men for 65 years and found that those who ate a modest amount of chocolate up to three times a month, lived almost a year longer than those who didn't eat any. They concluded that it is likely to be due to the fact that cocoa contains antioxidants called polyphenols, also found in red wine, which prevent the oxidation of harmful cholesterol. Antioxidants are also known to protect against cancer.

Chocolates help relieve stress

This is thought to be because chocolates contain valeric acid, which serves as a relaxant and tranquilizer. Also, the sugar in chocolate may reduce stress-sugar has been shown to have a calming and pain-relieving effect on babies and animals because sweet taste actic=vate the opiate-like substance in the brain.

Chocolate could boost concentration

Chocolate has a reasonably low glycaemic index(GI), which means it gives long-lasting energy because it doesn't raise blood sugar quickly. Also, chocolate is a good source of chromium, which helps control blood sugar because it is involved in making glucose available in the body,

Helps boost your appetite

Chocolate contains cannabinoid-like substances that are known to affect the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls hunger. This isn't ideal if you're on diet but, for those who need to put on weight or who are convalescing, chocolate could be just what you need to help get your appetite back.

Chocolate is good for your heart health

Research shows that those who ingested small amounts of chocolates had a significant increase in good cholesterol, and improved biomarker that was not seen in higher doses. Those with a higher intake instead experienced benefits to their insulin resistance and a drop in triglycerides, which are involved in storing body fat.

Health And Lifestyle / 5 Foods That Are Healthier Cooked Than Raw
« on: October 15, 2016, 08:37:02 PM »

Is the raw or cooked version nutritionally superior? On one hand, raw food enthusiasts will have you thinking that cooking leaches all the key vitamins found in vegetables and destroys beneficial live enzymes. But, like most things, it's not that simple, Yes, raw veggies should be consumed raw but should be steamed, grilled, and roasted ones, as research shows that cooking can actually breakdown tough cell walls and make nutrients easier to absorb.

Here are 5 surprising veggies that wouldn't let you down when heated. 

1. Asparagus

Undoubtedly, raw asparagus is delicious, but cooking helps breakdown the thick cell walls that make it hard for our bodies to absorb asparagus' vitamins A,C,and E, and folate. In the case of asparagus, cooking also makes antioxidants, specifically ferulic acid, more available.

2. Tomatoes

Cooking tomatoes helps release the potent antioxidant lycopene which high intake of has been linked to lowering the risk of cancer and heart attacks. Cooking tomatoes break down the cell walls and release the lycopene for our bodies to enjoy. Though, cooking reduces the level of vitamin C found in tomatoes, but there are many more sources of vitamin C which makes trading this off worth it.

3. Mushrooms

Mushrooms are essentially indigestible if they are not cooked. When thoroughly heated, mushrooms release high amounts of nutrients like B vitamins, protein, and minerals, as well as a wide range of compounds not found in most foods.

4. Carrots

When heated, carrots have higher levels of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene belongs to a group of antioxidant substances called carotenoids, which gives fruits and vegetables their red, yellow, and orange coloring. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which plays an important role in vision, reproduction, bone growth and regulating the immune system.

5. Spinach

Raw versus cooked, raw spinach possess high levels of vitamin C, niacin, riboflavin, and potassium, on the flip side, cooking it increases the vitamin A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium, and iron-as well, important carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, are more absorbable when spinach is cooked.


It is well known that adults whose index finger is shorter than their ring finger were exposed to greater amount of testosterone when they were in the womb. Fingers may play a key role to play in accessing a woman's anxiety levels as well as athletic abilities, research by neuroscientists has revealed.

Testosterone play an important role in the study of accessing the relationship between the index finger and the ring finger to see how much testosterone a person was exposed to while in the womb, explained Carl Pintzka, a researcher at the Norwegian Competence Service for Functional MRI. People with index finger shorter than their ring finger are known to be exposed to more testosterone, thus enhancing their physical and athletic abilities, but leaving them exposed to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD) and Tourette's syndrome.

The theory was tested on a group of 42 women, looking out for the importance of finger length and brain functioning. These women's fingers were measured, Pintzka administered a drop of testosterone to half, while the other half was placed on placebo. The women were then given a number of mental tasks to solve.

"The greatest effects has been found for various physical and athletic measures, where high levels of parental testosterone are consistently linked with better capabilities," Pintzka said in a statement. " Beyond this we find a number of uncertain results, but a general feature us that high levels of testosterone generally correlate with superior abilities on tasks that men usually perform better, such as various spatial task like directional sense."

"The women who scored best on the mental rotation tasks had high levels of testosterone both prenatally and in their adult lives, while those who scored worst had low levels in both," Pintzka said. Conditions like anxiety and depression are associated with low levels of testosterone, making them more common in women.

Pintzka remains wary of giving definite conclusions as further study is required in the field.   

Health And Lifestyle / Is She A Wife Material?-Signs She Is Not
« on: October 14, 2016, 11:15:50 PM »

Not sure if the lady you're dating could one day be your bride? While what constitutes the best partner is obviously an individual's decision, here are some signs that she is likely not The One!

1. She's Dependent

On you for everything. When she wants to buy the smallest thing, she dials your number and ask you to buy it for her. When she wants to make any important decision, she stalls and waits till you see each other. There are some things she should be able to handle herself rather she waits for you to come make the decision for her, then you need to think twice.

Don't quote me wrongly, there is nothing bad in making decisions together or helping her buy stuffs, it only gets wrong when this happens all the time even on the slightest of things.

A wife needs to be a little bit more independent. Be able to run the home when her husband isn't home and make some crucial decisions in his absence. Definitely, you want a wife and not a pet.

2. She's Secretive

Your marriage partner should be able to share everything with you, so why is she locking her phone and her computer against you? Why doesn't she carry you along with some if not most of her plans? She goes out of town without dropping a word? Bro she definitely ain't a wife material.

3. She Is Not Your Best Friend

Sure, she's not going to be your bro, but she does need to be one of your absolute best friends.

4. You've Noticed That She's Mean-spirited

Whether it's laughing at the handicapped or pointing out your weaknesses, it's likely she has a cruel streak to her that you don't want to marry.

5. She Is Way Too Independent

While of course you want a strong and independent woman, a lady who wont let you be her rock may have some deep emotional issues.

6. She Is Demanding Of Your Time or Resources

Be wary of a woman who takes up all your resources for herself. A marriage is a partnership, not a monarchy.

7. She Finds Fault In Everything

Whether it's the fact that there are water spots on her fork at the restaurant or that her manicurist didn't match the glitter patterns on her toes perfectly, a woman who notices and comments on every little fault is a total drag.   


1. Remember that it can't grow overnight

Gaining new hair length might take some time. "Hair typically only grows about quarter of an inch to half an inch max-a month,"says celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend, "And that's only if it's super-healthy and doesn't have a ton of split ends. To help build a firm and healthy hair, some daily habits need to be kept in check and proper diet matters. Here are some tips you need to consider in growing healthy, firm, and long hair.

2. Eat Healthy

Eating a diet rich in protein and vital vitamins and minerals is an essential requirement to healthy hair growth. Opt for foods rich in vitamins A,B,C and E, iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, and selenium. Vitamin B-complex, in particular, is extremely important for making your hair grow faster.

Include a variety of foods like milk,cheese, yogurt, chicken, eggs, whole grains, salmon, spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, cabbage, parsley, grapefruits, avocado,  brown bread, oats and alfalfa in your diet to nourish your hair and scalp.

Avoid nutritional deficiencies because they tend to affect your hair adversely. For examlpe, vitamin E and zinc deficiencies lead to hair thinning and loss.

3. Castor Oil

Being rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, especially omega-9 fatty acids, castor oil promotes hair growth naturally.

You can mix castor oil with equal amount of coconut, olive, or almond oil and massage your scalp with it and leave for 30 to 45 minutes before you shampoo your hair.

4. Massage Your Hair

Massaging your hair promotes flow of blood to the scalp, in turn stimulating the hair follicles. In addition, deep condition your hair once a week wiyth a hot oil treatment or deep conditioning hair mask.

Apply warm oil or conditioner to your hair, gently rub your fingers on your scalp in a circular motion for three to five minutes and rinse the oil or conditioner out of your hair.

5. Stay Stress-free

Stress is one of the most important factors that contributes to hair loss. It is believed that stress can disrupt the normal hair cycle and trigger hairs to enter the telogen or fall-out phase. Thus, when striving for faster hair growth, minimize the stress in your life.

6. Take Vitamin and Herbal Supplements

In addition to eating a proper diet, you can take supplements like folic acid, biotin, kelp, fish oil, flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil, ginseng, saw palmetto, and others to augment hair growth.

Folic acid and biotin are B-complex vitamins that aid faster growth of hair. Ensure to consult with your doctor before taking any of these listed complements.

Health And Lifestyle / Can The Flu Shot Make You Sick?
« on: October 14, 2016, 09:09:13 AM »

No, a flu shot cannot cause flu illness. Flu vaccines given with a needle are currently made in two ways: the vaccine is made either with a flu vaccine virus that has been 'inactivated' and are therefore not infectious or with no flu vaccine virus at all. The most common side effects from the influenza shot are soreness, redness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given. Low-grade fever, headache and muscle aches also may occur.

In randomized, blinded studies, where some people get inactivated flu shots and others get salt-water shots, the only differences in symptoms was increased soreness in the arm and redness at the injection site among people who got the flu shot. There were no difference in terms of body aches, fever, cough, runny nose or sore throat.

So, never feel it is better to get the flu than the flu vaccine. Flu can be a serious disease, particularly among young children, older adults, and people with certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease or diabetes. Any flu infection can carry a risk of serious complications, hospitalization or death, even among otherwise healthy children and adults.

Getting vaccinated is a safer choice than risking illness to obtain immune protection.


A new study has found that women aged 65 and older with larger caffeine intakes (more than 261mg per day) are 36% less likely to suffer from dementia over 10 years of follow-up.

For the study, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee looked into the benefits of caffeine consumption on the brain function in postmenopausal women. Specifically, they wanted to find out whether almighty caffeine could delay or help prevent dementia and cognitive decline in 10 years. They were inspired by previous by previous research suggesting caffeine may have some protective affects against cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's Disease, which is the most common cause of dementia.

Caffeine has also be found to protect against Parkinson's disease, reduce kidney stones, and even prevent skin cancer.

So, it may well be that a few coffees a day could keep the doctor away.. or at least help you remember his last name correctly. Play safe though as caffeine overdose could lead to a seizure and be very dangerous.


The disease is characterized by an itching, oozing rash that can cover almost all of the skin. The constant itch to say nothing of the disfigurement, can be so unbearable that many patients consider suicide.There as never been a safe and effective treatment.

But now, a new medicine called Dupilumab has shown great promise in current clinical trials. Up to 38 percent of trials participants were completely or almost cleared of their inflamed red and scaly skin patches after 16-week course of treatment. For some, the relief was almost instantaneous.

The medicine which can be self administered via injection, had already been designated a "breakthrough therapy" by the FDA, which means it's on the fast-track to government approval.

The drug blocks two specific molecules of the immune system that are overproduced in patients with this and some allergic diseases. The only side effects were an increase in conjunctivitis, an inflammation  of the outer membrane of the eye, and swelling at the injection site.

"This is a landmark study," said Dr. Mark Boguniewicz, an atopic dermatitis expert at National Jewish Health and the University of Colorado School of Medicine who was not involved with the study. "For us in atopic dermatitis, we are entering a new era."

Many testimonies have been given by patients who have given the drug a trial. Daniela Velasco an event planner in Player del Carmen, Mexico said that "i knew immediately i was on the drug and not the placebo." Within a couple of weeks, the ugly red rash that had covered 90 percent of her body was almost gone. Even better, she said, "for the first time i didn't feel any itch at all."

Although the trial doesn't indicate whether Dupilumab should be taken for the rest of a person's life or for a short period of time, Dr Guttman-Yassky, a professor and immunology at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York predicted that because eczema is a lifelong disease, the medicine will require lifelong administration. 

Health And Lifestyle / 5 Rare Diseases That Affects The Blood
« on: October 12, 2016, 09:33:35 PM »

The blood can be said to be the bases of life as it performs many functions crucial to helping your body carry out the activities essential for life. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the tissues, white blood cells help you fight against infections,and blood platelets help your blood to cloth. Imagine what a serious threat to your health a blood disease could bring. Rare blood disease could attack any component of your blood and threaten your existence. There is good news though, even the rarest blood diseases are treatable.

1. Aplastic Anemia

Fewer than 1,000 people per year are diagnosed with aplastic anemia in the United States. Different from common iron-deficiency anemia, aplatic anemia arises a problem with the bone marrow that causes almost blood cell production to cease. In aplastic anemia, the stem cell that normally form into red  or white blood cells become damages and never mature. The most common treatment for aplastic anemia may include medications, blood transfusions and bone marrow or stem cell transplant.

2. Myelofibrosis

In myelofibrosis(MF), the bone marrow stops making red and white blood cells instead, it produces scar tissues in places where cell factories should be. Fewer red cells mean less oxygen delivery to the body. Fewer white cells make the body less able to fight infections. MF often results from a related disease like polycythemia vera (PV). Doctors usually treat myelofibrosis with medications or blood transfusions.

3. Polycythemia Vera

This uncommon condition usually affects people over the age of 60. In polycythemia vera, the bone marrow produce large amounts of defective red blood cells. These cells don't function correctly and serve to thicken the blood. Thick blood cannot be pumped easy through tiny arteries to deliver oxygen to vital tissues. Fortunately, PV generally progresses slowly. Many people who recieve prompt treatments and medical monitoring live long and healthy lives.

4. Hairy Cell Leukemia

Despite its name, hairy cell leukemia has nothing to do with your scalp, but has everything to do with your blood. Hairy cell leukemia is a type of blood cancer that causes the body to produce too many immune system cells called lymphocytes. These white blood cells normally fight infections but in hairy cell leukemia, they become misshapen and simply clog up the bloodstream. Hairy cell leukemia can be treated, and many people live for years with the remission.

5. Factor XIII Deficiency

Your blood consists of many components beyond blood cells. In fact, blood contains more that 20 proteins related to clotting alone. One of these proteins called Factor XIII (Factor 13) helps blood clot stick together. If a person lacks Factor III protein, the person could experience problems clotting or even spontaneous bleeding in the brain. Factor 13 deficiency is extremely rare, occuring perhaps just one birth per 5 million. Fortunately, two drugs are available to treat it.

Health And Lifestyle / 5 Reasons You Are Not Loosing Weight
« on: October 10, 2016, 04:45:11 PM »


The link between stress and obesity is being increasingly confirmed in scientific research, it's one of the prime reasons people can't lose weight. When we're under stress we're constantly churning out out the stress hormone adrenaline and that prepares your body to fight or flee from an attack. Blood supply is diverted away from processes such as digestion to the muscles an causes the body to use glucose, not body fat as its fuel.

Prolonged stress can lead to the production of cortisol which breaks down muscles thus slowing down your body's metabolism. Other studies have found that people with high cortisol levels tend to put weight on around their middles.

You are eating too much

Binge eating is a common side effect of dieting. It involves rapidly eating large amount of food, often much more than your body needs.

This is a pretty big problem for many dieters. Some of them binge on junk food, while others binge on relatively healthy foods, including nuts, nut butter, dark chocolate, cheese, etc.

Even is something is healthy, the calories still count. Depending on the volume, just a single binge can often ruin an entire week's worth of dieting.

You are not eating enough protein

Protein is the simple most important nutrient for losing weight. Eating protein at 25-30% of calories can boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day and make you automatically eat several hundred fewer calories per day. It can also drastically reduce cravings and desire for snacking.

A high protein intake also helps prevent metabolic slowdown, a common side effect of losing weight. It also helps prevent weight regain.

You still drink sugar

Sugary beverages are the most fattening items in the food supply. Our brains don't compensate for the calories in them by making us eat less of other foods. This isn't only true of sugary drinks like Coke and Pepsi;  it also applies to "healthier" beverages like Vitaminwater- which are also loaded with sugar.

Even fruit juices are problematic, and should not be consumed in large amounts. A single glass can contain a similar amount of sugar as several pieces of whole fruit!

You are not sleeping well

Good sleep is one of the most important thing to consider for your physical and mental health, as well as your weight.

Studies show that poor sleep is one of the single biggest risk factors for obesity. Adults and children with poor sleep have a 55% and 89% greater risk of becoming obese, respectively.

Health And Lifestyle / How To Prevent Gestational Diabetes
« on: October 10, 2016, 03:04:26 PM »

As many as 9 out of every 100 pregnant women will develop a condition known as gestational diabetes mellitus(GDM). It can put you at risk for problems during pregnancy and delivery.

When you are pregnant, your cells become slightly more resistant to insulin. This causes the amount of glucose or sugar in your blood to rise. The extra sugar helps more nutrients available to your baby.

There are no guarantees when it comes to preventing gestational diabetes- but the more healthy habits you can adopt before pregnancy, the better. If you've had gestational diabetes, these healthy choices may also reduce your risk of having it in future pregnancies or developing type 2 diabetes down the road. The risk of getting gestational diabetes is higher in women who:

. Are Hispanic, African-American, Native American, Asian American, or Pacific Islander

. Were overweight before your pregnancy

. Have a family history of diabetes

. Are age 25 or older

. Had gestational diabetes in an earlier pregnancy

. Had a very large baby (9 pounds or more) or a stillbirth.

here are some tips to help you reduce your risk.

Eat healthy foods.

Choose foods high in fiber and low in fat and calories. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Strive for variety to help you achieve your goals without compromising taste or nutrition.

Lose excess pounds before pregnancy

Doctors don't recommend weight loss during pregnancy. But if you're planning to get pregnant, losing  extra weight beforehand may help you have a healthier pregnancy.

Focus on permanent changes to your eating habit. Motivate yourself by remembering the long-term  benefits of loosing weight, such as a healthier heart, more energy and improved self-esteem.

Keep active

Exercising before and during pregnancy can help protect you from developing gestational gestation diabetes. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate activity on most days of week. Take a brisk daily walk. Ride your bike. Swim laps.

If you cannot fit a single 30-minute workout into your day, several shorter sessions can do just as much good. Park in the distant lot when you run errands, get off the bus one stop before your destination. Every step you take increases your chances of staying healthy.

Health And Lifestyle / How To Get Your Ex Girlfriend Back-7 Easy Steps
« on: October 10, 2016, 09:55:42 AM »

You lost them and now you want them back. Whether your breakup happened a day ago, three months ago, a year ago or even if she's seeing someone else now, you may not be able to just move on if you feel she was really the one.

Winning your ex girlfriend back isn't really the hard part. The hard part is keeping them.Take some time and go through these steps and you may find yourself getting a second chance at something you need to pursue. It might seem to be a hard work, but its worth it.

1. Take Some Time Apart

The No. 1 rule to any break up is to take some time apart.Don't contact her for at least two weeks. This is because breakups can be emotionally draining, and you need some time to put things into logical perspective.

Time apart will allow everything to cool down and be less emotionally charged. Plus, it gives you time to evaluate how you feel about the breakup, where things went wrong, and whether or not you really want to get her back.

2. Focus On What You Want

During these weeks away, take time to focus on you. Be single and enjoy it, and take the time to live your life free of compromise and really evaluate who you are and what you want.

Even though this time is for you, there are no harm sampling who else may be out there--unless you are 101% sure that you ant her back. If after two weeks of 'you' time and you still want her back, move on to the next step.

3.Understand What Went Wrong

The first step to getting her back is to really take a long time to think about what went wrong. The key to making things work is to fully understand the original issue so as to be able to build on your mistakes and prevent them from reoccurring. No woman is going to take you back if you don't fully understand why you broke up.

Try finding answers to questions like; What was she saying to you before the breakup? were there any sings you were heading for a breakup? did she say why she didn't like or love you any more?

Of course, you can go on thinking that she simply just changed , but she most likely had been dropping hints near the end of your relationship as to what she needed from you and what she wanted to change.

4.Reach Out And Contact Her

After you must have taken time to yourself and must have thought and understood some of what you feel went wrong, you still want to get her back, then its time you get back in touch.

Whatever you use, make sure you keep the message light and playful. A message saying "We have to talk" or "I want to get back together" is way too heavy and is not going to make her eager to see you. Show her the person she knew you to be the first time you started dating.

5.Fix A Meeting and Keep It Casual

The first time you see he post-breakup can be pretty overwhelming, but remember to keep you cool. Whether it's been two weeks or two years, you want to keep it casual. Always meet up with her during the day for lunch or coffee, like you're meeting up with a friend. Anything more involved will apear needy and like you're trying too hard to impress her.

Make sure to still keep it light, flighty, and fun, the goal here is to show her the guy she fell in love with, not the guy she broke up with. If after your first meet up with her you still want her back, then continue having casual meet-ups.

6.Go For It

After several meet-ups, if you still feel that you want to get back together, you can tell her what you've learned from your weeks apart.

Tell her what you have realized about why you broke up, and say you're working on things because of it. You want to show her you've grown and really heard what she's said.

7.Do The Work

After all the getting-back-together glory haze is over, it's time to really step up and start working on the relationship. Things you acknowledges while you were apart are now things you actually have to work on. You want to show her that you're willing to be a better you by changing your ways. This time around, you need good communication and lots of patience. If you have have this things, this time the relationship will last.

Health And Lifestyle / Signs You Can Completely Trust Your Girlfriend
« on: October 09, 2016, 04:19:54 PM »

Recently i rolled out an article on Signs You Can Completely Trust Your Boyfriend which you can find in these series, I also got series of comments on when i'll roll out an article talking bout signs you can trust your girlfriend completely which prompted this.

Every man has at least one horror story about a women who came into his life and turned out to be no * good. Maybe she cheated on him, stole from him or sabotaged his friendships. Whatever dirty deeds she did, some women can't be trusted and it's better to know that before she takes off with your stuff- or your heart.

The question that comes to mind is- how do you know if you can trust the girl/lady you're seeing? well just as in the case of guys we discussed in previous articles, here are four signs you need to look out for.

1. She is easy to reach

You have your life and she has hers. You should not expect her to be instantly at your call. However, it should not take her days to respond to a phone call or text message. Sudden and secret trips out of town are also signs things are not as they should be. A woman you can trust will have no trouble making her movement transparent. And if she occasionally takes a long time to respond to your calls, she will be able to give you a perfectly reasonable explanation each time.   

2. You have met her friends

A girl/lady with no friends is suspect, as is a girl with too many friends. In the former instance, you could be dealing with a sociopath-a woman unable to develop deep emotional ties with relationship. In the latter case, you maybe dealing with a woman who is clingy, insecure, and in constant need of attention. If your girl has a set of close friends, meeting them is a sign that she is ready to accept you more fully into her life. She wants you to know the people she cares most about and wants them to know you. Meeting her family will come only after the two of you are an official item.

3. She has open relations with exes

Bad break-ups are part of the baggage we all carry. Your girls is no different. She is better off leaving some of he former lovers completely alone. But you should be wary if she harbors anger and bitterness towards all of them. She should have something good to say about at least a few of her past boyfriends. In fact, it's a good sign if she still consider one or two of them friends; for that's an indication that she is a well-adjusted woman. A girl/lady with poisonous relationships with all of her exes is not someone you can count on, because in all likelihood you'll be the next man she'll be bad-mouthing.

4. She keeps your secrets

One of the surest tests of her loyalty is to tell her something private about yourself and see how well she holds it. A woman who throws it in your face when the two of you argue or makes references to it when she is drunk and in the company of friends cannot be trusted. The woman you share your life with must be a confidant. You must be able to share with her your deepest secrets and intimacies 

Health And Lifestyle / Is It Safe To Eat Raw Eggs?
« on: October 08, 2016, 09:16:22 PM »

Eggs are one of the world's healthiest foods. They contain numerous of important nutrients and can provide you with impressive health benefits.

Raw eggs do have all the same benefits as cooked eggs. However, eating raw eggs or foods containing them raises concerns about the risk of contaminating salmonella infection, which may cause food poisoning. Also, your absorption of some nutrients may be reduced or even blocked completely.

Eggs are one of the best sources of protein in your diet. In fact, eggs contain all 9 essential amino acids in the right ratios. For this reason, they're often referred to as a "complete" protein source.

However, eating the eggs raw may decrease your absorption of these quality proteins. One small study compared the absorption of protein from both cooked and raw eggs in 5 people. The study found that 90% of protein in cooked eggs were absorbed, but only 50% in raw eggs. In other words, protein in cooked eggs was 80% more digestible.

Although protein is better absorbed from cooked eggs, some other nutrients like vitamins A, B5, phosphorus and potassium may be slightly reduced by cooking.

Whether eating raw eggs is worth the risk is something you need to decide for yourself. Just remember that very young children, pregnant women, elderly people and individuals with weak immune systems should not eat eggs raw.
