Smokers Get Younger

ismokeherb.co.uk 
No kidding--smokers get younger. I mean, more and more kids smoke today. Everywhere I look I see kids--merely in high school--wasting their allowance on cigarettes. And they look like it's some kind of an achievement.

Before, kids trying to smoke hid from plain view. Today, they smoke openly in the streets and parks and some of them smoke with their parents. No kidding.

Government is trying to control this by increasing taxes on cigarettes, as if that were a solution. It's like banning parents from giving kids school allowance. You know it won't work, besides being ridiculous. I wonder why government can't plain ban cigarettes in the country when other countries are doing it?

Even funnier is how natural health supplements are not allowed to declare therapeutic claims but cigarettes are allowed to be sold in public. And yet they all admit that cigarettes can kill you.

Anyway, smoking cannot be remedied by laws or taxes. It should all start in the family, particularly with the parents (and the president of the country). If we want this madness to stop, parents should set as examples. Without this, smoking will continue to claim the young lives of our youth.

I can't imagine why folks with hardly any money can still afford to burn it by smoking cigarettes. You'd see poor folks wasting hard earned money on them. Can't they stop to think a while what the heck they're doing?

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
