One Simple Reason Why Most People are Sickly Today

senhospitals.in
I sometimes find myself in hospitals nowadays, not because I'm sickly but because some people are. I have to visit them being good friends of mine.

And what I note is this--there's often one simple reason why most people are sickly today--they don't eat enough fresh fruits.

And really, it costs cheap to get rid of diseases most of the time.

Well, it's different when most of your life you've been eating little to no fruit, and then you get sickly and you suddenly decide to eat lots of fruits from now on. It simply wouldn't work like when you start eating fruits way before you get sickly.

Although you can always try starting now even if you're already sickly.

Problem is, people see fresh fruits as mere dessert. They don't see it as a meal or part of a main meal. Moreover, you don't eat fruits like desserts you eat after eating main meals. You should eat fruits before eating anything. Lots of people do not know this simple health practice--or know it but just laugh about it.

But it's these basic health truths that matter and often decide the fate of your overall health.

I have the habit of eating fresh fruits early in the morning--latundan bananas, oranges (dalandan is always so cheap), kalamansi, guavas, papaya mangoes, avocados, melons, or whatever is available at our local fruit store. For instance, guavas are good--and they cost me only P10 for 5 big-enough and ripe-enough pieces. I so love guavas since I was a kid. It's rich in Vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals.

So many people are sickly today, especially when they get old, because all their lives they lacked fresh fruits. They eat apples and grapes only during Christmas, eat one small banana a day (if any), and eat other fruits only when they're in season.

Worse, instead of eating fresh fruits, they spend money daily on vices.

That makes their immune health suffer lack and deficiency.

When they get old, diseases easily attack their bodies. And then they realize it and start eating fruits, which is often too late.

If people had eaten lots of fresh fruits in their younger years, more people would be out of the hospitals today. That's cheap health and fitness with middle income budget for you.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

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…
