Climate Change to Worsen in PH in 2016? Here's How to Protect Your Health Against Extreme Climates

thestir.cafemom.com
PAGASA announced on TV early this year that February and March are going to be "very hot" months due to worsened El Nino conditions.

El Nino is supposed to be a terrible dry spell caused by climate change, although PAGASA is sometimes proven wrong about its predictions.

But whenever it's wrong, I don't complain. I just thank God--and perhaps make a little joke about it.

However, a lot of other reports point to the accuracy of PAGASA's forecast.

And when things like a terrible dry spell or sudden weather change happen, most people easily succumbed to ailments, like the common cough and cold--though if left as a "common" sickness, it may lead to the flu, which no one likes.

So, if climate change is going to worsen, you may be wondering about how to protect your health against extreme climates--and most especially the health of your loved ones, of course.

Here are some proven tips:

1. Drink more water. Our bodies are some 60 to 70 percent water. So, if you get dehydrated because you always forget (or are often lazy) to drink enough, your body systems start malfunctioning. It can even cause death. So drink a lot of water and fresh fruit juices. Fresh fruit juices hydrate and nourish you to give your immune system a better fighting chance against ailments. Drink more when going out.

2. Take natural health supplements. I take different kinds--MX3, Vital C or other sodium ascorbate brands, and others. I also take lots of cheap but fresh fruits in the morning (for my cheap health and fitness with middle income budget).

3. Take a bath daily. In hot weather, I sometimes bathe 2 to 3 times a day to keep my body cool and body temp normal.

4. Malls. When outside and I need to walk to places, I do it by walking through air-conditioned malls.

5. Look for sheds and shadows. When outside, I look for sheds and stay there as much as possible. Electric posts and wires above you cast shadows on the street. Follow them so the shadows cover your head and part of your body if you need to walk in the streets and find no sheds.

6. Always bring your umbrella. It's the best option.

7. Stay home as much as possible. It's better than the best option.

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…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…

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.
