How Anger Endangers Your Health

www.apa.org
It's normal to get angry. Even Christ got angry a lot of times. But the bible cautions us on the side effects of this emotion. Thus, it says, be angry but don't remain angry all day. Specifically, it says don't let sundown catch you still angry.

Is it okay then to be angry 23 hours a day? Well, try it and see what happens?

I believe the idea really is to cut-short anger instead of prolonging it. Anger triggers harmful chemical reactions in the body. These reactions then translate into toxins and higher acidity levels in the body (like higher uric acid levels) as well as the formation of free radicals. I don't know how, but that's what happens.

But you also need to express anger because suppressing it also builds up stress and pressure that may be harmful to your blood pressure and heart health.

Here's the picture---zero anger is bad, but so is too much of it.

So, you need to stay in-between. And that's where the bible wisdom comes into play---be angry but don't prolong it.

In my search for a healthy fit life and wellness, I discovered one vital truth---there's really no reason to stay angry a long time. Why? It's as simple as this---if you don't approve of something, then don't. You don't need to be very angry about anything. Just disapprove anything odious then forget about it.

I encounter guys and instances that really piss me off and I get angry, sometimes terribly angry. But I always follow the bible tip---let go of it immediately. Don't stay angry for more than 5, 15 or 30 minutes. The longest is an hour if it's really that bad.

After that, switch to happiness or cheery mode. You have the controls in you and you can easily change channel anytime you want.

First, I always think of God---I don't want to disappoint him. Second, I think about my health. No one and nothing is that important to wreck my health. I won't allow it.

Remember these things. This is for your health and wellness.

It's useless to be exercising regularly and eating healthy if everyday your character becomes more rotten because you harbor hate feelings in you.

What I do is laugh and eat with God, laugh with my wife, eat good dessert with her, or watch a real good movie on Youtube.

It always works.

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…
