RE: Strange facts - Breast Health

Posted 7/31/2010 10:00:00 AM

"A study carried out by German researchers suggests that staring at women's breasts is good for men's health and increases their life expectancy.

"According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

I've been trying to tell my wife that for the last 19 years, she doesn't believe me. If the study is true I should live to be 105!

I've also explained to my wife how beer lowers cholesterol but she is not buying that either.

Oh look it is almost time for my cholesterol medicine.

RE: Strange facts - 5 Healthy Reasons To Have a Beer Today

Posted 8/6/2010 2:12:00 PM

5 Healthy Reasons To Have a Beer Today


1- Prevent Osteoporosis


Researchers at the University of California took on the very tough job of analyzing 100 commercially-available beers. They found that most of them contained enough silicon to benefit bone health (past studies have found that women who are light to moderate beer drinkers have better bone density than non-beer drinkers). Recommended daily dose: No more than two cold ones. And opt for Ales and Pale Ales, which have higher levels of the bone-bolstering silicon than darker varieties. 

2- Lower Risk of Heart Disease

A number of studies have shown that moderate consumption of alcohol--beer included--may lower your risk of heart disease. In one Harvard study, healthy-minded types who rated their alcohol intake as moderate had 40 to 60 percent lower incidence of heart attack.

3- Lower Cholesterol

Research has found that hops--the bitter flavor that balances out the sweetness of beer-- is a great source of polyphenols, which lower bad cholesterol, fight cancer, and give your immune system a boost. This particular study was funded by a beer association (And, fun fact: The subjects were nuns!), but its findings have been backed up by unaffiliated experts who agree that, in moderation, the polyphenols in beer may have a positive effect on HDL and LDL.

4- It's a Brain Bev

A study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that moderate drinking may be associated with better brain function. Women who consumed up to two drinks a day scored 20 percent higher on a cognitive functioning test than those who had less than one drink.

5- It Can Keep You Hydrated
 
Researchers at Granada University in Spain say that beer beats water when it comes to hydration. Subjects ran on a treadmill in 104-degree temps until they couldn't take it anymore, then their hydration levels, motor skills, and ability to concentrate were measures. Half of the runners were given two half pints of Spanish lager while the other half were given good ol' H2O. The beer drinkers scored slightly better--a result that's attributed to sugars salts, and bubbles in the beer enhancing the body's ability to soak up water. As a bonus, the carbs replaced the calories they just sweated out. I'm going to stick to water post-workout, but at least I can feel confident that a few drinks tonight won't completely sabotage my workout tomorrow.

RE: Strange facts - Amazing Home Remedies

Posted 8/26/2010 7:51:00 AM

THESE REALLY WORK!! 

I checked this out on Snopes and it's for real!
AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES:


1. AVOID CUTTING YOURSELF WHEN SLICING VEGETABLES BY GETTING SOMEONE ELSE TO
 HOLD THE VEGETABLES WHILE YOU CHOP.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. AVOID ARGUMENTS WITH THE FEMALES ABOUT LIFTING THE TOILET SEAT BY USING THE SINK.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SUFFERERS ~ SIMPLY CUT YOURSELF AND BLEED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON YOUR VEINS. REMEMBER TO USE A TIMER.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. IF YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH, TAKE A LARGE DOSE OF LAXATIVES. THEN YOU'LL BE AFRAID TO COUGH.

 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40.  IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
==========================================

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE
 WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

A- An alien in communication with the mother ship.
B- A time traveller.
C- A member of a top secret gov't org.

What Do You Think?

C is the most likely but A or B would not surprise me.

Look very closely from the 45-50 second time frame and tell me that is a human hand.


No way technology.msnbc.com got hoaxed easily. If this is a hoax it was done by a multinational corporation or gov't with a lot of money behind it because nobody else could afford the technology required to pull this off.

What do you think now after watching super closely?
