What HFCS takes away, and why they are so important:Chromium

This entry was posted in General by Snowfoxx on

Simple information about the mineral Chromium, from the NY Times:
Chromium is important in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. Chromium stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, which are important for brain function and other body processes. It is an activator of several enzymes, which are needed to drive numerous chemical reactions necessary to life. Chromium is also important in insulin metabolism.

Chromium is only needed in trace amounts, but as it stimulates enzymes and and metobolism, it is essential in keeping the body healthy and insulin production on track. Lack of insulin leads to type-2 diabetes, and where that leads to is… going to be discussed in a future blog. Great sources for chromium are also the ones you find copper in. Basic meat proteins, bananas, spinach, apples, are just a few places, and they are foods we all love, so getting chromium back into a HFCS-laden system is not that difficult, once the altered corn sugar has been taken out. That is a slow process, and it takes time and lots and lots of discipline. Some green tea will help one along the way, so long as it is not sweetened with HFCS. Some basic condiments even can provide chromium, like black pepper, and butter.

Multiplex is an online comic about a fictitious movie theater Multiplex 10 Cinemas located in a fictional suburb of Chicago. The comic is full of drama, so way full of drama with a cast of characters that will keep you coming back for more.

The following is taken directly from their information page and instead of trying to paraphase it I figured I would just give it to you as is since it is written so well anyway. “Multiplex is a twice-weekly online comic about the movie-loving and customer-weary staff of your local movie theater. It is written and illustrated by Gordon McAlpin. It has been running continuously since July, 2006, and serves over 55,000 unique visitors per month (to the tune of 225,000 pageviews per month).” No matter what standard you set for comics online this one is good by any of those standards. I don’t care what anyone might say otherwise.

Whats Up With All The Recalls

What is it now a days. Every time you turn on the news you are seeing a story about the latest recall notice. I don’t understand why there are so many recalls. Don’t the companies believe in product safety and testing or quality control? Or is the cost of a good Q&A department too much to bare for all the greedy uncaring corporations out there. It just isn’t right or fair to the consumer for things to keep going this way.

Review: Iron Man 2

This film stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Don Cheadle as Rhodey and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. All were in the first film and are even better in their roles in this one. Samuel Jackson also returns as Nick Fury, the commander of S.H.I.E.L.D, the organization that eventually sets up the Avengers in the Marvel Universe. As a matter of fact this film setup for the next Avenger film Thor. Can’t wait to see that on. Anyway, enough about the back facts and on with the review of Iron Man 2.

In this film Tony, aka Iron Man, is slowly dieing because of blood poisoning from the chest implant that is keeping him alive. We learn that he has tried so many different elements to power it that he thinks he has tried everything. Later on in the film Nick Fury shows up and tells him that there is an answer but it is buried someplace in the stuff left behind by his father. It is the molecular diagram of a molecule that has yet to be discovered. A new element entirely. They never say what the element is, at least I don’t remember a name given to it, but it is just the thing to fix Tony’s problem with power as well as the poison in his blood.

HFCS takes away minerals that are very important to keeping your body healed and tissue strong. One of these very base minerals is copper. According to essortment.com’s fact about copper:

Copper comes in two forms, copper gluconate and copper sulfate. Copper is a trace element that is found in virtually every cell of the human body. It is a primary element in the production of melanin in the human body. Melanin is responsible for pigmentation in the eyes, hair and skin.
