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. Read more...(524 words, estimated 2:06 mins reading time)
I just don’t understand the Republican party and all these religious right wingers, or is it the left wing nuts. I just can’t keep them straight, or is that twisted, any more. We go on and on about how we need to have young people join the military and serve our country but they just don’t believe it or they would allow our young gay men and women serve as well. Have you actually ever seen how a gay man or woman treats others? Have you wondered why they seem to have such a better capacity to love then straight people? They can because they are true to themselves. They don’t deny who or what they are. They are happy being what it is that they are. They are human, they feel, they bleed and can be hurt just like everyone else. The don’t ask don’t tell policy is nothing more then a farce and a political ploy and control mechanism.

Jackie Chan starred in the Walt Disney classic Around The World In 80 Days. This is by far one of the best Around The World In 80 Days films to date. At least that is what I feel. It gives so much more to the characters and they are not dry or dull like in previous incarnations of films with the same name. If Jules Verne saw this version I think that he would instantly fall in love with it. This one is definitely a family classic that will be enjoyed by generations to come.
With that said, I would have to rate Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of Prince Hapi as a scene that would have been better off left on the cutting room floor. The guy is a great actor in his own right, but as this one character it just didn’t work right. It seemed forced and thrown in at the last minute to boost ratings or something. Remember, that is my opinion and may not be what actually happened, it just feels that way. Read more...(578 words, 1 image, estimated 2:19 mins reading time)
In an earlier post, I mentioned some reasons to avoid altered corn sweeteners. In the next few days, I’ll tell you exactly what this slow poison has taken away from our bodies and why these things are so important to make our bodies function properly.
Today’s focus is on the hormone, Leptin. According to Wikipedia:
Leptin acts on receptors in the hypothalamus of the brain where it inhibits appetite by (1) counteracting the effects of neuropeptide Y (a potent feeding stimulant secreted by cells in the gut and in the hypothalamus); (2) counteracting the effects of anandamide (another potent feeding stimulant that binds to the same receptors as THC, the primary active ingredient of marijuana); and (3) promoting the synthesis of ?-MSH, an appetite suppressant. This inhibition is long-term, in contrast to the rapid inhibition of eating by cholecystokinin (CCK) and the slower suppression of hunger between meals mediated by PYY3-36. The absence of a leptin (or its receptor) leads to uncontrolled food intake and resulting obesity. Several studies have shown that fasting or following a very-low-calorie diet (VLCD) lowers leptin levels. It might be that on short-term leptin is an indicator of energy balance. This system is more sensitive to starvation than to overfeeding. That is, leptin levels do not rise extensively after overfeeding. It might be that the dynamics of leptin due to an acute change in energy balance are related to appetite and eventually to food intake. Although this is a new hypothesis, there are already some data that support it. Read more...(701 words, estimated 2:48 mins reading time)
Just got done watching a film that I had been putting off watching for quite some time. The name of the film is Zombieland featuring the talents of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.
When first I started watching the film one of the first scenes was nothing but blood all over the place. I was thinking “Great, another blood bath” but I kept watching. It wasn’t long before I was drawn into the film and the struggle of 4 people, possibly the last 4 people in the US. The story really gets going when Columbas, played by Eisenberg meets Tallahassee played by Harrelson and they team up trying to head east. Along the way they stop at a shopping center so that Tallahassee can try and find some Twinkies. The character really has a thing for them and it might just be because of his loosing his son to the zombie infestation that is covering the globe. Zombies are everywhere and just one bite will turn you into one. Read more...(452 words, 1 image, estimated 1:48 mins reading time)
