man's 'I need to quit texting because I could die in a car accident', ends in
a car accident.
With all the horrific stories about texting and driving,
it's amazing how many people continue to do it.
And as QMI Agency reports,
a 21-year-old man got a terrifying reply from the universe to one of his
The man had just typed: "I need to quit texting
because I could die in a car accident" to a friend when he lost control of
his pickup, flew off a bridge and went
careening into a ravine 35 feet below.
The Texas college student survived - but barely.
A hospital report revealed
he suffered traumatic brain injuries, a broken neck, a punctured lung, compound
leg fractures, a fractured skull, sternum and rib
fractures, and a fractured face
that required reconstructive surgery. He required extensive surgery and six months
To his credit, the young man is turning his ordeal into
a living lesson. He plans to spread the message, by example, that you can be a
great driver and
an even more dexterous texter, but there's a reason why both machines should be operated separately.
Your life is the reason

Let's hear it for a Quebec mayor...
"PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK"
A commercial promoting pork says:
"PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK"
The MAYOR REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CAFETERIA MENU and EXPLAINS WHY:
Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb.
The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why.
"Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate.
"Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. "They must
understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who, so generously, welcomed them.
"Muslims must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic. Canada accepted many immigrants before Muslims showed up (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants)."
"Just like other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity or their culture.
"And, if Canada is a land of welcome, it's not the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole.
"Finally, they must understand that in Canada (Quebec) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain."
The municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia.
"For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Sharia.
"If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than elsewhere. We will not let you drag Canada down to the level of those 57 countries."
"Ask yourself this question - just once: "Why is it better here in Canada than where you come from?" "A canteen with pork on the menu is part of the answer."
If you came to Canada with the idea that you will displace us with your prolific propagation and eventually take over the country, you should pack up and go back to the country you came from. We have no room here for you and your ideology.
If you feel the same, forward it on.

OK, well, the extremely biased opinions of the various “beef boards, fish factions, and chicken coalitions” have had their free reign for the last 50 years,
Finally it’s time to hear what the actual doctors, nutritionists, University studies and medical tests have to say on the matter of bacon’s nutritional benefits to our health.
Here is a list of the Top 10 Reasons why bacon is actually healthy for you!
Pork-Powered Protein: The protein found in bacon is extremely valuable to maintaining our energy levels and a fully functioning, healthy body, with a minimum of those nasty, waist, thigh and butt expanding, fat-building carbohydrates.
Bacon’s Blood-Balancing Bounty: Several university and medical center studies have shown that including bacon as a regular, moderate part of one’s diet naturally works to lower the body’s blood pressure and blood sugar levels, helping to prevent and/or alleviate the effects of diabetes, as well as heart disease, stroke and heart attack.
-----Flushing Fat With Flavourful, Friendly Flesh: While people have heard horror stories for years that bacon is full of harmful fat and after all, if you are what you eat, who wants to be a PIG? But the facts are completely the opposite, as bacon helps to fully satiate our appetite with high protein / low carb energy, helping the body lose weight, raise one’s metabolism and build leaner, stronger muscles.
Bacon actually has less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than many popular cuts of beef and chicken. While some fish has less fat and cholesterol than bacon, bacon has more protein power and does not contain toxins such as mercury.
Bacon’s Brain Building Business: Bacon is chock full of a very important nutrient called “choline,” which helps increase our intelligence and memory, from conception to Senior Status, and has been shown in University studies to help fight off the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and other chronic mental impairments.
Bacon Lets You “Pig Out” On Essential Vitamins & Minerals: Bacon provides us with substantial amounts of the important, necessary vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function healthfully. From bacon, we receive: 65% of our Recommended Daily Intake of Thiamin (Vitamin B1) as well as 47% of our Niacin (Vitamin B3), 38% of our Vitamin B12, 36% of our Zinc, 24% of our Vitamin B6, 22% of our Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), 22% of our Phosphorus, 10% of our Pantothenate, 10% of our Magnesium, 9% of our Iron and the Protein to fat balance in bacon is actually 4 to 1, which is one of the highest protein to fat balances found in any meat, fish or fowl found on Earth.
Effective Mood Elevator: Bacon makes you feel happy, satisfied, blissful, which greatly reduces stress in our lives and effectively relieves the negative effects of frustration, self-deprivation and sense of lack in one’s existence.
Nitrates and Nitrites – Now Non-Issues: The fact is, while it is true that nitrates and nitrites are unhealthy for your body, what most pro -veggie, chicken and fish nutritionists fail to tell you is that you can easily avoid nitrates and nitrites by simply
(A) not burning / charring / over cooking your bacon or by
(B) Baking your bacon in the oven.
Some people also choose to avoid nitrates and nitrites by
(C) cooking their bacon in the microwave, however, some medical research shows a strong correlation between microwaved proteins (all meats and proteins, from beef to fish, from cheese to eggs and even milk) and cancers caused by protein mutation under the conditions of microwave bombardment, so we recommend using the oven, 400 degrees, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
P.S. if you always include some dairy and citrus in your bacon meal, the vitamins A, D and E work to effectively prevent conversion of “nitrates and nitrites into dangerously toxic “nitrosamines” in the stomach, rendering them harmless to the body.
Bacon Power Now Expands To Our Vehicles and Industry: Yes, believe it or not, a company in The United Kingdom, TMI Foods has already successfully found a way to use bacon fat and grease to manufacture a powerful, low emission, environmentally friendly, all-natural, bio-diesel fuel that can be used to effectively and inexpensively run anything from motor vehicles to turbines and from the various engines of industry to illuminating and empowering generators. That’s right … Pig Power now also means “Power To The People!”
Universally Beloved Flavor Enhancer: Because bacon tastes so amazingly awesome, we’re a LOT more willing to set many of our finicky ways aside to enthusiastically eat many of the boring, icky, lackluster, so-called, “healthy, nutritious food items” that are supposedly good for us, as long as they come wrapped in bacon or with lots of bacon bits broken up and served with or within them.
While We Heart Bacon – Bacon Heart’s Your Heart: While people over the years have mistakenly made jokes about bacon being a leading contributor to heart disease, actually there are in fact several studies that show that the Omega-3 Fatty Acids and “choline” found in bacon can actually protect the heart from developing detrimental problems, as well as actually help HEAL such anomalies, after they have occurred!
Unlike the Omega-3 Fatty Acids supplements derived from fish sources, the ones that come from bacon aren’t chock full of poisonous mercury, like most of the popular fish oil versions are. So bacon Omega-3’s can not only help prevent heart disease, as well as lower your cholesterol, reduce inflammation and improve circulation, but also help you to avoid mercury and other toxic poisons being regularly spewed into our planet’s oceans……………….. ENJOY! BACON IS GOOD FOR YOU…..

9 Health Benefits of Eating Oats and Oatmeal
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth.
They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits.
These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease.
Here are 9 evidence-based health benefits of eating oats and oatmeal.
What Are Oats and Oatmeal?
Oats are a whole-grain food, known scientifically as Avena sativa.
Oat groats, the most intact and whole form of oats, take a long time to cook. For this reason, most people prefer rolled, crushed or steel-cut oats.
Instant (quick) oats are the most highly processed variety. While they take the shortest time to cook, the texture may be mushy.
Oats are commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal, which is made by boiling oats in water or milk. Oatmeal is often referred to as porridge.
They’re also often included in muffins, granola bars, cookies and other baked goods.
Bottom Line: Oats are a whole grain that is commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal (porridge).
1. Oats Are Incredibly Nutritious
The nutrient composition of oats is well-balanced.
They are a good source of carbs and fiber, including the powerful fiber beta-glucan (1, 2, 3).
They also contain more protein and fat than most grains (4).
Oats are loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidant plant compounds. Half a cup (78 grams) of dry oats contains (5):
- Manganese: 191% of the RDI.
- Phosphorus: 41% of the RDI.
- Magnesium: 34% of the RDI.
- Copper: 24% of the RDI.
- Iron: 20% of the RDI.
- Zinc: 20% of the RDI.
- Folate: 11% of the RDI.
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin): 39% of the RDI.
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): 10% of the RDI.
- Smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B3 (niacin).
This is coming with 51 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber, but only 303 calories.
This means that oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.
Bottom Line: Oats are rich in carbs and fiber, but also higher in protein and fat than most other grains. The are very high in many vitamins and minerals.
2. Whole Oats Are Rich in Antioxidants, Including Avenanthramides
Whole oats are high in antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds called polyphenols. Most notable is a unique group of antioxidants called avenanthramides, which are almost solely found in oats (6).
Avenanthramides may help lower blood pressure levels by increasing the production of nitric oxide. This gas molecule helps dilate blood vessels and leads to better blood flow (7, 8, 9).
In addition, avenanthramides have anti-inflammatory and anti-itching effects (9).
Ferulic acid is also found in large amounts in oats. This is another antioxidant (10).
Bottom Line: Oats contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure and provide other benefits.
3. Oats Contain a Powerful Soluble Fiber Called Beta-Glucan
Oats contain large amounts of beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber.
Beta-glucan partially dissolves in water and forms a thick, gel-like solution in the gut.
The health benefits of beta-glucan fiber include:
- Reduced LDL and total cholesterol levels (1).
- Reduced blood sugar and insulin response (11).
- Increased feeling of fullness (12).
- Increased growth of good bacteria in the digestive tract (13).
Bottom Line: Oats are high in the soluble fiber beta-glucan, which has numerous benefits. It helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, promotes healthy gut bacteria and increases feelings of fullness.
4. They Can Lower Cholesterol Levels and Protect LDL Cholesterol From Damage
Heart disease is the leading cause of death globally. One major risk factor is high blood cholesterol.
Many studies have shown that the beta-glucan fiber in oats is effective at reducing both total and LDL cholesterol levels (1, 14).
Beta-glucan may increase the excretion of cholesterol-rich bile, thereby reducing circulating levels of cholesterol in the blood.
Oxidation of LDL (the “bad”) cholesterol, which occurs when LDL reacts with free radicals, is another crucial step in the progression of heart disease.
It produces inflammation in arteries, damages tissues and can raise the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
One study reports that antioxidants in oats work together with vitamin C to prevent LDL oxidation (15).
Bottom Line: Oats may lower the risk of heart disease by reducing both total and LDL cholesterol levels and protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidation.
5. Oats Can Improve Blood Sugar Control
Type 2 diabetes is a common disease, characterized by significantly elevated blood sugars. It usually results from decreased sensitivity to the hormone insulin.
Oats may help lower blood sugar levels, especially in people who are overweight or have type 2 diabetes (16, 17, 18).
They may also improve insulin sensitivity (19).
These effects are mainly attributed to beta-glucan’s ability to form a thick gel that delays emptying of the stomach and absorption of glucose into the blood (20).
Bottom Line: Due to the soluble fiber beta-glucan, oats may improve insulin sensitivity and help lower blood sugar levels.
6. Oatmeal is Very Filling and May Help You Lose Weight
Not only is oatmeal (porridge) a delicious breakfast food — it’s also very filling (21).
Eating filling foods may help you eat fewer calories and lose weight.
By delaying the time it takes your stomach to empty of food, the beta-glucan in oatmeal may increase your feeling of fullness (12, 22).
Beta-glucan may also promote the release of peptide YY (PYY), a hormone produced in the gut in response to eating. This satiety hormone has been shown to lead to reduced calorie intake and may decrease your risk of obesity (23, 24).
Bottom Line: Oatmeal may help you lose weight by making you feel more full. It does this by slowing down the emptying of the stomach and increasing production of the satiety hormone PYY.
7. Finely Ground Oats May Help with Skin Care
It’s no coincidence that oats can be found in numerous skin care products. Makers of these products often list finely ground oats as “colloidal oatmeal.”
The FDA approved colloidal oatmeal as a skin-protective substance back in 2003. But in fact, oats have a long history of use in treatment of itch and irritation in various skin conditions (25, 26, 27).
For example, oat-based skin products may improve uncomfortable symptoms of eczema (28).
Note that skin care benefits pertain only to oats applied to the skin, not those that are eaten.
Bottom Line: Colloidal oatmeal (finely ground oats) has long been used to help treat dry and itchy skin. It may help relieve symptoms of various skin conditions, including eczema.
8. They May Decrease The Risk of Childhood Asthma
Asthma is the most common chronic disease in kids (29).
It’s an inflammatory disorder of the airways — the tubes that carry air to and from a person’s lungs.
Although not all children have the same symptoms, many experience recurrent coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
Many researchers believe early introduction of solid foods may increase a child’s risk of developing asthma and other allergic diseases (30).
However, studies suggest that this doesn’t apply to all foods. Early introduction of oats, for example, may actually be protective (31, 32).
One study reports that feeding oats to infants before the age of 6 months is linked to a decreased risk of childhood asthma (33)
Some research suggests that oats may help prevent asthma in children when fed to young infants.
9. Oats May Help Relieve Constipation
Elderly people often experience constipation, with infrequent, irregular bowel movements that are difficult to pass.
Laxatives are often used to relieve constipation in the elderly. However, while they’re effective, they’re also associated with weight loss and reduced quality of life (34).
Studies indicate that oat bran, the fiber-rich outer layer of the grain, may help relieve constipation in older people (35, 36).
One trial found that well-being improved for 30 elderly patients who consumed a soup or dessert containing oat bran daily for 12 weeks (37).
What’s more, 59% of those patients were able to stop using laxatives after the 3-month study, while overall laxative use increased by 8% in the control group.
Bottom Line: Studies indicate that oat bran can help reduce constipation in elderly individuals, significantly reducing the need to use laxatives.
How to Incorporate Oats Into Your Diet
You can enjoy oats in several ways.
The most popular way is to simply eat oatmeal (porridge) for breakfast.
Here is a very simple way to make oatmeal
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats.
- 1 cup (250 ml) of water
- A pinch of salt
Combine ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook the oats, stirring occasionally, until soft.
Combine ingredients in a bowl
and microwave 2 minutes
and serve with your favorite sweetener and milk
Bottom Line: Oats can be a great addition to a healthy diet. They can be eaten as oatmeal (porridge) for breakfast and , added to baked goods and more.
Oats Are Incredibly Good For You
Oats are an incredibly nutritious food packed with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
In addition, they’re high in fiber and protein compared to other grains.
Oats contain some unique components — in particular, the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants called avenanthramides.
Benefits include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation.
In addition, they are very filling and have many properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food.
At the end of the day, oats are among the healthiest foods you can eat.
What Are the Benefits of Egg Yolks?
INCREDIBLE BUT TRUE
Eating egg yolks on their own
has several health benefits.
Eggs have three separate sections -- the shell the white and the yolk.
When you crack open a raw egg, the yolk is the yellow, circular section;
a growing embryo feeds off this part of the egg as it grows within the
protective shell. While the health benefits of egg whites are widely known,
egg yolks have health benefits, too.
Egg yolks contain more vitamins -- and larger quantities of those
vitamins -- than egg whites. Each egg yolk contains seven vitamins
: B6, folate, vitamin B-12, A, D, E and K. Of those, vitamins A, D, E and K
are found only in egg yolks and not in egg whites. In fact, egg yolks
are one of only a handful of foods in which vitamin D is naturally found.
Like vitamins, minerals are crucial nutritional building blocks,
essential for carrying out body functions like balancing electrolytes.
Egg yolks -- and egg whites -- each have 13 varieties of minerals
. These minerals include calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium,
sodium and selenium. Although both the egg white and egg yolk
contain these minerals, the yolk has larger amounts of most.
For example, 90 percent of an egg's calcium is in its yolk; 93 percent
of its iron content is in the yolk, with just 7 percent in the white.
Carotenoids in egg yolk -- particularly the carotenoids lutein
and zeaxanthin -- show promise for promoting eye health.
These carotenoids, which are colorful pigments that give egg yolks
their yellow color, lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration
and cataracts, according to researchers. They act as antioxidants
in the eye, protecting it from free radicals that can damage different parts
of the retina, impacting its ability to correctly focus light.
Benefits of Choline
Egg yolks -- and the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients found
within them -- also help promote heart and cardiovascular health.
Not only does the moderate consumption of egg yolks not show a
direct connection to heart disease, but nutrients in the yolk --
such as choline -- help to regulate cardiovascular function.
Additionally, a study by the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill found women with the highest level of choline
intake were 24 percent less likely than women who got the
least choline in their diets to develop breast cancer.

Once your immunity is strong,

which can affect disease and aging
in the body:
Blue Berries bring you the brightest ray of hope,
for they are laden
with anti oxidants
and rank number 1
in the world
of anti oxidants.
This is mainly due to presence of
a pigment responsible
for the blue color
of the blue berries.
The abundance of

for this as well.
