10 hard facts about diabetes.

November 10, 2013

10 hard facts about diabetes.sugar

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases in the world, and sadly, there is no cure for this chronic and often deadly disease.

 1  Eating too much sugar does not cause diabetes

Eating too much sugar is unlikely to cause diabetes. A person develops diabetes due to a number of factors, such as:

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas completely stops making any insulin (a hormone that helps the body process glucose in foods for energy).

Type 2 diabetes is caused when the body doesn’t produce sufficient insulin and/or is unable to use insulin properly. This form of diabetes usually happens in people over 40 years of age, overweight, and has a history of diabetes in their family.

2 You cannot catch diabetes from someone else

You cannot catch diabetes from someone else like a cold or flu; it is not an infectious or contagious disease. Although scientists are not entirely sure what causes diabetes, there appears to be a genetic link with the disorder. This means that if diabetes runs in your family, you may have a higher chance of getting the disease.

3 Fat people do not always develop diabetes

Being overweight or obese does increase the risk of developing but it does not mean that an obese person will definitely become diabetic. And there are still many diabetics who were never overweight.

4 Diabetes can kill you

Diabetes is one of the top causes of death in Malaysia. A 2008 survey on the causes of deaths in Malaysia ranked diabetes fifth place in the top 10 causes of death in Malaysia.

5  Not only old people get diabetes

There is a growing number of children and teenagers who are developing type 2 diabetes. Experts suspect that this trend is linked to the increase in childhood obesity rates, poor diet, and lack of exercise.

6 Children cannot outgrow diabetes

Nearly all children who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 1, which is when the pancreas completely stops making any insulin. This deficiency is permanent and the ability for the body to produce insulin will never come back. Hence, children with type 1 diabetes will need to take insulin for the rest of their lives until a cure is found.

7  People with diabetes don’t need to eat special diabetic foods

Diabetics are recommended to follow a healthy diet, but it’s pretty much the same diet plan like anybody else. That means having a meal plan that consists of whole-grain foods, lean protein, vegetables, and fruit. A diet low in fat and moderate in both salt and sugar is also suggested. These so-called diabetic foods offer no special benefit, so it is best to give a pass on this rather costly label.

8 Diabetics can eat sweets or desserts

Being diabetic doesn’t mean that you have to completely cut out sweet things from your diet. As long as sweets and desserts are eaten in moderation and part of a healthy meal plan, diabetics can still enjoy their sweet treats. Being diabetic doesn’t mean that you have to completely cut out sweet things from your diet. As long as sweets and desserts are eaten in moderation and part of a healthy meal plan, diabetics can still enjoy their sweet treats from time to time. Diabetics should still cut down on sugar intake, but the key is to have a very small portion of sweet foods and save them for special occasions.

9 Taking insulin doesn’t mean that your diabetes is more severe

Taking insulin does not mean that your diabetes is more severe or that you have failed, rather, it actually helps you to manage your diabetes better which will help you lower your risk of potential complications. Diabetes change over time and people who start out with oral medication at first will most probably move on to insulin injections to provide better diabetes control.

10 Injecting insulin is not painful

Taking insulin injections should not hurt at all with practising good injection technique. Most insulin pen needles are also short and thin which help to minimise discomfort.

Surprising uses of common salt

October 16, 2013

Common Salt

Mankind has been using salt for many centuries, in the course of which we’ve amassed many uses for this amazing substance。

 

 Here are a few of the more practical uses for salt:

Pick up a dropped egg.
 

If an egg breaks on the kitchen floor, sprinkle salt on the mess and leave it there for 20 minutes. You will be able to wipe it right up.

Soothe a bee sting.
 

Wet the sting right away, then cover it with salt.

Eliminate a grease fire. 

Pour salt on top to smother it. (Never use water on a grease fire.)

Clean up oven spills.
 

If food boils over onto the oven floor, sprinkle salt on top to stop smoke and odor from forming. When the oven is cool, it will be easy to brush away the spot.

Set color.
 

If a dye may run, soak the garment for an hour in 1/2 gallon of water to which you have added 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup salt. If rinse water shows color, repeat. This is good for a single-colored fabric or madras. If the item is multicolored, dry-clean it.


Kill Poison Ivy

Add three pounds of salt to a gallon of soapy water. Spray it onto leaves and stems.

Make cream whip more easily and egg whites whip faster and higher.
 

Add a pinch of salt.

Test for rotten eggs.
 

Put an egg in a cup of water to which you add two teaspoons of salt. A fresh egg will sink, but one that’s rotten will float.

Clean the brown spots (from starch) off a nonstick sole plate (the bottom of your iron).

Sprinkle salt on a sheet of waxed paper, slide the iron across it, then rub lightly with silver polish.

Repel fleas.
 

Wash the doghouse with it.

Kill grass growing in cracks in the cement or between patio stones.
 

Sprinkle salt on the grass and pour very hot water over it. Or sprinkle coarse salt on the grass, let stand all day or overnight, then pour hot tap water over it.

Clean a glass coffee pot.
 

Fill it with 1/4 cup of table salt and a dozen ice cubes. Swish the mixture around, let it sit for half an hour, fill it with cold water and rinse.

Halt the mountain of suds from an overflowing washing machine.
 

Sprinkle salt on the top.

Clean artificial flowers.
 

Put them in a bag of salt and shake the bag. Take a look at the color of the salt and you will see what you have accomplished.

Keep windows frost-free.
 

Dip a sponge into salt water and rub it on windows, and they won’t frost up even when the mercury dips below 32 degrees; for the same effect on your car’s windshield, put salt in a little bag made of cheesecloth, moisten it slightly and rub it on.

Clean tarnished copper.
 

Fill a 16-ounce spray bottle with hot white vinegar and three tablespoons of salt. Spray it onto the copper, let it sit briefly, then rub clean.

(Do not do this to lacquered copper.)

Keep radishes safe in the garden.
 

Salt worms (cutworms) will be repelled if you sprinkle seeds with table salt, then cover with dirt.

Clean coffee and tea stains from china cups.
 

Rub them with salt.

Keep potatoes and apples from turning brown once they are sliced.
 

Put them in salted cold water.

Clean a cutting board.
 

Cover it with bleach and salt, scrub it with a stiff brush, then rinse with very hot water and wipe with a clean cloth. Repeat with each use.

Facts about Margarine

April 11, 2011

This is interesting . .. .

Margarine

was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.

It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.

How do you like it?

They have come out with some clever new flavourings….

DO YOU KNOW..

The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end…gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at

8 grams; compared to
5 grams for margarine.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods..

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarinehas a few and only because they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.

And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary heart disease

Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesteroland lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of breast milk.

Decreases immune response.

Decreases insulinresponse.

And here’s the most disturbing fact….

HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULEaway from being PLASTIC…. and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself:

Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:

* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow..

Why?

Because it is nearly plasticWould you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends…..

(If you want to butter them up’)!

Chinese Proverb:

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Pass the BUTTER PLEASE!

Another treatment for burns.

April 4, 2011

Once I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling
water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went
into the boiling water….

A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just
as I was screaming, and asked me if I had some plain old flour…I
pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He said to keep my hand
in the flour for 10 mins. which I did. He said that in Vietnam, this guy
was on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to
put the fire out…well, it not only put the flour out, but he never even had
a blister!!!!

SOOOO, long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins,
pulled it out and had not even a red mark or a blister and absolutley NO
PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself,
I use the flour and never ONCE have I ever had a red spot, a burn or a blister!
*cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour.

Miracle, if you ask me. Keep a bag of white flour in your fridge and you will be
happy you did. I even burnt my tongue and put the flour on it for about 10 mins.
and the pain was gone and no burn. Try it! BTW, don’t run your burn area under
Cold water first, just put it right into the flour for 10 mins and experience a miracle!

Because I care

Treating burns with egg white

March 29, 2011

The other benefits of egg white

One hopes never to be needing it, but just in case:… 
A simple but effective  way to treat burns with the help of egg white.
 
This method is used in the training of firemen.
 
When sustaining a burn, regardless the degree, the first aid is always placing the injured part under running cold water till the heat subsides.
 
And next spread the egg white over the injury.
 
Someone burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. Despite the pain she held her hand under running water, then took two eggs, parted the yolk from the egg white and slightly beat the egg white and put her hand in it. Her hand was so badly burned that the egg white dried and formed a white film. Later she heard that the egg is a natural collagen.
 
And during the next hour layer upon layer, she administered a white layer on her hand.  That afternoon she didn’t feel any more pain and the next day there hardly was a red mark to see. She thought she would have an awful scar but to her astonishment after ten days there was no sign of the burn, the skin had it’s normal colour again!
 
The burned area had been totally regenerated thanks to the collagen, in reality a placenta full of vitamins.
 
This advice can be useful for everyone.
Circulate it!
