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!

BLACK RICE (Pulut Hitam)


I believe this is “Pulut Hitam” that is being referred to.

How absolutely wonderful – that bowl of “Pulut Hitam”
cooked with gula malacca (proper term
for ‘gula malacca’ is
 actually ‘palm sugar’ extracted from the coconut palm
which is not only much more flavoursome than white cane sugar
 but a much healthier choice too (!) being far richer in minerals
 (potassium, magnesium and zinc) and B vitamins than white
cane sugar and also much lower in glycemic index than
cane sugar and honey!) and topped with coconut cream,
 is a local favourite dessert which is not only YUMMILY DELICIOUS

Black rice is low in sugar but packed with healthy fibre and plant compounds

that combat heart disease and cancer, according to scientists

Black rice – revered in ancient China but overlooked in the West
– could be the greatest ‘superfoods’, scientists revealed today.

The cereal is low in sugar but packed with healthy fibre and plant
compounds that combat heart disease and cancer, say experts.

Scientists from Louisiana State University analysed samples of bran from black rice grown in the southern U.S. They found boosted levels of water-soluble anthocyanin antioxidants.

Anthocyanins provide the dark colours of many fruits and vegetables, such as blueberries and red peppers. They are what makes black rice ‘black’.
Research suggests that the dark plant antioxidants, which mop up harmful molecules, can help protect arteries and prevent the DNA damage that leads to cancer.
Food scientist Dr Zhimin Xu said: ‘Just a spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants than are found in a spoonful of blueberries, but with less sugar, and more fibre and vitamin E antioxidants.
‘If berries are used to boost health, why not black rice and black rice bran?
Especially, black rice bran would be a unique and economical material to increase consumption of health-promoting antioxidants.’

Centuries ago black rice was known as ‘Forbidden Rice’ in ancient China because only nobles were allowed to eat it.
Today black rice is mainly used in Asia for food decoration, noodles, sushi and desserts.
But food manufacturers could potentially use black rice bran or bran extracts to make breakfast cereals, beverages, cakes, biscuits and other foods healthier, said Dr Xu.
When rice is processed, millers remove the outer layers of the grains to produce brown rice or more refined white rice – the kind most widely consumed in the West.
Brown rice is said to be more nutritious because it has higher levels of healthy vitamin E compounds and antioxidants.
But according to Dr Xu’s team, varieties of rice that are black or purple in colour are healthier still.
They added that black rice could also be used to provide healthier, natural colourants.
Studies linked some artificial colourants to cancer and behavioural problems in children.
The scientists presented their findings today at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston .
Victoria Taylor, senior dietician at the British Heart Foundation,
 said: ‘In reality, it’s unlikely there’s a single food out there that will have a great impact on lowering your risk of heart disease.
Healthy eating is about a balanced diet overall.

‘It’s great if you can eat more of some groups of healthy foods,
 like having five portions of fruit and vegetable a day, but there
is still no conclusive evidence that ‘super foods’ alone make a real difference to your heart

Risk of Energy Saving Bulbs

March 16, 2011

Very important
Warning from the British Ministry of health
Regarding Energy Saving bulbs Low Energy Dimmable 18W Lilliput

     Warning from the British Ministry of health about Energy Saving bulbs
These type of bulbs which are called Energy Saving or low Energy bulbs, if it broken i t causes serious danger! As much that everybody will have to leave the room for at least 15 minutes.


Because it contains Mercury (poisonous) which cause migraine, disorientation, imbalances and different other health problems while inhalation.


And many people with allergies, causes them severe skin condition and other diseases just by touching this substance or inhaling it.


Also the ministry! warned by NOT cleaning the debris of the broken bulb with the vacuum cleaner, because it would spread the contamination to other rooms in the house while using the vacuum cleaner again.

&n bsp;

It must be cleaned through normal broom or brush and be kept in a sealed bag and thrown right away from the house in the ban for hazardous materials.  


Notice: Mercury is dangerous, more poisonous than lead or arsenic!!!!
