Sugar




The following information was published by Roger Mason 

Sugars are everywhere. Sugars are even in the health food stores. Most all soy milks (especially vanilla and cocoa) are sweetened with sugar (unsweetened soymilks are readily available). How can you keep your sugar intake as low as possible? Take the concept of desserts out of your life. Most Asian cultures do not have the concept of dessert. Limit your intake of fresh (local, not tropical) fruit to 10% of your diet. Do not drink fruit juice. Some people are sugar sensitive, and should not even eat fruit. Fruits contain sucrose (the same as white sugar) and fructose (the same as high fructose corn syrup). Don’t eat dried fruit. Don’t sweeten your tea, and you shouldn’t be drinking coffee anyway. (If you have a cup of coffee, drink it plain so you’ll enjoy it less.) Read your labels. You’ll find sugar in bread, soup, ketchup, salad dressing, cereals, crackers, and all kinds of foods you would never expect to find it. You find sugar everywhere in our society. One hundred and sixty pounds a year per person. No one else on earth does this.

Pill Problem

BBC News picture

A strange happening in England that they plan to help patients that are addicted to tablets provided by their doctor. According to the authorities that know better than the doctor, doctors are over prescribing heavy medicine to patients and turning people into drug addicts for prescription drugs. This is all very peculiar. Why are doctors giving their patients more than 4 weeks supply if they know that by continue taking these drugs that the person is going to need more help and more financial resources to break free. Surly here the onus lays with the prescribe-r.

Actually with the plan to cut out about 3000 Pharmacy's in England they may well cut down on prescriptions. It is already a pain in England to be able to get off the shelf in a Pharmacy some things that doctors prescribe. Living in a city one person was unable to get a hold of an ointment prescribed from any Pharmacy. May be Online Pharmacy's will be the only answer.

Plastic Bottles

 PLASTICS 
 The term “plastics” includes materials composed of various elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine, and sulfur. The manufactured or synthetic plastics are often designed to mimic the properties of natural materials. Plastics, also called polymers, are produced by the conversion of natural products or by the synthesis from primary chemicals generally coming from oil, natural gas, or coal.

Plastics are derived from organic products. The materials used in the production of plastics are natural products such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt and, of course, crude oil.
