For those of you interested in the Tower Garden, here is the url for my page on it:

Salmon With Noodles Recipe

I made this for dinner tonight. I used a small can of red salmon and heated about a cup of whey with a TBS of corn starch. After the corn starch was stirred into the whey, I brought it to a boil. Meanwhile, I cooked about a third of a pound of organic noodles and added them to the whey mixture along with the red salmon. I also added some bullion powder ( I used beef flavoring but I intended I using chicken flavoring). I didn't measure anything so I tried to make the measurements as close to what I think they were.

We Need Oxygen

We need oxygen. Duh. Of course we need oxygen. But we need to have more pure oxygen. How do we get this pure oxygen and why is it important?
   In your science class, you may have learned that plants take in carbon dioxide, and release oxygen, and human beings take in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants and humans depend on each other to survive.
   I think in our western culture, one of the things we do out of convenience, is to have our windows in our houses shut, and we let the air conditioning unit do all the work. I am not against air conditioning, but I have a feeling it takes away from our being able to get pure oxygen into our lungs. If you have an air conditioning unit, make sure you change the filters often.
   So, we should be able to open our windows and let the fresh air in, right? Yes, and no. Yes, we need the oxygen that is from the green plants outside, but we also have to remember that there is pollution outdoors as well. Some places have more pollution than others. Plus, there could be pollen in the air that would cause allergies to flare up, possibly. But all of this doesn't change the fact that we need oxygen, and green plants provide oxygen. So, if possible, let the fresh air in, and get the stale air out of the house.
   I have heard that good oxygen can also help a person sleep better. I am sure that must be true, but I would have to research it more to be able to say something more conclusively. Fresh air certainly can't hurt though. So, as a friend told me one time, if you are having a hard time sleeping, go outside and face the area where there is greenery and breathe in. Take in the oxygen produced from the plants.
   One other way to get oxygen into the house is to have green plants inside. I had thought about having an aeroponic garden in the house, not only for the vegetation, but also for the oxygen it produces.
   So, the next time the weather is nice, open the windows if you can. Let the fresh air be recycled in the house. Take deep breaths and enjoy it while it is here.

Are Dental X-Rays Causing Brain Tumors in People?

There have been studies going on, and one conclusion to the research that was done on the connection between dental x-rays and brain tumors has shown that there is clear evidence. It is the exposure to ionizing radiation that seems to be the main factor. Although there appears to be risk of brain tumors, the article is largely referring to non-malignant tumors, which have difficulties of their own that come with them.

Juice Plus+ - Way to Better Health

The recipe for better health is as simple as 1-2-3
Juice Plus + - convenient, easy to take whole food based nutrition, rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.

We need to eat 7 - 13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Due to our busy lifestyles, most of us simply can't, don't, or won't.

Here is the neat thing about ordering Juice Plus+. You can order it online and it gets shipped to your house! You don't have to pick it up somewhere, nor do you have to wait for me to have it in stock! You can live anywhere in the country and order this product and it will arrive at your door promptly.

Have questions? Follow this link, or place your questions in the comment box below.
Juice Plus Information and Ordering Page

This information is from the booklet put out by Juice Plus, 'The Recipe For Better Health is as simple as 1-2-3".

Also, for your information, Juice Plus+ comes in capsule or chewable form. I am finding more people are choosing the chewable form, and once I started using the chewables, I know why!

If you have children, you can ask about the Children's Health Study, which allows a child to take Juice Plus+ at no cost to you (except shipping, which is very minimal), with a participating adult. So, for example, if you are a parent, and have a child that is four years old or above, if you are taking Juice Plus+, your child is eligible to take Juice Plus+ at no cost to you. All Juice Plus+ asks for is to fill out a survey periodically and send it in. If both parents are taking Juice Plus+, then two children are eligible for the Children's Health Study.
   Again, if you have questions about this, please visit the above link or send in comments below. The web page has information on this. You can find it on this link: Juice Plus Children's Health Study

The Garden Tower

Tower Garden
Here is an exciting idea. If you lack space to grow your own garden vegetables and fruits, here is an answer for you! Take a look at the 'Tower Garden'. It is a vertical garden that can be used to produce a lot of food in a small amount of space.
