Basics Of Nutrition

There are many things to learn about when it comes to nutrition. But the basic concept is “What goes in must come out.” Your body is like a machine it takes what it needs from what you feed it and gets rid of the rest by urine and the bowels.

If you notice you have a problem about elimination, you should take it seriously, go see a doctor. Many people have this problem. Don’t be shy or anything, it can be very serous to your health.

The first step, is finding out if there even is a problem. First you should see how many bowel movements you have daily (BM). If you have one per day it’s not a problem, however it is better to have 2 to 3 BM’s a day and more if you eat more often. But if you find you are having one per week or 2 per month, then you have a serious problem.

For some people they might say they don’t find the time. The reason could be they are out all day and would prefer to have their BM at home rather then a public bathroom. But let me tell you, you will keep your colon quite happy if you go several times for the day. If you are looking for a trick it would be to eat a lot of raw fruits and vegetables, steamed beets and using digestive enzymes with your meals. Do whatever you can; it will be beneficial to you.

I have just lightly touched on the subject, but if you have a problem you should consult a doctor and seek help. Because this problem is not good for your health, take care of it today and look forward to tomorrow. May you live a healthy and prosper life.

Banana Skin Gives New Hope for Cancer Research

Bright blue rings found under ultraviolet light on the peels of ripe bananas gives new improvement in studying how organisms cleanse themselves of dying cells, this is announced by US and Austria scientists.

Nicholas Turro of Columbia University in New York, Bernhard Krautler of the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, found that when chlorophyll ages and begins to disintegrate in banana peels, it does not change color in the spectrum of visible light, instead, it glows blue when observed under ultraviolet light.

Chlorophyll is the molecule that allows life on Earth. It is the integral part that makes plant can take a mixture of carbon dioxide, water and sunlight so they can be converted to oxygen, sugars and starches. The chlorophyll break down is a major contribution to the color changes in fall leaves, and also ripening apples and pears. But in ripening and rotting bananas, chlorophyll fades to be unique fades color, causing yellow bananas to glow blue when observed under ultraviolet light.

Because the glowing molecules occur in close proximity to dying tissue, they promise for good sign for further study of the way organisms cleanse themselves of dying cells, or even programmed cell death as in cancer cells. And we hope it also gives good sign for cancer research in human body.
