I am thankful for my health this Thanksgiving Day. I had a report of an abnormal lung x-ray in late summer. The first thing my thoracic surgeon asked me was had I ever been exposed to asbestos. I indeed had been exposed to crushable asbestos in my early 20's as an Energy Auditor in the neighborhoods of Boston for the local utility.
Unfortunately in the other article, the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes Study Group (ACCORD) trial reported that aggressive blood sugar control not only didn't lower the risk of heart complications from diabetes, but that it also may have raised the risk of death.
The good fats are found in olives, olive oil, oily fish and nuts. In extra virgin olive oil, the balance of omega-6 to omega-3 is almost perfect, getting close to 1:1. In corn oil, there are 40 times more omega-6s than omega-3. Researchers have estimated that same ratio of 40:1 exists in some American diets.
The concept of dieting usually has a negative vibe attached to it. No one wants to be on a diet! This usually mean that you have to deprive yourself of the food that you love to eat or that you will be hungry all of the time. Because diets can be so unpleasant we want them to be over with quickly. So we choose a crazy type of meal plan that promises to help us lose a maximum amount of weight is a very short amount of time. This is not healthy and our bodies don't like it!
Omega 3 DHA is an exceptional diluter. It dilutes the blood thus prevent any clogging in the arteries. This reduces the chance of and stroke. It also lowers the cholesterol level, blood pressure and sugar level in the blood.
So how we deal with stress is important. Many people use physical exercise to alleviate stress. Thirty minutes or more a day of good, heart-beating aerobic activity for five or more days a week will strengthen the heart and the circulatory system. Remember to check with your doctor first before starting an exercise program.
About a month ago, just after Thanksgiving, I was talking to my mother on the phone. She told me my father was out taking their elderly friend who was in her 80's to the "pediatrician" to get her toenails cut. My mother had stayed at home because she was cooking the "cactus" of the turkey and making turkey soup. She also told me she had recently been to the heart doctor who checked her "defimbriator" which was working fine, but she was feeling run down so he prescribed some medication for her. She told me the pills were huge and so difficult to swallow, especially with the piece of meat in her mouth. When I asked her why in the world she would eat a piece of meat while she was trying to swallow the huge pill, she told me because the medication instructions said to take with food.
This is the first season Scrubs will air on ABC. Through seven seasons on NBC, fans watched as medical interns John Dorian (J.D.), Christopher Turk (Turk), and Elliot Reid became fully-fledged attending physicians at the not-so-glamorous Sacred heart hospital. Its unique sense of humor, largely driven by each character's flaws (and J.D.'s random daydreams), captured a segment of dedicated fans. That segment, however, was not large enough for NBC, and Scrubs dodged cancellation threats year after year.
So where is the happy, long-term medium? Uruguay. 8.7% yields are maybe a bit lower than what you'd expect in Latin America (still higher than USA). The economy is steady, the country is relatively safe, http://www.consiglisulpeso.it/entry.php?39782-How-To-Choose-Perfect-Bridal-Hair-Accessories
beach front property hasn't dropped as much as beach front property in the rest of the world, and Rental Income Tax is very low, only 10%. Capital Gains are also very low; only 12% having started in 2007.
I chose to write about my experience because I believe Energy Audits are very valuable to the home owner or even apartment dweller, the environment and the employee who can earn a nice living as an Energy Auditor. I wrote about my health issue because I want the Energy Efficiency industry to add Energy Auditors to their covered workers in Asbestos Torts. At the very least, I want other former Energy Auditors who are now in their late 40's or 50's to get a lung x-ray for Mesothelioma. I have chosen not to sue.
As pumps go, your heart is as complex as you can get. So remember to take care of it because unlike other organs in your body such as your kidneys or your eyes, you only have one.
