A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hi Everyone,

Our computer went out last week and we are still recovering. We had backed
up the information but it was done incorrectly so it was helpful only
marginally. We will be putting it all back together on a different system
that will permit the correct backup procedures.

Donna and I have been doing some major landscaping at our home. Donna is
great at designing and seeing the big picture. I do the "weak mind and
strong back work." LOL

Needless to say, we have been worn out more than usual. However, it's
already making the home more pleasant to enjoy. We are confident it will be
worth it.

Our numbers keep growing and we are grateful to all of you that share our
site and ezines with your friends, family and coworkers.


Until next time,

Randal

FAT GRABBERS

Wouldn't it be nice to eat a meal and know that some of the fat that comes
from your favorite foods would not be absorbed by your body? Fat Grabbers is
designed to help do just that. Psyllium and guar gum combine to bulk stool
so that more fats and toxins are eliminated. While lecithin and chickweed
work to dissolve fat into water soluble substances that will not deposit
themselves in your body.

MALE OSTEOPOROSIS: A SILENT THREAT

When talking about men‚s health, one of the most commonly brought up
concerns is prostate cancer. But prostate cancer is not the only threat to
men. Men are also at risk of osteoporosis, and men over the age of 50
actually have a greater risk of developing osteoporosis than they do
prostate cancer.

If you‚re surprised by this you are certainly not alone. Osteoporosis, which
is characterized by compromised bone strength that puts a person at an
increased risk of fracture, is often associated with women, and although
four times as many women get osteoporosis as men, men can develop an extreme
form of the condition, which can lead to a height loss of several inches.
More than 2 million men in the United States have osteoporosis, and it‚s
estimated that another 3 million are at high risk.

FLAX SEED OIL

Flax Seed Oil contains high concentrations of Omega-6 fatty acids and the
Omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, which support the glandular and
structural systems. These essential fatty acids (EFAs, called essential
fatty acids because the body cannot manufacture them but must get them from
the diet) perform many vital functions in the body.

LINOLENIC ACID FOUND TO LESSEN ARTERY PLAQUE

A team of researchers found a correlation between high consumption of
linolenic acid and lower prevalence odds of plaque in the carotid artery.

Studying 1,575 white male participants in the National Heart, Lung, and
Blood Institute Family Heart Study, who were free from coronary artery
disease, stroke, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus, the team used
ultrasound both to detect the presence of plaques in the carotid artery and
to measure the intimamedia thickness of the artery. They found that the
higher the consumption of linolenic acid, the lower the odds of carotid
plaque.

The researchers said they found that linoleic acid, fish long-chain fatty
acids, and fish consumption were not "significantly related" to carotid
artery disease

[Djousse L, Folsom A, Province M, Hunt SC and Ellison R. "Dietary linolenic
acid and carotid atherosclerosis: the National Heart, Lung, and Blood
Institute Family Heart Study," American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol.
77, No. 4, 819-825.]

NUTRITION IS A CHOICE
*******************

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARGARINE AND BUTTER

Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in
saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the
same amount of butter according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other
foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few only
because they are added!

Butter tastes much better then margarine and it can enhance the flavors of
other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for
less then 100 years.

Now for Margarine...

Very high in Trans Fatty Acids.
Triple risk of Coronary Heart Disease.
Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol)
Lowers HDL (the good cholesterol)
Increases the risk of cancers by up to five fold.
Lowers quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases insulin response.

Laughter Is Good Medicine

The old man had died. A wonderful funeral was in progress and the country
preacher talked at length of the good traits of the deceased, what an honest
man he was, and what a loving husband and kind father he was.

Finally, the widow leaned over and whispered to one of her children,

"Go up there and take a look in the coffin and see if that's your pa in
there."
