A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

Hope all of you are doing well despite this heat wave we seem to be all experiencing. We have been away for 10 days and came back to find many of our plants looking very thirsty. I am in the process of deep watering them with the hope they will pop back. Some of the plants actually lost a lot of leaves and turned brown due to the heat.

Just like plants, we have to have water and proper nutrition to function properly. One undisputed mineral that everyone agrees we need is calcium. Take a look at the Nature’s Sea Calcium featured below. With the increased absorption, this calcium should be a great help in keeping our structural systems more sound.

Thank you for sharing our sites and ezines with your family and friends.

Until next time, be in good health!

Healthy Lifestyles May Help Prevent Alzheimer's - By Amanda Gardner, HealthDay Reporter

A stream of studies suggests that simple lifestyle activities such as being socially engaged and watching how you eat, drink and exercise may have an effect on risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Several of these studies are being highlighted Sunday at the first Alzheimer's Association International Conference on the Prevention of Dementia in Washington, D.C.

"It's exciting that we can even hold a prevention conference," said William Thies, vice president of medical and scientific affairs at the Alzheimer's Association during a Tuesday teleconference. "Had we proposed it 10 years ago, the likely response would have been laughter followed by skepticism."

But he added that "there's been an explosion of information over the last 10 years or so that really highlights the possibilities we have to lower the amount of Alzheimer's disease in our society, with some interventions that are relatively well known and have clear public health benefit."

One study found that an active social life was associated with a decreased risk of dementia.

Previous reports had shown that late-life social engagement seemed to be protective against dementia. Many of those studies were based on data collected closer to the onset of dementia, however. These authors wanted to look at earlier time frames.

Talking to Your Child About Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco -

Advertisers spend billions of dollars each year trying to get children to smoke. Talking to your kids honestly, clearly, and convincingly about the dangers of tobacco and nicotine addiction is an essential part of good parenting. To be blunt: your words can save their lives. Read this article to find out how.

Why Do I Need to Talk to My Child About Tobacco?
According to the U.S. Surgeon General, smoking is the chief cause of preventable deaths in the United States. At the same time, however, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that each day more than 3,000 kids become regular smokers and that about one third of these children will eventually die a "smoker's death" from cancer, heart disease, or lung disease.

And the danger isn't just smoking . . .

Chunky Bean Spread Sandwiches - Serves 6

Here is a cool and casual sandwich that really satisfies. Make sure to use a fresh, crusty bread. Any leftover bean spread will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days. Meal Plan: A simple slaw goes well with these sandwiches. Make it before starting the bean spread. Use packaged coleslaw cabbage (preferably one that includes some carrot and red cabbage) and dress in a natural low-fat vinaigrette or ranch dressing. Serve stone-ground tortilla chips and a spicy salsa with the meal.

1/2 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives
1 to 2 scallions, green parts only, coarsely chopped
2 16-oz. cans pinto or pink beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tbs. soy mayonnaise or reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
Salt to taste
Whole-grain or rye bread slices
Thinly sliced plum tomatoes
Alfalfa or other sprouts or shredded lettuce

1. In food processor, combine bell pepper, olives and scallions. Pulse on and off several times, until mixture is coarsely chopped into approximately 1/4-inch pieces.

2. Add beans, mayonnaise, lemon juice, cumin and salt, and pulse on and off until mixture is evenly chopped but still chunky. Transfer to medium bowl.

3. Let everyone assemble his or her own sandwich as follows: Spread a generous amount of bean mixture on one slice of bread, top with tomato slices, some sprouts and another slice of bread.
