  1. To retiree in the Philippines: The conclusion must be : You have to have a very good health or a lot of money. Because if you are more than 60 it will be more and more difficult and more and more expensive to get a proper health insurance. Do you agree? Merry Christmas everybody
  2. Mayo Clinic re: drinking water As a heart patient since 1988 and a survivor of triple bypass surgery, my cardiologist has recommended most of things listed below to help prevent a heart attack, especially about drinking water. I strongly encourage all to at least read the missive below. George Pearce ********************************************** Good Thing To Know! From The Mayo Clinic. How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night!! Heart Attack and Water - Drink 1 glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack! I never knew all of this! Interesting....... Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor: Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion 1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure 1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, When the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame. 1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system. 2. Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest; for years. (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on. Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets. Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks - There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently. Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by. Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and .... DO NOT LIE DOWN! A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved! I have already shared this information. What about you? Do forward this message. It may save lives! "Life is a one time gift" (Let's forward and hope this will help save some!!!)

  4. NaturalNews) Everybody knows that being obese greatly reduces one's quality of life and makes it much more difficult to maintain a normal, healthy existence. But a new study out of Canada has scientifically quantified the obesity health toll as shaving up to eight years off of a person's life, with several decades of relative misery leading up to this early death. Researchers from McGill University in Montreal noted that the major risk factors associated with obesity are common illnesses like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Most people are aware of these conditions, and even their relationship with obesity, but they often fail to recognize how quality of life is degraded once they are present. Published in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, a study comparing young men and women of healthy weights to young obese individuals found that those who were overweight lost about 8.4 years off of their lives if they were men and 6.1 years off of their lives if they were women. Similarly, the young obese men suffered 18.8 more years of poor health leading up to their early deaths compared to men of healthy weight, while young obese women suffered 19.1 years of poor health. Even when obesity emerged just in old age, both men and women were found to lose years off of their lives: for men, an average of 3.7 years and for women about 5.3 years. "Our computer modelling study shows that obesity is associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, and diabetes that will, on average, dramatically reduce an individual's life expectancy," stated Professor Steven Grover, one of the study's authors, as quoted by the BBC. "The pattern is clear. The more an individual weighs and the younger their age, the greater the effect on their health, as they have many years ahead of them during which the increased health risks associated with obesity can negatively impact their lives." A Body Mass Index (BMI) score of 35 or more was considered to be "very obese," and individuals in this category had anywhere between one and eight years shaved off their lives, based on the assessment model. Even overweight people with BMI scores between 25 and 30, which is not technically considered "obese," lost up to three years from their lives. "This research study yet again supports the clear message that by becoming obese you not only take years off your life, but also life off your years in terms of experiencing more years in poor health rather than enjoying a happy, active and productive life," added Barbara Dinsdale, a lifestyle manager at the British charity Heart Research UK. "Whatever size you are, small, manageable but sustainable changes are the way forward for a happier, healthier and longer life, and reduced risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes." Maintaining an appropriate diet is key to avoiding obesity, and this includes cutting out refined sugars, "diet" soft drinks, cheap carbohydrates from processed flours and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Contrary to popular belief, fats are an important part of a healthy diet, including saturated fats, as are whole, fresh fruits and vegetables grown in nutrient-dense soils. If you want to stay slim, also avoid cheap oils like soybean and canola, which are often used in processed foods and condiments. And remember to get at least 30 minutes of exercise daily to stay fit and healthy.

  5. Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, a known smoker, has signed a law requiring tobacco companies to put graphic health warnings on cigarette packs in a country where tens of thousands of people die every year from tobacco-linked diseases, an official said Sunday. Aquino signed the law Friday "to effectively instill health consciousness through graphic health warnings on tobacco products," presidential spokesman Herminio Coloma Jr. said. With the law, the Philippines joins more than 40 other nations and territories that have adopted similar regulations and brought the battle against smoking to the cover of cigarette packs.
