Eat more fiber. Fiber keeps the digestive system running smoothly by decreasing the transit time of food in the intestines. Fiber from whole grains, fruits and vegetables also lowers harmful LDL cholesterol and improves sugar balance for people with diabetes. For digestion and overall health, fiber rich foods should make up a big part of your daily diet.
Eat more alkaline foods. The typical American diet relies on too many acid-forming foods. They're the primary cause of GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease).
Acid-forming foods to limit: refined sugars, white flour, alcohol, sodas, coffee, red meat, fried, fatty foods.
Alkaline-forming foods to add: mineral water, vegetables (especially greens), seaweed, herbal teas, miso, brown rice, honey, fruits.
Practice good food combining. Sometimes, it's not what you eat that's making you sick, it's the way you eat it. Different foods need different enzymes to digest properly.
Follow 3 key principles:
Eat fruits alone and on an empty stomach in the morning.
Don't eat fruits and vegetables at the same meal.
Avoid high protein foods with whole grains.
Take enzymes. Many of the foods we eat are so processed they lack vital enzymes. Enzymes are the spark plugs for every body function. They can be easily brought into your body through fresh foods. Have a green salad every day.

Translational Biomedicine is the transfer of knowledge from basic science, findings in the laboratory focusing on fundamental science to testable hypotheses for evaluation in clinical trials.
It can be described as using knowledge from basic research to improve clinical applications in order to prevent diseases in the community.
Translational Biomedicine is the branch of medical science that applies biological and physiological principles to clinical practice and that studies the ability of organisms to withstand environmental stress.
Translational Biomedicine Studies using primer design are intended to find the necessary information to identify genetic contributors to human health, developing new biomedicine approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The increased focus on health issues, and the demand for better medical biomedical engineers and the heightened interest in biotech research and biomedicine, more degrees are granted in these fields!

So the neuro-chip can be called as the culmination of a process trying to blurr the line between living organisms and machines . Researchers have now developed "neuro-chips" in which living brain cells and silicon circuits are coupled together.
It is understood to be a breakthrough in treating neurological disorders, or a basis for developing organic computers using living neurons or even a basis for Brain implant in future.
To create the neuro-chip, researchers squeezed more than 16,000 electronic transistors and hundreds of capacitors onto a silicon chip just 1 millimeter square in size.They used special proteins found in the brain to glue brain cells, called neurons, onto the chip. However, the proteins acted as more than just a simple adhesive."They also provided the link between ionic channels of the neurons and semiconductor material in a way that neural electrical signals could be passed to the silicon chip.
Snail neurons form a network on a silicon chip.The proteins allowed the neuro-chip's electronic components and its living cells to communicate with each other. Electrical signals from neurons were recorded using the chip's transistors, while the chip's capacitors were used to stimulate the neurons.
It could still be decades before the technology is advanced enough to treat neurological disorders or create living computers, the researchers say, but in the nearer term, the chips could provide an advanced method of screening drugs for the pharmaceutical industry.

Blood is carried from the heart to all parts of our body in vessels which are known as arteries. Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood on the walls of the arteries. With each of our heart beat, the heart pumps the blood into the arteries and the blood pressure is at its highest. This is called systolic pressure. When the heart is at rest, between beats, the blood pressure falls. This is what diastolic pressure is.
Blood pressure is always denoted by these systolic and diastolic pressures such as 120/80 mmHg. The top number is the systolic and the bottom one is diastolic. Both are important. These levels should be lower than 120/80. When the level stays high, 140/90 or higher, you have high blood pressure.
Blood pressure is lowest when you sleep and rises when you get up. It may rise when you are excited, nervous or extra-active.
With high blood pressure, the heart works harder, your chances of a stroke, heart attack, and kidney problems are greater
High blood pressure is also called the “silent killer” because it usually has no symptoms. If not controlled over time, high blood pressure can affect not only your heart and blood vessels but also other organs.
• Normal blood pressure is <120 mm of Hg systolic and < 80 mm of Hg diastolic
• Pre-hypertension is <120-139 mm of Hg systolic and < 80-89 mm of Hg diastolic
• Stage 1 hypertension is 140-159 mm of Hg systolic and 90-99 mm of Hg diastolic
• Stage 2 hypertension is =/>160 mm of Hg systolic and =/>100 mm of Hg diastolic
The World Health Organization says that "ideally blood pressure should not be greater than 115/75 mm of Hg.
You have a higher chance of having high blood pressure if
• If someone in your family has or has had high blood pressure
• If you are overweight
• If you have fat around your stomach more than around the hips
• High blood pressure is often a prediabetic state.
Simple steps to keep your blood pressure under control
Brisk Walking— Walking at a brisk pace can help lower your pressure. A good workout will ensure the heart uses oxygen more efficiently. Getting a rigorous cardio workout 4 to 5 times a week can make a huge difference. Start by incorporating about 15 minutes of exercise in your daily routine and slowly increase the time and difficulty level.
Deep Breathing — Learning some slow breathing and meditation techniques can do wonders. It will help reduce stress drastically and keep your blood pressure in check. Try taking out 10 minutes every morning and at night. Inhale and exhale deeply. If you can, join a yoga class for some time so that you can learn the proper method.
Go for potassium-rich foods — you have probably heard of the negative effects of sodium on the body and potassium is an essential mineral to counter the effects of sodium on blood pressure. Fruits and vegetables are rich in potassium. Try adding sweet potatoes, tomatoes, orange juice, potatoes, bananas, peas, and prunes and raisins to your regular diet.
Go slow on the salt — Whether you have a family history of high blood pressure or not, reducing your intake of salt can make a huge difference to your health. Before adding that extra pinch of salt to your food, think if you really need it. Try substituting salt with lime, garlic, pepper or other herbs and spices. Go slow on processed and packaged foods.
Tea benefits — Herbal teas are the way to go. In a study conducted, those who sipped on hibiscus tea daily lowered their blood pressure. Many herbal teas contain hibiscus or you can always opt for green tea.
Reduce work and relax — Reducing the number of hours you spend in office can help lower hypertension. Working overtime makes it hard to exercise and eat healthy. Ensure that you get out of office at a decent hour. Learning to relax by listening to soothing music can help.

My Dear Sweetheart,
Yesterday, I was passing by your rectangular house in trigonometric lane.
There I saw you with our cute circular face, conical nose and spherical eyes, standing in your triangular garden. Before seeing you my heart was a null set, but when a vector of magnitude (likeness) from your eyes at a deviation of theta radians made a tangent to my heart, it differentiated. My love for you is a quadratic equation with real roots, which only you can solve by making good binary relation with me.
The cosine of my love for you extends to infinity.
I promise that I should not resolve you into partial functions but if I do so, you can integrate me by applying the limits from zero to infinity. You are as essential to me as an element to a set.
The geometry of my life revolves around your acute personality. My love, if you do not meet me at parabola restaurant on date 10 at sunset, when the sun is making an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would be like a solved polynomial of degree 10.
With love from your higher order derivatives of maxima and minima of an unknown function.

There are several ways to define clean energy. It refers to energy processes that pollute less and don’t use resources that can’t be easily renewed. Clean energy may also be called renewable energy or green energy.
The basic forms of clean energy are those that come from water, wind, or sun. In some cases, some manufacturing and use of coal is considered clean and called clean coal.
It’s hoped that clean energy provides for a total substitution for oil, helps to reduce global warming and greenhouse gas emissions and helps to create a safer earth for all inhabitants.
In reality, clean energy too has problems. For instance, wind farms that can provide power can have significant effect on local bird populations, and birds of some types can face grave depletion of numbers when they live near wind farms.
Many environmentalists say that no power source is totally without risk, clean energy could have a wide reaching effect on healing the planet and perhaps stemming the tide of global warming. An additional reason why clean energy can be so desirable is because it tends to come from sources that are free. While harnessing this energy costs money, wind and sun aren’t owned by anybody in particular.
This is not the case with oil. Most of the oil deposits in the world are located in the Middle East. The dependence on oil on these countries often creates diplomatic problems too.
Much remains to be done to see that how to best harness clean energy sources and how to use them to best advantage. One issue is how to transport collected energy from one place to another, since many places that produce this energy are located in remote locations. Changing the power grid to accommodate different sources of energy can help this problem, but this has yet to occur on a wide scale.

[A Letter From Baby to Mother after Abortion !!! ]
I am in Heaven now... I so wanted to be your little girl. I don't quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existance. I was in a dark, yet comfortable place. I saw I had fingers and toes. I was pretty far along in my developing, yet not near ready to leave my surroundings. I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping. Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me.
Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry. I heard Daddy yelling back. I was sad, and hoped you would be better soon. I wondered why you cried so much. One day you cried almost all of the day. I hurt for you. I couldn't imagine why you were so unhappy.
That same day, the most horrible thing happened. A very mean monster came into that warm, comfortable place I was in. I was so scared, I began screaming, but you never once tried to help me. Maybe you never heard me. The monster got closer and closer as I was screaming and screaming, "Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me." Complete terror is all I felt. I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn't anymore. Then the monster started ripping my arms off. It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain. It didn't stop.
Oh, how I begged it to stop. I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off.
Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying. I knew I would never see your face or hear you say how much you love me. I wanted to make all your tears go away. I had so many plans to make you happy. Now I couldn't; all my dreams were shattered. Though I was in utter pain and horror, I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all. I wanted more than anything to be your daughter. No use now, for I was dying a painful death. I could only imagine the terrible things that they had done to you. I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone, but I didn't know the words you could understand.
And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them; I was dead. I felt myself rising. I was being carried by a huge angel into a big beautiful place. I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone. The angel took me away to a wonderful place... Then I was happy. I asked the angel what was the thing was that killed me. He answered, "Abortion". I am sorry, for I know how it feels." I don't know what abortion is; I guess that's the name of the monster. I'm writing to say that I love you and to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl. I tried very hard to live. I wanted to live. I had the will, but I couldn't; the monster was too powerful. It sucked my arms and legs off and finally got all of me. It was impossible to live. I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you. I didn't want to die. Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster. Mommy, I love you and I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did. Please be careful.
Your Baby Girl
PRO CHOICE? DO YOU THINK THESE BABIES CHOSE TO DIE???
This Is Dedicated To The Memory Of All The Aborted Babies Throughout The World. Please pass this on to as many people as u can... If u have a heart u will... I post it to here, coz I know u have a heart n will post it to others, so that they will know what happens to their child and all the pain the baby goes through when they abortion their baby
(STOP ABORTION PLEASE)

Human = eat + sleep + work + enjoy
Donkey = eat + sleep
Human = Donkey + Work + enjoy
Human-enjoy = Donkey + Work
In other words,
Human that don't know enjoy = Donkey that work.
Donkey = eat + sleep
Men = Donkey + earn money
Men-earn money = Donkey
In other words
Men who d'nt earn mony = Donkey
Donkey = eat + sleep
Women = Donkey + spend
Women - spend = Donkey
In other words,
Women who don't spend = Donkey
Men who don't earn money = Women who don't spend
So Men earn money not to let women become donkey!
And women spend not to let men become donkey!
So, We have:
Men + Women = Donkey + earn money + Donkey + Spend money
Therefore from postulates 1 and 2, we can conclude
Men + Women = 2 Donkeys that live happily together!

This is a special article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about Heart Attacks . The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is feels nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer . It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
French fries and Burgers are the biggest enemy of heart health.
A coke after that gives more power to this demon.
Avoid them for your Heart's Health
Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack...
A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.
Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line .
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.
A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this & Send to a friend. It could save a life... So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.

One day I decided to quit.... I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality. ...
I wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
"God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"
His answer surprised me...
"Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"
"Yes", I replied.
"When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.
I gave them light. I gave them water.
The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor.
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo".
He said. "In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.
But I would not quit.
In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed.
I would not quit."
He said. "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.
Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant.
But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 Feet tall.
It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle."
He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots. I Would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don't compare yourself to others."
He said. "The bamboo had a different purpose than the Fern, yet, they both make the forest beautiful."
"Your time will come, "God said to me." You will rise high!"
"How high should I rise?" I asked.
"How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return.
"As high as it can?" I questioned.
"Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."
I left the forest and brought back this story.
I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you........
