The things we don’t know…

Car A/C (Air Conditioning) MUST READ!

Please do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car. Open the windows after you enter your car and turn ON the air-conditioning after a couple of minutes. 

 Here’s why:

 

According to a research, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen – take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car).
In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer, may also cause miscarriage.

 

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft.

 

 

A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene.If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.
People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession excessive amounts of the toxin.
Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver. What’s worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

 

So friends, please open the windows and door of your car – give time for interior to air out – dispel the deadly stuff – before you enter.

One In Five Rooms Is ‘Highly Contaminated’ With Hidden Mold

ScienceDaily (May 1, 2008) – Surely your bathroom is fungus-free once you’ve wiped the mould off the tiles? Not according to a study by French scientists in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Journal of Environmental Monitoring. They report that almost one in five rooms studied with no visible mould was in fact “highly contaminated” by fungus which could aggravate conditions such as asthma.

The study also found that bedrooms and living rooms were no less contaminated than bathrooms and kitchens – “hidden” fungus was not only airborne but found in carpets and soft furnishings, and behind wallpaper, and was often colorless and odorless.

When assessing a building’s level of contamination, many authorities rely on trained investigators to see or smell the fungus – Sandrine Roussel, lead author of the article, and collaborators say this is not enough. By completing questionnaires and sampling the air in hundreds of homes in France, they found that what you see is not always what you get.

“Nowadays, no one would agree to live in housing which presents any risks towards lead or carbon monoxide. Tomorrow, moulds and other chemical substances will probably follow,” says Roussel.

Mould in the home is not just unsightly and indicative of poor hygiene standards; it is known to aggravate a range of medical conditions, such as asthma, rhinitis and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. This study set out to establish if more could be done to identify fungus as exacerbating these complaints.

Surprisingly, the study found that factors commonly held to increase mould contamination had relatively little effect. The age of the building, presence of pets and even outdoor and indoor temperature had little bearing on fungus concentration.

As for airborne fungi, it made little or no difference if the room was regularly used to dry clothes, or contained indoor plants – factors that public health inspectors had previously highlighted as key issues.

The researchers found that significant factors in levels of contamination were structure, such as lack of ventilation or a ground floor apartment, or accidental damage, such as water damage.

Eliminating ALL sources of mold and mildew in your home, vehicle and workplace is nearly impossible. With warmer and more humid weather upon us, many of you will suffer flare-ups in problems caused by (or made worse by) mold.

The 1st step is to realize that hidden mold, mildew and fungus can be hurting you, even when you don’t see or smell mold.

 

In fact, once a room has developed a ‘musty smell’ the mold count has already reached extremely high levels. Sources of ongoing mold growth are numerous….. dirty air conditioning filters, water damage, improper ventilation, and wallpaper are a few the common culprits. The places mold grows are everywhere!

Berries Prevent Wrinkles

(Ivanhoe Newswire) – The newest potion in a woman’s skin care regimen may be found in berries. A new study shows the antioxidant ellagic acid – prevalent in raspberries, strawberries, cranberries and pomegranates – protects the skin from UV damage.

Twelve mice were exposed to increasing ultraviolet radiation three times weekly for eight weeks. Half were given daily 10 microM topical applications of ellagic acid on their skin surface.

The study, conducted at Hallym University in the Republic of Korea, shows mice exposed to the radiation without the antioxidant developed wrinkles and thickening of the skin. The mice that received ellagic acid showed reduced wrinkle formation and inflammatory response due to protection from the degradation of collagen.
Ellagic acid is found in berries as well as other fruits, vegetables and nuts. It protects against UV damage by blocking the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes that break down the collagen of damaged skin cells.

Broccoli Sprouts Ward Off Stomach Cancer
(Ivanhoe Newswire) – People who carry the H. Pylori bacteria in their gut are at higher risk for stomach cancer.

Now a new study suggests an easy way to reduce that risk: eat broccoli sprouts. In a study conducted among 48 men and women from Japan, John Hopkins investigators found those who ate 70 grams of broccoli sprouts per day or a similar amount of alfalfa sprouts. The subjects were retested for H. pylori at four and eight weeks. By the final follow up, the broccoli sprout had done the trick. People who ate the alfalfa sprouts showed no change in the degree of infection.

“Broccoli has recently entered the public awareness as a preventive dietary agent. This study supports the emerging evidence that broccoli sprouts may be able to prevent cancer in humans, not just in lab animals,” study author Jed Fahey, Sc.D., was quoted as saying.

Stomach cancer is currently the second most common cancer worldwide, and the second deadliest form of the disease, so finding ways to prevent the condition could have a major impact on public health.
