Why breast cancer is usually found near the armpit?

When I read this email forwarded to me by my office mate, it really struck my attention and I can't help keeping it to my mailbox alone without sharing the information to others. This awareness may save lives.

The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirant.
*What ???*
Most of the products out there are an anti-perspirant /deodorant combination, so go home and check Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not!
Here's why :- The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge toxins ; behind the knees, behind the ears, groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration.
Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits. These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them out. Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located. Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to develop breast cancer prompted by anti- perspirant usage because most of the anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not directly applied to the skin. Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase the risk further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area. Breast cancer is becoming frighteningly common.

Baon Tips

It's back to school again and children are now excited to go to school to see their friends and classmates. They are excited because they have new pair of dresses, shoes, bags and things for school. Above all they are happy to go to school because they will have delicious baons prepared by their parents. Below are simple tips in preparing baons for the kids.

* Always include fresh juice in your child's baon pack. Juices are healthier than sodas and, according to recent studies, will not contribute to childhood obesity. Or if there is no available fresh juices just plain water especially for children suffering from tonsillitis.
• Try to incorporate greens and vegetables in your child's snacks and lunch. Children don’t like veggies but they can eat these greens without fussing by using veggies in sandwich fillings and spreads.
• Don’t give candy. Candy and chocolate bars provide "hollow" nutrition as they are only full of sugar without the nutrients children need. Try to give your kids fruits and fruit salads instead.
• Don’t give your kids huge servings for their baon. They won't finish it and will just to go to waste. Another idea is to slice sandwiches into halves and wrap them separately.
• Provide variety. They will surely get bored with same kind of baon. Try new recipes and sandwiches that will appeal to their taste.

* Don’t include junk foods in their baon. They can’t get any nutrients from it.

Always remember correct preparations of food means good health for your child.

Back to School Tips

It's just a couple of days remaining before the school year begins. I'm sure all of the parents are busy preparing, buying things for their students. And some of our parents are thinking of ways to make their budget enough for the school requirements. Here are some tips I can suggest in order to save a little from the budget.

  1. Recycle your child’s old wardrobe by finding new items that still fit or using some hand-me downs from an older child.
  2. Check flea markets and second stores for cheaper prices of school supplies.
  3. Encourage your child to recycle left over notebooks which can still be used by putting them together the unused ones and bind it.
  4. Make a list of school supplies before going to the store for fast and easy buying.
  5. Make a survey and comparison of prices so that in one way or another you can save money and time.

Breakfast Gives Better Grades

I already posted about the importance of eating breakfast and now I am going add some other fact why we need to eat breakfast especially for students and children. It ranks with making sure children finished their homework. Kids, students who regularly eat their breakfast have shown to get higher grades and are less likely to be depressed, anxious, fidgety or irritable at school. To make sure children have time for breakfast, families or mothers should organize school papers and clothing the night before or wake up a bit earlier so that there is enough time for eating. Considering the benefits on children's learning potential and lifelong eating habits, it's worth the effort. So let us encourage our children to regularly eat breakfast. It pays to do so.

Tips for Managing Stress

Are you feeling stress about work, problems, relationships or anything? How you handle it? Are you seeking advice from other people or just leave it to yourself? Below are the tips on how to manage stress and how to deal with them.

- TALK TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS: It’s important to remember that you’re not alone. There are people who care and are available to listen when you need to talk. They may even be able to offer some help. If they do offer their help “ just say YES”

- REDUCE CHEMICAL STRESS: Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and sugar can all raise energy on a short term level but in the long run they will just make things worse. Limit their use especially at bedtime so you don’t interfere with normal sleep.

- PUT THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE: Ask yourself if an issue is really worth the emotional and physical energy. It is costing you and does it really matter in the long run? Prioritize the problems you need to deal with and tackle the most important ones first. Give yourself permission to let go of things that you cannot get done.

- USE EXERCISE TO REDUCE STRESS AND IMPROVE HEALTH: Physical exercise is one of the most effective stress-busters. It relaxes tense muscles and improves sleep. Remember though, keep it fun – do things that you enjoy but don’t forget to check with your doctor before you start a new exercise program.

- REMOVE STRESS FROM YOUR ENVIRONMENT: Poor air quality, bad lighting and noise can really increase stress. To improve air quality, ban smoking from the areas you control, open windows for fresh air, and use plants to provide moisture. Avoid fluorescent lighting and use a full spectrum lights whenever possible. If noise is an issue, find a quiet space to work or read. If that’s not possible consider headphones with relaxing background music or earplugs.

- MANAGE YOUR TIME TO MANAGE YOUR STRESS: Use your time in the most effective and productive way possible. Prepare lunches and meals in advance to cut need on or before and after work stress. Plan projects so you have the things you need before you start. Planning ahead gives you more control of your life and reduces stress.

- IMPROVE YOUR ATTITUDE: If you have a negative attitude you may create problems out of opportunities and cause stress by alienating or irritating other people. Minor problems can seem huge and overwhelming. Look for the “silver lining” when faces with tough situations or mistakes. Remember you have control over your attitude towards life and how you let events affect you.

A Sure Way to a Happy Day!

Happiness is something
we create in our mind,
It's not something
you search for.

It's just waking up
and beginning the day.
By counting our blessings
and kneeling to pray.

It's gives up thoughts
that breed discontent.
And accepting what comes
as a "gift heaven sent".

It's giving up wishing
for things we have not,
And making the best of
whatever we've got.

It's knowing that life
is determined for us,
And pursuing our tasks
without fret, fume, or fuss.

For it's by completing
what God gives us to do,
That we find real
contentment and happiness too.

Brazo de Mercedes Cake

For the filling:
5 cups milk
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
8 egg yolks
1/4 cup toasted and finely ground cashew nuts

For the meringue:
10 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the filling:
· In a saucepan, simmer milk over low heat until reduced to 2 cups.
· Add sugar, butter and vanilla extract, stirring all the while. Remove from heat.
· Beat egg yolks in mixing bowl.
· To egg yolks, gradually add milk mixture by spoonfuls, beating all the while. Stir well to avoid curdling.
· Add cashew nuts and continue cooking entire mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture has consistency of a paste. Set aside.

For the meringue:
· Preheat oven to 400 F.
· Beat egg whites until stiff.

· Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper greased with butter and spread meringue on top.
· Bake until brown.
· Spread filling evenly on top of meringue and roll into a log. Brush with butter and brown again in oven.

Have you wondered why is this being called as braso de mercedes? According to my teacher in baking this being named that way because in making this cake you really have to exert effort in whipping the egg white to form a foam for the icing so you have to whip as fast as you can, making your arms(brazo) tired or forming a muscle if you do it often. But after making it the fruit of your labor will be filled with sweetness because of the delicious taste of the cake. Try it now.

A Song for Mama

I want to dedicate this song to my mother who is always there for me, through ups and downs of my life. And I thank her very much for making me what I am now.

A Song for Mama
Sung by Charice Pempengco

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside
You're the driving force
In my life, yeah
There isn't anything
Or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side
You were there for me
To love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there
To comfort me
And no one else can be
What you have been to me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl
In my life for all times

Mama you know I love you
(Oh you know I love you)
You're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know
Lovin' you
Is like food to my soul

(Yes it is, yes it is,ohhhhh
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
You're always there for me
Have always been around for me
Even when I was bad
You showed me
Right from my wrong
(Yes you did)
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times
Looking back
When I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And saaaayyyy
I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be
The girl in my life
(Oooo, oohh)


Never gonna go
A day without you
Fill's me up
Just thinking about you
I'll never go a day
Without my mama

To Bra or Not to Bra?

Did you know that women who wore their bras 24 hours a day had a 113-fold increase in breast cancer than women who wore their bras less than 12 hours a day. Women who wore their bra 24 hours a day have a 125-fold increase in breast cancer than women who wore no bra at all. It's a challenge to all women isn't it?

Attention Ladies! Facts About Chicken Wings

Avoid eating chicken wings frequently - ladies, especially; a true story...!

A friend of mine recently had a growth in her womb and she underwent an operation to remove the.

The cyst removed was filled with a dark colored blood. She thought that she would be recovered after the surgery but! she was terribly wrong.after the surgery but! she was terribly wrong.

Visit Us @ www.MumbaiHangOut.Org

A relapse occurred just a few months later. Distressed, she rushed down to her gynecologist for a consultation. During her consultation, her doctor asked her a question that puzzled her.

He asked if she was a frequent consumer of chicken wings and she replied yes wondering as to how, he knew of her eating habits.
You see, the truth is in this modern day and age; chickens are injected with steroids to accelerate their growth so that the needs of this society can be met.
This need is none other than the need for food

Chickens that are injected with steroids are usually given the shot at the neck or the wings.
Therefore, it is in these places that the highest concentration of steroids exists.

These steroids have terrifying effects on the body as it accelerates growth..

It has an even more dangerous effect in the presence of female hormones, this leads to women being more prone to the growth of a cyst in the womb.. Therefore, I advise the people out there to watch their diets and to lower their frequency of consuming chicken wings!

Swine Influenza Outbreak

The world is greatly affected by the new virus coming from pig named as “Swine influenza” also called as swine flu, hog flu. This refers to influenza caused by those strains of influenza virus that infect pigs. They are common sickness of pigs. Now the virus originated form Mexico which already killed some of the residents there. And it already spread to other countries like Canada, South America, Europe, Kenya, Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and other parts of Eastern Asia. So far Philippines have not reported any fatalities.
Rarely, these strains of swine flu can pass from human to human. In humans, the symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza. These are the symptoms for this illness: namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing weakness and general discomfort. So if you experience one or more of these go immediately to the doctor so that you will be further examine for possible contamination.
This becomes already an outbreak because it is an air born virus. That’s why people are advised to be very careful, if possible avoid crowded places, wear mask, always wash hands before and after eating, wash hands with alcohol, avoid kissing and handshaking as of this moment.

History of Labor Day

The holiday originated in 1882 as the Central Labor Union of NewYork City sought to create "a day off for the working citizens." Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday—a street parade to exhibit to the public "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations," followed by a festival for the workers and their families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations.

Today, Labor Day is often regarded as a day of rest and parades. Speeches or political demonstrations are more low-key than May1 Labor Day Celebration in most countries; although events held by labor organizations often feature political themes and appearances by candidates for office, especially in election years. But others celebrated it by picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events.

This year 2009 in the Philippines, Labor Day celebration was celebrated with different events held to various places, one of which is the “ Jobapalooza 09” held in all SM Mall outlets and other Malls in the country in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment. This is to give chance to unemployed people find different jobs both international and local in just one venue. Especially those workers coming from closed companies because of the on going economic crises that our world is facing right now. I hope it is a great help to all of them. While others are busy applying for jobs, demonstrations on streets are still held to all places because this is the only time that workers can voice out their demands for increase in salary and benefits.
