Healthful Facts About Oregano


How do you know about Oregano? Oregano provides good medicinal effect on our body, adds distinct flavor to food, and gives a therapeutic flavor substitute to black pepper. Oregano has 42 times more anti-oxidant activity than apples, 30 times more than potatoes, 12 times more than oranges and 4 times more than blueberries. That was according to Shiow Y. Wang, Ph.D a biochemist and researcher from USDA’s Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, Maryland USA. Oregano, dried or ground contains vitamins, A, C, K, iron manganese, dietary fiber, calcium, magnesium and omega 3 fatty acids. 
Because of oregano's medicinal and culinary properties, it is a good idea to grow your own oregano plant. Oregano dwells on sandy, well-drained or dry soil. It can also be planted in containers filled with soil. Use the plant's seeds, stem, cuttings, or mature roots in planting. For a bushy growth, trim oregano shoots within one inch of the center. So easy isn't it? Try planting at home now.

Thank You So Much!


Blogging has been my favorite hobby. Whenever I’m free from work, I immediately visit my site and post articles. It’s not easy to maintain a blog because you need to spend time thinking on what to post. You have to do research in order to support the topic that you are talking about. You need to visit other’s blog site in order to gain popularity and be rank by google which is very important so that your blog will have the chance to be accepted by advertiser. But most of all it’s fun and it enhances my knowledge about what’s happening in and outside the country through the blogsphere. It’s fun also because I am earning $$$$ too which motivates me to do more updating of my site. Recently I never expect to receive payment from this site (socialspark.com)since I still did not reach the minimum payout but to my surprise after receiving an email from them it says that I can withdraw even if it did not reach the minimum payout. So I click the withdraw button and they immediately send my $$$ through paypal. It was so timely because today is my birthday and I need cash (lol). That is why I would like to thank socialspark.com, blogsvertise.com, sponsoredreviews.com and buyblogreviews.com for giving me tasks for review and eventually paid me for doing so. I hope they will give me more tasks. Above all I would like to thank God, who is the source of my strength and knowledge to do these things and for giving me another year.

Facts About Radiation Poisoning


The devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan has led to a nuclear crisis not only in Japan but to nearby countries as well. Japanese authorities are having difficult time in keeping several reactors cool enough to prevent meltdown and an uncontrolled release of radiation. But they are assuring the public that the radiation leak is unlikely. But we cannot take the possibility of any radiation leak that will affect the health of the people. That is why it is important to know some facts when catastrophes like this will happen.
What happens if a person is exposed to high level of radiation?
Exposure to high level of radiation can cause poisoning, which can result in significant damage to human body tissues, premature aging and possibly death. Exposure to lower levels for a prolonged period of time can increase the risk of poor health.
What are the symptoms of radiation poisoning?
Symptoms of radiation poisoning are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and can begin minutes to days after exposure. The duration of the symptoms ranges from minutes to week. Additional symptoms like loss of appetite, fatigue, fever and possibly seizures and coma can be detected if the person is affected by the radiation. This stage may last a few hours or several months. Radiation poisoning can also cause skin damage.
What level of radiation is dangerous?
Radiation is measured in Sieverts and the devastation of the radiation poisoning depends on the amount of Sieverts.
Can radiation poisoning be treated?
In some ways it says yes, but in other ways no. Potassium iodide can block radioactive iodine from being taken into the thyroid gland, thus protecting it from injury. However, it can’t protect the other parts of the body, or reverse damaged to the thyroid once it has occurred.
