Yesterday, when I checked this blog, my anti virus software suddenly popped up saying it is virus infected. I suspected I might have clicked some links on my message box that has virus on it thus the reason why my message box is no longer visible. However, I thought it was primarily on the IFramer as it says on my antivirus software, and I thought, it must have been on my layout??? I have this layout for quite a while and perhaps it was the cause. It wasn't an official blogger template, so I suspected it has been hacked with some malicious malware or something...I changed the template with the official blogger template and I noticed my anti virus software didn't pop up anymore.
So, for now, I still have to observe further. I love to have the message box, but for security reasons, I don't want my readers to be annoyed when they see a virus popping on my blog! It's like driving all my readers away.
To those who loves to mess up somebody's blog with virus, I don't understand what good thing can you get for doing it. You're just a pathetic loser!

Know Your Food Healers - 2


  • Grapefruit - Another fruit that can prevent cancer. One of the compounds in red grape fruit that gives the fruit its pinkish hue is lycopene. It's also found in tomatoes and sweet red peppers considered to be a "very important", very potent anti oxidant and free radical scavenger, says a nutritionist at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Grapefruit is also an excellent source of limonoids, which is like Vitamin C, have potent anticancer properties.
  • Cinnamon - Lowers down cholesterol. Half teaspoon of cinnamon each day could cut your triglycerides and total cholesterol by 12-30% while it boosts your body's ability to store blood sugar.
  • Grape juice - Both wine and grapejuice share the same compounds that lower cholesterol, prevent hardening of the arteries, and fight heart disease, but grape juice does all these things without the calories (or the buzz for that matter) of alcohol. So, if there are times when wine wouldn't be appropriate, reach for the grapejuice to get your daily dose of heart protection. A recent study showed that a brand of 100% grapejuice made from Concord grapes had the highest anti oxidant count of all beverages measured.
  • Corn - Lose weight with corn for just 83 calories per ear. If you want to lose weight, cut cholesterol and help prevetn cancer, you can have it all in one meal. - Try raw corn! According to a doctor from New Jersey, this is tasty and healthy and almost with no preparation needed, - just husk and wash. Boiling corn removes most of the nutrients in the water but if you must boil it, the water can be used as the base for soup.

  • Carrots - Reduce your risk of cancer by eating carrots. They are one of nature's richest source of beta-carotene, an anti-oxidant compound that fights free radicals, the unstable molecules in the body that contribute to conditions ranging from heart disease and cancer to macular degeneration. Carrots also protect your arteries, your heart, all your organs against disease. Surprisingly, carrots are better for you when eaten cooked instead of raw. It's because they have lot of dietary fiber - more than 2 grams in 1 carrot which traps the beta-carotene from the fiber cells, making it easier for your body to absorb.

More Cholesterol Please!

Perhaps, you may have heard - it's good to have a low cholesterol level. But did you know that having a higher level of HDL (good cholesterol) can help lower your heart disease risk? High HDL may lower your risk for heart attack, stroke and dying from heart disease.

Bad cholesterol forms a buildup in your arteries called plaque. This plaque can block blood flow, causing heart attacks and strokes.

On the other hand, HDL carries LDL, or "bad" cholesterol from other parts of your body to your liver. It breaks down in your liver and then leaves your body. This helps keep cholesterol from building up in your arteries.

Get a blood test to find out your cholesterol levels at least once every 5 years. Your doctor may suggest more tests if you have some risk factors. besides LDL and HDL levels, your test results will show numbers for triglycerides. These blood fats also clog arteries and boost heart disease risk.

  • Total cholesterol: lower than 200mg/dl
  • LDL cholesterol: lower than 100mg/dl
  • HDL cholesterol: above 40 mg/dl for men and above 50mg/dl for women.
  • Triglycerides: lower than 150mg/dl
Try these tips to increase your HDL:
  • Be physically active for at least 30 minutes most days of the week.
  • Lose weight if you're overweight.
  • Ask your doctor how to make lifestyle changes work for you.
  • If lifestyle fixes don't work, you can ask your doctor about HDL-raising medications.

Are You Really Covered With Your Health Care? - Part 2


  • Follow The Rules. Every major insurance carrier offers many plans, each with distinct rules and requirements. Again, check you Summary Plan Description to make sure you know exactly what yours are because if you don't follow them, it could cost you. For example, you might be covered for an operation in the hospital but you don't realize that one of your attending physicians is not part of your health plan. Then, you'll be paying more than you expected. If you aren't sure whether a particular doctor participates in your health plan, check not only with the insurance company but also with the doctor's billing staff.
  • Don't Get Locked Out. under HIPAA, insurers can't deny your complete coverage as long as you switch from one plan to the next within 63 days (more in some states) and your earlier coverage lasted for at least a year. Do what you can to avoid that 63-day gap, for example, by joining your spouse's plan or continuing with your old job's health plan under federal COBRA rules.
  • Understand COBRA. (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) allows you to continue your group coverage after you leave your job (unless your group is less than 20 people). But you generally have to pay the entire premium, including the portion that your employer used to pay. If you have serious condition, COBRA might be the only coverage you can get. You can usually stay with COBRA for 18 months. It's as well helpful for young adults who "age out" of their parent's plan; they can keep COBRA for up to 3 years.
  • Fight Back. You have certain rights under state or federal law to appeal health-plan decisions you think are wrong.
