Thursday Trivia

First of all, I have 3 prayer requests for my prayer warriors out there. Remember my friend Rebecca and her sister Judy with cancer? Please continue to pray for them. Second, I recently mentioned my great niece, Cooper. She is still in the hospital (5 month old with pneumonia), please pray for her to maintain an adequate oxygen level when not on oxygen so she can be weaned from the O2 and come home soon! And 3rd, I have a very special personal unspoken request. I will not share at this time, but if you pray to the Lord for me, he definitely knows what it is! Thanks!

Now on to some Thursday Trivia....

(I posted a similiar post a few weeks back, but important enough I thought I would post again) Did you know God has his on Pharmacy, and it is our food?? Well, he does. Let me explain....
A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and YES science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more stem veggies look just like bones. These foods specifically
target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Eggplant, Avocados and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - and they are shaped just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?! .... It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm well to overcome male sterility
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.

Grapefruits, Oranges, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. (added: so a good cry when cooking with onions is a good thing!)
I did check out and neither the above or the following was listed at all so I am taking both of them as true...they do make good sense.
Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good 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 nice to have a cup of cold drink (this is me) with or 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. (You know, I remember Richard Simmons saying to drink warm-hot lemon water to help you lose weight).
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. (These are the symptoms my daddy had before his heart attack 10 years ago) 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.
Now I am not a gardener, I do not have a green thumb, and "I don't know nuthin' about birthin me a garden!" I do wish I had a green thumb and I do hope to learn. My daddy has a wonderful veggie garden every year and at least I get some of what grows in his garden. My grandparents all had green thumbs. But for all of you lucky gardeners out there, here is todays:
Quote of the Day
I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become,
I will always plant a large garden in the spring.
Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy
that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?

Until we meet again,
