no flu no mi, wrong fish, 2 much fd


in a recent study patients given a flu shot had a 50% reduction in
the incidence of heart attacks compared to those who did
not get a flu shot

this has been noted before
there also is a reduced incidence of stroke and pulmonary embolism

the thinking is that the cholesterol plaque is a source of inflammation
in the artery and a flu infection worsens this inflammation and
cause s clot to form
thus causing a heart attack or stroke

get a flu shot prevent a heart attack or stroke or pe

also the shingles vaccine and the pneumococcal vaccine also
decreased the incidence but not quite as much as the flu shot

get your immunization against the flu
i did as
that would really tick me off if i got the flu and then had the
big one

also get the other two if they are indicated in your age group
if you are over 65 all three are indicated


i was reading the other day about how important it was to eat
fish 2-3 times a week for their omega 3
heck i was taking omega 3 fish oil but got tired of burping
fish all the time so i quit them
i know you need that extra omega 3
i also dont like the taste and smell of some fish for some reason

it has been found that close to 80% of red snapper is not really
red snapper
and other fish sold is not really the fish you were buying
thanks to dna analysis done on samples from restaurants and
fish markets and grocery stores
maybe thats why i dont like it

another worse offender was sushi
another reason not to eat sushi

so now i have another reason to not like fish
you may be getting ripped off
that red snapper may be a carp


thats text lingo for too much food
thats what we are doing
throwing away too much food

40% of food is wasted
the average family of four wastes 20 lbs a year
and $2,275 worth a year

thats a lot of garbage

our family of two rarely throws food away
well my wife she is a food hoarder in the refrigerator

(maybe we could do a reality show on refrigerator hoarders
know where the first show could be)

so i do have to throw out some food
however its changed so much by the time i find it
i may not know what it was

if there is extra food thrown out
it goes to our chickens who love it even if they cant
tell what it is either
they produce eggs and compost which eventually
cycles back to us as food
so its really not lost

the biggest offender to this waste is big portions
so get a smaller plate yall
