Fish delivery and moreHurricane Sandy made some errors in fish industry. We could not get some fish from northeast last 7 days.
Flounder is one of them. It will come today but not much. Live scallop and clam are fine but not sure for this weekend.
I have good tuna for this weekend. It was 300 lbs. and just bought 40 lbs. Uni is very good, California is always sunny recently.
I will go to Hawaii for my friend’s wedding ceremony. I only stay in Hawaii 72 hours.
Weight Control and GolfWinter season is not easy to lose weight. I had 174 lbs. on Monday and lost 2 lbs. My weight was 172 lbs. this morning.
I bought a bike, Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse at Amazon .com.
I can use this during watching CNBC in the morning or Food Network at midnight. We will see how this bike works.
Probiotic twice a day zaps 'bad' cholesterol, could prevent heart disease
According to Mitchell L. Jones, M.D., Ph.D., lead author of the study and a research assistant in the faculty of medicine at McGill University in Montreal, taking twice daily doses of a probiotic lowered key cholesterol-bearing molecules in the blood, caused "bad" cholesterol level (the kind that clogs arteries) to plunge and made the total cholesterol count healthier.
This is a particularly important study for mainstream medicine to be aware of because of two reasons. First, it involved a double blind study in humans. And second, it shows that a natural substance can do something Big Pharma's side effect-ridden statins can't do -- lower "bad" cholesterol without potential harm.
In earlier studies, a strain of live probiotic microorganisms (Lactobacillus reuteri) had shown promise in lowering blood levels of LDL or "bad" cholesterol. For the new study, the investigators looked to see if the same probiotic could lower LDL and reduce molecules of cholesterol attached to fatty acids known as cholesterol esters. A combination of elevated cholesterol esters plus high LDL has been tied to dangerous plaque buildup in the arteries, resulting in a heightened risk of heart disease.
The study involved 127 adult research subjects who all had high cholesterol. About half the patients took the probiotic two times a day, while the rest were given placebo capsules. After just nine weeks, those taking the probiotic had LDL levels 11.6 percent lower than those on placebos. In addition, cholesterol esters were reduced by 6.3 percent and cholesterol ester saturated fatty acids fell by almost nine percent, compared with the placebo group.
The people taking the probiotic had no side effects and, as the researchers noted, the probiotic strain L. reuteri has a long history of safe use.
As Natural News previously reported, other breakthrough research published in the journal Nature strongly indicates an imbalance of "good" versus "bad" bacteria in the intestinal tract appears to trigger Type II diabetes --and probiotics may help prevent or treat that condition, too. In addition, scientists have also discovered that probiotics can increase the body's immune response to the flu virus and may be an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis.
This is from natural health news.
