I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything.”

Mobile casino just doubled the fun which online casino used to offers. Who would have thought that you can now bring casino wherever you go and that you can play it whenever you want. While waiting for a bus in the terminal, while in line in the payment bills, while waiting for your girlfriend to arrive. This is really fun. And players need not to worry because whatever you find in online casinos in your computer you can also find it in your mobile casinos. They have no deposit mobile casinos for beginners, they also have a lot of casino bonuses and they are loaded with casino games just for casino lovers.
With this new innovation, boredom will soon be eliminated in the dictionary.

Saturated Fat - Solid saturated animal fat should be very limited in the diet. Saturated fats lead to increased levels of LDL (bad cholesterol), which poses many threats to heart health.
Trans Fat - Trans fats, partially hydrogenated unsaturated fats, should be completely avoided in the diet. Excessive trans fat consumption is one of the greatest risk factors for coronary artery disease. Some places around the world have actually banned trans fats in recent years.
Refined White Flour - Eating excess amounts of refined flour has been linked to heart disease and, because of its high glycemic index, diabetes as well. Instead, opt for whole grain products.
Vegetable Oils - Oils high in omega-6 fatty acids (canola, sunflower, corn, coconut) contribute to the development of heart disease, according to Health-Heart.org. They raise LDL levels and can even cause irregular heart rhythms with excessive consumption over time.
Sugar - Sugar should be eaten in limited quantities. It has an array of negative health effects, including contributing to high cholesterol and heart disease, according to Health-Heart.org. Raw sugar, honey and molasses are better alternatives.

A strict detox diet involves the elimination of processed foods, preservatives and additives, starches (pasta, bread), gluten, high-fat foods, dairy, refined sugars, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and all meats from one's diet. A less strict detox diet may include one cup of coffee per day to avoid any headaches and certain types of fish.
Detox Duration and Frequency, To achieve maximum results, a detox should last one week and should be made into a habit in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Those who are detoxing for the first time may experience headaches that are associated with the withdrawal of caffeine and other foods that are avoided during a detox. How often you should detox is dependent on your lifestyle, metabolism and regular diet. You should consult a health care provider to determine your detox frequency.
Cardinal Detox Rules -Since the main purpose of any detox is to cleanse one's body by eliminating toxins, ideally, all foods should be organic and fresh. During a detox, all foods should be sautéed with extra virgin olive oil, broiled, steamed or baked. Most important, drinking lots of water will help flush out toxins. Water will also cut unnecessary food cravings by keeping you feeling full.
"Must Eat" Vegetables and Fish - Increasing your vegetable intake is good, but replacing any red meats and other foods on the "to avoid during a detox" list with vegetables is great. Although all vegetables have some sort of nutritional value, the colorful ones offer the most health benefits. There's a good reason why mom wanted you to always finish that broccoli. Broccoli not only has high levels of Vitamin A, B and C, but it also contains a plant chemical, which acts as a liver detoxifier. Cauliflower, cabbage and brussel spouts, along with broccoli, all belong to the cabbage family and provide nutritional benefits similar to that of broccoli. Spinach, kale, chard and collard greens are high in antioxidants, while red, yellow and orange bell peppers are packed with Vitamin C.
All of these vegetables, in addition to tomatoes, onions, garlic, shallots, chives and leeks, are cancer-reducing foods. The next time you add these foods to a dish, remember that they not only add spice but also reduce the risk of cancer. Ideally, saturated fats should be avoided altogether, because they are toxins that build up in cell membranes and increase the risk of heart disease. During a detox, saturated fats should be replaced with nutritional fatty acids such as those found in olive and flaxseed oils and salmon and tuna.
Salmon and tuna contain the highest levels of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and are therefore the preferred fish for detox diets. Considered essential nutrients for the development of healthy cells, these fatty acids cannot be made by our bodies and must come from foods. A lack of these fatty acids can result in chapped lips, cracked or dry skin and brittle hair. Beyond skin conditions, these fatty acids can also improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation.

Features - Organic foods contain more nutrients, cancer-fighting antioxidants, vitamins and minerals than conventional foods. Studies show that organic farming boosts biodiversity throughout the food chain. Eating organic promotes good health and minimizes environmental impact.
Benefits - Consumers avoid pesticides, additives and genetically-modified foods. By eating organic, consumers reduce their exposure and their children's exposure to chemical laden foods. There is a decrease in the likelihood of cancers and other diseases, developmental delays and behavioral concerns in children.
Significance - Organic farmers must undergo stricter government regulations for product integrity than conventional farmers. Organic produce and meat are untreated and free of harmful contaminants and additives, significantly reducing toxin exposure. Consumers are more apt to find their foods at a local farmers market. It not only benefits the local economy, but ultimately there is less fossil fuel consumption.
Effects - Going organic improves soil quality. Organic farmers do not use synthetics and chemicals to fertilize. This helps safeguard the climate and water quality. Animals raised organically are given organic feed without hormones or antibiotics.
Prevention/Solution - Organic farming methods do not employ genetically modified practices. The food is free from chemicals, synthetics and additives. Produce is not artificially ripened. Soil is cleaner, with less residual elements left behind; run-off water is not tainted with pesticides or chemicals.
Misconceptions - Organic food is assumed to cost significantly more than nonorganic products. However, It is possible for a shopper on a budget to replace peppers, strawberries, spinach and potatoes, which all have higher risks of poisoning, with organic options.
Potential - Eating organic is gaining acceptance globally. Organic food is more readily found in grocery stores versus specialty or health food stores. More local farmers have changed to organic and are being supported in communities. The importance of eating organic is that you are not only benefiting yourself. As a smart consumer, you are imparting a healthier lifestyle that can sustain the environment for future generations.

Antioxidants - Polyphenols, substances found in blueberries, actually make them blue. These same substances also contribute to the health benefits and antioxidant properties of blueberries, making them one of the richest antioxidant foods. Eating blueberries helps fight free radicals, which are connected with cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease, according to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council.
High Fiber - Blueberries provide an ample source of fiber, according to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council. A lack of fiber is a common problem in American diets. Fiber helps with digestive problems and promotes heart health. Blueberry consumption benefits both the digestive system and the heart.
Low Calories - Both blueberries and blackberries are delicious, have a one-of-a-kind taste and are good for you. Those wishing to shed a few pounds need not look any further for healthy snacks that add little to daily calorie intake. Munch on these two types of berries without worrying about the consequences. One cup of raw blueberries is a sizable snack that only adds 80 calories to the day's intake, while blackberries are even lighter on calories at 62 per cup.
Vitamin C - Vitamin C is essential for normal development and growth. The human body requires a regular supply of vitamin C to develop collagen, repair damaged tissues and slow down the effects of aging. The body expels vitamin C through urine, therefore making it necessary to replenish it with vitamin-rich foods and supplements daily. One cup of blackberries provides the body with half of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, according to the Natural Health website. Blueberries are also rich in vitamin C, providing 25 percent of the daily-recommended amount in one cup.
Fight Cancer - Eating more fruits and vegetables has long been associated with reducing the occurrence of cancer. Blackberries are especially good in fighting the disease. In a study published by The Journal of Biological Chemistry, blackberries contain a compound known as C3G, which produces activity in the cells similar to chemotherapy. This compound was isolated and given to test animals who showed a significant reduction in cancer cells. This activity, combined with high amounts of antioxidants, make the blackberry a smart food for fighting cancer.

Living in this world can be cruel and I am saying this believing that everyone who is reading this agrees. We all know that to be able to survive in this world you need to accept that we need to be tough. Though it’s been a fact that we are merely trying to survive living in this world it still the magic of life still amazes me. As much as it is tough to live in this world it is also beautiful to live.
But not most people see things like I see things. There are some who are barely surviving and are not built on facing the storms of life. I have read on some online articles about this Oxycontin Detox, Oxycodone Withdrawal Symptoms and Drug Detox. And I am saddened by the fact that there a lot of people who are going through this drug addiction because they couldn’t handle life. I call them the casualties of life.
It has always been my interest, the cases of people who use drugs to escape from emotional pain or either uses it as a defense mechanism with all the negativity happening to their lives. I have this never ending interest of finding out ways of understanding them. Unraveling the reasons behind their troubled lives and eventually find out ways on how to help them. We can no longer fix their past but we could definitely give them a decent future.
Hopefully there are also a lot of people like me who wants to help these people I call the casualty of life. If only this world is not as maddening as it is. If only life could be a little less hard. But then I cannot question the higher power about how he designed and planned all of this. The least we could do is try to understand.

1. Shop for lean cuts of red meat. Beef is high in iron, especially beef liver. However, try to stick to lean cuts. 97 percent fat free hamburger is a good option for teens and families dealing with iron-deficiency anemia. A three ounce serving of beef is going to provide between 3 and 3.2 Mg of iron.
2. Save money with iron rich cuts of poultry. Chicken and turkey tend to be less expensive than beef and they also tend to be a healthier meat choice because they are lower in fat. Chicken liver is one of the best sources of iron around. A 3.5 ounce cooked chicken liver has about 12.8 Mg of iron, while the leg meat of chicken contains about 1.3 Mg of iron per 3.5 ounce serving. The dark meat of turkey has 2.3 Mg of iron per 3.5 ounce serving whereas the white meat only has about 1.6 Mg of iron.
3. Buy lean cuts of pork to cure your anemia. Pork is another great source of iron. A three ounce serving of broiled pork loin contains about .8 Mg of iron.
4. Sample some seafood. Oysters have a high concentration of iron and provide you with about 4.5 Mg of iron per six piece serving. Clams offer you about 3 Mg per 3/4 cup serving. A 3 ounce serving of Halibut contains .9 Mg of iron, crab and tuna contain about .8 ounces of iron per 3 ounce serving and four large shrimp provide you with .7 Mg of iron.
