Chillies are a small, pungent, hot variety of capsicum (pepper) first cultivated in South and Central America over 5000 years ago.

Chilli peppers may have cancer-fighting properties. Chillies contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A, both important immune system boosters, as well as some of the B vitamins and vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that is an antioxidant.

T his is a beautiful article:
T he woman in your life…very well expressed….

Tomorrow you may get a working woman, but you should marry her with these facts as well.

~ Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;
Who is earning almost as much as you do;

~ One, who has dreams and aspirations just as
you have because she is as human as you are;

~ One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your
Sister haven’t, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system
that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements

~ One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as
much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

~ One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family name !

~ One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen

~ One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook
food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more,
and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother,
a wife, even if she doesn’t want to; and is learning just like you are as
to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won’t like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you;

~ One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;

~ One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

~ One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important,
relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some and trust her;

~ One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house – your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly – your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

But not many guys understand this……

Please appreciate “HER”

Curry, the new weapon in the war on Alzheimer’s

Curry, the new weapon in the war on Alzheimer’s
By JENNY HOPE
Daily Mail , UK newspaper, 4th June 2009

Eating a weekly curry can help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s researchers claim
It probably won’t be our main priority when deciding what takeaway to order.

But curries – so often criticised by advocates of healthy eating – may protect against Alzheimer’s disease.

Eating a curry two or three times a week could help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, an expert said yesterday.

According to Professor Murali Doraiswamy, the magic ingredient is curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric.

Curcumin prevents the spread of harmful amyloid plaques found in the brain of Alzheimer’s sufferers, he said.

These plaques are thought to play a key role in symptoms such as memory loss and mental impairment.

Professor Doraiswamy, who grew up in the southern Indian city of Madras , which is famous for its fiery curries, said: ‘There is very solid evidence that curcumin binds to plaques, and basic research on animals engineered to produce human amyloid plaques has shown benefits.

‘Turmeric has been studied not just in Alzheimer’s research but for a variety of conditions, such as cancer and arthritis.

Turmeric is often referred to as the spice of life in ancient Indian medical lore.’ A trial is under way at the University of California , Los Angeles , to test curcumin’s effects in Alzheimer’s patients and specifically on amyloid plaque proteins.

Similar research is about to start at Southampton University, although some British experts suggested that large amounts of curry would have to be eaten to counteract some of the brain changes that are characteristic of Alzheimer’s.

Professor Doraiswamy, of the Department of Psychiatry, at Duke University Medical Centre, in Durham , North Carolina , said human studies will build on laboratory research.

He told delegates at the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ annual meeting in Liverpool : ‘You can modify a mouse so that at about 12 months its brain is riddled with plaques. If you feed the rodent a curcuminrich diet it dissolves these plaques.’

He added: ‘Studies looking at populations show that people who eat a curry meal two or three times a week seem to have a lower risk for dementia.’ Turmeric is also found in mustard and Professor Doraiswamy predicted a day when those unable, or unwilling, to eat curries might be advised to take a daily ‘curry pill’.

CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?

Then cut it in small pieces and put the pieces in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool.
Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before. Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!
