[www.keralites.net] HOW GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS

 

How God Answers our Prayers?
Amazing Story…
Dr. Ahmed, a well-known doctor, was once on his way to an important medical conference in another city where-in he was going to be granted an award for medical research he had recently done. He was very excited to attend the conference and was desperate to reach as soon as possible. He had worked long and hard on his research and felt his efforts deserved the award he was about to obtain. However, two hours after the plane took off, the pilot announced that there was a problem with the plane and that they were going to make an emergency landing at the nearest airport. Afraid that he wouldn't make it in time for the conference, Dr. Ahmed immediately went to the help desk as soon as the plane landed and explained to the woman at the desk that he was expected to be at a very important conference and that he needed to know the immediate next flight to his destination.
She told him that there was nothing she could do to help him as there wouldn't be another flight to his destination for another ten hours; but suggested he rent a car and drive down to the city as it was only four hours away.
Having no other choice, he agreed to the idea despite his hatred for driving long distances. 
Dr. Ahmed rented a car and started his journey. However, soon after he left, the weather suddenly changed and a heavy storm began. The pouring rain made it very difficult for him to see and he missed a turn he was supposed to take.
After two hours of driving, he was convinced he was lost. Driving in the heavy rain on a deserted road, feeling hungry and tired, he frantically began to look for any sign of civilization. After some time, he finally came across a small tattered house. Desperate, he got out of the car and knocked on the door.
An old woman opened the door for him. He explained his situation and asked if he could use her telephone. She told him that she didn't have a phone or electricity but that he was welcome to come in for some food and something warm to drink as he had completely lost his way and that it would take him some time to get back on the right road.
Hungry, wet and exhausted, the doctor accepted her kind offer and walked in. The woman told him to help himself to some food and hot tea on the table and then excused herself to finish her prayers.
Sitting on the table sipping his tea, the doctor watched the woman in the dim light of candles as she prayed next to what appeared to be a small baby crib.
Every time she finished a prayer, she would start another one. Feeling that the woman might be in need of help, the doctor seized the opportunity to speak as soon as she finished her prayers and told her that he hoped God would answer her prayers. He then said that he noticed that she had been making a lot of prayers and asked if there was something she needed that he could get for her or help her with.
The woman smiled and said that god had answered all her prayers except one. She said she didn't know why God hadn't answered this specific prayer yet but perhaps it was because of her weak faith. The doctor asked if she didn't mind telling him what she needed. Nodding her head in approval, she said that the child in the crib was her grandson. She said that the child had a very rare type of cancer and that all the doctors she had seen were unable to treat him. She also said that she had been told that there was a doctor who specialized in the type of cancer her grandson had, but there was no way for her to get to this doctor as he lived very far from her; so she has been spending her days and nights praying to God to help her find a way to get to Dr. Ahmed - the doctor who could treat her grandson.
Upon hearing her words, tears began to flow down the doctor's cheeks and he said: God is great, there was malfunction in the plane, a thunderstorm hit, and I lost my way; and all of this happened because God did not just answered your prayer by helping you find a way to get to Dr. Ahmed, but he brought Dr. Ahmed to your house. I am Dr. Ahmed.
Tears streaming down her cheeks, the woman raised her hands prayed "Oh God, how great.."
With kind regards,

This is is story and names are Dr.Ahmed and some other doctors .in the same mail.Message is important, not the name.GOD IS ONE

[www.keralites.net] CRUCIAL TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOUR BONES

 

 Crucial Tips for Protecting Your Bones
Osteoporosis is a disease that damages the bones, weakens them and makes them brittle and breakable. There is a significant decrease in bone density, and this causes the bone to weaken and increases the risk of fractures.
Our bones are always building and breaking down bone tissue, when the balance between building and breaking is changed, then the bone density goes down. With age, this problem has a horrible way of increasing in occurrence.
Before you are 10 important tips for the treatment and prevention of decreasing bone density:
1. Yes, you guessed it - Physical activity.
Physical activity, besides being the best thing you can do for yourselves, helps the bones become denser by putting pressure on them, which may prevent the disease to begin with. We recommend using weights.
2. Increase your calcium intake -
Good sources: Green leaves, soy, sardines, broccoli and nuts. Regular bovine milk isn't that good a source of calcium because of its low absorption rate.
3. Increase your omega 3 intake - These fatty acids can be found in flax seeds of fish: Salmon, cod, and halibut - and are essential to keeping your bones strong.
4. Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake - Sorry, but coffee and alcohol 'release' calcium from the bones and damage the hormonal balance in the body important to keep them strong.
5. Reduce red meat - Seems like we're taking all the fun out of lunch, but eating red meat actually reduces the absorption of calcium in the body.
6. No smoking - Cigarette smoke damages bone density.
7. Eat nuts and almonds - These contain magnesium which is essential to the process of absorbing calcium.
8. Get at least 15 minutes of sun exposure a day - Exposing your skin to the sun a few minutes a day is the best way of getting your vitamin D, which function as a sort of glue and helps keep the bone density up.
9. Eat sunflower seeds - Contain zinc, a key mineral for maintaining strong bones.
10. Make sure you're not lacking in these elements, and take according to professional opinion: Boron, Silicone, vitamin C, vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and folic acid

[www.keralites.net] EGGS & CHOLESTEROL

 

 Eggs and Cholesterol – How Many Eggs Can You Safely Eat?
By Kris Gunnars

Woman With Basket of EggsEggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Just imagine… a whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to turn a single cell into an entire baby chicken.
However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because the yolks are high in cholesterol.
In fact, a single medium sized egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol, which is 62% of the recommended daily intake.
People believed that if you ate cholesterol, that it would raise cholesterol in the blood and contribute to heart disease.
But it turns out that it isn't that simple. The more you eat of cholesterol, the less your body produces instead.
Let me explain how that works…

How Your Body Regulates Cholesterol Levels
Cholesterol is often seen as a negative word.
When we hear it, we automatically start thinking of medication, heart attacks and early death.
But the truth is that cholesterol is a very important part of the body. It is a structural molecule that is an essential part of every single cell membrane.
It is also used to make steroid hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol.
Without cholesterol, we wouldn't even exist.
Given how incredibly important cholesterol is, the body has evolved elaborate ways to ensure that we always have enough of it available.
Because getting cholesterol from the diet isn't always an option, the liver actually produces cholesterol.
But when we eat a lot of cholesterol rich foods, the liver starts producing less (1, 2).
So the total amount of cholesterol in the body changes only very little (if at all), it is just coming from the diet instead of from the liver (3, 4).
Bottom Line: The liver produces large amounts of cholesterol. When we eat a lot of eggs (high in cholesterol), the liver produces less instead.
What Happens When People Eat Several Whole Eggs Per Day?

For many decades, people have been advised to limit their consumption of eggs, or at least of egg yolks (the white is mostly protein and is low in cholesterol).
Common recommendations include a maximum of 2-6 yolks per week. However, there really isn't much scientific support for these limitations (5).
Luckily, we do have a number of excellent studies that can put our minds at ease.
In these studies, people are split into two groups… one group eats several (1-3) whole eggs per day, the other group eats something else (like egg substitutes) instead. Then the researchers follow the people for a number of weeks/months.
These studies show that:
In almost all cases, HDL (the "good") cholesterol goes up (6, 7, 8).
Total and LDL cholesterol levels usually don't change, but sometimes they increase slightly (9, 10, 11, 12).
Eating Omega-3 enriched eggs can lower blood triglycerides, another important risk factor (13, 14).
Blood levels of carotenoid antioxidants like Lutein and Zeaxanthine increase significantly (15, 16, 17).
It appears that the response to whole egg consumption depends on the individual.
In 70% of people, it has no effect on Total or LDL cholesterol. However, in 30% of people (termed "hyper responders"), these numbers do go up slightly (18).
That being said, I don't think this is a problem. The studies show that eggs change the LDL particles from small, dense LDL to Large LDL (19, 20).
People who have predominantly large LDL particles have a lower risk of heart disease. So even if eggs cause mild increases in Total and LDL cholesterol levels, this is not a cause for concern (21, 22, 23).
The science is clear that up to 3 whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people who are trying to stay healthy.
Bottom Line: Eggs consistently raise HDL (the "good") cholesterol. For 70% of people, there is no increase in Total or LDL cholesterol. There may be a mild increase in a benign subtype of LDL in some people.
Eggs and Heart Disease

Many studies have looked at egg consumption and the risk of heart disease.
All of these studies are so-called observational studies. In studies like these, large groups of people are followed for many years.
Then the researchers use statistical methods to figure out whether certain habits (like diet, smoking or exercise) are linked to either a decreased or increased risk of some disease.
These studies, some of which include hundreds of thousands of people, consistently show that people who eat whole eggs are no more likely to develop heart disease. Some of the studies even show a reduced risk of stroke (24, 25, 26).
However… one thing that is worth noting, is that these studies show that diabetics who eat eggs are at an increased risk of heart disease (27).
Whether the eggs are causing the increased risk in diabetics is not known. These types of studies can only show a correlation and it is possible that the diabetics who eat eggs are, on average, less health conscious than those who don't.
This may also depend on the rest of the diet. On a low-carb diet (by far the best diet for diabetics), eggs lead to improvements in heart disease risk factors (28, 29).
Bottom Line: Many observational studies show that people who eat eggs don't have an increased risk of heart disease, but some of the studies do show an increased risk in diabetics.
Eggs Have Plenty of Other Health Benefits Too

Let's not forget that eggs are about more than just cholesterol… they're also loaded with nutrients and have various other impressive benefits:
They're high in Lutein and Zeaxanthine, antioxidants that reduce your risk of eye diseases like Macular Degeneration and Cataracts (30, 31).
They're very high in Choline, a brain nutrient that over 90% of people are lacking in (32).
They're high in quality animal protein, which has many benefits – including increased muscle mass and better bone health (33, 34).
Studies show that eggs increase satiety and help you lose fat (35, 36).
Eggs also taste amazing and are incredibly easy to prepare.
So even IF eggs were to have mild adverse effects on blood cholesterol (which they don't), the benefits of consuming them would still far outweigh the negatives.
Bottom Line: Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They contain important brain nutrients and powerful antioxidants that can protect the eyes.
How Much is Too Much?

Unfortunately, we don't have studies where people are fed more than 3 eggs per day.
It is possible (although unlikely) that eating even more than that could have a detrimental effect on health. Eating more than 3 is uncharted territory, so to speak.
However… I did find an interesting case study (a study with only one individual). It was an 88 year old man who consumed 25 eggs per day.
He had normal cholesterol levels and was in very good health (37).
Of course, a study of one doesn't prove anything, but it's interesting nonetheless.
It's also important to keep in mind that not all eggs are the same. Most eggs at the supermarket are from chickens that are raised in factories and fed grain-based feeds.
The healthiest eggs are Omega-3 enriched eggs, or eggs from hens that are raised on pasture. These eggs are much higher in Omega-3s and important fat-soluble vitamins (38, 39).
Overall, eating eggs is perfectly safe, even if you're eating up to 3 whole eggs per day.
I personally eat 3-6 whole eggs per day (about 30-40 per week) and my health has never been better.
Given the incredible range of nutrients and powerful health benefits, quality eggs may just be the healthiest food on the planet.

[www.keralites.net] SITTING IS UNHEALTHY

 

With evidence mounting that sitting for long stretches of time is unhealthy , many of us naturally wonder how best to respond. Should we stand up, or is merely standing insufficient? Must we also stroll or jog or do jumping jacks?
A new study offers some helpful perspective, suggesting that even a few minutes per hour of moving instead of remaining in a chair might substantially reduce the harms of over sitting. As most of us have heard by now, long bouts of sitting can increase someone's risk for diabetes, heart disease, obesity, kidney problems and premature death. These risks remain elevated even if someone exercises but then spends most of the rest of his or her waking hours in a chair.
In a representative and sobering study being published next month in Diabetologia, scientists found that every hour that overweight adults spent watching television, which is a handy way to measure sitting time at home, increased their risk of becoming diabetic by 3.4%. But despite such health concerns, simply advising people to abandon their chairs and stand all day is impractical. Many of us who have experimented with standing or treadmill desks have discovered that they can have their own deleterious impacts on typing accuracy, general productivity and our lower backs.
But because this study is observational, said Dr Srinivasan Beddhu, a professor at the University of Utah, it doesn't prove that walking instead of sitting directly reduces death risk, only that the two are associated.
