Did You Know?

* Astragalus (Chinese milk vetch root) is an herbal remedy that is highly effective in treating and preventing the flu.

Astragalus induces the production of interferon in the body, especially at the mucosal surfaces where it is particularly helpful. Echinacea can also be used, but may have more side effects, especially for people with autoimmune diseases or chemical hypersensitivity.

* Lecithin for flu prevention: lecithin alters the calcium/phosphorus balance in the body that can deny the flu virus the type of phosphorus it needs to replicate. One capsule every hour for five hours has been known to knock the flu out.

* One out of every two men will suffer prostate problems after age 50. And that number will climb as high as 90% of men in their 70s and 80s if detoxification and prevention measures are not taken.

* Like drugs, vitamins and supplements should be kept away from heat, humidity, and direct light. If you notice a change in the odor, taste or appearance of a supplement (or a drug), discard it regardless of the expiration date.

* If you store your supplements and medications properly, many of them can still be effective after the expiration date.

* Everyone knows that calcium is necessary to help form the tooth enamel that protects against cavities. But calcium can't do the job alone. In fact, without the assistance of magnesium, calcium only supplies soft enamel, which isn't strong enough to battle tooth decay. Magnesium and calcium together are essential to create hard enamel and healthy teeth.

* New research conducted by the USDA shows black tea may lower blood levels of low-density "bad" cholesterol (LDL) as much as 11% without reducing heart-healthy HDL cholesterol.

* Cornell University studies found a cup of cocoa (natural cocoa without added process sugars) has a higher antioxidant level than green tea or red wine.

* According to an Oct. 2, 2003 article in Slate Magazine, the parents of a girl are significantly more likely to divorce than parents of a boy. The number grows even larger when more female children are tossed into the mix - parents of three girls are twice as likely to divorce than parents of three boys.

* Most candles are made of paraffin, a petroleum by-product containing eleven different toxins. Breathing in the soot released by paraffin is as dangerous as inhaling second-hand smoke. Scented paraffin candles are worse.

* Recent FDA testing indicated that canned albacore, known as white tuna, contains almost three times as much mercury as canned light tuna.

* When Teflon coated pans reach 554-degrees, ultra-fine particles start coming off the pan. The particles can imbed in the lungs and lead to "Teflon Flu", flu-like symptoms including headache, backache, and a temperature between 100 and 104 degrees.
