  1. Anti-inflammation and Anti-cancer

There are more than a dozen different flavonoid compounds in spinach and these are powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer fighting agents. In fact, researchers have created specialized spinach extract to use in controlled laboratory studies. Medical studies show that spinach intake can potentially decrease the incidence of breast cancer in women. The science of nutria-genomics and epigenetics points more and more to the impressive value of spinach. Furthermore, inflammation plays a detrimental role in causing a variety of disease processes. The flavonoid and carotenoid content have anti-inflammatory substances and are plentiful in the leaves of the spinach plant.

  • High concentrations of Vitamin A help the skin stay healthy, retain moisture and fight acne, thickening and wrinkles.
  • Calcium buildup in blood vessels is a contributing factor to heart disease and stroke. Vitamin K found in spinach helps prevent calcium from depositing in tissues and blood vessels.

What’s Eating Ryan Fu? – Your job sucks and you’re not passionate about it

I was just ready to get to bed when I got super depressed that I had to go to work in the morning in which I’m not interested in doing anymore but I have to do it. I’m basically just doing it for a paycheck. I behave like a machine just going through the motions in the day. I know what you are thinking, why don’t you just get another job? But I don’t think another shitty job will replace an already shitty job.

I’m trying my hardest to do what I love to do but I’m not getting paid to live off on it yet.

Is this life?

Fuck this boulder!

Cancer Causers at Home, You Should Get Rid Of – Tell us whatever else is Hazardous in your own household?

home-air-quality

You think you may be safe in your own home. But, there are many items in your home that could cause you to develop cancer.

Our home is supposed to be our sanctuary, but we are being invaded by cancer-causing chemicals. There are many carcinogens that find their way into our homes without us even knowing about it through dyes, shampoos, rubber, plastic, perfumes and more. With the times constantly changing, there are more dangers in some homes than there is outside.

This is to inform you of the things that you could possibly have in your home that could be causing you cancer. They may seem the be safe, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Those smells good perfumes may smell pleasant, but you won’t be saying that from the hospital bed.

  1. Candles: The CPSC, Consumer Product Safety Commission, performed a study that confirmed that 40 percent of candles contain lead wires inside the wicks. Manufacturers use lead to make wicks firmer because fragrance oils soften waxes. According the CPSC, a candle that contains lead – core wick releases five times the amount of lead that is considered hazardous for children. Children being exposed to high amounts of lead can result in learning disabilities, hormone disruption, behavioral problems and other health problems.
  2. Air Fresheners: There are so many different kinds of air fresheners right now it is ridiculous. These air fresheners have volatile organic compounds, toxins, and carcinogens like phthalate esters in the formula. A study was released that found 13 common household air fresheners contain chemicals that can affect reproductive development and aggravate asthma.
  3. Antiperspirants: Conventional antiperspirants and deodorants contain several ingredients linked to virulent cancers. Antiperspirants and deodorants are designed to stay in the body for hours, this allows harmful chemicals to get deep into the skin.
  1. Art supplies: There are certain art supplies like rubber cement glue and Epoxy, acrylic solvents and paints, and permanent markers contain chemicals linked to organ damage, cancer and allergies. Children are really vulnerable to toxins because of their under-developed immune system and higher metabolisms, so pay extra attention to the products they use.
