Foods To Protect You From Protate Cancer

CONSULTANT urologist Dr Robert Wan has said that a vegetarian diet is best for men trying to minimise their risk of developing prostate cancer, but, convincing them to go vegan is not the easiest of tasks, so men are instead asked to reduce their intake of red meat and increase products that have proven to be beneficial to the prostate.
Diet and nutrition has been identified as one of the risk factors for prostate cancer and Dr Wan told the Jamaica Observer Friday that food is indeed a factor to be concerned about.
"... We know that people who are living in the Far East have low incidence of prostate cancer... people in, like, Japan and Taiwan, those areas," said Dr Wan. "While people who are living in Western countries like the USA, for example, have a high incidence of prostate cancer."
The consultant urologist said this may be attributed to genes but asserted that if Asians move to the West, which they have, they do develop a higher risk for prostate cancer while living in the West. He also said if Western fast food and Western-styled foods are moved to the Far East, "then we are beginning to see a rise in prostate cancer, so we believe that foods do play a part".
Besides animal fat, which Dr Wan told the Sunday Observer seems to be the main problem, which most people get from red meat, especially if the meat is cooked at very high temperatures, milk is another product that seems to increase the risk for developing prostate cancer.
And though the studies are conflicting, Dr Wan said there seems to be a general consensus about some foods that seem to be helpful in the prevention and in some cases management, of prostate cancer.
"The foods that seem to be helpful are soya products, soya protein, green tea, tomatoes, and then some of the other things like broccoli, pomegranate, turmeric, which is a component of curry," the consultant urologist explained. "Studies on coffee have been conflicting but the general feeling is that coffee is beneficial, it is not harmful, and the high-fibre diet. Those are the things that we
think are favourable in regards to the food."
The foods thought to be beneficial in the prevention of prostate cancer have different constituents, but Dr Wan said that the general feeling is that it is the anti-oxidants in some of the foods. He also pointed out that there is some evidence that by giving someone with prostate cancer pomegranate, its progression may not be as rapid as someone who has not been consuming it.
The latest study on tomatoes, Dr Wan said, suggests that if tomatoes are consumed several times per week this could significantly reduce the risk of prostate cancer. However, he pointed out that "this is one of the things that is a bit conflicting... but we seem to be coming to an understanding that the tomato is probably a good thing if you are thinking about your prostate".
"And the cooked tomatoes are effective. The raw tomatoes are not so effective because the constituent in tomatoes is a thing called lycopene and we don't absorb lycopene from the raw tomatoes as much as we do from the cooked... tomatoes," shared Dr Wan.

How To Prevent The Ebola Virus

I love the old time saying prevention is better than cure yep, base on my research the only cure for Ebola is prevention you just have to prevent this killer virus from entering your system.

The people with the main role to prevent Ebola are governments, systems have to be put in place  at all point of entry to your borders to prevent people with Ebola from entering your country. All people travelling from countries that have an outbreak of Ebola should present a blood test to show that the are negative of the virus.

If Ebola cross your borders it is up to you as an individual to prevent it from catching you, try your very best to avoid all contacts with individual with the Ebola virus. It is spread thru semen. saliva, feces, vomit,  breast milk, basically all body fluids.

Foods That Helps To Fight Against The Chikungunya virus (Chik-V)

The key to successfully fighting the chikungunya virus and other diseases is having a strong immune system. It has been proven that persons with a strong immune system recover much faster from chik-V and other illnesses. Below are some foods that can help to boost your body's immune system.
Garlic is a superfood that offers several antioxidants that battle immune-system invaders.
Both authentic green and black teas are loaded with disease-fighting polyphenols and flavonoids - natural chemical compounds that have been found to increase immune system activation. These antioxidants seek out cell-damaging free radicals and destroy them, building a stronger immune system.
Thanks to the mineral zinc found in oysters, it is a great immune booster.
Ripe watermelon has plenty of the powerful antioxidant glutathione. Known to help strengthen the immune system so it can fight off infection, glutathione is found near the rind in the red pulpy flesh of the watermelon.
Cabbage, easy and inexpensive to find, is a source of the immune-strengthening glutamine. Have any variety of cabbage (white, red, Chinese) on its own - raw or steamed - or add to soups and stews for extra antioxidants to boost your meal's nutritional value.
Like carrots, sweet potatoes have the antioxidant beta-carotene, which mops up damaging free radicals. Sweet potatoes also boast vitamin A, which is linked to slowing the ageing process and may reduce the risk of some cancers.
Broccoli is a proven immune-boosting food. One study reported that a particular chemical in broccoli helped stimulate the immune systems of mice.

Why Would Apple Shut Down Beat

Why would Apple shut down Beat, it is the  same question i asked when Microsoft discontinue words perfect the greatest words processor software of all time. Apple bought beat for 3 billion dollars and now plan to shut it down but why, the answer is simple monopoly.

If there is a product that is competing against yours, one way to win the battle is to get rid of your competitor completely. There are many ways to do this, you can compete with quality that's going to cost you a fortune, or you can run a expensive advertisement campaign which most times don't work.

The best way to do this is to buy out your competitor, give them a offer they cant refuse then you simple merge both products together or just simple dump one. We have seen this over and over again.

Apple has finally learn from Microsoft the old business trick, what Microsoft did was they did not improve on there product or in some case use the best of the two. What they did was throw away the product that they bought and used there owe which in most case the Microsoft product was the worst. Take for instance word perfect and lotus 123, Microsoft dump those two great product and promote Microsoft Office.

As consumers what we would like to see is Apple merging Itunes and Beat and give us as consumer a great product.

What Profession Should you Choose

What profession should i choose, that a very good question many young people are asking that question everyday. Some people say that you should choose something that you love, but can that land you a job after graduation.

With more and more jobs going to china less and less professionals are needed so many people are faced with unemployment and base on market trends things wont be changing for now. You have to look towards a profession that is in demand

Everybody wants to be a doctor, lawyer, teacher or nurse these profession are overloaded some countries like Jamaica have put a stop order on hiring new teachers because of the over crowd in the profession. Getting educated is like a business you have to look on demand and supply before you venture and base on your research you find a profession that is in demand and then you proceed.

If you don't use that approach you are on your own, you will find it very hard to get a job and pay back your student loan. 

I will do series of blogger on jobs that are in demand

Making Money Writing Programs

With the high inflation eating away my savings, i have been exploring ways to make money both online and offline. One way i found to do this is by writing applications mostly database applications.

Writing programs takes a lot of time and effort but with the right marketing skills it can worth your time, before you write a program you have to do your field study. You have to know what you are writing the program about, you have to know what the client wants so you can tailor the application to suits the customers needs.

Take for instance you are writing a program for a small motel, you have to learn about there present reservation system so that you customize your program to suit there  needs. Reporting is very important most companies use reports in order to make very important decision. You have to find out from your client the type of report he or she needs.

The next step is to do your coding there are quite a few applications you can use to write your programs what i use is Visual Studios. It takes sometime to learn but as soon as you get a drift of it you are good to go.

Marketing is a very important word in the world of business if you have the best product and nobody knows about it, it makes no sense there are lot of ways you can market your programs there are a lot of sites online that sells your software, you can also use social media like Facebook , twitter , Google Plus and YouTube Etc.
