Healthy Tomato-Hearty Tomato

A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers,just like
our heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a
plant chemical that reduces
the risk of heart disease and
several cancers.

The Women’s Health Study – an
American research
programmed which tracks the health of 40,000 women
– found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent
less heart disease than women who had very little
lycopene.

Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps
counter the effect of
unhealthy LDL cholesterol.
One Canadian study,
published in the journal Experimental Biology and
Medicine, said there was convincing evidence that
lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.

According to this widely circulated health warning, people should not eat raw or left-over onion because onions are "poisonous".

The fact is that onions are not especially prone to bacterial contamination. In fact, quite the opposite. Onions feature a variety of sulphur compounds that have antibacterial activity. Furthermore, cutting an onion triggers the release of enzymes that initiate a chemical reaction producing propenesulfenic acid, which in turn decomposes to yield sulphuric acid.

It is the sulphuric acid that makes you cry by irritating the eyes! But sulphuric acid also inhibits the growth of bacteria. Also, a cut onion's surface dries out quickly, reducing the moisture that is needed for bacteria to multiply.

Papaya leaves can cure dengue~

Papaya leaves juice are a possible cure for dengue fever, a recent study revealed.

It has been reported that many people consume papaya leaves or pegaga juice to increase their platelet count after they contract dengue fever.

A recent study, conducted by a group of researchers from local and foreign universities, indicated that the powder from papaya leaves has substances responsible for the release and/or production of thrombocytes (platelets).

The study was initiated and led by Dr S. Kathiresan of AIMST University. Dr Kathiresan said the leaves of papaya fruit were high in complex vitamins that might help bone marrow to rapidly increase blood platelet production.

“The dengue virus’ main effect is on platelet production. Nor*mally, a platelet in our body lasts for about five to 10 days and the body replenishes them when required,”

“This virus destroys the body’s capacity to produce new platelets (during the period the virus is effective). The platelet count for a normal person varies from 150,000 to 250,000 per micro litre of blood. On becoming infected, a patient’s platelet count starts falling.

“A platelet count below 100,000 per microlitre is alarming – immediate medical attention is required. A platelet count below 50,000 can be fatal,” he added.

A fall in the platelet count prevents formation of clots and this leads to haemorrhaging, which results in both internal and external bleeding.

How should Take~

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned and pound and squeeze with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf.. So two tablespoon per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will loose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like that.
