Controllable and Uncontrollable Risk Factors Best Diet A Totally No – Oil Diet Fish Oil In Your Diet Lowering Your Triglyceride Level Oatmeal As a Healthy Cereal White Bread or Brown? What about Soybean? How to Make Sprouts What, No Meat? What about Tomatoes? Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction One of the main reasons why I decided to write this book is because while doing research on heart ailments and natural ways in which to keep healthy, I found out some terrible statistics, which are not going to be told to you by your friendly neighborhood cardiologist. Did you know that about 24.1 million people in the USA, alone suffer from heart disease? I thought that that was a terrible number, till I found that the statistics of Asian countries like India [60 million!] and China statistics were even more. One out of every four people in Tasmania suffered from heart disease, and high blood pressure. They hold the world record for the most number of people suffering from heart disease. That was surprising, because I was under the impression that this could possibly have been the prerogative of those European countries, like Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, where food eaten every day was still in Emperor sized helpings, especially in the form of smorgasbords and jumbo sized sandwiches. But then here are some reasons why heart disease statistics in these particular countries is comparatively low. First of all, they have a very healthy genetic background. Next, they believe in lots of exercise and do not bother much about sedentary lifestyles. These people are fit and fine because they cycle to work. On the other hand, many people were slowly and steadily developing heart diseases all over the world today do so because of bad diet. Also, a paucity of antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E in your diet, as well as an excess of cholesterol and triglycerides are definitely major contributing factors for possible heart disease.

Chapter 3 How to get started Chapter 4 The Cardinal Rules of Gun Safety Chapter 5 Parts of a Gun Chapter 6 Learning to Fire your Gun Chapter 7 Practical Shooting – the sport Chapter 8 When you are under attack Chapter 9 Additional Safety Precautions Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Did you know that since the beginning of time, women and children have always been the focus of violence, especially brutality at the hands of their fellow beings? The cases of crimes against women and children have been a part of social life for centuries, and that is why self-defense against such incidents have also been a part of training and upbringing in many parts of the world down the ages. Different items for self-defense have been used down the centuries, by different peoples, and also training to protect oneself from harm has also been the way of life. However, such warrior training was stopped in the 19th and 20th century in many parts of the West, because people were more concerned about training their children either for a profession or for taking care of a family. That is why these self-defense and body strengthening exercises slowly and steadily went out of a normal day to day’s activities. From the 16th century onward, the idea began to be promulgated, that it was the man’s job to protect the woman, and it was sinful for a woman to think of anything to protect herself, because she was doing something which was contrary to her nature. Well, these were the dark ages.

Potato Salad Potato Salad Dressing Traditional Mayonnaise Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Knowing what to cook was as important as knowing how to cook, for grandma. She also learned how to make the best of whatever was in front of her, from her grandmother, and so on for centuries. Millenniums ago, her ancestors when gathering in the woods for herbs and vegetables while the menfolk of the family trapped and hunted for meat, game and anything else edible and delicious. It was then grandma’s many times great-grandmother’s job to make all these ingredients into something delicious and healthy as well as palatable and nourishing. So she used her instinct and her creativity to make delicacies with the ingredients available at hand. Although science-fiction already has stories about scientists making complete little nutritional packages in the shape of pills that are going to take the shape of food in the coming centuries, we are very fortunate that we do not have to face that sort of blandness in our meals today. We still have the good fortune of going to the nearest market or the nearest organic garden and collecting fresh greens, as well as herbs. We have plenty of fresh meat at hand. And best of all, we have all the ingredients to make good wholesome food. We only hope, judging by the pleasure most of us get from eating, the preparation, cooking and serving of this nutritious food is going to be a human activity which is going to be around for a long time. But most of us cannot afford to have some of the more exotic ingredients, of which we dream. Either they are not available to us in our city. Or perhaps they are beyond our budget. Unfortunately, for a large percentage of people all over the world, budget constraints are the reason why they have to make do with makeshift meals instead of eating what nature intended for them – good wholesome, natural ingredients. Grandma was a frugal person. She lived in a time when the dollars earned by grandpa had to be stretched in such a manner that the whole family could be fed and fed well. Times changed and times of prosperity came along, and the eating habits of the whole family changed. Instead of two or three healthy meals in a day, there was food aplenty and the whole family could now afford to eat whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, and in large quantities. This naturally gave rise to problems including obesity. Also, by not regulating the meal intake as well as the quality of the meals, the quality of the general health of grandma’s children deteriorated as time went by. However, the circle of financial constraints has gone and come around again and the time for tightening belts and looking at our budgets has become the top priority. A majority of us all over the world again are looking for ways and means in which we can get the proper nutrition in the form of proteins, vitamins, minerals and energy, which our bodies required to keep functioning in a healthy manner.
