5 Healthiest Anti-Aging Snacks

"Snacking often gets a bad rap, but if you make intelligent choices about what you eat, you can actually benefit your health and longevity. Read on to find out how!" Why Snacks? Most of us are used to eating three times a day, but it is much healthier to eat smaller meals more frequently -five small meals a day, for instance. Eating in this way delivers a steady stream of nutrients, blood sugar, and energy to your body throughout the day and is also much less taxing on the digestive and metabolic systems. And when you eat more small meals throughout the day, you will most likely avoid the pitfalls of overindulging at your next meal and may actually consume fewer total calories for the day. Keep healthy "grab-and-go" snacks on hand all the time to avoid the tempting lure of high-calorie snacks. Here are my top five snack choices: 1. Nuts and Seeds Keep You Young Healthy and appetizing, nuts and seeds are absolutely the best snack of the bunch. Helping yourself to a

The 6 Most Terrifying Foods in the World

Article By Tim Cameron #6. Escamoles From: Mexico. What the hell is it? Escamoles are the eggs of the giant black Liometopum ant, which makes its home in the root systems of maguey and agave plants. Collecting the eggs is a uniquely unpleasant job, since the ants are highly venomous and have some kind of blood grudge against human orifices. The eggs have the consistency of cottage cheese. The most popular way to eat them is in a taco with guacamole, while being f****** insane. Wait, it gets worse ... Escamoles have a surprisingly pleasant taste: buttery and slightly nutty. This hugely increases the chances that, while in Mexico, you could eat them without realizing you are eating a taco full of f*****g ant eggs. #5. Casu Marzu From: Sardinia, Italy. What the hell is it? This, dear reader, is a medium-sized lump of Sweet F****** Cow. Casu Marzu is a sheep' milk cheese that has been deliberately infested by a Piophila casei, the "cheese fly." The result is a maggot-ridden,

Top 10 Worst Junk Foods

Top 10 Worst Junk Foods By Gunn Sikk I'm here to tell you about reality and fantasy. Reality is not all foods are created equal, in fact, a lot of them are junk. The fantasy is, if you think by eating a lot of junk foods you're going to remain healthy, you're mistaken. That's why I've created the top 10 list of worst junk foods people commonly eat. 10. Fruit drinks. Not to be confused with fruit juices, fruit drinks are 10 per cent or less real fruit sugar. They're loaded with artificial colouring and sucrose. Definitely teeth rotters. 9. White bread. Yes, this is a junk food. Everytime you're looking at a slice of white bread you are seeing a slice of sugar-it acts in the body the same way. 8. Doughnut. It's white bread dipped and deep-fried and sugar. What can be worse? No wonder there's a big hole in the middle, it's a nutritional zero. 7. Decaffeinated coffee. An excellent way to remove the caffeine and add chemical solvent residue right into

Watermelon may offer Viagra-like effects

A slice of cool, fresh watermelon is a juicy way to top off a Fourth of July cookout and one that researchers say has effects similar to Viagra — but don't necessarily expect it to keep the fireworks all night long. Watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra, said scientists in Texas, one of the nation's top producers of the seedless variety. Found in the flesh and rind of watermelons, citrulline reacts with the body's enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine, an amino acid that benefits the heart and the circulatory and immune systems. Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it. Watermelon may not be as organ-specific as Viagra, but it's a great way to relax blood vessels without any dru

The "Don't after a Meal"

Don't smoke Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher). Don't eat fruits immediately Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal. Don't drink tea Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest. Don't loosen your belt Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked. Don't bathe Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach. Don't walk about People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true

Top 10 Bizarre Sleep Disorders

10. Rapid eye movement behavior disorder In this disorder, a person loses paralysis which is normal for the Rapid Eye Movement period, causing their body to freely act out their dreams. These behaviours can be violent in nature and in some cases will result in injury to either the patient or their bed partner. RBD is a treatable condition. The standard therapy is the anti-convulsant drug clonazepam, and this is generally received very well.

Top 10 Kids Movies That Adults Will Love

10) Wall-E The first of several Pixar films on this list. This is an amazing film with themes that soar over the heads of little ones. It’s almost Chaplinesque in style, and has already been compared to Chaplin’s classic “Modern Times.” Extremely intelligent, funny, touching and with a message that is worth heeding. Great music too. What other kid’s movie would feature Louis Armstrong’s version of Le Vie En Rose? 9) Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit Absolutely sublime and hilarious. This smart Brit stop-motion feature stars the great clay duo made famous in several shorts, and adds a crew of memorable characters. The transformation scene itself is worth the price of admission. And look for the funny little winks throughout like a jar of “Middle-Aged Spread” or the cleverly place box with the label “May contain nuts.” Bang, zoom, right over kids heads and into the laps of adults. 8) The Iron Giant This little seen gem was written and directed by Brad Bird, the genius who la
