BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY.

That’s why they called it breaking your fast.
After following 4.052 men and women who ate little or no breakfast or only had a cup of coffee or juice for their morning meal. researchers found that these people are twice as likely to develop clogged arteries which leads to heart disease. All subjects were middle aged men and women.
These people were also more prone to be overweight, smoke and have high blood pressure.
My advise is when you wake up in the morning, say to yourself I am going to break my fast with a good breakfast of at lease 15 Grams (1/2 ounce ) of protein.

PREVENT HEART DISEASE WITH CURCUMIN

Curcumin is the active ingredient in the spice turmeric.
Human clinical studies have shown that curcumin can reduce chronic inflammation induced by obesity and metabolic syndrome.
The mechanism of action is to reduce the impact of high glucose, normalizing blood fat profiles and boosting arterial structure and function.
Curcumin has long been prized for its anti-inflammatory and cancer prevention. Now we know it prevents heart disease.
I take a supplement of Curcumin daily.

PEOPLE WITH A POOR SENSE OF SMELL, MORE LIKELY TO DEVELOP DEMENTIA

Researchers at the University of Chicago tested 2,906 men and women between the ages of 57 and 85 if they could detect scents such as peppermint, fish, orange, rose and leather. 22% of the participants could not detect four out of five scents.
Five years later the researchers found that the ones who could not detect at least four scents, were more than twice as likely to have dementia. The worse the performance on the smell test the higher the risk.
My advise is that if you are having a problem with differentiating different scents or having a problem with your ability to smell things, which by the way will interfere with your appetite for certain foods, check with an ENT physician.
