I know, I know. Ho Hum!
This is more of a trivia thing than any earth-moving news flash, but it is interesting and I want to share it with you,
The BEST FOOD- According to the famous and very popular Dr.OZ, of TV fame, the absolutely best food for everyone to eat is BROCCOLI. According to the article, Broccoli had indoles.
Indoles are a class of plant based compound called phytonutrients. Eating Broccoli aids in cleansing the Liver, and is so low in fats and high in fiber that so we should all be eating more Broccoli.
The WORST FOOD- And, of course, the worst culprit in our diets that should be eliminated, totally, is; FRENCH FRIES. Their only redeeming value is that they taste SO GOOD!. But, we should stop eating these greasy, tasty fat generators immediately.
SO, Eat more Broccoli and less French fries and you are taking at least a small step towards improving your health.
OK, I just read an article that includes a list from the FBI on the Top-5 Most Dangerous cities in the US.
And the winners are;
1- Flint, Michigan
2- Detroit, Michigan
3- St.Louis, Missouri
4- New Haven Connecticut
5- Memphis, Tennessee
Across the board their inclusion on this FBI list is generally attributed to; Gang Activity, High Unemployment, Low Family Income and more. DUH!
So, 1-We know What! 2-We know Why! But, we refuse to do anything about it!
Do we blame a political party or ourselves?
The Republican National Convention is to be held in Tampa Florida, shortly, and the article that I read in the local paper included these interesting numbers for us all to consider.
1- The Federal Government (that means us!) is paying $50-MILLION dollars for Convention Security.
Now that's a lot of money, but even worse, you must remember that each party will receive the exact same amount of moneys from the Federal government for the security of all of those drunken privileged few that get to attend these conventions.
