What is BPA, and what are the concerns about BPA?

February 6, 2016

Incredible facts about BPA

 

BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s.

BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods.

Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Some dental sealants and composites also may contain BPA.

Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.

However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said that BPA is safe at the very low levels that occur in some foods. This assessment is based on review of hundreds of studies.

The FDA is continuing its review of BPA, including supporting ongoing research. In the meantime, if you’re concerned about BPA, you can take these steps to reduce your exposure:

  • Seek out BPA-free products. More and more BPA-free products have come to market. Look for products labeled as BPA-free. If a product isn’t labeled, keep in mind that some, but not all, plastics marked with recycle codes 3 or 7 may be made with BPA.
  • Cut back on cans. Reduce your use of canned foods since most cans are lined with BPA-containing resin.
  • Avoid heat. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, advises against microwaving polycarbonate plastics or putting them in the dishwasher, because the plastic may break down over time and allow BPA to leach into foods.
  • Use alternatives. Use glass, porcelain or stainless steel containers for hot foods and liquids instead of plastic containers.

How do you value life?

If you only want to have kids just to be called mom and dad, welcome to parent’s failure. You need to raise them well educated and with good manners. Which take a lot of caring time, effort and patience. not just to rely on somebody to do you the job. As a teacher, I’ve seen a lot of examples who failed to be parents, neglecting their kids, thinking that buying them expensive stuff or having a nanny would replace their roles as parents in their lives. I also have seen a lot of busy parents who spend more than 14 hours outside the house for work- which is a reasonable purpose for not spending time with their children – but when they get back home and actually start spending time…they don’t spend time, they spend money. What are you raising your child for? Valuing time or money and expensive things? Not because you have to work and afford living you get back to your children and buying them things, shopping should be a part of life, not life! Please be careful about these points, teach your children to be creative and value time, stop pampering for no reason, stop letting them watch T.V instead of reading a book or doing a hobby.

اسمهان – ليالي الأنس

January 29, 2016

ليالي الأنس في فيينا نسيمها من هوا الجنّة
نغم في الجوّ له رنّة سمعها الطير بكى وغنّى

ما بين رنين الكاس ورنّة الألحان
أدي القوام ميّاس تعاطف الأغصان
 
تمّ النعيم للروح والعين ما تخلّي قلبك يتهنّى
آدي الحبايب عالجنبين إيهِ اللي فاضل ع الجنّة
 
متّع شبابك في فيينا دي فيينا روضة من الجنّة
نغم في الجوّ له رنّة سمعها الطير بكى وغنّى
 
ساعة هنا لو تفضالك تنسى معاها الكون كلّه
إيه اللي رايح يبقالك من النعيم ده غير ظلّه
خيال ساري مع الأوهام وطيف جاري مع الأحلام
وليه تصبر على الأيام تفوت من غير ما تتكلّم
 
دي ليلة الأنس في فيينا نسيمها من هوا الجنّة
نغم في الجوّ له رنّة سمعها الطير بكى وغنّى
 
امرح واطرب
افرح واشرب
ابعث قلبك يسبح ويطير
في الدنيا ديي يلقي له سمير

تهنا بقربه، وتسعد بهواه
واتهنّي شبابك والقلب معاه
دي فيينا روضة من الجنة يسعد لياليكي يا فيينا
نغم في الجوّ له رنّة سمع لها الطير بكى وغنّى

Changing coaches?

January 24, 2016

I always loved Shaun T, now my home coach is a female…I got used to males. But I find myself more pushed or attracted to her instructions. Julie Voris is good too. I found this amazing blog : SoreyFitness talking about my current workout routine. It explains it all. I liked that we have yoga, what I don’t like that she doesn’t teach you the poses names, unlike Shaun T he always teaches you them. In General, I like her.

Today I did lower body workout and Yoga bec. I didn’t train yesterday…I was too exhausted, here is what I did:

Total workout time ith breaks : 80min

Actual time without breaks and pauses: 52.35min

In Zone:16.55

Calories burnt from workout:639

Total Calories burnt in all during the workout and breaks:1014.35

هيا نرهبك بأسم الدين

ينجبوك ويتحكمون فيك بحجة انهم أربابك, ثم يرهبوك بأسم الدين وكأن الله وحش ترتعب له! إذاً أين هي المحبة؟ يستغلون جهلك ويسجنوك في سجونهم العظيمة..

كيف لك ان تجرؤ على التفكير؟ على الخروج عن المعروف؟ وإن تجرأت..يتهمونك في شرفك وفي إيمانك وفي صحة قواك العقلية! فيــــــالك من احمقاً كافراً! من هو الأحمق؟ وهل أعطاني ربي عقلي لكي افكر وأدبر أم لأصغى لخرفاتكم؟ فتباً لكم جميعاً!!!
