Velhice não tem de rimar com doença

Hoje fui ao supermercado. Como estavam muitas lojas fechadas tive de ir a um na Rua de Sant'Ana à Lapa.
Quando estava na bicha para pagar as hortaliças comecei a reparar nas caras das outras pessoas. Entretive-me a fazer-lhes diagnóstico. A ver o que estavam a comprar relacionando-o com os distúrbios diagnosticados. Iogurtes, comida light, leite, fiambre, fruta, coisas consideradas saudáveis. Que desinformação!
Muitos velhinhos bem vestidos. Muitas mulheres com muito bom aspecto. Mas o olhar, e consequentemente o sistema nervoso, embaciado pelos efeitos iatrogénicos de medicações.
A medicação quase de certeza lhes fez pior que a doença!
Exaspera-me que as pessoas aceitem rimar doença com idade. Podemos viver e morrer saudáveis!
Pode-se morrer sem ser de doença. Morre-se apenas porque chegou a nossa hora de ir desta para melhor.
Pode-se viver sempre saudável, bem e até muito mais tarde do que em geral se pensa.
Também me exaspera ver as doenças a avançarem enquanto as pessoas as pioram, com medicações que só disfarçam os sintomas, porque cheias de efeitos secundários, enquanto desperdiçam vitalidade e tempo precioso em exames de utilidade extremamente discutível.
E ainda confundem estes exames com tratamento. :-0
Exames... na maioria ainda pioram a doença e são só uma forma de delegar as responsabilidades pela não-cura que têm para oferecer.

People who eat too much white bread have larger waistlines than their friends who eat whole grains instead, according to a new study from Tufts University in Boston.
That plushy white bread goes straight to your gut and then hangs out as belly fat, reports The Associated Press. In fact, white bread is a larger contributor to a bulging waistline than alcohol, sweets, or meat and potatoes.
"Waist circumference was very much associated with this high-refined-grains pattern," lead study author Katherine Tucker, an associate professor of nutritional epidemiology at Tufts, told AP.

Your Weight and the Big 3: Calories,
Tucker's team examined 459 healthy, middle-age people in Baltimore, Maryland who had a variety of eating habits. Specifically, they examined five different diets where one type of food was prominent: healthy food, white bread, alcohol, sweets, or meat and potatoes. And the people who ate the most white bread were also the fattest.
The Tufts researchers found that calories from refined grains settle at the waistline, which translates into a half-inch a year for people who just had to have their white bread. At the end of the study, those who indulged in white bread had three times the gain in the gut as did their peers who ate whole grains.
This is serious stuff. People who have bigger waists have a higher risk of heart disease than those who weigh the same but don't carry the extra weight around the belly.

The study findings were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Hi, my name is Kenny Williams and I have suffered from severe acne. In fact, I also had problems with hair loss and weight loss and I lost all self confidence at some point and all my friends too. Now, a few months later, after discovering the Health Reviews website, I feel much much better. After reading their success stories and recommendations, their Top Health Reviews really helped me. Do you realize how good can this be? NO more problems. Finally I can got back my smile. That is the reason I am so happy now!
