Overcooking foods

Cooking foods for all but brief periods of time can destroy many valuable nutrients. More alarming is that when foods are cooked to the point of browning or charring, the organic compounds they contain undergo changes in structure, producing carcinogens.

So I was wondering which is worse for health a well-done or just a medium-well cooked steak? Unfortunately, barbecued meats see m to pose the worst health threat in this regard. When burring fat drips onto an open flame, there will be a formation of a dangerous carcinogenic compound called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). When amino acids and other chemicals found in muscle are exposed to high temperatures, other carcinogens, called heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAAs) are created. Please note that not only meat pose that risk. Even browned or burned bread crusts contain a variety of carcinogenic substances.

So we can reduce the risk of cancer by simply light cooking our foods.

Crossfit Community

One of the things I really admire in crossfit is crossfit community. Kevin Ogar, 28 years old, one of the crossfitters was seriously injured in local competition in California and he had dissection in his lower spine which resulted in paralysis of his lower limbs after a freak snap weight lifting. Yeah most of crossfitters I know go super-freaks if they have competition. He had no medical insurance to cover his operation fees according to Alwhaibi so he could not afford it. So crossfitters around the world were training and raising money to cover his operation. That is just amazing and inspiring! If I got hurt, nobody will give any shit about me. So anyways non crossfitters community like me supporting you Ogar as well. Stay strong and recover quickly!

As far as I know, the only hospital do this procedure in Kuwait is Al Farwaniya hospital and we just injected one case. So, basically we have referrals from rheumatologists who failed managing patients conservatively. Patients are having inflammatory joint disease most commonly from rheumatoid arthritis or to the lesser extent other inflammatory joint diseases e.g. Lyme disease, Behcet´s disease and spondylarthropathy (e.g. reactive or psoriatic arthritis).. etc. Patient  are complaining of limitation of movement, swelling and painful joint. Multiple aspirations is not helping. The pathophysiology behind it is inflamed and swollen synovium. So our rule is to give high radiation Beta emitters radioisotopes like Yttrium-90 as in today's case. Those radiations are working amazingly in destroying the inflamed synovium with good outcome in terms of relieving patients symptoms. That was today's thought, Have a good day guys.

What would you do if?

You are arrested in the third world for no good reason. You thought you were obeying the rules out there. But you didn't do little more research about what was legal and what wasn't before you traveled to third world destination. You might have found out that many of these shit holes share one law in common: A law that makes it illegal to look like you have money! I have read funny survival tips in that situation. I'll put them here just for the sake of fun.
Step1: get used to eating rodents and insects because they'll be running around everywhere. and they taste better and more nutritious than the shit they feed you. Step2: Convert! yes start believing whatever religion they believe in. Everyone loves a convict that turned to God, as long as it's their God. Step3: Try to avoid drinking water! Until it dries up, Okay there is an alternative way I don't want to mention it here. Step4: Don't get @#*ed, you don't want to get @#*ed in the ass by a prisoner. Sure, it may hurt less in Bangkok than in Pelican Bay, but the chances of getting AIDS are moderately higher. Step 5: Bribe! The good thing about corrupt system is that it's corrupt. They may put you away for twenty years for stealing a pack of gum, but they also might take $50 to let you go on homicide charge. Pay up and get out! After all, I think these steps are going to fail. You are in real trouble.
