Woman detained at passport control because no one believes how old she is

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

NATALIADZENKIV/INSTAGRAM 

Delays at passport control are normally irritating.

But it might not feel as insulting if the stoppage was thanks to you looking too damn good to even be legal.

That’s what happened to Ukrainian singer Natalia Dzenkiv, a 41-year-old who has surely topped the pride over-25s feel when they’re asked for their ID in the off licence.

At passport control, border guards allegedly did not believe she was 41, because she looked ‘too young’.

Perhaps you can see why her age was in doubt.

Natalia says that airport staff believed she was in her 20s.

She told Lad Bible:

When I found out the reason for my arrest, I even started laughing as it was the age in my passport.

I am already used to compliments about the way I look, but I couldn’t have imagined that it might be a reason for detaining me.

If you need another reason to be jealous, know that Natalia was only allowed through passport control once her fame came into play.

According to Natalia several passers-by recognised her from her band Lama, and asked for her autograph.

THESE ARE SOME 21 HEALTH FRAUDS TO KEEP AN EYE OPEN FOR

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

21 Total Health Frauds You Need To Know About…

WARRANTY SEALED ENVELOPE RED WHITE IMAGE www.newcures.info

There are many health remedies and empty promises out there which simply do not work. Not only are some people being tricked, but some are even harmed. Here are 21 health frauds you need to know about…

*******************************************************************************

1. Identity Theft

id_theft_card image www.newcures.info

In this case, medical identity theft is a real issue. This is when a person’s identity has been misused in order to pay for services, bills, medications, or whatever else they desire. This is not only happening to patients, as doctors are also being targeted. The identity of doctors are stolen, then used to write fake prescriptions.

*******************************************************************************

2. Miracle Cures

miracledrug_image www.newcures.info

If anything claims to be a ‘miracle cure,’ then it’s probably too good to be true. Companies will often use claims such as ‘secret ingredient’ or ‘new scientific discovery.’ The truth is, if these claims were true, treating a well-known condition, it would be all over the media. Don’t fall for miracle cure scams. Know what you’re buying first.

*******************************************************************************

3. Quick Fixes

Once again, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. Very few conditions can be treated rapidly, even with the latest, most legitimate products and medications. If anyone makes claims like, ‘cure your lung cancer in days’ or ‘lose 40 pounds in a month,’ then you should be VERY cautious.

*******************************************************************************

4. Anti-Aging

anti-aging-womans face image www.newcures.info

We value a younger looking culture, which is why people strive to looker younger each and every day. There are so many pills on the market, which haven’t been proven to reduce the signs of aging. There are also creams, therapies, and all kinds of false claims. You’re better off eating right, exercising, and minimizing stress.

*******************************************************************************

5. Arthritis Remedies

taking fish oil tablets in hand image www.newcures.info

This is a large area of concern, as SO many people are affected by arthritis. If you see claims that magnets, chemicals, radiation, magic pills, or any other form of treatment will cure your arthritis, it’s unlikely that it actually will. Once again, rest, exercises, heat and diet are your best bet when it comes to reducing symptoms.

*******************************************************************************

6. Cancer Cures

prison-doctor-image www.newcures.info

It’s sad that people take advantage of others during their most desperate times, but it happens. Scam artists most certainly prey on cancer patients, because they’ll do anything to improve their condition. There isn’t a treatment that can cure all cancer types, it simply doesn’t exist yet. Don’t waste your time with UNPROVEN treatments, as this is precious time wasted.

*******************************************************************************

7. False Memory Aids

Brain-Memory-image www.newcures.info

Smart pills will not improve your memory, which are often marketed as miracle pills for dementia or Alzheimer’s. There isn’t a cure for these conditions, so please be aware. You need to keep your mind stimulated and provide it with nutrients. If you are suffering from issues with your memory, create a treatment plan with your doctor, do not buy pills off of the Internet.

*******************************************************************************

8. Dietary Supplements

pills & Supplements-image www.newcures.info

There are most certainly some great supplements out there, but there are also a lot of fraudulent products as well. Since the Federal Government does not consider supplements to be medicine they’re not regulated as tightly. Many supplements are not properly tested, which could cause you more harm than good.

*******************************************************************************

9. Health Insurance Scams

health insurance doc image www.newcures.info

Careful when purchasing health insurance, as the fine print may suggest something else. Many insurance companies will make claims, but than fail to deliver. If you do buy insurance, ALWAYS make sure that the company is licensed within your state.

*******************************************************************************

10. Counterfeit Prescription Drugs

dangerous_online_drug_pharmacies_counterfeit_medication image www.newcures.info

Some companies are selling fraudulent medications online. Many seniors are looking for cheaper options, which these companies provide. This is dangerous, because they don’t know what’s in the medication and it may make their condition worse. People often lose their money and are no better off in terms of their medical condition.

*******************************************************************************

11. Fraudulent Diabetes Supplements

B_vitamin_supplement_tablets-500x399 image www.newcures.info

There are many diabetes supplements which make exciting claims, yet put consumers in harms way. These supplements can result in injury or even death. There are some great supplements out there, so just make sure you do your research. Read ALL the claims and see if anything seems like it’s conflicting. Also, ask you doctor to look at the ingredient list and claims, so that you know you’re not putting yourself at-risk.

*******************************************************************************

12. Tainted Sexual Enhancement Drugs

white pills in bulk image www.newcures.info

There are many products that are now being offered, which include dangerous ingredients. Some include prescription drugs (which are unrelated to the condition the consumer is trying to treat), hidden active ingredients, illegal drugs and more. This is becoming increasingly popular in sexual enhancement drugs, so please be cautious before you purchase any enhancement drugs

*******************************************************************************

13. Weight Loss and Sibutramine

feet on scales image www.newcures.info

The FDA has found multiple weight-loss supplements which contain the prescription drug known as sibutramine. This drug has already been removed from the FDA-approved list, as it was causing heart complications and strokes. Nothing beats a healthy diet and exercise, when trying to lose weight.

*******************************************************************************

14. Bodybuilding Supplements

supplements_mass-500x277 image www.newcures.info

Not all supplements are created equal, so do not waste your money or time! In some cases, it’s not just your wallet you need to worry about. Many men’s supplements are packed with soy, causing their pecks to fill with fatty tissue. Instead of building muscle, men have been developing breasts. There are also many dangerous additives being used, so be aware of what you’re taking

*******************************************************************************

15. 7-Day Miracle Cleanse

fraud alert-signs 464641_640-500x353 image www.newcures.info

There were claims that a 7-day miracle cleanse could treat AIDs, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and more. This was developed by Paris DeAguero, who claimed that this cleanse cured his cancer, marketing his product on infomercials. These claims were obviously false, but you see how quickly people can be impacted.

*******************************************************************************

16. Chelation Therapy For Autism

Autism-sign-00x-500x202 image www.newcures.info

We still do not understand everything there is to know about autism. This was a claim made, so that parents could remove mercury from their autistic children’s bodies. This is due to the fact that mercury-based preservatives were used in autistic medications until 2001. This therapy is not only fraudulent, but dangerous. It does NOT cure autism.

*******************************************************************************

17. Ozone Therapy

woman undergoing health theraphy image www.newcures.info

This therapy involves infused blood, drinking water with triatomic oxygen, or body cavities, in order to kill microbes. This therapy claims to kill arthritis, cancer and HIV microbes. Ground-level ozone is considered a pollutant, and should NOT be administered to your body.

*******************************************************************************

18. Malariotherapy

malaria mosquito bites flesh image www.newcures.info

This was a pre-antibiotic treatment for syphilis, developed by Dr. Henry Heimlich. He also advocates that the malaria infection, can help cure other diseases. He began to claim that this therapy could cure AIDS, even though these patients have poor immune systems.

*******************************************************************************

19. Cancell…?

pink-ribbon_in_hands_image_3054334b-500x312

This treatment targets cancer patients, as the company Nu-gen Nutrition Inc was sued by the FTC based on false claims. Offered in the form of an electrolyte drink, this product claims to cure cancer

*******************************************************************************

20. All-Natural Processed Foods

???????????????????????????????

The food industry also uses health in order to market their products. If a product which has been processed says ‘all-natural’ does not mean that it’s a healthy choice. If something was all-natural, it should be grown out of the ground and eaten just as natural intended. The FDA has not yet defined all natural, so companies are using this to their advantage. Many of these products are packed with preservatives and use low quality ingredients.

*******************************************************************************

21. Zero Trans Fats

trans_fat_chart-image www.newcures.info 500x333

Once again, know what you’re buying. You need to read labels and ingredient lists, so that you are not fooled into making poor health choices. Companies have some wiggle room when it comes to trans fats. These are of course the unhealthiest fats, directly threatening your heart health. Products can have up to 0.5% trans fats, yet still be marketed as zero. Look for hydrogenated ingredients, so that you can protect your health and cholesterol.

Drink THIS First Thing in the Morning to reduce signs of aging & recharge your batteries

This daily trick can help you detoxify, improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels

warm-lemon drink image www.newcures.info
You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.

All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels.

If I could tell you ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?

Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!

Here’s the trick…

Immediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an 8 oz glass of warm or room temperature purified water.  This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water.  I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves.

Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.

Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink, and not bottled lemon juice.  You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.
3 Major benefits of this morning drink to your body, health, and energy:

According to a leading health publication, TheAlternativeDaily.com:

“The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser. 

Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood.  Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints.

This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

Benefits that you can enjoy:

1. Improves your digestion:

Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion.
2. Boosts your energy for the day:

Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels, and reduce anxiety.  Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.
3. Helps you to lose fat:

Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance… Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily morning routine!

DRINK COFFEE & LIVE LONGER – STUDY FINDS

Coffee Drinkers Have Slightly Lower

Death Rates, Study Finds

Science (June 17, 2008) — A new study has good news for coffee drinkers: Regular coffee drinking (up to 6 cups per day) is not associated with increased deaths in either men or women. In fact, both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee consumption is associated with a somewhat smaller rate of death from heart disease.


“Coffee consumption has been linked to various beneficial and detrimental health effects, but data on its relation with death were lacking,” says Esther Lopez-Garcia, PhD, the study’s lead author. “Coffee consumption was not associated with a higher risk of mortality in middle-aged men and women. The possibility of a modest benefit of coffee consumption on heart disease, cancer, and other causes of death needs to be further investigated.”

Women consuming two to three cups of caffeinated coffee per day had a 25 percent lower risk of death from heart disease during the follow-up period (which lasted from 1980 to 2004 and involved 84,214 women) as compared with non-consumers, and an 18 percent lower risk of death caused by something other than cancer or heart disease as compared with non-consumers during follow-up. For men, this level of consumption was associated with neither a higher nor a lower risk of death during the follow-up period (which lasted from 1986 to 2004 and involved 41,736 men).

The researchers analyzed data of 84,214 women who had participated in the Nurses’ Health Study and 41,736 men who had participated in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. To be in the current study, participants had to have been free of cancer and heart disease at the start of those larger studies.

The study participants completed questionnaires every two to four years that included questions about how frequently they drank coffee, other diet habits, smoking, and health conditions. The researchers then compared the frequency of death from any cause, death due to heart disease, and death due to cancer among people with different coffee-drinking habits.

Among women, 2,368 deaths were due to heart disease, 5,011 were due to cancer, and 3,716 were due to another cause. Among men, 2,049 deaths were due to heart disease, 2,491 were due to cancer, and 2,348 were due to another cause.

While accounting for other risk factors, such as body size, smoking, diet, and specific diseases, the researchers found that people who drank more coffee were less likely to die during the follow-up period. This was mainly because of lower risk for heart disease deaths among coffee drinkers.

The researchers found no association between coffee drinking and cancer deaths. These relationships did not seem to be related to caffeine because people who drank decaffeinated coffee also had lower death rates than people who did not drink coffee.

The editors of Annals of Internal Medicine caution that the design of the study does not make it certain that coffee decreases the chances of dying sooner than expected. Something else about coffee drinkers might be protecting them. And some measurement error in the assessment of coffee consumption is inevitable because estimated consumption came from self-reports.

This study was supported by National Institutes of Health research grants.

PARSLEY FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE & MORE

Monday, January 4th, 2010

PARSLEY – Medicinal Uses


  • Tea may be used as an enema. Chinese and German herbologists recommend parsley tea to help control high blood pressure, and the Cherokees used it as a tonic to strengthen the bladder. It is also often used as an emmenagogue.
  • Parsley also appears to increase diuresis by inhibiting the Na+/K+-ATPase pump in the kidney, thereby enhancing sodium and water excretion while increasing potassium reabsorption. It is also valued as an aquaretic.
  • When crushed and rubbed on the skin, parsley can reduce itching in mosquito bites.
  • When chewed, parsley can freshen bad breath.

Health risks

  • Parsley should not be consumed as a drug or supplement by pregnant women. Parsley as an oil, root, leaf, or seed could lead to uterine stimulation and preterm labor
  • Parsley is high (1.70% by mass,  in oxalic acid, a compound involved in the formation of kidney stones and nutrient deficiencies.
  • Parsley oil contains furanocoumarins and psoralens which leads to extreme photosensitivity if used orally.
  • Parsley seeds contain a high level of oil and are a diuretic.

Pets could be called ‘wonder drugs’

448594752othekl_th

COLUMBIA, Mo. (UPI) — Pets lower hypertension, spur exercise and improve psychological health, and if this appeared in pill form it would be called a wonder drug, a U.S. expert says.

“Research in this field is providing new evidence on the positive impact pets have in our lives,” Rebecca Johnson, an associate professor in the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing, the College of Veterinary Medicine and director of the Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction, says in a statement.

Johnson says the International Society for Anthrozoology and Human-Animal Interaction Conference in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 20-25 will include conference discussions on ways that human-animal interaction benefits humans and animals.

“Pets are of great importance to people, especially during hard economic times,” Johnson says. “Pets provide unconditional love and acceptance and may be part of answers to societal problems, such as inactivity and obesity.”

ReCHAI sponsored the Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound and Stay Fit for Seniors program that matched older adults with shelter dogs, while another group of older adults walked with humans. For 12 weeks, participants were encouraged to walk on an outdoor trail for one hour, five times a week.

“The older people who walked their dogs improved their walking capabilities by 28 percent,” Johnson says. “They had more confidence walking on the trail, and they increased their speed. Those who walked with humans had a 4 percent increase in their walking capabilities.”
