AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. 2.

Desert Driving

I was staring at some pictures saved in my computer today. I suddenly realized that it has been 364 days since we had our first desert safari on our own along with some of my husbands coworkers. It was his first time to drive in the desert, I was nervous but was feeling so excited about the trip. We headed to the desert early in the morning of January 23, 2009, the air was cold and the sky was clear, it's the best time of the year in UAE for outdoor activities like this. Meeting place-FEDEX Head Office-Airport Terminal 2-madilim pa ng magkitakita kami, we wanted to be there early On our way...

Education is the key to eradicate Poverty. Takbo para sa libreng edukasyon. A man in his late forties was walking along the street of a local province carrying a wooden woven basket filled with different types of desserts. He is literally moving from one house to another to sell what’s in his basket and tries to finish it before noon time as the sun gets too hot by then. He will shout at the top of his lungs so people will hear him coming. He does this every single day. The man is a friendly and cheerful person by nature and everyone knows and likes him.

During his young age, he started working in order to help his parents support the family of twelve, he is the third child. He did not even finish elementary as he is forced to work. There was not enough money to send him to school too. He is smart and even he d

Lye Water

Pichi Pichi is another traditional Filipino dessert, it is made of grated cassava, flour water and sugar, in some recipes that I have found over the internet, it says to use lihiya (lye water). I wonder what lye water was and so I check it @ Wikipedia Do you know that lye water is actually poinsonous ? Yes, if not use properly, and it must be used in controlled and small quantity. Read below as it is important that we know what we are adding to our food specially when we are serving it to our love ones. Lye is a corrosive alkaline substance, commonly sodium hydroxide ( Na OH , also known as 'caustic soda') or historically potassium hydroxide ( K OH , from hydrated potash ). Previously, lye was among the many different alkalis leached from hardwood ashes. [1] Now, lye is commercially manufactured using a membrane cell method. Solid dry lye is commonly available as flakes, pellets, microbeads, and coarse powder. It is also available as solution, often dissolved in
