Different parts of our body ages at different times

WE all  accept that getting older is inevitable, and now leading clinicians have revealed the exact age when different body parts start to decline, most alarming being the brain and lungs.
  
Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein tells the Daily Mail the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.
  
BRAIN -  Starts ageing at 20
As we get older, the number of nerve  cells - or neurons - in the brain d! ecrease. We start with around 100  billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline. By 40, we could  be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting  memory, co-ordination and brain function.

GUT -  Starts ageing at 55.
A healthy gut has a good balance betwee harmful  and 'friendly' bacteria. But levels of friendly bacteria in the gut drop significantly after 55, particularly in the large intestine, says Tom  MacDonald, professor of immunology at Barts And The London medical  school. As a result, we suffer from poor digestion and an increased risk  of gut disease. Constipation is more likely as we age, as the flow  of digestive  juices from the stomach, liver, pancreas and small intestine slows  down.
  

LUNGS -  Start ageing at 20
Lung capacity slowly starts to  decrease from th! e  age of 20. By the age of 40, some people are already experiencing breathlessness. This is partly because the muscles and the rib cage which  control breathing  stiffen up.

VOICE -  Starts ageing at 65
Our voices become quieter and hoarser with age. The  soft tissues in the voice box (larynx) weaken, affecting the pitch, loudness and quality of the voice. A woman's voice may become huskier  and lower in pitch,  whereas a man's might become thinner and higher.
   
EYES  -  Start ageing at 40
Glasses are the norm for many over-40s as  failing eyesight kicks in - usually long-sightedness, affecting our  ability to see objects up close.
  
HEART  - Starts ageing at  40
The heart pumps blood less  effectively
around the  body as we get older. This is because blood vessels become less elastic,  while arteries can harden or become blocked because of fatty deposits  forming on the  coronary arteries - caused by eating too much saturated fat. The blood  supply to the heart is then reduced, resulting in painful angina. Men  over 45 and women over 55 are  at greater risk of a heart attack.  

LIVER -  Starts ageing at 70
This is the only organ in the body  which seems to defy  the aging process.
   
KIDNEYS -  Sta! rts ageing at 50
With kidneys, the number of  filtering units  (nephrons) that remove waste from the bloodstream starts to reduce in  middle age.
  
BONES  - Start ageing at 35
'Throughout our life, old bone  is broken down  by cells called osteoclasts and replaced by bone-building cells called osteoblasts - a process called bone turnover,' explains Robert Moots,  professor of  rheumatology at Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool . Children's  bone growth is rapid - the skeleton takes just two years to  renew itself completely. In adults, this can take  ten years. Until our mid-20s, bone density is still increasing. But at  35 bone loss begins as part of the natural ageing process.
   
TEETH  - Start ageing at 40
As we age, we produce less  saliva, which washes  away bacteria, so teeth and gums are more vulnerable to decay. Receding  gums - when tissue is lost from gums around the teeth - is common  in adults over  40.

MUSCLES  - Start ageing  at 30
Muscle is constantly being built up and broken down,  a process which is well balanced in young adults. However, by the time we're 30, breakdown is greater than buildup, explains Professor Robert  Moots. Once  adults reach 40,  they start to lose between 0.5 and 2 per cent of their muscle each year.  Regular exercise can help prevent  this.
  
HEARING -  Starts ageing mid-50s
More than half of people over 60 lose  hearing because of their age, according to the Royal National  Institute for the Deaf.
  
SKIN - Starts ageing mid-20s
The skin  starts to age naturally in your  mid-20s.
  
TASTE  AND SMELL -  Start ageing at 60
We start out in life with about 10,000  taste buds  scattered on the tongue. This number can halve later  in life. After we turn 60, taste and smell gradually decline, partly as  a result of the normal ageing process.
  
HAIR -  Starts ageing at 30
Male hair loss usually begins in the 30s. Hair is  made in tiny pouches  just under the skin's surface, known as follices. A hair normally grows  from each follicle for about three years, is then shed, and a new hair  grows.  Most people  will have s! ome grey hair by the age of 35. When we are young, our hair  is coloure d by the pigments produced by cells in the hair follicle known as melanocytes.

AngMo Durian

AngMo Durian - Natural Cancer KILLER - 10,000 times stronger than Chemo and more..... AngMo durian most of us ignored and disliked. Time to plant some at home, if you've the garden. One of America 's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds--have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties--and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.


But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended.


The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree--it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it.


It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits--or even make back the millions it poured into research.


As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!


Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.
 

Miracle unleashed


When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up--came in fast and furious...


...The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...


...Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials--the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value--were ever initiated...


...A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin..."


...The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.


...A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers...

 

Seven years of silence broken--it's finally here!


A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America . The full Graviola story--including where you can get it and how to use it--is included in Beyond Chemotherapy: New Cancer Killers, Safe as Mother's Milk, a Health Sciences Institute FREE special bonus report on natural substances that will effectively revolutionize the fight against cancer.

This crucial report (along with five more FREE reports) is yours ABSOLUTELY FREE with a new membership to the Health Sciences Institute. It's just one example of how absolutely vital each report from the Institute can be to your life and those of your loved ones.

'Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!



It was a busy morning, about 8:30 am, when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb.

He said he was in a hurry, as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him.


I saw him looking at his watch, and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.

On examination, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

I inquired as to her health; he told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.


He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even

though she doesn't know who you are'?

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.'

I had to hold back tears as he left. I had goose bumps on my arms and thought, 'That is the kind of love I want in my life'.

True love is neither physical nor romantic.

True love is acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they

just make the best of everything they have.

Good Mosquitos Killer

 

Check this out..  anybody care to try... if it works..  this is really worth it..  minus the mosquito spray smell..




 
Mosquito Spray....Worth a try
I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don't leave home without it.....Pass it on. 


OUR FRIEND'S COMMENTS: I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors. It works - in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it cost me $1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not as expensive to use as the can of Bug-spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes. So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days. Don't spray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog house. 
 

Now these are Good Mosquitos!!!

Sifat Romantik Rasulullah SAW


Sifat Romantik Rasulullah SAW adalah contoh yang terbaik seorang suamiyang mengamalkan sistem Poligami. Baginda romantik kepada kesemua isterinya. disebutkan satu kisah pada suatu hari isteri-isteri baginda berkumpul dihadapanbaginda lalu bertanya siapakah diantara mereka (isteri-isteri) baginda yang paling disayangi". Rasulullah SAW hanya tersenyum lalu berkata, "Saya akan beritahu kamu kemudian."


Selepas daripada pertemuan itu, Rasulullah telah memberikan setiap seorang daripada isteri-isteri baginda sebentuk cincin. Baginda berpesan supaya tidak memberitahu kepada isteri-isteri yang lain . Lalu suatu hari mereka berkumpul lagi dan bertanyakan soalan yang sama. Rasulullah SAW lalu menjawab "Orang yang paling aku sayangi ialah yang kuberikan cincin kepadanya".. Isteri-isteri baginda tersenyum puas kerana menyangka hanya diri mereka sahaja yang mendapat cincin dan merasakan bahawa diri mereka tidak terasing.

Tidak ketinggalan amalan-amalan lain yang boleh dilakukan untuk mendapat suasana romantik ini Rasulullah SAW ada bersabda yang bermaksud: "Apabila pasangan suami isteri berpegangan tangan, dosa-dosa akan keluar melalui celah-celah jari mereka".

Rasulullah SAW selalu berpegangan tangan dengan Aisyah ketika di dalam rumah. Baginda acap kali memotong kuku isterinya, mandi junub bersama, dan mengajak salah seorang dari isteri baginda pergi musafir (mengikut undian) untuk menambahkan lagi kasih sayang di antara mereka.
Inilah serba sedikit kisah romantik Rasulullah SAW agar dapat kita
tauladani dan praktikkan dalam kehidupan berumahtangga.
Pada suami-suami yang budiman selepas ini peganglah tangan isteri anda setiap waktu, setiap masa dan setiap saat begitu juga pada isteri-isteri solehah peganglah tangan suami anda bagi menghapuskan segala dosa-dosa.
ada yang belum berumahtangga tu cepat-cepatlah mendirikan rumahtangga kerana dengan perkahwinan itu boleh menjamin anda ke syurga.


"Ya Allah cantikkanlah akhlak ku seperti mana cantiknya akhlak Rasulullah SAW, tenangkanlah hati ku bagai tenangnya air di tasik, dan serikanlah wajahku bagai bercahayanya bulan purnama di hari berserinya wajah
orang-orang beriman...." Aaaammmmmiiiiin Ya Rabbal 'Alamin


Sabda Nabi, ilmu itu milik Tuhan, barang siapa menyebarkan ilmu demi
kebaikan, Insya Allah Tuhan akan menggandakan 10 kali kepadanya
