Best Weight-Loss Advice in 2011

Studies show a direct link between vitamin D deficiency and obesity. Although it is not fully known why, people with a deficiency in this vitamin tend to have much more body fat than those who are not deficient.
Due to digestion difficulties, many people are unable to absorb vitamin D. This deficiency is causing increased risk of death from heart disease, loss of memory in older people, severe asthma in children and cancer. It is possible that vitamin D can help prevent or treat types 1 and 2 diabetes, glucose intolerance and multiple sclerosis.

After eating a meal, drinking four to six ounces of dark wine - a blackberry Merlot is excellent - helps the body digest the meal, break down the foods so the body can absorb the nutrients and helps speed the waste on its way out of the body. Wine cuts the risk of heart attack, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes,slows the decline of cognitive function and colon cancer by 45 percent.

Pair the vitamin D3 supplement - have a blood test done to determine how many units your body will need - with the wine. It is possible to lose five pounds a week until ultimate body weight is achieved.

Adding a fresh apple to the diet could add another pound or two of weight lost when eaten daily.

Bottom line: Get tested for vitamin D deficiency. Take a supplement of 2,00 to 8,000 units daily. Drink four to six ounces of Wine after lunch  (where permitted ) and after dinner. Make an Apple part of the daily lunch or afternoon snack.

International Anti-Corruption Day - 9 December

         Fighting corruption is a global concern because corruption is found in both rich and poor countries, and evidence shows that it hurts poor people disproportionately. It contributes to instability, poverty and is a dominant factor driving fragile countries towards state failure.
        Governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, the media and citizens around the world are joining forces to fight this crime. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) are at the forefront of these efforts.
        The 2011 joint international campaign focuses on how corruption hinders efforts to achieve the internationally agreed upon MDGs, undermines democracy and the rule of law, leads to human rights violations, distorts markets, erodes quality of life and allows organized crime, terrorism and other threats to human security to flourish.

"On this International Anti-Corruption Day, let us pledge to do our part by cracking down on corruption, shaming those who practice it and engendering a culture that values ethical behaviour."
                                                                                                      Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
                                                                                          Message on International Anti-Corruption Day

What Can You Do?

ACT against corruption!

People often think that corruption is "just a way of life", but every society, sector and individual would benefit from saying "NO" to this crime.
