It is becoming a trend, where the iced coffees are selling like “Hot cupcakes” in many coffee shops and franchises. Most people thought it’s OK to drink the iced coffees, especially in this sizzling hot summer!

However, the cancer charity had given warning to the public that some iced coffees contain as many calories as the McDonald big value meal did!

We all knew that breast cancer is the No.1 cancer who killing more than thousands of women each year in all over world! Many researchers have been worked out many experiments to discover the main causes of breast cancer.

Recently, an oncologists team in California have been unveiled a shocking truth. They found out that a tumor’s hormone receptor status playing an important role in breast cancer occurrence!

According to the report, hormone receptors are the one to be blamed, as it tells cancer cells to grow in a woman’s breast. For your information, women with hormone receptor “positive tumors” can be cured through chemotherapy, unlike those women with hormone receptor “negative tumors”!

This means, women with hormone receptor negative tumors are a bit harder to cure from the breast cancer, due to the resistance of cancer cells to the chemotherapy!

According to the record, more than 100,000 people who getting the radiation exposure were badly suffered with fatal cancers!

In order to avoid the above incidents from happening, the researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have discovered a new compound called the "EUK-400 series”.

The apigenine inside parsley are able to cut off the blood supply to a tumor. It claimed to have the same function as cancer prescription drug, Avastin!



Rosemary – It riches with terpenes, one of the main substances to stop the cancer cells in tumor from continuously reproduce. The researchers also discovered that the terpene could inhibit the growth rate of cancerous cell.



Thyme – The oncologist has used it as the anti-cancer prescription, as it contains with thymol, which is have the similar function as terpenes did.

Many nutritionists and therapists have been recommended us to take at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day! However, some people thought it’s easier said than done, as up to 80 percent of the people normally take two to three portions a day, which is only a half of the minimal recommendation!

Did you know that fruits and vegetables are the main sources of vitamins and minerals? Those people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables daily, is definitely have a lower risk of getting chronic diseases, such as the Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and various types of cancers!


Basically, you can gain the benefits of fruits and vegetables, regardless of the forms of preparation!

By the way, have a look on the following list. Here’s a simple menu, and hope it might give you some idea on how to prepare your “Five a Day” portions.

1. A glass of fresh orange juice or watermelon juice
2. A plate of low calories salad as lunch
3. A plate of broccoli and beans
4. Raw strawberries as dessert
5. A small pack of dried apricots/persimmon for teatime

You can modify the above menu and turns it with your favorite fruits/vegetables.

People have many desires and if they’re giving the chance, they want to have the whole world (Which is impossible to do it for an ordinary person).

Some people always dreaming of having a longer lifespan. In order to make it comes true, they’ve trying different methods and wasted over thousands of dollars, but mostly getting nothing as a return!

A group of research team leads by Abbe de Vallejo, Ph.D., associate professor of pediatrics and immunology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, had discovered that the thymus, which is the main organ that produces T cells to fight against disease and infection, seems to degenerate with age!

Vallejo described if they can find the way to restore the function of the thymus in old age, then we might be able to delay or prevent the degeneration of the thymus.

The enzyme, which is given name as “Prgnancy-associated Plasma Protein A” (PAPPA) is the main reason, why we’re aging. If we’re deleting the PAPPA away, then we’ll have a longer and younger looks, as the thymus isn’t degenerate throughout the age anymore!

Isn’t it one of the most incredible discoveries that you’d ever heard?

Teen Drink Ban is enforced in Milan!

September 7th 2010 02:30
Back in awhile, a little town in Australia, Bundanoon has been voted to stop selling bottled water in town. Once the final decision has been confirmed, this small town immediately becomes the global spotlight!

Now, another city in Italy, Milan has followed Bundanoon’s step, but they’re not banning the water bottled water, but rather the underage teen from purchasing or drinking alcohol.

For your information, Milan is the first city in Italy, which is enforcing this rule on the teenagers, due to the increasing of underage involved in the criminal!



It’s hard to believe that one-third of 11-year-old children in Milan have a very serious bad altitude, such as public vandalism, drug abuse or robbery. The main cause is highly related with alcohol abuse problem!

If an underage teenager is caught for drinking alcohol in public, then their parent will be charged to heavy fines, which can be up to 500 Euros!

The mission of Milan is to create a city that free from alcohol abuse, especially for those who is underage. It’s definitely a beginning step to the big dream…
