Every now and then I have to go into one of my Rants about the callous stupidity of our nations politicians.
This is one of those rants about these heartless and cruel politicians and their attempt at splitting people with Pre-Existing Medical Conditions away from the rest of the population, essentially condemning them to eventual poverty and becoming second class citizens, with health problems that will often lead to the depletion of any saving they have or worse, their deaths.
Someone ( a close friend from long ago, actually) called me a sponge; an ugly one but still a sponge.
He went on to say that I kept picking up bits of information about so many different things that he never knew what I was going to say or talk about next.
And, if I am going to be honest, he was and still is right. I love to learn about new things (to me) and old things (that still work) and I consider what I learn as my own personal “Pearls of Wisdom”.
Many years ago (too many to count, honestly) I was into studying different Oriental and Asian ways of life, religions and what seemed to me to be, idiosyncrasies.
Long story short. I got into the whole Yin and Yang thing and this ancient philosophy of maintaining a healthy body and even healing an unhealthy one for a while.
That was a long time ago, and I have kept this kind of information in my mind always. But, just the other day, I read an article written by a fellow HubPage writer, on this subject, that I think should be shared.
So, click on the link below to open page to read this very good article, if you are interested.
OK, as a Diabetic, (Type-2 Diabetic that is) I often get a little frustrated with having to explain why I can’t have that slice of Pecan Pie, or that large piece of Red Velvet Cake covered with several scoops of Ice Cream, etc.
Being a Diabetic, I have to stay on my toes when it comes to my daily food selections, and certain things are not allowed.
Most people just do not understand Diabetes, and I wrote the article below for you, so you can appreciate the disease itself as well as what a Diabetic must do to maintain a healthy body, every day.

One of the major killers of Men and Women is the dreaded Heart Attack.
I was sorting through the daily mail, at home,the other day and I found an advertisement that had a Fridge magnet attached to it.
The magnet was a simple thing that listed the most Common signs that a person might be having a heart attack. The interesting thing was that there were significant differences between several of the Men’s symptoms and Women’s symptoms.
I did a little research on this and I thought that I should share this difference with the rest of the world.
Below is a table listing these most Common Symptoms of a Heart Attack for both Men and Women.
Pain in one or both Arms, Neck, Jaw, Back or Stomach
Shortness of Breath
Dizziness or Light Headedness
Breaking Out in a Cold Sweat
Uncomfortable Pressure, Fullness, Pain or Discomfort in the chest
Overwhelming or Unusual Fatigue
Nausea and Vomiting
I suggest that you might want to print this little table and tape it onto your own Fridge door. Just In Case!
It showed that avoiding Pork, Beef, and even Chicken can reduce early deaths by as much as 12 percent relative to non-vegetarians And over the six year study, these people also had 19 percent fewer deaths from Heart disease.
Even if you add Seafood and Fish to your Vegetarian-style diet, you still have the same lower chance of early death. Eating these Vegetarian foods with the addition of Seafood’s is similar to a Mediterranean style diet and is in line with similar data on Mediterranean diets.
Interestingly, adding meats, regardless of whether you are a Vegetarian or not did not change the chancel of Cancer occurring.
