  1. By the way, is it the rumor that yam contains something like progesterone, and increases estrogen level ?
  2. most of windows in our house are tempered glass, no matter how strong the glass is, it will be broken under certain circumstances. last month my neighbor's glass suddenly fell down from 10 floors above ( in which floor was not to be told by management department) and smashed a car parking down the block. It is so dangerous! the reason is due to cold weather (only 0 Celsius )as property management department claimed. i don't believe the so called reason!
  3. My mom has blood sugar problems. She always tests her blood sugar level 2hours after meal. She knows how she cooks could lower the GI of some food. try the results by yourself for type 2 diabetes. Moreover, in winter blood sugar level is often higher than in summer. No idea why?
  4. sweet potato is different from potato. Put into practice, test your blood sugar respectively after steaming sweet potatoes for 15 minutes,25 minutes, and 30 minutes or even longer . You will find out the longer you steam it, the higher the GI it has. same with rice and potato. the results of your blood sugar is what you should believe.
  5. Which one has the lowest GI? Which one has the highest? Microwaving sweet potato is same as baking it, and steaming is like the way of boiling, am I right? How you cook the food really matters for those who have blood sugar problems. how do you guys think?
  6. How do you cook sweet potatoes and yams?
  7. The title of that research is Researchers reveal sweet potato as weapon against diabetes. it seems sweet potatoes is a treatment for diabetes. Researchers reveal sweet potato as weapon against diabetes. similar to Researchers reveal XX as weapon against xx(disease) . isn't it ? i have no idea whether we could trust it.
  8. Control Diabetes Contrary to popular belief, sweet potatoes are beneficial for diabetics. Amazingly, they are very effective in regulating blood sugar levels by helping the proper secretion and function of insulin. Of course, that does not mean that diabetics should eat them indiscriminately. The idea is that sweet potatoes can replace rice or carbohydrate intake as a healthier option. Can we believe in these researches and provide sweet potatoes for diabetics ?
  9. why some researches draw totally different conclusion ? some say no, better not eat very often, whereas others say sweet potato and yam are both good for diabetics. which one is right ? thanks.
  10. radon daughters ( i googled it) "ions that are decay products of radon. They are regarded as a potential health hazard by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency because they tend to adhere to surfaces, such as the alveoli of the lungs, where they can cause ionizing radiation damage." I didn't get the reliable answers of how far away from high voltage powers is safe... is this website reliable ?
  11. how about the last one. Professor Henshaw, a physicist with the University of Bristol, found that if a person spent 10 per cent of his time close to power lines, he would be subjected to up to twice the acceptable level of radioactivity. His study linked power lines to leukaemia. Henshaw says they also cause skin cancer, lung cancer, depression and increased incidents of suicide. In other research carried out at Oxford University, it was discovered that children who had lived within 200m of high voltage lines at birth had a 70% higher risk of leukaemia than those 600 meters or more away.
  12. There are lines of high voltage powers standing in the middle of a park which is under construction . I don't understand why local government permits it ?? Besides park, there are around hundreds of thousands of people living near by. Is living near high voltage power a threat to people's health ? I did some research. this one is horrible. this one is controversial. which one is right ? who can give me a latest scientific answer ? thanks ! add more.
