When I was diagnosed with prattose cancer back in 2003, I panicked and tried to get all information necessary about prattose cancer. Somehow, I found this book at a big bookstore and I purchased it because the other books on prattose cancer were eithe too wordy or too hard to understand. This book told me all I wanted to know in such an easy way for a layman like me could understand. I highly recommended and I purchased this book for a friend who was just recently diagnosed. If you like the simple, common sense, and real understanding of prattose cancer, read this book. http://pxlflj.com [http://url=http://bwohjouhrh.com]bwohjouhrh[/url] [http://link=http://fzjazg.com]fzjazg[/link]

With respect to the saefty of eating foods from a microwave; the main issue relates to the containers used to heat the food in and not the microwave radiation, which cannot be absorbed into food as all it does is to cause water molecules to vibrate and heat. Some plastics, for instance, are more prone to the effect of "migration". whereby some additives used in plastics are more likely to migrate to foods more than others. The main concern in the past has been in connection with plasticisers which are used to improve the flexibility of some packaging materials. As the tendency for plasticisers to migrate increases at higher temperatures, only those plastics specifically designed for oven use are suitable for cooking.To reduce any possible risk one should;* Use only microwave-safe utensils.* While some packaging films may be labelled 'microwave-safe' care should be taken to avoid direct contact with the food when using them to cover containers or to reheat dinners on plates.* As migration is more likely to occur into hot fatty foods, glass containers are a suitable choice for heating these products.As yet there are no standards for claims such as "microwave safe"; if you are in doubt as to the saefty of such materials contact the manufacturer or use a ceramic/glass alternative.Further, there are also many reports that indicate the loss of vitamins and certain goodness from foods that are microwaved, but the fact is that the nutritional value of food cooked in microwave is as nutritious as food prepared using conventional convection cooking methods. In fact as far as the loss of vitamins is concerned microwave cooking is preferable to boiling so as to minimise possible leaching of vitamins into the cooking water. So if anything, microwave cooking enhances mineral retention in vegetables. Further, the quality of protein, in foods cooked in a microwave is higher than those foods cooked conventionally, as far less oxidation occurs in meat cooked in a microwave. Similarly, reheating food quickly in a microwave retains more nutrients than holding food hot for long periods such as cooking and keeping food warm continually over a flame.If you would like to read some more information on the subject the following link that has been prepared in conjunction with the CSIRO, would be a good source.-

Because of exploring all over the world wide web in addition to getting basics that were not productive, I was thinking my life was done. Being alive without the strategies to the difficulties youā'TMve sorted out all through your main short post is a serious case, as well as ones that might have negatively affected my entire career if I hadnā'TMt seen your web webpage. Your own competence and kindness in playing with all the things was important. Iā'TMm not sure what I would have done if I hadnā'TMt come across such a point like this.

"Copy Paste" response is brinlialt but he would do well not to plagiarise other peoples responses!!!!!!!!The fact is that exposure to microwave radiation for extended periods may well cause certain cancers to occur. They may also cause cataracts, birth defects and other serious health problems including nervous system damage, headaches, and pacemaker interference.However, new ovens are typically designed so as not to exceed 1mW/cm2 of radiated power. In addition, any leak that exceeds 5mW/cm2 at a distance of 2 inches from a microwave oven is considered to be dangerous and the oven should not be used. Ovens can deteriorate over time and should be checked to ensure that these limits are not exceeded.This can be done by your local service centre or you can purchase an earth leakage detector and have it on hand to keep a regular maintenance check of your oven. If an oven is in good condition then it would present no more risk then anything else around your home such as eating processed food, using mobile phones, living near HV power lines, or living in your house which exposes you to electromagnetic radiation from the electrical wiring. Also, as I had indicated in an earlier posting;the other aspect and some area of concern is the safety of eating foods from a microwave. This really depends on the containers used to heat the food in. Some plastics, for instance, are more prone to the effect of "migration". whereby some additives used in plastics are more likely to migrate to foods more than others. The main concern in the past has been in connection with plasticisers which are used to improve the flexibility of some packaging materials. As the tendency for plasticisers to migrate increases at higher temperatures, only those plastics specifically designed for oven use are suitable for cooking. To reduce any possible risk one should;* Use only microwave-safe utensils.* While some packaging films may be labelled 'microwave-safe' care should be taken to avoid direct contact with the food when using them to cover containers or to reheat dinners on plates.* As migration is more likely to occur into hot fatty foods, glass containers are a suitable choice for heating these products. As yet there are no standards for claims such as "microwave safe"; if you are in doubt as to the safety of such materials contact the manufacturer or use a ceramic/glass alternative.In the end, I guess time will tell as to what other possible adverse effects, microwave ovens may have on our lifes! http://xqzpxjgrhw.com [http://url=http://gptgaimm.com]gptgaimm[/url] [http://link=http://krhbtddjaae.com]krhbtddjaae[/link]

My husband just reurtned but while he was gone I think I finally had the exact balance I needed (finally!) with staying busy and having some needed rest time during each week hat past. My husband is active duty so he is away alot anyways and has done numerous deployments. In previous deployments I had a job which kept me busy mainly during the week. I had a very typical routine of go to work, come home, maybe run an errand, grab dinner alone or w/friend, read or watch an hour of TV and go to bed. Lather, rinse repeat. This last deployment to iraq was different. I made a choice before he left to not just exist and count days off a calendar but to truly LIVE each day. I had kids and didn't want to miss out on months of their life because I just wanted each day to be done and crossed off. I made a LONG list of every single place we wanted to visit in town. We would do little projects about it (for instance learn about fish/sharks and then we went on a field trip to the aquarium. I did this the entire deployment from day one and we hit almost every single thing on that list. The kids enjoyed the time with me and I with them. I didn't have family visit more than 2 weeks total nor did I do the trip to see them since it cost so much $$. For myself I started an exercise program, lost a lot of weight and for the first time actually toned up! I did it EVERY single day he was gone. I either got up at 4am or I did it when the kids went to bed at 8pm. I ran and kept note of my mileage. By the time he got home it was something like 900 miles of running. It kept me busy at night. I did other random projects around the house at night while the kids were in bed too. I caught up with long lost friends (wrote letters, FB),planned/packed for our move cross country (thats a project in itself), helped a neighbor who'd been hit by a car (grabbed groceries for her etc). The kids and I did have some weekly rituals like friday after school we'd get ice cream. saturday mornings we went out to breakfast together and for a walk. I had a few friends in town who I did see every so often too. Not much though every couple weeks mainly it was the kids and I just having good quality time together. I can say I thoroughly enjoyed my husband's deployment which is weird to say. Best thing is my kids showed ZERO signs of any stress or any behaviors related to being separated from dad. I learned so much about myself and my capabilities this time around, it really made me a better person and mother too.
