If you want Flawless White Skin

How is it?   Skin peeling and skin bleaching are two different whitening techniques. Tretinoin is an example of skin peeling substance. It causes the most superficial layer of the skin to mature faster and peel off. Those who have dark discoloration caused by the inflammation from an acne or chickenpox can apply this to peel off the darkened skin. But even without this chemical, that layer of the skin, in natural process, the skin will eventually peel off and blend with the original skin tone in a slower process.   The most popular medication being used now to whiten the skin is through the use of glutathione. Glutathione is an amino acid compound primarily used  as "liver vitamin" or as antioxidant. Its side effect is to stop or block skin pigmentation that can lead to a whiter and smoother  skin. It is now widely used for this cosmetic effect. It is available in several forms: as capsule, as spray under the tongue, and an inject-able preparation. What can you do? Be

Cola Drinks had been used as Insecticides

Agricultural scientists said that the high sugar content of the cola drinks can be very effective in combating pests. Unsurprisingly, Pepsi and Coca-Cola strongly disagree, saying there is nothing in the drinks that can be used in pest control. Facts Farmers in the Durg, Rajnandgaon and Dhamtari districts of Chhattisgarh say they have successfully used Pepsi and Coke to protect their rice plantations against pests. It is a trend that has been seen in other parts of India, with farmers also using Indian brands of colas. The practice of using soft drinks in lieu of pesticides, which are 10 times more expensive, is gaining so much popularity that sales of the drinks have increased drastically in remote villages. Farmers say the use of pesticides costs them 70 rupees ($1.50) an acre. By comparison, if they mix a bottle of Pepsi or Coke with water and spray it on the crop it costs 55-60 rupees less per acre. Old practice Agricultural specialist Devendra Sharma says farm

Transform the Salty Six

We are supposed to get less than 1,500 mg salt a day (less than one teaspoon of table salt!). Most Americans far supersede this limit. Sodium's in most everything you eat, and now the American Heart Association (AHA) is highlighting the top foods with excess sodium, aptly named “The Salty Six.” Before we jump into the list, here's some context. A teaspoon of straight up salt contains 2,300 mg of sodium. When you look on a nutrition label, a serving's worth of sodium that's within the safe range are as follows: Sodium-free = less than 5mg per serving Very low sodium - 35 mg or less per serving Low sodium = 140mg or less per serving Keep in mind, high blood pressure and sodium affects more than your heart -- those darn wrinkles. Too much salt can decrease calcium levels in your body. So lowering your salt consumption keeps your bones stronger. 1. Bread And Rolls This tops the list because we Americans simply consume too much bread, period. A 1-ounce slice
