Wise Words

Be Wise

Be Wise!Getting enough calcium?

Bone fact: More than 99 percent of your body’s calcium is kept in your bones and teeth.

Calcium doesn’t just come in milk.

Consider these other sources of calcium:

Low-fat dairy products, such as cheese and yogurt

Dark green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli or spinach

Sardines and salmon with bones




Calcium-fortified foods

If you don’t get enough calcium in your food, ask your physician about taking a calcium supplement.

A recent Italian study found that people aged 65 or elder who regularly walk significantly lowered their risk for vascular dementia, the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease.

Be Wise!How To Stop Static Electricity In Carpets

When you have carpets in your home there is often a build up of static electricity, and either you get zapped or you are zapping other people or your pets. This is a cheaper way to stop it from happening to anyone. Go get a spray bottle at your local Dollar Store, and get a bottle of unscented or scented fabric softener. When you bring them home fill the spray bottle 3/4 full of tap water and then top it off with the fabric softener put the cap on it and make sure to give it a shake to blend the water and fabric softener well. The next time you vacuum the carpet make sure the spray bottle is set to the setting where it comes out in a mist then spray the carpet with it. Apply every second time you vacuum and no more static shocks will happen. Be sure to put the water in the bottle first and the fabric softener last or you get a bottle full of bubbles.

Be Wise!Dry Eyes

If you suffer form dry eyes, increase your seafood consumption. Research suggests that people that consume higher amount of these fats like sardines, mackerel and salmon rich in omega-3 fatty acid, which the body uses to produce tears, are less likely to have dry eyes.
