How Common Are Parasites?

Most people are not aware of the danger to their health posed by parasites; nevertheless, if one looks in the right places, one can find a lot of literature on the subject of parasites and the harmful effects they can produce.

For instance, in a pamphlet put out by a medical manufacturer in America, we read:  Continue reading How Common Are Parasites?

Coconut – The Fruit of Paradise

“Fruit”, I hear you say? Yes, that’s right. Despite the name (and common opinion) coconuts are actually the fruit of the coco palm.

Coconut oil and the skin

Coconut Oil and the Skin

Coconut oil excels as a cosmetic lotion. Not just a patch-up cosmetic that leaves the skin without any real long-term benefit, Coconut oil assists the body to heal and repair.

Cosmetic creams and lotions based on refined vegetable oils are themselves prone to oxidization, leaving behind free radicals in the skin to cause permanent damage to connective tissue.
