New TAKA

We need to evacuate at the end of February 2016. I can say the last business day is around 27th. I sign the lease this afternoon. And the opening date will be in April. I might close the business a month, but not sure, it depends on construction delay.

I tried to close the business on February 20th but changed to at the end of February because of the new place opening will delay.

 

Eat Salmons ski for your good skin.

Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing vision and nerve problems.

Salmon skin is 100% made from collagen, It is better than pig collagen, must eat salmon skin at sushi restaurants. Right?

Closing TAKA

Some people know this. We need to evacuate at the end of February 2016. I can say the last business day is around 20th.

And I found a good location in Sandy Springs. It is just north of Buckhead and current customers can come this location. It is about 10 minutes from current location.

I will sign the lease very soon, maybe. And the opening date will be in March. I gave up to move to Hawaii and stay here for a while.

 

Coca-Cola and Pepsi contribute to nearly 200,000 deaths every year

Sugary drinks such as Coke and Pepsi kill nearly 200,000 people per year worldwide, according to a study conducted by researchers from Tufts University and published in the journal Circulation.

The numbers are based on prior studies showing that sugar consumption can lead to heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

“Many countries in the world have a significant number of deaths occurring from a single dietary factor – sugar-sweetened beverages,” senior author Dariush Mozaffarian said.

“It should be a global priority to substantially reduce or eliminate sugar-sweetened beverages from the diet,”

The study’s abstract was previously presented at the American Heart Association Council on Epidemiology and Prevention in 2013.

The study is the first to take a detailed look at the global health impact of consuming beverages sweetened with sugar. It focused exclusively on any sodas, fruit drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, teas or homemade drinks sweetened with some form of sugar and containing at least 50 calories per 8-ounce serving. Due to its different nutrient content, 100 percent fruit juice (not artificially sweetened) was excluded from the study.

The researchers used 62 separate dietary surveys conducted on a total of 611,971 people in 51 countries between 1980 and 2010 to estimate sugar consumption country-by-country. They combined this with data on how available sugar is in 187 different countries, in order to calculate variation in sugar consumption both between and within countries.

Drawing on prior studies delineating the health effects of consuming sugar-sweetened beverages, the researchers determined the effect that the sugar consumption they had calculated would have on death rates from cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. They concluded that in 2010 alone, sugar-sweetened beverages killed 6,450 people from cancer, 45,000 from cardiovascular disease and 133,000 from diabetes, for a total of nearly 185,000 deaths.

Although 76 percent of the deaths from sugar-sweetened drinks occurred in middle- and low-income countries, the United States came in second among the 20 most populous countries in terms of per-capita deaths, at 125 per million adults. It was surpassed only by Mexico, which had 405 deaths per million adults.

My opinion is like this. It is not only Coke or Pepsi but the word of “Too Much” is the key. We can drink Coke but 1 can a day is fine. Not large bottle or not 3-4 cans a day. Same as anything like Alcohol, Ice cream, French fry, Pizza, Steak, Mush Potato and more. American’s over eating habit is really bad. It is same as sushi. We can make money if you eat a lot. But I feel bad for your health. Portion problem is for all American people. Just think of it. “ Your body is not hungry, your brain is hungry.” This is my word. TAKA

Walking an Extra Two Minutes Each Hour May Offset Hazards of Sitting Too Long

A new study suggests that engaging in low intensity activities such as standing may not be enough to offset the health hazards of sitting for long periods of time. On the bright side, adding two minutes of walking each hour to your routine just might do the trick. These findings were published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN).

Numerous studies have shown that sitting for extended periods of time each day leads to increased risk for early death, as well as heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. Considering that 80 percent of Americans fall short of completing the recommended amount of exercise, 2.5 hours of moderate activity each week, it seems unrealistic to expect that people will replace sitting with even more exercise.

With this in mind, scientists at the University of Utah School of Medicine investigated the health benefits of a more achievable goal, trading sitting for lighter activities for short periods of time. They used observational data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to examine whether longer durations of low intensity activities (e.g. standing), and light intensity activities (e.g. casual walking, light gardening, cleaning) extends the life span of people who are sedentary for more than half of their waking hours.

They found that there is no benefit to decreasing sitting by two minutes each hour, and adding a corresponding two minutes more of low intensity activities. However, a “trade-off” of sitting for light intensity activities for two minutes each hour was associated with a 33 percent lower risk of dying.

“It was fascinating to see the results because the current national focus is on moderate or vigorous activity. To see that light activity had an association with lower mortality is intriguing,” says lead author Srinivasan Beddhu,MD. professor of internal medicine.

Beddhu explains that while it’s obvious that it takes energy to exercise, strolling and other light activities use energy, too. Even short walks add up to a lot when repeated many times over the course of a week. Assuming 16 waking hours each day, two minutes of strolling each hour expends 400 kcal each week. That number approaches the 600 kcal it takes to accomplish the recommended weekly goal of moderate exercise. It is also substantially larger than the 50 kcal needed to complete low intensity activities for two minutes each  hour over the course of one week.

“Based on these results we would recommend adding two minutes of walking each hour in combination with normal activities, which should include 2.5 hours of moderate exercise each week,” says Beddhu. Moderate exercise strengthens the heart, muscles, and bones, and confers health benefits that low and light intensity activities can’t.

The study examined 3,243 NHANES participants who wore accelerometers that objectively measured the intensities of their activities. Participants were followed for three years after the data were collected; there were 137 deaths during this period.

“Exercise is great, but the reality is that the practical amount of vigorous exercise that can be achieved is limited. Our study suggests that even small changes can have a big impact,” says senior author Tom Greene, Ph.D., director of the Study Design and Biostatistics Center at the Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

Beddhu adds that large, randomized, interventional trials will be needed to definitively answer whether exchanging sitting for light activities leads to better health.
Get up for your heart health, move for your waistline

A new study found that sitting appears to be linked to increased blood sugar and cholesterol levels, which can lead to added weight, diabetes and heart ills. But standing more helps improve all these measures and can give you a trimmer waist to boot, the researchers said.

“Switching some of your sitting time to standing could have benefits for your heart and metabolism,” said lead author Genevieve Healy, a senior research fellow at the University of Queensland in Herston.

“More time spent standing rather than sitting could improve your blood sugar, fats in the blood and cholesterol levels, while replacing time spent sitting with time walking could have additional benefits for your waistline and body mass index,” she said.

However, the study did not prove a cause-and-effect link between standing and walking more and better health.

The report was published July 31 in the European Heart Journal.

For the study, Healy and colleagues gave activity monitors to 782 men and women, aged 36 to 80, who took part in the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study.

The monitors kept track of how long each participant spent sitting/lying down, standing, walking and running.

In addition, participants provided blood samples, measurements of their blood pressure, waist circumference, and height and weight (body mass index). The monitors were worn 24 hours a day for seven days.

The researchers found that an extra two hours per day spent standing rather than sitting was associated with approximately 2 percent lower blood sugar levels and 11 percent lower average triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood).

More standing time was also associated with an increase in HDL (“good”) cholesterol and a drop in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, the investigators found.

Moreover, replacing two hours a day of sitting time with walking or running was associated with about 11 percent lower average body mass and an almost 3-inch smaller waist.

The researchers also found that average blood sugar levels dropped by about 11 percent and average triglycerides by 14 percent for every two hours spent walking rather than sitting, while HDL cholesterol levels were higher.

“Get up for your heart health and move for your waistline,” Healy said.

Dr. Gregg Fonarow, a professor of cardiology at the University of California, Los Angeles, said, “Many studies have found that the amount of sedentary time is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and premature death.”

People who sit for prolonged periods have a higher risk of early death, even those who regularly exercise, but the risk is most pronounced in men and women who do little or no exercise, he said.

It’s clear that sitting down for too long is bad for people’s health, said Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and author of an accompanying journal editorial.

“As a society, we have been focused too much on exercise and have paid less attention to the importance of just moving,” he said.

Lopez-Jimenez said that even if you exercise, sitting for long periods is a marker of a sedentary lifestyle.

Society, he said, values sitting and using labor-saving devices over standing, walking and moving.

The ecological collapse of California: State hits 500-year record for drought

After the announcement by California state officials that they had found no snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains for the first time in the 75 years since snowfall records began, a research team conducted a study aimed at finding out more about the region’s long-term snowfall history.
By studying the thickness of rings in core samples taken from blue oak trees growing in the mountains, the researchers were able to accurately measure the winter rainfall records during past centuries.
Their findings came as a surprise. It was already known that the current drought cycle had broken records, but no one suspected that so much time had passed since the last dry period of this magnitude.
The four-year drought has forced the state to begin issuing mandatory water cuts in many areas. Some municipalities have been ordered to cut their water usage by as much as 35 percent as reservoirs and groundwater supplies are being drained without being replenished.
The annual snowpack melt supplies up to 30 percent of California’s water supply. In the past few years, however, the amount of accumulated snow has been so diminished that reservoirs, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water fed by the runoff are nearing record low levels.

Nearly 50 million Americans now on food stamps

In 2008, fewer than 30 million Americans utilized the so-called “food stamp” program, which is administered by the Department of Agriculture. Today, that figure is roughly 46.5 million.
Even though the figure is down slightly from a high of 47.6 million in 2013, Feulner notes that the slight downtrend is not a good sign, according to the 2015 Index of Culture Opportunity.

I guess some people get cash salaries and don’t pay any tax. And those people claim food stamp. I work hard daily and pay high tax to support them.  My tax rate is 35% so far.

Amazing health benefits of apple cider vinegar and honey

Fewer natural substances get more positive press from newspapers, magazines and social media sites than apple cider vinegar and honey. Even taken alone, each brings some amazing health benefits to the body. Apple cider vinegar is great for digestive health, for instance, and can be used topically to treat a number of skin conditions as various as burns, dandruff or minor cuts and scrapes. Honey has been widely used since the time of the ancient Egyptians for its medicinal properties, and even today it is an important weapon in the modern fight against difficult-to-heal wounds like severe burns or diabetic ulcers. No natural health website is complete without information on these two amazing substances. However, when apple cider vinegar and honey are used in conjunction with one another, their healing powers are intensified and they can support the health of the body in some truly amazing ways.
Not surprisingly, one thing which the combination of honey and apple cider vinegar seems to accomplish in spades is reducing inflammation throughout the body. This helps on two levels. First, it can make the management of chronic inflammation conditions like arthritis or ulcerative colitis easier to achieve. Second, preventing inflammation can help prevent the onset of other serious chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease.
This honey-apple-cider-vinegar combination is a great way to improve digestion and works in several different ways to achieve this. It is great for treating and preventing problems like heartburn, acid reflux and over-acidity in the stomach. It can help treat sluggish bowels and prevent problems like chronic constipation from setting in. It can even support oral health and banish problems like bad breath! It is, in short, a great tonic for the whole digestive system.
This dynamic duo is also able to improve the health of the heart. Regular consumption of a honey-apple-cider-vinegar mix has been shown to improve cholesterol levels (and more importantly, the ratio between good and bad cholesterol) and also to reduce high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart disease. Indirectly, it also helps promote heart health through weight loss, since obesity is another common cause for cardiac problems.

I found raw honey at a store and bought. It was so good. The price is high but does not matter.
