Are Eggs Healthy

Are Eggs Healthy or Are They as Bad as Smoking Cheap NFL Jerseys

For years whole eggs with the yolk had a pretty villainous reputation for being cholesterol bombs and an omelet was dubbed a heart attack on a plate. Using ultrasound, scientists were able to measure build up in the patients' arteries. They were also asked to fill out questionnaires about their lifestyles, which included smoking habits and the number of egg yolks consumed per week. Researchers found that artery health worsened significantly in heavy smokers and those who reported eating three or more yolks a week. The trouble is, there's so much this research doesn't tell us.

First it's not exact data. It's an estimate based on asking people to recall what they've eaten. And there's a whole lot we don't know about the people who ate more eggs, like what else were they eating, and how did they prepare those eggs, info that may very well be responsible for the artery impact. Perhaps heavy egg eaters are less active. Bottom line: this may be a clue but it's no smoking gun. wholesale jerseys

When you look at the overall body of research on eggs, there's a lot of good news. A University of Connecticut study found that when egg and bagel breakfasts contained an identical number of calories, those who ate eggs reported feeling less hungry and more satisfied for up to three hours and naturally consumed fewer calories later in the day. Another study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that eating eggs for breakfast as part of a reduced calorie diet helped overweight dieters lose 65 percent more weight and feel more energized than those who ate a bagel breakfast with an equal number of calories and an identical volume. And a third bagel versus egg breakfast study found that after eight weeks, egg eaters lost almost twice as much weight, and had an 83 percent greater decrease in their waistlines, compared to the bagel group. cheap jerseys

As for heart health, these studies found no significant differences in subjects' blood cholesterol levels. That's not surprising because newer research has confirmed that saturated fat in the diet, not cholesterol, is what influences blood cholesterol levels the most. While whole eggs are high in cholesterol, they're low in saturated fat. One large egg contains just 1.5 grams, compared to three grams in a cup of two percent milk or seven grams in a tablespoon of butter. cheap nfl jerseys china

Plus, egg yolks contain some important nutrients that aren't found in the whites, including vitamin D (check out my previous post about this sunshine vitamin and weight loss) and choline. If you're not familiar with the latter, choline is a nutrient needed to produce each of your body's cell membranes, as well as help support brain health, muscle control, and memory. Choline also quells inflammation, a known trigger of premature aging and disease, and some research shows it helps break down fat deposits in the body. In this solid food "detox" the same four meals are consumed every day for five days, made from combinations of just five foods (eggs, spinach, almonds, raspberries, and yogurt), which I chose for their high nutrient levels, healthy balance of "good" carbs, lean protein, and healthful fat, and proven ability to support hunger free weight loss. After the detox ends I also included organic eggs in the book's long term plan, like the Cranberry Pesto Spread Dip and Berry Almond French Toast(note there's also a vegan version of the plan).

So if you're an egg fan, and especially if you've recently added whole eggs back into your diet, don't let this study derail you. Just be sure to go organic, and enjoy eggs "in rotation" with other lean proteins like lentils and seafood, along with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and "good" fats. an organic egg with a bowl of oats topped with berries, almonds, and cinnamon versus an egg alongside sausage and buttered white toast or a stack of syrupy pancakes) that matters most.

Ansell eyes oil and gas sector

Ansell eyes oil and gas sector

Ansell says the oil and gas sector is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and is expanding everywhere.

Chief executive Magnus Nicolin on Monday said Ansell now had 10 types of glove in its range catering specifically for the oil and gas sector, whereas 18 months ago it had none.

"We now have a full range to service that industry and are starting to dedicate sales resources uniquely for the oil and gas industry to make sure that we can capture that opportunity," Mr Nicolin said in a market briefing.

However, demand for specialised military gloves was weaker as customers such as the US and Australia spent less, following troop withdrawals.

Mr Nicolin also said Ansell had developed a new range of industrial gloves called Edge for emerging markets such as China, Russia, Mexico and Brazil. Christian Louboutin For Sale

The Edge gloves did not offer the same capabilities as Ansell's HyFlex range but were cheaper.

Ansell reported a net profit of $US65.6 million ($A74.25 million) for the six months to December 31, up nearly 15 per cent from $US57.1 million a year ago. Christian Louboutin Replicas

Sales lifted 8.7 per cent to $US708.3 million, largely on the back of recent acquisitions.

Ansell sold more medical, industrial and specialty products, but condom sales were weaker.

New product sales products less than three years old rose 20 per cent. fake oakleys outlet

Mr Nicolin described the result as pretty solid and said the company had good momentum.

He said the global economic environment was mixed: North America and the eurozone were slowly strengthening; there was weakness in emerging markets such as Russia, Turkey and Brazil; and Australia had "not looked too pretty".

Ansell's medical business unit had been the star performer, achieving its strongest half in six years, he added. cheap oakleys outlet

Sales and earnings from surgical and examination gloves lifted as the medical sector continued to move away from natural latex products towards synthetics.

But the condoms business generated lower sales and earnings as a result of lower tender and private label sales, distributor destocking in Europe and currency impacts.

Android Mini PC Buying

Android Mini PC Buying Guide

What is an Android Mini PC?The Android Mini PC is a new category of tiny or small PC devices that run on the popular Android OS and has become a highly sought after device. The Android Mini PC or sometimes known as the PC on a stick or android TV stick makes a unique and ideal gift for someone who is interested in computers in general. Some versions of these small form Android PCs are also able to run on Linux OS so the Android Mini PC will also interest those who are into Linux as well as Android.

All Android TV stick devices come with an HDMI connector that allows it to connect to a TV or HDMI capable display. Hence, the Android Mini PC is sometimes referred to as an Android TV dongle or HDMI dongle as well.

The very first Android Mini PCs only started appearing around the middle of 2012 but within a very short period, there are more than a dozen different versions currently available on the market today. Some models are just purely repackaged or OEM versions that are identical except for the packaging and markings on the device while others are based on the same hardware but have extra hardware features and/or customized software.

If you are planning to get one, this buying guide will come in handy. This guide lists all the major versions of the Android Mini PC plus identifies the important features that you should consider when buying one.

An updated buying guide for quad core Android Mini PCs covering over a dozen Rockchip RK3188 and Allwinner A31 devices can be found at my blog, Androydz.

Follow me on Twitter

I update my articles on a frequent basis with new information.

However, this is only the tip of the iceberg as with a little tinkering, the Android Mini PC can do much more. Here are some of the uses for the Android Mini PC that have been thought up by actual users:

Use Skype on the TV

Add a USB webcam to the Android Mini PC and you can use your TV for Skype and you can do so from the comfort of your couch. Imagine having your entire family in the living room and exchanging Christmas greetings with your friends and relatives over Skype. cheap nhl jerseys

How to Use Skype on TV

Do you want to use Skype from the comfort of your living room with your TV? Here are three easy ways to get Skype running on your non Smart TV. The lowest cost method is only under $100.

Extra computer for the kitchen or bedroom

Do you have an old LCD monitor lying around that you no longer have use for? Why not turn that into an extra computer for the kitchen so that you can access your recipes or watch YouTube recipes conveniently. I actually wrote a couple of my Squidoo articles using such a setup. The only thing I have to get use to is that right clicking my mouse in Android actually sends me back to the launcher. I need to long press the left mouse button instead.

Home theater PC or video streaming device

The Android Mini PC can play most video and audio formats flawlessly including 1080p files. But that is already old school. In the age of the cloud everything is stored online, right?With the Android mini computer, you can stream video from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Sopcast or any of the online video streaming services as long as an app for it is available. You can use the web browser and Flash for sites that do not have an app but the quality varies depending on the source. As for streaming music, you can stream from Pandora, Spotify or any of the thousands of online radio stations.

Need an extra Linux PC? cheap nhl jerseys china

For the versions of the Android Mini PC that support it, booting into Linux couldn't be easier as all you need is to copy the Linux image into a micro SD file and the Android mini computer will boot from it turning it into a quick and dirty Linux computer. wholesale nhl jerseys

Turn it into the ultimate classic gaming machine

There are many Android console emulator apps that are able to emulate all the classic gaming consoles from the Gameboy to the NES to the Genesis to the N64 to the PS One. There is even a version of MAME that emulates all the classic arcade machines. Check out this article for a more complete list of ideas for the Android Mini PC.

What you shouldn't buy the Android Mini PC forWhile the Android Mini PC is a very versatile device with many uses, it does have its limitations. Here are some of the things to look out for and to manage your expectations.

Replace your HTPC or your dedicated media box

With the correct player, the Android Mini PC is able to play most if not all media formats. However, audio sync may be an issue if you are a stickler for such issues. Currently all audio is downsampled to stereo and there doesn't seem to be any method to pass through anything other than stereo via the HDMI output. If you do not want to waste your state of the art 7.1 surround sound setup, you need to look somewhere else. nhl jerseys china

Expect all your existing USB peripherals to work with it

While the Android OS has built in drivers to support a wide range of USB devices, it is still very much trial and error process. Most (but not all) USB keyboard and mouse including the RF wireless ones work. For example, it may work with the camera app but not with Skype. Regardless of the camera's resolution, it seems that Android only supports 640x480 for all webcams. The mic on the camera may not be supported even if the camera itself is.
