THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE THIS FOLKS!!

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!

On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said this is what caused her breastcancer. It has been identified as the most common causeof the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue.

Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her:women
should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that hasbeen left in a car. Pass this on to all the women in yourlife.


This
information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottleinstead of plastic!



This
information is also being circulated at Walter Reed
Army Medical Center


No plastic
containers in
microwave.

No
water
bottles in freezer

No
plastic wrap
in microwave.

A dioxin
chemical causes cancer, especially breast
cancer.


Dioxins
are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic
bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Edward
Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV
program to explain this health
hazard.


He talked
about dioxins and how bad they are for
us.


He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using
plastic
containers...
This
especially applies to foods that contain
fat.

He said that the
=0 Acombination of fat, high heat,and plastic releases
dioxin
into the
food and ultimately into the cells of the
body...
Instead, he recommends using
glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex
or ceramic
containers
for heating food.. You get the same results, only without the
dioxin.
So
such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and
soups, etc.,


should be
removed from the container and heated in something
else.

Paper isn't bad but
you don't know what is in the
paper.


0A


It's just safer to use tempered
glass, Corning Ware,
etc.
He
reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food
restaurants moved
away
from the foam containers to
paper. The dioxin problem is one of the
reasons...


Also, he pointed out
that plastic wrap, such as Saran wrap,
is just as dangerous when
placed
over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the
high
heat
causes poisonous toxins to actually melt o ut of the plastic wrap and
drip into the food.

Cover
food with a paper towel
instead.
This is an
article that should be sent
To anyone important in
Your
life!

I live on the Gilbert/Mesa border near Val Vista. We had pouring rain for at least half an hour on Friday night. Because of the wind, I got soaked rolling up the patio shades. emoticon

This weekend, I reached another goal -- my BMI is now in the healthy range: 24.5. emoticon

Where do you live. We in Mesa never got any. I live at McLellan & Country club. The humidity felt worse for sure. I cannot breathe well in this weather. I usually stay indoors.

The heat is coming back at us, huh, lol, well, we've certainly had it easy this year. Gosh, I got spoiled quick, too. Hang in there, everyone! emoticon

At least we finally got some rain yesterday evening -- wasn't that great?

Any special plans for today? Going to a fireworks display this evening?

Yes, daughter and I were at the park at sunset; we could see lightning for at least an hour afterward but no rain yet. :( All these clouds seem strange, I don't remember June & July being so cloudy these past 5 years. (?) Seems to make things feel sticky & buggy.

Since I slept late (after being up at 4AM for awhile), I think I'll take a short walk with the little mutt and then go for a swim.

Hope everyone has a really nice day!

I see the lightning and feel the breeze but I pray it truly does rain so it cools things down some.

Yeah, it didn't look so great but it sure has been so nice this month having all these days under 100. Here's an article, titled June Hasn't Been This Nice Since 1913: www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2009

It almost makes me want to stay, then again, it could be another 96 years before it's this pleasant again. emoticon

Hope your sinuses survived the windy day! emoticon

It seems you have disregarded my earlier response. Again though, please do feel welcome to repost your rally information as a new thread. It will have a better chance of receiving the attention you would like.



"quit it OK"

Pardon me but might that be a gracious attempt from you to advise me concerning this team? If so, I thank you but feel I've got that part covered.

Gracie send an email to all your team members to join our rally on the 27th of June at Red Mountain Park from 9am to 11am. To wear their t shirts bring water and something to snack on. If no one joins then quit it OK

Hi Patty! It sounds like a great idea but, to be honest, I do worry about the heat later this month. And, it seems there's no one left here to motivate. I didn't realize you had quit and rejoined the team. Since you have though, please feel welcome to start a new thread about the rally as many people may not read this one.

Anyway, I feel it's time to close this team -- I just don't have enough energy to keep it sparked by myself, and have been unsuccessful at generating more participation. I started this group with the notion I could provide a needed niche as the individual city teams of the East Valley did not get enough interest or seem to foster team spirit. (I feel it's really important to get to know people in order to provide true support to one another.) The Arizona team, while large, seemed to pull mostly people from outside the Phoenix area while the Phoenix team itself seemed just a little too far away for true involvement and support for East Valley residents.

So there we have it, if anyone is interested in taking it over, please do let me know. It's very easy to switch the administration over to someone else.

June has rolled around again! emoticon

How are you?

emoticon
Getting closer to your goal? Any new goals or changes in how to meet them?

emoticon
Now that it is noticeably hotter, I will be trading considerable walking time for swimming. I may have to move before the summer is over and sure hope that I will still have access to a pool. That would be dreadful not to...

Short-term goal for me is to be under 150 sometime THIS month! Very important to me.
