Celebrate Medicare’s 50th Birthday By Expanding It To All | Physicians for a National Health Program

Celebrate Medicare’s 50th Birthday By Expanding It To All | Physicians for a National Health Program | Health, Food Security, Nutrition, & Recreation | Scoop.it

Across the country, people in more than 70 cities will join in rallies and celebrations.

The theme of all the events is to Protect, Improve, and Expand Medicare – PIE:

Protect it, because many in Congress would like to place our best-yet health care program on the chopping block and privatize it.Improve it, because despite its valuable contributions, Medicare falls short on dental and drugs and leaves some people still unable to afford care. Expand it – to the entire population – allowing us to end the waste of $400 billion annually that is currently spent on the needless bureaucracy and paperwork associated with the private health insurance industry. 

By applying the savings to assuring universal care, Rep. Conyers’ single-payer legislation would make health care a human right. H.R. 676 currently has 49 co-sponsors.

How An 11-Year-Old Boy Invented The Popsicle

How An 11-Year-Old Boy Invented The Popsicle | Health, Food Security, Nutrition, & Recreation | Scoop.it

Back in 1905, a San Francisco Bay Area kid by the name of Frank Epperson accidentally invented the summertime treat. He had mixed some sugary soda powder with water and left it out overnight. It was a cold night, and the mixture froze. In the morning, Epperson devoured the icy concoction, licking it off the wooden stirrer. He declared it an Epsicle, a portmanteau of icicle and his name, and started selling the treat around his neighborhood.

Benefits of beets documented to defeat cancer

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, July 15, 8:28 PM

Are you eating beets? Beets may be small, but they pack a wallop of good nutrition. And beet greens are loaded with beta-carotene, magnesium, potassium,  calcium for your bones, iron, and sulphur.  Beets help your heart, liver, and digestive system.

 

Did you know that beets and other leafy greens are converted into nitric oxide (NO), a gas that opens arteries wider, so blood is able to flow with less pressure?  Beets are antihypertensive veggies that deserve a place at your table.

 

Mother Nature was smart as she created plant based foods that mimic the benefits plants have on your body. Beets are bright with red, purplish, and bright orange-yellow colors as pictured above. The red beets look like the color of blood and so beets cleanse and purify your blood which helps your liver function.

 

Beets are high in antioxidants, folate, fiber, iron, and betaine. Beet fibers and nutrients help your body flush out toxins. and now beets have been shown to have cancer fighting benefits too.

 

Health tips:  You can grate beets and put them on your salad or you can steam beets. Beets can be juiced with carrots, ginger, and cucumbers or try beets, celery, apple, and kale. Beets work in green smoothies too.

 

Beets are a root veggie and taste delicious  when roasted with other root veggies as in carrots, sweet potatoes. Add red cabbage, onions, garlic cloves, Brussels sprouts or any veggie you like. Top with nutritional yeast (B vitamins and protein) and you have a hearty Fall dinner. You can make beet soup cold or hot. Beets can be used with cabbage in fermented kraut dishes. 

 

If you have a dehydrator, you can dehydrate sliced beets and use the crushed beet powder for your lips or as a blush.  

 

Isn't it time you added beets to your meals and helped your body at the same time? You can't beat beets.

 

Here's an information packed article on Benefits of Beets documented to Defeat Cancer" from Naturalnews.com  by Jonathan Landsman
