Did you know that every person should be taking a minimum of 5,000 ORACs per day? See article.  It is a measurement of antioxidants.

Can Foods Forestall Aging? Studies at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston suggest that consuming fruits and vegetables with a high-ORAC value may help slow the aging process in both body and brain. ORAC--short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity--measures the ability of foods, blood plasma, and just about any substance to subdue oxygen free radicals in the test tube.

In my opinion this may be one of the most practical down to earth applications of the usefulness of the internet.

May I give you an example of personal use? Health conditions. 

If you ever want to find out more about any medical condition, get the exact spelling of the condition, go to for the USA and World or in Canada type in the condition and put quotations marks around it.  A list will appear.  You can then investigate by clicking on these links. 

Any result you get, run it by your doctor. You should not rely on anything you get off the Internet but rather use it for more education and knowledge to talk to your Doctor. Ultimately we are responsible for our own lives.

A personal family member of mine had a condition called Menieres Disease.  It is a condition of the ear that can cause dizziness, earaches, etc.  One would be worried to drive a car.  Although there is no cure, there are things one can do to not aggravate the situation.  The doctor was not 100% up to date about what one could do.  

On the internet I found if one cut out chocolate and caffeine the incidences of dizziness would be minimized.  It just so happened my family member had coffee and a chocolate each day.  Once stopped the dizziness stopped the next day!  This did not come from our doctor. It was from a specialized report by another Doctor whose specialized in and studied this disease and placed his findings on the internet. 

Further there were health groups and people who shared their experiences on the internet and this made my family member feel better for the understanding that it provided.

So search for any medical condition.  You can of course search any search engine but this has been the most productive and useful site for me on the internet for many things.  I just feel comfortable with it.  Some of the computer journals and reporters have given it the highest marks in reports comparing search engines.  It will also lead to medical sites and the like so don't just stop there.

Your opinions on this are most appreciated. Whether it is true or not might we learn from it?  I have not studied this but found it interesting. Your thoughts on this would be most appreciated.

See (My wife's web site)

  • if you have a weakness for chocolate

  • in other words if you like chocolate

  • believe in a healthy lifestyle

  • don't mind $200 per month to improve health see:

I did not know what an ORAC was.  When I found out 3 chocolates from Xocai is equivalent to a pound of chocolate, I thought about was Popeye the Sailor Man and how strong he was when he downed a can of spinach, flexed his muscles, in order to build power to save Sweet Pea.

We are all supposed to have 5-7 helpings of fruits and vegetables daily.  Are we getting all the benefits?  If vegetables are cooked it can lose some nutrients. So augmenting this with healthy chocolates achieves two goals, maintaining and anti oxidant rich body while satisfying cravings between meals.

  • I found many benefits to these chocolates including losing weight because it curbs appetite.

  • if you have one an hour before supper and you do not have to eat as much.

  • Have one between meals to curb snacking on junk food.

  • all the while maintaining an antioxidant rich body hopefully

  • it is these anti oxidants that fight disease, etc.

When you consider how many families have someone that has cancer it makes you wonder that we all have it but some fight it off better than others.  Having a proper anti oxidant rich body might just be an answer.

This is interesting!! I knew you needed your minimum water to
flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.

Correct Time to Drink Water....Very Important
from a Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:
2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
