RETURNED from hibernation! ^o^~

My thesis examination turned out to be very unexpectedly wonderful ^^ It’s not perfect, but I’m very happy with the result.. It feels so good when you already have the result of your EXTRA HARD WORK which have taken almost one and a half year to finish it! πŸ˜€

Though the excitement after having the result didn’t last very long, since my friends on the same group of examination got what they didn’t expect for all the hard works they’ve been putting on their thesises.

Gosh.. The happy feeling just sucked up in a heart beat after I heard their results 😦

Anyway… After some more revision in here and there, printing, took some signatures, and finally handed in the book to the Student Service Centre..Β  We’re now proudly holding the B.A title behind each of our names! πŸ˜‰

OK, I’m back to share another health information from Dr.OZ’s HEALTH QUIZ! There’ll be no options given, I’ll just give you the answers right after the questions :p

Here we go :

HOW MANY FIBER DO WE NEED?

25 gr of fibers per day for three meals. It brings down your blood pressure and cholesterol. Food that contains lots of fibers are peer, soya beans, and wheat paste.

One important thing to remember is that when you give your body more fibers, you also need more water (if not, you got slow).

WHICH CONDITION SHOWS THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH WATER?

When your urine is clear enough to see through. It means that it doesn’t highly concentrate.

People always being told to drink at least eight glasses of water each day. However, it really doesn’t need to be like that. Each person has different needs of water’s amount, since they have different life styles. The greatest hint is : you only need more water when you feel dry inside your mouth. If you don’t feel dry inside your mouth anymore, you already have enough water for your body.

WHAT IS THE MOST DANGEROUS FAT IN YOUR BODY?

The fat in your belly.

For men, there is a good news about this : for every 35 pons decrease on your belly’s fat, you’ll gain AN INCH penis πŸ˜‰ However, it’ll stop after a while. Keep working out on your stomach, guys! ^.-

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING STORES FAT?

The OMENTUM ( the upper part of the small intestine, around your belly ). It has a chemical syndrome that stimulates you to eat a lot and will get you a high cholesterol and high blood pressure from obesity– which eventually will cause you a heart failure.

WHAT ARE FLAVANOIDS?

They’re in foods that contain antioxidants ( such as in tea and dark berry).

WHAT IS THE BEST FOOD TO SLOW DOWN YOUR AGING?

Food that contains potassium (banana). Potassium is symbolizes with “K” in chemistry term.

Plus do regular exercise!

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS MOST IMPORTANT (TO KNOW YOUR AGING)?

Blood pressure. High blood pressure shorten ten years of your age.

A healthy blood pressure for adult is approximately 120/80 mmHg (read: one twenty over eighty) with large individual variations. And as stated on the wikipedia, these measures of arterial pressure (blood pressure) are not static, but undergo natural variations from one heartbeat to another and throughout the day (in a circadian rhythm). They also change in response to stress, nutritional factors, drugs, or disease.

ps: If you have a high blood pressure, it makes holes on your arteries. And the body plaster is cholesterol. So, your body still needs a particular amount of cholesterol.

IMPOTENCE MAY BE A SIGN OF…

A heart disease.

It goes like this : the penis needs a gas called “nitrate oxide”, which acts like a viagra. The gas is also produced at the heart, which makes the arteries dilate. So, when the penis fails to “wake up”, it indicates that there are no nitrate oxide on it. And it may also indicated that there are no nitrate oxide on the heart, which makes the arteries fails to dilate.
