Drinking Iced Tea Raises Kidney Stone Risk: Study
Researchers from Loyola University Medical Center explained that the popular summertime drink contains high levels of oxalate, a chemical that leads to the formation of small crystals made of minerals and salt found in urine.
Although these crystals are usually harmless, the researchers cautioned they can grow large enough to become lodged in the small tubes that drain urine from the kidney to the bladder.

I always thought that food have a direct relationship with the mood. That’s why when I’m moody, sad or happy, I’m also thinking about what I’ve eaten in the last five hours, and believe it or not, it has to do directly with moods.
Also, if I’m in a bad mood, there are foods that can be added to our diet and help us change.
In case you are stressed out, it is best to combine eating complex carbohydrates (you can get macaroni, spaghetti, bread, rice, pulses and potatoes) with B vitamins (green vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains), vitamin C (orange, grapefruit) and zinc, found in liver, red meat, egg yolk, dairy products and seafood.
This diet, as always, will help prevent infections caused by the weakening of the immune system (one that protects us from attack by bacteria and viruses), reduce fatigue and provide a sedative effect to keep you calm and relaxed.
If you are going through a period of melancholy and nostalgia, it is advisable to consume dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt), lean meat (fatless), eggs, poultry, seafood, organ meats, peas, fruits such as melon and orange and as fresh vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, cabbage and lentils, cereals, pasta, potatoes, rice, bread and sweets such as chocolate and honey.
On the other hand, if you are in a anxious, it is best to eat fresh fruit, especially oranges and lemons. It also suggests eating vitamin B complex, found in meat, eggs, cheese, nuts and green leafy vegetables like spinach and chard, sweet milk drinks as well, all this to reduce the effect of the lack of vitamin C and vitamin B6 (similar to the stress).
Take a glass of milk and sugar helps because it contains tryptophan and simple carbohydrates, which calm the mind and offer truly effective sleep.
If you feel lack of energy, will be beneficial to add to your diet red meat, liver, sardines, shellfish, peanuts, green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, spinach and pasta, bread, chicken, fish, dairy and eggs, foods that will increase your energy and zinc, iron, which helps prevent anemia and carbohydrates to increase their sense of wellbeing.
However, be careful not to eat refined carbohydrates, found in cookies, candies and cakes, because instead of providing energy cause fatigue.
If you are a person with significant changes in the mood, meaning that at times feels very well and suddenly really bad, you may require foods containing complex carbohydrates such as legumes (beans and lentils), whole grains and fruits, and B vitamins (potatoes, fresh fruits, whole grains, eggs, lean meat)
We complain that the food on the street is horrible. That our children are fatter and fatter every day. That old people have high triglycerides from eating so much meat.
Do not sit and say “this is not my problem, it’s the government’s”.
Governments are made out of of people, and we are people.
When we run out of resources… where are we going to to migrate?Jupiter? and I’m not talking about Jupiter , Florida.
