"It can indeed do this (with or without heat, though heat "seals" this product faster than air drying does) and makes this an option for creating an ultra-shiny finish on all hair types, though someone with fine or thin hair should use just a few drops of it to avoid a greasy appearance. All in all, this is a nice twist on standard silicone serums. JOHN FRIEDA FRIZZ EASE RELAX © Frizz Ease Relax Total Clarity, Moisturizing Shampoo ($6.99 for 8."

"There's no air conditioning in stairwells. I was wearing three-piece suits and lugging a heavy briefcase. I'd be sweating bullets by the time I got to the top. Forty flights of stairs, twenty a flight, that's eight hundred stairs a trip. Three thousand, two hundred stairs a day! It was like Olympic training." "God..." "When I finally got upstairs, I had to hide for fifteen or twenty minutes because I was drenched with sweat and didn't want anybody to see me. I'd go to the bathroom and use masses of paper towels to wipe off my face, hair, and neck. "I was wearing flat-footed business shoes."

"For instance, several airline attendants became infected when the organism lodged into airline air filters. Passengers are also increasingly being victimized by the potentially highly infectious recirculating air found in airliners. Unfortunately, the airliners have taken no steps to protect the public. Smokers, ex-smokers, and individuals with existing lung disease are the most vulnerable to the development of airline-induced respiratory infections. However, even relatively healthy individuals are falling victim to these infections."

"That romantic comparison would make sense if the fragrance were subtle, but all of the products are so fragranced you won't think someone has blown in your ear, you'll think they sounded an air horn right next to it! The scents may draw you in to visit fresh, but your scalp may not like it if you choose to stay. For more information on fresh, call (800) FRESH-20 or visit What's Good About This Line: Despite the fragrance and fragrant plant extracts, many fresh hair-care products work well for their intended hair type, particularly the conditioners."

"Due to the harmful effects of secondhand smoke, smoking has been banned on all domestic air flights since 1990. In England, British Airways banned smoking on all of its flights in 1998. Although smaller airlines in smaller countries may still allow you to light up in the air, most major airlines have ended that policy. Many airports have also followed suit. Currently, out of the 10 busiest U.S. airports, four have banned smoking indoors entirely and the remaining six permit smoking only in designated lounges or bars."

"Folate in food can be destroyed by heat, light, and air, as shown in Figure 1-20. Among the various cooking techniques, microwave cooking results in the greatest losses of folate.

"Hairsprays containing ethyl alcohol (ethanol, listed as SD alcohol followed by a number), hydrocarbons, isobutane, and butane all release vapors into the air that generate ozone in the lower atmosphere. While other human-made pollutants deplete the ozone in the upper atmosphere, emitting VOCs into the lower atmosphere produces an additional ozone layer that traps heat and ultraviolet radiation nearer to the earth's surface, adding to the levels of smog in cities caused by automobiles and other industrial pollution."

"The deep call of the tun, a local drum made from a hollow log, pulsed the night air. The twilight had disappeared by the time we arrived at the little community center. The usual three or four "guards" slouched on benches outside and nodded to us as we approached. The guard nearest the door stood up and smiled, his two front teeth outlined in gold. "Senor Observador, please enter." As we crossed the threshold, a hundred brown eyes turned my way and I could hear the whisper "Observador."

"The coffee forests of Yirgacheffe are in bloom. The air hums with wild African bees getting drunk on coffee nectar, occasionally bouncing off our heads in a stupefied revelry. Black colobus monkeys with white tails and faces follow us overhead, among the treetops, now and then scolding us or pelting us with some hard nut from their natural arsenal. A baboon troop crosses the path ahead, their bright red butts bringing us to a halt as if they were car taillights. These are not the manicured, pesticide-doused fields of many large plantations."

"The huts have a half-wall partition in the middle; the family sleeps on one side and the animals are brought in at night on the other side to capture their body heat against the crisp night air. The fire pit in the center sends smoke upward to cleanse the thatched roof of any insects or other pests. The smoke seeps out of the entire roof, making it look like the house is on fire. Small subsistence gardens of pumpkin, squash, and tef (an Ethiopian grain) surround the huts. Tef is used to make injira, the flat, gray national bread that serves as edible plate, silverware, and napkin at every meal."

"Was it the blatant corruption, the realization of the horrible bind the farmers were in, or the air conditioning in the Minister's Mercedes? The last time I had had this feeling was after a ministers meeting in the Bahamas in the mid-1980s. Obviously, I have an allergic reaction to ministers. I was working with a group trying to salvage a famous treasure wreck. We wanted to do it differently than the usual grab-and-go treasure hunters, so we offered to set up a conservation facility, help establish a maritime museum, and work with the government to create tourism off the project."

"For example, the agency reviews only a small percentage of the drug commercials that air on television. The FDA says, quite rightly, it doesn't have the resources to review the 54,000 drug promotions a year that come its way.40 The FDA's drug-marketing enforcement arm has only forty employees.41 Ads do not have to be reviewed and approved before they are aired. "A company could blanket the airwaves with ads for forty-five days before the FDA finishes its review."

"He was a career officer in the air Force and his superiors had threatened to discharge him from the service if he didn't stop drinking. So he went into detox and rehabilitation for the first—and only—time. I remember that year well. With my father sober, life was so much better for all of us. Everything I had secretly dreamed of was happening and we finally lived like a normal family. One year later, despite being sober, my father was discharged from the air Force for alcoholism. Past job evaluations had followed him and the air Force did not recognize—or perhaps did not believe?"

"Natural Body Highliter Mousse, Chestnut Brown ($8 for 8 ounces) isn't a mousse because it doesn't foam and it's not dispersed by propellants (or air, as is the case with many mousses today). Rather, this is a styling gel that provides a light hold that's slightly sticky but can be brushed through. It contains caramel coloring to minimally enhance brunette shades of hair. © Natural Body Highliter Mousse, Golden Camomile ($8 for 8 ounces) is similar to the Natural Body Highliter Mousse, Chestnut Brown above, except this contains turmeric for color instead of caramel."

"Exchange your perfumes and air fresheners for natural aromatic oils and fresh scents from your garden. Because most spermicidal products contain petrochemicals, avoid using lubricated condoms or vaginal gels. New homes or offices filled with new carpet, fiberboard, new paint, and glues can give off a wide variety of toxic fumes. Consider flushing the toxins out of the air with a portable air filter prior to moving in. Never use synthetic hormone replacement. Evaluate your options for birth control and, whenever possible, find an alternative to birth control pills."

"The constant flow of air through these sacs also evaporates the available water in their lining. Dehydration automatically reduces the amount of available water in these tissues and causes damage, unless the rate of airflow is reduced. In essence, this is the rationale behind the blockage of airflow through the lungs in asthmatics. Histamine is responsible for cutting down the rate of airflow through the lungs. It causes constriction of the bronchioles that are attached to the air sacs."

"I, for example, can well remember the aroma (not a particularly delicate one, but central to my Piedmontese gastronomic identity) that wafts through the air when slices of bread spread with brus are placed on the stove. Brus is a cream made by softening cheese and periodically stirring into it a little milk or rum. It is rarer than it used to be, as are the stoves and the practice of warming it on a slice of bread, but when I was a child I often had it for a snack, and the pungent smell is still etched on my memory more powerfully than any recent memory."

"But he does not consume only the goods that he buys; he consumes earth, air, and water. This consumption, if maintained at its present rate, will lead to destruction of resources. The very act of production involves consumption: often, calculating all the kinds of possible cost (including those external to the mere production process), one cannot fail to notice that the balance sheet is in the red."

"With a narrowed airway, the person continues his or her efforts to breathe, but air cannot easily flow into or out of the nose or mouth. This results in heavy snoring, periods of no breathing, and frequent arousals (causing abrupt changes from deep sleep to light sleep). Ingestion of alcohol and sleeping pills increases the frequency and duration of breathing pauses in people with sleep apnea. In some cases sleep apnea occurs even if no airway obstruction or snoring is present."

"Nonallergic asthma is triggered by factors not related to allergens, such as upper respiratory infections, anxiety, stress, exercise, cold or dry air, hyperventilation, smoke, viruses, medications [aspirin, NSAIDs (see Chapter 2), beta-blockers, and ACE inhibitors (see Chapter 5)], sulfites found in red wine, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Like allergic asthma, nonallergic asthma is characterized by airway obstruction and inflammation that can also be treated and partially reversed with medications similar to those used for allergic asthma."

"Researchers measured how much air you can blow out in one second and the total amount of air you can blow out period, and they found that both were significantly higher in people with the highest vitamin D levels compared to those with the lowest levels. The differences were greatest in people sixty or older. The difference due to vitamin D was also greater than the difference due to smoking. To get plenty of oxygen to your muscles during exercise, you need a strong heart and healthy blood vessels. Vitamin D lowers blood pressure and opens up your blood vessels, allowing more blood to flow."

"NES cavity theory suggests why this may be true, especially breathing sea air, for the sea spray would release many micronutrients and other beneficial elements into the air. It also suggests, contrary to popular opinion, that vitamin or mineral supplements may not be effective sources of these elements, for ingesting them bypasses the important cavities (lungs especially) that are bioenergetically important in how the body uses them. In TCM, yuan qi, or the life-source energy, collects primarily in the brain, lungs, and kidneys—all of which are made of millions of microtubules."

"Magical Uses Mal aire (bad air), mal viento (bad wind), susto and espanto (fright), mal ojo (evil eye), and brujeria (sorcery) are seen as very common illnesses in Andean society. Causes are sudden changes in body temperature (aire, viento), any kind of shock (susto), negative "humors" (ojo) and spells cast by other people, envy, poisoned food, sorcery (daho), etc. Medical problems caused by outside influences were reported by a wide variety of studies [eg 22-ri-24]. The Western concept of "psychosomatic disorders" probably best describes these illnesses."

"It would eradicate suppressive, nutritional food companies and forbid chemical, water, and air pollution. A real solution would mean an utterly new way of living and a much higher standard of life. Let's take a look at that. 10. FIGHTING DRUGS AND FINDING ALTERNATIVES (1): HEALTHY NUTRITION It would not be fair to talk about the horrible side effects of drugs, without at least mentioning the alternatives to drugs.

"Swallowing Air Swallowing air naturally causes a bit of gas to form in our intestinal tract. It usually affects those who are anxious or eat too quickly. Other Diseases Certain underlying diseases may cause excessive flatulence. They are constipation, diarrhea, Crohn's disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease. Bacterial Dysbiosis Excess bad bacteria such as Candida albicans, parasites, bacterial or viral infections can cause gas and fermentation in the intestinal tract. Dysbiosis is characterized by an imbalance of the gut flora as discussed."

"Some new capsules even allow for supplements to be shelf-stable (called pearls in North America), meaning the probiotics are not vulnerable to moisture, air or heat. Probiotic supplements are potent, safe and an effective way to introduce or re-introduce beneficial microbes into your body. Probiotic foods have a long history of association with health and they are gaining in popularity. Dairy products are already associated in the public's mind with health benefits to the body. Also, consuming bacteria in a capsule can be a tough thing for some people to accept."

"At the time he was trying to make up his business losses by renovating an office building and he decided he needed an extra air compressor. Although Vernon had no need for it—he and his partner already had a working compressor—he took a bulky 150-pound machine from the hospital where he practiced surgery. He carried it down a flight of stairs, past video cameras he'd seen day after day, and placed the heavy object in his car. Almost immediately Vernon grasped that he had done something really stupid and he started to return the machine."

"Americans have responded to what's in the air, and on the air, around them. They are deeply immersed in craziness. They take drugs for their perceived insanity at rates far exceeding any other country; they make movies and watch TV shows about mental illness like never before; they talk about mental illness in a newfound language; and they think they are the craziest people on earth. And indeed all this drug taking is a profoundly, even outrageously, American phenomenon."
