"When you touch further, you find the plant to be dry with not much liquid, so perhaps it can act as an astringent and dry excess liquids. On the other hand, the plant may feel juicy, thus promoting fluid production or lubricating joints, or maybe even slimy with lots of mucilage, which soothes mucous membranes. As you rub the plant across your face and down your neck, the softness soothes you into sweet repose or perhaps the tickling excites you to get up and dance."

"Allegedly sophisticated operators will suddenly discover that swapping safe, liquid, and relatively straightforward investments for risky, illiquid, and utterly complex positions is not clever arbitrage but a value-destroying proposition. Many will also learn the hard way that accurate pricing, access to market liquidity, the cost and availability of credit, and the viability of the entire financial system ultimately depend on a kind of collective faith."

"The test is simple: You just hold a capful or two of the liquid zinc in your mouth for about a minute. If it tastes like metal, you're not zinc deficient. But if it tastes like water, you are. Many anorexics see some improvement when they start taking zinc as part of an overall treatment program. (It's better for them to take it in liquid form so they can test their levels through the taste test; at the same time, they'll get better absorption."

"Water is liquid, flowing, flexible, and dynamic. Yet here's the marvel: to change one into the other simply requires a change in temperature. If you raise the ambient temperature above zero degrees Celsius, rigid ice melts into flowing water. It's hardly magic, at least to most grown-ups. We know ice and water are chemically the same. Both are H20, two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. But this common chemical compound is subject to a simple tipping point. You can change it from one state to another?from solid to liquid—by changing its temperature."

"After more than three billion years of expanding into every possible niche in earth's ecosystem—so long as water is liquid (and even the water superheated to many hundreds of degrees by vents in the ocean floor stays liquid because of the enormous pressure) bacteria thrive14—prokaryotes are not only earth's most abundant type of life, but its largest in terms of mass; in fact, for every ten pounds of sea life, nine are prokaryotic."

"Don't try to wash solid food down with a liquid. Choose soft, moist foods and thick liquids. Avoid dry foods and thin liquids. •©> Swallow twice for each mouthful of solid food. • ? Swallow, clear your throat, and swallow again for each mouthful of liquid. • ©¦ Hold your breath when you swallow anything. Stick with purees or easily chewed foods. "? Take only small sips and bites. • ©¦ Use liquid thickeners from your local pharmacy. According to Zorowitz, up to one-third of stroke survivors suffer from dysphagia. Fortunately, many recover naturally ?"

"If you still miss salt, try adding a little Bragg liquid Aminos (available in health food stores), South River Sweet White Miso, or low-sodium tamari. Try to limit sodium consumption to less than 2,000 mg a day. Your choices are easier when you know the salt content of various seasonings. Some useful comparisons: • Sea salt, 1 teaspoon: 2,360 mg sodium • Low-sodium tamari, 1 teaspoon: 700 mg sodium • Bragg liquid Aminos, 1 teaspoon: 233 mg sodium • South River Sweet White Miso, 1 teaspoon: 115 mg sodium It is helpful to keep breakfast and lunch simple—and nearly the same every day."

"Add enough water to the drained liquid to measure % cup and set it aside. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When it is hot, add the scallion and garlic. Saute 1 minute, and then add the reserved beans and drained liquid. Heat, stirring gently 3 minutes, and then add the tomatoes, oregano, and pepper. Cook 2 minutes more. Meanwhile, place the salad shrimp in the colander that held the beans and run it under hot water for 30 seconds. Remove the bean mixture from the heat and divide it among the serving plates. Top with the warm salad shrimp."

"The timing of your liquid intake is critical to your assimilation of oils. You should drink water, tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages or other "oil-free" liquids at least ten minutes before meals. If not, then wait until three hours after meals. If you drink liquids with meals ?as most people do ?as little as 5 per cent of your dietary oils wi 1 reach your skin to lubricate it. That is a pitiful amount. It explains why your skin can dry out in the midst of plenty. However, when you drink liquids at the proper times, as much as 50 per cent of the dietary oils will reach the skin."

"This is because the regurgitated liquid contains acid and pepsin. Pepsin is an enzyme that digests proteins in the stomach, and as such it can digest proteins in the esophagus. Acid is believed to be the most harmful component of the refluxed liquid, although damage to the esophagus from gastric reflux only occurs in a small number of people. How Do You Develop Gastric Reflux? Gastric reflux can be the result of a number of factors: • Gallstones, which can prevent the flow of bile into the small intestine and in turn can affect your ability to neutralize gastric acid from the stomach."

"When substituting this sweetener in recipes, reduce your liquid slightly, sometimes as much as one-third less. • Agave nectar can be combined with artificial sweeteners to lessen their aftertaste. • It can be used as a substitute for honey or sugar in baking. Sharon's Simple Berry Sauce by Sharon Grotto Servings: 4 • Prep and cooking time: 35 minutes Our kids love to pour this berry sauce on their toaster waffles and pancakes or use it as an easy way to add fruit and sweetness to a smoothie. Simple to make but oh so good! This recipe contains two powerhouse ingredients."

"Toss in the can of tomatoes (with the liquid) and add the turnips and parsley. Cook over low to medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the lentils don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Add salt, pepper, and Tabasco to taste. Serve in bowls. Makes 4 servings. NUTRITION FACTS Amount Per Serving: Calories 260 - Calories from Fat 15 - Total Fat 1."

"Unfiltered dark agave has a stronger flavor, while the light variety, which has had the solids removed, has a more refined flavor. The liquid is then heated to make concentrated syrup, much like maple sap is heated to create maple syrup, with a consistency a little thinner than honey. A Serving of Food Lore... Agaves were cultivated for centuries by Native Americans. In the seventeenth century, the Portuguese and Spaniards brought agaves back to Europe from the Americas. The Spaniards are actually credited with fermenting the juices from the agave and creating what we now know as tequila."

"We may not need to go as far as physicians in the Middle Ages, who obsessively inspected their patients' urine with such reverence, they might have been liquid gold. But we can learn a great deal about the state of our health by paying attention to what flows out of our bodies. Like defecation, urination goes by a wide variety of names, both naughty and nice."

"Flax oil is sold in liquid and gelatin capsules. Your greatest health benefit is from ground flaxseeds. • Look for flax-enriched breads and cereals. • Flax oil should be kept refrigerated. Milled flax may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 90 days, and whole flaxseed may be stored at room temperature for up to one year. PREPARATION AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS: • Grind flaxseeds fresh in a coffee grinder whenever possible. • Do not cook with flax oil as it burns easily. Flaxseed oil works best in cold foods."

"HOW TO USE Maitake can be taken as a tea; in tablet, capsule, or liquid form; or ingested as a food. It may be most effective taken as a nutraceutical, a food concentrated into medicinal form. The usual dosage of Maitake D-fraction is 10 to 20 drops, three times a day. Your health professional may recommend a dosage as high as 68 drops daily and recommend that use be combined with whole maitake mushroom products. CONTRAINDICATIONS Its use is completely safe and nontoxic."

"Both in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated the benefits of liquid cartilage extract, which include helping to maintain a healthy angiogenic balance as well as a healthy hematocrit level and red blood cell count. Scientists studying angiogenesis inhibitors hypothesized that cutting off blood supply to tumors would literally "starve" the cancer tumor to death. Many anti-angiogenic drugs have been developed and are undergoing clinical trials. Avastin is one such drug approved in the United States as a treatment for cancer patients."

"In 1977, a microbiologist named Carl Woese, then at Yale, announced the discovery of a third domain, the lineage of microorganisms living in extreme environments, such as the superheated vents on the ocean's floor where pressure is so great that water stays liquid even at temperatures above 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the conditions in which these life forms survive today are believed to mimic the conditions of life on the young and oxygen-free Earth, Woese named them Atchaea."

"The blood levels of all three kinds of cholesterol (total, LDL, and HDL) are expressed as "mg/dL," meaning the number of milligrams of cholesterol present in one-tenth of a liter of serum (the clear liquid that remains after the cells have been removed from a blood sample). It was hard for me to believe that the Journal of the American Medical Association would have published an article that had strayed so far from its own data and the medical literature, and so far from recommending what seemed like the best approach to helping patients avoid strokes."

"If your computer technician poured liquid junk into the back of your computer the way your psychiatrist pours junk into your brain, you would be justifiably outraged. If, in desperation, the computer expert suggested putting electrodes onto the motherboard of your computer to shock it, you would realize that you had already purchased a surge protector specifically to prevent excessive jolts of electricity from disrupting your computer's function. Hopefully, you would grab your computer and run for the hills."

"Acid is believed to be the most harmful component of the refluxed liquid, although damage to the esophagus from gastric reflux only occurs in a small number of people. How Do You Develop Gastric Reflux? Gastric reflux can be the result of a number of factors: • Gallstones, which can prevent the flow of bile into the small intestine and in turn can affect your ability to neutralize gastric acid from the stomach. • Not enough acid production in the stomach prevents the stomach from emptying and encourages stomach contents to move up into the esophagus."

"Unsaturated fats are liquid, and they are found in two basic forms: monounsaturated (for example, olive oil) and polyunsaturated (for example, fish and vegetable oils). The polyunsaturates contain essential fatty acids, nutrients used by the body as raw materials to produce a huge array of subsidiary fatty substances that perform countless basic functions. Among other roles, they are fundamental building blocks of cellular membranes and regulatory compounds that enhance or suppress disease processes."

"Trans fats are formed when liquid vegetable oils go through a chemical process called hydrogenation. Hydrogen added to fat makes it more solid. Trans fats are not normally found in nature, and our bodies have a hard time metabolizing them. (Sound familiar? I liken this to the difference between synthetic and natural hormones.) Industry loves trans fats because products made with them never seem to go bad (it seems bacteria can't handle them, either)."

"HFCS, a thick liquid sweetener made from cornstarch, first appeared around 1967 and now can be found in countless prepared foods. Intake of HFCS increased 100 percent between '67 and 1990 and its consumption exceeds the changes in intake of any other food or food group.1 While there's no documented causal link between HFCS and obesity, we do know that, for example, the metabolism of HFCS differs from the metabolism One commercial version of Cherry and Apple Pie Don't let the enticing ingredients in the name deceive you, look deeper into the deep dish pie!
