Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

Image
NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

Trisha Paytas revealed in a video that she thinks she has breast implant illness.   I’ve watched Trisha for a long time and I remember the slew of videos they did at the time detailing the implant surgeries.   Paytas has been very public over the last 10 years about her plastic surgery experiences and has received cosmetic surgeries such as liposuction, brazilian butt lift (BBL) and two breast augmentations including a slew of non surgery cosmetic enhancements.   Her Symptoms It’s been five years since her last breast augmentation and Trisha says that she’s now experiencing symptoms such as weakness and fatigue.   In her words, she claims to have “started feeling like I was poisoned.”    She also mentioned that it felt as if she couldn’t breathe at times.

Breast Implant Illness: Signs and Symptoms

Image
Breast implants are made with a cocktail of dangerous, toxic chemicals. Plastic surgeons gloss over the risks and adverse outcomes associated with breast implants. Some women opt for saline implants thinking that they are safer than silicone implants. The truth is that both saline and silicone implants contain silicone and a slew of other toxic ingredients. Even though the saline implant is filled with sterile saltwater solution, the outer shell of saline implants contain silicone. The silicone will leak overtime with or without rupture. These are the ingredients that are typically in breast implant devices: Methyl ethyl ketone (neurotoxin), cyclohexanone (neurotoxin), isopropyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, acetone (neurotoxin), urethane, polyvinyl chloride (neurotoxin), amine, toluene (carcinogen, neurotoxin), dichloromethane (carcinogen), chloromethane, ethyl acetate (neurotoxin), silicone, sodium fluoride, lead based solder, formaldehyde, talcum powder, oakite (cleaning solvent), M

Thousands of Women Are Speaking Out About Breast Implant Illness

Image
In 2018, more than 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures were performed on individuals in the United States. Of that number, approximately 400,000 women received a breast augmentation. The number of women receiving breast augmentations increases every year. Women, unhappy with the shape, size or look of their breasts, place their lives at risk to receive breast implants and undergo cosmetic surgical procedures. Other women opt for breast implants while undergoing plastic surgery. The breast implant craze began in the nineties at a time where the long-term effects of breast implants were largely unknown and never researched. At current, there still are no long-term studies that have provided knowledge concerning the long-term effects of breast implants. Plastic surgeons performing these surgical procedures have always touted cosmetic procedures such as breast implant surgery as relatively safe and non-harmful. The two options given to women for receiving implants are silicone a

Angelina Jolie Reveals that She will Undergo a Second Surgery

Image
Last year Angelina Jolie, actress and philanthropist, made headlines about her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy. Jolie admitted that she carries the BRCA1 gene. BRCA1 stands for breast cancer type 1 susceptibility protein which is located on chromosome 17. This particular gene is responsible for an individual's increased likelihood to develop ovarian and breast cancer. Scientists have linked the BRCA1 gene with cancer development because of the hundreds of mutations that can be found in the gene. Medical providers told Jolie that she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and a 50% risk of developing ovarian cancer. A few days ago, she revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she is choosing to undergo another preventative surgery very soon. "There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet. I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who I've been talking to.....to get through that next stage," Jolie said. Angelina
