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

Nurse Faints After Receiving Pfizer/BioNTech Covid Vaccine

A nurse manager from CHI Memorial hospital in Tennessee fainted approximately 2 minutes after taking the vaccine. The nurse was given her first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine today and was interviewed shortly afterwards by a local Tennessee news station. The taping of Nurse Tiffany receiving the vaccine appeared live on the network. While Tiffany Dover answered a few questions about some of the hardships she and her unit faced, she got disoriented and passed out. Viewers saw the moment when she experienced what she later states as dizziness as she touched her forehead and said, “I’m sorry, I’m feeling a little dizzy.” Seconds later, she collapsed to the floor while physicians rushed to her aid. After her collapse, the nurse returned looking a bit shocked and offered her explanation as to why she collapsed. She stated that she has a history of overactive vagal responses, meaning that, she is blaming her reaction on her nerves. She went on to say that she passes out at the slightest

“ Eat your Fruits and Vegetables ” was probably a command that the average person was likely to hear growing up. I know i had an aunt who preached fruit and vegetables all the time and I’m grateful that it rubbed off! Be thankful for all the fruit and vegetable preachers in your life because they are offering sound wisdom. Certain folks scoff at the sight of vegetables and fruits and it could be due to taste or general dislike of them. Realize and accept that fruits and vegetables have so much to offer to you—healthwise! The fact is that fruits and vegetables contain healing phytochemicals that are effective in fighting diseases and various other ailments. Numerous scientific studies support this fact. Phytochemicals are responsible for giving fruit, spices, herbs and vegetables their aroma, color and smell and are instrumental in maintaining and improving immunity. Diets full of meat and unhealthy foods will negatively impact overall immunity. A study named the UK Phyto-V Covid-19

Battle of the CEOs: Elon Musk Shades Bill Gates on Vaccines

Elon Musk and Bill Gates were verbal players in a game of major shade recently. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft has been busy leading efforts to find a workable vaccine as Covid-19 continues to spread through the nation. Gates is a major proponent of vaccination, having said in August, “ If 30%-60% of Americans take the vaccine, exponential spread will stop. It will bring the pandemic to an end.” Mr. Gates has committed to funding an insurmountable sum to vaccine development as well as coronavirus vaccine research. Yesterday, Elon Musk was very vocal about his position on vaccination as it relates to the coronavirus. When asked if he would get a vaccine on a NYT opinion podcast, he issued a sharp, “NO!” He also implied that his children will not be receiving one either. The CEOs’ public spat began in July when Bill Gates expressed disapproval of Musk’s stance concerning the pandemic. “Elon’s positioning is to maintain a high level of outrageous comments,” said Gates. “He’s not much
