A Million Trees


God Bless the Firemen

My husband grew up in California.  It is still home to his family and they have lived in northern San Diego for many years.  At one point during the coverage of the fires this week I was sure I saw them in a stadium bleary eyed and arms crossed.  I called my husband to confirm.  Well, he watched for awhile and saw what I meant but it was not them.  They had fled to a comfortable family members home and were out of harms way.  If the fire wouldn’t have turned due to a shift in the wind direction – their home would have been lost.  Fortunately for them, everyone is back home and all is intact. 

I remember when my daughter Stephany was 6 years old she was making a peanut butter sandwich with her big sister in the kitchen with her.  I was a couple of rooms away.  My daughter Dawn came running into my room in a panic and said that Stephany was on fire.  I rushed into the kitchen to find her sleeve in flames and I grabbed her and shoved her arm under the water faucet.  I saw the burns on her hand and sleeve and called 911 in an absolute panic.  Normally I’m calm in emergency situations – fire terrifies me.

God bless the firemen.  They came rushing in on that cold, snowy day and appraised the situation.  Stephany had been sledding and so her little arm had been protected by 2 layers of heavy clothing.  She had received 2nd degree burns on her hand .

I salute all the heroes in California this week and want everyone that suffered losses to know that our family is praying for them.   Stay safe and protect your health the best you can by wearing respirator masks and staying indoors.  Use an air purifier that will remove the smoke from your indoor air if you can.  Our business delivers right to your door and we have a mobile unit for your car or hotel room and a larger unit that will cover up to 3000 sq feet.

Rest heals and restores the body so try to get extra during this time of high stress.  It’s important to take B vitamins and calcium magnesium to help calm frazzled nerves.  It is a devastating situation of incomprehensible proportion.  And again, God Bless the Firemen for risking their lives to stand down the fires.

Warm Regards,

Researchers surprised so few kids take vitamins

What are parents thinking?  Our kids need vitamins more today than ever with school lunchs packed with empty calories and transfats.  How can kids get past the TV and out into the fresh air if they don’t have proper nutrition and a good multi-vitamin? 

If you have kids – get them on a clinically proven multi-vitamin – they’ll feel better and may even drop a few pounds.

 

 

 Researchers surprised so few kids take vitamins
Tue Oct 2, 2007 10:30 AM ET

By Will DunhamWASHINGTON (Reuters) – Less than a third of U.S. children are taking vitamin and mineral dietary supplements, according to a study published on Monday by researchers who were surprised the number was so low.All told, 32 percent of U.S. children used a dietary supplement in the past month, based on a nationally representative survey from 1999 to 2002 that included 10,136 children age 18 or younger, the researchers said.The most commonly used supplements were multivitamins and multiminerals, taken by 18 percent of the children. Another 4 percent used single-vitamin supplements and 2 percent used single-mineral supplements, and just under 1 percent used botanical supplements, the researchers said.The remaining supplement users took a diverse array of other supplement types, the researchers said.“In the adult population, 50 percent of the U.S. population is taking any dietary supplement. Thirty percent of the adult population is taking a multivitamin, multimineral preparation,” Mary Frances Picciano, a nutrition researcher at the National Institutes of Health who led the study, said in a telephone interview.“We anticipated that the usage would be higher among children than it would be among adults, and we found just the opposite,” Picciano added.The study appears in the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.The children using supplements were more likely to be thinner, from a higher-income family without smokers, and spend less time with television and video games, the study found. Non-Hispanic white children were about twice as likely as black children to take these supplements.Among age groups, the most likely to be taking a dietary supplement were those ages 4 to 8 (41 percent), followed by ages 1 to 3 (38 percent), ages 9 to 13 (29 percent), ages 14 to 18 (26 percent) and infants younger than a year old (12 percent), the study found.Picciano said she was particularly surprised at how few infants and young children were taking supplements. She noted, for example, that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends vitamin D supplements for infants who are breast-fed.The researchers said leading medical groups emphasize a proper diet as the best source of nutrition for children.“A dietary supplement cannot make up for a faulty diet. The diet still has to contain all the food groups,” Picciano said.“Yet, there are certain nutrients that cannot be reliably provided by the diet,” Picciano added. “And vitamin D and calcium are classic examples.”
