Top Five Most Profitable Nut Trees to Grow
 
03:26
Most Profitable Nut Trees to Grow Almond The almond is a deciduous tree, growing 4–10 m in height, with a trunk of up to 30 cm (12 in) in diameter. The young twigs are green at first, becoming purplish where exposed to sunlight, then grey in their second year.Almond grows best in Mediterranean climates with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Almonds begin bearing an economic crop in the third year after planting. Trees reach full bearing five to six years after planting. The fruit matures in the autumn, 7–8 months after flowering. Chestnut Chestnuts produce a better crop when subjected to chill temperatures during the dormant period. Frosts and snowfalls are beneficial rather than harmful to the trees. The dormant plant is very cold-hardy in Britain. Chestnut is hardy to zone 5, which is 22 °C (39.6 °F) lower in average minimal temperature than London in zone 9. But the young growth in spring, even on mature plants, is frost-tender; bud-burst is later than most other fruit trees, so late frosts can be damaging to young buds. Hazelnut Hazelnut is the nut of the hazel and therefore includes any of the nuts deriving from species of the genus Corylus, especially the nuts of the species Corylus avellana. It is also known as cobnut or filbert nut according to species. Hazelnuts are produced in commercial quantities in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Georgia, in the south of the Spanish region of Catalonia, in the UK county of Kent and in the American states of Oregon and Washington. Turkey is the largest producer of hazelnuts in the world with approximately 75% of worldwide production. Pecan The pecan tree is a large deciduous tree, growing to 20–40 m (66–131 ft) in height, rarely to 44 m (144 ft). A pecan, like the fruit of all other members of the hickory genus, is not truly a nut, but is technically a drupe, a fruit with a single stone or pit, surrounded by a husk. The husks are produced from the exocarp tissue of the flower, while the part known as the nut develops from the endocarp and contains the seed.Pecans were one of the most recently domesticated major crops. Although wild pecans were well known among the colonial Americans as a delicacy, the commercial growing of pecans in the United States did not begin until the 1880s. Walnut Walnuts are rounded, single-seeded stone fruits of the walnut tree commonly used for the meat after fully ripening. Following full ripening, the removal of the husk reveals the wrinkly walnut shell, which is usually commercially found in two segments. The worldwide production of walnuts has been increasing rapidly in recent years, with the largest increase coming from Asia. The world produced a total of 2.55 million metric tonnes of walnuts in 2010; China was the world's largest producer of walnuts, with a total harvest of 1.06 million metric tonnes.

Top 10 Cancer Causing Foods You Should Avoid
 
08:56
Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lymphoma. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss and a change in bowel movements. Many cancers can be prevented by not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, not drinking too much alcohol, eating plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole grains, not eating too much processed and red meat, and by avoiding many cancer causing foods that we have listed below. Microwave popcorn bags are lined with perfluorooctanoic acid, a compound that has been linked to various types of cancer, including liver, testicular and pancreatic cancer. Canned foods allow you to enjoy your favorite vegetables throughout the year. However, if you are concerned about your health, avoid canned food, especially canned tomatoes. The cans used to pack tomatoes and other foods are lined with a product called bisphenol A, BPA, an endocrine disruptor that may mimic or disrupt hormones and increase the risks for breast cancer, prostate cancer, early puberty, metabolic disorders, infertility, and several other problems. Farmed salmon is nowhere near as healthy as wild salmon, and eating farmed salmon puts you at a higher risk of developing cancer. Farm-raised fish are fed unnatural diets and contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides and other known carcinogens found in materials like asbestos. Hydrogenated oils are vegetable oils, which cannot be naturally extracted like olive oil, soy or canola oil, they are chemically extracted from vegetables and is again chemically treated to change the smell and taste. This process turns unsaturated fat into a stable solid fat, resulting in trans fatty hydrogenated oil which is considered to be the worst type of fat and is known to cause cancer, heart disease, and immune system problems. Potato chips are deep-fried in temperatures above 120 degrees Celsius, which causes them to create a material called acrylamide, a well-known carcinogen found in cigarettes. Genetically modified foods (GMOs) are a rapidly growing industry and have made their way into the majority of our foods like corn, potatoes, grains and soybeans. Such food products are grown using harmful chemicals and, when consumed, can lead to immune system, brain and liver damage. Refined sugar, artificial sweeteners and fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup are not good for your health. These products tend to rapidly spike insulin levels and feed the growth of cancer cells. Refined White flour contains excess carbohydrates that are not good for your health and even increase the risk of cancer. During the milling process, white flour is bleached with chlorine gas, which is highly toxic for the body. Processed meats such as ham, sausage and bacon have chemicals and preservatives like sodium nitrates, which make them bad for your health. In addition, processed meat contains excessive salt, which is also not good for you. Pickled and smoked foods are delicious but, at the same time, very harmful to the body. In fact, smoked meats that pick up tar from the smoking process cause extreme harm to your body. Plus, most pickled foods contain nitrates that turn into N-nitroso, which increases your risk of cancer.

Top 10 best high antioxidant rich fruits
 
07:54
Top 10 best high antioxidant rich fruits 1 Berries Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are rich in proanthocyanidins, antioxidants that can help prevent cancer and heart disease. Eat them frozen in a morning smoothie, toss a handful over your morning yogurt or cereal or enjoy them as an afternoon snack. 2. Walnuts Just an ounce of walnuts, or 15 to 20 halves, is loaded with antioxidants. They're also cholesterol-free and low in sodium and sugar. 100 grams of walnuts contain 15.2 grams of protein, 65.2 grams of fat, and 6.7 grams of dietary fiber. The protein in walnuts provides many essential amino acids. 3. Green Tea Green tea contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work in the body with other chemicals to heighten levels of fat oxidation and thermogenesis. Green tea has also been shown to be preventative against cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. 4.Tomato Tomatoes are by far the richest source of a powerful anticancer agent called lycopene. In fact, research has shown lycopene to be an even more powerful disease fighter than vitamin E and beta carotene. Lycopene needs fat for optimal absorption to occur. Therefore, putting the healthy fat olive oil in your spaghetti sauce is an excellent trick to increase your lycopene levels. Start including more tomatoes in your diet in the form of sliced, whole, canned, stewed or sauced tomatoes or tomato paste. 5.Grapes The wealth of antioxidant nutrients in grapes is somewhat startling! In addition to providing us with conventional antioxidant nutrient like vitamin C and manganese, grapes are filled with antioxidant phytonutrients that range from common carotenoids like beta-carotene to unusual stilbenes like resveratrol, and the total number of different antioxidant nutrients in grapes runs well into the hundreds. It's important to note that the seed and the skin contain the richest concentration of antioxidants. It's very rare to find a higher concentration of an antioxidant in the fleshy part of the grape than is present in the seed or skin. 6. Kiwifruit Kiwifruit emerged from our food ranking system as an excellent source of vitamin C. This nutrient is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to cells and lead to problems such as inflammation and cancer. In fact, adequate intake of vitamin C has been shown to be helpful in reducing the severity of conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma, and for preventing conditions such as colon cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetic heart disease. Our food ranking system also qualified kiwifruit as a very good source of dietary fiber. 7.Artichoke Hearts The edible parts of the globe artichoke - that is, the juicy heart and the tender inner leaves of the immature flower bud - are right there on top of the list of vegetables with the strongest in-vitro antioxidant capacity. As you may know, antioxidants are beneficial substances that protect our bodies from cellular damage caused by free radicals. When eaten regularly as part of an overall healthy diet, antioxidant-rich foods such as artichoke hearts and leaves may provide anti-aging benefits and protection against degenerative diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. 8.Blueberries Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. We recommend enjoying raw blueberries - rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts - because, like other fruits, raw blueberries provide you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits. 9.Strawberries When only fruits were considered, strawberries came out 4th among all fruits. Recent research has shown strawberries to be a surprisingly fragile, perishable, and delicate fruit. Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it's not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas: (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer. 10. Red Apples Apples are rich in antioxidant phyto-nutrients flavonoids and polyphenolics. The total measured anti-oxidant strength (ORAC value) of 100 g apple fruit is 5900 TE. Some of the important flavonoids in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. Additionally, they are also good in tartaric acid that gives tart flavor to them. Altogether, these compounds help the body protect from deleterious effects of free radicals.

Vegetable farming is the growing of vegetables for human consumption. The practice probably started in several parts of the world over ten thousand years ago, with families growing vegetables for their own consumption or to trade locally. At first manual labour was used but in time livestock were domesticated and the ground could be turned by the plough. More recently, mechanisation has revolutionised vegetable farming with nearly all processes being able to be performed by machine. Specialist producers grow the particular crops that do well in their locality. New methods such as aquaponics, raised beds and cultivation under glass are used. Marketing can be done locally in farmer's markets, traditional markets or pick-your-own operations, or farmers can contract their whole crops to wholesalers, canners or retailers. Profitable vegetable farming requires attention to all production operations, including insect, disease, and weed control and efficient marketing. The kind of vegetable grown is mainly determined by consumer demands, which can be defined in terms of variety, size, tenderness, flavour, freshness, and type of pack. Effective management involves the adoption of techniques resulting in a steady flow of the desired amount of produce over the whole of the natural growing season of the crop. Many vegetables can be grown throughout the year in some climates, although yield per acre for a given kind of vegetable varies according to the growing season and region where the crop is produced.

ten most deadly plants in the world Jimson Weed Datura stramonium, known by the common names Jimson weed, Devil's snare or datura, is a plant in the Solanaceae family. It is believed to have originated in the Americas, but is now found around the world Rhododendron Some species of rhododendron are poisonous to grazing animals because of a toxin called grayanotoxin in their pollen and nectar. People have been known to become ill from eating honey made by bees feeding on rhododendron and azalea flowers. Ageratina altissima Ageratina altissima, also known as white snakeroot is a poisonous perennial herb in the family Asteraceae, native to eastern North America. White Snakeroot contains the toxin tremetol; when the plants are consumed by cattle, the meat and milk become contaminated with the toxin. When milk or meat containing the toxin is consumed, the poison is passed on to humans. If consumed in large enough quantities, it can cause tremetol poisoning in humans. The poisoning is also called milk sickness, as humans often ingested the toxin by drinking the milk of cows that had eaten snakeroot. Hydrangea Hydrangeas are moderately toxic if eaten, with all parts of the plant containing cyanogenic glycosides. Hydrangea paniculata is reportedly sometimes smoked as an intoxicant, despite the danger of illness and/or death due to the cyanide. Taxus baccata Most parts of the tree are toxic, except the bright red aril surrounding the seed. The foliage remains toxic even when wilted, and toxicity increases in potency when dried. Ingestion and subsequent excretion by birds whose beaks and digestive systems do not break down the seed's coating are the primary means of yew dispersal. Water hemlock Cicuta, commonly known as water hemlock, is a small genus of four species of highly poisonous plants in the family Apiaceae.Water hemlock is considered one of North America's most toxic plants, being highly poisonous to humans. Three members of the genus contain a toxin named cicutoxin which causes central nervous system stimulatory effects including seizures following ingestion. Castor oil plant The castor oil plant (Ricinus communis) is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. It belongs to a monotypic genus, Ricinus, and subtribe, Ricininae. The evolution of castor and its relation to other species are currently being studied using modern genetic tools An alcoholic extract of the leaf was shown, in lab rats, to protect the liver from damage from certain poisons Rosary Pea Abrus precatorius, known commonly as jequirity, Crab's eye, rosary pea, precatory pea or bean,The toxin abrin is a dimer consisting of two protein subunits, termed A and B. The B chain facilitates abrin's entry into a cell by bonding to certain transport proteins on cell membranes, which then transport the toxin into the cell. Once inside the cell, the A chain prevents protein synthesis by inactivating the 26S subunit of the ribosome. One molecule of abrin will inactivate up to 1,500 ribosomes per second. Atropa belladonna Atropa bella-donna, commonly known as Belladonna or Deadly Nightshade, Belladonna is one of the most toxic plants found in the Eastern Hemisphere. All parts of the plant contain tropane alkaloids. The berries pose the greatest danger to children because they look attractive and have a somewhat sweet taste. The consumption of two to five berries by a human adult is probably lethal. The root of the plant is generally the most toxic part, though this can vary from one specimen to another. Ingestion of a single leaf of the plant can be fatal to an adult Nerium Oleander Nerium oleander is an evergreen shrub or small tree in the dogbane family Apocynaceae, toxic in all its parts. Oleander poisoning occurs when someone sucks nectar from the flowers or chews leaves from the oleander or yellow oleander plant. Poisoning can also happen if you eat honey made by bees that used the oleander plant for nectar.

Top 10 Anti-oxidants Rich Fruits that make your look always young
 
06:33
1 Berries Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are rich in proanthocyanidins, antioxidants that can help prevent cancer and heart disease. Eat them frozen in a morning smoothie, toss a handful over your morning yogurt or cereal or enjoy them as an afternoon snack. 2. Walnuts Just an ounce of walnuts, or 15 to 20 halves, is loaded with antioxidants. They're also cholesterol-free and low in sodium and sugar. 100 grams of walnuts contain 15.2 grams of protein, 65.2 grams of fat, and 6.7 grams of dietary fiber. The protein in walnuts provides many essential amino acids. 3. Green Tea Green tea contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work in the body with other chemicals to heighten levels of fat oxidation and thermogenesis. Green tea has also been shown to be preventative against cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. 4.Tomato Tomatoes are by far the richest source of a powerful anticancer agent called lycopene. In fact, research has shown lycopene to be an even more powerful disease fighter than vitamin E and beta carotene. Lycopene needs fat for optimal absorption to occur. Therefore, putting the healthy fat olive oil in your spaghetti sauce is an excellent trick to increase your lycopene levels. Start including more tomatoes in your diet in the form of sliced, whole, canned, stewed or sauced tomatoes or tomato paste. 5.Grapes The wealth of antioxidant nutrients in grapes is somewhat startling! In addition to providing us with conventional antioxidant nutrient like vitamin C and manganese, grapes are filled with antioxidant phytonutrients that range from common carotenoids like beta-carotene to unusual stilbenes like resveratrol, and the total number of different antioxidant nutrients in grapes runs well into the hundreds. It's important to note that the seed and the skin contain the richest concentration of antioxidants. It's very rare to find a higher concentration of an antioxidant in the fleshy part of the grape than is present in the seed or skin. 6.Kiwifruit Kiwifruit emerged from our food ranking system as an excellent source of vitamin C. This nutrient is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to cells and lead to problems such as inflammation and cancer. In fact, adequate intake of vitamin C has been shown to be helpful in reducing the severity of conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma, and for preventing conditions such as colon cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetic heart disease. Our food ranking system also qualified kiwifruit as a very good source of dietary fiber. 7.Artichoke Hearts The edible parts of the globe artichoke - that is, the juicy heart and the tender inner leaves of the immature flower bud - are right there on top of the list of vegetables with the strongest in-vitro antioxidant capacity. As you may know, antioxidants are beneficial substances that protect our bodies from cellular damage caused by free radicals. When eaten regularly as part of an overall healthy diet, antioxidant-rich foods such as artichoke hearts and leaves may provide anti-aging benefits and protection against degenerative diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. 8.Blueberries Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. We recommend enjoying raw blueberries - rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts - because, like other fruits, raw blueberries provide you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits. 9.Strawberries When only fruits were considered, strawberries came out 4th among all fruits. Recent research has shown strawberries to be a surprisingly fragile, perishable, and delicate fruit. Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it's not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas: (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer. 10. Red Apples Apples are rich in antioxidant phyto-nutrients flavonoids and polyphenolics. The total measured anti-oxidant strength (ORAC value) of 100 g apple fruit is 5900 TE. Some of the important flavonoids in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. Additionally, they are also good in tartaric acid that gives tart flavor to them. Altogether, these compounds help the body protect from deleterious effects of free radicals.

Top 10 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every Day
 
09:37
Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lymphoma. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss and a change in bowel movements. Many cancers can be prevented by not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, not drinking too much alcohol, eating plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole grains and by avoiding many cancer causing foods you probably eat every day. Canned Tomatoes - Canned Tomatoes are not good for your health because the cans which is used to pack tomatoes are lined with a product called bisphenol A, BPA, an endocrine disruptor that may mimic or disrupt hormones and increase the risks for breast cancer, prostate cancer, early puberty, metabolic disorders, infertility, and several other problems. Microwave popcorn - Microwave popcorn is one of the most popular snacks in many parts of the world. But there are two safety issues involving the chemicals added into many brands of microwave popcorn. The first stems from the use of diacetyl in artificial butter flavor. Diacetyl appears to damage lungs when it is repeatedly inhaled in vaporized form. The other issue is with the lining of popcorn bags. Genetically modified foods- GMOs are grown using harmful chemicals and, when consumed, can lead to immune system, brain and liver damage. After GMO’s were introduced in 1996, GM vegetables fed to rats caused development of horrifying tumors. Soda Pop - Sodas are loaded with sugar and an empty source of calories that cause weight gain and contribute to the nationwide epidemic of obesity. Drinking large amounts of this rapidly digested sugar causes your blood sugar to spike which can lead to both inflammation and insulin resistance. Hydrogenated oils - Hydrogenated oils are vegetable oils, which cannot be naturally extracted like olive oil, soy or canola oil, they are chemically extracted from vegetables and is again chemically treated to change the smell and taste. This process turns unsaturated fat into a stable solid fat, resulting in trans fatty hydrogenated oil which is considered to be the worst type of fat and is known to cause cancer, heart disease, and immune system problems. Refined sugar and artificial sweeteners - Refined sugar, artificial sweeteners and fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup are detrimental for your health. These products tend to rapidly spike insulin levels and feed the growth of cancer cells. Farmed salmon - Farmed salmon is nowhere near as healthy as wild salmon, and eating farmed salmon puts you at a higher risk of developing cancer. Farm-raised fish are fed unnatural diets and contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides and other known carcinogens found in materials like asbestos. Processed meats or red meat - Processed meats such as ham, sausage and bacon have chemicals and preservatives like sodium nitrates, which make them bad for your health. In addition, processed meat contains excessive salt, which is also not good for you. In a 2008 study published in the Nutrition and Cancer journal, researchers found that processed meat intake might be involved in the etiology of colorectal cancer. Pickled and smoked foods - Pickled and smoked foods are delicious but, at the same time, very harmful to the body. In fact, smoked meats that pick up tar from the smoking process cause extreme harm to your body. Plus, most pickled foods contain nitrates that turn into N-nitroso, which increases your risk of cancer. Alcohol - Drinking too much alcohol is not good for your health and can put you at certain types of developing cancer risks. Regularly drinking a large glass of wine a day can increase the risk of mouth, upper throat, oesophageal also known as food pipe, breast and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, it is converted into a toxic chemical called acetaldehyde in your body. This can damage your DNA and stop your cells from repairing that damage, which can lead to various types of cancer.

Top Five Most Expensive Fruits In The World
 
03:39
Most Expensive Fruits in the World 5. Ruby Roman Grapes Ruby roman grapes in Japan have sold for $5400 per bunch and $6400 per bunch.[1][2] Producers aim for the "perfect balance of sweet and juicy." A grape only gets the honor of being distinguished as a Ruby Roman if it meets certain qualifications: each grape must weigh at least 20 grams, sugar content must exceed 18% and the coloring should resemble a cherry tomato-red hue. And there are elite ranks as well that help determine price points. The least expensive bunch and deemed standard, weighing about 450 grams, sold for ¥25,000 on Friday. The 600 gram bunch that grabbed the record price was designated as “special class.” But that’s not the highest-ranking level. That is the “premium class,” where each grape must weigh at least 30 grams and the bunch overall weighs a minimum 700 grams, the equivalent of about 15 golf balls. None of the grapes have made the cut so far this year and there were just six in the 2010 harvest. 4. Egg of the Sun Mangoes The mangoes were sold under the brand name “Egg of the Sun” for 300,000 Yen. The brand is one of the highest-quality mangoes and is certified for size and sweetness of the fruit. In April this year, a pair of mangoes sold for a record 300,000 yen. The two mangoes were sold under the Taiyo no Tamago label, which translates as "Egg of the Sun". The label is famous for its rigorous criteria, including a minimum weight and a high sugar content. 3. Densuke Black Watermelon The Japanese are also famous for their exquisitely formed melons, with equally exquisite price tags. The Densuke Black watermelon is, as its name suggests, a black melon with no stripes. The fruit which can weigh up to 11kg is known to be the priciest watermelon in the world, with one having been sold at a record price of 630,000 yen in June 2008. 2. Yubari Melon A pair of Yubari melons sold at auction in Hokkaido on Friday for 2.5 million yen, one of the highest prices ever paid for the fruit. The Yubari Melons are so famous for being expensive that they are often regarded as a status symbol. The fruits are grown in Yubari, Hokkaido, and are often given in pairs as a gift. 1. Pineapple from Cornwall The most expensive pineapple in the world is grown in the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, England. The seemingly ordinary fruit is set apart by the method by which it is grown. To recreate the tropical climate usually required for pineapples, growers at this plantation make use of a technique dating back to the Victorian ages. The horticulturalists grew the crops in greenhouses heated with horse manure and straw, and cultivated the fruit over two years.

Top 10 Foods To Avoid During Pregnancy
 
06:54
Pregnancy is one of the most important time period in every woman’s life. Therefore, eating well-balanced meals is very important for all pregnant women. There are varieties of nutritious food choices available in the market, but there are few foods which are not completely safe for developing baby. Therefore pregnant women should be very cautious while choosing food items and need to avoid all foods which are not safe for their developing baby. Here we have prepared the list of top 10 foods that each pregnant lady should avoid during Pregnancy. High-Mercury Fish - Pregnant women should not eat high-mercury fish such as Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel and Tilefish. Consumption of fish that contains high levels of mercury during pregnancy can harm baby's developing brain and nervous system. However there are certain types of fish which contain low levels of mercury are safe to eat for pregnant women. Raw or Undercooked eggs are not safe for pregnant women to eat as they pose a huge risk for salmonella poisoning. If you eat an egg containing salmonella, you may experience abdominal cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, chills, fever or headache within 6 to 72 hours after consuming it. Raw sprouts like clover, radish and beans can lead to salmonella - a disease caused by the bacteria residing on the sprouts. The disease springs from the contaminated seeds when consumed. The seeds are stored in dry conditions wherein the bacteria remain dormant, but once they are sprouted in a warm environment the bacterial growth gets activated. E-coli and salmonella bacteria cause diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramping and fever and other serious illnesses in pregnant women. Food craving during pregnancy is very common. However, sweet food cravings should be carefully handled for the sake of good health of both mother and the baby. Consuming too much sugar during pregnancy is bad for health. Therefore, pregnant women should decrease their sugar intake especially during nine months. Unwashed Fruits and Vegetables are contaminated with pesticides and many harmful bacteria which can be found on the outer peel or rind. Babies are more susceptible to pesticides than Mom or any adult, especially at critical times of development. The FDA recommends completely washing raw vegetables before eating or preparing. Eating undercooked or raw meat increases the risk of infection from several bacteria or parasites like Toxoplasma, E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella. Pregnant women should not consume processed meat products unless they’ve been reheated until steaming hot. Caffeine - Pregnant women are generally advised to limit their caffeine intake to less than 200 mg per day. High caffeine intake during pregnancy can limit fetal growth and cause low birth weight. Alcohol - Pregnant women are advised to completely avoid drinking alcohol, as it increases the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Even a small amount can negatively impact your baby’s brain development. Unpasteurized milk or Dairy products are at a significantly higher risk of being contaminated with a bacteria called Listeria, which can result in the disease Listeriosis. Listeriosis is a dangerous infection that can lead to miscarriage, severe illness and even stillbirth. Canned foods are not completely safe for pregnant women as food reacts chemically with the metal container and most cans often contains Bisphenol A (BPA) which leak into food and drink, leading to an 80 per cent increase in the risk of miscarriage.

Bingham Canyon Mine – Utah The Bingham Canyon Mine is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles deep, 2.5 miles wide, and covering 1,900 acres . Bingham Canyon Mine is the world’s largest man made excavation. Chuquicamata – World Second Deepest copper Mine Chile Chuquicamata, by its excavated volume is the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world. Udachnaya Pipe – Russia The Udachnaya pipe is an open-pit mine, located just outside the Arctic circle, Russia. It was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata. Mirny mine – World Second Largest Diamond Mine Siberia Mirny mine is a former open pit diamond mine located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. This mine is 525 meters deep which made it 4th Deepest mine in the world with a diameter of 1,200 meter and is the second largest excavated hole in the world, after Bingham Canyon Mine. Now this Diamond mine is inactive, while it was operational it was taking two hours for trucks to drive from the top to the bottom of the mine. Great Blue Hole – Belize The Great Blue Hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 70 km from the mainland and Belize City. The hole is circular in shape, over 300 m across and 124 m deep. Kimberley Diamond Mine – South Africa Kimberley Mine also called ” Big Hole” is an open-pit and underground diamond mine in Kimberley, South Africa. It is claimed to be the largest excavated hole by hand in the world, although this claim is disputed. The Big Hole has a surface of 17 hectares and is 463 metres wide. It was excavated to a depth of 240 metres , but then partially infilled with debris reducing its depth to about 215 metres. Sinkhole – Guatemala The 2007 Guatemala City sinkhole is a 100-metre deep sinkhole which formed in Guatemala City in 2007, due to sewage pipe ruptures. Its collapse caused the deaths of five people, and the evacuation of over a thousand. Several rainstorms also contributed to the sinkhole’s collapse, as stormwater percolated into the ground, further dissolving the rocks beneath Guatemala City. Harwood Hole, New Zealand Harwood Hole is New Zealand’s deepest vertical shaft. The long rope descent is considered one of the most spectacular parts of the caving experience at Harwood’s. Harwood’s Hole has an overall depth of 357 m. It is the deepest explored cave in New Zealand. Dean’s Blue Hole – The Bahamas Dean’s Blue Hole is the world’s deepest known salt water blue hole with an entrance below the sea level. It plunges 202 metres in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas.

Most Scariest Places on the Earth Pluckley, Kent Pluckley has been named the most haunted village in England by the Guinness World Records. According to records, the surrounding area has about 12 to 16 ghosts. Pluckley, Kent’s paranormal portfolio hosts various spectres and they have all drawn various television programs, as well as paranormal investigators to flock to the place. Island of the Dolls, Mexico The Island of the Dolls is a very small man-made island situated in Xochimilco, Mexico, and it is part of an ancient canal system created by the Aztecs during the pre-Hispanic period. A man by the name of Don Julian lived on the island, and he witnessed a little girl drowning in the canal right off his island. He felt haunted by the little girl’s spirit, so he began placing dolls all over the island to appease her spirit. It was then that Don also began communicating with, playing his guitar for and singing to what he called mermaids swimming in the canal. Hashima Island, Japan Hashima Island, commonly called Gunkanjima, is an abandoned island lying about 15 kilometers from the city of Nagasaki, in southern Japan. It is one of 505 uninhabited islands in Nagasaki Prefecture. Tower of London During its 900 years of existence, the Tower of London has earned the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in the UK. In January 1816, a sentry on guard outside the Jewel House claimed to have witnessed an apparition of a bear advancing towards him, and reportedly died of fright a few days later. Aokigahara, Japan Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees, is a 35-square-kilometre forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The forest has an historic association with demons in Japanese mythology and is a popular place for suicides (57 in 2010), despite the sign posted in Japanese at the head of the main trail urging suicidal visitors to think of their families and contact a suicide prevention association. Bhangarh Fort The Bhangarh Fort is a 17th-century fort built in Rajasthan, India. A new village of Bhangarh with a population of 1,306 in 200 households has developed outside the limits of the fort as there is fear of ghosts haunting the old city. Helltown, Ohio Helltown is an area in Boston Township, Summit County, Ohio, known formally as “Boston, Ohio”. Local legend associates the area with Satanists and hauntings. These stories are generally considered fakelore, resulting from the empty buildings that stood as a result of a mass eminent domain seizure of homes in the area during the designation of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Pripyat, Ukraine Pripyat is an abandoned city in northern Ukraine, near the border with Belarus. The town closest to the No. 4 reactor was Pripyat, a city of 49,000 founded in 1970 to house workers from Chernobyl. Only about three kilometers from the plant, the entire city was forced to evacuate. Edinburgh Castle Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland from its position on the Castle Rock.In 2001, the castle vaults and chambers were subjected to a rigorous 10-day scientific survey, using night-vision equipment, digital cameras, thermal imaging, and 240 carefully-screened volunteers. Nearly half of those who took part reported ghost sightings and spooky phenomena, including sudden drops in temperature and the sensation of unseen presences tugging at their clothes. Hell Fire Club This building – a hunting lodge built around 1725 by William Conolly – was originally called Mount Pelier and since its construction the hill has also gone by the same name.

Cullinan Diamond- The largest gem-quality diamond ever found
 
01:35
The Cullinan diamond is the largest gem-quality diamond ever found, at 3106.75 carat (621.35 g, 1.37 lb) rough weight.About 10.5 cm (4.1 inches) long in its largest dimension, it was found January 26, 1905, in the Premier No. 2 mine, near Pretoria, South Africa. The largest polished gem from the stone is named Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, and at 530.4 carats (106.1 g) was the largest polished diamond in the world until the 1985 discovery of the Golden Jubilee Diamond, 545.67 carats (109.13 g), also from the Premier Mine. Cullinan I is now mounted in the head of the Sceptre with the Cross. The second largest gem from the Cullinan stone, Cullinan II or the Lesser Star of Africa, at 317.4 carats (63.5 g), is the fourth largest polished diamond in the world. Both gems are in the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. The Cullinan diamond was found by Thomas Evan Powell, a miner who brought it to the surface and gave it to Frederick Wells, surface manager of the Premier Diamond Mining Company in Cullinan, South Africa on January 26, 1905. The stone was named after Sir Thomas Cullinan, the owner of the diamond mine. Sir William Crookes performed an analysis of the Cullinan diamond before it was cut and mentioned its remarkable clarity, but also a black spot in the middle. The colours around the black spot were very vivid and changed as the analyzer was turned. According to Crookes, this pointed to internal strain. Such strain is not uncommon in diamonds. The stone was bought by the Transvaal government and presented to King Edward VII on his birthday. It was cut into three large parts by Asscher Brothers of Amsterdam, and eventually into 9 large gem-quality stones and a number of smaller fragments. At the time, technology had not yet evolved to guarantee quality of the modern standard, and cutting the diamond was considered difficult and risky. In order to enable Asscher to cut the diamond in one blow, an incision was made, half an inch deep. Then, a specifically designed knife was placed in the incision and the diamond was split in one heavy blow. The diamond split through a defective spot, which was shared in both halves of the diamond.

5 Mysterious Photos That Cannot Be Explained
 
02:17
most mysterious photos of all time The Cooper Family Photo As the Cooper's move into their new home in Texas, they take a photograph of the family sitting together, but as the photo is taken, a body falls from the ceiling. The OP said he wasn't sure if it was real, but he thought it was real creepy. Hessdalen Lights The Hessdalen Lights are a spectacular, but unexplained light show, that can be seen various times throughout the year in the skies over Norway. The lights were most active from 1981 through 1984, when people traveled from all over the world to camp out and see the lights which were said to be visible 15-20 times per week. These days, the sightings are down to about 15-20 times a year. A scientific explanation for these lights remains unproven, leading many to hypothesize that they are caused by alien spacecraft. Other sightings including headlights, mirages, astronomical bodies and aircraft have been noted. Battle of LA A photo published in the Los Angeles Times on February 26, 1942 has been cited by modern day conspiracy theorists and UFOlogists as evidence of an extra-terrestrial visitation. They assert that the photo clearly shows searchlights focused on an alien spaceship; however, the photo was heavily modified by photo retouching prior to publication. Hook Island Sea Monster The Hook Island Sea Monster was photographed by the Le Serrec family in 1964, and it has been one of the most mysterious cases in cryptozoology ever since. The gigantic tadpole like creature was reported to be 80 feet long, and just when Le Serrec was beginning to think it was dead, the sea serpent opened it's toothless mouth and swam away. According to the Le Serrec family, the creature possessed eyes on the top of it's head with pale coloring and had smooth black and brown skin. Nothing like it has ever been spotted again. Time Traveling Hipster People believe that this photograph, taken in 1941 at the re-opening of the South Forks Bridge in Gold Bridge, Canada, is depicting a man in seemingly modern dress and style, with a camera that is advanced well beyond its time. The circle on the left illustrates a man with a camera typical to the time-period.

Top Ten Amazing Fruits that Grow  in  Weird Ways
 
03:30
Cashew The cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is a tree in the family Anacardiaceae which produces a seed that is harvested as the cashew nut. Its English name derives from the Portuguese name for the fruit of the cashew tree, caju. The cashew nut is a popular snack and food source. Cashews, unlike other oily tree nuts, contain starch to about 10% of their weight. This makes them more effective than other nuts in thickening water-based dishes such as soups, meat stews, and some Indian milk-based desserts. Many southeast Asian and south Asian cuisines use cashews for this unusual characteristic, rather than other nuts Wasabi Wasabi is difficult to cultivate, and that makes it quite expensive. Due to its high cost, a common substitute is a mixture of horseradish, mustard, starch and green food coloring. Outside of Japan, it is rare to find real wasabi plants. Often packages are labeled as wasabi, but the ingredients do not actually include wasabi plant. Cocoa Bean Cacao bean is the dried and fully fermented fatty bean of Theobroma cacao, from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted. They are the basis of chocolate, as well as many Mesoamerican foods such as mole sauce and tejate. Pineapple The pineapple is a tropical plant with edible multiple fruit consisting of coalesced berries, and the most economically significant plant in the Bromeliaceae family. Raw pineapple is an excellent source of manganese (76% Daily Value (DV) in a one US cup serving) and vitamin C (131% DV per cup serving) The plant is indigenous to South America and is said to originate from the area between Southern Brazil and Paraguay; however, it is important to note that little is known about the origin of the domesticated pineapple. Kiwi The kiwifruit often shortened to kiwi in many parts of the world, is the edible berry of a woody vine in the genus Actinidia. Kiwifruit is native to southern China where it has been declared a National Fruit of China. Other species of Actinidia are native to India, Japan, and southeastern Siberia. Cultivation of the fuzzy kiwifruit spread from China in the early 20th century, when seeds were introduced to New Zealand by Mary Isabel Fraser, the principal of Wanganui Girls' College, who had been visiting mission schools in Yichang, China. The seeds were planted in 1906 by a Wanganui nurseryman, Alexander Allison, with the vines first fruiting in 1910. Saffron Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the saffron crocus. Crocus is a genus in the family Iridaceae. Saffron crocus grows to 20--30 cm (8--12 in) and bears up to four flowers, each with three vivid crimson stigmas, which are the distal end of a carpel. Together with the styles, or stalks that connect the stigmas to their host plant, the dried stigmas are used mainly in various cuisines as a seasoning and colouring agent. Saffron, long among the world's most costly spices by weight, is native to Greece or Southwest Asia and was first cultivated in Greece.As a genetically monomorphic clone, it was slowly propagated throughout much of Eurasia and was later brought to parts of North Africa, North America, and Oceania. Lychee The lychee is the sole member of the genus Litchi in the soapberry family, Sapindaceae. It is a tropical and subtropical fruit tree native to the Kwangtung and Fukien provinces of China, and now cultivated in many parts of the world. The fresh fruit has a "delicate, whitish pulp" with a floral smell and a fragrant, sweet flavor. Since this perfume-like flavor is lost in the process of canning, the fruit is usually eaten fresh. Cultivation of lychee began in the region of southern China, Malaysia, and northern Vietnam. Wild trees still grow in rainforest in Guangdong province and on Hainan Island. Unofficial records in China refer to lychee as far back as 2000 BC. In the 1st century, fresh lychees were in such demand at the Imperial Court that a special courier service with fast horses would bring the fresh fruit from Guangdong. There was great demand for lychee in the Song Dynasty (960-1279), according to Cai Xiang, in his Li chi pu (Treatise on Lychees). It was also the favourite fruit of Emperor Li Longji (Xuanzong)'s favoured concubine Yang Yuhuan (Yang Guifei). The emperor had the fruit delivered at great expense to the capital.
