Tips on Healthy Food and Long Life

There is so much beautiful around us, it's such a pleasure to live.. Most of us find exeptional delight in food, there are people who live to eat actually (do not approve the habit personally). But with the modern food industry you never know when another cake, ice-cream or kola is going to kill you. GMO products are everywhere, they are even in your milk to prolong its freshness and in your apple to keep it hard and shining. Don't expect they'll spare your baby's health. All those purées and creames are also modified. Who thinks we will live long eating chemicals? And we do eat them, just take time to read hardly readable small letters of words saying about E-additives in your jar with beans.
What can an ordinary consumer do about it? Nothing special but reduce or give up eating all that is sold in vacuum packing or all that has suspiciously strong or fresh smell and unnaturally bright color. You'll think, there will be nothing to eat then. And you are right. Starting from this day, I'm going to work on saving my life and making it healthier. Perhaps, I'll lose some ten kgs but i'll add some 5 years to my life.

Insurance Deductible - Watch Out

When i was buying an insurance policy for my auto, I underestimated the importance of the deductible. A deductible is the amount you are to pay before the provider covers the rest of the insurance. In other words, it is the part of the policy that is not insured. Of course, in search of the lowest pricing, I chose to make a minimum deductible, and only then I found out that my premiums were just hefty. The thing is, the larger the deductible amount, the less premium you pay. My insurance company did not inform me about this rule, thiugh they should have. Now I understand how much i could be saving now, had I not been so frugal.

Travel Safe

I've been to Europe on a business trip and vacation but each time I was in the plane I was scared to death.I never calm down because I'm afraid of a crash. My boyfried assures me a plane is perhaps the safest transport type I can go by. He offers me to compare it with the statistics of car crashes happening every minute all around the world. But even Boeing 747, a mosr reputable commercial air craft is known to have crashed.
I also watched the investigations of the crashes on TV and I know what may lead to a crash - a simple defect or a pilot's mistake. Who knows of the safest airline company? Or are we never guaranteed safety?
