Why a Pie?

Ummm, duh, it's a great attention getter? If you're planning any event, like a Boy Scout meeting, a staff training session, even a party or a shower, think about getting everyone to loosen up a little bit with an explosive piece of nonsense like a pie throw. It's marvelous street theater, and can change the mood of these stultifying occasions from dreary to amazing in...the blink of a pie.

Who Gets It?

Key to the joy of pie throwing is the reason behind it. Above is a picture of Johnny Carson taking a pie. He did so on his show. He was the host. The boss. By taking a pie, the joke was on him, white and creamy. It's funny when the person in authority takes a pie.

Last year I had hired a local comedian to do a show teaching kids how to tell jokes. During her act she announced that I had agreed to take a pie, to show how it's done. Beforehand, she had worked out the scenario. I would stand beside her and protest and she would remind me firmly that I had agreed. Seemingly, to the kids anyway, I instead tipped the pie she held out into her face. Her act = her pie.

This year, I invited a group of kids from the local recreation center in for a storytime with their rec leader. I was the host. I took the pie.

The kids ate it up. The librarian gets a pie.


This part is pretty simple. Shaving cream, whipped cream or Cool Whip, a pie plate or an aluminum foil pie pan.

A word of warning. Your carpeting will need to be shampooed afterwards.

As amateurs with bad aim and no chance of an off camera retake, here's what worked best for us.
  1. Work out the scenario. Who's going to get the pie, and who's going to throw it. Make up your intro.
  2. When the audience has gathered, stand side by side and deliver your intro. I did my pie throwing as part of an April Fool's storytime. You could do it for any reason at all, but just make sure you set it up so the audience is expecting the other person to get pied.
  3. The pie receiver picks up the pie and stands next to the pie thrower. The pie receiver explains that the thrower is going to get the pie, for whatever reason. The thrower can protest, roll eyes, look wise, whatever.
  4. The receiver is standing with the pies held out, one on each hand, arms at a 90 degree angle away from her body. The thrower simply tips the pie, by taking the receiver's hand, directly into the receiver's face. The receiver protests, and the thrower tips the other one.
  5. Wait for the wonderful big laugh to subside.

Detox Pills

When I go to a health foods store I am constantly amazed by the claims on the packaging of some so-called "detox products". There are pills that are supposed to contain probiotics, spinach, wheat grass and other healthy food. Can taking a pill really be the equivalent of a nutritious meal? And what about supplements that claim to help my body get rid of toxins?

Some of these products claim to be backed up by scientific studies but the casual observer is not able to tell if the studies were run by some independent research body or by the company that makes the product. I personally do not see how the quantity of healthy ingredients they can pack into a pill would be large enough to make any difference to my health.

Some vitamin supplements have been shown to help people make up for deficiencies in their diet but what can a pill, or any kind of product contain that will help my body to detox? Well, if you do some reading on the internet you will find that no scientist has ever found evidence to support the efficacy of detox products. The promotion of the principles of detoxification opens the door for a range of products including foot pads, face washes and dietary supplements that are supposed to help the body eliminate toxins. But science can find no evidence to support detoxification.

There has been some controversy in Britain about a product containing artichoke and dandelion which is supposed to help with digestion and to get rid of toxins from the body. The product is backed by a member of the British royal family who, as far as anybody knows, holds no medical or scientific qualifications.

If you wanted to prove that detox products work, theoretically it would be a simple procedure. Get a few volunteers together, test their blood for toxins, then put them on a course of detox products. If the detoxification was successful the next lot of blood tests would show that some or all of the toxins had been eliminated, or at least their levels decreased.

Unfortunately no test results exist that prove detox products help to eliminate toxins from our bodies. Even water has been promoted as an aid to detoxification. Excess water consumption has been condemned many times by scientists who say that taking in too much water could lead to the malfunction of the body's natural mechanisms for getting rid of toxins. Of course if someone is suffering from kidney or liver disease then this will interfere with the bodies ability to eliminate toxins. In this case medical treatment is called for, not artichoke and dandelion compounds.

Most detox products contain some kind of claim to "aid in the process of elimination of toxins". If they make no claim to cure disease they are on safe ground legally. Most health-related products include on their packaging the advice to keep to a balanced diet and to follow a healthy lifestyle. That should eliminate any risk of litigation.

Candida In Men

Candida in women is very nasty and has real consequences if allowed to keep recurring over time. So you need to do everything in your power to prevent recurring Candida damaging your health.

The problem is that many present-day medications for Candida just address the local symptoms, not the root causes, or triggers, for Candida. These are things like, antibiotics overuse, steroids, lowered immune system, stress, diets high in sugar and carbohydrates, obesity, yeast products, contraception, etc.

So, even if you are taking drug-based medication for your Candida, there are natural 'golden rules' you should follow to increase your chances of curing your Candida permanently.

Here are 5 of the most useful 'golden rules' that you should follow in order to cure Candida in women, or in men, for that matter.

Rule # 1 - Avoid Sugar

The Candida albicans fungi, that causes your infection, loves sugar because it is it's favorite food to help it grow. Remember to avoid artificial sweeteners, and, foods and drinks that contain high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as well.

Rule # 2 - Reduce Antibiotics Where Possible

Antibiotic overuse can kill-off your body's good bacteria. This is one of the main causes of depleted friendly bacteria that then allows the Candida fungus to over-grow into an infection.

You need to handle this carefully, because your doctor obviously prescribed antibiotics for a good reason. Make sure that, before changing any medication, you check with your doctor first.

Rule # 3 - Reduce Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates, especially the refined carbohydrates in much of our food nowadays, are reduced to sugars when our digestive system breaks them down. See Golden Rule #1.

Rule # 4 - Avoid Yeast Products

Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus which can leak into your bloodstream. Your immune system may then trigger an antibody reaction, which can make you yeast-intolerant. So avoid all food and drinks that contain yeast. Always read the labels closely.

Rule # 5 - Help Build Up Your Immune System

This is crucial. Ways to achieve this step include taking probiotics and even natural yogurt. You will want to do this carefully, because it's important to ensure you take only natural, certified probiotics. And the yogurt should be un-sweetened, with no fruit or other additives..

By following these 5 golden rules for Candida in women, or men, you'll be in a much better position to cure your Candida and start to get your life back again. But there's even more to do (see below).

Yeast Diet

Prevention is always better than cure. Just by sticking to some simple dietary rules you can help to prevent yeast infections naturally. Here you'll learn which foods to avoid and which you can eat as part of your yeast infection diet. Plus, you'll also get the facts on other issues that you need to address to prevent infections.

To understand how you can prevent yeast infections naturally through diet, you need to know what causes yeast infections, or Candida, as they are also called...

The thing that causes the actual symptoms is a naturally occurring yeast-like fungus called Candida albicans. We all have this type of fungi in our bodies but they are usually kept in check by our friendly bacteria. When this healthy balance between the fungi and your good bacteria is upset then the Candida can 'overgrow' into a yeast infection.

One of the key triggers for this imbalance is high levels of sugar in the blood. This is because sugar feeds the fungi. Another key issue is your friendly bacteria becoming depleted. This can happen by the taking of antibiotics which can kill-off the good bacteria as well as the bad bacteria. But how does adjusting your diet affect these underlying issues?

Well, the sugar is obvious. So you need to avoid or to seriously reduce your sugar intake. And bear in mind that this includes things like artificial sweeteners, honey, jams, sweets, chocolates, etc., and most tinned fruits and foods. Another source of sugar are refined carbohydrates which eventually produce sugar as they break down in your digestive system. So avoid or reduce things like white flour and rice, pasta, refined breakfast cereals, corn-flour, etc.

Much farmed meat and poultry has added antibiotics and other additives that can aid Candida growth. So it's best to change to organic meat, poultry, eggs, fruit, vegetables and fish. This includes everyday dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, milk, etc. So eat only organic dairy produce; soya milk, almond milk, oat milk, soya-based cheeses, and natural yogurt. Unsweetened natural yogurt with active cultures is especially good. These cultures are actually beneficial bacteria and can help replenish the good bacteria in your gut.

This is just a short 'snapshop' of one particular facet of preventing yeast infections naturally; diet. But there are other key issues for you to consider because other triggers, or root causes, of infections are hormonal imbalance, some drugs and a lowered immune system. You need to get to know these things, and act on them, to have the very best chance of preventing Candida...

Do You Always Lose Hair With Chemo

If you or a loved has undergone chemotherapy, then you know one of the distressing side effects is hair loss. Usually a temporary condition, nevertheless its one that should be addressed.

A chemo wig isnt about vanity. A persons well-being is intrinsically tied into their outward appearance. Anything that can help boost a chemo patients moral and spirits will go a long way in the ultimate success of their cancer therapy.

Getting a chemo wig to bridge the gap between hair loss and hair re-growth is the sensible thing to do.

But please take this caution, theres a huge difference between one chemo wig and another.

Many people look to the Internet to order their chemo wig. They feel the Internet is more anonymous, and ordering a chemo wig from some website allows the patient to better control their privacy. Here are the problems associated with this assumption:
Your chemo wigs will be a standardized rug. A chemo wig ordered by online catalogue cannot possibly fit your particular scalp. Those chemo wigs fit one thing a manikins head. Each persons scalp has its own nuances and unique shape, and your chemo wig must take that into account.

A chemo wig must be made of quality materials. If you ever wondered why chemo wigs are so cheap over the Internet, its because theyre made cheaply. Yes, the prices look great but once you place that chemo wig on your head, youll understand why they were so inexpensive in the first place.

A chemo wig has to be maintained. Just like natural hair, a chemo wig must be washed and combed. A poor quality chemo wig will look like a birds nest within just a few washings and youll look like a clown wearing it.

A chemo wig should be expertly fitted and styled. When you order a chemo wig online, you get whats offered. You basically have no choice in the matter of styles. The chemo wig comes to you in a box, and what you see is what youre stuck with.

Lastly, your chemo wig must be comfortable! What good is having a chemo wig thats hot, itchy and always bunches up in the wrong places? Thats why so many chemo wigs are worn once or twice, and then go back in the drawer, never to be seen again.

With offices in both wigs Cork and Dublin, Versacchi is one of Irelands most prestigious suppliers of professional quality chemo wigs. Each chemo wig they make for their clients is individually fitted, woven, and styled. Each hair is matched and blended with any existing hair, producing a seamless and undetectable fit. Every chemo wig is also expertly styled to fit your tastes and desires, and not some airbrushed advertising model.

The highest quality materials assure that you can treat your chemo wig as you would your own natural hair. You can wash it, comb it, even go swimming with it. In fact, once your chemo wig is on your head, youll practically forget its there at all its that comfortable to wear.

(About the only difference between a Versacchi chemo wig and your natural growth is that you shouldnt cut the chemo wig hair!)

Of course, your privacy is of paramount importance at Versacchi. No one outside of our trusted team will know you are being fitted for a chemo wig. And to make things as easy as possible, your initial chemo wig consultation is always without cost or obligation.

Hair On Breast Causes

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Who is involved with Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is possible due to the work of thousands of people: staff and trustees, volunteers at head office and volunteer fundraisers across the country, companies and trusts, scientists and health professionals, politicians and journalists, and individuals across the UK who give their time and money to this important cause.

Teams of dedicated researchers and scientists are working across the UK with the goal of understanding the causes of breast cancer and finding a cure for it.

Why was Breakthrough Breast Cancer formed

Breakthrough Breast Cancer began as the vision of one man and his children. Their wife and mother, Toby Robbins, died of breast cancer in 1986.

Their vision was to create a centre of excellence for breast cancer research. With the help of Professor Barry Gusterson of the Institute of Cancer Research they realised a new approach to breast cancer research was needed. From this vision, Breakthrough Breast Cancer came into being.

Due to the work and generosity of individuals, companies, and trusts 15 million was raised, making possible the building of the Breakthrough Research Centre, housed in the Mary-Jean Mitchell Green Building, another wife and mother who died from breast cancer.

Through determination, hard-work, and diligence the Breakthrough Research Centre was ready for business in only 8 years. It was opened in 1999 by their patron, HRH The Prince of Wales.

At this time, over 120 scientists, under the direction of Professor Alan Ashworth, work in parallel on a coordinated research programme, looking at the causes of breast cancer and how it progresses. They also have links with researchers and clinicians at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital, placing these scientists at the hub of the largest cancer research centre in Europe.

Breakthrough Generations

Breakthough Generations is the largest and the most comprehensive cohort study into the causes of breast cancer ever undertaken. It involves over 100,000 women in the UK and will continue over 40 plus years.

This enormous undertaken was first discussed in 2002. A pilot-study in 2003 was successful and Breakthough Breast Cancer in partnership with the Institute of Cancer Research agreed to launch a full scale study.

The Generations study was officially begun on 2nd September, 2004 with extensive media coverage. Almost 15,000 women registering an interest to join the study via the website or telephone in the first 24 hours!

In April 2006 the 50,000th participant was recruited.

In March 2009 the 100,000th partiipant was recruited, one year ahead of schedule.

What is the study doing

"This study involves over 100,000 women from the general population from whom information is gathered, at recruitment, about factors that might relate to breast cancer risk or protection. Contact is then kept with these women over time to determine their risks of breast cancer in relation to these factors.

The Breakthrough Generations Study has been designed to investigate the complex interplay of lifestyle, environmental, genetic and hormonal factors acting throughout a woman's life and determine how these affect an individual's risk of developing breast cancer. Pinpointing these factors should be of benefit to present and future generations, and enable women to make informed lifestyle choices."

Most Common Cause Of Cancer

Do you know what cancer is? Do you know that it is very deadly? Cancer is not just a sickness. It attacks almost every organ in our body. Typically, cells only divide themselves if a body requires it to. But when it comes in to a mass division, this will cause tumor.

Ovarian cancer, for instance, is a serious disease which is characterized by the cancer cells spreading in or along the ovary. These three are the most common types of ovarian cancer.

1. Sex Cord Stromal Tumors

It is the rarest of the types of ovarian cancer compared to the other type. It is actually 10% of all the cases of ovarian cancer. This type usually produces sex steroid hormones in an abnormal manner which occurs in the stroma. Consequences of having this type are:

- abnormal bleeding of the vagina
- women's postmenopausal
- abnormal puberty in children

2. Epithelial Ovarian Tumors

It is best described as the cells surrounding the ovaries' surface. This is also the most common of the types of ovarian cancer and usually occurs in adult women. It encompasses 75% of all the cases of ovarian cancer. There are also sub-types of this type of ovarian cancer. These are the following:

Benign - not that severe, noncancerous, usually occurs in young women but it can still be treated
Malignant - cancerous
Invasive carcinoma - same as benign, it is not that relentless
Borderline - has a low-malignant potential, it might also has serous, endometrioid, clear cells or mucinous

3. Germ Cell Tumors

It is the egg producing cells inside the body of the ovary. It usually occurs in children and teen-agers and is kind of rare than Epithelial Ovarian cancer. It is approximately 15% of all the cases of ovarian cancers. It is like testicular cancer. It is curable.

Germ cell tumors have two sub-types. These are the following:

Dysgerminoma - most ordinary germ cell tumor. It was compared to male testicular cancer also known as seminoma.
Nondysgerminomatous tumor - it is also a rare case and also referred to as embryonal carcinoma

Other types of ovarian cancer (rare types):

- Brenner tumors is composed of 2% to %% only of all the cases of ovarian cancer
- Undifferentiated tumors also known as primitive epithelial tumors. The cancer cells are very hard to identify even in the microscope. It is about 15% of all the epithelial tumor cases.
- Transitional cell tumors - it is like carcinoma which is also not that severe and can be treated through chemotherapy.
