Processed foods have the advantage of saving time and this
makes them tempting to people who have a busy lifestyle and for those who don’t
particularly like to cook. Most processed foods also come with a low price tag
that is hard for many consumers to resist. However, at some point we really
need to look at the hidden costs that processed foods have on our health. It is no secret by now that the vast majority of processed
foods are not healthy. In general, they are very low in nutrients, especially
micronutrients like antioxidants and vitamins, while simultaneously being high
on calories. They also contain industrially engineered ingredients that can be
very harmful to the human body. Eliminating all processed foods from your diet may be quite
difficult. However, you can significantly improve your healthy by eliminating
the worst of the processed foods. Below, you will find a list of the 7 most
unhealthy processed foods.
From the 1950s up
through the early 1990s, the specter of nuclear war cast a shadow over the
world like a giant, gloomy mushroom tattoo. Hollywood and our own morbid imaginations
came up with any number of scenarios that would wipe out humanity in a series
of blinding flashes: robots, Russian and American policies of mutually assured
destruction. But Kubrick was probably closest when he imagined the nuclear era
as a game of poker between cocky, absent-minded lunatics. Only he probably
didn't go far enough. After all, he could have never imagined ...
Essentially what we’ll be doing is using the power of
evaporative cooling and a fan to bring down the temperature in your
room. In this case we’ll be using ice water stored in a cooler that will
then cycle through a copper loop in front of a box fan. I’ll leave it to
you to head to Wikipedia to read up on how the process works, it’s not unlike
you sweating to cool down. As for myself, I’ve done enough sweating so I’ll let
the air conditioner do it for me. (Note: this is the perfect project to
do some scrounging and modify your design and tailor to whatever you may have
on hand that would fulfill the same function).
Houses are different. And if some of us are looking for more
expensive, others decide to build a house for themselves ... and, out of scrap
materials. All these houses are quite unusual, and all without exception are
built from unusual materials.
The Geneva Motor Show is a highpoint for the car industry as
it signals the start of the new model launch season. The 2013 edition was
packed with concept cars and visions for future personal mobility but there
were also loads of cars making their production debuts. We therefore present
the Top-10 Geneva show stars you can now place an order for.
Should the Feds put cameras in every house to make sure
toddlers aren’t going to kill their playmates? Such absurd questions are raised
by a study that says toddlers killed more Americans than terrorists in 2013. In the first part of this year, 11 people were killed by
children aged three to six years old - more than the four people killed at the
Boston Marathon bombing.
A modern stadium is a place or venue for (mostly) outdoor
sports, concerts, or other events and consists of a field or stage either
partly or completely surrounded by a structure designed to allow spectators to
stand or sit and view the event. Here is a list of, non-race, notable sports
stadiums, ordered by their capacity, that is the maximum number of spectators
they can normally accommodate.
The trouble with supersonic travel is multifaceted: There’s
the cost, the sound, the efficiency, and the sound - did we mention the sound?
Sonic booms are, not surprisingly, incredibly loud, and what you may not know
(I didn’t) is that aircraft traveling at such speeds are making that noise the
entire time they’re flying. Perhaps it’s not surprising that supersonic flight
has been banned over land, out of concern for people’s well being and worry over
the sound damaging local wildlife. However, when it comes to reducing sonic
booms, two wings are better than one.
Nearly 100 workers at the site of the Infinity Tower
escaped death as excavation work on the 80-floor building was nearing completion. The
incident happened as the workers were assisting the project owners and the
piling contractor with the foundation works on site 20 meters below ground
We’ve all seen our fair share of rocks, and most of them
aren’t that pretty. The ones that are though can be totally mind-blowing. Ryoji
Tanaka, a Japanese photographer and chemist, likes to capture some of the most
striking elements, minerals and compounds in close-up (like the
Uranium-containing cuprosklodowskite you see above) and the results are crazy
When will the law be enforced to all states to provide ample
parkings on the streets? When will people finally learn how to park? As we
shall see in the pictures below, not only women but men are equally bad
drivers. We would wonder when machines will take over to park our cars. Anyhow,
the sooner they come up with some ideas for parking we will have less of these
images for viewing.
Even if they don't have vocal chords, alligators hiss,
grunt, cough, growl and, most famously, bellow, the latter of which is preceded
by an infrasonic signal that actually rolls along the water, causing it to
vibrate or "dance." While the frequency is too low for humans to
hear, it can travel great distances to reach potential mates.
