Too Much Bread Raises Kidney Cancer Risk



HEALTH NEWS BYTE
Wednesday, November 15, 2006
Just as the final nail is being pounded into the coffin of the low-carb diet craze, a new study suggests that there may be important benefits to limiting refined carbohydrate intake. Published in the International Journal of Cancer, the study by Italian researchers warns of a link between high consumption of cereals, breads and other refined carbs and the risk of developing kidney cancer. Researchers monitored more than 2,000 patients over the course of two years, concluding that those with the highest bread and cereal consumption were a stunning 94% more likely to be diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma, the most common kidney cancer. A diet high in pasta and rice also raised the risk of kidney cancer by 29%.

What This Means for You
Meanwhile, stocking up on vegetables and lean meats such as poultry was associated with a one-third lower risk of kidney cancer. Doctors recommended limiting your intake of refined carbs and replacing them with breads and cereals made from whole grains.

I got kicked out TWICE in the same night
Monday. 3.26.07 3:54 am
I went out tonight and had a great time. Now it was time to eat!! Other than dessert, dinner is the best time of the night. I know! Get a life! So anyway... My bff and my daughter and I go to Lucky Strike. It is a nice restaurant with some bowling lanes and good food. We walk up and the guy says that after 7pm you need to be 21 to get in. I got rejected and turned out!

So we now decide to go downstairs to PF Changs. They have good chinese-american food; nice ambiance and linen. So we all order tea and get our own teapot. It was really nice. We order our food then this loud siren goes off and lights are flashing. No, we did NOT win a prize. That was the fire alarm. We thought that maybe someone didnt want to pay their bill so that pulled the alarm.
Shortly after that, the manager comes over and tells us that there was a fire in the kitchen and they cannot cook anything else for the rest of the night. So sorry for us... we will have to leave. WHAT?? We are getting kicked out again!? This is the second time in the same night. Now where are we going to eat? Maybe someone was trying to tell us something!? We were lucky enough to get 10 each to come back on another night and we did not have to pay for the tea.

I have been rejected before but not twice in the same night! ha ha! That was just too much. We ended up at a Yakitori place and we had nice meal. Everything turned out just fine!

Mika Nakashima
Thursday. 12.21.06 1:03 pm


Born in Kagoshima-Ken, Kyushu, Japan, she had always dreamed of becoming a singer since she was a child. She decided not to attend high school, and pursued her dream in a musical career. The very first demo-tape she sent to a record company had given her the chance. She was chosen out of 3000 girls, as the heroine of the 2001 fall season drama, Kizudarake no Love Song (Scarred Love Song) of the Fuji TV station. In November, she made her debut from Sony Music Associated Records, with the song "Stars", which was also the theme song of the drama. Her second single "Crescent Moon", an 80's themed song, was a limited product of 100,000 copies only. Amazingly, it sold out the first day of its release. In March of 2002 she released her third single "One Survive" (which received great feedback) and her first video "Film Lotus", in May her 4th single "Helpless Rain", in August her 5th single "Will" was released, tying-up to the sales of over 200,000 and Top Ten hits.

Her first album True released in August 2002 was a #1 hit in the Oricon charts. In only 3 weeks, True became a million seller. Then as commemoration of one year since her debut, Mika released a Premium EP Resistance, which hit the charts #1 spot two weeks in a row. On December 18, a documentary video Kiseki: the document of a start was released.

Mika has won her a vivid public recognition and aroused the excitement in many listeners of her generation. It was not a surprise that 2002 was a great year for Mika as she received "New Artist of the Year" from The Japan Gold Disc Awards, "Best New Artist of the Year" from All Japan Request Awards 2002, and "New Artist of the Year" from the 44th Japan Record Awards.

Mika became one of the most popular female vocalists in Japan. Her most popular songs include Gundam Seed's ending song "Find the Way", "Sakurairo Maukoro", and "Yuki no Hana" which was covered by Korean male singer Hyo-Shin Park and this covered song is inserted in popular Korean drama Mianhada Saranghada (Sorry, I Love You). It was also one of the most popular karaoke songs in Japan in 2004. In 2004 she sang the ending theme of the anime series based on the manga Hi no tori as aired on NHK.

In 2005 she costarred alongside Aoi Miyazaki in the live-action movie Nana, based on the manga of the same name, which was released September 10, 2005. Mika also sang one of the theme songs for the movie, which was released as a single under the name "Nana starring Mika Nakashima". The single, titled "Glamorous Sky" was written by the manga's author, Ai Yazawa and composed by L'Arc~en~Ciel frontman Hyde. It was Mika's first #1 single on Oricon charts. The single has sold over 423,000 copies making it the best-selling female single of the year and the tenth highest selling overall. The single continued selling well into the next year and sold 442,000 copies, which was about 25,000 copies less then her Nana co-star, Yuna Ito's "Endless Story".

Mika was recently nominated at the MTV Video Music Japan as "Best BuzzAsia from Japan" for "Amazing Grace '05", and the "Glamorous Sky" video was nominated as "Best Female Video" and "Best Video from a Film". She won the "Best Video from a Film" award.

Due to the success of Nana, a sequel will be released in December, 2006 as well as new songs by Mika under the name Nana starring Mika Nakashima. The theme song to Nana 2 movie is "Hitoiro", which is also written by Yazawa, while the music is composed by Glay's leader Takuro, who is also the author of the coupling song "Eyes For The Moon". Besides the single, Mika will release the mini-album The End, featuring all her songs under the name Nana starring Mika Nakashima.

***** NANA 2 COMES OUT THIS WEEK. I AM GOING TO HUNT IT DOWN. :)
