When we wake up, the first thing that comes to put mind is what to have for breakfast. After finishing it, we start thinking about lunch and then about dinner. This shows that food is one of the most important parts of our lives. One day we skip a meal, and our body starts reacting in a different way. While what we eat matters, another thing that plays a part is when we eat our meals. The time of having breakfast, lunch and dinner are vital to determine many health benefits. There is a common saying, “Early to bed, early to rise, makes us healthy, wealthy and wise.” Let’s turn it up a little and say, early dinner and early breakfast are all you need to be healthy and smart. Let’s look at the correct timing of having different meals and how it benefits our body. Timing Breakfast: Breakfast is the first meal of the day which makes our guts wake up.

Performing an abortion will be a felony in Oklahoma once a bill signed into law Tuesday by Governor Kevin Stitt takes effect in August after it passed through the state House last week. The new law would put medical professionals who perform abortions at risk of being charged with a felony and possibly facing up to 10 years in prison and up to $100,000 in fines. The only exception provided in the bill is for abortions performed because the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother. Dozens of states have introduced or passed bills placing restrictions on abortion ahead of a highly anticipated Supreme Court ruling in a suit fighting a Mississippi abortion ban that some have warned could significantly alter or overturn the legal precedent set by Roe v. Wade in 1973. The new Oklahoma law has been condemned by reproductive rights groups and Democratic lawmakers, with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki saying in a statement that the "unconstitutional attack on women's … [Read more...] about Oklahoma abortions set to be felonies after Governor Kevin Stitt signs bill
The chances that new background check measures for purchasing firearms will pass Congress are "less than 50-50," Democratic Senator Chris Murphy said Friday. However, it's legislation he's still trying to lead to fruition through conversations with White House officials, including President Donald Trump. This despite Trump's public stance on gun control measures, such as increased background checks, changing nearly every day as lawmakers discuss what steps will be taken to address gun violence once they return from August recess in two and a half weeks. "I am skeptical that these efforts are going to bear fruit. It's very hard to negotiate with this White House when the president's public positions seem to change by the day," the Connecticut senator told reporters in his home state. "I'm sure there will be some people who will say I'm naive to think that we're going to end up getting a proposal through that will significantly expand background checks and be able to get 60 votes in … [Read more...] about Why Democrat Chris Murphy remains optimistic, but isn’t holding his breath for increasing background checks on gun sales
In his leaked draft Supreme Court opinion, Justice Samuel Alito argues that overturning Roe v. Wade would allow “women on both sides of the abortion issue to seek to affect the legislative process.” If women in a post-Roe era don’t like state laws that restrict abortion access, or laws that preserve the right to have an abortion, Alito envisions a world in which they can step up and change them. Women can vote, he pointed out, and often do so in higher numbers than men. They can lobby and run for office. But advocates for voting access and civil rights say that Alito’s depiction does not account for the parts of the country, particularly in the South, where laws make it harder for the poor and voters of color to cast their ballots, and where racially polarized voting can make it more difficult for abortion rights candidates to gain ground. How states will proceed if Roe v. Wade is overturned May 3, 2022 02:35 Southern states … [Read more...] about Alito says overturning Roe gives women a voice on abortion. In the South, it’s not that simple.

A woman who expected to pay $1,337 for surgery at a Westminster hospital but was billed $303,709 may be off the hook for the massive bill after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled in her favor Monday. The justices unanimously found that the contracts patient Lisa French signed before a pair of back surgeries in 2014 at St. Anthony North Health Campus do not obligate her to pay the hospital’s secretive “chargemaster” price rates, because the chargemaster — a list the hospital’s sticker prices for various procedures — was never disclosed to French and she had no idea the chargemaster existed when she signed the contracts. At the time, the hospital had represented to French that the surgeries were estimated to cost her $1,337 out of pocket, with her health insurance provider covering the rest of the bill. But the hospital’s estimate was based on French’s insurance provider being “in-network” with the hospital, which it was not. A hospital employee gave a mistaken estimate after … [Read more...] about Colorado Supreme Court rules in favor of woman who expected to pay $1,337 for surgery but was charged $303,709
When the COVID-19 emerged in China, sparking a pandemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans, the transmission was linked to food. Initial cases were traced back to a seafood market in the city of Wuhan, and gradually, concerns about the virus being passed on through non-vegetarian food, Chinese cuisine, food delivery and packaging became prevalent. Food-related behaviour of the general population was certainly altered during the pandemic, and an online questionnaire-based study covering 600 respondents in both urban and rural areas showed that ‘immunity’, ‘supplements’ and ‘vegetable cleaners’ were among the top-searched terms on the internet during that period. The study, taken up by the Indian Council of Medical Research-National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) here, aimed to evaluate the trend of COVID-associated food and nutrition news search by Indian internet users between January 27, 2020, and June 30, 2021, and its impact on their perceptions and practices. The rise in … [Read more...] about Infodemic in pandemic: how COVID influenced food choices
