Special Message from James and Jean Sapp. Greetings to you all like us are you also getting ready for Thanksgiving and the holidays? And then of course it's the long downhill race of the Christmas shopping season up until Christmas. Quite frankly I love the holidays and the holiday spirit. I'm just not too fond of all the shopping and emphasis placed on commercialism. That's okay, I just think the relationship and caring aspect sometimes takes a seat behind the commercial aspect and that’s too bad.
Here's something new for our good customers. We have started a valued resource page - if you have some business you would like us to promote on our new valued resource pages (as we create them) you may submit this information to us and we can add a link to your business along with a short description.

Your College Major=How Long You Live?
Can't decide on a college major? Choose science, engineering, or medicine. According to research from Ireland's Queens University in Belfast, students who major in these subjects live the longest.
The study, which was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, examined the medical records and death rates of 8,367 male students at Scotland's Glasgow University who matriculated between 1948 and 1968. It is believed to be the first study to examine the association between university degree subjects and mortality, reports the Financial Times of London. Why there is any correlation at all between field of study and longevity is still not known, and lead researcher Dr. Peter McCarron cautioned that the conclusions in the study are speculative at best.
Here are the highlights by major field of study:
Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Sciences: Medical students lived the longest of all, but they were the most likely to suffer an alcohol-related death. This was also the third most likely field--after law and divinity--to die from an accident, suicide, or violence. Although medical students were the second heaviest smokers while in college, they kicked the habit once they graduated since their death rates from lung cancer were so low.
Science and Engineering: Since these students were least likely to smoke, they had similar mortality rates as the medical students. They also had the lowest heart disease rates overall.
Theology: Although divinity school students had the lowest blood pressure and were the least likely to drink alcohol, they were twice as likely to die from respiratory diseases later in life. Overall, they had a 10 percent greater risk of death than the medical students. Oddly, theology scholars were the most likely of all to succumb to a fatal accident, suicide, or violent death.
Law: Students of the law died the earliest of all majors except liberal arts and social sciences with a 30 percent higher risk of death than the medical students. Their untimely demise can be explained by this: They were the heaviest smokers.
Liberal Arts and Social Sciences: These students, like their friends who studied law, died the earliest, but they were only half as likely as medical students to die by suicide or an accident. However, they were twice as likely as medical students to die of lung cancer due to their propensity to smoke. Overall, their risk of death was 42 percent higher than the medical students.
Drink Soda? Don't Do This For 1 Hour
If you drink a soda to quench your thirst, do not rush to brush after you drain that can.
Why? Carbonated drinks are highly acidic and have the potential to damage a tooth's enamel. Brushing right after you drink can exacerbate this. Instead, wait 30 to 60 minutes to brush, according to new research from dentists at Goettingen University in Germany. Waiting to brush after drinking a soda actually is three to five times more effective at protecting enamel from the erosive effects of carbonated drinks, reports Reuters.
Soda is so acidic that it can actually dissolve the upper layers of the tooth. Thomas Attin, director of the university's department for tooth protection, explained that waiting to brush allows the tooth enamel to mount its own defense against acidic erosion, typically through protective agents in the saliva that help repair and rebuild damaged tooth enamel. Brushing too soon not only destroys this opportunity, but also brushes off the affected layers of the teeth. The research, which was presented at the annual meeting of the German Association for Tooth Protection, was awarded a prize from chewing gum maker Wrigley.
Should you just give up soda altogether and drink juice instead? Maybe not. The dental school faculty at South Africa's University of Stellenbosch did a comparison test on the effects of orange juice, apple juice, Pepsi Cola, and Diet Pepsi. (Although these researchers used Pepsi products, the differences between them and other popular brands of soda--for the purposes of this test on dental health--are not significant.)
While fruit juices definitely provide more vitamins than soda, they are also acidic and that can cause demineralization and softening of the teeth.
HealthScoutNews reports the results: Orange juice and Pepsi were equally harmful to teeth, followed next by apple juice. Diet Pepsi was not only the least likely drink to soften the teeth, but also the least likely to cause cavities.
HEALTH TIPS -Enzymes and Digestion: A Key to Superior Health
"Hello, my name is Ginger Scott "Health Fighter", with some Health Tips for you."
A key for achieving and maintaining peak health is: insuring full and proper digestion of the foods you eat.
By the time we reach the age of thirty or so, our body’s ability to fully and completely digest what we eat has become greatly compromised.
Whereas most food factors, including vitamins, suffer only minor or no demonstrable harm from heat preparation in the kitchen or factory, enzymes are completely destroyed by manufacturing or culinary operations. Enzymes can withstand no cooking, boiling, frying, roasting, stewing, broiling or pasteurizing. Cookery destroys them to the extent of - not 99% but 100%!
Because today's modern diet includes huge amounts of hard-to-digest high-protein foods, as well as numerous enzyme deficient foods, our digestive organs are constantly overworking themselves in an attempt to digest the foods we eat.
In order for the body to digest food completely and effectively, there must be a sufficient quantity of enzymes available. As little as a century ago, when our society was basically agrarian and people still ate plenty of organically grown raw fruits and vegetables as a way of life, incomplete digestion was virtually unknown as a medical problem. That’s because organically grown raw fruits and vegetables contain huge amounts of their own active food enzymes.
These natural enzymes, which are found in all raw foods, begin digesting food the moment it is put into the mouth and is chewed. After the food is swallowed, enzymes continue predigesting the food while it is being held in the upper (cardiac) portion of the stomach (it is held there for an hour or so before it moves to the lower (pyloric) portion (in a sense, we really have two stomachs with two separate and distinct functions) -Ed.), breaking the food down into its most simple state, and releasing the vital nutrients from the food so that our bodies can assimilate and use those nutrients to maintain peak health.
However, today, because of modern agricultural practices which employ a myriad of herbicides, pesticides, synthetic chemicals, etc. and because the soil throughout America’s vast farmland has been leached of much of its vital mineral content, even our raw foods are almost grossly lacking in the important quantities of enzymes necessary for proper food digestion.
What’s more, if the food you eat has been heated to 118 degrees F. or higher, it really doesn’t matter much whether it was organically grown or not, because any enzymes in that food have been totally and completely destroyed. Considering the fact that cooked and heat-processed foods now make up the predominant part of the average American diet, this means that the vast majority of what we eat these days is completely devoid of the vital enzymes that are absolutely essential to the digestive process.
Because of this, the human body ends up severely overtaxing itself in order to produce enough of its own enzymes to aid in the process of digestion. According to Dr. Edward Howell, America’s foremost medical expert on the role of enzymes in digestion and human health, the human body even goes so far as to shift from producing vital metabolic enzymes to producing digestive enzymes, in order to make up for the enzyme deficiencies in the foods we eat.
This works fine for a while - the body in its youth can often handle this problem to a sufficient enough extent to get by without ill effect. But by the time middle age rolls around, the overworked pancreas and other digestive organs can no longer produce sufficient quantities of either the crucial metabolic enzymes or the essential digestive enzymes. In a sense, the body’s enzyme “bank account” becomes so severely overdrawn that the body itself begins to break down prematurely.
Thanks to the pioneering work of medical researchers and biochemists like Dr. Edward Howell, enzymes are now finally beginning to be recognized as the premier element in human health and well-being. Vitamins, minerals and trace elements have long been known to be essential to human health and longevity, but what has only been discovered in the past 50 years or so is the fact that without enzymes, the human body simply cannot utilize vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other nutrients. Enzymes are the body’s nutritional delivery system. Without them in sufficient quantities, nutrients simply cannot be effectively delivered where needed in the human body.
In short, your stamina, energy level, ability to utilize vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and your body’s self-healing immune capability all depend directly upon the quantity of enzymes in the blood, organs and tissues. Without enzymes, not one single metabolic process can continue. In fact, having sufficient numbers of enzymes throughout the body is absolutely essential to the body’s ability to break down toxins, build protein into muscle, eliminate carbon dioxide from the lungs, fend off attack from invading organisms, and much more.
(Whoa! Don't go so fast- sure this article may be boring!!! but it has some valuable information you can benefit from every day that you'll miss!)
The results of mineral malnutrition are: premature aging, declining health and degenerative diseases. Many common "lethal" health conditions (osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer, etc.) could be prevented with proper mineral nutrition. The more you learn about the benefits of minerals, the more you will be able to take charge of your own health. This month's featured mineral is Calcium!
Did you know that the orthophosphoric acid in soft drinks leaches calcium from your body. That is why it is especially important to provide a good calcium supplement like to children especially if they drink a lot of soft drinks.
CALCIUM - Builds strong bones and healthy teeth. Keeps your heart beating regularly. Aids your nervous system, especially in impulse transmission.
Helps in normalizing blood clotting action. Helps metabolize your body's iron. May help prevent bone loss associated with Osteoporosis. More effective when combined with: Vitamins A, C, & D, Iron Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, Silica, Zinc, Boron, Selenium, Chromium, Trace minerals.
Conditions which may benefit from calcium supplementation:
- People with Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) may benefit from calcium. Several clinical studies have shown that calcium supplementation does have a blood pressure lowering effect.
- Heart disease and cholesterol levels: In one study, the daily administration of 2 grams of calcium carbonate (800 mg elemental calcium) over a period of one year, resulted in a 25% reduction in serum cholesterol in men with high cholesterol levels.
- Osteoporosis: Supplementation of calcium has been shown to be effective in reducing age-related bone loss.
The form of calcium taken does matter. The most widely used form of calcium used for supplementation is calcium carbonate. This and other insoluble calcium salts used must be solubilized and ionized by stomach acid. People with insufficient stomach acid (post menopausal women and those people using acid blockers) will only absorb about 4% of an oral dose of calcium. Those with normal stomach acid will absorb about 22%.
Therefore, it is much better to use the forms of calcium already in the soluble and ionized state such as: calcium citrate, calcium lactate or calcium gluconate. (About 45% of calcium citrate is absorbed by people with reduced stomach acid as compared to 4%).
Natural sources of calcium are: milk and milk products (cheese, yogurt), soybeans, sardines, salmon. Peanuts, sunflower seeds, dried beans, green vegetables (kale, broccoli, collard greens) whole grains and unrefined cereals.

All You Ever Wanted to Know About Zucchini Squash, Vegetables and Nutrition.
Zucchini squash is the favored jewel of the summer squashes. Its flavor is light and sweet with flesh as delicate as a flower and texture that makes it almost melt in the mouth.
Summer squashes, as well a winter squashes, are native to the Americas and belong to the family of curcurbita. Archaeologists have traced their origins to Mexico, dating back from 7,000 to 5,500 BC, when they were an integral part of the ancient diet of maize, beans, and squashes.
That pre-Columbian food trio is still the mainstay of the Mexican cuisine and is known today as the "three sisters."
The colonists of New England adopted the name squash, a word derived from several Native American words for the vegetable which meant "something eaten raw." George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were squash enthusiasts who even enjoyed growing them.
Zucchini squashes are very low in calories. There are only 13 calories in a half-cup of raw zucchini.
Nutritionally, zucchinis are rich in valuable antioxidants. Plus contain beta-carotene, vitamin C, folic acid and calcium.
Zucchini squash is also a good source of fiber (4 grams per cup). An adult should get about 30 grams of fiber per day in their diet. One cup of zucchini has nearly as much potassium as a banana. Plus it contains the valuable mineral nutrient phosphorus.
