1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
8. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
9. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.
We should prevent this without necessarily spending more.
We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits.
Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'
The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easily. So, the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game.
The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists, saying that the game is a lot of fun...."I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5.00. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00," he says.
This catches the senior's attention and, to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?"
The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"
The lawyer uses his laptop to search all references he can find on the Net.
He sends E-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up.
He wakes the senior and hands him $500.00. The senior pockets the $500.00 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.

Apa yang anda akan baca di bawah ini mungkin akan mengejutkan. Malah mungkin ada yang tidak mahu menerima kenyataan. Realiti kadangkala sememangnya pahit untuk ditelan.
Tetapi inilah pendirian TSM sejak dari dulu lagi. Meskipun kami menerima bantahan dan kecaman dari pelbagai pihak, kami tetap degan pendirian kami. Kebenaran tetap akan kami dedahkan. Contohnya dalam isu rokok, detox rendam kaki, gelang magnet, rokok elektronik dan sebagainya. Sesungguhnya kebenaran itu berada pada kedudukannya yang tersendiri dan tidak akan mampu digugat oleh apa-apapun.
Dalam membongkar kebenaran, kami tidak akan menyebelahi kepentingan mana-mana pihak. Baik atau buruk, ia perlu didedahkan agar semua orang tahu. Kolagen adalah sejenis protein. Terdapat lebih 25 jenis kolagen yang terhasil secara semulajadi di dalam tubuh manusia. Ia membentuk 30% dari jumlah protein dalam tubuh manusia. Tidak dinafikan ia sangat penting untuk tubuh. Ia berfungsi seperti gam pelekat yang melekatkan seluruh bahagian tubuh kita. Seringkali kolagen dikaitkan dengan kesihatan kulit. Ia membantu melambatkan proses penuaan.
Bukan membuatkan kulit yang berkedut kembali tegang. Kenyataan ini sepatutnya diambil perhatian. Bagaimanapun, apabila usia semakin meningkat, degradasi kolagen akan berlaku dan akhirnya menimbulkan kedutan.
Oleh sebab itu, ramai pakar kesihatan kulit menasihatkan supaya mengambil langkah untuk merangsang pengeluaran kolagen. Ia dapat memperlahankan proses kedutan. Salah satu caranya ialah mengambil makanan yang tinggi khasiat menghasilkan kolagen di dalam tubuh. Itu tidak bermakna makanan itu 'mengandungi' kolagen. Rumpai laut yang mendapat sambutan hangat di pasaran hari ini ialah jenis agar yang diekstrak dari spesis Eucheuma Gelidium.
Ia sebenarnya sudah lama digunakan dalam masakan terutama untuk membuat kueh agar-agar. Hari ini, disebabkan penyebaran kononnya ia mengandungi kolagen, ia semakin mendesak orang ramai untuk mendapatkannya malah harganya kini meningkat.
Ia mendapat sambutan di kalangan mereka yang inginkan kulit kelihatan cantik dan licin terutamanya golongan wanita. Seperti biasa masyarakat mudah tertipu dengan apa saja iklan menggunakan teori saintifik yang cuba mengelirukan pengguna.
Pencarian TSM tidak menemui apa-apa maklumat tentang kandungan "kolagen" di dalam rumpai laut. Setakat ini tiada kajian saintifik yang mendapati rumpai laut mengandungi kolagen. Malah zat-zat yang membantu menghasilkan kolagen yang banyak boleh ditemui dalam vitamin C seperti buah-buahan citrus, bukan dalam rumpai laut.
Buah-buahan itu sendiri tidak mengandungi kolagen. Agak pelik bagaimana mereka boleh mendakwa rumpai laut adalah sumber kolagen terbaik? Kolagen tidak hadir begitu saja.
Dakwaan yang mengatakan adanya 'kolagen mentah' dalam rumpai laut adalah salah. Apatah lagi yang mendakwa 'ibu kolagen'. Tiada kolagen yang didapati dalam bentuk mentah.
Orang Jepun yang mula-mula menemui makanan rumpai laut hanya menjadikan ia sebagai sayur-sayuran dan salad dalam hidangan mereka. Jepun tidak memiliki tanah yang luas untuk penanaman, maka mereka beralih kepada sumber lautan.
Iklan-iklan di laman-laman web penjual rumpai laut yang membezakan gambar pengguna sebelum dan selepas jelas menunjukkan dua situasi yang berbeza.
Gambar 'SEBELUM' diambil dengan 'cameraphone' dalam keadaan kurang cahaya (underexposure) menyebabkan wajah kelihatan gelap dan kusam manakala gambar 'SELEPAS' pula diambil dalam keadaan cahaya terang (overexposure) menjadikan wajah kelihatan cerah 'berseri'. Ia tidak memerlukan manipulasi digital menggunakan perisian Adobe Photoshop, hanya olahan cahaya sekitar.
Ini jelas suatu bentuk penipuan. Bagi TSM dan mereka yang tahu teknik dalam fotografi, ia tentu mudah untuk dijelaskan. Penghaslilan ProdukRumpai laut digunakan untuk menghasilkan tiga hydrocolloids iaitu agar, alginat dan carrageenan.
Hydrocolloids ialah bahan yang larut dalam air untuk memberikan kelikatan, membentuk gel, untuk menstabilkan produk seperti ais krim (ia menghalang pembentukan kristal supaya ais boleh kekalkan tekstur licin).
Produk kosmetik seperti krim dan losyen kadang-kadang melabelkan kandungan "ekstrak marin", "ekstrak alga", "ekstrak rumpai laut" malah ada yang lebih berani melabelkannya sebagai "marine collagen".
Ini mungkin menunjukkan ia mengandungi salah satu hydrocolloids yang diekstrak dari rumpai laut. Alginat dan carrageenan boleh meningkatkan sifat-sifat pengekalan lembapan pada kulit.
Yang jelas, ia tidak boleh membuatkan wajah anda kembali remaja setelah kulit anda berkedut. Malah kajian terhadap beberapa spesies rumpai laut kelp, wakame dan nori mendapati ia baik untuk merawat kanser dan thyroid, bukan untuk awet muda.
Hari ini, sudah ada pengusaha produk minuman mendakwa minuman mereka mengandungi kolagen...inilah salah satu perkara yang paling melucukan yang pernah di dengar di abad ini. Ia juga mungkin penipuan terbesar abad ini.
Pihak berkuasa sepatutnya lebih tegas dalam menguatkuasakan akta pelabelan produk makanan dan minuman.
Jika anda ingin terus menggunakannya, anda boleh teruskan. Sekurang-kurangnya kulit anda sentiasa kekal lembap dan anda dapat khasiat seperti makan sayur-sayuran. Cuma anda membelanjakan wang yang lebih untuk mendapatkan khasiat sayur-sayuran sedangkan orang lain hanya membelanjakan beberapa ringgit untuk membeli sayuran di pasar.
Dari Mana Untuk Dapatkan Kolagen
Kolagen tidak boleh didapati begitu saja. Anda tidak boleh mendakwa anda mendapat kolagen dengan memakan 'kolagen'. Ia tidak semudah itu. Jika ada orang mendakwa sedemikian, dia mungkin berjenaka atau dia tidak pernah belajar ilmu biologi.
Dakwaan tentang kolagen mentah, kolagen asli atau ibu kolagen dari rumpai laut sebenarnya tidak berasas.
Ia sesuatu yang diada-adakan.Orang yang tidak tahu apa-apa tentu mudah diperdaya.
Tambahan pula terdapatnya iklan syarikat TM menunjukkan seorang pengusaha rumpai laut yang berjaya di TV. Ia mungkin sedikit sebanyak telah mempengaruhi pemikiran pengguna bahawa "rumpai laut suatu produk yang bagus dan mendapat sambutan luarbiasa sehingga ke luar negara."
Sebenarnya tiada apa yang ajaib tentang rumpai laut. Walaupun ia mengandungi nutrien dan faedah kesihatan, terdapat banyak lagi produk lain dari daratan yang sama atau dapat menandingi khasiatnya.
Kolagen dihasilkan dari dalam tubuh kita. Ia tidak boleh didapati dari luar. Untuk memastikan tubuh kita menghasilkan kolagen, kita perlu mengambil makanan-makanan yang boleh membantu penghasilan kolagen secara semulajadi.
Makanan yang boleh membantu penghasilan kolagen ialah sumber vitamin C seperti buah-buahan citrus, sayur-sayuran, tomato, keju, soya, asid amino, ikan dan telur.
Ingat Cantik, ingat vitamin C.
Ingat juga Tiada Kolagen Dalam Rumpai Laut..

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel." After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.
After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,…
"Who was that?" "It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"
Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish" "Me first! Me first!" says the administration clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone. "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii,relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone. "OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."
Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.
A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,"Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand. But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak." Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."
Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him,"Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
...A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.
Lesson 5: Power of Charisma
A turkey was chatting with a bull "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, but I haven't got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.
Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
Moral of the story:
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
3. And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut !

"An 87 Year Old College Student Named Rose
The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know.
I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned round to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being.
She said, "Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?"
I laughed and enthusiastically responded, "Of course you may!" and she gave me a giant squeeze.
"Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?" I asked.
She jokingly replied, "I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids…"
"No seriously," I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.
"I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!" she told me.
After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake. We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months, we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this "time machine" as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.
Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.
At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I'll never forget what she taught us. She was
introduced and stepped up to the podium.
As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, "I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know."
As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, "We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop
playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day.
You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.
We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it!There is a huge difference between growing
older and growing up.
If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old.
If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change.
Have no regrets.
The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets."
She concluded her speech by courageously singing "The Rose."
She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives.
At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died
peacefully in her sleep.
Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be .
When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it!
These words have been passed along in loving memory of ROSE.
REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS
