From Wikipedia:
20 (twenty) is the natural number following 19 and preceding 21. A group of twenty units is often referred to as a score.
Twenty is a composite number, its proper divisors being 1, 2, 4, 5 and 10. Skipping 2 and adding the other divisors gives 20, hence 20 is a semiperfect number, and since it is not divisible by any of the smaller semiperfect numbers, it is a primitive semiperfect number. 20 is the smallest abundant number that is not a multiple of 3.
It is also the sum of the first four triangular numbers, making it a tetrahedral number.
20 is the atomic number of calcium.
20 is the total number of digits on the human body, which makes it a convenient number system radix; such number systems are called vigesimal. In the former British currency system, there were twenty shillings in a pound.
A polyhedron with twenty faces is an icosahedron.
20 is the number of proteinogenic amino acids that are encoded by the standard genetic code.
Twenty is a village in Lincolnshire.
20 is the code for international direct dial phone calls to Egypt.
Oh, and 20 is the number of my "Explorized" photos: thanks to all visitors!

I did the weekly shopping at a different supermarket this week and was able to buy the Muller Vitality yogurts we always used to get. Since I last bought them they have changed the packaging. Now in single flavour four packs instead of two flavour six packs. The pots are smaller too – 125g instead of 150g. Another case of selling the customer less, usually for slightly more money.

The big questions are, will they taste the same as before and will they measure up to our new favourites from Longley Farm and Dr Oekter’s Onken?

The search for a good fruit yogurt continues.

Matthew tried Onken’s Wholegrain yogurts despite the fact that he’d thought fruit and grain in a yogurt was an odd combination. He assured me that he was pleasantly surprised so I thought I’d give it a go. I have to say I think the combination has nothing to recommend it other than the possibility of boosting my daily fibre intake. Luckily the peach flavour dominates and there are plenty of pieces of fruit. It is just a pity that there are also chewy grains of barley, oats and wheat to get to grips with.

A new one that we haven’t tested yet is the Yeo Valley Blueberry. We have tried other Yeo Valley flavours but I will be very interested to see if the Blueberry flavour manages to meet the required criteria of plenty of fruit pieces, a good flavour and a good consistency.

Drink to your Health.

Coffee, in fact, has four times the antioxidant content of green tea, according to a study conducted in Switzerland by the Nestle Research Center The study found that coffee also outruns cocoa, herbal teas and red wine. Of course, precise antioxidant content varies from cup to cup, depending on the type of bean and the level of “solubles” in the cup, determined by the brewing method, time and amount of coffee used.

Three major, long-term studies, as well as numerous smaller studies, have confirmed coffee’s properties for preventing Type II, or “adult-onset,” diabetes. A new Finnish study found that women who drank three to four cups of coffee a day reduced their diabetes risk by 29%. For men, the reduction was 27%. Those who drank more had higher risk reduction levels — women who drank ten or more cups of coffee daily lowered their risk by 80%, while men had a 55% lower risk.

Another coffee compound has been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer. While scientists had long suspected a connection between coffee and cancer protection, last fall German researchers identified the link. Methylpyridinium is formed in the roasting process from a chemical found naturally in coffee beans. The stronger the coffee, the study also found, the higher the level of the compound, with darker roasts containing two to three times more than medium roasts.

A Brazilian study has determined that drinking a few cups of coffee a day will also increase male fertility. According to scientists at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the caffeine in coffee appears to increase sperm “motility,” that is, the speed at which they move. Since sperm “hyperactivity” is critical to fertilization, heightened motility increases the odds of pregnancy.
Other studies have shown that coffee and caffeine also have a positive influence on mental function. Coffee increases alertness and Improves performance on tests of mental function.

“Overall, the research shows that coffee is far more healthful than it is harmful,” says Tom DePaulis, PhD, research scientist at Vanderbilt University’s Institute for Coffee Studies. “For most people, very little bad comes from drinking it, but a lot of good.”

Summer Cleaning

Because I’m on so much medication and supplements with my assorted "issues" – at the very least taking 15 assorted vitamins, minerals and meds each night – my naturopath suggested I undergo a detox program to flush out my liver, kidneys and adrenal system which have all been pretty much exhausted over years of abuse. If it makes me feel in any way closer to "fresh and clean" inside, I’m all for it!

Christiana Care promotes breast health to Latinas through promotoras

Through Christiana Care, Latinas are learning about breast health and cancer screenings, essential information they can share with others as “promotoras”—promoters of health education—to Delaware’s rapidly growing Hispanic community.

“If you teach someone, then ask her to go talk to her family, her community, you raise awareness that cancer is not a death sentence,” says Nora Katurakes, RN, MSN, OCN, Christiana Care’s manager οf Community Health Outreach and Education.

Josefina Hernandez, 51, knows firsthand how important it is to get an annual mammogram. Her regularly scheduled screening detected Stage 1 breast cancer, an early form of the disease that is highly treatable.

“I would have never found out that I had cancer if I hadn’t had my mammogram,” she says. “Now, I tell my kids, my sisters, my family, so that they will know.”

At a recent workshops at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center and Woodlawn Library, Hernandez and other promotoras-in-training learned facts about breast health and the effectiveness of early detection and treatment in saving lives.

“Culturally, Latinas don’t see a need to go the doctor’s unless we are sick,” says Sharon Gomez, outreach coordinator. “Through the promotoras, we are emphasizing screenings that can detect a problem before someone feels sick.”

Among Hispanic women, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). Hispanic women are 20 percent more likely to die from breast cancer than non-Hispanic white women diagnosed at the same age, often because the cancer is diagnosed at a later stage, according to ACS Cancer Facts. Within the past year, 41.7 percent of Hispanic women had a mammogram, compared to 53 percent of non-Hispanic white women.

Throughout the year, Christiana Care’s outreach staff works with Hispanics and people in other underserved communities to make health care more accessible.

“We frequently get calls from people who do not have insurance and others who do not have primary-care physicians, asking if they can get help,” says Joceline Valentin, a bilingual outreach coordinator at the Community Outreach and Education program at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center. “We tell them ‘yes,’ and that we will meet them at appointments to interpret.”

The Community Health Outreach and Education Department obtained a grant for a lay health educator program from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the NCI National Community Cancer Centers Program. The two-year grant pays for a full-time bilingual community outreach worker. Susan G. Komen for the Cure Philadelphia affiliate also pays for a bilingual outreach coordinator.

In addition to the promotoras, the program includes training medical assistants at federally qualified clinics to promote screenings, starting with breast health and eventually including tests for cervical and colon cancer.

“Our goal is to have 300 people receive screenings as a result of this program,” Katurakes says. “Each one of the promotoras represents a connection in a family network who can reach others we might not otherwise have an opportunity to help.”
