Breath’s Love Affair
Without making any noise, silently breath
stepped into my body
and started to make love within me
Without making any noise,
stepped out of my body
and started to make love without me
but “my mind”, you
why are you making so much noise
why are you disturbing breath
in her love affair
such deep intimate love affair!

the present moment.”

Strawberries May Help Prevent Esophageal Cancer
June is almost half gone. The greatest blessing of this month is eating more berries this year than ever. Because of cold this year there are not enough peaches, nectarine and apricots. I miss peaches and nectarines this year. But I am happy that there are lots of berries around. First time in my life I had fresh mulberries. Thanks to farmers market. Now there more than 7 farmers market in the city of SF.
For the fruit lover who loves sweet and worries about eating too much sugar, I found berries are always good option. Not only blue berries and mull berries and Goji berries and many more kinds of wild berries are very healing but commonly seen around us, these beautiful red color strawberries also has lot health benefits. Of coarse they are very tasty too.
Researchers say that earlier lab experiments found strawberries inhibited cancerous tumors and pre-cancerous cell abnormalities in the esophagus. In one study 36 people with low and high grade cell abnormalities took 60 gm of freeze –dried strawberries/per day. This is equal to 20 oz. of fresh strawberries. After 6 months it was found that severity of abnormalities decreased in 84% of the low-grade group and 66% of the high-grade group. Scientists said that this reduces the chances of cancer of the esophagus. Read more at WebMD.
