        Hold it right there! Suppose I only need half an onion for my recipe. So I cut an onion into half, cook one half, while I store the other half on the shelf / refrigerator. You mean to say that's fatal?



The facts

Sauteed Onion

        Among those 28 individuals, one died 6 months later in the hospital, while 12 others required mechanical ventilation to support their breathing.

"Good" cholesterol goes "bad": A fatal turn

"Good" cholesterol goes "bad": A fatal turn

By: Arlene Gentallan



        High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is known as the "good cholesterol" because it removes "bad cholesterol" known as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) from the blood  stream. By doing so, HDL "good cholesterol" prevents LDL "bad cholesterol" from building-up fatty plaque (atherosclerosis) within the walls of the arteries.

        High levels of "good cholesterol" is linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.


...But as it turns out, high levels of "good cholesterol" isn't good for everyone.



It's in your genes


        Inevitably, our genes can influence our health. People who possess the genetic variant "P376L" on their genes have unusually higher-than-normal levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) "good cholesterol" which increases their risk of cardiovascular disease.

By: Arlene Gentallan

        Cinnamon doesn't just make amazing teas and delicious cinnamon rolls, it's also packed with health benefits. In fact, this popular spice has been used as an alternative medicine since the ancient times.

        So the next time you indulge yourself with this treat, you know you're taking full advantage not only of it's flavour and fragrance



A word of caution


        But before you indulge on cinnamon, a word of caution, cinnamon contains coumarin, a fat-soluble anticoagulant compound which our body stores. High doses of coumarin in the body can damage kidneys and liver!



High doses of cinnamon is toxic to the body

        Avoid cinnamon cassia since it contains larger amount of coumarin. Cinnamon cassia is ironically the most widely available type of cinnamon in the market.

        It is recommended to use ceylon cinnamon (also known as "true" cinnamon) instead which contains lesser coumarin.
