A COMPLICATED NETWORK of fluid-filled nodes, vessels, glands and organs, the lymphatic system touches almost every part of the body. Although we may not feel or see it, it’s one of the most important (and often forgotten) systems of the human body. Just like the liver, kidneys, and mouth, it’s important to give the lymph the attention it deserves.
The lymphatic system’s main function is to cleanse toxins and protect against harmful invaders. It works by carrying our body’s waste away from the tissues and into the bloodstream. It tackles toxins that are introduced to the body from both external means (food, air, personal care products, water) as well as internal ones (damaged proteins and cellular/metabolic waste), making it a key detoxification pathway. Once the toxins enter the bloodstream, they are purified through the largest lymphatic tissue in the body, the spleen. The spleen is our main immune defense, fighting infection, holding a reserve of red and white blood cells and destroying worn-out red blood cells in the body.
Through lymph nodes and the lymphatic network, your immune cells can travel around fighting pathogens, such as bacteria and mold, and preventing disease and infection. This is why keeping your lymphatic system functioning properly is directly related to the overall health of the body: a stronger lymphatic system means a more resilient and reactive immune response and defense.
The problem is that, unlike blood, lymph does not have a pump. It relies on the relaxation and the contraction of the muscles and joints to move it. Your lymphatic system can easily become stagnant, especially when it becomes overwhelmed with toxic debris. This not only leads impaired immunity and disease, but the development of cellulite, edema (fluid retention), chronic pain and fatty deposits.

When your business is Assassination by Contract, who can you trust? Directed by Chris Kohout and Starring Erich Michel.
It’s been almost a year since the Goddess Belldandy came to live with college student Keiichi Morisato, and he’s almost gotten up the nerve to kiss her. Unfortunately, the encounter with the Lord of Terror damaged some clerical systems, and the contract binding Belldandy and Keiichi is among the lost data. The lovebirds can only hope the information can be retrieved before the Almighty One orders Belldandy back to Heaven.

There is no human rights in the city of Wuhan in China.Some government departments of Wuhan have no any honor.The government department contracted with us,but it didn't perform at all.
In 2002, the government of Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone authorized Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group Co.,LTD, to requisition area where we lived, for bussiness estate devoloping. The government of Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone was boss. Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group Co.,LTD was an employee, worked for the government.
At that time, Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group contracted with us for purchasing our houses. It agreed to give us 400 RMB (about 50 dollars) per square meter as compensation fee, and agreed to give us a piece of land for rebuilding house,the superficial measurements of the land is as the same as our house bofore,and we could build 3 and a half floors. Though the compensation fee was very low, we accepted and contracted with it.
We asked for a contract as an evidence, but Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group Co.,LTD refused. It said that all of 4 contracts must be take back to accept the manager's verify, a contract would be given back to each family soon. Why didn't it give the contracts to us, we didn't think too much. We believed Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group, believed the government of Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone. Would they break the contract? We didn't believe. After all it was the action of the government.
We teared down our houses, and moved away. And we expected it gave us the piece of land quickly, so we could rebuild our houses. Half a year later, in 2003, the government of Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone announced that,they wouldn't give us land for rebuilding house. They had decided break the contract.
Where is the honor of the government? Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Group Co.,LTD is too ignoble. The government of Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone is too ignoble.

Today in entertainment, the writer's strike is OFFICIALLY OVER! plus controversory over the 2008 olympics and star wars returns to the big screen!
Hi everyone! i'm Andrea rene for get the daily**** and you're watchign the entertainment update.
Its over! Its really over! After 100 days of talk show reruns, missing episodes of favorite sitcoms, and SNL free Saturdays, the Writer's guild of America voted yesterday to lift their strike on Hollywood. It was the worst labor dispute in Tinsel Town in over 2 decades, and it isn't completely finished yet. THe members of the WGA still need to vote on the tentative contract that would give writers payments for their work streamed online plus they'll get double rates for film and tv work sold as internet downloads. And it will also extend the contract for content made specifically for the web. Many writers will be returning to work today, expect to see familiar spots on late night talk shows and daytime ones as well, but as previously reported, your favorite dramas and sitcoms won't be back until April.
Academy award winning director Steven Spielberg has stepped down from his artistic advisor position for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Bejing. The legendary director of "Schindler's List" said the reason for his withdrawal is because he does not support China's policy on Darfur, a region of Sudan. China has long been accused of aiding rebels efforts to keep peacekeepers out of the war ravaged region, where thousands of civilians are being murdered or driven from their homes. Many activists are calling for China to step up to the plate and make some changes in their Sudan policies before they try to play host for the Olympics, one of the world's greatest venues for peace. So far China has given no intentions of changing their policy, and have even said they will not submit to foreign pressure.
Star Wars fan listen up! Creator George Lucas has previously said there will be no more stars wars films, but he LIED! The iconic series will hit the big screen again this summer, but it will be a little different this time. Lucas has announced he will release an animated film called "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," as a precursor the new animated series set to debut this fall. Lucas said he felt like there was a lot of the story left to tell, and he wanted to do that through the art of animation. If you want to learn more about the new series and the film, you can check out web only documentaries on starwars****.

Song - "Just Passing Through the Life" -
There is no universal definition of life; there are a variety of definitions proposed by different scientists. To define life in unequivocal terms is still a challenge for scientists.
Conventional definition: Often scientists say that life is a characteristic of organisms that exhibit the following phenomena:
Homeostasis: Regulation of the internal environment to maintain a constant state; for example, sweating to reduce temperature.
Organization: Being composed of one or more cells, which are the basic units of life.
Metabolism: Consumption of energy by converting nonliving material into cellular components (anabolism) and decomposing organic matter (catabolism). Living things require energy to maintain internal organization (homeostasis) and to produce the other phenomena associated with life.
Growth: Maintenance of a higher rate of synthesis than catalysis. A growing organism increases in size in all of its parts, rather than simply accumulating matter. The particular species begins to multiply and expand as the evolution continues to flourish.
Adaptation: The ability to change over a period of time in response to the environment. This ability is fundamental to the process of evolution and is determined by the organism's heredity as well as the composition of metabolized substances, and external factors present.
Response to stimuli: A response can take many forms, from the contraction of a unicellular organism when touched to complex reactions involving all the senses of higher animals. A response is often expressed by motion, for example, the leaves of a plant turning toward the sun or an animal chasing its prey.
Reproduction: The ability to produce new organisms. Reproduction can be the division of one cell to form two new cells. Usually the term is applied to the production of a new individual (either asexually, from a single parent organism, or sexually, from at least two differing parent organisms), although strictly speaking it also describes the production of new cells in the process of growth.

Xango Glimpse Pre-Launch webinar
The jam-packed webinar with 500K XanGo Premiers Art and Terry Manville interviewing XanGo Chairman of the Board Gary Hollister and his wife Beverly Hollister, creator of the new Glimpse skin care!
If you weren't excited about the launch of Xango Glimpse this November, you will be after watching this webinar.
How many personal care products did you use this morning? Soap, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, shaving cream, after shave lotion, body lotion, moisturizer, lip balm, sunscreen . . . Most people use these products without a second thought. Most of us believe that the government is policing the safety of mixtures in many beautifully designed bottles sold at drug stores, high-end department stores.
Who regulates the personal care industry/cosmetics?
The $20 billion -a-year cosmetic industry gets to “police itself” through a group called the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board which is funded by its trade association - the Cosmetics, Toiletries, Fragrance Association - CTFA. The cosmetics industry, like the tobacco industry has managed to escape any regulation. The Cosmetic Industry Review Board has ONLY assessed 13% of ingredients in personal care ingredients.
Is what the average American applying to their skin affecting their health?
People apply an average of 126 “unique” ingredients on their skin daily. It gets absorbed through the skin or it can also go down the drain to create an impact on wildlife, rivers and streams. Accumulated toxins in people is what is contributing to our increased sensitivities, illnesses, cancers, etc. We have to ask ourselves as we are applying ingredients onto our body that are toxic, what is it doing to our health? The National Cancer Association is reporting yearly that 1:2 men and 1:3 women are reporting some form of cancer.
Are ingredients banned?
In the US we have banned 10 chemicals from personal care products. The European Union has banned 1100 or more chemicals from their personal care products. The European Union also wants to require chemical companies to test chemicals for health effects before they are put on the market. Our present Administration has been working to stop Europe from passing these protective laws.
Scientists have found many common cosmetic ingredients in human tissues, including industrialized plasticizers called phthalates in urine, and preservatives called parabens in breast tumor tissue. By the way, phthalates are in most fragrances and are not labeled within a fragrance listing - whether it is a perfume, body lotion, after shave, etc.
THE GOOD NEWS
The Environmental Working Group has researched and advocated on personal care product safety for 5 years now and will continue to strengthen our system of public health protection from industrial chemicals. The EWG has compiled an electronic database of ingredient labels for 29,000 name brand products and cross-linked it with 50 toxicity or regulatory databases.
The EWG has created a safe cosmetics contract called “compact for Safe Cosmetics” which is signed by Eminence and 500 other skin, hair and body companies. These companies ensure that all of the cosmetics and personal care products made by a company anywhere in the world meet the formulation standards and deadlines set by the European Union Directive to be free of chemicals that are known to be or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation or birth defects. By the way, many of the OTC (over the counter ie: department stores, grocery stores, drug stores and direct marketing companies) have NOT signed the contract. It is easy for companies to reformulate. It just costs more money.
Eminence Organics has always been organic and has not used chemicals to give the products their 1 year shelf life. Presently, Eminence uses salicylic acid from white willow bark, benzoic acid from bitter almond oil, lactic acid from fermented potatoes and tomato seed in the biocomplex formulations.

Dangerous chemicals to remove from your cabinets! SMALL EXPOSURES CAN ADD UP TO HARM
The cosmetics industry says the minimal exposure levels make toxic chemicals safe. But none of us use just one product. Think about how many products you use in a single day— from toothpaste to soap, shampoo, hair conditioner, deodorant, body lotion, shaving products and makeup—and how many products you use in a year. If the body is unable to process and eliminate the toxic chemicals that so many of the products contain, the toxins can accumulate in the body, leading to serious disease and potential birth defects. Here are the primary toxic ingredients that many health experts recommend to avoid:
1. Methyl, Propyl, Butyl and Ethyl Paraben — Found in a broad variety of deodorants, skin and hair products, parabens extend the shelf life of products by inhibiting microbial growth. Studies have shown that these substances are absorbed through the skin. While rare allergic reactions can include skin rashes, the estrogenic qualities of parabens have scientists concerned about implications for endocrine disorders including hormonal imbalance. Parabens have been found in human breast tissue.
2. Diethanolamine (DEA), Triethanolamine (TEA) — Often used in cosmetics as emulsifiers and/or foaming agents. They can cause allergic reactions, eye irritation and dryness of hair and skin. DEA and TEA are "amines" (ammonia compounds) and can form cancer-causing nitrosamines when they come in contact with nitrates.
3. Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea — These widely used preservatives commonly found in skin care, body care, hair care products, antiperspirants and nail polish, are two “formaldehyde donors.” Formaldehyde-based chemicals are great preservatives as any mortician knows, but for live human consumption less dangerous preservatives exist. Exposure to formaldehyde can result in joint pain, allergies, depression, headaches, chest pain, dizziness, or even function as asthma triggers. Serious side effects include the weakening of the immune system, and as usual, cancer.
4. Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate — A cheap, harsh detergent used in shampoos and toothpaste for its cleansing and foam-building properties. Although derived from coconuts, the not-so-natural process uses sulphuric acid that is often a coal mining waste product. It causes eye irritation, skin rashes and other allergic reactions. More serious is SLS’s degenerative effect on the cell membranes. SLS denatures the protein found in hair or skin, and is absorbed into the system where the mutagen can concentrate in the heart, liver or brain.
5. Petrolatum — Also known as petroleum jelly, this dirt cheap mineral oil derivative is used for its emollient properties in cosmetics. This “moisturizer” coats the skin like plastic wrap. This interferes with the body's own natural moisturizing and detoxifying mechanism, and can lead to dryness and chapping, retention of toxins and premature aging.
6. Propylene Glycol — A very beneficial product -- for your car's radiator. The active ingredient in antifreeze is used as a surfactant (or wetting agent) in body care products, including toothpaste, makeup and deodorants. Due to toxicity, the EPA requires workers to wear protective gloves, clothing and goggles when working with it. Propylene glycol breaks down protein and cellular structure, and direct contact can cause brain, liver and kidney abnormalities. Stick deodorants are higher in concentration of PG than is allowed for most industrial use!
7. PVP/VA Copolymer — A petroleum-derived chemical used in hairsprays, styling aids and other cosmetics is toxic when particles are inhaled into the lungs of sensitive persons.
8. Stearalkonium Chloride — A toxic quaternary ammonium compound developed by the fabric industry as a fabric softener, it is found in hair conditioners and creams. SC is a less expensive hair conditioner than proteins or herbals, but is known to causes allergic reactions.
9. Synthetic Colors — Used to make cosmetics "pretty," synthetic colors, along with synthetic hair dyes, should be avoided at all costs. Many cause skin sensitivity and irritation, or even oxygen depletion in the blood. They will be labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and a number. Example: FD&C Red No. 6 / D&C Green No. 6. Many synthetic colors can be carcinogenic.
10. Synthetic Fragrances — The simple ingredient label “fragrance” in cosmetics can be a complex cocktail of as many as 200 chemical ingredients. This disclosure loophole leaves no way to know what chemicals are ingredients, and some of these compounds are associated with symptoms including skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, rash, hyper-pigmentation, violent coughing, vomiting — and so on. Advice: Don't buy a cosmetic that has the word "fragrance" on the ingredients label. Phthalates(#11 on this list) are often unlabeled but included as a fragrance ingredient.
11. Phthalates - These plasticizing chemicals found in some nail polishes, fragrances and hair sprays. are probable human reproductive or developmental toxins and endocrine disrupters. Two phthalates often used domestically in cosmetics (dibutyl and diethylhexyl) have been banned in the European Union.
12. Hydroquinone - Found in some skin lightening products and moisturizers, this possible carcinogen and probable neurotoxin, hydroquinone can also cause a skin disease called ochronosis, which leaves irreversible black-blue lesions on the skin.
13. Nano-particles - Extremely tiny particles found in some eye shadows, bronzers, sunscreens and lotions, nano-particles are largely untested and unlabeled in personal care products. Due to size, they are capable of being absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
14. Mercury - Often listed as Thimerisol among ingredients of some eye drops, ointments and mascaras, mercury is a human reproductive or developmental toxin and possible human carcinogen.
15. Placenta - The body’s production of progesterone, estrogen and other hormones is enhanced by placenta sometimes found in hair relaxers, moisturizers and toners. This can interfere with the body’s normal hormone function and can lead to serious health problems, including breast cancer.
