games brain speed lumosity gaminig

As the lumosity ads are appearing in Australia I feel sure they are appearing overseas and far more prolifically than here.

What is there about your brain that you feel could do with a boost?

If it's speed you need you will have seen this one on the ads.

Speed Pack

You need to use your vizualisation skills to get up to speed with this one, and do remember they start off easily enough but as you progress they become more and more difficult.

You need to move the camera ( in the game) so that the camera does not overlap, take on the challenge and speed up your brain activity.

Have fun at the same time and watch as you register more and more points as your abilities improve.

Don't be alarmed if you suddenly take a turn for the worse, you win some, you lose some as the old saying goes.

Go for it for your brain and have some fun at the same time, compete with your mates, chances are you'll find some wizard amongst you and the others fall over all too readily.

Great gaming and great improvement in the speed of your brain.


Superfoods for Superbugs?

Fight Superbugs With Food

With antibiotic-resistant superbugs on the rise, many are starting to wonder if diet could play a role in fending them off. The good news is that some foods may boost your immune system to help you fight these potentially deadly strains of bacteria. Take a look at which awesome eats are touted for their superbug-fighting powers.

Superfoods for Superbugs?
By Hope Cristol

Superbugs are on the rise. Can boosting our immune systems with superfoods help protect us?

Before we reveal what experts think, let’s first explain superbugs. They’re drug-resistant organisms, including a strain of staph bacteria known as MRSA. Once considered a hospital-borne disease, MRSA can now be found in in the community -- even in day care centers. And it’s just one of several superbugs threatening the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The alarming trend is largely due to our overuse of antibiotics. But experts say antibiotics in our food supply -- the drugs we give our chickens and cows to keep their infections to a minimum -- are part of the problem, too.

Naturally, we want to do everything we can to protect ourselves from superbugs, but experts differ slightly on the best ways to avoid getting sick. Here are two perspectives: One from Sharecare’s chief medical officer, Keith Roach, MD, and the other from family medicine physician and best-selling author Joel Fuhrman, MD.

Sharecare: Which superfoods should we eat to have a strong immune system?
Dr. Roach: Dietary diversity trumps having lots of one thing, even in high amounts. By having a variety of healthy foods, you’re more likely to get all of what you need so you can avoid deficiencies that may put a hole in your immune system. However, even a healthy immune system can fall victim to bad bacteria.
Dr. Fuhrman: I use the acronym “G-BOMBS” (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds) to describe the foods we should eat each day to achieve maximum immune defenses. A few examples of why G-BOMBS help: Beans are rich in the fiber and resistant starch that feed beneficial gut flora and protect against colon cancer, and mushrooms contain phytochemicals that fight breast cancer and activate several types of immune cells.

Sharecare: Can eating lots of superfoods reduce our risk of contracting a superbug?
Dr. Roach: I always recommend a well-balanced diet with fruits and veggies, like blueberries and kale, along with whole grains and nuts and other important sources of protein, like legumes and fish. But it won’t prevent you from getting a superbug or even a cold -- and it won’t make your sickness less severe. Being healthy overall, getting plenty of sleep and having a good diet probably helps some.
Dr. Fuhrman: A healthy immune system is highly dependent on a healthful diet. In order to infect your cells, a pathogen must evade your body’s many defenses. If you keep these immune defenses working in top condition with plant foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, it is less likely that this will happen. The foods with the most powerful anti-cancer effects also arm our immune system against infection, both bacterial and viral.

Sharecare: How can we protect ourselves from superbugs?
Dr. Roach: The most important way to not get sick is to not to get exposed to superbugs in the first place. Other than that, the answer is hygiene. Your best line of defense is washing hands and following safe food handling strategies, including separate cutting boards for meat and veggies.
Dr. Fuhrman: It is important to avoid the use of antibiotics when not absolutely necessary. Protect yourself by always asking your doctor if the antibiotic is absolutely essential. Hand washing is very important, too. Another positive step is to avoid factory farmed meat, eggs and dairy products. About three-quarters of the antibiotics used in the US are given to farmed animals, a practice that accelerates the emergence of superbugs that can be spread to humans directly.
