WORLD LARGEST FOUNTAIN IS IN DUBAI

The fountains, which has yet to be named, will be capable of shooting water over 150 metres into the air - the height of a 50-storey building - and stretch over 275 metres - the length of two football fields


The $218 million project will be 25 percent larger than the iconic fountains at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas


Like the Fountains of Bellagio, Emaar's fountains will include an integral light and sound show and is expected to become one of Dubai's major tourist attractions, drawing over 10 million visitors per year.


The fountains will shoot 22,000 gallons of water in the air at any given moment and feature over 6,600 lights and 50 colour projectors.


The fountains have yet to be named and a cash prize of $27,225 has been assigned to the winner of a competition to name the water feature


The structure is scheduled to be operational by 2009

10 Surah yang Mujarab dari Nabi Muhammad s.a.w


1. SURAH AL-FATIHAH

Amalkan membaca Surah Al-Fatihah semasa hendak tidur diikuti dengan membaca Surah Al-Ikhlas 3 kali, Surah Al-Falaq dan Surah An-Nas. Insya'Allah akan aman tenteram dan terjauh daripada gangguan syaitan. Dianjurkan juga membaca surah ini sebanyak 44 kali untuk mengubati sakit mata, perut, gigi dan lain-lainnya dengan izin Allah s.w.t.
Untuk mencegah kemarahan Allah, bacalah surah ini sebanyak 17 kali sehari iaitu dengan mengerjakan solat 5 waktu.

2. SURAH YAASIN

Telah bersabda Rasulullah s.a.w., sesungguhnya bagi setiap sesuatu itu ada hati, dan hati Al-Qur'an ialah Surah Yaasin iaitu jantung Al-Qur'an. Sesiapa yang membaca Surah Yaasin, nescaya dituliskan oleh Allah pahala menyamai sepuluh kali membaca Al-Qur'an seluruhnya. (Hadis riwayat At-Tarmizi dari Anas r.a.) Rasulullah s.a.w. juga bersabda : Surah Yaasin dinamakan di dalam kitab Taurat dengan sebutan "At-Mu'ammah" (yang umum), yang mengumumkan pembacanya dengan kebaikan dunia dan akhirat, menanggung segala bala baik dari kesusahan di dunia mahu pun akhirat. Pembaca juga akan dilindungi dari setiap keburukan dan kejahatan serta segala hajat dan kemahuan akan Allah kabulkan. Jika dibaca dalam satu malam semata-mata mengharapkan keredaan Allah, nescaya Allah akan mengampunkan dosanya. (Hadis riwayat Malik, Ibnu-Sunni dan Ibnu Hibban). Surah Yaasin ni juga jika diamalkan, akan terselamatlah kita dari kehausan di hari KIAMAT.

3. SURAH AT-DHUHAN

Dibaca sekali pada malam Jumaat agar kita terselamat dari huru hara di Padang Mahsyar.

4. SURAH AL-WAQI'AH


Menurut beberapa hadis Rasulullah s.a.w., mereka yang mengamalkan membaca Surah Al-Waqi'ah pada tiap-tiap malam, insya'Allah tidak akan merasai kepapaan. Mereka yang membacanya sebagai wirid, insya'Allah akan beroleh kesenangan selama-lamanya. Mereka yang membacanya sebanyak 14 kali setiap lepas solat As ar, insya'Allah akan dikurniakan dengan rezeki yang banyak. Selepas solat Isyak, ambillah segelas air lalu bacalah Surah Al-Fatihah sekali, Ayatul Qursi sekali dan Surah Al-Waqi'ah ayat 35-38 sebanyak 7 kali. Tiup dalam air dan minum. Dalam hati, niat untuk menjaga kecantikan diri dan kebahagiaan rumahtangga kita. Makna Surah Al-Waqi'ah Ayat 35-38 ialah : "Sesungguhnya, Kami telah menciptakan isteri-isteri mereka dengan ciptaan istimewa. Serta Kami jadikan mereka sentiasa dara (yang tidak pernah disentuh), yang tetap mencintai jodohnya serta yang sebaya dengan umurnya.

5. SURAH AL-KHAUTHAR


Sesiapa yang mengamalkan membaca surah ini sebanyak 1,000 kali, maka Allah s.w.t. akan menghasilkan hajatnya termasuk rezeki dan kenaikan pangkat. Sesiapa yang membaca 1,000 kali juga selepas solat Isyak hingga dia tertidur, insya'Allah dia dapat melihat Rasulullah s.a.w. dalam tidurnya.

6. SURAH AL-KHAAFIRUUN

Sesiapa yang membaca Surah Al-Khaafiruun, maka bandingannya seperti membaca seperempat Al-Qur'an, disamping terlepas dari syirik, terjauh dari godaan syaitan dan terlepas dari peristiwa yang mengejutkan (Riwayat At-Tarmizi). Sebelum tidur, bacalah surah ini agar kita mati dalam iman serta membersihkan kotoran dalam diri kita.


7. SURAH AL-MULK


Sebuah lagi Surah dari Al-Qur'an iaitu Surah Al-Mulk mempunyai fadilat dan faedah yang amat besar bagi sesiapa yang mengamalkan membacanya. Menurut beberapa hadis Rasulullah s.a.w., mereka yang mengamalkan membaca akan surah ini, akan mendapat syafaat dan keampunan dosa-dosanya. Mereka yang membacanya pada setiap malam, insya'Allah, akan terselamat dari azab kubur..

8. SURAH AL-IKHLAS


Rasulullah s.a.w. pernah bersabda kepada isteri kesayangan baginda, Siti Aisyah, antara mafhumnya : "Wahai Aisyah isteri ku, sebelum kamu tidur, khatamlah dulu Al-Qur'an." Siti Aisyah lalu berkata, "Wahai suami ku, saya tidak mampu khatam Al-Qur'an sebanyak 30 juzuk itu." Apabila mendengar kata-kata Siti Aisyah tersebut, Rasulullah s.a.w. sambil tersenyum lalu menjawab, "Barangsiapa yang membaca 3 kali sebelum tidur, seolah-olah ia telah khatam Al-Qur'an keseluruhannya. " Dari Rasulullah s.a.w.. pernah bersabda kepada Saidina Ali r.a., "Sesiapa hendak pergi musafir, kemudian ketika dia hendak meninggalkan rumahnya, ia membaca surah Al-Ikhlas 11 kali, maka Allah memelihara rumahnya sampai ia kembali. Ibnu Said Al-Khanafi menerangkan : "Surah ini dinamakan Surah Al-Ikhlas, ertinya bersih atau lepas. Maka barang siapa yang membacanya dan mengamalkannya dengan hati yang ikhlas, maka ia akan dilepaskan kesusahan duniawi, dimudahkan di dalam gelombang sakratulmaut, dihindarkan dari kegelapan kubur dan kengerian hari kiamat."

9. SURAH AL-FALAQ

Siti Aisyah menerangkan : "Bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w. pada setiap malam apabila hendak tidur, Baginda membaca Surah Al-Ikhlas, Surah Al-Falaq dan Surah An-Nas lalu ditiupkan pada kedua telapak tangan, kemudian disapukan keseluruh tubuh dan kepala. Barang siapa terkena penyakit kerana perbuatan syaitan atau manusia, hendaklah membaca Surah Al-Falaq dan Surah An-Nas sebanyak 41 kali selama 3 hari, 5 hari atau 7 hari berturut-turut. Barang siapa yang takut akan godaan syaitan dan manusia, takut dalam kegelapan malam atau takut dengan kejahatan manusia, bacalah Surah Al-Falaq dan Surah An-Nas sebanyak 100 kali.

10. SURAH AN-NAS


Surah An-Nas adalah surah yang terakhir (ke-114) dalam Al-Qur'an. Nama An-Nas diambil dari kata An-Nas yang berulang kali disebut dalam surah ini yang bermaksud manusia. Surah ini termasuk dalam golongan surah makkiyah. Isi surah ini adalah bagi menganjurkan manusia memohon perlindungan kepada Allah dari godaan syaitan baik yang berasal dari golongan manusia mahu pun jin. Surah An-Nas ini juga adalah penerang hati

This is e-mail received from a person working in a Software Company


Dear colleagues, I am working in Blore Software City .... I wanted to share an incident of my life with you, hoping that it may be an eye opener to you so that you can live more years.


On 27th October afternoon, I had severe heart attack symptom and I was rushed to the hospital.


After reaching to the hospital, the doctors prescribed a test called angiogram. This test is basically to identify blood flow of heart arteries. When they finished the test they found a 94% block in the main artery, please see the image below with red circle.



image00121.jpg

At this point, I wanted to share my living style, which has caused this block in my heart arteries. Please see the below points of my life style, if any of these points are part of your life style then you are at risk, please change yourselves.


1. I was not doing any physical exercise for more than 10 years
, not even walking 30 minutes a day for years.

2.
My food timings are 11:00 AM Breakfast or no Breakfast, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Lunch and dinner at 11:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

3.
Sleeping in very odd timings, going to bed between 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM. Waking up at between 9:00 AM and 10:30AM ....... Some times spending sleepless nights.

4.
I used to eat heavily because of long gaps between lunch and dinner and I used to make sure that Non-Veg is available most of the time, there were times when I did survey on city hotels to find delicious Non-Veg dishes. I was never interested in vegetable and healthier food.

5.
Above all I was chain smoker from years.

6.
My father passed away due to heart problems, and the doctors say the heart problems are usually genetic.

Once they identified the major block they have done immediately a procedure called angioplasty along with 2 Stints, mean they will insert a foreign body into the heart arteries and open the blocked area of arteries. Please see the below image after the procedure.



image00215.jpg


I learnt from the doctors
that 60% people will die before reaching the hospital,20% people will die in the process of recovering from heart attack and only 20% will survive . In my case, I was very lucky to be part of the last 20%.

Doctors instructions:


1. Need to have physical exercise for minimum of 45 minutes daily.

2. Eat your food at perfect timings, like how you eat during your school days. Eat in small quantities more times and have lot of vegetables and boiled food, try to avoid fry items and oily food. Fish is good than other non-vegetarian food.

3. Sleep for 8 hours a day, this count should complete before sun rising.
4. Stop smoking
5. Genetic problems, we cannot avoid but we can get away from it by having regular checkups.

6. Find a way to get relived from the stress (Yoga, Meditation etc).


So I urge you all to please avoid getting into this situation, it is in your hands to turn the situation up side down, by just planning / changing your life style, by following simple points above.

If you find it's useful you can forward this mail to your friends and loved ones.....

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.


George Phillips , an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello,I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing
things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team,
a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George , "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"


(True Story) I LOVE IT!

Don't mess with old people.


Live well, laugh often, love much!!!

Worth Reading...ASPARAGUS

So many of health food going around and this had been around some time too, so how true to it's values indicated is another story. But then this is being natural, it is no harm to consume it. Give it a try if you are a health freak or adventurous enough.

File:Asparagus3.JPG
Three types of asparagus on a shop display, with white asparagus at the back and green asparagus in the middle. The plant at the front is Ornithogalum pyrenaicum, is commonly called wild asparagus,


Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article,entitled,
`Asparagus for cancer ' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979.

I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: 'I am a biochemist,and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years.

Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R.Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project.. We have accumulated a number of favourable case histories.

Here are a few examples:


Case No. 1,

A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2,

A successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments,includin g radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.


Case No. 3,

A man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine. *


*Case No. 4,

A woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by asking specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and nomore skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of Materia Medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones.

We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy. For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh.

I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.


* * PROCEDURE:
1) Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator.

2) Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.


Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold.

For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.

The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink...

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and inacting as a general body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance.

The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good.. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

Turmeric destroy cancer cells

Hey please read this discovery......

Millions of us love a curry but few realise it could be used to beat cancer.

A chemical found in the spice turmeric (kunyit) has been found to destroy oesophageal cancer cells.

Previous scientific studies have suggested curcumin - which gives curries a distinctive yellow colour can suppress tumours and that people who eat lots of curry may be less prone to the disease.

Now Irish scientists have found curcumin started to kill oesophageal cancer cells within 24 hours. The cells also began to digest themselves, they said in a study published in the British Journal of Cancer.

Sharon Mc Kenna, lead author of the study in Cork , said curcumin caused the cancer to die 'using an unexpected system of cell messages'.

Almost 8,000 Britons develop cancer of oesophagus every year and it kills more than 500,000 people worldwide each year. The tumours are especially deadly, with 5 year survival rates of as little as 12%.

Curcumin is also being tested as a potential treatment for other diseases, including dementia and arthritis.

Low Cholesterol Levels Increases Cancer Risk

Low Cholesterol Levels Increases Cancer Risk

-American Collegeof Cardiology

For years, the medical establishment' s obsession with lowering cholesterol
to prevent heart disease is causing more harm than good.

If your doctor continues to get you worried about your high cholesterol
levels, here's a bit of news for you...

In fact, your high cholesterol may be protecting you from cancer.

Today, I'll explain the truth behind the myth of cholesterol, and show you
how to achieve heart health naturally.

A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology
revealed that driving down cholesterol levels actually increases the risk of
cancer.

Researchers at theTufts University School of Medicine found that among
people taking "statin" drugs - like Lipitor and Zocor -there was a higher
rate of cancer. Although the link between the drugs and cancer wasn't clear,
there was no doubt that drastically low cholesterol levels correlated to
cancer risk.

The big drug makers continue to sell the notion that the best way to fight
heart disease is to lower LDL levels, the so-called "bad" cholesterol.

Yet 75 percent of people who suffer heart attacks have normal cholesterol
levels.

It makes sense that low cholesterol levels are linked to cancer because
cholesterol is one of your body's basic building blocks. You need it to
produce testosterone, to build and repair cell membranes, and to preserve
your nerve cells through the formation of the protective "sheaths" that
cover them.

Starving your body of this critical substance will lead to other health
problems. We already know that extremely low cholesterol levels result in
muscle weakness, fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive, and "brain fog."
This new research shows that there may be even more deadly consequences.

What really matters is not low "bad" cholesterol, but high levels of HDL,the
so-called "good" cholesterol.. As long as you have a high HDL count - 75 to
80, for example - it doesn't matter whether your total cholesterol is 150 or
350. A high HDL will always keep your risk of heart disease extremely low.

So why haven't you heard this already? It may be because there's no drug
that effectively raises good cholesterol levels. You can only effectively
do it naturally.

Consume natural fats.Avoid processed or fast foods containing"Trans" fats-
these man-made substances were never meant for consumption, and your body
doesn't know what to do with them. They wind up clogging your arteries and
putting you on the fast track to heart disease.

Instead, get your fat from free-range or grass-fed animals, eggs, nuts, and
unprocessed vegetable oils. These are some of the healthiest foods you can
eat. (As with all foods, look for organic or minimally processed options
whenever possible.)

The health benefit of these natural fats comes from their balance of Omega-3
and Omega-6 fatty acids. Your body needs both but, as with
cholesterol, they have to be in balance.Omega-3s are great for your heart.
They've been shown to prevent irregular heartbeat, reduce clogging of the
arteries,lower blood pressure, and decrease inflammation in body tissues.

If you stick to eating natural fats, you'll automatically get the right
ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3, which is about 2:1. As an added bonus, you'll
automatically raise your "good" cholesterol levels and you'll reduce your
risk of cancer.

To Your Good Health.

DOA SI-SEPET YANG MAKBUL

Satu ketika di zaman seorang Khalifah berlaku kegawatan ekonomi yang meruncing. Keadaan menjadi semakin gawat apabila tumbuhan tidak menjadi. Hujan sudah tidak turun selama beberapa bulan. Pemerintah mencanangkan agar semua rakyat turun ke padang untuk solat istisqa' dan berdoa agar Allah menurunkan hujan. Namun hujan tidak turun juga. Khalifah menjemput ramai ustaz, tok guru dan para abid yang berpengaruh serta mempunyai ikutan yang ramai, untuk bersama-sama berdoa kepada Allah; tetapi keadaan masih tidak berubah.

Khalifah menjadi semakin khuatir apabila kemarau kian berpanjangan. Baginda berusaha mencari orang yang mustajab doanya untuk tampil ke depan bagi mengimami solat pinta hujan. Akhirnya tampil seorang lelaki yang kelihatan selekeh dengan pakaian yang comot dan rambut yang kusut berjumpa Khalifah.

"Ya khalifah! Saya datang untuk menyahut seruan tuanku." Khalifah macam tak begitu yakin melihat pemuda yang comot itu.

"Benarkah kamu ini? Sedangkan ramai para ulamak dan abid yang terkenal tidak dimakbulkan Allah doanya, inikan pula kamu yang begini?". Pemuda itu menjawab, "Insyallah doa kita akan dikabulkan!".

Pemuda itu terus mengimami sembahyang bersama rakyat dan berdoa. Belum pun habis doanya, dengan tidak diduga hujan turun mencurah-curah dengan lebat. Khalifah segera bertanya, "Wahai pemuda, cuba kamu ceritakan kepada beta apa amalan kamu sehingga doamu diperkenankan Allah." Pemuda itu menceritakan "Pernah semasa muda dulu, saya begitu asyik melihat wajah seorang gadis ayu. Saya terpesona dengan kecantikannya sehingga saya terlalai dari mematuhi perintah Allah. Saya menyesal atas kejahatan saya itu dan merobek-robek muka saya hingga tanpa disedari biji mata saya terkeluar dari rongganya. Sebab itulah mata saya menjadi sepet. Saya bertaubat dari kejahatan itu dan terus mengabdikan diri kepada Allah." Khalifah mengucapkan terima kasih dan terus sujud syukur kepada Allah.

MORAL & IKTIBAR

  • Allah menurunkan bala sebagai peringatan kepada hamba-hambanya atas dosa yang dilakukan.
  • Kehendak Allah mengatasi segala.
  • Allah menyayangi orang yang bertaubat sehingga apa saja doanya dikabulkan Allah.
  • Allah sayang kepada seseorang bukan kerana rupa dan sifat lahiriahnya, tetapi kerana sifat ubudiah dan ketaqwaannya.
  • Untuk mengatasi apa jua masalah yang menimpa, Allah menganjurkan kita supaya kembali kepadaNya.

Jangan memandang orang dari sifat lahiriahnya tetapi lihat dari segi amalan dan ketaqwaanya kepada Allah.

Benefits of Eating Pineapple

The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family. It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit. The pineapple is the only available edible bromeliad today. It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of individual floweret's that grow together to form the entire fruit. Each scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further. Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.

Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit. The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste. After you cut off the top, you can plant it. It should grow much like a sweet potato will. This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many benefits to our health.

Pineapple is a remarkable fruit. We find it enjoyable because of its
lush, sweet and exotic flavour, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today. If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Let's look at how pineapple affects other conditions.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount. It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value.
Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory. Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It produces mild pain relief. In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat. If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet. It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations. Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies. In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.

An old folk remedy for morning sickness is fresh pineapple juice. It
really works! Fresh juice and some nuts first thing in the morning often make a difference. It's also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh juice discourages plaque growth.
