Eating red meat can be detrimental to your health

By Tamara Nuno

Eating red meat can be toxic to health because it contains chemicals such as nitrates. I was a little surprised to read this article but not too surprised because I know that beef and pork are not good for your health.

I am proud that I have given those two meats up and it has been years since I have eaten those types of meat. I don’t each too much meat. I only eat turkey and chicken and lots of fish.

I am trying to cut down my meat consumption because we shouldn’t be eating too much meat. This article really opened my eyes and I hope that my family follows suit and tries to cut out these meats in their diet.

Shots and Meds before Boarding

As a frequent traveler you come to realize that upon arriving to your destination of travel or back home you always seem to get a little cold. For starters it’s important to do a little research to where you plan on traveling to, some countries may require you to get a shot of some type of vaccination or you made need to take some prescription pills in order to avoid getting malaria or something else that is frequent there. Second, make sure you are well rested before your flight, have a travelers pillow, head phones that can connect to a portable device that will provide soothing sounds in case their is a crying baby or a loud neighbor beside you. Attempt to not drink alcohol before your flight or during even if it seems to relax you in the end your body will swell up and you will be uncomfortable for the remainder of your flight. If a blanket is not provided, make sure you brought along a light sweater to cover yourself up, the slight air that flows through can be sufficient enough to give you the sniffles. Lastly, pack up some medicine just in case, if you happen to go to a foreign county it’s almost impossible to buy something that you are sure is going to treat your problem. From Tums, Pepto-bismo, Tylenol to cough drops it never hurts to be a little prepared, and to be on the safe side as well take some airborne just in case you never know if someone on the plane is getting over something.
