Beware: Garlic from China!
#knoflook An alarming report came by this week about how garlic is treated and grown in China. I also use a lot of garlic myself because it is so good for your health. Unfortunately, I still have to buy them at the supermarket. I think everyone should read this post and know what you're buying with the cheap garlic from China. Judge for yourself: Below the translated message from English into Dutch.The photo above is of Carla Glory of dedansendeboom.nl and his organic garlic that we will plant in the district garden greenalphen.com the coming year.Your garlic is imported from China, made with bleach and chemicalsGarlic, one of the healthiest and most popular foods on the planet. There is no denial of the wonderful health benefits that garlic has, it is a traditional remedy for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even colds.But there's something about garlic that you probably do not know, more than 80% of the garlic sold worldwide comes from China. Last year, the US alone imported £138 million. Although most consumers assume that their garlic was grown in California, the “garlic capital of the world”, it was actually shipped from China. Even “organic” garlic is often imported from China, where organic certification can not be trusted.Chinese garlic is bleached. According to Henry Bell of the Australian Garlic Industry Association, garlic from China is sprayed with chemicals to stop germination, white garlic, and to kill insects and plant material. He also reports that garlic is grown in untreated sewage, “Bell also questions some growth practices in China.“I'm sure some garlic growers there use raw human waste water to fertilize their crops, and I don't believe Australian quarantine regulations are strict enough when it comes to testing bacteria on imported products,” he says. “I also challenge the effectiveness of the Chinese methyl bromidegassing processes.”Chinese garlic is heavily sprayed with methyl bromide to remove any insects. Methylbromide is a highly toxic chemical. Exposure to high concentrations can cause damage to the respiratory and central nervous system, even death. According to the UN, it is 60 times more harmful than chlorine and is the basis of CFCS.Garlic from China is also sprayed with lead, sulfates and other unsafe compounds.So the next time you are in the supermarket, you may want to think about this article. Fortunately, Chinese garlic is easy to see.Californian garlic has some roots on the bottom and is heavier than imported garlic.

Gambling
To understand this topic I must begin by explaining well what a player is; you are a person with a gambling addiction disorder. - It is like a person addicted to drugs who needs it to feel pleased and satisfied, drugs are for them a compulsion to an irresistible desire, in the same way feels the player who seeks to play constantly and compulsively to satisfy the needs of his brain. When the gambler is deprived of gambling, he feels the same sensation as a drug addict when he cannot consume. That is why dealing with this pathology is not an easy task, like all addictions can be overcome, but we must arm ourselves with a lot of empathy, willpower and motivation to help that person who suffers from this disorder. Here are some tips that could help if we know a person who is going through this situation, but remember that there are specialized professionals to treat these cases. - - Help to understand that there is a problem that is gambling and that resembles substance addiction; Just as the drug addict says he needs drugs to feel better, the gambler needs to gamble compulsively to feel full. They must be guided to understand the situation without reproach or recrimination and thus be able to reverse the situation. It is important not to judge because we know that the person who suffers from gambling feels compelled to play to satisfy their psychological needs So we are going to inquire to know if he is aware of the situation, if he wants to change it, if he knows the damage that is done and does to his environment, if he wants a life without gambling. We achieve all this if we can make him understand that he has a problem, because if he does not understand it, unfortunately it will not be easy for him and you have to be very skillful to make him understand because many times he will deny that he can feel what happens to him with the inconveniences that he faces. It has caused gambling, such as financial, family and work problems, sleep disorders, alcohol consumption, a disorderly life ... in short, a series of situations that drag being a gambler. With all this, he must discover that he is a person with a compulsive pathology for gambling or, what is the same, is a gambler, immediately there is to give him alternatives so that his life improves trying that the time he invested in playing is used in other rewarding activities that They divert you from the game, perhaps practicing a hobby, or doing exercises, doing a sport, reading, doing some activity, being with family and friends.

Para entender este tema debo comenzar por explicar bien qué es un Ludópata; es una persona con un trastorno adictivo al juego. - Es como una persona adicta a las drogas que la necesita para sentirse de manera gratificante, las drogas son para ellos una compulsión a un deseo irresistible, de la misma manera siente el ludópata que busca jugar de manera constante y compulsiva para cubrir las necesidades de su cerebro.Cuando al ludópata se le priva del juego siente la misma sensación que un drogadicto cuando no puede consumir. Es por eso que lidiar con esta patología no es tarea fácil, como toda adicciones puede superarse, pero debemos armarnos de mucha empatía, fuerza de voluntad y motivación para ayudar a esa persona que padece este trastorno. Aquí dejo algunos consejos que podrían ayudar si conocemos a una persona atravesando esta situación, pero recuerda que existen especialistas profesionales para tratar estos casos. - Ayudar a comprender que existe un problema que es la ludopatía y que se asemeja a la adicción de sustancias; pues al igual que el drogadicto dice necesitar drogas para sentirse mejor, el ludópata necesita jugar compulsivamente para sentirse pleno. Hay que guiarlos a que entiendan la situación sin reproches ni recriminaciones y así poder revertir la situación. Es importante no juzgar porque sabemos que la persona que padece la ludopatía se siente obligada a jugar para satisfacer sus necesidades psicológicas. Entonces vamos a indagar para saber si es consciente de la situación, si desea cambiarla, si sabe el daño que se hace y le hace a su entorno, si desea una vida sin el juego y organizada. Todo esto lo logramos si podemos hacerle entender que tiene un problema, pues si no lo entiende lamentablemente no será fácil para él y hay que ser muy hábiles para hacerlo comprender pues muchas veces lo negará, necesitamos que pueda palpar lo que le sucede con los inconvenientes que le ha ocasionado jugar, como problemas económicos, familiares, laborales, trastornos de sueño, el consumo de alcohol, una vida desordenada... en fin una serie de situaciones que arrastra el ser ludópata. Él con todo esto debe descubrir que es una persona con una patología compulsiva por jugar o lo que es igual es un ludópata, inmediatamente hay darle alternativas para que su vida mejore tratando de que el tiempo que invertía en jugar sea aprovechado en otras actividades gratificantes que le desvíen del juego, quizás practicar un hobby, o hacer ejercicios, hacer algún deporte, leer, hacer alguna actividad, acompañarse de familiares y amigos. Podemos ayudar motivándolos pues sabemos que superar las adicciones es complicado y difícil, pero impulsándolos a que vean lo beneficioso que ha sido dejar el juego para su calidad de vida, es muy importante darle valor al empeño que ha puesto para superar su adicción alcanzando cada objetivo, hay que recalcar cada logro y avance por muy chico que sea es valioso. Sé su hombro y apoyo pues vivirá momentos estresantes y angustiantes llenos de ansiedad donde creerá no poder seguir adelante y buscará desviarse, no le señales ni le recrimines, sé empático con su dolor y dale la mano; pero debes ser firme para que pueda encumbrarse a un camino sano sin adicciones.
