    Vitamins in Bananas
    A small banana, which contains 90 calories, adds 1 to 2 percent of the daily value (DV) for 11 different vitamins to your regimen. Basically, you’ll get some of each essential vitamin in a banana – vitamin A; all the B vitamins except B-12; vitamin E; vitamin K; and choline. Bananas don’t supply vitamin D, which, like B-12, is found primarily in animal foods.
    The most notable vitamins in a banana are vitamin C, with 15 percent of the daily value on a 2,000-calorie diet, as well as and vitamin B-6, with 19 percent of the DV. Vitamin C is an antioxidant your body needs to form new tissues and bones. This water-soluble vitamin also helps your body absorb iron.


    Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) belongs to the B vitamins, and along with other nutrients in that family, it helps metabolize protein. Other functions include supporting nerve health, producing hemoglobin and manufacturing antibodies to fight infections.
    Minerals in Bananas
    You’ll also get nine minerals in a small banana, most in amounts from 1 to 7 percent of the daily value. Bananas offer significantly more of two minerals, though – potassium, with 10 percent of the DV, and manganese, with 14 percent.
    Your body needs potassium, an electrolyte, to balance its fluids and to help maintain muscle and nerve health.
    Diets that lean more toward processed and fast foods and away from whole foods often contain too much sodium and too little potassium, which can result in elevated blood pressure. Increasing the potassium in your diet while reducing your sodium intake can help control this common condition.
    Manganese is an antioxidant mineral that helps build strong bones and repair wounded tissues. It also works to metabolize carbs, protein and fat in food.
    Working Bananas into Your Diet
    Bananas are conveniently portable, so you can bring them along when you need a snack. The 3 grams of fiber in a small banana – 10 percent of the daily value – will help keep you feeling full. Plus, the potassium content of bananas makes them a good post-workout food to help restore your electrolytes.

    Another fruit that is excellent for health is Kiwi Fruit.
    One fruit contains more Vitamin C than half a dozen oranges, it also has a variety of minerals and vitamins.
    But to get the best from it the skin should be eaten.
    Sounds odd, but on a tour of a Kiwi farm in NZ I read a leaflet put out by a Swedish university on the benefits of Kiwi Fruit. I have one each morning, skin on, chopped up in my cereal.

    John, cannot get blood from you.
    Well you know what they say, impossible to get blood from a stone. LOL
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Continuing from my posting #44.

    Having failed the stress test on the tread mill the Cardiolgist sent me for further tests.
    Echo Cardoigraph and a few others.

    Today I attended the hospital for a pre procedure medical.
    Treated by a very good nurse, one who did her training at the same University where I was employed as a senior administration officer.

    The examination went for almost two hours, apart from weight and hight being checked I also underwent an ECG.

    Then the question and answer bit.
    I had to call on all me memory skills, how old was I when I had my tonsils out? 8 or maybe 9 I did not keep a diary in those days so cannot be certain.
    When did you start smoking? 8 or maybe 9 still had no diary.
    What about drinking, don't tell me I know about 8 ort 9 but you had no diary.
    Got it in one.

    Bit young don't you think?
    Yes but I was a bit young then so anything went.

    How many bits have you had removed, appendix, prostate, veins, hernia repairs, pollips burnt off, any thing else you would like to know?

    Then after all this the pamphlet giving information of what will occur.

    The bludgers intend to do an Angiogram on me and if needed insert a stent.
    All very nice but only with a local anesthetic.

    But then I remembered, back in the days of Nelson they used Brandy for that purpose, roll on October 31st I may get lucky.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    since my last post,6th Sept, the crap has hit the fan and everything has been put on hold. After the 3rd injection of serum I developed a severe reaction to the treatment. It effected the joints of the body in a transient manner that started in the hands then move to the shoulders, then to the knees...Very painful and very hard to move. Going for the fourth treatment I arrived at the hospital and wifey had to push me into the clinic in a wheelchair. The nurse frantically searched the telephone system trying to locate the specialist who was on the road visiting other locations, after contacting him and a short chat I was wisked off to emergency where i spent the next 7 hours going through a battery of testing under the guidence of an infectious disease doctor. I had more blood taken and peed into more bottles than i have in the last two years. X-rays and CT scans and fluid drawn off the swollen knee... So now everything is on hold and waiting for the last of the results to surface... But the consensus is that it was or possibly is an arthritic reaction to the serum that attacks the joints...So another scope on the 12Nov to see if there are any changers, then a course of other treatments. Fingers and toe's crossed... one encouraging thing to come out of this MOT, is it does'nt look like there'

    s too much wrong with me other than a screwed up bladder

    Of course they like to keep you on your toes and guessing.

    The letter tells me I will be out in 2 to 4 hours and must have some one to drive me home.
    But the official sheet they gave me about the procedure tells me I will be kept in over night.

    Now I ask myself, is this to confuse the patient or is it just the hospital that is confused.

    Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!
