Gandolfini was drinking heavily before his death

Image

The “New York Post” claims that JAMES GANDOLFINI was drinking pretty heavily before his fatal heart attack in Italy last week.

  Sources say he downed at least eight drinks during dinner at the restaurant in the hotel where he died . . . including four shots of rum, two pina coladas and two beers.

Image

  Not that it matters right?

He was also eating two orders of fried prawns covered in mayonnaise and chili sauce, and a, quote, “heaping” portion of foie gras.

  However . . . Gandolfini’s spokesman said Friday that autopsy results confirmed he died of a heart attack and natural causes, and that, quote, “nothing else was found in his system.”

 

  Meanwhile, Gandolfini’s body was flown from Rome to New Jersey last night on a private plane.  His funeral will take place Thursday at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City.

 

It usually takes up to seven days to return the body of an American who dies in Europe.  Secretary of State JOHN KERRY and BILL and HILLARY CLINTON helped make that happen a lot quicker.  In other words, even DEAD celebrities get treated better than you.

 

The FAA is Going to Lift the Ban on Electronics During Takeoff and Landing

Bad news, “SkyMall”.  According to a report in the “Wall Street Journal”, the FAA is going to lift the ban on using your electronics when a plane is taking off and landing.  Because it turns out our gadgets DON’T mess up the plane after all.

Image

You still won’t be allowed to use cell phones, unless they’re in airplane mode.  The ban will probably end sometime in September or October.

Coolness!!

SWEET SWEET POTATOES

Sigh…i have been craving these buggers for the longest time and was wondering why…a nutritionist had once told me cravings are a clue to what your body desperately needs and turns out i needed iron, less stress and more vitamin c..

Check out the benefits of these tatters:Image

1.  They are high in vitamin B6.  Vitamin B6 helps reduce the chemical homocysteine in our bodies.  Homocysteine has been linked with degenerative diseases, including the prevention of heart attacks.

2. They are a good source of vitamin C.  While most people know that vitamin C is important to help ward off cold and flu viruses, few people are aware that this crucial vitamin plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation. It helps accelerate wound healing, produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essen­tial to helping us cope with stress. It even appears to help protect our body against toxins that may be linked to cancer.

3.  They contain Vitamin D which is critical for immune system and overall health at this time of year.  Both a vitamin and a hormone, vitamin D is primarily made in our bodies as a result of getting adequate sunlight. You may have heard about seasonal affective disorder (or SAD, as it is also called), which is linked to inadequate sunlight and therefore a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D plays an important role in our energy levels, moods, and helps to build healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, and teeth, and it supports the thyroid gland.

4.  Sweet potatoes contain iron. Most people are aware that we need the mineral iron to have adequate energy, but iron plays other important roles in our body, including red and white blood cell production, resistance to stress, proper im­mune functioning, and the metabolizing of protein, among other things.

5.  Sweet potatoes are a good source of mag­nesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral. Magnesium is necessary for healthy artery, blood, bone, heart, muscle, and nerve function, yet experts estimate that approximately 80 percent of the popula­tion in North America may be deficient in this important mineral.

P.S. My buddy also told me they are way better for you than normal potatoes, which i have a serious love/hate relationship with, so while I try sticking to these buggers…i will keep you posted how it all works out!

Terrorists Have a New Way to Kill Us . . . by Making Us Smoke?

According to a new study out of Weill Cornel Medical College in New York, TERRORISM CAUSES SMOKING.

The researchers found that the STRESS after 9/11 caused approximately 1.3 MILLION former smokers to start smoking again.

That means September 11th caused a 2.3% jump in smoking in the U.S.  And the public health cost from 1.3 million smokers is at least $530 MILLION.

The researchers say, quote, “The finding that there was such a big increase in smoking nationwide, seemingly due to one event, is extraordinary and surprising.”

Hmm…never thought i would see this connection!
