What Soft Drinks Do To Your Body

Healthful Living

Soft drinks are hard on your health
Soft drinks contain little to no vitamins or other essential nutrients. However, it is what they do contain that is the problem: caffeine, carbonation, simple sugars — or worse, sugar substitutes — and often food additives such as artificial coloring, flavoring, and preservatives.

A lot of research has found that consumption of soft drinks in high quantity, especially by children, is responsible for many health problems that include
tooth decay, nutritional depletion, obesity, type-2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Why the sugar in soft drinks isn’t so sweet
Most soft drinks contain a high amount of simple sugars. The USDA recommendation of sugar consumption for a 2,000-calorie diet is a daily allotment of 10 teaspoons of added sugars. Many soft drinks contain more than this amount!

Just why is too much sugar so unhealthy? Well, to start, let's talk about what happens to you as sugar enters your body. When you drink sodas that are packed with simple sugars, the pancreas is called upon to produce and release insulin, a hormone that empties the sugar in your blood stream into all the tissues and cells for usage. The result of overindulging in simple sugar is raised insulin levels. Raised blood insulin levels beyond the norm can lead to depression of the immune system, which in turn weakens your ability to fight disease.

Something else to consider is that most of the excess sugar ends up being stored as fat in your body, which results in weight gain and elevates risk for
heart disease and cancer. One study found that when subjects were given refined sugar, their white blood cell count decreased significantly for several hours afterwards. Another study discovered that rats fed a high-sugar diet had a substantially elevated rate of breast cancer when compared to rats on a regular diet. Full article...

Simple Mountain Shop/Cabin Invention

Country Outpost Info.

This is a prototpe of a project we are working on to convert storage containers into usable cabins, shops, and offices. This particular model is a 20' x 8' steel container that can be used for a shop or cabin on your property. I just recently had a 40' container droped and I plan to turn it into a shop/storage unit. These containers come with A/C installed, (2) 2' x 3' windows, a standard size door (32 x 80), 120 volts electrical panel, recess lights, and (3) walls sockets. The nice thing about these units is we can ship them anywhere you want. This unit can be insulated (up to R-35) for high mountain range. They are water-proof, rust-roof, and resistant to fire, wind, ice, or termite damage. The outside can be finished with a variety of siding material and paint colors to decrease, or increase visability.

 

     We can also apply a special poly-protected foaming material and buried it on a hillside to be used as a root cellar or cold storage. We can install a very small and efficient wood burning stove for heat. Solar panels can also be mounted on the top for energy. There are many different ways to convert these container and use them. Most of all that are very sound and secure. Whatever your needs are for these units, we can adjust them for you. They can even be stacked on top of each other or, side by side with walls dismantled to make an enlarged room. Contact Bert for more details. Prices may vary according to finish material, size, and shipping expenses.

      This is an inside view of the 20' x 8' x 8' model. The walls are finished with interior paneling and molding. The floor comes with a durable laminate material. One vent is mounted on the backwall for the A/C flow. We can install a wood burning stove for heat. The electrical panel can be plugged in to a standard wall outlet or, hardwired in for more permanent purposes. The following sizes are available for conversion, 20' x 8' or, 40' x 8'.

Editor's Note: The construction is still going forward according to plan in the Philippines. The newly baptized brethren are being nurtured by Pastor Lito, Joel (translator), and Nestor. We solicit your prayers for the work there in the Philippines. If you would like to get involved with missions post comments below, or sign in as a new user and send us a private message.


Church Construction Progress#2

Lito is back! He wants to stay and help us nurture the newly baptized at san francisco, with Joel and Nestor.  They will just divide the six thousand pesos allowance every month.  Rocil was not here last saturday.
 
Twelve of them attended soro-soro and about twenty attended chrysanthemum.  According to joel, some of the newly baptized told him that they cannot attend the church because their parents sent them to wash their clothes. The one-legged man is always at soro-soro with a perfect attendance every sabbath.  We divide the group into four with Leaders and secretaries and we assigned adventist members to each group to conduct visitation, worship and follow-up bible studies.
 
Thank you for all your prayers!
 
Luis

How To Read The Bible More Effectively (part 3)

Bible Studies

Adequate understanding of the Bible, like the understanding of any literature, comes by reading it in logical units. These units may be whole books, sections, or paragraphs. If the material is poetry, the poem or the stanza may comprise the unit to be grasped. The chapters of the Bible, as now marked off, may or may not be logical units. 

     Many books of the Bible are reasonably well constructed so that they can be approached as wholes. They are amenable to logical division and investigation by parts.

 

     But one must not expect the kind of logical construction in ancient oriental literature that one finds in modern Western books. There are no author-composed book titles, no writers' prefaces in which they state what they are about, no logically organized tables of contents, no end-of-chapter summaries, and no smooth transitions to subsequent chapters. Loose association of related materials, frequent repetition of essentially the same data and of editorial comments, inept expansions and asides, lack of assimilation or rough joining of source materials, and the like, are characteristic of ancient oriental literature (especially before the Hellenistic period) and offend the modern readers' concept of logic and style. Since the books of the New Testament were written to some extent under the influence of Greek literary standards, they are better organized (from our point of view) than most of the Old Testament ones.

A Message of Supreme Importance #2

Bible Studies

  The History of the Message

For several years before the 1888 session began, personal differences and animosities had been developing between two groups of church leaders. The Battle Creek brethren were led by George I. Butler, president of the General Conference, and Uriah Smith, editor of the Review and Herald. Associated with these men in their sympathies were several local conference presidents, in particular Elders R. M. Kilgore of Illinois, J. H. Morrison of Iowa, R. A. Underwood of Ohio, and I. D. Van Horn of Michigan, as well as a number of lesser lights.
The other group was led by E. J. Waggoner and A. T. Jones, who served as coeditors of the Signs of the Times and also as Bible teachers at Healdsburg College. Among their friends were W. C. White, S. N. Haskell, and C. H. Jones.
       Initially, the differences between these two groups centered on their interpretation of two passages of Scripture. The eastern brethren believed that the Huns were one of the 10 kingdoms of Daniel 7, and that the “added” law of Galatians 3:19-25 was the Jewish ceremonial system. The western brethren, on the other hand, favored the Alemanni instead of the Huns, and held that the added law was the moral law.
The fact that Waggoner and Jones were comparatively young men—in their 30s—while Butler and Smith were in their 50s tended to exacerbate the situation. Butler found it difficult to believe that two editorial fledglings could possibly understand the Bible better than he did.
     The estrangement between the two sides began when Waggoner published his views on Galatians 3 in the Signs of the Times of September 11, 1884. His explanation that the added law was the moral code flatly contradicted the interpretation accepted by Butler and Smith and probably by most contemporary Adventists as well. It so happened that E. J. Waggoner’s father, J. H. Waggoner, had taken a similar position 30 years earlier. The elder Waggoner had maintained in 1854 that “not a single declaration” in Galatians “referred to the ceremonial or Levitical law.” The epistle, he wrote, “treats solely of the moral law.” J. H. Waggoner, The Law of God (Rochester, N.Y. Review and Herald 1855) p. 74.
