Spinach-The Eye Remedy.

Dear Sir,

Spinach helps to improve eyesight you can have 20/20 vision you just have to take a little more care of your eyes and no more waste of money on other treatment. Lutein is the pigment found in foods like green leafy vegetables that gives it its color. It is found in the yolk of eggs. You can buy spinach canned or frozen but it is most nutritious when purchased fresh. Originally it was found in southwest Asian and was unknown to Romans and Greeks but first began to be cultivated by the Persians. It is grown universally except for in the very warm climates. It came into use first as a medicinal plant because of its oxalic acid. Spinach is hailed as a super food because it has so many vitamins and minerals. It is low in calories.

The best exercise is Dot exercise, to do this a period or comma on the page and focus on creation it as clear as possible. Stare at the period until it comes into focus. Chances are after a few seconds the period will actually become less clear and blurry. Try relaxing your eyes. Close them for a minute and let them relax. Now look at the period without straining.

Spinach if probably one of the better vegetables you can eat for your eye health and eye vision. Spinach is loaded with Leutin, a carotene that we already know thatís important to fight of eye diseases. But exactly how does Lutein work? This is pretty boring stuff, so letís be brief: Lutein in your eyes absorbs blue light, which is the most dangerous type of light for your eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin protects the eye from damage by UV light. Spinach is not only high in Lutein, but it also has abundant vitamin A and C, fiber, and potassium. Studies have shown that a diet with regular spinach dishes improves your overall health, and especially health for your eyes.

This leafy green is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, potassium, and vitamin B6. Itís a very good source of protein, phosphorus, vitamin E, zinc, dietary fiber, and copper. Plus, itís a good source of selenium, niacin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although the mechanism by which egg yolk increases lutein bio availability is not yet known, it is likely due to the fats (cholesterol and choline) found in egg yolk since lutein, like other carotenoids, is fat-soluble and cannot be absorbed unless fat is also present. To maximally boost your lutein absorption from spinach, I suggest enjoying this vegetable, whether steamed, sauteed or fresh in spinach salad, with a little olive oil and/ or a topping of chopped hard-boiled egg to provide your body with some fats to help enhance the bio availability of this fat-soluble phytonutrient.

Eating spinach helps to cure the eyesight as observed, benefits are that its soothes and relaxes your eyes, and enhances local blood circulation, which improves your vision. It keeps you healthy eating spinach has no side effects.

Psychological help is essential for the acid burn victims.

Respected Sir,

Through the courtesy of your highly acclaimed and circulated news paper i want to highlight the misery of acid burn victims, although the government has worked on this issue for a while but this problem is again needed to be address with required effectiveness.

It is difficult to understand the feelings of acid burn victims as they pass from a phase of mental distress and develop a feeling of inferiority by the shocking reaction of the society and thus restrict themselves to their homes. The motivations for acid attack in Pakistan range from men attacking women over the rejection of marriage or any form of intimate relation to religious fundamentalist attacking unknown women because they felt the women were too modern and westernized and husbands may do so in fear of doubt on their wives character. Although some NGO's are working to rehabilitate these victims but psychological help is essential for the victims healing. It is need to be there from day one that the survivor needs it to bear the pain and treatment to deal with the disfigurement. Psychiatric consultation is appropriate for all such patients to get psychological support and the required medication, reconstructive surgery, skin grafting and physical therapy. We as a nation should support such victims by morally and emotionally encouraging them to live a better life and face the stigma, the threats and the trial with bravery.

It is my kind request to the government and our society so they may take adequate steps to provide relieve to such victims and give them a equally respect and position in the society.


Your's Sincerely,
Saqib Sarfraz,
