Health Benefits of Omega-3’s

September 28, 2016

 

Essential Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for the body, holding a lot of benefits for the body and our central nervous system. The two well known Omega-3 fatty acids are DHA and EPA which is normally found in fatty fish.  But fortunately, Flodins Nordic farming methods and years of research into healthier eating have resulted in delicious Omega-3 pork. Note that the higher content of Omega-3’s also makes the fat melt faster and is then infused in the meat creating juicy, succulent pork meat.

Children find Refuge from HIV stigma in China

September 28, 2016

 

Children- who doesn’t love them?! The world would be a dull and colorless place without them.  But what about a place where children face stigma and disregard? It’s horrible to even imagine such a thing possible, but to our dismay, it is true. Children living with HIV confront discrimination every day, particularly in China. They are expelled from schools and villages for presenting a huge risk to others. HIV Advocates, a prominent voice against stigma and HIV/AIDS, advocates people living with HIV and fights for their rights.

The rates of social stigma and discrimination in China are high, children living with HIV are often left all alone. But where there’s darkness, kindness also dwells. A boarding school known as Green Harbor Red-Ribbon School in Linfen, China has provided refuge to many children living with HIV. The school, set up in 2006, houses up to 30 children from the ages between 6-19 years old. The level of awareness these children possess is mind-boggling. They fully comprehend their current situation and are well aware of how society perceives them. According to experts, the actual problem in China, is lack of awareness and education about the transmission and the effects of HIV.

But there’s also some good news. China’s leaders have made recent high-profile efforts to combat HIV prejudice in recent years, like stepping up free treatment for AIDS patients and measures to prevent mothers from passing on HIV to their newborn children. HIV Advocates promotes awareness as well as education and treatments in collaboration with human right movements to eliminate the global discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS.

Eat Your Medicine: How Food Can Heal Your Body

September 21, 2016

 

 

The need for clean, natural food in its rawest most pure form is of great importance and farmers and manufactures need to take care to provide this. For example, Flodins prides their company on delivering only the purest, freshest and most natural food products to their consumers.  They have received their meat for years from farms in the Nordic region that has the highest standards in ethical farming, animal care and environmental awareness with no pollution present- “controlling every step from farm to fork.” This enabled them to create their prized Omega- 3 Pork, which over years of research they have made their pork more tender, flavorful, with a better texture and is much healthier to consume.

hks3

Food, when it is grown without the use of growth propellers, pesticides and without environmental pollution, will be in its most pure form. Plant foods such as tomatoes, cabbage, garlic, and blueberries all carry what is called phytonutrients, which are molecules that act like triggers for your DNA to help fight off diseases and make your body healthier. Nutrigenomics is teaching us that our food can actually talk to our DNA and act as an on/off switch to our genes that either may lead to health or disease.

The white group such as garlic and onions contain the tumor-busting allicin. Spinach and collard greens are in the yellow and green group of plant food, and they contain carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin which wards of cataracts and possibly atherosclerosis. Lycopene found in red plant foods like tomatoes help rid the body of free radicals. Cantaloupes and pumpkins can ward of cancer with alpha-carotene, and the beta-carotene they provide can actually repair damaged DNA.

To sum up, the amazing molecules in all foods delivered by reputable, ethical farmers- like Flodins– help you stay healthy and strong. Hippocrates may have said it best; “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Ways to Be A Good Trans-Ally

September 21, 2016

 

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” 

Love is the biggest asset of any human being, but it ceases to exist in society due to discrimination, hate, and stigmatization of various groups. Everyone deserves to be loved no matter what ethnicity, nation, religious group, etc they belong to. The society in which we live finds it hard to accept these groups and develops a zero tolerance for them. HIV Advocates is an enterprise which advocates the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS and LGBTI communities. Their mission is to develop love and create a respectable place for these stigmatised communities in society.

ha3

Nowadays, the trend of discrimination seems to focus on the gender bias. The transgender community is continually subjected to sheer violence and segregated from the society. To reduce this gender-based hate, one must play a role by becoming a trans-ally. Calling Transgenders by the pronouns and names they prefer is the biggest act of respect for anyone, especially for your trans friend. Education and awareness through media can open people’s eyes and show them the reality of the transgender life. Just like everyone else, they need freedom of choice and support, not harassment and judgement. Last but not least; be sure to show them respect and include them in your daily life. To be a good trans ally, you must respect their personal right to disclose or hide their identity.

HIV Advocates aims for a society where all are treated as humans and shown love and equal respect – as only love can drive out hate.
