My Favorite Forwards: October 13, 2006
(Subtitle: Keep the Plunger Handy)

Forward #1: Cold Drinks WARNING! Do Not Drink Cold Drinks.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.


Forward #2: Lipstick Alert
Subtitle: You Can Never Have Too Many Exclamation Points

LADIES, STICK WITH YOUR MARY KAY OR REVLON LIPSTICKS. Lipstick Alert!!!!!!!!!!!! If there is a female you care anything about, share this with her. I did!!!!! I am also sharing this with the males on my email list , because they need to tell the females THEY care about as well! Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead . Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The Brands which contain lead are:
1. CHRISTIAN DIOR 2. LANCOME 3. CLINIQUE 4. Y.S.L 5. ESTEE LAUDER 6. SHISEIDO 7. RED EARTH (Lip Gloss) 8. CHANEL (Lip Conditioner) 9. MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK. The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer. After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand. 2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick. 3. If the lipstick color changes to black then you know the lipstick contains lead.
