A deficiency in thiamine resulting from chronic alcohol consumption is one of the factors underlying alcohol–induced brain damage.
Vitamin B1, also commonly called thiamin, is a member of the B-vitamin family and most famous for its role in the nutritional deficiency disease beriberi. Beriberi, a word derived from the Sinhalese word beri meaning "weakness," is a disease that was widespread (particularly in parts of Asia) during the late 19th and early 20th century.
Thiamine is synthesized in bacteria, fungi, and plants. Animals must obtain it from their diet, and, thus, for them it is a vitamin.
Start with eggs that are atleast a week old. The fresher the egg, the tougher it is going to be to peel. Once you have finished cooking them, plunge them immediately into ice cold water. Roll gently on the counter, and then the shell should slip off easily. If it is still sticking, peel the eggs under cool running water.
Animal proteins. The average American eats twice as much protein as necessary for a healthy diet and much of that is from red meat. Getting protein from beans and grains is much healthier and reduces the risk for osteoporosis.
Every Friday at lunchtime, my daughter, Heather, would bring home the pictures she had drawn at nursery school. Since I would never ask, “What is it?” I would suggest that we sit down, have cookies and milk and she could tell me the stories of the pictures.
Fast-forward 40 years. A friend and I took classes at a local art school. After a month, I brought home my pictures and invited Heather to come and give me her opinion.
“Mom,” Heather said, looking at my drawings, “let’s have a coffee and you can tell me the stories.”
