Bad food Bad mood

on Mar 27, 2021 in Health | 0 comments

Bad Food Bad Mood Many people crave for junk food when they are bored or depressed. In the long run, however, junk food is the cause of depression, according to studies.   Eating junk food increases the risk of becoming depressed, a study has found, prompting calls for doctors to routinely give dietary advice to patients as part of their treatment for depression. In contrast, those who follow a traditional Mediterranean diet are much less likely to develop depression because the fish, fruit, nuts and vegetables that diet involves help protect against Britain’s commonest mental health problem, the research suggests. Original article: junk food raises risk of depression   Researchers at the University of Melbourne examined over 1000 randomly selected women, ages 20-93, assessing for symptoms of depression and anxiety and comparing “traditional” diets to “western” diets. They...

Junk food and inflammation

on Mar 27, 2021 in Health | 0 comments

Junk Food and Inflammation Diets high in sugar and processed food make your immune system more aggressive, raising the level of inflammatory chemicals in your body. The harmful effects of junk food last a long time, even if you don’t eat it very often. Fascinating new research has shown the body reacts to a junk food meal in a similar manner as to a bacterial infection. This finding comes from a recent study from the University of Bonn. Eating unhealthy food makes your immune defenses more aggressive in the long term. Even if you switch to a healthy diet, the inflammation generated in your body through regular immune challenges becomes heightened. Such long term immune changes may raise the risk of arteriosclerosis and type 2 diabetes, both diseases linked to excess inflammation and a Western diet.  Read more on  junk food creates more inflammation Inflammatory bowel disease linked to...

The weaker vessel

on May 11, 2020 in 2020, Marriage | 0 comments

The weaker vessel by Ivan Ho   11 May 2020   Mother’s day should be celebrated together with Father’s day but that’s the world. Some people who grow up in single parenthood unfortunately usually can only feel the love and care of their moms but lack the guidance and discipline of their fathers . In I Timothy 2:11-14, 2 Timothy 3:6, I Peter 3:7, women are said to be weak and people think it is discrimination against women, but we must rightly divide the word. In my observation, many women are weak because of one thing: they lack bonding with their fathers either because their fathers being too busy with work or due to separation of their parents. God never intends to create woman to be strong on her own. Unfortunately due to the predominant spirit in our society, many women try to fight for equality and want to be strong on their own. They don’t understand...

Confession is key to salvation

Confession is key to salvation by Ivan Ho   8 May 2020   Are you saved just because Jesus died on the cross for the world? The answer is No. It is like in marriage, just because one party says he/ she loves you and wants to marry you does not mean you are married. God knows He loves you and accepts you unconditionally and that’s why He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins ( John 3:16). But does He know that you love Him and accept Him as well? You might say “God knows my heart” and that’s true but unless you verbalise what’s in your heart, you are not born again in Christ yet. Just like in marriage, not until you say “I do” directly to your spouse, you are not yet married. Confession is key to your relationship with God. The only way God knows that you want to commit your life to Him and follow Him is if you tell Him so. You must...

Sound view on marriage 3

on Nov 3, 2019 in 2019, Marriage | 0 comments

Sound view on marriage 3 by Ivan Ho  14 Oct 2019   But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ ; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”Mark 10:6‭-‬9   The above words of Jesus were similar to what Adam said when he first saw his wife Eve, as recorded in the book of Genesis: Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.Genesis 2:22‭-‬24   What Adam said was...
