Suicide is something that I've never understood. What does it take for a man or a woman to commit a dastardly act like this?
While one's motivation varies for an extreme act such as this, the thing is that it is purely a result of your actions.
And almost every action that you take either improves your life, or in the case of this instance, takes you in the other direction. Even the smallest choices either you take one step forward or two steps back… it's all what you want to do. Er, your choice…
But then again, some of us are not even aware of the choices that we make even when it comes to the mundane things that we take for granted. And perhaps that is where awareness plays a large part in our lives.
Knowledge about a subject changes our approach to living even if this relates to some of the simplest things in life as well.
Take for example, peanuts, that we're so used to associating it with fat men who consume large amounts of alcohol while also passing wind for extended periods of time.
Yet one will begin to find this view a bit skewed as soon as they that this little nut packs a punch especially when it comes to the calories that it offers its patron (for lack of a better word).
Peanut – Nutritional Value and Uses
Yes, regardless of its size, each peanut contains at least 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients as well. So you should know by now that I would be stating the obvious if I stated the fact that these nuts were extremely healthy for you.
And this extends to almost 30 nutrients in number among which some of the most important ones are protein (almost 25 %), vitamin E, fiber, magnesium, folate, manganese, niacin and phosphorus.
And one can safely surmise that the health benefits that come from this nut are numerous, and can benefit just about anyone who consumes, except for those who have an allergy to peanuts.
But its use does not end with its nutritional value that we can obtain in the form of salted peanuts, peanut butter sandwiches, candy bars, peanut brittle, and shelled nuts as there are several other uses such as being used an ingredients for paints, soaps and cosmetics.
In areas of famine, peanut oil and flour are used to make a peanut paste that is very useful to counter malnutrition.
Benefits of eating Peanuts
To say the least, there are numerous benefits to eating peanuts extending from protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer being one of the biggest health benefits that can be gained from eating these nuts.
Apart from these, peanuts is considered to be brain-food while also improving blood circulation as well as lowering cholesterol levels too.
Sadly, the only people who cannot benefit from this are those who have an allergy to peanuts, and for them even breathing peanut dust can cause a reaction that can affect their cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and respiratory system as well as their skin!
And as ghastly as this sounds, perhaps another way to commit suicide is to eat peanuts especially if you have the aforementioned allergy. (I know – that sounds really lame!)
