Good afternoon and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Maybe This Was the Way It Really Happened: Evee’s Story by JadeRowan Restrepo.


About the Book:


Evee recounts the unbelievable tale of her past to her young sons. She is finally forced to tell them the truth of the grave mistake that will never be forgotten. It is a burden that she will, not only be remembered for, but also live with for the rest of her life. Will her sons forgive her? Or will she finally lose the last of everything that she has lost throughout the years?


My Review:


I’m a huge fan of biblical stories ever since my dad read them to me as a small child. I’m also a huge fan of looking at them from different perspectives and comparing them to historical events. That’s what I found fascinating about this book.


The author takes the story of Adam and Eve leaving Eden and retold it from the possible perspective of Eve. Seeing it unfold as she bears the weight of her actions as well as her struggles with Adam and Lilly was fun and, at times, unexpected.


The twists on what we’ve heard or read kept the story fresh making this is by far one of my favorite fictional retellings and I’m looking forward to what the author has in store for us in the future.

OPTION TO Typical Synthetic Supplements IS NECESSARY, Say Experts
Whole food supplements is currently a topic of worldwide interest. A profusion of evidence has recently come to light suggesting that ordinary synthetic multivitamin supplements may be hazardous to your health. Goran Bjelakovic, a reputed scientist from the University or college of Copenhagen, headed up a massive meta-study that looked at the results of 67 placebo-controlled trials previously undertaken to look for the effects of vitamin and anti-oxidant supplements on longevity. In the final end, the scholarly research combined observations of 232 000 test subjects. By using such a sizable population sample, a report can become a lot more powerful with regards to spotting large-scale tendencies and overcoming human being bias.
The results of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, were nothing significantly less than shocking. Taking a look at patients with diabetes, heart disease and lung cancers, as well as healthy, normal individuals, there was no apparent advantage to taking popular fractionated supplements like Supplement A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium, or beta-Carotene. In fact, the results proceeded to go in the opposite direction - there was a greater chance of death (16 percent) among Vitamin A users, a 7 percent higher death count amongst beta-Carotene users, and a 4 percent mortality upsurge in Vitamin E users. Beta-Carotene and Retinol, marketed as anti-carcinogenic agents, may promote lung cancer. That is right - pills marketed as assisting you towards a longer, healthier life are actually correlated with a speedier demise. This study used typical supplements on the marketplace made from synthetic vitamin supplements.
To add salt to the wound, a recent research published in the Uk Journal of Diet under the unimaginative title of "Ascorbic Acid Supplementation WILL NOT Attenuate Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness Pursuing Muscle-Damaging Exercise But May Delay The Recovery Process" indicated that supplementation with anti-oxidants from synthetic resources may reverse many of the beneficial effects of physical training.
Now, this is not to state that anti-oxidants or vitamin supplements are harmful to you. Far from it - these supplements were created on the basis of solid science. Anti-oxidants remain thought to protect cells from the ravages of free radicals. The nagging problem, rather, is the basic proven fact that you can get those advantages from synthetic isolated compounds. Disease and growing older are more complicated than test-tube studies can take into account usually. Furthermore, the problem of bioavailability can be an ever-present concern. Many typical synthetic supplements include large sums of the publicized vitamin, but lack the additional compounds had a need to ensure that their key elements are actually soaked up by the body. Passing through the digestive system straight, these 'miracle health remedies' often wind up doing little beyond giving people expensive urine. To the rescue...Entire Food Supplements.
