thank you

Dr. Vaggelis Fragiadakis is an amateur photographer and professional mathematician who was born in Greece, on the island of Crete. After completing his degree at the University of Athens, he decided to leave Greece and venture out into the unknown. After much difficulty he found himself in the U.S. where he lives and works today, keeping with him a keen sense of the Mediterranean spirit and understanding for the poor and older people. His love for art and the world that surrounds him led him to photography, and his fascination for portraits of old wrinkled people, anguished by hard work and life. Travelling around the world, Fragiadakis photographs people on the streets, immersing himself in their character while still supporting each person’s individuality and placing human dignity above everything. He…

Firstly, there was a lack of food which was needed for…

why algae is great for detoxifying

One of the reasons people become chronically ill is due to toxic build-up. The consistent introduction of toxins to our body has overwhelmed it to the point that it can no longer detoxify itself efficiently.When this occurs, toxic build-up accumulates and adversely affects the health of our cells, which results in accelerated ageing and disease. Fortunately, there are some powerful foods that can help detoxify your body efficiently, and algae are certainly one of the best. Some of their detoxification abilities include:• Detoxes the body from biotoxins such as tuberculosis, lyme disease, tetanus toxins, mould, phytates, dioxins, pesticides, and industrial waste• Binds and helps eliminate heavy metals like mercury, lead, nickel, and aluminum• Promotes production of healthy flora, bacteria, and probiotics, which results in an effective, clean and toxic-free digestive system• Promotes a properly…
