Exotic Pet Dangers In Orange County

Exotic Pet Dangers In Orange County

Does your child have an unusual pet? Many Orange County parents have bypassed cats and dogs for pets that don’t leave hair, urine, or vomit on the carpet. Ease of care, however, is not always a wise trade-off. Orange County parents should be aware of the multiple health and safety risks associated with reptiles, rodents, ferrets, primates, and even fish.

The following list of pets and the possible dangers reads like a script for a horror movie:

Fish: infections that can cause lung disease, skin infections, and leprosy
Hamsters: a virus that causes irreversible nerve damage
Hedgehogs: salmonella, yersinia pseudotuberculosis, rabies, and fungal infections
Iguanas, lizards, snakes: salmonella (the animals themselves can tolerate levels of salmonella far greater than humans)
Monkeys and other primates: herpes B (can cause meningitis in humans), tuberculosis, serious injury
Ferrets: these fierce critters with razor-sharp teeth have maimed many children
Prairie dogs: tuleremia (often fatal infection)
African Gambian rats: monkeypox (smallpox-related disease)

The foregoing information was taken from an excellent U.S. News article which can be found at http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/on-parenting/2008/10/06/8-pets-that-pose-major-health-threats-to-kids

With proper hygiene and safety precautions these pets may not cause problems, but it is important to understand the possible dangers. Consult an expert for comprehensive instructions on caring for any traditional or non-traditional pet.

Is Juicing Better For Los Angeles Kids?

Is Juicing Better For Los Angeles Kids?

Los Angeles health trends come and go and I have recently noticed that the practice of juicing fruits and vegetables has made its way back into the California children’s nutrition spotlight.

In my experience, I have found that the only Los Angeles parents who have been successful at making their own super-healthy juices over the long term are Los Angeles vegetarians who dedicate a lot of daily time to preparing their food.

Most Los Angeles people who buy an expensive juicer use it for a few weeks before it is relegated to the back shelf of the pantry. Though juicing provides a way to improve your children’s nutrition, it can be time-consuming and expensive. After buying fresh fruits and vegetables, it can cost several dollars to make one glass. Of course, if you have ever tasted fruit and vegetable juices made fresh, you know how delicious they are. For many Los Angeles parents, this is worth every minute and every dollar spent.

Does juicing provide more nutrition than eating whole fruits and vegetables?

I haven’t come across any convincing evidence of this but I do see the value for Los Angeles parents whose kids enjoy drinking juice more than eating whole fruits and vegetable. Mixing vegetables with sweet fruits in a juice can disguise their taste and make them more palatable than the same vegetables raw or cooked.

Los Angeles parents who would like to start juicing should keep in mind the fact that juicing usually removes all the fiber from the fruits and veggies used. A glass of fresh juice also contains a lot of calories!

Manhattan Beach Parents: Is Your Child’s Car Seat Safe?

Manhattan Beach Parents: Is Your Child's Car Seat Safe?

Anyone in Manhattan Beach who transports kids in their car should regularly review the child safety seat regulations. California and federal laws are periodically updated. Manhattan Beach parents who think their six year-old doesn’t need to be in a booster seat may be surprised to learn that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that children stay in a booster seat until their height and weight exceed the manufacturer’s limits.

Complete recommendations can be found at http://www.nhtsa.gov/Safety/CPS

Here are some quick facts for Manhattan Beach parents:

  • Keep infants and toddlers rear-facing as long as possible.
  • Upgrade child safety seat when child reaches max height and weight for each particular model.
  • Most California Wal-Mart, Target, and Babies-R-Us stores carry safety seats for all ages.
  • Manhattan Beach children are ALWAYS safer in the back seat and those under twelve should never ride in the front seat.

I am Xe energy drink distributor Patti Langell. Thanks for visiting my Manhattan Beach children’s health site. If you would like information about a terrific nutritional product available in Manhattan Beach, call, text, or email me today.

Does Your California Family Have An Emergency Kit?

Does Your California Family Have An Emergency Kit?

Smart residents prepare for emergencies, and parents of young children in the Los Angeles area should be aware of the special nature of preparing their families for emergencies.

Since the health and safety of all family members is important, everyone’s needs should be taken into account when preparing emergency provisions.

A 72-hour emergency kit should be easy to grab and contain essentials like water, food, first aid kit, flashlight, prescription medications, etc. Manhattan Beach families should consider what each child eats. Formula and bottles should be included if you have infants, and soft baby food (and a spoon!) for toddlers. Don’t forget diapers and baby wipes: you can find convenient travel sizes of these at Southern California, Los Angeles area, and Orange County area drugstores.

Since healthy kids grow and change so quickly, Manhattan Beach families should update these emergency kits at least twice a year.
A good reminder is daylight savings time. When Los Angeles families change their clocks, they should change the food and supplies in their kits.

I’m Patti Langell and the health and safety of Manhattan Beach kids is important to me. I am the owner of a home business that sells xobiotic. If you would like to learn more, please call me at 310-200-7097 or visit me on the web at http://mxi.myvoffice.com/yeahchocolate/.

Turn Your Car Into A Mobile Manhattan Beach Office

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Turn Your Car Into A Mobile Manhattan Beach Office If you are a busy Los Angeles home based business owner, you may have noticed that your work-at-home job has turned into a work-in-car job. I have been operating a direct marketing business out of my Manhattan Beach home since October 2008, but I spend a considerable amount of time on the road in the 90266 zip code area.

One day, I realized that the back seat was covered with xobiotic samples, the floor was covered with Xe energy drink brochures, and the dash was covered with sticky notes.

I have a beautiful office in my Manhattan Beach home: it is organized, comfortable and well-supplied. Why couldn’t I create a mobile version of my home office in my car?

I got to work. I headed out to my closest Manhattan Beach office supply store. I purchased a hanging file folder for paperwork and sturdy plastic boxes to organize samples in my trunk. (One of my xobiotic team members uses heavy cardboard banker’s boxes to hold samples. She thinks they are easier to label.)

Next I had to tackle the little stuff: paper clips, sticky notes, and pens. I found that cup holders can be great organizers.

If you want to invest in gadgets for your car office, there are endless possibilities:

  • Car desks that are secured with a seat belt
  • Car printers
  • Wireless mouse you direct with your thumb
  • Device that turns your cigarette lighter into a USB port

To be a successful xobiotic network marketer in Manhattan Beach, I need to be ready when a sales or recruiting opportunity unexpectedly presents itself. Now that my car office is organized, I am much better at capitalizing on these opportunities.

To learn how to expand your Los Angeles MLM network, call me today. The xobiotic opportunity is providing residual income for Los Angeles entrepreneurs just like you.

P.S. It may be a good idea to tell your Los Angeles auto insurance provider that you use your car for more than commuting. Some carriers don’t cover claims for vehicles that are used as mobile offices. Discuss your situation with your agent to protect yourself and your Manhattan Beach business.

Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Manhattan Beach

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Manhattan Beach My name is Patti Langell and I am a children’s health advocate in Manhattan Beach, California. Most California parents notice behavioral effects when they feed their kids highly processed foods full of sugar and additives.

Los Angeles elementary teachers advise sending fruit, vegetables, and protein in children’s lunches and leaving processed, sugary snacks at home. They notice that Manhattan Beach children who eat healthy learn and behave better.

When shopping at your Los Angeles grocery store you may want to start reading labels on snacks more carefully. A recent study conducted by Britain’s Food Standards Agency (their version of the FDA) found that seven dyes could affect children’s intelligence by up to five IQ points! When reading California food labels check for Yellow #5, Yellow #6, and Red #40. In fact, Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

My kids love dried apricots, raisins, sliced apples with sunflower seed butter, and snap peas. If you would like more information on improving your Manhattan Beach child’s health and nutrition through healthy snacking please contact me today! – Patti

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Manhattan Beach Kids Fall Asleep

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Manhattan Beach Kids Fall Asleep

Southern California parents know that sleep is important for their child’s health. If your Manhattan Beach child has a hard time falling asleep, you may want to try a bedtime snack. Well-chosen evening snacks can help ease the transition to sleep.

Eating too much before bedtime is never a good idea for anyone, but a small snack may be just the ticket to dreamland for little ones in Southern California. Foods containing the amino acid tryptophan are a natural sleep aid, especially if they are coupled with carbohydrates, which help make tryptophan more available to the brain.

Bedtime foods you can purchase at your local Manhattan Beach grocer include soy milk, dairy products, nuts, seeds, and legumes, such as lentils or chick peas. These foods coupled with a healthy carbohydrate make the perfect bedtime snack. Your Manhattan Beach kiddos will be visiting the sandman before you know it.

Try a glass of soy milk with a few whole grain crackers or string cheese and apple slices. Low-fat cottage cheese with pineapple helps my munchkins fall asleep.

I am a local Xe energy drink representative and a children’s health advocate. If you live in Los Angeles, Southern California, or Los Angeles area and would like to learn more about children’s health contact me today!
