BANANAS
A very interesting FACTS

Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!…
This is interesting. After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.

But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:

“I was driving near the mall and I saw this girl with my tour T-shirt on. She was probably 11. I made a U-turn and tried to follow her—I really had to do some maneuvering. I found her in a video-game store and just kind of walked up to her and said, ‘Oh, hi. I wanted to meet you.’ She had no idea what to say for about three minutes. Then her mom walked over, burst into tears, and proceeded to tell me that they’d driven all the way from Austin, Texas, just to see where I was discovered.” 
THATS WHY I LOVE HER

Simply put, Elizabeth Taylor was the biggest star of the LIFE era. She appeared on the magazine’s cover a record 14 times, starting when she was just 15 years old, and over the following decades many LIFE photographers — Paul Schutzer, Peter Stackpole, Allan Grant, and George Silk among themcaptured the astonishingly beautiful movie star as she basked in love, work, motherhood, and the kind of international fame that few entertainers these days can ever hope to achieve. But a magazine only has so many pages — and several stunning images of the Hollywood icon never actually made it to print. In this gallery, LIFE.com presents the best unpublished photos of Elizabeth Taylor from the magazine’s archives, including shots from her very first wedding, from the sets of Giant and Cleopatra, and from her legendary romance with two-time husband Richard Burton. Here, a never-before-published photo by Peter Stackpole that even predates Taylor’s first LIFE cover: In 1945, at age 13, the breakout star of National Velvet signs autographs during a charity cricket match at Los Angeles’ Gilmore Stadium.

Jean Negulesco (1900 - 1993) paints a portrait of a nude model in his Hollywood studio. The Romanian-born is known today as a major Hollywood screenwriter and director of the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s, working on classic films like Humoresque, Titanic, How to Marry a Millionaire and dozens of others. But painting was his first love, and he pursued it his whole life.
