Eating Fish – Your Key To A Healthy Heart

You would have come across several articles that claim that eating fish twice a week puts an end to various health issues and eliminates several health risks. In today’s show we delve into the truth behind this fact.

Fish especially those that have darker flesh like herring and salmon are chock full of heart healthy, good unsaturated, omega 3 fatty acids. Though these good fats impact your health in a good way, this is not the sole benefit of eating fish. The dietary guidelines proposed by the US health department state that adults should eat around eight ounces of fish and other seafood every week to get the whole lot of benefits of fish. The nutrients in seafood include Vitamins A, D, B, lean muscle building protein and other minerals like iron, zinc, selenium and iodine.

Fish is very low in cholesterol as well as saturated fat. Hence pregnant as well as breast feeding women are encouraged to eat around twelve ounces of fish. However you should avoid fish that has high methyl mercury like shark, tuna, sword fish and mackerel.

Fish is a preferred choice for protein than meat. Most people though only consider the omega 3 present in fish and do not consider a whole lot of other benefits that eating fish provides. On a comparison between the same portion size of cod and T-bone steak, it is found that fish contains twenty six grams of protein and only one gram of fat. The steak on the other hand though contains more proteins contains a higher amount of saturated fat. So, fish wins the battle hands down when it comes to the best source of protein.

However, remember that the nutrients depend on the type of fish you choose. So try to include all types of fish in your diet and do not forget to include nutrient rich river water fish.

Enjoy your fish and spike your health benefits!

1. The Day of Independent Record Houses is long gone
Record labels are slowly dying a fast death. They no longer attract new talents and are clinging desperately to their sole cash cows. New talents are looking to newer platforms, mostly online to launch themselves to fame. Streaming platforms have a great opportunity to limit exposure of artists and the process is bound to get optimized in the near future.

2. Artists are looking for alternative ways to make money
Streaming and downloading of music is not the only way by which artists make their money. The increasing popularity of music festivals provides a great way to generate revenue not only for the biggest names in the industry, but even for young and up-coming talents. Listening to your favorite artists live is gaining back popularity and this has led to the increase in tours and other ways to interact and perform before audiences.

What exactly is Internet Radio?
Internet radio is exactly what the name implies. You can transmit music, radio shows to millions of users all over the globe using the internet instead of air signals like traditional AM, FM radios. Internet radio is not bound by the limits of geography like conventional radio.

How does it work?
There are two major ways by which internet radio works.

Version I – You are the Originatorunnamed
In this method, you provide the audio or music to be transmitted right from your system to your listeners online. You can make use of software to turn your desktop into a server that streams audio. This helps your listeners to tune into your streaming station to listen to your channel. Apart from the streaming software you also need broadcasting software. The best thing is that this software is easily available online and you can even download them for free.

You can even purchase reputed software and get started with your own online internet radio station in no time. The one drawback of this method is that the number of listeners you can tune into your station all depends on the rate at which you can access the internet. For instance, if you have a poor internet connection then the number of listeners will be seriously restricted.

Version II – You use a Server as your Source
In this method, you still need the use of a broadcasting software but you send your audio to a server, which then uploads it to a streaming software. The major advantage of this method is that you can easily increase the number of listeners. The servers are typically equipped to handle plenty of requests at a time, thereby they can deal with several listeners at the same moment.
So what are you waiting for? Set up your dream internet radio station today.
