Healthy eating

The main healthy eating messages are the same for everybody. As part of a healthy balanced diet, we should all be trying to do the following:

* eating at least five portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day
* basing meals on starchy foods such as pasta, rice, cereals and pulses such as beans, peas and lentils. These should make up about a third of the diet
* trying to cut down on food that is high in saturated fat and having foods that are rich in unsaturated fat instead, such as vegetable oils (including sunflower, rapeseed and olive oil), avocados, nuts and seeds
* trying to grill, bake, poach, boil, steam, dry-fry or microwave instead of frying or roasting in oil
* eating some protein foods such as dairy products, eggs or pulses and having a variety of these foods
* cutting down on sugar
* watching how much salt we're eating - it's a good idea to check food labels and try not to add salt to your food when you're cooking

* drinking about 1.2 litres (6 to 8 glasses) of fluid a day or more if you exercise

But you also need to make sure you're getting enough nutrients, especially protein, iron and selenium, which can sometimes be lacking in a meat-free diet.

Power

Mobile phones are generally obtaining power from batteries which can be recharged from mains power source. previously, the most common form of mobile phone batteries were nickel metal-hydride, as they have a low size and weight. Sometimes lithium-Ion batteries are used, as they are lighter and do not have the voltage depression that nickel metal-hydride batteries do. Many mobile phone manufacturers have now changed to using lithium-Polymer batteries as to oppose the older Lithium-Ion, the main advantages of this being even lower weight and the possibility to make the battery a shape other than strict cuboid. Mobile phone manufacturers have been experimenting with alternate power sources, including solar cells etc….

In addition to the battery, most cellphones require a small microchip, called a SIM Card, to operate.. Approximately the size of a one-cent postage stamp, the SIM Card is installed underneath the battery in the rear of the unit, and stores the phone's configuration data, and information about the phone itself, such as which calling plan the subscriber is using. When the subscriber removes the SIM Card, it can be re-inserted into another phone and used as normal this can be done easily..

Each SIM Card is activated by a unique numerical identifier ; once activated, that identifier is locked down and the card is permanently locked in to the activating network. Sim cards plays a major role in the mobile phones….
