Preventing Cholera Infection
If you are traveling to an area where cholera is common, your chances of catching the disease are still low if you
wash your hands
drink only bottled or boiled water
avoid raw food and shellfish
avoid dairy foods
eat raw fruits and vegetables that you can peel yourself
Because cholera vaccines do not work very well and most people have a slim chance of catching cholera, your doctor is not likely to provide you with a vaccination. However, if you have had the vaccine and are going to be in a country where cholera is a threat, you may need a second dose or booster of the vaccine.

  • SuperFood - Bulgur Wheat

    Bulgur wheat is the groat form of wheat. It differs from cracked wheat in that it has been parboiled and dried. The most common types of bulgur have also had the bran removed, but whole grain bulgur is available, and this type has by far the best nutrition profile. Whole grain bulgur has a lower glycemic index than brown or white rice and buckwheat. It is not a gluten-free grain, however, since it is a form of wheat.
    Bulgur is an excellent source of several B vitamins—thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6, and folate—that are essential to metabolism and that help convert homocysteine into less harmful chemicals; this helps lower blood pressure and protect the heart. It also provides the minerals iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, and selenium, and it is high in fiber. The protein in bulgur is not complete. Like other grains, it lacks sufficient lysine, and therefore it should be eaten with foods such as beans or seeds that can provide this essential amino acid.
    Nutritional Facts :
    One cup of cooked bulgur provides 151 calories, 33.8 g carbohydrate, 5.6 g protein, 0.4 g fat, 8.2 g dietary fiber, 33 mcg folic acid, 124 mg potassium, 9 mg sodium, 73 mg phosphorus, 18 mg calcium, 58 mg magnesium, 1.75 mg iron, 1.04 mg zinc, and 1.11 mg manganese.
