Our heart is an organ that works tirelessly every day and night so that our body can get oxygenated blood. We should try to protect it so that it can continue beat at a regular rate at all times. However, many people unknowingly may be harming this precious organ on a daily basis causing rapid heartbeat. Causes of Rapid heartbeat: 1. Stress from work, exams, gambling, not being liked by peers/social media /colleagues, taking care of relative with chronic, terminal or autoimmune diseases, toxic relationship like abusive spouse, parents, children, boss, colleagues 2. Coffee contains caffeine. It can cause the heart to beat faster 3. Medicines can cause rapid heartbeat e. g. Asthma medicine, deconge smoking during medicines, cocaine, some blood pressure medicine, depression/anxiety medicines, Thyroid medicines, etc. 3. Toxic Pollutants From: A) Cigarette Smoking: A chain smoker is not only a first hand smoker, he is also the second and third hand smoker of other smokers. He puffs multiple times every day so do other chain smokers. Therefore, he is exposed to first, second and third hand smoking multiple times a day. Multiply by the number of smokers, multiply by the of times each smoker smoke per day multiply the number of days smoked to date. This is how much cigarette toxin each person is exposed to. This is just one type of toxin. Third hand smoking is when the smoking has stopped, the cigarette particles that settle on the sofa, curtains, tables or even the inhalation of smoker's breath. The effects of third hand smoking is the same as second hand smoking. Hence, it is wrong to think so long as the smokers smoke outside the building, the family members or the colleagues are not in danger of getting the diseases caused by smokers. The greatest victims are the non smokers including vulnerable foetuses, children, healthy people. Hence, every year there are many non smokers diagnosed with lung or nose cancer . This also explains why some children at a very young age, without any family history can get cancer due to the pregnant mother's exposure to second and third hand smoking during gestation. The pregnant mother has the immunity system to protect herself from grievous damage unlike the foetus whose immunity system is not yet fully developed. Please bear in mind the toxins are cumulative. B) Gas used for cooking. Each cook is exposed whenever a meal is cooked .Multiply by the number of times cooked multiply the number of days todate. Celebrity chef , Sam Leong is diagnosed with stage 4 nose cancer. I have seen quite a number of his programmes where gas was used in his cooking. Gas is toxic. Some people commit suicide using gas. It is advisable to use electric device to cook like zero BPA Philips steamer or Visions glassware using hot plate to cook. By the way, during an interview he mentioned he did excercise frequently. C) Severe Allergic reactions from various allergens like peanuts, bee sting, pollens, dust mites. A little known allergen is the incense. It is often misdiagnosed as insect bite. The severe allergic incense sufferers can actually die due to lack of oxygen supply to the heart or brain because the normal blood pressure can plummet to dangerously low levels. Alternatively, the incense sufferers can get stroke or heart attack due to the spike in the blood pressure as a result of the severe allergic reactions. The incense particles are very minute and can penetrate the glass windows or tiny gaps of the doors and windows. D) Exercise can cause rapid heartbeat. Enough people have died while exercising to convince me that it cannot be the answer to good health. The Biggest Loser trainer, Bob Harper suffered from a severe heart attack while exercising. Famous marathoner, Jim Fixx dropped dead and died of heart attack while running. Other runners who died of heart attack while running include Micah True, 30 year old Claire Squires, Brain Maxwell just to name a few. Dr. Missy Woodward, a pediatric physician died while working out at the gym. I do not exercise because I want "my heart to go on" like the Titanic song. Yet I have zero health problem. I used to be obese, suffering from high cholesterol, joint pain, pigmentation, arthritis due to medicines taken when I was a sickly child. In the past, I did exercise diligently but none of my conditions improved. In the end, I was able to resolve all my health problems using appropriate food to heal. If you don't harm your body with the toxic food, drink, exercise or air pollutants basically your organs will do a great job and they won't shut down suddenly like the heart. Think about it, if exercise is good for the body why does it cause rapid heartbeat rate and end up killing the victims who want to maintain good health? If we don't want our heart to stop beating don't stress it by making it beat faster through exercise, toxic food/drink and carcinogenic air pollutants . If you think you are doing the right thing, turn out you are wrong, the price paid could be irreversible and tragic. Learn from the mistakes made by the dead and the survivors. Not every one is given a second chance like Bob Harper.
