Onrepparttar other hand, there are those who swear by cookingrepparttar 144299 prime rib in a hot oven. This method reduces prime rib cooking times torepparttar 144300 minimum while searingrepparttar 144301 exterior ofrepparttar 144302 meat so that it containsrepparttar 144303 juices. When placed in a 500 oven, a 12 pound roast will cook in less than an hour.

This fast cooking method, however, depends onrepparttar 144304 roast staying inrepparttar 144305 warm oven for at least one more hour afterrepparttar 144306 heat is turned off. During this time,repparttar 144307 meat is still cooking, so you could say that this method requires prime rib cooking times of three hours.

No matter which way you cookrepparttar 144308 meat, you have to checkrepparttar 144309 interior temperature to make sure that it is cooked allrepparttar 144310 way through. A good-quality meat thermometer will tell yourepparttar 144311 temperature ofrepparttar 144312 roast and you might have to extendrepparttar 144313 prime rib cooking times by an hour or two.

Coffee and Asthma! Huh?

Written by Randy Wilson

Continued from page 1

The risk of asthma symptoms fell by 28% when patients drank three or more cups of coffee every day.

In 1992,repparttar Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES II) examined over twenty thousand Americans. The study found thatrepparttar 143596 risk of symptoms from patients with asthma going intorepparttar 143597 study fell dramatically (over 29%) when patients who regularly drank coffee were compared with patients who did not drink coffee on a regular basis.

In addition,repparttar 143598 risk of patients suffering from wheeze fell almost 13%. A relationship was also found betweenrepparttar 143599 amount of coffee consumed andrepparttar 143600 effects gained byrepparttar 143601 asthma patients. Those who drank more coffee had fewer symptoms; those who drank less coffee had more symptoms.

Another smaller coffee and asthma study was performed on nine adult asthmatics using four daily doses of caffeine similar torepparttar 143602 doses contained in coffee. This study showed a dose response effect of caffeine on forced expiratory volume (FEV), forced expiratory flow (FEF) and specific airway conductance (Gaw/VL). This data also suggests that caffeine is an effective tool to use in opening airways during an onset of asthma.

While doctors will never advise drinking coffee asrepparttar 143603 sole treatment for asthma as they did hundreds of years ago, they do agree thatrepparttar 143604 caffeine found in coffee is particularly beneficial in an emergency situation. Anecdotal evidence shows that people have used coffee in situations where inhalers were completely unavailable, such as when on vacations and on an airplane. Coffees are particularly useful in these situations, asrepparttar 143605 patients might otherwise suffer serious consequences due to their inability to breathe properly.
