Top40 List of Edible Algae & Seaweed Earth’s SuperFoods! Read Vote Buy & Share!

This is a list of Edible algae. Algae range from microscopic one-celled diatoms to the large,multicellular seaweeds. Unlike plants, algae do not have true roots, stems and leaves.However, like plants, algae are producers that use the sun’s energy and the pigment chlorophyll to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars and oxygen through the process of photosynthesis Algae you can eat including the old “weed” seaweed that is, has most of the protein vitamins and minerals to sustain a human being if you eat enough. However we rcommend consulting with your “physician” before embarking on any diet too different from what you are used to. However this may be the best most natural diet you could ever possibly eat. If you like sushi you have probably eaten one or more of these seaweeds. Personally I like it in a powder or pill form to be swallowed with a smoothie or shake.  Not to mention you could grow it all in your bathtub at home, but that is a list topic for another day. So please read on and Thank you!

it40-irishmoss

Irish Moss has been used in Ireland since the beginning of the 19th century as a folk remedy for respiratory ailments. Its use was exported to New England in the USA by famine emigrees in the mid-19th century and was expanded to include sizing of ropes and cooking. Small amounts are still collected in Ireland for cooking and as a health drink. In Canada, Acadian Seaplants grow colour and morphological variants of this species (bottom photographs), which is sold dried as a novelty salad.

Sea lettuce is an edible green seaweed that grows along the coastlines of the world’s oceans. It is eaten by a number of sea animals including sea slugs and manatees, although humans have also eaten it for centuries. Characterized by its bright green color, lettuce-like appearance (hence the name), and somewhat waxy taste, sea lettuce can be eaten raw in salads or cooked in soups.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
