Dandelion is a meadow plant, and native to Europe.They grow everywhere that plant life can be supported. We in US dig out and abate this miracle plant, with many harmful and expensive chemicals. 
All parts of the dandelion can be used for many things.
The yellow edible flower of the dandelion is beautiful and abundant with no care. 
Dandelion leaves have many nutritional value. According to a USDA health bulletin: “dandelions are nature’s richest green vegetable source of beta-carotene, from which Vitamin A is created, and the third richest source of Vitamin A of all foods, after cod-liver oil and beef liver! They also are particularly rich in fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and the B vitamins, thiamine and riboflavin, and are a good source of protein.” Grown in nutritious soil, dandelions may also be rich in micro nutrients “such as copper, cobalt, zinc, boron, and molybdenum, as well as Vitamin D.” Like all leafy greens, dandelions are also contain lots of calcium, protein, Vitamin C, and fiber.

Dandelion leaves are at their optimum and tasty and tender before their flowers emerge in early spring. After flowering and because of  heat from the sun, the leaves get tough and more bitter. However, dandelion leaves can still be eaten raw or cooked. 
Dandelion roots can be roasted and used for a coffee like drink.
Dandelion leaves, tender or tough, tasty or bitter cleanses the blood stream and liver, increasing the production of bile. It improves the function of the pancreas, spleen, stomach and kidneys. Dandelion has been used to treat eczema, diabetes, fever, and inflammation of the bowels. It can also heal rheumatism, gout, jaundice, constipation, breast tumors and fluid retention. New research has shown that it may prevent breast cancer, lower cholesterol and uric acid. Dandelion releases toxins from the blood, and helps to disperse premenstrual tension. prevents the hardening of stones in the gall bladder, and dissolves warts. It is useful for getting rid of many kind of congestion.
  With all these benefits, do you remember eating these free and abundant leaves, flowers or roots? If not, they are worth looking into.
I rather have fried Dandelion Blossoms, Dandelion Jelly, Soup, Salad and Dandelion Greens with garlic and olive oil than pharmaceutical drugs that they make from this plant.

You can find the reasons and cures for all these items in this blog now or in the future.

BMI Calculator

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It measures the ratio of one's body weight to their height. It also tries to give an idea of the amount of body fat a person has. Two people can have the same BMI but different levels of body fat(because Muscle weighs more than fat). A high percentage of body fat increases the chances of heart disease, Type II diabetes, and cancers. *******************************************
