Have you ever wondered? How fruits are able to hold out against many days or even weeks of being transported from different countries all over the world, but they  only last 2-3 days in your house?

1. They are harvested early 
They are harvested before reaching ripening time, they are then quarantined; that is put in rooms that are filled with gas. This is often storing them in nitrogen gas which extends the shelf life of some fruits like apples when stored at the right temperature. Maintaining such a sterile environment restrains the growth of aerobic spoiling organisms                     
Why not oxygen but nitrogen gas?

Yeah, what most people don't realize about oxygen is that, it is liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, especially for the worse. Oxygen degrades all kinds of materials.

 2. Temperature 
Just like your deep freezer in your house, fruits are kept cold and not frozen as the formation of crystals of ice can destroy plant state.

Lower temperatures slow the activities of fungi or bacteria that cause chemical reactions in fruits that make the fruits go bad.

 3. Humidity 
 A lot of living organisms rely on water to live, and lowering humidity either by refrigeration or direct removal of water from the surrounding air prevents fungal and bacterial growth.

4.Genetic modification 
The natural composition of fruits themselves affects how long they take to ripen and how long it takes for them to become overripe. For example, fruits with the genes for reduced ripening hormone production can be selected so their produce ripens slowly. Human beings can artificially interfere with these hormones to either slow or increase how fast they last.
In the nutshell all food items should be stored in right way so as to maintain their inherent conditions.

Learning How To Save Money Each Month From Salary Is Not Difficult At All!

Like many young people, I dread budgeting and paying expenses and thinking also about savings and pension. I have observed that living consciously means not only celebrating in this time, but taking care of things at this moment, when they are not huge, rather than wait when they get out of hand.With that in mind, I have a few tips for anyone else who wants to learn how to save money each month from salary.
1. Spend less than you make OK, this is almost the only tip you need. People spend more than they do not really have, and that is the biggest financial problem of such individuals.
