Important health facts

Posted by Raj's blog on November 17, 2008

  • Dont keep the mobile closer to ears until the recipient answers. Because directly after dialing, the mobile phone would use it’s maximum signaling power, which is: 2watts = 33dbi. Please be careful. Please use left ear while using cell (mobile), because if we use the right one it may affect brain directly. This is a true fact from Apollo medical team.
  • Cotton Ear Buds… Please do not show sympathy to people selling buds on roadside or at Signals by buying their ear buds (instead we can give them money without taking their ear buds)….. Those were made from cotton that has already been used in hospitals. They take all the dirty, blood and pus filled cotton, wash it, bleach it and use it to make ear buds.

Loss of hair at a very tender age has become a common disorder these days.

Hair is formed in minute pockets in the skin, called follicles. An upgrowth at the base of the folic, called the papilla, actually produces hair ; when a special group of cells turn amino acids into keratin, a type of protein of which hair is made. The rate of production of these protein ” building blocks.” determines hair growth.

The most important cause of loss of hair is

1. Inadequate nutrition.
2. Stress leads to a severe tension in the skin of the scalp. It makes the roots of the hair weak, resulting in the falling of hair.
3. Heredity is another predisposing factor which may cause hair to fall.

The healthy condition of the hair depends, to a very large extent , on the intake of sufficient amounts of essential nutrients in the daily diet. Hair is made of protein and adequate protein is necessary for luxuriant hair.

Lack of inositol causes loss of hair. Any person having trouble with his or her hair should eat foods rich in inositol such as yeast, liver and molasses.

Persons with a tendency to lose hair should thus take a well balanced and correct diet.
It has been found that a diet which contains liberal quantities of

( i) seeds, nuts and grains,
( ii) vegetables and
(iii) fruits

would provide adequate amounts of all the essential nutrients.

Quick remedies for hairfall

1.The most effective remedy is a vigorous rubbing of the scalp with fingers after washing the hair with cold water.

2.Amla oil, prepared by boiling dry pieces of amla in coconut oil, is considered a valuable hair tonic for enriching hair growth.

3..Daily application of refined coconut oil mixed with limewater and lime juice on the hair, prevents loss of hair and lengthens them. Application of the juice of green coriander leaves on the head is also considered beneficial.

4.Another effective home remedy for loss of hair is the application of coconut milk all over the scalp and massaging it into the hair loss. It will nourish the hair and promote hair growth.

Posted by Raj's blog on November 4, 2008

Please don’t eat the skin of the apple because it’s coated with wax.
Check before eating any of the fruits.

WAX is being used for preservation purposes and cold storage.

Poisonous Sugarcane juice

Posted by Raj's blog on October 13, 2008

A friend whose father works for the government health inspection passed on this information.

Their job is to inspect all hawkers, their cooked food, their store hygiene, etc. They found sugar cane juice has the highest content of bacteria among all food. In fact, it has exceeded the set limit.

Hence, they had to find out why. They went round all sugar cane stores and watched the way the hawkers handled their sugar cane, wash their glasses, their entire procedure.But they couldn’t find the problem.

One day, they stayed till closing time and discovered some shocking facts! Whenever, the hawkers closed their stores, they would wash the floor with detergent.

As we know, the remaining sugarcanes will be placed at the back of the store, vertically standing and as sugarcanes are very porous, they tend to absorb whatever liquid around them.

Besides the soapy water, the dirt on hawkers’ boots, cats’ urine, etc, will all be absorbed??

A friend, who loved sugar cane juice, was pregnant. She was always drinking sugar cane juice. Anyway, one day she miscarried and the fetus was already like 6 or 7 months old.

When the doctors did an autopsy to find out why all of a sudden the fetus had died inside her, they found traces of some chemical substance, which was found in cat urine. Large traces of it.

While it would not be able to harm adults, it was extremely toxic to babies, what more a fetus? So they tried to determine how this cat urine thing could have ended up in the fetus.

This meant that it had to be digested by the mother, right? And the only logical conclusion they could come up with was that since these sugar cane juice stall holders just leave the canes lying around on the wet and dirty floor, it would not be impossible to think that stray cats could have peed on those sugar canes or near those sugar canes.

So think carefully the next time when ordering that favourite sugar cane juice!

Let’s take action to make this world a better & safer place for ALL of us & the generations to come.
Is there anyone who is going to take Sugarcane juice from hawkers anymore?

Heart Attacks and drinking hot water/tea

Posted by Raj's blog on September 25, 2008

Heart Attacks and drinking hot Water/tea

The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this “sludge” reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or hot water/tea after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks – You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive..
