Benefits ofVegetables And Fruits. BROCCOLI
How it combats cancer: Research has revealed that a
component called indole-3-carbinol can combat breast
cancer by converting a
cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective form.
sulforaphane raises the levels of certain
cancer-fighting enzymes that
defend the body from cigarette smoke, fumes, pesticides
& other known
Diet tips: Broccoli leaves actually contain more
pre-Vitamin A) than the florets - use leaves in purees,
stir-fries. To preserve broccoli's valuable nutrients,
steam or microwave,
being careful not to overcook. Avoid garnishing
broccoli with fatty
cheeses and creams instead, squeeze on some lemon juice
or sprinkle with
toasted bread crumbs.
How it combats cancer: Its plentiful store of vitamin
C works as an
antioxidant and may also reduce absorption of
nitrosamines from the soil or processed foods. Papaya
contains folacin (also
known as folic acid), which has been shown to minimize
and certain cancers.
Diet tips: Choose papayas that are at least half
yellow in the store
- fully green ones were probably picked too soon and
properly. You can serve papaya in fruit salad, add it
garlic-and-spinach pasta mixture, or just eat it on its
How it combats cancer: Garlic's immune-enhancing
allium compounds block carcinogens from entering
cells and slow tumor development. Diallyl sulfide,
a component of garlic oil, has also been shown to render
carcinogens in the liver inactive. Studies have linked
garlic - as well as onions, leeks, and chives - to
lower risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Diet tips: Add raw garlic to salads, use it fresh in
marinades and sauces; rub freshly cut garlic
around the insides of salad bowls and over chicken
and fish fillets. Avoid dried or powdered garlic, which
is less concentrated - and less effective
How it combats cancer: Research has shown that indoles,
nitrogen compounds found in kale and other leafy
greens, may help stop the
conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells in
In addition, isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found in
kale, are thought to suppress tumor growth and
block cancer-causing substances from reaching
Diet tips: A cruciferous vegetable, kale requires
quick cooking - blanching or steaming - to
preserve its nutrients. When you're done, save the
nutrient-rich cooking liquid for soups or sauces. You
can also use whole large leaves to wrap fillings
or to layer in lasagna.
How it combats cancer: This nutrient-dense food
contains many anticancer properties. It's loaded
with beta-carotene, which may protect DNA in the
cell nucleus from cancer-causing chemicals outside the
Diet tips: Go for freshness when picking potatoes -
canned arieties contain less beta-carotene and
vitamins C and B. Naturally sweet and creamy,
mashed sweet potatoes can be enhanced with a little
Or whip the cooked tubers with orange zest or orange
juice and season with cinnamon, nutmeg, and
How it combats cancer: Grapefruits, like oranges and
other citrus fruits, contain monoterpenes,
believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping
carcinogens out of the body. Some studies show that
grapefruit can inhibit the proliferation of
breast-cancer cells in vitro. It also contains
vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folic acid.
Diet tips: Grapefruit can be sweetened with brown
sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup or honey;

vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin
B12, fiber, and chlorophyll, as well as
chlorophylones - important fatty acids that may help in
the fight against breast cancer. Also, many sea
vegetables have high concentrations of the
minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and
Diet tips: Sea vegetables come fresh, dried, or
powdered. Both the Japanese & the Irish regularly
use them as flavorings for broths &
soups,stir-fried over rice, or as a wrap for fish and
other seafood. Varieties such as dulce, wakame,
kombu, and hijiki even appear in
pancakes,salads,puddings, and sandwiches.
How it combats cancer: Soy contains several types of
phytoestrogens -weak, nonsteroidal estrogens that
could help prevent both breast and prostate cancer by
blocking and suppressing cancerous changes.
Genistein,one type of phytoestrogen, also lowers
breast-cancer risk by inhibiting the growth of
epithelial cells & new blood vessels that tumors require
Diet tips: Tofu is made by coagulating the protein in
soybeans - much the way cheese is produced. While bland
on its own, tofu absorbs other flavors when cooked,
making it perfect for stir-fries, dips, spreads,shakes,
even cheesecake. It's also a good high-protein
substitute for meat, whole milk & mayonnaise.
ADDITIONAL NOTES (From Mansoor Hj Sukaimi)
Please note that ALL cruciferous vegetables (like
cabbage, broccholi, cauliflower, kale, Brussel sprouts)
CANNOT be taken raw as they contain oxalates which, if
taken in excess, may lead to gall stones. To get
maximum benefit from these vegetables, please do not
overcook them. Just "celuh" and take them with the
crispy "krek-krek" taste still intact.

The number ONE killer in Singapore
is cancer (followed by Heart
Disease & Stroke). Not all cancers are the same. 1/3 is
curable. 1/3 is preventable. 2 factors of cancer that
cannot be controlled are AGE & FAMILY HISTORY.
Causes of cancer:-
1. Smoking is very often the main cause of cancer. It
kills us silently and drains money from us quietly.
There're 4,000 harmful chemicals (though in diluted
form) in one stick of cigarette. Taking one puff is 600
times worst than inhaling the exhaust fumes from
2. Some food that cause cancer are: 2.1 Barbecued Food
2.2 Deep Fried Food
2.3 Overheating Meat
2.4 Food that is high in fat causes our bile to
secrete acid that contains a chemical which is a
promoter of cancer cells.
2.5 Food that contains preservatives, too much salt or
nitrates (e.g. Canned food, Salted egg & veggies,
2.6 Overnight Rice (where Aflatoxin is accumulated)
2.7 Food that is low in fibre: Our body needs 25 gm of
both soluble & insoluble fibre daily. We must drink at
least 1.5 litres of plain water a day.
2.8 Contaminated Food (e.g. moulded bread causes our
body to secrete toxins that may eventually lead to liver
cancer in the long run. Never eat bread that is kept in
room temperature for more than 2 days especially in a
humid weather like Singapore's.
3. Types of fat and which is the best?
3.1 Highly Recommended for Health:-
i. Olive Oil - The best of all
oils. It does not
absorb in our body.
ii. Fish Oil - Omega 3 (contained in
NI's Circulytes) haspoly-unsaturated fat. It's good for
our brain cells.
iii. Peanut Oil - It contains Vitamin
E. A small dosage is recommended only.
Not Recommended for Health
i Vegetable Fat - Palm oil is worst than
coconut oil. It is high in cholesterol and highly
ii Coconut Oil - It has saturated fat.
4. Specific Food & Beverages
4.1 Egg when eaten too much can cause High Colon
Cancer. Risk Ovary Cancer, Prostate Cancer.
4.2 Cabbage is highly recommended for health reason.
4.3 Tomato is best eaten raw with a bit of olive oil
for better absorption. Other alternative is to take
4.4 Coffee is good because it contains 2
anti-oxidants. Inhaling the coffee aroma for half each
day is equivalent to eating two oranges a
day. However, the residue of over-burned coffee is
extremely bad for health. It can cause cancer.
4.5 Tea, as long as it is in its original tea leaves
and not processed into BOH or Lipton packets, it is good
for health. Tea contains 30
anti-oxidants. Recommended dosage is 4 cups a day.
Exercise and be fit
Have a balanced lifestyle. Exercise regularly.
F : Frequency: 3 to 5 times a week.
I : Intensity: Exercise till we sweat and
T : Types of exercises: Find one that suits
our age, lifestyle, etc.
Have regular check-up
Once we reach the age of 45 & above, it is recommended
that we go for regular comprehensive health examination.
Early detection may save lives.
5) SALT THE CURE OF PAIN
I believe that most of your moms always tell you to
drink a glass of salt water/rinse your mouth with salt
water if you have a sore throat
because salt can reduce inflammation.
This method has actually been proven (medically) to be
really effective and it really can help to reduce
They have also tested on other medical values of salt
and found out that:
If you have pain in your joints/spine/body, you can
simply try out this method which can help to relieve the
pain (especially for old people who have rheumatism).
Simply fry the salt let it settle down for a while
before applying on affected areas. And if you have a
problem of Hair Loss, you can simply prepare a pail of
salt water and rinse your scalp/hair with it (it takes
about 2 weeks to a month). It will not help in growing
of new hair but can prevent. After tedious/strenuous
exercise, soaking your feet with salt water can help to
prevent cramps and pain., and also prevent from skin
irritation. Hope it will be of help to you.
6) HONEY & CINNAMON
It is found that mixture of Honey and Cinnamon cures
most of the diseases. Honey is produced in most of the
countries of the world.
Ayurvedic as well as Yunani medicine have been using
honey as a vital medicine for centuries. Scientists of
today also accept honey as a Ram Ban (very effective)
medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used
without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if
taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not
harm diabetic patients also. A
famous magazine named Weekly World News published in
dated 17 January, 95
has given a list of diseases that can be cured by Honey
and Cinnamon as researched by western scientists.
The list is shown below:
Take one part honey to two parts of luke warm water
and add a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder, make a
paste and massage it on the itching part of the body
slowly. It is noticed that the pain recedes within a
minute or two. Or arthritis patients may daily, morning
and night take one cup of hot water with two spoons of
honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If
drunk regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In
a recent research done at the Copenhagen
it was found that when the doctors treated their
patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half
teaspoon cinnamon powder before breakfast. They found
that within a week out of the 200 people so treated
practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain
and within a month. Mostly all the patients who could
not walk or move around because of arthritis started
walking without pain.
Those suffering from hair loss or baldness, may
apply a paste of hot olive oil, one tablespoon of honey,
one teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath and keep it
for approx. 15 min. and then wash the hair. It was found
very effective if kept for 5 mins. also.
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one
teaspoon of honey in a glass of luke warm water and
drink it. It destroys the germs of the bladder.
Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and
five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth.
This may be done 3 times a day daily till such time that
the tooth has stopped aching.
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of
Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, if
given to a cholesterol patient, it reduces the level of
cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours. As
mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken 3 times a day
any chronic cholesterol is cured. As per the information
received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food
daily relieves complains of cholesterol.
Those suffering from common or severe colds should
take one tablespoon luke warm honey with 1/4 teaspoon
cinnamon powder daily for 3 days. This process will cure
most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses.
Yunani and Ayurvedic have been using honey for
years in medicine to strengthen the semen of men.
If impotent men regularly take two tablespoon of honey
before sleeping, their problem will be solved. In China,
and Far-East countries, women who do not conceive and to
strengthen the uterus have been taking cinnamon powder
for centuries. Women who cannot conceive may take a
pinch of cinnamon powder in half teaspoon of honey and
apply it on the gums frequently throughout the day, so
that it slowly mixes with the saliva and enters the
body. A couple in Maryland,
had no children for 14 years and had left hope of having
a child of their own. When told about this process
husband and wife started taking honey and cinnamon as
stated above, the wife conceived after a few months and
had twins at full term.
7. UPSET STOMACH:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomachache
and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.
According to the studies done in India
it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon
powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
9. HEART DISEASES:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on
bread or chappati instead of jelly and jam and eat it
regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in
the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.
Also those who have already had an attack, if they do
process daily, are kept miles away from the next attack.
Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath
and strengthens the heartbeat. In America
various nursing homes have treated patients successfully
and have found that due to the increasing age the
arteries and veins, which lose their flexibility and get
clogged, are revitalized.
10. IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens
the immune system and protects the body from bacteria
and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has
various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use
of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight
bacteria and viral diseases.
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of
honey taken before food, relieves acidity and digests
the heaviest of meals.
A scientist in Spain
has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient,
which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken
regularly arrests the ravages of old age. Take 4 spoons
of honey, 1spoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water
and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a
day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old
age. Life span also increases and even if a person is
100 years old, starts performing the chores of a 20 year
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of
cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples

honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water. If
taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most
obese person. Also drinking of this mixture regularly
does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even
though the person may eat a high calorie diet.
Recent research in Japan
has reveled that advanced cancer of the stomach and
bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering
from these kinds of cancer should daily take one
tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder
for one month 3 times a day.
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of
honey is more helpful than detrimental to the body
strength. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon
power in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr.
Milton who has done research says that half tablespoon
honey taken in one glass of water and sprinkled with
cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the
afternoon at about
when the vitality of the body starts decreasing,
increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Hey, what do we have here?
The world's first soft drink disguise as a
multi-purpose cleaner? Or should it be a multi-purpose
cleaner disguise as a soft drink!!!
Besides that, If you pour Coke (yes, the soda) on a
slab of pork, wait a little while, you will SEE WORMS
crawl out of it.
AND WE DRINK THIS STUFF! Coke & Pepsi ALARMING
The average pH of soft drinks, e.g. Coke, Pepsi is pH
3.4. This acidity is strong enough to dissolve teeth and
bones! Our human body stops building bones at around the
age of 30. After that it'll be dissolving about 8-18% of
the bones each year through the urine, depending on the
acidity of the food intake (acidity does not depend on
the taste of the food, but on the ratio of potassium /
calcium / magnesium / etc. to phosphorus).
All the dissolved calcium compounds accumulate in the
arteries, veins, skin tissue, and organs. This affects
the functioning of the kidney (kidney stones). Soft
drinks do not have any nutritional value (in terms of
vitamins and minerals). They have higher sugar content,
higher acidity, and more additives such as preservatives
Some people like to take cold soft drinks after each
meal, guess what's the impact? Our body has an optimum
temperature of 37 degrees for the functioning of
digestive enzymes. The temperature of cold soft drinks
is much less than 37, sometimes quite close to 0. This
will lower the effectiveness of the enzymes and put
stress on the digestive system, digesting less food. In
fact the food gets fermented. The fermented food produce
bad smelling gases, decays and forms toxins, which are
absorbed in the intestines, get circulated in the blood
and is delivered to the whole body. This spread of
toxins can lead to the development of various diseases.
Think before you drink Coke or Pepsi or any another soft
Have you ever thought what you drink when you drink an
aerated drink? You gulp down carbon dioxide, something
that no sane person in the world would advise you to do.
Few months ago, there was a competition in Delhi
"Who can drink the most Coke?". The winner drank 8
bottles and died on the spot because too much carbon
dioxide in the blood and not enough oxygen. From then
on, the principal banned all soft drinks from the
Someone put a broken tooth in a bottle of Pepsi and in
10 days it is dissolved! Teeth and bones are the only
human organs that stay intact for years after death.
Imagine what the drink must be doing to your delicate
soft intestines and stomach lining! To all COKE / PEPSI
LOVERS, think again the next time before you say " CHUP
8) DANGER OF PIG MEAT/PORK (BABI)
FYI No more 'zhu zha tang' or yummy 'bak kut teh'...
The following is from Dr. Lee Say Fatt, I believe you
should read this.
Pork Awareness (read this carefully)!
IT'S WORTH SPENDING 3 MINUTES READING THIS
Try this and see whether the pork you bought has
worms. There goes with your "Bak Kut Teh" for those who
love it. Most men love to eat this so watch out before
it's too late. If you pour Coke (yes, the soda) on a
slab of pork, wait a little while, you will SEE WORMS
crawl out of it.
A message from the Health Corporation of Singapore
about the bad effects of pork consumption. Pig's bodies
contains MANY TOXINS, WORMS
and LATENT DISEASES.
Although some of these infestation are harboured in
other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are
far MORE PREDISPOSED to these illnesses than other
animals. This could be because PIGS like to SCAVENGE and
will eat ANY kind of food, INCLUDING dead insects,
worms, rotting carcasses, excreta including their own,
garbage, and other pigs.
INFLUENZA (flu) is one of the MOST common illnesses
which pigs share with humans. This illness is haboured
in the LUNGS of pigs during the summer months and tends
to affect pigs and human in the cooler months. Sausage
contains bits of pigs' lungs, so those who EAT pork
sausage tend to SUFFER MORE during EPIDEMICS of
Pig meat contains EXCESSIVE quantities of HISTAMINE
and IMIDAZOLE compounds, which can lead to ITCHING and
INFLAMMATION; GROWTH HORMONE which PROMOTES INFLAMMATION
and growth; sulphur containing mesenchymal mucus which
leads to SWELLING and deposits of MUCUS in tendons and
cartilage, resulting in ATHRITIS, RHEUMATISM, etc.
helps cause FIRM human tendons and ligaments to be
replaced by the pig's soft mesenchymal tissues, and
degeneration of human cartilage. Eating pork can also
lead to GALLSTONES and OBESITY, probably due to its HIGH
CHOLESTEROL and SATURATED FAT content.
The Pig is the MAIN CARRIER of the TAENIE SOLIUM WORM,
which is found in it flesh.
These tapeworms are found in human intestines with
greater frequency in nations where pigs are eaten. This
type of tapeworm can pass through the intestines and
affect many other organs, and is incurable once it
reaches beyond a certain stage. One in six people in the
has RICHINOSIS from eating trichina worms, which are
found in pork. Many people have NO SYMPTOMS after having
pork. When they do have any sickness in long term, they
resemble symptoms of many other illnesses. These worms
are NOT noticed during meat inspections.
