                           Useful Tips for how to stay young.

Research reveals that people who
generally live longer do so partly because of good habits.  Here, Dr
Vernon Coleman and others provide some of the following good habits for
longevity.
  

  1)                  Laugh & fun, don't be gloomy
  2)                  Let bygones be bygones.  Dwelling on the past inflicts unnecessary stress.
  3)                  Early to bed, early to rise, is healthy & wise
  4)                  Stay lean, being just 30% overweight is bad.
  5)                  Keep learning, reading & socializing * an alert & active mind keeps brain cells healthy.
  6)                  Keep working, doing something you like.  Don't retire, it slows down your body.
  7)                  Be the boss of your own life.  Letting others push you around produces stress.
  8)                  Too many pills ruin your body, take just what you need.
  9)                  Constantly alternating between weight gain & loss is bad
  10)               Exercise, quit smoking and eat less fatty foods
  11)               Do not worry about health & death, just get on with your life and enjoy it.

 A Few Health Tips:

 Super Fruits  Kiwi : Tiny but mighty
 This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, Vitamin E & fiber. 
 It's Vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.
 
  Apple : An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
  Although an apple has a low Vitamin C content, it has antioxidants &  flavonoids which enhances the activity of Vitamin C thereby  helping to  lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attach & stroke.
 
  Strawberry : Protective Fruit
  Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major  fruits & protect the body from cancer causing, blood vessels clogging free  radicals.
 
  Orange : Sweetest medicine
  Taking 2 to 4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower
cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessen the risk of colon
cancer.
 
  Watermelon : Coolest Thirst Quencher
  Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of
glutathione which helps boost our immune system.  They are also a key source
of lycopene * the cancer fighting oxidant.  Other nutrients found in
watermelon are Vitamin C & Potassium.
  
  Guava & Papaya : Top awards for Vitamin C
  They are the clear winners for their high Vitamin C content.  Guava
is also rich in fiber which helps prevent constipation.  Papaya is rich
in carotene, this is good for your eyes.
  
  

 Benefits of Vegetables And Fruits. 
  BROCCOLI
  How it combats cancer: Research has revealed that a chemical
component called indole-3-carbinol can combat breast cancer by converting a
cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective form. The phytochemical
sulforaphane raises the levels of certain cancer-fighting enzymes that
defend the body from cigarette smoke, fumes, pesticides & other known
carcinogens.
  
  Diet tips: Broccoli leaves actually contain more beta-carotene (i.e.
pre-Vitamin A) than the florets - use leaves in purees, soups,
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.
  
  PAPAYA
  How it combats cancer: Its plentiful store of vitamin C works as an
antioxidant and may also reduce absorption of cancer-causing
nitrosamines from the soil or processed foods.  Papaya contains folacin  (also
known as folic acid), which has been shown to minimize cervical ysplasia
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 won't ripen
properly.  You can serve papaya in fruit salad, add it to a
garlic-and-spinach pasta mixture, or just eat it on its own.  
 

  GARLIC
  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
  
  KALE
  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 estrogen-sensitive tissues.
In addition, isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found in kale, are thought  to suppress tumor growth and block cancer-causing substances from  reaching their targets.
  
  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.
  
  SWEET POTATO
  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 nuclear  membrane.
  
  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 apple juice.
Or whip the cooked tubers with orange zest or orange juice and season  with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  
  GRAPEFRUIT
  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; vanilla extract, fresh mint, and almonds also  accent the fruit's flavor. Grapefruit juice will give you the  antioxidants and phytochemicals that fight cancer, but it's missing the fiber
that fresh,whole grapefruit offers.


  AVOCADO
  How it combats cancer: Avocados are rich in glutathione, a powerful  antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking
intestinal absorption of certain fats. Ounce for ounce, avocados also supply 60  percent more potassium than bananas and are a strong source of  beta-carotene.
  
  Diet tips: Store avocados at room temperature until they soften. If  you don't eat the fruit immediately after cutting, sprinkle on some
lemon or lime juice to keep it from darkening. Add chunks or slices to  salads and sandwiches or spread mashed avocado on bread.
  
  SEAWEED
  How they combat cancer: Seaweed and other sea 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 iodine.
  
  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.

  
  TOFU
  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 to flourish.
  
  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.

  CAUSES OF CANCER   
  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 vehicles.
  
  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, sausages, etc.)
  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.

  3.2 Not Recommended for Health
  i           Vegetable Fat - Palm oil is worst than coconut oil. It is high in cholesterol and highly unsaturated.
  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 tomato sauce.
  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 breath deeply.
  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 inflammation.
  
  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
Canada 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:
  
  1.  ARTHRITIS:
    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 University, 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.

2.  HAIR LOSS:
    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.
      3.
    BLADDER INFECTIONS:
    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.
     
  4.   TOOTHACHE:

  5.   CHOLESTEROL:
    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.
    
6.    COLDS:
    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.
     
6.    INFERTILITY:
    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, Japan 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, America 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.

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 and Canada, 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.

everything.
  
  1) To clean a toilet:-
           Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl.
           Let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean.
           The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.
           No scrubbing, no sweat - guaranteed.
  
  2) To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
           Rub the bumper with a crumpled-up piece of aluminum foils dipped in Coca-Cola.
           Much economical than the stuff from Smart Shop.
  
  3) To clean corrosion from car battery terminals;
           Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
  
  4) To loosen a rusted bolt;
           Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
  
  5) To remove grease from clothes;
           Empty a can of Coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.

  6) The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
  
  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 FACTS!!!
  
  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 and colorings.
  
  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 drink.
  
  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 University "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 university canteen.
  
  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 INFLUENZA.
  
  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.
Sulphur 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
US and Canada 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.
  
  9) URGENT MEDICAL WARNING Alert!! - Medicine Removal     By Terisa Truesdell
  
  Hello All, Please read and copy this notice to the people you love. This is not a matter to be taken lightly. This medical alert was broadcast on the news. Stop taking anything containing the ingredient Phenylpropanolamine. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting us of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA has recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicines. Having taken a few of this medicine at one time or another, I called CVS to see if there was any truth to this email. They said that it was so, and if! I have any of these products at home, I should stop using them. CVS has removed all products containing this chemical from their shelves.
