closer to your ears until the recipient answers because directly after
dialing, the mobile phone would use it's maximum signaling power, which is:

2watts = 33dbi. (4 - 6 dbi is Harmless )

Please use left ear while using mobile, because if you use the right one it will affect brain directly. This is a true fact from Apollo medical team. Please be careful and tell others whom you really care about


Importance of breakfast

"Importance of having Breakfast"

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice
on not to skip breakfast!

Healthy living
For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You've
heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal
of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst
practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast.


Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks
between 6:00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being
between 8: 00a.m. and 10:00a.m.What mechanism within the body could account
for this significant jump in sudden death in the early
morning hours?

We may have an Answer.

Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if
we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to
cholesterol or laque buildup in the artery lining. It is in the morning
hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these
internal blood clots at the greatest frequency.

However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet
activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes.
Studies performed at Memorial University in St.Johns, Newfoundland
found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in
modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed
either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a
source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk. So if you skip
breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately
in light of this research. Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as
oatmeal or Bran Flakes, along with six ounces of grape juice
or orange juice, and perhaps a piece of fruit. This simple plan will keep
your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from
forming, and perhaps head off a potential Heart Attack or stroke. So
never ever skip breakfast

Tips for contact lenses wearer

Hello fellas, here's a good information for those friends who wear contact lenses, remove them when you have to attend a BBQ party or whatsoever that got to do with flames... I heard a horrible true story about contact lenses.... It happened to a 21 year old guy, he wore a pair of contact lenses during a barbecue party. While, he was barbecuing, he stared at the fire charcoals. After a few seconds, he started to scream for help and moved rapidly, jumping up and down. No one in the party knew
why... When he arrived at the Hospital, the doctor said he'll be blind
permanently courtesy of the contact lenses that he had worn. Contact lenses
are made by plastics, and the heat from the charcoal melted his contact
lenses. So, tell all your friends.....




1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them!"

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's
workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is
with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,
improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9 Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county;

to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away.

Ten Reason to throw out your MICROWAVE OVEN

Microwave Oven - Hazard

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:
1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term - permanent - brain damage by "shorting out" electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the
unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down
and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are
residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved
food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no
benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into
cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal
cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate
of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory,
concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

Have you tossed out your microwave oven yet? After you
throw out your microwave, you can use a toaster oven as a replacement.
It works well for most and is nearly as quick. The use of artificial
microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a.
"brainwashing", has also been proven. We're attempting to obtain copies of the
1970's Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov
specifying their clinical experiments in this area.



Be careful with this fruit - Yang Mei

Here's a rough translation of the article attached:

A lady in Kunming China bought 2 kilo of yang-mei
(can be bought in Singapore when in season) from a
fruit vendor who informed her they are freshly

After returning home, she put a portion of the fruit
in a bowl of salt water and let it soaked while she
watched TV. Some time later, she checked the fruit
and was suprised to see something wriggling in the
bowl of water.

She felt suspicious and decide to experiment by
soaking the brightly red unsoaked ones with various
level of salted water.

In the least salted water, after soaking for 3 mins
she discovered 7 white worms desperately wiggled its
way to the rim of the bowl to avoid the salt water.

Then she soaked the same fruit in a bowl of saltier
water, and after 3 mins she discovered 5 more worms
emerging from the fruit.

Finally she tried the saltiest water and no more
worm emerged. And she also noticed the fruit has
turned from bright red to patches of white.

Now she realised that whenever she ate this type of
fruit she'll always ended up with tummy upset.

Thus as a precaution, always rinse in salted water
thrice before consuming this kind of fruit (probably
apply to any skinless fruits).

Bon Appetite!

The Silent Killer

For those who take

Ricola & Fisherman , please note that they both contain Aspartame - the silent killer.

This website shows the adverse effects of ASPARTAME:

Fisherman Sweets
FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO EAT FISHERMAN SWEETS BE CAREFUL: Sugar free products contain ASPARTAME .. So don't consume Sugar free product esp. 'fisherman sweets' ASPARTAME - THE SILENT KILLER (by Ron Harder)
To those who prefer to consume artificial flavouring:
There is an epidemic across North America today of Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus. Most people do not understand why this epidemic is happening, and they do not know why these diseases are so rampant. I would like to share with you the main reason we are having this very serious problem. Many people today use artificial sweeteners in their tea or coffee.
They do this because the ads they see on TV tell them that sugar is bad for their health. This is absolutely true. Sugar is toxic to us , but what most people use as a replacement for sugar is much more deadly. I am talking about ASPARTAME. It is the cause of the epidemic that was mentioned above. ASPARTAME is an extremely toxic chemical that is produced by a chemical company called Monsanto.
ASPARTAME is being marketed around the world as a sugar substitute and is found in all diet soft drinks, such as

Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi . It is also found in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful; and it is used in many other products as a sugar replacement.

ASPARTAME is marketed as a diet product, but it is not a diet product at all. In fact, it will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave carbohydrates. Causing you to gain weight is only a very small part of what ASPARTAME does. It is a toxic chemical that changes the brain's chemistry It can and does cause severe seizures.

This chemical changes the dopamine level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone suffering from Parkinson's disease.
ASPARTAME is extremely poisonous, and here is why one of the toxic ingredients of it is wood alcohol. When the temperature of

ASPARTAME exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in it is converted to Formaldehyde, and then to formic acid, which in turn causes folic acidosis.

FORMALDEHYDE is grouped in the same class of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic which are very deadly toxins. The only difference is, Formaldehyde kills quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process of killing people, it causes all kinds of neurological problems. There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning leading to coma and death.
The majority of these symptoms are neurological, because the ASPARTAME attacks and destroys the nervous system. One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost as rampant as Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers
