Tea Wards Off Cell Mutation

Drinking two or more cups of tea per day may dramatically cut the risk of ovarian cancer, according to a recent Swedish study of more than 61, 000 women.

The findings by researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm were based on a look at the habits and long-term health of the women, the report published in the Archives of Internal Medicine said.

Of the women recruited for the study that began in 1987, two-thirds reported drinking tea. When it concluded at the end of last year, 301 participants had developed ovarian cancer, a particularly deadly form of disease.

“We observed a 46% lower risk of ovarian cancer in women who drank two or more cups of tea per day compared with non-drinkers,” study authors Susanna Larsson and Alicja Wolk wrote.

“Each additional cup of tea per day was associated with an 18% lower risk of ovarian cancer.”

Black and green teas are believed to contain antioxidants that help ward off the cell mutation that leads to cancer.

The researchers cautioned that additional studies were needed to confirm their findings.

Tomato Juice Can Prevent Smoke-induced Lung Disease

Tomato Juice may help prevent emphysema, a dangerous lung disease connected to smoking, scientists say.

In a trial on mice exposed to cigarette smoke, Japanese scientists found that smoke-induced emphysema was “completely prevented” by feeding the animals tomato juice, according to a study published in the American Journal of Physiology – Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology.

“The researchers attribute the protective effect to lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, the study said. Emphysema prevents the lungs from working properly, resulting in breathlessness and wheezing.

Important Knowledge On Handling Packaged Foods

A stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui, Hawaii. When he got back, he was complaining that the storeroom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse or rat droppings in some areas. A couple of days later, he started to feel like he was coming down with stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began to vomit.

He went to bed and never really got up again. Within two days he was severely ill and weak. His blood sugar count was down to 66, and his face and eyeballs were yellow. He was rushed to the emergency at Pali-Momi, where he was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure.

No one would have made the connection between his job and his fatality, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rat or mouse droppings at any time. They said there is a virus (much likes the Hanta virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings.

Once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroughly.

An autopsy was performed on the clerk to verify the doctor's suspicions. This is why it is extremely important to always carefully rinse off the tops of canned sodas or foods, and to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on. Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, and stores themselves often have rodents.

Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans. The ugly truth is, even the most modern, upper-class, super store has rats and mice. And their warehouse most assuredly does!

Whenever you buy any canned soft drink, please make sure that you wash the top with running water and soap or, if that is not available, drink with a straw.

The investigation of soda cans by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta discovered that the tops of soda cans can be encrusted with dried rat's urine, which is so toxic it can be lethal. Canned drinks and other foodstuffs are stored in warehouses and containers that are usually infested with rodents, and then they get transported to retail outlets without being properly cleaned.

H5N1 News 03/06- Turkey Battles To Halt Bird Flu Outbreak

Turkey reported another human case of bird flu recently as authorities sealed off areas around major cities Ankara and Istanbul while they culled poultry to halt the advance of H5N1 virus.

Three children have already passed away in eastern Turkey- the first reported human bird flu case from the bird virus flu outside China and Southeast Asia. Dozens of worried Turks have rushed to hospitals for tests for the virus across the country of 72 million.

Turkey has reported a dozen more people infected with the virus, with confirmed cases as far west as the central region around the capital Ankara sparking fears the disease could spread to people in mainland Europe.

Four people were taken to hospital with suspected bird flu in the town of Aydin near the Agean coast- one of Turkey’s most important tourism centres- adding to concerns the outbreak will harm country’s important tourist trade.

Health experts say the outbreak in Turkey is worst since one in Hongkong in 1997 when 18 people were infected and six passed away before it was brought under control. Bird flu has killed at least 76 people since it reemerged in late 2003.

The latest victim confirmed with bird flu was from the central province of Sivas.

Turkey has stepped up an information campaign on how to deal with birds and called on locals to comply with culling regulations, particularly in the poor mainly- Kurdish southeast. Sermons at mosques are also urging precaution.

The authorities have also sent teams of veterinarians in protective white body suits to a number of regions to cull poultry, seen as the best method of checking the disease.

The mayor of eastern village of Dogubayazit, home to the three children who passed away said many people were hiding their poultry because they did not believe government promises that they would be fully compensated.

Meanwhile, China confirmed its eighth human bird flu case on Monday, the latest victim a six-year-old boy from the central Hunan province who is being treated in hospital.

Indonesia said local tests showed a 39-year-old man had died from the virus earlier this month after contract with dead chickens. If confirmed, it would be the 12th victim in the country.

Water Therapy

Drink six (6) glasses of water (1.5 litre) everyday and avoid medicine, tablets, injections, diagnosis, doctor fees, etc.
How to do this water therapy?

1 ) Early morning, after you get up from bed, (without even brushing your teeth) drink 1.50 litres of water i.e., 5 to 6 glasses. Let us all know that ancient Indians termed this therapy as "Usha Paana Chikitsa". You may wash your face thereafter.

2) Here it is very essential to note that nothing else, neither drinks nor solid food of any sort should be taken within 1 hour before and after drinking these 1.50 litres of water.

3) It is also to be strictly observed that no alcoholic drinks should be taken the previous night.

4) If required, boiled and filtered water may be used for this purpose. Is it possible to drink 1.50 litres of water at one time? To begin with, one may find it difficult to drink 1.50 litres of water at one time, but one will get used to it gradually. Initially, while practicing you may drink four glasses first and the balance two glasses after a gap of two minutes. Initially you may find the necessity to urinate 2 to 3 times within an hour, but it will become normal after quite some time.

By research and experience, the following diseases are observed to be cured with this therapy within the indicated days as below:

Constipation 1 day
Acidity 2 days
BP & Hypertension 4 weeks
Pulminory TB 3 months
Diabetes 7 days
Cancer 4 weeks
It is advised that persons suffering from Artheritis or Rheumatism should practice this therapy thrice a day, i.e., morning, midday and night, I hour before meals for one week; and twice a day subsequently until the disease disappears.

How does pure water act?

Consuming ordinary drinking water by the right method purifies human body. It renders the colon more effective by forming new fresh blood, known in medical terms as Haematopaises. That the mucousal folds of the colon and intestines are activated by this method, is an undisputed fact, just as the theory that new fresh blood is produced by the mucousal fold.

If the colon is cleansed then the nutrients of the food taken several times a day will be absorbed and by the action of the mucousal folds they are turned into fresh blood. The blood is all important in curing ailments and restoring health and for this water should be consumed in a regular pattern. We make an earnest request that the above method should be read and practiced carefully. Please spread this message to your friends, relatives and neighbors. It is a great service to the cause of humanity.
