Eat healthy food
Some timely HEALTH TIPS
Iquote below some information I have collated from medical journals
and books, for the benefit of the readers:
a) Smoking and drinking scenes: People are aware that the government
had ordered to blackout all drinking and smoking scenes in cinema/TV
etc. Due to criticism, this regulation has been changed now. That is,
only a warning notice appears at the commencement of the show stating
that drinking and smoking are harmful and parents are requested to
advise their children accordingly.
A recent survey in the US revealed that complete blackout had
produced better results in reducing smoking and drinking habits among
youngsters. It is better to reintroduce this blackout regulation now.
b) Kidney problems: In India it has been observed that nearly 60
percent of children under two years of age were having kidney problems.
This had been mainly due to marriage amongst blood relations,
hereditary, prostate gland problems and over consumption of salt and
It is true that imported food items have high sugar and salt due to
the usage of preservatives. Parents please note this and give your
children fresh, local food instead of imported, packeted products.
c) Coffee and eggs: There is a common belief that coffee and eggs are
harmful. A recent research reveals that consumption of limited amount of
coffee after 50 years of age helps to maintain muscle strength which
slackens due to old age. Even sportsmen who participated in the London
Olympics were taking coffee on regular basis.
One egg per day is said to reduce the possibility of breast cancer by
24 percent. It should be noted that men could also have breast cancer.
'One egg a day keeps breast cancer away'...... new slogan!
d) Vitamin tablets: It is not advisable to take vitamin tablets on
your own, especially those chosen on the basis of advertisements. It is
better to have the vitamins from the intake of fresh food such as
fruits, vegetables, milk etc. However, if you need additional
supplements, this should be done with medical advice. Over consumption
of vitamin tablets could result in harmful side effects.
e) Slimming: It is true that weight reduction and slimming are
healthy, but it must be done according to one's age and health factors.
Never use tablets to loose weight, as side effects are harmful. Even
your slimming programme should be monitored with regular medical
check-up. Some fashion models who had adopted vigorous sliming
programmes have dropped dead on the catwalk. Readers Watchout!
f) Air conditioners: It has been proven that continuously occupying
air-conditioned rooms is harmful. Even paralysis can be caused. Reports
reveal that children face more danger than adults. It is better switch
off the air-conditioner or leave the room at regular intervals for
I appeal to medical experts to express an opinion for the benefit of
the public at large.
