God's Pharmacy

Info yang diterima melalui email ini sangat berguna. Untuk dikongsi bersama.

Allah Maha Besar.


MUSHROOM – EAR
Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear.
And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could actually improve your hearing.
That’s because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.
This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.


BANANA (SMILE) – DEPRESSION
Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana.
The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan.
Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin.
This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production.
Higher levels are associated with better moods.


BROCCOLI – CANCER
Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of cancer cells.
Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing the disease.
Last year, a team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent.
In Britain , prostate cancer kills one man every hour.


GINGER – STOMACH
Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach.
So it’s interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion.
The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness.
But the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumors.


CHEESE – BONES
A nice ‘holey’ cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it even resembles their internal structure.
And like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to ‘power’ muscles.
Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones.
A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg – equal to an extra two slices of cheddar - boosted their bone density by six per cent.


BEANSPROUTS – SPERM
The stir-fry favourite bears an uncanny resemblance to the images we see of ‘swimming’ sperm trying to fertilize an egg. And research from the US suggests they could play an important part in boosting male fertility.
A study at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio showed that to make healthy sperm in large quantities, the body needs a good supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against damage by harmful molecules called free radicals.
Just half a cup of bean sprouts provides 16 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for a man.
It’s not just dad but baby too who could benefit.
Bean sprouts are packed with foliate, a vitamin that prevents neural tube defects, where the baby is born with a damaged brain or spine.


GRAPES – LUNGS
OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli.
These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.
One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy.
A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema.
Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.


TOMATO – HEART
A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart..
Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers.
The Women’s Health Study — an American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women — found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart disease than women who had very little lycopene.
Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol.
One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was “convincing evidence’ that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.


WALNUT – BRAIN
THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain - and provide a clue to the benefits.
Walnuts are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
They may also help head off dementia. An American study found that walnut extract broke down the protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats.

Sudah-sudahlah tu!




Jangan cakap pasal politiklah.
Lihat dari sudut peranan dan tanggungjawab kerajaan negeri dan kerajaan pusat yang mempunyai kuasa untuk menjadikannya kenyataan.

Dah tiba masanya, kedai 24 jam, 7 Eleven Malaysia tidak menjual arak / minuman keras dalam premis mereka. Setakat yang saya pernah lihat, semua 7 Eleven pekerjanya adalah orang Melayu Islam.

Orang Islam bukan setakat tidak boleh minum arak / minuman keras, malahan menjualnya pun sudah menjadi subhah.

Kalau boleh wujudkan kedai-kedai judi berlesen (sport toto, 4D, dsbnya. yang bersepah di seluruh negara, maka buatlah kedai arak berlesen. Hanya kat situ je boleh jual arak. Di kedai-kedai runcit, kedai serbaneka 24 jam dan yang sewaktu dengannya dilarang. Sepatutnya boleh buatlah, sebab Malaysia ni kan sebuah negara Islam. Apa guna sebut nama negara Islam kalau Islam jadi perkara kedua atau berikutnya... Jadi kalau masing-masing masih berdolak-dalik, masih lihat dari sudut politiklah namanya tu. Politik nombor satu. Agama muncul kemudiannya. Jadi jangan cakaplah pasal memperjuangkan Islam... korang semua sama sajalah.

Geragau - enak tapi bersihkah?

Email daripada seorang sahabat. Menurutnya gambar diambil ketika lawatan ke sebuah daerah di Larut Matang dan Krian, Perak.

Mungkin kita perlu fikirkan lebih serius dari sudut kebersihan dan kesihatan disamping memikirkan enaknya memakan geragau yang menjadi ramuan penyedap dalam masakan nasi goreng, resepi kuah mee, sambal dan lain-lain lagi.

Geragau yang dijemur hanya di atas kanvas nipis, di atas tanah yang mudah dicemari kotoran bila ditiup angin, pekerja yang memijak geragau dengan kasut yang sama digunakan berjalan di atas tanah dan kawasan sekitar, anjing yang berkeliaran memijak geragau dijemur dan ....... siap 'melepaskan hajat' di kawasan berhampiran. Tidak mustahil mungkin pernah 'melepas' kat atas geragau tuh...

Tidak hairanlah dengan pelbagai penyakit yang muncul sekarang ni. Kita cakap je kebersihan adalah sebahagian daripada iman... Ramai kita tak lagi fikirkan pasal kebersihan lagi bila dah berselera nak makan.

I Wanna Be Somebody

Sumber: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nW3D5sXZgE



Ku bertanya pada diri
Apa nak jadi bila besar nanti
Oh jawabnya I wanna be somebody

Bila ku sedar kemampuan
Tak sebijak persis insan lain
Membuat citaku tak kesampaian

Mujurlah sempat ku kikis sikap itu
Masa depanku aku yang menentukannya
Kejayaan bukan percuma
Malas usaha kelompang jiwa

Telah ku bukti pada semua
Bersungguh pasti kan berjaya
Ku kini mampu melakukannya

Jangan jemu pada ilmu
Dengannya kita akan dimulia
Jadilah orang yang berguna

Tuhan tak akan mengubah nasib kita
Selagi tak usaha kepada yang lebih baik
Jika tak tahu bertanya orang bijaksana
Setelah berjaya..janganlah alpa

Saat ini ku bertanya
Apakah kegagalan itu hina
Oh kerananya I gonnna be somebody
