    This thread is worth reading especially the ” Go Green for Life” and the “Population Control” I read on a paper that U.S.A. are donating ton of condom in the Philippines, but I dont know why people could’nt find them available. Maybe the “Fat Cats” are stuffing it in their pockets, why? reselling or using along with the viagra?
    The Go Green is very informative about using plastic container and the commercial water bottle. If heated in the microwave it willrelease phthalates that can cause cancer, birth defects, lung, liver disease.

    Dr. Mao’s Secrets of Longevity
    Go Green for a Long Life

    There are places in the world where a concentrated number of people routinely live to 100
    From the lush valleys of Ecuador to the peaceful island of Okinawa to the pristine hills of the Himalayas, these centenarian clusters all have something in common: an environment conducive to a healthy, long life-clean air, pure water, and nature unspoiled by the modern world.
    In our Western world, we have to contend with the toxic by-products of our technological advances. Not only have we made our environment cancerous for ourselves, but we have also made it harder for other organisms in nature to thrive. By living in harmony with nature, we bring health to ourselves and to the planet. Make Our World Less PlasticPlastic, lightweight, durable, and versatile is everywhere in our modern world – bad news for the environment and our health. Many plastics release vinyl chloride and other harmful gases or contain phthalates that can lead to cancer, birth defects, and lung and liver disease.
    Some plastics are right out in the open, like the ones found in our TVs, computers, telephones, coffeemakers, water bottles, and food containers. But some plastics show up in places where you might least suspect them, in carpeting, chewing gum, cosmetics, mattresses, sanitary napkins, polyester clothing, tissues, toilet paper, and upholstery.
    Minimize plastic usage to cut your health risks. Use glass water bottles, wooden toys, personal care products and cosmetics made with natural ingredients, and natural fiber clothing, bedding, and mattresses.Unbleached Paper for the PlanetPaper products do not come naturally white. All white paper is bleached with chemicals that leave behind harmful residues of dioxin, which is a known carcinogen.
    These residues are found in coffee filters, diapers, lunch bags, napkins, paper towels, tissues, and toilet paper. When dioxin enters the landfill as waste, it leaches into the soil, contaminating groundwater. Using unbleached paper products is good for both you and the earth.Green your Clean RoutineSeeking longevity means protecting ourselves from products that are dangerous to our health. Household cleansers containing bleach or chemicals are harmful to inhale. Instead of these, choose natural cleaning products that have recently come onto the market, which are safe and will not pollute the environment. You can use natural brands sold in your local health food stores.Look no further than your own kitchen for these simple, homemade cleaners:• Stovetop: sprinkle baking soda on, let it sit five minutes, then scour with steel wool or scrubber. For stubborn spots, mix dishwashing liquid, borax, and warm water, spray the mixture on, and let it sit for 20 minutes before scouring.• Diluted vinegar is an effective cleanser in the kitchen and bathroom, and will work for tiles, windows, toilet bowls, mirrors, and even carpets. The acetate acid in vinegar also helps inhibit bacteria and mildew.
    Try this formula: mix one cup of distilled white vinegar with one cup of water and use it just like you would use any other cleaning product. For those jobs requiring elbow grease, avoid chlorinated powder and scour with baking soda instead.Eat with Environmental EdgeCommercially grown produce is filled with pesticides, herbicides and toxic chemical residues. Conventional meat, poultry, and dairy products contain high amounts of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotic drugs that are harmful to your health.
    These toxins show up in a variety of places, including the water supply, breast milk, and urine. They cause degenerative changes, hormonal problems, immune system disorders, and cancer in both people and animals.
    For your own wellbeing and the health of the planet, search out organic foods; whenever possible, buy only organic and free-range poultry and meat.I hope you find ways to be in harmony with nature! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me. May you stay healthy, live long, and live happy!-Dr. Mao

    Bedtime Snacks that Help You Sleep

    One of the best natural sedatives is tryptophan, an amino acid component of many plant and animal proteins.
    Tryptophan is one of the ingredients necessary for the body to make serotonin, the neurotransmitter best known for creating feelings of calm, and for making you sleepy.
    However, the trick is to combine foods that have some tryptophan with ample carbohydrate. That’s because in order for insomnia-busting tryptophan to work, it has to make its way to the brain.
    Unfortunately, all amino acids compete for transport to the brain. When you add carbs, they cause the release of insulin, which takes the competing amino acids and incorporates them into muscle…but leaves tryptophan alone, so it can make its way to the brain, be converted to serotonin, and cause sleepiness.
    Serotonin-producing bedtime snacks should be no more than 200 calories and should be eaten at least 30 minutes prior to bed.
    Here are a few great ideas:
    Bedtime Snacks for Adults
    –6-8 oz container of non-fat, flavored yogurt topped with 2 tablespoons low-fat granola cereal–Sliced apple with 1-2 teaspoons natural peanut butter–3 cups low-fat popcorn – sprinkled with optional 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
    Bedtime Snacks for Teens–One cup healthy cereal with skim milk–Low-fat granola bar –Scoop of vanilla or strawberry low-fat ice cream
    Bedtime Snacks for Children
    –1/2 cup low-fat vanilla pudding–1/2 banana with 1-2 teaspoons peanut butter–One cup skim milk with a bunch of grapes (or other fruit)

    Unless Filipinos will not be open-minded and take the Church as ashield on this issue, Philippines will not succeed in population control. Justcan’t understand why the use of condom is not allowed by the Church to be used by legal couples while this method (condom)is used on illicit and immoral way which the Church cannot control anyway.

    UN reminds RP of commitments to ’94 population conference

    By Veronica UyINQUIRER.netLast updated 07:41pm (Mla time) 03/06/2007

    MANILA, Philippines – The Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary General on Monday reminded the Philippines of its commitments to the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development to provide all family planning information and services to its people.In an interview with, Dr. Nafis Sadik said signatories to the ICPD have the responsibility to provide complete and accurate information and services on both natural and artificial family planning methods.
    Despite these commitments, the Philippines has bent to the wishes of the Catholic Church and pushes only natural family planning methods.“The emphasis is on full information and access to services,” Sadik said. “People must be given all the information, the pros and cons of the each type of contraceptive. They cannot be denied choices.”Sadik said given these information, couples then are left to decide for themselves which type of family planning method to use.The secretary general of the 1994 ICPD, who is also Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Asia, is also worried about the phase-down of condom donations, principally from the United States Agency for International Development. “This is very troubling,” she said, adding that this will create a situation where only the rich, and not the poor who need them most, will have access to contraceptives. “The UN has no resources to take over…We are worried about the poor people who depend on these donations. We are worried that this would result in more unwanted pregnancies, abortions, and health risks to women,” she said.Asked about the popular belief in the Philippines that teaching teenagers about reproductive health would lead to promiscuity, Sadik said this is a “myth” not just in the Philippines but even in parts of the developed world like the United States and United Kingdom.She said surveys throughout the world indicate that giving young people the correct information actually brings down the incidence of teenage pregnancy. “All young people get information, but mostly incomplete information or misinformation,” she added.Sadik, who was executive director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) from 1987 through 2000 said that as puberty comes earlier, proper education is key.
