Pembakaran Sampah Terbuka

Pembakaran Sampah Terbuka
Pembakaran sampah terbuka berlaku di mana-mana. Ia disebabkan kurangnya kesedaran dan pengetahuan di kalangan orang ramai mengenai kesan buruk pembakaran sampah secara terbuka, berleluasa serta tidak dapat dikawal.
Apabila sesuatu kawasan pembinaan rumah hendak dibuka, pokok akan ditebang dan dibakar. Pembakaran ini menghasilkan gas Karbon Dioksida dan Karbon Monoksida. Jika sebatian organik itu mengandungi unsur sulphur (sulfur), gas beracun sulphur akan terhasil. Jika sampah mengandungi unsur Nitrogen, gas Nitrous Oxide dan Nitrous Dioxide boleh terbentuk.
Bagi setiap suhu yang berlainan, sebatian kimia yang terbentuk juga berlainan. Ini menerangkan mengapa walau dengan api pembakaran sekecil api puntung rokok sekalipun, akan boleh menghasilkan lebih dari 4200 jenis bahan kimia apabila ia terbakar. Bahan kimia yang terhasil adalah dipengaruhi oleh suhu pembakaran yang berlainan. Justeru, mesin insinerator moden menitik beratkan dari segi menghalang pengeluaran gas beracun terbentuk akibat api pembakaran. Sebagai contoh, antara cara pembakaran insinerator adalah dengan menaikkan suhu dengan secepat mungkin atau menaikkan suhu secara tiba-tiba bertujuan tidak memberi masa yang cukup bagi bahan kimia beracun terbentuk semasa pembakaran. Ini adalah berbeza dengan pembakaran terbuka, dimana bahan kimia beracun, seperti pembakaran puntungr okok, mempunyai masa yang mencukupi bagi pelbagai jenis bahan kimia berbahaya terbentuk. Antara bahan kimia ini adalah dioxin yang boleh menyebabkan barah. Ia berpunca dari bahan plastik yang terbakar lalu mengeluarkan gas dioxin.Dioxin disedut, dioxin larut dalam darah, seterusnya dioxin larut dalam sel lemak manusia juga larut dalam sel otak kerana sel otak mengandungi lipid. Semakin banyak sel lemak, semakin banyak kimia dioxin yang boleh disimpan dalam sel lemak. Ia kemudian akan dirembeskan secara perlahan-lahan ke dalam sistem darah serta boleh mengganggu perjalanan tindakbalas semulajadi kimia serta pembahagian sel-sel dalam tubuh manusia.  Dioxin bersifat beracun kepada buah pinggang dan hati serta dalam jangka panjang boleh menyebabkan barah. Justeru, pembakaran terbuka perlu dibendung dan dikawal. Fikiran orang ramai perlu dikayakan dengan pengetahuan kesan pencemaran melalui media televisyen, radio, internet dsbnya. Selain itu, barangan plastik seperti beg dan pembalut plastik tidak boleh dibuang begitu sahaja kerana ia tidak reput di dalam tanah. Bahan plastik berasal dari produk Petroleum dan ia mengandungi dioxin. Paling baik adalah dengan mengitar semula bekas plastik, kaca dsbnya.

Nota: Sekiranya ada salah dan silap, dipohon dapat diperbetulkan kesalahan ini. Setiapteguran dan penambahbaikan dari pembaca sekalian adalah sangat sangat dihargai dan diharapkan.


Why the Cover-Up?

As in the case of most cover-ups and public health scandals money and lots of it are usually the root of this evil. As we all know by now large companies have the money and the power to keep almost anything secret if they want to. All we have to do is take a look at the Tobacco companies worldwide, systematically and completely legally killing millions, with the help of the governments who receive large payoffs in the form of taxes. Sadly most of the time we can do little to change this complete lack of humanity, but this secret is out and I am proud to be one of the many passing it on.

In "Smokescreen: The Truth behind the Tobacco Industry Cover-Up" Philip J. Hilts tells us in the US, Congress has voted with tobacco interests year after year, including dollar figures on how much money key Congressmen take from them. The Food and Drug Administration is now planning to regulate cigarettes as a drug for the first time. This book focusing on the Brown and Williamson case of "The Insider" fame shows us just how the lives of millions are put at risk for the wealth of a few.

Here in Ireland, mastectomies are common practice at the first hint of a tumour in the breast. The amount of women being told they have to undergo this un-necessary surgery is a scandal in itself. Vitamin B17 is not even mentioned as a means of reducing the tumour even though leading scientists have proved that it works.

Instead people are given obscene quantities of drugs like 'Tamoxifen' and 'Famara' both known to cause bone cancer. It will always amaze me how doctor’s being some of the most intelligent people in the world will stubbornly stick to these mid-evil practices of torture under the heading of Technology instead of Properly researching the alternatives.

"It took me years to realize that the people in control of the cancer treatment world today did not want a simple, quick cure for cancer. It was not in their economic or career interest. They want complicated disease syndromes and all the paraphernalia of techniques, expert analysis, peer group conferences, papers, discussions, research grants and clinical trials for years before a new cancer therapy might be allowed. It is a horrendous crime which serves only those "inside" who are playing the great, lucrative "expert" game." - Barry Lynes, author of "The Cancer Cure That Worked" p. 126

Information and quotes from the book:

World Without Cancer G. Edward Griffin, 1997

Famous Cases

Steve McQueen

In 1980, movie actor Steve McQueen also made news when he went to Mexico for Laetrile and other unorthodox therapies. When he died following surgery four months later, the press had a heyday telling the American people that Laetrile didn't work. What they failed to report is that McQueen's cancer was, indeed, apparently cured by Laetrile and that only a non-cancerous tumour remained in his abdomen. (Most tumours are composed of a mixture of cancer and non-cancerous tissue.) McQueen was feeling great and decided to have the bulge removed for cosmetic reasons. It was a complication of that surgery, not cancer, which caused his death. Not a word of his prior recovery was to be found in the major press. Consequently, millions of Americans who followed the story came away with the conviction that Laetrile is just another hoax. That too, is merely an extension of the kind of biased media reporting that has become a permanent part of the coverage of Laetrile. It continues today.
Chad Green

It has been suggested that the mass media have decided to ignore Laetrile because, when it did receive national publicity it became popular. People decided to give it a try in spite of the negative press. If they had been told they were going to die anyway, why not? And the clinics in Mexico thrived. Another reason may be that although the controversy continues, there is nothing of substance that is really new. Each unfolding event is merely an extension of forces and arguments that have preceded. For example in 1977 the parents of Chad Green kidnapped their own son and took him to Mexico to avoid being forced by officials in Massachusetts into giving him chemotherapy for his leukaemia. They preferred nutritional therapy instead. This is part of the heavy price we pay for allowing government the power to decide what is best for us and our families.
Thomas Navarro

When special-interest groups become politically strong enough to write the laws, then it is those groups that tell us what to do - all in the name of protecting us of course. The Chad Green story made big headlines but unfortunately the same thing involving other children has happened numerous times since then with only minor news coverage.

For example in 1999 James and Donna Navarro were told that their four-year-old son Thomas had a malignant brain tumour. Surgery left the child speechless, blind and unable to walk. When the doctors told the Navarros that Thomas would also have to undergo radiation and chemotherapy, they researched the medical literature and learned that these treatments probably would further impair the boy's brain function and that long-term survival was unlikely anyway. So they decided to try an alternative therapy called antineoplastons offered at the Stanislaw R. Burzynsky Research Institute in Houston. At this point the FDA stepped in and prohibited Dr. Burzynsky from accepting the boy as a patient unless he first had undergone chemotherapy and radiation.

Mr. Navarro explains: "What they don't understand is that there won't be anything left of him to salvage if we make him take that awful treatment first." When he did not fall in line with the doctors' demands he began to receive harassing phone calls from hospital personnel. One oncologist threatened to file charges with the state. When Mr. Navarro still refused the doctor went to the protective-services agency and filed child-abuse charges against the parents.

One of the first practitioners to use Laetrile was Arthur T. Harris, M.D., who had trained in Scotland and reportedly studied embryology under John Beard. Harris, who had been doing family practice in Southern California renamed his office the Harris Cancer Clinic. Within a year he submitted a report to Coronet Magazine which claimed that he was "working on something out here that is going to be the answer to cancer if there will ever be one," but the magazine did not report what he was doing.

Olive oil will:
    • Promote a smooth, radiant complexion
    • Help maintain elasticity of skin
    • Heal dry, brittle nails and soften cuticles
    • Condition and add shine to hair
  1. Will olive oil help fighting cancer?
Previous studies (4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil Compounds Fight Breast Cancer) have already shown the olive oil benefits to fighting breast. Specific compounds found in olive oil (lignans and secoiridoids) seem to act against aggressive types of breast cancer by suppressing the Her2 gene. In the past natural compounds found in plants such as olive oil that have an anti-inflammatory effect by removing free radicals, have already repeatedly shown to help in cancer prevention but no study has addressed this topic in depth to the extent of being able to use such compounds to create new more natural drugs to fight cancer.
  1. 7 Very Healthy Reasons to Turn to Olive Oil

Benefits of Olive Oil

byEditor on October 4, 2009
Olive oil is commonly used in the Mediterranean diet (one of the most recommended for a healthy lifestyle) and you may have heard of the olive oil brings many benefits. You may have also heard that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is even better for your health. However, I can tell you that even in those household where this great natural resource is regularly used, people may not know what the main benefits of olive oil are.
Olive oil benefits - Drinking fresh olive oil

1) Olive oil reduces the of risk of cardiovascular diseases

In those Mediterranean countries where olive oil is consumed a lot, (such as Greece, Italy, and Spain), there is a low incidence of cardiovascular disease. The mild vegetable mucilage in olive oil helps protect your body’s digestive tract.

2)Olive oil has shown beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis

Using olive oil as main dressing oil helps preventing constipation and in general maintains the digestive tract in good health.

3) Olive oil helps to reduce blood pressure

A study was done in 2002 that showed that Virgin Olive Oil might help with lowering cholesterol. (See: Effects of an onion-olive oil maceration product containing essential ingredients of the Mediterranean diet on blood pressure and blood fluidity).The results? After one week of taking olive oil daily (minus any “good foods and drinks… or fatty foods), the blood tests showed that the participants had higher levels of phenol and Vitamin E in their bodies. The study shows you how powerful olive oil can be and how it can help control healthy cholesterol levels.

4) Olive oil eases or prevents diabetes

Olive oil provides a diet high in monounsaturated fat. Researchers in Spain published an article in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in September 2003 has shown calorie-controlled diabetic diets high in monounsaturated fat do not cause weight gain and are more pleasing to eat than low-fat diets.

5) Olive oil lessens the severity of asthma or arthritis

Regular use of olive oil has been associated with lower rates of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. The monounsaturated fats in olive oil are used by the body to produce substances which are relatively anti-inflammatory. By reducing inflammation, these fats can help reduce the severity of arthritis symptoms, and may be able to prevent or reduce the severity of asthma

6) Olive oil can possibly help in the prevention of colon cancer

While most other fats are associated with an increased risk of colon cancer, olive oil is actually associated with a reduced risk of this disease. Olive oil contains 77% monounsaturated fatty acids, 14% saturated fatty acids, and 9% polyunsaturated fatty acids, plus vegetable mucilage and Vitamin E. Monounsaturated fatty acids are far less easily damaged by oxygen than other types of fat. They are therefore less likely to produce free radicals, which damage cell membranes and can cause Cancer.

7) Olive oil moisturizes skin and slower aging process

Olive oil is rich in vitamins A, B-1, B-2, C, D, and Iron. Most importantly, olive oil helps the body to maintain strong levels of vitamin E, which is a great helper in delaying the aging process. You can also use olive oil as face moisturizer since the healthy fatty acid existing in olive oil encourage soft and suppler skin.

Conclusive notes

Suggestion: Please remember, though, that heating the olive oil and ingesting it that way will most likely not benefit you much. The olive oil needs to be ingested right from the bottle. Otherwise, it would not benefit you much… if any.

Cancer Prevention
One study, published by The Archives of Internal Medicine, showed that women who consume high levels of mono-unsaturated fat have a lower risk of developing breast cancer.133 Another study by scientists at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York demonstrated that b-sitosterol, a fat found in vegetable oils such as olive oil, helps prevent the formation of prostate cancer cells. The researchers concluded that b-sitosterol strengthens the internal communication system of the cell that issues the command for the cells to divide and that cancer can thus be prevented before cell division reaches an uncontrollable level.
A recent study by doctors at the University of Oxford has shown that olive oil has a protective effect against intestinal cancer. The doctors discovered that olive oil enters into a reaction with stomach acid in order to prevent intestinal cancer from beginning. At the same time, the University of Oxford researchers also established that olive oil reduces the level of bile and raises that of DAO (the enzyme diamine oxidase), thus protecting against abnormal cell growth and cancer.
  1. Olive Oil - Minyak Zaitun Palestine
Benefits for Coronary and Arterial Health:
Most of the fatty acids in olives and olive oil are mono-unsaturated. Mono-unsaturated fatty acids do not contain cholesterol. Therefore, olive oil does not raise cholesterol levels but instead keeps them under control. Olive oil also contains omega-6 linoleic acid (EFA: essential fatty acid), which is essential for the human body. Due to this feature, health-related bodies (such as The World Health Organization) recommend that at least 30% of the fatty acid consumed in societies in which hardened artery and diabetes levels are high should consist of omega-6. This increases the importance of the olive still further.

Haramkan segera penjualan botol BPA

Haramkan segera penjualan botol BPA

PULAU PINANG 15 Mac - Kerajaan diminta menguatkuasakan serta-merta pengharaman penjualan botol susu polikarbonat yang mengandungi Bisphenol A (BPA). Presiden Persatuan Pengguna Pulau Pinang (CAP), S.M. Mohamed Idris berkata, Kementerian Kesihatan tidak seharusnya memberi tempoh setahun lagi untuk melaksanakan pengharaman tersebut kerana penggunaannya boleh menyebabkan gangguan terhadap sistem hormon termasuk fungsi tubuh bayi dan kanak-kanak.Tegas beliau, penangguhan tersebut hanya menyebabkan lebih ramai bayi dan kanak-kanak terdedah dengan persekitaran yang tidak sihat."Bayi khususnya amat berisiko kerana jumlah toksin yang dihadam adalah besar berbanding berat badannya. Begitu juga organ-organ bayi yang sedang membesar akan lebih teruk terjejas berbanding orang dewasa sekiranya masih menggunakan bahan kimia industri ini.''Oleh itu, kami menggesa pihak kementerian supaya menguatkuasakan serta-merta tindakan pengharaman pengimportan dan penjualan botol susu tersebut," katanya pada sidang akhbar di pejabat CAP di sini hari ini. Akhbar hari ini melaporkan kerajaan memutuskan untuk mengharamkan penggunaan penjualan botol susu BPA mulai 1 Mac 2012. Tindakan tersebut diambil sebagai langkah berjaga-jaga kerana sehingga kini masih tiada bukti saintifik menunjukkan botol susu tersebut selamat digunakan oleh golongan berisiko tinggi terutama bayi dan kanak-kanak. Mengulas lanjut, menurut S.M. Mohamed, China merupakan negara pertama di Asia yang secara rasmi mengharamkan botol susu bayi yang mengandungi BPA pada 4 Mac lalu. Beliau berkata, Kementerian Kesihatan China telah merangka satu peraturan yang disiarkan di dalam laman web rasmi mereka untuk mendapatkan pandangan umum tetapi tidak menjelaskan bila peraturan itu akan dikuatkuasakan. Selain itu katanya, dua negara anggota Kesatuan Eropah (EU), Perancis dan Denmark telah mengenakan tindakan tersebut ke atas pengeluaran botol susu terbabit dan telah melanjutkan larangan terhadap semua produk makanan untuk kanak-kanak berusia tiga tahun ke bawah. Justeru, kata S.M. Mohamed, CAP menyeru pihak berkuasa supaya mengharamkan pemasarannya termasuk melabelkan BPA sebagai bahan berbahaya. Sementara itu, di KUALA LUMPUR, kerajaan digesa supaya menyegerakan pengharaman penjualan botol susu jenis polikarbonat yang mengandungi Bisphenol A (BPA) kerana bimbang penggunaannya yang membahayakan kesihatan akibat sikap tidak peka pengguna. Presiden Persatuan Pengguna Kedah (Cake), Datuk Mohd. Yusof Ismail berkata, sepatutnya usaha mengeluarkan produk tersebut dari pasaran perlu disegerakan tanpa perlu melakukan penangguhan."Tidak sepatutnya alasan untuk membuat persediaan menukar, membeli mesin dan memilih bahan mentah yang sesuai digunakan bagi melanjutkan tempoh penguatkuasaan menghalang penjualan produk itu setahun lagi. "Seharusnya, pelbagai inisiatif lain perlu dirancang bagi mengatasi masalah tersebut sebelum pengumuman pengharaman penjualan botol susu jenis polikarbonat dilakukan," katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia ketika dihubungi di sini hari ini.Yusoff menambah, kerajaan seharusnya bertanggungjawab menghalang kebanjiran produk yang membahayakan pengguna dengan segera.Sementara itu, Presiden Persatuan Pengguna Subang dan Shah Alam (CASSA), Datuk Dr. Jacob George berkata, sejak tiga tahun lalu pelbagai usaha telah dilakukan untuk mengharamkan produk tersebut memasuki pasaran, namun ia menemui jalan buntu. Kata beliau, pengharaman botol susu jenis itu tidak dapat dipastikan sama ada ia akan menghalang lambakan produk tersebut di pasaran. "Sehubungan itu, rundingan antara kerajaan, syarikat pengeluar botol susu jenis polikarbonat dan persatuan pengguna perlu diadakan bagi menangani kemasukan produk itu pasaran secara haram. "Lebih membimbangkan, produk alternatif bagi menggantikan jenis BPA akan dipalsukan bagi tujuan menipu pengguna," katanya. Justeru itu, kata Jacob, rundingan tersebut diharapkan dapat menangani pelbagai isu lain yang bakal timbul berikutan pengharaman botol susu jenis polikarbonat yang mengandungi BPA di pasaran dalam tempoh setahun ini.

UPM temui penawar barah rawat leukemia payudara ovari rahim

UPM temui penawar barah - linamarin ubi kayu mampu rawat leukemia, payu dara, ovari dan Rahim

Berita Harian, Syuhada Choo Abdullah (22 06 2006) UPM temui penawar barah - linamarin ubi kayu mampu rawat leukemia, barah payu dara, ovari dan rahim. (Call Number: 2006/6-0001)

Bahan penawar kanser ini didapati dari ekstrak getah pokok ubi kayu.  Ekstrak getah mengandungi Linamarin yang mampu membunuh sel barah leukemia, sel barah payudara, sel barah ovari dan sel barah rahim. Ia adalah hasil penyelidikan pensyarah UPM Dr Norhafizah Abdullah bersama Rozita Rosli, Prof Madya Dr Fakru’l-Razi Ahmadun dan Prof Madya Dr Robiah Yunus. Produk Penyelidikan ini dikenali sebagai Isolation & Encapsulation of Cassava Linamarin  in Biodegradable Nanoparticles for Cancer Cells Targeting ini berjaya mendapat pingat emas dalam Pameran Penemuan dan Produk Baru (Inpex) di Pittsburg Amerika Syarikat, dari 7 – 11 Jun 2006. Hasil penemuan ini telah dipatenkan tetapi kenapa ia tidak digunakan besar besaran di kalangan pesakit kanser? Kenapa tiada kerjasama erat antara Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan Kementerian Kesihtan Malaysia? Jika produk baru ini lebih baik dari kimoterapi dan radioterapi tanpa kesan sampingan yang teruk, kenapa ia tidak digunakan di kalangan pesakit kanser. Kita percaya ramai pesakit kanser mahu mencubanya kerana ia kesan sampingannya tidak seteruk kesan kimoterapi ataupun radioterapi.
Dalam keratan akbar itu berbunyi begini; “Ini secara langsung meletakkan UPM pada peta Dunia. UPM hanya memilih produk terbaik ke pameran Pittsburgh. Ini bermakna pencapaian bidang penyelidikan UPM boleh dikelaskan sebagai berkualiti dunia. UPM boleh duduk sama tinggi dan sama rendah dengan Negara maju”  Maka sangat jelas kita fahami dengan sejelas jelasnya, pensyarah UPM atau UPM sendiri membuat penyelidikan kerana mengejar nama dan bukan bertujuan untuk kegunaan atau manfaat rakyat Malaysia yang menderita kanser! Jelas sekali ria dan kesombongan mereka pandai dengan ilmu yang dianugerah Allah pada mereka. Jauh sekali untuk duduk berbincang dengan agensi Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia bagi memberi rawatan terbaik kepada pesakit kanser! Bila nama naik, pangkat pun naik, gaji naik dan boleh beli kereta besar rumah besar dan rumah hebat. Yang laki2 sibuk nak kawen satu lagi… Itulah dia manusia yang lupa tanggungjawab sebenar mereka menjadi penyelidik . Jadi penyelidik bagi mengejar pangkat bukan bertujuan memberi kelegaan atau rawatan kepada pesakit kanser!!! Pesakit kanser di Malaysia tetap menderita walaupun kerajaan membelanjakan banyak wang kepada penyelidikan sebegini!! 2006 bermakna dah 6 tahun ! Kenapa UPM tak menawarkan rawatan kepada ribuan pesakit leukemia, breast kanser, ovarian kanser dan uterine kanser seluruh Negara? Kenapa mereka sampai hati biarkan pesakit kanser menderita?


'Linamarin' ubi kayu boleh rawat barah: UPM

KUALA LUMPUR: Satu sistem penghasilan sianida semula jadi yang digunakan oleh tumbuhan ubi kayu terhadap pemangsa boleh dimanfaatkan untuk rawatan penyakit kanser, menurut hasil satu kajian oleh Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Pensyarah dari Jabatan Kimia dan Kejuruteraan Alam Sekitar UPM, Dr Norhafizah Abdullah, yang mengetuai pasukan empat penyelidik yang menjalankan kajian itu, berkata ujian makmal telah membuktikan bahawa tumbuhan ubi kayu yang mengandungi paras sianogen yang berpotensi toksik (dipanggil "linamarin") boleh menjurus kepada pemusnahan sendiri sel-sel kanser.

"Hasil cerakin sitotoksiti in vitro menunjukkan linamarin yang diekstrak dari tumbuhan ubi kayu menyekat pertumbuhan dan membunuh pelbagai sel kanser seperti kanser ovari, leukemia, serviks dan kanser payudara," katanya. Dr Norhafizah berkata kepada pemberita demikian selepas sidang media bagi mengumumkan produk-produk UPM yang menyertai Pameran Reka Cipta dan Produk Baru 2006, yang diadakan di Monroeville Expo-Mart, Pittsburgh baru-baru ini.

Menjelaskan mengenai produk itu, Dr Norhafizah berkata penyelidikan yang mengambil masa tiga tahun itu belum diuji ke atas haiwan atau manusia tetapi beliau menjangka ia mempunyai masa depan yang cerah sebagai rawatan alternatif bagi penyakit kanser. "Pasukan ini sedang meneliti produk berkenaan dan satu daripada bidang itu ialah bagaimana untuk memastikan jumlah linamarin yang tepat dilepaskan ke dalam sistem bagi mengelakkan kesan sampingan terhadap tubuh manusia," katanya yang menambah bahawa jika kandungan sianida melebihi dos, ia dianggap sebagai toksik.

Pada masa ini, katanya, pasukan itu telah memilih partikel nano PLGA terbiodegradasikan sebagai pembawanya kerana ia mudah larut di dalam sistem tanpa menyebabkan kesan sampingan kepada tubuh manusia. Partikel nano digunakan untuk menghantar dadah, yang diformulasikan untuk disasarkan kepada sistem limfa, dinding arteri, atau limpa bagi sistem peredaran jangka panjang yang sistematik. Dr Norhafizah berkata satu lagi aspek penting produk berkenaan ialah ia boleh merawat pelbagai jenis kanser berbanding produk yang kini terdapat di pasaran yang khusus bagi penyakit kanser tertentu.

Projek bertajuk "The Isolation and Encapsulation of Cassava Linamarin in Biodegradable Nanoparticles for Cancer Cells Targeting" itu adalah satu ciptaan terbaru UPM yang memenangi pingat emas pada INPEX 2006 bawah kategori Produk Berkaitan Biologi. Satu lagi produk cemerlang UPM ialah "Enhance Micro Mobility Test-Bed in Multicast Based Mobile Ipv6 Wireless Networks" yang memenangi lima anugerah berprestij termasuk Anugerah Khas bagi Ciptaan Terbaik di Lingkaran Pasifik. Naib Canselor UPM Prof Dr Nik Mustafa Raja Abdullah memberitahu pemberita bahawa pencapaian itu menunjukkan Malaysia telah mengeluarkan penyelidik bertaraf dunia. BERNAMA

Mengapakah mereka ini sanggup membiarkan pesakit kanser sengsara? Adakah kerana mereka hanya mengejar duit dan pangkat semata mata?


Disini ada beberapa laman pesakit barah yang ditemui: Lebih baik jika pengalaman hidup mereka dikemaskini bagi panduan pesakit kanser yang lain. Andai mereka telah tiada, keluarga terdekat boleh menyambung usaha murni mereka.

And, they include less of the bacteria fighting components you need to keep your mouth clean and plaque free. All you actually need to kill the bacteria living in your mouth and trigger dental issues is oil of mint. This all-natural product has no unwanted effects and no added materials.  You’ll be able to find oil of mint as the primary ingredient in natural dental care remedies for instance OraMD. Hence, simplify your toothache remedies and your dental hygiene routine by using the organic course.  You’ll be grateful you did!
