world environment day

World environment day

The 2015 theme for World Environment Day is Sustainable consumption and production. The slogan for the theme is "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care."
The well-being of humanity, the environment, and the functioning of the economy, ultimately depend upon the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. Evidence is building that people are consuming far more natural resources than what the planet can sustainably provide.

Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.

The WED theme this year is therefore "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care."

Living within planetary boundaries is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future. Human prosperity need not cost the earth. Living sustainably is about doing more and better with less. It is about knowing that rising rates of natural resource use and the environmental impacts that occur are not a necessary by-product of economic growth.

Maggi-under-regulatory-scanner-for-lead-MSG-beyond-permissible

Lets have a look as to what is this MSG and lead.

Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant amino acids in the diet that occurs naturally in protein-containing foods such as meat, vegetables, and dairy products.

 MSG is a flavor enhancer traditionally used in Chinese food. MSG provides the benefit of umami (savory) taste, tricks your tongue into making you think a certain food is highly nutritious ,stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin and may be addictive. It is a kind of toxin that can cause diabetes, adrenal gland malfunction, seizures, high blood pressure, excessive weight gain, stroke and other health problems.

It could also be argued that if used in small amounts will not be a problem, but if small amounts are in several common foods that are consumed every day, the problem moves to a much graver scale.

Another culprit found  in Maggi- LEAD which interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Symptoms include abdominal pain, confusion, headache, anemia, irritability,

 “As humans, we like to have an explanation for things, and especially for the things we love to eat RIGHT ...the choice is all your a 2min meal may lead to a lifetime of illness.

World No Tobacco Day 31st may

 World No Tobacco Day 31st may



"Stop illicit trade of tobacco products " is this year's theme

The illicit cigarette trade is defined as “the production, import, export, purchase, sale, or possession of tobacco goods which fail to comply with legislation”

Illicit trade takes tax revenue away from the Government, which could have otherwise been spent on the provision of public services, instead directing such funds into the hands of criminals. Illicit trade strengthens corruption and weakens good governance.

The global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people each year, of which more than 600 000 are non-smokers dying from breathing second-hand smoke.

What’s the greatest threat to a smoker’s health? 

Lung cancer is a good guess, and a wrong answer. Cigarettes cause 124,000 lung-cancer deaths  each year, but do you know they kill even more people (138,000) via heart disease. Smokers suffer heart attacks at twice the rate of nonsmokers—and they’re less likely to survive them.

Fortunately, these effects are reversible. Quit smoking, and your risk of a heart attack drops almost immediately, returning to that of a never-smoker within five to 15 years.

Cigarettes contain over 4,000 toxic chemicals, 50 of which are known to cause cancer and nicotine is one of them. WHO estimates passive smoking causes 600,000 deaths every year.

Tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year, of which more than 600 000 are non-smokers dying from breathing second-hand smoke.One-third of those killed are children who are often exposed to smoke at home, according to the WHO. 
 
STOP SMOKING DON’T KILL YOURSELF AND US TOO

World Health Day 2015

 World Health Day 2015 


The theme for World Health Day 2015 is food safety

As our food supply becomes increasingly globalized, the need to strengthen food safety systems in and between all countries is becoming more and more evident. That is why the WHO is promoting efforts to improve food safety, from farm to plate (and everywhere in between) on World Health Day, 7 April 2015.
Unsafe food can lead to food borne and water borne diarrhoeal diseases. Also Chemical or toxin contamination can cause acute poisoning or chronic diseases like cancer.
WHO helps countries prevent, detect and respond to foodborne disease outbreaks. Together with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), WHO alerts countries to food safety emergencies through an international information network.

Five keys to safer food

Food safety is a shared responsibility. It is important to work all along the food production chain – from farmers and manufacturers to vendors and consumers.
WHO’s Five keys to safer food offer practical guidance to vendors and consumers for handling and preparing food:
Check quality of food ingredients while purchasing Check use-by dates and labels of packed food
  • Key 1: Keep clean raw fruits and veges and keep the working surfaces clean.
  • Key 2: Separate raw and cooked food
  • Key 3: Cook food thoroughly reheat leftovers thoroughly so that they are steaming
  • Key 4: Keep food at safe temperatures. Refrigerate food promptly and properly.Refrigerate cooked food within 2 hours of preparation
  • Key 5: Use safe water and raw materials.
World Health Day 2015 is an opportunity to alert people working in different government sectors, farmers, manufacturers, retailers, health practitioners – as well as consumers – about the importance of food safety, and the part each can play in ensuring that everyone can feel confident that the food on their plate is safe to eat.

Safe food = Healthy lives

Green antioxidant rich drink

 Green antioxidant rich drink
chetana greendrink

This consist of Baby spinach ,tulsi,ajwain leaves from kitchen garden,  guava and dash of lemon juice…..go green.

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), manganese, folate, magnesium,  potassium, and vitamin C.
Tulsi holy Indian plant has many benefits like it has anti-bacterial and anti-biotic properties hence treats cold, cough fever and also increases immunity.
Ajwain leaves help in digestion and acidity
Guava and lemon will give vitamin C which again is a powerful antioxidant.

Green foods get their color from a pigment called chlorophyll,they high amounts of Vitamin K,lutein and zeaxanthin, phytochemicals such as indoles and glucosinolates and potassium.

Why you should eat more:
Chlorophyll, a natural blood purifier supports the liver and kidneys in the elimination of toxins. Vitamin K is necessary for blood clotting and building strong bones.Lutein and zeaxanthin can filter out harmful light that damages the eyes.

A daily serving of this can slash your chances of having a heart attack, very good for digestion, in both high and low BP.
