Read the title again. It makes sense.  I say this  as I learn each day – which means that yesterday I didn’t know what I would learn today.

There is a situation where my cultural background gets into the way.  As an American, I was designed to think big and know that if you reach out, you can reach up.  However, as I try and help people – especially in different cultures – most of the people are satisfied where they are – which is so foreign to me.

Share your adventures and tell all of us your thoughts.  I love waking up knowing that I will be smarter when my head hits the pillow at night.  Some knowledge may not be what I wanted – but it is knowledge.

Regards to all – best to you and yours!

O K – that’s enough for now.  Oh heck, here a story you might enjoy.

An Irish Family Tradition

Paddy, had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.

It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 18th birthday.

On that special day, they’d each walked across the lake to the pub on the far side for their first legal drink.

So when Paddy’s, 18th birthday came ’round, he and his pal Mick, took a boat out to the middle of the lake, Paddy, stepped out of the boat …and nearly drowned!

Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Paddy, went to see his grandmother.

‘Grandma,’ he asked, “It’s my 18th birthday, so why can’t I walk ‘cross the lake like my father, his father, and his father before him?”

Granny looked deeply into Paddy’s, troubled brown eyes and said, “Because your father, your grandfather and your great grandfather were all born in December, when the lake is frozen, and you were born in August, ya dip.

Have a great day!  Enough of so much seriousness – time for a nap!

That is the headlines to the LifeStyle section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer for Tuesday September 25, 2012.  I am not sure you would ever see an article like this in a major western country’s news outlet.  However, we do have some honest reporters and honest news still in some countries!

So many major western countries have mandatory laws now  dictating the use of Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s) – by law!

Here at Asia Green – we advocate for the Environment and WELLNESS – this is truly an issue that spans both areas.

“A recent study by scientists of Stony Boork University in New York determined that curlicue or spiral-shaped CFLs emit UV (ultraviolet) rays from cracks in the coating that can harm human skin cells.  Apart from UV rays, CFL’s and fluorescent tubes contain mercury powder or vapor that is dangerous to health when inhaled.”  Sounds like a pretty powerful statement about light bulbs mandated by governments – and how they harm populations.

Additionally, according to Filipino-Chinese Dr. Juanito “SAM” C. Uy, “CFL’s with the conventional fluorescent tubes, could be health hazards.  UY said most people believe that mercury leaks only when the bulbs break.  Tat’s true too, he said, but they also leak mercury vapor into a room all the time – from the minute they are switched on to the time they are switched off.”

O K – now by government mandate, we are slowly killing ourselves, our families – in the home and at work.  What to do?  We know if we use the “old” light bulbs, we will be fined and might go to jail and the Environmentalists go crazy.  I can imagine protests on the front lawns!  Even though they are probably the least educated of society when it actuallys comes to wellness and the environment.  The Environmentalists have different motivates!

What do we do – We advocated strongly the use of Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s).  Why?  Well, at typical fluorescent tube has 7,000-8,000  hours.  AN LED has 40,000-60,000 hours.  LED’s have three to four more years of life than CFL’s and fluorescents.  LED’s typically have a five-year product warranty and 10-year warranty on repairs.  CFL’s have typically 60-90 lumens (units of brightness) per watt.  LED’s have 110-140 lumens per watt.  Example – a 20W CLF can be replaced by a four-watt LED – it will be just as bright, use less engery, is RECYCLABLE, does not harm the environment or people, is directional, etc.  Just makes so much sense to use LED’s over what is mandated by the government!

I would ask everyone to rethink their strategy.  Check it out at the local hardware store.  4th Generation LED’s make much more sense than CFL’s!  Much safer, healther, use much less electricity, and last more than 4 times longer!  By the way – checkout the mandated government procedure for getting rid of one CFL bulb or fluorescent bulb – it is over 7 pages of instructions – LED’s recycle!  So – use LED’s – no need to buy a new bulb for 10-20 YEARS!

We hope everyone takes a moment and understands there are alternatives that are cheaper, healthier, and much more advantageous for the environment.  When the government finds out about how they are mandating the killing of the environment (where do we throw the mercury laden CFL’s – that the mercury has a great chance of ending up in our drinking water!), mandating the slow death of its population – as already proven by scientific studies – their answer might be – “Well, we meant well!”  Is that good enough?

We strongly advocate the use of LED’s.  Check it out at the local hardware store – ask for 4th Generation LED’s!

Here is the straight skinny:

L-CARNITINE

Carnitine, also known as Acetyl-l-carnitine or L-carnitine, is an amino acid that your body uses to turn fat into energy. Amino acids are the basic components of proteins, a major source of cell wall strength and muscle-building. Most people are able to synthesize an adequate amount of L-carnitine from their diets. Some people, however, are deficient in this necessary micronutrient and may need to take carnitine as a supplement. If you’re one of those people, talk to your doctor about getting the right supplement in the right dosage.

– Heart and Vascular Health benefits –

If you have chronic stable angina, a number of studies have shown that L-carnitine supplements can help control your symptoms, allowing you to do more exercise with less pain. According to the Linus Pauling Institute, researchers have also examined the use of L-carnitine following myocardial infarction, or MI, a type of heart attack, and for heart failure. The results for people who had an MI were mixed, but if you have heart failure, a certain kind of L-carnitine supplement may improve your exercise tolerance. All the studies were done on people who were using L-carnitine supplements in addition to other medical therapies, so if you have heart disease, consult your physician before taking this or any other supplement.

BLACK TEA

Black tea contains a number of antioxidants, which are compounds that help the body fight free radicals (chemical by-products known to damage DNA). These antioxidants include quercetin, a substance said to combat inflammation and support healthyimmune function.

To date, research on black tea’s cardiovascular benefits has yielded mixed results. For instance, a 2009 review of nine previously published studies (including a total of nearly 195,000 participants) concluded that drinking three cups of black or green tea daily reduced risk of stroke by 21 percent. However, a 2007 study of 31 adults (ages 55 and older) found that six months of black-tea consumption did not significantly influence any cardiovascular risk factors (such as inflammation and systolic blood pressure). Both the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the National Institutes of Health point to this study as evidence that black tea may have no impact on cardiovascular health.

As we promised, we are educating our followers and casual readers with some news about all-natural, organic products available now at www.asiagreen.org.  For most people, this information is hidden from public view by marketing of huge companies that want to sell products laced with sugar, none essential ingredients, and just junk!  It makes it easy for these corporations to make cheap products then market them as “healthy!”

Now lets talk about the ACAI Berry.  How many have heard of the ACAI Berry? Here are some facts:

The Acai palm bears fruit twice and year, and the fruit is harvested by people as food. When consumed, the berry leaves a slight hint of bitter after taste, which resembles that of chocolate. It can be prepared in many different ways before consumption. Mostly, the Acai berry is prepared as drinks such as fruit sodas, fruit juices, smoothies, and so on. Therefore, it is very convenient for consumption.

When consumed on a regular basis, the Acai berry offers many health benefits. The Acai fruit is good for the body mainly because of its antioxidant properties. It is able to rid the body of harmful toxins in a relatively short period of time. The antioxidant process starts in about 2 hours after consumption of the Acai berry.

As a result, shortly after consumption of Acai berries, an individual may start to feel a boost in energy levels. Lethargy will be removed, leaving more energy for other daily activities. It improves mental clarity and promotes sound sleep. It even helps with digestive functions.

But perhaps the greatest benefit that has been given the most attention is that the Acai berry helps in the weight loss process. As you probably understand by now, the Acai berry helps improve the general health of the entire body by removing harmful toxins. Blood circulation is improved when the toxins are removed.

Improved blood circulation eventually leads to slowing down of the aging process. Skin will look healthier, and cholesterol levels are regulated. The heart, which is one of the most important muscle in the human body, also starts to become stronger. If the body is currently suffering from any physical injuries, the improved blood circulation and the strong heart will certainly help speed up the healing process.

Given such benefits, it would be a good idea to incorporate some Acai berries into our daily diet.

WOW!  Did you know all that?  We look forward to more information to provide – and by the way – it is cheaper to live healthy than not!  Check out www.asiagreen.org.  You will see lots of good stuff for your body, family, health, and most of all, your mental health!

Enjoy!

I am going to attempt in my amateur, non-doctor, manner to explain “Free Radicals,” how they are destructive, and some methods to prevent them.

Free Radicals can be atoms, ions, molecules, or fragments of molecules. The one thing they have in common is that they contain at least one electron that is “free” – that is not paired with another electron. (Pierce, James B., Ph.D. 19944. Heart Healthy Magnesium). This electron is unstable and highly reactive and to regain stability, must “steal” another electron from a neighboring molecule. That neighbor is usually a cell membrane, or plasma, or a chromosome. As it steals an electron, it causes injury. This injury can lead to atherosclerosis, heart disease, cancer, tumor, diabetes, arthritis, aging, hypertension, anemia, emphysema, cataract, skin disease, weak immune system, and many more complications. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke, pollution and radiation. There are many man-made causes for Free Radicals – these are just a few we know of now. Sounds BAD! It happens in the body!

Now, the “cure” or prevention. “Antioxidants!” Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Antioxidants are found in many foods. These include fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, and some meats, poultry and fish.

How Antioxidants stabilize Free Radicals – The free radicals are super-oxides, hydroxyl, hydrogen peroxides. Each orbit of an atom usually contains a pair of electrons per orbital. At its outer most orbital, when a fellow had been removed the remaining fellow turns the atom into a “Free Radical” that is highly unstable. An electron is removed by heat, or “by your drawing in cigarette smoke, submitting yourself to an X-ray examination, basking in the sun, eating a bologna sandwich, drinking a cocktail, etc. (Walker, M. M.P.D. 1984. The Miracle Healing Power of Chelation Therapy, page 139).

PHILNoni has excellent antioxidants that mop up Free Radicals! I will be posting more about PHILNoni in the near future and some of the specific characteristics. 30ML in the morning and 30ML in the evening will have amazing results. Some of the testimonials can be found at www.asiagreen.org.

My own testimony – I had a cut on the bottom of my foot for over 6 years – all the medicines, ointments, special socks, special shoes – nothing worked to heal the cut. After five weeks of PHILNoni – the cut disappeared!

Now – there is a difference – I talked with Dr. Tito Contado – a former Professor at the University of the Philippines at Los Banos, and former Chief of the United Nations FAO Service of Agricultural Education and Extension. DR. Tito explained to me that PHILNoni, not only being an excellent and God-Given natural resource to fight Free Radicals – is also a BODY ENHANCER! There are supplements that when the body receives, if the body needs them uses them and discharges the rest. This happens with vitamins. With PHILNoni – it actually helps body functions – function! That is why my cut was repaired naturally by the body!

There are so many wonderful all-natural, organic resources around the world. We have been fortunate to been involved with Dr. Tito as he developed PHILNoni – it is now available to you! I personally have used it – now so can you! Check out the testimonials at www.asiagreen.org. You can also order PHILNoni as well! This is band NEW – although it has been around for centuries!

Thank-you for your time and consideration. For those that are tired of taking pills, medicine – try some alternatives – see if they work! it has for me and countless others! I have to put a disclaimer here – check with your doctor first – although I didn’t – I am not advocating completely unleashing from man-made medicines immediately – however, there are alternatives!

We look forward to serving all of you in the near future.

Trash is everywhere!  We tend to categorize trash into two piles – Bio-Degradable and Non-Biodegradable.  Either way, tons of TRASH are being put into Manila Bay each and everyday!  Guess what?  The Bay is spitting it back on us!

Recently there was a huge storm surge.  The storm surge deposited over 1,900 TONS OF TRASH onto Roxas Boulevard.  The U.S. Embassy was affected to the point it closed operations.  After the storm surge – the city was complaining “Durijg storm-related calamities, the volume increases five-fold and include water damaged appliances and furniture.”  This was a direct quote taken from the Philippine Daily Inquirer of August 15, 2012.

Today, just a couple of weeks later, there is no more news about trash although tons are still being dumped each and everyday into the bay.  Additionally, I recently wrote about a dinner cruise I had the pleasure of taking on the beautiful bay – halfway during the dinner cruise, the smell was so overpowering no one could continue their eating!  I would guess that included in the two kinds of general trash is now a third category – human waste!

It is sometimes reported that there are over 20 tons of trash being dumped into the bay everyday.  Pictures are occasionally found in the local papers and TV news reports of children  “walking” on water – across the trash.   I would suspect, and my research bears out that there are many places in the world where corruption and negligence plays a huge role in disease, fouling drinking water, and making living conditions horrible for millions of people.  Corruption?  Yep, it is a dirty little secret here in the Philippines that many Mayors take a cut of each truck load of trash – and the trash is not deposed of properly.  Negligence?  Yep – law enforcement does not enforce the laws – either because they too are on the take or they don’t have the necessary tools and assets to stop the known pollution!

Lets take for a minute the human waste being dumped into the Manila Bay – how many ships are in the bay – where is the enforcement for when those ships dump their loads?  Where is the enforcement when developers just dump raw sewage into the bay?

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) has some innovative, cost effective methods of turning trash into reusable materials – both bio-degradable and non-biodegradable.   The “Zero-Waste Recycling Movement of the Philippines” also has some tremendous methods of turning trash into usable products.  How come there is no movement to use these cost effective techniques to rid ourselves of the trash?  I would suspect that once the politicians are exposed for the harm they are doing to the environment – and thereby people – all in the name of money in their pocket – the system will change.

Until the system changes and the politicians are brought to bear for their actions, and the companies that are knowingly ignoring laws and regulations are brought to justice, we will continue to have massive pollution, sickness, and problems!

There are systems right now in Manila that can recycle ALL trash into cement blocks or charcoal. These systems can also be used as livelihood programs!

Lets all think about it for a moment and just start asking questions.  There are solutions! Many other countries and cities have found the will to change and have clean, productive, and most of all lasting environments!  How about us?
