Cells Implantation for Diabetes

As at 29th July 2009, newspapers all around Malaysia are reporting the emergence of the 4th case of death which relates to H1N1. Such case has caused serious turmoil in several local universities too including UKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) and UPM (Universiti Putra Malaysia). H1N1 was originally perceived as a disease which is caused by swines (pigs), which in the end turns out to be an uncorrected proof.

Since everything in the sophisticated society nowadays revolves around swines and pigs, researchers in a New Zealand biotechnology company has announced that they will soon implanting pig cells into the body of diabetes sufferers.

The reason? Simple enough. They had scientifically claimed that the incorporation of pig cells into human body can actually stimulate the production of insulin hormones from the pancreas. Although this does not seem to be able to cure the condition, but it would probably reduce a large amount of insulin intake by diabetics.

Such natural method, as in allowing our body to produce insulin hormones, is indeed a very good news, particularly to the people who suffer from diabetes. But is this way of implantation could really benefit humankind without any side effects? And to a large part of fellow Malaysians, this method just does not seem to be serving any purposes at all.

Some scientists were postulating that by implanting pig cells into the human body could prove to be fatal as such doing could possibly introduce the existence of new virus. As a matter of fact, this consequence seems to be very possible. But Dr. Elliot, managing director of the mentioned biotechnology company insisted that the postulation made by the scientists as "too theoretical".

No doubt, that seems to be a treatable method, but should we become ignorant about the existence of GT&F Products? The product invention by Prof. Mao has proven time after time, about how it could effectively reduce the blood glucose level and eliminating any possible metabolic syndromes. Most importantly, the consumption of the products does not appear to show any sign of side effects at all.

OPP ~ Penjagaan Pemakanan untuk Tekanan Darah Tinggi

In today's fast-paced society, people are eating more quickly, they prefer outside foods, they are lack of exercises. In addition, having to deal with more and more pressure nowadays, such inclination is really worrying. All these could contribute to the occurrence of hypertension. Just the slightest increase in blood pressure above the normal rate of 120/80 mmHg, it could increase your chances in getting eye-related disease, kidney disease, heart failure and many more.

Pn Masrisa, a senior nutritionist of our company had delivered a Malay health talk entitled “Penjagaan Pemakanan untuk Tekanan Darah Tinggi” on 27th July 2009 (Monday). In the beginning, she pointed out some facts about hypertension, including causes and symptoms of hypertension, its consequences, treatments as well as medicinal side effects. The most effective methods in controlling high blood pressure, as what Pn Masrisa had delivered, are by incorporating balanced diet and healthy lifestyle into your routine. Poor eating habits would definitely contribute significantly to unstable high blood pressure levels, especially for middle-age individuals.

On the other hand, she suggested by reducing the intake of sodium, cholesterol, sugar (especially those with high glycaemic index) and alcohol could decrease the chances of getting high blood pressure very effectively. Besides that, she also highlighted some interesting facts such as DASH (Diet Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and White Coat Hypertension (a situation where patients experience high blood pressure in front of doctors but nowhere else). Finally, she concluded the talk with an open-quiz session.

Next up, Pn. Masrisa demonstrated the proper ways in using electronic tensimeter. Some audiences volunteered to participate in the interactive session, a couple of them even requested for a double check to confirm their result. Lastly, the audiences all appeared to be motivated when they a newly composed song with the name “ε‰η¨‹δΈ‡ι‡Œ”. The song then marked the end of the OPP of the night.
