    Not very funny. You have a strange sense of humor.

    He did it again today. I had nothing to eat till I went out in the evening.
    I'm wondering if I may have no option but to take legal action.

    I'm giving up on sharing this kind of information here. It's obvious
    you don't understand the value of what I am posting, let alone have
    the frame of mind of what life extension means. It takes long hours
    to find and go thru all those studies, then comment on them.

    Just cos he may not understand the value of you posting, you are giving up?
    FYI, this is a community forum.

    Sometimes it is frustrating to feel that your posting is not appreciated. But if you have no vested interested or hidden agendas and if you feel good about it, then it is all worth it after "wasting time" in research and posting. Thisnk my comments is criticism, you should take a look at the "Healthy with no MSG' thread. I got hemtam left or right though I was just providing info based on external links. And I did not even talk about my food or menu unless being asked. While good in cooking, I was so internet dummy, I dont even know how to cut and paste youtube, location map in the google, or load pictures in the thread. And all these were done and uploaded by the forumers f.o.C though eventually I get the know how to do it with the help of the forumers. And two things originated from the forum - The book x change and Eat for fund - all organised by the forumers. Hell, I even have forumers doing dishes and serving FOC, too

    In fact, after posting in the usj.com.my wifey thought I was having cybersex! And just recently, when I started to post in citydata.com where the USA forumers congregate, she thought I was having a cyber affair!

    Whatever posting that you post in public forums is not going to be paid enough for your trouble where in actual fact, you not going to be paid at all. You just get paid for the Shiok Sendiri by sharing your info or knowledge where it is gonna to be useful for protect thier health and wealth. And sometimes strangers would PM you extending thier thanks personally.But for those who post without hidden agenda or dubious means, I am sure forumers would appreciate it. As I have had said, Sharing is Giving and you get some Happy Returns without expecting it, for real! In these 2 years to 3 years of posting , I have gained friends, knowledge, and acknowledgement that is priceless. Though I have gotten some yellow bananas along the way,it actually inspired me with a winning recipe - Banarama - well loved by non and usj forumers. Along the way, I have evn gotten - old vintage vodka, wines, tea and T shirts from forumers. But of course, the best gift is still from the jumpy Tupai who use to cruise my old restaurant and bring me his Irish whisky friends. Hic* hic* ( hell, once he even offer me the cake which is supposely for his wife from a wedding party which she didnt attend )

    I am sure if you have a secret recipe for making monies, you wouldnt share it in public. Me - I wouldnt even share the recipe for USA Sushi Rolls or my Suzy baked stuffed Chicken to my wifey, much less in the public forum. That's my secret

    As for your younger brother, I have this for you . Enjoy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l9r1...eature=related

    Sorry about my earlier post. I have been under heavy pressure
    these few months from this troublemaking younger brother of mine
    (Principal Engineer at Western Digital), whom I live with.

    He is out to kick me out of the house with pathetic, childish and evil
    psychological harassing tactics (such as turning on the radio loud
    before I wake up, knowing very well I suffer from tinnitus, or ringing
    in the ears, and locking the kitchen door, hiding the keys), when he
    knows he can't do it by legal means, since I am half owner of the property.

    Talk about what goes around, comes around.


    And since you are a chef with great interest in using diet and nutrition
    to prevent and/or cancer, particularly colon, here is the same post I
    have just made in the Immortality Institute's forum :




    Anthocyanins extracted from Chinese blueberry
    (Vaccinium uliginosum L.) and its anticancer effects
    on DLD-1 and COLO205 cells.



    ( DLD-1 is a highly drug-resistant colon cancer line. )


    Cell viability

    " .... the IC90 (90% inhibition rate) value of AV. uli
    (Vaccinium uliginosum, Chinese blueberry) was about
    100 g/ml, while the IC90 of AL. cae (Lonicera caerulea,
    bluerried or sweetberried honeysuckle) and AV. myr
    (Vaccinium myrtillus, bilberry) exceeded 250 g/ml for
    both DLD-1 and COLO205 cancer cells. "


    DNA fragmentation and apoptosis

    " ..... both AV. uli and AL. cae resulted in typical
    DNA-laddering, while the AV. uli efficacy was apparently
    superior to that of the AL. cae as shown of its' brighter
    bands on the gel. On the other hand, AV. myr (50 g/ml)
    showed little effect on inducing nuclear damage in cells
    and DNA fragmentation was inconspicuous, similar to the
    results of control group. "


    " By understanding the differences in ingredient percentages
    (Figure 2) we hypothesize that the preferable anticancer
    efficacy of AV. uli might be attributed to its high percentage
    of Mal. ]malvidin). "


    " ..... the extract mainly contains delphinidin and malvidin.
    Moreover, AV.uli is efficient for inducing apoptotic cancer
    cell death, and superior to AV. myr which is the primary
    anthocyanin in the market. Therefore, we conclude that
    AV.uli can be a promising and inexpensive anthocyanin
    source for therapeutic purposes against human colon and
    colorectal cancers. "

    " Bog blueberries are edible and have good flavor. The
    berries are often picked in large quantities and used
    in jams, jellies, and pies. They are the most popular
    fruit of Native Americans in the Fort Yukon region. "

    Have no experience in blue berries in my cooking. but have been cooking with wolfberries where it had been said to antioxidant properties to prevent particualry breast cancer. However, it must be cautioned that it should be not be taken excessively as it has levels of toxicity.

    Wolfberries is widely use in Chinese cuisine which is not as gey chee ( cantonese ).

    Blue berries is widely used in pastry or as desserts.

    The toxicity in wolfberries, Lycium barbarum, is due to
    atropine and other alkaloids such as solanine, as part of
    the Solanum, Belladonna or nightshade family.

    Tomatoes and potatoes are also in this family.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato#Plant_toxicity

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato#Toxicity


    Potatoes have small amounts of solanine in the green
    inner layer of their skin.

    Wolfberries, or goji, also interferes with warfarin.

    Add coriander (cilantro, "yim sai") to your cooking.

    Lowers blood pressure, cholesterol.

    Heavy metal chelator.

    Fights cancer, Alzheimer's.

    " Administration of Chinese parsley also significantly
    decreased lead deposition in the femur and severe
    lead-induced injury in the kidneys. In addition, urinary
    excretion of delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) which is
    known to increase with lead intake was significantly
    decreased after administration of Chinese parsley. "

    " .... cilantro, by some still-unknown mechanism, opens

    In effect, taking coriander regularly will protect your arteries,
    heart, brain and reduce your chances of dying from a heart
    attack or stroke, or being demented in old age.

    Coriander can thus be considered a life extension herb.

    For months, I have been trying to ask my elder sister and brother
    to add in coriander to my father's rice, who is demented in the nursing
    home. However, my pleas have fallen on deaf ears (they listen only to
    doctors, who tell them is nothing that can be done for demented patients).

    This cutting-edge research on the cognitive-enhancing
    and potential Alzheimer's fighting properties of coriander
    was sent to me by the researcher, Dr Vasudevan Mani,
    from UTM earlier this year, after I had noted his abstract
    on Medline.

    There is a reason why herbs and spices are and should be in meals like Bak Good Teh - Yim Sai in the boiling hot soupy Bak Good Teh and chillies in garlic combo. And downed with Chinese Tea.

    It is all herbs and spices that makes it taste nice, feel better with the balance of Yin and Yang.

    Just imagine taking Bak Kut Teh without herbs and spices while chowing down the Porky meat with the Tiger beer!

    Sorry to hear about your Dad condition but IMHO nothing much can be done once the dementia set in. However, it is the thought that counts but that doctor dont know that. Moreover, no harm done with Yim Sai intake as his diet because there is no medical contraindication.

    A lot can be done, actually. There are lots about this
    very complex disease that doctors do not know. All they
    know is the handful of drugs available to treat it, and
    palliatively at best, not working in many cases.

    That is why I have suggested that you take an interest in aging,
    and join the Immortality Institute's forum.

    If you could get enough locals interested, I can ask them to
    start a Malaysian chapter here.

    http://www.longecity.org/forum/forum/380-asia-india/


    Studying aging, its degenerative diseases and exploring ways
    to extend lifespan and fight these diseases, particularly with
    supplements and herbs, would be most interesting once you
    go into it.

    This is a common topic of interest for everyone, regardless of
    background, because no one avoids aging and death.

    For example, hardly any doctor or pharmacist would
    know that the tetracyclines have the potential to actually
    REVERSE Alzheimer's, not just palliate this condition as
    is the case with the handful of very expensive drugs typically
    used for it, like donepezil, rivastigmine, galantamine, tacrine
    and memantine.

    http://www.longecity.org/forum/topic...ost__p__442882



    Tetracyclines are antique and dirt cheap antibiotics.

    Doxycycline was relatively expensive in the 80s, but lots
    of cheap generics these days.



    I am unable to help my demented father, when his
    institutionalization in nursing homes placed him out of
    my hands, and further blockaded by my elder brother
    who trusts only doctors.

    Not too long ago, he and my sister took him to some
    "reputable" geriatrician at Sunway Medical Center here.
    After waiting for four hours, he wrongly diagnosed my
    father with Alzheimer's (any layman could say the same),
    and placed him on a course of Exelon, which is nothing
    more than rivastigmine in trandermal patches, costing
    M$20 each.

    The total bill came to M$ 900. $200 - consultation,
    $ 100 - blood test, $ 600 - Exelon patches, one month's supply.

    The Exelon was useless.


    A simple assessment of my father's post-stroke history
    would have told him that my father has vascular dementia,
    not Alzheimer's, which many elderly people end up with a
    year or two after a stroke.

    Vascular dementia has twice the mortality rate of Alzheimer's.


    This is what I would put my father on :

    Acetyl L-carnitine arginate (ALCA)
    Alpha GPC or CDP choline
    KR-alpha lipoic acid
    Benfotiamine or sulbutiamine
    Low dose tetracycline or doxycycline
    Oxiracetam
    Spanish sage or lemon balm extract
    Vitamin D3
    Fish oil
    Yi Gan San or the Rehmannia Eight formula, Ba Wei Di Huang Wan


    Diet with lots of coriander (Chinese parsley) and
    rice or porridge dyed blue with the Butterfly pea,
    Clitoria ternatea, which the Kelantanese Malays
    use to dye their cakes and nasi kerabu (bunga telang).

    That blue color may also have helped your brother - the
    blue is delphinidin, a potent cancer fighter.

    Delphinidin is actually available as a food colouring, E163b.

    Malvidin, another potent cancer fighter as mentioned above
    in the post on Chinese blueberries, is E163c.
