    At the rate malaysians are going to mamaks and 24 eatery, these figures are no longer applicable soon...

    I think we are spoilt with too much food now and no exercise...

    My 1st day career and income until now are from this black hydrocarbon compound from underneath the earth…

    But, I have no love for this black liquid..

    Oil is the the main detonator for war, evil and stupidity..
    It has been more than a century, human still fail to find an alternative for the mass substituition of oil. With my swallow knowledge of science, I cannot think this is true.

    Two days ago when I took a return flight to KL, I confronted a middle-east youth and “F” him kau kau with the language he could not understand. This fella and his friends are coming to KL for cheap holidays to escape the cold winter, I think.

    I guess they have used to the life that foreigners mainly from South Asia are workers, maids, assistants and whatever who are at their disposal in their homeland. They are inconsiderate (laughing loud even the cabin light are switched off for sleeping time), rude (pull and push the seat in front of them when they are leaving their seats to the lavatory).

    Don't tell me this is an isolated case. Those who travelled often to and from middle-east maybe can share their experience.

    I think I will not travel with any middle-east airline anymore for business and leisure..

    Sorry to digress from the thread topic..

    I have posted this before...

    The high-class middle eastern holiday-makers are in Milan, London, Zurich, Geneva, St. Moritz, Monte Carlo, Paris, New York, Anaheim, Orlando, Tokyo, while the low-class, low-end ones are here in Batu Ferringhi... we call them the ninjas... you can see them argue with satay man, trishaw man and they only buy RM8 Manchester United jerseys.... they love fake Oakleys and they treat everybody here in Batu Ferringhi like rubbish! And they also buy cheap Johnnie Walker red labels and some Bombay Gin to get drunk on the beach with their all-black ninja girls...

    And they think every other girl they see on the beach or near the swimming pools at the beach hotels are for sale at USD30! Really uncouthed and unpolished group of people... and I thought they are supposed to be holier than us...

    9 out of 10 fights on the Batu Ferringhi beach, 9 out of 10 accidents involving jetskis or horse-riding has to be by these group of cheapskate low-end middle-eastern tourists... they can rent a horse for an hour and after that just leave the horse anywhere they like and even ride these horses up to their hotel miles away and leave it there without telling you... idiots!

    Call me a racist - no problem with that.... coz I hate the presence of these low class tourists in my town... I only welcome Singaporeans and Klang Valley people who come to enjoy the durians and the char kuey teows and the apom manis.... not the drunkard cheapskate trouble-makers...

    I believe the above is just the AVERAGE life expectancy.


    The last I read, the cancer statistics were :

    Chinese - 1 in 4
    Indians - 1 in 5
    Malaysia - 1 in 7


    The imbalance is likely even more pronounced. Two years ago, my father
    was warded in the surgical ward of UH for a ruptured stomach ulcer. Cancer
    patients, I believe, the surgical cases, were also warded there, and their names
    were listed on a board.

    Some 70 per cent of those on the list were Chinese, with the remainder
    about equal between Indians and Malays.


    I think one of the main reasons for the shorter average lifespan of the
    Malays and Indians is the higher incidence of not just diabetes, but their
    far higher sugar intake.

    Diabetes is actually considered a model of accelerated aging.

    Alzheimer's has been referred to as Type 3 diabetes.

    This is why one of the goals of life extensionists is to reduce glycation
    - the binding of sugar to proteins resulting in advanced end glycation products
    (AGES), which cause many of the changes and diseases you see in aging.

    Crosslinking, a good example of which are the lines you see around your eyes
    as we age, is a result of AGES.

    Kidney failure in diabetes and old age is largely caused by AGES.

    .
    Cancer is a 'rich man' disease from eating too much meat and fat, smoking etc.


    PS. It is not malaysia but malays !

    Not really, I do not think that it is strictly from diet. My brother in law is a vegetarian, does not smoke, is only 60 kg on a 5' 11" frame but was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. You go figure

    It depends on when he stopped smoking and become vegetarian. ie. how many years.

    It is just like the saying, just before death, a killer stops killing but that doesn't wipe away his past deeds.

    And also you have to know whether he was exposed to second hand smoke, asbestos or other job related environment.

    What is contradictory about my statements above ?

    Smoking is nicotine from one's puffing. While second hand smoke is still nicotine from other people's smoke. Asbestos is also poisonous that gets into the lungs. The key points are all these are poisons. There are many types of poisons in the world and not just ONE poison ie. nicotine.

    Rich men's diet consists of a lot of meat and fat which poor men in the past mostly take vegetables. This cause a different type of cancer ie. mostly colon cancer.

    There are many causes of headaches just as there are many causes of cancer.

    To say that he is a non smoker but he also get cancer (to prove that one can still continue smoking ) is illogical if we don't know the details of when he stopped smoking, what other poisons he breathed throughout his whole life.

    Of course, then we also have to look at his intrinsic body constitution. Not all bodies are made the same. A weak body is more prone to cancer than a strong one.

    Then there's the matter of racial genetics, certain races are more prone to certain diseases and allergies eg. Chinese are mostly lactose intolerance (to fresh milk) while indians are less.

    Life is not all 'black and white', 'hell and heaven', 'one planet, one moon' but million shades of color in between.
