Crying From Heaven

Dear Mommy and Papa,

I am in Heaven now, sitting on God' lap. He loves me and cries with me; for my heart has been broken. I so wanted to be your little girl.

I don't quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existence. I was in a dark, yet comfortable place.

I saw I had fingers and toes. I was pretty far along in my developing, yet not near ready to leave my surroundings. I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping.

Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me. Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry. I heard Daddy yelling back. I was sad, and hoped you would be better soon. I wondered why you cried so much.

One day you cried almost all of the day. I hurt for you. I couldn't imagine why you were so unhappy. That same day, the most horrible thing happened. A very mean monster came into that warm, comfortable place I was in.

I was so scared, I began screaming, but you never once tried to help me. Maybe you never heard me. The monster got closer and closer as I was screaming and screaming, " Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me."

Complete terror is all I felt. I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn't anymore.Then the monster started ripping my arm off. It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain. It didn't stop. Oh, how I begged it to stop. I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off.

Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying. I knew I would never see your face or hear you say how much you love me.

I wanted to make all your tears go away. I had so many plans to make you happy. Now I couldn't; all my dreams were shattered. Though I was in utter pain and horror, I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all.

I wanted more than anything to be your daughter. No use now, for I was dying a painful death. I could only imagine the terrible things that they had done to you.

I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone, but I didn't know the words you could understand. And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them; I was dead. I felt myself rising.

I was being carried by a huge angel into a big beautiful place. I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone.

The angel took me to God and set me on His lap. He said He loved me, and He was my Father. Then I was happy. I asked Him what the thing was that killed me.

He answered, "Abortion. I am sorry, my child; for I know how it feels." I don't know what abortion is; I guess that's the name of the monster.

I'm writing to say that I love you and to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl. I tried very hard to live. I wanted to live.

I had the will, but I couldn't; the monster was too powerful.

It sucked my arm and legs off and finally got all of me. It was impossible to live.

I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you.

I didn't want to die. Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster.

Mommy, I love you and I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did. Please be careful.

Love, Your Baby Girl

Friends please pass it on cause Abortion it's very dengerous for huminity

Nutritional Supplements, Creatine, Androstenedione, Protein Supplementation, The FDA on Supplements,

Nutritional Supplements

Athletes today are looking for competitive edges to improve performance. Many times, this involves nutritional supplementation. This does not only apply to highly paid professional or professional-bound collegiate athletes, high school athletes are purchasing nutritional supplements at a high rate. The inherent problem with nutritional supplements is that they are unregulated by the Federal Drug Administration, marketed without reproducible scientific research, and recommended by nonprofessional sales people. This article will focus on three or four of the most commonly purchased nutritional supplements. This article should not be viewed as an endorsement of these products nor a recommendation to consume them; it is being written for educational purposes only.


Creatine is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is an essential component of the anaerobic energy system. Creatine, when coupled with a phosphate (phosphocreatine or creatine phosphate), is used by the body to replenish Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the energy compound fueling muscle contraction. Creatine supplementation also does not seem to alter the body’s natural production of creatine the same way that steroid usage shuts down natural testosterone production.

Creatine is supplied either as a powder or in pill form. Athletes typically take a “loading dose" of 20 to 25 grams a day for one week; then begin a "maintenance cycle" of 3 to 5 grams per day. The "loading" and "maintenance" dosage recommendations differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. The athlete should take the "maintenance" dose for approximately one month and then cycle off for one month. The cycle then begins again with the "loading" dose. No clinical research has been done to determine if this is a safe and effective dosing regimen for creatine. Many physicians caution that the above dosages may be too high. Many professionals are recommending that the loading dose be eliminated and that the athlete only supplements with one-half of the recommended daily dose.

Creatine does have inherent problems, most notably making dehydration easier to occur. Creatine is a large, "water hungry" molecule: it requires more water to be stored in the muscle while taking the supplement. This extra water storage distends the cells, making the tensile strength of the muscle cell walls lower. Decreasing the tensile strength of muscle cell membranes will allow the muscle to be injured easier. Also, if the strength gain is as dramatic as the claims the additional muscle power could in effect lead a muscle damaging itself. Also, if the body is storing more water in the muscle cells, overall dehydration and dehydration illness could happen easier.

There have been no long-term (greater than 10 years) studies to investigate the affects of creatine on kidney, liver, and heart function. For this reason physicians and researchers are stressing the controlled use in adult populations with proper cycling off periods to return muscles to "normal hydration" and to allow the kidneys and liver to return to "normal function."

The affect on heart muscle is also not completely known. Does creatine supplementation cause enlargement of the cardiac muscle? Research is still pending on this question. There are many risks centered on cardiac hypertrophy and related diseases. The athletic population tends to have larger hearts than the non-athletic population; therefore greater enlargement due to creatine supplementation may lead to cardiac damage.

The issue of prepubescent or children early in puberty supplementing with creatine is an area of great concern. No research is currently being performed to test the possible adverse reactions in this population group. Strength training in prepubescent and early pubescent athletes is acceptable (without supplementation) utilizing body weight only. Weight training with traditional weights can cause damage to maturing bones, muscles, and tendons. Supplementing with creatine in this population group may also lead to damage in the same areas due to the increased ability to workout longer. It also may cause damage to the liver, kidneys, and heart in the physically immature individual.


Androstenedione, 4-Androstenediol, 19-Norandrostenediol, and 19-Norandrostenedione are essentially the same compound. This substance is a precursor to the androgenic steroids testosterone and estrogen. Since this compound can be metabolized into either gonadotropic steroid there is debate as to the efficacy of supplementation. The path of metabolism is determined by multiple factors within the endocrine system.

Studies have conflicting results as to the exact result of “andro” supplementation. Early studies showed that the level of estrogen, not testosterone, increased with “andro” supplementation. While, a study just released by the Harvard Medical School, concluded that “andro supplementation did increase testosterone levels.

These conflicting reports simply show that supplementation with hormones or hormone precursors is a guessing game at best. This is best explained by the fact that hormone production is a process mediated by other hormones. Whether the body needs testosterone or estrogen (in either male or female subjects) is governed by Adrenocortiotropic Hormone and Leutinizine Hormone. The balance of these two chemicals combined with the stress on the subject body determine if estrogen or testosterone is to be produced.

The bottom line is still that increased testosterone by itself does not improve the performance of an athlete. The training that develops coordination and sport specific skill must occur in conjunction with strength, power and speed development. The three areas are not mutually exclusive in developing athletic ability.

Protein Supplementation

Protein powders, shakes, and pill supplements have been a mainstay of the supplement business for years. These combinations of essential, branched-chain, or complex proteins all have individually superior claims. The bottom line is that if training levels do not exceed demands, the extra consumption of protein is metabolized out into increased adipose tissue (stored as fat) or is excreted in the urine. Either way, this is a tremendous loss of money.

There is one amino acid supplement to avoid, L-Tryptophan. This essential amino acid, when used in too high a volume can result in a condition known as eosinophilia myalgia syndrome. This syndrome is a fatal blood disorder with symptoms of fever, joint pain, skin rash, and death.

Other Supplements

There are far too many supplements for this small article to cover. The claims from these include: “increase muscle mass,” “decrease in body fat percentage,” “cleansing of the system,” and any other “catch phrase inserted here.” Many of these supplements tout themselves as “all natural” or “herbal” products. Do any of theses work? That is the ultimate question. Keep in mind that our body is a massive chemical reactor, and as with all chemical reactions, the environment determines the ultimate end.

Products that contain mawaung need special consideration. This herb contains the chemical ephedra. Ephedra is a central nervous system stimulant. Consumption of this herb can result in increased pulse, irregular heart beat, insomnia, headaches, seizures, heart attack, nerve damage, stroke, and symptoms consistent with hepatitis or psychosis. Will this happen to everyone? Probably not. Consumption of this herb should be limited to short term use of less that 20 mg per day. Ultimate Orange, Fit America, and numerous other supplements contain this ingredient.

Please keep in mind that prescription drugs can have serious negative interactions with nutritional supplements or herbal supplements. A complete listing of prescription drugs and their interaction with herbal remedies can be found on WebMD. Some examples of these dangerous combinations include the following.

Ephedra and Ginseng may increase the effects of stimulants.

Garlic and Ginkgo may enhance anticoagulant and antiplatlet drugs.

Grapefruit juice can be dangerous when combined with blood pressure medication.

High fiber herbs such as fennel seed, may bind to drugs delaying absorption of prescription medications.

St. John’s Wort may enhance the effects of narcotics and antidepressants, and enhance the effects of alcohol.

Siberian ginseng can enhance antibiotics.

The FDA on Supplements

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve supplement claims, they merely attempt to regulate them. A nutritional supplement can not make a disease claim but can make a structure/function claim. This means that a supplement can make a claim of “muscle enhancement” but not “cures arthritis.” All nutritional supplements currently on the market are not FDA approved. They do not have to submit to the FDA’s proof of claims, side affect disclosure, and long-term health impact studies. A searchable database for side-effects of supplements can be found on the FDA's Nutritional Supplement Adverse Reaction web site.

The bottom line is that doctors and herbalists do NOT know all of the side-effects of their prescriptions. Please fully investigate the known and possible side-effects of any substance that you choose to ingest. Sources such as “muscle magazines” and internet chat rooms are not reliable sources. These recommendations are made on anecdotal evidence only, NOT scientific evaluation of the side-effects and effectiveness of a chemical. The best nutrition is found in whole foods, not a pill.

Information About Protein Powder and Supplements,

Information about protein powder and supplements

Protein shakes are in my opinion probably the most important supplement there is, and it is basically the only supplement that I use and will ever use. First off, unless you are taking something crazy like 800 grams of it a day or more, it is completely safe. No side effects or anything. Why do I use it and why is it so important? Well, because protein is the most important part of your diet, whether your goals are to increase muscle and get bigger and stronger, or lose weight and lose fat and get/stay lean. Protein is the building block of muscle, and without enough of it, your body won't build muscle.

So the obvious thing to be thinking now is, "why do I need protein shakes, can't I just get enough of it from regular foods?" The answer to that question is yes! But the problem here is, since we all know that for best results we should try to eat at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, it gets VERY hard to eat so much regular food every day. Not many people have time to make chicken breasts all day long, which is where protein shakes come in. They take just a minute or 2 to prepare, just scoop out the powder, put it in a cup, pour in a liquid of some kind (anything from water, to milk, to fruit juice), and mix it with a spoon for about 20 seconds, and drink. Each scoop usually has about 17.5 grams of protein (with basically zero fat and zero carbs) and is WAY more convenient then eating a regular food.

Of course, you should try to get most of your daily protein from regular foods, however, there are a few times of the day where protein shakes would be better then eating a regular food. One of these times is first thing in the morning. Your body has not eaten for the last 8 or so hours while you were sleeping, so a whey protein shake (which is the fastest digesting protein there is) would be the perfect thing to give your body. The same goes for directly after your workout. This is probably the most important time to have a shake. Since you just worked out, your muscles need to rebuild and repair themselves, and this is the most important time to give your body protein, so a shake right now would be a great idea.

I use Designer Protein Powder for my protein shakes. Why? Well, you must first make sure that the brand you buy is top quality, because there are tons of low quality powders around. Designer is one of, if not the best quality powder there is. They are the #1 selling powder in America (or at least it says that on the bottle). The next thing you have to look at when buying a protein powder is its taste. Trust me, no matter what brand you buy, none taste great. So, you just have to buy the one that tastes "best" and Designer is one of the best tasting powders there is. It won a whole bunch of taste test awards and all that junk, but take it first hand from me, of all the powders and protein shakes I've tried, this is the best tasting one. It comes in a whole bunch of flavors, Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry (and more). I personally use and like the Strawberry the best.

Now comes price. A bottle of Designer Protein Powder is sold for $30.00 at your local GNC, which is where I used to buy it until I found a web site that sells it cheaper. So, I'd suggest buying all of your protein shakes, bars, powder and supplements online at this web site for the lowest price I've seen it for, which is $15.95.

Ram Setu a natural structure, claim experts

‘Adams Bridge One-Lakh-Year-Old’

Whatever the Centre’s affidavit may say about the existence of Lord Ram, marine experts are unamious that opposing the waste of time. The Ram Setu, according to them, is a natural marine structure over one-lakh-year-olf and not man-made (during Ramayan era) as is made out to be.

Moreover, experts also termed as baseless the fear that the removal of sediments of a small aea of this setu would increase the intensity of tsunami. “The long stretch of sea around the area is shallow which helps disintregate the energy of the killer wave,” they say.

“It is a natural occurrence of the continuity of sandstone sedimentation which stretches below Dhanushkoti and the isotopic dating indicates that the deposition is over one-lakh-year old,” said Prof. Victor Raja Mannikam, head of department, Disaster Management at Sastra University, Thanjavur. He has studied the site in depth and is considered to be an authority over Ram Setu.
Emphatically staiting that the structure, without doubt, is natural, Mannikam says that there is no way it could be associated with Ramayana as the epic dates back to around 5000 BC and this natural sedimentation is over one lakh years old.

Elaborating further, Dr Harshe Gupta, director, Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), says that the removal of sediments of a small area of this setu would not increase the intensity of tsunami as the shallowness of the sea in the area decreases the velocity of the wave, which otherwise travel at the rate of 700 km per hour in deep sea.
Similarity, N Dubey, associate professor at Makelle University, Ethiopia and an expert in marine sedimentary, says that structure of rocks is identical to what are found on the shores. It is possible that the floating stone, as mentioned in the epic, are colonies of coral which are still available in abundance around the area.

“In addition there is all possibility that the level of sea, because of phenomenon like global warming, has fluctuated and what is perceived in shallow water was once a part of the main land,” he adds.

For me, the society as describedin the epic, represents the metal age (5000-6000BC) and Rama has not constructed the structure as it belongs to Pleistocene Age which shows emergence of stone tools,” said Prof V S Sahay, HoD, anthropology, at Allahabad University.

It was in 1804 that James Rennell, the first surveyor general of the East India Company called Ram Setu as Adams Bridge. Now, in order to reduce the steaming distances between the east and west coast of India and to improve the navigation within territorial waters of India, a navigation within channel connecting the Gulf of Manner and Palk Bay through Adam’s Bridge has been envisaged so that the ships moving between the east and west coasts of India need not go around Sri Lanka. The total cost of the project is Rs 2,427 crore.

Ram Myth Or History

Did Ram exist?

Its a question that has pitted historians against believers time and again. While historians cite lack of evidence to say Ram was a mythical personality, those who believe otherwise claim that significant evidence exists to confirm that Ram was a mythical personality, those who believe otherwise claim that significant evidence exists to confirm that Ram existed in flesh in blood. So, where does the truth lie?

According to R P Tripathi, professor of ancient history at Allahabad University, History requires concrete evidence in the form of coins, inscriptions, etc to prove the existence of a character. Even if we take into account places mentioned in the Ramayana like Chitrakoot, Ayoudya, which still exist, the fact is that Ramayana is not a historical text. So, from that perspective, there is no historical evidence available of Ram. Having said that, we still cannot negate Rama presence easily, since he has been a part of our collective consciousness for a long time.

In fact, it is a precisely of this, that we cannot look at Ram obejectivaly, since he has made the transition from being simply a character in an epic to a religious figure, Council of Historical Reserch. “In mythology, there are many characters who have been similarily mentioned. Does that mean that they all existed? he asks.

So, are all mythical texts just that----only myth? Or, is there, somewhere, a grain of truth in them? Myths have to be carefully interpreted to find that grain of truth. In Ramayana case, there is no evidence to prove that it is anything else except a myth. There is also no evidence----either historical or archaeological---which proves that Ram ever existed ot that he ruled Ayodhya, claims Settar.

However; there are some who beg to differ: If archaeology cannot prove whether a temple existed at Ayoudya or a mosque just 500 years ago, what help can it render in establishing historical events more than 7,000 years ago? asks Pushkar Bhatanagar, author of the book, Dating The Era Of Lord Ram. The time has come to deliberate whether it is reasonable to be confined to only these kind of evidences for the purpose of proving the antiquity of an event and construct history. If the masons of those times failed to construct buildings which could survive seven millennia, an inference should not be drawn that the country had no inhabitants at that time or that Ram is a myth, he adds.

However, history requires substantial evidence that can satisfy all academics, says R S Bidht, former Jt DG of the Archaeological Survey of India, Historical evidence has been found about such personalities as Ashoka, who left behind edicts. Unless similer evidence is found about personalities like Ram, it will be difficult to prove their existence, he says.
Will such evidence ever be found, considering that the cities of the time have been built several times over? Nobody knows. For the time being, however, Ram remains a myth, at least in the eyes of history.

10 Tricks For Microsoft Outlook

1.Save a few keystrokes when entering dates

When entering the start and due dates for a new task, you don't have to type the entire date. If a date is in the current month, just enter the day and Outlook will enter the rest of the date for you. For instance, if the current month is March and you enter 14, Outlook assumes you mean March 14 of the current year and fills in that date.When a date isn't in the current month, you can still save a few keystrokes by entering the month and day. Outlook will fill in the year as follows:If the month and day haven't occurred in the current year, Outlook uses the current year.If the month and day have passed, Outlook uses the next year.

2.Control how you print notes

If you use the Notes feature to jot down questions, ideas, or quick reminders, you might also want to print them occasionally. By default, Outlook prints each note on a separate page, which might or might not be what you want. You can force Outlook to fill each page, to save paper or to keep related notes together. Select the notes you want to print and then choose Print from the File menu. In the resulting Print dialog box, deselect the Start Each Item On A New Page check box in the Print Options and click OK.If the option is disabled, you're using HTML format. You must switch to plain or text format to enable this option. To do so, choose Options from the Tools menu. Click on the Mail Format tab and choose Plain Text from the Compose In This Message Format option's drop-down list. Then, click Apply and OK. Repeat the print instructions, and you'll find the Start Each Item On A New Page option is enabled. After printing the notes, just retrace your steps to reset your format setting .

3.Print e-mail when it arrives

For a variety of reasons, some of us end up printing e-mail messages. If you print most of your messages, or all of your messages from a specific source, opening each message to print it manually interrupts your work. Setting a rule to print the desired incoming mail might be more efficient. To do so:1. From the Tools menu, choose Rules And Alerts.2. Click New Rule on the E-mail Rules tab.3. Click Start From A Blank Rule at the top of the resulting Rules Wizard dialog box.4. In the Step 1 box, highlight the Check Messages When They Arrive option (it should be the default) and then click Next.5. In the Step 1 box, select the Where My Name Is In The To Box check box (or whatever option applies, if you don't want to print all you messages) and click Next.6. In the Step 1 box, click the Print It option and click Next.At this point, you can identify exceptions to the rule, but we won't do that here. Just click Next, and then Finish, Apply, and OK to return to Outlook. After setting up the new print rule, Outlook will print every incoming message that meets your requirements. Now, the chances are that you won't want to print every message. So make good use of the conditions offered in steps 5 and 7 to limit the messages Outlook prints.

4.Store sent mail efficiently

When you reply to an e-mail, Outlook stores a copy of that message in the Sent folder. If you're like me, your Sent folder has thousands of messages. If you need to find a specific message later, you must sort through all those messages, and that takes time. Instead, store your replies with the original message. For instance, suppose you automatically route all your messages from your boss into a folder named, appropriately enough, My Boss. If you want Outlook to store your replies in My Boss with the original messages, do the following:1. From the Tools menu, choose Options.2. On the Preferences tab (which should be selected by default), click E-mail Options in the E-mail section.3. Click Advanced E-mail Options at the bottom of the Message Handling section.4. In the Save Messages section, select the In Folders Other Than The Inbox, Save Replies With The Original Message check box and then click OK three times to return to Outlook.Outlook will apply this setting to all of your personal folders. Just remember that Outlook saves replies with the original message and not in the Sent folder only when the original message is in a folder other than the Inbox. Outlook continues to save all replies sent from messages in the Inbox in the Sent folder.

5.Create a Flags toolbar

Quick Flags help you categorize your messages, usually by some level of importance or by task. For instance, you might use a red flag to mark messages that need a quick response and a blue flag to mark messages on which you've acted and are waiting for a response.The problem with Quick Flags is that there's no way to customize their descriptions. Outlook identifies them only by color. You can't change the name of Red Flag to Critical. Remembering what each color represents can become burdensome.1. An easy way to remember what each flag represents is to create a custom toolbar that displays each flag with text that means something to you. Fortunately, the process is easy:2. From the Tools menu, choose Customize.3. On the Toolbars tab, click New and name the new toolbar appropriately (for instance, you might name it "Flags") and click OK.4. In the Customize dialog box, click the Commands tab.5. Select Actions from the Categories list box.6. Next, drag the appropriate flag color buttons from the Commands list to the custom toolbar. (If you can't find the toolbar, look behind the dialog box.)7. After adding all the flags you want, change the text for each flag button. Right-click a flag button and replace the Name setting, e.g., &Red Flag, with something more helpful, such as "Critical." Select the Image And Text option so that Outlook will display the button's name on the toolbar.8. Complete steps 6 and 7 for each flag button in your new toolbar.

6.Modify the scope of your Calendar work week

By default, the Work Week calendar view displays the five days of the traditional business week, Monday through Friday. To include Saturday and Sunday in that view, choose Options from the Tools menu. In the resulting Options dialog box, click Calendar Options in the Calendar section. In the Calendar Options dialog box, check Sat and Sun in the Calendar Work Week section. Then, click OK twice to return to the Calendar.You don't have to view a seven- or traditional five-day work week. Check the days of the week that apply to you for a custom work week view. For example, if you work Wednesday through Sunday, you can make those selections to build a view that reflects your schedule.

7.Use color to identify messages from specific senders

Expecting important mail? Identify it as soon as it comes in by displaying it in a distinctive color. Start by select an existing message from the sender in question, if you have one. If you don't, that's okay; you can enter the sender's name manually. Now follow these steps:1. In Mail, choose Organize from the Tools menu.2. In the Ways To Organize Mail pane, click the Colors link on the left side.3. In the first condition statement (we won't use the second), choose From in the first drop-down list.4. If you chose a message before starting, the sender's name will appear in the text box to the right. If it's the wrong name, enter the right name or the person's e-mail address.5. Choose a color from the second drop-down list.6. Click Apply Color and close the pane.Afterward, Outlook will display all messages, existing and new, from the person you specified in step 4 in the color you selected in step 5.

8.Distinguish incoming mail from existing mail

By default, Outlook displays incoming mail as bold text until you read it. If you need a bit more help, consider displaying unread mail in a bright color. To do so, you'll work in a view, not a rule:1. In Mail, choose Inbox.2. Choose Arrange By from the View menu.3. Select Current View and then Define View from the subsequent sub menus.4. In the Custom View Organizer dialog box, check the option and click Modify.5. Click Automatic Formatting.6. In the Automatic Formatting dialog box, click Font.7. In the Font dialog box, choose a color from the Color drop down list, and click OK three times. Then, click Apply View.Outlook will display all unread mail in the Inbox in the color you choose in step 7. Doing so won't display unread messages automatically routed to other folders. Since this is a view, it works only on the current folder. However, you can set up a similar view for any folder you like. In addition, the unread mail formatting takes precedent over colors used to identify mail from a specific sender.

9.Force replies to reach multiple recipients

A problem arises when you need recipients to reply to everyone receiving a message. The responding recipient must remember to click Reply All instead of Reply. If the recipient forgets to click Reply All, you're the only one who will see the reply, forcing you to forward it to everyone else, which is inefficient. Before you send the message, you can configure it to reply to everyone:When composing the message, click the Options button on the Formatting toolbar.1. Choose Options from the resulting drop-down list.2. In the Message Options dialog box, check the Have Replies Sent To option in the Delivery Options section, which will automatically enter your e-mail address.3. Next, click the Select Names button to the right and select all the appropriate recipients.4. Click Close to return to your message.5. When any recipient responds to the message, regardless of which reply choice they click, the reply will go to everyone you specified in the Have Replies Sent To option.

10.Create a temporary work week in the Calendar

The Work Week calendar view displays a week view, and you define what constitutes a work week (see Tip #6). If you need to see more or less than the usual work week, you can temporarily change that view. In the Date Navigation pane, click the first date you want to view. Then, hold down the [Shift] key and press the last date in the period. Outlook automatically adjusts the Calendar Work Week to include all of the dates in the selected time period. Alternately, you can view a group of non contiguous dates by holding down [Ctrl] instead of [Shift] as you click dates. Outlook will display the days in order, regardless of how you select them.

Beautiful Lips

Pictures have become famous for it, songs have been written about it, and commercials on TV tell how to get it. Your smile can make a big difference in your appearance. A pleasant disposition with a pleasing continence can make up for any number of beauty flaws. But you mustn't stop there. A big smile can make you look positively beautiful.

Your smile has two components: teeth and lips. The biggest improvement you can make to your appearance is making sure your teeth are white. This has never been easier than it is today. Tooth color is genetic. Some people are just born with yellow tinted teeth. By avoiding certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, red wine, and tea, you can keep teeth whiter. Any foods that stain your clothes will stain your teeth. If your teeth have become discolored, you will be surprised at the results of teeth whitening. The procedure can be undertaken at home or at your dentist's office. The home products are reasonably priced, but require some discipline for about three weeks to apply the whitener, to avoid eating after it is on, and to remove it in the morning. Dentists can perform various teeth whitening procedures that usually cost about $500 and are not covered by insurance, but produce quick results in a visit or two.

Lips should look inviting and kissable. Take good care of them by making sure there is no dead skin on them, and regularly maintain them with vitamin E or balm to make them look polished and soft.·
Matte lipstick is strong on color without shine but can be drying and look dull. If you like the matte look, get a good expensive lipstick. This is one time where cheap isn't better.·
Crème – nice color without shininess and more moisturizing than matte·
Glossy – the least drying
Lip shape tricks:· Lips too full? Avoid strong colors or you'll look like Ronald McDonald. Tone down the color with soft sheer hues and no lip liner. Also, play up your eyes to draw away from or balance out your full lips.·
Lips too thin? Strong colors will just emphasize their thinness. Instead, use light, sheer colors. Never use lip liner outside the natural lip line to try and fake bigger lips. You'll just end up looking like a clown.·
Crooked lips? Gently use your lip liner to even them out.
Lip color depends on your skin tone as well as your clothing colors:·
Best lip colors for fair skin: pales·
Best lip colors for medium skin: deeper colors·
Best lip colors for olive and yellow skin: browns and plums·
Best lip colors for dark skin: dark red, beiges and berry colors

Why Woman Cry?

Why Women Cry

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?""Because I'm a woman," she told him.
"I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will.
"Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?
""All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"
God said:
"When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,
yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children. I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry he! r husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.
""You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

SMS Backup on your Yahoo mailbox

Yahoo India has now a new feature to help you create a backup of your important SMSes. To avail the SMS Backup service, all you need is a Yahoo email id. Though the registration is free, this Value Adding Service(VAS) charges rates based on your network provider.

HOW IT WORKS:You specify the mobile phone number corresponding to your Yahoo email id (you may also have more than one mobile number for an email id). After verification of the number, you can start using the service. To backup the message, you need to forward the SMS message to 82438243. The message gets stored on your SMS Backup folder of your mail inbox, which you can always check online.

TO NOTE:Yahoo has only recently launched this, and hence a few of the desired features are still missing.

For example, you may not yet start forward MMS and picture messages. Also, messages saved in the mailbox cannot be downloaded back on your mobile phone. Thirdly, information regarding the sender cannot be saved, as the mail is forwarded from your number only.

What Is Love?

This question of ten occurs to me.
Is it a feeling. Am emotion.
Or just a tendency?
Love surely deals with the matters of the heart.
But the mind, too, plays an important part.
Love has no limit, nor has it any bound.
Those knowing love, know the soul`s profound.
Love is not just an ordinary feeling.
Once you find it, it`s vital for your being.
Love brings along joy, and also little pain.
It has a few losses but lots of gain.
Love has no causes, nor valid reasons.
Nor does it change like any of the seasons.
Love involves emotion, it needs understanding.
It is not the outcome of any preplanning.
The true meaning of love
Is not as simple as it`s definition,
Neither are words enough to give its explanation.
To know what is love, it needs to be felt.
That`s how I`ve known
Why love is simply, the best…


‘Assalomo Alaykum Wa RahmatulahiWa Barakatuhu’. May Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah (SWT)… Almighty God, be on all of you.
The topic of this morning’s debate is… ‘Is Non-Vegetarian food permitted or prohibited for a human being?’
It is not… ‘Whether Vegetarian food or Non-Vegetarian food - which is healthy or which is better?’ If I prove that ‘an Apple’ is better than ‘a Mango’… that does not mean ‘Mango’, is prohibited. This statement is sufficient to end the dialogue for me, but I have to reply. Non-Vegetarian, by definition means - ‘A person who has food of animal origin’. It does not mean… ‘A person who does not have Vegetarian food… it does not mean, a person who does not have vegetable and fruits.’ Let it be very clear to all of you. A more technical and a scientific word is, ‘an Omnivorous diet’.
A person who has many types of food, especially foods of plant and animal origin. ‘Vegetarian’, as Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri rightly said, it does not come from the word ‘Vegetables’- it comes from ‘Vegetas’ which means…‘ full of breath, full of life’ - he did not give a better explanation. We can talk about it - and he did not speak… there are various types of ‘Vegetarians’. We have ‘Fructorians’, who only eat fruits and nuts - then we have the ‘Vedanta’, who do not have any animal products - we have ‘Lacto Vegetarian’, what I believe Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri is… they have milk, we have the ‘Ovo Vegetarians’ who have eggs - We have the ‘Lacto-Ovo Vegetarians’, who have egg and milk also - We have the ‘Pesco Vegetarians’ who eat fish. We have ‘Semi Vegetarians’ who also have Chicken.
This classification is done by the Vegetarian Society… not by me - And you can name another 20, time does not permit me. I would like to state a quotation by Dr. William T. Jarves. Dr. William T. Jarves, he is the advisor to the ‘American Council of Science and Health’ ‘ACSH’, and he is also the ‘Professor of Public Health and Preventive Medicine’ in the Lomalinda University, and he is also the founder and the President of the ‘National Council Against Health Frauds’, and he is the co-editor of the book ‘The Health Robbers - a closer look at Ouakery in America’ - Most of the quotations he gives… from America. And according to him, he classifies ‘Vegetarian’ based on the behavior’s stand point, into two categories… ‘Pragmatic Vegetarian’ and ‘Ideological Vegetarian’. ‘A Pragmatic Vegetarian’ chooses his diet on objective health reasons - He is more reasonable in his approach, rather than emotional.
‘The Ideological Vegetarian’ on a other hand, he chooses his diet based on a principle, which is based on ideology - he is more emotional, rather than reasonable. And Dr. William T. Jarves says… ‘One can spot an Ideological Vegetarian, by his exaggeration of the benefits of Vegetarianism, and you could see that in the talk which preceded my talk… exaggeration of benefits of Vegetarianism. And the lack of skepticism, and the over looking of the fact that extreme Vegetarianism, can lead to potential health risk’. He says that…‘The ideological Vegetarian… he pretends to be like a scientist, but he is more like a lawyer, than like scientist’ - and you could see that in the talk by the learned speaker, more like a lawyer than like a scientist.
They gather data information selectively, against the information which is against the ideology. This may be good for a debate like the one we are having, but not for engendering… scientific understanding. Dr. William T. Jarves says that... ‘Ideological Vegetarianism’ is filled with hypothesis - It is filled with extremism, from which even scientists and doctors are not immune’. And that you can see the quotation - Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri has said, several diseases, and it is possible for me to refute each and every… but if time permits. Talking about science…
But the approach was not scientific. All can be prevented very well - ‘Prevention is better than cure’… is the base of the medicine - which time will not permit me to go into health, and etc. In the rebuttal, if time permits I will try and cover most of the other aspects - and ‘Health’… I will try and cover in the rebuttal. Let us analyze the various reasons, why a person chooses a food habit. It can be Religious, it can be Geographical location, it can be a personal choice, smell, taste, colour’. Due to humane or ethical consideration, due to anatomical and physiological consideration, due to behavioral consideration, it can be due to ecological and economical consideration, it can be due to nutritional value or due to health and scientific reasons… health and medical reasons. Let us first analyze the Religious reasons - Mr. Trivedi said that… ‘Religion should not interfere with the human being… where it is concerned, what we should, and what we should not eat - That we should leave it up to the doctor’. I agree with him that most of the Religions, that is in the case. The Religious authority, the main foundation… that is Almighty God, if He is not a doctor, the God that you worship is not a doctor, then you should not follow him - He says… ‘Leave it to the doctor’. But in Islam, we believe… Allah (SWT), Almighty God, is our Creator - and the Creator of the human beings has far Superior knowledge, than all the doctors put together, in all the years. And you can find the statement, as Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri said… ‘All from doctors’ - he is quoting from these books, which I think is available for sale outside… all these books. I will touch on some of these points, all out of which many are fictitious… fictitious, do not exist at all - Some are irrelevant, some are untested and some are truth… which are half-baked. I would like to make one point crystal clear, that while I prove undoubtedly, that Non-Veg. food should be permitted for the human beings, I do not have the slightest intention to hurt the feelings of any Vegetarian.
And while I prove logically and scientifically that Non-Veg. food is permitted, and if someone feels hurt, his sentiments are hurt… I apologize in advance… I sincerely apologize. My intention is not to hurt anybody’s feelings, but I have to reply to the presentation, to the earlier speaker. As far as Islam is concerned, it is not compulsory for a human being to have Non-Veg. - a Muslim can be a very good Muslim, even by being a pure Vegetarian. But… but when our Creator… Almighty God… Allah (SWT), gives us permission to have Non-Veg., why should we not have it? And I started my talk by giving a quotation from the Glorious Qur’an, from Surah Maidah, Ch. No. 5, Verse No. 1, which says… (Arabic )…. ‘Fulfill all your obligations and lawful for you for food are. All four footed animals with the exceptions named’. Qur’an further says in Surah Nahl, Ch. No. 16, V. No. 5… ‘that cattle has been created by God, for you - in it are various benefits…. - You derive warmth, and of their meat you can eat’. The same message is repeated in Surah Mominun, Ch. 23, V. No. 21… ‘that you can have the meat of the cattle’. Let us analyze the geographical reasons and the surrounding environment… and as we know, it influences is the person’s food habit - like people living in the coastal region … the Kookiness, they have more fish - People living in South India, they have more Rice - People living in the desert, where there is scarcity of vegetation, and people mainly survive on the flesh of animals. The Eskimo in the Arctic region, where there is scarcity of edible vegetation, they survive more on sea food. And Mr. Zaveri said that…‘he knows that vegetable is not available in certain parts of the world, but today, due to advancement of transportation, we can supply them with vegetables’. I would request the Indian Vegetarian Congress to supply, at least give the transportation cost… that is all… to supply to the Eskimos, to supply to Saudi Arabia. You get vegetables in Saudi Arabia, it is more expensive… Why? … because the cost of transportation - that makes if more expensive. It is illogical and unscientific to spend more money, to buy a food which is less nutritious. Let us analyze the ‘Humane reason’, the ‘Ethical reasons’ - And the pure Vegetarians, they say that… ‘All life is sacred - and no living creature should be killed’.
They fail to realize that today, it is a universal fact, that even plants have got life - So the main argument on killing living creature, does not hold good today. Previously may be… a couple of centuries ago, it may have held some weight, but today it carries no weight. Then they further argue today, and they say… ‘Yes we know that plants have got life, but they cannot feel pain… therefore killing a plant, is a lesser crime and lesser sin, as compared to killing an animal’. Today, science has further advanced, and we have come to know that even the plants can feel pain, they can even cry - But the cry of the plant cannot be heard by the human ear, because the audible frequency range of the human ear, is from 20 cycles per second, to 20,000 cycles per second - Anything below and above this, the human ear cannot hear.
But the cry of the animal can be heard by the human being - but the cry of the plant cannot be heard by the human being - Just because you cannot hear the cry of the plant, that does not justify you to inflict pain or kill the plant. There was an ideological Vegetarian, who had a discussion with me, and he told me that… ‘Brother Zakir, I know the plants have life, they feel pain… but you know plants… they have got about two senses less, as compared to the animals’. I said… ‘For the sake of argument I agree with you’. But then I asked him a simple question, that… ‘Suppose your brother is born deaf and dumb - cannot hear, cannot speak - two senses less - and when he grows up, and when someone comes and murders him - will you go and tell the Judge…‘ O my Lord give the murderer a less punishment, because my brother had two senses less’. In fact he will say… ‘Usne to Masoom ko mara hai’… ‘He has killed an innocent person - give him a bigger punishment’. And further if you analyze that in Islam, as far as living creatures are concerned - they are two types… broadly classified in two types - ‘Human beings who are living creatures’- and Non-human being living creatures. As far as killing the human beings are concerned, Qur’an says in Surah Maidah, Ch. No. 5, Verse No. 32 that… ‘If any person - if any one kills any human being, unless if be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity and if any saves an human being, it is as though he has saved thewhole nation’.
If any person kills any human being… Muslim or Non-Muslim, unless if it be for murder or for creating mischief, Qur’an says… ‘He has killed whole of humanity - if you save any human being, you have saved the whole of humanity’. As far as non-human being living creatures are concerned, no human being should harm them unnecessarily… should not kill them unnecessarily… for sports, or for fun, or for target practice - but if it is for you security and for your safety, you can stop them, you can even kill them - or if you want for lawful food, but not just for fun and frolic, or for hunting. Even if I agree that the plants are a lesser species, as compared to the human beings - if you take the life of one animal… an average animal, it can feed about hundred human beings. For this same hundred human beings, you may have to kill more than hundred plants. So is it preferable to take the life of one living animal, or the life of 100 living plants?… Which is a bigger sin? …Is it a bigger sin to kill human beings who are handicapped, or kill one healthy human being… which is a bigger sin? - You decide for yourself. There is a Vegetarian Society by the name of ‘World Foundation on Reverence for all Life’… Most of the quotations which he gave, is from here and from these three books… most of them … all most all. The name of the foundation is ‘World Foundation as Reverence for all Life’- they forgot to mention… (except plant life) in bracket. And it says… ‘All creation is one family… All life is sacred’. What kind of an ideology is this, that you permit the killing of one family member, but do not permit the killing of the another family member? - It is illogical and unscientific.
You know in America, there are Vegetarian societies who take students to slaughter houses, and they make them see the blood shed and convert them to Vegetarianism. It is like a doctor taking the young girls to observe and watch a difficult childbirth, and then say that… ‘Is the reason you should not marry, and you should not have children’. These are unethical forms of mind control - unethical…unethical. In fact we should teach our children that… ‘When vegetables can be grown for food, why cannot animals be raised for food?’ All life is sacred… I agree… Unnecessarily killing them is wrong - But for your requirement, lawful food is permitted. Let us analyze the anatomical and the behavioral consideration, and there were a list of various things mentioned by Mr. Zaveri - you know he was reading from paper at 100 miles per hour, I was trying to note down, note down, note down how many diseases… diseases I being an medical doctor can answer… but how much can I answer? To name ten diseases, will taken few seconds - To reply all ten will take more then an hour - And he had listed a lot. I will just try and tell you, that if you go to authentic books… authentic books - not researches made by Ideological Vegetarians… most of the answers are given on the medical aspect. Considering the anatomical and the physiological aspect… and he had rightly said, that… ‘If you observe the teeth of the Herbivorous animals the Cow, the Goat, the Sheep, they have a flat set of teeth… they only have vegetables. If you observe the teeth of the Carnivorous animals Lion, Tiger, Leopard, they hare pointed set of teeth… they only have animal flesh - Not Non-Veg. Animal flesh’ - They are not called as Non-Veg. animals, they are called as Carnivorous animals. There is a difference between ‘Carnivorous’ and ‘Non-Veg.’ - Non-Veg. actually is, ‘Omnivorous.’ But if you analyze the set of teeth of the human being, have got flat teeth, as well as pointed teeth. If Almighty God… our Creator, wanted us to have only vegetables, why did He give us these pointed teeth - for what? And Mr. Zaveri said… ‘These pointed teeth, they are not referring to the Dog - they refer to the Apes’. He does not know the scientific meaning of the word - ‘Canine’ comes from the root word ‘Cananas’, in Latin, which means ‘of Dog’ - and ‘Canine’ means pertaining to the family of Canada, like Wolves, Dogs, etc. - Scientists have given this name… ‘Canine’, meaning ‘pertaining to Dog’. And he said… ‘It does not look like the teeth of Dog - it refers to teeth of Apes and Monkeys’. I believe in agreeing with the argument and proving the point, than to disprove him - It is easy. Even if I agree… ‘It is the teeth like the Monkeys’… do you know Monkeys also have Non-Veg.? they have the Lice! - There are many species of Apes, who even have raw flesh of animals. Many species of Apes who have raw flesh… they are Omnivorous - Who says they are Carnivorous?… they are Omnivorous… they are not pure Veg. also. And many species are even called as ‘Cannibals’ - Some species of Apes and Monkeys. If you analyze the digestive system of the human being, it can digest both Veg. as well as Non-Veg. If Almighty God wanted us to have only vegetables, why did He give us the digestion system, which can digest both, Veg. as well as Non-Veg. And Mr. Zaveri said that we cannot have raw flesh - I agree with him… most human beings cannot have raw flesh. In the same way, most of the human beings cannot have raw vegetables, raw vegetarian diet, like raw Wheat, raw Rice… Can you have it? … raw Moong, raw Drumstick … Can you have? … You will get indigestion. So what is the argument? - No… no, you have to cook them.
I know as a medical doctor, that raw Wheat, raw Rice, raw Drumstick if you have… you will have problem, you cannot digest them - So you have to cook them. Similarly with the flesh, we Non-Vegetarians, we cook them for easy digestion. But yet there are certain human beings, who even have raw meat. He gave the name of ‘Eskimo’… he did not tell the root word meaning - The root word meaning of ‘Eskimo’, it literally means ‘Eaters of raw flesh’. So there are human beings who even have raw meat… they are conditioned - Tomorrow if you are conditioned to eat raw Wheat and raw Rice, even you may be able to digest it. But most human beings cannot digest certain raw vegetables - That does not mean you should not have Rice, you should have Wheat, that you should not have Drumsticks. There are in the Herbivorous animals, an enzyme known as ‘Cellulaze Enzyme’ and every vegetable has ‘Cellulaze’ - and this Cellulaze enzyme, helps in digesting the vegetables. We human beings, we do not have ‘Cellulaze enzymes’… therefore the vegetables we eat, the cellulose part remains undigested and you call them as ‘Fibres’ - It is undigested. On the other hand, there are certain enzymes like Lipase, Trapezes, Kino Trapezes, which are mainly meant for digesting Non-Vegetarian food. If Almighty God, did not want us to have Non-Veg. food, why did He give all these enzymes? And the primitive man, as said by the earlier speaker as well as the chief guest… Archeological evidence shows us clearly… the Homo Sapiens, the Eskimos, the Austo Aborigines, they were Non-Veg. So why the change now?… We have the same teeth, we have the same digestive system. And he has given a list of other comparison, which prove we can have Veg…. and I agree with that - where did I ever say, that you cannot have Veg.? A Non-Veg., is a person who has the food of the animal products, as well as Vegetarian food - it is an Omnivorous diet. He said that the liver and the kidney in Carnivorous animals is large. In the human beings it is small like the Herbivorous, because the animals have raw meat… therefore they have to remove the toxins on a higher level - we do it by cooking the food. Therefore, God gave us a small kidney, and a small liver, which is sufficient to digest both, cooked Non-Veg. and also vegetables. Similarly with all the arguments… HCL… It is not very acidic… Why? - Because we do not require it. If you do not require it, why should God unnecessarily give to us? Same with saliva, same with the Ph of the blood, same with the Lipo-protein… all the arguments are, that because they have raw flesh, therefore they required it - We do not require it so why should God give us? Yes! It is required for digesting Veg. food, and cooked Non-Veg. food. He said… ‘Carnivorous, they lick, and the Herbivorous animal they sip’. We human beings, we do both… we do both - When we drink… while we drink, we sip - When we have ice cream what we do?… we lick. We lick also, and we sip also… depending upon what is the food we are eating. Even the tea we can lick… not that we cannot lick… but why to waste time? - It will take more time. Similar by with all the arguments he has given about… ‘the teeth being close’ because we also have vegetables.
If God would have asked us not to have vegetables, then may be our teeth would have been far apart - He asked us to have both Non-Veg. as well as Veg. food. And there are various verses in the Qur’an, talking about various foods, Pomegranates, talking about vegetables, talking about Dates, etc., which we should have. The plants - many Vegetarians say… ‘That they re grow, therefore we are not killing the plants’- and there are some plants which have that facility, not all plants - ‘There are various, which we cut, it re grows’… See this is the only argument, that because it re grows, you can have Veg. food. You know if you cut the tail of the Lizard, it re grows - Will you have the tail of the Lizard? - It is a delicacy. There are human beings… the ‘Australian Aborigines’… they relish the Lizard - Will you have the tail of the Lizard? - And the answer will be… ‘ No.’ You know what I am doing now? I am behaving like a lawyer. I am feeling ashamed to answer all these things, but I have to do because it is also a debate. I had come here, so that we understand better, and have a friendly understanding of each other, but I have to behave like a lawyer also, besides being logical and scientific, because of the argument put forth. Any one who has general knowledge can reply... but because people do not have general knowledge - Many people are not aware… that is why these arguments may satisfy many people. And all these arguments are given in the books which are distributed… ‘Meat eating, 100 facts’ by Nemichand, distributed by Jain organization - also by the Indian Vegetarian Congress. These are the books given to me by Mr. Zaveri… ‘100 facts about Egg’, ‘Vegetarian or Non-Vegetarian’… Each and every argument, each and every argument can be disproved - Certain things I know… that Non-Veg causes diseases, which can be prevented. Let us analyze the ‘Behavioral consideration’ - He gave certain arguments… ‘The food we eat, has an effect on our behavior’- I agree with him to a certain level. The food we eat, has an effect on our behavior - That is the reason, we Muslims have flesh of Herbivorous animals like Goat, Sheep, who are docile and peace loving - We want to be peace loving and docile. We do not have the meat of the Carnivorous animals like Lion, Tiger, Dog, Pig, etc. - and the Prophet clearly says, all these animals are prohibited. We are peace loving people, therefore we want to have animals which are peaceful. And countering your argument… ‘You all eat plants, and you all behave like plants’… that is, suppression of the senses… a lower species - I know scientifically it is wrong… I am only behaving like a lawyer - I feel ashamed to speak these points, as a medical doctor. It is not true, that if you eat plants, you behave like plants - But the argument he has put forth… I am giving a counter reply … ‘You eat plants and behave like plants, weak and suppressed - cannot move properly’. I am sorry, I really apologize… I apologize - I have to reply to the arguments - I apologize if I have hurt the feeling of any Vegetarian. It is not scientifically true - It is just an argument… A counter argument.
Further, he gave the list of various peace loving people like Mahatma Gandhi… and I respect Mahatma Gandhi, because he has done certain good things for India, and humanity. But if, because Mahatma Gandhi was peaceful, indicates, that if you have Veg.food, makes you peaceful… then today if you analyze the list of the Noble prize winners for peace, almost all, or most of them are Non.Vegetarians… Manekchang Began… Non-Veg., Yaseer Arafat… Non-Veg., Anwar Sadat… Non-Veg., Mother Teresa… Non-Veg.,… Mother Teresa. I want to ask you a simple question… ‘Which man in the history of human kind, is known maximum, for killing maximum human beings - Can you guess?’ Hitler… Adolf Hitler!… He has killed six million Jews - Was he a Non-Veg. or Veg.?… Vegetarian! Anyhow, there are crusaders of Vegetarians - you know… now in the internet if you go, they say… ‘See, Adolf Hitler was a Vegetarian… is a myth - He sometimes had Non-Veg.’. And the other side says that… ‘You know, when he had gastric problems, that time he had vegetable foods only’. To tell you frankly on a scientific viewpoint, I do not consider the diet of Hitler to be responsible for him killing six million Jews. Neither am I telling… irrespective whether he was a Vegetarian or Non-Vegetarian,
I am not interested in knowing, because I being a doctor, I know it does not carry any weight. There were other factors which influenced him to take this drastic step, which is totally inhuman, not the diet. There are various researches done - there have been researches in America on a group of students, who were ‘Pure Non-Veg.’ and on group of students who were ‘Veg. … Pure Veg.’ And they analyzed that the group of students who were ‘Non-Veg.’… they were less violent, and they were more social - But it is a research… It is not a scientific fact. I will never use this as an argument to prove that Non-Veg. food makes you peaceful… No… I am a doctor… more of a doctor, as well as lawyer where required… because I am in a debate. There are ‘Researches’- but these ‘Researches’… are not ‘Scientific Facts’. Most of the statements what Mr. Rashmi Zaveri made - all were ‘Researches’… not ‘Scientific Facts’. There is not a single authentic medical book which says that… ‘Non-Veg. food in general should be prohibited’ - Not a single. All these are Researches - like the research done by this person in America. Then they say that… ‘Veg. food makes a person intelligent’ - and he gave a list of great names… Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, etc., etc. If we analyze the list of the Noble Prize winners in all these years, majority were the Non-Veg. … Majority! And today ‘Animal Behavioral’ scientists - they say, that ‘the carnivorous animal, should be more intelligent than the herbivorous animal, in order to catch the prey - If he is not intelligent, how will he catch the prey?’ But anyway, I am not going to use this as an argument… ‘Therefore Non-Veg. food makes you intelligent’ - because these things do not actually effect a human being. The diet does effect human beings, but these are arguments… do not effect… these arguments do not effect - And all the other arguments given, they do not carry weight actually. There are people who give examples that… ‘Non-Veg. food makes you strong’ - is a myth. It is a scientific fact mentioned in every medical book… Authentic - That… ‘Non-Veg. food is good for health’. It does have diseases also…
You can prevent them - There are proteins, which I will come to it later on. And to counter argue that, they are giving example of, ‘Yadunath Singh Naik’ - Has any body heard of him? - ‘Yadunath Singh Naik’… in the army. It is mentioned in the book ‘Vegetarian or Non Vegetarian - Choose for yourself ’, by Gopinath Agarwal -Yadunath Naik being a Vegetarian in the army, in wrestling, he defeated two Non-Vegetarians - therefore Veg. food makes you strong. I feel ashamed to reply to this argument… I feel ashamed. It is a known fact that the title holders of world wrestling… Yes, there are Vegetarian wrestlers also… but if you compare with the full world, almost all the title holders of world wrestling, are Non-Veg. The person known in body building… maximum… Who is he? - Arnold Schwarzneger! Thirteen times world titles, he got - Seven as Mr. Olmpia, five as Mr. Universe, and one, as Mr. World. What was he?… Veg. or Non-Veg.? - Non-Veg.! The boxer Mohammed Ali… Cascius Clay… Non-Veg.! - Mike Tyson… Non-Veg.! Yes of course, Non-Veg. food does add to the strength… that is a scientific fact. That is the reason that if you analyze, that when a person is convalesing from a disease, it is preferable… Non-Veg. food - Not that you have to have Non-Veg., it is preferable… egg, etc.- I will come to it later on. And then they give an example of a wrestler… Professor Ram Murthy - Never heard his name. He says he is a world famous wrestler - Who has heard of him?. Any one has heard of him?… Prof. Ram Murthy? No one - World famous…
Where did he get this news from?… World famous. Then he gave the example of Paramjit Singh in London… pure Vegetarian, who skips 2000 times a day - therefore vegetarian food makes you an athlete. If these are the arguments… supposed to be scientific, I really feel ashamed. Most of the athletic record holders… here is the Guinness Book… you can go through it - I have brought it along here… all mentioned, about body building… body building, athletic, hundred metres dash. All these people, if at random also you check up their, dietetic history - Even giving benefit of doubt, more than 80 to 90 % will be Non-Veg. But I will be a fanatic, if I say that all these records are only due to the diets… I will be a fanatic - A few records may be related to the diet, but not all. Further argument that he gave, that… ‘The smell and the sight of a Carnivorous animal is strong, the night vision is strong’ - As Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri said… ‘Night vision and sense of smell is strong in Carnivorous… in Herbivorous, it is less… in human beings it is less, therefore we should be Vegetarian. There are Herbivorous animals like the ‘Bee’ whose sense of smell is very strong, and they even have a very good night vision. See, these arguments, which are not scientific, may be useful in a debate to convince the people illogically - Therefore I am here. Then he gave the example… ‘You know animals have hoarse voice… you know, coarse voice - the Carnivorous animals - Herbivorous animals do not have coarse voice.’ I want to ask you a simple question - Which animal is maximum known for a hoarse voice? - Donkey! Veg. or Non-Veg.? Veg. or Non-Veg.? Veg.! Anyway, by no means am I trying to prove that Vegetarian food creates hoarse voice, or Non-Vegetarian food creates melodious voice. If you see the list of singers, many are Non-Veg.… many are Veg. also. So just by quoting singers who are Vegetarian - ‘Oh! that is why Vegetarian diet makes you melodious’... is all illogical arguments - Really I feel ashamed to answer all these things. And he gave certain ‘Economic’ points… that is economic reason, why we should have Vegetarian food - It is more economical, according to Mr. Zaveri. And he gave several statistics - so many calories, so many this, so many tons of protein, which are mentioned here - From where they get this statistics, God alone knows. And he mentioned some protein… it is also mentioned in this book, that 1 kg. of animal protein that we get, we have to feed so many plants, etc., therefore it is equivalent to 7 kgs. of Veg. protein. So if you are having meat… for 1 kg. protein, you are taking 7 kg. vegetables - therefore vegetable is cheaper. How they get this kg. of proteins, - I being a medical doctor do not realize - Is it kg. of food, or kg. of protein? And if agree with him... I agree with him - you say for sake of argument, 2 + 2 is 5,.. I agree - and I ask you that you take 2 rupees... take 2 rupees, and give me 5 rupees - take 2000, take 2000, give me 5000. Similarly, If I agree it is right… all their statistics, then I tell, that the Vegetarians, they should thank the Non-Vegetarians. You know why?… because if we would not have slaughtered the animals for food, it would have lived for another five to ten years, and in that time it would have the vegetables of 7 to 8 peoples for a few years. So you should thank us for preventing the animals from eating your vegetable food. Further more, he gave the calculation from some record… from where I do not know, 1:14 the land that you graze, required for animal, is 14 times more than the land required for food, etc. Same example is given here, that the land required to produce one ton of beef - the same land you can feed 5 average families. One ton of beef is equivalent to 10 or 20 tons of Veg. food, and the land required to graze an animal, can raise 5 average families. My earlier argument also holds good here - But besides that, these ideological Vegetarians… they fail to realize that the animals graze on land which is unsuitable for growing crops. They eat the plants which is inedible for the human beings… like husk and stocks… corn stocks. They do not eat plants which are edible for the human being - Yes! they can eat… But when they enter the fields, the farmer, but natural, takes them out of the field - Why to cause loss? Yes, if we have excess of crop, etc., there are certain governments who even feed them. And there are Nomadic populations who make their living, by grazing animals on land which is unsuitable for crop growing - But they eat the vegetation which is inedible to the human being and they make their living - Even the animal lives, even the human being lives. And today according to U.N report, about 23% approximately, of the land in the world is used for pastures, 23% for forest, less than 10% for cultivation, the remaining 45% majority can yet be used for growing crops. Why don’t you use that?… Why you are running after the food of the animals?… Poor living creatures… let them live, let them eat - Why you are stopping them from eating? If the Non-Vegetarians stop slaughtering the cattle, do you know that, there will be over population of cattle… over population. I am aware that human beings… they raise animals for food - that means, by methods, they increase the multiplication of the animals. But if suppose I agree that from today, all Non-Vegetarians stop raising animals for food, and stop killing them for food, yet they will grow in population. You know why?… Human beings… in all these years our population is increasing, even with all the family planning method, with all the birth control… ‘Hum do Humare do’ - Yet we are increasing. There is no birth control method among the cattle, and their gestation is less than the human beings, 5 months to 6 months to 8 months - Less then the human beings and they multiply faster. So if we stop killing and stop raising… yet, within a few decades, we will have problems… not of over population of human beings - of over population of cattle - How you are going to solve it? There are various Nutrition… he talked about ‘Protein’, etc. - if time permits I will speak in the rebuttal. I would like to make a statement of Dr. George R. Kar, which is sufficient to counter all his arguments on health. Dr. George. R. Kar, he is the professor of Nutrition, in the University of Texas. Why I am giving the designation, you can come to know that these people actually specialize in catching health fraud - People who deal in, fraud in health. He says that… ‘Virtually all authors of The diet and Disease books - they propose hypothesis which are untested, ill-tested, unfound, unlikely or disproved’. I would like to repeat - Dr. George R. Kar says… ‘Virtually all authors of books on diet and disease - they propose hypothesis which is ill-tested, unfound, non tested, unlikely or disproved’. Time is running short. I would like to make the statement that is given by ‘The American Council on Science and Health’ - Just a statement…. See they are experts. These quotations of research are not scientific facts… all these quotations… that this causes diseases, that… Some are scientific facts, but they can be prevented, but the others things what is mentioning about this land and that land… these are only statistics done by individual researchers. Even when you do Phd. - you can do a research that will come into account, but will not carry weight. American Council on Science and Health says that... ‘A person need not abstain from meat, and be a Vegetarian to have a healthy diet’. And the topic is not... ‘Veg. or Non-Veg. which is healthier?’ - It is… ‘Is Non-Veg. food, permitted or prohibited for the human beings?’ And I will list out the points in summary, to make it easier for Mr. Zaveri to answer, in the rebuttal.
Point No. 1 - There is not a single major Religion, which bans or prohibits all Non-Veg. food in general.
Point No. 2 - Geographical places like Arctic, where Eskimos live - how could you have provided food all these years back, and today also if you provide, it is going to be more expensive.
Point No. 3 - If all life is sacred, why do you kill the plants… even they have life.
Point No. 4 - Even plants feel pain.
Point No. 5 - Even if I agree that they have two senses less - killing a creature of two senses less, is a lesser crime… is illogical.
Point No. 6 - It is preferable to kill one animal and take one animal life, than to take 100 lives of plants, for feeding 100 people.
Point No. 7 - Each and every argument can be disproved… the liver and the kidney, HCL, same with saliva, same with the Ph. of the blood, same with the Lipoprotein.
Point No. 8 - The human beings have an Omnivorous set of teeth, for eating Veg. as well as Non-Veg.
PointNo. 9 - They have a digestive system which can digest both Veg. and Non-Veg., and I have proved it scientifically… I have proved by the enzymes.
Point No. 10 - Primitive man was Non-Veg. - So you cannot say... ‘It is prohibited for human beings’ - human beings... means, it is even for that person.
Point No. 11 - The food you eat has an effect on you behavior - but saying that ...‘Non-Veg food makes you violent’, has got no scientific base at all.
Point No. 12 - Giving arguments that...‘Veg. food makes you strong, makes you peaceful, makes you intelligent makes you athletes’, are all myths.
Point No. 13 - ‘Night vision and sense of smell, is strong in Carnivorous - in Herbivorous it is less’. ‘The Carnivorous animal has hoarse voice, you know coarse voice - Herbivorous animals do not have coarse voice’... are all illogical arguments.
Point No. 14 - ‘That Veg. food is cheaper’… I have disproved it - It is not economical. In certain countries - Yes! like India, it can be - But if you go abroad, in the Western countries, Veg. food is more expensive - And fresh Veg. food is phenomenal… Fresh vegetables. Further more….
Point No. 15 - That... ‘the land required to graze the animal, will cause scarcity of the land for growing crops’... is also wrong.
Point No. 16 - If the Non-Vegetarians stop slaughtering the cattle… do you know, that there will be over population of cattle.
Point No. 17 - According to Dr. Kar… ‘These books written by dietitians, they cannot be relied upon’. All these statistics given, are mainly from there.
Point No. 18 -There is not a single statement in any authentic medical book which says... ‘Non-Veg. food in general, should be banned’.
Point No. 19 - There is not a single government on the face of the earth, which has banned all Non-Veg. food, as a general rule. And,
Point No. 20 - that even ‘ The American Council on Science and Health’ has said that...‘For a healthy diet, being a pure Vegetarian is not required’. These are sufficient proofs, logical and scientific, that Non-Veg. food has to be permitted. If Mr. Zaveri does not agree, I request him to answer scientifically - not by comparison on just ‘Researches’. But yet, if Mr. Rashmibhai Zaveri does not reply to more than 20 points which I have put forth, yet I will not ask him to become a Non-Veg. - because I am not a fanatic Non-Vegetarian… I am not. Yet if he wants to continue eating vegetarian food, I have got no objection - It is a personal choice… It is a personal choice. Some people like… due to certain taste, etc. - it is a personal choice. And, only thing I would like to tell the people that… the Vegetarians, the ideological Vegetarians who do so much propaganda that... ‘This has got more value, etc.’ - they should stop such things, and stop distributing these type of books, which mislead the people. I would like to end my talk by given a quotation from the Glorious Qur’an, from Surah Nahl, Chapter 16, Verse 125, which says... (Arabic)… That is… ‘Invite all to the ways of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them, and reason with them in the ways that are best and most gracious’. Wa Aakhiru Dawana Anil Hamdullillahi Rabbil Aalameen.
