March 25 (Bloomberg) – Hong Kong ‘s Department of Health has instructed traditional Chinese medicine maker Li Chung Shing Tong (Holdings) to recall Po Chai pills after they were found to contain banned substances in Singapore, the South China Morning Post said.

The pills, popular among sufferers from digestion problems, were found to contain phenolphthalein and sibutramine, substances that can lead to serious side effects, according to a department spokesman, the newspaper said.

“Po Chai” (see images below) have been banned in Singapore. They are also being recalled in Hong Kong.

Apart from the two dangerous chemicals (phenolphthalein and sibutramine) found by the Singapore Govt., mercury is another component used in the manufacture of the pills ! 

Mercury can cause serious brain damage:

The following is prevalent in Malaysia and Spore.
At shop malls, do not drink the drink sold from the Chinese golden drums, those little shop with rich-looking urns selling those “anti-heaty” tea and tea & herbal-steamed eggs. 
As well, by roadsides everywhere, where the guy asks if you would like to kar liew (add powder) 
Pass this message to friends and family. 
Consume it often, and your bone marrow will go porous and weak. 
 My friend’s wife, in Pudu, is now with one leg shorter after hip-joint replacement. She is 40-over years, and drank jln.Pasar’s “kar liew” for years.

Bananas ripened with Carbide

Cautious when selecting bananas

Death is being sold now-a-days in our markets.  

We all love bananas  but the bananas available in the market are forced ripe by dipping in water mixed with Carbide.  The consumption of these bananas is 100% sure to cause Cancer or some other infection in the stomach.  Therefore, such types of bananas are to be avoided.
But, how does one recognize the bananas ripened with the help of Carbide?  

Bananas which are ripened naturally are dark yellow and there are small black spots here and there on the bananas and the stalks are black.
While those which are forced ripe with Carbide are lemon yellow and their stalks are green and moreover they are clear yellow without any black spots.
Now, what is Carbide and how is it harmful? 

 Carbide is a chemical which if mixed with water, emits heat and the heat emitted by a Close tank mixed with Carbide is even more than that emitted by a LPG Cylinder, so much so it can be used for Gas Cutting (which means the calorific value is so high that it can replace LPG gas).  In the same way, when a bunch of bananas is dipped in the water mixed with Carbide, the gas gets absorbed into the bananas and they get ripe.  

However, the banana vendors are not that literate and so they do not know the exact proportion of Carbide to be used for a dozen of bananas.  As a result they end up using excess quantity of Carbide which gets absorbed into the bananas and ultimately enters our stomach.  Due to this excess use of Carbide, Tumours can be formed in our digestive system.
So, next time you purchase bananas, make sure you select the naturally ripened ones.

Cancer causing foods

Five cancer-causing foods are:

1.. Hot Dogs

cancer food 

Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can’t live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and Bacon

Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts


Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries

Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies


All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.
