10 ways Tea Drinking Can Benefit Your Health

Nowadays, many people drink tea, but not all of them know of its health benefits. Those that know not only drink it, but they also incorporate it in the foods they are eating when trying to lose weight. In ancient China, it was believed that tea will detoxify your body and prevent liver disease. In recent years researches have shown that is much to gain from a health’s point of view if you drink tea. Want to know what those benefits are? These are the ten most important:


  • It can prevent weight gain. We all need are daily doses of caffeine, but consider this: a soft drink has more calories than a cup of tea, 200 to be exact, so think of this next time you are choosing your morning beverage. If you have tea with milk and sugar, that means you’ll still be adding some calories, but if you drink plain tea, which a lot of people can’t stand, you will be having a drink with 0 calories.
  • It prevents ovarian cancer. If you drink a cup of tea a day you will lower the risk of ovarian cancer by 24% and if you drink 2 cups per day you will lower it by 46%, according to a study made in Sweden for 15 years, on 60,000 women.


  • It increases you metabolism. Thanks to the polyphenols and caffeine, which can be found in teas, your insulin uptake efficiency will increase and so will your metabolism. It can also help you lose weight because it increases the rate of fat oxidation in your body. A study has shown that you will lose 4,6% of your body weight if you drink tea moderately for 3 months.
  • It will make your bones stronger. According to a study, if you drink tea for over 10 years you will have stronger bones, compared to those who didn’t drink any tea.
  • It will keep you hydrated. The rule used to be that caffeine drinks didn’t count when it came to hydration, because they were considered to act as a diuretic. Nowadays, studies have proven that if you drink moderate amounts of caffeine beverages, they will keep you hydrated to a certain extent. Not to mention that we all get tired of drinking water every day, so tea should be a welcomed change.
  • It can save you from having a stroke. If you drink 3 cups or more of tea daily, you will lower your chances of having a stroke by 21%, according to a research paper presented at the 2009 Stroke Conference.
  • It will power-up your immune system. If you drink tea on a regular basis you will have five times the amount of T-cells, or anti-bacterial proteins in your system, compared to non-tea drinkers. Because of this, it is believed that it can also be used to power-up the immune system of HIV-positive patients or others with damaged immune systems.
  • It will protect your teeth. If you drink pain tea, without sugar, or anything else, the fluoride and tannings from it will fight plaque, they will also decrease bacterial infections and give you a nicer breath.
  • It will stimulate your mind. If you are an elderly person, try drinking minimum 2 cups of tea a day, because it will make your mind sharper by 50%, compared to those people who drink other beverages.
  • It will help you relax. The fact that drinking tea helps you relax is not just a myth, it’s the truth. The cortisol levels of those who drink tea drops 20 percent faster than of those who don’t, according to a study done by researchers at University College in London. Cortisol is a stress-induced hormone and if it exists in high quantities for a long period of time it can lead to cardiovascular disease, weight gain and high blood pressure. If you still prefer coffee to tea, know this: the caffeine effect one gets from drinking tea “arrives” after 15 minutes and compared to coffee it offers a gradual increase, rather than a fast jolt.

    Many studies have shown that you can draw the greatest benefit from tea if you drink it plain, without milk, sweeteners, and sugar or lemon, because they can inhibit some of its healthy effects.

    But no matter how you like your tea, make sure that you brew it the right way in order to get the maximum flavor and tannings out of it.

    Before you decide to follow my instructions, you should know that these results are available for green and black tea made from the plant Camellia sinensis. Although herbal teas don’t contain true tea leaves, they also have positive effects on your health. Because both green and black teas have such amazing health benefits, a mixed consumption of the two would be a good idea. If you want to sleep well at night, you might want to drink green tea in the afternoon.

Do at least those children who drink milk of educated Indian mothers in general learn that India is ranked 79 for Quality and Safety in Global Food Security index 

18 March 2016: Hindustan Times: 2 out of 3 Indians drink milk laced with detergent, urea and paint

16 March 2016: Some of the most commonly occurring heavy metals in our daily foods are cadmium, lead, arsenic and mercury. All of these lead to serious health implications, primarily causing damage to healthy tissue. "Long term exposure to cadmium causes fragile bones and decreased bone strength whereas mercury causes damage to stomach and intestines," said Khandare.

28 July 2015: Now, states in India show contamination in water & milk

In water, Chandigarh showed 100 per cent adulteration, Jharkhand 75 per cent, Andhra Pradesh 70 per cent, Karnataka 66 per cent and Tamil Nadu 58 per cent out of the samples collected for testing from each state or union territory.

Many states, which had showed considerable levels of adulteration in bottled water in the previous financial year, have not given their data for this year. Gujarat at 40 per cent, Haryana 30 per cent and Uttar Pradesh at 28 per cent contamination last year, are among the states with no data for 2014-15, as per Parliament reply given on July 24.

In milk too, there are many absentees in 2014-15 including Gujarat, Delhi, West Bengal, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, with these states offering no data. Himachal Pradesh showed 92 per cent of its milk samples being contaminated, while others with high level of adulteration were Jharkhand at 45 per cent, Chhattisgarh at 38 per cent, Jammu & Kashmir at 32 per cent and Madhya Pradesh at 28 per cent.


21st January 2015: Six top brands adulterating milk: Food and Drug Administration, India

Ab to Indian maa Insaan hogi to phir bhi bachche ko Indian sadak ke suar jaisa experience mil raha ho sakta hai aur maa ko bhi aur doosro ko bhi.

Indian suar agar positive soch kar bhi koode se hi khayega to phir positive kaise khayega? Insaan to kya nahi soch aur kar sakta hai for our society, environment and world. Aapne socha aur kiya at least apne aur family ke liye about milk?

18th October 2014: Beware of spurious sweets and milk products during festive (Diwali) season

Some of the adulterants that are used in milk are water, chalk, urea, caustic soda and skimmed milk, while Khoya is adulterated with paper, refined oil and skimmed milk powder. Similarly, potato and Vanaspati have been found to contaminate Ghee, while the silver topping that is found on top of most mithais is often aluminium. Similarly, the Saffron thread that decorates mithai is often just dried and coloured corn hair. Combine all this together and you have the recipe for one big, bad stomach ache, if not worse!

So, now that you know why you ought to be careful about where you buy you sweets from and what to watch out for, we come to the next question – how do you know if the goods are spurious or not ! There are several ways methods you can employ to check whether the sweets you have bought are adulterated.

Dr Virendra Yadav, Senior Medical Officer, BK Hospital said, “With the consumption of these adulterated sweets and chocolates, many diseases can occur. Chances of severe stomach infection and food poisoning can happen. Colours are added to the sweets which contain carbon and heavy metal that causes asthama and allergies. If one eats these adulterated sweets for long then later it may develop into cancer.”


"...adulterating milk of various local as well as national brands"

Good the person was caught but what would such people generally do when they're back in society?

I also wonder the bad to very bad things that happened to people who consumed such milk and probably are consuming such milk or their made products.

Does a song like this ever play in your head that chote mote suar teri muththi mein kya hai if and when you're thinking that how unsure you're about the food quality around you.

It's great that we're humans and that the best people in our world have already done so much research and development for us to use and make things increasingly better for us.

18th September 2014: "Go for the eggs of which the hens were raised cage free (with actual room to roam), fed an organic diet, & were not pumped with antibiotics, steroids, etc. These chickens are--at least--a little less stressed, more natural, & in turn healthier. The result? A better egg, in terms of health."

Read this somewhere and wondered how many Indians feel like having been brought up to live as best or even average humans? Of course, Indian street pigs, forest tigers and other animals would live how they are, however, we're humans.

Maa suarni to most likely uska bachcha jeeye poorly lekin hum to insaan hai. Can you please share more about eggs if you know?

19th August 2014: Dairy owners use hair bleach chemical to prolong life of milk

Officials have discovered that to prolong life of milk and milk products, many dairy owners had been using a cocktail of chemicals whose consumption can damage kidney and liver.

Food and drug officials detected Hydrogen peroxide (a common paper and hair bleaching agent), potassium hydroxide (used in soap preparation) and hypo (a bleaching agent) in milk recently.

This is the first time when the department noticed use of these chemicals whose short term consumption can cause gastroenteritis but damage liver and kidneys if ingested for a longer period.

Of these, hydrogen peroxide in particular is almost impossible to detect in laboratory tests, leading the officials to suspect the dairies could have been using these in plenty.

Usually, food security officer said, dairy owners mixed argemone oil, a poisonous substance, and starch in milk during preparations of products like paneer and mawa.

In fact, food security officer, it was the presence of a tin containing huge quantity of hydrogen peroxide at a dairy which alerted them about the misuse of these chemicals.


11th June 2014: Identifying artificially ripened mango


* Put mango in a container with water

* If it sinks to the bottom, it has been ripened naturally

* If it floats, it has matured with the help of calcium carbide

* Chemically matured mangoes also have distorted wrinkles on the skin 

* They also taste different and have a pungent odour

“The Prevention of Food Adulteration act (1955) prohibits usage of such chemicals on food articles.

It has serious effects on health and can even cause cancer. It contains traces of arsenic, phosphorous and on reaction with water, produces acetylene gas.

It is severely irritating to eyes and direct contact may even lead to blindness. On contact with skin, it causes severe irritation, and rashes with burns.

On ingestion, it causes nausea, vomiting, headache, and burns in the gastrointestinal tract.

On inhalation, it leads to coughing, irritation of the throat, irregular breathing, shortness of breath and even pulmonary oedema.

It is neurotoxic and causes headache, dizziness, sleepiness, loss of memory, cerebral oedema, mental confusion and even seizures."

25th May 2014: Indian Cows Are Producing Toxic Milk Because They Are Grazing On Garbage When they return to their dairies their milk is adulterated with paint, detergents, caustic soda, urea and shampoo, the court heard.


Carpenter and maid came together. Carpenter asked for more money than it was agreed for and said that the higher amount was agreed for. This makes me think that is your maid harming you without you and she even realizing it? Do you wash the utensils once again to remove any stuck chemicals used by maid to wash the utensils? Also see:  

When girls in India start drinking mother's milk then do they start becoming inferior from their initial human potential and does that make them suffer even more in life due to harmed mind and body?

11th May 2014: According to traders, almost 70% of the coconut oil sold through unbranded retail network is impure

Unfortunately, scientific detection of adulteration is very difficult as normal lab testing is ineffective in the case of coconut oil. Adulterated oil having coconut oil to the tune of 30 per cent exhibits the same quality and aroma as that of pure coconut oil.

7th May 2014: How much of this is also coming into India: Carrot, bean, tomato, lettuce, capsicum, banana, apple, pineapple and mango were contaminated with highly toxic pesticides. And the presence of banned pesticide Aldrin was found in milk, the test found.

Please also learn and think about what's coming in from our world. It's wonderful to get high-tech and advanced scientific solutions from our world, however, it's not to get such harmful things. It's nice that people there are also active about reducing this severely harmful issue.

29th April 2014: How can one distinguish between artificially ripened mangoes and organically grown ones? The following link shares about color, taste, texture and color of pulp and juice as factors.

What are the ill-effects of artificially ripened mangoes?

Dr Shah says, ‘Chemicals and pesticides cause a variety of diseases, some of the ill effects, they are known hormone disruptors leading to an increase in the number of hormonal diseases today like hypothyroid, polycstic ovaries, diabetes etc. Apart from that, they have been known to lead to Parkinson’s disease, cancer, and worst of all are passed on from mother to child via breast milk.

Is it possible to get rid of the chemicals by washing them properly or eating them without the outer skin?

‘Perhaps a small part but not a large enough amount of it. Wash the fruits well but you will still feel the burning sensation and carry all the ill effects,’ says Dr Shah.

21st April 2014: Jiski maa Indian woh in general kaisa khana khila rahi hogi aur usse log kaise ban rahe honge? With such low punishment for such a serious crime, how many people might keep doing this and causing us harm?  It's great that these people were caught due to great work of others, however, how many more would be doing this and which would also depend on how Indian mothers in general are making their children that we've people doing such things and other people not able to mostly stop this and that our condition has worsened so much. I wish us best.

In India, use of calcium carbide is strictly banned as per PoFA (Prevention of Food Adultration) Act [Section 44AA], because it contain the traces of arsenic and phosphorus, which pose a serious threat to human health. Acetylene gas, a by-product of calcium carbide, creates heat. It is mainly used as a fuel and in welding, and contains toxic impurities that affect the nervous system. When acetylene is filled amidst the fruit in a box, it heats the fruit on the outside, and thus the mangoes and oranges turn yellow or orange, as the case may be.

"Though we had inspected fruit shops and godowns across the district, it's the first time we are seizing mangoes and calcium carbide together. It's a grave offence and the person can get a prison term of up to three years and a fine of up to Rs5 lakh for engaging in such a criminal activity," said a food safety official.

6th April 2014: Jiski maa insaan woh kaisa doodh pilaye? Today it’s more than likely that your glassful of doodh, or milk, contains everything from contaminated water, urea and milk powder to detergent, bleaching agents and the (banned) hormone oxytocin. 

All the entrepreneurs emphasize their humane dairy farming practices—free-range cows “pampered” with tailor-made feed free of any pesticides, on-call nutritionists and veterinarians, mechanized milking, no hormones or antibiotics, and the fact that the milk is absolutely untouched till it reaches the customer’s doorstep. 

All these brands are, of course, available at a premium. Insaan hona bhi to premium hai sadak ke kutte, suar aur jungle ke sher, hathi se. I wish an increasing number of people would be able to get pure milk.

30th March 2014: Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Kamaljeet Singh Dhillon said that the raids were conducted on a tip-off that some milk-sellers were preparing synthetic milk and other products by using  adulterated milk products at Longiwind. 
"We have seized 25,000 litres of adulterated milk from two canter tanks and 8 kg desi ghee," said the SSP.

8th March 2014: How do Indian women feel being an Indian on International Women's Day? What do you do for yourself and for your future to feel great as Indian? Perhaps it also depends on what you've learned from previous generations. How would you make the future generations?

Please share with people about our issues to make them aware so that they would reduce doing things that harm us. Think of how pigs and tigers goes after their food and then think of how humans should go after their food.

The Delhi High Court today termed as "alarming" the findings of an expert committee on the status of pesticide residues in food commodities and said almost entire 1.75 crore Delhiites eat fruits and vegetables which are not fit for human consumption.

The NGO Consumer Voice, one of the petitioners in the court, said the quantum of pesticides in fruits and vegetables in India, especially those sold in Delhi markets, was as much as 750 times the European standards.

The NGO claimed that of the five internationally banned pesticides, four were found to be common in vegetables sold here.

The move had come after some NGOs submitted survey reports that vegetables and fruits sold in the city's markets contain poisons capable of causing cancer and harming the nervous system and liver.

4th March 2014: “We may be eating dangerous dye, sawdust, soap, stone, industrial starch or aluminium foil along with food,” said Assistant Professor of Chemistry Leena Singh, who has done research in adulteration. Adulteration is easy money for traders and slow poisoning, disease or death for consumers. What we eat can be unsafe, unhygienic or harmful when nutritious elements in them are killed. “An easy example of food adulteration is vanaspati in desi ghee.” Adulterants when used in illicit drugs are called cutting agents, deliberate addition of toxic adulterants to food or other products for human consumption is known as poisoning. These adulterants are often highly carcinogenic and when consumed over a continuous period of time can stunt growth and cause serious ailments.

Indian sadak ki kutiya, suarni ya aur koi janwar to bahut kuch khila rahi hogi apne ko aur apne bachchon ko. Usme se insaan ka pheka hua khana bhi hoga. Insaan apna khana great karega to sadak ke janwaron ko bhi behter khana mil sakta hai. Aur phir, sadak pe janwar to hone hi nahin chahiye jahan ki janwaron ki natural jagah na ho. Jaa raha hun ON 100% Whey Gold Standard protein supplement khareedne. Mehenga hai lekin chahiye bhi.

(Indian street female dog, pig or other animals would be feeding several things to self and to their children. In that, there'll be food thrown away by humans. If humans would make their food great then street animals could also get better food. And then, there shouldn't be animals on the street where there's no natural place for the animals. I'm going to buy ON 100% Whey Gold Standard protein supplement. It's expensive but required.)

27th February 2014: While silver and gold are inert metals that do not harm the body’s composition, adulterants like aluminium, nickel and copper cause serious side affects to one’s health, including skin diseases, breathing problems and irregularities in the heart. While most of the established shops use pure varks, smaller nondescript shops tend to market adulterated vark.

Chandi (silver) vark was initially introduced in Hyderabad for its medicinal purposes in Unani and Ayurveda. It was later picked up as a decorative garnish by confectionary makers.

Suarni bhi Indian banaye, Sherni bhi Indian banaye aur Insaan bhi Indian banaye. Kya aap vark khaate aur khilate hai bina check kiye ki theek hai ki nahi. Thank You Germany for your technological solution. 

So how does one tell a good vark from an adulterated one, considering that both silver and aluminium tend to look the same when drawn into sheets?:

23rd February 2014: When asked if the wax coated on most apples is safe to consume, Dr Priyanka Rohatgi, Chief Clinical Nutritionist and Head, Nutrition and Dietetics, Apollo Hospitals, says, “We are not sure of the composition of the wax but it is unfit for human consumption. Wax should never be consumed.”

1st February 2014: "...a large portion of it [milk] is a toxic cocktail of white paint, caustic soda, detergent, shampoo, urea, starch and blotting paper that is harmful for the heart, lungs, liver and can even cause cancer."

Aur in sadak ke janwaron ka kya hoga? Jab doodh ki mithai sadak par phik gayi aur suaron, kutton aur doosre janwaron ne kha liya to unka kya hoga? Yeh janwar sadak pe nahin rehne chahiye kyunki yeh to apne liye kuch kar bhi nahin sakte jaise ki insaan kar sakte hai. "the menace was most rampant during festival seasons when the demand peaks."

16th January 2014: I had found an organic milk shop nearby. However, someone who owns cows nearby told mom that the organic shop takes milk from them. I don't know what that organic milk shop does what this milk. However, mom stopped getting milk from that organic shop.

I've heard similar about other organic shops also that they aren't as organic as they claim to be. If you're buying organic then try to check if it's really organic.

2nd January 2014: Ginger coloring inside - Is this due to harmful chemicals like acid wash? I bought this yesterday, 1st Jan 2014, evening from street vendor. I'm not an Indian street pig or any other animal but human and hence I share to ask and also make others aware about whether they check what they buy and also how can be their food when they eat outside. Do you wonder how our previous generations in general have been that we've such issues now. Is it possible to very easily complain about this to authority and that immediate action is taken due to public health at possibly high risk. What are you doing to make things better? I wish us best!

10824439881?profile=original17th December 2013: Time to buy organic! Why? Plates loaded with pesticides: Survey shows fruit, vegetables are high on chemical content.

God, Is eating such like Indian street pig eating from filth who's really not doing anything about the harmful things in its food? Sadak ke suar jaisa kya God? Kaisa Indian bana rahe hain God? Indian sadak ke suar jaisa nahin baniye. Jab boards lagte the ki dogs and Indians not allowed then parents kya kehte the children ko ki aaj aise issues hain. Indian ki maa in general bachche ko sadak ka suar jaisa banane mein ya jungle ka sher jaisa banane mein ya duniya ka insaan jaisa banane mein best hai? Mother India ko help kariye. Aisi problem ko end kariye. Please sabko aware kariye ki woh great society and environment build and grow karen. Please help.

We are literally consuming poisons. Let’s have a brief look:

Brinjal: Chemical found is Heptachlor, 860% above the legal limit
Cabbage: Chemical found is Cypermethrin, 95.5% above the legal limit
Okra: Chemical found is Heptachlor, 55% above the legal limit
Rice: Chemical found is Chlorfenvinfos, 1324% above the legal limit
Banana: Chemical found is Chlorodane, 54% above the legal limit
Cauliflower: Chemical found is Aldrin, 320% above the legal limit
Apple: Chemical found is Dichlorvas, 140% above the legal limit

In a study conducted by the Kerala Agricultural University, “dangerous levels” of pesticide residues have been found in many main vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage, small red onions, curry leaves, green chillies, etc. About three years ago, Profenofos, which is a second-level pesticide, was banned in India, except for tea and cotton. But its residues have been found in vegetables like gooseberries, green chilli, okra, curry leaves, mint leaves and coriander leaves.

Consuming pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables for a long period of time can prove fatal. Health experts say that pesticides are neurotoxins, affecting the nervous system and other important organs such as liver and kidney. Food poisoning and different sorts of allergies are common from these pesticides. Some pesticides even lead to cancer. Certain pesticides cause skin problems, loss of weight, sleeplessness and irritability.

The skyrocketing price of fruits and vegetables is not the only issue; so is the amount of pesticide residues these contain. It is surprising to know that most of the vegetables and fruits have an alarming percentage of harmful chemicals, which is far above the permissible limit prescribed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.

16th December 2013: I wrote to a client from Europe doing work in India: I wish you're making great sales in India! I read that food not allowed for export to Europe gets sold in India and so please take care with your food and also share with your clients since you mentioned about how people in India get attracted a lot to white people and so I wish they would care a lot about what you would say!

Please motivate your clients in terms of how pigs and tigers go after their food and that we're humans and so can do so much better in health and fitness. You would've heard about price rise of food items a major issue. Please help people to realize that less or more of pig like food is less or more of pig only. We've to make food quality a major issue for our health and fitness. Thank You for your great work!

5th October 2013: I just spoke to the company who sold the seemingly tampered protein box to me. I learned that my complaint call mid last week wasn't registered in their system and hence it seems a delay in their response. I told the rep the person's name who I spoke to. I told the rep that junior people might not care as much and so having direct online system for filing complaints should also be there.

The company rep told me that the customers can file complaints online after they log into the site. I said that I didn't know that and so I just called. I told the rep that there should be link nearby the contact numbers on their site that people can file their complaints online.

I also told the rep that they shouldn't use courier service to get the product back from me because what if it's the courier service that might be opening up the box. The rep said that it's highly unlikely. The person also said that it's highly unlikely that the box is tampered with because of their quality controls. I said that perhaps most people wouldn't check the supplement box like how I did it and so if there's potential mixing in the boxes then they wouldn't realize it. I also said that if this wouldn't have been returned then I would've taken the box to a lab for testing. The rep was very helpful. I'll be writing to major nutrition supplements brands that how people can test their products by themselves and that I would share online and which should also help those brands besides the many people consuming them thinking that it would help them.

I would visit their office next week with the box so that I get another box. Thank You! Best!

26th September 2013: page wrote to me: Thanks again Shakti, always make sure you buy 100% authentic products. You should do that. Fake supplements are loaded with anabolic steroids that cause permanent damage. In future you may shop with us and be assured that the product is 100% genuine as we have over 200 of the best brands in the world with us. Either we are listed on the brand websites as their authorised dealers or we buy directly from the brand's listed distributors.

Several comments with page

25th August 2013: "I buy only branded milk and we need to know whether it is safe. My two sons, aged seven and three, drink milk twice a day. If they skip a meal, milk also fills the gap. But now I am not sure whether giving them milk is a good idea. How will I fulfil their protein requirements?" said Aditi Sharma, a homemaker.

What do you eat and what do you feed others? Are you maximizing your human potential? How do you feel as an Indian having such widespread milk adulteration considering the best in our world? Now people are getting aware about this better, however, what if you and your family consumed adulterated milk for years before? What are you doing for greatness? I do wish that the branded milk at most has non-harmful water mixed. I also wish the best for those selling loose milk. Best!

24th August 2013: Indian in general ka andaa kaisa jab yeh aisaa? (How's the Indian's egg in general when this one is like this?) What are you doing for your health and fitness? Best!

15th August 2013: Mother India, how was the quality of milk and the milk based products that you treated to all Indians today? I wonder what mothers think when they give birth knowing that they can't even feed themselves properly. What quality of humans would generally be born and grown like that? Best!

9th August 2013: God, Is this also why several people in India seem to keep trying to move abroad (ask anyone if they want to and generally they say yes that they want to just like a grandmother yesterday told me that her grandson would go since his grandfather does business in LA, USA)? God, Is this also why the people in India prefer to buy things not made in India if they can?

"As the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) laboratory report recently discovered our branded edible oils are full of unhealthy trans fats. The results showed trans fats in seven leading vanaspati brands were five to 12 times the 2 per cent standard set by Denmark. Trans fats are associated with a host of serious health problems ranging from diabetes to heart disease to cancer."

In the Rigveda, 9th Mandala, Hymn 1.5, "Vanaspati" (literally meaning: Lord of the Forest)..." and so the many people in India are getting weaker like the forests in India? Please help!

30th July 2013: Sources of Adulteration in Milk - Agriculture For Nutrition and Health presentation link

10824440269?profile=originalPossible diseases due to Adulteration in Milk - Agriculture For Nutrition and Health presentation


12 July 2013: Indian doodh wale, Suar jaisa na bana re. Doodh mein tu kya mila re? Tujhe agar koi roke na, Phir bhi ruk jaa re, Apne logon ke bare mein to soch ke.

I thought of this while thinking of milk adulteration issue in India. These days I've been drinking Yakult probiotic milk and I see people making tea using Nestle milk powder which seems nice. I do feel highly unfortunate about the severe milk adulteration issue. What do you do about milk adulteration? Best!

6th July 2013: Could this comment even discourage other people from maximizing their human potential? What's the future of India? Following comments continue from my previous post on 5th July:

PERSON Shakti Saran... Checked with the Poultry farm guy... The problem in India is more related to over use of antibitics... to keep the chickens from falling ill - not so for the chemicals you mentioned, though some remind me of my Botany classes and seems I am right: So, if the yellow colour is coming from Xanthophyll - we are actually getting essential nutrients from natural sources - Leaf to egg to humans. I wouldn't worry too much. Also, Americans do get frazzled by Dihydrogen Oxide... What can one say!

11 hours ago · Like

Shakti Saran PERSON, You said "more" and "not so for", however, it's unclear the absolute quantities present in general. Why are you making such light comments about such a serious issue or is the issue not that serious to you? If you've a good idea about their quantities used in general then please share because that'll really be of value if you can understand my point which I say because if you possibly did then you wouldn't only compare these two but also provide good idea about their quantities used in general meaning possibly how much of them are in an egg in general or else they could even be in very minute quantities or even in significant quantities having possibility of doing increasing harm to people over a long period of consumption. 

Also, you talk about some botany class, however, is this chemical being fed for nutrition of hen or for primary purpose of making the yolk yellower because if it's the latter then what could be its harmful effects and also why make people think that their yolk is yellower than natural by using such chemical unless the yolk might not have been yellow enough otherwise and that the people might have then thought that perhaps the egg isn't that good? 

Also, I mentioned about there being a variety of healthy options for eggs in USA and so I don't understand why you would mention about what you mentioned unless you don't have anything better to mention about how to improve things in India? 

I feel highly unfortunate to type all this than getting much more valuable inputs for my post for the masses. It makes me wonder the quality and quantity of research and development in India. I typed because I wish that more and more people would realize better. Around an hour ago while on my way to my place, someone I met told me about people in general according to him that they say that "khahin to girna hai" (somewhere they have to fall). I wonder why people aren't using anti-pollution mask in Delhi region given the very high and severely harmful pollution. I wonder about several other such things and that then I meet such people who tell me such things.

5th July 2013: 

Someone comments on my post in some group:

PERSON The yellowness of Indian eggs comes from the green leaves and carotenoids in them...
50 minutes ago · Like

Shakti Saran I thought my point was simple to understand since many people might be suffering from food adulteration and so perhaps also thinking about it. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough! I meant if chemicals are being used to make the yolk yellower. Somewhere I had read about a yellow dye created by feeding Xanthophyll, zeanthin, marigold dye and caroteinic acid. There could be any other combination of things also. Are they really there and if so then generally what all and that how much?

My post:

God, I've heard of stories of long ago of people in India being able to convert energy to matter. Why didn't you inspire them to make India great or did you or what happened and can you please help now?

Yesterday, my cousin visited who has cleared her medical exams in USA and now will be going there soon for a job. She mentioned about the variety of very healthy options for eggs being sold there.

What's the quality of egg of Indian in general? Please help us to have the best quality eggs in India also. I read somewhere that the yellow in egg sold in India might also be due to chemicals fed to chickens and if so then how harmful are those chemicals?

I request all to read about the highly valuable efforts of this human including for inspiration to make our world a much greater place. On this 4th of July, thank you very much for your efforts that I've technologies and solutions to share this with our world and I wish for humans to maximize their potential. Best!

I've also shared it on which I wish would be of value to you.

How many Indians get milk from market or consume milk based products from market that have lesser harmful adulteration than the milk being had by these piglets?

What do you do to ensure that your milk from market and milk based products from market are without harmful adulteration? What all harm do you think can milk adulteration cause you?

27 MAY 2013: The NGO picked up 193 samples of 35 different vegetables from markets in Bangalore, Delhi and Kolkata. These were then tested for 106 pesticides and the results were alarming as four of the five banned chemicals were found in these samples.

18 May 2013: Consumption of fruit ripened using carbide can cause diarrhoea, mouth ulcers, dizziness and even cancer in the long run. Bet on it. Your mango is ripened using carbide. [I suggest to test for it than not eating it at all. Anyone knows how?] In its biggest haul this year, AMC destroys 22,700 kg mangoes at Naroda wholesale fruit market.

From article published on June 13, 2011 about NON CALCIUM CARBIDE ripened mangoes 

Meanwhile, consumers are becoming more and more aware and hence, choosey about what they eat. Dr Vanit Kathuria, deputy manager (seeds and support services) at Mother Dairy’s Safal points out, “Apart from conventional factors such as price, quality and demand that affect the market, ‘safety’ has become an important factor in recent times.

Instead of calcium carbide, Safal authorities have been using ethylene, since setting up the Mangolpuri facility in 1988. Mature unripe mangoes are kept in temperature and humidity-controlled chambers, followed by a trigger of ethylene (at permissible limits) for 24 hours.

At the end of the third day, ripe mangoes are ready to be sent to retail outlets. “This is a kind of an accelerated process using ethylene. When fruits mature in a natural way, they release ethylene, which, in turn releases heat that helps in ripening. It takes six-seven days. But using the ethylene trigger, we get the same result in just three days,” said Subhash Sharma, Safal’s DGM (operations).

Safal has been advocating the ‘ripen mangoes at home’ concept. Unripe mature mangoes available at retail outlets are wrapped in a newspaper and placed in an airtight container for 4-6 days at home.

“The psychology of the consumer is such that they accept things easily if they are involved (in the process). Both children and elders are excited at the prospect of ripening mangoes at home,” Sharma added.

14 March 2013: People say what's the alternative to eating several harmful adulterated food. I've started these lists today and let's start more (I'm going to hire someone soon to keep adding shop details in the following lists. If you can tell any shops to add their details then that might help increasing number of people!):

In this blog, I'll be sharing posts related to food adulteration in India. I'll be sharing issues and also on basic to advanced solutions for reducing and stopping it. I welcome you to comment with anything of value. I wish that all of us realize that by doing any amount of food adulteration, we're harming ourselves, our family and friends, and our society and world at large. What's the point of earning money that will mostly go to curing diseases and that one wouldn't even be well enough to enjoy any of the remaining money? I wish that we can do much better than how things are in India and that if you wonder that why we Indians haven't been able to have things much better then I also wonder about our elders for the same, however, I also think that just by saying that they were/are useless or not good enough wouldn't help. We've to make the issue of food adulteration a critical issue in our lives since food is critical for our lives without which we can't even live and that if we're eating adulterated food then seriously how well are we living? Can we think of the Indian street dogs who eat just whatever that they get? We're humans who're capable in general and that we can at least get rid of the issue of food adulteration by all of us working together intelligently, smartly, and with common sense.   

A person working at gym offered me Boondi as Prasad Even though he had it in his hand, I took it from the polythene bag while telling him that I don't know if his hands are clean or not. Also, polythene bag has its own issues including when hot things are put in it like if the boondi is hot. I've written before on offering sweets as Prasad including that we don't know how proper are the ingredients and the cooking given widespread food adulteration in India which is much more unfortunate than widespread Indian street dogs and that we should try to reduce towards eventually stopping food adulteration, Indian street dogs who generally live very miserably and other issues. I'm now going to suggest the gym owner who I met today after a long while and whose company's web-site is being developed by me and my team that those interested in gym can contribute to buy quality chocolate like Cadbury to be offered to Lord Hanuman as Prasad on Tuesdays which is the day dedicated to Him. I'll share the same with others at gym as well since the owner called me his younger brother today which is great and that I wish that his quality gym wouldn't lead people to getting sick due any unfortunate issues in India and that his given work to me of making his web-site would be done well! Best! Shakti 

28 July 2015: Now, states in India show contamination in water & milk
In water, Chandigarh showed 100 per cent adulteration, Jharkhand 75 per cent, Andhra Pradesh 70 per cent, Karnataka 66 per cent and Tamil Nadu 58 per cent out of the samples collected for testing from each state or union territory.
Many states, which had showed considerable levels of adulteration in bottled water in the previous financial year, have not given their data for this year. Gujarat at 40 per cent, Haryana 30 per cent and Uttar Pradesh at 28 per cent contamination last year, are among the states with no data for 2014-15, as per Parliament reply given on July 24.
In milk too, there are many absentees in 2014-15 including Gujarat, Delhi, West Bengal, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, with these states offering no data. Himachal Pradesh showed 92 per cent of its milk samples being contaminated, while others with high level of adulteration were Jharkhand at 45 per cent, Chhattisgarh at 38 per cent, Jammu & Kashmir at 32 per cent and Madhya Pradesh at 28 per cent.

"Incentive programs are not wellness programs," said Dr. Ronald Goetzel, Director of Emory University's Institute for Health and Productivity Research and President and CEO of The Health Project. "That can be a component, when done smartly, of a comprehensive program, but if that's all your program is going to be, you're going to fail miserably, and people are going to be resentful," he explained. According to Goetzel -- who has studied worksite wellness programs at large corporations such as Dow Chemical and Johnson & Johnson, and is being funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study best practices in the field -- incentive programs can help get people excited about health and keep them on track, but ultimately people's habits will only change if they are given the resources to change them and if the workplace norms and environments change. 

Without the other pieces to facilitate behavior change -- healthy cafeterias, opportunities to exercise, flexible work hours, supportive leadership and middle managers, and health risk assessments and coaching -- incentive programs will only penalize, not change, those who are least healthy.

Dear All, I do think that both sweets and medicines have their values. However, are we having an unhealthy quantity and quality of sweets leading us to having more type of and expensive medicines? Today after gym, I went to a supermarket store in the same mall, however, it had closed because it was after 10 pm. There's a market next to the mall. I walked on the main road next to the market looking for a shop to be selling a kind of very healthy cereals. I walked till the end of the market but didn't see such a shop (perhaps there is but was closed). However, I saw some different sweets shops and medicine shops open. Also, how much regular healthy unadulterated food are we having? In this regard, you might also get value from post. I wish that thinking of these would be of value. Best, Shakti

If you wonder how to jog or run then watch this video presented by Dr. Andre Albrecht from Germany 


Which is better for you, jogging or walking?

Nearly all studies show that jogging provides slightly more benefits for your bones, muscles, heart, and lungs. But walking has gained a lot of ground in the last decade or so as a viable exercise. It strengthens bones, tones muscles, and helps your cardiovascular system.

Walking is easier on the body's joints. It causes far fewer injuries to heels, shins, knees, and hips than jogging or stair climbing, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.

And virtually everybody can walk.

Moreover, walking is linked to better physical functioning, even among older people who already suffer from chronic disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine. Both of these two groups call for getting at least 30 minutes of walking or a similar activity every day. This level of exercise burns at least 150 calories of energy.

For those of any age who can handle greater intensity and joint-pounding, however, jogging may be the way to go.

I like shoes, however, Christopher McDougall Talk from also has its values

From "Because of certain physiological factors—including body temperature and the release of key energy-metabolizing hormones—some joggers may find they function better at night, according to Shawn D. Youngstedt, Ph.D., professor of exercise science at the University of South Carolina."

Emailed CBI Cyber Crime Cell article

5th March 2015: Do you wonder what are the Indian mothers putting into children in general that they're making the society and environment like this? Please see the filth in open, level of pollution and bad condition of public infrastructure around here considering what human can seem to do in general. Do you wonder how are the Indian mothers getting affected that their children are becoming like this that they aren't conducting such a crucial survey according to Economic Times.

Indian girls and women who aren't having proper nutrition and much worse who're taking in harmful to severely harmful chemicals in air, water, food, land and products might later produce children from their tissues and also milk for them and then what would happen to mind and body of those children and then what would they do. Please care about nutrition.

Is that also why the top leadership of Infosys seems to be moving to Silicon Valley so that they can give much better air and other things to themselves and their families which is a human thinking if they can't even know the pollution level around them in major parts of India.

How can mother's milk quality affect people over the years and how does severely harmful pollution and other things affect mother's milk?

We're neither Indian sadak ke suar (street pig) nor jungle ke sher (forest tiger) but human. It's great that we can share such things to try and improve our conditions.

I just read an Economics Times news that No nutrition survey in India in last 10 years.

19th January 2014: My aunt is scolding the maid that yesterday she didn't clean her washroom properly and there's white white powder on the floor. I then thought about Indians growing up drinking milk and having milk products that how their milk quality has affected the highly unfortunate situation of Indian street dogs around them? Did you ever wonder about it?

My aunt fears dogs including as pets and had told me earlier that walking on the road in front of apartment complex during late night can be unsafe due to street dogs. Several of her family stays in US and her mother gets great and expensive care from there and is even going there for a year after some days. My aunt also wishes to move there with her family perhaps also to feel human like she wants to because here she can share such things with me but can she really get all the Indians street dogs removed from around her so that she can enjoy much more freely her society and environment?

Do you think IIT'ians move abroad even right after graduation also because of the Indian street dogs that they see throughout the years and think that even after so many humans in India, the Indian street dogs are still around and in such condition making it not only highly unfortunate for animals but also for humans. I would think that animals like dogs can either be pets in urban areas or not be in urban areas because it doesn't seem like a natural environment for them. Several of my aunt's relatives are IIT'ians who're now in the US and doing well to very well and even funding work in India but they seem to primarily stay abroad. Of course, IITs are considered top-quality in India and so do you think that by people doing things in India that the IIT'ians move abroad that the others can also get much better work opportunities? It's great to have Indians around our world doing well to very well.

My aunt's three bedroom apartment has rent of around 40K a month which is very high for most Indians. It has boards that say that dog feces can contain germs and be harmful and so to clean up if the dog poops inside the apartment complex or else there's a 1000 INR fine. I've seen people make their dogs poop on the road in front of the apartment complex on which several people also walk. Do you wonder that why almost everywhere unless perhaps it's a highly posh area that there are Indian street dogs? How has the milk of Indians affected this in general?

I've also shared the above in my LinkedIn article "IIT, IIM... people speak"

27th December 2014: India’s eating habits may have changed, but not nutrition levels

A top nutritionist in India told me that Indian males have been reducing in masculine characteristics due to estrogen being used in chemicals on farmlands to reduce the growth of rats. Who in India told you this?

Small Fat Suar (Pig) jaisa (like), Big Fit Sher (Tiger) jaisa or Insaan (Human) jaisa food? And what about harmful chemicals in air, water, food and land?

26th December 2014: Healthy men who did 20 minutes of daily weight training had less increase in age-related abdominal fat than men who spent the same amount of time doing aerobic activities, according to a new study by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers and colleagues.

Combining weight training and aerobic activity led to the most optimal results. Aerobic exercise by itself was associated with less weight gain compared with weight training.

11th December 2014: I let go of a project including to not rot my client and myself how the many Indians might be rotting in terms of wasting time like on the roads like I see in Bangalore. I've heard from several people in the few days that I've been here about the huge traffic problem here that they generally prefer to do things nearby to avoid traffic. Do you wonder how else the Indians could be rotting like due to the severely harmful pollution? Also, do you wonder that when mother is Indian then on average how much badboo (bad smell) comes from the children due to harmful chemicals in air, water, food and land? I shared about not doing the client's project as latest update on

20th November 2014: Jiski maa sadak ki suarni, woh jungle ke sher ki tarah nahi jeeta hai, insaan se to koi comparison hi nahi. 

While returning from gym, an auto-driver who has a stand nearby saw me on the road and asked me that he doesn't see me these days. Then I thought of what another auto-driver told me recently. 

Few days ago, I had taken an auto from Vaishali (Delhi metro) station. I had asked the driver that since when he was driving auto in this area because he knew the area well as he was talking to me about it. 

He had then said that only for some months here, however, he has been driving auto for some years. He left his previous place because there the police used to take a lot of money. 

I thought that today this auto-driver is asking me that he doesn't see me these days and perhaps he would also move over the years. The drivers at the stand had told me that they also pay some monthly amount to the police. I don't know if they lied to me or what. I do wish that the police get the best of everything including pay which would also affect mother's milk because the chemicals in air, water, food and land would also affect girls. I wish us best!!!

14th November 2014: Indian doctors ke bachche bhi sad (rot) ho rahe honge kya?

I saw a lady doctor at some gym and went to her. I was wearing my anti-pollution mask. I showed her the mask and shared with her that children could be rotting a lot more now from harmful chemicals in air.

She said that she sees the same daily in children when they come coughing. I told her about the mask that some person of British origin in India has got this anti-pollution mask made using an air filter technology used by defense forces and imports it in India and I had bought it some years ago. I told her the name of mask which is Neomask.

Shortly after that, a German friend called who's now in India and just before I going to the gym, she and I had spoken and she had shared about how great the air is in Germany and that she's struggling with air here.

I also saw street dogs around and wondered jab maa sadak ki kutiya to uske bachche kya kar sakte hai uske liye jab woh sad rahi hogi from harmful chemicals in air, water, food and land aur jab maa jungle ki sherni to uske bachche ko to mostly iss level ke issues honge hi nahin. Insaan to kya nahi kar sakta hai. I wish us best!!!

31st July 2014: We’re heading into a jobless future, no matter what the government does

My comment: This well thought out and written article doesn't mention about the number of humans in our world after a few decades. 

Based on articles like about use of antibiotics in chickens in India and several others, it does seem possible that lots of people could get wiped out from earth soon and then the much fewer good enough humans could live in a lot more abundance. The machines would do an increasing amount of our work and that the humans would apply more of our seemingly infinite potential towards advancing the machines to the extent of they becoming one with the humans and that would help humans to also maximize the seemingly infinite potential of our universe overall for humanity. 

I've thought increasingly related to this since the late 1990s and it's fantastic to read such an article. Of course, if more humans become good enough and not get wiped out then more of us can do a lot more for humanity. 

In 1990s when I was starting college at Georgia Tech, I had thought of studying towards building myself in robotics. I had pursued a Computer Science degree with a variety of Mathematics and other courses. My interest in robotics had also come from interest in autonomous flying machines and ships and by looking at large machines with design issues for human operation when I stayed with a Director of a shipyard and the Director had valued my observations. Since then I've done a variety of things but little specifically related to robotics and I do wish to increasingly contribute also to and through machines. Best Wishes!!! 

23rd July 2014: Jab India insaan banaye to ye to common hoye jaise ki high confidence in quality of air, water, food and land nahin to phir suar, sher aur doosre janwar to utne hi kabil hai.

During workout at gym, I got over with water and went to easyday in the mall to buy a bottle. However, there wasn't Kinley (Coca Cola) or Aquafina (Pepsi) but another brand (a popular name in India). I didn't buy that brand's water because someone who runs a printing company in India having top Indian and international brands as clients told me that he doesn't buy that brand but buys Kinley or Aquafina because of what he has heard about them in terms of quality. So I bought Gatorade even though it wasn't in the refrigerator. I worked out very well after that including for a long duration.

While walking back from gym, I saw an auto and took it to my place. When I reached my place, the driver asked me if I had water. I had a Tupperware (seems to be high quality plastic) bottle in hand and perhaps he couldn't clearly see in the dark that there was no water in it. I told him that I'll ask the security guards to get him water on which he responded as if he didn't want water from them because they might create an issue. I said that there'll be no issue and that I'll get him water from them.

I wondered about this auto driver's experience with people in general that he thought of avoiding to ask the security guards even though he was thirsty and had even dropped me there and so could've asked the guards. Perhaps it's similar to I avoiding a popular brand in India of water. Of course, in the worse case it could be better than non-filtered water in general, however, if I can get something better then why not. Of course, there would be people who would not only ask others but also fool and cheat others.

I requested the guards at the gate to give water to the driver and our night shift electrician was there who knows me for a while and he shared quickly with the driver about having water. Our security guards keep changing and I don't know them well. Once a guard had told me that he had had some issue and he needed money and then I had given it to him and soon after I had realized that he had left working at my complex and didn't return me that money. Others have also done similar to me and that with much larger amounts.

Some years ago when I had visited Canada then a person had taken me to a tap in a kitchen of a university and picked up a glass and drank water from it. The person had seen that I had bought a bottle of water and wanted to share with me that I can also drink straight from the tap. I was very impressed and highly thankful for that person's kindness to show me an option including to save my time and money.

When I read what several people in India are writing and saying related to issues then it seems to me that they're getting harmed, weaker and losing things in them that make them human. During workout at gym, some top actresses were dancing in songs on TV and I thought that when lots of people pay them for entertainment then they use that money to buy things of the best brands and go to the best places that they can. So people in general should do similar as they best can.

I've told my gym several times to hire someone who would keep racking the weights and that we've several people who can pay a bit more to hire such a person which would help us to do our workout better and to get a person a job. A trainer told me today that even in the US the celebrities also rack their weights. I don't know how correct it is what he said, however, I said that I'm in India and that I'm willing to pay for this service.

I've told them several times that let's ask members at least the weight section users if they're willing to pay a bit more to get a person to rack our weights and keep our floor cleaner overall. Perhaps, they can also do only so much and they don't want to take such things to the top management because of risking their jobs or perhaps they think that the top management wouldn't do anything about it. The trainer today also said something like that about people not having such thinking, however, I'm not exactly sure the things that he was saying.

I do wonder that how the many Indians feel about their health and fitness. Please see around and you might also wonder even if a bit given the quality of air, water, food and land and other things that we've created when we don't even have to research and develop much anything but just get and use them well for a much better level of things. I wish us best!!!

19th July 2014: Do you wish that you lived the best way a human could? Do you wish that you had the best friends a human could? If you had these then would you think to have lived an unbeatable life? I don't mean in terms of false ego or hatred of any others. I mean in terms of having maximized your human potential in our world and universe.

A top sports nutritionist of India shared that since it's made in Canada and hence whatever is written on the box will be correct because Canada will ensure that the company isn't cheating.

This is great confidence in him and perhaps also in many athletes and sports people of India about international products.

I've used a variety of supplement brands which I've found good to great for me. Today, I was going to buy some other protein brand from his shop, however, then I saw the CAN Core Athletic Nutrition PRO COMPOSITE box which says that PROTEIN STRUCTURE SIMILAR TO MOTHERS MILK, I bought it also because of that to give it a try.

I've written several times about Indian mother's milk quality in general that it could be getting harmed due to the harmful chemicals in air, water, food and land of those women.

Neither Indian suar (pig) nor sher (tiger) can test its milk for its children but humans can.Given our conditions, please share with women having babies to check their milk. I wish that it would be easy and affordable to do this test by everyone since we're humans and such things seem to already have been researched and developed by the best in our world. We've to just implement them including so that we don't start rotting people sincethey're babies and which could further worsen our conditions.

I think we should significantly improve the most critical things now so that our conditions in general aren't so bad. Regardless of the vehicles that we use or the restaurants that we go to, how do you think is the quality of air, water, vegetables, fruits, meat and other things being used in general? Do you think it's also because of the quality of people in general that we've such issues and the Indian mother's milk is affecting their quality since they're babies? Suaron ki bheed (Crowd of pigs) doesn't equal a sher (tiger) and shero ki bheed (crowd of tigers) doesn't equal a human. It's great we're human. I wish us best!

Generally, do you think that suar ko to kuch bhi kila pila do jo ki shayad sher ke saath na kaam kare aur woh sher hi na reh jaye to phir hum to insaan hai aur phir humhe apni hawa, khana aur paani mein kitna confidence hona chahiye? Humhe kya busy rakhta hai ki jo most critical things hai unki halat aisi hai? Suar, sher ya aur koi janwar to utna hi kar sakta lekin hum to insaan hai. Please share kare Indian mother aur sabke saath ki hum better products demand kare aur khareede. I wish us best!

(Generally, do you think that one can give whatever food and drinks to pig, however, which wouldn't work with tiger and then it wouldn't even remain tiger and that we're human and so how much confidence should we have in our air, food and water? What keeps us busy that the condition of the most critical things are like this? Pig, tiger and any other animal can only do so much, however, we're human. Please share with Indian mother and with all others that we demand and purchase better products. I wish us best!)

18th July 2014: Jab Indian ki maa banayegi suar to woh khayega kitna poor?

Sadak par sike bhutte ke barein mein soche ki kitne harmful chemicals uspar lage honge sikne ke pehle aur bad mein bhi khane ke pehle. Achcha hai ki hum insaan hai lekin phir bhi aise issues dekhte hai.

Hawa saaf ho to alag baat hai. Lekin aapke aas paas ki hawa kaisi hai? Wahan kitna pollution hai? Aur kaunse harmful chemicals hai jaise ki construction wale?

15th August 2014: (Please note that I'm canceling my Forever Living Products distributorship due to my experience with my sponsor and that due to FLP policy, I'm unable to easily change my sponsor for sure and I don't have time to keep trying to do that. I did find their products to be of value.) 

16th July 2014: Amazing!!! Yesterday I spoke to relatives on phone who had marriage anniversary and my little nephew was saying about not ordering fried rice while they were going to a restaurant.

Today a short while ago when I was in washroom and then having Forever Living Products, I was thinking that when Indian mothers feed children then how do the children generally feel and become like and when I got on Facebook, I saw this message!!!

If you've seen Indian street pigs then do you ever get a song play inside you that chote mote suar teri muththi mein kya hai.

3rd May 2014: Chat with a fitness model friend:

I don't know her shakti ....she is keep sending me mszes
Y what happ

Shakti Saran
you know that's what i thought


Shakti Saran
just that she tried talking to me in the comments
however i only shared generally
what a waste of life can such people be

Yes u r right shakti

Shakti Saran
they can share their proper details and then even try to talk
have a nice time!

U too shakti ignore tht kind of people have a nice day

Do you think that people are becoming like this also because of their air, water, food and land quality and that among the pigs, a pig can even be fine, however, there are also other animals and then also humans. Please share proper details or else you can read that even a well-doing fitness model says that ignore that kind of people.

15th April 2014: Rather than milk tea, I had green tea and Tropicana 100% (no sugar and preservatives) mixed fruit juice and felt nice! A while ago, I had a few Britannia NutriChoice Ragi cookies and that was also nice. I'm also trying to reduce sugar intake. Do you know that we're now also having organic sugar in market because of issues in sugar. For chocolate, I'm trying to have nicer ones including imported like Nutella due to concerns of milk quality in India.

I realize that I'll still sometimes consume milk in India, however, why not avoid it as much as possible due to possible harmful adulteration in it and that also make people aware so that the milk quality in general would improve greatly as more and more people would demand for it rather than just going on consuming what they find around them without even being sure about the adulteration level in it.

"The NGO Consumer Voice, one of the petitioners in the court, said the quantum of pesticides in fruits and vegetables in India, especially those sold in Delhi markets, was as much as 750 times the European standards.

The NGO claimed that of the five internationally banned pesticides, four were found to be common in vegetables sold here.

The move had come after some NGOs submitted survey reports that vegetables and fruits sold in the city's markets contain poisons capable of causing cancer and harming the nervous system and liver."

"Researchers are beginning to suspect that India's unusual mix of polluted air, poor sanitation and contaminated water may make the country among the most dangerous in the world for lungs."

"Delhi has turned into a pollution zone so deadly that children in the Capital have the lungs of chain-smokers, and all the associated respiratory ailments."

20th March 2014: Such people working at gym! I wish that they were doing much better and I wish them best. When I reached gym, one asked me if I want to have bananas on which I told him that we don't get bananas at home due to harmful chemicals being used to grow them. I asked him if his coach has told him to have bananas on which he told me that he doesn't have a coach now. He even said that he's not into weight training. He's the only person working at the gym.

One much elder lady told me some weeks ago that some other person who worked here last year was so good that he taught much to her that she's being able to do several exercises by herself now. This is also why I suggest everyone in general to take personal training at least until they know well enough the basics of exercises which they're going to do and that they're able to learn more by self. Of course, personal training is also of value to people with advanced levels.

Around closing time, another person comes to close the gym who seems to have more knowledge about weightlifting. So I asked him if he eats bananas on which he said that he eats a dozen daily. I asked him that where does he buy them from because of the harmful chemicals being used to grow them on which he said that he doesn't get time and so he buys from wherever.

This made me think that this is what people new to health and fitness might also learn to do. I hope that all people who work at a gym and do anything related to health or fitness for members are certified. I also hope that we can easily find shops from where unadulterated food can be purchased. I hope that would also help in these.

4th March 2014: Some comments in a group related to my experience which I've shared in

PERSON Yes I can be a part of the show Shakti Saran. We have to take a step against people who have forgotten morality.

Hi PERSON, Perhaps you mean human values when you mention morality? Human values are universal whereas morality is individual or group specific in the sense that one group can say that women covering face in front of strangers is being moral and that nobody can say anything to this if women follow this without being forced to which can also happen because that's how they're brought up to be like. Someone told me that some woman said that aurat aur gadhe to pitne ke liye hote hai when she was asked that why her son beats his wife who does a lot of work. Having food with severely harmful chemicals is something which would be considered unacceptable by all humans and that people adding severely harmful chemicals to our food for their gains is going against human values.

It seems to me that a great misunderstanding between human values and morality in several people in a place could also lead to a great decline in their ability to maximize their potential individually and as a group and hence a great decline in the quality of life overall can happen in that place. People start to do things which they justify to be acceptable on moral grounds when they're not in terms of human values. I also think that when things become very bad in this regard then most likely it'll be very difficult for them to ever improve greatly which doesn't mean that can't happen.

Moreover, it seems that people who've false pride or false confidence might be more driven by their own set of morals than human values and if there are many of them then that place will get increasingly worse and the worst thing is that the people within there might not even realize how the things are worsening just like street dogs in a very bad place would still only bark and bite each other whereas humans can be so much advanced especially when the many solutions are already there for them to utilize. Think of how many mothers are producing children without taking precautions when they know the pollution is severely harmful. Now there's a report that children in Delhi have lungs of chain smokers. How do the mothers feel about this or they've stopped feeling much thinking that what can they do? I've heard some mother say that what can she do. I wonder if she even tried doing anything much. If she was driven by human values more than morals then she might think again and again that how can she bring a life into our world when the things around her are so bad.

She could either move to elsewhere or first work to make things around her better enough for the new life. There are also many reports of severely harmful chemicals in milk and food in general. As a human, the mother would work to first ensure that the new life that she wants to bring to our world will at least have a basic humanly environment especially since there is already much information and solutions available for her to do the same and if the mother can't afford something then that mother should rather wait as a human to bring a new life. I've heard from people about bringing life into our world and then those children are severely malnourished and also diseased because the mother didn't consider much before bringing the life into our world. At least those women who're aware enough, they could be human enough and that not put new life at risk because they're highly fragile at such age and that they might carry the damage with them throughout their lives for no reason of their own.

3rd March 2014: Kai chehre dekhe. Bahut kumzore hone jaisa mehsoos hua. (Saw several faces. Felt very weak.) Metro se nikla to ek kutta peeche pad gaya. Ek aadmi wahan tha to usse baat karne laga to kutta ruk gaya. Phir mein chala gaya. (Came out of metro and a dog came behind me. There was a person there with whom I started talking and then the dog stopped. Then I left there.) 

Kutta bhi bada kumzore laga. (Dog also seemed very weak.) Metro mein tha to ek aurat baithi aur ek aadmi uske saath kadha tha. Humare row mein ek seat khali thi. (In metro, one woman sat and one man stood next to her. In our row, there was one vacant seat.) Kisi ne khade hue aadmi ke liye seat nahi banayi. Thodi der bad, maine kaha logo ko shift hone ke liye aur phir woh aadmi baith gaya. (Nobody created seat for this man. After some time, I told people to shift and then that man sat.) 

Bahut kumzori dikhi. (Saw a lot of weakness.) Kya ye bahut pollution se bhi hai? (Is it also due to a lot of pollution?) Kutte ka to phir bhi samajh mein aya lekin insaan ke saath bhi aisa. (Still understood about dog, however, even the same with human.) Kutte ki maa to nahi padh sakti lekin insaan ki to padh sakti hai. (Dog's mother can't read but human's can.) Pollution ke issue ko janna koi nai cheez bhi nahin. India mein logo ko to research bhi nahin karni sirf measure karna hai ki pollution kitna hai. World Health Organization ne already research kar ke bataya hai pollution ke bare mein. (People in India don't even have to research but only measure how much pollution is there. World Health Organization has already done research and shared about pollution.)

28th February 2014: I've called the police. They'll call back. I reside in C 711, Princess Park, Ahinsa Khand II, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad. I've told them that I keep hearing loud noise from above like also of big furniture being moved and when I go and ask the people above then they tell me that they didn't hear any noise. Someone senior told me that perhaps the people might want us to leave. I don't want to think like that. I've decided to get help from police in this regard.

I received another call from police and they suggested that I first talk to RWA and then if things don't workout then I can share with police again. 

Today when I went to the apartment above regarding loud noise then they said that they didn't make or hear any noise. So I thought that police should be able to help me in finding out from where is the noise coming. I'll talk to RWA. I've been vising apartments regarding this and I'll also do that.

Some comment in an FB group:

Shakti Saran Hi PERSON, Are you staying in an apartment complex? Have you contacted the RWA? If you've done this and there's no proper solution then I suggest to contact media regarding quality of construction issue and here being a high earthquake zone. If you can let them put sound recorder and other equipment in your apartment for noises for next several month then people can learn through the media about any weakness in construction quality and the risk to them.

27th February 2014: Someone who's close to the leadership of a major national political party for several decades told me that people might want us to leave here and so this might be happening. I don't want to think so, however, it was of value that this person told this to me. I reside in C 711, Princess Park, Ahinsa Khand II, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad.

There was loud noise like of furniture from above. When I went to the apartment above, the person said to not hear anything and that it didn't come from there. So I went to the neighboring apartment thinking that perhaps it came from there. The person there said that there was no such sound made from there. This person said "lagaiye lagaiye" when I said that I should put a sound recorder.

I'll be finding out how to detect sound and other things. This should also help me with security solutions work since it seems that others would also find it of value. Please share easy and affordable solutions to start with.

15th January 2014: To think about it, why most people even go to the gym? While commenting on someone's wall and reading comments, I just realized that only twelve people had signed in the gym register throughout the day at my apartment complex having around 200 flats. I went in around 8 PM and left around 9 PM and there was nobody there throughout that time except for the person who opens and closes it and has been hired at 10K a month as a trainer but generally seems to do nothing for most of the time (4 hours each during morning and evening). Even he's planning to leave because he wants a higher salary. This funny image also seems to have a valuable meaning! (I've removed the image to save space. It says that "I asked my trainer which machine at the gym I should use to impress beautiful women... he pointed outside and said "The ATM machine".)

9th February 2014: Google makes me feel more human when I find myself suffering from severe issues of harmful chemicals in land, food, water and air around me. I tell people that do they care about the soil in the park in which their children play that how much harmful chemicals might be in it which the children breathe in deeply? I generally don't get any responses that they're doing something greatly about this which makes me think about people in general that how come we've such severe issues when in our same world, there's also much greatness. I wish Google increasing success in making our world great!

Google Inc.’s latest acquisition—an artificial intelligence company called DeepMind—points toward a not-so-distant future when computers learn and reason the way people do. Of course, this is an evolutionary process, and there’s no neat definition of how human minds work, either. But the direction is clear–computers are increasingly able to learn from experience, to figure context into their decision making, and more.

24th January 2014: Why Fathers Really Matter

13th January 2014: Chacha Nehru Sehat Yojna in Delhi metro and much else !!!

I sms'd a team member that I would reach in 10 minutes and to go up the stairs at Gate No. 7, Rajiv Chowk metro station, Connaught Place, New Delhi and wait there. My partner had called after my sms. After talking to him, my team member called but before I could pickup the call, the phone battery ran out. I reached Gate 7 in few minutes but my team member wasn't there. I kept waiting for a while.

Then I went to the restaurant there of a friend to recharge phone battery so that I can call the team member. She was there. I told her that the she should've been at Gate 7 since I had sms'd this to her on which she said that she thought that she should come to the restaurant because some days ago I had told her that if we can't reach other on the phone then she can go there and wait.

Then I took her to Dwarka in metro. The walk in park in Sector 23 was nice. The air was much nicer than where I stay in Indirapuram. Then I took her to a client which is a nice salon. She's working with me on a network that I'm creating for spas and salons. There I charged my phone a bit. After the salon, I told her that we'll visit my relatives who stay nearby. I went back to the market to get something for them. Just as I entered a bakery, someone said my name on the TV and that I saw it was Mr. Shakti Singh Goyal. I told the same to my coworker and the bakery owner about hearing my name just as I entered the bakery. A talk show was going on TV with he being on it.

Few days ago, when I had met her in CP and that I had thought of going to washroom, I had seen KFC and went there and that I didn't want to use the washroom without paying and so I had got into the line to buy something and that for the person in front of me, the billing counter had said 267. 26th July is my birthday and I had then shared the same with my team member about the display and my birthday. Similar had happened with my international client who's now in India. I've shared the bill at Rodeo in Gurgaon as a wall photo.

Similar had happened with another person with whom I've tried doing some work related to luxury but which I've put on hold with that person at least for now. I was going to send dry fruits to this person and that my relatives had told me that they were going to some market in Delhi to buy dry fruits and that I had told them that to also get for me and that I had gone to some ATM out of several in the market to take out cash and that the four 500 INR notes which I had taken out had mentioned 726 on them which I had noticed while giving them to my uncle. I've also shared them as a wall photo.

After the bakery, I shared with my team member that such things happen I think because when we think for someone then someone thinks for us. After visiting the relatives even though I met only few people and that having nice dark chocolate pastries, we walked back to Sector 23 station. My team member likes to walk which is nice because I also like it especially when the air is nice enough.

During the metro, my team member had noticed the floor to be wet and she had asked me what's that. After I left her at Rajiv Chowk, I went again to the friend's restaurant. There I charged my phone a bit. While walking back to Gate 7 around 10 PM, a group of guys were standing nearby it and that as I reached there, they saw someone light up fire on the side and then one person loudly said Lodhi and then another person loudly and laughingly said Loda (male sex organ). Just before I entered metro, I called my partner who I had spoken to in the afternoon. He told me that today he has become dad again! While talking to him, I looked in front of me and there was a poster of Chacha Nehru Sehat Yojna in the metro. However, a person was sitting in front of it and that he spit on metro floor and then put his shoe on the spit and that somehow he didn't seem well from his face. I shared with my partner about the poster and that if I had sit in the next section then the poster was different. He said that I've become chacha (a title used to call one's dad's brother). It's nice that my partner also shared about a website project for a road construction company and which I wish would go well. I wish the several people today with me the best! I wish that my efforts on and others would be of increasing value.

4th January 2014: Jugaad or Technique!!! My team came back from lunch and one person (fresher) asked me that how I did what I did yesterday to find the solution. Another person (a little senior) said that it was jugaad. I said it wasn't jugaad but a widely-used technique to do well a type of work and then I explained.

I also said that when they went to have lunch, I went to buy and have moongfali (groundnut). I said that I kept all the chilkas (shells) in my jacket's pocket and then threw them in the dustbin in the office which I showed them. I said that this can be a widely-used technique to also keep society clean whereas if I had just thrown the shells on the road then that would've been a jugaad to just keep myself clean but a very poor solution considering all affected things including over the longer term.

Of course, jugaad doesn't always have to have a negative impact by itself, however, several times it seems to be used to come up with poor solutions considering all affected things including over the longer term. People might think of a jugaad as a hack, however, I think that something that can be called a hack is generally based on one or more good techniques.

God, I'm not an Indian street dog, pig or any other animal but human. Please help me to keep contributing with increasing value. It feels highly unfortunate to have a mother with such air, water, land pollution and food adulteration. God, please help Mother India to do increasingly well. Thank You!

31st December 2013: WOW!!! I saw dad running as an exercise for the first time. He said that it's good for health. Until his college years, he used to play sports which I've heard, however, I hadn't seen him run as an exercise until now. I wish that the Health and Fitness India network would also be of value to parents and their children together.

Also, it's nice to have Ms. Aarti Hira start working with Health and Fitness India network. Dad spoke to me about benefit of running just after I spoke to Aarti regarding starting work. I wish us a very happy and prosperous New Year!!!

28th December 2013: Suggestion for Health Minister, Delhi: Sir, 

Please make good quality Body Composition Analysis machines available all around Delhi.

Body composition is a measurement of a person’s fat mass and fat free (lean) mass. Testing body composition can be a great way to set, monitor and reach realistic health and fitness goals.

I think that this should be one of the first things to do for all people wanting to live with a healthy mind and body and which would also help the society.

This should be an easy enough and also a highly valuable thing to do including to make people aware and to bring together for improving health, fitness and society. 

4th December 2013: Some post and comments regarding protein:

PERSON1 (wall post)

Always heard that Almonds had a strong effect on brain and nervous system and is also considered a very spiritually positive food, but just read that it is also a powerhouse of proteins. A quarter-cup contains 7.62 grams—more protein than is provided by the typical egg, which contains 5.54 grams.

Shakti Saran I'm no expert on this matter, however based on general readings thanks to the human brain and to the humans making research work available to public, I would consider Calories, Protein, Carbs and Fat amounts together for each item and also all the nutrients that they contain. Regarding protein, I would also consider the bio-availability index of the different items and also whether the items contain the essential amino acids or not. I would also research on what is my protein requirement and for which I would even go to a dietitian as required.

28th November 2013: “Exercise, sleep and nutrition form the triangle of health, and all are related,” said Dr. Phyllis Zee, a professor of neurology and director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Northwestern University in Chicago.

Of more pressing interest, though, is the study’s practical message that “if you are facing a period of overconsumption and inactivity” — also known as the holidays — “a daily bout of exercise will prevent many of the negative changes, at least in the short term,” Dr. Thompson said. Of course, his study involved young, fit men and a relatively prolonged period of exercise. But the findings likely apply, he said, to other groups, like older adults and women, and perhaps to lesser amounts of training. That’s a possibility worth embracing as the pie servings accumulate.

20th November 2013: If you've high amount of chemicals in your drinking water even after using one RO then you can consider to use more ROs by connecting them to clean your water even better. Do you regularly test your water coming from RO?

Also, agar Indian Maa ka doodh kharab toh phir India kaisa banega? Sadak ke suar jaisa nahin hain, Insaan hain. How many Indians think that their mothers have done great in terms of making efforts to give them at least a basic human life of clean enough air, water, food and land? Do you think the next generation mothers in India in general would get their milk tested for harmful chemicals? Would you share with feeding mothers who you know to care about this?

How much do you care about harmful chemicals in your air, water, food and land? I wish us best!

27th September 2013: How is Indian in general because do you think how come there are so many severe issues including of cancerous pollution, low quality food and others considering the best in our world which other humans have accomplished? Mother India, kya khila pila rahe hai humhe. Mere protein powder box ka issue kab resolve hoga. Indian suar (pig) nahi hun aur protein bhi khareeda hai lekin phir bhi workout affect ho gaya hai.

Some girl having done English Hons. and MBA in HR called me while I was at gym. Phone was on silent so missed it. I called back when I left the gym. She mentioned to be watching Arnab Goswami's show. I mentioned to be seeing a street dog walking there as I was leaving the mall. She immediately correlated dog with Arnab. I said that that's highly unfortunate and then I said something like what do the many Indians think about in general and also how do they think like in general given that this so well educated person with a nice family background is immediately thinking like this. Is there also serious issues with our academic institutions in general?

I said that she could rather think to request Arnab to do a show on street animals because they don't deserve such an environment where we've created such severe issues. I asked her to write on Times Now FB page. She said that she wouldn't. I told her that she would watch Arnab's show, however, not share this when it would be of value. I told her that I would share it.

I also said something like what if our police, intelligence, administration and government are also buying top imported brand protein supplements thinking that it would help them become great because they might find food around them adulterated, however, the boxes they're getting are possibly having severe issues or even severe issues.

I've purchased from a popular online store but the box had issue about which I've called the company but they haven't responded with any solution. Mother India, agar yeh log harmful protein khayenge to suar jaise ya usse bhi worse ban sakte hai aur phir hamara kya hoga. God, please help.

Some comments on above on my FB wall:

PERSON hahahahhaha ...Shakti ...I am laughing because yes it ails all of us..and somewhere we have given in...not all of us..but most of us....this is a state of confusion our country and people are facing..and we will come out ..all so called developed countries have gone through it all and come out of it too.

Shakti Saran how easy to say all have gone through this...i would think every human also lives...but then the different ones have such different outcomes...

PERSON Nothing is easy..but then circumstances created need time to overcome...and only who has created this can make it happen..

Shakti Saran i've actually heard this several times from Indian people and i tell them well first become a great human at global level then say what would happen to india!!!

Shakti Saran nahi toh phir sadak ke kutte or suar toh bahut hai jinko dekh kar apne circumstances achche lagne lag sakte hai...lekin phir un janwaron ki bhi hawa wahi hai...

PERSON See the state of affairs in India has deteriorated to quite an extent..even people have deteriorated...but still we are better off than many in the world...

Shakti Saran I think you missed my point. It's about pursuing greatness and not feeling better that others are worse which seems a widespread thinking in India and that might also be why we hear from several people in India that people here would rather make others worse than make themselves better. Is this also why there are several street animals who're living so highly unfortunately in the severe issues created by people here that people might feel better that there are beings living much worse than them?

I don't have time to respond to this because I might have to respond for a while since this person's level of reading comprehension seems very low. I do wish that what I've shared would be of value to many people.

And regarding the GMO food, do you think that what we can control in a lab can even be much better than the alternatives in general given the scientific work is done positively. Several of the top Indian athletes and celebrities consume international nutrition supplements. One person I know, his company in USA makes nutritional supplements which Olympians from India consume. They wouldn't if the labs weren't making great products. Perhaps this person made such a comment based on where this person has been living in general where there's little great scientific work being done for progressing mankind.

27th August 2013 (2nd post today, one was in morning): A Mr. Gandhi sat next to me today!!! During morning I shared on my wall about Mrs. Gandhi and "empowerment revolution".

After that I went to for Aadhaar Card appointment where I had a range of experience some which I would share later.

After that I went to shop for a birthday gift which keeps getting returned because the person doesn't like it as much and is kind enough to share what he likes with me. After shopping, I went to meet the person at his restaurant in CP, however, he wasn't there. I didn't eat there because I wasn't carrying much cash and they only take cash. So I went to another restaurant where I probably ate several years ago. Moreover I used to eat there sometimes in USA (Atlanta, Georgia). I had first thought of going to McDonald's, however, then I saw Saravana Bhawan next to it and thought of going there because I've eaten at McDonald's over the years, however, not at all at Saravana Bhawan for years. They gave me a seat at the end of the upper floor. It seemed fully packed with another table next to me empty.

A short while later, some people sat there and were discussing big things politics and contributions. While eating, I looked at them a few times and there were positive smiles passed back and forth. So I shared about what I had written on my wall during the morning about nutrition, education, work and rest. Then we shared more. One person asked for my card on which I apologized that I wasn't carrying it then and moreover, my card is my site (I was wearing my t-shirt which mentions it). I asked his kind name and he said a Mr. Gandhi. I then shared with him that during morning, I had written on my wall about Mrs. Gandhi and food bill and about nutrition, education, work and rest. He said that he would connect with me which I look forward to and I wish them best!!!

After eating, I visited my friend's restaurant again and there he was and that we also had some great valuable discussion related to social contributions and top-level leadership. I wish him best!!!

After that, I went to get another t-shirt printed with my site, however, it didn't workout then because my t-shirt was red and that I wanted white on it which I was told can't be done using thermal printing. The shop owner did say that if I've 15 or more t-shirts then he would invest in high quality color to ensure that screen printing quality is great and that the print wouldn't come off until someone would really try to take it off.

After that, I went to easyday store in the mall where I yet again couldn't find Milkana, the low fat packaged paneer that they sell. I thought that today I would do cardio and fat burn and not weightlifting and so I bought a bottle of Gatorade and a bar of Snickers. Outside the store was a woman trying to make sale who I've seen several times trying to make sales by interacting with people around the mall. I told her that she's great that she keeps making sales effort. She said that other staff at gym thinks that she just roams around and essentially that they don't value enough what she does. Then I shared with her that what she's doing is great and that she can also gain more inputs about marketing from some things that I do like my posts on Health and Fitness India network and Chief Marketing Officer - India page and others. She said that I should tell what I think of her efforts to her team which I said I would. I thought but didn't say that much after street pigs, come forest tigers and that humans can't even be compared them and that when people say something like that then look around the lack of greatness and then keep doing your best to make increasing contributions.

Related to above woman's experience with what her staff says about her, a short while ago when I reached my apartment complex, a person (retired Army) was with me. I was wearing my pollution mask. He said that 99.99% people can't even afford proper food and that how they would buy this on which I said that I'm at least glad that we can buy planes to put on our borders and that we've to do what each of us can. What he said was like saying that why live better when others are living worse which was shocking and I wish that he would get value from what I said and that he would also care for himself better. I had complimented him when I had just met him that it's nice that he's going to gym (he was returning from a gym where I used to go before, however, I do think that he does little at gym compared to what he still could and that benefit much more without causing any harm to himself). I had earlier asked him if he used to get physical training during his Army years on which he had said that he was on the civilian side and that he was much busy with work. Today after my aerobics class, I mentioned to the trainer that it's great ther her daughter is now teaching because health and fitness would help her to do well in academics also since she's in college and that in life in general. I wish he had said something more valuable than what he said about pollution mask. I wish he would keep maximizing his human potential.

When I reached gym, the security guard asked me something like where I've been since I had left the gym for few months. This guard over a while has seemed to me to be a bit or much more unhappy with his this work.

When I entered the electronic security gate, one of their top trainers just came out there from the main workout area and he also asked something like where I've been on which I had a nice little talk with him. At the end of my workout, I saw him teach TRX during a personal training session for the first time. TRX seems awesome which I've read is also used by military personnel!!!

Just when I started my workout by getting on a treadmill, I saw the awesome aerobics trainer walk in and I felt awesome that now I can have a lot of fun while doing cardio and fat burn. Her daughter took the class today and it was very kind of the trainer to ask me how she did on which I said that she has a great teacher and that she did well!!!

Also, it was funny with Oracle today!!! I called and sms'd my Oracle student who recently has started and had said that he might come today. He didn't respond to whether he would come today or not. At gym, I saw a woman who works for Oracle and that I looked at her some different times but she never looked back at me. I had shared with her before on teaching Databases and that had nice valuable discussions on a range of things with her. Perhaps both of them were very busy.

Going back to morning during Aadhaar Card appointment, some lady was going around asking if her son's name "Ayan" was written on the form because she's illiterate. When she asked me, I asked if she has something else on which her son's name is written so that I can match the spelling on which she behaved as if she didn't understand me. I asked if she had his birth certificate on which she did. I told her to ask the person working there and when she did that, he didn't even ask her about the spelling and just said it's alright. She then asked another person and then I went to her to explain to her but she just wouldn't understand. This person who seemed to be trying to help also didn't say about spelling issue on which I mentioned again about spelling issue on which he said something like she might not understand such things. Later I heard that he was a govt. employee and that perhaps he has a lot more experience interacting with such people. I do wish she got the correct spelling. I had faced a highly unfortunate issue with my passport renewal some years because in my board exam certificate, my dad's name had a minor spelling mistake and for a short while, I had felt that an issue was being created but then it was thankfully quickly resolved.

Also during the Aadhar Card appointment, when the person working there told some much elder lady to check on the Internet about something, she asked that which place is the Internet? ("yeh kaun si jagah hai?") The person had smiled a bit and had then repeated to check on the "net" some different times and that then had told her to leave. The people outside the bank were creating a lot of commotion. They kept saying that people outside are burning in sun whereas we're getting our cards made first on which the person had said that these people have waited for several days to get their appointment and that they can also take the appointment online. When I said that perhaps they don't know about the Internet then he said that everyone knows everything, they're just doing drama ("sabko sab kuch pata hai, yeh sirf nautanki kar rahe hain"). I felt highly unfortunate for the people working there because they seemed to be trying to do well including to manage the increasing commotion and to make the cards.

I then thought that perhaps the Internet still isn't known to all, however, not being able to use the phone can't be an excuse and that what if the appointment can also be made using the phone? I didn't make my appointment and so I don't know what all went into making the appointment, however, what if the phone owner including family can be linked to the appointment so that they can be made? I wish that something like could be done to make it much simpler for the masses.  Similar to this I had shared with Mr. Gandhi and others today about using various ways and means to create valuable linkages between the different public schemes including for food, education, work, health, information and others so that people can convert their nutrition into productivity. I had a similar and more detailed discussion with my friend who's a restaurant owner in CP and also the President of an NGO about which also I discussed with him today and that mentioned that these linkages have to be a public-private partnership effort. It does seem to me that people can give up without making enough efforts and that then we should think of the greatness that has been accomplished by humans till now and that unless we're decaying overall, what all is possible by mankind.

27th August 2013: Gandhi described the welfare scheme, food security bill, as part of an "empowerment revolution" and reached out to the opposition for support.  

My thought: As the combination of nutrition, education, work and rest would improve of the masses, our society, environment and world overall should also keep improving! Best!

25th August 2013: How difficult is it for women in India in general to pursue health and fitness and that how does that also affect their children in terms of maximizing their human potential while they're in India?

Today a person in gym said that due to his stupid citizenship, he isn't able to stay in UK even though his parents stay there due to work. He recently visited there. I suggested that if he does business then perhaps he can grow it around the world. He said that he's working on some business idea. I wish him best!

Regarding little children in gym, I've been sharing online for a while that they can get hurt and that they shouldn't just roam around in the gym. Today at gym, I left the workout area and went to get water which is a distance away outside of the main floor which I like. After getting water and while going back to workout area, I heard a little child cry out loud.

There was a lady who said that he got hurt by the entrance door. His mother was inside the studio in a dance class which I saw when she came out for her child.

I've known that lady but don't interact with her much now. Some months ago she had told me about she having to do a lot including her own work and also caring for her child. I wish them the best!

He also said that with a UK passport, there wouldn't be VISA issues to travel most of the world. How many Indians who want to travel our world feel highly unfortunate due to VISA issues? If there wasn't a VISA to bother about then would a lot more Indians travel our world? Why do you think there's VISA issue for Indian people in general? What have our previous generations done and have been doing that we've such an issue when there're places in our world where people don't have such an issue? What are we doing about it?

14th August 2013: A very little girl came to a gym. I saw her playing with an empty Coca Cola bottle. I drink Coca Cola, however, this was a highly unfortunate incident. I told the trainer about it on which he said that he gave it to her. I later saw that the bottle stays in the gym which could make it even more harmful for such a little person who could touch it and then put hands in the mouth. Moreover, while she was playing with it, it was also rolling on the ground and that then she was putting it in her mouth.

I told the trainer that she's putting the bottle in her mouth which was rolling on the ground. He said that she's not his or my age to understand this. I told him that like this she could grow into a sick person and then how she would think like. I also said that even if she can't understand this now, people around her can understand this now on which the trainer didn't say anything. Her mother was also there who had come to meet someone but she didn't remove the bottle from her. I smiled at the girl and she also smiled and that I wish her best.

Jan gan ka tan suar jaisa mat banne do Bhagwan, aap ho bhagya vidhata. Jai he! Please kum kar do pollution, adulteration, koode, gadhdhe. Jai he!

10th August 2013: If you're a gym owner or fitness trainer then please take care about this: Today at gym while working out, I stepped back and that my foot went on a dumbbell. I then told my personal trainer that we shouldn't let these stay on the floor like this because people can get hurt. There was a little girl there sitting on a chair and I told him that what if she had stepped on it and fallen and hit her head on the glass mirror.

My trainer first said that it's there because he was working out on which I said that I haven't seen him working out for a while on which he then said that the dumbbells are there because of another person. The other person came to listen and I told him that somebody could've got hurt on which he didn't say anything. I asked him whether he practiced some martial arts that I taught him yesterday since he and my trainer had seemed very interested in learning martial arts from me yesterday.

This person said that he couldn't practice martial arts because he had to work night shift. He said that he has to work two days night per week. I suggested him to read my blog post which can also be found on Google by searching for "bpo health issues" This person works in tech support and that my post should be of value to anyone who's having to work like this changing between day and night shifts on a frequent basis. Please share with your friends! Best!

Amazing that as I'm writing the above, someone commented on my cousin sister's little baby's group message! I wish her great air, food, water and environment. How many Indian people get that? What do you do about that including for your future generations? How do you feel as an Indian? Best!

5th August 2013: Exercise may improve the mood of pregnant women and help to reduce levels of fatigue reports new research published in Psychology & Health The study, by Anca Gaston and Harry Prapavessis at the University of Western Ontario, examined whether a four week exercise intervention programme would result in improvements in the psychological well-being of previously inactive pregnant women. The results were clear, with participants reporting significant improvements in their mood during the programme. They also saw reduced levels of fatigue, suggesting that pregnant women should be encouraged to engage in regular exercise to improve both psychological and physical well-being.

While postpartum mood disorders like postnatal depression are widely recognised, rates of depression, anxiety and fatigue are actually higher during pregnancy than following pregnancy.

Possible complications resulting from depression during pregnancy include:

  • Insufficient weight gain;
  • Increased substance use;
  • Premature birth;
  • Small babies; and,
  • Reduced intention to breastfeed.

15th July 2013: Most shoppers base their food choices on price rather than nutritional value, with lower socio-economic status consumers more likely to eat high energy-dense foods such as sugary drinks, said Marion Hetherington, a professor of biopsychology at the University of Leeds.

By lowering salt, sugar and calorie content of their foods independently, industry will not face competitive pressure caused by only some producers providing more healthy foods in the marketplace, she said.

8th July 2013: If you don't have as much money as before because of Rupee's decreasing value then at least spend time on health and fitness which might not even cost as much money to do and that it should also help you earn better. "Double whammy: Rupee at 61, markets crash 200 points" Please share this with your family and friends! All the Best for your health and wealth!

7th July 2013: My comment: Please let me share one thing. From my experiences that I've had over the several years since I've been meditating daily, I find meditation to help me become a better human and also feel a connection to something greatly beyond human. However, I do wonder that if a person would meditate with wishes that are against the human values then can meditation also make that person better at accomplishing those wishes?

4th July 2013: God, I've heard of stories of long ago of people in India being able to convert energy to matter. Why didn't you inspire them to make India great or did you or what happened and can you please help now?

Yesterday, my cousin visited who has cleared her medical exams in USA and now will be going there soon for a job. She mentioned about the variety of very healthy options for eggs being sold there.

What's the quality of egg of Indian in general? Please help us to have the best quality eggs in India also. I read somewhere that the yellow in egg sold in India might also be due to chemicals fed to chickens and if so then how harmful are those chemicals?

I request all to read about the highly valuable efforts of this human including for inspiration to make our world a much greater place. On this 4th of July, thank you very much for your efforts that I've technologies and solutions to share this with our world and I wish for humans to maximize their potential. Best!

2 July 2013: How many Indians get milk from market or consume milk based products from market that have lesser harmful adulteration than the milk being had by these piglets?

What do you do to ensure that your milk from market and milk based products from market are without harmful adulteration? What all harm do you think can milk adulteration cause you?

1st July 2013: Highly unfortunate! Please take care doctors: Healers ignore own health

25th June 2013: How many Indian people do you know who're like this? They watch news events with seemingly so much interest as if they're going to do something about those events, however, they don't and hence waste human potential which could've even been applied well towards reducing such news events. If you know such people then what do you do so that they do better? I wish that my efforts would be of value in the same. I try to gain specific news inputs which can help me in making things better for our society, environment and world. It's possible that any news event would be of value to someone and so we do need its news. However, are you maximizing your human potential? Best! Shakti

17th June 2013:

Do these suicides flag a potential mental health emergency in India? Although critical of the sensationalism of stray, extraordinary cases of suicide, Mathew Varghese, professor and head of psychiatry, NIMHANS, says though there are many impulsive suicidal attempts, not all are due to depression. “Suicides in teenagers and young adults are possibly due to change in the social fabric of our society and much more complex in causation. For example, causes may vary from performance expectations, loss of family support and communication, urbanisation, poverty, loss of desired objects and so on.

25th May 2013:

Please don't get harmed and please also help others as and when you can. A friend came to the gym looking for me because he had urgent matter to discuss. I changed my workout routine to leave early and that while working out at a machine, I saw a woman using the seated chest press machine wrongly which could've seriously harmed her since her shoulders were lifted up while holding the handles and pressing them because the handles on the seated chest press machine were very high for her when they should've been at chest level. I've seen her at gym for over an year but never really spoken to her. I excused myself to tell her that it seems that she's not properly using the seated chest press machine. She also said that she feels the same. We tried to increase the seat's height but it was at max. She told me that the trainer had told her that she can use it. If you go to a gym which charges a lot of money and also seems to have quality equipment then it might still be possible that you're not getting proper inputs from the trainers. You can think of getting personal training from qualified trainers for not getting hurt and for making improvements. Suar jaise na bane. (Don't become like pig.) Sher jaise bhi kyun. (Why even like tiger.) Insaan achcha hai! (Human is good!) Aisi Indianness kitni? How much is such Indianness? Become Best.

Amazing that after talking to my friend, I reached home and saw missed calls from my friend above and also from another woman who I had tried to help a lot before and that I had stopped talking to her for a while because she had started developing serious feelings for me when I had already requested her to not do that. I spoke to her and told her about my friend's serious matter and about the woman above that others might take advantage of you and also let you get harmed you when you're nice to them and that I'm not like others and so I rather stopped talking to her. Please take care when you join a gym. Moreover, I had picked up my phone to call another person when I saw the missed calls and the person who I was going to call had recently asked me about this woman that if I'm talking to her on which I had said that I'm like this and so I'm not like that and so I'm not in order to not let that woman get harmed. I wish all of them the best! 

17th May 2013:


"We have found that Indian population is predisposed to obesity at a younger age and diabetes is a growing menace. The study will be ethnic-specific. We will conduct the study in south, central and north India," said Deep Goel, director, bariatric surgery, BLK Super Speciality Hospital.

"With the help of various institutions, we will start the study in a couple of months," Goel said.

The detailed study across the country on diabesity (diabetes plus obesity) will be supported by University of Dresden, Germany and Beijing Genomics Institute of China. BLK Super Speciality Hospital in the national capital is the nodal centre in India for the study.

According to the doctors, mostly affluent urban Indians are now obese and obesity is increasing rapidly among urban school children.

Indians are more vulnerable to diabetes because genetically they have a higher percentage of body fat to muscle compared to Europeans.

As per the doctors, the fat is usually deposited around the abdomen, where it interferes with insulin and increases sugar levels in the blood, causing diabetes in people with a low body mass index.

The study will also discuss about safety, durability of diabetes recovery and long- term outcome of surgical diabetes therapy.

From a PDF document on site, 

I've been adding information on how to detect adulterants in food: 

Below, you can view images with details on Reagents, Apparatus and Precautions for Detecting Adulterants in Food. We should make these available as a kit in each apartment complex and colony which would help the residents easily do the tests. If one person finds an issue with some food then that person can also notify others as best as possible.

We can also print and make it available to each apartment complex and colony. 

We can share with Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) to take leadership in this regard which would help all the people including our future generations. 

Kindly read Food Adulteration Hindi English Health Fitness India one-page PDF document and share (online or print) it with others if you like.

Thank You! Best! Shakti
