Mosquito Essence

I've got this article from one of the biggest forum in my country and is written in my own language. I try to translate it in English in order that can be reviewed by everyone who know much about mosquito essence. The person who wrote the article confessed that he formerly worked at one of mosquito essence company in Indonesia. However, because he never reveal his indentity, it is difficult for us to believe his honesty.


How often do you use mosquito repellent? What is its brand? What kind of it do you have? How much potent is it? Those are questions which come up when we talk about mosquito repellent. However, many person often do not ask about its safety against our life. Honestly, there are no mosquito repellents in Indonesia that are really potent and safe.

The basic principle that must be understood by everyone when using mosquito repellent is that the substance made of it is poisonous, and in fact there are no safe-poisons. I was sad to see false advertisements of repellents in the TV and other medias. Do you know about the newest of Baygon advertisement promoting Blue Baygon which is claimed not making someone cough, with its fresh fragrant? The advertisement is really exagarate / excessive and misleading, because by the ad, people thinks they are free of staying in the room when the repellent is spraying.

Baygon contains 2 main poisons, that are Propoxur and transfluthrin. Propoxur is the prohibited compound karbamat. One of its mixture, MIC, had killed thousands of people and caused nerves damage thousand hundreds of other person in the Bhopal case in India. Its use has been prohibited in the world because it is strongly suspected contain carsinogenic substance. Whereas, transfluthrin is relatively safe at this time.

I ever work in a factory that make propoxur more than 1.5 years so I know much about this. I ever poisoned propoxur just because I touch it by hand, although my hand wore gloves. I caught a terrible fever for more than 7 days. What effects will someone got if he breath small amount of it everyday?

The mosquito repellent HIT which promotes itself as a potent and cheap mosquito repellent is indeed a little more potent from Baygon, but it is also more dangerous because it is not only use Propoxur but also DDVP or dichlorvos, the chlorine descendants's substance chlorine that has been banned to use since many years ago. Cheaper but more dangerous, how can you choose one of them?

Whereas other mosquito repellent like green-Cap Baygon, Vape, Raid and Mortein are indeed non-propoxur and non-DDVP but their capability to dissipate mosquitos is very doubtful, they are only effective fighting Aedes mosquitoes but they can not handle Culex mosquitoes sp (mosquitoes which come everynight in our house).

The tender fragrant of aerosol mosquito repellent and its spray edition should precisely become the warning that we might not be in the room when the smell of fragant is still exist, approximately for 1 hour.

Then what kind of repellent we must use? None of them are suggested. They are all the same, not only spray, but also mosquito repellent burnt and electric, they are all dangerous. The use of mosquito repellent by means of burnt or electrically must be in the room with good air circulation in order to reduce the proportion of the poisons mixed with oxygen in the room.

How about mosquitos cream repellent such as Autan, Sari Puspa / Soffell or Lavender? For your information: Ketiganya mengandung racun bernama Diethyltoluamide atau DEET.

How about mosquitos cream repellent such as Autan, Sari Puspa / Soffell or Lavender? For your information: The Three Of Them contained poison named Diethyltoluamide or DEET.

DEET this was very corrosive, Autan could not be kept in forum PVC plastic sachet
PVC or iron because in a week, DEET will erode his layer. Imagine when it often hit our skin?
So once more happens the public's lying through the advertisement anti-mosquitoes creams that they are soft for skin, nourishes with Aloe Vera, and other moisturizer. With those moisturizer, they are still dangerous and you are not allowed using them for tender and sensitive skin or fo children below 2 years.

what must we do then? The only safe way is back to nature. At night, we are safe to use mosquito net, and in the afternoon, we use electricity racket. Mosquito repellent should only be used when the mosquito disturbance is very intense and we can not controll them again. Use mosquito repellent with care and do not think it is safe. Choose mosquito repellent which has smallest poison-content.

How To Beat The Cancer

After years of telling people chemotherapy is the only way to try and eliminate cancer, John Hopkins is finally starting to tell you there is an alternative way.
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

a. Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.
By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE WEST MADE US 2 CHANGE FROM SEA 2 WHITE IODISED SALT )
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus . By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.
A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.
About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.
Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells.
Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.
He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cell of the body.
Instead, he recommends using glass, such as CorningWare, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.
You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Health Supplement Can Cause Cancer


By Maggie Fox

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two men seeking to boost sexual performance and grow bigger muscles instead ended up with advanced prostate cancer after taking "herbal" supplements, U.S. doctors reported on Tuesday.

They said many supplements marketed as "safe" and "natural" could contain unknown and potentially dangerous ingredients, and noted that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has little authority to regulate them.

"Physicians need to ask their patients not only about the prescription drugs they may be taking, but -- perhaps even more importantly -- about the over-the-counter drugs and supplements, which may have a profound impact on certain health conditions," Dr. Claus Roehrborn, chairman of urology at the University of Texas Southwestern medical school, said in a statement.

Roehrborn's team became concerned about what they call herbal/hormonal dietary supplements, or HHDSs, after two men developed aggressive and incurable prostate cancer within months of taking the same supplement.

They analyzed the product, which they did not name for legal reasons, and found it contained two hormones -- testosterone and estradiol. When they tested it on tumor cells in the lab, they found it fueled the growth of prostate cancer cells more potently than testosterone alone, they reported in the journal Clinical Cancer Research.

"We filed an adverse event report with the FDA who issued a warning letter. The manufacturer responded by removing this HHDS product from the market," the researchers wrote.

"Individuals use HHDS for self-improvement, failure or distrust of conventional medicine, and because they believe that, these natural products are safe and drug-free," they wrote.

The researchers searched Web sites promoting such products and found they promised "'fountain of youth,' maintenance of a 'youthful' heart, relief of stress, and improvements in mood disturbances, stamina, energy, strength and virility."

The patients, a 67-year-old white man and a 51-year-old black man, have both survived but have extensive cancer that has spread throughout their bodies.

"Unlike prescription and over-the-counter drugs, the law does not require nutritional supplements to undergo pre-market approval for safety and efficacy," the researchers wrote.

"The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in 1994 (DSHEA) allows HHDS manufacturers to assume the sole responsibility for ensuring the effectiveness and safety of their products. Thus, the current Food Drug Administration regulatory system provides little oversight or assurance that HHDS will have predictable pharmacological effects or even that
product labels provide accurate information to consumers."
