Are Vitamins Useless? July 16, 2014

Vitamins, in the artificial form, can never replace organic food. But when in times of urgency, we would definitely need the supplements to temporarily boost our immune systems. But ultimately, as we recover, food will be the main and only source of nutrition. I have been reading about nutrition because I do not believe that medicine can heal a body. It can ease the symptoms but eventually it’s the body that is fighting the disease. So healthy intake of nutirients from clean food sources is actually a long term solution to health. Not the vitamins in the synthetic form. A healthy happy mind also gives the body and soul a brilliant tone. Studies have shown that being kind and happy actually makes the body more alkaline, hence less prone to diseases which thrive in acidic biological environments. Medicine and other pharmaceutical products actually cannot solve problems permanently and in singularity. It must be accompanied by a healthy mind and body that is derived from organic forms and clean physical surroundings. It can ease your pain in order for the body to recuperate. But it is ultimately your immune system that counts. -@karen_fu

Are Vitamins Useless?

Are vitamin pills even necessary? – The Week

A recent long-term study of more than 400,000 people concluded that “most vitamin supplements [have] no clear benefit” and warned that excess vitamin E and beta-carotene may actually weaken the immune system’s ability to kill cancer cells. “The case is closed,” the study authors wrote. “Enough is enough.”

Is it ethical to sell a product which is in general a simple placebo?

In the Wizard of Oz, the fake wizard gives the Cowardly Lion, a horrible tasting concoction. He tells the lion that this “formula” will give him courage. The lion drinks the horrible drink and the wizard asks him how he feels. The lion replies, “Full of courage.”

So, we who spend from a few to hundreds of dollars on vitamins may also be said…

Why Daring To Change in Chinese – a note to a friend, which I think it’s worth the share. Hopefully in the year of the Horse, we could come to terms to certain issues that aren’t hard to solve if we would just change ourselves even by the little everyday:

‘刚才翻照片,看到以前刚买的平板电脑时试用软件所写的字。

I was just flipping through the photos and saw a finger written piece of Chinese words that was written I had just bought my mobile device.

字句不是很好,不过,我喜欢用手指写的字体。随手寄过去给你。

The lines aren’t fantastic but I enjoy using my finger to write them. Sending one off for your perusal.

我很相信博爱。它是一种需要双重交通,互相联系,心连心的精神才

I genuinely believe about universal compassion. It is a spirit that requires a two way traffic, a heartfelt sincerity to

可以源远流长,发扬光大。每个人如果会这么想,

promote such spirit of love to as far as possible and as long as possible, if not eternity. If everyone had a mind to do so,

世界将会简化很多不必要的烦恼,这世界也会有真正的和平。

the world would definitely be a simpler place sans the complicated troubles, this world would also have a true peace.

相信博爱的人,爱人与物,有宽宏大量的心。有爱心的人才有幸福。

Those who believe in universal compassion, fraternity and love, love people and objects around them; bearing a generous heart and mind. People who such love are ones who truly blessed.

即使是有人欺人害,另一端也会有人善仁爱之志士前来相助。

Even though when people may bully and harm, on the other end there will be gracious and gallantly kind people who would come to the rescue.

烂字一篇,不过希望自己的中文可以逐渐提升。没有胆子,没有希望。

Unrefined Chinese characters on this page, but hopefully my Chinese will gradually improve to a greater height. No guts, no hope.

没有希望,没有成功。真面有爱心的人,往往能创奇迹。这也是为什么我立下那片英文的博客.

No hope, no success. True face of love is always capable of miracles. That is why I set up an English blog of my own.’ – @Karen_Fu

Although there are efforts to curb foreigners, I think we need to focus on curbing those who are creating trouble here. That distinction is far more important than just curbing any foreign nationals. Trouble such as ostracizing the locals via means of bullying. If we fail to do this, the social make up of this country will go into a very rough one which is currently in the process of negative change. Regaining ground for what we had — a fully integrated, national identity revived, cohesive and very kind society of many came to envy us. It is this essence that we are one of the safest countries to live in and the most peaceful and harmonious one. I hope in the year of the Horse we will gain hold and achieve this. No citizen will gain from social enclaves and an overtly materialistic society where money and status controls the righteous mind. Be sure that such negative social change will see us all in gradual doom with social breakdown between people for various kinds of positive relationships, like those at home, school and work. I could romp on with examples but I hope I don’t need to. We need leaders with guts to spit the dirt out honestly and dare to flip very mercenary people whose intentions are for self greed. Hopefully in the next two years we will find them. – @Karen_Fu.
