Berhati-hati menyebarkan maklumat..check those amazing claims.

Biasanya kita suka menyebarkan maklumat yang hampir sama dengan apa yang kita yakini, walaupun maklumat tersebut tidak sohih. Contohnya maklumat yang telah beberapa kali saya terima mengenai Cancer yang kononnya berdasarkan sumber Johns Hopkins University. Biasanya ia bermula begini:

Email Hoax: "Cancer Update From John Hopkins"

Updated April 2009
Mythbusting at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center
Information falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins called, "CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS" describes properties of cancer cells and suggests ways of preventing cancer.  Johns Hopkins did not publish the information, which often is an email attachment, nor do we endorse its contents.  The email also contains an incorrect spelling of our institution as "John" Hopkins; whereas, the correct spelling is "Johns" Hopkins. For more information about cancer, please read the information on our web site or visit the National Cancer Institute's web site at  Please help combat the spread of this hoax by letting others know of this statement.

Email Hoax Regarding Freezing Water Bottles and Microwave Cooking
The Internet is flooded with messages warning against freezing water in plastic bottles or cooking with plastics in the microwave oven. These messages, frequently titled “Johns Hopkins Cancer News” or “Johns Hopkins Cancer Update,” are falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins and we do not endorse their content.
Freezing water does not cause the release of chemicals from plastic bottles.

Cancer Research UK: Hoax email about cancer treatment and causes

We've had quite a few complaints about this email. It says that cancer treatment won't help and may even cause harm. It goes on to say that heating food in microwave ovens will give people cancer. People have been taken in because the email sounds official and says the information comes from an American University called Johns Hopkins.

Overall, the email is rubbish and we’re very sorry that people with cancer have been upset by it. We hope it won’t worry you any more after you’ve read this.

Subject: Facts on Cancer

Facts on Cancer

  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, gastrointestinal 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 cel ls 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 color. Better alternative is Bragg’s amino or sea 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 soy 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 fruit 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. T o obtain live e nzymes 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. 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 becomes putrefied 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, Florescence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs, etc.) to enable the bodies 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.

Things to avoid in your kitchen:
a. No plastic containers in micro.
b. No water bottles in freezer.
c. No plastic wrap in microwave.
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 cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, 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.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Pedoman AlQuran 100

Sentiasalah mengenang pelbagai nikmat yang diberikan Allah kepada kita. Ingatlah janji kita untuk sentiasa taat kepada perintah Allah dan Rasul. Allah mengetahui isi hati manusia.

Dan kenanglah nikmat Allah (yang telah dikurniakanNya) kepada kamu serta ingatlah perjanjianNya yang telah diikatNya dengan kamu, ketika kamu berkata: "Kami dengar dan kami taat (akan perintah-perintah Allah dan RasulNya)" Dan bertaqwalah kamu kepada Allah, kerana sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mengetahui akan segala (isi hati) yang ada di dalam dada.

We don’t need the costly Sealegs

Dear Editor,

We don’t need the costly Sealegs.

I read with trepidation the statement by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad
Zahid Hamidi that Malaysia will be the first nation in the world to own
the “Amphibious Sealegs”. (Saturday 21st November)

I don’t know what is the big deal about being the first to purchase such
costly crafts but the Minister need to be informed that it well known
that Sealegs have been around for some time and some foreign governments
has already purchased it.

We should not overlook the fact that the boat is not fully amphibious.
Unlike other amphibious crafts such as hovercrafts, the Sealeg is not an
all-terrain vehicle. Their land transport capability is limited to
proper, hard and relatively smooth terrain.

By virtue of its wheel system, the craft is not suitable for marshes,
muddy beaches, swamps, soft sandy beaches, rocky beaches or soft soil
which characterise most of our sea, rivers and lakes. Therefore the
amphibious capability is very limited and in many cases useless.

I would be very sceptical therefore that the so-called amphibious
capability of the boat will be of any use to our special forces who
definitely require landings in inhospitable terrains during their

If the Sealegs are purchased for either the civilian or military
applications, I am afraid that in most cases the water craft can only be
used in its water-borne mode. In that case the amphibious capability will
become white elephants. These same water-borne functions and roles could
be easily and cheaply carried out using normal boats which can be
purchased for a fraction of the cost of the Sealegs.

The Sealeg is thus great as rich men’s toys but out of place in any
government agency.

Baba Ali: Mahalnya Majlis Perkahwinan

Lagi satu tazkirah bersahaja dari Baba Ali kali ini mengenai kos perkahwinan/walimah yang mahal dan menyusahkan.

BABA ALI: $25,000 Muslim Weddings!!

Hendak Ke Mana Anda? 8

Masa untuk berfikir sebenarnya ada.. tetapi kita
sendiri yang menyemakkannya dengan pelbagai hal dan

Banyak masa luang tetapi kita habiskan dengan perkara
yang tidak bermanfaat bagi kita.

Kalaulah  boleh kita kurangkan semak dalam kehidupan
..  kalaulah boleh kita kurangkan kesibukan diri
..kalaulah kita kurangkan frequency menekan
punat remote-control TV atau VCD player atau stereo
..kalaulah kita boleh kurangkan kehadiran
kita di pelbagai pesta dan karnival...
..kalaulah kita boleh kurangkan berbual kosong di Facebook,
Friendsters atau YM, Skype dan seumpamanya.

...pasti kita ada masa memikirkan masa depan dan hala
tuju hidup kita.
...pasti kita boleh membezakan cara hidup kita dengan
orang  kafir.
...pasti kita  boleh mengenalpasti beza hidup manusia
dengan haiwan
...pasti kita boleh keluar dari rutin atau kitaran
“makan ..cari makan.. BERHIBUR.. tidur..”

Mari kita renungkan tentang perbezaan cara haiwan dan
cara manusia:

Jika difikirkan betul-betul perbezaan utama di antara
manusia dengan haiwan ialah:
.. mereka ada otak tapi tiada akal…mereka hidup hanya
mengikut nafsu dan naluri (instinct) mereka sahaja. 

Naluri  haiwan dan unggas telah diprogramkan oleh
Allah yang Maha Pencipta untuk melakukan apa yang
sepatutnya dilakukan. 

Naluri inilah yang membolehkan haiwan misalnya:
-    menyayangi,melindungi dan mempertahankan anak
-    bertindak  secara berkumpulan tanpa memerlukan
arahan  dari ketua, 
-    tahu menjejaki langkah mereka sendiri,  mempunyai
sistem kommunikasi dan deria yang termaju. 

Mereka makan apabila lapar, membunuh jika perlu  dan
mengawan untuk survival mereka. 

Naluri inilah yang membolehkan  burung-burung tahu
menganyam sarang mereka yang kompleks,  boleh
mengembara  beribu batu tanpa sesat .    Semua
keupayaan yang menakjubkan  ini adalah naluri,instinct
yang diwahyukan Allah. 

Jika diteliti, kita akan mendapati tidak ada cara bagi
haiwan memperoleh  keupayaan hebat ini selain daripada
diwahyukan atau diajarkan oleh Allah.  Oleh itu,
kehebatan binatang membayangkan kehebatan dan
keagungan Allah.

Kalau kita boleh luangkan masa dari bergosip, kalau
kita boleh kurangkan chatting dan YM, kita mungkin ada
lebih masa depan komputer.  Dengan masa luang itu,
cuba  layari laman web Harun Yahya yang mengajak kita
berfikir, antaranya mengenai  keajaiban penciptaan
haiwan sebagai bukti keagungan Allah Yang Maha


Semoga Allah memberi kita masa untuk memikirkan kehebatan dan keagungan-Nya.

Pedoman AlQuran 99

Nikmat Allah terbesar kepada kita ialah Agama Islam yang cukup sempurna dan lengkap, satu-satunya jalan hidup, agama yang diredhai-Nya. Hargailah nikmat ini.

...Pada hari ini, Aku telah sempurnakan bagi kamu ugama kamu, dan Aku telah cukupkan nikmatKu kepada kamu, dan Aku telah redakan Islam itu menjadi ugama untuk kamu...

Walaupun kita selaku manusia diberikan akal oleh
Allah, kita jarang mahu menggunakannya untuk berfikir
dengan mendalam,  untuk bertanya kepada
diri kita sendiri erti kehidupan: “... HENDAK KE MANA

Kita TIDAK ADA MASA untuk memikirkannya.
Kita TIDAK MAHU untuk memikirkannya.
Kita MENGELAK daripada memikirkannya.

Pelbagai cara dibuat, secara sedar atau tidak sedar
untuk MENGHALANG kita dari memikirkannya.

Apa yang menyebabkan kita lalai? Apa yang melalikan
kita? Kenapa kita tidak ada masa? 

Apa di sana ada perancangan musuh Islam untuk melalai
dan melalikan kita??

Terang dan jelas bagi kita, salah satu sumber utama
ialah...HIBURAN..Kita dilalikan dan dilalaikan dengan
hiburan yang berpanjangan.. 

Hampir keseluruhan hidup kita  diselubungi, dihantui,
dikelabui oleh hiburan. 

Untuk berhibur kita perlukan set tercanggih..

-    Kita sanggup bergadai bergolok untuk mempastikan
rumah kita mempunyai set TV, Hi-Fi, DVD paling

Tidak cukup dengan saluran TV percuma...
-    kita merasa perlu pula  untuk melanggan puluhan
saluran satelit berbayar..

Untuk pastikan kita tidak perlu berfikir dalam
-    Kita berlumba melengkapkan peralatan audio paling
mahal dalam kereta, lengkap dengan DVD player, agar
anak-anak kita tidak terlepas rancangan hiburan
kegemaran mereka.

Tidak cukup dengan itu...
-    Kita penuhkan fikiran dengan pelbagai rancangan
import; filem Hollywood, American Idol, Survivor, Fear
factor, Extreme Makeover etc ,

-    Kita serabutkan hidup kita dengan rancangan hiburan
tempatan, ada yang diciplak 90%.-  Malaysia Idol,
Akademi Fantasia, Jangan Lupa Lirik, Muzik-muzik,  Mencari
Cinta etc.

Jika rancangan drama tempatan tidak cukup menarik...

-    Kita semakkan hidup kita dengan drama dan telenovela
dari Amerika Selatan, Filipina, Indonesia, Thailand

Agar kita tengelam dalam alam fantasi tanpa perlu

-    Kita biarkan isteri, suami dan anak-anak  kita
dibuai dengan produk-produk Bollywood yang tidak

-    Kita ajak keluarga kita lepak di Padang dengan
Konsert Jom Heboh biarpun Mufti mengharamkannya..
ahh! pedulikan itu semua!

Sekiranya kita ada sedikit masa luang untuk berfikir,
orang lain sudah menjadualkan kita untuk berhibur...

-    Pelbagai konsert telah diatur seolah-olah secara
berjadual sepanjang tahun, agar kita tidak ada masa
untuk berfikir lagi...  konsert Hari Kebangsaan, Jom
Heboh, Raya, tahun baru Cina, Deepavali, Keputeraan,
Citrawarna, Krismas, Tahun Baru dan pelbagai lagi

-    Hidup kita diprogramkan dengan pelbagai Majlis
anugerah dari masa ke semasa, Anugerah Industri Muzik,
Oscar, Pesta Filem, Juara Lagu, Penyanyi Popular,
Bintang Pujaan, Pelakon Terhebat, dan seribu satu
macam lagi majlis.

Maka di mana ada masa untuk kita berfikir?

Tidak hairanlah jika kitaran rutin hidup kita nerkisar
di sekitar.. makan..cari makan.. BERHIBUR.. tidur..

Bilakah kita boleh keluar dari kitaran rutin ini?

Pedoman AlQuran 98

Bantu-membantu, tolong menolonglah dalam membuat kebajikan, kebaikan dan amalan taqwa.  Jangan bantu-membantu untuk berbuat dosa, maksiat, permusuhan dan pencerobohan.

Dan hendaklah kamu bertolong-tolongan untuk membuat kebajikan dan bertaqwa, dan janganlah kamu bertolong-tolongan pada melakukan      dosa       (maksiat)     dan pencerobohan.                                                                      [Surah AlMaidah: 2]

Pastinya rutin harian kita berbeza dengan rutin
kehidupan haiwan, atau dengan manusia yang bukan

Sepatutnya berbeza. Sewajarnya berbeza.

Kadang-kadang dalam kesibukan hidup ini, kita tidak
sempat untuk berfikir isu-isu begini. 

Kita sibuk dan kita disibukkan atau kita menyibukkan
diri kita sendiri! 

Kita mungkin sibuk kerana kita hanya berfikir tentang
'cari makan atau mencari duit untuk makan dan perkara
yang berkisar disekitarnya .. kerjaya, kontrak, naik
pangkat, perniagaan, kebun...'.  

Itu menjadi agenda utama hidup kita seharian. Itu yang
terdetik di fikiran kita apabila kita membuka mata di
waktu pagi.  Itu juga mungkin yang menjadi bahan
lamunan kita ketika hampir melelapkan mata.

Kita mungkin disibukkan atau menyibukkan diri dengan
bahan hiburan yang tiada penghujung. Buka mata pasang
radio.. sibuk dengar lagu, masuk kereta.. sibuk dengar
musik, masuk ofis.. sibuk dengar gossip,  balik..dalam
kereta.. sibuk lagi dengar lagu.., malam.. sibuk
tengok TV, tengok wayang  dan pelbagai lagi..   

Masa bilalah boleh kita peruntukkan sedikit masa untuk
memikirkan perkara yang besar dan penting bagi kita? 

Sambil anda berada di depan komputer, rehatkan mata
anda.  Pejamkan mata dan bayangkan jawapan bagi
persoalan ini.  Sambil anda berada di dalam
pengangkutan awam, pejamkan mata anda dan jawab
persoalan ini.  Ketika anda di rumah sebelum tidur dan
cuba melelapkan mata, bayangkan  seketika persoalan di
bawah.  Sambil anda memandu, perlahankan sedikit hi-fi stereo kereta anda
dan bayangkan bagaimana kita boleh mendapatkan jawapan
kepada persoalan ini.

“Apa beza hidupku dengan kehidupan haiwan? Berbezakah
hidupku dengan haiwan?”
“Apa beza hidupku dengan hidup orang kafir? 
Berbezakah hidupku dengan orang kafir??” 

“ Hendak ke mana aku sebenarnya dalam hidup ini?”
" Ke mana aku selepas matiku nanti? " 

Pedoman AlQuran 97

Bila buat janji, pastikan dipenuhi..

Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, penuhi serta sempurnakanlah perjanjian-perjanjian..
