Have we negotiated hunger with leisurely demise?


Let’s dream a date. There is a candle lighting the table or a part of the heart. There is wine, the elegance of the table setting, slow music, remarkable ambience, flawless food presentation, appetizing aroma, delectable tastes that liquefies down your gullet. But the chief component is love. If we yank away the key influence which is “love” the setting gets morbid also does the food and the ambience.


Food! ignites all our senses of touch, smell, taste, hearing and sight but….

The underbelly of food after the green revolution was announced, has been meeting the demand of hunger. Yet what also transported were pesticides, fungicides, storage and ripening chemicals.

The agricultural industry is huge and very valued

During President Jimmy Carter’s time in office, the federal pesticide act went through further narrowing. Pesticide manufacturers and distributors were not glad about this; hence stock was traded off to other shores.
President Carter was against the export of banned pesticides from the US to third world countries. However he had a country to run and also was losing his popularity.

Invite change, small steps giant leap for mankind

Ace Infiniti along with agriculturist Anthony Singh and food evangelist Param Natarajan have done some extensive research to bring to our patrons the reality of what we consume.
Do we know what we are feeding ourselves with?

Have we negotiated hunger with leisurely demise?

Preserves

Vegetables and fruits cultivated for huge preserve companies are often are taken for production much later, subject to the availability of their processing facilities. Hence the produce is either intoxicated with storage agents or get inferior when it is ready to move to processing. The process of booking and shipment is delayed long enough to lead a stench.

Meat, Fish & Dairy

Chicken

Chicken is the most consumed and loved meat, its said to be safe for consumption since it is classified under white meat.

The caging system
The chicken farmers follow a battery cage system or multi peer cage system hence the birds are trained not to move. Water and feed are auto processed into the cage.

The cocktail
To increase body weight, the chicken is allowed to consume appetizer stimulants with components of arsenic and strychnine. These chemicals were also a part of the banned tonic in the 80s for kids to increase appetite by Bayer.

The broiler chicken goes through 3 cycles of induced chemicals. At the start, they are given antibiotics then a starter mash and a finisher mash. The finisher mash weans off the chemicals, however nobody certifies if the finisher mash has been administered.
With sparse resources the farmer is hardly educated on the usage, duration and measure of antibiotics specified to their livestock.

Fish

Fresh water fish are carnivorous, the ROHU and Cutela for example. They are fed with the waste of chicken or chicken scraps. They are also administered with growth stimulators and disease disruptors. This is done by adding them into the water, increasing the weight and faster growth in a shorter period of time.

Salt has been prescribed for preservation of fish through the centuries. Yet, today ammonia is a choice refrigerant for modern environmentally friendly refrigeration systems across the fishery cold chain. From catch to consumer, ammonia refrigeration is used in the production of ice, to refrigerate seawater, refrigerate compartments and to cool cold stores, ensuring food safety, shelf life and appearance.

Meat & Dairy

A common controversy in the dairy and meat processing industry has been the use of synthetic growth hormones to promote either higher milk production or bigger, faster-maturing animals for meat.

The economics of food is high but the education is nought

Vegetables and fruits are usually cold stored before it is out to the consumer.

Offseason fruits and vegetables usually arrive a month later from cold storage since they are stored at pre-ripened stage and ripened artificially.

Mangos are induced with calcium carbide. Calcium Carbide usually when exposed to moisture forms acetylene gas ripening them. These chemicals are cancer causing or knocks you cold before surgery.

Bananas are the most consumed and most economical fruit. It is gassed with ethylene for ripening. Ethylene is used for making one unconscious before a surgical procedure and also a cancer causing chemical.

Grapes is administered with Metacine, Copper Oxichloride, Copper Sulphate, Dythyne and N45 which is directly applied to the fruit.

Fungicides causes copper and sulphur poisoning,

Underground, Green house & Leafy Vegetables

Green house vegetables were found to have a difference in taste and texture when exposed to ultra violet rays than the natural habitat.

Underground vegetables use Benzene Hexachloride (BHC) which has replaced by the widely used Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT). BHC is more volatile than DDT, BHC has a faster but less protracted action upon insects. BHC causes nervous and liver disorders.

Leafy vegetables are sprayed with chloro phosphorus again a health hazard.

Rice, Pulses & Wheat

Polished rice and pulses cause a dietary deficiency disease called Beriberi. Beriberi is caused due to the lack of thiamine or vitamin B.

Endosulphan is still used in paddy though a controversial pesticide. Though partially banned the use is wide in rice cultivation. Endosulphan is used to avert an bug called “paddy stem borer”. Endosulphan is an endocrine disruptor and a bioaccumulation.

The wheat in Punjab is sprayed with Chlorpyrifos, Carbonyl sulfide and Imidacloprid to ward away aphids (pests). The induced chemicals are the source for liver and thyroid concerns.

Electromagnetism

It’s long been disputed the effect of the Induction stove, Microwave oven and Cellular phones.
All run on electromagnetic force, when exposed to electromagnetic force the polarisation of the body is affected.

Polarity is the life energy within one’s self. Polarity also relates to the laws of nature, like attraction, union of the opposites through a balanced mid-point. The body is an energy system of positive, negative and neuter poles and currents of energy flow thru them. Life energy is also referred to as prana or chi.

What now?

Pesticide company usually recommend a last spray to consumption is usually 20 to 30 days. To detect this, one would see flies and insects around the fruit or vegetables. This usually means weaning of the strength of the pesticide has started.

Food is becoming more toxic and health hazardous in the country. Systematic education should be introduced to the farmers on the effects, hazards and measure on the usage of pesticides.

Monitoring agencies should become stronger and tests to determine “fitness to consume”.

Strike a happy medium or middle path. Be aware of the hazards.

We are what we eat, the food that we consume will decide our quality of life. So, start eating right today.

Alternate Practical Substitutions-hope to a billion

Boundaries! They are a trained state of the mind. If we choose to unfetter, then opportunities could seem boundless. Oppression is always externally infused. We are defined by the state of oppression we subject ourselves to. Confidence is an offshoot.

Schools that create gender-biased spaces (girls only or boys only) build reservations weaving patriarchal or matriarchal loom into our lives. This further trickles down into pursuits for freedom and rightful honor.

Our childhood is our establishment to life. It plays critical afterward our late twenties, since this is also mostly time to make decisions, assess and calculate risks.

Machiavellianism, narcissism, crime in general, crime against women, sexual dysfunctions, increasing divorce rates, fear of authority are a few derivatives shaped by this form of repression and lack of open social connection.

Good news is answers can be found in behavioral sciences but there is still a taboo attached to it. To fill the vacuum “Alternate Practical Substitutions” to behavioral sciences are on the rise. These provide practical, skill-based, application-oriented tools to enhance persona and to increase the quality of life.

To understand “Alternate Practical Substitutions” are honing life skills. One needs to understand the mind and skillset of a pick-up artist. This is easily identified in the infamous Charles Shobraj. He had his way through to a lady and a man. He was confident, he got what he wanted and he sold dreams. He was demented, but had he employed his skills right he could have run a nation and peddled hope to a billion.

Why would we urge you to lean towards “Alternate Practical Substitutions”? While it is not a front side treatment, it is also not considered a taboo . It empowers one to know ones’ self better, releasing unexploited potential, understanding the gender bias, navigating authority, encouraging work presence and efficiency, structuring negotiating power, enhancing customer relations, marketing and sales leadership, and such. The benefits break boundaries and barriers.

When the values are so elevating, why is it not used main-stream? The solution lies in opening yourself to the benefits, or simply ignoring the topic because it seems possibly offensive. Progress only come to an open and trained mind.

Some folks are born with that magnetic power, some try, some don’t even know how. But there’s the fourth kind, who (l)earn the skills and techniques to become more attractive.

All you wanted to know about TATTOO removal

Visual imaginary translated into inking two layers of the skin, is indeed permanent.
Hence interpretation cannot be impetuous.

It’s not all fair if you choose to repair(pent), cosmetology is your only antidote

Dr. Vikram of Nova Cosmetic Surgery Centre will take us through the course of tattoo confiscation.

Glossary to Inking

1. Ink: Usage of metallic ink to organic makes the removal a tougher process. Organic ink could also fade off with time and is easier to drop.

2. Professional vs Amateur: Professionals are trained to handle the depth of the needle. An Amateurs inking would pose to be a problem during the removal process, since the depth the needle could have pierced deeper.

3. Colours: Single or monochromes hues are easy to erase.

4. Skin type: Lighter skin tones behave better to laser; removal is easier to darker skin tones

5. Tattoo Studios: An amateur artist or studio could attract air borne diseases.

Pain to re-Gain

1. Surgical
2. Grafting
3. Melanocyte transfer
4. LASER (Q switched ND-YAG LASER and PICO sure)
5. Fractional Co2 resurfacing LASER

The Process to Correction

a. Surgical removal: show almost instant results. This method is done by carving layers of skin to the fat tissue. This is done in the chest region. The procedure would leave a linear cut scar. This procedure is usually not advised. The costs vary between eight thousand to ten thousand rupees.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

b. Grafting: Skin is harvested from another part of the body, usually the inner area of the thigh or areas where the donor area scar is inconspicuous and grafted to the area of the tattoo (after removing the tattoo). This method would usually leave a dark patch in the area of the grafting. The costs would vary between fifteen to twenty thousand rupees.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

c. Melanocyte transfer: Is an alternative to grafting. The superficial skin in the area of inking is abraded and small skin graft is taken from behind the ear, through melanocytes. The cells giving colour to the skin is extracted from the skin and sprayed to the abraded area. The results are finer to grafting. This method would cost rupees twenty thousand a convening.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation

d. LASER: Is the most used method, requires a least of six conveying’s spreading over six months, yet depending on the scale, depth and colour used the tenure of treatment could range to twenty-four months. The Q Switched ND- YAG Laser widely is used. The PICO sureis the most advanced LASER now. PICO sure is more expensive than the Q Switched ND-YAG. The Q switched ND-YAG costs usually vary from two thousand to five thousand rupees a sitting.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

e. Fractional resurfacing Co2 LASER: Usually the last process. This method is to remove a ghost image (an outline of the inking that still is faintly visible), Even if it’s the final process the doctor could decide to do a resurfacing in-between depending on his scheme of deletion.

Know your Machines

Results are varied subject to the machinery used for the process.
Compromising on the cost of the apparatuses could mean poor quality output.

Apparatuses manufactured in the United States of America and France work cream, equated to the machines manufactured in China and Korea.

PICO sure is a fresh intervention to the cosmetology clinics in India. Owing to the muscle of the expenditure the machine is obtained at. Clinics tend to stick with Q-switched. The result of the PICO sure machine would be improved nevertheless would reflect on how burrowed your pocket can get.

Doctor Vs Posing Doctors

A doctor’s expertise plays an important role in the removal. The LASER settings and dosage is a major factor. An unsupervised machine or inexperienced person could burn the skin beyond revival.

Food of Thought

Dr. Vikram articulates, cosmetology is not only for the affluent, needless over-charging at several clinics make believe it is an affluent affair.
