My paternal grand mother late Smti.Kunhumadhavi, the youngest daughter of an "Adhikari" as they were given the power to collect tax from certain districts in erstwhile Malabar, which falls in Kerala state in present day India, was a follower of Buddhism as well, though we were Hindus, for the simple reason that it had all the good messages for humanity for a righteous way of life,which the religion conveyed. She used to tell us about the main theme of "ahimsa' which means not hurting any living being by words or deeds. Though present day Chinese and most Asian countries follow Buddhism today , there are very few among them who follow the actual religion in deeds rather in their day to day life.

The five main principles the religion preached known as "panchseel" {in Malayalam reads as "Kakkayga,Kollayga,Kallam cholidaika,Kamathal thettaika,kudichidaika] The rough translation goes as follows "Never Steal any thing, Never kill, Never lie,Never commit sin in terms of sex or desire for materialism and lastly never drink alcohol or abuse drugs". How many present day Buddhists follows the above messages in real life. I am sure there are very few who adheres to the above principles.

If one goes deeply in to the written scripts of all present day religions the messages in different languages is almost the same ,the root causes of all evil in our present day life or our total populace.

It is most important that we realize the importance of a sin free life for it brings happiness to all.

The evil of the nexus between politicians and corporates have been in the news of late.It has now been proved beyond doubt that the reserved forests and land which belonged to the government in other words people have been given to the big corporates in make shift arrangements such as lease for plantations mines etc.

It is like the tentacles of octopuses which keeps growing and makes huge profits at the cost of millions of poor people who ,leave alone have their own land, but hardly is surviving or perishing without food and water, on the other side we have big corporates owning land and forests ,millions of acres to get richer day by day and a share goes right in to the kitty of the political parties ,those who are ruling or may rule in the future or has been in power in the past.

In India we have witnessed the latest dramas in connection with Reddy brothers in Karnataka who has partners in Andhra pradesh as well. The other latest being the Munnar land taken over by Kannan devan and the Tatas.

According to my calculation these are only the tip of the iceberg. As many of the big politicians have huge land holdings along with big corporate houses and has been eating up the reserves in huge volume also, stashing away funds in tax havens. The recent cover up by CPM in connection with corruption has been due to the very fact that the money , a small percentage though, has been amassed by the political parties as well, which has made those leaders to show a blind eye towards such news items, while covering those corrupt leaders,who on the other side has eaten up most or majority of such funds made through the tie up arrangements with big corporates.All together they have made the people of India live miserably while the resources are eaten up by few in power along with big corporates and multi nationals.

People have now woken up to the realities and have started to react as can be seen from many North Indian states effected by Maos and Naxals ,who are all poor tribal and farmers with nothing to fall back on for a lively hood. It is high time that our Judicial system gets strict with these parasites who live on the resources meant for millions of the poorest in our country. No corporates should be allowed to get bigger like in the cases of CITI,Lehman brothers etc. The Americans have paid dearly for their foolishness and now the Indian Business houses are following their footsteps and is becoming too big for any government to have control over their sinful actions.

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

> 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

> 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 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
