Is white sugar toxic? ( Adakah gula putih beracun? )

Image
Assalamualaikum. Let's talk about sugar.  When I was younger, I thought sugar was only used in beverages - coffees & teas.  However, as time passed by I realized sugar was added not only in beverages but also in many of the on shelf products.  ( including canned food, instant meals, yoghurt drinks etc. Learn to read the ingredients, not all product are labelled honestly ) Then came another surprise, many people include sugar as an essential ingredient for a variety of cooking recipes. I am not talking about desserts, I'm talking about gravy, soups and curry. A hint of sugar is okay.  A lot of sugar is poison.  Here are 6 of the health problems that may be trigger from consuming too much sugar :- 1) Weight gain ( Obesity )  ~ Studies have shown, sugar is one of the major contributors to obesity.  ~ Fructose is linked to increased hunger, thus the desire to eat more.  2) Diabetes ( High blood sugar ) ~ Diabetes takes many years before symptoms are noticeable. ~ A high sugar d

Silent but deadly - Constipation ( Senyap tetapi berbahaya - sembelit )

Assalamualaikum :)  Finally! Making a comeback after many years of hiatus.  Recently, I found out that constipation is a common occurrence among many of us including children.  However it is rarely discussed or given the attention it deserves. Today, let's talk about this.  Left untreated, constipation could be the root cause of many diseases.  How? When our bowels are slow, it delays the elimination of stool/faeces ( poop ) - this may lead to accumulation of faeces in out colon. As time goes by, the faeces dump will only gets bigger ( unless the issue has been addressed and solved ) Imagine having a huge pile of poop in our colon, understand that it doesn't just lay there being innocent not releasing any substances - it is not innocent and it releases health threatening stuff back into our system.  Trapped faeces does release toxins, next it encourages the growth of bad bacteria in our colon and trigger inflammation. It does not end there, this is just the beginning to many mo

What is babywearing?

A simple question. A simple answer. What is babywearing? Well, it's to wear your baby! Heheh mind me if you find loops & holes in my explanation. I just found out about this recently but yes, I do love it & the idea is even better. Babywearing is not a modern act. As we can remember natives from history books..there are pictures of them, with their kids tied up on their back using all sorts of suitable materials, mostly using fabrics, cotton-like materials to wrap their kid on wherever suitable part of their body. And as they have already tied their kid securely, they can move about doing chores hands-free. Back then, our ancestors, wear their baby for convenience purposes, I don't know if they were aware the many benefits babywearing has to offer to both mum & child. I will briefly list down the awesome side of babywearing, but again I remind you, I am a noob in this field and my knowledge is limited. I'm sharing from wht I've learned. InsyaAllah I'll
