    6 Principles of Life

    * No point using limited life to chase   unlimited money.

    * No point earning so much money you cannot live to spend it .

    * Money is not yours until you  spend it.

    * When you are young, you use your health to chase your wealth. When you are old, you use your wealth to buy back your health. Difference is that, it is too late .

    * How happy a man is, is not how much he has but how little he needs .

    * No point working so hard to provide for the people you have no time to spend with.

  • Lung Cancer Patients Keep Smoking

    Patients, caregivers need strong support, interventions to quit, study finds

    FRIDAY, April 8,2011 (Health Day News) — Many patients diagnosed with lung cancer — as well as their family caregivers — continue to smoke even though doing so may jeopardize their recovery and long-term health outcome, says a study sponsored by the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

    Researchers report that nearly one in five recently diagnosed lung cancer patients continues to light up, which can make them feel guilty or socially stigmatized.

    “The biggest obstacle is fatalism, the belief that it is too late to quit smoking so why bother,” said Kathryn E. Weaver, study lead author and assistant professor of social sciences and health policy at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C.

    “There are benefits to be gained by quitting that have important implications for survival, response to treatments, and quality of life,” she said.

    The findings point to the need for family support, counseling and medication to help patients and/or family caregivers overcome their addiction and adopt healthy lifestyle choices, said Weaver.

    The study was recently published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

    The researchers looked at 742 cancer patients and caregivers at multiple sites and found that 18 percent of smokers with lung cancer failed to quit after their diagnosis. Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer.

  • Tsunami – things to learn from Japan

    1. THE CALM
    Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
    2. THE DIGNITY
    Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.3. THE ABILITY
    The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

    4. THE GRACE
    People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

    5. THE ORDER
    No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

    6. THE SACRIFICE
    Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

    7. THE TENDERNESS
    Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

    8. THE TRAINING
    The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

    9. THE MEDIA
    They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters.Only calm reportage.
