The Root Cause of Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attacks)

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

The complete root cause analysis of Myocardial Infarction is identified.

A few fundamental questions have been raised by the research committee, and they are:

Q1: Why heart attack does not occur in animals?
Q2: Why plaque does not get deposited in the veins and other arteries, if it gets created by cholesterol?
Q3: Why does LDL (low-density lipoprotein) theory still exist? Is it because the pharmaceutical industries make $40 billion every year?

The research concludes:

1. Myocardial Infarction is not at all linked to Cholesterol.
2. Maastricht University, Netherlands has published a new theory based on lipoproteins (a) as a cause of deposition of plaque on arteries. This deposit of plaque is created because of repair of the arteries in heart.
3. Since the Human body cannot produce Vitamin C, which has an ability to counter Lipo(a) deposits where it can cure heart attacks.

He believes that with proper intake of 700 mgm Vitamin C can cure all heart attacks of humans.

What a breakthrough! – a possible disaster for few pharma companies.

I love the University of Maastricht that published all the researches in a public domain for free without having any ‘Making money’ thinking.

A must watch video of the Breakthrough towards natural control of cardiovascular disease by Dr. Matthias Rath.

Little Good News #11 – MittiCool Clay

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

MittiCool Clay Creation, a small-scale industry that produces hand-craft items, is situated in the city of Wankaner, Rajkot District. This project has been initiated by Mr. Mansukhbhai Prajapati in the year 1988 with very small investment and zeal for innovation in the field of clay products, during which he first developed a basic clay product called Tawadi (tava) with hand pressing system first time in India.

To list a few of his hand-made inventions:

  • In 1995, he developed the first clay water filter.
  • In 2001, he developed a unique product – MittiCool Refrigerator – from a special clay for the rural people who do not have electricity in their villages.
  • In 2005, he discovered the Non-stick Mitti Tava that was introduced for the very first time in India.
  • And, in 2009, he discovered another innovative product Smart Cooker – made up of Terracotta Clay.

It was for the first time in history of India that somebody has taken patent rights for clay-made home products. With his great efforts and creativity, he was honoured as ‘RURAL SCIENTIST’ by the Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam – former Scientist & President of the India, at the 4th National Awards Function in New Delhi. Since then, he never looked back with his creative mindset and attachment to clay. He also developed many innovative products that were appreciated both, nationally and internationally.

Mansukhbhai’s work has been appreciated in various media channels like Discovery, NDTV, National Geographic Channel, IBN-7, BBC World, and in magazines and newspapers such as ‘India Today’ and ‘The Economic Times’ which ranked them (MittiCool) 3rd in the whole world for the innovative clay products. This effort was first recognised by Prof. Anil K. Gupta of National Innovation Foundation (NIF), Ahmedabad. Since then, his work was recognised worldwide.

He is not only implementing his knowledge to himself, but also imparting knowledge to the present and forthcoming generations by establishing the ‘PRAJAPATI HASTKALA VIKAS TRUST’ where he has trained more than 500 students for this art. This trust is run by the Government of Gujarat.

Emotional Health and Compassionate Leadership

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Leadership 2.0 was the topic of the event organised by young enthusiasts from Silicon Valley under the banner of SPIR-IT who believed that the role of Emotions and Compassion drives creativity and individual high performance. The SPIR-IT Summit was held on 19th March at IMAGE Auditorium, MRC Nagar, Chennai at 9.00 a.m.

I liked the topic of the conversation. They were able to invite many great thinkers and bring them to Chennai. The few names are Bruce Lipton from USA, Bharat Mitra – an Australian by birth but a Indian by heart, Sister Jayanti Kirpalani from Brahama Kumaris, Dr. Kiranmai, David Kilowsky, Raghu Ananthanarayan, Nilima Bhat, Dr.  Lakshmi Andiappan and N Sivasamban. The event was put together by Bala Kishore and Janardhan Chodagam.

What I appreciate is, amidst many self-development programmes on skills and competencies which are taking center stage, this programme conversed about the fundamental questions of Emotional Health and Compassionate leadership in today’s high-pressured ‘Hire and Fire’ environment. To me, these are the basic elements of Design Thinking that drives higher throughput. For Design Thinking, one needs a secure environment where one can have respect for his opinions and perspectives besides his skills and expertise. It is the emotional health that drives ‘I know it all’ which I call ego, to ‘I need to know’ listening.

Grandeur and Life of a Tree

7,000 – 12,000 years – the age of the oldest living single tree known on Earth, a Redwood known as called ‘Eternal God’ in California.

5,000 years – The age of the oldest Yew trees in Scotland. The Yew can live forever as long as there is no interference from humans.

Trees have watched real Ramayana or Mahabharta Live and are still alive.
