Buah Durian Belanda : Penyembuh Kanser

Aku tertarik dengan artikel ini yang dipetik daripada laman web Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM). Artikel ini ialah berkaitan dengan buah durian belanda yang dikatakan dapat menyembuhkan penyakit kanser. Memang benar, orang tua-tua kita dahulu sering menggunakan ubat-ubatan daripada pokok-pokok yang boleh didapati di sekeliling rumah mereka ataupun di dalam hutan.

The Soursop Fruit


The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer

*10,000 times stronger than Chemo*.

Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.

So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden. The other parts of the tree are also useful.

The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? This tree is low and is called graviola in Brazil, guanabana in Spanish and
has the uninspiring name "soursop" in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it's the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:

i. Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
ii. Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
iii. Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
iv. Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America 's largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970's! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing... Extracts from the tree were shown to:

i. Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer..
ii. The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
iii. What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviolatree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched--so why haven't you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be--why doesn't every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?

The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health--and for many, our very lives(!)--are controlled by money and power.

Graviola--the plant that worked too well

One of America 's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds--have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties--and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree--it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviolaso potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits--or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up--came in fast and furious....

....The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...

...Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials—the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value--were ever initiated...

....A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin..."

....The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer

...A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviolatree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers... Seven years of silence broken--it's finally here!

A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America .

Sambutan Hari Lahir Arif Ke-13

Sabtu, 22 Ogos 2009 bersamaan 1 Ramadan 1430 Hijrah merupakan hari pertama umat Islam berpuasa. Pada hari ini secara kebetulan merupakan ulangtahun kelahiran Arif kali ke-13. Bagi meraikan sambutan ulangtahun kelahiran beliau, aku sempat membelikan sebiji kek selepas membeli juadah di Bazar Ramadan.

Malam tu, selepas terawih, kami sekeluarga secara ringkas meraikan harijadi dengan meminta beliau meniup lilin dan memotong kek harijadi. Kemudian kami masing-masing mengucapkan tahiah kepada beliau. Ada beberapa cenderamata yang dihadiahkan oleh adik-adiknya, Arifah, Hamizah dan Alim. Kali ni awal-awal lagi Arif dah minta hadiah harijadi beliau tetapi aku tangguhkan selepas raya nanti. Hadiah yang diminta ialah sepasang kasut bola yang berjenama.

Aku mengharapkan semoga dengan bertambah umurnya, Arif akan menjadi seorang remaja yang lebih dedikasi dalam menuju hari-hari mendatang...

Persiapan Mendapat Berkat Ramadan

Bagaikan menunggu tetamu yang istimewa, Ramadan dinanti-nantikan oleh seluruh mukmin di pelusuk dunia. Dalam sejarah Islam sendiri, Rasulullah SAW dalam sebuah riwayat dinyatakan bahawa enam bulan sebelum tibanya Ramadan, Rasulullah mempersiapkan diri untuk menyambutnya. Bahkan ketika Syaaban, Rasulullah mengajar sahabat doa: “Ya Allah berkatilah kami pada Syaaban dan sampaikan kami Ramadan.”

Imam al-Ghazali membahagikan puasa kepada tiga tahap:

Tahap terbaik (khusus al-khusus)

Seseorang Islam yang berjaya mengawal puasanya bukan setakat makan dan minum tetapi mencakupi keseluruhan perbuatan atau tindakan lain yang boleh membatal atau mengurangkan pahala puasanya.


Seseorang yang berjaya dan berusaha untuk menahan diri dari melakukan segala perbuatan yang boleh membatalkan puasanya, tetapi dia masih lagi tidak dapat mencegah diri dari maksiat batin.


Seseorang yang berpuasa dan berusaha untuk menahan diri daripada melakukan apa juga perbuatan yang boleh membatalkan puasanya tetapi masih lagi tidak dapat menghindarkan diri daripada melakukan maksiat zahir dan batin.

Antara punca yang menyebabkan ramai di kalangan umat Islam hari ini masih berada pada tahap kedua dan ketiga disebabkan nilai dan mutu kehidupan seseorang itu sendiri yang masih berada di takuk lama walaupun menyedari sedang berpuasa. Perbuatan seperti terlalu banyak bercampur dengan rakan yang melebihkan tumpuan dalam hal keduniaan, hanyut dalam kealpaan dan angan-angan, bergantung harap tidak kepada Allah dengan sepenuhnya dan makan serta tidur yang berlebihan.

Rasulullah SAW dalam hadisnya bersabda yang bermaksud:

“Sesiapa yang berpuasa dengan penuh keimanan dan perhitungan Allah akan mengampuni dosanya yang lalu” (riwayat Muslim).

Dalam hadis lain Rasulullah SAW bersabda yang bermaksud:

”Apabila kamu berpuasa, maka hendaklah pendengaranmu, penglihatan-mu dan lidahmu turut berpuasa dari segala yang haram. Jauhilah dari suka menyakiti jiranmu, hendaklah kamu bertenang dan beramal dan jangan biarkan hari tidak berpuasa dan hari berpuasa adalah sama.” (riwayat Bukhari).

Bagi memastikan segala pesanan Rasulullah SAW ini dilaksanakan, kita perlu memulakan penghidupan yang lebih bermutu dan bernilai sepanjang berada dalam bulan berkat ini. Antaranya ialah:

Menjaga ibadat puasa daripada terbatal dan kurang pahalanya kerana kelalaian dalam menjaga anggota badan.

Memperbanyakkan membaca al-Quran dan merenungi pengajaran di sebalik pengertian ayat yang dibaca.

Mengurangkan tidur pada siang hari dalam bulan Ramadan.

Beriktikaf dalam masjid terutama pada sepuluh malam terakhir Ramadan.

Memperbanyakkan bersedekah terutama kepada fakir miskin kerana bersedekah akan menyucikan jiwa manusia dari sifat takbur dan kembali menyemai sensitiviti sesama umat Islam.

Usah terlalu boros dengan melakukan pembaziran dalam penyediaan makanan.

Melihat kepada betapa besarnya fadilat yang bakal diperoleh sepanjang bulan ini, Rasulullah SAW memberi penekanan dengan menjelaskan kemuliaan Ramadan melalui satu khutbah baginda iaitu:

“Wahai manusia, sesungguhnya kamu akan didatangi satu bulan yang besar lagi penuh keberkatan iaitu bulan yang didalamnya ada satu malam yang lebih baik dari seribu bulan. Bulan di mana Allah jadikan puasa adalah fardu dan qiyam pada malamnya adalah satu tambahan. Sesiapa yang mendekatkan diri kepada Allah dan beramal soleh pada bulan itu, maka samalah dia dengan orang yang menunaikan 70 amalan fardu di bulan lain. Bulan Ramadan adalah bulan untuk memberi pertolongan dan Allah akan menambahkan rezeki orang mukmin di dalamnya. Sesiapa memberi makanan berbuka bagi orang yang berpuasa pada bulan itu, maka itu menjadi pengampunan dosanya dan kebebasan dari api neraka.”

Secara jelasnya menikmati kehadiran Ramadan dan fadilat yang terselindung di sebalik tabir kemunculannya menjadi tumpuan setiap umat Islam yang sentiasa mengharap keberkatan dan pahala yang berlipat ganda dari Allah Taala. Usah jadikan Ramadan sebagai bulan untuk berlumba-lumba menyajikan makanan yang pelbagai sehingga melakukan pembaziran atau menjadikan alasan berpuasa di dalam bulan Ramadan untuk menjadi umat Islam yang rendah produktiviti dan tiada natijah penghidupan kerana keletihan berpuasa.

Aktiviti Berkayak Listac

Sesekali beriadah memang menyeronokkan. Bukan sahaja ianya dapat mengisi masa lapang malah menjadikan tubuh kita sihat.

Sabtu, 14 Ogos 2009 berlangsungnya aktiviti berkayak anjuran Kelab Staf Perpustakaan UTeM (Listac). Aktiviti ini diadakan di Tasik UTeM berhampiran Bangunan Canselori dari jam 9.00 pagi hingga 12.00 tengah hari. Ianya adalah sebahagian program yang dirancang Listac dan juga bagi mengisi masa lapang sebelum menjelangnya Ramadan.

Kira-kira 15 orang yang terdiri daripada staf perpustakaan UTeM, ahli keluarga dan rakan-rakan mereka menyertai aktiviti berkayak ini. Antaranya yang turut hadir ialah Pengerusi Listac, Harulrizam, Setiausaha Listac, Hasliza dan Bendahari Listac, Noraini. Turut hadir memberi sokongan ialah Ketua Pustakawan, Puan Hajjah Faridah bersama dua orang anaknya.

Semua peserta perlu mengenakan jaket keselamatan sebelum dibenarkan menggunakan kayak. Dua orang staf yang aku kira daripada Unit Sukan membantu peserta terutama sewaktu mahu masuk dan keluar daripada kayak. Aku dan Arif mulanya menggunakan sebuah kayak (double) kemudian menggunakan kayak secara berasingan. Aktiviti ini memang menyeronokkan. Macam-macam kaedah kami gunakan, mulanya berkayak ke depan, kemudian berkayak secara mengundur dan macam-macam lagi.

Kira-kira pukul 10.30 pagi, kami berhenti rehat. Bekalan yang dibawa dikongsi bersama. Sambil makan, sambil berbual. Ada cadangan daripada KP supaya diadakan pertandingan kayak antara unit.

Aktiviti berkayak disambung semula dan selesai kira-kira jam 12.00 tengah hari. Aktiviti yang menyeronokkan ini aku harap dapat diadakan lagi pada masa hadapan. Bukan sahaja peserta yang menyertainya gembira dapat menyertai aktiviti ini malah dapat berkenal-kenalan dengan ahli keluarga masing-masing.
