How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Squat, don't sit, when you shit

“Shit! I've just converted my squatting toilet bowl to a sitting one, to facilitate the older folks...” commented my friend who forwarded this information.

Change your toilet so you can heal constipation (and many other health problems)
by Stephanie Relfe B.Sc.

You may find this information incredible - but read on. It may begin to make sense once you get used to the idea.

Believe it or not, the current toilet seat is a comparatively new invention. It was developed in the Industrial revolution by people who thought it was more 'dignified' to sit on a 'throne' than the way the natives did. However, many doctors at the time were worried about this causing health problems because it went against nature.

If you have ever felt, as many, many people do, that after you have evacuated, there is still something left, here is the reason:

The anal canal is UNSTRAIGHTENED when seated. Bowel evacuation when seated results frequently in OBSTRUCTIVE CONSTIPATION. Adopt a relaxed, FULL SQUAT POSTURE and the anal canal STRAIGHTENS.

This obviously can help constipation. Months later other health improvements can happen, due to your body being free of extra toxins. Also, bladder function may improve after several months bec au se of an improved pelvic floor nerve supply.

Oncologists have observed that 80% of colon cancers occur in the caecum and the sigmoid colon, the two areas that are not fully evacuated in the sitting posture. This causes fecal stagnation and probably explains why colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States . In traditional Asian and African cultures where squatting is the norm, colon cancer is virtually unknown!

Most hemorrhoids will heal without relapse when, upon urge, the squat posture is adopted for bowel movements.

Another serious condition caused by sitting to evacuate instead of squatting is the leakage of wastes into the small intestine. This affects the ileo-caecal valve, which is considered by modern medicine to be inherently flawed because it is so often leaking. Ask a kinesiologist and they will most likely tell you that the ileo-caecal correction is one of the most common corrections that needs to be done. Also, the toxins get into the bloodstream and hence put more pressure on the liver which has to detox them.

Most sufferers usually notice significant comfort improvement within seven days of making this simple change of habit to the squat posture bec au se body wastes pass through the straightened anal canal.

There are several ways you can manage to turn your present toilet into one where you can squat:

In USA , purchase a platform from It is VERY sturdy and can be easily folded and put to one side. (See picture below).

So, to my friend who had just renovated his toilet, this (with extra cost) could resolve his problem!
