    "The general, who is in charge of security for the Covid-19 Administration Centre, warned a curfew is inevitable if his call falls on deaf ears.

The number of day elderly training center is also increasing rapidly to about 500 establishments in the country as a whole, however there are no regulations regarding educational and training standards, and the number of students of these facilities are limited.

Those areas are really dry with less rain than in other Isan area. — Every dry season sons and daughter-in-laws leave villages to work in Bangkok and leave their children with grandparents to feed.

    Koi Plaa: The Thai dish that can give you liver fluke cancer.

    Where there are rivers or lakes in Isan (NE Thailand), the locals use the smaller fish, chop them up finely, mix them by hand with local herbs, lime juice, live red ants, and serve it up raw. Koi Plaa is very popular but also dangerous; found to be behind a high incidence of liver cancer in the area.

    Liver fluke eggs are excreted into the water system by infected people. At the university hospital of Khon Kaen University they receive around 2,000 patients a year with a specific form of liver cancer called cholangiocarcinoma. Only around 200 of those can be treated, usually by surgery, cutting out the tumour from the liver. The others are given palliative care, easing their discomfort, usually by draining bile ducts, until they die. The only effective remedy is prevention. Doctors are trying to educate people about the risk. — BBC News 13 June 2015 online - offline — See also River fluke cancer warning by UdonMap.

Also known as soursop or raintree or Brazilian paw paw, it is found in the belt extending from Central America to South America, including parts of Brazil." "The leaves, fruit, seeds, and stem are used to make medicine. Despite safety concerns, graviola is used to treat infections caused by bacteria and parasites including leishmaniasis, a disease caused by parasites transmitted through the bite of sand fleas; herpes; coughs; and cancer. It is also used to cause vomiting and to empty the bowels. Some people use graviola to help them relax. Graviola is applied to the skin for arthritis. In foods, graviola is used in cooking and beverages. How does it work? Graviola contains many chemicals that may be active against cancer, as well as disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites."

    Thunder god vine Wikipedia

    "Treatment of Obesity with Celastrol extracted from the Tripterygium Wilfordi thunder god vine plant. — Despite all modern advances in medicine, an effective drug treatment of obesity has not been found yet. Discovery of leptin two decades ago created hopes for treatment of obesity. However, development of leptin resistance has been a big obstacle, mitigating a leptin-centric treatment of obesity. Here, by using in silico drug-screening methods, we discovered that Celastrol, a pentacyclic triterpene extracted from the roots of Tripterygium Wilfordi (thunder god vine) plant, is a powerful anti-obesity agent."

    "Celastrol suppresses food intake, blocks reduction of energy expenditure, and leads to up to 45% weight loss in hyperleptinemic diet-induced obese (DIO) mice by increasing leptin sensitivity, but it is ineffective in leptin-deficient (ob/ob) and leptin receptor-deficient (db/db) mouse models. These results indicate that Celastrol is a leptin sensitizer and a promising agent for the pharmacological treatment of obesity." — Ref.: Liu, Junli et al. (Harvard Medical School, Boston) Article | Schlankmacher aus chinerischen Gärten Artikel auf Deutsch | Where to buy celastrol Article | Side effects.

    U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services warning: "Thunder god vine can cause severe side effects and can be poisonous if it is not carefully extracted from the skinned root. Other parts of the plant—including the leaves, flowers, and skin of the root—are highly poisonous and can cause death." Website

    Don’t buy this herbal treatment for rheumatoid: "In addition to being perfectly natural, thunder god vine is also perfectly poisonous. It’s been used as rat poison and has even been a component of some insecticides. Just about every part of the plant is poisonous, except for the skinned root – and I still wonder how they managed to figure that out." Best Health Nutritionals.

    The Facts on Leptin: "Leptin is not our obesity hormone. Leptin is our starvation hormone," says Robert H. Lustig, MD, professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco and a member of the Endocrine Society's Obesity Task Force. Leptin is a protein that's made in the fat cells, circulates in the bloodstream, and goes to the brain. "Leptin is the way your fat cells tell your brain that your energy thermostat is set right," Lustig says. The problem is that overweight people have large amounts of leptin, but their brains aren't getting the important signal to stop eating. — Article at WebMD.

    What attracts young Thai women to date and marry older foreign men? — "Not all Thai women who married foreigners are prostitutes. Even if they are, they were not subjected to social gossip as severely as in the past. Thai women do not feel ashamed to marry foreigners like the ones in the late 1960s and 1970s. Marrying foreigners seems to be positive enough for them. Some have continued sending home money. The total amount is estimated at 40,000 million baht [US$ 1.2 billion] per year.

    "Nearly 70% of Isan women who married foreingers completed only primary school, their pre-marriage income amounted to between 2,900 to 4,600 baht [US$ 90 to US$ 145] per month, whereas their post-marriage income [from a foreigner] amounted to as much as 45,000 baht [US$1,400] per month, even though most of them were just housewives." — Source: "Dissertation" by Vilas Duangkumnerd (2009), NIDA. — See also Lady of Pattaya by Michael Schemmann (2005) — Photo © 2009 by ThaiSunset.
