In health-care industry it is unusual for a Researcher to use such a forceful language with great definiteness while expressing his / her findings, even if such findings happen to be 100% true.

Often, only in mathematics, one can use such a language.

There, you can say, “Beyond any doubt, 2 + 2 = 4”.  Of course, there may not be any room for anyone to argue about it.

Knowing the “norms” and “rules” of scientific writing, if I have expressed a forceful language of the above kind, then, that should kindle the spirit of people to contemplate about the seriousness of my intention.

I have written thus, honestly because:

(a) These findings are, in real terms, the undeniable truth,

(b) These findings are so totally OPPOSED to what the whole lot of humans have been hitherto made to believe as the truth,

(c) When presented in a soft voice, people often tend to ignore the exclamations, and

(d) It has taken 41 years for me to develop the guts to emphatically express against all those very powerful and dominant personalities (and organisations) in the area of health science, who have been spreading all these years half-truths as the total truth.

Therefore, I do not think I should apologize for my expressions.

I am posting under this heading the CONDENSED ABSTRACTS of ALL MY FINDINGS I had gathered through my 41 years of research.

Some of you could have read the same in one or two of my earlier postings in this blog, or through BERNAMA’s (Malaysian News Agency) news releases in 2007.

Yet, I would strongly recommend to EVERYBODY – whether he/she be a researcher, scientist specialising in some other discipline, or any individual caring to live well for a prolonged period without any pain or disease, to read this short presentation again and again.
Here it is:

·       EXCESSIVE consumption of CARBOHYDRATES, if left unused / unburnt, appears to GET STORED for ‘future’ use (similar to plants, such as potatoes. turnips, carrots, and the like) within the SOFT (CELLS) TISSUES as Glycogen, and form BENIGN CYSTS / LUMPS / TUMOURS.

·       EXCESSIVE CALCIUM (Ca) that goes into the body tends to ACCUMULATE within the CELLS of the SOFT TISSUES present all over the body, and INCREASES THE BODY WEIGHT, and leads to OVERWEIGHT and OBESITY.

·       When the EXCESSIVE CALCIUM accumulates within the SAME SOFT (CELLS) TISSUES that had turned into store house of the glycogen – WITHIN THE BENIGN STRUCTURE, it tends to become rock-like hard structures initially, and CANCEROUS subsequently.

·       UNDER-URINATION (about thrice daily, IRRESPECTIVE of the quantity of WATER consumed) has been found to significantly enhance such Ca accumulations.

·       DEFECATION of SLIMY FAECES (diarrhoea-like) also has been found to contribute to the accumulation of such Ca excesses.

·       Consumption of Ca-ENRICHED FOODS and Ca SUPPLEMENTS too appear to favour such Ca excesses.

·       UNDER-URINATION (about thrice daily) AFTER consuming ABUNDANT WATER (>2 L/day) gives rise to TYPE-2 DIABETES.


·       UNDER-URINATION (about thrice daily) + REDUCED WATER CONSUMPTION (e.g., < 500 ml / day) + Defecation of SLIMY FAECES + EXCESSIVE GLUCOSE consumption appear to be giving rise to CANCERS.

·       Liberal WATER consumption (2 – 5 L/day) + Liberal urination (> 8 times / day) + EATING TOO MUCH OF FOOD (all kinds, mixed, resulting in excessive calorie build-up), makes a person HARMLESSLY OBESE, with a clumsy body, without any major disease at all.

·       Liberal WATER consumption (3 – 5 L/day) + Liberal urination (>12 times/day) + Eating much LESS food, makes a person VERY SKINNY / SLIM / UNDER-WEIGHT.

·       EXCESSIVE WATER CONSUMPTION (e.g., 3 - 5 L/day) + UNDER-URINATION (e.g., about 4 times / day, or so) + Eating mediocre quantity of food + PROFUSE SWEATING (hyperhidrosis, due to excessive physical activities: e.g., football, running, etc.) during JUVENILE PERIOD (12 - 18 years), makes the person GROW VERY TALL.

·       TOTAL ABSTINENCE from WATER / Liquid consumption + Voiding EXTREMELY LITTLE URINE excretion (Anuria) gives rise to LEPROSY.

·       In all, nearly all the NON-COMMUNICABLE diseases appear to be directly or indirectly related to (a) UNDER-URINATION (b) excessive or reduced WATER consumption (c) defecating slimy/WATERY faeces, and (d) consumption of Calcium-enriched or supplemental consumables.

·       GLUCOSE build-up within the soft cells appear to be the INITIATOR of all benign lumps and tumours, while CALCIUM ACCUMULATIONS (essentially due to UNDER-URINATION + defecation of slimy faeces) tend to change them into CANCER structures.

·       Again CALCIUM accumulation + too much of WATER retention within the body (and NOT SUGAR) appear to INITIATE the TYPE-2 DIABETES.                                                                             However, SUGAR excesses tend to aggravate only the well-established Type-2 Diabetes condition.                                     (Type-1 Insulin-dependent Diabetes alone, of course, is the direct result of far too much of sugar consumption, beyond the body’s tolerance limit.)



     OK, Friends,

     I sincerely hope you would evaluate the truth in all the above, and then accept them as the total truth, and do the needful to spread this knowledge for the benefit of all humans, worldwide.

    Thanks, and with best wishes,

     Dr. Palani, Ph.D.

A critical evaluation by Dr. Palani...

*   *   *   *   *   *  
Dear Friends,

I wrote and sent the following article for a possible publication to a local newspaper, about three weeks ago.

However, it was not published - may be my standard of writing or presentation, or even the content requires further improvement.

Anyway, since it occurred to me that the contents in my article should prove useful to people, and therefore I should post it, at least in our BLOG.

The idea is not to waste the energy utilised in writing this beneficial article ... I am sure, you will not be bored by reading this. 

Here it is:

*   *   *   *   *   *
I read with great interest the latest article in STAR2 (24 July 2016, pp.8-9), entitled “A fat chance” by the deep-thinking analytical scientist (?Dr.) Chris Chan – my adored writer.

It occurred to me that I should poke my nose into the subject a little, for the benefit of the writer himself, besides making it useful to all his readers.

Let me quote a statement Chris Chan wrote:

He writes, while questioning the consumption of fish fats for the prevention of heart diseases, “It would appear to be a case of something called confirmation bias, or an error in the way statistics have been gathered, which suited a pre-determined hypothesis”. What a wonderful statement, and it is often a reality, these days!

If you are a critical-thinking reader of the many research papers that are getting published in many so-called international journals on a day-to-day basis, you would end up coming to the same conclusion as Chris Chan.

Nearly all of them are claimed to be peer-reviewed - meaning that they have been carefully evaluated by experts in the field for their worthiness in several respects.

The experimental design, the mode of sampling, the number of samples, if the data were subjected to statistical analyses correctly, the interpretation of the obtained information, the inference, etc. are considered prior to accepting a paper for its publication.

Most of the time, only one authority in a relevant area of science ends up reviewing the submitted article.

It is a fact that no one particular individual, however able he/she is, can be master of ALL the trades.

Often, most of the researchers tend to seek the help of some other statistician to sort out his/her data.

If a particular peer-reviewing authority happens to be a less informed person in the area of statistics, he may miss out the errors in the experimental design that has been used in the paper he is expected approve as fit for publication.

It is here Chris Chan’s statement comes in.

A Researcher, either out of ignorance, or of a need to please the funding body, may end up playing foul while designing his/her experimental and sampling procedures, and also while subjecting his/her data to statistical analyses so as to suit his/her pre-determined objective.

Let me cite here an example of what I highlighted in one of my articles published a few years ago.

That had relevance to beer-drinking.

Some scientists came up with an ‘astonishing discovery’ that beer drinking is good for the heart – it reduced the incidence of heart attacks and related deaths*.

(* Just key in the words “beer drinking is good for heart” in any of the search engines, you will end up with several ‘convincing’ articles. You may want to read this article before accepting those findings.)

Very truly, one of my patients, who used to be a very heavy drinker, and who stopped drinking altogether for four years after my strong persuasion, started drinking beer again after reading an article in the mass media that highlighted the findings of some scientists which claimed drinking beer would prevent, statistically significantly, heart attacks.

The news further said that the non-drinkers are more likely to experience coronary heart disease.

Even before proving the fault in the above findings, I would like to let you know the history that had happened in relation to my former patient who returned to heavy beer drinking again:

He died of Cirrhosis of the Liver in University of Malaya hospital.

Well, by saying this, I don’t mean to imply that all those who drink a lot of beer daily would die of liver problems.

Let me now go for explaining what could have gone wrong in the conclusions drawn by the scientists who claimed that beer drinking is better than not drinking, when it comes to heart health.

While trying to highlight the possible errors in the above research study, I don’t mean to hurt the beer-manufacturers, distributors, sellers, pubs and bars, or even the drinkers.

My intention is to highlight that all those reports which claim to have been subjected to peer-reviewing, statistical evaluations, inclusion of a million samples, and the like, need not be necessarily correct. They can be biased, as has been indicated by Chris Chan.

*     *     *     *     *     *

Let me explain the possible error that could have happened in drawing the above conclusion. It could have occurred due to any one or both of the following reasons:

(1)  The scientists who performed the experiment could have made (inadvertently, or out of ignorance) a huge mistake by designing an erroneous procedure, or

(2) There is room to doubt that those scientists could have purposely designed a biased procedure, with a predetermined conclusion, as indicated by Chris Chan, by way of favouring the funding body.

*     *     *     *     *     *

To start with, as per my findings, as I have reported in several of my publications (167 of them that include 13 books, and 335 postings in my Blog, etc.), it is calcium*, to a major extent, that gives rise to the thickening of the blood vessels, called atherosclerosis.

(* If you wish to differ that it is not calcium, please hold on to your view until you have finished reading this explanation.)

It is common knowledge that we require about 500 mg of calcium daily, with some deviations related to gender, productive age, body size, and the like.

People very easily get this quantity, since nearly all the natural food we consume tend to have some amount of calcium in it.

Often, we end up consuming a lot more of calcium than what we need.

When this happens, the calcium excesses tend to get excreted as part of the urine we void*. This appears to be true for all animals as well.

(* To get this confirmed, you can collect your urine sample in a transparent glass bottle, keep it for a week, and examine it visually.

You can see a ring of the settled calcium there.

The urine samples of the overweight and obese would contain abundant calcium, and the thin ones would emit much less.

Of course, lab tests can vouch it.)

Apart from the above, large quantities of calcium tend to get thrown out of the body in an undigested (unabsorbed) manner, as part of the faeces as well.

Most of the calcium in the uncooked vegetable matter (as has been pointed out by Chris Chan) and some of even the cooked ones, do not get absorbed by the intestine.

Such a rejection appears to have been based on the body’s need for the mineral.

If adequate calcium has already gone into the body, the brain tends to avoid further absorption of the substance.

This happens in order to protect the body from spoilage* and shortening of lifespan due to such excesses.

(* As per my study, it is calcium that gives rise to most of the non-communicable diseases including cancers, stone and heart diseases, and even type-2 diabetes.

Since this statement does not conform to the general belief people are made to accept all this while, it is bound to create strong controversies and objections.  

However, I would want to request you to hold on to your view for a while, at least until I have finished explaining the entire phenomenon here.)

*     *     *     *     *     *

Most of the time, as stated earlier, our body ends up accumulating too much of calcium, and these excesses will have to be removed from the body.

Since calcium is water-soluble, the free-floating calcium excesses that is being carried in the lymph fluid (not in the blood) can easily be removed by the urine.

I have established that we need to drink about 2 litres* of plain water and urinate at least 8 times daily so that all the calcium excesses in the body can be removed.

(* The water requirement as well as the number of urinations are based on the calcium-carrying capacity of the water/urine, known as the saturation point.)

To sum up, if a person is going to drink about 8 glasses of water (2 L), and urinate nearly all of it through about 8 urinations, then, the person may not die of heart disease*.

(The fat-constituents described by Chris Chan, along with and any other culprit for the heart disease, can be dealt with in a different write-up.)

In other words, if a person (irrespective of the quantity of water he* drinks) does not urinate 8 times a day, his body would end up retaining plenty of calcium, and that would give him heart blockages, with the possibility of killing him through a myocardial infarction.

(* In women, since the menstrual fluid removes abundant calcium, fertile women do not normally get heart attacks.)

With this understanding, let us evaluate the reality in the study that recommends beer drinking as a good way for protecting heart health.

*     *     *     *     *     *

Let us say that the beer-promoting scientists have been experimenting with four million* people.

(* In science, if the sample number happens to be large, the experiment would yield accurate results.

For that matter, a carefully conducted experiment using just 20 individuals for each category should give a reasonably acceptable conclusion.

Again, variables such as gender, age groups, climate, etc. should also be cared for, while designing the study.

Here, I am purposely neglecting the finer details, giving importance only to the main objective.)

The following should form the correct and unbiased experimental design:

The first million must be made to drink 2 L of plain water daily.

The second group, only 2 L of beer daily.

The third million, only 500 ml of plain water daily.

The fourth group, only 500 ml of beer daily.

Let us assume that this experiment is carried on for, say, 10 years.

After this study period, if the collected data is evaluated with the use of statistics, then most probably, the following kind of trend might get established as true results:

Some 95%* of all those who took 2 L of water daily, and urinated nearly all of it, did NOT get any heart attack, and are still living healthily.

(* All the readings given here are just examples, and have nothing to do with the real results.)

Some 60% of those who took 2 L beer daily, and urinated nearly all of it, did not get any heart attack, but half of them died of cirrhosis of the liver.

About 45% of those who drank 500 ml of water, and therefore under-urinated, did not get any heart disease, but half of them died of other health problems.

Only 20% of those who took 500 ml of beer alone, and under-urinated, did not get any heart attack.
(However, half of them died of cirrhosis of the liver, and only 10% of them are still alive.)

*     *     *     *     *     *

Based on my knowledge on the subject, the above should be the kind of result one should get.

The following-kind of conclusion can be derived out of the above (imaginary) experiment:

1.    Drinking 2 L of water daily, and urinating nearly all of it, appears to keep people alive and healthy without any heart problems, to statistically very highly significant extent.

2.    Drinking 2 L of beer, instead of water, and urinating nearly all of it, appears to be next best thing to keep a person healthy, as compared to drinking much less water.

3.    Drinking 500 ml of water appears to be comparatively better than drinking 500 ml of beer for people to keep alive, even it means for a shorter lifespan.

The inference we get out of this imaginary results will be, as follows:

If and when a person drinks 2 L of water daily, and urinates all of it, all the calcium excesses and other toxic substances in the body appear to get removed, leaving the body to remain in an almost-perfectly healthy state.

If and when a person does not drink enough water to remove the calcium excesses, beer appears to be the next best substitute.

In other words, drinking beer is better than not drinking any water at all.

*     *     *     *     *     *

If the above form the results of those scientists, most people may not opt to drinking beer for the management of their health.

The scientists appear to have either purposely or inadvertently avoided the inclusion of water drinkers while trying to find the effect of beer consumption on the health status of humans. 

The correct title for their paper must have been “The effect of beer consumption on the heart health of people, as compared to plain water consumption”.

*     *     *     *     *     *

The above is precisely what Chris Chan had mentioned in his article, in a subtle manner as “confirmation bias”, without implying any insult to anyone.

When it comes to Chris Chan’s explanations related to the overweight and obesity in relation to calories, fats, adipose tissues, and the like, I may have to put up another elaborate paper of this kind.

Well, dear fans of Chris Chan, I hope you would consider accepting my explanations with some amount of positive thoughts, rather than trying to win over the doubted controversies.

Well friends,
The above was the paper I did for the newspaper, sad that it was not published.
However, I hope this must have offered you some benefit by kindling your spirit for a critical evaluation of any news you may read in newspapers or magazines.

You could have come across the news that came out in Medical X’press yesterday (August 5, 2016) that had the title:

Dieting approaches may not be effective for weight loss, according to research

The following is the condensed version of the news:

A research team in University of Otago, comprising of Dr. Sook Ling Leong, Dr. Jill Haszard, and Dr. Andrew Gray have found in New Zealand, through their 3-year study that the weight control measures,  through the control of food, in women between 40 and 50, did not succeed.

They mention that women in that age bracket are known to be at high risk of weight gain.

The original paper is said to have come from the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (2016). DOI: 10.1016/j.jand.2016.02.021, and that was provided by University of Otago.

*   *   *   *   *   *

When a person in a cold climate overeats, the unspent calories may end up as adipose tissues, which in reality is a form of storage of energy for ‘later’ use, besides providing thermal insulation against external chillness.
This is much analogous to plants saving their starch in their root tubers, such as potatoes and turnips.
The adipose tissues as such can accumulate in any person, irrespective of the age.
However, it may be a bit more significant in inactive people, such as the women in their 40’s, compared to youngsters who tend spend much of their energy in physical activities.  

My 41-year study in the area of obesity reveals that it is CALCIUM accumulation within the cells of the SOFT tissues that makes a person overweight / obese.

In fertile women, the menstrual fluid removes substantial quantities of calcium at monthly intervals.
This process tends to keep their weight slightly LESSER immediately AFTER the menses, and slightly MORE a day before its onset.

Most women tend to enter their menopausal stage in their 40’s.
This would then prevent the regular elimination of the Ca excesses from the body, enhancing its accumulation and related weight increase.

If those women take Ca supplement, then their weight is bound to increase enormously.

In addition to the above phenomenon, two other factors that can contribute to body weight increase include HABITUAL UNDER-URINATION and DEFECATION of SLIMY FAECES.

Unwanted Ca excesses from within the body gets thrown out through urinations.
When one under-urinates (e.g., just thrice daily), those excesses tend to remain within the body, thus favouring its storage in the soft cells.

Likewise, when a person defecates slimy or watery faeces, the unabsorbed Ca remains in the faecal matter gets absorbed by the glandular cells in the colo-rectal region, thus contributing to body weight increase, and cancers there in some.
*   *   *   *   *   *
Ok, friends,

I hope my above-findings explain reasonably adequately the phenomenon that is responsible for the body weight increases in people.

Thanks for reading this, and with best wishes,
Dr. Palani, Ph.D.,
