Food, Health, and Environment in Qatar
To all my Dear QL members,
Welcome to this group where we will discuss everything related to Food, Health and our Beautiful Environment...if only we can still call it beautiful.
Lets eat good food, healthy food, work towards being healthy and then we will all try to preserve our environment.
How does that sound?

The conference will be held under the auspices of the Heir Apparent, His Highness, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.It will bring together ministers and senior government officials, policy developers, researchers, scholars and experts, development practitioners and representatives of international and regional organizations, farmers’ unions, NGOs, private and public financial institutions and funds, private agri-business enterprises and the media.
What is the best way of restoring the body’s fluid balance - by constantly sipping from a bottle of water or taking an occasional big drink?
Seventy per cent of an adult’s body is water. Two and a half litres are lost every day in urine and water that evaporates from the skin. This loss must be offset by a daily intake of the same amount: 1.5 litres by drinking fluids and the rest via solid food.
“We have a sensation of thirst when the body’s water loss reaches 0.5%,” said Susann-Catherine Ruprecht, spokeswoman for the German Institute of Human Nutrition. Drinking a glass of water is the simplest solution.

Group members are hoping to get many more volunteers involved in this year’s campaign, and have asked anyone interested to join them tomorrow to kick off the programme.
Sponsors including Sigma paints have provided a number of items to the group, such as 300 t-shirts and caps to protect workers from the sun.

'Potentially harmful ingredients not listed on label'
By Rayeesa Absal and Nathalie Farah, Staff Reporters Published: 00:00 May 30, 2010
Abu Dhabi: The Ministry of Environment and Water (MOEW) has banned the sale of weight loss products, Leptin Green Coffee 800 and Leptin Slimming Bag Green Tea, after laboratory tests revealed potentially harmful medical ingredients that were not declared on the label, officials said.
Obaid Juma Al Matroushi, MOEW Acting Director-General, issued a decision on Sunday, banning the products from being brought into the UAE and from being sold on the market.
Minsan tayong mga pinoy naooverdramatized kung papano gagawin at maghanda ng kahit napakasimpleng lutuin at lalo pang pinapahirap ang pagluluto kahit hindi naman. Mas lalo pa tayong walang ganang gumawa lalo pat sa mga mamahaling restoran lamang ito matitikman kasi cguro sa isip natin mahal, wlang sangkap at well-seasoned chef lamang ang nakakagawa.
Pero dahil espesyal na araw ang katorse, kagabi sinubukan kong gumawa at heto... try try lang...
"Nathan, 5, and Chelsea, 7, died last week of suspected food poisoning after eating a take-away meal ordered from a restaurant in Al Ghusais."
Dubai: "Why did this happen to my children?" Patrick D'Souza asks, his voice cracking at the cherished memories of little Nathan and Chelsea. "They were all my world, now they're gone. How can I go on?"
It's been 12 days since the D'Souza family's hellish nightmare began, and it started with a phone call placed to the Lotus Garden in Al Ghusais for Chinese food.
Never did the family realise then that for five-year-old Nathan and seven-year-old Chelsea, it would be their last supper.
... today is the day,
... to embark on the new begginning,
... and on this maiden voyage,
... i shall feed the soul with inspiration,
... so as to sustain the endless flight,
... amidsts the journey that seeks higher,
... bound to rediscovering the lost path,
... of that long sought yet highly ellusive,
... one that has been found long time ago,
... yet foolishly taken for granted,
... oh benevolent one that is,
... "A Life of Everlasting PEACE"...
i posted this story here, as i find it appropriately.
to you, who have the habit of hitting below the belt
using nasty harsh words... yes you! you know who you are
and you know that i know you already.
please be warned, stop your nastiness now before many more
people gets hurt by your acts.
i advise, if you cannot control that bad habit of yours... better seek mental help.
i will not disclose your identity for now.... but unless, you did not make amends and change your behavior, then i have no other choice but to do what suits your acts.
may god bless you :)

Volunteers pick up a carcass during the clean-upcampaign on one of the beaches in Qatar
A number of expatriate organisations have volunteered for the current clean-up campaign as part of the ninth Qatar National Green and Clean campaign.
The annual drive is run by Green Qatar Centre, which functions under the aegis of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Urban Development.
No expatriate organisation was slotted during the last two week-ends because of the dusty conditions and bad weather, expatriates coordinator Abdullah Kutty said.
