      The Basics of Organic Foods and A Healthy Diet

      Ever get confused by the quality, price, nutrition and classifications of organic

      foods? There are different interpretations on how to eat your way to a modern healthy living. However, do you know where and how to get started? Or, have you been experimenting for a long time and yet haven't gotten the hang of a healthy diet?


      In the upcoming wellness seminar (to be conducted in Mandarin) on 24 June 2005 (Friday), 8.00 - 9.30pm, it's a pleasure to have Mr Wang from Taiwan, to discuss these two topics in detail.


      Mr Wang is the proprietor of "Chyuan Shiang Energy Living", and also a qualified Quantum Medicine Consultant. Mr Wang has been, for many years, giving health talks in Taiwan and Southeast Asia. It's rare to be able to invite Mr Wang over, so please do not miss the opportunity to hear him speak!


      Also, Mr Wang will be demonstrating some simple Qi Gong in the first 10min of the talk. You are reminded to be punctual. :)

      New Video Evidence about What We Do to Chickens
      It’s very unpleasant to watch, but the following site presents new evidence for why we should stop eating chickens and our other fellow animals: www.torturedbytyson.com. Tyson is the name of one of the world’s largest suppliers of chicken flesh.



      Kampung Senang Charity Night

      But, It’s in Philadelphia

      http://www.theconnection.org/shows/2005/06/20050607_b_main.asp. Scully (http://www.matthewscully.com) is an articulate opponent of factory farming, although he does not seem to openly advocate vegetarianism.



      The V Stands for Vegetarian for American Idol Winner

      Apparently, Carrie Underwood, the 2005 American Idol, is a vegetarian: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7750944.
