heart disease

= = ?


I went out with an old friend to the coffee house not far away from my house. We ordered coffee for me and hot chocolate for him. We grabbed a magazine for each of us. I read articles about economy and investment and he read about health. He lighted up a cigarette and continued reading.

Then he laughed out loud.

“Read this article pal! It says coffee is the main reason why we get heart disease!!!”

I stayed silent. I looked at his cigarette and smiled.

In life it is the same thing. We always see wrong doing in others but not in us. A mirror doesn’t help much don’t you think?



P/s: Thanks Ong for the lunch treat and while eating at Old Town I got this idea.

  3. article tu in health magazine ke ape eh?

    kami kat sini belajar jugak pasal benda2 yang dlm mag neh. Biasanya mag (except health today) depa tak quote mana they got the infos tuh. End up people tend to believe ah.

    Masih belum ada akta menyatakan yang kalau mag bg health info yang salah, mereka akan disaman. Itu masalahnya skang. So nak baca tu boleh je, but nak percaya tuh, check dulu.

    But for this issue, coffee lead to heart disease, as tatau nak kata pe betul ke tak. Never heard or learned abt this yet ;)

    take care, love ur heart. Hehe

    p/s: coffee memang tak bagus, caffein tinggi.

  6. high caffeine can cause numerous effects..one of it is increasing heart disease - based on research by John Hopkins Institute

    Want to know the scientific explanation? Naahh..wont do it here..too long

    drink in moderate, live healthy life :)

  7. yup betul2. Better sesangat to avoid things yang memang confirm lead to heart disease rather than cut off coffee.

    TAdi bincnag dgan rumate, she said coffee ni sumting like constrict kan blodd vessel. Cause blockage. Ni maybe ah. Bebile if da jumpa yang betul nye, as bitau ah. Kalau jumpa ah :P

    ReplyDelete
  10. as - hehe yep. macam rokok tu dah le bau busuk, then satu bahan pun takde yang berkhasiat. buat pe kan? :)

    if as dapat info lagi kasi tahu ye :)

    moral of the entry - don't do everything too much. be moderate for 'quality' of life ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. princess - which one will cause stroke?

    yes agree but there is no moderation in smoking. do you agree?

  25. Coffee + Cigarettes = Cancer = Death

    How come your friend smokes but read health magazine?

    Btw, you are not that safe either cos you are taking in second hand smoke, reportedly to be worse than first hand smoke.

    In fact, you are worse than him cos you are drinking coffee and taking in second hand smoke at the same time, whereas he's only taking hot chocolates. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  26. then how about men who drink coffee without smoking?

    doctor pls :D if not this conversation will not end :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. coffee + cigarette = high caffeine x high risk = cancer

    but, how about Ali Cafe??? ...give stamina for man right?...

    ReplyDelete
  28. foongpc - yes, its unfair right? :( but don't worry, it is just an untrue story :)

    by the way, you change my equation? lol :P

    princess - er, that means he is taking the risk to himself and not to others, unlike smoker :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. hussaini - eh where did you guys got the equation? it was not in my post lol.

    anything related to coffee is related to caffeine :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. "pelajar tersayang sekalian...gosok gigi dan tido sekarang yer...esok tak boleh tumpu perhatian lam kelas, kena cubit cikgu nanti...hehe.." (rantaian arahan dari Faisal..ahaks)

    dah dinasihati..tp blum wujud kesedaran lagi..rasanya nasihat yang dibagi bukan lagi masuk telinga kanan keluar telinga kiri..tapi..tahap guna perisai dah..sekali bagi nasihat, melantun balik ke kita..huh....

    (azam diri utk berhenti smoking telah berjaya..harap tiada godaan lah...)

    ReplyDelete
  45. hussaini - hehe tudia nasihat seorang guru :)

    hmm nak azam senang je. setiap kali rasa nak isap rokok, ambil ubat nyamuk hidu. ok tak? kalau rasa boleh bawa maut. jangan isap rokok :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. inilah petua yang paling menggerunkan pernahku dengar..hehe

    tapi itulah kenyataannya...

    smoking ni lah juga yang menjadi permasalahan kat sekolah sekarang especially students asrama. Senang je diorang dapat beli rokok. Maklumlah, Labuan dekat dengan area ni. So, banyak rokok2 smuggle terjual. Cthnya, rokok Era..harga RM1.50 jer (20 batang lagi tu...)

    Perkara ni juga yang akan jadi agenda meeting on Tuesday.

    Kalau sebelum ni kopi, beralih lah kepada milo. Walaupun orang kata boleh mengantuk, tapi kalau dah biasa, xde ape nyer..pastikan milo o suam...tanpa susu dan ais...

    oohh..nak tido dulu. Esok kena bangun awal. 4.50 pagi. 5.45 pagi kena bertolak dah dari rumah. Maklumlah, sekolah jauh sikit. Esok pula bertugas as guru harian. So, kena awal utk memulas telinga students yg lambat & terhegeh-hegeh nak p perhimpunan..hehe

    ReplyDelete
  47. hussaini - hehe wah awalnye bangun. ni pun tengah tunggu nasi lemak je ni, sebab memang nak tidur dah pun, adik pulak masak nasi lemak. jadi kena juga rasa, kang merajuk.

    hmm, rokok ganti chewing gum. kopi ganti milo. tapi milo o bila sejuk tak sedap. kopi o still sedap bila sejuk. macam mana tu? :(

  48. I started to love coffee, seriously on moderate amount, when I have my first taste of being an employee. Coffee is nice, but at the same time I was being warned by the physiotherapist that drinking it won't do any good to my bones which then leads me to have back pains. So I try to reduce the intake by having coffee when I really need to stay alert and awake, but sometimes, it doesn't help coz I dozed off quite easily right after taking it.

    But I don't like the smell of burning cigars coz I can't stand it and the fact that it is more harmful to passive smokers.

    You are right about the mirror principle. We are too quick to criticize and blame others but ourselves.

    Have a great coffee Monday tomorrow yea.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi..Morning...

    Wajib lar awal bangun...so, xde lah kelam-kabut nanti...

    siap leh masak nasi lemak tengah2 malam lagi tu...nak berdagang nasi lemak ke adik Faisal tu???hehe

    kalau dah sejuk milo tu, memang dah kurang nikmatnya...so, kena minum sehabis-habisnya time suam-suam kuku tu.. :)

  53. zara - that is very informative :) actually i try to reduce coffee intake but its kinda hard. do you know that coffee isn't good for your teeth either? haha!

    hussaini - hehe tak lah. dia masak awal, cuma panaskan balik je makan for supper.

    problemnya, baca buku kan lama, so air pun akan jadi sejuk :(

    ReplyDelete
