Bread is a major source of
it is important for people to cut the amount of salt
they eat in their diet. Too much salt is
linked to high blood pressure, which is turn can
increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. The
government watchdog the Food Standards Agency
announced targets for reducing salt in a range of
food products in 2006.
Why do we need salt?
Salt is a commonly occuring mineral, the technical
name of which is sodium chloride. It is the sodium
part of salt that is important. The body needs a
certain amount of sodium to function properly.
Sodium helps to maintain the concentration of body
fluids at correct levels. It also plays a central
role in the transmission of electrical impulses in
the nerves, and helps cells to take up nutrients.
Why is too much salt bad?
In adults, when levels of sodium are too high, the
body retains too much water and the volume of bodily
fluids increases. Many scientists, although not all,
believe this process is linked to high blood
pressure, or hypertension, which in turn is linked
to a greater risk of coronary heart disease and
With high levels of fluid circulating through the
brain there is a greater chance that weaknesses in
the brain's blood vessels are exposed, and that they
may burst, causing a stroke. Similarly, a greater
volume of fluid passing through the heart can place
additional strain on the organ, increasing the
possibility of coronary disease. However, there are
many potential causes of hypertension and coronary
heart disease, and some scientists deny that salt
plays any significant role at all. An adult will be
able to remove salt from the body through the
kidneys into the urine.
However, very young babies do not have the capacity
to process large quantities of salt as the kidneys
are not yet developed. If they are given adult food
with a higher salt content before they are at least
four months old, excess sodium can accumulate in the
body, causing kidney, liver and brain damage, and in
very occasional cases, death. It is recommended that
babies are given only milk, whether breast or
formula, for the first four months of life. Baby
foods are supposed to contain lower levels of salt,
and it is recommended that if adult foods are to be
given, unprocessed foods should be used, and no salt
How much salt should we eat?
The government recommends that adults should eat
6g of salt a day. However, the average intake of
salt is between 9g and 10g a day. Experts estimate
that if average consumption was cut to 6g a day it
would prevent 70,000 heart attacks and strokes a
year. The main sources of salt in the diet are
processed foods and salt added during cooking or at
the table. Meat and meat products, and bread can
also be high in salt. Processed foods are thought to
account for around 75% of the average person's salt
intake. However, research published in The Lancet
medical journal suggested that most people could not
tell the difference between loaves with markedly
different salt content.
Salt is added to processed foods to aid preservation
and to improve taste. Sodium is present in additives
such as monosodium glutamate and sodium bicarbonate.
Small amounts of sodium can be found naturally in
some foods such as eggs and fish. The salt we
sprinkle on our food from cellar accounts for only
10%-15% of our intake.
What should we do?
Dr Wynnie Chan, a nutrition scientist for the
British Nurtrition Foundation, says that everybody
should look to reduce the amount of salt in their
diet. "It would have a significant effect on those
people who need to reduce their salt levels because
they are susceptible to hypertension, but it would
also do no harm for the whole population to reduce
its salt intake," she said. Dr Chan said there were
four main ways to reduce salt intake:
table salt to food once it is served
with a reduced sodium content
monitor the salt content of processed food
fruit and vegetables - they contain potassium
which balances the effect of salt on the body
Reading food labels can be confusing as they often
give the sodium, rather than the salt content of
food. To calculate the amount of salt in a product,
multiply the sodium content by two-and-a-half times.
Goats for Widows and destitute
Projects for CP KSA
How the Project
intend giving 2 goats to these poor families. In return these
families will return produce of two births from these goats (will
have to complete 4 she goats). They will keep the original goats and
all future produce. This will enable us to give these two sets of
goats to two more families in line. Then those families will do the
same. Thus we expect a chain will be established to benefit more and
Cost of the Project
Cost of 2 milk giving goats = Rs. 14,000
Location of projects
The families selected are in remote hilly areas in Northern
Pakistan, district Abbottabad NWFP. Through our initial working we
selected 11 families whose
credentials are attached.
Accountability to Donors
We will provide photograph of the
occasion when the goats are being given to the recipients. Will
provide address and Tel no of the family receiving the goats (or
of the village elder if they do not have tel no.

scam threat warning
warning of an increase in the number of fake anti-virus
Hackers are tricking people
with a false warning, saying that the computer is infected
with a Trojan and getting users to buy a fake anti-virus
A number of sites were closed last year when authorities in
the US took action to stop sellers of "scareware". But
despite the closures, the number of sites continues to grow,
with one expert saying it was "the biggest threat facing
computer users today".
Matthew Woolley, chairman of the Independent Trade
Association of Computer Specialists, which represents
independent computer retail and repair shops across Britain,
said hackers were playing on people's fear.
"At my repair shop in Lincoln alone, we've had more than 300
users in the past six months come in with a computer
infected with fake anti-virus software.
"This week, we've seen fake AVG anti-virus that was so good,
one of my engineers was convinced that it was the real
thing," said Mr Woolley. "If we can't tell, what hope is
there for Joe Public?"
Hackers have been employing more sophisticated tricks to
dupe users into buying their fake software. In early
February, 2009, hackers put fake parking tickets on cars
with a URL directing them to "view pictures with information
about your parking preferences" that in reality downloaded a
Trojan that then prompted the user to install fake
And last weekend, a Facebook application that spread virally
among users caused an error message for Facebook users.
Although the application and message were themselves
harmless, searching the error message "Error Check System"
in Google came up with a number of websites that claimed to
have information on the supposed threat, but were really
designed to perform a fake anti-virus scan of your computer.
Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant with anti-virus
firm Sophos, told the BBC that it was not known if the two
were linked. "This application automatically sent itself to
all your friends, saying there was a problem. "People
panicked and did what most of us would do and put the term
into Google to see what it was.
"Although Google has now addressed this, over the weekend,
the first three or four links would take them to a dodgy
site that would tell them that they were infected with a
virus. It's rather a strange coincidence". Hackers have also
created fake reviews to trick users into buying fake
anti-virus software. Websites from popular IT magazines are
cloned, hosted on a hacker's website, and then pages created
to look like an official review.
One, claiming to come from legitimate security firm Symantec
had, in reality, nothing to do with the firm. Neither was
the "review" written by the claimed author. Speaking to the
BBC, Tim Danton, editor of PC Pro magazine, said it was a
growing problem. "It doesn't take any expertise to copy a
website and make it look realistic. "What we have to rely on
is that the public is aware enough to look not only at the
logos but at the domain and URL. People need to download
from reputable sites and if users are unsure, then tools
like McAfee site advisor can help," he said. "The fight
between the bad guys making fake-anti virus software and the
good guys trying to warn the public about their activities
is a constant one. Trouble is, at the moment, the bad guys
But clicking on a rogue link does not mean you automatically
become infected. Having up to date anti-virus software will
prevent most infections and many web browsers also warn of
possible hostile activity. Cliff Evans, head of security and
privacy for Microsoft in the UK, told the BBC that there
were a number of measures users could take to keep
"If you keep your firewall turned on and have your
anti-virus software up to date, you should be fairly well
protected. The phishing filters on Internet Explorer 7 or 8
should also help. "If users do have any kind of infection,
Microsoft run a free online scanner at

Sports- A Means for
Hope you all are hale and hearty.
In the past month, many educational institutes held their
annual sports day. After attending the sports day in one of
the school, I was waiting for my car when I happen to hear
the conversation of two girls sitting close by me who were
arguing if sports are important or not. So this time, I
decided to write about the need of sports in the routine of
Children are sent to school so that they become mentally and
physically fit and learn moral values. Good education is a
harmonious blend of all these three. It is true that kids
these days have tough daily routines. The school work,
followed by tuition and then assignments leave hardly any
time to engage in any other activity. The fierce competition
in school has forced many to adopts such a study regime that
it has robbed the school goers of the time to play games, an
essential part of the life of a child who is growing up. But
that’s no excuse for giving up sports activity which is so
essential in personality development.
Most tend to see sports only as means of entertainment. Yes,
games do amuse but they have other important impacts too.
Playing outdoors games is important for many reasons. Child
who takes part in sports remains active, physically fit and
healthy. And it is healthy body that can guarantee a healthy
mind. A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul: a sick
body is a prison. It is not only physical well being that
one attains by playing sports, but these activities also
play a role in character building. Sports sharpen leadership
skills. When we play sports we learn to work together as a
team. They infuse a spirit of sportsmanship in us. When we
play a game we learn to stay honest and follow its set of
rules. Thus we get into the habit of abiding by the rules
and law in general – a trait of a good citizen. Often we
need to make decisions while playing sports. We discover how
to deal with stressful moments without losing our tempers
and make decisions. Some times they turn to be right
sometimes they don’t. We learn from our mistakes. So our
analytical skills sharpen and we become good decision
makers. Besides alertness is another thing that sports teach
So my friends, strike a balance between studies and games.
Choose a game that suits you most and benefit from its
contribution in your physical and mental well-being.
Remember all day work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Till next time, Happy sports
