Baby Han exploring a new book

Han is exploring a new book! 

Interesting book from Fisher Price:

Happy 8 month old!

Happy 8 month old, my dear little Han Han!
Wearing a new top, ready to go Gai Gai!


Beware of harmful chemical ingredients in our household items

Do you know what are the chemical burdens to our body? 

Do you think that things that we use topically are less or more harmful than the food that we consume? The answer is it may be more harmful. 

You may be surprised to learn that substances that we breath in or absorb through the skin may go directly to our blood stream if the substances are very tiny, therefore affecting our body system if the substances are harmful. 

Whereas food that we eat at least will go thru our stomach to let gastric juice to kill the germs for us first. Hence, always beware of the harmful chemical ingredients in our house hold items. 

1. Fluoride - Found in toothpaste and drinking water. Research has revealed that fluoride increases cancer risk. 

2. Formaldehyde - In disinfectants, shower gels, body lotions. Classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. 

3. Lead and Mercury - In whitening skin care and toys. Could harm nerves, digestion, urination, endocrine system, bones and others. Lead in placenta and breast milk can harm fetuses and infants. 

4. Nonylphenol - In cosmetics, plastics, pesticides. Could cause low sperm counts and malformed genitalia. 

5. Perchloroethylene (perc) - In dry cleaning solvents. Linked to increased risk of certain cancers. 

6. Phenol - In plastics, paints and some medicines. Could harm brain, nose, throat, lungs and heart. 

7. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) - Found in Shampoos, toothpaste, foaming bath oil. In 1983, the Journal of American College of Toxicology reported that animals exposed to SLS experienced eye damage, depression, laboured breathing, diarrhoea, severe skin irritation and corrosion and death. 

8. Triclosan - Found in toothpaste, hand wash, shower gels, toys, clothing. Research from the US shows that triclosan mixed with chlorinated water releases chloroform. When absorbed chloroform thru the skin, it may cause depression, liver disorder and even cancer. 

9. Turpertine - In show polish, paint thinner. Breathing or swallowing turpentine causes kidney and bladder irritation. 

10. Vitamin C - Found in whitening skin care. Too much cause redness, swelling and sensitive reaction. 

In fact, many times, unknowingly, the infants are already exposed to chemical pollution in the womb!! 

The EWG (The Environmental Working Group) has shown a study's result that 232 different chemicals in the cord blood of 10 babies who were exposed to the substances while still in the womb. 

The study tested for chemicals found in nearly every American household. The findings represented the first reported detections in American newborns for 21 contaminants. Among them:

1. Bisphenol A (BPA) - to make polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins that are made into hard plastic infant formula bottles, water bottles, metal food cans, safety helmets, glasses, TV, computer, CDs. BPA is linked to cancer, cognitive and behavioural impairment, endocrine system disruption, reproductive and cardiovascular system abnormalities, diabetes, asthma, and obesity.

2. Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) - fire retardant for circuit board. Interferes with thyroid function and may inhibit the production of T cells to fight viruses and bacteria.

3. Perfluorobutanoic Acid (PFBA or C4) - used to make non-stick, grease-, stain- and water-resistant coatings for consumer products. It is linked to cancer, birth defects and infertility.

4. 8 Previously undetected polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) - used in industrial lubricants, coolants and insulating materials. According to the US government and academic scientists, PCBs have been shown to damage the immune system, disrupt the endocrine system and developing brain.

To date, EWG studies have found out 414 industrial chemicals, pollutants, and pesticides in 186 people from newborns to grandparents.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has only tested about 200 of its inventory of more than 80000 chemicals in the market and has banned only 5!!

It takes more than food safety to be healthy!! 

We have a choice indeed to safeguard our family's health by choosing the personal care and household products that are safe.

Be a wise consumer. Always check the ingredient label upon getting any product in the market. Make sure at least it's free of harmful chemicals as listed above.

Do you think Replacement Therapy works?

Many of people nowadays are going for Replacement Therapy when their body is lacking of certain component for example, hormone, collagen, glucosamine....

Lacking of hormone especially during menopause - use Hormone Replacement Therapy - injecting chemical hormones into body to 'replenish' naturally produced hormones 

Lacking of collagen as we age which affected many parts of our body (joints, sagging of internal organs and muscle, skin sagging and wrinkled) - eat animal collagen or animal placenta

Lacking of glucosamine in our body - take glucosamine pills made by chemicals (made in lab) or shells from shellfish (crabs, shrimps, lobsters)

Have you ever wondered that do this methods really work????
Do they bring side effects after 2 years down the road???

Replacement Therapy - when we use it on long term basis, there will be side effects within our body cells. 

In our body,  we know WHICH hormone we are supposed to produce and WHEN to produce,  Just like a woman experiencing menopause, she can choose to use Hormone Replacement Therapy. However, after 1 year of using HRT, this woman will face increased risk of getting breast cancer by26%, stroke by 41%!!

As a woman, if tonight she quarrels with her husband and not sleeps well, the hormone that she produces that night will be different. When we use HRT and inject the chemical hormones inside. we may have exceeded the amount of my body requires. This leads to consequences of higher risks of getting cancer as CHEMICAL hormones increases cancer risk. 

As we age, we start seeing wrinkles. This is because my body experiences loss of collagen. 
If today there is someone telling you that you can use EXTERNAL COLLAGEN (animal) to replenish your body's collagen, you can tell her/ him that it's IMPOSSIBLE. Why?
The logic is very simple. Do you think that we can use animal kidney to replace human's kidney? No. Why not? Even we can't simple take other people's kidney for transplant as our body has an IMMUNE SYSTEM which will REJECT the external source. Once rejection takes place, do you think your body will see inflammation?

Where does collagen come from? Some people may tell you to eat more pig's throttle as it is rich in collagen. However, do you know what when the animal collagen goes into your stomach, it will be digested to amino acid, no longer in the collagen structure anymore? Where do we think that we can replenish our collagen with the animal collagen?? Furthermore, the animal source like shark, cows, may be infected and contaminated with heavy metals. We will expose to health risk if we eat it into our body. 

The animal collagen which exist in the skin care products - do you think our body can absorb the collagen thru topical use? Again, it's impossible as the molecular structure of collagen is too large that the skin pores can absorb. 

Our body is very wonderful machine. To replenish collagen in your body, you SHOULD let your body to SELF-PRODUCE collagen within your body. Only your body knows very well that how much collagen you need. Each individual's collagen is different from each other.  When your body cells are young, you can self-produce your own collagen! Taking plant foods which are rich in antioxidants will help your body cells young therefore can self produce collagen within your body. 

Glucosamine has become so popular nowadays and highly recommended to consume to protect joint health. However, the medical journal from UK has publish one finding after doing a survey on a 3800 people who cotegorized into 2 groups. One group is taking glucosamine pills and the other group is taking placebo. Both groups do not know what they are taking. After taking for a while, the result shows that glucosamine doesn't improve the joint condition and the pain level. So it tells that if someone after taking glucosamine and feedback that their pain reduces, it means it's just a placebo effect. 

The side effect of glucosamine is the person will develop into diabetes after taking glucosamine pills. 
Why? The logic is very simple. Glucosamine itself doesn't exist in the mother nature. It only occurs when your body is taking plant food rich in Glutamin such as brown algae, your body will then convert glutamin into glucosamine within your body, which further converted into glycosaminoglycans (which is a major component in our cartilage).

Do you also know that those glucosamine which use crab shell or shrimp expedite the fast growth of these shrimps, do you think the farmers will put fast growth hormones into the water? Now we are eating their shells...we are indirectly eating the fast growth hormones also. 

When we go to hospital, after checking and found out that our body is lacking of certain enzyme, we will then rush to pharmacy to grab the probiotics or certain enzyme products - hoping to replace the enzymes that our body is lacking. Initially, we may find out that the product works!
However, it's important to understand this fact that - our body CAN PRODUCE own enzymes. If we to use external source of enzyme to replenish body's enzyme, do you know that your body will feel lazy to self-produce the enzyme next time? Hence, dependency happens as your body will forget how to produce for you already. 
Same logic applies when a person who sits on wheel chair for 1 year and after that, he can't walk anymore as the leg muscle will degenerate and lose the ability of walking!

When a healthy person keep taking injection of external insulin, initially everything looks fine. However, after  a while, this person will develop diabetes, because the body forgets how to produce insulin itself already.

Omega 3: 
When we go to pharmacy, you may be approached by someone to get fish oil to replenish your omega 3 within your body. Fish can produce DHA and EPA (Omega 3), and Plant has only ALA (another form of Omega 3). Do you know that fish eats seaweed (which has ALA) to produce DHA and EPA within its body? Actually, do you think that human's body should be more wonderful that fish? When human takes chia seed and kiwi seed (rich in ALA), we can also produce EPA and DHA.

However, it became a norm that we tend to reply on replacement therapy to protect our health nowadays. We may justify that since all these fishes can produce EPA and DHA, i eat the fish will do. With this practise, human didn't realise that they start depending on these animal sources and create imbalance within the body which will bring many negative consequences in the long run. 

Living in the society where health info from advertisement, TV, radio, newspaper is so abundant, we really need to be a WISE consumer in CHOOSING THE RIGHT INFO and KNOWLEDGE to practise. 

NUTRITIONAL IMMUNOLOGY - which always pioneers in the latest findings of health information, led by Dr Jau-Fei Chen keeps educating consumers and public on the right health knowledge, and allows the public to be a wise consumer! 

The above information - learned form Dr Chen thru one of her "Live! With Dr Chen" Health Seminars held in Singapore.

Her morning breakfast - Soy Milk

Nutrifresh as her breakfast 

Why did I introduce Nutrifresh? To give her a plant-based soy bean milk in hope to replace her formula milk which has many synthetic vitamin fortification. 

Why i choose soy milk rather than cow's milk?


Soya bean + grape + banana + pineapple + asparagus + barley + broccoli + cabbage + cantaloupe + carrot + citrus peel + honeydew + peas + pear + peach + grapefruit + lemon + rice powder 

(No artificial coloring and preservative) 

Suitable for growing children from 6 months onwards.

I am glad she is GOOD with the taste!  :D 

Some parents may have concern of introducing many plant ingredients at one time. To me, i find it's okay to continue introducing as long as after first attempt she is not developing any allergies towards it. 

Furthermore, I have read that the latest AAAAI has come up with this recommendation on introducing allergen to infants:

This past January, however, the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology (AAAAI) released a new set of recommendations on infant feeding practices to help prevent food allergy. The recommendations are based on the available observational research to date, and are the first guidelines to state that delaying introduction of foods like wheat, cow's milk dairy, eggs, fish and nuts may actually result in an increased risk of food allergy or eczema. - See more at:

Nutrifresh has been a very convenient source for me to prepare her for soy milk now! ;)

Warmest Regards, 

Why I choose Nutritional Immunology for myself and family?

If you were with me that year in 2007, you will be seeing me as a very hardworking employee, readily to do overtime whenever needed. 

Right after graduation from NUS in chemical engineering, I stepped into working world and worked as a chemical engineer in first top engineering firm in Singapore.

Due to long hours of working and stress and improper diet, I became falling sick very often. 

Almost every month I had to take MC after getting flu, cold or fever

I didn't realise the severe impact on my job performance until my BIG boss asked me to his room and started questioning on my MC record. Basically i have taken 20 days of MC in my first year of working. 

I started to seek for alternative way to improve my health, but my condition didn't get better. 

While I was looking for better alternative, my colleague shared with me on Nutritional Immunology. 

I was amazed by her sharing with the fact that immune system is the BEST DOCTOR in the world and what it needs is nutrition from wholesome plant food source, not from medicine and vitamin pills. 

Taking antibiotics will make body to have superbug as the bacteria will be immune to the medicine. 

I started taking Nutritional Immunology wholesome food products such as Symphony of Excellence, Oxyginberry Beverage, Nutrifresh, Evernew and so on.

medicine and vitamin supplements

Will medicine give side effects?

Source: FDA website:

How can I find out about side effects or safety concerns for my drug?
To learn about side effects or safety concerns for your drug, read either the drug label or the drug's package insert. You may also want to speak with your pharmacist or healthcare provider.
Another way to learn about your drug’s side effects or safety concerns is to use the Index to Drug-Specific Information.
Do drugs have risks?
All medicines have benefits and risks. The risks of medicines are the chances that something unwanted or unexpected could happen to you when you use them. Risks could be less serious things, such as an upset stomach, or more serious things, such as liver damage. FDA approves a drug for marketing after determining that the drug's benefits outweigh its risks.
How do I report a suspected drug side effect?
Use MedWatch, the FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program, to report a suspected drug side effect.

Check out below links to understand about vitamin supplements:

The choice is on our hand (as a parent). 

Be a wise parent, give our kids the right nutrients from a healthy and safest source - which is healthy wholesome food from plants.

How can our immune system malfunction?

In war, the stronger army wins while the weaker army quickly succumbs to invasion. 

Our body works the same way. When germs attack, a healthy immune system instantly fights them.

What is  immune system and how does it work?

Only when our immune system is malnourished or weak, do we fall seriously ill or even die from infection. 

Take the example of two people exposed to the same flu virus. One falls seriously ill but the other doesn't. Although they face the same viral threat, only the person with a weak immune system becomes sick with the flu. 

Bacteria, viruses and other microbes are blamed for many illnesses but they are usually helpless against a strong immune system. A strong immune system function defends us from infections. 



A weak immune system leaves us prone to highly infectious disease like SARS, pneumonia, meningitis, hepatitis, influenza, tuberculosis, food poisoning and hand foot mouth disease. 

in 2001, the WHO reported that 10% of the adults in the world had at least one incidence of flu and that between 200,000 and 500,000 people die of the flu every year. 

A weak immune system can also lead to cancer. Under normal conditions, our immune cells are constantly patrolling the body and killing matured cells and cancer growth. The American National Cancer Institute explains that a weak immune system cannot quickly identity and destroy these cancer cells, causing an uncontrollable spread of cancer in the body. 


The immune system can malefaction by OVER-REACTING towards non-threatening agents. When this happens, we get an allergic reaction. 

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology says that allergies can strike at any time. It has been reported that one in 4 people  in the US and one in 6 people in the UK have some form of allergy. 

Allergic reaction can be classified into 3 main types - respiratory, food and skin. 

Respiratory: Sneezing  coughing, runny nose and tearing eyes are some of the respiratory allergies caused by factors like dust, plant pollen, animal fur and cigarette smoke.

Food: Vomiting, nausea, cramps and diarrhoea can be due to food allergens like milk, nut, eggs and shellfish.

Skin: Rashes, dermatitis, boils and blisters could stem from medicines, cosmetics, chemicals and some types of cloth, metals and insect bites. 

Allergies could lead to serious complications even death. Respiratory allergies can lead to asthma, a chronic lung complication that kills 1500 people a year in UK. Sinusitis, an inflammation of nasal sinuses, is a complication that affects 30 million Americans. Certain foods and insect bites can trigger  anaphylactic shock, which can kills if not promptly treated. 


Our immune system is programmed to distinguish between enemy cells and the body's own cells. Sometimes, the immune system behaves like a blind-folded soldier and mistakenly kills our own cells. This malfunction can lead to auto-immune diseases. 

There are over 70 auto-immune diseases, including rheumatism, inflammation of the joints, multiple sclerosis, a disses affecting the nervous system; diabetes mellitus, the inability of an individual to produce insulin to regulate blood sugar. Others include lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, haemolytic anemia, eczema, psoriasis, Crohn's disease and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

Rhematism affects about one million people in the UK. The WHO reported in 1998 that about 2.5 million people worldwide suffer from multiple sclerosis.
