To Prevent further viral Pandemics- become vegetarian or reduce meat consumption-by Harold Gunatillake

Dr Harold

“Eating meat isn’t just killing animals-it’s also threatening human life

Transcript:

There is one solution to prevent further endemics and protect us from emerging infectious diseases like swine flu, bird flu and  present COVID-19 derived from SARS-CoV-2, just by avoiding or reducing  eating meat products and become  selective meat eaters, or vegetarians.

This would be a most distasteful suggestion, but inevitably the truth.

Primarily, China, US. Indonesia and other countries having “wet markets” selling sea animals, live birds, exotic animals for human consumption should be banned.

Dr Harold

trip to post-war Jaffna

This is a video documentary I did in 2010, on a trip to Jaffna and Mullaitivu after the LTTE war.
It was a most delightful memorable experience, as we noticed the freedom and the joy on the faces of the local people, welcoming us with both arms, and speaking in Sinhala.
The Terrorist war devastated Jaffna and the Mullaitivu districts , and the people suffered from the combats of the Tigers and the defensive forces equally.

What is a mutant virus and its significance?-by Dr Harold Gunatillake

Dr Harold

Transcript:
Viruses have no life like bacteria. But it is a lifeless thing simply a bad thing wrapped in protein. The protein inside is called RNA- ribonucleic acid, which has a genetic code. It is just a fleck of protein and genes, a little bit of code in a package with no to-do list beyond hijacking the biology of living things to make copies of itself and spread them to other living things. As I said by themselves, they have no life and dormant until the key they have in the protein spikes unlock the ACE2 lock on the surface of human cells to get in to create the havoc.

Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) and DNA are both nucleic acids and along with lipids, proteins and carbohydrates forms the four major macromolecules required for all forms of life.
Mutation means a change in structure of a gene, resulting in a variant form that may be transmitted to subsequent generations, caused by the alteration of single base units in DNA or RNA, or deletion, insertion, or rearrangement of larger sections of genes or chromosomes.
RNA is a long molecule that contains our unique genetic code. The protein itself is actually 29 proteins, each with a different job. Like a recipe book it holds the instructions for making all the proteins in our bodies. Your genome? is made of a chemical called RNAs In other words, a gene mutation in a virus is a permanent alteration in the RNAS sequence that makes up a gene.

Heart Failure

Basil and Spinach from our balcony garden

The topic of the subject is confusing, but as you read, you’ll understand the significance.
What is heart failure and why should it occur?

Your heart start beating from your early foetal stage till you exhale your last breath. By the time you are 60, a healthy heart would have beaten continuously over two billion times. The efficient working and pumping blood from your heart can become weakened with age, but if you are aware of it, you can always adjust your lifestyle to prevent it. This decline in its efficiency is called “heart failure”.
