Changing perspectives on elderly care in Thailand
[T]here is no registration or state licensing of private nursing homes in Thailand. Therefore, the exact number of nursing homes
that provide long-term care is unknown. However, it is known that the number of nursing homes is increasing in Bangkok and other urban areas, and
that the number of families that employ paid caregivers is also rising. The number of day elderly training center is also increasing rapidly
to about 500 establishments in the country as a whole, however there are no regulations regarding educational and training standards, and the
number of students of these facilities are limited. More by Denise Lääveri (2013), Institutionen för Socialvetenskap, Ersta Sköndal Högskola, Stockholm, Sweden -

In the UK average costs range from £2,186 for basic residential care to over £3,036 a month with nursing care.
In Switzerland, people are expected to contribute to costs amounting to anything between US$5,000 and $10,000 a month.
In Thailand the figure is closer to US$3,000 (£1,821) a month - and that for a care package that is likely to be more comprehensive.

Liver fluke eggs are excreted into the water system by infected people. At the university hospital of Khon Kaen University they receive around 2,000 patients
a year with a specific form of liver cancer called cholangiocarcinoma. Only around 200 of those can be treated, usually by surgery, cutting out the tumour from
the liver. The others are given palliative care, easing their discomfort, usually by draining bile ducts, until they die. The only effective remedy is prevention.
Doctors are trying to educate people about the risk.

Cool roofs save on aircon A cool white roof reflects more sunlight
and absorbs less heat than a standard dark roof. Cool roofs can be made of a highly reflective type of paint, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles.
Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or 66°C or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay much cooler, say at
100°F or 38°C. Photo: White painted roofs have been popular since ancient times in places like Greece. Similar technology can be adapted to modern homes and

Graviola: see the new book
What is a Graviola Tree? "Graviola (Annona muricata) is a rainforest tree, classified under the pineapple family Annonaceae.
Also known as soursop or raintree or Brazilian paw paw, it is found in the belt extending from Central America to South America, including parts of Brazil."
"The leaves, fruit, seeds, and stem are used to make medicine. Despite safety concerns,
graviola is used to treat infections caused by bacteria and parasites including leishmaniasis, a disease caused by parasites transmitted through
the bite of sand fleas; herpes; coughs; and cancer. It is also used to cause vomiting and to empty the bowels. Some people use graviola to help them relax.
Graviola is applied to the skin for arthritis. In foods, graviola is used in cooking and beverages. How does it work? Graviola contains many chemicals
that may be active against cancer, as well as disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites."

Can graviola (soursop) cure cancer? "In laboratory studies, graviola extracts can kill some types of liver and breast cancer cells that are resistant to particular

Thunder god vine Wikipedia
"Treatment of Obesity with Celastrol extracted from the Tripterygium Wilfordi thunder god vine plant.
Despite all modern advances in medicine, an effective drug treatment of obesity has not been found yet.
Discovery of leptin two decades ago created hopes for treatment of obesity. However, development of leptin resistance has been a big obstacle, mitigating a
leptin-centric treatment of obesity. Here, by using in silico drug-screening methods, we discovered that Celastrol, a pentacyclic triterpene extracted from
the roots of Tripterygium Wilfordi (thunder god vine) plant, is a powerful anti-obesity agent."
"Celastrol suppresses food intake, blocks reduction of energy expenditure, and leads
to up to 45% weight loss in hyperleptinemic diet-induced obese (DIO) mice
by increasing leptin sensitivity, but it is ineffective in leptin-deficient (ob/ob) and leptin receptor-deficient (db/db) mouse models. These results indicate that
Celastrol is a leptin sensitizer and a promising agent for the pharmacological treatment of obesity." Ref.: Liu, Junli et al. (Harvard Medical School, Boston)

U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services warning: "Thunder god vine can cause severe side effects and can be poisonous if it is not carefully extracted from the skinned root.
Other parts of the plant—including the leaves, flowers, and skin of the root—are highly poisonous and can cause death."
Don’t buy this herbal treatment for rheumatoid: "In addition to being perfectly natural, thunder god vine is also perfectly poisonous. It’s been used as rat poison and has even been a component of some insecticides.
Just about every part of the plant is poisonous, except for the skinned root – and I still wonder how they managed to figure that out."

The Facts on Leptin: "Leptin is not our obesity hormone. Leptin is our starvation hormone," says Robert H. Lustig, MD, professor of pediatrics at the
University of California, San Francisco and a member of the Endocrine Society's Obesity Task Force. Leptin is a protein that's made in the fat cells, circulates
in the bloodstream, and goes to the brain. "Leptin is the way your fat cells tell your brain that your energy thermostat is set right," Lustig says.
The problem is that overweight people have large amounts of leptin, but their brains aren't getting the important signal to stop eating.

BBC News - Déjà vu: The expats ruined by property scams in Thailand.
The sparkling seas and warm beaches of Phuket are a magnet for sun-seeking holiday-makers and, increasingly, for foreigners seeking a comfortable and cost-efficient retirement.
More than 100,000 foreigners have settled on the island - though some now bitterly regret it.
British expat Ian Rance and Irishman Colin Vard are now living almost penniless with their children on the outskirts of Bangkok as they struggle against overwhelming odds to
recover properties they bought on Phuket.
Ruined Englishman Ian Rance with his Thai family
Both men lost all their investments through frauds that neither of them imagined were possible.
"I'd made my money in England and had enough to retire I thought. I was looking for a place that was warm, a place that had some rule of law, where I could live in safety and peace," says Rance, a chartered surveyor and professional arbitrator from Hertfordshire, who arrived in Phuket in 2000.

What attracts young Thai women to date and marry older foreign men?
"Not all Thai women who married foreigners are prostitutes. Even if they are, they were not subjected to social gossip as severely as in the past. Thai
women do not feel ashamed to marry foreigners like the ones in the late 1960s and 1970s. Marrying foreigners seems to be positive enough for them. Some have
continued sending home money. The total amount is estimated at 40,000 million baht [US$ 1.2 billion] per year.
"Nearly 70% of Isan women who married foreingers completed only primary school, their pre-marriage income amounted to between 2,900 to 4,600 baht
[US$ 90 to US$ 145] per month, whereas their post-marriage income [from a foreigner] amounted to as much as 45,000 baht [US$1,400] per month, even though most of them
were just housewives."
