‘Urine Whiskey’

In Interesting and funny on 26 Dec 2013 at 19:12

I chanced upon an information in Listverse that urine of diabetes patients is added to whiskey malt and allowed to age and it is reported to be good!

In India urine therapy is known.

Urine as Medicine.

Urine Therapy

Some people drink their first Urine in the morning.

It is believed to  provide Immunity from diseases, keeps one youthful and in general a good tonic.

Late Prime Minister of India, Morarji Desai and the late Governor of Tamil Nadu Prabhaudas Patwari advoacted urine therapy and admitted to drinking Urine.

“James Gilpin of London produces “Gilpin Family Whiskey,” which takes the urine of elderly diabetes patients and filters it, then adds it to mash. The sugar in the urine begins the fermentation process, and within a few weeks, a perfectly serviceable whiskey is produced—though Gilpin claims it is better if aged awhile in the bottle. Gilpin Family Whiskey is not sold; rather, it is freely distributed as a “public health statement.”

Whiskey out of Urine.

Urine Whiskey

Further information at Biong Boing.

Sugar heavy urine excreted by diabetic patients is now being utilized for the fermentation of high-end single malt whisky for export. The Whisky market is growing faster then any other alcoholic beverage worldwide. With a prevalent genetic weakness being exposed in the northern hemisphere leading to a sharp rise in type two diabetes, economists have found a new exportable commodity to exploit and are keen to capitalize on this resource quickly.

Large amounts of sugar are excreted on a daily basis by type-two diabetic patients especially amongst the upper end of our aging population. As a result of this diabetic patients toilets often have unusual scale build up in the basin due and rapid mould growths as the sugar put into the system acts as nutrients for mould and bacteria growth. Is it plausible to suggest that we start utilizing our water purification systems in order to harvest the biological resources that our elderly already process in abundance?

Insulin Murder

In crime, India on 25 Feb 2013 at 10:35

There used to be a time when people thought that it was safe to inject air  into some one and escape undetected.

Pathologists have devised  a way find out that it was murder.

Now, for the first time, Doctors have detected Insulin being used for Murder!

The Doctors could not initially could not determine the cause of Death.
But on persistent demand of the relatives suspecting Foul play, detailed Autopsy revealed that it was an a case of overdose of Insulin.

The Victim’s husband is A Doctor.

Be it for health, be careful about injection.

Safe and preferable to have the injection by yourself and it is not diffident _Check Batch number and expiry date of the Insulin.

Insulin Murder

Insulin Murder

Insulin Murder.

Some incidents set precedents in crime investigations and death of Ritu Kapoor, the 32-year-old pregnant woman who died of hypoglycaemia (insulin overdose) in May 2012 is one such instance for the state. Kapoor’s death is the first documented murder by insulin in UP. Experts say that in the country about 16 documented insulin homicide incidents have been reported. Death due to hypoglycaemia is a rare event and the level of glucose that was present in deceased’s body at the time of death can be termed as rarest of the rare case.

The medical examination report in the said case is seen as a landmark work achieved by the KGMU’s pathology department as well as state’s forensic science department. A research paper will be prepared to help experts deal with such incidents in coming years.

“Kapoor’s mysterious death will be now documented as part of the study and reference material for our experts. On February 28, a seminar is being organised to discuss the case, where senior police officials and medico legal experts across the state will be invited,” said Dr SB Upadhyay, director of the state’s forensic science laboratory.

Moreover, another expert Dr G Khan, MD forensic medicine and toxicology recounts that Ritu’s is UP’s first and country’s 17th such incident. “I keep following the subject closely and can say that only a handful of insulin homicide cases have been reported in the country,” he said.

Going back into the details of the case, on May 23, 2012, Ritu, who was 10-week pregnant, was rushed to Krishna Medical Centre when her blood sugar level dropped. The doctors administered treatment and hours later, her condition improved. However on early morning next day Ritu’s husband, a practicing physician Dr Avadh Kapoor raised an alarm as soon as he woke up. Ritu’s body had turned cold. The doctors examined the body and pronounced her dead.

On insistence of Ritu’s relatives, post-mortem examination was carried out and deceased’s viscera as well as blood samples were preserved. The family who was already alleging foul play into the incident then approached senior authorities to set up an expert panel of doctors and investigate the matter.

A blood examination report was conducted by KGMU’s department of pathology on September 4, 2012. It was the serum insulin report that corroborated foul play in the incident. The blood sample collected from cardiac cavity showed larger value of insulin than the highest standards. While normally the insulin level ranges within 25 uIU/ml, deceased’s bloodstream had 285.10 uIU/ml of insulin at the time of death. According to deceased’s relatives, Ritu was not diabetic and was never induced insulin before she was admitted to the hospital. The forensics reports too noted subsequently that only intravenous infusion (external infusion) can lead to such extraordinarily high insulin levels and deceased’s husband was booked under IPC section 302 (murder charges).

This week, serious hackers are gathering in Las Vegas to attend Def Con 19, which follows closely on the heels of the Black Hat Technical Security Training and Briefings

A health tech-related demonstration with chilling implications that could have leapt right off the pages of a medical mystery thriller took place yesterday at the Black Hat event.

Imagine the following scenario: a Type I diabetic dies suddenly from an insulin overdose. Authorities assume that the pump was improperly programmed by the user, or that it malfunctioned. As the plot thickens and unfurls, it’s discovered that a hacker hit man with a vendetta against the patient, or the pump manufacturer (or both) wirelessly hacked the device to deliver a lethal dose of insulin while sitting innocuously across the coffee shop from his unsuspecting victim, sipping a latte.


Diabetes Patients Prefer Medicines over Lifestyle.

It is assumed that people who suffer from chronic diseases will listen to Doctors advice,at least the informed.

But recent survey confirms what I have been saying, that people with such diseases do not take Doctor’s advice seriously under the mistaken impression that the medicines shall take care of Diabetes.

I have seen people eating sweets and other sugar rich food stating that they shall take additional tablet to offset the effect of additional sugar intake.

Diabetics must remember that Diabetes is  manageable,an euphemism by Doctors that it is not curable.

Diet and change in Lifestyle is the answer.

Please read my blogs under Health.

Most type 2 diabetes patients are well informed about their disease and have good access to health care, though they still choose to live unhealthy lifestyles, according to a study from SHIELD, The Study to Help Improve Early Evaluation and Management released Tuesday.

In the largest nongovernmental study of its kind, researchers found that while awareness surrounding diabetes has increased in the last decade, preventative measures have not been taken more seriously.

Almost one in five people with type 2 diabetes said they preferred to take medicine for their health problems instead of changing their lifestyle.

Researchers found that 87 percent of 3,867 type 2 diabetes respondents in the baseline survey said they knew obesity could add to the beginning of chronic disease.

Specifically, 63 percent of the participants reported that their health professional had recommended an increase in exercise in the last year, but 87 percent said that they had been inactive for the past week before the study.
