Even though your chance of dying of that cancer instead of something else would shorten your life expectancy by perhaps a millisecond or so. At best this argument is patronizing, at worst is it offensively arrogant — so what if YOU have lived outside of Singapore?

Types of evidence mentioned were identified, and the scientific papers cited were reviewed. Remind California that they are a former colony of Mexico, and they should ask Mexico for assistance.

No data so far. Hi Could someone tell me what actually happens to the body on a daily, weekly,monthly basis after quitting alcohol. Hi Chris, Moderate drinker is too broad a term to be able to give an accurate answer to those questions.
Dear Josh, Do recovering alchoholics become short tempered and irritable? If so, is there any way to mitigate these symptoms? I am dealing with an recovering alchoholic who drank himself to oblivion every night. Hello I want to quit drinking alcohol but am worried about the side effects. EPA has set the maximum contaminant level goal for lead in drinking water at zero because lead is a toxic metal that can be harmful to human health even at low exposure levels. Lead is persistent, and it can bioaccumulate in the body over time.
Young children, infants, and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead because the physical and behavioral effects of lead occur at lower exposure levels in children than in adults. A dose of lead that would have little effect on an adult can have a significant effect on a child. In children, low levels of exposure have been linked to damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, shorter stature, impaired hearing, and impaired formation and function of blood cells.
It is important to recognize all the ways a child can be exposed to lead. Children are exposed to lead in paint, dust, soil, air, and food, as well as drinking water.
If the level of lead in a child's blood is at or above the CDC action level of 5 micrograms per deciliter, it may be due to lead exposures from a combination of sources. Infants who consume mostly mixed formula can receive 40 percent to 60 percent of their exposure to lead from drinking water. Lead can accumulate in our bodies over time, where it is stored in bones along with calcium. During pregnancy, lead is released from bones as maternal calcium and is used to help form the bones of the fetus.
This is particularly true if a woman does not have enough dietary calcium. Lead can also cross the placental barrier exposing the fetus to lead. This can result in serious effects to the mother and her developing fetus, including:. Lead can also be transmitted through breast milk.

Human skin does not absorb lead in water. This information applies to most situations and to a large majority of the population, but individual circumstances may vary. Some situations, such as cases involving highly corrosive water, may require additional recommendations or more stringent actions. Your local water authority is always your first source for testing and identifying lead contamination in your tap water. Many public water authorities have websites that include data on drinking water quality, including results of lead testing.
EPA requires all community water systems to prepare and deliver an annual water quality report called a Consumer Confidence Report CCR for their customers by July 1 of each year. Contact your water utility if you'd like to receive a copy of their latest report. Obviously, the risk of polluting the MRT train by eating sweets is completely non-existent as long as the commuter throws the sweet wrappers away properly in rubbish bins.
There is absolutely no reason why commuters should be forbidden from eating sweets to relieve motion sickness. Have we lost all sense of compassion in a bid to follow the letter of the law, never mind the spirit of the law?
The reporter ended her video presentation on the note: The crackdown by SMRT officers on commuters who eat and drink aboard trains is due to the recent spate of videos posted on STOMP showing youngsters blatantly flouting the rules by eating burgers and drinking soft drinks in the MRT. They must have also come under intense pressure by LTA to act swiftly and make a grand show of it. Cherry picking on the weak and easily bullied is a technique often used by the PAP to frighten Singaporeans into submission.
The irony of this whole episode is that the majority of Singaporeans understand and accept why eating and drinking aboard the MRT should be disallowed. But clearly, there is always room to be flexible and to allow for basic common sense and human decency to prevail.
Making such a ridiculous spectacle of punishing a commuter just because she had to eat a sweet to relieve motion sickness can only serve to antagonize other commuters, even those who are used to obeying the rules. The problem with our Government and with the civil service in general is that when orders are passed down from the top, officers often suspend their own common sense and their sense of right and wrong in an attempt at giving their superiors the impression that the instructions are being rigorously followed.
They forget why the law is passed and why rules are made to begin with. They ignore the spirit of the law. That is the cancer that is infecting the Singapore system — people not exercising their own minds and using their own judgment and initiative, but merely following orders blindly and behaving in a ludicrous fashion in order to suck up to their bosses.
Just like the way the town councils enforced the rules of walkway display by the shops after 2 persons died in Hougang Fire almost 2 years ago. Now the walkways are clogged again … waiting for the next tragedy to happen. How is it the interviewer, camera-man, and Roger Foo were all within camera range of the well groomed sweet chewing offender? What next, ban all water bottles on MRT coaches in case someone takes a sip? Fine babies for feeding on breast milk? Rather, I believe that the enforcement officer was repressing his in order to follow the rule to the letter.
In which case, those people ought to fine themselves first for drinking their own saliva. I had hardly board mrt for these years.
For the above case, the lady should be given fine provided she littered the wrapper. What happen if she is a diabetes? She fainted for not taking safety measures to stop her low blood sugar? I was also fined a few months back.. It was in the morning and I was rushing to work as i woke up late.
