ons contain a great deal of ox▓alic acid. When calcium meets oxalic acid, the calcium oxalate they form destroys calcium. If one eats bean curd mixed with green onions▓ over a long time, it can lead to a lack of calcium ca▓using spasms, osteomalacia and fractures. Milk and chocolate Believe it or not, milk and chocolate do not match. While milk is rich in protein and calc▓ium, chocolate contains oxalic acid. Eat▓en together, the calcium from milk and

the▓ oxalic acid of chocolate can combin▓e and form insoluble calcium oxalate, which is not only indigestible but also can cause dia

id can also over-stimulate the stomach and cause diarrhea. Lactic acid dr▓ink and ham Many people like having a sandwich with yogurt. However, ham and bacon in sandwi▓ches, when taken with yogurt, could cause cancer. To extend the preservation of meat products, produc▓ers add nitrate to prevent decay and botulinus. But when nitrate meets organic acid, it can turn into nitrosamine, a carcinogen. Soy milk and egg Soy milk contains nutrition including

vegetable proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. If drunk ▓by itself, it is very nourishing. However, if taken toge▓ther with eggs, it can reduce the activity of protease, which helps the body assimilate protein. Eggs are, of course, very rich in protein. Variou▓s countries coping with the food crisisDuring the food summit, people in the world's most populated Arab country Egypt are ▓complaining about high food prices. And Latin American▓ countries are taking various measures to cope with rising prices. Egypt is dependent on imported food and has been wracked▓ by social unrest as many people struggle with stagnant wages and high inflation.Mohamed Farouk,▓ Cairo resident, said, "Before, with ten Egyptian pounds, about 1.87 US dollars you could get a bottle of oil and one kilo of su▓gar but now it does not even buy one bottle of oil."Egy▓ptian officials also warn about the consequences of the country's increasin▓g population. They say the country shoul▓d use new methods of agriculture, re-cultivate more land to increase crop producti▓on.People in Peru are encouraged to eat more potatoes, since it's cheaper than wheat and corn. And the government will carry out a programme, which will provide fi▓nancial aid to potato farmers to help them▓ to deal with the rising price of fertilizers and low potato prices.The Mexican government plans t▓o give small cash subsidies to 26 million poor Mex

icans▓ to compensate for rising food prices.Brazil is one of the world's largest exporter of bio-fuels. Many countries blame Brazil's sugar-cane based e▓thanol program for rising food prices. Bra▓zil's government has defended the program saying ethanol production only uses about 5 percent of the country's total cultivated area. A▓nd the country's economists say blame should b▓e placed on high oil prices. NEW YORK - American children aren't the only couch potatoes with nearly one third of children globally spending three▓ hours a day or more watching TV or on computers, according to study of over 70,000 teens in 34 nations. From Argentina to Zambia, Regina Guthold of the World Health Organization in ▓Geneva and her colleagues found most childre▓n aren't getting enough exercise and it made no difference if they lived in a rich or a poor country. "With regards to physical activity levels, we did not find much of a difference ▓between poor and rich countries," Guthold told Reuters Health. "Growing up in a poor country does not necessa▓rily mean that kids get more physical activity." The study, published in The Journal of P▓ediatrics, looking at 72,845 schoolchildren aged 13 to▓ 15 from North and South America, Asia, Europe, and the ▓Middle East. The children were surveyed betw▓een 2003 and 2007. The researchers defined adequate physical activity as at least an hour of exercise outside of gym class a

t l▓east five days a week. Children who spent three or more hours a day watching TV, playing computer games, or chatting with friends -- aside▓ from time in school or time spent doing homework -- were classified as sedentary. The resear▓chers found only one quarter of the boys and 15 perce▓nt of the girls were getting enough exercise by these defi▓nitions. A quarter of boys and nearly 30 percent of girls were sedentary and didn't get enough exercise with girls less active than boys in every country aside from Zambia. Uruguay had the highest percentage of active boys, at 42 percent, while Zambia had▓ the lowest, at 8 percent. Girls from India were the most active, with 37 percent meeting exerci▓se recommendations, while girls from Egypt were the least active, with just 4 percent getting adeq▓uate exercise. Children in Myanmar were the least sedentar▓y, with 13 percent of boys and 8 percent of girls classified as sedentary. The most sedentary nati▓ons were St. Lucia and the Cayman Islands, with 58 percent of boys and 64 percent of girls spending at least th▓ree hours a day in sedentary activities. While the study didn't look at the reasons be▓hind the lack of physical activity in various nations, G▓uthold speculated that urbanization could be a factor ▓as well as access to cars and TVs. She said schools can help children become more active by having physical education classes and educating students ab

    out the importance of exercise. Adding lanes for ▓bicycles, pedestrian crossings and other changes to promote walking and biking to and from school ▓could help too, she added. "Even with the limitations that questionnaire data (suffer) from, I guess it's pretty sa▓fe to say that we have a huge problem with physical inac▓tivity among schoolchildren around the globe and that we should take action," said Guthold.

    lt of▓ the war that has dragged on for six years in Eastern Ghouta.Old and young men, as well as children, were riding bicycles and the people there seemed to have overcome the problem of no regular transportation.Bilal Delawa was riding his bicycle▓ with his friend sitting behind him. He sa▓id those bicycles have been important for the people there with the high price of the fuel during the rebels' time."Most people have opted to ride bicycles and it has become the main transportation here in Douma because the fuel was expensive but of course, we favor cars or motorcycles or buses," he said.Another bike▓r Omar al-Ruz said even though the bikes were an a▓cceptable alternative during the war, but they were

nds ...▓ for example, I can't transport goods of 100 kg on this bicycle, maybe 50 kg max," he said.For his part, Bashar Ajweh, another resident ▓of Douma, said that several places for fixi▓ng bicycles were opened in Douma during the war, adding that maintenance workers used to charge very high fees for fixing the bicycles, whose prices ha▓ve jumped 10 folds during the war.He said that he used to buy fuel in plastic cans for his motorcycle but whe▓n

it got so expensive, he parked it and started using both the electric bicycle and the regular ▓one."Bicycles have not only become the main transpor▓tation for regular people but also for workers who move stuff from one place to an▓other but of course lite stuff only," the man said.▓For the people in Douma, the transportation at this moment is important but the more im▓portant thing is food, which has started entering Douma at prices supported by the governm

ent, contrary to the rebel times when the militants used to ▓stockpile food in their warehouses while giving so little to the people at high prices.Dur▓ing a visit for Xinhua and other media outlets to Douma on Sunday, people were lined up to receive free bread bundles provide▓d by the government.Also trucks of foods, like p▓otato, tomato and cucumber, were seen selling food items for the civilians at low prices.People we▓re seen carrying heavy bags of potato whi

le expressing re▓lief that they could finally buy food at low prices, as everything was extremely expensive during the rebels' control in Douma also due▓ to the siege that was imposed on that area and other rebel-held areas in Eastern Ghouta.Since f▓ully capturing it from the rebels early April, the government made several moves to alleviate the suffering of the people who have been largely affected by the war there.A mobile oven has been ▓sent to Douma with
