A Malaysian doctor tells the population his remedy to avoid the A(H1N1) swine flu virus is to stop masturbating and engaging in homosexual activities. Is this guy a nutcase?
Here is part of the article by John Le Fevre: “A doctor in Malaysia has said that avoiding masturbation and homosexual activities are among preventive measures people can take to reduce their chances of contracting the virus.
Dr. V.M. Palaniappan, an eminent practitioner of complimentary therapy, said that such activities caused the body to develop friction heat which in turn, produced acid and made the body hyperacidised.
Dr. Palaniappan told Bernama, the Malaysian national news agency, that masturbation and homosexual activity made “the body becomes an easy target for pandemic A(H1N1) infection,” however, the normal sexual union between members of the opposite sex was absolutely safe.
Dr Palaniappan, a former associate professor of ecology at University Malaya, said his 33 years of research had shown that high acidity in the body resulted in loss of immunity, thus making people more susceptible to viral diseases such as pandemic A(H1N1).
The doctor said to prevent acidity, it was essential to consume alkaline food and drinks that could neutralize excess acid in the body.
He recommended people drink coconut water, which is alkaline, and therefore could be used as an herbal medicine for the prevention of pandemic A(H1N1), along with orange, lemon and pomelo which, despite containing citric acid, were very rich in potassium and therefore, would not disturb the body's immunity.”
