I received an e-mail today. The header says: Bottled Water Causes Cancer.

The note further said that bottled left in the car causes cancer as attested by Sheryl Crow at the Ellen Degeneres show. This has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels in breast cancer, especially in Australia, the e-mail said.

A doctor (don't know who) said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. The e-mail further encouraged to use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle when you can.
I do not know if this has a scientific basis or what. But those living in the Philippines need not worry about this. Why? Who the heck will drink a boiling-hot-bottled-water-left-in-the-car? Not me and maybe the rest of the Pinay population.

This morning I received an sms message from my sister-in-law informing me of this white van with plate number vmn 550 traipsing South of Manila (Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Las Pinas, Paranaque) abducting children 10 years old and below. Modus Operandi: to get the eyes, liver, kidney and other organs of these children. Organ Harvest Galore! I take a double HUH! WHAT! The sms message further stated that the organs are harvested right inside the van where surgeons sit still waiting for the next patient, err victim.

The story is reinforced by the tale of my hairdresser. She said (while snipping my curls with gusto) that her neighbor's 4 yr old child was abducted from school and has not been found yet. She added that the child of her neighbor's neighbor's friend was found with her guts wide open and some 15,000 pesos stuffed somewhere in between the 3rd and 4th ribs.

True or False? I do not know. What puzzles me though is who are these surgeons doing the harvesting? Who are the buyers of the organs? How can they (the evil ones) just randomly abduct these kids and get their organs without the required matching and whatever needs to be done for a transplant to be successful? Why aren't the authorities doing a massive manhunt of these wicked people?

Kwentong Kutsero? ( fictional vignette?)

  3. I have my doubts. Like what you've said, it's quite difficult to find a match for a randomly (and grotesquely) harvested internal organ. But then again, it doesn't mean it's impossible to have a match. If we place it from the point of view of a business-minded person, it appears that there is no sustainable market for that. And that the opportunities to find a suitable 'buyer' are quite, well, rare I suppose. Nonetheless, it should scare the living daylights out of us if there are indeed real cases of children disappearing, only to reapper with missing pancreas and dangling intestines.
