The parents of Aldi Rizal say their boy started smoking cigarettes at 18 months old when his father, Muhammad, introduced him to the habit. They say Rizal screams, slams his head against the floor and even gets sick with withdrawal if he does not get his cigarettes.
His father pays 50,000 rupiah (five U.S. dollars) every day for two packs of Marlboro cigarettes – Rizal’s favorite. Yet Muhammad, 30, a fisherman, claims his son is in healthy condition, weighing 25 kilograms. Rizal is undergoing a rehabilitation program under the supervision of Indonesia’s National Child Protection Commission.
The commission also provides psychological treatment for the toddler. Footage of the child smoking that had been posted on the video sharing website, YouTube, drew world-wide attention to the incident.
Some cities in Indonesia, including Jakarta, have banned smoking in public places but the rules are widely flouted.
The industry minister said that between 1960-2005, cigarette production jumped more than six-fold to 220 billion cigarettes.

This shit can kill you! Put down the aspartame, It just ain’t church!
Citing only “a danger to health,” Venezuelan officials ordered “Coke Zero” off the shelves and out of the country in an unprecedented move.
President Hugo Chavez officially ordered the Coca-Cola Co. to remove their relatively new zero-calorie soft drink from sale Wednesday.
According to Health Minister Jesus Mantilla:
“The product should be withdrawn from circulation to preserve the health of Venezuelans.”
Aspartame is a very sweet chemical, responsible for a host of health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, brain diseases, migraines, ADHD, etc.
Aspartame breaks down into three components:
This is poisonous alcohol. In the body, methanol breaks down into formaldehyde, which is a poison.
This decreases the amount serotonin in your brain, which leads to mood swings (depressions) and an increased appetite! This is why aspartame is one of the main causes for the current obesity epidemic.
3. Aspartic acid.
This is a neurological toxin comparable to MSG.
The US Department of Health has recorded 92 (!) symptoms following complaints about aspartame. In fact, over 80% of all complaints filed with FDA are related to aspartame consumption!
Some of the brand names for aspartame:
NutraSweet, Equal, NatraTaste, Canderel, Spoonful, Equal-Measure, etc.
Aspartame is used in any of the following products:
Sugarfree, Light, Diet, Zero (Coke, Sprite & Fanta), Coke 007, Pepsi Max, Crystal Clear, Low-Calorie, Crystal Light, No Sugar Added, Sportlife, Stimorol Ice, Stimorol Fusion, Freedent, Mentos, Smint, etc.
If you use any of these products, please watch this investigative report by FOX 5 News.
Do no longer believe the lies of the food industry and the ‘main stream’ media. Contrary to what so-called ‘health experts’ claim, aspartame is NOT safe!
In fact, aspartame is a very sweet poison developed to make people sick so the pharmaceutical industry can sell expensive medication to ‘treat’ the chronic diseases that are caused by it’s use.
Avoid this toxic chemical for 60 days and discover how your health will improve dramatically!

Some of us are or knows someone who is always complaining and making excuses for minor things or things that just seem a bit out of our control. To you I say, look @ Knute and then make an excuse as he is walking again after two decades plus in a wheelchair!
Knute’s story offers hope for many in the TBI population. His new video is a concrete example of how Knute’s hard work and using the Second Step Gait Harness System has made walking again possible, even after 22 wheelchair bound years. Since the previous video, Knute has increased his distance over 500 feet per session walking and only needs ONE assistant with him instead of four. These huge changes mean he is becoming more independent every day!! Through the grace of god, it looks like Knute will be foot working in no time!
