Quick notes: Indian startups, Cooking oil...

  • Indian versus foreign: Uber sold its China business to rival Didi Chuxing, after having invested $2 billion. The move highlighted how it is very hard for non-Chinese companies to win in the Chinese market.  But it’s not the same in India, where both Amazon and Uber have been thriving and giving local companies a tough time, even harming the Indian market.


  • How to Choose the Right Cooking Oil: Keep omega-6 and omega-3 intake in balance. Mustard oil has the best omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.


  • Fish, poultry offer as many problems to the human body as red meat: The body has no mechanism for storing excess protein. It elimi­nates it through the formation of urea in the liver. When urea and amino acids — which are a components of protein — enter the kid­neys to be eliminated in urine, they cause loss of water and large amounts of minerals — mainly calcium. A few ounces of chick­en or fish, a cup of low fat cottage cheese, and your system has been swamped with enough proteins to cause a negative calcium balance. Other offshoots of excess protein are liver disease, kidney failure — and obesity.


  • How much public space we've surrendered to cars:

Yes, cars are evil. We should all drive bicycles and bullock carts like in Somalia or Swaziland. After all, these nations are so clean and pollution free without those evil cars.
