    The most important sentence in the whole article:

    "The results may not apply to people of other ethnic origins with different levels of lactose tolerance, they said. "

    More research is needed into the differences of various dairy foods on our systems -

    "The team found that fermented milk products like cheese or yoghurt were associated with lower mortality and fracture rates, particularly in women."

    Milk jam?? I think 'condensed milk' is the better known name. No food cupboard stocked for the apocalypse should be without it!

    Never, ever, in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would take Hashimoto's side on anything!

    After 19 mins of that I was relieved when the video ended and Sakurai's constant jabbering was silenced. How wonderful if he could be silenced so easily in real life.He really sank to some depths there.

    Having Korean Japanese in-laws I can see the hurt he causes everytime he opens his putrid little mouth.

    Are Koreans really a separate ethnic group? J-hubby (KJ-hubby) tells me that originally the Japanese Emperors were from Korea...

    @CrazyJoeOct.

    Guns most certainly do belong in the right hands, which are those of the law.

    But you don't know which crazy person made the law. Just because it is the law of the land doesn't mean it is a just law. Although I'm sure many a despot would agree with you.

    Such a dilemma. Makes me wonder how many people would help someone die if they asked for it, while knowing the consequences of such action.

    A good friend of mine suffered from depression for many years and finally committed suicide. The thing I am saddest about is that she knew what the consequences would be for all of us, so she had to die alone. If the world were less judgemental I could have been there to hold her hand in her darkest hour. I didn't want her to die, I miss her all the time, but I would have been there for her - not helped her - but just been there. Even in doing that I would have been in trouble. I feel very sorry for this man.

    An hour wait - maybe 'awesome' was not quite the right adjective. If the wait was several hours there is a chance someone could be in awe of that.

    "and if you go on a Saturday, you can expect a line."

    of what?? coke or washing are the only 'lines' that springs to mind!!

    I'm surprised that (as far as I can see) no-one has yet said the obvious:

    "A fool and his money are soon parted."

    I drive along miles of unlit country roads every day, in the winter it is dark for the whole journey. It is sometimes extremely hard to see a person on the road due to angles of corners, shadows cast, angle of headlights, for example. I have narrowly missed someone in these circumstances because I couldn't see them until I was almost upon them (and I always drive carefully as you never know when a deer will jump out into the road). From my experience, people who don't drive are unable to know just how invisible they can be to a driver. In my opinion this was a tragic accident, but an accident none the less.

    Families with kids (sic) would be well advised to take out such a policy, which Kihira points out is quite affordable and will ensure peace of mind.

    Insurance - the greatest scam of the modern world. Plays on fear of the future. I wonder how the actuaries work out the odds of a child cutting another's head off... And what the 'appropriate' (don't get me started on the current use of THAT word) payment would be...

    I'm with you on that! What do they do with it in Nipponland?!

    I can make a roll last a month. Mr Kittychosen, on the otherhand, is a J-hubby and will get through the same in half a day. Repeated warnings that the old pipes & septic tank can't take it fall on deaf ears. He now buys his own supply.

    If the earth were unlikely enough to move here in old Blighty (where there is nowhere so safe as the ground beneath your feet) I'd like to think a dock leaf would suffice - should the need arise.

    @SaitamaRefugee

    If you read the whole sentence about the tiger you will get my meaning. It is the concept of 'rights' that is ridiculous. If you have a right to molest me (as a tiger has a right to eat me) then you have a responsibility to not do that. People do not always carry out their responsibilities, so others have to make allowances for that.

    Well, focusing on the fact she was a woman -she is a woman and generally us women do not have the strength of a man. It could also apply to a man of weaker strength than another. And generally it is men that do the attacking!

    I don't recall saying it was a sex-crime, I did not mention sexual assault. I only said 'molest'.

    I am only using my experience of several decades on this planet and I do know that a woman in skimpy clothing is far more likely to be molested than a covered woman. I believe it's called temptation!

    Marvellous news for all those smokers on long haul flights. Now all we have to do is smoke like troopers to keep our plane from falling out of the sky! Simple.

    @Crush Them

    Thank you for your so very sane and logical comments.

    You wouldn't believe how many women HAVE shouted me down! (Where does the idea of 'sisters' come from I wonder?!) It has been suggested to me that I walk alone at night to enforce my RIGHTS (how they work that out is beyond me). However I think if I had taken that advise I would not be here now to type this!

    If it is my right not to be eaten by a tiger, will it prevent the tiger from eating me (as his his right)? If I have a right to be unmolested then it will not prevent a man from molesting me (as is his right). Rights come with responsibilities, and my responsibility is to keep myself safe.

    I do hope that the victim in the story was not in high heels, short skirt, staring into keitai as she trotted unsteadily down a dark street. But sadly, this is Japan and I fear she probably was.

    I, as a woman, would never in my right mind walk home alone at 3.30am in a town or city! In the countryside, where I am now, I would sooner dive into the hedge rather than let a strange car spot me at night. Why should I assume that because I live in a so-called 'civllised' society, that all civilians will be able to put instinct aside and leave me unmolested? I prefer to assume that human nature is what it is, has not changed throughout history, so therefore I should take precautions.

    In the past I have used all of the following: A basic knowledge of some self-defence moves, a male friend as chaperone, a large dog (friendly, but loyal & has teeth), flat shoes (for running), large umbrella (hit/poke/prod/brandish) & a very loud scream (if they get within comfort zone). Oh and a 'don't even think about it' glare if anyone looks like they are thinking of approaching me.

    It's called survival, and I have survived.

    Ah-ha, that would explain it; the lost-in-translation has a lot to answer for! So many Japanese words seem to encompass at least two English words, therefore making specific translation difficult at times.

    'Fist bump', what a silly word - and a silly action.

    A handshake shows you do not conceal a weapon, that you show trust and look the other in the eye, and that you can get a good impression of the kind of person you are dealing with.

    A 'fist bump' makes me think of teenagers trying to be cool, not something you wish to convey to a colleague.

    If it's germs that worry, then just bow: respectful, graceful and hygenic!
