Knowing more about Tobacco Harm Reduction

Monday, November 22, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

In general, I have few smokers friends and even my family members who used to smoke at home quite frequently when I was a little girl. I still recall it and myself can't tolerate with the smoke and smell. The surroundings is polluted. Exposure to secondhand smoke can cause coronary heart disease and lung cancer in non-smokers, and increase the risk of: Respiratory diseases (such as asthma, bronchitis, and pneumonia).



Tobacco is harmful and dangerous.
When tobacco is burned, it creates over 7,000 dangerous new chemicals, and just one puff could also release more than 70 cancer-causing chemicals! And as these puffs are released to the surroundings, they bring with them a long list of chronic smoking-related diseases such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), heart diseases, stroke and many more – harming not only the smokers, but also anyone that passes by and shares the same polluted air!

We do understand it is not easy to get rid of being a smokers in short period but we can get to know more on how  Tobacco Harm Reduction and some alternatives to reduce the risk for those smokers who unwilling to quit.

Let me share with you some interesting facts on Tobacco Harm Reduction

What is Harm Reduction?

The guiding principle of Harm Reduction believes in opening up avenues to alternatives that can help prevent or eradicate harm-inducing habits or activities that are essentials in order to build a better and healthier Malaysia.

What is Tobacco Harm Reduction?

Tobacco harm reduction (THR) believes that reducing the levels of harm from tobacco use among smokers is the priority because eliminating exposure to nicotine is not always achievable. Thus, the main objective of THR is to help smokers switch to less harmful alternatives.



These are the suggested options for risk reducing alternatives to help smokers:-

1.E-Cigarettes

Examples: Vape, vape pens, e-hookah, e-pipe, e-cigars and many more. 

What is it: A battery-operated device that does not contain tobacco. Instead, it works by heating an e-liquid to emit a vaporized solution upon inhalation to simulate tobacco smoking (but with relatively less harmful vapor!). The e-liquid typically contains a mixture of chemicals, artificial flavourings, and nicotine. However, options for non-nicotine e-cigarettes are also available.


2. Heated Tobacco Products (HTPs)

Examples: IQOS, Ploom TECH, PAX, Glo and many more. 

What is it: HTPs are devices that employ battery-powered heating systems to heat tobacco to produce nicotine. Unlike cigarettes, HTPs do not burn tobacco, but as its name implies, heats it before allowing it to reach its combustion point.

3. Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

Examples: Nicotine infused products such as gum, patches, lozenges, inhalers and more. 

What is it: A commonly used, medically approved method that administers nicotine to a user without the harmful chemicals found in tobacco. NRT comes in many sizes, shapes, and forms, designed to help those who quit smoking - especially those who suffer from severe nicotine withdrawal symptoms. NRTs are widely available at pharmacies. 

4. Smokeless Tobacco

Examples: Snus, snuff tobacco or chewing tobacco.

What is it: Smokeless tobacco supplies nicotine without the combustion of tobacco and is administered either orally or nasally. As it does not involve the combustion of tobacco, therefore presenting no risks without smoke inhalation, smokeless tobacco is generally considered less harmful than smoking cigarettes - albeit, addictive.


In a nutshell, Tobacco smoking is a leading cause of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. For smokers who want to quit, nicotine replacement therapy and bupropion are frequently recommended. 

Why you should Quit smoking? Improves health status and enhances quality of life, reduces the risk for many adverse health effects, including poor reproductive health outcomes, cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cancer.

While quitting earlier in life yields greater health benefits, quitting smoking is beneficial to health at any age. Even people who have smoked for many years or have smoked heavily will benefit from quitting.

Strong shopping activity on Shopee 11.11 Big Sale as Malaysia’s economy reopens

Friday, November 19, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

The reopening of the economic sector has not slowed down e-commerce demand. In fact, Shopee has wrapped up its most successful 11.11 Big Sale, with more Malaysians able to enjoy exclusive deals, bigger savings, and the widest variety on the platform.

On 11 November, Shopee users in Malaysia continued to stock up on groceries such as Milo, cereal, instant noodles and fresh fruits and vegetables. More than 1.8 million home improvement and decoration products were also sold on Shopee. 



With Malaysians resuming their out-of-home activities, health and personal care supplies on Shopee such as face masks continue to be one of the top products purchased. The product recorded a sellout of more than 13 million pieces whereas Covid-19 test kits saw close to 30,000 units sold on 11 November as Malaysians are reminded of their responsibilities and the Government’s call to ensure their safety as well as others around them. 

Shopee saw the same robust support for 11.11 Big Sale across the region. Over 2 billion items were bought throughout the festival period, smashing Shopee’s previous record set in 2020. Excitement peaked on 11 November, with visits spiking 5.5 times in the first two hours compared to an average day.

Shopee’s year-end shopping festivals continued to bridge millions of Malaysians with brands and sellers. As such, offline merchants also enjoyed the surge in online-first customers to their outlets when users collectively claimed over 5 million in ShopeePay Vouchers through ‘Deals Near Me’ across the 11.11 Big Sale shopping festival period. 

Entertainment continues to be a core part of the online shopping experience. Throughout the 11.11 Big Sale, Malaysians also spent more time connecting to sellers and watching their favourite celebrities on live streams, with a total of 4.8 million hours spent watching on Shopee Live. More than 41 million Golden Tickets were also given out as users played Tap & Win A Condo and Spin & Win for a chance to win a condominium unit worth over RM500,000 at SkyMeridien Residences @ Sentul East, and a BMW 218i Grand Coupé M Sport, respectively.  

Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee said, “It brings us great joy to see the impact of our efforts on shoppers, businesses and the local community. The digital economy and e-commerce continue to present many opportunities for growth. We want to enable more people to benefit from this growth by increasing e-commerce adoption and helping more consumers and businesses come online and connecting them with one another.” 

11.11 Big Sale has encouraged more people to access and enjoy the benefits of online shopping, particularly those outside major cities where digital awareness has been relatively lower. Across the region, a 5 times increase  was noted in the number of shoppers from rural and smaller towns, whilst ShopeePay transactions outside the big cities grew 9 times from an average day as users pay for their Shopee orders seamlessly.

For businesses in the region, the 11.11 Big Sale was a springboard for growth and recovery. Local sellers benefitted from the spike in shopping activity, with those joining 11.11 for the first time saw their orders on 11 November soared 18 times compared to an average day.

Anlene to educate Malaysians on bone care in conjunction with World Osteoporosis Day

Thursday, November 04, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

In a recent survey conducted among Malaysians aged 40 to 59 years, it was found that 95% of respondents are concerned about their bone health and how it may affect their strength and mobility when they are older. The top three contributing factors they cited for their concerns are lack of exercise, insufficient exposure to sunlight (for production of vitamin D in the body to aid calcium absorption), and avoiding dairy products (which are daily sources of calcium) in their diet. 



Findings from the survey also indicated, while middle-aged Malaysians understand the importance of having strong bones, 42% say their current focus is to protect themselves from getting COVID-19; and 33% say they are already doing their best for their health including bone health. 

The survey was initiated by Anlene, Malaysia’s No. 1 Adult Milk Powder* and an advocate of strong bones, joints and muscles through good nutrition coupled with an active lifestyle. It was conducted blindly earlier in August among 320 middle-aged respondents to gain insights into their awareness of and viewpoint towards bone care and health in general.

“From their responses, we found there are still gaps in their understanding of bone health, especially when it comes to areas of bone care and whether they are doing enough to support their bones, which work together with joints and muscles to help us move and live our daily lives,” said Puan Megawati Suzari, Director of New Product Development, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs at Fonterra Brands Malaysia.

To help Malaysians understand bone health better and to encourage them to pay more attention to care for their bones, Anlene is launching an educational campaign in conjunction with World Osteoporosis Day 2021, which falls on 20 October annually. The campaign will highlight how our bones may start to deteriorate after they reach peak bone mass at about the age of 30, which makes it necessary for everyone to make lifestyle interventions to help slow down this process, so our bones can continue to support an active lifestyle with good mobility into the silver years.

Megawati advised: “Malaysian adults can take care of their bone health by doing regular exercises to help build muscles and maintain strong bones; and eating a balanced diet that contains important nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D and protein. Maintaining body weight within a normal range of body mass index is also important, as being underweight (Body Mass Index of less than 19kg/m2) may affect our bones. Interestingly, Anlene’s survey also found that 30% of the respondents do not know how much calcium and vitamin D to take daily; and only 30% of the respondents drink milk every day. To this, Megawati further explained: “Adults are advised to consume 1000 – 1200mg of calcium and 15 – 20mcg of vitamin D in a day, as part of their daily bone care routine. However, many are not aware that, in a typical diet that is lacking in calcium rich foods, it may be difficult for us to meet our daily calcium needs. For example, we may need to consume 200 – 240 bowls of cooked rice to get all the daily calcium we need.

Hence, identifying and consuming calcium rich food sources are important part of a balanced diet. In fact, calcium can be found in food sources such as milk, leafy green vegetables, anchovies, soy products or other calcium fortified products. While vitamin D can be found in fatty fish (e.g. salmon, sardine), egg yolk and vitamin D fortified products including milk.” She added: “As such, we encourage all adults to make smart food choices and consume a balanced diet which consist of milk. Milk products that contains key nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D and protein can help to meet their daily nutritional needs”. For example, each glass of Anlene™ milk comes with key nutrients that are important to support adults’ daily nutritional needs. The ACTIFIT 3X™ range comes with high calcium, high protein, collagen, and vitamins B2, B6, B12, C, D, and E. While Anlene™ GOLD 5X™ is scientifically formulated for adults aged 45 years and above, with key nutrients as above, plus MFGM Active™, that provides milk fat globule membrane. It also has no added sugars.
Recent study shows that participants who consumed 2 glasses of milk added with MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane) and important nutrients plus regular exercises everyday, had 2 times the improvement in flexibility, 3 times the improvement in balance and 40% more improvement in muscle mass compared to control.


Speaking in a TV talk show as part of Anlene’s World Osteoporosis Day campaign, Associate Professor Dr Nor Faissal Yasin, Consultant

Orthopaedic Surgeon, University Malaya Medical Centre and UM Specialist Centre, advised Malaysian adults to look at risks of developing bone related diseases, such as osteoporosis which may affect nearly 1 in 4 Malaysian adults (mostly women) aged 50 years and above. “Osteoporosis is a silent disease which is often diagnosed when a fragility fracture occurs, commonly in the wrist, hip or back bones. Its risk factors include a diet low in calcium and vitamin D, lack of physical activity, underweight, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, advanced age, as well as family history,” said Dr Nor Faissal. “Middle-aged adults should take bone care seriously. Prevention of getting osteoporosis is a lifelong journey, which can be started by adopting good lifestyle habits including good dietary practices and stay physically active by moving more throughout the day. Besides, Malaysians 60 years and above are also recommended to consult a healthcare professional to assess their bone health annually,” he advised.

As strong bones are one of the foundations to support mobility, find out what is your Move Age by assessing your posture, strength, flexibility and balance with the Anlene Move Check online quiz https://movecheckquiz.anlene.net.my/ .

To celebrate its 54th anniversary after two years of pandemic-driven challenges Guardian Malaysia today launched its #guardiancare  initiative to focus on caring for the health of  customers and the community.

Angela Teo, Head of Marketing, Guardian Health & Beauty Sdn Bhd said: “#guardiancare is a sustainability initiative, that cares for our customers, their family, the shopping choices they make and also for the community they live in.

“We would like to inspire and empower customers to make healthy and sustainable choices when it comes to choosing the health and beauty brands they trust at Guardian.  At the end of the day, we want our customers to ‘care’ about what they buy and in turn, make the environment better.

“At Guardian, we believe that beauty begins from the inside.  By choosing to care, together we can make a difference.” 

Consequently, the initiative is centred around ‘because i care’ sentiment,  and will  focus on three key pillars  connected to  Guardian’s brand purpose. They are:  

1. Health – good health and well-being of our customers and the communities

2. Community – educating the community on their health concerns

3. Environment – promoting responsible consumption and production practices, reducing single plastic use

The "i Care’ sentiment as reflected in the logo  


To launch this initiative, Guardian is kicking off their Health campaign by giving away 10,000 #guardiancare packs, worth a total of RM400,000, to school children in 30 schools throughout the nation, in partnership with Yayasan Perintis Malaysia. Each #guardiancare pack will contain a specially designed Covid-19 Handbook, which has been approved by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health and hygiene products such as handwash, sanitizers, face mask, tissue paper and Gummies for kids vitamins.  These #guardiancare packs will be distributed to B40 schoolchildren at schools identified by nearby Guardian stores.


For the second pillar of Community and its health, Guardian, which has the largest network of pharmacists in South East Asia, will actively educate the community on important health issues and concerns especially during these Covid-19 times through Guardian’s social media platforms and in-store activations.

Guardian has started its Pharmacist Community Outreach programme through Facebook Live segments and Instagram where our followers can ask the Pharmacist any health concern questions ‘live’ and get their answers instantly.

In addition, Guardian will also educate consumers on products that offer ’Clean beauty’ with natural or green ingredients and also products that are ‘Cruelty free’ (not tested on animals) and with sustainable packaging, products that are packed in re-cyclable or re-useable packaging.

To care for the Environment, Guardian has introduced a special Eco-friendly re-useable #guardiancare bag in their stores now which will sell for only RM1.

“In conjunction with Malaysia’s National Environment Day celebrated on 21 October 2021, we would like reduce consumption of single use plastic bags in our stores by encouraging our customers to use these #guardiancare bags instead which can be re-used many times and last a long time.   The bags can carry far more weight than single use plastic bags.  In this way, both our customers and Guardian are caring for the planet together,” Angela said.   

“We hope our customers can join and support us on this #guardiancare journey that we have embarked.  As you can see, there are many iCare programs running and we will continue to introduce more in 2022 to ensure #guardiancare becomes an important aspect of their lives with great benefits to them, their families and their community at large,” added Angela. 

To further reward our customers in this Anniversary month, Guardian has put together a massive 54th Anniversary Shopping Bonanza, on all its social media platforms, with special offers of 54% off on the purchase of the second item in the personal care, health care and skin care, Botaneco hair and bath range of items.  There are also Buy 1 Free 1 promotion for cosmetics including a Shop & Win contest on Guardian’s Facebook where all they need to do is to like the Guardian 54th Anniversary Bonanza Shop & Win post and PM their Guardian receipt for purchases from 1October to 27 October to be in the running for five prizes of a Surprise Box worth RM400 each to be won.    




There is also a Shop, Wave and Win contest with MyDebit running from 1 October until 31 December 2021.  All customers need to do is to spend a minimum of RM30 in a single receipt by using MyDebit with their ATM card and stand a chance to win a share of prizes worth RM520,000 over three monthly draws.  Additionally, there is also a GrabPay deal where customers will get a RM6 discount with a minimum spend of RM60 on a single receipt using GrabPay valid from 1 to 31 October 2021.
