Very Shocking - Ginseng in China

No one could accuse the Chinese of being squeamish about the things they eat – monkeys' brains, owls' eyes, bears' paws and deep fried scorpions are all items on the menu. But most dishes revered as national favourites sound as harmless as boiled rice when compared to the latest pint de jour allegedly gaining favour in Shenzhen – human foetus.
Rumours that dead embryos were being used as dietary supplements started to spread early last year with reports that some doctors in Shenzhen hospitals were eating dead foetuses after carrying out abortions. The doctors allegedly defended their actions by saying the embryos were good for their skin and general health.

More Shocking Story

Guisborough mum Anthea Harrison, 36, told how she may have eaten human flesh while living in Zambia. She rang up TFM after presenter Graham Mack invited listeners to describe the most unusual thing they had ever eaten during a discussion about TV show I’m A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here.



The mum-of-two, who gave only her first name, phoned in claiming “I’ve eaten human being,” leaving the breakfast DJ stunned.
She said on air: “When I was a child we lived in Africa and we always went to the same butcher. We were there a couple of years and the meat started getting so much better.
“It was only after we moved back to England a couple of years later we realised the butcher had been arrested. He was killing little black girls and selling the meat.”

Now, after a Gazette request for Anthea to come forward, the Guisborough mum has explained her story.

Girl's body found in fridge: China media


The girl's mother holds the girl's photo.

A four-year-old girl's dismembered body has been found in a fridge in southern China, leading to the arrest of a man who allegedly once said human flesh was "delicious", state media reported.
The 35 years old migrant worker surnamed Zhang, a native of Sichuan, who is believed to be mentally ill, was detained after blood was discovered outside his apartment in Guangzhou city, which police traced to him, the Guangzhou Daily reported. It identified him by his nickname, A He.
Police found the remains of the child, named Li Lingli, who went missing on Friday morning, inside a small fridge in A He's room, the report said.
The girl's disappearance had prompted a police search of the 50 rental apartments in the compound, the report said. Li's grandmother was reportedly the first to spot the blood outside the apartment door.
Though the police are yet to ascertain the motive behind the murder, the newspaper quoted Zhang's neighbors as saying: "He (Zhang) said that he found human flesh rather delicious once when he was watching a violent movie."

Young cannibal eats his grandmother while she is alive

A resident of Simferopol, Sergey Zhnarev, attacked his own grandmother and brutally killed her with a piece of mirror. The 60-year-old woman, named Lidia, died a terrible death: her grandson pulled her eyes out of the sockets, chopped off other body parts and ate the human flesh while the victim was still alive.

The woman was conscious during the monstrous act of cannibalism. She was doing her best to fight the attacker, but the man cut off the victim's tongue and ate it too. The woman eventually died from the pain shock.

However, the woman's neighbors heard the terrible screams and called the police. When the police broke into the apartment, they saw the insane man standing in the middle of the room in his underwear only. He was all covered with the victim's blood. The man was praying holding a cross in his hands. The maniac was certain that he was conducting a mourning ceremony for his grandmother's body.

Sergey was growing as a quiet man. He received a technical education and worked as a software specialist. However, his neighbors described him as a religious fanatic. Sergey started living with his grandmother after his parents divorced.

The court ordered to put the 26-year-old man into a mental institution. "He will be put on trial after the treatment," a judge said.

The former technician, whose story reached even the British press, does not regret what he had done. He only said he was sorry he would not eat his grandmother's cakes anymore.

The cannibal told psychologists of the mental institution that there were voices living in his head. The voices supposedly told the man how the old lady must be killed.

Pakistani woman kills, tries to cook hubby

Zainab Bibi has given an interview with Pakistan television, where she admitted to killing, chopping up and cooking her husband

Pakistani police on Thursday arrested a woman who had killed her husband and was attempting to cook his body parts after he planned to marry another woman without her permission.

The police arrested Zainab Bibi, 32, and her nephew Zaheer, 22, in the Shah Faisal colony of Karachi,
and recovered the bowl of flesh she planned to cook, said police chief for the area Nadeem Baig.

"They killed Ahmed Abbas, Zainab's husband, and chopped his body into pieces and were about to cook the flesh in a bowl," he told AFP, adding that the knife with which they killed the man had been recovered.

Television networks showed gruesome footage of the human flesh in a bowl ready for the stove.

A neighbour had alerted the police and investigations were ongoing, said Baig.

"There could be two factors behind her intention to cook the husband. One is to destroy the evidence and the other could be her immense hatred against him," over his plan to marry another woman, he said.

According to family law in the Islamic country, a man has get permission from his first wife before his second marriage, but the law is rarely observed.

Dutch TV presenters cause cannibalism storm after eating each other's flesh

In a twist to television cookery shows, two Dutch presenters are filmed eating each other's flesh for a TV show due to be aired on Dutch television. Presenters Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno both allegedly underwent surgery to remove small pieces of flesh from their bodies prior to the aptly titled show Proefkonijnen, meaning Guinea Pigs, which is scheduled to be broadcast in the Netherlands on Wednesday.


Storm was filmed having surgery to remove a piece of his bottom whilst Zeno gave up part of his abdomen. The pair were then challenged to eat each other's body part after it had been fried in sunflower oil by a TV chef. In the trailer for the show the duo sit down at a candlelit table to eat the morsels, although the footage does not show the cannibalism occurring.



The teaser clip has already prompted outcry, being labelled as 'sick' and 'grim' by viewers, and has raised questions over the legality of the stunt. The presenters have refuted suggestions that the cannibalism was illegal as they claim both entered into the challenge voluntarily. Speaking to an American news channel, Dennis Storm claimed the stunt was designed to answer "a stupid question".

He said: "The punchline of the show is to get really simple answers to stupid questions, such as, 'Can you shave with ketchup' or 'Can you drive blind?' And we wanted to find out how human flesh tasted. It was just a few centimetres of meat and now I have a good story about that scar."

Milan Jurisic Killed And Eaten Allegedly By Serbian Mafia Members


Serbian gangsters allegedly beat a traitorous associate to death with a hammer before cooking and eating his remains in Spain, police said.

Members of the Zemun Clan -- which was behind the assassination of Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic in 2003 -- dined on the remains of Milan Jurisic, 37, after he stole from the group, according to Sky News.

After Jurisic was beaten to death, his enemies flayed him with a sharp knife and put his flesh through a meat grinder in Madrid, the Daily Mail said.They threw his bones in the River Manzanares.

The grisly tale was retold to Croatian police by captured Zemun Clan member, Sretko Kalinic, nicknamed "The Butcher."

Spanish police found bones in the apartment where Jurisic was allegedly dismembered and in the river this week.

It's believed he was murdered in 2009 while on the run following his conviction in absentia for the hit on Djindjic.

Police suspect that Luka Bojovic was the ringleader of the cannibalistic murder. Bojovic was captured in Valencia last month -- he was a fugitive that was also convicted for killing the Serbian prime minister.

Documents found in Bojovic's apartment allegedly corroborated the account told by "The Butcher," Metro said.

Russian cannibal killer ate victims' livers to impress his girlfriend


An alleged serial killer who practiced cannibalism has been arrested in Central Russia. The detainee has confessed to at least six murders, but the number of victims could be higher. Reports say the accused wanted to impress his girlfriend.

­

Twenty-four-year-old Aleksandr Bychkov was initially arrested in Russia’s Penza Region on suspicion of involvement in a hardware store robbery. However, while being questioned Bychkov suddenly began telling police about corpses he had buried in a ravine near his home. According to the police spokesperson, investigators found the remains of six people. They were “recovered from the ground and sent for examination.”

The examination revealed that Bychkov had chopped his victims into pieces. He then cut out their livers and ate them. "The facts of cannibalism in some episodes did take place," a high-ranking source from law enforcement body in the region confirmed. Reports say Bychkov had been trying to impress his girlfriend by killing and eating people – or it least to pluck up some courage to see her.

“She blanked me. She said I’m spineless, and I am a lone wolf. I’ll prove it. She doesn’t know and I cannot tell her anything,” Bychkov reportedly wrote in his diary. Bychkov has already told police of a grave with a seventh body. Law enforcers suspect he may have been involved in more murders, since quite a number of people went missing in the region between 2009 and 2011.


UPDATE:15 APRIL 2012

Brazilian cult members arrested for cannibalism




Brazilian police announced on Friday that they had arrested a man and two women on suspicion of having murdered and cannibalized at least two women in what was described as a purification ritual. The three defendants formed a sect called "Cartel" that seeks to purify the world and reduce the population, police spokesman Democrito Honorato from the northeastern Brazilian town of Guaranhuns said. The three defendants, Jorge and Elizabeth Pires da Silveira, both 51, and Bruna da Silva, 25, intended to kill three women per year, police said.

"The details of the actions of the trio, with drawings and explanations of cannibalism, were found in a 50-page book written by Da Silveira, a man with a diploma in education and a black belt in karate," Honorato said. The book, entitled "The relationships of a schizophrenic," hints at acts of cannibalism. "The three ate the flesh of their victims to purify their souls," said the police spokesman.

Two bodies were found in the garden of the house occupied by the three defendants, which police believe were those of two women who disappeared recently: Alexandra Falcao, 20, and Gisele da Silva, 30. Both had been seen in the vicinity. The house of the three suspects was set on fire on Thursday by neighbours. One of the suspects confessed she knew the name of a woman the group killed in 2008, Jessica Pereira, in the nearby city of Olinda.

Man makes meat of teens



A 56-YEAR-OLD man from Yunnan, China, has admitted to killing, skinning and making preserved meat out of over 20 teenagers, reported Kwong Wah Yit Poh.

The daily said the man even soaked the victims' eyeballs with rice wine and fed his three dogs with human flesh before selling the leftover as ostrich meat.

A special investigation task force set up by the Jinning county police discovered the gruesome case last month following a series of missing persons' reports.

The suspect Zhang Yung Ming had been sentenced to life imprisonment for murder in 1978.

However, he was released after 18 years and went back to his hometown in Nanmen Village, where he was said to have kidnapped the youths before killing them.

An experienced newsmen in Yunnan also revealed that the actual number of victims could be more because over 50 pairs of shoes were found in Zhang's home.

UPDATE: 26 MAY 2012
Japanese man cooks, serves own genitals

A Japanese artist cooked his own genitals and served them to five paying diners in Tokyo to cover the medical costs, in a bizarre act to raise awareness about sexual minorities.




Mao Sugiyama had his penis and testicles surgically removed in March and kept them frozen for two months before dishing them out -- seasoned and braised -- to customers at an event hall on May 13, according to postings on his Twitter account and local police.

Diners paid 20,000 yen ($250) for the plate with a portion of genitals. Pictures published on a website appeared to show the meal came complete with mushrooms and a parsley garnish.

The painter, who is reportedly 22, said on Twitter the organ had been removed by a physician and certified to be free of infections.

The meal was prepared under the supervision of a certified cook and diners were required to sign a waiver indemnifying Sugiyama and event organisers.

In May 18 tweets, the artist said steps were taken so the act met all relevant laws, including a ban on organ sales, processing of medical waste and even food sanitation requirements.

"I receive questions from some women and men... asking 'Will there be a next time? Please host it again.' But there is only one set of male organ," he tweeted on May 16.

"Unfortunately, I have no plan for the next time."

Sugiyama, who considers himself "asexual", that is without gender, initially thought about eating the genitals himself, but decided to solicit paying customers to help pay his hospital bills for the surgery.

In an email to AFP, he confirmed the event had taken place and said it was organised to raise awareness about "sexual minorities, x-gender, asexual people". He said he was readying to publish an official account of the day.

Police in Tokyo said they knew of the episode, but added that it had not broken the law as cannibalism was not illegal in Japan.

"We are aware of the case. There was nothing (criminal) to it. It does not violate any detailed rules. There is nothing to take action about," an officer at Suginami police station told AFP.

Miami Police Shoot, Kill Man Eating Another Man’s Face



A Miami police officer shot a naked man to death after he wouldn’t stop eating another naked man’s face on the MacArthur Causeway, authorities say.

This combo made with undated photos made available by the Miami-Dade Police Dept. shows Rudy Eugene, 31, left, who police shot and killed as he ate the face of Ronald Poppo, 65, right, during a horrific attack in the shadow of the Miami Herald's headquarters, May 26, 2012.



The survivor, who police think may have been homeless and was lying down when attacked, was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, according to the Miami Herald — whose building was next door to the scene of the crime and whose surveillance cameras showed the officer shooting the suspect on Saturday.

Police sources told CBS Miami that the victim had virtually no face and was unrecognizable.

The Miami Herald’s police sources recounted that a road ranger saw the man chewing on the other man’s face and ordered him to back off over a loudspeaker, and that another police officer soon approached the unidentified attacker.

“The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away,” the Herald reported. “When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.”

Sgt. Altarr Williams, supervisor of the Miami police homicide unit, also told the Herald that a man doesn’t have to be armed to be dangerous. “There are other ways to injure people,’’ Williams said. “Some people know martial arts, others are very strong and can kill you with their hands.’’

A 21-year-old Kenyan college student accused of killing a housemate told police he ate the victim’s heart and part of his brain after he died.


Alexander Kinyua Left Kills Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie Right


Alexander Kinyua hid the head and hands of the dead man in his family’s basement laundry room in a suburb of Baltimore, according to the sheriff’s office. Kinyua, a student at Morgan State University, was charged earlier in May in another attack in which the victim was brutally beaten but survived.

Kinyua, born in Kenya, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie. He was ordered held on no bail.

His public defender did not return a call seeking comment, and a voicemail left at Kinyua’s home was not returned.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Monica Worrell said the chief medical examiner had not yet officially identified the body parts, but that authorities believe they are those of Kodie, who was reported missing May 25.

On Tuesday, Kinyua’s father, Antony Kinyua, called detectives and reported that another son, Jarrod, found what he thought were human remains in the house where they all lived.

Jarrod found two metal tins, which held a human head and two human hands. Police say Jarrod confronted his brother, who said the remains were animals.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and found the head and hands in the house. Police say Alexander Kinyua admitted to killing Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and eating his heart and part of his brain.

Authorities say Kinyua told detectives the rest of the body could be found in a trash container at the Town Baptist Church in Harford County, where they discovered remains.

On May 19, Kinyua beat a man with a baseball bat on Morgan’s campus, fracturing his skull and making him lose sight in one eye, according to Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

Kinyua was arrested May 20 and released on $220,000 bail.

Morgan officials say Kinyua studied electrical engineering and was also in the ROTC.

According to court records, the victim, Kodie, who was from Ghana, was convicted in November 2008 in Baltimore County of sex offence and assault in September 2007 and harassment, stalking and telephone misuse for making repeated calls in 2007 and 2008 to a woman. He was sentenced to at least a year and a half in jail.

Your Health

Useful Information on one of the deadliest diseases of our time:
CANCER
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not
show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few
billion.When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer
cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable
to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable
size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's
lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be
destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
environmental,food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and
including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and
also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,
kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages
healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce
tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation
the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can
succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become
resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to
spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not
feedingit with the foods it needs to multiply.


Ads by AdGenta.com
CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off on important
food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,
Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural
substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small
amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour.
Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic
and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork.
Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites,
which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,seeds, nuts
and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About
20% can be from cooked food including beans.Fresh vegetable juices provide
live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels
within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To
obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh
vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw
vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of
104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.Green tea is
a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.Water- best to
drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals
in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive
enzymes.Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and
leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or
eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of
cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy thecancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,Essiac,
anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own
killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are
known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal
method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and
positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger,unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and
acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to
relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising
daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular
level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Belly dancing and Tai Chi for health

Belly dancing and Tai-chi for health and fitness
Belly dancing and Tai-chi, the two routine exercises I enjoy doing the most. Some people frown upon Belly Dancing for some very misinformed reasons and that Tai-Chi are for older people just because they’re often seen as a group performance out in a park somewhere. However, their growing popularity and health benefit is sure changing the way people think. Tai-chi for me is disciplining the mind and the body. It’s a slow impact martial art movement that I find very helpful in maintaining my chi, in traditional Chinese medicine; it’s the balance of negative and positive forms in the body which I also find essential for maintaining good health. My husband who is a Sifu (Master) teaches Tai-Chi and both of us enjoy the work out whether in groups or just by myself. There are different styles of Tai-chi and variation of movements. We use the Yang Style – long and short forms. What other benefits do you get from Tai-chi? The very same movement in tai-chi when performed at a strong impact level becomes your self-defense tool against some jerks with something not so nice cooking in their mind.Selected videos:

The benefits of belly dance are both mental and physical for me. It’s fun and it makes me sweat out all the unwanted toxic off my body but most of all, it’s the kind of dance that is entertaining. Ever tried watching yourself dance in front of a long tall mirror? Dressing up for the exercise is even better. It gives you that feeling of being up on a stage, no audience please. [chuckles] Besides being an art form, belly dancing provides a complete cardiovascular workout, strengthen muscles, increase strength and flexibility, better body, and build self-esteem and a fun way to loose some of that weight. Do you know that a good 30 minutes of intense belly dancing can burn up to 300 plus calories?

Beware of Date Rape Drugs

DATE RAPE DRUGS
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

D ate R ape..

When people think of rape, they might think of a stranger jumping out of a shadowy place and sexually attacking someone. But it's not only strangers who rape. In fact, about half of all people who are raped know the person who attacked them.

Most friendships, acquaintances, and dates never lead to violence, of course. But, sadly, sometimes it happens. When forced sex occurs between two people who already know each other, it is known as date rape or acquaintance rape.

Even if the two people know each other well, and even if they were intimate or had sex before, no one has the right to force a sexual act on another person against his or her will.

Girls and women are most often raped - one in three women will be sexually assaulted in her life. Guys can also be raped, though: 7% to 10% of rape victims are male.

Even though rape involves forced sex, rape is not about sex or passion. Rape has nothing to do with love. Rape is an act of aggression and violence.

You may hear some people say that those who have been raped were somehow "asking for it" because of the clothes they wore or the way they acted. That's wrong: The person who is raped is not to blame. Rape is always the fault of the rapist. And that's also the case when two people are dating - or even in an intimate relationship. One person never owes the other person sex. If sex is forced against someone's will, that's rape.

Healthy relationships involve respect - including respect for the feelings of others. Someone who really cares about you will respect your wishes and not force or pressure you to have sex.

What are date rape drugs?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us



These are drugs that are sometimes used to assist a sexual assault. Sexual assault is any type of sexual activity that a person does not agree to. It can include inappropriate touching, vaginal penetration, sexual intercourse, rape, and attempted rape. Because of the effects of these drugs, victims may be physically helpless, unable to refuse sex, and can't remember what happened. The drugs often have no color, smell, or taste and are easily added to flavored drinks without the victim's knowledge. There are at least three date rape drugs:

GHB (gamma hydroxybutyric acid)
Rohypnol (flunitrazepam)
Ketamine (ketamine hydrochloride)

Although we use the term "date rape," most experts prefer the term "drug-facilitated sexual assault." These drugs have been used to help people commit other crimes, like robbery and physical assault, and have been used on both men and women.

What do the drugs look like?

Rohypnol is a pill and dissolves in liquids. New pills turn blue when added to liquids. However, the old pills, with no color, are still available.
Ketamine is a white powder.

Are these drugs legal ?

Some of these drugs are legal, but that doesn't mean they're not going to hurt you. Even if they're legal, you should not use them unless your health care provider prescribes them.

Rohypnol is NOT legal It is legal in Europe and Mexico and prescribed for sleep problems and as an anesthetic (medicine given during surgery so you don't feel pain).
Ketamine is legal in the U.S. for use as an anesthetic for humans and animals. It is mostly used on animals. Veterinary clinics are robbed for their Ketamine supply.
GHB was recently made legal in the U.S to treat problems from narcolepsy (a sleep problem).

Is alcohol a date rape drug?


While GHB, rohypnol, and ketamine are considered "date rape drugs," there are other drugs that affect judgment and behavior, and can put a person at risk for unwanted or risky sexual activity. Alcohol is one of those drugs. When a person is drinking alcohol:

It's harder to think clearly and evaluate a potentially dangerous situation.
It's harder to resist sexual or physical assault.
Drinking too much alcohol can also cause black-outs and memory loss.
But remember: even if a victim of sexual assault drank alcohol, she is NOT at fault for being assaulted.

Don't accept drinks from other people.

Open containers yourself.

Keep your drink with you at all times, even when you go to the bathroom.

Don't share drinks.

Don't drink from punch bowls or other large, common, open containers. They may already have drugs in them.

Don't drink anything that tastes or smells strange. Sometimes, GHB tastes salty.

Have a non-drinking friend with you to make sure nothing happens.

If you think that you have been drugged and raped:
Go to the police station or hospital right away.
Get a urine (pee) test as soon as possible. The drugs leave your system quickly. Rohypnol stays in the body for several hours, and can be detected in the urine up to 72 hours after taking it. GHB leaves the body in 12 hours.
Don't urinate before getting help.
Don't douche, bathe, or change clothes before getting help. These things may give evidence of the rape.

You also can call a crisis center or a hotline to talk with a counselor. . Feelings of shame, guilt, fear and shock are normal. It is important to get counseling from a trusted professional.

Plan your journey or night out, arranging your journey to-and-from home.

Make sure someone knows where you are going and what time you will be home.

When going to a pub, club or party avoid going alone. Friends can watch-out for each other.

Appoint a nominated drink watcher (your non-drinking driver?). Alcohol does affect your actions and reactions, as well as your ability to be alert. Take care.

Stay aware of what is going on around you & away from situations you do not feel comfortable with.

Never accept a drink from anyone you do not completely trust.

Do not share or exchange drinks. Don't leave your drink unattended, even when going to the toilet.

Drugs can be put in soft drinks, tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc., as well as alcohol. There are a number of drugs that could be used to incapacitate you; the majority will not be easily detectable in a drink.

Drinking from a bottle and keeping your thumb over the top is a good idea. Just remember that if you leave it unattended you may not be able to see if anything has been put in it.

If you return to your drink and it has been moved, looks different, appears to have been topped-up, or tastes strange; don't take a chance.

Consider very carefully whether you should leave the pub, club or party with someone you have just met.

If you begin to feel really drunk after only a drink or two, seek help from a trusted friend, or a member of the club or pub management. It is important to get to a place of safety as soon as possible.

Consider very carefully whether you should leave the pub, club or party with someone you have just met. You must be sure you have absolute trust in the person you are asking for help, no matter how long you have known them.
This can happen to men as well as women.

T here are a number of practical steps you can take to reduce the risk of drug assisted sexual assault: You cannot expect to remember a long list of prevention advice, every time you go out. Just be aware. If something does not seem quite right, guard against the possibility of it happening to you or one of your friends.

Getting Help


Unfortunately, even if someone takes every precaution, date rape can still happen. If you're raped, here are some things that you can do:

If you're injured, go straight to the emergency room - most medical centers and hospital emergency departments have doctors and counselors who have been trained to take care of someone who has been raped.

Call or find a friend, family member, or someone you feel safe with and tell them what happened.

If you want to report the rape, call the police right away. Preserve all the physical evidence. Don't change clothes or wash.

Write down as much as you can remember about the event.

If you aren't sure what to do, call a rape crisis center. If you don't know the number, your local phone book will have hotline numbers.
Don't be afraid to ask questions and get information. You'll have lots of questions as you go through the process - such as whether to report the rape, who to tell, and the kinds of reactions you may get from others.

Rape isn't just physically damaging - it can be emotionally traumatic as well. It may be hard to think or talk about something as personal as being raped by someone you know. But talking with a trained rape crisis counselor or other mental health professional can give you the right emotional attention, care, and support to begin the healing process. Working things through can help prevent lingering problems later on.
