'I have to say to the world press, watch, and report what you see. What you see in the world is the whisper of the eternal
song of the administration of the universe. Freedom, peace, prosperity, invincibility—these are the qualities being produced in the units of administration of the universe . . . in every nation. Now the world press has to see, and see, and see. And report what you see.' —Maharishi
Global Good News documents the positive trends of rising world consciousness resulting from the success of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in every area to create coherence and positivity in individual life and for the whole society.
This report features positive trends in health in May 2011, drawn from daily news reports around the world.
More interest in healthy living
More countries are protecting citizens' health by clearing the air of pollutants, especially cigarette smoke. Australia, China, and New York City in the USA are clearing the air—and lungs—with smoking bans and cigarette packaging rules.
Road safety is the focus of the United Nations, while India is examining the hazards of pesticides. Israel is considering a ban on polluting cars and trucks from city centres. The UAE is opting for natural energy drinks.
In an effort to make smoking less attractive to young Australians, the government wants to replace the distinctive colours of various brands with a uniformly drab, olive green packet.
China's new health rules ban smoking in public places, such as restaurants and hotels. The rules are part of the Health Ministry's regulations on health management in public places—a set of rules that also covers areas including ventilation, use of disinfectants, air quality, and pest control.
According to a new law, which went into effect on 23 May in New York City, it is illegal to smoke in many outdoor areas of the city, including parks, beaches, pools, recreation centres, and other spaces such as pedestrian plazas.
The United Arab Emirates—which already has a smoking ban for shopping malls and public places in Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, and Sharjah—is focusing on the hazards of energy drinks and is regulating their sale through health warnings.
India's top court ordered a two-month ban on the production and sale of a pesticide widely used in the country, so that its effects on humans and wildlife can be studied. The country has had a nationwide smoking ban for most public areas since 2008.
In May, the United Nations—smoke-free since 2008—launched the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011 – 2020 in an effort to save five million lives and prevent 50 million road injuries worldwide.
