Valsartan has been recalled in France already last November. But this was imposed by health authorities . But they said the risk his much higher for your health if you stop taking it brutally than actually getting cancer if you continue your treatment waiting for a new prescription from your doctor.

Congratulation !

It was a very logical win. Japan women played the most beautiful game since quarter final. I was sure they would win. I was very impressed by the energy, technics and team spirit of these young ladies.

@JeffLee Just buy an iPhone. That is exactly what I like with Apple, set maker is the same as OS maker. You don't need to rely on the skills or willingness of a different manufactured to properly implement the OS. It not an open world, but it is a world that simply works.

Posted in: U.S. study: All-electric car may not be so green See in context

Again this old debate narrowly focused on CO2 emissions. That is what our French politicians did last 15 years and with strong fiscal measure (high taxes on strong CO2 emissive cars) 80% of sold cars today are diesel. And some big cities like Paris now speak of banning diesel cars from City center because now people have respiratory diseases and die from lung cancer...

Posted in: Sexist views dent Japan push for women's rights See in context

As far as I understand the situation in Japan, pushing women at work without any change in the organization of services for childcare and without any change in the mentality of Japanese men for taking their part in child growing at home, will be a disaster for Japan on medium term as birth rate will be falling sharply.

Just for fun. Should French people get upset each time Frenchman is represented with a "beret" and a "baguette" ? I don't think so. The only problem is that when you actually travel there, you are disappointed when you cannot see these icons.

I wonder whether Toranomon Hills is supposed to be the obelisk or the Arc de Triomphe... I definitely can't see any link with Champs Élysées. But this does not mean that it would not be a nice place for shopping.

When your own house in on fire, why should you intervene in a marital dispute in your neighbour's house ? Especially when one of them could lend you a fire hose... Cynical but realistic.

When all countries are not playing the game with same rules, it is a must for a government to consider any action that can safeguard its industry and jobs. The limits of liberalism is reached when social stability is at risk. I am conscious this thinking might be considered a kind of iconoclast...

Posted in: Rice grown in Miyagi contains more than double legal limit of radioactive cesium See in context

@Basroll : And considering Japan consumes around 60kg of rice per person per year, and the international radiation limits are based on 550kg per person per year, even this "above legal" amount is about 40 times lower than the lowest level of possible concern for infants or adults

.I am not sur this indicator is sufficient to conclude there is no danger for populations. The activity in Bq is one thing, but what is more relevant in the absorbed dose in mSv which take into consideration the actual effect on living tissues. And if the Cs is cumulated in the body which is probable, the absorbed dose in increasing day after day significantly (exponentially ?) when the quantity of Cs in adding up each time you will eat rice. Conclusion : more in depth analysis is necessary before concluding it is safe.

Posted in: S Korea: Japan must educate its people about World War II See in context

All the war crimes of WWII are supposed to have been judged in after war court of justice. I cannot imagine US military forces did that wrongly... Former leaders of imperial Japan have been judged and condemned. Should present Japanese leaders apologize ? Why should they ? The only representative of old time Japan is the Emperor. He only could be asked People of Japan has suffered from war with allied bombings and final A-bombs. I pretty well understand that people do not want to apologize for what Imperial regime did. Finally, I agree that a balanced history teaching has to be made to people allowing them to make their own mind about it and understanding why Chinese and Koreans are complaining. By the way, are they some kind of historians in Japanese Universities ?
