Lies and Truth in the Era of Qat, the Green leaf resources round up

The Somali Media for Environment Science Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) convened to start this month of July, 2018 by her second face research for Qat whereas the research was started by her leader and founder H. E. Rev. Sayed Daud Abdi Daud from August 12 2007 to July 12, 2018 both in Nairobi, Kenya and Mogadishu, Somalia through perpetual chewing of Qat by obtaining for Qat knowledge in a practical manner because it was so popular in Somalia but it’s not one of her cultivation consumes much of the country’s agricultural resources.

Qat is a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Qat contains the alkaloid cathinone, a stimulant, which is said to cause excitement, loss of appetite, euphoria and some acids similar with the camel milk acids. Among communities from the areas where the plant is native, Qat chewing has a history as social custom dating back thousands of years analogous to the use of coca leaves in South America and betel nut in Asia according to view research findings.

Qat is a slow-growing shrub or tree that typically attains a height of 1–5 m (3 ft 3 in–16 ft 5 in). However, it can reach heights of up to 10 m (33 ft) in equatorial areas. The plant usually grows in arid environments, at a temperature range of 5–35 °C (41–95 °F).[12] It has evergreen leaves, which are 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long and 1–4 cm (0.39–1.6 in) broad. The shrub’s flowers are produced on short axillary cymes that are 4–8 cm (1.6–3.1 in) in length. Each flower is small, with five white petals. The samara fruit is an oblong, three-valved capsule, which contains one to three seeds.

The World Health Organization (WHO) classified it in 1980 as a drug of abuse that can produce psychological dependence although the WHO does not consider Qat addiction to be seriously problematic. It is a controlled substance in some countries, such as Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States, while its production, sale, and consumption are legal in other nations, including Djibouti, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia and Yemen. Consumption of the plant’s leaves in its natural state is also permitted in Israel. The plant has been targeted by anti-drug organizations such as the DEA.

“I have been chewing Qat since from 1992 to 2006 occasionally but for almost since from 2007 when I was fled my nation to Kenya as exile journalist and see how my people are using Qat as energizing resilience for the waiting the refugee recruitment times from the Horn of Africa nations without knowledge in which reminded me to renew my part including the Arabian Peninsula as well “said SOMESHA Secretary General Mr. Daud Abdi Daud

“Though the plant is an illegal substance in many countries, but is not controlled in Yemen and Horn of Africa nations, I realized that the Qat is one of the dangerous green leaves in the world by using without boiling it just like the tea leaf that many people can be died with famine due to the lack of quality control for its waste as it is part the drugs puts users at risk” Preacher Daud added

SOMESHA also confirmed that Qat is mentioned the holy Koran though it was better named within the Koran “Sir-Qoom tree” because of its imperative and useful regulative symbolic way of life for such think-tankers of H. E Master Daud Abdi Daud due to its herbal stimulant though already banned in US and most European countries and become a Class C drug – what will the impact be?

On May 2014, a lady called Waris and from the Mars star in which is the brighter and normally, the second-brightest life mentoring circle space and the fourth-brightest object in the sky after the sun, moon and downside planet contacted SOMESHA founder Mr. Daud Abdi Daud via human like voice wave and told that he is a good scientist writer in across the world as she order him to record and keep up all things related to the Qat which will make SOMESHA data more reliable.

As Mr. Daud told SOMESHA research department section, the problem could lie in the Qat leaves themselves, not the pesticides used. “After a few days, pesticides are not active anymore and easily washed away. However, chewing Qat with fresh pesticides on them is hazardous and might be associated with cancer. He further stated that is a problem against Islam prayer times and might not be allowed a Muslim person to go to the Mosque without washroom by cleaning his body before the prayer.

Apart from Horn of Africa region, the practice of Qat chewing is still primarily restricted to its original area of cultivation in the Red Sea area, the Qat plant has over the years found its way to Southern Africa as well as tropical areas, where it grows on rocky outcrops and in woodlands. The shrub is today scattered in the KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa, in addition to Swaziland and Mozambique. It is clear that the consumption of Qat without boiling is directly affects the mental health of the user because there is a living human like society but bodily in wave system that are in presentation banners against Qat users.
