I think alot of them fell under the unsure and doubtful category, to be honest. But most of them returned with eyes determined to make a change. When I asked about their experiences, I head some interesting ones, which I would wish to share. My student went to Cambodia for his OCIP, to a village which shall not be named. He was in charge of educating the villagers and also surveying them about their health habits. He interviewed families about their health habits, and was rather shocked by his results. Most families said that they cooked their water, rarely consumed alcohol or smoked, etc,
