REPAIR the Damage From KETO-DIETS?

Some of my friends on the Keto-Diet claim that, if many of their bio-markers appear to improve, then how can it be unhealthy? Dr. McDougall mentioned that the same positive bio-marker effects are also achieved when doctors place their patients on CHEMOTHERAPY. Does that suggest that obese people ought to jump into CHEMOTHERAPY to loose weight?  Of course not. Remember, anyone and anything can be or look great for a few minutes. But what of the longer-term? Doctors would agree that if you put less food into your body, your body organs have less to work with and respond...

Fasting…the DARK SIDE?!

I am ashamed to admit that I got suckered into the excitement of experimenting with an extended, water-only fast. But before I go deeper into my shameful lack of awareness prior to my water-fast, I must differentiate between what I did, (a water-only, longer term, eg., 5-day, fast) and very short-term fasts such as is practised by some religions or ideologies. The notion of blasting off body weight by eating nothing and drinking only water was a big change from the everyday vegan, no oils, lifestyle I’ve adopted over the past few years. On that lifestyle I dropped over...

Fasting?! …Heck, No! …. I’m BIOHACKING.

NO FOOD touches the lips of some CEOs in Silicon Valley for up to 9 days! Yes. That’s right. No food for 9 days. They do it voluntarily. All the while, their faces are beaming with smiles! They love doing it!  Are these people nutty or what? [WARNING: IF YOU DO THIS, ONLY DO IT UNDER PROPER MEDICAL SUPERVISION AND WITH PROPER MEDICAL CONSULTATION!!] Whether short-term, or interval, or longer time, (like 9 days), these people willingly, and encouragingly, practise a major part of what these bad boys and bad gals call, “BIO-HACKING”. The fasting component of bio-hacking. Because...

PROOF KETO Diets May Be Dangerous?!

What’s a KETO DIET? This is the new rage among millenials. It is a diet during which people consume very few, or ideally, no carbohydrates, (aka., “carbs”), lots of fat, and some protein. The theory is to achieve a “state of ketosis” one must avoid all carbs. A keto diet, being low on carbs attempts to put people into a state of ketosis. A State of Ketosis: In the absence of consuming carbs, the body will deplete its energy which is stored in the liver in the form of glucose. Once the body runs out of glucose, the brain commands...

Suddenly 30 Million MORE Have High Blood Pressure.

Medical research now concludes that too many Americans have constricted arteries. To be true to the announcement, it wasn’t announced that way. The announcements said, “high blood pressure guidelines were lowered to 130/80.” The medical profession did this because this most recent study PROVES that risk of strokes and heart attacks RISE dramatically as blood pressure readings rise above 130/80. This study,  with over 30,000 participants, is a statistically significant study size. When a study of this size CONFIRMS a potential health problem exists, you can bet that it does and that it likely is important information to you. But...

YOU Have a Lot of POTENTIAL!

If someone knowledgeable in nutrition says to you, “You have a lot of potential”, be sure to ask that person exactly what is meant.  That statement may not be a compliment! If you studied physics, you are familiar with the terms Potential Energy. Potential energy is STORED energy. When we eat food or drink beverages containing calories, the body jacks up insulin to convert those calories into glucose to replace the glucose in the liver that the body needs and consumes each day.  If you eat or drink too much, that extra energy is stored in the rest of...

MEN: SIZE MATTERS!!

Men: you CAN make one very important ORGAN on your body GROW MUCH LARGER by eating plenty of protein, drinking alcohol, enjoying sweetened products, relaxing a lot,  and indulging in dairy products. O-o-o-ops!  Sorry.  It’s not the organ you are likely thinking about. This organ won’t please your sex partner and it won’t please you. In fact, for both of you, it is likely to become a big pain in the ass, (pardon the pun). It’s the PROSTATE. By indulging in the typical American diet and lifestyle you are almost certain to earn yourself either an ENLARGED PROSTATE or...

Do You Know How to Manage Worry?

There are so many fears out there that we may spend an inordinate amount of time just worrying. Some people even worry about worrying. If that’s you, this Nugget may be timely. A cursory glance of alternative and mainstream media enabled me to create a basic list of over 65 fears. And that list is not complete. I got tired of reading about fears in the press so switched off my computer. Life has plenty of things we must worry about. Not a day will go by without us fearing something and often some new thing. Plenty of people...

SUPERVOLCANOES going Mad.

Yikes. Reports are emerging that SUPERVOLCANOES are heating up and starting to become active. The most recent was a Zerohedge article announcing Antarctic is melting due to a Supervolcano under the ice shield. An active volcano below the Antarctic ice shield is nothing new, but the notion that it is becoming more active is worthy of note. It was Ker Than, back in November of 2013 who reported in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC that a new volcano was discovered years earlier, back in 2010, by a team of scientists. That new volcano was under the Antarctic ice shield. Than’s article was...

GriD and Bear It.

Are electric vehicles REALLY environmentally friendly? Some scientists argue, “No!!!!”; others, “Yes!!!” This discourse is causing a clash of titans. This question has some of the world’s top scientists plugged into a debate which is consuming a lot of energy. [Sorry, I’m uncontrollable when it comes to making a pun.] The debate is as far ranging as CLIMATE CHANGE. If the government can’t prove that electric vehicles will save Earth from warming, or cooling, whatever piece of propaganda is most useful, then the government believes it will fail to convince you to pay much more in tax dollars to...

The Great UNWIND! Watching an EPIC FAIL.

Propaganda is a useful tool of governments. Every government uses it. Of late, though, one tool of propagandists is proving to be an epic failure: “Accuse your opponents of what you yourself are doing.” This past year we have been inundated with false accusations against President Trump from the Democrats, the FBI, the Russian Investigation, HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES and especially the MEDIA. It’s been a saturation campaign of propaganda to make you think there is something wrong with having Donald Trump as President. Accuse your opponents of what you yourself are doing. The lies, and liars, are being exposed. Almost everything...

CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE PRESS…AGAIN.

Another media blitz is happening, these days, trying to convince the nation that you are bad people screwing up the climate because of plant and vehicle emissions. The media is gleefully announcing the results of the Obama-financed, 4-year study of climate change. But, typical of the media, it fails you once again. In short, yes climate change is real, is happening, because it always has and always will. But don’t believe that you are accelerating it. YOU are NOT AT FAULT. It’s been going on for over 4.5 BILLION years, with and without humans, with and without dinosaurs, and...

GLUCOSAMINE for Your Joints or is it All In Your Head?

[WARNING: Before making any changes to your diet or therapy programs, check with your doctor who is authorized to diagnose and treat symptoms and disease. The following is for discussion purposes only and is not a recommendation.] Another round of studies proves aspirin, or equivalent pain medication, may be cheaper than burning through cash if you are currently swallowing expensive Glucosamine supplements for control of your joint pain. As all doctors know all too well, it is difficult to get around the PLACEBO effect See End Note 1 when discussing and trying to measure such things as pain levels....

Women: “Wait…The Draft?!”

Women have demanded equality to men in all things. So, this only makes sense… Until recently, only men were conscripted to war when a draft was in play. That may be about to change if the Pentagon and the Democrats have their way. If this legislation goes through, and there are indications it  will  go through, the legislation will MANDATE that if America implements a draft for war, women will be called up just as men are. For more than TWO YEARS–[so, you can’t blame President Trump for this one!]–the fat-cats, even the female fat-cats, in politics, have been...
