Quotable Quote

16 Aug

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” ― Benjamin Rush

Another opinion on what’s making us fat

4 Oct

Like everything our knowledge of health, fitness and diets evolve over time. I find the more information that is provided the more things look like the old ways was the best. Our ancestors ate real food and that did not seem to be a problem. They did not have all the electrical aids to make our work lighter. They used elbow grease and walked a lot. They did not sit on their butts all day and then go to the gym for artificial exercise. They did exercise as part of normal work and that worked. Modern comforts including comfort foods and non-foods we have ingested seem to be the elephant in the room that people are not willing to acknowledge and take a firm stand on. There is no need for artificial food and unfortunately our governments are silent on the issue. I found this article interesting and so I am sharing it with you. Would love to hear your opinion on it.

How to fix our food problems

2 Jan

This is a very interesting opinion by Mark Bittman of NYT about our food and how we should tackle our food problems in the coming year. The writer identified – sugar as a big issue to our growing obesity. He believes that we should tackle sugar as we tackle tobacco; we should be vigilant about how our food is produced and should reject pork produced in crate – we should care better for the animals destined for our dinner tables. And good food should be available to the poorest in our midst.
When people are poor they reach for the cheapest foods that are often the most unhealthy. If more unhealthy foods are eliminated then everyone would stand a better chance at health and healthy foods. Some of the stuff that we spend good money on are anything but food. Read the article for yourself here:

Nothing affects public health in the United States more than food. Gun violence kills tens of thousands of Americans a year. Heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes kill more than a million people a year — nearly half of all deaths — and diet is a root cause of many of those diseases.

And the root of that dangerous diet is our system of hyper-industrial agriculture, the kind that uses 10 times as much energy as it produces.

Have Belly Fat – blast it away with these foods

17 Apr

If you are like me you have tried many things but there are still more to try.  I believe that insulin is a big factor in weight gain and if we can control that it might be worth the while. The article is very informative – it provides several options to reduce belly fat from 8 to 90 days. I would not take these projections as gospel truth. Have a look.
