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

Are you into heavy metal? Buy Chinese food.

7 Jul

Heavy metal pollution makes no distinction between how crops are grown. Irrespective of whether farming practices are organic or conventional practices are used, if the likes of cadmium, arsenic, lead, nickel and mercury are in the soil, water or air they can contaminate food and poison the people who consume it. With enough exposure, heavy metals can build up in the body, causing chronic problems in the skin, intestine, nervous system, kidneys, liver, and brain. Some heavy metals occur naturally in soil, but rarely at toxic levels, while human activities like mining, manufacturing and the use of synthetic materials like paint, and even some agricultural chemicals, can release heavy metals into the air and water, and from there they find their way to the soil. And once in the soil, heavy metals are virtually impossible to remove.

Hopeful about the future of food

15 Oct

When it comes to the future of the food system, it’s hard not to be discouraged. Nearly one billion people are hungry, and another 1.5 billion are obese or overweight. All over the world, people waste 1.3 billion tons of food each year. And according to the International Panel on Climate Change, humans are to blame for an increasingly hot, dry and natural disaster-prone planet.

But Food Tank has compiled a list of 14 reasons to be hopeful about the future of the food system. Share these with your networks to spread the message that the food system is changing for the better.

Dr. Oz Puleese

13 Aug

What are you doing to people? I have heard some women say that they have stopped listening to Dr. Oz because everyday he comes out with something new and improved and driving them crazy.  I think Dr. Oz will begin to lose credibility as a doctor if he does not stop endorsing some strange products. He also appears to be focussing on women’s body. 

Women must accept the fact that we are not all alike and that slimness does not equate to good health.  We are all different and we come in different sizes. The more information we received on how we ought to be, how much we ought to eat and how much we ought to this and that the more we will become crazy.

Tune out to diet advice they do not work. The simple thing is eat less and use up more. If we make a decision to stop eating junk food and eat sensible like your grandparents everything would be fine. We are chasing after this elusive dream of a certain size and in the mean time cheat ourselves out of valuable life. Let us be grateful for life and energy. Live your life and get off this judgemental treadmill. Love your body no matter what size it is.  There are too many people many money off of women’s insecurities around their body. Free yourself from this tyranny of body size.  You are who you are.
