Well, if you've been with me this far Dear Reader, what do you think? Propaganda coming out of the People's Socialist Republic of New York tells school children that "it takes ten full bathtubs of water to produce a quarter-pound burger." Lies, lies and more lies. Where does this water come from? Water treatment plants? … Continue reading Don’t Cattle Drink Too Much Water?
So I had my phone consult with my diabetes nurse last week. These were the numbers: HBa1C - 7.4%Total cholesterol - 7Kidney Function - normalBlood pressure - 110/70 Pretty mediocre. I've worked hard trying to get my HBa1C down to a sub 5.8% but haven't been able to crack it. I'm not worried about my … Continue reading Jason Fung – Diabetes Code
I only stumbled across this today when looking for a photo for my post. The site is worth a gander. More importantly, for those who don't fancy reading the 270 page book, or my posts, you can watch the documentary on: ItunesVuduGoogleplayAmazonDirecTVDish NetworkiNDEMAND Sacred Cow
The myth busting has come thick and fast in the last few chapters. Chapter 11 is no different. The truth is no, cattle do not take up too much land. What a surprise. Bring on the Documentary Our authors begin with the Meatless Mondays claim that livestock take up "75% of Earth's Agricultural Land." Given … Continue reading Don’t Cattle Take up Too Much Land?
The answer is yes...if you're a propagandist for vegetables or a shill for big-Agriculture. The answer is no if you have functioning brain cells and live on planet Earth. I know, this is a big ask for "anti-meaters". This is a short, punchy chapter that really debunks the idea that you have to put far … Continue reading Aren’t Cattle Inefficient with Feed?
Vandana Shiva Dr Mercola has an article out that ties in very nicely with the recent chapters of Sacred Cow that I've been reading. Vandana Shiva has been fighting against monocrop, GMO, chemical-laden agriculture for six decades. One of the tactics big-Agro uses is to patent GMO seeds in order to trap farmers into a … Continue reading Fighting the Green Revolution

If you know the history of this movement, and those who push this theory, you see that this is just another effort to destroy capitalism, private property and individual liberty. Do you not remember the East Anglia Climatic Research Unit scandal? If you want to be … Continue reading Are Cattle Contributing to Climate Change?
I ate a delicious Thai chicken curry on Thursday night with broccoli. Too much broccoli it turned out because my blood glucose was a poor when I woke up: 11 mmol/L. My typical response is not to eat anything all day and maybe skip dinner too. This time, however, I decided to hit the gym … Continue reading Early Morning Workouts for Blood Control
No. This is short, but interesting, chapter. I don't know the authors' politics other than they're not radical leftists. They do believe that climate change is a real concern but ruminants are not the problem. This thorny topic will be addressed in later chapters we're assured. One thing Rodgers and Wolf do well here is … Continue reading Can a Sustainable Food System Exist Without Animals?
For some reason, a few weeks ago I got thinking about chilli. I loved it growing up but rarely, if ever, made it once out of the nest. My better half made it from time-to-time, but that was before I took over cooking duties. Anyways, I "swisscowed" keto chilli and tons of recipes came up. … Continue reading Keto Chilli
