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?
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
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?
Not without a host of supplements and probably not even then. Our authors come out of the blocks in this chapter, "we disagree that a totally plant-based is best for all people, and indeed, it may even be unsafe for some." So begins chapter six, which is a polite assault on the plant-only diet. Rodgers … Continue reading Even If Meat Isn’t Bad For Me, Can’t I Get All My Nutrition From Plants?
So says Dr Mercola in his discussion with Dr Judy Mikovits; she's a molecular biologist. These are the key takeaways: By referring to COVID-19 vaccines as “vaccines” rather than gene therapies, the U.S. government is violating its 15 U.S. Code Section 41, which regulates deceptive practices in medical claimsThe mRNA injections are gene therapies that … Continue reading COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines
A very depressing article from Mercola linked here. American readers may not know that their food industry is a corporatist, big business cartel not dissimilar to what Mussolini set up in Fascist Italy. You have the still popular FDR to thank for that one. Anyways, Mercola's article is summed up here: American cattle rancher Shad … Continue reading Cattle Rancher Warns About the Meat You’re Buying – Mercola
Self-inflicted struggles. I wrote in November how my reduction in exercise had resulted in higher blood glucose readings. The last fortnight has led to even higher readings, and I think I have isolated the reason why: Frenemy Yes, my old frenemy red wine paid a visit over the Yuletide (my other old friend, Scotch whisky … Continue reading Blood Glucose Struggles
I was counting back the weeks yesterday. How long had it been since I first sensed a problem in my sciatic nerve? Nine weeks. I suppose only one of those weeks was really, really bad: constant pain, some shooting pain up to 8/10 on my personal threshold, crawling out of bed, not being able to … Continue reading Pseudo Sciatica – Last Post…I Hope
As I wrote last Saturday, I reintroduced a lower body exercise too soon. In this case it was kettlebell squats. The pain came back with a vengeance in my left buttocks, and the sciatic nerve was shooting pain and numbness all the way down to my left heel. Where am I today? I'm writing this … Continue reading Pseudo Sciatica Follow Up – Number Two
My Pain is in the Glue and Thigh I have a major character flaw. I've had it for as long as I can remember. When it comes to injuries, I do one of two things: 1) I push through the pain, which can lead to further injury. 2) I do stop training but do not … Continue reading Cautionary Tale – Pseudo Sciatica
