More people than ever are now ‘members’ of a gym. Are more people than ever healthier because of this?Continue reading
Finding a way to regain health is a journey that starts with ill-health and disillusionment. Most people don’t start out their lives by first seeking the optimum solution to health. You, like nearly 100% of readers, will be reading this because you now need a solution to a problem that isn’t getting solved by mainstream methods.Continue reading
Are you looking after your health and eating a “balanced diet”? How can you be sure that your diet is balanced?
The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend the number of ‘standard serves’ we should consume from the five core food groups each day, for a nutritious and balanced dietNutrition Australia
Personally, I think that “balanced diet” is an absurd term used to manipulate you towards certain desired behaviours.Continue reading
Like many of you, I frequently get this sort of article in my news feeds. Hopefully by now, many of you can recognise it for what it is – the same old dogma that keeps people in line.
Is this a good thing?
Firstly, don’t get me wrong, I think that people suffering with eating disorders are really suffering and should be helped. That said …
There is a lot to be said in support of building your brain out of good materials and then maintaining and fuelling it correctly. This is by far the most effective means of preventing and correcting the underlying brain function that causes these disorders. Treat the cause – not the symptoms.Continue reading
I was thinking about the argument that lean muscle mass in older age determines life-expectancy. This is a widely embraced view and is driving behaviour. It has almost achieved the status of dogma.
The belief comes from studies that show that the more lean muscle mass that an older person has, the longer they are expected to live. So, lean muscle mass is associated with a longer life. Is this all there is to the story? Well, not in my opinion, otherwise I would not be writing this ….Continue reading
There is a lot of concern about glyphosate recently with some landmark court cases in the USA where some people have been award hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for cancer that supposedly resulted from exposure.
What is glyphosate?
Glyphosate is a chemical weed killer that is used in huge quantities by agriculture. It is generally applied by spraying – either by tractor or aeroplane. It is a systemic chemical that is absorbed by the plant and then interferes with the plants’ ability to use energy.Continue reading
What is common to every organ of the body? They all depend on a complex network of blood vessels and tiny capillaries to perform their function. If those blood vessels get damaged or clogged up then the organ stops doing what it is meant to.Continue reading
What is wrong with your brain if you suffer from chronic depression or anxiety? Do you think it is something ephemeral like your “id” is broken? Do you think it is just a part of being you? What if your symptoms result from inflammation of your brain?
Today I received a response on behalf of the Queensland Health Minister to my letter regarding the health of Queenslanders. While the response was tepid and not supportive of the objective, at least they did read the information and look and the work in WA. I will reach out to the Federal Health Minister once the election dust settles.Continue reading
Incretins are a group of hormones that are released by your GI tract that have a major influence on the digestion of a meal.
Why should you care? Well, just by changing how you eat, you can significantly influence your Insulin response.
Watch and listen to this great talk by Dr Michael Eades to better understand how Incretins affect your life and what you can do about it.
Dr Michael Eades is always worth listening to – seek out his other presentations.
I have been reading some of Tucker Goodrich’s analysis of the role of seed oils in modern diseases and I believe that he presents a compelling case. I provide a link to his title article on this subject below.
My simple takeaway from reading many of the papers is that (a) excess carbs is bad, (b) excess Linoleic Acid (from seed oils) is bad, but (c) together they are much worse and probably toxic, particularly when a person loses blood glucose regulation.
Tucker has also written an older article “Omega-6 fatty acids: the alternative hypothesis for diseases of civilization” that ties a lot of evidence together in an easier to consume format and with less jargon. It is well worth reading.
We have good evidence that consumption of excessive carbohydrates leads to insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, T2D and related diseases.
We have Tucker and others showing how seed oils are particularly bad for our health.
If you add those two/three ingredients together, you get modern processed food.
While neither a high carb diet nor seed oil consumption is good, they seem to work particularly well together to accelerate your decline into early death.
You don’t need me to tell you what to do.
