This is an opinion piece – your opinion might be different and that’s ok too.
I recently posted a lecture by Dr Paul Mason, who is probably one of the most sensible diet-health physicians that I have come across. His lecture already gives you all the facts so you may as well skip this post and watch his lecture.
It is debatable whether the health care system will survive the next five years, or the next ten years. It is clearly heading for disaster as we have a chronically sick, aging population that demand high-cost medical intervention for lifestyle induced conditions. The time will come shortly when the government and insurers say “no more”.
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.
Firstly, don’t get me wrong, I think that people suffering with eating disorders are really suffering and should be helped. That said …

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.
As I have been asked for my view on this, I will share a few thoughts.
If you subscribed to the guidance of these high-profile statements on diet and nutrition, you would turn away from meat and towards a plant based diet. No-one could blame you as these are ‘experts’ and ‘scientists’ telling you the TRUTH.
