Only THREE days and I’ll be hopping a plane to Philadelphia for the Wise Traditions Conference! While I’m gone I’ll try to keep the Tweets and Facebook updates coming so you can be there, virtually anyway, so if you want to come along, be sure to ‘follow’ and ‘like’ me!
- Maybe you’ve already read my rants about breast cancer fundraising: Politically incorrect thoughts on breast cancer, the KFC fiasco, and Hormone replacement and breast cancer risks. Well now a big thank you to Soli for sending me this latest article that says it well: Why the little pink ribbon has me seeing red. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which quotes Mike Adams:
“For most diseases, the race for the cure is really just a way for drug companies to shift Research & Development costs to suckers. You fund the R&D, and then you get to pay full price for the drug they drummed up thanks to your generous donation.”
- From the archives: Are Meat Eaters Ruining the Earth? (Vegans & vegetarians, I hope you’ll take a peek at the related links there.)
- Have you guys heard of this book, “Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-to-Z Reference to Drug-Free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs & Food Supplements”? They sent me one a few weeks ago, and as usual these days, I barely had time to pop it open, but when I turned to the fats section (always a good way to see if I’m going to agree with them on other things), I was bummed to see the same old stuff there:
“Many people use margarine or vegetable shortening as substitutes for butter because they contain no cholesterol. Now most products are free of harmful trans fatty acids. These are good alternatives to butter.”
Now having said that, I will tell you that what I did like about my older edition of this book (which someone gave me), is that it’s a handy reference just to get new ideas on what to try for this or that. It’s a big book and jam-packed with information.
Just don’t pay attention to the section on fats, and don’t let it be your only reference on other issues. It’s always good to check a few different sources. The Weston Price Foundation is always my first stop.
- I liked this interesting post on Sarah’s blog the other day, “Cardio will not get you fit.” Now I know what I’ll be doing when I finally get my butt in gear again come December… OK, maybe January with the rest of the country. SOON for sure, because it’s been too many long days on my butt getting the content done for my Real Food for Rookies class!
Have a great week!
