Don't Worry Coca-Cola will save us...

I just wanted to share this link that my cousin sent me... very interesting!  Not surprising (to me), but interesting none the less. 

It's a good example of how those companies that are a direct 'part of the problem' when it comes to our country's poor state of health, can paint a very different picture.  One putting them at the forefront of "part of the solution", and in such a way that most uninformed consumers wouldn't be the wiser!

So give this YouTube video a watch, get a good laugh, but know that to them this is very serious business.  How serious you ask?  Worth spending millions if not billions a year on marketing and ad campaigns to try and convince the public that their researchers are looking to make their soft drink healthier.  The only truth in this landfill of BS is that they are spending this astronomical amount of money to make their product appear healthier.

Question everything!

The Importance of Sunstainable Farming

I just wanted to share a few facts on the importance of sustainable farming that I find quite interesting and downright scary!

When people talk about topsoil they are referring to the upper layer of soil that is necessary for agriculture; without it plants won't grow.  It is important to understand that topsoil is teaming with life... Trillions of microscopic organisms in one small scoop full!  And unfortunately due to factory farming and the millions of acres of mono crops such as corn, soy, canola, and cotton that blanket our global landscape, we are destroying this essential and very key ingredient to life. 
  1. We are losing crucial topsoil at a rate of up to 40 times that at which it can be replenished.
  2. Nearly 70% of the World's usable nutrient rich topsoil is gone.
  3. We have only about 60 years of topsoil remaining!

So where is the good news in all of this?

Those that practice sustainable farming practices and buck the conventional profit driven system of deplete and destroy will actually build topsoil.  Farmers like Joel Salatin of Polyface farm in Virginia produce more topsoil per year than an untouched forest.  Maybe that's why he calls himself a "grass farmer" above all else...

When thinking of agriculture, we must think small (microscopic) if we are ever going to understand the big picture!

The flu vaccine is profit driven!

I don't see how it can be any more obvious that the flu vaccine, in this country, is for lack of a better word(s) "profit driven propaganda!"  There I said... now what?

Everywhere you turn the flu vaccine campaign is right there smack in your face!  Every grocery store, convenient store, and  drugstore has a table set up.  I've even seen them pushing it at the home improvement stores!

Someone tell me, how the hell does getting the flu shot improve your home?

I've heard of people losing their jobs over it, and kids held out of school because of it.  In fact this morning on the news I saw some kids parents being interviewed for this very reason.  Apparently the vaccine contains egg in some way and this kid is allergic to eggs.  So what do the parents do?  Exactly what you'd think, they refuse to let their child receive the vaccine.

But here is where I see obvious shady business driven by nothing short of $$$$$!

"These days its recommended that if your child does have an egg allergy, they still should get flu shot but in a monitored setting with an allergist who can monitor them in case they do get reaction, must be watched for at least 30 minutes,"

Now that is absurd!  The only way it seems possible that health care professionals (those supposedly looking out for your health and safety) would push this vaccine knowing someone is allergic to one of its ingredients, is because they are getting paid to.  It's business plain and simple!

Whether the "get your flu shot" campaign is coming from the pharmaceutical company who makes billions in profit for making and selling it, or a government who spends billions in taxpayer dollars to fund the pharmaceutical industry in their pursuit of getting the vaccine out to the public asap , or the doctors, pharmacies, and wherever else they're offered profits either directly or indirectly from giving them.  No matter how you slice this onion it stinks!

So as a concerned citizen (yes that means you) it's time to wake up to the cold hard facts.  The facts that clearly show that not only are you subjecting yourself to possible anaphylaxis due to its ingredients, or the VERY REAL risk of mercury toxicity especially if you get yours yearly, but the fact is they don't even work.  Statistics show that the overwhelming majority of those who receive the vaccine (90+ %) will receive no immunity. That means they will get the flu (or not) regardless of receiving the vaccine.  And as an added bonus for all those who line up like drones (yearly), when (not if) they come down with the flu virus it will be worse and you will suffer longer!  That's what a lack of an immune system does...

So what to do you ask?

* Eat a healthy diet low in sugar and grains (glucose to the body).
* Make sure you consuming enough animal based omega-3 fatty acid
* Eat only organic pasture raised meats, eggs, and dairy.  (these are all good sources of protein, saturated fat, fat soluble vitamins, and omega-3)
* Eat only organic vegetables.
* Eat plenty of homemade unpasteurized fermented foods.
* Exercise regularly.
* Get plenty of sun (vitamin D)
* Make sure your consuming enough vitamin C (and your probably not)
* Avoid pharmaceuticals (Rx or over the counter)

You can do it!

Be healthy in 2013

Let me kick off the new year with a shout out to Ethel Hoover, a nurse (former nurse) at an Indiana hospital, who was fired for refusing a flu shot.  I am deeply sorry that she was ultimately let go by her employer but...


...for refusing to let our failing medical industry, government, and employers tell us what we should or should not do when it comes to our bodies and our health.  (see story here)

News flash people, the flu shot does NOT prevent the flu and in fact research shows (of course not the research anyone who profits from selling this profitable propaganda wants you to see) that those who take a flu shot are more likely to be susceptible to other strains of the flu with more severe symptoms.

If you want to prevent getting the flu (or any other illness for that matter) then you have to build and maintain a healthy immune system.  This cannot be done with a pill or shot or Rx of any kind.

Instead can only be obtained through  a healthy diet low in sugar and grains (glucose to the body).  One that promotes normal insulin response, a strong colony of healthy bacteria (healthy gut), and inhibits inflammation. 

Contrary to what the medical community (most doctors) as well as those that profit from our failing food system which is any company profiting from the factory farming industry (this includes drug companies and pharmaceutical companies) would like you to believe, a healthy diet is NOT one consisting of whole grains and low in cholesterol and saturated fat.

Our bodies need 'pastured' animal protein, animal fat (saturated fat) as well as fat soluble vitamins in order to run efficiently. 

  • This means stop with the egg whites and eat the yokes too!  (Organic Pastured Eggs)
  • This means stop eating that widely promoted whole grain breakfast and replace it with pastured eggs and bacon from pastured pork.  (It's actually good for you!)
  • Stop avoiding "red meat" and replacing it with turkey this and tofu that... Put meat (red and white) back into your diet, just make sure it's of the organic pastured variety.
  • Significantly cut down on processed foods, high in sugar and chemicals, and replace it with real homemade meals.
  • Start incorporating fermented foods into your diet so you can build up and maintain a healthy gut (immune system).
  •  Avoid all non-organic GMO products!  And any company that supports them for that matter!
  • Stop listening to your doctor who most likely profits (in one way or another) from the pharmaceutical industry and take your health and that of your family's into your own hands.
  • Look for a more natural and alternative approach to health and wellness. 
  • Question everything considered "mainstream" and "the norm"
Be smart in 2013 and educate yourself on what it really means to be healthy!
