Keeping your gut happy
We live in a very high-pressure world and we need to perform at our best in order to succeed. However this pressure means that we often take short-cuts without diet and lifestyle. In a perfect world, we could sit for an hour or more and enjoy a quality meal with friends and even a glass of wine.
However so many people live on fast food and if that’s you, then your digestive tract is under a lot of pressure. Fast food tends to be highly processed, full of unpleasant chemicals and because it is fast, we eat in a hurry and continue our activities before digestion has taken place.
A consequence of this

Along with it’s version of democracy, the USA spreads diabetes, heart disease and more
There’s an old family catchphrase that ‘your mother knows best’ that is often used in conjunction with ‘ask your mother’ or ‘ask your father’. Mother knows best as a phrase used to placate women in the patriarchal society whereas ask your mother or ask your father a fundamental phrases indicating blindness to the truth and an avoidance of responsibility.
The way of live for people of the USA has been to modulus, they stole the land they now occupy, exterminated around 100 million people and began to create an idealistic new existence based on liberty and freedom without any sense of guilt for their crimes

Our ocean guardians
Most whale species have been hunted to the brink of extinction and some hover dangerously close to that brink. The primary products they were killed for was oil, ambergris (used as a fixative for perfumes) food, and some of the bone was also used.
Human beings have this innate or natural inborn ignorance and inflated self-worth that has no basis in reality. We are the perhaps the least significant species living on this planet and we have done the greatest amount of damage and continue to do so.
Most people see wales as big fish that are mostly out of sight and out of mind and when it comes to products, few people care where they come

We are slowly destroying life and ourselves
Plastic pollution poses one of the biggest known threats to the ocean, influencing all ecosystems from beautiful coral reefs to abyssal trenches, eventually accumulating in our own food. It’s time to transition away from single-use plastics and dispose of our waste more sustainably.
There have been many media stories and images of sharks, whales and other species injured and killed by plastic waste, but for a while now, scientists have known that fish are ingesting small pieces of plastic. But it wasn’t clear how much of that was reaching our dinner plate. Ecologist Chelsea Rochman wanted to find out.
Rochman, who spoke at the @montereybayaquarium Sustainable Foods Institute, sampled fish from markets in

Milk Destroys Your Bones From the Inside
Milk and animals as food have been consumed by us for thousands of years. When the livestock are healthy and the people consuming milk and milk products as they have done in India for perhaps tens of thousands of years with the milk is primarily the A2 variety which is further processed before consumption, milk products and the animals that produce them are healthy.
Where we come to the west, the milk is the A1 variety, cows often suffer harsh conditions and a percentage of their diet is made up of agricultural chemicals which is passed on to us through the milk and meat.
In terms of osteoporosis, after

What future do our children have?
The toxic residues produced by industry over the past 2000 years have been conveniently overlooked. The Romans infamously used lead pipes and the lead drove them insane. More recently we switched to copper pipes but then it was discovered that as copper ages, the oxidised copper is harmful to our health and these were replaced with galvanised steel which were too expensive and today most people use plastic which presents another set of problems.
Modern society is driven by desires and some of them like access to clean water are vitally important whereas the desire for profits or to have the same stuff as one’s neighbours is totally

The rotten heart of a superpower

Many of the values of western civilisation come about through competition and perceived basic needs for survival which stand in the way of higher thinking and natural evolution. If we look back over history we can see how greed and desire have shaped the world.
As several hunter gatherers people had to stick to the facts because life depended on those facts, but today the world is awash in ideas and attractive physical stuff or glamour. People are competing to have others buy into their ideas and have people buy their stuff so much so that institutions have been established to buy and sell

A battle to conform or find health?
I’ve discussed a little about our bodies and ourselves, and our need to get over our hangups or learned value judgements primarily because such ideology is limiting and holds us back from success in all avenues of life.
Being too fat or obese is different from being nicely rounded or carrying a few extra pounds. In contrast with anorexia which deprives the body of functional energy, a few extra pounds as a sign of good health and even food security.
Carrying a few extra pounds is not going to stop anyone from doing all the things in life they enjoy, it’s only a few of these people who suffer a

An age old problem facing humanity
While there are some women who are kept chained, such scenes as this are fetish practices after which all participants returned to their daily life
It seems probable that slavery extends back to the very first humans with those who were not perhaps so bright were told by others what to do. In other words or another way of expressing this is: submitting to someone else’s will is an optional survival strategy.
With the increase in the human population, at different periods of time and history which we know from old accounts that slaves in essence became the workers and the architects became the middle-class. In Roman society almost everyone had slaves including

Persistent genital arousal disorder
Women who have regular spontaneous orgasms, also called Restless Genital Syndrome (RGS).
PGAD is a very rare condition thought to affect about 1 in 1,000,000 women. This condition can begin before puberty and continue throughout life. Or it can start any time, like sometimes just before menopause. The medical establishment can find no cause or treatment, and any woman suffering from this condition may be subject to some experimentation at the hands of the medical establishment.
This condition makes many woman’s lives a misery and the fact that they are having a multiple of orgasms every day precludes them from enjoying normal sexual activity.
Not only are there no known causes
