Where is your brain located?
Poster depicting Steve Martin in the legendary comedy the man with two brains.An old classic
Is it true that we have more than one brain? These ideas come from a pioneer in the research field Dr. Gershon. He writes about why we can feel in our stomach feelings as anxiety, fear and anger. The main reason is that serotonin ,that is like a messenger to the brain, is stored in the stomach. When we repress the feelings that our gut is trying to tell us about , we can cause ourselves to be sick. Some believe that all dis-eases come because of poor diet, lack of rest too much stress and repressed anger or repressed feelings. The whole article is linked above and it explains why we can feel in our gut. The gut feeling has logical explanation and there is no wonder why we say ; I can feel it in my gut.
The funny thing is when I was reading about Gershon, I found another doctor a Doctor with a slightly different name Dr. Gerson. And he was remarkable character, I had already seen an interview with his daughter in the film food matters. The Gerson institute offers a alternative cancer treatment without the chemotherapy. It offers a program that is more natural, here is more about the very intriguing Dr. Gerson
Dr. Max Gerson: Healing the Hopeless discusses the development of his world-famous dietary therapy and the struggles this medical pioneer faced as he challenged orthodox medicine with his nutritional protocol. This inspiring and uplifting biography follows Dr. Gerson through Nazi persecution, then persecution in the United States from the medical establishment, the continuation of his work despite the opposition, his questionable death and finally the present, where daughter Charlotte Gerson and the Gerson Institute work to continue his legacy and vision.
This is a video on the Gerson Miracle, the beginning and the continuing work of the Gerson Institute.It explains the body´s encounter with poisons. Clearly one more mind-blowing video.
This is an almost fifty minutes long video with Charlotte Gerson who is 90 years old! She is amazing. This is fifty minutes well spent I promise!
I simply love Charlotte Gerson, she is my role model. I want to be like her when I am 90!!
The body has remarkable healing powers, we only need to unleash the power.
The power to heal.
If you don´t have anything else planned on this saturday night, This is a film by 15-year-old Garret, called the Beautiful truth. It is about the Gerson therapy and health issues like how amalgam in fillings can deprive people of their health. The issue of food additives like MSG and aspartame is touched and the issue of GMO foods and much more! It is remarkable to witness the denial in the medical profession that say Dr. Gerson therapy is a hoax. If I had to choose today I would choose Dr.Gerson´s method without hesitation!

This is a statement from Cancer Truth:
Sugar is *NOT* your friend. It may feel like your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is actually your enemy. Truth be told, regular consumption of sugary foods is one of the worst things that you can do to your health.
Here you can read the whole ” Sugar is the white death” article on cancer truth.
One of my favorite scientists Dr. Robert H. Lustig is participating in these educational videos from the University of California
Dr. Lustig has also been on 60 minutes talking about his research. It is inspirational to hear him talk against the food industry. He is stepping on many toes. My prediction is that there will be a massive kickback from those who have no sense of social responsibility and poison their fellow-men guilt free.
The first video I saw by Dr. Lustig is one hour and twenty-nine minutes. It is mind-blowing. He is turning everything we have believed about calorie intake before upside down.
So why do I think this is a big deal? Sugar is a drug. Why do I say that? I have been a drug addict and my drug of choice was sugar.The “problem” is that I did not gain weight. That sounds delightful doesn´t it? You know what? My body doesn´t think so. Thanks to an excellent dentist the consequences can not be seen. The damage to my digestive system is something I have to pay attention to every day. Sugar overconsumption is not friendly to the body, not even if you don´t gain weight..
But all in all I am thankful for the lesson. I have only one life. I have to try to live it in harmony with my body and my surroundings.
I put all three videos under “videos” if you want to safe them for later.

Is white meat better than red meat?
Many people avoid red meat for health reasons and eat the lighter meat types such as chicken. Is that such a good idea? The article I´m referring to is the one that tells us about residues of Arsenic, Tylenol and Benadryl in the chicken tested.
Chicken is famous for salmonella if it is not properly cooked , so why has chicken become the health enthusiast food? Because it is cheap? Do you want to know why it is cheap?
That is why! And this is the more humane factory ,it has open windows and fresh air coming in. Usually there would not be windows. Still want to grab a chicken on the way home?
Now I have not even begun on the chicken nuggets or the famous pink slime. If I were to recommend anything I would say find a farmers market in your district and shop there if you really want to know what you are getting.That is if you can not think of skipping the meat altogether. The thing is the vegetables are not that safe either so no matter what your food choice is. You have to know where your food is coming from.
Just to recap here is a clip from the film Food inc .

Are we deliberately being poisoned?
When thinking about toxins in food, we commonly connect it with pesticides used in the production. But mother nature is not perfect so we have to manipulate her and then we get the GMO foods. When the food is processed we add chemicals like Aspartame or MSG to make things taste better. Then we wrap the whole thing in BPA , the plastic chemical Bispenol A used in food packaging. Hungry?
Who is protecting the general public?
We wonder what happened and why people are getting sick? But none of these chemicals or additives are illegal. Lobbyists ensure that they will not be banned in the near future. With a big smile people making the decisions are poisoning their fellow-men in name of what? Money? So the 1% can gain more profit and the rest has to pay with their health?
The regulation comes from us, the people. We can not count on the regulators. That is why we have to be responsible and ask questions. Avoid foods that are conterminated. We need to educate ourselves and make the choices that we can live with, a healthy life.
FDA rules on continuing to allow BPA in food packaging.
Why is Bispenol-A or BPA not banned? FDA decided to let the show go on. FDA decided not ban the use of BPA in food packaging. That is amazing in light of the numerous research that show that BPA , is contributing to cancer, cardiovascular disease and probably best known cause of damage to the reproductive system especially in men. Here is more on the subject.
In the Video the research of Frederic Vam Saal is mentioned, his studies that low dosage of BPA has health risks. Especially concerning the reproductive system.

I just had to post this, because the message is so clear. The three main causes of PREVENTABLE causes of deaths in the U.S.A are;
These are all addiction related , nicotine addiction, food addiction and alcohol addiction. Do you still wonder what the problem is? Obesity is caused by addiction and it needs to be treated like one. And prevented by avoiding the unhealthy, food like products, that is referred to in the trailer.

My look on RAW
It´s funny , this post was supposed to be about RAW food. I´m not into that, but I have tried some RAW food and liked it. I thought RAW was a new fad but I was reading about some guy that discovered this when he was twenty, and he looked at least sixty so according to him the RAW movement had been around for over thirty years.
In the same magazine there was this article about Brothers that were Crazy, Sexy and RAW. Well after reading a little about the RAW food. I found this much more interesting; RAW cosmetics!
Why? Well this video explains why, this is where Story of Stuff teams up with the campaign for safe cosmetics and tells us the truth about our cosmetics.
So, now you probably understand why I got thrown off by the RAW cosmetics. I had newer heard of the concept before , and I found it fascinating.

Does the future have to be like America´s Fat Future presents, or can we do something about it?
If you think organic food is expensive, just think of it as money saved in medical expenses later in life. When I started to buy more organic and more healthy food I had to adjust to the price tag. But I know that I am investing in me, for a more movable fun me, in the future. The poster below is loaded with facts about preventable deaths. That is why we should care.

Dr.Vandana Shiva has fought for the health of seeds. She has educated the world on how GMO food is made. As I understand it the corn is taken and combined with pesticide and then grown. Lab rats suffer kidney and liver failure for eating these foods. What does it then do to us ?
What does GM do to our health? We have no idea. We eat vegetables and fruit in good faith. We think they are good nutrition. But what has been pointed out is that if they are not grown organically or non GMO what do we have?
I got this list sent from a friend; It makes sence. Try the difference in celery for instance. The organic ones are tasty and smell rich. The beauty of celery is that it can help balance water in the body and is helpful with sugar cravings.
Again I have to refer to Michael Pollan and his food rules. If it does not rot eventually it is not food!
I am fascinated by Dr. Vandana Shiva and her spirit. She is one of my heroes.
