Shrinking height, rising obesity, shrinking brains, and raging disease. That’s the modern human. We have paleolithic genes with a pandemic of modern disease. So says the amazing 93-year-old Charles Eugster. One thing he blames, outside of the usual food and exercise question, is the inactivity of the aged, or what he calls voluntary unemployment. Retirement [...]

Fighting childhood obesity is supposed to appeal to the fuzzy-n-warm in all of us, and how dare we so coldly make fun of the propaganda and point out why these campaigns are intended to do nothing more [...]
The website Medical News Today is to medicine what the Oprah Winfrey Show is to intellectual advancement.

The family has been giving parties [...]
Shopping at Detroit Eastern Market, and done by 7am. All locally grown, all organic: arugula, spicy salad mix, okra, tomatoes, sweet onions, leeks, peppers, and cucumbers. And then there is the raw milk for the morning coffee.
Everywhere I go, people want to talk about what they have learned about what really makes us unhealthy and fat. Just yesterday, at the fireplace & BBQ store, another long talk about ensued when one of the salespeople was asking me how I liked my new Weber Genesis they delivered to me a few weeks [...]

Some folks may remember the reports last year of a butter shortage in Norway when the low-carb, high-fat revolution took hold. Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt reported on his blog, earlier this year, that Audi had placed ads that tempted buyers for the new Audi R8 by giving away a pound of butter for free with the purchase of the [...]
