PEOPLE MISSED BITCHING ABOUT RESTAURANTS MORE THAN RESTAURANTS

by Miles Klee  The curious tale of the ‘shredded cheese wife’ reminds us of the actual reason Americans eat out This weekend, we met an incredible new Wife Guy. After three-plus months of being “locked up” for quarantine, a little-known sports podcaster named Jason S. Vicknair and his wife were out for dinner in the suburbs of Dallas, one of several states that reopened bars and restaurants to a surge of coronavirus cases. The couple were less concerned with the pandemic, however, than the service at Mi Cocina, the Tex-Mex chain they had chosen for the first night out since March. The … Continue reading PEOPLE MISSED BITCHING ABOUT RESTAURANTS MORE THAN RESTAURANTS

Why factory farms are a “perfect storm” for disease pandemics

We’ve known this virus was coming. We just didn’t do anything about it. by Derek Beres  As far back as 2007, researchers warned about a novel coronavirus emerging from SARS. Long before that, experts knew that factory farms create the conditions for pandemics. Pandemics will be part of our lives as long as we continue our current methods of meat production. In 2007, a team of researchers at The University of Hong Kong published a review warning of potential dangers of SARS-related coronaviruses emerging in the near future. Four years after the SARS outbreak of 2003 the team poured over a sampling … Continue reading Why factory farms are a “perfect storm” for disease pandemics

Not fasting is killing us, but fasting can hurt us too. Here's what to do.

BY CHRIS TAYLOR There’s a switch inside every cell in your body. Flip it on and you’re in growth mode. Your cells start dividing — but in the process, they make a lot of junk like mis-folded proteins, which help create the conditions for our biggest diseases (including cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s and the big C). Flip the switch off, though, and your cells literally take out the trash — leaving them clean, renewed, effectively young.  We know how to flip the switch. The trick is figuring out when. Because leaving your body in cleanup mode for too long can also be extremely bad for your health, … Continue reading Not fasting is killing us, but fasting can hurt us too.

HOW SUGAR CHANGES YOUR BRAIN CHEMISTRY

Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times If you’re like most people, chances are you’re consuming unhealthy amounts of sugar on a regular basis. Even if you’re not big on candy, most processed foods will provide you with an excessive amount of added sugars.

A can of baked beans contains 6 teaspoons of sugar, which would ideally be your grand … Continue reading HOW SUGAR CHANGES YOUR BRAIN CHEMISTRY

This is a Reason Why a Record Number of Americans Are Fat and Broke

Americans spent roughly $3,500 a year on dining out in 2018, according to government data. by TYLER DURDEN (ZH) — Fast food and takeout are anathema to the ‘clean eating’ lifestyle trend that has swept the US – and much of the developed world – over the past 10 years. But while spending on gym memberships and boutique fitness classes has risen significantly over the past ten years, recent studies show that over-spending on takeout was the biggest financial mistake made by younger Americans in 2018, according to a  MarketWatch report that cited data from a recent study published by Principal.

MAJOR JUNK FOOD COMPANY COLLAPSES

by Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times Since 2012, the millions who want transparency in their food products have been fighting the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association of America (GMA), the brazen trade and lobbying group for junk food makers. Representing major processed food giants like Coke and General Mills, as well as biotech and GMO seed companies like Monsanto, the GMA has probably done more to harm the nation’s collective health than any other single lobbying group. Now, there is good news about this seemingly indefatigable junk food giant: It’s shutting down. GMA has announced a “rebranding,” replete with new name, agenda, goals and personnel. These … Continue reading MAJOR JUNK FOOD COMPANY COLLAPSES

How to Not Die This Thanksgiving

Tips to avoid being poisoned, intentionally or otherwise by JAMES HAMBLIN Last week, the U.S. received a “food safety alert” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The federal agency recommends disposing of all lettuce from Salinas, California—some 75,000 pounds have already been dumped—as well as any lettuce of unclear origin. This particular type of E. coli causes not just diarrhea and vomiting but also kidney failure. So far, 67 people have been made ill. Similar warnings of food-borne outbreaks hit often in the darkening fall days. Tales of … Continue reading How to Not Die This Thanksgiving

Farmed Salmon = Most Toxic Food in the World

by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fish are an important part of the ecosystem and the human diet. Unfortunately, overfishing has depleted many fish stocks, and the proposed solution — fish farming — is creating far more problems than it solves. Not only are fish farms polluting the aquatic environment and spreading disease to wild fish, farmed fish are also an inferior food source, in part by providing fewer healthy nutrients; and in part by containing more toxins, which readily accumulate in fat. Farmed Salmon = Most Toxic Food in the World Salmon is perhaps the most prominent example of how fish … Continue reading Farmed Salmon = Most Toxic Food in the World
