A Weapon More Destructive Than A Nuclear Bomb: It Has Already Been Deployed
We live in times (once again) where stability is threatened by forces around the world. Everyone threatens each other with atomic talk. Random bombings, terrorism and shootings becoming part of the regularly reported news. Centrifuges, uranium enrichment, ballistic missiles, nuclear warheads…what catastrophic events do we face next? These events are nothing more than distractions, however. […]
“DON’T WORRY, IT’S SAFE”
What causes the disconnect between our eyes and our brains? How can we view this picture and not question the POSSIBILITY that pesticide spraying of our crops is detrimental to our HEALTH? How can we stare directly at the PROTECTIVE SUITS needed to apply these dangerous products and believe these poisons do not affect the […]
IS YOUR CHILD FAT?
IS YOUR CHILD FAT? Here’s a question a growing segment of our PARENTAL population is going to have to begin asking themselves. The need to face REALITY is NOT based on aesthetics but rather the diseases and traumatic life altering compromises our children face if we continue to avoid this topic. The argument, “we should […]
Poison is defined as: “a substance that is capable of causing the illness or death of a living organism when introduced or absorbed.” What if research found that fast food consumption four or more times a week increased the risk of DEATH from heart disease by: 80%?

“KNOWING” vs. “UNDERSTANDING” DETERMINES PERSONAL COMMITMENT TO HEALTHY OUTCOMES

FOOD vs. FOOD “STUFF”
With every passing day, our concerns about distinguishing FOOD from FOOD “STUFF“ fades away. Our focus tends to shift from nutritional needs to satiating hunger. Our food choices are selected based on (1) speed, (2) convenience, (3) taste (4) and affordability. This has resulted in a desensitized population that no longer understands the meaning and […]
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET HEALTHY WITHOUT EXERCISING?
NO! I don’t care how many articles profess cleaning a house, walking a dog and standing instead of sitting at a desk constitutes exercise; these activities do NOT SUBSTITUTE for structured exercise programs. They are all good activities and should be incorporated into our lives, but structured physical exercise is mandatory to achieve and maintain […]
DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR FAVORITE SUPERHEROES AS A CHILD?
My two favorite were Superman and Batman. As corny as the shows were, the “good guys” always displayed valor, honor, integrity, compassion and commitment while fighting “EVIL” to protect mankind. Do you remember how their physical presentation added even greater “strength” to the characters they portrayed? Looking at them from today’s perspective, their costumes rather […]
MY FELLOW READERS, I REST MY CASE!
Sometimes a picture(s) is worth a thousand words: This is my gym. . The following 4 pictures were taken STANDING IN FRONT OF MY GYM (and/or the parking lot.) . 10.4 MILES AWAY AND 19 MINUTES DRIVING TIME WE FIND THE CLOSEST WHOLE FOODS MARKET. AND WE WONDER WHY WE FACE AN OBESITY EPIDEMIC?! REALLY?
