+Vodafone Australia this is the reason I am cancelling the accounts.
No network most of the day.
Let me know if you think that's appropriate, considering what you charge me.

Here's another view to the claims of +Dr Michelle Schoffro Cook
I Marta writes
"It's my opinion and broccoli does not prevent cancer I have a 27 year old cousin that was diagnosed 2 months ago with pancreatic cancer and he loves broccoli he use to eat it almost everyday when he was younger so when it's a fact that food can charit then let me know I'm really sorry to sound so cynical you have a great day"
My response in the original post 
"Gee, +Marta I are your doubting the health information on the internet ?
I am very sorry about the loss of your cousin, people who post memes like this are idiots, they are ill informed idiots, or just stupid people who have no knowledge of medicine, or human physiology, but it makes them feel nice if they seem intelligent. They are, however the lowest form of scum."
Indeed Dr. Cook, you are the lowest form of scum, and the others that post such idiocy on the net.

I have a plan to check genetic background - probably I'm not in risk group, but information about family is incomplete. My grandmother died of cancer in age 53, probably stomach but I don't know for sure if it was stomach or other organs (in 1953 diagnostic was not so good).
My mother is 74 and nothing happens, but I don't know what happened with my step-aunt (she dissapeared during WWII), many relatives died prematurely (typhoid, lunge inflammation) so they could be carriers, but died until cancer had it's chance.
Better check and in worst case run the same protocol as Angelina Jolie than die.

Broccoli with sesame oil - sounds good :)

It's a dam fine post, ripped off from +Wolves Den Farm because my blueberry crop last year was 10, they were fine, but hardly enough to allow any for family. In fact, I recall I ate the lot.
 
Learn how to prune blueberries for a larger harvest. Easy step by step instructions and pictures, plus tips for amending the soil for a healthier plant.

Blackmores, the company that sells bullshit remedies.
Articular cartilage does not repair, has no blood supply or nerve.
So, don't buy their "cartilage repair" and don't buy Krill, in fact you would be well advised to avoid the company altogether.
But that's another issue.
Krill has no place in therapy. 
 
Tell Blackmores​ there’s nothing eco about their krill pills. Giant factory ships vacuum up Antarctic krill, taking the food right out of the mouths of whales, seals, penguins and other antarctic marine species that depend on them for survival. #beawellbeing and sign the petition today:

I'd say "It's my duty as a human being", but I don't get religion.
+tina ibrahim good muslims are everywhere, it's just they are not newsworthy. Apparently news needs the lowest common denominator to sell.

When I posted this I said the same thing as +Michael Ringland​ however if he chooses to say it was his beliefs that gave him the courage to act, then so be it. And he has shown even greater courage in speaking out for the 1.6 billion Muslims who are sick of a handful, tarring them all.

An internet TV brings this guy, and his friends into my bedroom.
Thanks +Sam Thorogood , it's a theme song of mine.
I could have met him, shook his hand, but +Warner Brothers and me had issues about what winning meant. Long Story, but you cheap bastards will never be forgotten.

OK, I've got this moron, Dr Cook in my sights now. Michelle, have you heard of heme and non heme iron ?
It seems you have not.
Use Google scholar to find out what a complete and utter idiot this "Dr" is.

A show that exposes the Australian government links to the mafia, drug importation, and  murder. The Minister for Immigration decided to reverse a decision to deport a mafia figure, and guess what? The +Liberal Party of Australia as a result received a donation of thousands of dollars.
+Malcolm Turnbull you are my representative of your sordid government in this matter. What say you ?
I'm not waiting on your reply, you're part of the problem.
When you decide to be part of the solution, let us all know.

I applaud them in continuing to obey their own code of ethics.
BTW the phone number of Tony Abbott's electoral office is (02) 9977 6411.
They'd love a call.

+Michael Ringland​ that's what I thought too until my daughter and also my friend assure me that their cats are much more sophisticated and do try to get people to play or get up or go to sleep, etc., all by vocalizing. It may be that cats are evolving rapidly to satisfy our need for communication. I wrote that half jokingly.

Stress is having 4,902 following the rubbish I write.
Imagine if I offend another 3. It won't be the same.
OK then....god is upset, it seems that the supreme court of the USA has really pissed her off, and she's taking it out on Canadians by setting fire to them. (geography was not big when god went to school, and Canadians are nearly the same as Americans) 
The chemtrails that appear in the sky are not the result of pilots poisoning the public (I love alliteration), but simply water vapour.
Blueberries and lemon will not detoxify a liver bordering on cirrosis.
Chiropractic will not cure baldness, or stupidity.
High heel shoes create bunions and back pain
Cats can rot your brain  (toxoplasma). 
There, that should do it.

I heard that 33% of Australians don't know that a year is, like, 365 days - and has something to do with the earth and the sun (btw the earth is not flat anymore).     OK then, the answer is C. 
(when I did medical exams and didn't know the answer it was generally C = the patient dies).

Story
Tagline
Evidence based medicine was my training, so was teaching kids to read. Now I'm old and happy. Don't pity me, I'm beyond pity.
Introduction
I am a father, husband, carer to some. I wish for world peace and a nice dinner. I drink too much red wine, enjoy making pasta, and growing my own vegetables I was a hippy about 40 years ago and still like making love, not war. If you post stuff about magical properties of healing, expect a rebuke. I might ask about religious opinion, but have no understanding of what it takes to believe, I'm strictly "evidence based"..and wonder why others are not.
Work
Occupation
retired public servant, teacher, waterfront security officer, acupuncturist, physiotherapist.
Skills
bullshit detection...so save your "dust of the Grand Whah-zoo, it won't cure your asthma too"
