interesting parallels between the Tobacco industry and Food industry when it comes in information / mis-information... 
Using the tobacco industry playbook, food companies have been caught trying to undermine public health policies by manipulating the scientific process.

head spinning results of the Kempner Rice diet in the 1940's that stopped and reversed high blood pressure, heart disease and kidney disease....   interesting...
Dr. Walter Kempner was a pioneer in the use of diet to treat life-threatening chronic disease, utilizing a diet of mostly rice and fruit to cure malignant hypertension and reverse heart and kidney failure.

one of the most important aspects to "Lean" (Lean Manufacturing / Toyota Production System).  and really any progress in business... in startups... in life...
 
There are no solutions. Only countermeasures.

Excellent video about NO and its impact on blood flow in our arteries...

http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-power-of-no/
Antioxidants protect NO synthase, the enzyme that produces the artery-relaxing signal, nitric oxide. This may explain why those who eat especially antioxidant-rich plant foods have improved flow-mediated dilation of the brachial arteries.

hi All, Its been a while since i've contributed, been busy building a startup...  and i wanted to share it with you because i think it's relevant to this community and creating better business & a better world. 

It is all about capturing that "hunch", spark or seed of an idea, exploring them & creating more fully formed ideas in a short time. 

We've just launched the early beta and are having some fun by running an  "Idea Hackathon" on health, wellness & the environment...  All virtual...  No coding...  and some cash prizes... 

I felt there would be some great ideas on "Good business" that are relevant to this...  You can check it out here...

many thanks Rob

Get some spice into you.... and some facts about increased risk from eating animal fats....
Carcinogens in grilled and baked chicken may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer, while curcumin, the yellow pigment in the spice turmeric, may sometimes help even in advanced stages of the disease.

Story
Introduction
Business strategy with special focus on technology and the discipline of innovation.

Have done quite a few things from startups in Silicon Valley, raised capital, awarded US Patent, won business model award, lucky to work with some ridiculously smart people, sailed across the Atlantic ocean, worked for other startups, called into businesses to save distressed projects and recovered all of them, built a heap of web systems. And after a lot of hard work, I finally found some answers to the question. 

I love the hunt for value. Business, strategy, design, science and engineering, ideas of all forms and trying to turn those ideas into products, execution and innovation (delivering new value to markets). 

I'm into endurance sport, especially ironman distance triathlons and everything that goes with that: the lifestyle, getting outdoors, the discipline, the self discovery, and the network of likeminded people.

Coffee / retail hybrid. Coffee is solid enough. And comes with some hipster attitude.
