Too many presidential candidates court corporate cash by promoting ethanol Paul Driessen Donald Trump loves to tout his poll numbers. But if he’s doing so well, why does he pander to Iowa’s ethanol interests? The gambit might...

"Arguably the most perfect meal you can eat, this 4-way beans, rice, squash and avocado are food cornerstones in Nicoya, Costa Rica—consumed by centenarians there for centuries.  This is high in fiber, complex carbohydrates and offers complete proteins.   You could eat only this meal and be healthy for life. And it’s incredibly easy!"

Saying it like it is! No sugar coating! No pussy footing.
"This photo is worth 1,000 words. People everywhere are becoming more and more sick. We have been systematically brainwashed and dumbed down by media, government, and corporations. We've put our trust in people whose main goal is profit. We consume the products that cause the disease then go to doctors/hospitals for the treatment; not the cure. Their hope is that your sickness remains cyclical. Cancer treatment is a 97 billion dollar a year industry. There's no money to be made when people are healthy. Doctors only receive a total of 8hrs in nutrition study in their whole 8yrs of schooling. Very rarely do they discuss food as a solution, more often than not they prescribe you a pill and send you on your way. They are professional drug pushers. I'm not saying to not trust the advice of your health care professional, some of them actually care about your health, but what I am saying is true health begins on the plate. You are what you eat, and if you eat unhealthy then you'll be unhealthy. The power is literally in your hands."-- David Carter, A.K.A. the 300 Pound Vegan posted this on Instagram

Henry Ford was an advocate of vegetarianism, quite slim, and lived to be 87. "Most people dig their graves with their teeth." he would say. His executives dreaded being invited to lunch with him.

My flip comment would be there are none, but my favorite Doctor does concede to one-- and the solution is simple. Rinse your mouth with water afterward to protect your tooth enamel, and sip your smoothie slow, [enjoy it] so you don't overeat [something I need to practice]! Otherwise, bonne sante!
Concerns about smoothies and oxalic acid, nitrate availability, dental erosion, and weight gain are addressed.

To celebrate the life of David Bowie, who left this earth on Jan. 10, here are stories behind a few of his songs. This creative genius left a beautiful legacy.

     You'd think guns were the number one cause of death in this country the way the media cries for putting an end to our Second Amendment right.   If they were to truly be interested in saving lives, they'd start at the top, where the numbers are hundreds of thousands of times higher. 

     Some statistics for some perspective on the matter of safe and responsible gun ownership in the U.S. and related cause of deaths per year in the U.S.  

     If you want to go after the leading causes of death in this country, and your passion is save lives, start with our Standard American Diet and the number of alcohol and nicotine related deaths.   But don't count on your doctor to tell you what's best for your diet.   Medical errors are now the third highest leading cause of death in this country, second only to  heart disease and cancer.  

Heart Disease:
About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.1
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men.1
http://www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/facts.htm

Doctor Error Related Deaths:

     "It's a chilling reality – one often overlooked in annual mortality statistics: Preventable medical errors persist as the No. 3 killer in the U.S. – third only to heart disease and cancer – claiming the lives of some 400,000 people each year."   http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/deaths-by-medical-mistakes-hit-records

Diabetes:
Diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States in 2010, with 69,071 death certificates listing it as the underlying cause of death, and a total of 234,051 death certificates listing diabetes as an underlying or contributing cause of death. - See more at: http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/statistics/#sthash.Wb3K9kC3.dpuf

Cigarettes:
Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year.1,6 Cigarette smoking is estimated to cause the following:1
    •    More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
    •    278,544 deaths annually among men (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
    •    201,773 deaths annually among women (including deaths from secondhand smoke)

Alcohol-Related Deaths:
    •    Nearly 88,0009 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women10) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making it the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.9

    •    In 2013, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 10,076 deaths (30.8 percent of overall driving fatalities).11
http://www.niaaa.nih.gov/alcohol-health/overview-alcohol-consumption/alcohol-facts-and-statistics

All injury deaths (accidental)
    •    Number of deaths: 192,945
    •    Deaths per 100,000 population: 60.2

All poisoning deaths
    •    Number of deaths: 48,545
    •    Deaths per 100,000 population: 15.4


Motor vehicle traffic deaths
    •    Number of deaths: 33,804
    •    Deaths per 100,000 population: 10.7

All firearm deaths
    •    Number of deaths: 33,636
    •    Deaths per 100,000 population: 10.6

Dan rode the Orca down to Costa Mesa today, and I chose to stay home and work on miscellaneous chores, such as dealing with our health care plan, some laundry, and raking the front yard, which is a rather large yard.  I filled three old school trash cans fu...

     If you want to be able to live into your retirement years in California, and you plan on being on a fixed income that doesn't include welfare, you should be concerned about the unfunded public employee pension liabilities that we, the taxpayers, are on the hook for.
      Unless there is some reform, we will be liable, and the state government will have the authority to make us pay, in the form of higher taxes and fees, at all levels, no matter how much it hurts our personal financial situation.
     This is one of those cases that will hurt us, unless we choose to pay attention and support the bipartisan effort, strongly represented by Democrats but including Republicans, libertarians and decline-to-state voters.

"Among the many things missing from either of last night's GOP debates (coff, coff, Rand Paul) was any substantive discussion of reducing overall government spending. Toward the end of the undercard debate, Carly Fiorina did say something about the Republican Party being devoted to shrinking the size and spending of government, but that was about it."
These days, would-be presidents are only interested in increasing spending, especially on defense.

Here is a classic example of how our genes don't necessarily dictate our future destiny.   Other factors, including diet can trump a strong genetic susceptibility.
Diet may explain the Nigerian Paradox, where they have among the highest rates of the Alzheimer’s susceptibility gene, ApoE4, but among the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease.

"Bonus video: In 1987's "Concert For Berlin," Bowie played "Heroes," a song that name-checks the Berlin Wall, within earshot of the GDR. It's a tremendous, must-watch performance.
The government of Germany tweeted a tribute to Bowie, calling that concert, two years before the Wall was torn down (and mere weeks before Ronald Reagan's exhortation to "tear down this wall"), an imporant step in ending communist domination of East Germany:  "Good-bye, David Bowie... Thank you for helping to bring down the #wall."
In 2003, he memorably recounted the emotions surrounding that performance:"
His insistent, playful shape-shifting helped to create a freer, more individualized world.

I think this time I am finally going to stay the course, and this will be a huge breakthrough in my life
      I know that developing a practice and habit to meditate is the single most important thing I can do to help myself with worsening joint pains. Diet is important, but what goes on in my head space is super important too. Certainly no less signi...

Feel really lucky to be able to be a member of this gym/sports club. The staff is all really friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean. The machines are all in good condition. The 2 pools are kept clean and at a comfortable 80 to 81 degrees and they're outside, so you don't have to worry about breathing harmful fumes full of waste that need to dissipate from the surface of the pool. And it's so affordable. I'm grateful.

Went vegan in May, and neededsome fuel. Got their vegan burrito. Glad they have one. That's a good sign. But it was refried beans, white rice, iceberg lettuce and for pototoes, tater tots. Not that fuel powered boost im hooked on when I eat a cleaner more whole food type of burrito. Beans less mashed and processed, some whole grain rice, some dark greens and diced tomatoes, some baked or grilled potatoes would make it a hit.

This is my favorite market in town since we moved to West Hills from Whittier. I find the fruits, and vegetables to be fresh and beautiful and bountiful and the prices fair and affordable. I find the variety of chilies we like, and today I bought their store made corn and flour tortillas. The corn tortillas were still warm from their freshness and the flour tortillas, I bought in the burrito size, are delicious. I love the quality of the beets, eggplant, red chard, carrots, papaya, bananas and more, all staples we consume, and priced so reasonably. And if you love traditional Mexican fare, the fresh cheese, the pork chicharrones, the fresh salsas are good quality.
