Food Matters Film

“This film lays out the inconvenient truth the food industry doesn’t want you to hear – that nearly all degenerative disease is actually caused by the processed, nutrient-depleted food being consumed in first-world nations around the world. ‘Food Matters’ dares to reveal how we can stop this cycle of destruction and restore true health to ourselves and our planet.” – Mike Adams, the Health Ranger founder of Natural

Let me underscore a portion of that quote from Mike Adams: “nearly all degenerative disease is caused by processed, nutrient-depleted food”.
That is why I make my healthy food bars. I do not want to get an avoidable degenerative disease like cancer, stroke, heart attack, dementia, Alzheimer’s and I am prepared to eat healthier than normal to avoid them.
Join me will you? While it will be somewhat validating, I don’t want to be the loneliest, oldest, most active person alive. I want some company! I don’t want to say, “See, I was right!” to the trees! I would much rather say, “See, we were right!” to a group of happy, healthy, active fellow centenarians.

From Dr Pepi on Vitamin B1

Thiamine (B-1) is the “anti-stress” vitamin. Not only does B-1 reduce stress, it can also make you feel happier. It can improve your ability to think clearly by improving brain function. B-1 is an immune system booster and protects against aging. It is essential for your body to metabolize (break down) fats, carbs and proteins. B-1 helps preserve the health of your heart, muscles and nervous system. Thiamine is a great energy producer. Deficiencies affect cardiovascular, nervous, muscular and gastrointestinal tissues.
As vitamin B-1 does not store in your body, it is depleted quickly and easily. For instance, one upset can really deplete your supply of B-1! These things also deplete your B-1: drugs, antibiotics, alcohol, cigarettes, sodas, caffeine, sugar and chocolate. (I know, I know, this is upsetting – go take some B-1.)


When expectation exceeds reality, disappointment follows.
But when you demand more, reality is often bettered.
If you have ever been let down, you will appreciate the truth in the first line.
There is a subtle but huge difference in expecting (passive desire or wish) and demanding (causative intention) more from someone.
The intention level (low when wishing but high with demanding) is what makes the difference.
Next time you want an improvement in your life, demand it from yourself.
Oh. You thought I was talking about demanding more from others?
No, I was talking to you, about you.
You see, you are the most influential person in your life.
Nobody has as much influence with you as you do.
Nobody spends as much time with you as you do.
Nobody talks to you as much as you do.
What others say to you is infinitesimally insignificant compared to what you say to you.
If you do not act on the most brilliant advice you receive, it is as if it was never given.
Mediocre advice, acted upon, is infinitesimally more powerful than the best advice ignored.
So make some time this weekend to do these steps.
Imagine yourself to have NO FEAR! Imagine yourself to be all powerful, capable of facing up to any task, conquering any challenge and reaching any goal you set for yourself.
What would you aim for if you maintained that viewpoint?
With that in mind, review the advice you are operating on, your “self talk”, the conversation you have with yourself. See if you can give yourself some better advice.
Then act on it.
After all, who better to follow advice from than the person who knows you best?

India files biopiracy lawsuit against Monsanto, says biotech giant is stealing nature for corporate gain

Representing one of the most agriculturally bio-diverse nations in the world, India has become a primary target for biotechnology companies like Monsanto and Cargill to spread their genetically-modified (GM) crops into new markets. However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for “biopiracy,” accusing the company of stealing India’s indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties.
