The other day I got together with a doctor from the University of Alberta and had a great conversation. I love the opportunity to talk to brilliant educated people. I always learn a lot in a short period of time. We talked a lot about different studies and the shadiness of getting studies done to prove your side of the argument. She talked about Tim Caulfield who debunks beliefs in science and shows how you can find obscure correlations and evidence in studies to prove your argument no matter what your argument might be. I’ll come back to this point; remember the name Tim Caulfield.
Last week I wrote an article talking about how 50% of articles written are 100% bullshit. I didn’t mention in that article how many studies are also crap. I have heard about half the studies are also skewed to prove a product. One of my clients is a pediatrician who studied this exact topic while getting her PhD. When I asked her what percentage of studies are false, all she said was, "A lot." and chuckled.
My number one recommendation is to use food to get as much nutrient as possible. Eat as nutrient rich foods as possible. Always take the broccoli and spinach over the french-fries and ketchup.
My good man Gordon Downie just passed through town for the last time. I’m very sad I never got the chance to see him. I’m terribly heartbroken the Tragically Hip lead singer doesn’t have long to live. He is a Canadian icon and has a knack for Canadian references in his songs that sound so natural and unforced. No one can do it the way Gordon Downie can do it. FYI Trois Pistoles is a cute little town near the coast in Quebec that I passed through on my way to Gaspe.
I work as an EMT at my second job and I worked as an EMT as my fulltime job for 10 years. I have seen all kinds of health problems and it's hard to watch when I know how to prevent health problems. The most common problem I’ve seen is abdominal pain. About half of the abdominal problems leave the hospital undiagnosed. You have to wonder why.
1. Bromide- attaches to thyroid hormone carrier. This prevents T4 from being transformed into the active T3 thyroid hormone.
2. Sugar- is used by the food industry to make food as addictive as humanly possible. The fast absorption makes sugar drug like and gives a person a quick high, then a crash. The end result is fat gain and left feeling tired and wanting more.
In last week's article I talked about GMOs and the unbelievable dangers of eating this toxic waste. This stuff is10x worse than I thought. It should most definitely be illegal cuz it kills people way faster than any hazard I've heard of but this is the greatest example of how the American dollar rules the world. If you have faith in your government to regulate hazards to keep you safe, forget about it!
20 years ago Dr. Jeffrey Smith went to a lecture. A genetic engineer was talking about how they are about to genetically engineer the food supply. This engineer was intimately familiar with the technology and he said that the technology wasn’t ready for production. He said it was completely dangerous for those who eat it and for the environment. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been trying to eliminate GMOs ever since.
As an EMT, half the people I see going to the emergency room are in for abdominal problems and half of those people leave the hospital undiagnosed. While your family doctor argues with an alternative medicine doctor about whether leaky gut syndrome exists or not, let me explain what it is, how it’s caused, and what to do about it. I want you to know this isn’t like the sasquatch; you see it every day, it has a profound effect on our society, and you probably have it to some
Holy are beans controversial! The vegans say eat them, the Paleos say don’t eat them, Timothy Ferris, author of the 4-hour body says eat them, Dr. Mark Hyman says don’t eat them. Every article I read says something different. Who’s right? I guess that depends what you are looking to accomplish with your diet.
