Eggs! You have choices...


Hey, it's Marco! Are eggs good for you? Some say they are...some say they aren't. What the hell, I'm not giving up my eggs! So, if you see USDA Certified Organic on the carton, you can expect that the rules are being followed. The chickens are treated like royalty! If you see Certified Humane: Raised and Handled, you may want to raise an eyebrow. All this means is that the company gives food and water to its caged hens. Finally, if you see United Egg Producers Certified, run for the hills! These poor hens get on average about 80 square inches of living space. Go with the "Certified Organic!" Now when it comes to purchasing eggs, you only have two choices, color and size. Color is simple, white or brown. This is genetics folks! Some chickens lay white eggs, and others lay brown eggs. Color is the only difference. The nutritional value is the same. However, you'll most certainly pay more for the brown eggs because you are supposed to think that they are more natural or healthier. (Even though you throw out the shells anyway) Oh...don't toss them in the disposal! Still haven't figured that one out yet... Eggs come in small, medium and jumbo which means the nutrient content increases with size. Large egg, more protein, a little more cholesterol. Most recipes call for large eggs, so you have to compensate if you buy other sizes. Six medium eggs are equivalent to five large eggs, four extra large, and three jumbo. The grades--AA, A, or B refer to cosmetic differences. Eggs deteriorate with time, so keep them in the fridge, although I've left them on the counter for hours and still enjoyed them without dying, and use them fairly soon! And while you'll pay more for this convenience, you may also purchase them in the half dozen carton. Which is nice btw, because you can keep them in the car to throw at stray cats in the neighborhood! Or in my case, the mean ole lady across the street! Now you know...

YOUR CHILDREN'S HEALTH

Hey, it's Marco! The mass antibiotics experiment is devastating our children's health. Emerging research shows that the harmful effects of antibiotics go much further than the development of drug resistant diseases. The beneficial bacteria lost to antibiotics, along with disease-inducing bacteria, do not recover fully. Worse, flora lost by a mother is also lost to her babies. The missing beneficial gut bacteria are likely a major factor behind much of the chronic disease experienced today. The continuous use of antibiotics is resulting in each generation experiencing worse health than their parents.

Goin' Bananas!


Hey, it's Marco! Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose - combined with fiber.  A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.  Research has proved that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.  No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. You can also cut them in chunks, freeze and blend them in the blender! Mix one today with some avocado, coconut butter, a little organic maple syrup and drink up!

15 FACTS YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT BANANAS...

WHO'S KILLING THE BANANAS? The Monkeys? I Don't Think So...


Hey, it's Marco! Bananas are awesome, right? And they're darn good for you, right? Did you know that eating bananas can help take the edge off depression? Eating bananas can curb your cravings for nicotine? And...get this! Eating bananas can actually cheer you up! But enough about that...I bet you didn't know that our bananas are disappearing! That's right, bananas are dying! They're killed by a fungus, one known to be caused by glyphosate, which is used on bananas. But the loss of bananas may be only the tip of the disaster...

Are Food Dyes Making Your Child Sick?

Should Pediatricians 'Fire' Patients Whose Parents Don't Vaccinate?



Hey, it's Marco! It goes without saying that when you choose a physician, that physician is working for you. It is an oxymoron that a pediatrician is able to "fire" a patient; more accurately, you have a choice as to whom you trust to provide health care for you and your children. So you can always FIRE your doctor. It is YOUR right and YOUR choice to take control of your health and your family's health and you should NEVER allow any doctor to interfere with that right. Remember, vaccines do Not "Make" You Healthy!

Those Nasty Little Voices Inside Your Head...They're Telling You Lies...


Hey, it's Marco! If your voice is telling you why you’re not good enough or smart enough, then it’s time for some daily affirmations. Negative voices put limits on your life and change who you really are.
The biggest reason to learn little-voice mastery is to get back to being who you really are, Change those little voices, and you are on the road to freedom. Remember, all those negative voices are nothing but lies! Buying into these lies can and will be detrimental to your health!

Injecting B-12? No Way! I'm not "sticking" anything in my Butt! Ahem.....


Hey, it's Marco! If you're over 40 and don't like getting shots of B-12, you should be aware that intranasal absorption (that's up the nose btw...) is the next best thing. Oral administration of B-12 is largely ineffective. This goes for so called sublingual B-12 supplements as well. So? How do we get our B-12? Stick it up your nose! Really? Really! Read on...

Vaccines "ARE" Dangerous!



Hey, it's Marco! Finally! The mainstream admits that vaccines are dangerous and cause certain side effects, sometimes serious ones!
"Oh, but my doctor says if we don't vaccinate, we're breaking the law, and my child's head will fall off, and we'll be, you know, labeled as those parents who don't vaccinate and have kids that infect the neighborhood, and people will die, because shots save lives and like, vaccines are the reason no one gets sick any more with, um...polio, and measles and then there's the flu shot which I got last year about this time. I still got the flu, but my doctor said that it would have been much worse had I not taken the shot! That swine flu could have killed me! Que horrible'! Okay, well, my one son did get really bad fever after the shot and wouldn't eat for days. And then  there was the rash, but that went away after the prescription we used, and my daughter still got chicken pox...

Is ‘Blood Stagnation’ Making You Ill?

"Tong ze be tong;
Bu tong ze tong!"

Hey, it's Marco! This is important! Really important! The following list of common ailments related to the quality of blood, paints a picture of how many different issues are related to the quality of our blood.

  • 25.1 million Americans live with heart disease
  • 32% of Americans suffer hypertension
  • 12% of females over age 20 are deficient in iron
  • 16% of adults have high-cholesterol
  • 1 in 6 Americans contract arthritis
  • 26 million Americans, between ages 20-64, suffer back pain

JUICE to ENERGIZE, ALKALIZE & "NUTRIFY"! JUICING & RAW FOOD RECIPES


Hey, it's Marco! Lose the Rockstars, Monsters and Red Bull! Here's an outstanding recipe for alkalizing and ENERGY! And it's darn good too! (Okay, well, the first might suck a little, but once you get the garbage out of your system, you'll love these! You'll crave them too!) Absolutely, positively, guaranteed!

Do plant-based foods have enough protein?

Good question! When discussing food sources of protein, nutritionists often speak in terms of "complete" and "incomplete" proteins. Foods that provide complete protein are those that include all of the essential amino acid, while foods that provide some or none of the essential amino acids are said to be incomplete.
Eggs, dairy foods, meat, fish and poultry are typically considered to be complete proteins. Vegetarians, and especially vegans, often do not have a source of complete protein in their diets, but can easily obtain all of the essential amino acids by eating a variety of beans, grains, nuts, seeds, and vegetables. Now you know!

Do we need the enzymes in fresh fruits and other foods in order to stay healthy?


WOW! Hey, it's Marco! This is quite interesting... No, (BTW...I'm still looking into this!) we do not need the enzymes contained in fresh foods in order to stay healthy. Throughout our digestive tract, organs and cells produce enzymes to help digest food and allow us to absorb nutrients. This digestive process requires a healthy digestive tract, a healthy liver, a healthy pancreas, and a reasonable amount of whole, natural foods.

FACTS ABOUT HOMEOPATHY






Hey, it's Marco! In the last few years there have been many articles in the newspapers attacking
homeopathy, claiming it contains nothing more than water, ignoring all the positive
studies and saying it works through the placebo effect. CRAP! You mean this stuff doesn't work?? I wish someone would have warned me about this "hairy fairy woo woo myth" years ago. I might be sick, tired, overweight, stressed out and possibly dead by now! I might also be hooked on prescription drugs as well! It's too bad the natural or homeopathic way doesn't work! What ever am I going to do now? Go to the doctor? Probably not! I never get sick! Thank you homeopathy!  :D

THE POWER OF CURIOSITY



The majority of Americans spend less than 20 percent of each day doing what could be termed very engaging, enjoyable and meaningful activities (such as talking with close friends, bonding with loved ones, creating, playing, or pursuing a spiritual practice). Instead, most of our time and energy are spent either engaged in unsatisfying work activities and chores (commuting, standing in line at the post office, fixing broken appliances), or decompressing in ways that bring neither joy nor challenge (watching TV, snacking or just “doing nothing”). It doesn’t have to be this way, though — if we’re willing to shake up our pursuit of happiness by introducing some elements of surprise. Curious?

CURIOSITY! GET SOME TODAY...


Hey, it's Marco! Curiosity is an important trait of a genius. I don’t think you can find an intellectual giant who is not a curious person. Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, they are all curious characters. Richard Feynman was especially known for his adventures which came from his curiosity. But why is curiosity so important? Read on to find out...

HELLO LADIES! WANT TO STAY THIN? Don't Get Married!! LOL!


Hey, it's Marco! I didn't make this up... When it comes to large weight gains, the effects of marital transitions are quite different for men than they are for women.
For men, the risk of a large weight gain (beer gut) increased most prominently after a divorce. But for women, the risk of a large weight gain (butt) was most likely after marriage. The day my Wife's arse is bigger than mine...That's it! I'm callin' our attorney!

Physical Activity and Brain Health!


Hey, it's Marco! Regular physical activity, even walking, may be key to maintaining a sharp mind as we get older, two new studies suggest. Who knew? Beats sitting on the couch watching celebrity rehab...

RAW ALMONDS...Are They "Really" Raw?

raw unpasteurized almonds
Hey, it's Marco! “Are raw almonds really raw?” In 99% of the cases, the answer is “No.”
Companies are able to label their almonds raw if they are pasteurized. So when you go to the grocery store and look at the almond labels, you are blatantly being lied to. And you can't sprout a pasteurized almond! So, what does this mean? You're eating DEAD almonds! Why bother?

NATURAL VS. ORGANIC! Is There A Difference?

Hey, it's Marco! ABSOLUTELY! Consumers are being "duped!" We need to wake up and SEEK THE TRUTH and see what the world is becoming. The key is in understanding that it's the process that's unnatural, not the source. When you chemically or structurally alter food ingredients into a form that no longer appears anywhere in nature, it's no longer natural, folks. Regardless, of what the food manufacturers claim. This is the difference between natural vs organic. In the food industry today, there's NO official definition of "all natural." It means whatever the food companies want it to mean. It can mean, for example, that all the chemicals found in the product simply aren't listed on the label. (There's no requirement for food companies to list chemical contaminants found in their foods.) Here's what can be found in your "all natural" food!
•pesticides
•herbicides
•toxic heavy metals
•trace amounts of PCBs
•toxic fluoride
•hidden MSG
•high-temperature cooking byproducts
•synthetic chemical vitamins
•other non-natural substances

ORGANIC FOODS. Are They Safer? May be...


Hey, it's Marco! Once found only in health food stores, organic food is now a regular feature at most supermarkets. And that's created a bit of a dilemma in the produce aisle. On one hand, you have a conventionally grown apple. On the other, you have one that's organic. Both apples are firm, shiny and red. Both provide vitamins and fiber, and both are free of fat, sodium and cholesterol. Which should you choose?

Fruit for Breakfast? Are yooo "stupid" or sumpthin??

5 A Day Made Easy
Hey, it's Marco! Here's the deal! Starting in the morning, have nothing but organic fruit and/or organic home made fruit juice until noon! (None of that store bought crap that's been pasteurized!) Eat as much as you want, no limits, have a little water if you want. Try it for seven days. One week. It'll take a little getting used to, but believe me, just do it. Then, on the eighth day, have your normal breakfast, and tell me what happens! Tell me what happens...

WHATHA HELL?? MERCURY "STILL" IN VACCINES?


Hey, it's Marco! Wait a minute?  Didn't the vaccine industry claim that they took Thimerosal out of childhood vaccines?  Yes, they claimed that - and they lied.  They actually did just a show removal, taking Thimerosal out of only 3.48 percent of those vaccines - and all of that was in the US, attempting to mollify, and mislead, American parents of damaged children.  About 104 million childhood vaccines are administered, worldwide, each year, and only about 4 million have a preservative other than Thimerosal.

Big Pharma now pushing for 20 new vaccines in next decade



The fact that more than one inoculation of any vaccine is required indicates true immunity is not granted by vaccination!

Hey, it's Marco! The mainstream media is extremely one sided with its vaccine reporting. It is a PR outlet for the pharmaceutical industry, especially when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry’s sacred cow – vaccines. A recent example is a BBC item announcing a UK research project to come up with twenty new “improved” vaccines over the next decade. As usual, the article strongly implies that those who avoid vaccinations are "LOONY"!

Keeping you safe from walnuts! Oh my!

Hey, it's Marco! FDA officials are being picky and difficult when it comes to walnuts. They have determined that walnuts sold by Diamond Foods cannot be legally marketed because the walnuts “are not generally recognized as safe and effective” for the medical conditions referenced on Diamond Foods’ website. According to the FDA, these walnuts are now classified as “drugs” and the “unauthorized health claims” cause them to become “misbranded,” thus subjecting them to government “seizure or injunction.” WTF! I thought that eating walnuts may actually help cut your heart disease risks! Get this! The U.S. National Library of Medicine database contains 35 peer-reviewed published papers supporting this claim! Gotta love the FDA!

"INGREDIENTS" film trailer



Hey, it's Marco! American food is in a state of crisis. Health, food costs and our environment are all in jeopardy. A movement to put good food back on the table is emerging. What began 30 years ago with chefs demanding better flavor, has inspired consumers to seek relationships with nearby farmers. This is local food. At the focal point of this movement, and of this film, are the farmers and chefs who are creating a truly sustainable food system. Their collaborative work has resulted in great tasting food and an explosion of consumer awareness about the benefits of eating local.

WHY WEIGHT TRAINING MATTERS!


Hey, it's Marco! Your heart needs oxygen, so you do aerobics and cardio. But you should also add in some weight training to your routine. No, lifting weights isn't just a way to beef up your pecs and make your thighs harder than granite (though weight lifting is a great way to do both). Weight training also gives your body and your brain some other perks that are equally as gratifying. And it can make your brain smarter too! Listen, just because you're not vying for 20-inch biceps or thunderously strong thighs like the muscle heads in the gym doesn't mean you should shun the weight room. Lifting weights gives you an edge over belly fat, stress, heart disease, and cancer—and it's also one of the most effective ways to look and feel your best!

WANT A HEALING POWERHOUSE IN A GLASS! (Not a syringe...)

garlic-kissed-carrot-juice_w.jpg
Hey, it's Marco! A simple glass of fresh carrot juice is a nutritious drink on its own, but when you add the benefits of fresh garlic, turmeric powder, and top it off with some fresh squeezed lemon juice, it converts into a healing powerhouse in a glass. This drink is exceptionally high in vitamin A, minerals, and other nutrients. The fresh-juiced garlic with all its benefits adds a surprisingly nice light flavor, and it is not overpowering. Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and purifying properties, and the extra dose of vitamin C from the lemon juice bring to this drink more bonuses.

Exercise is "Miracle Gro" for you Brain!


Hey, it's Marco! At 7:45 a.m. each weekday, while most of his peers at Naperville Central High School in Naperville, Ill., are sitting in class and groggy with sleep, 15-year-old Matt Bray is running sprints, jumping rope, lifting weights, and engaging in other activities, all aimed at getting his heart pumping.  This early-morning exercise class is about more than getting in shape, though. A small but growing number of experts and educators suggest that Mr. Bray is priming his brain for learning at the same time he’s sculpting his
biceps. "So much for the dumb jock..."

The Snooze Button

Hey, it's Marco! There’s a strange phenomenon called "The Snooze Button Effect" that’s been plaguing my world for years! Here's what happens! In my sleepy stupor, I press a button that, as the hypothesis goes, can supposedly delay an undesirable event from happening for several minutes or until I find the courage to get up off my arse! How is it that a press of a button can cause me to believe its delusional effects. As if a few more minutes of sleep will actually make a positive difference! Thanks to the great Dr. Wayne Dyer, I now realize "The breeze at dawn has secrets to offer, don't go back to sleep!" (If you get that, you'll know what I'm talking about!) Here's what the wonderful Mel Robbins has to say about the dreaded snooze button...
The Snooze Button

PS!  "The Breeze at Dawn?" What the?? The breeze at dawn is the time of the greatest inspiration and creativity for me, it's the time when you are the closest to your Source/God/Divine Being/Alien Visitor. Therefore, when you arise, put your feet on the floor, feel the morning breeze and listen to your inspirational thoughts...or just get up, brush your teeth, and go for a run! You'll never want to, but if you want to tone up that big butt, or shed that beer gut, you're gonna have to do what no one else will do for you! Exercise CAN make you smarter too! That will be my next post...

WHAT IS "MOOMBA?"

My only obstacle my be attitude...

Hey! It's Marco! If you have a horrible attitude, how can you compete with someone who has an outstanding attittude? You can't! Why? Because attitude is everything! How would you feel if you had a better attitude? How would you look? How would you stand? How would you breathe? The next time you find yourself with a bad attitude, pick yourself up? Want to know how? Do something nice for someone else! Not only will they feel better, you will feel better too! Change your actions, change your thoughts and you'll change your feelings! And never let your setbacks become your identity. Remember, a setback is only a setup for a comeback! You are not a victim. And don't believe everything you think! The majority of your thoughts are not true! Got monkey mind? Getting healthy ain't Hocus Pocus...it's Focus Focus! You'll never know how truly wonderful being totally healthy, vibrant and fit feels until you get there! So start today! Imagine if you had started a year ago how much better you would be feeling today! Why wait, it's the start that stops most people! Be strong, live long! And remember, don't count the days, make the days count! (And yes, I'm doing my very best to practice what I preach!)

DINOSAUR TRAINING WITH BROOKS KUBIK!



Hey, it's Marco! Irregular Training is the way to your physical desires. You must remember that your muscles quickly become accustomed  to a steady routine with the same weights. You must jolt them out of their familiar rut; which is done with "IRREGULAR TRAINING." So says Mr. Kubik! Ok! I'm in! Just as soon as I finish this pizza, I'll get started!  And yes, it's a homemade veggie pizza with made with real bread and some good ole raw cheese! No one makes sauce as well as I do! (Okay...so I bought the sauce from Goodfellas!)

BENEFITS OF RAW CAMU CAMU POWDER!



Hey, it's Marco! Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is the name of a bush which grows in the Amazonian rain forest of Peru. The Camu-Camu bush produces a fruit with the same name which contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world. The camu-camu fruit has a surprising range of therapeutic effects. Many people have stopped using large dosages of synthetic Vitamin C because they find that Camu-Camu is energizing, mood-lifting and highly effective in strengthening the immune system. Got benefits? Absolutely!  The Camu Camu Berry contains powerful phytochemicals, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world. Specifically, the Camu Camu fruit contains 30 to 60 times more Vitamin C than an orange in its fresh state, delivers up to 600 TIMES MORE vitamin C than oranges when it’s dried into the powder form.  Camu Camu powder has an exceptionally rich amount of whole, natural vitamin C— quickly becoming one of the most sought-after vitamin C sources in the world. Camu Camu contains important levels of beta carotene, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin.  Also contains trace amounts of iron and calcium. It's a little tart and tangy with a very nice citrus flavor. Add it to your smoothies, fresh, organic, homemade juices and be sure to give it to your children! 

Warning! This wonderful source of goodness DOES NOT, I repeat, does not come in a vaccine! Therefore, no needles and little bootys will be harmed! :D

WHEAT, CORN AND SOY. Should You Cut Back on these Foods? Uh...Yeah!


Hey, it's Marco! According to well renowned nutrition author Michael Pollan, and his amazing book called In Defense of Food, humankind has historically consumed approximately 80,000 different species of edible plants, animals, and fungi, and approximately 3,000 of those have been widespread foods of the human diet. Now get ready for a shocking and appalling statistic...
Currently, the average adult eating a typical modern western diet in countries such as the US, Canada, Australia, etc consumes approximately 67% of their total caloric intake from only 3 foods -- CORN, SOY, AND WHEAT (and their derivatives).

Tabata Training - The fastest way to fitness and fat loss

Hey, it's Marco! Want to get cut fast? Sure you do! Then try a little "Goya!" (Get Off Yer Ass!) And "Run Forrest!" Tabata training was discovered by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. Dr. Tabata discovered that this kind of interval training produces much better results than aerobic training. This included building as much muscular endurance as forty five minutes of normal cardio training!

Simple “Mind Trick” Could Help You Avoid a Stroke


WOW! Hey, it's Marco! To understand the power of a positive mindset you have to know what your mindset currently is and what a positive mindset looks like. Ask yourself - What is my attitude?
When you get up first thing in the morning are you full of energy? Are you happy and ready to tackle the day? Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds! Remember, put your body in motion and the emotion will follow! And stay away from negative people! As I always say, "Love your family, choose your peers!" (Nobody wants a stroke!)

CANCER REVISITED WITH DR. JOHANNA BUDWIG

THE BUDWIG DIET! 

Hey, it's Marco! Meet Dr. Johanna Budwig.  She left us in 2003, at the ripe age of 95, but she looked like she was in her 70's.  She was nominated six times for the Nobel Prize for medicine, which means that it would be wise to take her health work seriously.  We call her a saint, but doctors-in-the-know thought of her as a god.  Did we mention that she cured cancer ― not treated ― but cured it in "terminally ill" patients; even patients which the establishment had surrendered to fate, claimed were "untreatable..."

CAN YOGA HELP KIDS SLEEP? You bet!

Kids Yoga Guide
Hey, it's Marco! Bedtime is often one of the most stressful times of the day for families. (Especially around my house!) LOL! Kids are bouncing off the walls on their second wind, parents are exhausted, and the clock says it’s past time to be asleep. Yoga can help bring a sense of calm, induce the relaxation response, and ensure a good night sleep for children and parents alike. And, you might just save your marriage! And your sanity...

"RAWESOME FOODS" OWNERS GOIN' TO JAIL!



Hey, it's Marco! In yet another example of wasted resources and misplaced priorities police in LA have raided Rawesome Foods, arresting three people in connection with the distribution of raw milk products without the proper permits.

"James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched. Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store — which is used to purchase product for selling there — agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.
James was handcuffed, was NEVER read his rights and was stuffed into an UNMARKED car. While agents said they would leave behind a warrant, no one has yet had any opportunity to even see if such a warrant exists or if it is a complete warrant."

PASTEURIZED MILK? GOOD OR EVIL?


Hey, it's me again...Not to trash milk, I personally don't care for the stuff especially when one has almond and rice milk available, but the more I learn about pasteurized milk, the more I truly believe it to be pure garbage! Unless of course you're a calf. Now I don't know much about this "Rense" guy but I think he's really just trying to help! And he's got a really cool fake moustache! Besides, if you think how powerful Big Dairy is, I'm sure there's a way to torture and manipulate data until it conforms to one's desired result!

MILK! It's quite good for you after all! Oh yeah...as long as it's RAW!

MILK! 
The REAL Story. 


Hey, it's Marco! Claims that raw milk is unsafe are based on 40-year-old science and century-old experiences from distillery dairy “factory farms” in rapidly urbanizing nineteenth century America. Got it?

Few people are aware that clean, organic, raw milk from grass-fed cows was actually used as a medicine in the early part of the last century. That's right. Milk straight from the udder, a sort of "stem cell" of foods, was used as medicine to treat, and frequently cure some serious chronic diseases. From the time of Hippocrates to until just after World War II, this "white blood" nourished and healed uncounted millions.
Clean raw milk from pastured cows is a complete and properly balanced food. You could live on it exclusively if you had to. But who wants to live on milk? Not me! So if you must have your milk and cookies, make sure you're drinkin' the REAL stuff!
