How to Exercise Your Tongue by Adding More Variety to Your Diet...

Here are some exercise tips…for your palate:

1. Eat More Bitter Foods. We're all born with an aversion to bitterness, but our levels of sensitivity vary greatly. Some kids will eat broccoli from the get-go. It may taste one-third as bitter to them as it does to the child who tests your very last nerve at the dinner table. You can usually tell who is the tolerant taster (that is, the one with the less sensitive palate) and who is the hypertaster ("I only eat white foods"), but you can coach and nurture them both into being open-minded eaters.

One study found that only 5% to 8% of the calories we eat are bitter. But the compounds that make foods taste bitter (carotenoids in sweet potatoes and spinach, flavonoids in cranberries and kale, polyphenols in wine) also make them good for us. Consider the initial taste shock of bitter foods such as cranberries, cocoa and kale to be positive, rather than negative. Bitter = healthful.

2. Try Something New. At a restaurant, order something you would never cook at home. Instead of recoiling at the smell of something foreign and pungent, get to know it better. I used to abhor the very smell of canned tuna. That was before I landed a canned-tuna client and had to taste it every week for four years. These days I'm an aficionado of good (healthy) tuna.

Is that Poison or Health Food? Your guess is as good as mine...


And a big THANK YOU to Barbara Peterson from Farm Wars! 

Compromise. That’s what it’s all about, eh? We are taught from early on that the only way to get along is to go along. Meet halfway, in the middle. Don’t be such a stickler. Nothing is so sacred or important that it cannot stand a little compromise.
And just were has this type of thinking gotten us? Just how willing should we be to compromise and lay our values down on the altar of coexistence?
Just how much compromise do we have to accept to feel that it is okay to allow others to put poison in our food, to spray poisons on the land that we are supposed to be stewards of, to poison our animals that trust us to take care of them, to drop poisons from the sky, to put poisons in pills and vaccines that we are ordered to get if we want to keep subsistence jobs working for people who would rather see us dead than alive because we are just a statistic and replaceable, and to poison our very water supply?
We are dying, and it’s our own fault. We are compromising our way into extinction with only ourselves to blame. But it’s okay if we keep believing the lies. If we keep hiding our heads in the sand and accepting the falsehoods that make us feel good, eh?
We love the lies that make us feel like we are all powerful and in control of our pitiful existence. Yes, pitiful. Just how pitiful is it when poisons are sold next to healthy foods and we have to guess which is which, all under the banner of “choice” and “free will?” You tell me, because, quite frankly, I’ve had just about enough of it. I want truth. I want uncompromising truth, no matter how much it hurts. Read on health nuts!

What tha? There are exercises for my eyes? Really? Suhweet!


For generations, the people of Tibet have used natural methods to correct visual weakness and improve their eyesight. Chief among the methods employed has been the use of certain exercises which have proved useful over long periods of time.

The figure on this eye chart was designed by Tibetan Lama Monks to give the necessary corrective exercises and stimulation to the muscles and nerves of the optical system. The eye muscles focus similar to a camera shutter. The purpose of these exercises is to strengthen the eye muscles to improve vision. A few minutes practice morning and evening will bring immediate effects and over a period of months a most definite improvement will result.

How to Use the Eye Chart

These exercises are to be done without eyeglasses or contacts. Do each movement for 30 seconds while in a sitting position, spine straight and do not move the head side to side. Move only the eyes.

1.) With the palm of each hand cup both closed eyes to relax them.

2.) Move the eyes clockwise around the outer circle of dots

3.) Repeat this movement in a counterclockwise rotation

4.) Move the eyes back and forth between the dots at 2 and 8 o’clock

5.) Repeat this movement back and forth between dots at 4 and 10 o’clock

6.) Blink the eyes briefly and finish therapy with the palming same as exercise #1

Repeat exercises as desired being careful to avoid strain. After beginning therapy wear eyeglasses and contacts as little as possible. In time these crutches will become unnecessary.

Would Doctor's Use Chemotherapy on Themselves? I, don't know...


Marco here. About a million studies read "that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be "life extending," yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer." And a about a million others read that "while there is no truth in the claim that doctors refuse chemotherapy on themselves, on almost every website dedicated to the promotion of alternative cancer treatments it says that most – if not all – doctors on principle would refuse chemotherapy on themselves because of yada, yada, blah, blah, blah." I guess the world will truly never know. Now, as weird and ooga booga as this may sound, I have an agreement with cancer. The agreement is that cancer and I will remain good friends, but we will never, ever never harm one another. See. That was easy.

Pop a "Squat," the right way! 

America is pooping the wrong way.

For many thousands of years, our ancestors defecated wherever they wanted; a bit like horses or dogs in this respect. If the pooper sought privacy, all he or she had to do was find a shielding bush (preferably one without thorns) and "pop a squat."

It's not the devil-may-care aspect of defecation that we should return to, of course. Modern sanitation and sewer systems have been an undeniable boon to the health of mankind. We should, however, return to the squatting position.

The body... relies on a bend between the rectum--where feces builds up--and the anus--where feces comes out. When we're standing up, the extent of this bend, called the anorectal angle, is about 90 degrees, which puts upward pressure on the rectum and keeps feces inside. 
In a squatting posture, the bend straightens out, like a kink ringed out of a garden hose, and defecation becomes easier, or so I'm told...

Read this. While I poop...

Why You Don't Sleep Like You Used to...

Is the current norm of consolidating sleep into one uninterrupted block  a social construct, primarily influenced by industrial capitalism? Could be...

Marco here. Ah, sleep: life's natural, blessed repose from the ardors of arousal. As a physiological necessity, we desire and crave it. Yet for so many Americans, sleep's caressing graces are unattainable. Modern society demands a strict schedule; rest is penciled in as an afterthought. In fact, the CDC reports that approximately 41 million Americans sleep fewer than six hours each night.

But it wasn't always this way. This is interesting. Read on...

Yes! Yes! Yes! One Simple Breathing Technique that may prolong your Life!

Marco here! Be Alive! Check this out...

In a recent six-year study conducted on over 2800 men from Copenhagen, Denmark, scientists discovered that the resting heart rate has a whole lot to do with the length of our lives. Ancient yogis knew this too, when they pointed to elephants and other large mammals with slow breathing rates and slow-beating hearts that lived to be over 100. Conversely, animals like dogs and squirrels live short lives because their hearts beat faster and their resting heart rates are often higher.

Our resting heart rate is an indication of many important vital functions in the body, including our ability to regulate important endocrine secretions to balance hormones, and also to ensure the health of the autonomic nervous system.

The typical resting heart rate (RHR) is around 60-100 beats per minute, and while exercise has shown to lower the RHR over time, the new study from Denmark is showing that despite our attempts to stay young by racking up the miles on a tread mill, a high resting heart rate can kill us sooner rather than later. Read on folks... Oh! And try the breathing technique in the video below.

The Next Flu Pandemic Fear Campaign is Quietly Evolving

They have it down to a science. The orchestrators of flu pandemic fear campaigns know precisely how much lead time they require to initiate a launch before the start of the next flu season. It turns out, that period is about seven months. This time it’s about a mutated bird flu strain called H7N9. However, there is no vaccine out for it yet and there probably won’t be because the orchestrators already have a plan in the works for what will be claimed as another mutation of a strain which there has been a vaccine in development for the past few years. Regardless, their attempts will be futile just as they were during the swine H1N1 flu fear mongering saga which made global headlines in 2009. Here’s an overview of how H7N9 has evolved so far and my prediction of what’s to come for the 2013/2014 flu season.

WTH? Ancient Aliens? We Don't Know Shitake!

What is BMI? Numerical Hocus Pocus

The first thing you need to understand is that in our twilight zone of fat hysteria, I am officially obese, okay overweight. That’s based on the Body Mass Index (BMI), a measurement that separates us into government-approved, overweight, and obese categories by taking into consideration only our height and weight. A BMI of 30 or more makes you obese, and at 5-9, 184 pounds, I have a BMI of 27.2.

According to the BMI standard, 61% of America are fat or obese. You have probably heard that number. Along with the claim that obesity costs the United States $117 billion a year and kills 300,000 USA annually, it is one of the three most commonly cited figures associated with our so-called obesity epidemic.

But it’s more like an epidemic of bad statistics. All three of these numbers are seriously flawed.

Thanks to the absurdities of the BMI yardstick, Sylvester Stallone (5-9, 228 pounds, BMI of 34) and Mel Gibson (5-9, 214 pounds, BMI of 32) are “obese.” So was Mark McGwire (6-5, 250 pounds, BMI of 30) the year he hit 70 home runs. And if politics is your thing, you’ll be interested to know that the former Governator of California (6-2, 257 pounds, BMI of 33) is obese, too.

Here’s how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains these counterintuitive results: “Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat. It may also be due to an increase in lean muscle.”

It’s not just full-blown obesity that has been bungled by numerical hocus-pocus. 39 million Americans went to sleep one night in 1998 at a government-approved weight, and woke up “overweight” the next morning, thanks to a change in the government’s definition. That group includes presently “overweight” (BMI greater than or equal to 25) movie stars like Will Smith (6-2, 210 pounds, BMI of 27) and Pierce Brosnan (6-2, 211 pounds, BMI of 27). Michael Jordan (6-6, 216 pounds, BMI of 25) and Cal Ripken Jr. (6-4, 220 pounds, BMI of 27) were also “overweight” at the height of their athletic powers.  Moreover, the standard that we abandoned in 1998 had the virtue of distinguishing between men and women–something we now do not even attempt to do.

Is this insanity or just plain bad statistics. The regularly recycled factoid that excess weight causes 300,000 deaths a year bizarrely assumes that if you die while overweight, you die because of that excess weight. As insane as it sounds, if I were to kick the bucket for any reason, my death would count toward the mythical 300,000 total.

The respected New England Journal of Medicine knows this is bogus. It maintains that the 300,000 figure “is by no means well established. Not only is it derived from weak or incomplete data, but it is also called into question by the methodologic difficulties of determining which of the many factors contribute to premature death.”

Nevertheless, this statistic finds its way into nearly every discussion of obesity–as does the spurious claim that obesity costs Americans $117 billion per year. The source of this figure: a single study published by the journal Obesity Research in 1998.

This study had serious limitations, as the authors themselves admitted. They acknowledged that their methodology resulted in the “double-counting of costs” which “would inflate the cost estimate.” There’s also this stunning admission: “We are still uncertain about the actual amount of health utilization associated with overweight and obesity. Height and weight are not included in many of the primary data sources.”

But even if they had good data to work with and somehow controlled for the double (and even triple) counting of costs, these researchers still would have reached a unrealistic conclusion. Why? They used the wrong definition of obesity.

A BMI of 30 or more makes you obese, but the authors of this study for some reason decided to set the threshold at “BMI greater than or equal to 29.” Thus they erroneously included the economic cost of individuals with a BMI between 29 and 30. A small error? Not at all. That covers more than ten million Americans, including Bruce Willis (6-0, 211 pounds, BMI of 29), Brendan Fraser (6-3, 234 lbs, BMI of 29), and George Clooney (5-11, 211 pounds, BMI of 29).

$117 billion cost. 300,000 deaths. 61 percent overweight or obese. All wrong. Unfortunately, these bad statistics are the shaky ground on which a growing number of activist groups seek to build their nutritional utopias. Gotta trust the government, right? Makes one wonder if all those vaccine stories are true...

Ask Your Doctor About Getting Off Your Ass (GOYA)

The Shocking History of Chemo

How did chemotherapy become the first option for treating cancer? Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez discusses the history of the drug, and you won't believe how it became the first option for patients. Dr. Gonzalez also talks about the so-called 'War on Cancer' and how cancer fundraisers are completely misguided in their missions.

You'll Stop Getting Sick When You Stop Making Yourself Sick!

Just FYI... "If you believe you need to take all of the pills the pharmaceutical industry says you do, you are already on drugs."
Remember, the government and the Big Pharmaceutical companies are the biggest "dealers" in the country...

Why Essential Oils Heal...

If you tell most medical doctors that essential oils bring about healing with no negative side effects, they won’t believe you. This is because in medical school, students are repeatedly told by their professors that all effective medicines have negative side effects, and if they don’t then they can’t be effective.

Drugs and oils work in opposite ways. Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify. Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Oils clean receptor sites.

Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune system. Antibiotics attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both the good and the bad. Oils attack only the harmful bacteria, allowing our body’s friendly flora to flourish.

Drugs are one-dimensional, programmed like robots to carry out certain actions in the body, whether the body can benefit from them or not. When body conditions change, drugs keep on doing what they were doing, even when their actions are no longer beneficial.

Essential oils are multi-dimensional, filled with homeostatic intelligence to restore the body to a state of healthy balance. When body conditions change, oils adapt, raising or lowering blood pressure as needed, stimulating or repressing enzyme activity as needed, energizing or relaxing as needed. Oils are smart. Drugs are dumb.

Marco here. Been way busy, so sorry this blog still sucks. Oh well. Love me anyway! OBKB...
Life expectancy at birth rose by a few years for both men and women in the last two decades of the 20th century. This has come at an enormous cost in the quality of life of our elders, for they are suffering with more pain and greater disability than ever before in last 15 years of life. People globally are living longer but chronic debilitating conditions are becoming more prevalent. What does this mean? Get your ass to the gym and start eating real food! Learn to breathe. Have great sex, even if it's by yourself. Relax. Learn yoga. Let go of all the BS in your life. Stop taking things personally. Hate nothing or no one. Hang out with your kids, grand kids, the neighbor's kids, the dog, the Wife, the Husband, do something, move, get a life, read a book, just stop bitchin' and complainin'! Life's too short to live a long nasty life. That'll be $35.00. Just fax over the ca$h. I won't spend it. Ellen! Save me...

That's how you bamboozle a planet. Keep low conscious cubicle workers distracted with celebrity nipple and sports TV programming and then if it leaks out tell them it's all for their well being and has just barely begun so there's nothing to worry about.

Chemtrails like Fluoride are being done for reasons we can only guess at. Dumbed down DNA? Climate Change? Who knows? What we do know is that the levels of heavy metals; Barium, Aluminium and others in the air has risen and that the cloud cover over the planet has changed forever. The expression get with the programme is really a joke because if you didn't notice or had dismissed the subject of Chemtrails, you were programmed already. And I bet you're sick too. Seriously, do you think I really believe this stuff? Huh? Really? Chemtrails. Cool name for a band...

Want to Get Americans Off Junk Food? Pay Them a Living Wage

Healthy food is expensive and telling people to eat organic, local food is elitist. Have you heard that argument before?

It’s true. Healthy, organic, local food is expensive. Calorie for calorie, you get more for your money at a fast food drive-thru than at a farmer’s market. And the fast food will be cooked and ready to eat, whereas you might need to take your fresh, organic produce home to cook it.

Now, you might say, that’s only a short-term calculation. Today, a $5 burger, fries, and large soda looks like a better deal than a few ounces of spinach, a handful of dried beans, and a bunch of carrots for the same price. But that overlooks the health consequences of either meal. One of these meals, if eaten regularly, will land you in the hospital someday. The other won’t.

Splenda was strategically released on April fools day in 1998. This day is reserved worldwide for hoaxes and practical jokes on friends and family, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. McNeil certainly succeeded.
The splendid Splenda hoax is costing gullible Americans $187 million annually. While many people “wonder” about the safety of Splenda they rarely question it. Despite its many “unknowns” and inherent dangers, Splenda demand has grown faster than its supply. No longer do I have to question my faith in fellow Man.

Two Reasons Not to trust the FDA. Just two?

Reason #1 More than Half of the Experts are Financially Motivated
According to USA Today, more than half of the experts hired by the FDA to advise the government on the safety and effectiveness of medicines have direct financial relationships with the pharmaceutical companies who will either be helped or hurt by FDA approval. A USA Today analysis of financial conflicts of interest shows the following, based on 159 FDA advisory committee meetings:
92% of the meetings had at least one member who had a financial conflict of interest.
At 55% of advisory meetings, at least half, sometimes more among the FDA advisers, had conflicts of interest.
At 102 meetings dealing with the fate of a given drug, 33% of the experts in attendance had a financial conflict
Historically the FDA revealed when these financial conflicts were present, but these conflicts have been kept secret since 1992.

Hey Mommy! Fever is Your Friend!

Hey Howdy Hey, Marco here! Do you run for the tylenol or motrin when fever comes calling? Why? Are you seriously afraid of "the burn?" Fever is not a bad word. It is your friend.

In fact, it’s the mechanism that the body has intuitively designed to cook off illnesses such as the flu, colds, ear infections and the like. And it serves an important purpose because it is the body’s way of curing the illness. Did you hear me? Fever is the body’s way to rid us of illness.Then why eradicate the cure by administering a synthetic drug, such as Tylenol, aspirin and the like? Certainly, we don’t want our child to suffer needlessly, but by employing meds to suppress a fever, we’re chemically forcing the body to stop treating itself with its natural promise of resolution.

What tha Hell happened to my Eggs this morning?

Marco here. Do you like eggs? Well, I do. Just not all the time. But when I eat them, I want them fresh. You ever crack one open and this nasty, evil, smelly red crap comes out? What tha hell? Did you know that in the United States, every egg carton sold in a store is required to be stamped with a number between 000 and 365. This number is the Julian Date and indicates the day of the year that the eggs were cleaned and packed into the carton. A carton stamped with 000 means the eggs were packed on January 1 and a number of 213 means they were packed on August 2.

The bottom line is that you want a date as high as possible ideally only a few days to a week from the Julian date of the day you are purchasing the eggs. Do not look at the date just to the right of the Julian Date as this is the expiration date of the eggs and could be up to six weeks after the eggs were packed!
For example, an egg carton stamped with the numbers 015 Feb 28 means that the eggs were packed on January 15 but the eggs can be sold until February 28 – a month and a half later!
Who wants six week old eggs that the store can legally sell as “fresh”? Not me!

Nasty eggs?

Ten Ways To Remove Negative Energy. Really!

Have you ever come away from a conversation with a friend feeling down, empty or alone, in spite of being in a good mood at the beginning of the discussion? Do you find that you are more concerned with the drawbacks of doing something than actually doing it? Or, does the thought of going into your office make you feel sick?  If you said yes to any of these questions, you are most likely in the presence of negativity.

Negativity is all around us and doesn’t always present itself in an obvious way. Is a matter of fact, there are three sources from which negativity usually breeds: Negativity in your relationships, negativity within yourself and negativity within your environment.  Whether you are receiving it from one or all sources, here are some things you can do to reduce the negativity in your life:

Yes, those appendages at the bottom of your legs are just like every other part of your body–they have muscles that can be improved, too. Stronger feet can help improve your stability and may help with problems like high arches and flat feet.

Rest in Peace Mr. Joe Weider

Photo: Joe Weider passed away this weekend. Probably the most influential person of all time in the health and fitness industry. He developed a lot of things we take for granted.

On Saturday, Mar. 23, the world lost Joe Weider, the creator of the bodybuilding empire that founded Arnold Schwarzenegger, after he died from heart failure. At 93, Joe Weider sadly passed away on Saturday, but the world is not yet moving on. Celebrities have begun tweeting their sadness and condolences to the king of bodybuilding. It all began with an official statement from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Joe Weider created a full empire; he created dietary supplements, competitive muscle-building contests and several muscle magazines – Muscle and Fitness, Flex, Men’s Fitness and Shape.

Even though he’s passed away, he will be remembered for not all the great things he did, but all the great people he influenced.

Joe Weider, RIP
