When the number of people that are being diagnosed with Cancer and opting out of treatment continues to rise, then we need to take note. They are not opting out because of some “magic bullet cure”. For the majority has no knowledge of any treatment except the conventional treatment of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. It is the fear of these treatments and the eventual outcome that has cancer victims opting out. For it is historical knowledge from 60 plus years of these treatments that is fueling the new “opting out” option.

A man with a grey locks is considered distinguished and wise but when a woman goes grey she is accused of letting herself go. In the 1950’s less than 10% of the woman dyed their hair. Today, the number is a staggering 75% or more. This popular beauty habit can cost consumers $75-$200 every 6-8 weeks when having it done professionally. Your first grey hair will typically appear by the age of 34 and by age 50 up to 50% of all Caucasians will have a full head of grey hair. Smoking, poor diet, stress and genetics can all contribute to premature greying. Dying can be Deadly: Some chemicals used in hair dye products are known to be carcinogenic. A 6-year study at Yale University has found that women who have spent years coloring their hair do indeed run a greater risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system that claims about half of all its victims.

My quest to find the best of the best dark chocolate started long, long ago. Being vegan and adverse to GMOs, I was hard pressed to find something I could eat and relish. I thought my quest had been answered back in the early to mid 90’s when I travelled “down under” with a bunch of guys making a martial arts movie. On the Gold Coast of Australia, in Surfer’s Paradise, there was a store called, “Chocolate to Die For”. Thinking my dream came true I went in. The chocolate was dark and rich and the smell was overwhelming. After tasting a piece I asked what the ingredients were. At first the answer was, “It’s a chocolate to die for mate”. After some persistence I was given a sheet of paper with the ingredients. Everything looked good until I got to the lecithin. Same ol’ crap but in a different country. What a horror it was not being able to eat dark chocolate for about four years. When I got back to Honolulu I fell into the … [Read more...] about A dark chocolate to die for
I ran across an article the other day that listed the toxic chemicals used in commercial make up. It’s something most of us women don’t give much thought too. We get up in the morning, take a shower, get dressed and put on our make up. It’s automatic – second nature, just part of our morning ritual… But this article left me wondering… Are we dying to be beautiful? Many of us give a lot of thought to what we put in our bodies, buying organic produce and grass fed meats. We make sure we drink clean water and take our vitamins. But how many of us give that kind of consideration to what we put on our bodies? A few months back I had cleaned out my home of all animal tested products making note of what not to buy again and suitable replacement items from animal friendly companies. This was good progress, but it seems we need to go further. Many of the chemicals and compounds that are approved by the FDA are in fact still toxic. These chemicals are not … [Read more...] about Are We Dying To Be Beautiful?
President Obama gave a nationally televised address back in 2009 to “clarify any misunderstandings” about his health care proposal assuring Americans that under the new bill senior citizens, and not the federal government, will have the right to choose how they are executed. “Let me dispel these ridiculous rumors once and for all and set the record straight. Under my plan, seniors are going to be killed the way they want to be killed, end of story”, said the president, who acknowledged that “wiping out” the nation’s elderly population has always been his No. 1 priority. “If your grandmother would rather be euthanized in the privacy of her own home than be gutted and hanged on a high school soccer field, she is entitled to that right.” “Once again, let me be perfectly clear,” Obama continued. “Seniors, rest easy knowing that I will never, under any circumstance, sign a bill that doesn’t give you the option … [Read more...] about Obamacare: Clarifying How Seniors Die (Satire)
