Meat Culture

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Here’s a pretty standard example of meat culture: Roughly 99.9% of the meat sold in the USA comes from factory farms like those shown in the video. So for a meat eater, supporting the above is normal and routine. Lacto-ovo vegetarians also support some aspects of the above. For the sake of comparison, here’s a […]

Maybe I’m the One Who’s Crazy Nutso

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

I’ve been receiving more feedback than usual about my last two articles, much of it pretty long and most of it sent privately. People have been encouraging me to share more along these lines. I think what they mean is that they’d like to see me share more about my own private thoughts and feelings, even […]

Which Politicians Are Sellouts on Food Safety?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

How do you know which U.S. politicians are voting against your best interests on food safety issues, thereby reducing the overall quality, nutrition, and healthfulness of the U.S. food supply? And how can you tell which politicians are actually voting to protect our food supply, helping to pass laws to improve quality and safety standards? As it […]

Help Us Transform the Medical and Food Industries

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

In 2010 the USA spent $444 billion treating heart disease, which is the #1 killer of Americans. About 1 in 3 Americans has some form of cardiovascular disease right now. Close to a million Americans will have a heart attack this year. About 25% of the time, the first observed symptom of heart disease is sudden death. […]

Your Uncommon Diet Is a Social Advantage

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

I find it ironic (and mildly stupid) when people feel they’re at a social disadvantage if they eat differently from everyone else in a social situation, as if they have to conform to fit in. No, conformity puts you at an enormous social disadvantage. Being different is a godsend. Eating differently can enhance your social […]

Food Revolution Summit – Free Online Event

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

When I was a kid and my Mom would take my siblings and me to the local shopping mall, she’d bribe us with an offer of an ice cream cone from Baskin-Robbins if we’d behave ourselves. So if we acted like monkeys in the stores, we wouldn’t get any ice cream on the way back […]

FitDesk Review

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

In addition to evaluating the GeekDesk, I also recently tested another piece of equipment to make office work more active. Called the FitDesk, it’s a small but functional workspace mounted atop a stationary exercise bike. So you can burn calories pedaling while you work on your laptop or tablet, watch TV, or play video games. […]

Dancing with Raw

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I went back to eating 100% raw again last week (being going a little over a week so far). I found the transition pretty easy this time. Since I’ve dabbled in eating raw quite a bit, including going for 6 months at one stretch, I find it pretty easy to reload the associated habits, such as […]
