Here is a  video's on how to cure diabetes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjUdtK6ukqY

Dr. You Tube strikes again.  ::)

Actually, all of the people on those two video's are Medical Doctors with good credentials and good reputations..  

 People used to think taking their picture would steal their souls. Technology marches on. Sometimes is it better to watch a person explain his idea's rather than to just read about it.  

Lies.  I skipped through this video attentively while it was on mute and no "doctor" in the video had on a white lab coat.  I only trust doctors with white lab coats (the longer the better).  Therefore, I do not trust what this video says.  Ergo, bring on the sugar.  Some random website said the average person in the US eats approximately 150 pounds of sugar a year.  I need to catch up.  It's almost September.

Enter into the Glory of Darwin's waiting room



If he has root beer in that Double Gulp cup, I'm on board.  I'd rather not be an ape.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Meet the REAL thing:


Sorry, no root beer, but probably some coke or something equally the real thing  ;D.

Yeah, dying is great. I forgot.  :-[

You forgot??  Must not be eating enough ancestral greens  ;D.  Anyway, it happens to the best of us.  Dying, that is.  :(

If I were in Florida (which hopefully will never happen--nothing personal, mind you), I'd buy you a good ancestral beer or two.

For me the issue isnt so much about dying as it is debilitation over a long stretch of time. People are not all the way well one day and then all the way sick the next. And few people simple drop dead like a sack of potato's ( pun intended) anymore. If you had a stroke not that long ago you were a dead man, now they can pull you back. In fact, there is a long list of things that used to kill us quick that they now can pull us back from. But often when they pull us back, we are permanently impaired.

The cost of taking care of someone who is losing functionality is staggering. You can spend all of you resources and maybe leave your spouse in a really tough financial spot after you have sucked all the money out of your savings and assets. Plus the burden on your family taking care of your sorry butt can tear them apart emotionally and physically. That is not even to mention how difficult it can be for you as you lose your ability to do the things you like or need to do.

The bigger issue is Morbidity ( rate of chronic debilitation) not Mortality ( rate of death) so much. The consequences for the economy are very scary if we continue on like this. As the baby boomers age and they get sicker and sicker due to horrible nutrition and some other things it can potentially break the economy.

Over 60% of both the American and British populations are now overweight or obese. This is a serious issue.

Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

You really must stop being so serious, you know.  The solution is in the syringe.

You are most correct.  The issue at hand is what the solvent could be.

Precisely.  Now, 0.25ml of nonsense, t.i.d., as a bare minimum, in a solvent of one's choosing will keep all the nasties away.  Trust me.  I'm not a doctor.

Dr. Bobo is a philologist.  Bananas only work for lice when you rub them into the affected area.  Otherwise, you're just getting extra potassium which will unbalance your electrolytes.  Trust me...I'm...well, never mind about me.

Little bit of everything tbh: Tacos, spaghetti, fried chicken, chorizo, fast-food. Basically whatever my parents decide to give me.

Tacos??  You said.........TACOS??  Fish tacos?  Horse tacos?  Clam tacos?  This is important, JamesR....


Usually, when one is still living at home and being cooked for by one's parents, it's a good idea to graciously and thankfully accept what they provide for you.  Hopefully, though, they will be open to requests...

Ground beef tacos.

My parents are pretty open about suggestions for food. I always help out by doing the dishes and occasionally attempting to cook my own unique meal for the family. I enjoy seafood very much, but my family doesn't care for it really at all.

Do you ever get anything that's green and leafy?   Or of the cruciferous family?  (Not referring to gigantic mold here, either  ;D.)

Agreed!!  They're an acquired taste for those of us who would be food for others.  (Soylent Green, anyone?? ;D)

Try a more dense cut of fish like swordfish if you have not already.. It does not smell up the kitchen and pretty much looks like a slab of meat on the plate. Very nutrient dense and very tasty... Cook with coconut oil in the pan. Top with lemon juice.

Make sure you remove the sword, first, though.  They have a tendency to get stuck between one's teeth.  ;D

Funny..........and sorta kinda true.

Plant food during the Paleolithic era the epoch when we evolved into our present genetic make up,  were more toxic to humans then they are now. They had to have been cooked well to be useful. Pottery is no more than 7,000 years old, so plants played a more minor role in our ancestral diet than people imagine.

Today, in our depleted condition we should certainly eat some plant food, well cooked because they still retain some protective toxins ( to be kept from being eaten). When you cook plants they still retain nutrients but you cook off enzymes. These can easily be replaced by including some fermented foods like sour kraut or kim chee in you diet.

Here is a lecture by Dr. Georgia Ede on the pros and cons of eating plants...

What are you eating?

Little bit of everything tbh: Tacos, spaghetti, fried chicken, chorizo, fast-food. Basically whatever my parents decide to give me.

Tacos??  You said.........TACOS??  Fish tacos?  Horse tacos?  Clam tacos?  This is important, JamesR....


Usually, when one is still living at home and being cooked for by one's parents, it's a good idea to graciously and thankfully accept what they provide for you.  Hopefully, though, they will be open to requests...

Ground beef tacos.

My parents are pretty open about suggestions for food. I always help out by doing the dishes and occasionally attempting to cook my own unique meal for the family. I enjoy seafood very much, but my family doesn't care for it really at all.

Do you ever get anything that's green and leafy?   Or of the cruciferous family?  (Not referring to gigantic mold here, either  ;D.)

Greens are not food. Greens are what food eats. ;)

Funny..........and sorta kinda true.

Plant food during the Paleolithic era the epoch when we evolved into our present genetic make up,  were more toxic to humans then they are now. They had to have been cooked well to be useful. Pottery is no more than 7,000 years old, so plants played a more minor role in our ancestral diet than people imagine.

Today, in our depleted condition we should certainly eat some plant food, well cooked because they still retain some protective toxins ( to be kept from being eaten). When you cook plants they still retain nutrients but you cook off enzymes. These can easily be replaced by including some fermented foods like sour kraut or kim chee in you diet.

Here is a lecture by Dr. Georgia Ede on the pros and cons of eating plants...

So, no potted plants then, huh?
Again with "doctors."  No lab coat and a woman! ::)  My take on this is to only eat horse.

Try a more dense cut of fish like swordfish if you have not already.. It does not smell up the kitchen and pretty much looks like a slab of meat on the plate. Very nutrient dense and very tasty... Cook with coconut oil in the pan. Top with lemon juice.

From a reputable fishmonger, please.  Otherwise, you'll get a swordfish steak full of seaworms.

Oh good.. What are Seaworms? .... Never mind don't tell me. It's best that I don't know
Nickname for parasites that all fish have.  Catfish and swordfish are the ones that you have to watch out for, as it's more common for them to have growing parasites..  The older the fish, the bigger the parasites; so much so that you can see them.  Cooking will kill them, but they won't taste good.  A reputable fishmonger will be able to tell you if the fish are young or old.  And not sell you garbage.

Nope. :) I'm glad not to live in New England either, by the accounts of local friends. With clam chowder being everywhere and stuff.

Yup..Pretty much.. She rides the damn things and seems to like them very much.

I intend to try goat meat after the Dormition Fast ends tomorrow. The problem is that the only place I know to get it is at the local Muslim butcher..

Sprinkle liberally with holy water, smoke with incense, broil one hour.

The terrorists win...haven't you heard?  This is pretty much the case, except independent butchers.  Regular/Kosher/Halal should all be able to get goat readily.  Besides incense (smoked meat ;D) how are you going to prepare it?  Goat fricaseed is good.

Moroccan earwax goes especially well with fricasseed goat--even better than with horse.  Better than almost any other kind, as far as my experience informs me.

Don't disregard Tunisian earwax, my friend.  But if we go with the oenological approach of terroir it's important to match the ingredients (or the dish style) with the earwax.  So, say the goat is going to be prepared in a Jamaican-style goat curry; it's important to get Jamaican earwax to complement the dish.  Same as you wouldn't put Italian extra virgin olive oil in New England clam chowder or soy sauce in a bouillabaisse.  Any Caribbean earwax could work, but Jamaican (organic and gently fracked from virgin ears goes without saying) would be best for this example.
