Imagine a circle. In that circle lies the circumference of your knowledge. All that you know, of course, isn’t all there is to know! New thoughts, ideas, innovations are born everyday. When you fail to recognize, investigate or embrace these new thoughts & ideas, solely based upon the fact that they rest outside your circle of knowledge, you lose the gift of wisdom that you would have undoubtedly gained by allowing the circumference of your knowledge to expand.
Fortunately for us, history has recorded numerous instances, were great thinkers dared to be visionary’s and think outside the box. In particular , when it came to advancements in the field of health, nutrition & the medical sciences, physicians such as:
-Andreas Vesalius (often referred to as the founder of modern human anatomy) for his advancements on the human body.
-William Harvey for discovering that blood was pumped by the heart and moved around the body through Arteries.
-Ignaz Semmelweis for requiring his maternity staff to wash there hands.
-Surgeon James Lind , explorer James cook & physician Gilbert Blane for their discovery on how to cure scurvy.
All were Ridiculed & labeled quack’s during the advancement of there discovery’s . These brilliant physicians dared to go against the standard medical practices of their day, championed the cause for what they believed in and were ultimately proved correct in there new methodology’s in medicine.

Tofu, Soy milk , Soy Protein shake lover’s… Here’s your public service announcement!!
by MARCO TORRES
If we analyze the food guide and government advice on nutrition over a decade ago and compare those advisements to what is recommended today, there is one big difference–one specific food crept up onto the radar of public health officials as if it had some kind of miraculous nutritional benefit for the public. The problem is, [most] of this food is genetically modified, contains toxic phytochemicals and is linked to digestive distress, immune system breakdown, allergies, ADD and ADHD, higher risk of heart disease and cancer, malnutrition, and loss of libido. Yet, governments seem to think that’s not a problem.
You’ve probably already figured out that the food is soy.
I’ll get to how deadly soy is shortly, but first let’s backtrack to the year 2000 and analyze the food guides of two countries, namely Canada and The United States.
The waybackmachine is a beautiful tool that can show us exactly what a website looked like in the past. So if we plug in both the USDA and Health Canada websites in the year 2000 at about the same period, we can see exactly how each publicly funded message translated to each respective food guide or pyramid.
In the Year 2000
On the Health Canada website, there was absolutely no mention of soy at all. Under milk products, the main message was to choose lower-fat milk products more often. Most people had no idea back then how toxic pasteurized milk was, so it was heavily consumed, much more than it is today. There are currently huge debates throughout the internet as to why humans are drinking milk at all.
On the USDA website on either the Milk, Yogurt & Cheese page or the main page illustrating the Food Guide Pyramid, there is again no mention of soy. The recommendation was also low dairy.
So what happened? Continue reading
Here’s an Interesting article I read today. Check it out then tell me, If this “I can’t call it chicken” really is finger licking good?
Tastes Like Chicken
Claim: KFC no longer use the word ‘chicken’ to describe its product because it serves meat from genetically engineered animals that the government will no longer permit them refer to as ‘chicken.’
[Collected via e-mail, 1999]
KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts.
First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name? Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the “FRIED” food issue. It’s not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again. Continue reading
