Don’t be Fooled Again — Keep Taking Nutritional Supplements

Mainstream media outlets such as The Today Show were abuzz this morning due to a new editorial published in this week's Annals of Internal Medicine entitled "Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements". The editorial was based on three studies that just concluded looking at the effects of multivitamins on preventing heart attacks and cancer, as well as improving [...]

The Evolution of Organics

There was a time when deciding to eat all organic drew a deep line in the sand between you and the small group you hung out with and "everyone else". For the last 20 years we've talked about this more than a lot. They watch TV, listen to Top 40 radio, follow sports, believe they're either a Democrat or a [...]

James Gandolfini and the 8 Foods We Eat in America That Are Banned in Other Countries

The news that Sopranos actor James Gandolfini had died on Wednesday hit most Americans with at least a little surprise. Death does that. It's so permanent. As sad as the event is to some, if not everyone, (especially those close to the man one assumes), there was an odd sense of something uncannily not surprising about it. (I only [...]

One Battle Out of Many Abated

It's 3:30 am. Slightly more than the usual insomnia. So rather than "writing" -- that sacred act once studied and revered of sitting down to participate in the art and craft of honing one's ideas with the written word into something potentially coherent, permanent and hopefully even beautiful and admired for all the world to see for an eternity, something [...]

Motion Sickness

Dear Kristen, Sorry to hear about your little one's motion sickness. I have NO idea how on earth you heard that I have it -- talk about the end of privacy in the modern age! -- but you're right. I do. And no, I don't mind taking a few minutes to share how we handle it. You are right, I am [...]

Herbs and Nutrients for men’s sexual health

For the record (skip this if you are easily offended by such content) I began experimenting with herbs and nutrients aimed specifically for men, or for men's sexual health. And for sexual health and libido in general. Don't ask me why, because I'm too young to need them that's for sure but I was just curious and wanted to check [...]

Still in awe over the church experience

Still in awe over that church experience. There is this antibiotic that the doctor has me on called leviquin. This is the fourth night in the row I have experienced this. it is now 3:21 am and I am wide awake. If you take it before bed you will at some point become aware during your sleep that you are sleeping [...]

I know I said no more smart pills, but I couldn’t help it. had been a while. I had spent a lot of time studying these two nutrients the last [...]

Ignorance is bliss

Went to the Internet movie database, as one often does when needing a bit more data, to read what others have said about la dolce vita so I could perhaps gain a keener appreciation of the film. many people have it actually placed on their top ten or top five lists. Best movie lists are impossible of course but [...]

On fire!

Working out tonight after a full fucking day I was just rocking like lightening. On fire. Ideas shooting out of my brain. Twenty minutes of cardio, then about a half hour of weights, and then I put on some gloves and hit the bag and practiced jabs and cross for a while till I was just totally fatigued. Boxing is [...]

Healthy Living

Went to visit the Coon’s mom, Aldine, today with Juliet. I felt that they would get a lot out of meeting. And I wanted to pay my respects. She now lives in Eugene, Oregon! Hadn't seen her in about ten years. So beautiful and still so smart and curious about everything. she still has all the latest knowledge at her [...]

Master of Self

In order to get stronger you have to continuously lift weights that are heavier than what you normally are accustomed to lifting. One week you cannot even think about curling fifty pounds. Two weeks later you are curling fifty-five. You just got stronger baby. And more toned. Lucky you. Deep realizations lately on this concept of challenging myself to do [...]
