    “All You Have To Do To Lose Weight. Turn Fat Into CO2 & H2O

    Just ran across this TEDx vid on YouTube. It started out sounding like it could be a very Peat-like explanation to fat loss. However, the final take was “move more, eat less and breath”. Are there nuggets to take away from this? He says the #1 question he gets is “can we just sit around and...

    Honey Gets Much Better Results Than Sucrose

    I’ve seen a lot of talk here about using refined table sugar and pop to help increase sugar intake.

    Personalized Diets Based On DNA/genome Analysis Are A Failure

    I am sure by now everybody has heard of the much-heralded approach of the so-called "personalized medicine" - a world in which every person will be treated uniquely based on the complete analysis of their genome/DNA. From specific drugs and dosage, to interventions like radiation, diet and...
