PlantPure Nation Premiere today in Hollywood

PlantPure Nation Premiere today in Hollywood

Today marks the premiere of another hopefully HUGE movie which we would like you to be aware of and support. The new film is entitled PlantPure Nation and is coming from the producer and writer of Forks Over Knives with Dr. T. Colin Campbell Co-Author of The China Study. The offical launch is scheduled for Independance day, July 4, 2015. This movie in a nutshell attempts to answer the question "Why doesn't everybody know about the power of a plant-based diet?". Some of the answers may astound you. Some may enrage you. And, they will certainly engage you!  The story of Plant-Pure Nation centers on some political initiatives in Kentucky.

Fad Diets Part 2

Fad Diets Part 2
The previous Fad Diets post did not answer what is not a fad diet.  Instead, the post was to point out how fad diets are not only possible, but almost impossible to avoid.  It was to point out how deeply diluted truth and reality is by all the noise of opinion, false associations and cascading strings of if-then assumptions taken as fact.

Fad Diets

Fad Diets
There are countless diets inundating our society and they are all wildly different - most are polar opposites; some heavily promote a certain food while others say to never eat that food.  They all have an identifying trade name such as; Adkins, 80-10-10, South Beach, McDougall, Mediterranean, Engine 2, Paleo and so, so many more.  Over 700 different diets are listed at www.everydiet.org, and I’m sure there are even more because I am aware of a few that are not on the list.  Each of these diets claims a method by which the diet works and how it is beneficial.  There are even scientific studies that support the diet claims.  What’s interesting is that many of the stu...
