What’s the difference between GMO and hybridized grains? One of the most important ways I educate, in blogging, authoring books, and public speaking, is to point out how billion-dollar industries have falsely educated us, to make a profit. About nutrition, medicine, and health. If you want the quick abstract of this article, scroll to the […]

Are nutritionists and dieticians sleeping with the enemy?

I often talk about how our health care system, and our food system (Big Pharma and Big Food), are Enemies #1 and #2 we have to ward against, if we want to protect our health. Once I wrote about attending a women’s retreat where a nutritionist taught a class and told mothers that their #1 […]
