…to where she is now, which is, inspiring a lot of people towards better health, and getting that ultimate "Hard-Body".

My Top 10 Myths and Falsehoods they Hardwired and Programmed into People’s Brains About Cancer (Part 2)

This is part 2 of the 20 item great list I ran across on,  which I had to post because I am in TOTAL agreement to their perspective on how the public has been brainwashed about how to look at cancer.

Hardwired Myth #20)   Cancer is an "enemy" that has "invaded" your body, and it should be eliminated by attacking the body with chemical weapons.

TRUTH: Cancer is actually just your body's own cells multiplying out of control. It's not something you "catch" or something that "infects" your body. Modern medicine's makes a huge mistake in treating cancer like an infectious disease, bombarding the body with chemicals to try to eradicate the cancer. But the cancer is your body's own cells gone haywire, so to kill the cancer, they have to very nearly kill YOU at the same time!



Health and Safety Tips When Deciding to Get a Tattoo

If getting a tattoo is still a sign of rebellion, then a lot of Americans are rebels: 29% of adults now have at least one tattoo, up from 21% in 2012 and 16% in 2003, a recent Harris Poll found.

Millennials are especially tat-happy: 47% of people ages 18 to 35 are inked, according to the poll. But that increase in popularity has occurred despite what some doctors say are under-appreciated and understudied risks.

Food for Thought: “A Brand New Ending” (….. a.k.a., “the most inspiring 5 minutes I ever spent on the Internet” !!!)

No exaggeration, my most inspiring 5 minutes on the internet…….

I heard this amazing 5 minute video by one who calls himself Prince Ea, and I'm still "intoxicated" by his words, Prince Ea is a poet, rapper, humanitarian, an amongst other things, an Anthropology Major who graduated at the top of his class (..the kid kinda reminds me of me :) ).



My Top 10 Myths and Falsehoods they Hardwired and Programmed into People’s Brains About Cancer (Part 1)

This is a great list I ran across on,  which I had to post because I am in TOTAL agreement to their perspective on how the public has been brainwashed about how to look at cancer.

Hardwired Myth #10) Cancer is caused by spontaneous bad luck, not cause and effect.

TRUTH: Cancer always has a cause. There is no such thing as "spontaneous" cancer without cause, and the cancer doctors who claim such phenomena exist are practicing nothing but "cancer voodoo" or pushing anti-science "disease magic" rooted in mysticism rather than reality.

Taking my Bi-monthly break from my left-brained, "egghead" nutrition and health science, keeping myself balanced with that other side of my brain I love so much (as I'm sure is quite obvious :) )

The New [Superfood] Kids on the Block (Part 4): Camu Camu

I don't think vitamin supplementation is necessary when you find the right whole food nutrient sources.

Camu Camu, being very high in Vitamin C, eliminates the need for Vitamin C supplements, which is especially important, because most Vitamin C supplements are now made from GMO corn :(

Wheatgrass for a Healthy Living

…..a guest post, by Jenny Travens of

The growing popularity of wheatgrass in recent times signifies a greater than before confidence in the wonder-wheat plant.  The nutrient-rich food offers enormous health benefits which contribute toward its wide-spread usage and marked visibility across varied demographics.

The availability of wheatgrass, some time ago, was in a tight spot, but not now. Its advent to human health and fitness has largely driven manufacturers to ensure it is easily available, and in a variety of forms, via different sales channels.

They extensively scrutinized the clinical and laboratory data for foods that have a high chance of an anti-cancer effect.

Among health-conscious women, the toxicity of mainstream tampons has long been an issue.
