Bread and Circus, or read my new book

The Romans figured it out: to govern a vast Empire made up of different tribes and restless people they only needed to provide them with plenty of "Panem et Circum," Bread and Circus, or cheap food and cheap entertainment.

Sounds familiar?

You could lay back, grab a diet coke, a few twinkies and some M&Ms (they are back!) and surf the Net (don't dive too deep!) in search of The Lohan's latest misadventure, or...

Get a digital copy (soon in paperback format) of my new book "Gut Health: an Integrative Light Metabolic Approach to Optimize Your Health."

True, it is a little deep, redolent with cutting edge science, but, then you would be honoring another Roman maxim, "Salut Populi Suprema Lex," or The Health of the People is the Supreme Law of the Land."

Monsanto, GMOs and Fascism

Recently, President Obama signed HR 933 which contained a line item he was powerless to veto. Said “line” was written by Monsanto itself. It basically states that Monsanto cannot be sued in the future IF we discover that GMO products were harmful after all.

Many countries, for example, the European Union, have already determined that GMO products are not safe.

Monsanto had its hired minions endorse the bill as if it was their own, much like most pharmaceutical research is written by “ghosts” from its own ranks, only to be endorsed as their own research by well compensated “independent researchers.”
What happened to the government elected by the people, for the people and of the people? If it is not dead, it is comatose. What we have now is government of corporations, for corporations and of corporations. This, my friends, is the definition of Fascism. Since this ugly word connotes the likes of Hitler and Mussolini, you may think I am being too harsh. Perhaps; I only wish to point out that our health is not the supreme law of the land. Profit is.

Down with Housecleaning!

I know; we all need to pitch in and carry our load. But, an article just appeared in the Journal Scientific American in April saying that “Men Who Do More Housework Have Less Sex.”

Ummmhhhh…. Food for thought.
I am not going to speculate why this might be the case, assuming that the article is accurate. I leave that up to you to discuss, dissect and argue about within the confines of your home, and/or bedroom.
As for me and my people, we may hire outside help to clean the house….
P.S. This is a blog about health, really.
