If You Are In The 99% And Have Low Control, This Is How Stress Affects Your Health  "More and more evidence is available that tells us that what we eat – an industrial diet – is a major cause of the chronic health epidemic. But what is less known is the affect of social inequality and so lack of control. With so much power concentrated in so few hands today, this issue of lack of control is a major driver of stress and so is a major driver of our health epidemic."Rob Paterson, The Missing Human Manual

Manly And Organic Are NOT Contradictions In Terms    "Ponder this: up until 1960 everyone ate organic because that’s all there was. In the late 50s and early 60s agricultural conglomerates were created to service a new American phenomenon: the chain supermarket. By raising animals in captivity (in concentration camp conditions) the price of meat plummeted. By shipping fruits and vegetables long distances fruits and vegetables normally only available at certain times of the year became available year round. By "farming" seafood the prices dropped and year round availability became commonplace. From a pricing and availability standpoint, supermarkets were a godsend; the downside was the inferiority of the products."Marty Gallagher for Dragon Door
