The Macca's burger bit is interesting - backs up the fact that you can leave a tub of margarine out in the open and nothing will grow on it, or go near it as it is, chemically, one molecule from being tupperware...PLASTIC! I assume Macca's burgers are similar.....

Happy Holidays Written by Doug Kaufmann

My gift to all of you is the life changing and lifesaving knowledge this newsletter has imparted to you in 2012. I know that sounds trite and even a bit narcissistic, but I don’t mean for it to be. Knowledge is power. However, far too often in the healthcare world, we get information, but not knowledge. Why? I believe it is because the facts regarding the cause of illness and diseases are obstructed by the American model of heath care.
It is one that is working tremendously for the economy, but not for we, the people. To me, it is really this simple; if you own a $400,000 business, you want more than anything for it to become a $500,000 business, and you’ll do anything in your power to accomplish that. That same quest exists in medicine today.
Healthcare is currently a $3,000,000,000,000 ($3 trillion) annual (12 months) business. Like any business, it wants to grow. As a matter of fact, optimistic prognosticators are convinced that it will become a $300,000,000,000 business within the next 5 years.

Stop Feeding Into Guilt, A Useless Emotion « The Butterfly Maiden Project

Stop Feeding Into Guilt, A Useless Emotion « The Butterfly Maiden Project | Wellness Life | Scoop.it

I remember with crystal clear clarity (not to mention joy and gratitude) the year I quit guilt. I gave it up cold turkey. And my life changed drastically. Years of beating myself up for my shortcomings, mistakes, and failures were erased in the moment I fully understood just how useless guilt is.


What IS Guilt?
Guilt is an emotion that occurs when a person believes that they have violated a moral standard.”

 

To understand where your guilt comes from, you must first revisit your personal values and core beliefs. You may be holding on to outdated programs that no longer serve you as an adult. You may be giving your power away to a belief system that no longer applies to your life. You need to identify who and what defined the moral standards you believe apply to you, as well as what constitutes a violation.

Why Cut Processed Food - 100 Days of Real Food | Wellness Life | Scoop.it

Processed foods are an illusion, often appearing to be healthy (with claims like low fat, low carb, vitamin fortified, no trans fat, contains omega-3s, etc.) when these foods are in fact the very thing making a lot of Americans unhealthy, sick, and fat.Coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer – four of the top ten chronic diseases that kill most of us – “can be traced directly to the industrialization of our food” according to Michael Pollan.Making smarter (and sometimes more expensive) food choices now may reduce your healthcare costs later in life.

Geek Pi's curator insight, December 12, 2012 4:06 PM

For years, Star Trek fans and medical professionals have dreamed of having a handheld device that could quickly and accurately assess a person's health status, and there are even foundations who offer prizes to the first person or company to come up with one.  This is the first of its kind, and I'm impressed by its capabilities.  It uses technologies like sound and light sensors and complex math to provide real-time data on a person's health, in a way that the average person can understand. 

 

Medical science has rarely been depicted as understandable, and affordable home technology as very "up-to-date."  But I'm willing to bet this will be the device of the century.  It combines so many technological advances of modern science and answers so many shortcomings of modern medicine that I believe it will challenge primary healthcare providers (family doctors, for instance) to prove their worth and justify their work in ways that could lead to even greater medical advances in the coming years.  Devices such as the Nike FuelBand and the FitBit Ultra have been paving the way for personal healthcare responsibility for the past few years, and now it's time for another leap forward.

 

Of course, any technology or device could be a flop, but if this succeeds, or even if it does not, many will follow it that improve upon its basic premise: responsible healthcare should begin at home, with each individual using effective, affordable tools to monitor their body's condition on a daily basis and use that data to effect a healthier lifestyle.
