Water v Coke

I don’t know how true/accurate all this is, but I found it an interesting read…


1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the worlds population)

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%.

4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

5. Lack of water is the primary trigger of daytime fatigue.

6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

This is a truly excellent short film from Rob Pearlstein called “Our Time Is Up”.

it’s just over 14 minutes long and it’ll seem a lot shorter, it’s that good…

you’ll probably also recognise quite a few of the faces in it.

Is there a big cover up in the US health care market?

James Sheridan thinks there is and he’s written about it in a book called The Pandora Prescription.

I’ve not got a copy yet as it’s not on, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for it as it looks like a VERY INTERESTING read.

I reckon it’s going to be one of hose books that generates a lot of controversy and “Buzz” as they say in the marketing world.

The author even claims that the book hs only been released in major bookstores after tens of thousands of people signed a petition to get make it happen.

Whilst I do try to eat healthy food (fresh, Organic etc.) I do have a couple of bad habbits, like drinking too much and smoking when I’m drinking, so I’ve spent some of my time on the net looking in to ways of limiting the damage I do to my body from my “vices” and it occured to me that rather than just sitting here and eating an apple, I could eat my apple and share a few of the best Health Bits I’ve come across.

Obviously I’m not a Medical Professional, so this is just my opinion and not medical advice, go see a Doctor for “Professional” advice..
