Brilliant and scorching documentary: That Sugar Film

by allthoughtswork

Finally found this online for free (at least in the U.S.). Anyone who eats food should watch this, twice.

It’s rife with British celebrity cameos, eye-rolling humor, engaging special effects, and the most mind-blowing game of sugary hide-and-go-seek you’ll ever play in the natural foods section of your grocery store. Dude eat’s “health food” and blows up like an American in a matter of months.

And the sweet stuff is just the tip of the death iceberg….

Annoying interviewer is the female version of Piers Morgan

by allthoughtswork

Is this an interview or a stoning? Every time I hear that forceful, self-important inhale of hers, I know she’s gearing up to take another whack.  This is one of the most sloped-foreheaded, uninformed, unempathetic women I’ve ever witnessed. Besides evangelists, I mean.

Come to think of it, she’s probably one of the traumatized children he’s talking about it. She sounds triggered. Hmm.

Gabor Maté is a sage. His approach to addiction and mental health removes the sting and stigma while simultaneously empowering the sufferer–let’s see religion or Prozac do that. I’ll wager my house she’s intimately acquainted with both.

“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.”

The sugar industry? Not so sweet

by allthoughtswork

Regulated, my ass. The sugar industry is just a legalized cocaine cartel allowed to market to children. Makin’ America great again.

PS: Those fruit smoothies you’re slurping down aren’t the Get Out of Jail Free Cards you think they are, they’re actually worse. Your liver has approved this message.

This Is What A Cleaned Heart Looks Like

When you wash away all the donor cells, you’re left with a protein scaffold called a ghost heart. Now, it’s ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart – one that won’t be rejected – can be grown.
