Our Brains Are Shrinking

We humans are very proud and fond of our large and complex brains. We perceive ourselves as a lot more intelligent than other organisms here on Earth. Some people, including many creationists, would probably go as far as to say that we tower above all other organisms, seeing as we have a unique ability to […]

I’m a Nutritionist. I Wholeheartedly Support Pete Evans

Chef Pete Evans, one of the hosts of the popular TV show My Kitchen Rules (MKR), is under fire. He has been for quite a while. The Dietitians Association of Australia (ADA), journalists, and some medical doctors are lashing out against him, bashing his ideas about nutrition and healthy living. They use every weapon they […]

Medicine Without Evolution is Like Legs Without Feet

Not so long ago I put up an article here on the site entitled Darwin is at the Door Knocking. Will Mainstream Medicine Soon Let Him In?.

In that post I made the case that the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the organization that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife founded together, is built on a flawed premise. Mark Zuckerberg […]

Your Microbiome Controls Your Life

Are you in complete control of your life? Take a moment and think about this question. If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll find that you’re left with no other choice than to acknowledge that you’re not in complete control of your life.

The 5 D’s of Modern Health Care

Over the past decade I’ve spent a significant amount of time reading medical research and thinking about medical-related health problems. One of the things this process has shown me is that our health care system is, by and large, a failure. By definition, the primary job of any health care system is to care for […]

How to Use Fermented Vegetables to Repair a Damaged Microbiome

One of the main recommendations of the microbiome restoration plan is to occasionally consume small quantities of a diversity of fermented vegetables. In the past, I’ve talked at length about the pros and cons of using various probiotic products, and I’ve looked into many of the biological mechanisms that are relevant with respects to how […]
