Will Tuttle "Mechanisms of Denial" - Censored Article

“How can being vegan be so important when so many spiritual leaders eat meat and dairy?”
On some level, we’ve all had to confront this thorny question. We naturally respect and often emulate those whom we perceive as more spiritually aware than we are, and so for Christians, for example, the fact that Jesus is portrayed as eating at least fish seems to be a direct refutation of vegan teachings. For Jews, there’s the passage in Genesis after the flood where Jehovah allows the flesh of certain animals for food, and for Buddhists, the Buddha may be portrayed as eating meat, or at least allowing his followers to do so, and I’ve heard the phrase, “The Dalai Lama eats meat” (though inaccurate) repeated as if it’s a mantra, to justify non-vegan behavior. For Hindus, many revered gurus eat dairy products and Krishna himself is portrayed as a cowherd.

It hasn't been a good week for Monsanto

It hasn't been a good week for Monsanto and the rest of the biotech industry.
Just three days ago, Mexico banned genetically engineered corn. Citing the risk of imminent harm to the environment, a Mexican judge ruled that, effective immediately, no genetically engineered corn can be planted in the country. This means that companies like Monsanto will no longer be allowed to plant or sell their corn within the country's borders.

Maccha or Matcha Tea article "Lost in Translation" and video by Rob Stuart "Better than Coffee"

Finding Real Matcha Tea

Don't confuse "Hunmatsu-RyokuCha," in Japanese, and not the same as "Maccha" or "Matcha."
The translation for Hunmatsu Ryokucha and Maccha are actually the same, green tea powder.
However, the ingredient for Maccha is a special kind of tea called "Tencha," in Japanese, and has unique "Umami."

How to Make Coconut Oil Coffee

I had given up on coffee since 2009 when I received my first diagnosis.  Since completing the Gerson Therapy I have been so well, so healthy that occasionally I indulge in a cup of coffee.  I make organic coffee with coconut oil.  The energy boost comes more from the coconut than from the caffeine.  I am able to get up and run in the morning or bike ride far longer than with an empty stomach, cirtus boost or with plain coffee.  It's an occasional treat but the energy I get from this is amazing for me but it still falls in the category of an occasional treat and a usual no-no. 

How to Make Coconut Oil Coffee

I made a cup of coconut oil coffee yesterday before my morning heated power vinyasa yoga class. I prefer to do yoga 1 – 2 hours after a meal, and since my class was first thing in the morning, a cup of coffee with a little coconut oil was the perfect pre-yoga snack.
You’ll start with a hot cup of coffee.
