Apparently we're not only feminizing ourselves, but fish as well.

Estrogen in foods and waters are but the tip of the iceberg.

Occurrences of hermaphrodite fish and reptiles are well documented.
Lower fertility rates, effete behavior, increase sexual mutations, are all a part of it.

Quick and easy.  Asparagus, potatoes, tomatoes, capsicum roasted, small beets, avocado, Persian Fetta and chilli tuna, you can add balsamic vinegar, mayo, olive oil, lemon juice, black pepper, according to your taste and of course some fresh crusty bread, drizzled with oil or balsamic vinegar.

I just read the aspartame whole article now. I did not read the user comments below it though, or the other vids. I never liked aspartame. I don't understand why GMO is usually bad for people's health, but maybe the methods used are somehow unskillful.

On the importance of human milk for babies.

A.M. Ludovici - The four Pillars of Health wrote:
Put your child of six months to the dug of a goat, an ass, or a cow, and immediately your vision tells you that the thing is monstrously wrong, offensively unnatural! If however, every morning you receive the milk of a goat, an ass, or a cow, in a clean, neatly-labelled bottle, the connexion between your infant and the lower animal is not so obvious — in fact, it is so successfully disguised that it has to be deliberately pondered over in order to be appreciated. And yet Nature does, of course, provide for differences between the milk of distinct species, and to mix them up, or distribute them indiscriminately as man once thought he could do, is as monstrous as the spectacle of your child at the animal's dug.
In human milk, for instance, three substances — tryptophan, lecithin and calcium (to mention only the most obvious) — are present in very different proportions from those known to exist in the milk of the cow. And if we compare the tasks which have to be performed by human and cow's milk respectively, this will not seem strange. Cow's milk has, in a few months, to rear an animal relatively big of bone, small of brain and not too highly or delicately organized. In a few months also, human milk has to rear a creature relatively small of bone, large of brain, and so highly organized that the perfection of its senses and bodily controls has made it the master of the world.
Unless, in this matter alone, Nature has departed singularly from her customary method of suiting her provisions to the requirements, how could cow's and human milk be interchangeable? As a matter of fact, cow's milk contains more calcium than is needed by the young human being; it contains too little lecithin, which is a brain-cell builder, and although it contains more protein than human milk, it does not contain the relatively high proportion of that very high-grade form of protein, tryptophan, on which human young depend for their development, including, of course, that of their intricate endocrine equipment.

Seems obvious, if you think about it.
Later he also writes about a study which shows a statistical correlation between breast-feeding and breast-cancer - The more breast-feeding the smaller the rate of breast-cancer. It's not necessarily connected but it's not that far-fetched either.

Ludovici on over-eating.

Ibid. wrote:
My own view, however, is that over-eating, universal though it is in Europe, is generally due not so much to the actual ingestion of too much food as bulk, but of too much food of the concentrated kind.
It is natural and normal to desire a sense of repletion after eating, and it is in the practice of securing this sensation, not by food of low nutritive value, but to an excessive extent by high class proteins, that habitual sitomania or over-eating consists.
If people habitually obtained the sense of repletion by bulk of the right sort, i.e., less highly concentrated food-stuffs, they would satisfy their natural craving for repletion at meals, and at the same time not be excessive eaters.

Overall, a more bulky diet is recommended for several reasons - The necessity to exercise the intestinal tract; Alleviation of dyspepsia,...

On vitamins -

Ibid. wrote:
Until the year 1910, only 33 years ago, mankind knew only about four classes of nutritive substances — proteins, fats, carbohydrates and mineral salts. And the chemists told you that provided the amount of each of these substances you absorbed sufficed to make up an adequate number of calories per day, you were all right and need not bother about anything else.
Thus, we used to be told by the chemists that it did not matter two pins whether you ate butter or margarine, because in ultimate analysis, each yielded the same number of calories to the body.
In vain did the layman protest that in spite of all the calories in Christendon, margarine was quite unlike butter. In vain did the housewife protest that when mice attacked her stores it was the butter they ate and not the margarine. The chemists remained obdurate and declared that scientifically butter and margarine were identical. And this was the attitude to all foodstuffs. Provided they yielded the requisite number of calories, nobody bothered whether the human palate or whether discriminating animals drew invidious distinctions between them.
Such was the position until about the year 1910, when a number of mysterious diseases, such as beri-beri, rickets, scurvy, and the general susceptibility to infection and the lack of a capacity for repair in the body, induced investigators very reluctantly to conclude that there must be some other quality in food which hitherto chemistry had failed to trace and which, if absent, led to certain diseases.
For instance, after exhaustive researches, it was found that it was the natives living on polished rice who contracted beri-beri, while those living on unpolished rice remained immune.

My thoughts on artificial substitutes -
There are substitutes for certain vitamins which can help alleviate deficiencies - Vitamin D complex for example, which is difficult to take in sufficiently via food during the winter time, due to reduced sunshine exposure on naked skin. But at times those food supplements are either not helping (Vitamin C) or even dangerous (Vitamin A). In the case of Vitamin C it's usually missing critical components, namely Vitamin C2 which is required for successful absorption and usefulness overall within the body. And Vitamin A could easily lead to a dangerous over-dose (in particular during pregnancies) if it is not contained within a certain complex which the body can absorb as needed without the risk of an overdose.

Quote :
"A 26-year-old Chinese man has reportedly developed breasts, which his doctors say has been caused by hormones in his favourite fried chicken.

Li visited doctors after his chest began to change and become larger and larger.

Doctors told him that the hormones in the chicken were the reason behind his inflated breasts and he should eat more vegetables and fruits to reverse the growth, People's Daily Online reported.

Gynecomastia, the enlargement of breast tissue in males, can be caused when an imbalance of oestrogen and testosterone occurs. However, there are no authentic studies which officially links the condition to diet."

I used to eat only the egg yolks. Making strength gains without eggs is impossible, all the "bodybuilder" types of trainers I've talked to always said they threw the yolk away (idiots).

I started eating the egg white first time this year, I do see the benefits in egg whites as well, it's cheap protein so it saves money. The hardest part is always to eat right and a lot. I've got so sick of eating raw egg yolks with orange juice that I can't even drink orange juice anymore, when I started I drank 5-6 raw egg yolks every single morning for 10 months straight, even on rest days.

Organic eggs/brown eggs have a really good tasting egg yolk (tastes like pancakes) , but they usually are more expensive.

Even the patterns participating in the unity, the congruity of organism, is not in perfect harmony.
Attraction/Repulsion, though decreased over time, is still part of the internal hierarchy, resulting in dis-ease, and/or in personality.

With meditation, the mind calms the nervous system, which is stressed by this internal disharmony.
The nervous system being the nexus connecting mind/body, resulting in the external/internal or in the usual binary self/other.

With proper nutrition the (inter)activity between one organ and the other, one cell and the other, is reduced or is brought into a more harmonious congruity, reducing friction, and with it the potential for dis-ease.
Exercise rids the mind/body of excess, free-radical, energies, unable to be integrated into the unity.
Proper diet, specific to each species, and to each individual within species, reduces the production of these free-radicals, placing less stress upon the processes, and reducing the friction their (inter)actions produce naturally.

Foods of less complexity, such as those consumed by herbivores, refer us back to our original nutritional habits, before the needs of the organ brain necessitated a more complex food source, one packed with more energies.

Our digestive organs are less strained by the digestive process of breaking apart and assimilating, and then riding itself of the excess toxins, what cannot be integrated into the unity.
At the same time the nutrition absorbed is less condensed - the sun's energies less intense, requiring more digestion and processing.
More condensed solar energy, puts stress on the organism, not originally evolved to be a carnivore, but evolving the habit out of necessity, and this enables larger brains to evolve and to be fed its high energy demands.
Balance is required here.
