If the latest EPA smog regulation rollback makes you feel ill, just try not breathing the air!
Or drinking the water (fracking contamination, pharmaceutical drugs found in water, toxic effects of fluoride, arsenic and radioactive substances like uranium) or eating (processed meats, sugar and high fructose corn syrup, vegetable oils, nutrient depletion in soil creates nutrient deficient foods), or walking in shoes (You Walk Wrong), or...you know what? Fuck it. Guess we'll all just see each other in the hospital! At least we can rest easy knowing our manufactured poor health will line the pockets of the other MIC (Medical Industrial Complex - i.e. Big Pharma, Big Insurance, and the new entrepreneurial mentality that creates physician/executive hybrids that prefer patients remain in a bottomless pit of chronic disease in order to put more money in the pockets of more people in the hospital)!


(To go with the shoe bit. This picture was taken from a study published in 1905, in the American Journal of Orthopedic Surgery, showing the difference between a pair of feet of a native of the Philippines, who never wore shoes (Fig 1), and those of a Westerner, whose feet have been deformed by shoes (Fig 2/3). Check out the book The Barefoot Book: 50 Great Reasons to Kick Off Your Shoes for a more in-depth look on the subject.)


At this point, all we can do is sing along with Tom Lehrer - Pollution


(Also, Deep Nutrition is a great book on the food we eat and how it effects us - and our lineage - more than we realize, or would like to admit. One of many, but it happens to be incredibly comprehensive.)
