I'll have to check the GF for EMF leakage....may explain my lack of good sleep...and perhaps it can also explain where all my money has gone too....

Something interesting I just thought of;

I don't wear wrist watches because they make my wrist really sore. I realized this about 5 years ago and since then I've been wearing a pocket watch. I've had problems with stiffness in my right hamstring leading to tendonitis and lately a bit of a nagging in my right hip. I wear my pocket watch on my right side. Time for an experiment...

Yeah actually I was wearing a wrist watch a couple years back and I kept getting rashes right where the watch was. I thought it was just from the friction of the watch on my wrist, but it didn't go away for a while like friction usually does. If it was low level radiation poisoning that could definitely explain it.

Between chemical poisoning and radiation poisoning, humans are doomed. Hate to be pesstimistic but the sad fact is majority of people could care less, until it is too late or they are directly affected.

Actually just finished watching an episode on cnn about the young boy who underwent a chemical testing and very high levels of various chemicals were found in his body. Just sad how much we underestimate these health concerns as a society.

Yep....doomed...somewhere I see a whole fleet of aliens...one asks "When do we invade"....the other says "Just sit back, they will take care of themselves..."

Also lest we not forget the massive amounts of radiation we get from CT/X-ray/MRI scans that doctors dish out like candy......and those full body scan CT centers....Hmmmmm...let's scan for cancer and single dose you with 1000x the amount of radiation you should be exposed to in your lifetime....this is health care??

Whole body CT screening exposes you to radiation levels that are 500 to 1000 times as high as those of a routine chest X-ray, and increases your risk of developing radiation-induced cancer.

Mike, you just reminded me of one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips.

The stuff about x-rays was definitely on my mind when they were x-raying my shoulder. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

Cheer up guys we also have so many positives going for us.

Insane variety of fruits and vegetables available, grass-fed meats, IF, incredibly fine-tuned workout strategies, health care (Canadian) or insurance.

The most powerful tool available to mankind: the placebo effect. Think healthy, be healthy.

Greg,
That is true and it only goes so far.

Dogs seem to be the happiest creatures around, and I don't know that they ever "worry" about anything other than getting punished for breaking a rule.

Feed them wrong or poison them, they still get sick.

I'm in the business of optimistic healthcare and even I have to admit that this could be why my most disciplined patients still aren't getting better.

A happy, healthy person getting microwaved is still going to get cooked.

I am positive...positive we are doomed! Ha....Nah....it's all good just need to inform people to really not accept everything as safe and to make up their own minds about health....unfortunately that is not the case as most all people trust the govt and doctors to tell them everything....and we wonder why obesity and every other disease is on the rapid increase....time for a new outlook.....that and just because man/industry makes and sells it doesn't mean is safe or wont cause long term damage...plastics, artificial sweetners, drugs, lead paint, etc..etc...etc....

Its really scary to consider what is really "safe" by govt standards....and by that time it has already done the damage. The body is amazing and smarter than we will ever be...so thankfully it can handle a good amount of crap we put into it...unfortunately that daily level of toxins/EMF/and other destructive elements are increasing daily....and the body will only want to handle so much before health turns in the wrong direction.
