I was impressed by the following article about how memories are processed. Real life events, factual data learned, and fictional data imagined or seen in a movie are processed the same way. Similar memories are grouped together regardless if they were real or imagined. This is how a distorted perspective can be created. http://theweek.com/articles/680378/science-why-experience-false-memories Dr. John Medina discusses in his book and on his web site how memories are processed during sleep. Some memories are still being processed a decade later from being exposed to that event! Ironically, last night I had a dream about my grandparents house and I [...]
This presentation compares Atkins to low carb diet, and 2 others. I found the results absolutely fascinating. You need to be a geek and watch the whole thing to watch this. To sum things up: Net flux is the universal rule, calories in equals calories out. Eat more than you burn and you will gain weight. Burn more than you eat and you will lose weight. In some situations the low carb diet has a distinctive advantage - pre diabetic and insulin resistant people benefit from the low carb diet (makes sense, right?) The quality of the calories you consume [...]

Are you a producer or a consumer? In this video I discuss that both are necessary for the ecosystem to exist. Imagine an artist as the producer, creating amazing works of art. There needs to be consumers that appreciate the artists' efforts, otherwise you have a poor staving artist that can't make a living doing what he loves. The consumers are a critical component in the ecosystem of produce and consume. There are some bad cases of consumption, where the consumer is no give and all take. But for the ecosystem to thrive the producer needs to have an audience [...]
Yesterday a nice lady at the grocer offers me a tasty sample. I ask how did you make this? Where is the shrimp from? Read about Catfish from Vietnam and you will understand the horrors of farm raised seafood from Asian countries. http://supersmartguy.com/index.php/2015/06/19/catfish-from-vietnam/ Total lack of regulation, polluted waters, fish swimming in sewage. You get served that pretty much every time you eat out for seafood. Eapecially the budget places, but you will be surprised how many good restaurants serve this. Where does your food come from? Buyer beware. This shrimp was farm raised in Indonesia. See lower left on [...]

Think about when was the last time you ate catfish at a restaurant, the cafeteria at work, or bought some for dinner from your local grocery store. Watch this video about catfish production along the polluted Mekong River and you will understand why I am concerned about our health. So little food that is imported from overseas is regulated or even tested. For your own health sake, be careful and make sure you know where your food is coming from.
