Ancient Vegans the Orphics and the Hymn to Health

Orpheus charming wild animals with his music To Health O Much-desir'd, prolific, gen'ral queen, Hear me, life-bearing, Health, of beauteous mien, Mother of all; by thee diseases dire, Of bliss destructive, from our life retire; And ev'ry house is flourishing and fair, If with rejoicing aspect thou art there: Each daedal art, thy vig'rous force inspires, And all the world thy helping hand desires; Pluto life's bane alone resists thy will, And ever hates thy all-preserving skill.

Big Georges Journey

I grew up in believing that if one drinks his milk, eats all his food on his plate and eats plenty of meat that I will have robust health and grow up healthy and strong. Of course this seemed to make sense to me because everyone around me was doing this so it must be the right thing to do. How could so many people be wrong? Besides, while growing up my father worked in a meat factory in charge of maintenance, so I never questioned the consumption of meat at that time.

Welcome to the FIREWORKS homepage! Here you will find information related to issues resulting from fireworks discharge. Though the content is largely focussed on the CVRD (Cowichan Valley Regional District, British Columbia, Canada), the ideas are applicable to any community which regards fireworks displays at best, a nuisance or at worst, a hazard. The specific difficulties to eliminating fireworks are: many people are not informed of the rules regarding fireworks in their community some don't realize that fireworks can harm wildlife, livestock, pets and neighbors a selfish few, don't care whom they bother or what the law says The content here may encourage the first 2 groups understand the problems and then to act with consideration, but the last group needs to be dealt by law enforcement.

Mental Diet

Many people talk about the benefits of different food diets. However we have forgotten probably one of the most important diets to our health and that being a Mental Diet. It is not only important in what we put in our mouths but also equally important is what we put in our minds. As the saying goes 'Garbage in and Garbage out'. In today's society we have become accustomed to let a box with a screen dominate our thoughts.

Periods May Be Normal but Are They Healthy?

[Our thanks to Debbie Took for allowing reprinting from her original blog.] Disclaimer : not a doctor, not a scientist, just a raw fooder who blogs.

I'm just presenting an…alternative view of something that is considered 'normal' in our modern, 'developed' society, and that (we've been brought up to think) is therefore healthy.

Pesticides and Our Crops

In today's society we hear often the term pesticides. What are pesticides? Pesticides are harmful chemicals that are sprayed on produce to prevent insects from destoying the crop. That seems kind of odd doesn't it? Putting harmful chemicals on food that we will eventually consume. Do they realize that if insects and bugs are running away from these deadly chemicals what the chemicals would do in our bodies. Pesticides are a big business and in theworld of greed - money seems to be the biggest motivating factor.


I often hear the word Stress almost everywhere I go. It is almost as if it is normal to feel or have Stress. Is it really normal? Many people blame their ill health and lifestyle on Stress. What is Stress? Stress is simply the result of thoughimages that we choose to repeat over and over in our minds. Therefore if stress comes from our thoughts, is it then not safe to say that since we are in control of our thoughts that we just simply replace poor thoughts with more elevated ones to alleviate Stress?
