It's not just me talking about these "wild" health ideas

Although you may not hear about alternatives much from mainstream media, doctors and nutritionists, there is a huge underground community of people getting acquainted with the ideas. There are hundreds if not thousands of doctors and scientists who are on the bandwagon.

For the most part, who you'll hear from about wellness are those who tend (like me) to question authority, especially when authority doesn't seem to be helping. I hesitate to say--but it seems true--that they are less concerned with profit motives than some. If your doctor never sees you for more than five minutes, how can he or she possibly talk about diet and nutrition? They are time intensive subjects. And the mainstream views hold sway because..."everybody knows saturated fat is bad for you." and "cholesterol causes heart disease."

Well, everybody doesn't. More and more professionals and ordinary people are questioning what everybody knows. I talk about this stuff, I write about this stuff. I reach a few people, but there are experts out there who are reaching people in large numbers now. Below are some short, interesting samples from you tube, that are definitely worth takinga look at!

To your good health!

"The Truth Shall Set You Free"

I think so. But more importantly, the untruths, the mis-information, the lack of information and the damned lies by special interests will bind you into a prison of poor health, poor function and just not feeling good!

This whole thing, then, is about uncovering truth. I accept that it's sometimes elusive. I accept that it's sometimes developing. But let's find out what difference a good diet can make (any? none?) and oh, by the way, what the heck is a good diet?

Watch! We're exploring and discovering!
