Newly Discovered Garbage Patch in the South Pacific Is 1.5 Times the Size of Texas, Study Says | The Weather Channel:

Let's TRASH it !

Speaking of trash.

We keep making it.

We box it, we stack it.

We keep spreading it liberally around the world.

We keep taking the planet for granted. !!!


Check out the Great Pacific Garbage Patch at Wikipedia.  Note the visualization of ocean flows using ocean buoys (off to the right).

Okay. Coconut oil really is good for you, no BS

I was surprised to see what seemed like a reputable source questioning the good health values of coconut oil. See our blog post here.

But I like this discussion much better by Dr Hyman. He discusses how coconut oil always has been good for you. The "battle against cholesterol" is generally a bogus war being won by billions of dollars in Staten drug pharma. Hyman discusses island countries that have no cancer and no heart disease, but eat tonnes of coconuts off the trees!

In short, coconut oil increases your good cholesterol (HDL) and improves your cholesterol ratio. What it might do to total cholesterol is in no way relevant. It leads to heather outcomes and lower risk of heard disease.

Dr Hyman complains that the FDA shows a bias toward the existing huge organizations, avoiding the most basic foundations of health and science. Hyman observes how they caution against cholesterol, without scientific foundation, yet allow sugary cereal and soft-drinks.  After watching them tap-dancing around the labeling for GMO, you gotta believe it. (GMO labeling is required, but it does not have to be on the purchase label, just off in space on a web site somewhere.)

Doc H argues that coconut (oil) is still one of the most healthy and wholesome super foods in existence. He presents the evidence. He wrote the book. It looks like he's got it right.
