The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

The Tao of Bird Flu
34. There are three precious things that bird flu threatens – our safety, our way of life, and our relationship with nature. Can we combat bird flu without threatening these things ourselves?

Bird Flu Note
For those who might think that bird flu is something trivial, it has already cost farmers more than $10 billion. It looks like that figure will only rise, and probably rise a lot. And I don’t think that figure includes the cost in human lives, or in medical expenses.

Health Notes
There may be an actual physical explanation why some people can’t do math.

Sushi might be bad for you, because of the mercury in the raw fish. Read this, and beware.

Need more reason to drink your wine? How about dietary fiber?
