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.

I think Captain Tammy Duckworth, Army veteran and candidate for Congress said it best: "Instead of a plan or a strategy, we get shallow slogans like 'mission accomplished' and 'stay the course.'" Thank God we have patriots like her who can speak truth to power, and who actually have credibility.

Here’s a good article on how foods can help fight disease. Eating lots of vegetables may lower your risk of developing lymphoma. Maybe we also need an article on how foods can actually make us sick.

Pecans may inhibit oxidation in the blood vessels and lower risk of heart disease. They also contain a lot of vitamin E, phytonutrients, and unsaturated fats. Pistachios, however, have the highest percentage of monounsaturated fats, and are actually part of a Mediterranean diet.

We reported some time ago that omega-6 fatty acids promote the growth of prostate tumors. These fatty acids are found in abundance in an American diet, mostly in the oils we use, like corn oil. Here is an article that discusses how increasing omega-3s and decreasing omega-6s actually reduce growth rate of prostate tumors.

This article rates the twenty most popular diet web sites. Aetna InteliHealth, MayoClinic.com, and MedicineNet.com are supposedly the top three. I would be careful, however, using a web site wherein you have to input personal medical information, particularly those sites operated by insurance companies. I fear that your personal information can be used to make decisions on whether to deny coverage, how much coverage you receive, and on how much premiums cost.

Listen to my song, Get the Hell out of Iraq. (See lyrics here.)

    Hi Ed,
    I like your blog. As a Democrat and more importantly as a human being that cares about our planet, I agree with you on many of your commentaries. We need to leave Iraq. That is what I believe.

    Hi Ed

    I just published a Taoist Book called A Personal Tao.

    After working in the book for 5 years, I released the first draft last year and I have just finished up the final form of the book this week. So :) yay!

    I would be honored if you took a look and let me know what you thought :)

    Thanks and Peace

    Casey
