Tea up!
A key component in my chemo-free cancer fight was drinking copious amounts of herbal tea.  Especially the ones with high anti-oxidant and immune boosting properties.  Most days I would have a hot cup in the morning, iced tea with meals, and a hot cup before bed.  I highly recommend you get the…Read more

Weekday Vegetarianism?

We all know the arguments that being vegetarian is better for your health, the environment, and animals - - but in a carnivorous culture it can be hard to make the change.  Graham Hill has a powerful pragmatic suggestion.  Be a weekday vegetarian. This 4 minute video is excellent and neatly summarizes my post-cancer diet.  Watch it!

What I Eat Now, Post-Cancer

Before I got cancer I ate whatever I wanted, which was a lot of processed and cooked food.
Micah and I both worked a lot and didn’t prepare fresh meals often.  I ate bacon, eggs and toaster waffles for breakfast; and Super Sized 
fast food for lunch, which was usually a double cheeseburger, fries and a coke.  Dinner was either microwaved, or something like grilled chicken breast, or bacon wrapped filets with a cooked vegetable side.

iPhone4, Blackberry: High Radiation

In this video Tawkon introduces their new app, which monitors radiation levels emitted by cell phones. They show that the iPhone 4 isn’t the only smartphone with reduced signal if held improperly. As an Apple fan I’m glad to see an independent third party dispel the iPhone 4 “Antennagate” nonsense. But it’s not all smiles…Read more.

I Juiced to Beat Cancer and Turned Orange
