https://youtu.be/S5t6K9iwcdw. This is a very interesting video to me because this concept is a big part of the story I’m just completing called ‘The Carneeg.’ some of the early parts of the story have already been published on this website if you’re curious!
Here is an elegantly written piece of micro fiction, which John C Mannone describes as a prose poem that doesn’t use juxtaposition, yet is surreal. I was just blown away by the density and depth of the chosen words that makes this poetic picture one to never to leave your mind:
— — —
The river writhes through narrow chambers, crisscrossing into reticulation of arteries mapping the heart of earth. For a moment, I’m smaller than a drop of that water dissolving through rock; smaller than a microbe propelling inexorably to the source of life, to the laughter of rain, to the brass-brilliant sun, to the hero of creation.
I thought this was exceptionally beautiful poetry!

Greetings Bobby Kelton, I have a question I would have loved to ask you after your spectacular performance at Floral Lakes in Delray Beach two nights ago. It was very Spectacular!
I am an author and have always wondered why it appears there is no such thing as classical humor; why humor loses meaning and power with time and even culture. You have broken that rule! Let me tell you why.
You did something totally amazing as I perceived it. In my mind, you extracted the essence of humor (the human condition) and clothed it in the cultural experience of your audience just for that evening, even down to “The Boys Supermarket” joke about the parking lot being so much bigger than the store… for sure! This is like being able to tell jokes in every language on Earth!
Is my perception correct? Do you visualize the humor in the human state and just re-clothe it in culture and local demographics for your listening audience? It sure seemed like you were talking to just me.
I cannot see how you did what you did otherwise and I am pretty imaginative. You see, you could not go back to the Johnny Carson show even if he was still alive (I do miss him). You have transcended that level of performance in your life and even though Floral Lakes does not seem as challenging as Johnny Carson on T.V. live, your performance was far better because you are now a Classical Comedian. I have never seen one before and I am not sure there is another anywhere. Congratulations!
That is my two Bitcoins 🙂

While mainstream medicine falls into line with pharmaceutical interests and screams at you to wear sunblock and sunscreens………. there is lots of evidence that this is total stupidity! NOT to say that getting a sunburn will not harm you, here they are very correct! However tanning gradually and gently does incredible good! Here is just one of dozens of reasons to consider tanning regularly, getting daily sun exposure!
1. GMO FOODS (Any of them)
The Situation: GMO foods encourage the massive spraying of herbicides on our topsoils, polluting the ground, waterways, animals and humans. Scientific studies have shown the RoundUp Ready genes in GMO foods to transfer to our intestinal flora and the pesticide producing genes, called Bt-toxins, to be present in both unborn fetuses and their mothers. In short, GMO foods pollute our environment and our bodies. No long term health studies of GMO foods have been performed on humans. In addition to polluting our bodies with mutant DNA, eating RoundUp Ready GMO foods insures a hefty dose of herbicide given that GMO crops are even more heavily sprayed than conventional non-organic crops. The environmental, political, economic, and social damage by GMO foods is staggering. GMO foods include corn, soybeans, sugar beets, potatoes, alfalfa, canola, potato, papaya, rice, honey, squash, rapeseed, tomatoes, sweet corn, tobacco, peas, and more.
The Solution: Check that all the food you purchase is non-GMO. Demand a halt to GMO foods any chance you get. Support mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Buy ORGANIC. Plant a garden

2. CANNED TOMATOES
The Expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A.
The Situation: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most people’s body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. “You can get 50 mcg of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that’s a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young,” says vom Saal. “I won’t go near canned tomatoes.”
The Solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe’s and Pomi.
3. CORN-FED BEEF
The Expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming.
The Situation: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease. “We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure,” says Salatin.
The Solution: Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers’ markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It’s usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don’t see it, ask your butcher.

4. MICROWAVE POPCORN
The Expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group.
The Situation: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. “They stay in your body for years and accumulate there,” says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.
The Solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.
5. FARMED SALMON
The Expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.
The Situation: Nature didn’t intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus. “You can only safely eat one of these salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer,” says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media attention. “It’s that bad.” Preliminary science has also linked DDT to diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.
The Solution: Switch to wild-caught Alaska salmon. If the package says fresh Atlantic, it’s farmed. There are no commercial fisheries left for wild Atlantic salmon.
6. MILK PRODUCED WITH ARTIFICIAL HORMONES
The Expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society.
The Situation: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. “When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract,” says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. “There’s not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans,” admits North. “However, it’s banned in most industrialized countries.”
The Solution: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.
7. CONVENTIONAL APPLES
The Expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and co-director of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods
The Situation: If fall fruits held a “most doused in pesticides contest,” apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted (descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its distinctive flavor. As such, apples don’t develop resistance to pests and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it’s just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples. “Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers,” he says. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson’s disease.
The Solution: Buy organic apples. If you can’t afford organic, be sure to wash and peel them first.

NOTE: This article is nearly 5 years old and yet food has gotten worse and not better!
If simple cells can talk, and you are about to learn how they do so, why do we have so much trouble amongst our varied nations?
In the Ted Talk below you will learn how some of the smallest creatures in our world, can communicate with each other, take population surveys and make decisions, as a group. Decisions such as to whether it and its colleagues can successfully wage war upon a host! In essence there is a social media for bacteria!
We THINK that we communicate yet our methods of communication are so poor that at times they cause intra-species war, death and destruction: Look at the Islamic – Judeo-Christian “warfare” of today! Yet what we view as simpler, less intelligent species may be doing far better in communication and cooperation with not just others of its species but with other species!
As you watch this video, keep in mind how single human beings and their families, when surveyed, can easily picture harmonious living with almost any culture or religion. On the other hand, given a “leader” who can commandeer the media and claim “ultimate authority” for his message………. the same peaceful beings can be lead into the bloodiest of wars. Is there something to be learned from single celled animals, who talk? This video is about the future of medical treatment of disease by learning the language of bacteria…….. think outside the box with me! Think about communications! Think about blockchain….. and no “leaders” who control the media / communications!
