I have just had an unexpected but incredible insight into the alternate possibilities that my brain might be capable of or that others might naturally possess. I recently had to have a heart ablation. This procedure is undertaken in order to correct an irregular heartbeat. It involves the burning or freezing of some of the … Continue reading Heart Ablation Opens the Mind
The Slow, the O-So Slow Rise of Vegetarianism
As a dietary choice vegetarianism has been around for years. I actually became veggie in the mid 1980’s. At that time vegetarians weren’t that common. It would have been considered a strange and unusual practice to adopt. In fact, vegetarians were probably considered a little bit odd. In those days there was no vegetarian options … Continue reading The Slow, the O-So Slow Rise of Vegetarianism
Healthy Eating – How do you Measure the Goodness?
We may well be familiar with the expression that you can’t compare apples with oranges, but can you compare bananas with bananas? Certainly apples are very different from oranges, making any comparison difficult. But bananas are - seemingly - very similar to one another, so can you compare them in terms of their health benefits, … Continue reading Healthy Eating – How do you Measure the Goodness?
Stress – It’s Our Greatest Danger
Until very recently it was thought that smoking, alcohol, obesity and poor lifestyle were the main causes for people to develop a heart condition. It turns out that they are merely contributory factors. The main trigger for heart attacks, strokes and death it seems is stress. In the last few years it has been shown … Continue reading Stress – It’s Our Greatest Danger
Death – It’s a Matter of Timing
There’s a natural order to life, rules which we expect to follow, principles which are generally accepted: Older people should die before younger ones. Healthy people should live longer than those who have lived an unhealthy life. Children should not die before their parents. Unfortunately, these rules do not always apply. There are no guarantees … Continue reading Death – It’s a Matter of Timing

Blood Types – Do they Exist by Chance or by Design?
Here’s a genetic oddity…. Why do we have different blood types? You would think that human blood would be the same all over. It’s a commodity product. It is there to do a job. It dispenses nutrients through the body, it delivers oxygen and takes away carbon dioxide, it staves off infections and it carries … Continue reading Blood Types – Do they Exist by Chance or by Design?
The Exercise Drug
I think I might have a bit of a drug problem. My drug is exercise. I covet those endorphin and dopamine highs which are released in those post-workout moments. My problem is this; when I haven’t done any exercise for a couple of days I start to experience mood swings, feelings of guilt, an inability … Continue reading The Exercise Drug
A Gym Geek … but Why?
Why do I persist in going to the gym? No, this is not a dispirited moan that I have not lost the weight I was hoping to lose. This is a more fundamental enquiry as to why I put myself through the toil and sweat of doing three or four gym sessions a week. And … Continue reading A Gym Geek … but Why?
Fated for Illness
Most of the time we just take it for granted. We don’t even think about it. We usually have other, more pressing matters on our mind. And most of the time we can get away with it. It’s not an issue. We can get on with our lives. And then it strikes. We can suddenly … Continue reading Fated for Illness
