H1ow N1ot to Get Swine Flu

H1N1 again? Yup! Again. Not a favorite of mine but certainly seems to be a media favorite and likewise a high priority of governments with a 'You need us to save you' view of their function.

That being said, I came across the blog of Mark Sisson, which I'm still evaluating, and there it was again... "H1N1". And I like his catchy title "H1ow N1ot to Get Swine Flu". I think I'm on track with much of what he says but I'm reminded that there are definitely things I need to work on. Work on not just to avoid H1N1 but for healthy living. As I read Mark's article it is not so much steps to avoid Swine flu but rather a philosophy of health that provides among its benefits a strong immune system.

What led me to Mark's Daily Apple was not even related to the topic of this blog entry, rather his excellent, well researched article on saturated fats - the boogey man of modern heart health because of it's supposed artery clogging properties. I've linked to it in my Credible Evidence list on the right column.

Read both articles and much more here.

More Bad News about Statins

Jon Barron of Baseline of Health Foundation has written an article titled "More Bad News about Statins". In the article, which I do wish he had provided a link to the source, he sites a study published in the Journal of Pathology which reported "...virtually all patients who take statins experience muscle damage, even if they don't have pain."

Please read his full article here.
