Don't go to the bar with dreads.

When I got to the "Went back to her place" part I feared the worst and that you woke up half bald. Luckily it wasn't that bad...Would've loved to see what that girls hair looked like. Couldn't have been much better.

veggie vegan omni ital? whats your diet and hows it relate to your dreadiness (if at all)


Dreads and Diets

The thing with these fantastic miracle cures is that the result is never reproducable. Exactly why is that?Information is impossible to contain. The government can't even control peer to peer sharing of copyrighted material. 1 person has to post the cure on the internet, people go DIY and figure it works and before you know it everyone knows.And the most profitable thing would be to actually have a cure for cancer, or whatever disease. There's alot of people willing to pay alot of money for it. Especially in a corrupt hell-hole like Russia I would expect it to leak out the next day. Her hip was shattered, she could talk, so why could she not post the cure so that it could be reverse engineered?You can do the math but how do you calculate what nonsense times infinity adds up to?

Can you find that study in black and white SE? Considering this goes against pretty much what is known about diet you would need some serious reproducable proof, and unless 89% of the medications were for preventing the shits I don't see how.Cancer doesn't go into remission based on diet, if it did there would be a ton of famous health food nuts still alive. It's growth can be slowed by caloric restriction but that's about it.

You folks need to stop quoting my insano-long posts lol. It's becoming annoying to scroll through them.The details of the Okinawan diet are not really important, nor possible to even verify with 100% accuracy. The paper I have read is one specifically researching the lifespan effect and it states a mere 20 grams of fish per day. It doesn't really matter. The monthly festival meat eating took care of their B-12, considering these were probably pastured animals they most likely also got their DHA/EPA from there. Either way this is a very low meat diet even if we consider the monthly festival thing a massive binge. Even if the average Okinawan consumed 1 kg of meat during this time, that's still only 35 grams or so of meat per day.Even when assuming the best possible scenario, the Okinawans most likely got less then the RDA of B-12. Omega-3 is much harder to estimate, because their crops might have contained more ALA then is normal for crops that were researched. Either way, it's very improbable they got more then 2 grams of omega-3 per day, and pretty much all of that was ALA. You should also consider that you need more then the Okinawans, considering your probably a really big westerner, and the Okinawans were atleast a half a foot shorter on average. If you're a cute little 5 foot girl then it's obviously not an issue.And whatever you watched can most likely only be considered a documentary in the broadest sense of the word. Considering you mentioned the crock of shit that is dietary curing of cancer, I'd say you're a pretty impressionable person. Even if someone spontaneously cures from cancer it is not a freaking miracle and diet might not have much to do with it. Caloric restriction is one thing that is literally proven to slow down cancer growth, not some magical holistic pixie dust and fairy farts juicing diet.We can't eat meat that's free of toxins. The argument wheter meat was healthy before the industrial revolution is a useless one. What if we could eat vegetables that contain B-12, EPA and DHA? See? Stupid argument, it doesn't exist so there's no point to go through a whole "what-if" scenario.And government grain pushing and grain subsidizing has nothing to do with insurance. It's because grain can support the largest population, if everyone refused to eat anything but grass-fed beef and healthy crops there would be a massive food crisis. Governments consider the population cattle for tax revenue generation, and as such they want the largest herd of cattle that can be supported and feeding them grain is the best way to do it. You don't need people living till 80, they only work until 65 anyway. You should thank the government, because most of the world is hooked on grains you can get healthy foods far cheaper then they should be, even considering they're 4 times as expensive due to taxation.The inuit die before 50. How many times do I have to say this? People that die early ALWAYS get less cancer, heart disease and whatnot. These are diseases that only become epidemics in countries were people live to see 70. You cannot compare a people that lives until 50 with a population that lives until 70. Most of the diseases happen during the 51-70 years of life, not during the first 50. Some inuit that gets crushed by a walrus at age 35 might have developed heart disease at 46, you simply cannot tell anything about the effect of their diet on heart disease and cancer. And like I said, they don't smoke or live near factories either. Singling out the diet as the only factor to their health even if they were healthy is making very bad assumptions. Please tell me that you understand this now. Tribes in Africa don't get alot of cancer either, why don't we analyze their diet? The average aids-infested slum doesn't have a lot of heart disease, why don't we analyze their diet? It's bad fucking science to do so, that's why.

You can't just pin it all down to 1 food category. The fact that grains form the basis of pretty much 90% of the western diet and thus screwing up the fatty acid balance is just one cog in the whole machine.Chemical toxins such as mercury, PCB's, and the whole slew of shit that's being pumped into the atmosphere, absorbed by plants, then eaten by animals who then store these toxins in their body is another. This why meat is just not healthy. Certain fish that are very low on the food chain contain much less toxins then a Blue Whale or White Shark (which have insanely dangerously high levels of toxins). Certainly eating a very small amount of fish won't cause you to die, but you'd be shocked at what minor intake there is already a danger to the fetus of a pregnant woman. It was something like 10 oz of salmon per week. Salmon has very low mercury content (the biggest danger to a fetus), tuna contains over 100x as much mercury.Genetical altering is just a silly reasoning. You know what else has been bred into not even appearing close to what it used to be? Pigs. Sheep. Dogs. Cats. Broccoli. Banana's. Pea's. It's not a big health issue. If we had genetically modified grains with a perfect fatty acid balance it would be healthy.The point isn't the lifespan, the point is cancer is a byproduct of aging. People that grow old have a much bigger chance of getting cancer. If people aren't growing old, then they have a much lower chance of getting cancer.We have 2 people. The inuit, that eat a ton of meat and had very little if no access to modern medicine. Average lifespan: 50 years.And the Okinawans, that eat mostly sweet potatoes and had very little if no access to moderm medicine. Average lifespan: 84 years.Which diet would be more likely to help with a long healthy life?All across the board the Okinawans show the healthiest profile in the world. Least amount of coronary heart disease, least amount of cancer, highest average lifespan, highest maximum lifespan. Even compared to already long lived and healthy people such as the Japanese. The inuit are, on the other hand, comparable to third world countries. Analyzing their diet and just plain lying about their lifespan and incidence of disease was done to make some money with new way of health obsession for the masses that didn't involve killing the meat industry.Every piece of the Okinawan diet can be attributed to life span increasing properties. Caloric restriction, very high potassium, very low sodium, very high antioxidants (vitamin E, vitamin A, Vitamin C etc), virtually no toxins/pollutants, balanced fatty acid intake. The inuit diet is just...a meat heavy diet. Eaten by people that die before they hit 60. It's no surprise they have very few incidences of cancer. I bet they also don't smoke or live near factories. Why don't we say that those are the cause of their health rather then the diet? They aren't even healthy. They just die before they get sick.

@JustSomeChickYay! I consider you to be remotely nice :D.Melanie did totally hit the nail on the head, though. That is exactly how you appeared to me aswell. Random mouthy chick.The hip part was about you approach the whole matter:"anyhow, after watching Forks Over Knives, my husband and I have decided on vegetarianism.".That sentence is just...I don't even have any words for it. It's like a serial killer seriously telling people "After watching Silence of the Lambs, me and my parole officer have decided I should stop murdering hot women".Natural does not equal good. Popping a pill to get B-12 with an otherwise healthy diet is probably better then eating meat/animal products and getting toxins to go with it. I know nothing about that Amish farm, so I suppose eating eggs is no issue if the chickens are treated well, but eggs are just not that healthy in the first place. Second, you would have to consume quite a bit of eggs to get sufficient B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids. It doesn't really solve anything, you will probably need to supplement both in order to get optimal amounts. Diary industry cows are treated no better then meat industry cows, so why drink milk unless that also comes from the Amish farm. Again, what's with the RAW! milk thing? Natural does not equal good, there's a reason they pasteurize that crap. While were on the matter of natural, it is not natural for a grown woman to consume the milk of another species.The eskimo/inuit thing is taken way out of proportion. Do you know what their lifespan is? An awesome 50 years. These people do not even live close to even western society retirement regardless of their impeccable health. Do you know where else people rarely get cancer? In just about every third world country!Do you know what people did live ridiculously long even by western society standard? The Okinawans. A bunch of simple farmers that lived off pretty much 99% sweet potatoes. Virtually no grains, virtually no meat (they did have some monthly festival thing in which they ate meat), virtually no fat or protein. Virtually no modern healthcare. Just. Frigging. Sweet potatoes.

Started combing out my dreads...


General Talk

Going to start on some more...This is seriously going to take a month lol.Actually much happier about the decision to get rid of them now. Yesterday/morning I was pretty fucked up because I accidently picked out one of my fav dreads, I didn't really notice until I was halfway done and thought "screw it" and finished it.So far it seems the ends of my hair are very thin. It's much longer then when I started neglect, but I think there's been alot of casualties for the older hairs. Hopefully it's going to end up thicker then I think, would make me feel kinda shitty if my hair got screwed up (and certainly up the barrier of starting neglect again later).
