Valuable hints for being healthy outdoors people!

I know…everyone who reads this will be saying that this is supposed to be an outdoors blog about outdoors activities, not a health and fitness drop-in center!

And yes, I agree wholeheartedly! It is indeed is an outdoors blog…but..

If we don’t look after our bodies, then we’re going to be in real trouble sooner or later, for sure.

That’s where today’s post comes in…the info I’m posting is not new, but somehow we always always seem to ignore it..me inculded!

It’s a new way of looking at things, at how our diets are capable of switching certain genes, good or bad, on and off, according to what we eat. It’s called Nutri-genomics.

What our diet consists can totally transform our genes, it’s been found, so certain foods will turn the genes into nasty monsters, which enables inflammation, immune system disorders, dementia, diabetes, strokes, cancers and other lifestyle related diseases to obtain a foothold.

So, cut a long story short..what foods should we avoid and which ones do we need to eat? Read on…

EAT

Foods rich in B vitamnins..like dark leafy greens, legumes, nuts, chicken, fish, asparagus, whole grains and fruits…take a and B12 and folic acid supplement.

Eating these daily has shown to switch off genes activated by environmental pollutants such as BPA, which is a hormone disruptor present in plastics and the linings of all those drink cans and coke bottles we use every single day…yikes!

These genes once activated are responsible for miscarriages, childhood obesity, cancers and many more yet undiscovered problems.

Use canola oil, which is rich in long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids which turn off inflammatory genes in fat cells and turn on production of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

DONT EAT

Don’t eat too much carbohydrates, as these turn on risky genes. The maximum carbs you should eat should be no more than approx 30% of your diet..and even then these 30% should be whole grains, not processed.

Cut out as much saturated fat as possible…and yes, I know…that means all those yummy cheeses, cookies, pies and stuff! Well, I dunno…what kind  of a life is it where you can’t enjoy a good damn pi once in a while…so use your common sense!

There we have it! A short, sharp guide for healthy living and a long life!

You read it here first…lol!

Cooking in the wilderness…where do we go from here…?

Like hikers and walkers the world over, all of us rely on lightweight cooking utensils that are easy to carry and easy to wash.

And unfortunately, these characteristics are only available, at present, with aluminium (or if you’re in the USA…aluminum!) cook ware.

All my pots, pans etc are made out of this stuff, aside of one or two stainless spoons I carry, out of habit more than anything else.

But what I noticed a few days ago when I was drying my pots gave me one hell of a fright….take a look at those photos below….it’s a paper tissue that I used to wipe dry my cooking pot.

 

Picture 779 Picture 778

 

And no, that isn’t dirt or anything else on that tissue….the pot was sparkling clean, with just a little water left on it’s surface……that is aluminium residue coming off with every wipe! So every time we cook in our pots, a little of that aluminium gets mixed into our food….

And you should know that aluminium residues coming off during cooking have been implicated in several problems, including Alzheimer’s disease.

So what do we do? In short, that’s a damn tough one to answer!

Throw away all our aluminium pots and pans, and what do we cook in then?

Unless we buy stainless steel stuff, but of course, that’s gonna make a change to how much we can carry, as I think I’m right in saying…correct me if I’m wrong somebody….that steel is heavier than aluminium, weight for weight.

Did someone mention Teflon? That’s been implicated with cancer recently…!

Anybody have any ideas?

Why do governments do that?

Another question I have asked many a time, without finding any answers.

Why do governments try and keep, possibly life-enhancing facts, from the general public?

Amongst this, is what many say is the cure for cancer. It is said that a cure was found many years ago, for most of the known cancers anyway, but there has been a general movement to suppress the cure, orchestrated of course by the major pharmaceutical giants and world governments colluding together.

Then another even bigger form of suppression, that to do with life elsewhere in the universe. The other day, I read about a guy called Andrew Basiago, a lawyer in the USA, who is leading a movement called MARS…Mars Anomaly Research Society, and who is convinced that Mars not only was, but still is inhabited.

Basiago came to these startling conclusions when his team analysed photos taken by NASA’s exploration vehicle Spirit. The photos show, he says, humanoid presences, including carved statues and figures, tunnels, flowing water and trees, or remnants of trees.

He also says that the US government has been involved in experiments with time warp travel and quantum techniques since the 1960s, under the pseudonym DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), which led to the now infamous Philadelphia and Montauk experiments conducted by the US Navy in the 1940s (read about it here).

Whether Basiago is telling the truth or is just out to get publicity is another matter–what is of grave concern is the fact that many, many things that could well be useful to us all are deliberately being hidden by people in high places shall we say.

My question is as always — why?
