Don’t drink the Water!

No, I’m not talking about vitamin water again.

See Flouride below my workout for more…

I got back into the garage gym yesterday with Ring dips, Ring Pushups, DL’s and a new thing that I am trying to work on my handstand with called Handstand runs (See here for more on these),then did some cardio on a bike later. I’m feeling better and trying to get into a good rhythm and descent shape before the school in Cali

Flouride is put into water systems in the U.K., India and U.S.A. among others to “make our teeth healthier”

– Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.

– Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).

– USAF Major George R. Jordan testified before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s that in his post as U.S.-Soviet liaison officer, the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.”

– The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany’s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride’s supposed effect on children’s teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: “The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben” by Joseph Borkin.)

– 97% of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water due to the known health risks, however 10% of Britons drink it and the UK government is trying to fast track the fluoridation of the entire country’s water supply.

– In Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg fluoridation of water was rejected because it was classified as compulsive medication against the subject’s will and therefore violated fundamental human rights.

– In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) advised that parents should avoid giving babies fluoridated water.

– Sources of fluoride include: fluoride dental products, fluoride pesticides, fluoridated pharmaceuticals, processed foods made with fluoridated water, and tea.


WORLD FITNESS DAY

So I went on my first trail ride with a buddy on the K2 mountain bike that I picked up for $50.00. It was a fun and exhausting 2 and a half hours up and down large hills. After the ride we came across a perfect 5ft hickory log and had to bring it with us back to the garage. It felt like a good 300+ pounds. I’m looking forward to crushing souls with some log drills.

On another note…

Before reading this, know that I drink Coca Cola and have no problems with drinking the product occasionally, only the fact that they are marketing sugar as a health product, and that they are sponsoring Jane Fonda.

I’ve been battling people and educating others on the misinformation and nutritional fictions put out by advertisers, “hollywood fitness professionals”, and companies. If you had already seen my post about vitamin water here… , you will know what I’m talking about. If not check it out. What I’m getting to though is that Jane Fonda, along with Richard Simmons and others are hosting a Coca Cola sponsored “World Fitness Day” for the modest price of $75.00. I am just wondering why they are letting Coca Cola sponsor them when they are a big source of the problem. I mentioned this and someone commented saying “Coca Cola makes water also”. Okay yes they do sell 12oz bottles of water for $1.00 under the name Dasani, but if you are talking about “Vitamin Water”, you may as well have a vitamin Mountain dew. Here is the World Fitness day link for those of you that want to help raise sales for Coca Cola and help them market with the “TCG” agency that monitors your internet habits in order to selectively advertise products into your face.

On another note, be sure to come out to our World fitness day on April 24th in Richmond where Coca Cola will not be a sponsor and Jane Fonda won’t be there.By the way ours is free.

Also, click here for a good documentary showing the effects of Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners found in diet drinks and how poisonous they are to your body.

AND… I had a McDonalds breakfast the other day. Yeah I break my own rules. I figure if I’m atleast aware of what I’m doing and avoid it 9 times out of 10 I’ll be better off. Anyway we got our meal with an orange juice and a milk and guess what the sugar count was… 12g in the milk, and 30 in the orange juice. That’s 1/6 of a soda and 1/2 of a soda right there. Needless to say we didn’t finish our drinks…

Not so healthy Fruit Juice and sports drinks

I know the last few posts have hit on this a lot, but I think it needs to be drilled into some peoples heads. I was recently visiting family and they were offering us some drinks. They open the fridge and show us the sodas and a few things and then say “or you can have some gatorade or water” as if it were nearly the same thing. I explained to them that  gatorade the “thirst quencher” is made for people doing more than an hour of work who have burnt all of the ATP out of their muscles and need to restore the glucose and sodium in their body ALONG WITH lots of water in order to rehydrate AND re-energize. Not to mention that the size bottle you see people carrying around has 2.5 servings in it. When I was a kid I remember reaching into a store refrigerator to get a gatorade and a man leaned down and told me to be careful. His friend had gotten diabetes from drinking too many. I never really knew or cared why at the time. Not to bash Gatorade but a sports drink is meant for sports. Think about this. A little 12oz of soda has about 60g of sugar in it. READ THE LABELS on your food and drink. If it comes close to that you may want to consider them a dessert… or don’t. It’s in your hands. drinking Fruit juices aren’t any better. Some fruit juices and smoothies contain more sugar than a soda. If you want the fruit juice eat the actual fruit, rather than the juice with enough sugar in the first place plus added sugar and whatever else is in them. If you are drinking fruit juices I recommend light juices and cut atleast in half with water. Check out this video by Sean Croxton if you want to see more facts about it… I don’t know what kind of horse they are talking about.
