Brain Peptides

Brain

Human beings love to be stoned. Despite police and prison and pecuniary penalties, the human intoxication impulse is apparently insatiable. And, as it turns out, there’s a biochemical basis to our brain’s desires for deliriousness.

In many ways human neurology is literally hardwired to be high. For example, our brains make chemicals called peptides that activate the same cells that marijuana does. Essentially, we make our own pot. We’re all literally pot heads.

And that’s not all. Our brains make peptides that activate the same cells as amphetamine and cocaine too. In other words, in addition to making our own marijuana we make our coke and speed. We make our own valium and Vicodin too. Endogenous human peptides it seems are also behind lots of drug effects and drug addictions.

Avocados

This past November’s issue of the highly regarded publication ”Nutritional Journal” has a cool article about avocados. It quotes a study (entitled, somewhat awkwardly, “A Randomized Crossover Study to Evaluate the Effect of Hass Avocado Intake on Post-Ingestive Satiety and Insulin Levels and Subsequent Energy Intake in Overweight Adults“!) that compared the effects of adding a fresh avocado to a lunchtime meal to the effects of eating a standard non-avocado-including lunch.

Did you know you can prevent avocados from browning by sprinkling the flesh with a little lime or lemon juice?

Use lots of Celtic Sea Salt on raw, fresh avocados. The salt and avocado fats will act synergistic-ally to amplify the distinctive tastes and subtle flavors of the rich, buttery fruit.

Can’t wait to eat your hard avocado? You can hasten it’s ripening by putting it in a paper bag. The bag will trap ethylene oxide, a ripening-inducing gas that is emitted by the tasty fruit as it ages. Make sure you keep the bag in a dark cool area and you check your avocado regularly or you may end up making guacamole!

Avoid Cancer With Proper Nutrition

Healthy Food

Cancer is a sign of a body, tissues and cells that have been exposed, malnourished and abused for decades. Because cancer cells are OUR very own cells (dysfunctional as they may be) anything that "kills" cancer cells is in essence suicide medicine that ultimately kills the very body it is supposedly healing! That's why chemotherapy is such a miserable experience and is rarely if ever effective.
