Now wait a gosh darned minute. So now alcohol and caffeine are bad for you? You guys are worse than the dueling headlines in medicine. (g) I thought that the caffeine is suppose to ward off dementia. And the antioxidants would keep you longer. And alcohol in moderation was supposed to keep your cardio system young promoting blood flow and oxigenation. Which is supposed to keep u young. But now they're both bad according to the board. Sometimes I wish I can jump ahead 50 years to find out what the real story is, rather than constantly get whiplashed by our current Medieval understanding of health, diet and medicine.

I think it just goes to show you how little we really know how the human body works. One thing I've learned over the past 10 years is not to be dogmatic about any particular diet/or scientific study. I used to think veganism was the end-all final solution for health. Not so anymore, although I pretty much am still a vegan most of the time.

For example, this weekend DW made some chili with grass fed beef. Really good and it does not seem to bother me. Alcohol and caffeine. Oh my. If feel it immediately on the negative side. Caffeine will give me that rush for a couple of hours. But around 6-8 hours late, I get very irritable. It's a sign that my body is detoxing from the caffeine.

The proof is trying it and seeing how you feel, look and what your blood stats look like. I believe God made us marvelous self-healing bodies. We just have to give it the right ingredients and stop shoveling toxins into it.
