Food again, well sort of 13 y
The issue of food has come up again because I am getting increasingly annoyed at people who get sick from bad diets, plus I sometimes have to compromise to socialise.
I know someone that has watched the Processed people DVD and the truth has struck home with them. Once you know this stuff there’s no turning back.
If you like meat and processed food you are li... read more

Why do we need haircuts? 13 y
Recently I looked at "naturalising" my hair by washing it in water only, to retain the oils. I then wondered why we had to cut our hair and shave, no other animals do.
Lately I have been experimenting with less / minimal usage of petrochemical products such as shampoo and soaps. It started not from any cosmetic reason, but I noticed that humans tend to be short o... read more
