    Raw v.s. Cooked Protein ?

    There is lots of science out there that says all kinds of conflicting things. Long story short......amino acids make good building blocks, not a good source of energy. Experiements done on lab rats are usually done with levels (comparitively speaking) that far exceed what humans consume...

    Raw v.s. Cooked Protein ?

    Like i said in my previous post, cooking just starts the protein denaturing process that is continued in the stomach and intestines. If it's illness you're worried about, the problem most people have is cross contamination during food preparation and not storing food at it's optimal...

    Raw v.s. Cooked Protein ?

    Cooking denatures the protein strands to facilitate digestion. It also "cooks" some of the nutrients......not to the point they are completely lost. The acid in your stomach also denatures protein so it can be further digested. Enzymes connect with the protein unfurling them into component amino...

    Canada? What the heck do they know?

    First, let me preface my post by saying that I am not a physician. However I have acquaintances that are, as well as friends that work in the healthcare field. I also practice shiatsu so I get to talk to my share of hurtin people. I numbered your post so that i could address some of the points...

    Canada? What the heck do they know?

    You're right, Canada does not have enough doctors.....and it's a shame. The idea behind the walk-in clinic is not to provide you with primary care.....that is supposed to be the job of your general physician. Getting a GP is a difficult task....considering some of them have over 2500 patients...

    Canada? What the heck do they know?

    Canada? What the heck do they know?

    I hear stories like this all of the time....it makes me wonder how many of them are true. My grandfather was 79 and needed hip replacement.......took 2 weeks to get him in.......didnt cost him a dime. The same grandfather at age 70 went in to get looked at because he had a strange back ache...

    Labor Union Myths By Bob Hubbard

    I understand where you are coming from, Bob. When I first joined the union I was on a 1 year probation.....which meant at any time i could be let go from a job without reason and kicked out of the union membership for violation of it's rules. I thought that was a load of BS (just for the...

    Labor Union Myths By Bob Hubbard

    Bob, i know you say you don't have a choice. You have the choice to move. Not all unions are political organizations....but doesn't it make sense to support the politics that protect its members? You make it sound as if Teamsters and union members aren't smart enough to do anything of value...

    Labor Union Myths By Bob Hubbard

    The unions in Canada operate very similarly. I am a member of a "skilled trades union", and while I don't agree with everything that happens within our 'local', they do represent us the way we want to be represented (mostly) because the same guys once worked in the field. They ensure fair pay...

    Labor Union Myths By Bob Hubbard

    so, a person with a phys ed. degree is not worth as much as a person with a science degree? care to elaborate? is the lower rate of pay justified by the amount of actual teaching experience? Teaching is a craft that must be learned in addition to the actual subject being taught......yes...

    I'm Not Dude!

    I think it's pretty nutty to disrespect the police. If a police officer gives you an order.....you follow it.

    I'm Not Dude!

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you......... there is some scripture that gives one pause for thought. I guess the kid was getting what he was giving.
