So while I have not experienced the click and actually don't wish to as it seems a very hard and all consuming path, I very much respect and support those who have.
Perhaps in a similar way to Paul describes how he feels about people who choose a vegan lifestyle. A noble path that is not for everyone.
One thing that struck me while listening to part 3 was Paul's desire to have a place so clean and food so healthy and nutritious that someone with cancer could come and live there and their cancer would just resolve on its own.
I have been studying recently about the effects of excess omega 6 fats in our diets and how there is more and more research showing that they are one of the major causes of diseases like macular degeneration, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Populations that have very little omega 6 in their diets have very low rates of these diseases and as the amounts of omega 6 go up so do the rates of the diseases.
Macular degeneration can be haulted by removing omega 6 from the diet.
Lab rodents actually won't develop cancers unless also fed a special diet high in omega 6. When they are using them for studying the causes and treatments for cancers.
Cardiovascular disease was almost unheard of before the rates of omega 6 consumptions began to go up.
Omega 6 is primarily from manufactured seed oils. Corn, soy, canola, sunflower, etc. Those oils being organic or not doesn't effect the disease rates.
The article below does a better job of explaining it than I probably could.
Love the podcasts and thanks for all you do!
