(NaturalNews) To all you peeps out there that survived the 30's, 40's 50's 60's and 70's; this is our entry into Ripley's history.

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles and were not restricted from opening doors or cabinets.

When we rode our bikes we had no helmets, not to mention the risks we took hitchhiking.

As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags and riding in the back of pick-up truck on a warm day was a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle and there was no such thing as fluoride.

We shared one soda with four friends, all drinking from the same bottle and no one died from this.

We ate Twinkies, Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles, JUJUBES, jellybeans, red licorice sticks, Hostess creamed-filled cupcakes, white bread with butter and drank Kool-Aid, but were never over-weight because we were always playing outside.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day as long as we were back home when the streetlights came on and our parents never freaked out or called the cops despite not being able to reach us all day.

We would spend hours building go-carts out of old boxes and roller skates and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes, trees, cars and buildings, we figured it out.

We never had Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, or video games. We never had 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's. We had no surround-sound, CD's, cell phones, personal computers, Internet, or chat rooms.

We had friends and we went outside to find them.

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and never, ever, was there a lawsuit from this. And doctors routinely made house calls.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms never lived in us forever.

We were given BB guns as a birthday gift and we played stickball on the sides of building by drawing a strike zone on the building and stoopball. And, despite being told it would happen, we never got our eyes poked out or hit by a car

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell or just walked in and talked to them. And their mom's always gave us milk and cookies.

If we didn't make a Little League team, we dealt with the disappointment and moved on. Imagine that!

The idea of our parents bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of because they always sided with the law.

We never had GMO's laden with pesticides and we had no Monsanto. When we saw the movie "Soylent Green" in 1973, which was a futuristic depiction of NYC in 2022, with a population of 40 million and where the food supply was the dead people being fed back to the living, we could not relate to 2022. Now it is a frightening 10 years away and the horror of what's to come scares the crap out of us.

Those generations produced some of the best minds, risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever and the past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all. If you are one of them, I take my hat off to you.

You might want to share this with others who have had the good fortune to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good!

And while you're at it, let your kids know how brave, lucky and fortunate their parents were. Sure makes you want to a good look at today, doesn't it?

And, in closing, with hurricanes, tornadoes, fires out of control, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, nuclear disasters, the threat of bird flu, Gardasil vaccines now being mandated for boys, terrorist attacks, taxation out of control, genetically modified politicians, same sex marriage being legalized, riots and OCCUPY this and OCCUPY that and more of our Constitutional rights being stripped away from us on a daily basis, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?


About the author:
I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, the public health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the tricks.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals (they are harvested from the pine trees in Louisiana) in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 4 years later, 18 cases, so far, of autism have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, osteoarthritis, joint pain, astigmatism, gum disease, increased sexual activity, heavy metal and radiation elimination, parasite elimination, free radicals elimination, faster athletic recovery time, increased blood circulation, reduced inflammation, resistance to getting the flu, reduction of wrinkles, allergy reduction, reduced PMS and monthly period pain, nausea, migraines and so much more. And it's only possible because of the oxygen it releases that floods the cells of the body. The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website - www.healthtalkhawaii.com -.
My book, "a Sane Diet For An Insane World", has been published. It can be viewed at
