The “Vitamins Are Dangerous” Propaganda

by Leisa on October 20, 2015

When the president of the NSW branch of the Australian Medical Association is called upon to give his “expert” opinion on the “serious health risks” of vitamins and supplements (because we all know how much training medical doctors do on health and nutrition), on a morning national television program, you have to wonder about the

The “New Boom” – Cattle As A Commodity

by Leisa on October 18, 2015

From Sixty Minutes: “There’s a new boom sweeping across Australia and it’s attracting the shrewdest brains and fattest wallets in the land. It’s beef – it has been branded the new iron ore, and it’s big business. Where mining was the only show in town, now, the cattle industry is riding high. After years of

Open Mining Pit

I saw a very disturbing interview about the Abbott government’s proposal to change laws to prevent environmental challenges to large developments on the 7.30 Report two nights ago.

Fear-mongering: The Flu Vaccine Farce

by Leisa on June 15, 2015

There are many medical procedures and tests that I am quite sure that I will never partake of – mammograms are one of them, the Gardisil vaccine another, and one of the most ridiculous of all that I am quite certain I will never, ever subject myself to – the flu vaccine. The flu vaccine

Juicing Versus Supplements

by Leisa on May 26, 2015

I love juicing. Fresh juices are my favourite things to drink, and every single day I have about a litre of fresh juice – combinations such as beetroot, celery, lemon, apple and ginger or cucumber, mint, pineapple, kale and lemon.

Why I Don’t Support #BoycottBali

by Leisa on May 4, 2015
