In one study, UWO researcher Dr.MacFabe was able to produce autism-like symptoms in rats by injecting them with a fatty acid produced [...]

The Truth About New Year’s Resolutions


Do you think using a different word for something can create a different outcome? For example, we hear so much about resolutions this time of year.  But we also know that, statistically, most New Year’s resolutions fail.  I believe one reason they fail is because they’re about changing things in ourselves, our lives, or our behaviour that we don’t like. There can be a lot of built-up negative emotion around something like that. Whereas feeling grateful for what we currently have (our starting point) seems to me like a much better place from which to ask for improvement. That’s why, personally, [...]

Your 2020 Fast-Start Plan


Happy New Year! Today’s tip is simple and straightforward, the way I like it.

If you want more out of 2020 – start there. Sound obvious?  Perhaps.  But here’s something else to think about: this is not only about choosing healthy options.  For instance, did you know [...]

Are You Toxic? (The Answer May Surprise You)


Cautionary tale today. A “chemical revolution” over the past 50 years has polluted nearly every aspect of our lives.
