2020 Poll

CO2e per Serving

When asked in a survey from Senator Cory Booker, “What issues are most important to you when picking a 2020 political candidate?”; I chose, “Climate Change”, and also wrote in the little box under “Other”,

“Vegan food choices, clean renewable energy (solar, wind), orchards, gardens and composting at all schools, military bases, public lands, prisons, hospitals, etc to stop climate change, feed needy, lead by example, and teach how food impacts climate footprint. Also grow hemp for oil, seeds, textiles, $. And end war.”

I replied to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s survey, “Go vegan for climate, health, economy, sustainability, hunger, peace, animals.”

Pain Management

My favorite foods which may help to naturally prevent and reverse pain include:

Fruit: Most fruit is about 80% water which is believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties. (Soak dried fruit before eating or blending in a smoothie.)

Water: Water is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Arugula: Dark-leafy greens like arugula are believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Celery: Celery is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Walnuts: Walnuts contain omega 3 fatty acids which are said to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Ginger: Ginger root may help stop the formation of inflammatory compounds, leukotrienes and prostaglandins, and break down acidity and inflammation in joint-fluids. Add to fruit smoothies. (Ginger relieved my vertigo.)

Curry: Curry contains turmeric which contains curcumin said to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

Chili: Chili peppers contain capsaicin which is said to stop the functioning of a hormone that transmits pain signals to the brain.
