Saturday was a beautifull day which I spent manning Black Belt Academy's booth at the Exeter Fall Festival , got to meet lots of great people , who I look forward to working with at the Academy .
A couple of interesting notes in the news , the first being that researchers looked at almost a thousand mummies from South America and Egypt and discovered only a handfull that had suffered with cancer , cancer that now accounts for nearly one in three deaths !
The study showed the disease rate has risen dramatically since the industrial revolution , in particular childhood cancers , proving that the rise is not simply from living longer.
The reasearchers state that there is nothing in a natural enviroment that can cause cancer - that cancer comes down to pollution and changes in our diet .
And speaking of diet by now you have probably heard about the Mc Donalds hamburger that didnt decompose - remember Len Foleys bionic burger video ? it was posted in 2007 , this video shows a guy who bought his Mc Donalds burger in 1989 that still haven't decomposed in over two decades !

Just more evidence that the closer we eat to how are ancestors ate , the better off we are.
