My cute little Eskimo"
Cute little Eskimos (Inuit Indians)
are crippled with osteoporosis by age
40 despite the fact that each eats an
average of 3,500 milligrams per day of
calcium. I told that to a group of
people in Alberta this weekend who
are each advised (by the Canadian
Dairy Board) to consume 1,000
milligrams per day of calcium.
I've been a travelin' man.
It's been a tough few weeks for all
Americans. For me, flying is no longer
fun. I've taken off and landed twelve
times since the WTC horror, and airports
have become my least favorite places to
be. Increased security, searches of
luggage, and scanning of my body, lift
arms, spread legs, cancelled flights,
long delays, fears of flying, bags of
peanuts and pretzels instead of the
traditional horrible airplane food
that I never thought I'd miss
This past weekend I spoke before
enthusiastic groups of people in Los
Angeles and Edmonton, Canada. I also
debated Canada's dairy nutritionist.
My suggestion to the audience was to
try a simple experiment. Eliminate all
milk and dairy for just seven days. During
that period, the average cheese eater
expels four quarts of mucus. Bowel
movements improve. So do energy levels.
An internal fog lifts from one's body.
My adversay's laughable response:
"If you discontinue milk and cheese
consumption for just one week, you
would be placing your body in grave
Even the mediator laughed at that absurdity.
Next weekend I'll be lecturing in North
Carolina. The week after that, New York,
Washington, and the week after that,
I'm home for two days, and will probably
be playing catch-up tonight with thousands
of unanswered e-mails. I continue to read
one book per day, and am writing the treatment
for a new screenplay. So many things to do,
and so few hours in a day
