Deep Nutrition–A Very Important Book

by Stephen Mills March 27, 2011

For me the book shines like the stars when it gets really deep into why what most nutrition experts and the establishment recommend is flat out wrong.

The Modern Decline in Independent Thinking

The Internet was supposed to expose us to many new viewpoints, broaden our horizons, generate new ideas, and so on. To some degree it has but there is a very serious hidden danger in the fact that we are always connected to others. It’s not just that we are connected to others, it’s who and how we are connecting.

Should You Become an Expert?

by Stephen Mills March 1, 2011

My gut instinct and personal experience says that to achieve the best life satisfaction, maybe being an expert isn’t the right choice.
