June 7th - Raymond Francis; Founder: Beyond Health - Never be Fat Again. Author of "Never be Sick Again" returns to the show to speak about his new book and his non-profit venture, The Project to End Disease.
http://BeyondHealth.com
Host: Julie and Martin Matthews
Martin's note: Listeners learn that by understanding what's going on in their bodies, they can invite HEALTH into their lives and Never be Fat Again. Overweight is a disease, and there are two causes - Deficiency (cells are not getting what they need); or Toxicity,(cells are being poisoned by something they do not need). We speak about how low-fat, no-fat products can actually make you fatter and how common chemical toxins, found in processed foods, alter the expression of weight-control genes.
The body already knows how to balance its weight, it just needs a fighting chance Raymond says - anyone can break their Fat Cycle in just 6 weeks.

http://www.feingold.org/BIOS/biojane.html
Host: Julie Matthews

Julie's note:
I really wish people could understand the importance of AVOIDING the harmful chemicals in the "foods" we are allowed (by government) to eat. With today's health challenges affecting the bodies and minds or our masses, Jane's critical research pinpoints many of the instigators - that, when removed from one's diet have shown dramatic positive results. Much aggresive behavior is connected to inner states of discomfort, exacerbated by the complex and not fully understood biochemical reactions to the artificial ingreadients in many of America's coveted, though offending, foods.

The Raging Grannies
http://www.PeninsulaRagingGrannies.org
Martin's note: These ladies are a hoot! Political activism at any age, in fact...you've got to take what they say seriously - they're grannies! They love you with a smile and a plate of cookies, then connect about the truth. They know their stuff and they can sing a tune too! Learn, laugh, and get inspired by their words and expressions.
