  • the bananapost was weird but overripe brown bananas are more nutritious than green or yellow bananas. I remember back in the day with the crazy marathons and walks here in the Netherlands the participants would usually eat brownish bananas instead of normal yellow for this very reason.

  • Dr. Mike, I have to defend lemon juice as a deodorant!! It's THE ONLY THING that works for me to prevent BO. Nothing else does. (I've switched to diluted citric acid though, because lemon juice is too sticky & doesn't smell nice). I think it's either the lower pH that it creates locally in my armpit, which inhibits bacterial growth throughout the day (whenever I sweat, the water in the sweat reactivates some of the dried acid on my skin), or the acid neutralises the sweaty smell, the same way lemon juice works against smelly proteins in fish etc. Either way, it works! Don't know what the coconut oil is supposed to do though... may be it's supposed to protect your skin, since the acid is quite aggressive. It's also incredibly insensitive to tell someone with BO to just wash their armpits. As if I can do that each time I break a sweat or develop smelly armpits. Imagine how many times I'd have to rush to the bathroom at work or when I'm not at home. I'd also have to constantly change my top, how many pieces of clothing do you expect me to carry around with me? Never mind that even without noticeable sweating, I can still always detect an unpleasant odor. And washing the skin doesn't even remove it, so... Citric acid works wonders against this. (and I don't have hyperhidrosis or any other condition, I don't even have particularly strong BO where my environment would notice or anything like that... I just develop BO very quickly and I find it particularly pungent in my case, even though it's not necessarily strong)

  • Though I agree with you I've got to say that most food nowadays has lost more than 70% of their minerals compared to food in the 70s which are vital for our body to function properly. Today you'd have to eat 10x the amount of broccoli than in the 70s. That's because of industrial farming and artifical growth. Plants don't have enough time anymore to get their minerals out of the ground. So no matter what you eat you will have a lack of minerals in your body. That's when your body starts using reservoirs to build certain minerals by itself. Cink, k2, and so on. Taken from hair, skin, teeth etc. The effects aren't too big but noticeable. Loss of hair, cramps, nails that break fast, bad sleep, you name it. But here isn't the solution essential oils and coconuts under your arms but better controlled farming, organic food, and in the meantime natural supplements like seaweed. It's full of minerals. Same minerals as in our "normal" vegetables.
