Vagus Nerve Stimulation   Stefan Chmelik, CEO BioSelf Technology Additional text by by Ann Freeman   Hummingbirds are a mystery. They are incredibly small, and their hearts beat incredibly fast.

posted on 23rd February 2012 by Stefan Chmelik

That stuff from a carton is milk right? Perhaps in the most general sort of way, a bit like a cheese strings might be called ‘cheese’ or a fish stick ‘fish’. The white liquid referred to above bears only a passing resemblance to what our grand parents would have called ‘milk’, a nod in the direction of the secretions produced by mammary glands, before it has been mechanical and biochemically altered into something that one can, at best, describe as a ‘milk-like’ substance, to mis-quote Michael Pollan. This article intends to provide the case for why it is the industrialisation of milk rather than milk itself that is the problem for many people, and why cultural bias is the basis for much of the TCM abhorrence of dairy.
