  • Coherence-Based Self-Regulation

    There is no getting away from the stresses of modern life: the fast pace, the connectivity that brings us closer together yet simultaneously farther apart, the ease of access to health foods and bad news at the same time, the environmental toxins and air pollution, the growing financial demands, and the current unhealthy standards of nutrition and fad diets.

  • It's not often you hear people refer to "livestock farming" and "climate change" in a positive context. And even less so among tech entrepreneurs, as increasing numbers look to create meat-free, alternative food products with the hope of reducing the impact of the meat industry on the environment.

  • Net een dagga sigaret kan genoeg wees om verskeie erg negatiewe uitwerkings op die roker te hê. Behalwe dat hy hartkloppings en ‘n verlies aan spierkoördinasie kan ondervind, kan sy oë bloedbelope en sy gevoel van tyd en ruimte versteur word.

These two studies have been added to a long history of promising evidence in support of this diet, which will be discussed later.
