Where do you get your protein from if you don't eat meat?

From Dr. John McDougall http://www.drmcdougall.com/: "The short answer is, if you eat a well rounded starch based, plant based diet, you don't have to worry about it. Plants have all the protein you need. In fact, too much protein from a meat based diet taxes your kidneys, bones, and other organs." The picture is Dr. McDougall's family.

Chemo/radiation useful?

I asked John McDougall, MD this question: "Re cancer: Are there any circumstances in which you would recommend chemo or radiation?" I was actually surprised at his answer. This was his reply: "Yes - but in many diseases (cancers) these tools have limited ability to change the course of the disease favorably. And the treatments are so toxic and costly. Radiation can control local disease. Chemo works for problems like leukemia."

Baking potatoes in the driveway in Minnesota on 12/21/12

As I've mentioned in previous entries, I am a solar cook. I have 4 different types of solar cookers. 3 different types of ovens plus a parabola. The parabola looks like a TV satellite dish, and works on the same principle as a magnifying glass in the sun burning from concentrated light. It is truly amazing. I can boil 2 cups of water in about 15 minutes in the sun using it. I place a dutch oven on the parabola and bake potatoes and other vegetables. Yesterday was December 21, the day of the year when the sun is the lowest in the sky. Now the sun will start to make its way higher in the sky a little more each day. It was a beautiful solar cooking day- no clouds in the sky. It was cold- about 9 degrees above zero when I placed the spuds in the dutch oven on the parabola in the driveway. It took about 1 and 1/2 hours for 2 very large red potatoes to be cooked perfectly. My wife Bev and I had them as part of our lunch. Solar cooked food is cooked by infrared heat from the sun. It usually cooks at about 250 degrees, sometimes as high as 325 degrees, sometimes lower than 250. For food to cook, the temperature has to be at least 180 degrees. Because of being cooked at a lower temperature as compared to a conventional oven in the house, there is less nutrient loss/better flavor. Solar food tastes great, and is better for you. You should taste solar cooked sweet corn!
