    What prompted me to post that was Prof. Christopher Exley from Keele University. His face lit up when he talked about his 15 km BIKE commute which was a 30 second segment in his introduction in the video. Anyway, he has an hour long talk and short videos from several conferences available on Youtube that I find interesting and helpful. As he mentioned, Aluminum is ubiquitous like Silicon and Oxygen.

    This is The Age of Aluminum trailer. Christopher Exley is the one wearing a black T-shirt, eyeglasses, long hair.

    "Throughout." I also push for literacy. Neither seems to be catching on with you. So what?

    Cycling is a more effective anti-depessant than drugs.

    At least that's what I found.

    This can be a helpful diagram.

    erik:Just going to throw this out there: the average tuna sandwich has more mercury than a vaccine.

    As for aluminum, it definitely has a toxicity, but so does almost every metal we use. Good luck getting through life avoiding every toxic metal. I generally ignore anything Mercola says or approves of, and I would go the same route here. You can find a medically minded discussion of aluminum toxicity here:

    Thanks, eric. The link you shared had similar info from other sites I visited. I discovered another documentary called "The Dirty Secret" which is also about the Toxicity of Aluminum (used in water purification, cosmetics, medication, and vaccines). Unfortunately, it is all in German.

    I am proof, that one can bulk up on a vegan diet.

    Testosterone poisoned I guess.

    THE AGE OF ALUMINUM (Austria/Germany, 2013, 90 min.) was directed by Bert Ehgartner from Austria. The film is based on his book Dirty Little Secret: The Aluminum Files

    I think SLOMO's slow skating/rollerblading principles also applies to bicycling: It is that feeling of flying and being connected to nature.

    So if you see him gliding along the Pacific Beach boardwalk give him a high five.


    Slomo: Why You See a Retired Doctor Skating Around San Diego Every Day

    Dr. John Kitchin quit a medical career to pursue his passion: skating along the boardwalk of San Diego’s Pacific Beach. He calls himself “Slomo.”

    the irony is he is wearing speed skates

    The bigger inline skate wheels also makes it possible for a smoother glide
