"It provides a scientific framework for the planetary ethic discussed in chapter 6. A meaningful ethic must be able to distinguish moral action from immoral or merely uninformed action. Essential for distinguishing moral action is the possibility of choice. An entity that does not possess the freedom to choose its course of action cannot be said to act morally or immorally: it merely acts. This is not the case for human beings who have a significant degree of freedom to choose."

"The vision of the world in which modern people place their trust is the one they consider scientific. This vision is based largely on the physics of Newton, the biology of Darwin, and the psychology of Freud. However, these conceptions have been overtaken by new discoveries. In light of the emerging insights, the universe is not a lifeless, soulless aggregate of inert chunks of matter, rather it resembles a living organism. Life is not a random accident, and the basic drives of the human psyche include far more than the drive for sex and self-gratification."

"This concept, underpinned by new scientific discoveries and wedded with traditional handicrafts, led to an entire series of technological innovations. These included the harnessing of the power of steam and later oil and the invention of mass production for mass markets. Europe, followed shortly by America, entered the industrial age. Thanks to an accelerating series of ever more powerful technological innovations sapiens became the dominant species on the planet. But this reign is not assured. In its present form, industrial civilization is not sustainable."

"This annex takes on the intriguing and—from a deep human perspective—extraordinarily important task of looking for a scientific explanation for ITC. It does so by reviewing an experience this writer had recently and exploring an explanation of it in light of Akashic field theory. THE EXPERIENCE April 7, 2007. I am sitting in a darkened room in the Italian town of Grosseto, together with a group of sixty-two other people. It is evening, and there is not a sound, other than the sounds of the shortwave band of a radio."

"But this was a test of the diet alone, and for scientific reasons, exercise was not to be part of it. At the end of the study period, everyone weighed in. In just 12 weeks, the average participant had lost 16 pounds. Their fasting blood sugar had dropped 28 percent. Two-thirds of the participants on diabetes medications were able to reduce or discontinue them in that short period of time.6 All this occurred without any limits on calories, portions, or carbohydrates and without exercise."

"It was written for doctors and shows them the scientific rationale for the diet presented in this book, the evidence behind it, and what they can anticipate. You can help by holding up your end of the partnership. That means following your doctor's advice (provided it is sound and you agree with it), letting him know how you are doing, calling him promptly if your blood glucose drops below 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/l) or whatever other criterion he sets, and taking a multivitamin so he will not worry about you developing any sort of deficiency."

"Chocolate's addictive qualities have long been recognized in psychiatric journals. In scientific studies, the most ardent chocoholics' desire falls away when they are treated with opiate-blocking drugs. These experiments show that it is not simply taste or mouthfeel that keeps us hooked. Chocolate also appears to have mild effects on our brains. Chocolate's attraction is not due simply to its sweetness. After all, no true chocolate lover would be satisfied with sugar alone. Chocolate also contains caffeine, theobromine, and phenylethylamine."

"There is actually a fascinating body of scientific literature on diet and arthritis, which I summarized in an earlier book, Foods That Fight Pain.) The best part of the story: Nancy's experience is not unusual for people who make the diet changes you will read about shortly. Vance Vance was just 31 years old when he was diagnosed with diabetes. He had just changed to a new doctor, and the diagnosis came after a routine blood test. Both of his mother's parents had had the disease, but up until that point, Vance had been in more or less good health."

"The ESCOP (European scientific Cooperative for Phytotherapy) has published separate monographs for Taraxaci folium and Taraxaci radix [11], wherein the leaf drug is indicated as an adjunct therapy for diseases where enhanced diuresis is desirable (e.g. prevention of renal gravel and rheumatism), and the root drug is indicated for loss of appetite, dyspepsia, and for restoration of disturbed hepatic and biliary function. Indications of the cholagogic and diuretic actions of the drug can be found in older animal experiments [12—15] and clinical studies [15, 16]."

"It is ironic that such strident claims of being scientific have been made on the basis of testing that is so unscientific, riddled with so many flagrant violations of the scientific method and careful scientific reasoning. David Healy of the North Wales College of Medicine observes that "these studies are not scientific studies; they are simply studies required for [FDA] registration purposes aimed at demonstrating that in some population an effect can be demonstrated."

"Natural Progesterone Facts Though progesterone was discovered more than seventy years ago, it has only recently been making headlines in scientific journals. An eloquent 2007 article in Endocrine Review summarizes its many beneficial effects, such as its ability to reduce brain damage, limit stroke, and prevent Parkinson's disease, seizures, depression, memory loss, and even alcohol addiction. Here are some highlights from this and other scientific journals: • Natural progesterone is made in a woman's brain throughout her lifetime."

"Bearberry may no longer be imported from eastern European countries due to its threatened status in the wild, and it is subject to EU trade directives requiring a scientific authority in the exporting country to issue a "non-detriment finding" report. Some of the supply in North America originates from the Russian Federation.

"A big part of becoming a doctor is learning to trust this scientific evidence enough to let it guide decisions that can have profound effects on vulnerable patients. The Pravachol article seemed likely to have the effect of exploiting this deeply ingrained trust. Had the purpose of the study truly been to assist doctors in reducing their patients' risk of stroke, it certainly would have mentioned other proven approaches to achieve that goal."

"The more closely I scrutinized these data on the cardiovascular complications in the VIGOR study, the more I learned about how data can be manipulated to color the "scientific evidence" that is so trusted by doctors and the public. The November 2000 NEJM article focused most of its discussion about cardiovascular risk on heart attacks alone, although heart attacks had not been identified in the research plan as a specific cardiovascular complication to be monitored by itself."

"Association h/ar-ns o^Risfc in /f/bb-PwUin Oi^ts "Despite their popularity, high-protein diets aren't making good on their promise of long-term weight loss," says a new scientific advisory from the American Heart Association. Moreover, the AHA says the diets are a health risk for people who stay on them beyond short periods of time. "In general, quick weight-loss diets don't work for most people," says Robert H. Eckel, M.D., co-author of a scientific advisory from the AHAs nutrition committee. "

"As I got into the review of the scientific evidence, I became increasingly puzzled. The authors praised both drugs, stating that they cause "significantly fewer serious gastrointestinal adverse events than does treatment with non-selective NSAIDs." I pulled the "Dear Healthcare Provider" letter out of my files to make sure that my recollection of its wording was accurate. It was. After going over the language very carefully, I realized that this review article had taken drug salesmanship into new territory."

"From a scientific perspective, some would argue that this unsought, ambient, lucid dream precognitive information suffers from the same "retro-cognitive" or after-the-fact awareness attributed to many reported precognitive dreams. Many critics of apparent precognitive dreams suggest that since the dreamer sees the connection to the dream only after the fact, sometimes, weeks, months, or years later, the dreamer may, knowingly or unknowingly, shape the dream recall to conform to the waking situation."
- Robert Waggoner, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self (Get the book.)

"Publishing his work in more broadly read scientific journals, LaBerge became strongly identified with this exciting discovery and a leader in its continued research. Back in Kansas, each night before I went to sleep I would look at my hands and remind myself that I wished to see my hands in my dreams. Of course anyone who tries this will soon discover that staring at your hands for more than ten seconds is quite boring. When you already feel sleepy, it takes real effort to concentrate."

- Robert Waggoner, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self (Get the book.)

"An occasional lucid dreamer himself, Hobson suggests that "an MRI study of lucid and non-lucid dreaming is a highly desirable next step in the scientific study of consciousness. The technical obstacles to the realization of such an experiment are formidable but the main obstacle is political and philosophical." Hobson observes, "Many scientists rule out any study of subjective experience especially one as dubious and evanescent as lucid dreaming."2 Overcoming the barriers of science, theory, and culture may be the constant burden of any proven paradoxical experience such as lucid dreaming."

- Robert Waggoner, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self (Get the book.)

"However, he was quick to point out the "objective, matter of fact, scientific" observations made by the hidden observer were suggestive of some type of inner conscious awareness.16 Hilgard's analysis suggested that psychology should refocus on earlier notions of co-conscious awareness, see hypnosis as an experimental procedure to probe this, further investigate attention and its parallel processing, and determine if the "central control mechanism" of awareness has "two aspects"—a monitoring function and an executive or decisive, organizing, and goal-directing function."

"As the "-ism" suggests, it is not a scientific subject but an ideology. Ideologies are ways of organizing large swaths of life and experience under a set of shared but unexamined assumptions. This quality makes an ideology particularly hard to see, at least while it's still exerting its hold on your culture. A reigning ideology is a little like the weather—all pervasive and so virtually impossible to escape. Still, we can try. In the case of nutritionism, the widely shared but unexamined assumption is that the key to understanding food is indeed the nutrient."
- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"More than anything else in medical training, doctors are taught that good medical care is based upon a foundation of scientific evidence. I can remember well as a medical student, intern, and resident the daily exchange of photocopied journal articles as we went from patient to patient on hospital rounds. The latest articles from respected journals were accepted as the undisputed authority, defining good medicine and defending the decisions that had been made."
- John Abramson, Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine (P.S.) (Get the book.)

"And so like a large gray cloud, a great Conspiracy of scientific Complexity has gathered around the simplest questions of nutrition—much to the advantage of everyone involved. Except perhaps the supposed beneficiary of all this nutritional advice: us, and our health and happiness as eaters. For the most important thing to know about the campaign to professionalize dietary advice is that it has not made us any healthier."
- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"I offer you this fairly scientific viewpoint to illustrate how science is, finally, catching up with what many, including indigenous peoples, have known all along. Corbin Harney, an elder and spiritual leader of the Western Shoshone peoples, says, "Everything has spirit. I don't care what it is. Water likes to talk to us. All you have to do is go sit by a creek somewhere, and it'll start singing to you. If you listen carefully, you can hear a voice in it. It's also important to go out and start talking to trees."

"Part of what drove my grandparents' food culture from the American table was official scientific opinion, which, beginning in the 1960s, decided that animal fat was a deadly substance. And then there were the food manufacturers, which stood to make very little money from my grandmother's cooking, because she was doing so much of it from scratch— up to and including rendering her own cooking fats. Amplifying the "latest science," they managed to sell her daughter on the virtues of hydrogenated vegetable oils, the ones that we're now learning may be, well, deadly substances."

"Before we announced our findings and committed to a more thorough research trip, however, Michel had one more task to satisfy his scientific skepticism. We had an appointment to descend into the basement of the national archives and double-check the age of each person we met in Nicoya. The process involved crosschecking each subject's national identification number to the corresponding entry in a sequentially numbered ledger located in the archive. This sort of eye-glazing detail made me hate science as a kid, but here we were about to enter the tomb containing the "Holy Grail" of data."

"In 2003, the FDA allowed a "qualified health claim" that read: "Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease." Studies have indicated that nuts may help protect the heart by reducing total blood cholesterol levels. In a large, ongoing population study from Harvard University's School of Public Health, people who often ate nuts had lower risks of coronary heart disease than those who rarely or never ate nuts."

"But they wouldn't hold much scientific sway. You can't generalize about a whole population from a few stories. That's where Dr. Nobuyoshi Hirose, one of Japan's foremost centenarian researchers, came in. Earlier during my stay in Tokyo, Greg had set up a dinner with Dr. Hirose. A short, amiable scholar with an odd sense of humor and a wheezing laugh, Hirose described 15 years of centenarian research. During the past 40 years, he said, Japan's centenarian population had mushroomed. I asked him if he could explain why."

"I knew the question wasn't scientific, but sometimes it provoked insightful answers. "I used to be very beautiful," Kamada replied. "I had hair that came down to my waist. It took me a long time to realize that beauty is within. It comes from not worrying so much about your own problems. Sometimes you can best take care of yourself by taking care of others." "Anything else?" "Eat your vegetables, have a positive outlook, be kind to people, and smile." I looked over at Craig, who was sitting next to me, to see what he thought of her response. "
