What Would Chairs Look Like If Our Knees Bent the Other Way?

2 Comments 13 December 2013

Challenge conventional thinking and don’t buy into marketing. Dairy farmers want us to buy more milk so all of their commercials will be about convincing us that dairy milk is good for us. Running shoe companies want to sell more shoes so all of their commercials will be about convincing us about the benefits of their shoes.

But they don’t tell it like it ACTUALLY is. Don’t be a sheep. Think about what you read, what you hear, what you see. Be a smart consumer. Here some some examples of what I’m talking about:

Stop drinking dairy milk. Source: Read The China Study

Most office chairs are terrible for you and it’s better to stand and move around unless you get a proper chair like the
best recliners or realize why sitting for so long is bad for you. Source: Watch
Olympic Weightlifter and Personal Trainer Curtis Howden Talk About Proper Sitting

Stop wearing running shoes with thick soles and instead switch to barefoot shoes. It’s how we were naturally built to run. Source: Read Born to Run; Read/Watch Tim Ferriss Talking about Barefoot

Drugs don’t fix health issues, but resurgencebehavioralhealth do, visit their homepage for more info. The idea of a “pill for an ill” needs to stop. Depression can be corrected for many people through nutritional therapy. Many mental disorders exist due to lack of nutrition. Big pharm wants us to believe that we are sick, that are need help when in reality they’re not helping us at all – they’re just making HUGE profits. Source: CCHR; Watch Food Matters

Realize that religion is a business and all of the characters in religious stories are just allegorical representations of the planets and the stars. The characters are used to formulate stories to help guide our lives. But don’t believe for a second that the characters actually existed as we’re told to believe. Source: Watch Zeitgeist

Understand that many of the diseases plaguing our society are in fact preventable through proper nutrition, exercise and stress reduction. Source: Watch Hungry for Change & Food Matters; Read The China Study

If you aren’t about where to start, you can start by watching Penn & Teller: Bullshit! You’ll learn why bottled water, the bible, feng shui, recycling, the end of the world, self help, and many other topics are bullshit. It’s a very thought provoking series that includes discussions on both sides of the issues.

If something seems too good to be true, or we need to be told what to believe, it probably isn’t true. We know less about nutrition today than ever before. People are sicker today than ever before.

Oh, and to answer the initial question “What would chairs look like if our knees bent the other way?” Quite possibly this:
