Anything Goes On Sunday: People Excercise In Venice Beach Homeless Nightmare Please Watch Video

I don’t understand how is it that cyclists, joggers, and runners are exercising in the middle of so much filth. It cannot be healthy to be breathing that air, seeing that kind of trash, rats, and feces of the homeless people.

I would definitely NOT ride my bike in any place like that ever. We shouldn’t get used to practicing our favorite exercise in the middle of that kind of environment.

When we practice a sport, we have to take care of our physiological, anatomical, and mental functions. We need to take care of our well-being. And we shouldn’t get used to seeing people living in squalor, becoming desensitized.

Humanism is a way of thinking about the world. In modern times, humanism is close to secularism. It refers to a non-theistic approach to life, looking to science instead of religious dogma in order to understand the world. The term was made widely known by scientists in the mid-20th century.

A true Humanist lives according to the Golden Rule of Humanism, which means trying to empathize with other people, including those who may be very different from us, thinking differently from us, having beliefs we don’t have, etc.

Are you ready for Soylent Green, 2022?

In the matrix, it was their best guess what year it was. They weren’t exactly sure and the calculated estimated time was 2100. It could’ve easily been 2300, but the year didn’t matter considering the current situation.

I don’t think we are going to make it to the planet of the apes at the rate we’re going lol. We have already experienced ideocracy and continue to experience idiocracy. Many didn’t survive, like The Puritans in Massachussets in the 1600’s

Aristotle was an advocate of reason. He stood for material truth. He was not so interested in Plato’s arguments that claim truth is more a spiritual ideal and not a material reality. Aristotle is called the father of science for that reason. He studied everything, observed how things worked.

Cancer is one of the main causes of mortality worldwide.

In 20018, 8 million deaths were recorded as a result of malignant diseases, and this figure is estimated to reach 11 million by 2030.

I am seeing more breast cancer in men in my consultations.  This is due to several factors:
History of radiation exposure of the chest
Enlargement of breasts (called gynecomastia) from drug or hormone treatments, or even some infections and poisons.
A rare genetic condition called Klinefelter’s syndrome
Severe liver disease, called cirrhosis
Diseases of the testicles such as mumps orchitis, a testicular injury, or an undescended testicle.

Prevention is the key: avoid risk factors, like smoking, drinking alcohol excessively, breastfeed if possible, be active, eat healthy.

Early detection can save your life: check with your family doctor every year. If you are at high risk attend medical consultations twice a year for your doctor to do a breast examination and ask questions. Practice breast self-exam regularly.
