Science has made huge strides in studying our brains. Our current culture ignores the really important fact that how we think affects our bodies and health. We are fed poisonous ideas constantly.
Yet science tells us that how we think is crucial to happiness and health.
Our public health people are a perfect example of mind poisoners.
Fancy telling women to think of their risk of breast cancer “every time” they pour a glass of wine! What WAS she thinking?
A new/old meme that is being used more and more as we follow Tobacco Control fear strategies in Public Health. It is the “there is no safe level” quote.
Tobacco Control issued statements to say “there is no safe level of smoking” – which even then, someone should have pulled them up for, because it is simply not true! Science (real science) tells us that if you stop smoking heavily in your thirties, you’ve got as good a chance as any non smoker of living a healthy and long life. The same is true for those who smoke occasionally.
So now Dame Sally, tells us “There is no safe level of drinking”.
There’s been a lot of scornful and derisive comment in the Media about Dame Sally’s ideas. But of course she’s our Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer. Does she know nothing about poisoning minds?
Rather than enjoying the moment – THIS moment, each moment, we should be thinking of the risks involved instead?
We know that genes get switched on or off according to everything we do in life. Constantly living in fear about “safe levels”, “risks”, “health”, “political correctness” added to all the other difficulties of simply being human, is more than enough to make us unhealthy, worried adults for life. We might be healthier without Public Health poisoning our minds with fear.
Shame on them. Do they not know about Mindfulness?
Here is a 2013 video of Scientists discussing Mindfulness according to their latest findings. It is an hour long, but is well worth the watch. It’s the antidote to all the Dame Sally mind poisoners in our world.
