It Is Still A Green Economic Revolution

iowa-wind-turbineWe have a new President. Regulations will be changed, diminished or eliminated. What has not changed is the growing consumer demand for goods and services that align value with values.

What has not change is a disruptive, global technology revolution involving artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), renewable energy and batteries. We are on the cusp of these technologies disruptively reshaping our homes, cars, businesses, factories, farms and cities.

The question is whether a new U.S. government can retard or stop a global, multi-trillion dollar Green Economic Revolution? Will gutting the EPA and emissions regulations block the adoption of electric cars and solar power? Will America really shift back to coal as a result of this election? Continue reading

Shocking Insights On The Food We Eat

The Boomer Generation Diet by Bill RothA new study was published that found eating broccoli and avocados will make us look younger! And it gets even better. Research has found that the nicotinamide mono nucleotide in these foods, when consumed at a heavy dosage, delivers these additional benefits:

  • better skeletal muscle
  • improved liver and eye function
  • enhanced insulin sensitivity
  • improved immune function
  • increased physical activity levels.

Here’s some ever better news. Americans are eating more broccoli. The U.S. Agriculture Department estimates we eat about 8 pounds of broccoli per year. This is almost double our consumption of broccoli from 1990. Feel good about that when you have some broccoli this week!

BUT…now compare those 8 pounds of broccoli to the approximately ONE TON (1,996 pounds) of food we individually eat each year.

Some shocking insights on what we consume!

Even thought we are eating more healthy foods like broccoli we are still in a national weight crisis. Here are the facts that explain why:

  • We eat about a TON of food every year!
  • We consume 630 pounds of diary products. We are talking about milk, cheese, and ice cream. That represents 31% of the ton of food we eat annually.
  • The good news is that we eat 415 pounds of vegetables. The bad news is that most of that is corn and potatoes. Think french fries and corn on the comb slathered with butter. Not good for our health and weight loss.
  • We eat an equal amount of meat and grains. We consume 197 pounds of grains (bread) and 185 pounds of meat (beef, chicken, pork).
  • We consume almost as much sweetener as grains and meat! We consume 141 pounds of sweetener. Think soda.
