#305 | MM - What You Should Know About Stevia & Monk Fruit

There are all sorts of “natural sweeteners” on the market, but we've got questions… How natural are they? Are they a healthy substitute to other sweeteners?First off, our preferred natural sweeteners are very minimally processed; honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar. Things like agave, cane sugar, rice syrup, etc. tend to be much more processed and therefore “empty calories.” Then there are the real garbage products like corn syrup and beat sugar (which are GMO, toxic foods) as well as synthetic sweeteners like aspartame, surculose, saccharin, etc. which can be toxic to the nervous system.Today we wanted to unpack a couple of other products that get slapped with the “natural sweetener” label - those derived from Stevia and Monk Fruit. We discuss the pros to these, the cons, and the bottom line recommendation.It's easy to group monk fruit and stevia together in this conversation since they (a) both come from whole plant foods (b) have naturally occurring super-sweet “glycosides” and (c) are processed to extract the glycosides to create “zero-calorie” natural sweeteners.If you'd like to join these conversations live, be sure to Subscribe to the Alter Health YouTube Channel! https://www.youtube.com/alterhealthSome highlights from today's MM episode...Stevia is a leafy shrub while monk fruit is a guard that grows on a vineBoth have naturally occurring glycosides that provide a sweet taste (setvioside and rebaudioside A or reb A in stevia and mogrosides in monk fruit)They are naturally sweet in their crude form, but also have bitter tastes as wellThese plants are processed through dozens of steps (up to 40 or more) that include bleaching and extraction via methanol and ethanol before getting the final glycoside extractBoth stevia and monk fruit products are 200 - 300 times sweeter than sugar (sucrose)The products are indeed “zero-calorie” since they mainly contain the sweet constituent and no other nutrition - therefore they have no impact on blood sugarStudies show stevia can have some detrimental effects on the gut microbiome (rat studies)Processed sweeteners such as these can dull sweet receptor tastebuds on the tongue while creating a supraphysiologic dopamine response to perpetuate sweet cravings and food addictionLinks to some more good stuff-  Join Alter Health on Locals: https://alterhealth.locals.com/- Cleanse with Us during the next Alter Health Cleanse: https://www.alter.health/cleanse- Work with us in the Thrive on Plants program: https://www.alter.health/thrive-on-plants- ATTN Health Practitioners!

They are angry because they're hungry.  Unfortunately, many calorie counters have an interest in punching someone who disagrees with them. These people will punch with their keyboards.  While some vegans are so vehement because of some type of trauma they experienced.  Then, keto people believe they can't have any carbs.  People are doing anything they can think of to drive a wedge.  We need a group of people who are willing to be curious and experiment.   [10:10] Dave Loves Banning Trolls on Social Media Who Are Angry About Fasting  Dave has taught 70,000 people how to do intermittent fasting for free.  Check out the Fast This Way Challenge: https://daveasprey.com/fast-this-way-challenge/. People can go twenty-four hours without being hungry.  Dave bans people from his social media channels who are shrill, angry, and tiny-minded. When you ban angry people, you will be left with a peaceful space for inquiry and curiosity.  [13:10] Stop Consuming Omega-6 Oils! Two Years Later, Your Body Will Recover  There are things you do that make you weak, and things you do make you strong. The first thing you need to do is stop eating omega-6 oils: canola, soy, and corn.  Your cell membrane is actually a whole bunch of tiny droplets of fat. It changes composition based on what you eat. Once you cut the oils out and two years have gone by, half of your cell membranes will have turned over and been made out of more stable, healthier fats. If you put butter and MCT in your coffee, you won't need as much of it after two years.  [18:25] Dave Gives Recommendations For Eating Out At Restaurants While Traveling  When eating at a restaurant, you must assume your food is being cooked in vegetable oil.  Dave is known for carrying grass-fed butter in his bag and whipping it out at restaurants.  When you travel, bring protein powder and amino acid powder.  When you're out at a restaurant, you won't have to worry about what to eat.  You can go 24 hours without eating, and you have protein powder if you need it.  Dave eats a lot of sushi; it's clean food.  [26:15] Dave Gives His Thoughts on Fish Oil and Why You Should Never Overdo It You don't want too much fish oil. There's plenty of evidence that small doses of fish oil are good for you.  Dave takes a gram a day. He weighs about 230 and is around 12% body fat. If you're pregnant, you need to dose DHA heavily. Your body will store DHA in your butt and your thighs. It will preferentially donate that DHA to your baby. Remember, large doses of DHA are inflammatory, and your body can't handle it.   [34:00] It's Time To Cut Out Artificial Flavors and Remember That All Plants Are Not Your Friends We underestimate what glyphosate contamination and things like food colorings, dyes, and artificial flavors do to our brain and hunger hormones. You need to cut out artificial flavors and dyes.  Plants are not all your friends.  If you go outside and just take a bite of the first plant you see, you'll probably die or at least get hospitalized; plants are inherently toxic to us. Oxalic acid from kale and raw spinach is a major cause of kidney stones and gout.  Remember, different people have different sensitivities.  [38:35] Junk Light Is Impacting Your Health - Get TrueDark For Better Sleep The circadian clock that tells all your organs to work together simultaneously is set primarily by light.  That's why Dave created TrueDark: Get True Dark glasses here: https://amzn.to/3NobA4g TrueDark wearers experience better concentration and deeper sleep when wearing their patented lenses.  His glasses will help with sleep quality, increased sleep length, increased focused performance, and decreased eye fatigue. [47:50] About Danger Coffee and The Importance of Remineralizing Your Body Everyone needs more trace minerals.  Regular coffee depletes your body of minerals and electrolytes, making you feel tired.  While on the other hand, Danger Coffee remineralizes your body with more than 50 trace minerals, nutrients, and electrolytes.

What’s Treading with Tire Review

Now more than ever, going green is permeating the industry. Automakers are required to meet certain sustainability requirements, which means everything that goes into creating a vehicle–ahem, the tires–are held to higher sustainability targets, too. Just ask Bridgestone, whose goal is to have 100% carbon neutrality and 100% renewable resources in its tires by 2050. So, how are they going to achieve that?Slowly but surely, the foundation for a more sustainable future is being laid out as you read this. Here's just one example: For more than a decade, Bridgestone has been researching the guayule plant to use as a domestic source of natural rubber, and now the first Firestone Firehawk race tire made with guayule natural rubber (grown and extracted at the company's guayule R&D facilities in Arizona) will debut at this year's Indy 500 on May 29. Just last month, the company partnered with LanzaTech, a carbon capture and transformation company, to co-develop the first dedicated end-of-life tire recycling process. To learn more about Bridgestone's guayule research and end-of-life tire recycling initiatives, we spoke with Bill Niaura, director of sustainable materials and circular economy for Bridgestone Americas Technology Center. In this episode of What's Treading with Tire Review, presented by AAPEX, Bill dives into why Bridgestone is investing in these various sustainability initiatives and how creating a circular economy is in the tiremaker's future. EPISODE OVERVIEW- An update on Bridgestone's research into guayule natural rubber (1:00)- Why tiremakers are investing in alternate sources of natural rubber (2:11)- How Bridgestone and LanzaTech will work together on end-of-life tire recycling and how the carbon transformation process starts from the guy of a rabbit (8:33)- How Bridgestone's relationship with its dealers will help its sustainability goals trickle down the tire industry (14:15)More on Bridgestone's sustainability goals: https://www.bridgestone.com/corporate/news/2021062901.htmlMore on AAPEX: www.aapexshow.comYou can also subscribe to What's Treading with Tire Review on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events   1780 It was on this day that much of New England was shrouded in darkness. In fact, many feared that Judgment Day had arrived And so this day became known as The Dark Day. During this day, the sun rose as per usual. But around 10 o'clock in the morning, the sky grew dark. So dark that there were reports of candle-lit lunches, and people stopped what they were doing to pray. The blackout spread from Portland, Maine, to New Jersey. Boston newspapers reported that chickens returned to their roosts after the darkness began, and animals returned to their places in the barn - even they knew that something odd was going on. Even General George Washington wrote about the dark day in his diary. The nature poet John Greenleaf Whittier (books about this person) wrote about the event in a poem. Twas on a May-day of the far-old years Seventeen hundred eighty, that there fell Over the bloom and sweet life of the spring, Over the fresh earth, and the heaven of noon, A horror of great darkness.' "Men prayed, and women wept; all ears grew sharp To hear the doom-blast of the trumpet shatter The black sky.   Instead of Judgment Day, it's now generally believed that the darkness stemmed from a fire out west. And the following night, on May 19th in 1780, New England was treated to a full moon that was said to be as red as blood set against the night sky - a spring to remember.   1864 Death of Nathaniel Hawthorne (books about this person), American novelist, and short-story writer. In May 1866, Nathaniel's sister Sophia was writing about The Wayside landscape in a letter to her friend, Annie Fields. She wrote: There is a beauty in May which there is not in July. After these latter rains, the glory of tender and deep greens surpasses all words . . . the walks — the paths look so nice, and there is no knowing what enormity of sauciness the weeds will arrive at by July.   In 1843, Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote a crazy short story that not many people know about today. The story was about a mad scientist who becomes obsessed about removing his wife Georgiana's birthmark. And so the scientist, concocts a remedy for the blemish and creates a solution using the leaves of geraniums. As his wife drinks this potion, her birthmark does fade away, but in the process, the mixture also kills her. Thus, she dies a perfect unblemished woman. And that's the end of this little known and very bizarre short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne.   1906 On this day, Country Life gave an update on the season of tulips. They wrote, The writer regards the season of Tulips as one of the brightest and happiest of the year. Daffodils still flutter in the wind, the first of the Roses are bursting their buds, and the whole air is filled with the scent of wayside of garden flowers. But it is the Tulip that gives the colour, splashes of crimson,scarlet, yellow, rose, white, and even black.  A black Tulip is a reality, and is known as The Sultan. It belongs to the race called Darwin, but we prefer the homely name of the May or Cottage Tulip. Dusky as the firm, short segments are, they have weird, strange beauty, which is as fascinating as the clear crimson of the greatest of all Tulips, Tulipa gesneriana major, which opens its big goblets to the sun and discloses a pool of inky blue at the base. A few years ago the May Tulips were seldom seen, but persistent reference to them has brought about a revolution: so much so, that one greets the Tulip with much the same affection as the Daffodil which precedes it. We believe it was in the Royal Gardens, Kew, that the Gesner and other Tulips were first planted in large beds, and the effect of their glorious colour we shall ever remember, it was a novel sight...   So there you go—an update on tulip season from 1906. And isn't it interesting to think about how tulips were perceived compared to the daffodil a little over a hundred years ago?   1934 Birth of Ruskin Bond (books about this person), Indian author of British descent. Ruskin's novels, The Room on the Roof and Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra, received critical acclaim and he's written hundreds of short stories, essays, and books for children. In The Room on the Roof, Ruskin wrote, I don't want to rot like mangoes at the end of the season, or burnout like the sun at the and of the day.  I cannot live like the gardener, the cook and water-carrier, doing the same task everyday of my life...  I want to be either somebody or nobody.  I don't want to be anybody. From Rain in the Mountains: Notes from the Himalayas, Ruskin wrote, Yes, I'd love to have a garden of my own--spacious, and full of everything that is fragrant and flowering. But if I don't succeed, never mind--I've still got the dream.   Finally, in his book, A Book of Simple Living: Brief Notes from the Hills, Ruskin wrote, Botanists have done their best to intimidate and confuse the nature lover. But we should not allow ourselves to be discouraged; we have as much right to the enjoyment of wild flowers as they. So I will disregard the botanist and I will go looking for the pretty flower that I have named Merry Heart. It is always nodding and dancing in the breeze. It is a happy flower, deserving of a happy, light name.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Modern Cottage Garden by Greg Loades This book came out in 2020, and the subtitle is A Fresh Approach to a Classic Style. This book is practical and inspirational - and if you are a fan of cottage gardens, then this is a book that you will want to have in your garden library. I love Greg's approach here because what he has done is come up with a blend between the New Perennial Movement and Classic Cottage Style - and he's integrated both of those concepts Into the looks that you see in real life gardens in this book. And so, as the reader, what you'll come away with are images of beautiful color in the garden, the use of grasses and native plants - in addition to Greg's thoughtful approach. Greg wants these gardens to be low maintenance and to offer many seasons of interest, which is the sweet spot for gardens nowadays. I will walk you through the table of contents, and then I'll give you a little excerpt from Greg's book. Greg starts with what he calls the roots of his book, which are both the traditional Cottage Garden and the New Perennial Garden. Greg takes you into a deep dive into both approaches. Then in the next section of his book, he talks about how to create a Modern Cottage Gardenn which, as I just mentioned, is a blend of both Classic Cottage Gardening and the New Perennial Garden Movement. So with Greg's help, you'll understand how to put together a gardener's garden - that's what he calls it - and how to maximize small spaces and incorporate Modern Cottage Gardening into your containers, which I think is such a hot topic this year. Now the back half of Greg's book is devoted to the seasons - so he walks you through Modern Cottage Gardening season by season. At the end of the book, there are fifty plant profiles, and these are Greg's go-to plants when it comes to garden design. But, right at the beginning of Greg's book, he introduces you to the Modern Cottage Garden. He writes, It is difficult to stick to one style in the garden, isn't it? Maybe this is because plants are alive, and as they grow, we get attached to them.  So we can't let go of the plant that has survived three house moves.  Or the large shrub that started life from a cutting taken from a friend's garden.   This sounds so familiar. Doesn't it? He writes, Plants are memories.  Plants can make us feel proud.  Plants tell stories.  And who can resist choosing new plants for the garden when they see them in flower in a nursery, even if they don't know where they will go or whether they are in keeping with what is there?    I just experienced this exact scenario this morning.   And then Greg writes, Let's be honest, who has a scale map of their garden, showing all the gaps, each time they find themselves looking at plants for sale?  Then as we introduce unlikely plant partners to the border, we push the boundaries of traditional garden styles, whether by accident or design.    And here is where Greg helps us get on track. He writes, This is, in fact, a good thing. The mixing together of plants from older garden styles is creating something special indeed: a new style that combines the best of the Traditional Cottage Garden and of the gardens of the New Perennial Garden Movement.  For argument's sake, let's call it the Modern Cottage Garden. This is a gardener's garden.  Its generous style is for gardeners who can't resist plants.   Can I get an Amen? The spoke is 288 pages of the Modern Cottage Garden — encouraging you to grow plants that are new to you, try new combinations or new communities of plants, and enjoy the process of experimenting in your garden. You can get a copy of The Modern Cottage Garden by Greg Loades and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $9.   Botanic Spark 1899 On this day, Lou Andreas Salomé (books about this person), the first female psychoanalyst and writer, and Rainer Maria Rilke (books about this person), the Austrian poet and writer, visited Leo Tolstoy (books about this person) in Russia. Now this entire trip was Lou's idea. She hoped that Tolstoy would be a mentor to her friend and lover, Rainer ("Rye-nur") Maria Rilke. Lou Andreas Salomé was a bit of a muse to Rainer Maria Rilke. Early in their friendship, Lou was the one who encouraged him to change his first name from René to Rainer. She also encouraged him to learn Russian and to read Tolstoy. And so that sets the stage for their meeting with Leo Tolstoy in his garden on this day, May 19th in, 1899. One account of the meeting goes like this: We no longer looked about us, but at him absorbing this landscape.  Bending down from time to time to pluck, forget me nots with a quick motion of his cup tanned as if to snatch up the odor from the stem.  He would then hold them close to his face and breathe them.  Intensely consume them as it were.  And then let them fall to the ground.   Well, it seems Leo was more interested in his garden than in becoming a mentor to Rainer Maria Rilke. But the story doesn't end there. Rainer Maria Rilke fell in love with Russia - and for a brief period with Lou Andreas Salomé. And it was during his time in Russia, Rainer wrote one of his masterpieces: a trilogy of timeless poetry called The Book of Hours.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Between 10-30% of the global population experiences allergic rhinitis, otherwise known as "hay fever," which is the most common presentation of environmental allergies.Honestly, I thought allergies were even more prevalent than this. The wide range is likely due to the fact that allergies tend to come and go, which can make them even more difficult to understand and get a handle on.Nevertheless, prescription and over-the-counter allergy medications, such as anti-histamines, are some of the most common pills to be swallowed in our world today. Even with such meds, it can be difficult to manage these symptoms... until now!No, no, no... there aren't any quick fixes to allergies. In fact, reversing allergies is a prime example of playing the long game to allow and encourage the immune system to find its innate balance.In a nutshell, the "allergens" that trigger an immune response aren't bad and we shouldn't have to fear or avoid them. The goal is to retrain and nourish the immune system to offer more resilience.

Food policy writer Corby Kummer joined Boston Public Radio to discuss a new congressional report showing meat industry CEOs had a direct line to the Donald Trump administration in the early stages of the pandemic, enabling their facilities to stay open — and their profits to grow — despite the safety risks to workers. Smithfield CEO Ken Sullivan misled the public about an impending meat shortage that they said would result if plants closed temporarily, the congressional report found. “It was this evilly-sealed deal,” Kummer said. “And among the many scandalous parts of this, which we all kind of guessed at the time: profits went up 300% during the pandemic. There was no shortage, it was completely wrong.” Sullivan reached out to Tyson CEO Noel White about getting then-President Donald Trump to sign an executive order declaring meat processing plants essential facilities, allowing them to stay open during the most stringent pandemic-era restrictions. The report found that a draft executive order written by Tyson's legal team bore striking similarities to the one signed by the president just days later. Corby Kummer is executive director of the Food and Society policy program at the Aspen Institute, a senior editor at The Atlantic and a senior lecturer at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.

Brilliant Planet plans cheap, gigaton-scale carbon capture using algae | New Atlas (01:08) Direct air carbon capture is currently far too costly – but this London company, Brilliant Planet, says it can do it at enormous scale for a tenth the price, using engineered algal blooms in ponds located near desert coastlinesGoals to de-acidify the ocean as well. Direct air capture will need to be part of the decarbonizing equation, and it'll need to be massively scalable, energy efficient and much, much cheaper than today's technology. The idea is to corral and harness the carbon-gobbling power of algae, replicating and maintaining the conditions that cause algal blooms in large, low-density outdoor ponds full of seawater.Algae is an inherently more efficient biological machine for carbon capture than trees or plants Its entire surface area is dedicated to photosynthesis and it doesn't waste resources creating trunks, roots or branches Another bonus is that it grows and proliferates extremely fast under the right conditions. Simplified process: Account for most of the energy this system requires A location is chosen, on flat desert land near a coast,  A team of bio-prospectors starts filtering through samples of thousands of local strains of algae, selecting the ones that best fits the location.  Thus, there are no introduced species, and the algae is already well adapted to the local climate and conditions. They set up a series of pumps, with which to bring seawater into a series of containers and ponds.  In these right conditions they would monitor, they can grow a lot of algae. It also can deacidify the seawater. CEO Adam Taylorm said: “For every unit of water that passes through the system we de-acidify the equivalent of 5.1 units back to pre-industrial pH levels." Taylor says the company's already identified a "short list" of about half a million square kilometers of suitably flat coastal desert land. Potential for about two gigatons – two billion tons – of carbon capture In other words, it could cancel out more than 5.5 percent of humanity's annual global CO2 emissions, offsetting about half the total emissions of today's road transport sector.  The company has tested its approach successfully in Oman, South Africa. Now they plan on moving to a large area, roughly 74 acres, in 2023. Musk's Starlink Internet Is Now Available in 32 Countries | CNET (07:14) SpaceX's Starlink satellite internet service has now rolled out to 32 countries, the company said Thursday. The hardware can ship "immediately" to areas where the service is available. Starlink is available in much of the US, Europe and New Zealand, in addition to chunks of Canada, Australia and South America. Many of the remaining countries and areas show availa
