This week James from Survival Punk interviewed Paul on his podcast. They talked about basically, "what the fuck is permaculture", how to get started doing it, how to stay cool in the heat, and even a little bit about hippies too. Here is the link to the podcast:

Great discussion/interview. In reference to the permaculture path and how we are all at different places, I like to think of this as rungs on a ladder. If you are at the bottom, you certainly do not skip to the top. Step by step you climb, and quite honestly, this particular ladder never ends. I like that!

The part that most inspired me was when Paul was talking about cancer. When I was young, people didn't even say the word "cancer" in public. Almost nobody got it and it was a death sentence. Now corporations are involved. Everyone over 50 knows someone who has had cancer and cancer is a thriving business! People make millions off of it. They can't get off the money they depend on.

The doctors and health sites I've talked to echoed Paul's comment that "we all have cancer". The best way to stop it is to prevent it, by eating things that stop cancer, and not eating things that cause cancer, like too much sugar and protein. Also exercise. We can make a permaculture/survival way to fight cancer. It will be cheap, easy and healthy.

These three doctors have very informative health sites. The first two lean toward vegan/vegetarian, and the last two lean toward eating pastured meats and animal products. I am not a doctor so I am fascinated by what they agree on (2/3 of it) and what they don't agree on.

I think in many ways, cancer is a symptom of short-sighted choices we make in our culture and in our lives.
