MRI, Quick Train at Crossfit and Marty's Article

Got the MRI on my neck this morning. Not fun but like anything else, should be worth it to get a clear diagnosis and fix the pain. I could have opted for the open MRI but they said it was not as accurate so I zoned out and prayed a lot for 30 minutes and made it through.
Great quick train at Crossfit Everstrong last night. Initially it was just Paul and Me getting together to work on swings and then before it was over we had 7 people swinging iron around. Should be some sore hammies today.
If you get a chance check out Marty's site. There is a link on my side banner. I completely agree about the fat food mania and estrogen issues in America. It amazes me how people belly up to the trough and then go to the doctor to get meds for their high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, back problems, etc, etc. Of course even more disturbing is the whole pharmaceutical (sp) industry selling you a pill that treats the symptom not the cause. Would you rather have a pill for $500 that you take one time and cure the problem or one that costs $1 that you take every day for the rest of your life. Did you know that 80% of the food consumed at McDonalds is consumed by 20% of the customers? I digress. Check out Paul Zane Pilzer's Perfect Storm.
I don't really buy into the whole thing about soy products. I was told by Dr. William Kraemer, who is a world reknown scientist that he fed a rat 1/2 it's body weight for 6 months before estrogen showed up. I doubt switching your cow milk for soy milk will hurt you. I have always been a proponent of moderation with consistency.
Ya'll have a great weekend and practice your swings.
