Combo shots: don’t stick me with that By Rocco Castellano Last week I gave you some of the most ridiculous vaccines that should never make their way into a newborn baby’s body but Measles, Mumps and Rubella or MMR vaccine is one of those that I’m on the fence about. Very few kids or adults […]

Vaccines: The good, the bad and the ugly By Rocco Castellano This has got to be one of the most controversial subjects I’ll write about, except maybe abortion. I may try to tackle that in the future, but for now it’s vaccines. Most of you who read my column know that my wife just had […]

Hurt by the bell By Marsha Bonhart I am not an abusive parent. However, yes, I admit to using what could be considered unethical tactics to encourage my younger son to get out of bed on school mornings.

Estrogen: the enemy among us By Rocco Castellano A while ago, I wrote a column called “Soy Meets World” that was basically a wild rant against the pieces of shit that allow this so-called nutrient to invade every crevice of our food supply. As unaware participants in an obvious population reduction experiment… wait a second… […]

The best motivation to start exercising By Rocco Castellano I get asked this question many times a year. It’s become one of my staple questions in my FAQs. “What is the best motivation to help me start exercising?” As you know, I’m not really a big fan of drone-like, repetitive, same-thing-every-other-day stupid shit.

Thin is out, symmetry is in By Rocco Castellano Some of the dumbest things I hear when I’m asked about women lifting weights never stop amazing me. One such phrase is, “I don’t want to lift weights because it will give me muscle… and I will look like a man.” I wish these women would […]

B.S., in and out By Rocco Castellano   Calories in… calories out. Dumbest shit I have ever read or heard. As a fitness professional for a majority of my life (save my toddler years), I have heard this phrase again and again. It still annoys me to no end. It tells me the person speaking […]

Save your brain By Jayne Powers Our bodies have touch points that require not only adequate nutrition but proper nutrition. For example, our hearts benefit from eating foods low in sodium.

Obviously Congress is trying to kill us By Rocco Castellano   If you are a human being in America, it is time for you to wake the f–k up and know that our government is literally run by idiots and assholes. This new law, which is likely to pass, proves my point exactly. Known as […]
