I'm a private pilot, and I remember talking to another recreational pilot once. He told me that he'd never feel comfortable with a "true believer" in the cockpit because he'd be too likely, when faced with an imminent disaster, to say "well, it's God's will." I have to agree; I'd want someone who believes that there's nowhere to go after you die to be in charge of saving my life!
On another doctor note, I just found out about the acid/alkaline theory of medicine. Apparently almost every disease is caused by eating food that makes our blood to acidic (I know this doesn't happen, but that's the theory).
According to this article
diseases caused by acidic blood include:
Accelerated Aging, Acid Indigestion, Acid Reflux, Acne, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Age Spots (Liver Spots), Agitation, Alcoholic Tremors, Allergies, Alzheimer's Disease, Aneurysm, Anger, Anxiety Disorders, Arterial Plaque, Arthritis, Asthma, Back Pain, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) , Benign Tumors, Birth Defects, Blackheads, Bleeding Gums , Blood Clots, Bone Disorders, Body Odor, Bone Loss, Cancer, Candida, Cardiomyopathy (Enlarged Heart), Cardiovascular Disease, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Cholesterol (Elevated), Chronic Fatigue, Cold Sores, Colds, Constipation, Cysts, Diabetes, Eczema, Endometriosis, Estrogen Dominance, Eye Twitches, Fear, Fibroid Tumors, Fibromyalgia, Fingernails (White Spots, Brittle, Ridges), Flu, Fluid Retention, Fractures (Broken Bones), Gallstones, Gastritis, Gout, Gray Hair, Growths, Hair Disorders, Hair Loss, Headaches, Heart Palpitations, Herpes Outbreaks, High Blood Pressure, High LDL Cholesterol, Hyperactivity, Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar), Impotence, Infections, Infertility, Insomnia, Irregular Heartbeats, Jerkiness, Kidney Stones, Loss Of Appetite, Loss Of Smell, Low Energy, Lupus , Malignant Tumors, Menstrual Cramps, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Moles, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscle Cramps, Muscular Disorders, Muscular System, Nasal Congestion, Natural Antacid [Fast Absorption], Nerve Disorders, Nervousness, OCD, Osteoporosis, Overweight, Panic Attacks, Parkinson's Disease, Plaque On Heart And Arteries, Plaque On Teeth, PMS, Poor Circulation, Sarcoidosis, Scleroderma, Seizure Disorders, Skin Tags, Sluggish Gallbladder, Spasms, Stiffness, Stuttering, Teeth And Gum Disorders, Teeth Grinding, Tension, Tics, Tightness, Tinnitus (Ringing In Ears), TMJ, Tuberculosis, Tumors, Twitches, Varicose Veins, Warts, and Wrinkled And Sagging Skin.
All I can say is "Wow!"
And, according to this site
, to avoid having acidic blood we should avoid eating pig meat, beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, all mushrooms, peanuts, cashews, dairy products including milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice-cream, and butter, eggs, barley, corn, stored grains and cereals, stored potatoes, alcohol, tobacco, breads, sugar including honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, sucrose, vinegar, caffeine in any form (coffee, soda pop, oranges), high fructose fruits, hydrogenated oils like margarine and shortening, vegetable oils.
