Congratulations indeed, but we are better off some nasty habits and too much beer is simply one of them, it really gets us off our balance, not to mention the addiction.
Beer does make ladies look better. Considering 70% of the adult population is either fat or obese, I need a hell of a lot of beer before I even get to a bar.wander_n_wonder said:Also, I think beer is not good for the healthy overall, and so we must really stay away from it.
Thank you for clarifying especially for people who might think that it's a good idea to drink and run or drink and ride!new_rider said:Quote:

It's a mistake to compare either ourselves with the Tarahumara with the average american, or to compare their beer with ours.
As far as the beer sold in the US, it contains:
Propylene Glycol (an ingredient found in anti-freeze)
carinogenic food coloring
food dye made from petroleum
genetically modified corn syrup
It should go without saying that beer, as manufactured for american consumption, is thoroughly toxic.
A naturally brewed, fresh corn beer has absolutely no resemblance to the toxic sludge which we call beer sold in american supermarkets.
Also, apart from their consumption of fresh, natural beer, their diet is very healthy.
â€œItâ€™s mostly beans, squash, chilli peppers, wild greens, ground corn and chia.â€ (Chia is a seed that can absorb more than 12 times its weight in water, and is available online at www.amazon.com)
The Tarahumaraâ€™s favourite drink, apart from home-brewed corn beer, is a little concoction whipped up by dissolving chia seeds in water and adding a little sugar and a squirt of lime. As tiny as those seeds are, theyâ€™re packed with omega-3s, protein, fibres and antioxidants.
It should also go without saying that the level and type of physical activity of the Tarahumara is much higher and much more varied than the average american.
Therefore, it is illogical and highly misleading to suggest that an average american, drinking american beer, can come anywhere close to approximating the physical endurance of the tarahumara.
edit: I should add that those smooth, unvarying roads are not what you need to improve coordination or strength. You actually need to engage in varied activities and exercise in order to 'shock' your body into new muscle development.
edit 2: as I suspected, the tara beer is a low alcohol, high carb drink which provides a lot of energy without any of the garbage preservatives and additives of the commercial product sold in the 'industrialized' world.
It provides energy but an enormous amount would have to be consumed in order to get a 'buzz.' Meanwhile, we drink beer strictly in order to get buzzed, not because of any nutritional value.
The lesson to be learned is that if you are going to drink beer, make it yourself, from the freshest natural ingredients, and drink it while consuming very fresh fruits and vegetables.
edit 3: it also appears as if the shoes we use promote a heel strike, which promotes injuries. The shoes we use are overly protective, and tend to take on the job of shock absorption which would normally allow our muscles to grow.
This is all very sad.
We are supposed to the most technologically advanced culture on earth and all this is doing is making us fatter, more sedentary and less physically fit than ever before.
