  6. JD says:

    @ Marc — That one little quote is so insightful.

    It’s along the lines of his other one about cells and health:

    “The quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of the life of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell life-nor a biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.”
