    Some of the statistics that this site gives are startling. Is it true? The documentary they showed was definitely slanted and what they say on the site is a bit grotesque.

    Good stuff whitewolf. I am currently acclimating myself to a hot Texas summer with no air conditioning because I don't want to pay a hefty electric bill every month, and because I feel too dependent on luxury-type things, like air-conditioning (consumer-conditioning?). Heat, now that may be a different story; I'll see.

    At first, the lack of AC was a little hard and a little bit of a shock to my system, but after about two weeks, I think my body actually adapted to the change, and now I am perfectly happy in 110 degree (F) weather with no AC. Of course I sweat some, but that is helping me lose some weight too.

    Good all around I think.

    This may not be exactly what the site above is about, but it sounded close to me in theory. I encourage all to try to be less dependent on "the machine."

    This is not soley an Amrican trend. I remember reading a while ago an article in Nature on this being a problem in China; I'll go look for the link.

    This article perhaps may be of interest as well.
