    @jsbattlenet He didn’t say drink half your body weight in pounds, he said half your body weight in ounces, so a 150-pound person should drink 75 oz. One cup is 8 oz, so that would mean a little more than 9 cups of water, which translates into about 2 quarts. Even conventional sources often recommend 8 cups per day.

    I’m glad you didn’t hack the lemon verbina. The more varieties that are planted and the older the garden, the more perrenials become prominent. We inadvertantly become perrenial gardeners, once again we are part of nature. Isn’t ecology fun!

    @jgfergus True carbon dioxide & sparkling water in excess, aren’t good. Excess build up of carbon dioxide would cause smooth muscle to relax, including heart, and you’d pass out before lethal. However, you could die from fluid volume overload and electrolyte imbalance, prior to consuming enough sparkling water to be carbon dioxide lethal. As John said, “what are the alternatives”? Moderation is key. Also I don’t think he said drink 1/2 body weight daily, that would surly be lethal.

    @jsbattlenet
    Ok….he actually says to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces. So a 160lb person should drink 80 oz of water. That would be prudent for someone eating little high water content fruits and veggies and mostly cooked food. Myself, I rarely am thirsty for additional water because I eat lots of raw fruits and veggies. I do drink water if I am on a long bike ride or hike.

  13. jsbattlenetAug 27, 2011

    @jgfergus —–> Yep you missed it . He talks about it at around 3.07 in the video.

  14. jgfergusAug 27, 2011

    @jsbattlenet
    Maybe I missed it but I didn’t hear John say you should drink 1/2 your body weight in water. That would be utter nonsense and put extreme pressure on your kidneys. No one needs to drink more water than their natural thirst calls for. Those eating a SAD (cooked food) diet will desire more water than a raw fooder because cooked foods have had most of their water content cooked out of them. Nature’s best water is from ripe, raw fruits eaten alone on an empty stomach.

    @pinkwoolsocks
    Sparkling water is not good. The carbon dioxide used to create the bubbles is poison. Try breathing carbon dioxide for any length of time. You’ll be dead. Carbon dioxide + water forms carbonic acid which is what you are drinking. Simple rule….any natural food or drink, modified by man in a factory does not build health. Sure…our body can adapt to it like it does with other poisons. Eventually, your health will decline. Stick with water from fresh fruits & veggies.

    I try to drink as much water every day as I can but wow half your body weight. Man I would be spending most of my life p***ing LOL

    Thumbs up if you think John should make a cooking segment called “Cooking Your Greens”!

  18. ront1963Aug 27, 2011

    When you said R.O. Water… I was thinking Regular Old Water haha

    Eugenol is hepatotoxic, meaning it may cause damage to the liver….this is in cloves as well as the oil products. But like anything else you do not use large amounts of it so its not an issue. I’m not sure what other parts of the oil/plant without looking it up are toxic but you have no need to worry about it in small amounts.
    Cloves are often used in cooking.

    Wonderful video. you are so educated on everything you talk about. You should write a book! lol. A lot of my old herbal books have these in them, not for actual use but for historical matters and tell you a little about what folklore is associated with them. Again, wonderful video! Blessed Be!
