Health Checkup

No, not the market’s, mine. I’m out today for a routine checkup of my precious bodily fluids, pressures, and other vitals. We’ll see whether all the raw carrots, cherry juice, apple cider vinegar, supplements, and daily bicycle rides have amounted to anything. See you back here tomorrow!

    If you’re already inclined toward carrot juice health drinks, read “The China Study” by T. Colin Campbell for a violent shove in the direction of a green diet.

      Care to expand in the time between now and when I get the book? For example, does green diet refer to green vegetables as opposed to orange ones? What are the primary conclusions of the study?

        The China Study is primarily about how the evidence in nutrition research leads to the conclusion that a diet of 90%+ plant based, whole foods is shown to reduce or eliminate the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. The book advocates doing away with animal proteins in all forms in favor of plant based (green) proteins in order to minimize one’s risk of several typical “western” diseases.

          I see! Thank you for explaining. I’ve been researching diets recently, with a focus on going alkaline, so this suggestion comes at a good time.

    I don’t want to know about your body fluids unless they can help me with some stock picks.

      Um, I understand why you might feel that way, but isn’t it kind of unnecessary to state that? It was a short post that could be read rather quickly and so didn’t waste much time (if you consider the time to be wasted). Also, if Jason Kelly was thinking the same way as the post, than he shouldn’t care about your comment unless it helps him make money just as you claim not to care about his posts unless they help pick stocks…again, no offense meant: its just that some people don’t feel the same way.

    I hope your health check up went well, too.

      It did go well. Thank you for the hope!

      On the measurements you asked for, they are discussed in the book under O’Neil’s CANSLIM system (the “I” is for institutional sponsorship, page 68) and accumulation/distribution rating on page 162.

    I just finished the 2004 edition of your book, “Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing” (it is) , and you did not discuss sponsorship or accumulation/distribution. ARE THESE NEW INDICES since 2004 , AND HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU THINK THEY ARE?
    IBD seems to think they are pretty important.
