- Does looking good have to hurt?
- Why do we alter our bodies? (shaving, tattooing, piercing, bodyshaping clothing, cosmetics, plastic surgery)
- Are there any implications on our health because of it?
- Do we as a society reward disease and discourage health?
While this might be one of the most non medical shows we've done, I think it's one of the most important because it causes us to ask questions about some of the things we have been led to believe in society.
WHY do we think the way we do???
WHY do we hate ourselves so much we feel we need to be altered?
A careful examination of the issues addressed in this show will lead you on your way to freedom!!!
Sydney Ross Singer is a medical anthropologist, the author of several groundbreaking and controversial health books, and the director of the Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease, located in Hawaii. He is internationally recognized for his revolutionary and shocking research linking breast cancer with the wearing of tight bras, which he describes in his book, Dressed To Kill.
Trained in biochemistry, anthropology and medicine, Sydney is pioneering a new field of health research, called Applied Medical Anthropology, shedding light on the many ways our culture is making us sick. Since his work often challenges industries that promote or profit from damaging lifestyles, much of his research has been suppressed and censored, especially by the medical industry.

Part 1 of 2:
Do you alter your body and why?
I am not saying it is bad to do so, as there are many reasons people make these choices...if it makes you feel good, then by all means, you SHOULD be doing it!
But if you are doing things to yourself that DO NOT FEEL GOOD, then might I suggest you start asking yourself WHY you are doing these thing?
Blessings and Love,
