Why is it so hard to get certain ideas out of your mind?

During a conversation on the radio Annie Schreijer Pierik of the European parliament said that meat is incomparable with meat substitutes. Subsequently, the Vegetarian butcher explained clearly to her that meat substitutes are healthier than real meat. But Schreijer Pierik didn't respond to that at all. How is that possible?

‘Let’s try together to find the simpler solutions’

As mankind we have some of big issues to solve at the moment. What strikes me is that we tend to come with solutions that are fully unrealistic, while there are much simpler solutions available too.

Let’s also try to learn from others when it comes to ethical issues

Corona virus

There is a debate about whether we should do everything we can to protect our health against Corona, or whether we should make sure that the economy doesn't suffer too much from all this. I think this debate is short-sighted, for we should discuss the causes.» Read this blog

In order to stimulate us to exercise more, step counters are created. The idea is: 10.000 steps a day and you have done enough. I have tried one and have noticed that it is also a one-sided way to get us upon our feet.» Read this blog

Old systems are more and more often being replaced by new technologies. That seems to be a good development, but is it always? Last week there was a resurgence of the discussion concerning the Dutch air alarm system. This seems to be an old fashion system, but it is more important than it...» Read this blog

Vaginal douches aren't as safe as they sound. In the consumer program Kassa they blame vloggers for the fact that many people use them anyway. I don't think that this is justified. This problem is bigger than that.» Read this blog
