Study Notes for The Quilt - Living an Optimized Life "My Epiphany..."

Here's the link:  http://jackkruse.com/my-epiphany-for-your-future%E2%80%A6%E2%80%A6/

So, here are the notes:
1.  Surgery sure has changed over the years.  Check out my link to a cool Ted lecture about the latest surgery tools.
2.  I want to make it so you never have to have surgery.
3.  We need to take care of our cells => no degenerative diseases => no surgeries
4.  The surgery machine costs 2 million dollars.
5.  Wouldn't it be cool if we took that 2 million dollars and used it to teach people how to avoid surgery?
6.  My epiphany?  Change your thinking......
7.  ....How to avoid surgery?  Eat a paleo diet and get leptin sensitive.

Here are some other interesting links.  Dr. K links to Catherine Mohr's TED lecture on robotics in surgery.  Kinda gross, but also really cool if you are into that sort of thing.  http://www.ted.com/talks/catherine_mohr_surgery_s_past_present_and_robotic_future.html
Here's some info on leptin:
