Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2013
With a recent Gallup poll showing 58% of Americans support ending marijuana prohibition, Publius, pen name for The Cannabis Papers: A citizens guide to cannabinoids (2011), notes the growing importance of any disconnect between our cannabinoid systems, healthcare, and what we weigh.
When we were writing The Cannabis Papers, recalled Bryan W. Brickner (part of Publius), we thought of the book as 36 spokes (chapters) with the Introduction and Potscript forming the hub of the wheel: the human cannabinoid system works in a similar manner.
Body systems have to work together, continued Brickner. Imagine the digestive, endocrine and circulatory systems all in need at once; since the cannabinoid system modulates all other systems in the body (it hears them, so to speak), it works as the hub a central part that energies radiate from to balance our diet and health.
According to research, the cannabinoid system facilitates energy intake (diet) and enhances energy storage and expenditure by influencing lipid and glucose metabolism.
With the 2011 publication of The Cannabis Papers, noted Brickner, we knew what the science was saying that our ignorance was hurting us and that it impacted things like obesity. Now, two years later, in the midst of the Affordable Healthcare implementation, I think wed all be healthier, wealthier and wiser if we took a look inside ourselves at our hub and start seeing the cannabinoids that are in all of us.
Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include The Promise Keepers (1999), Article the first of the Bill of Rights (2006), and The Book of the Is (2013).
The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.

Landmark: The Inside Story of America’s New Health-Care Law-The Affordable Care Act-and What It Means for Us All (Publicaffairs Reports)
What now? Despite the rancorous, divisive, year-long debate in Washington, many Americans still don’t understand what the historic overhaul of the health care system will—or won’t—mean. In Landmark, the national reporting staff of The Washington Post pierces through the confusion, examining the new law’s likely impact on us all: our families, doctors, hospitals, health care providers, insurers, and other parts of a health care system that has grown to occupy one-sixth of the U.S. economy.
Landmark’s behind-the-scenes narrative reveals how just how close the law came to defeat, as well as the compromises and deals that President Obama and his Democratic majority in Congress made in achieving what has eluded their predecessors for the past seventy-five years: A legislative package that expands and transforms American health care coverage.
Landmark is an invaluable resource for anyone eager to understand the changes coming our way.
