I already did a post on drinking soda, but here is a post to a blog I subscribe to. Grab your sugar cubes and start popping . It will be a lot of chewing until you eat as much sugar as are in one bottle of coke.

According to a recent study, drinking just ONE regular soda a day equals FIFTY POUNDS of sugar in a year, leading to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease! If you’re a soda drinker, try swapping it for water and watch some pounds fall off!

DIET drinks are NOT any better…they contain ASPARTAME which acts as a neurotoxin and is linked to CANCER.  Studies have found diet sodas to cause migraines and increase risk of obesity and heart disease.

Harmful Effects of Soda #INFOGRAPHIC

It is with heartfelt sadness that I make this confession: Two weeks ago, I was at a friends house and I drank a… …. … Coca Cola.

Where’s My Kashi? (Kashi Cereal Scam)

..and here we thought we could trust Kashi…

Thanks Beth McShane: https://plus.google.com/110544122316042349582/posts

That is if you didn’t know that Kashi is owned by food giant Kellogg’s.

Just say NO to GMO!

Today, organic has gone mainstream, as the chart below shows.

In fact, companies like Pepsi, CocaCola, Nestle, Kellogg, Heinz, Cargill, Dean, Kraft,
Hershey, Cadbury, M&M Mars, ConAgra and General Mills “own” organic.


That’s not to say that all organics are bad. They aren’t, but “organic” has become
industrialized big business and is owned by companies that aren’t
typically known for their health emphasis.
You might call it “industrial organic.”

Check out my most recent post about “All Natural Foods” found in such stores as Trader Joes, Earth Fare, and Whole Foods and also my post about “Disgusting Ingredients found in your food

I recommend Beyond Organic, a company started by nutrition expert, Jordan Rubin. It is a new way to eat the very best organic foods and beverages out there.

Disgusting Ingredients Found in Our Foods

Things that make you say “DISGUSTING!”

Pink slime has had its fair share of people’s attention these past few months, and for good reason. (more on pink slime here) People are waking up to the reality that the companies creating, distributing, and processing their foods don’t have our health on the top of their list of priorities.

The more we look into these processed foods the worse it gets…  my friend Adam (a health conscious fellow) had this to say as he browsed some online news sources:

So, I was just reading this and was sickened to discovered more things that has snuck into our food that I was unaware of. (1) Castoreum – The anal secretion of a beaver used to make some hard candy smell sweet and enhance the flavor of “natural” berry flavors (2) L-Cysteine – A dough conditioner made from human hair (3) Shellac, resin from a lac bug [aka. confectioner’s glaze] – Makes hard candy like jelly beans shiny (4) Cellulose [aka. wood pulp] – Used to thicken and wick moisture, in place of flour, in things like shredded cheese, salad dressing, and chocolate milk. Just…wow. Source Here.

And it goes on and on. Just search “In our food” in google and look at recent posts. I found this today, Headline: “There May Be Flame Retardants in Your Continue reading

Anti-GMO Action Steps

How can I help rid the world of GMO Foods?

Here are some daily anti-gmo steps that you can do to truly make a difference:

  • Say no to Genetically Modified Foods!Vote with your dollars!  Make it a priority to buy non-GMO items at grocery stores, restaurants or online food stores.
  • Speak to grocery store managers to request that they stock more non-GMO items.  Store managers will likely be uninformed about GMOs, and this is your chance to educate them about the dangers of genetically modified foods.   Once they become aware and informed, they’ll be able to share the information with fellow managers and workers and with other shoppers.  When we take the time to help educate just one person, that information spreads out in a ripple effect!
  • While you’re eating out, ask servers and managers if they have non-GMO items available.  Again, this is your chance to educate others and help spread the word about GMOs! Continue reading
