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:

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 →

CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a newly discovered good fat called that may be a potent cancer fighter and its something you NEED to know about! In animal studies, very small amounts of CLA have blocked all three stages of cancer: 1) initiation, 2) promotion, and 3) metastasis. Most anti-cancer agents block only one of these stages!
