March 25, 2010

I read an article on Naturalnews today about hormones in U.S. raised beef and had to share it with you because it just made me MAD. I can accept that to buy the best meat (pastured & local) I need to specifically purchase it from a small farm, but the beef that most people buy […]

I received the following email today and enjoyed the way it presented valuable information in a common sense format.

About a month ago, I began writing this post to inform you that I don’t think there’s ever been an ingredient so sneaky and nasty as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Now I’m writing not just to tell you, but to plead to you- avoid HFCS at all costs! This will be a difficult task […]

This is not a political blog, but that doesn’t mean the authors don’t have their opinions, and further, the changing political climate has some heavy implications on the future of health care (and many other things).
