The Progressive Radio Network ran a BLOG & video on junk food organizations marketing to our kids. Take this link and watch the video. WE all need to stand up and say “ENOUGH”! America is getting sicker but we are all adults and make our own decisions but when the kids are getting sicker we need to stand up and help them. These diseases can be stopped simply by eating what our bodies were built to eat. Why do we worry more about what we feed our pets and cars than we do our children?

Is Natural always Good for us?

Edible non poisonous natural foods are always much better than processed man-made foods. There still are poisonous natural foods out there and some are closer than you think. The seeds in an apple are very toxic and if enough where ingested can be fatal (amygdalin, a cyanogenic glycoside). Tomato leaves and stems are toxic as well (solanine). Potatoes also contain a toxic (glycoalkaloids). There are many others as well. Good edible organic food will help you live a healthy life.

As I always say it is not about dying. We could be in an accident and die even though we are very healthy. But being healthy leads to an independent good life in later years. No one wants to be house bound or not able to control kidney or bowl functions. It makes us feel in human. Health is the answer and its right in front of us … the plant kingdom.

We are becoming an infected species. Drugs are not the answer. They cure NOTHING! They only affect symptoms and make us dependent for life while people get rich on their sales. Genetic modification of crops is NOT the answer. We really don’t understand all the ramifications of modified foods on our epigenetics. This can be very dangerous. What is the answer? Eating crops that are natural, edible by mankind, organic and grown the way they use to be. Nature has been at this a lot longer than man. It knows what is healthy for us and it makes no money off of it!

Dr Greger says Enzyme inhibitors in fruits and vegetables may help explain the improvement in mood associated with switching to a plant-based diet.

Is Organic Really Better for you and your Family?

Organic Foods

You better believe it is! My sister Kathy sent me an article on eating organics from the American Academy of Pediatrics. It says eating organic can reduce risk of many diseases. Starting children on organics early can prevent a buildup of toxins in their bodies and help them live a health life. The question really is do you believe food created naturally by God/nature is better for you than food created by man? If you do, why are you still buying so many cans, bottles, jars, boxes and frozen bags of food? People say to me they don’t like organic foods. I tell them just sprinkle some lawn fertilizer on it and you have what is sold in most supermarkets.

I get a monthly newsletter from my health insurance company. This month had an article on diet and health. I was very interested in what they would say. It started out saying our health is predicated by our diet. Now I was hooked. The article went on to list a series of things to do for improved health. They were all portion size comments. What a letdown. There is so much real information out there on valid studies showing which food groups are healthy and which are unhealthy, why don’t we see it published in insurance companies? Health is BIG business in America! People are getting smarter and researching their own information. If you want to be healthy … just do it!

Sugar, Sugar, Ah Honey, Honey – it’s all the Same

Are all sugars the same? Lately there has been a rash of TV commercials saying all sugars are the same. This is not true! Fruit has sugar that is mixed in with fiber. The package counts! The sugar by itself may be the same but dressed up in its package changes everything. The proof is in the Glycemic Index values. Raw and fake sugars usually are a 100 on this index (the highest you can go). Fruits are much lower 30 to 50 on the index. This indicates that are bodies can assimilate this type of sugar slower and the impact is less likely to cause diseases like diabetes.

Entrepreneurs look for new trends that will lead to new products and businesses in the future. A great entrepreneur rides the wave up this new trend to the top. We have a new trend just starting today that may be the largest trend we have ever seen or are likely to see in our lifetimes. It is the epigenetic trend front! It will affect all of our lives, our health, our happiness and even how we age in the future. unfortunately this trend will also make a lot more money for the drug czars. The entrepreneurs getting involved in this front will be the people we look to and read about in our future.
