MonaVie – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of it.

  Yes, MonaVie! Excellent product for antioxidants. It’s loaded with them, and antioxidants are of major importance to our health and longevity! I have many friends that are top producers in the marketing company for the product, and they are doing very well in it. Being the health fanatic that I am (most of the time), I seemed an ideal fit for this product in their eyes. When I was initially approached to market it to my growing network of health enthusiasts, I took a good look at it. I…

Genetically Modified Foods (GMO) Are Not Being Labeled

  GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS! YUMMY! Right? Would you believe that in the ten years that genetically modified foods (GMO) have been around, that they have not been being labeled as such?  These foods have been on the market for ten years now and the FDA does not require manufacturers to label their products that have genetically engineered ingredients in them?  Believe it!  Scary huh?  With no real testing or long term statistics in place about the ill side affects and potential hazards of genetically modified (engineered) foods (GMOs), the federal…

Dangers of Lead Poisoning

  We have all heard the jokes about people who didn’t seem to have it all together, and jesting that they were eating the lead paint off of their walls or had too much lead in their water growing up. Well, believe it or not, the jesting may have been fairly accurate. There is irrefutable evidence that increased lead in our diets (or the water we drink) is very bad for us. Here is a short list of some of the most prevalent health issues that are attributed to lead…

Dangers of Coca Cola and Similar Soft Drinks

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.  If you know anyone that drinks any sort of sweetened carbonated beverage, they all have similar results to these as tested using Coca Cola (r).  The same pretty much happens with any other soft drink so don’t run out and buy some other sort of carbonated, sugar sweetened soft drink.  The same can be said about anything with high fructose corn syrup. But, today, I just want to focus on Coca Cola. When somebody drinks a 16 oz.…

Death by High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Sugar is No Different

“Death by sugar” is not an overstatement… Evidence is mounting that sugar is the primary factor causing not just obesity, but also chronic and lethal disease. There’s really no doubt anymore that sugar is indeed toxic to your body, and it’s only a matter of time before it will be commonly accepted as a causative factor of most cancer, in the same way as we accept that smoking and alcohol abuse are direct causes of lung cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of…

The Killing of the Foods We Eat

Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization that studies the effects of pollution and other environmental issues affecting our everyday life.  Recently, they released a study on toxicity levels in infant children after analyzing the blood of newborn babies across the United States. Here is some of the information that was published about this research. In addition to discovering 287 chemicals and other toxins in their blood, they also found 76 chemicals that damage cells in humans and animals; 94 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system; and 79…

TSA Back Scatter Scanning in Airports Serious Health Risk

  I think most of us have already heard of the newest anti-terrorism tool for screening those who use commercial air travel as a mode of transportation. The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) new policy to scan people using back scatter scanning that in effect shows an Xray image of the person as if they were naked (and I mean butt naked – black and white skin and bone imaging) in 3D black and white is supposed to protect us from those individuals who are seeking to bring terror to the…
