Why Choosing Organic Is Much More Than Just Your Health

Posted on July 11th, 2010 in children, environment, organic, toxins, video | 2 Comments »

Although choosing organically grown food is one of the most important choices you can make for your and your children's health, the implications of that choice go much further.

Watch this video that show why making the choice to eat organically grown foods is one of the most important choices you can make in your life.

Another Reason To Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

Posted on January 30th, 2009 in high fructose corn syrup, junk food, mercury, processed foods, sugar, toxins | 1 Comment »

The use of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) has grown exponentially over the past few decades as a replacement for sugar in processed foods.

Besides the inherent health dangers of HFCS itself, a recent study published in Environmental Health by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) found Mercury in more than 1/3 of popular processed foods that contained HFCS as the first or second ingredient. "Mercury is toxic in all its forms", noted the co-author David Wallinga, MD.

HFCS is normally found in breads, sweetened beverages, cereals, breakfast bars, yogurt, soups, luncheon meats, dressings, condiments and many other processed foods. Americans consume on average about 12 teaspoons of HFCS a day, and teenagers and high consumption consumers can consume 80% over this average. That's a lot of HFCS, and now we know, a lot of Mercury intake.

The best alternative for your health is to avoid processed foods completely. If you do eat processed foods, carefully inspect the labels and at least avoid those containing HFCS.

To your best health!
