The Fourth of July holiday is one of the biggest weekends for meat sales (150 million wieners).
You know enough not to take antibiotics everyday just to keep from getting sick, since it weakens their effectiveness for when you really need them. But most conventional beef, poultry and pork sold in our grocery stores come from animals routinely fed antibiotics to promote their growth or so they can survive in filthy feedlots, rather than just giving them medicine when they are sick.
All this overuse on livestock is contributing to the spread of antibiotic-resistant ‘superbugs’ in both animals and people. Unless we stop this practice, there may be a day when our antibiotics no longer work.

If you’re a wealthy rich person and can’t find real food to buy to eat, how then, your fortune would serve you? Time is running out. It’s now, or it may be never! Passing this state law in California will have the same impact as a national labeling law. For the first time in the US, the decision will be put into the hands of voters, YOU. This is the final hope for Americans to achieve basic GMO labeling- Proposition 37: Your Right To Know
It’s your future, the future of your children even more it’s the future of the planet your origin home!
If you don’t know what is GMO or GM Food (Genetically Modified Organism) or (Genetically Modified Food) watch any of these short YouTube videos about Monsanto-An Evil Company and make a conscious choice.
Even worse, are big large corporations, The Organic Trade Associations stab organic consumers on the back (red section)?
50 countries around the world do GMO labeling, including Russia, China and the entire EU.
Real raw almonds have tremendous health benefits. They are an excellent source of manganese, copper, and vitamin B2 (all of which are important for the body’s energy production). Almonds are rich in magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and vitamin E, and high in health-promoting monounsaturated fatty acids and many other nutrients.
Raw almonds (with no heat applied) are particularly healthy. According to USDA data, raw almonds have more calcium, iron, potassium, fiber, manganese, and vitamin E.
According to the Almond Board, five methods of “pasteurization” are permitted: oil roasting, dry roasting, blanching, steam processing, and the use of propylene oxide (PPO). A sixth method involved irradiating the almonds, and this was used for a number of years, but now the Almond Board states that “Almond pasteurization does not include irradiation.”
The material safety data sheet for PPO warns:
Causes gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It may cause central nervous system depression, characterized by excitement, followed by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. Advanced stages may cause collapse, unconsciousness, coma and possible death due to respiratory failure. Aspiration of material into the lungs may cause chemical pneumonitis, which may be fatal….May cause reproductive and fetal effects. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects. May cause heritable genetic damage.
If you suffer from migraine or not you may experience any of above health symptoms. But, how can you predict that any of these symptoms can be due to eating what it supposed to be a really healthy nutritious food? And, most of the time ended up wandering:
It’s labeled as raw!
I trust and want to support local farmers market…
Where is the truth and what to do?
When suffering from any health problem the first thing you need to do is to look in your ‘box’, your environment, your food and your drink before searching out of the box.
According to Dr. Mercola, “if you are actually drinking soda as a beverage, you are putting your health at risk every time you do so. Drinking just one soda a day can increase your risk of being obese by an amazing 60 percent. And it will increase your risk of diabetes by 85 percent! Soda drinkers even have a higher throat cancer risk.
From a nutritional standpoint, soda has pretty much nothing to offer except bad news– including the ridiculous new “healthy” sodas that have hit the stores recently. Some of the major components of a can of soda include:
Phosphoric Acid: This can interfere with your body’s ability to use calcium, which can lead to osteoporosis or softening of your teeth and bones.
Sugar: It is a proven fact that sugar increases insulin levels, which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, premature aging and many more negative side effects. Most sodas include over 100 percent of the RDA of sugar, usually in the form of high fructose corn syrup, the number one source of calories in the U.S.
Caffeine: Caffeinated drinks cause jitters, insomnia, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood cholesterol levels, vitamin and mineral depletion, breast lumps, birth defects, and possibly some forms of cancer.
If you thought diet sodas might be a better option, think again. They are filled with unnatural, artificial chemicals, and are actually even worse the regular soda. There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame (Equal) alone, including brain tumors, birth defects, diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures. On top of all that, they won’t even help you lose weight; in fact, they will double your risk of obesity by stimulating your appetite, increasing your carbohydrate cravings, and activating your body’s fat storage mechanisms. If you have suffered from an adverse reaction to any aspartame product, contact the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in your area.
Nutritionally speaking, soda is one of the main reasons why many people suffer health problems. Aside from the negative effects of the soda itself, drinking a lot of soda is likely to leave you with little appetite for vegetables, protein and other food that your body needs.
If you struggle with an addiction to soda (sugar is actually more addictive than cocaine), I strongly recommend you consider Turbo Tapping, a simple yet highly effective tool that will help you stop this health-harming habit.
And remember that a glass of fresh clean water with a squeeze of lemon or lime makes a great soda alternative any day.
However, soda provides some benefit such as:
If soda can really do such harsh things, what does it do to your internal body-YOU?
Are these Health Problems sound familiar to you?
Change in vision
Poor equilibrium (bodily balance, emotional stability)
Change in heart rate – heart palpitations
Fatigue and weakness
Neurological/behavioral symptoms including headaches, dizziness, and mood changes such as depression and anxiety, seizure and convulsion
Gastrointestinal symptoms including nausea and vomiting, abdominal cramps/pain and diarrhea
Allergic type and/or dermatologic symptoms including hives and rash
Alterations in menstrual patterns
Guess what is causing all the above health problems?
It’s any kind or brand of artificial sweeteners.
Here’s a list of some of them: Saccharin (Seet’N Low), aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet, Amino Sweet, Canderel, Natra Tase, Spoonful, Neotame), and sucralose (Splenda).
Check out the following information:

Aspartame is known as a cancer-causing compound in rats. It’s composed of aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. It was approved for food use by the FDA in 1981. The brand names of Aspartame are: NutraSweet, along with Equal, Spoonful, Indulge, Equal-Measure, etc…
Aspartame was discovered by accident in 1965 when a chemist with G.D. Searle Pharmaceutical was testing an anti-ulcer drug. He happened to lick his hand, and the rest is history… Aspartame kills brain neurons. Russell L. Blaylock, professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi’s Medical Center, explains in his book Excito-toxins: The Taste That Kills that though aspartame and glutamate (in the chemically related substance MSG) is a neurotransmitter normally found in the brain and spinal cord.
When aspartame reaches certain levels it causes the death of brain neurons. The risk to infants, children, and pregnant women are higher because the blood/brain barrier, which normally protect the brain, is not fully developed until adulthood.
Dr. Blaylock and numerous other experts believe that long-term exposure to excito-toxins may play a part in diseases such as: Brain lesions and tumors, Early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease, Epilepsy, Hearing problems, Lupus, Memory loss, Multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.
(2) One study found that high aspartame levels affect cellular enzyme activity, interfering with antioxidants and with non-nutritive additives like commonly used food coloring agents, found a cumulative effect that increased cellular toxicity to significant levels (Lau et. al., 2006).
No chemicals in our bodies are isolated so compounds such as aspartame will interact with food, alcohol, medicines and environmental toxins in unique and unpredictable ways. We need to minimize chemical soup in our blood.
For two decades the aspartame controversy has continued to simmer, leaving respectable organizations with opposing verdicts. The American Diabetes Association (ADA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the Epilepsy Institute endorse aspartame as safe (though it is a matter of record that several of these organizations have received donation from NutraSweet).
Products Contain Aspartame- Black list of Aspartame
Beware of food products containing these words: “Lite”, “Diet”, “Low-calorie” and “No calorie”.
Among these are: Diet iced teas, Diet soft drinks, Crystal Light, Yogurt lite, Diet Jell-O, Some cereals, and Some children’s vitamins. (3)
The unprecedented number of complaints caused the FDA to call in the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), who concluded that adverse reactions to aspartame were occurring in “unusually sensitive” individuals, but that there was insufficient evidence to prove existence of wide-spread health problems attributable to its consumption.
